Militia Bugler

triproberts12 on Isperia's Super Budget Flying Circus

The one thing I would think about when you tune your list is the limiting factors in what you want to do. Peregrine Drake is a nice choice with Isperia, but while you can grab that half at any time, WU is a challenging combination for grabbing Deadeye Navigator, especially on a budget. You have Archaeomancer and an ETB subtheme, so why not include some number of Ghostly Flicker, Displace, Illusionist's Stratagem, and Mnemonic Wall? Dusk / Dawn would be a good late-game finisher that can bring all the pieces back, and cards like Militia Bugler that care about low toughness would allow the deck a bit of filtering in place of tutors.

Magnanimous on How would you "fix" white

Pervavita I think card draw should stay out of white. Militia Bugler is fine for card advantage and white's kinda unique in the way it gets card advantage through anything other than direct card draw. So I don't like Rhystic Study effects as the new white thing and WotC wants white to move away from taxes anyway. I also feel like flashback and rebound is really not what white is about and maybe reanimation could fit that niche instead.

On life gain, I don't like "Gain X life" cards and would much prefer something like Soul's Attendant that triggers when you play a creature, or an enchantment, or some other white thing. Additionally, white could be incentivized to not lose life with cards like Luminarch Ascension .

Card advantage is it's main drawback right now regardless of the format. So White needs to find a spot that fits it's color pie and tie card draw to that and remove it from another color if need be.


  • Tied to small creatures (Remove Green from having the all creatures card draw and leave it with just large creatures).

  • Tied to life gain, as life gain in of it's self is seldom worth it make the cost so low like or or just free even if an amount of life is tied to the free cost.

  • Card draw via Taxes like Rhystic Study .

  • Enchantress, Enchantment ETB draw a card (Green loses this).

  • value creatures/spells that have more effects when cast (2 for 1's) and/or some form of Flashback/Rebound that gets just more millage out of your spells. White has done this but the cost is just too high for too little impact.

  • More creatures with ETB draw a card/search top X for a specific card type like Militia Bugler

Militia Bugler seems good, Vengeful Rebel is good removal especially off of a flicker, Eldrazi Displacer is great value

@king-saproling: Well, I suppose that's how everyone feels about this.

Anyways, Approval, or Rejection?

Cut 1: Militia Bugler or Icon of Ancestry : Just adding Heirloom Blade is quite a thumbs up to me. Bugler has higher range of what one can get, but that Stained Glass Window buffs & does a similar effect.

Cut 2: Urza's Incubator : Uh, Jodah, Archmage Eternal for Morophon, the Boundless ? Those two together practically retcon even paying less for a Human.

This is literally my choices for what to cut. That said, I already would know what, between these would be cut. I just need one more opinion from you about them. I'll check out your decks soon enough. :)

RobBot on 'Jani and the Soul Sisters

Nice to see someone else starting their modern life with Soul Sisters, in fact it's still my main deck and even now i'm still tweaking it to make it better. What you need to know about modern is that it's blazing fast. You need to get going as fast as possible. There are a couple of cards here that are very...meh. While Ajani's Pridemate becomes the biggest card in the deck, Serra Ascendant is how you're going to win most games. Because of that, its just about required to run 4 Serra Ascendant in this deck, as well as 4 Martyr of Sands . The reasoning behind that is the turn 2 combo in which turn 1 you play Serra Ascendant then turn two play Martyr of Sands , immediately crack it for 9-12 life, get to 30+ life turn 2 and get the +5/+5 on Serra Ascendant then attack for 6 lifelink damage. You also need to get a set of Path to Exile because it is the strongest 1 mana removal in white. Having that will but you in a huge advantage. Trust me when i say this, DO NOT RUN Kabira Crossroads !!!! THE 2 LIFE IN EXCHANGE FOR A TAPPED LAND IS NOT WORTH IT!! I use to have it in mine and wow, was it mega mega slow to get going with something like that. Militia Bugler is extremely slow and restrictive, you need to go for Ranger of Eos because it can let you bring out stuff like 2 soul sisters, 1 Serra Ascendant and 1 Martyr of Sands , all your bread and butter. I would personally recommend Ranger-Captain of Eos becuase its 3 mana instead of 4, while it only gets 1 creature instead of two, it only costs 3 mana and has the added ability of being able to be sacrificed to stop any sort of kill spells / control spells for the rest of that turn so you can end the game without having a fat Cryptic Command come out to tap all our creatures. I would maybe also say to check out my decklist for soul sisters, even though its 2-4 times more expensive, see if you get any ideas from it, If you wanna talk mono white lifegain cards let me know because I can go on about them all day :)

hullos thanks :) I think I will swap out Doomed Dissenter for Tithe Taker . I should definitely add Judith, the Scourge Diva . I like Plaguecrafter and Midnight Reaper , but Militia Bugler doesn't grab them. I really want a Desecrated Tomb too.
