Militia Bugler

Creature — Human Soldier

Vigilance (Attacking doesn't cause this creature to tap.)

When Militia Bugler enters the battlefield, look at the top four cards of your library. You may reveal a creature card with power 2 or less from among them and put it into your hand. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.

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.

I like the core of your deck, but when I tested it, it fet like you were flooding often. I think some creatures that cantrip or find other creatures (e.g. Militia Bugler ) could really help alot!

Mox Amber actually didn't help at all, either the creature died, I had multiple in hand, or I didn't need the extra mana. I defenatly would consider replacing those.

Another card that could help would be Growth-Chamber Guardian , because it can find more copys if you have to many lands. It it worth it to find some Militia Bugler s though, and maybe even playsets of both? They would help if you didn't draw enough creatures for your combo kill :)

Hope this helps!

Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves and Trostani Discordant seem like good one ofs for Bantifar, though I know the 5 drop slot is pretty tricky. They're great against aggro strategies.

Not sure entirely how this can work, but Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner can untap Vannifar for a double pod. I don't know how necessary that is with Neoform also in the deck. Samut, Tyrant Smasher seems really good for giving your creatures haste, and probably strictly better than Rhythm of the Wild since you wont have to tech a fourth color. having a Vannifar out with Haste seems really, really good.

Bant also has other great finisher options like Lyra Dawnbringer and Carnage Tyrant . I'm also a big fan of Mirror Image , Militia Bugler (which can search out Vannifar), Conclave Cavalier , Pelt Collector , and Deputy of Detention . I think you can definitely have more 1 or 2 ofs in a deck with Vannifar and Neoform as the main focus, because you're basically making a toolbox deck!
