Mirror Entity Discussion

Thanks for the comment! These are great suggestions.
Ballyrush Banneret and Preeminent Captain are great additions for a soldier deck, but I do not have enough soldier creatures to make them viable. I built this deck more around the token aspect. Still great cards, but I cannot find a card to get rid of for them. Mentor of the Meek was on my mind when I first constructed the deck, but I was worried it will not get it's full use due to all the anthem affects.
Gerrard Capashen is new to me. This is a cool card and I will try to integrate it in right away. Precinct Captain is great for soldier tokens, I'll look into it as well. Goldnight Commander is a fun card as well, I will look to integrate that one in as well.
Settle the Wreckage is a interesting way to get lands. Never thought about using my own creatures as fodder for lands.
Thank you again for the time! I will look at your Darien deck as well.

ISBPathfinder made an extensive comment about Mirror Entity recently and after reading it I decided not to run it.
Its a heavy telegraph for the next turn that demands spot removal or sweepers so it never works. Also, even if you expect it to stick, doing nothing the turn it comes out can be a big deal if the board state demands immediate action. Plus, even if you get a swing or two with him, you’ve spent a turn or two not casting cards, which can end up putting you well behind the players you weren’t attacking. Drana, Liberator of Malakir is similar to mirror entity in that she doesn’t do anything the turn she comes in. However she doesn’t share the drawback of preventing you from playing cards and thus won’t put you behind if she’s removed. She also does not demand removal and so on average she generates much more value than mirror entity.
Finally, I am still torn on modern horizon’s sunbaked canopy and silent clearing. They are comparable to the painland cycle. The cons of that cycle are: relevant lifeloss, nonbasic, would lower my basic count to the danger zone. This outweighs the pro of fixing since our manabase is pretty consistent as is. These two new lands have the same issues and are even more painful. I am doubtful that the cantrip ability justifies all that. I have never played with horizon canopy though so I cannot be sure.

Well since you are going for full blown tribal add cards like
Shared Animosity To make your creatures all hit harder when they swing together.
Coat of Arms Play this only when you have a big board already built up. It will pretty much be a game ender.
Mirror Entity This can make all your wizards into large beat sticks to try and swing in for game.
Adeliz, the Cinder Wind If you make your deck a little more spell slinger based then she will make your army of wizards massive.
Tone down on a few of the creatures 37 can be a bit high especially when you’ll need to have answers available in the event things go south.
Maybe run some more tutors and draw spells to help you get into your good stuff more.
Eladamri's Call will let you tutor for any creature so you get your pick of some wizards.

Lets start with your CMC. In order for an aggro deck to be fast, the mana curve for the deck needs to be incredibly low to the ground. With that in mind here are some creatures that are all sub-three CMC:
- Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit
- Boros Reckoner
- Thalia, Heretic Cathar
- Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
- Tithe Taker
- Mentor of the Meek
- Ballyrush Banneret
- Haazda Marshal
- Aerial Responder
- Frontline Medic
- Consul's Lieutenant
- Bounty Agent
- Mirror Entity
- Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip
- Thalia's Lieutenant
- Akroan Hoplite
- Champion of the Parish
- Legion Loyalist
- Metallic Mimic
- Recruiter of the Guard
- Swiftblade Vindicator
- Legion Warboss
You are also gonna need to give your creatures haste, and one of my favorite cards does just that for next to nothing; Mass Hysteria .
Here are a few cards I also think would be really good support, or are staples in this archetype:
- Unbreakable Formation
- Brave the Elements
- Teferi's Protection
- Collective Effort
- Citywide Bust
- Militia's Pride
- Brave the Sands
- Glorious Anthem
- Chance for Glory
- Spear of Heliod
Lastly... I know you said you avoided it intentionally but... I think it was a mistake... You need more ramp. The more ramp you have the faster you can play dudes the faster you can kill someone. So Mana Crypt , Sol Ring , Boros Signet , Chrome Mox , etc. I think you should play at least 5 ramp artifacts to really help you get that overwhelming force, because on T4 you now have to live in fear of WoGs
Ok that's all... he said after posting a page long comment... Sorry. <3 If you need help with cuts anything above 4 cmc should be the first things to go with the exception of Cathar's. get your CMC as close to 2 as you can.

Great budget list! May I suggest Mirror Entity for massive token pump and fitting the soldier mold since it is a shapeshifter.
It’s a little more expensive but Settle the Wreckage is a more affordable ramp card for mono-white tokens (if you cant get Land Tax or Smothering Tithe) or if you’re in a jam it is also great removal.
Mine isn’t really a budget version, but I’d say it’s like a 70% power level.
Hope some of those help!

Decided to throw in Selfless Spirit . I do not like cards that are obvious targets for removal and don’t accomplish anything if they get removed, particularly in this deck which runs so few other targets to bait the removal on. However I don’t mind running these types of cards if they do something our deck needs (see Dark Confidant ). In this case selfless spirit is one of very few mana-efficient answers to boardwipes. If I can run Thoughtseize mostly for boardwipes I should run this too.
Considering Mirror Entity more and more. Maybe I am talking myself out of a good card but:
A. he will almost always get removed
B. Not excited about my opponent losing a removal spell that probably wouldn’t affect us anyway.
C. Feels bad to pay 3, do nothing, lose tempo, and go down a card.
C. Winning faster is always nice but winning fast is not something our deck struggles with so is he really worth the downside?
