Hi everyone, ive always wanted to build the Humans deck but, as you know, its very expensive so i came out with differents variations of this deck but they never convinced me. Finally i came out with this variation that is, i think better tha the others, or at least more interesting. This is part of it:
The thing is that i dont know if its good enough to start. Im still searching for a substitude for Phantasmal Image , cuz here were i live its at least 15 euros each one. I dont know if i should go with only two or three Aether Vial , cuz its expensive too. Lands are another problem, Cavern of souls its really really expensive so i need a substitude. i guess ill go with Ancient Ziggurat and Unclaimed Territory but i dont know which other lands should i take.

I only recently took out Shapeshifter, it was too cute. The best it does is copy Battlesinger anything else could just be another Oran-Rief Survivalist-clone anyway. To keep it more consistent I'm actually trying to do Collected Company now so no Shapeshifter for now. I'd MUCH prefer to try Phantasmal Image over it giving weird play against things like Reality Smasher.
Mimic is good in a deck with ONLY the one type or as a combo piece at least. Mimic entering as an Ally missing triggers on Champion and Lt. or putting it as a Human makes the allies not trigger, at least right now the only thing that "whiffs" triggers is Champion of the Parish coming in after an ally, and that feels bad enough.
These are all ideas for potential different decks and build and aren't bad cards, but maximizing t3 kills is my goal with this for now.
The only long-term change that would be nice to make is to get 3 more Horizon Canopy in this build.

I really wish the time had been taken to build this list, so that I didn't need to spend so much time on it.
A lot of the cards weren't even spelt correctly.

ah very nice, i can get down with a good shuffle! your general being an elf helps a lot as well and you are running a little ally synergy, i personally would push elv's farther to be able to abuse your general as much as possible it would open you up to Elvish Vanguard and Presence of Gond which with your general could be a power house on its own, maybe even Priest of Titania in place of cards likeOran-Rief Survivalist,Graypelt Hunter and Jungle Delver those i think might not get you as much value or at the very least be slower to build
Imperious Perfect Pauper EDH this is an elf deck i have maybe not fully up to date but if your interested in pushing elv's it could offer some inspiration!

For me the tribe that comes to mind is Allies.
There's a Hardened Scales idea brewing for Naya in my head.
Synergizes well with sideboard cards like Scavenging Ooze

I think the deck tries to do too many things: big creatures, milling, and control. If you prefer to focus more on control and milling, I'd remove either Graypelt Hunter or Oran-Rief Survivalist since they do the same. I'd also remove Diminish since you have fogs and many boomerang efects.
However I think milling only with the excavator (+ copies) and a few spells is not very reliable, so another option is just removing milling from the equation. Halimar Excavator + Traumatize + Jace's Erasure is already 8 cards, so just one more and you'll have 60.
Of course, last option I see is removing all the blue control, and focus on having a more aggressive build with lots of allies, along with some blue milling spells: winning via creature damage would be the main goal, and milling an alternative in case the game stalls. Adding white as a third color would help a lot here, since it gives you access to some good aggresive allies like Talus Paladin, Hada Freeblade, Kazandu Blademaster, Lantern Scout and Veteran Warleader, and also to some very good removal.
In any case, if you want to keep the deck as similar as possible to what you have now, first things I would get rid of are 2x Diminish, 2x Unsummon since they are a bit weak. And if you find some more dual lands, I think you can stick to 20 since your curve is not high.

Hi, I love your allies!
I am also interested how does Jwari Shapeshifter works for you? Is not it too risky to play her? If your opponent bolt / path / destroy etc. creature targeted with her you loose her too.

@Salad_Thunder - I've been considering and testing Thalia's Lieutenant over Oran-Rief Survivalist. My build is all humans except 3 Goblin Bushwhacker which is just usually used as a final push of damage anyways. I don't run Metallic Mimic or Ondu Cleric mainboard so it is probably not the best idea for your deck but what are your ideas of Lieutenant in general. It can have immediate impact on the board unlike survivalist and it grows like survivalist (albeit 1 counter slower).
