Where are the soul sisters? How about Thalia's Lieutenant or Champion of the Parish. Precinct Captain likes to go wide, as does Hanweir Militia Captain.

Hey if you don't mind I have some questions and suggestions for you. I love soldiers and have a deck of them as well! So I think this deck would see a lot of help from both Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Elspeth, Sun's Champion. Gideon can ult immediately and Elspeth makes a bunch of tokens. Other cards that would work here are spot removal cards like Journey to Nowhere and Disenchant, Path to Exile,Oblivion Ring, Unified Strike I think they do more than Argentum Armor because it takes so long to get use out of it. And maybe a Wrath of God or the like as well. Some other creatures that would work well if interested are Elite Vanguard, Preeminent Captain, Precinct Captain, Mentor of the Meek, Veteran Swordsmith, and Veteran Armorsmith I do think that since you only have five equipments as well that Auriok Steelshaper seems underwhelming here. Anointed Procession and Mobilization are also great here as well. The main questions I have are, is budget an issue at all and what is your meta like and also how is the deck performing? Because knowing that could change the above quite drastically. What do you think?

Hi, ShaharRyu. My idea behind removing Ballyrush Banneret is that you won't get discounts for 1 drops (witch you have 8 of) and Precinct Captains. I've recommended replacing it with more of those un-discountable spells since they are better threats but if you are really keen on sticking with them, it's still a good option. Also you may just tweak the ratio of Fairgrounds Wardens and Stasis Snares as you'd like (eg. 1 Fairgrounds Warden 2 Stasis Snare) or try a new card from Amonkhet called Cast Out, since it merges flashy responivity of Stasis Snare and removal versitility of Banishing Light for only 1 extra mana. Plus with it's cycling you can try and draw into more usefull card at a time. Well, Cloudshift. It's ok, I just prefer to have more removal or creatures then a protection/value spell, especially if you have Brave the Elements for the protection, and only 5 creatures for the value.

Hey PlaneswalkerCasper. Thanks for your feedback on my deck. Regarding to your tips: Exchanging Doomed Traveler for Icatian Javelineers and Thraben Inspector is a very good idea. I was thinking about just 4 javelinerrs but 2 and 2 sounds just perfect. Ideally, Ballyrush Banneret should be in my opening hand. Turn 2 drop and if am lucky turn 3 as well, makes all of my 3 drops a 1 drop, besides the fact they are magnets to removal which could potentially get something more important from the board. I count them each as 1/2 a land so that am running as many creatures as possible and I could consider removing 1 for a Precinct Captain but more would affect my mana balance since Preeminent Captain can't cheat until turn 4. Fairgrounds Warden is very likely to receive removal and Stasis Snare might be a better option, although lower mana cost from the banneret or the ability to change targets by casting Cloudshift is very nice. Sunlance is a wonderful suggestion which I will happily include in the deck and although Honor of the Pure is amazing, right now am low on budget and a set is very expisve for me (yes, $8 is a pain when your local currency is 3 times less), but I consider running 1 Spear of Heliod as an alternative which also grants removal. Upping on Tormod's Crypt sounds nice and Hour of Reckoning sounds a lot of fun to play.

Once again thanks for your suggestions and I will keep this low-budget version updating for a while. Any more ideas or explanations as to why you would strongly reccomend your suggestions are welcomed. And just for the record, Cloudshift is much better than people consider. Give it a try for protection of removal, recasting Captain of the Watch or changing Fairgrounds Warden target.

HiShaharRyu, your deck seem quite good for a budget build, although some things can be improved. Doomed Traveler is good if you have a removal-heavy meta at your LGS, but if not, I recommend swapping them for 2 Thraben Inspector and 2 Icatian Javelineers. Ballyrush Banneret is a great card, I can certainly see a couple of reasons to run it, but I think it might be better to swap them for 2 additional Precinct Captains and 2 Honor of the Pure since you're cheating creatures into play with Preeminent Captain. Your romoval package is also vulnerable to opposing removal since Fairgrounds Warden is a creature. Personally, if you don't want to buy the expensive 4 Path to Exile, try with a combination of Stasis Snare, Oblivion Ring (I know that it's in the sideboard) and Banishing Light. You might also try Sunlance as a sideboard removal instead of Oblivion Ring (if you move it to main). Brave the Elements is ok, Cloudshift not so much. I would replace all Cloudshifts and 2 Brave the Elements by following: 1 Raise the Alarm 1 Honor of the Pure and 2 Aerial Responders, witch go nicely with your Odric, Master Tactician. For sideboard, it's a well built budget version of a full blown modern hateboard. I could see the replacement of Tormod's Crypt for Relic of Progenitus. In fact, you're kind of light on greveyard hate, so I recommend running more of it (for eg. 3-4 Relic of Progenitus, cut what you think is right, although Condemn is the weakest card of them all). Plus, a 1 mass removal card such as Hour of Reckoning, witch is a great budget option.

ShaharRyu on Odric's Plans

Thought about Odric, Lunarch Marshal and Angelic Overseer Combo? Since you are running angels that is a nasty and powerful combo if you pull it out.

Gather the Townsfolk wont receive any benefits from Field Marshal so maybe Raise the Alarm or other Soldier token spell would be better. On that note, Fairgrounds Warden also benefit from such bonus unlike Fiend Hunter.

Since you are running so many humans Champion of the Parish is an excellent option. Otherwise you should consider running some Kithkin spells like Ballyrush Banneret which offers a lower mana cost for most of your creatures and Preeminent Captain that simply spawns a Precinct Captain or Boros Elite out of nowhere.
