Precinct Captain Discussion

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.

Precinct Captain and Raise the Alarm are excellent cost-efficient ways to generate tokens to trigger odric, instant speed tokens is also strong as blockers or end of opponent casts so they can swing right away

Champion of the Parish gets really big, really fast here and is played on turn 1

Mentor of the Meek is excellent card draw as well Timely Reinforcements is an excellent sideboard card. Speaking of sideboard, you're going to need one to deal with modern meta decks.

Id recommend 2 or 3 Timely Reinforcements, 2 Stony Silence, 2 Rest in Peace, 2 Kor Firewalker, 2 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben 3-4 Leyline of Sanctity and 2-4 Path to Exile

You could consider human-based aggro with Precinct Captain, Thalia's Lieutenant, and Champion of the Parish. Maybe use Silence on your opponent's turn to secure the win.

Got to agree with the above. Vault of the Archangels is a 1x or 2x max. Windbrisk Heights and Spectral Procession are both very solid. Honor the Pure and Intangible Virtue would be better at 2x each, 8x risks flooding your hand with useless cards when you have no creatures out, maybe a 1x/2x Coat of Arms as it ends up being more efficient. Day of Judgment is going to be a dead draw for you most games, slap it in the sideboard or take 1x. Captain's Call or Pulse of the Fields are also decent considerations.

With your only black card and interaction being Tragic Slip, taking some more hand control and removal is definitely a good idea. Duress, Blackmail, Cry of Contrition, Go for the Throat and Inquisition of Kozilek are all budget options

Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Elspeth, Sun's Champion are both super nice and Precinct Captain and Preeminent Captain are also cards ive used in soldier token decks.

Ultimately though, it really seems like you'd be better off building Mono white devotion around shrine to nyx and Secure the Wastes or going for B/U tokens for dick kickers like Geist of Saint Traft.

Im not a fan of the mana-curve in this one. Got a lot of high CMC cards that may make it hard to work. I'd try some creatures like, Champion of the Parish which grows when you add human creatures. Kor Skyfisher and Jtun Grunt make some decent low cost creatures. I'd find room for Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip to try and transform him. You can get some ramp love from Thalia, Heretic Cathar and Thalia's Lieutenant. Precinct Captain is a good low cost card that starts generating tokens quick. Token generation can make for good synergy with Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip once you transform it.

It looks like you've got Devouring Light as a removal. Might I suggest Path to Exile instead? Its a 1 CMC rather than a 3 and doesn't care if the target is blocking or attacking.

I feel Darien, King of Kjeldor has a bit too high of a cost for this deck. I also tend to advise against one of most creatures. Odds of pulling him are very low. I would also bump your land up to 24 with some non-basic lands.

Look up the Rule of Nine. Helped me a lot when I started building. I went from picking random cards and tossing them into a deck to learning how to work with synergy and combos. Good luck and keep brewing!

Gisela is a fun card. She rocks in Commander. She is just to slow for Modern in my opinion without some way to cheat her in. Speaking of cheating you might want some recursion. Return to the Ranks would be a good 1 of for mainboard or side in against removal heavy decks. You need more tokens to make front line medic work well. Spectral Procession perhaps or something like Precinct Captain, or Dragon Fodder. Soulfire Grand Master is a sweeeet combat trick with Blasphemous Act. Just laugh at your opponent as you gain an insane amount of life. So add one when you can afford it. Latter upgrades. Chandra, Torch of Defiance & Nahiri, the Harbinger are both direct upgrades to Monastery Siege I would add one of each for utility & flavor. Tajic, Blade of the Legion survives your Blasphemous Act he might he a fun 1 of. That's my 2 cents worth. Cool looking deck. Best of luck.

I would replace the paladin with Precinct Captain(soldier creature type and token generator). Maybe sideboard Archetype of Courage in case you run into another soldier deck. Frontline Medic (indestructible swarm) and Benalish Commander (token generator) wouldn't be bad adds either. Chariot of Victory seems a little redundant if you're running Field Marshal. I'm not an expert when it comes to equipment, but I'd say you want your equipment to focus mainly on p/t buffs and combat abilities. Neko-Te, Fireshrieker, and Kusari-Gama are some of my personal favorites. Cranial Plating and Leonin Bola could be nice as well. Spear of Heliod is some nice handy removal.

Hope this helps!

Don't know if you noticed already, but Precinct Captain's tokens are not human, so they don't trigger human-related abilities like those of Champion of the Parish or Thalia's Lieutenant.
