I recently started playing modern. I started with black white tokens. 4 Caves of Koilos4 Isolated Chapel4 Godless Shrine11 Plains4 Intangible Virtue3 Honor of the Pure4 Raise the Alarm4 Gather the Townsfolk4 Lingering Souls4 Spectral Procession2 Sram's Expertise4 Path to Exile3 Zealous Persecution2 Brave the Elements3 Smuggler's CopterSb to taste. i bought gr tron and jund after but i did well for months with the deck. Best was 5-0 worst was 2-3. Any questions just ask. Sorry for crappy formatting, haven't been on here in forever.

Secure the Wastes and Raise the Alarm are great White token generators.

Which deck do you want to build: Humans or tokens? Both are ok deck concepts, but your cards are (I'm sorry to say this, 'cause it sounds so rude) really underpowered.

Start with 4 Intangible Virtue, 4 Gather the Townsfolk, 4 Lingering Souls (and splash a bit of black for the flashback), 4 Raise the Alarm, and 4 Spectral Procession. I don't think I've ever seen a token deck with those - it's where all the tokens come from.

After that, find some utility cards. Path to Exile is nice. Hero of Bladehold works very well with tokens. and so on.

So, tokens, is it?

Then get rid of Ghostly Prison, Regal Caracal, all 5 artifacts, and Wall of Omens. miracleHat suggested a couple of good cards for this strategy - Raise the Alarm and Gather the Townsfolk. If you have Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize, they work really well.

At 4 mana, Anointed Procession is probably not a 4of in a 20 land deck (but I really don't know). You could consider Hidden Stockpile, also not a 4of.

Its looking better already though!

Gisela, the Broken BladeBruna, the Fading Light

Archangel of Tithes isnt as good as the card Ghostly Prison.

Raise the Alarm would be a huge help and might actually make this viable.

Entreat the Angels could be considered. Nice thought on Terminus, I would main board it though.

I know that this might burst your bubble, but emeria is really bad for this deck. Tapped lands are a big no-no for aggro decks and if you are at the stage of the game where the land is proccing then you have already lost. Basic plains are better. Ajani, Caller of the Pride's and Gideon, Champion of Justice's abilities are weak in this setup. Lastly, martyr of sands is questionable in this list, as it does nothing to support your tokens and it is not what you want draw at any point in the game.

Consider Raise the Alarm or Gather the Townsfolk, they are both good for tokens. Hero of Bladehold is another possibility to consider.

Irianne youre not gonna want to ramp into a 15 mana costed creature. Who does that and lives to tell the tale? What youre gonna wanna do is cheat it out. Theres a few ideas you can run with, Polymorph tokens is one to do it. Proteus Staff is another way, or you can combine them both into a small soldiers tokens deck with cards like Raise the Alarm or Gather the Townsfolk Timely Reinforcements would help as well. Or you can build the jeskai control deck that had some success a few years ago and see how you like that, get a bunch of Wall of Omens and other defenders and chump blockers until you can max out your Nahiri, the Harbinger. Keep me posted im interested in reading about which way you go!

Hey, so I thought a little about the deck. Instead of efficient combos let's stick to the sillier ones, focusing on intruder alarm.

You are in very bad colors for tapping dorks, and the stonybrook/drowner combo is only tutorable by black. I'd suggest more artifact and instant focused combos that still require several pieces to set up, and are pretty cheesy.

So one would be Isochron Scepter + Ensoul Artifact + Some creatures which tap for mana + some pretty spicy spells such as:

To Arms! to draw your deck

Intruder Alarm with token generation, such as

Warping Wail for infinite scions/mana (and some other useful modes)

Raise the Alarm, Reality Shift to deck opponents, Pongify/Rapid Hybridization to replace fatties with 3/3s, etc.

This is all pretty janky, so a cheesy but more efficient method would be some of the above, but with Paradox Engine and artifact mana in place of Ensoul Artifact and tapping dorks.

A very fun combo sometimes used in Cedh is to have an Isochron Scepter imprinted with Dramatic Reversal, then playing a Copy Artifact imprinting a Swan Song, then playing some spell and infinitely countering it with swan song while it's on the stack to generate infinite 2/2 birds. Phyrexian Metamorph is a backup copier.

It looks like you are intentionally avoiding them, but I'd still look into the cheaper artifact and spell tutors to help assemble your combos easier. You are playing a tutor in the command zone, after all.

Regardless of the combos you choose to use, I'd include some cheap interaction and card advantage like the above comment suggests. The land count is also very high, I would cut down to 33 max. You can use some cheaper artifacts. Without mentioning the broken ones, you could stand to add Talisman of Progress, Talisman of Dominance, and Fellwar Stone. The 3cmc ones are typically pretty bad, but you could add Coalition Relic.

Hope that helps, good luck!
