Raise the Alarm Discussion
7 hours ago
Hi! Here's my two cents:
You have 61 cards in here; I don't know if that's intentional, but you should probably take a card out
20 lands seems a little too few, maybe go up to 22 or 23
As I mentioned on BAND, Scion of Vitu-Ghazi is a good card
Mentor of the Meek is great; I strongly recommend getting another 3 copies
I know it would mean adding another color, but Lingering Souls is absolutely amazing; it even sees high-level competitive play in Modern
Raise the Alarm is also great, I'd go up to the full 4 of them, too
Honor of the Pure is another good anthem effect
Hope this helps! My first deck was a GW tokens deck pretty similar to this, and I loved playing it.

I found some cool things when trying to find human solders. Brave the Elements could save your creatures from some hate, or a free blocking turn. you could also use Cloudshift to flicker Captain of the Watch or Ranger of Eos for extra triggers.

This is incorrect, it depends how you stack the triggers. If a Wrath of God style effect destroys all creatures at once, the ability will trigger for each creature, as they see eachother as they die. Because of the Intervening If clause the ability would normally fail on resolution, as there would no longer be a creature to satisfy the Intervening If clause. However, if there is a new creature, either due to Nether Traitor returning or an instant like Raise the Alarm the clause would be satisfied and the creature would be returned at end of turn. The way you want to stack the triggers is your creatures triggering Lifeline, Nether Traitor triggering, your opponents' creatures triggering Lifeline. The result will be the Intervening If failing so your opponent's creatures don't return, then Nether Traitor returning, then your creatures passing the check for Lifeline creating the delayed triggered ability to return them at the start of the end step.

For a supposed tokens deck, you aren't running many of the good ones?
Soul Warden is just some eh life gain. Not that amazing. Drop it.
Mentor is too slow to be decent in this sort of shell without free spells. Young Pyromancer isn't much better because you want to be casting him turn 2, but on turn 2 you ideally want to be slamming tokens already.
Hero of Bladehold is too slow for the current meta IMO. Not disruptive enough.
Bitterblossom is a big part of giving the deck resilience and grindiness, which helps a lot.
Tidehollow Sculler add to the disruption too.
Now, justify every card in your sideboard, what decks do they hit?

You've got 2 Sunspear Shikari listed here.
One of my personal favorite, but under valued cards, is Dragon Throne of Tarkir. It can work well with voltron-y token decks like this.
Aside from all that, IMO, you've got a lot of land for a pretty low curve. On the otherhand, you don't have much in the way of mana rocks so 41 lands may be a good idea. :P
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx likes mono colored decks with lots of devotion.
I am kinda iffy about Sigil of the Empty Throne in this. If you can get out, you've only got 8 other cards that could trigger it and it doesn't make cats.
To bad Knight of the White Orchid isn't a 'cat.' :/

The biggest issues I see is you only have Souls for Indomitable Creativity, and what do you do if you have or draw Emrakul in your hand?
This is a version I was tinkering with a few months ago: Mardu Creativity
Bitterblossom and Raise the Alarm helped with more tokens, plus if you have an Emperion out you just get 1/1 flyers for free. Second, Faithless Looting helps find the pieces you need AND puts Emrakul back in your library. It was a fun deck to proxy but it's super expensive and even with Faithless Looting it was hard to find consistency.
