Serra Disciple Discussion

Does Judge's Familiar fit in budget?
Have you considered a Glint Hawk / Artificer's Assistant / Neurok Familiar / Sky Theater Strix / Serra Disciple as a Bone Saw / Springleaf Drum / Cathar's Shield / Herbal Poultice beatdown/value engine?
Thrummingbird offers a +1+1 counters theme, but I don't feel like there is enough in the low-to the ground slots to make it work.

5c0r910n Ahh ok, I forgot about Serra Disciple . Chromatic Lantern was only in there to reach 5 colors for Chamber Sentry , but now that it's 4 colors I can probably add a Mox Amber or two or three and use the Treasure tokens to get there, considering I have a decent amount of Legendaries. Mox would also be another good 0CMC Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle trigger.

i think Chromatic Lantern is kinda wack in this deck, most of your cards a pretty cheap, so i feel like you can find better ramp.
Also some Dive Down in your sideboard for matchups against removal would be pretty good

Legendary_penguin_of_death: I only had time to play one game, but the deck actually held its own. I went against a Selesnya deck, and they played Carnage Tyrant, Mentor of the Meek, Siegehorn Ceratops, Nullhide Ferox, Shalai, Voice of Plenty and Dawn of Hope. I managed to get out a Teshar and two Gleaming Barriers and kept bringing them back from the graveyard to block their Tyrant and ramp with the Treasure. Once they played their Ferox, I Board the Weatherlighted into the second Sentry I needed (accidentally exiled the other one...) and combo'ed off with a Serra Disciple on the field, winning the game.
Those changes made it feel much more consistent, but the deck doesn't feel like it does much until then. I think I'm gonna add more controlling cards like Plaguecrafter (which should be awesome with Teshar) and Settle the Wreckage or Citywide Bust.

This deck is cute, and I'mma let you finish, but there's some issues here I wanna point out to you.
Also, I feel like if you have the budget to put in Resplendent Angel you may as well put the full playset in, because that card is BOINKERS.
Last point, relating back to your curve, is to try to get your 2-mana spells at least slightly higher than your 3-mana spells. I would suggest specifically, to drop 2 copies of Dub (only particular valuable with Kwende, Pride of Femeref interaction as well as a copy of Forebear's Blade (two is good with Danitha Capashen, Paragon, but it's kind of slow to set up imo to be drawing multiples). Serra Disciple is a fine replacement, and should be a 3-of at least, if you're going that route, because you want to reliably draw one early to get the most value of it's ability.
Ok, card suggestion time: 1. Blackblade Reforged!!! Seriously, you run so many legendary creatures here, and this card can quite reliably prove to be of the most porfitable cards in your deck. E.g. Turn 3: Cast Danitha Capashen, Paragon Turn 4: Cast AND equip Blackblade Reforged to Dani, and swing LARGE. What's not to love?
Seal Away. Seal Away may be a bit specific, but it's a cheap way to exile creatures, which is important if you're going to be up against Rekindling Phoenix, a card I absolutely despise, and you should too.
Settle the Wreckage This is more of a sideboard suggestion than anything, although slipping one in the mainboard is not gonna do you too wrong either. It may have a glaring "downside", but wiping their field should often give you the opportunity to win the next turn by swinging out (unless of course they do the same to you).
Alright, that's it for now, thank you for heeding my advice. I urge you check out a similar brew I just worked up I'm really proud of, found here: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/resplendent-vampires/
I will cite that both of our decks have the same "competitive meter", which I firmly disagree on. That's not to say your deck isn't just as competitively viable at a conceptual level, but the effort I spent gathering statistic data, to grant this deck a favorable outcome in the probability that it's going to pop off in one way or another, should be picked up on by the "competitive meter".

Fairmount I love Dispatch! I'm really glad I swooped up a playset when I started building this deck, I'll try tossing them in there. I also like Traxos, Scourge of Kroog and Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage, I'll have to try them when I get with my playgroup next. I can see how Gearsmith Prodigy and more Ornithopters would be more consistent than the two-drops I have, although I am worried about removing those seeing as they are the two things that have historic triggers (especially Serra Disciple). I guess that means it's time to playtest, haha. Thanks :^)

Also the 4 Darksteel Citadel should be easy to fit it, -2 plains -1 island -1 new benalia
The artifact sub theme will help your deck be more aggressive.
Ps- Consider Raff instead of cards like Lavinia and Odric, he’s incredible payoff

The overall base of the deck is solid, however you should be cutting some of the random 1-ofs if you get the chance. Tragic Poet, Serra Disciple and Tiana, Ship's Caretaker aren't really the best cards for the deck. I would reccommend running 4x Dauntless Bodyguard, 3-4x Cartouche of Zeal and potentially making room for 2-3x Sheltering Light so that you can protect against removal when playing your auras.
