Siege Rhino Discussion

Odd ass this may sound, you might have too many creatures and the creatures you have may also need minor adjustment. Renegade Rallier , Wall of Omens , Strangleroot Geist or Selfless Spirit seem like they would be ideal as does Eldritch Evolution in a sacrifice deck. I wouldn't play a graveyard strategy here, one, decks are running graveyard hate in the main-board and two, you won't do it as well as a deck dedicated to it.
Siege Rhino and Restoration Angel would be viable with Eldritch, Qasali Ambusher would already be good in your deck, but it's even better if you can cast it for free then flip it over to a Thragtusk or Sigarda, Host of Herons . You also want a basic Plains in your deck, heck you might want to go to 20 land.
I guess what I'd do as a starter is:
-2 Birds of Paradise -2 Blood Artist -1 Collected Company -1 Rally the Ancestors -2 Cartel Aristocrat
+2 Land (1 a Plains) +1 Siege Rhino +1 Renegade Rallier +1 Restoration Angel +3 Eldritch Evolution
As an aside, the single best card to use with Varolz, the Scar-Striped is Death's Shadow ... I hope this is of some help, good luck with your brew.

I was using my phone last time, on a computer now, so:
I deliberately choose Converted Mana Cost (CMC) 3 for a reason. Modern being the format it is, this cost can sometimes be the most expensive cards in the deck. At this cost the card needs to have an impact on the board state.
Vampire Nighthawk, your more or less on the ball, it's a very good creature. The really good thing about it is it can stall the board state. Your opponent won't attack with their strongest creature if it can be blocked and killed by Nighthawk, so it can potentially buy you a turn, maybe you will even draw removal like Dismember.
Dissipate, is the answer you want to a card like Adorned Pouncer, it stops the cat entering the battlefield and it exiles it, so you can't eternalize it. at CMC 2, Dissipate would need a restriction or downside. At CMC 3, it might see some play, but most of the time Stubborn Denial, Spell Pierce or Mana Leak are good enough.
Bow of Nylea, does a lot of things, but none of them are that relevant. It's a card which is more interesting than it is good, but you could build a deck around it.
Guttersnipe, I included this as a trap. New player often evaluate the goblin as an extra 2 damage when they cast every Lightning Bolt, well that sounds good! It isn't, in a burn deck Guttersnipe does nothing the turn it comes into play, it is an awful top deck and probably the card I tell people to cut from their decks the most. If I want something at CMC 3 in burn (which I probably don't) I'd play Hell's Thunder or Ball Lightning.
Ghostway, I actually gave you a clue "re-trigger enters the battlefield", in context of your deck Regal Caracal would be bounced, then return to play creating 2 new cat tokens. Unfortunately it would also wipe out all of your existing tokens. "A token that has left play can’t come back into play. If such a token would return to play, it remains in its current zone instead. It ceases to exist the next time state-based effects are checked." A more relevant scenario for the card would be if your opponent is on 11 life and you have Siege Rhino, Geralf's Messenger and Gray Merchant of Asphodel in play. The combined power of those creatures is 9, so you can't kill your opponent this turn, until you draw Ghostway. The Rhino drains 3, Messenger 2 and Merchant 6, Ghostway wins you the game that turn, without you even needing to attack. A lot of creature have an "enters the battlefield" effect, Ghostway lets you abuse that.
Enlightened Tutor isn't modern legal as it has never been printed in a modern legal set. Idyllic Tutor, it is CMC 3, it doesn't effect the board state, finds Anointed Procession (which when you cast it next turn, also doesn't effect the board state), don't add Idyllic Tutor. Commune with the Gods digs 5 cards deep into your library and lets you choose a creature or enchantment, roughly speaking 60% of the time this will find Anointed Procession, but it also lets you find a creature, it gives you options depending on your board state at the time.

Throne of the God-Pharaoh, could work here given the volume of creatures your running. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben would be a good control option and Mikaeus, the Lunarch might let you grow your creatures, similar to Steel Overseer for artifact decks. You could also consider a black splash for Siege Rhino and Anafenza, the Foremost or get protection and lifegain from Auriok Champion.
Unfortunately, you are missing the consistency and advantage of going for the tribal option, since you can't leverage Unclaimed Territory or Cavern of Souls and don't have a low cost creature which grows itself like Champion of the Parish (Humans) or Hada Freeblade (Allies). Outside of that, your deck doesn't actually avoid, what I think is, the biggest weakness for Humans, that being cards like Torpor Orb or Tocatli Honor Guard which suppress ETB effects, though these are by no means that common.
I hope this is of some help, good luck with your brew.

I am completely new to Modern, actually am just browsing ideas and trying to come up with a viable strategy. I do like Archangel of Thune and will definitely be picking it up for Commander for sure, although my budget won't allow for 4 copies of that thing right away. Budget and also the fact that I have 4 Crested Sunmare is the big reason why I'm choosing that and Siege Rhino for my focus of the deck. I would be interested to find more life gain combos, however i just wanted that as a back up, surprise win condition.

Hi, wenn Du schon Viscera Seer und Carrion Feeder spielst, würde ich definitiv auch noch Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit sowie eventuell Melira, Sylvok Outcast mitnehmen. Das ganze wurde auch so in Melira-Company in Modern gespielt. Ich hab dazu mal früher einen Primer geschrieben. In den Primer sind auch noch einige weitere Karten die ich Dir ans Herz legen könnte, einige davon ergeben aber nur im Modern-Kontext Sinn. Karten die meiner Meinung nach, auf jeden Fall ins Deck sollten: Collected Company, Abrupt Decay, Ravenous Chupacabra, Survival of the Fittest, Green Sun's Zenith und Orzhov Pontiff
Außerdem könnte man versuchen Tainted Pact in das Deck zu bauen, da bin ich mir abe rnicht so ganz sicher drüber. Dafür müsste aber noch einig was in der Manabase passieren.
Da du ein Kreaturendeck bist, würde ich auf Languish und Toxic Deluge verzichten. Auch würde ich auf Auriok Champion verzichten, da das Deck eigentlich keine Probleme gegen mono Rot haben sollte. Ebenso überzeugt mich nicht Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, wenn dann könnte ich mir den als Commander zusammen mit Tymna the Weaver vorstellen. Sakura-Tribe Elder passt auch nicht so ganz ins Deckkonzept. Genauso wie Siege Rhino und Sun Titan. Beide Karten unterstützen nicht wirklich den Gameplan. Stoneforge Mystic ergibt momentan auch nicht so viel sinn, da Du nur Umezawa's Jitte finden kannst.
Das waren vorerst meine Gedanken zu dem Deck, eventuell fällt mir aber noch mehr ein :D

Eledain I think you should run more basics so that Field of Ruins don't end up being worse strip mines. I also think some focus on entering the battlefield stuff could give the deck some spice as you have a Tidehollow Sculler, Siege Rhino and Knight of Autumn. maybe something similar to Eldrazi and taxes to take advantage of Tidehollow Sculler exiling it. also, where are the Ghost Quarters? this deck definitely needs it. another thing that could be cool is Cat Jesus aka Leonin Arbiter to stop fetches and them searching for basics. something to watch out for if you do put it in is it is symmetrical so your Field of Ruin will cost 4. a version of Leonin Arbiter that isn't symmetrical is Aven Mindcensor
my deck is evil. feedback to make even more so is appreciated.
