Soldier of the Pantheon Discussion
1 week ago
Hey, I think you have a lot of the right pieces and that the list is really well-budgeted! If I may, I'd like to offer you a few suggestions.
Mainboard:I'd add 4 Soldier of the Pantheon (solid 1 drop) and 2-3 of either Consul's Lieutenant or Precinct Captain (both good aggressive first strikers that your opponent will have to deal with quickly). My personal experience with these cards has been excellent. I'd cut 1 Brave the Elements (having 2 in hand feels rather bad), your Elite Vanguard (Soldier of the Pantheon is entirely better), your Mardue Woe-Reaper (although this one might be okay, but would prefer more warriors), and your Imposing Sovereigns (overall feels a bit slow, with redundant effects). Obviously I'd look into Path to Exile over Journey to Nowhere, but if you are running Journey to Nowhere due to budget constraints I entirely understand. I'd also look into adding 2-3 Ghost Quarters to have the ability to mess with your opponent's manabase. Helps a lot against Tron and manlands.
Sideboard:As it stands, you currently have no reason to run Sundering Growth over Disenchant. If you are able to though, I'd shoot for Stony Silence over both of them. As for graveyard hate, I'd recommend Rest in Peace. While it doesn't redraw like Relic, it is a constant effect. The only thing that Grafdigger's Cage does better than it is turn off effects like Collected Company. I'd also go with Ranger of Eos over Make a Stand and 1 other card (maybe one of your many pieces of gravehate?). While make a stand looks pretty good at first, it is very impractical to just hold up 3 mana constantly to protect against board wipes. Using Ranger of Eos to recover from a wipe can be an excellent way to get back into the game.
Hope I could help out a bit! If you ever have any questions or need anything else, let me know. Good luck on your brew!

You should definitely consider Rest in Peace in your sideboard since it hoses a lot of other decks. Instead of 4 Kor Firewalker I would suggest a 2/2 split with Burrenton Forge-Tender, which has more utility for your deck. My personal opinion is that Silverblade Paladin is not that high impact and you might want to play Gather the Townsfolk as it synergises well with the rest of your deck. You can consider a mono-white token swarm strategy. In that vein, Doomed Traveler is a much better one-drop than Soldier of the Pantheon too. Metallic Mimic can be yet another Human lord in a pinch. Mana Tithe can be better than Grand Abolisher if you want to stop things on curve. And remember, if you side in Stony Silence, take out your Thraben Inspector first.

Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip would simply be a better one drop than Soldier of the Pantheon. Also, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is spot flavor-wise; cut Selfless Spirit as mass removal is almost irrelevant against a deck with such speed! Besides, Thalia makes removal of any kind actively worse as well slow down most of the top-tier decks of the format. Nice deck... +1!

It obviously depends on what you expect to face but I've personally found the pro-multicolour ability on Soldier of the Pantheon less likely to be relevant than the slight graveyard hate of Mardu Woe-Reaper.

Thanks for the feedback. I figured my original Naya Deck needed a lot of tweaking because I had yet to add fetches to the mix. I have always been told that Modern is a fast format so I figured the Paladin and Rampager was going to have to come out of the deck due to removal threats. The biggest thing I was wanting to make sure of is that Naya Humans is a viable option.
Is Gather the Townsfolk something that I should keep in the deck, or should I swap it out for more removal or another creature?
I know Caverns would be ideal for this deck, but that was severely take it out of the budget range that I had in mind. I was thinking I could splurge for Collected Company, but the Caverns are a little steep for my blood.

Way I see it, Naya Humans is probably the best way to go. You've got free humans. You've got bolt. You've got the good R/W humans. You've got lord effects.
First up, the land base could really do with tightening up. Fetches, shocks and basics, with 4 Cavern seem the ideal, as the ability to fetch up basics gives you some resilience to Blood Moon.
Silverblade Paladin is a bit lackluster as well, simply cause you turn off the double striking with...basically any removal spell. Mirran Crusader has protection from a lot of stuff you might see, and has double strike/same cost.
I think you want to max Bolt before you go up to 3 Boros Charm, and I think you want to max your gains from champion/mayor before you play rancors.
And it might not be a human, but Reckless Bushwhacker might be a better choice than Ghor-clan if you want to go wide.

Soldier of the Pantheon is a great 1 drop soldier. And if you're looking to focus on humans both Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant also work really well together. another suggestion would be Aether Vial to help flash in some soldiers to buff (so long as the price doesn't kill ya).
