Kataclysm on Odric's Aether Revolt (W/B)

Funny to see you making the same decision as me - cutting Solemn Recruit. Only difference is that I cracked a Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and Heart of Kiran to fill the slot, with Odric #3 to really guarantee the theme payoff.

there are better revolt cards (as a replacement for Silkweaver Elite), Solemn Recruit. Solemn recruit has double strike which is good, its revolt trigger is every one of your endstep (not etb), and then if you use solemn recruits, you'd also want Implement of Ferocity, because that gives counters, draws you a card, and also triggers revolt.

also, just in case you are trying to set up for an awesome next turn and you have two copycats bouncing eachother, if you have Lifecrafter's Bestiary, you can spend some open green mana to draw some cards, which helps you get cards you're missing (such as that nature's way i suggested earlier, or any other card you need at that time).

PeeBee on standard budget deck that might give me a chance

You have too many 2 mana drops, and there doesnt seem to be any aim for the deck, just a bunch of creatures in the colors black red and white. You will also need to change the manabase up a little, while 24 lands is probably correct, you will need dual lands and fetch lands to make sure you have got the correct colours on each of your turns, I would suggest adding in x4 Evolving Wilds and some combination of the following Concealed Courtyard or Forsaken Sanctuary // Foreboding Ruins or Smoldering Marsh

I can see you have quite a few humans in your deck and you may want to change this into a mardu human aggro deck, with inclusions of cards like Thalia's Lieutenant, Metallic Mimic and Thraben Inspector, which would mean you could drop non-human cards like Aethergeode Miner, Gifted Aetherborn and Solemn Recruit.

I would suggest looking at some tournament decks and looking at the synergies that have, and trying to find cards that work together well.

Drop Smoldering Marsh for another white producing land. Also look into dropping Solemn Recruit for another white land. It is not a human and I think 35 lands is just too little to try and hit that third land drop which your deck needs to start doing things. About every land you add adds another .5% into starting a game with 3 lands, and adding another 3% to hitting a land drop on turn 3.

Great deck! I've just been making pretty much this deck over the last day and had similar ideas but untested. I thought by using Aethergeode Miner and Hidden Stockpile to trigger revolt, I could turn on the Solemn Recruit.

Are you getting enough mana when playing? I notice relatively few mana rocks/dorks/ramp.

I don't like to run 3 drops with 1xx cost because sometimes I don't get 2x of one color. So I would look at cutting Solemn Recruit, Brimaz, King of Oreskos,Drana, Liberator of Malakir. I run less creatures in my Saskia deck in favor of instants, I can see an argument for either option.

-Gaddock Teeg helps against wrath
-Burning-Tree Shaman can be punishing for many opponents like Breya.
-Sram, Senior Edificer since you run SFM, Looter Scooter...
-Selfless Spirit for wipes
-Goblin Welder, low on the curve can really slow opponents starts, might be better in certain meta's. I get a lot of infinate artifact shenanigans here.
-Tireless Tracker just draws you cards and carries swords
-Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip with your creature count could do some work.

-Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile
-Hide/Seek plays well with Sunforger
-Kolaghan's Command
-Austere Command

I will try to post my list soon as I get time :)

Your average converted mana cost is 2.45, which is pretty high for an agro deck. You should either run a couple more lands, or a few more 1-drops. If you decide to run more 1-drops, you should take out some of your removal. Not all of it, just enough to make the deck more agro and less removal. Village Messenger  Flip is awesome on turn one, as is Bomat Courier. If you do run Bomat Courier, Built to Smash is a good card to run with it.

I personally love Collective Effort, which I see you have in the sideboard. If it were me, I would run a lot of 1 and 2-drops, then have four Collective Effort and at least two Always Watching in the mainboard. Your Solemn Recruit would work really well with those two cards. Hope this helps.
