Soltari Foot Soldier Discussion

What's the appeal of Gingerbrute? Sure it's cheap and got haste but you have to pay to make it unblockable* everytime, and it doesn't do much otherwise. (If I really wanted a 1 CMC evasion creature I'd probably just go for Soltari Foot Soldier or something.)
For better or worse, I feel my deck is too bottom-heavy for Selvala's Stampede to be a haymaker at CMC 6.
I'm standing by sunny Elspeth for now since she herself can live trough most wraths and get to rebuilding with a token per opponent right away.
(Also I kinda have the urge to brew a superfriends Marisi deck now, we'll see if that goes anywhere)

perhaps a Mind's Eye over Vanquisher's Banner and a Kindred Boon to hand out to key soldiers. Tragic Arrogance is like a Cataclysmic Gearhulk, but you get to pick what your opponents are losing. the Odric, Lunarch Marshal is handy for passing out buffs, and Odric, Master Tactician is great for combat manipulation. Mirror Entity is a great soldier that provides a great base stat change. Ranger of Eos is also a soldier and fetches some handy 1 costs, like your Legion Loyalist and Soltari Foot Soldier. Overall, cool deck. +1

Okay, so if this pairing, we are doing tempo things again, you're doing proactive hand destruction while I'm doing reactive permission, but we both get crushed pretty hard to if the board gets wiped. Living Death so you can tutor it for those matchups where we need to be expecting to get wrathed?
The way I think about discard is you-choose-what-they-discard is better than discard-at-random which is better than opponent-chooses-what-to-discard. You don't have to force them to discard everything, the right thing is enough. I'd run Cloak of Confusion over Mind Rot to make a one drop with evasion into a hypnotic spectre.
Go for the Throat -> Cull the Weak You're leaning really heavily into small creatures now and have a lot of powerful x spell and wincons that rely on quite a lot of mana, so it's likely you will have a creature to sac to power out an adNaus/hatred/hellfire/mindTwist. also useful for the turn you adnaus as a redundant dark ritual for a sickening dreams/collective brutality
how are you going to use Unearth and Reanimate here? small 1/1 flier fells bad to reanimate with these, maybe consider slotting Fellwar Stone, MindStone in to help out with the mana situation or the other cards named above?

Shadow Creatures... I had a mono-white Shadow deck back in the day that wrecked. Check this out,
T3: Empyrial Armor
T4: Serra's Blessing
They can't block or target your creature (pretty much) and you can pick off their attackers with Archery Training. I also ran a lot of bull like Story Circle, and Scent of Jasmine, but Magic was a different game back then...
I don't play EDH, but I've always thought that I want to make a deck that uses Mogis, God of Slaughter as it's Commander.
I love meta breaking brews that aren't supposed to work but do. I have a devil deck that has proven to be the experience you talked about called Sinful Devils that got everybody talking at FNM last week. The people I beat and the people that beat me were excited that I was playing the cards that I had together. There were many dynamic moments that put the decisions in your opponents hands, and it sounds like a deck you may enjoy.
In fact, that was reason I came here was to tell you about that deck since you had mentioned Impact Tremors on my Modern Goblins. I read your introduction and basically everything you said hit home. Very cool.

I feel like your deck needs to be faster. I would add in more 1 costing creatures, so you can start enchanting and beating a turn earlier. To make room for some 1 costing creatures, I would cut Capashen Knight (you don't want to spend time and mana buffing him) and Charging Paladin (just too weak for it's cost).
There's a lot of 1 costing creatures to choose from.
Serra Zealot, Lagonna-Band Trailblazer, Benevolent Bodyguard, Deftblade Elite, Gideon's Lawkeeper, Icatian Javelineers, Nyxborn Shieldmate, Soltari Foot Soldier, and the list goes on.
