Spectral Procession Discussion

So modern is a faster format than standard is with wins as early as turn 3. A lot of decks averaging out to a turn 4 win. So the enchantments seem a little slow in my book. Birds of Paradise is better than Sylvan Caryatid. It can let you turn 2 Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and turn 3 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, both o which make tokens right away. Spectral Procession makes fliers. fliers are basically unblockable in modern. Lingering Souls more fliers. Run 1 Overgrown Tomb and you can hit its flashback. Raise the Alarm is 2 drop instant that makes 2 1/1's. Path to Exile because every deck needs removal. Avacyn's Pilgrim more early ramp. Gavony Township makes all your tokens more threatening. Windbrisk Heights some card advantage. A one of Westvale Abbey Flip to put yourself over the top. maybe a 1 of Craterhoof Behemoth for end game.Selesnya Charm is a decent tool box card. Elspeth, Knight-Errant looks super annoying.Beckon Apparition graveyard removal for a flier. Chord of Calling to find an end game creature. Sword of Body and Mind make a 1/1 flier a 3/3 that does things.

You'll never get to the 7 Plains needed to use Emeria's ability, nor should you have to--the game will be over either way at point. You'd be better off running some more basics, utility like 1-2 Ghost Quarters, or perhaps 1-2 Windbrisk Heights for a little built-in card advantage.
You're only really halfway in on the "Soldier" tribal theme. You might re-tool it to be "Human" tribal; you gain access to a whole host of powerful stuff like Mirran Crusader, Knight of the White Orchid, Student of Warfare, etc. that you weren't running before.

GeminiSpartanX Thanks for the input. I'm messing around where I want Hidden Stockpile. It seem like it could be good mainboard but i think you're right it will serve better in Sideboard. I do however disagree with Sram's Expertise. Turn 4 playing that could mean getting 3 tokens and LOTV for free or 5 tokens with Lingering Souls for free. I found myself not liking Spectral Procession because it was very rare that I would be able to cast it turn 3 due to better plays or the odd occasion of not having the triple W. I'm not a huge fan of Concealed Courtyard over Isolated Chapel. With how many Swamps and Plains i run it is very very rare that I don't have one of them turn 1 or turn 2. Especially later on when they would come in tapped and say it was an Isolated Chapel instead I could do the big play turn 4 as opposed to waiting an extra turn.

I'm not a fan of the aether revolt additions. Sram's Expertise competes with your walkers at the 4-drop slot whereas Spectral Procession ideally was your turn 3 play. Flying tokens are much better in general. Hidden Stockpile seems like a SB card to bring in against controlling decks rather than a MD inclusion, similar to some elf lists including Prowess of the Fair in the SB.

As someone who played heroic in standard and loved it I have tried time and time again to make it work but I have not been able to make it happen. I found that it is just worst bogles and it makes me pretty sad. I would recommend a more go wide strategy that utilizes phalanx leader for modern heroic and avoiding enchantments as modern removal is incredibly strong and you will likely just find yourself getting 2 for 1'd. I really like Spectral Procession and Gather the Townsfolk for token generation and phalanx leader to pump them all as well as Intangible Virtue. That is just my personal opinion for budget heroic in modern. I think that 1 mana protection spells to keep your phalanx leader alive are also very strong, Ajani's Presence and Gods Willing come to mind but I am sure their others. that is my best idea to make a cheap competitive deck utilizing the heroic mechanic. Monastery Mentor is also a lot of fun in decks like that but I believe he is a few dollars a copy so it would raise the price of the deck. A normal sort of token shell and soul sisters with phalanx leader puts you in the position to run token synergy or human synergy if you like. Lots of possibilities and it really allows Phalanx Leader to shine. Been looking for a way to use my full art play set!

lingering souls ain't so fly with the black flashback - but mighnight haunting is great :D I'm also kinda wanting to put Spectral Procession in there, but 3 white mana symbols is a little risky, in that I might very well not be able to cast it on curve - or even close to

Kushala thanks for suck a quick response! I don't really need the life gain, so I appreciate the alternatives. A large majority of these cards were given to me, and I augmented the with random booster packs. To be honest, I didn't even know dual lands existed, but I will do some research and sub them in, so thanks for the info. One last thing, when you say a "playset of Spectral Procession", do you mean four of them? I'm a bit new to all the lingo, but I quite enjoy MTG and hope to get more into it.

Since this is posted in legacy, and you're running farseek, I feel obligated to point out ABU dual lands, or shock lands for a budget alternative. More lingering souls, add in a playset of Spectral Procession, replace solemn offering with Disenchant, Naturalize, or Appetite for the Unnatural if you really want the life gain, although that could be done much better with any number of either of the soul sisters, as well as the green equivalent.
