Suture Priest Discussion

Growing Ranks creates a token that's a copy of another creature token so it's especially useful in combination with your additions like Hanweir Militia Captain Flip and Suture Priest to crank out token creatures faster, but I guess I'm missing how that benefits (or extends) Selfless Spirit's Effect.
Either way, I think it's a good call to sideboard Chromatic Lantern . If you don't find yourself swapping it in after a while, just replace it altogether.

Apollo_Paladin Thank you for the compliment. I gave a look at your deck, and it gave me some ideas, specifically with Unearth . I know what you're thinking with Chromatic Lantern but I really like it as a little bit of an insurance policy to help maintain floating mana. I took your advice with moving Nova Cleric to the sideboard until I find something more cost effective for enchantment removal; so more updates to come. I also removed Dark Supplicant and the Scion of Darkness . It felt like unnecessary/cumbersome when more efficient means of sacrificing exist and adding another Coat of Arms seems like a better use of space.
So far my favorite combo that I have been playing around with involves sacrificing Selfless Spirit for 1-3 zombies tokens (courtesy of Rotlung Reanimator ), then tapping cleric tokens that Hanweir Militia Captain Flip provided to use Skirsdag High Priest and get 1-4 demon tokens, then using Unearth to put Selfless Spirit back into and ready to sac again for the next turn, and depending on how many Suture Priests are on field gaining 3-12 life for the low low cost of 1 mana, pending what is already on the field of course. Additionally, Coat of Arms really makes this a nasty combo.

CNobre I have updated the list after the full modern horizons spoiler. For the cards that your suggesting:
Aven Mindcensor This card is so good. It is insane how much this single component card will shut down other decks before they get going. I can flash this in in response to fetchlands, tutors, and many different search effects that highly restrict my opponents ability to play their deck properly.
Suture Priest Is a two sided coin that prevents my opponents from attempting to go to wide and take over the board with creatures. It also prevents any infinite combos that use creatures moving back and forth on the battlefield. Forcing my opponent to find an answer to suture priest before they can try to go off. Right now I agree it is one of the weaker card options but it has stalled so many games that I can never find a better replacement.
Giver of Runes I think you are mistaken on this cards effect. If it was protection to any permanent this would be better than Mother of Runes but sadly it only gives your creatures protection. I can't use it to protect my auras/epuipment. In fact giving my creature protection from white causes any of my auras to fall off said creature instead. I don't want to many of these effects as they are counter productive as keeping my creatures alive is less of a early game strategy and keeping the board clear of threats is my main priority for the first half of the game.
Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs This is a great budget card to cards like Ghostly Prison , Peacekeeper , Crawlspace and Koskun Falls . In my opinion the card does very little as I don't need to prevent my opponent from attacking if I just kill all the creatures before hand. I opted for mass removal and targeted removal over taxing my opponents because these kind of cards make people want to attack you after they've dealt with them. With removal I can use it as leverage to keep people from attacking me, but also I can use them to make allies. When someone gets to strong and another player offers a truce I can use my removal to help make alliances with other players.
Chandra's Ignition Now this also refers to all board wipes as you mentioned them collectively. But this particular card is so good I had to single it out. The way this card works is I can target my general and because the card has her deal the damage it turns into a card that wipes the board except for my general. If Im playing this card I either have very little else to lose on the return or I am in a position where I can't be stingy about losing my board and I can use my superior draw/top deck to establish boardstate before my opponent can recover. It has won me so many games as I always recover my board state faster through the Monarch token and cheap removal options that my opponents cant find answers to.
I am reaching my limit of characters for one post and will continue in the next one.

SwiftDeath don't know if you updated your list recently but others things I noticed is that you also have a bit of imbalance between threats/answers.
On the creatures I would absolutely cut Aven Mindcensor and Suture Priest as I thing they do too little. You'll be much happier with Giver of Runes protecting the targets of your auras/equipments. I would absolutely run Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs . For 5cmc you get a 5/4 that drops a 3/3 per attacking creature unless he/she pays 3!! They will just attack somewhere else.
You also run an insane quantity of board wipe effects (9) plus a ton of spot removal. I would definitely make some cuts here: Chandra's Ignition and Wrath of God could be cut to add a couple of tutors that will help find you answers when you need them. Liliana Vess , Beseech the Queen are budget options that perform just fine. On the spot removal you are already running plenty of great choices and I don't see a reason to run weaker cards like Crush Contraband , Mortify . You can just replace them with a bit of card draw like Read the Bones and Sign in Blood to find help find the good ones ;)

ThielAthar Oh okay that makes perfect sense. I tried looking around for an answer to this but other places seemed to gloss over it too. The rest of it all makes sense and it's really cool!
I was making a build that just ran Devoted Druid + Vizier of Remedies + Suture Priest , but that build couldn't win at instant speed and either required Phelddagrif to be out already or enough mana to cast it ( only makes infinite green mana ). Your build is awesome.
