Thalia, Guardian of Thraben Discussion
3 days ago
Glad you asked.
It kills Dark Confidant , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Snapcaster Mage , Noble Hierarch , Sakura-Tribe Scout and any other pesky X/1's you might run into. But, more importantly it allows you keep an empty handed opponent empty handed. By responding to their draw step, instant speed discard when the opponent is in top deck mode can act as a Time Walk .
It can alternatively be used to pump Mutavault for the last couple points of damage or just give it swampwalk against the right deck.

Sorry if any of these are in the deck. I'm admittedly just copying and pasting a post I did for another Lavinia list.
Fatespinner (this card is amazing), Thorn of Amethyst , Sphere of Resistance , Defense Grid , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , Torpor Orb , Kataki, War's Wage , Tocatli Honor Guard , Propaganda , Ghostly Prison , Rite of Replication , Winter Orb , Rising Waters , Stasis , and Static Orb are all options as you tweak this for your meta.

I have a friend that runs a budget-y version of spirits, and let me tell you Remand is super important to his strategy. However, he is not running a Tallowisp package either which eats up some slots...
A good budget card for this strategy is Ojutai's Command . It's pretty flexible and says draw a card and can work as an ALTERNATIVE to Cryptic Command if you want to. I don't know that that's necessary either though.
As for some sideboard options, graveyard hate should be a number one priority right now with dredge and Arclight Phoenix being silly. Rest in Peace is probably the best card for your list, however, Relic of Progenitus and Tormod's Crypt would also work (Relic > Tormod's). A great creature for this list in the sideboard is Remorseful Cleric as it can serve as a creature or as graveyard hate, so maybe consider this as well.
Some counter magic in the side is also great, namely Negate to beat up on any and all non creature spells as well as Spell Snare to just stop 2-drops ( Snapcaster Mage , Manamorphose and any of storms Rituals or Dorks to name a few). Other great options against storm (and storm type decks, looking at you Phoenix type of decks) can be Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Render Silent and even Silence to stall out a turn.
For your sideboard right now, I'd for sure recommend putting in...
2x Spell Snare
and then removing...
2x Spell Pierce
2x Mana Leak

It looks to me like the top end of your deck is too heavy. Most modern decks don't play anything above cmc 3. The midrange and control decks will have only 4ish cards with cmc 4 or 5. Basically, you should only need to draw 1 card with cmc 4 or 5, which means you only need to run at most 5 such cards. Exquisite blood and sanguine bond are overkill. You are very unlikely to get the combo off. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is a great option for a finisher. He turns the corner vs aggro decks.
I highly highly recommend playing 4 Fatal Push and 4 Cast Down for your removal. Doom Blade misses Gurmag Angler and Death's Shadow (among other relevant creatures too). Cast Down only misses Thalia, Guardian of Thraben and the 1-of Lyra Dawnbringer from UW Control sideboards.

I love this deck, I have a really similar [modern] deck Humans to Demons, but I focus more on amassing humans that sacrificing, however, I do include Westvale Abbey Flip for additional sac opportunities. Xathrid Necromancer and Athreos, God of Passage make losing creatures less painful. Both Thalia, Guardian of Thraben and Thalia, Heretic Cathar prove to be great humans to have in your sideboard.
I'd appreciate it if you checked out my deck. Thank ya, and I hope you find my suggestions helpful!

At this point it feels like how storm wins is fairly clear... is it worth us noting the different sideboard options you can field against storm to shut them down??
Personally I just run Damping Sphere , though if i’m in white I may also go with Eidolon of Rhetoric or Thalia, Guardian of Thraben . If in black, lots of discard and graveyard removal can usually do it on its own also. Chalice of the Void on 2 is almost certainly an auto-win also (it’s their favourite number).
Sorry if this is a bit off-topic, I just feel that knowing a decks weaknesses is a big part of knowing a deck.
