Thalia, Heretic Cathar Discussion
2 days ago
If you want to cut legendaries in the humans deck, cut Thalia, Heretic Cathar. She is the most expensive one and not as impactful as the others.
Your Vampires look ok to me. If you want a legendary for them too, Olivia, Mobilized for War is the way to go.
Any game between these two decks will be asymetric. Vampires can win faster, but humans will win virtually all games that take longer than ~10 rounds. That doesn't imply one deck is better, just keep it in mind when evaluating them against each other.

Heya, I've been working on my own version of mono white humans. Though mine has a red splash to give it some spice after sideboard. I'll link it in case you want to take a look:
So to give feedback on your deck. Starting with creatures:
Devoted Crop-Mate is cute but I'm not sure it can be as strong as I would like it to be. 3CMC is already expensive for this kind of effect and odds are it dies the moment it ETB's or your opponent uses a board wipe and it dies along with the rest. It's kind of the reason why Trueheart Duelist is also kinda meh. At 3CMC I want to be playing Always Watching , Gideon of the Trials or a 1CMC + 2CMC card. That's why I think there's reasons not to run this kind of on attack effect even though it might look good on paper. A better creature I think would be Gust Walker.
The same can be said of Lone Rider Flip which never really found a home. Being a human 1/1 for 2CMC is awful. If you flip it, it's no longer human which means it doesn't benefit from the human tribal aspect of the deck. You also need to gain life, which can only be achieved via Glory-Bound Initiate or having to jump through multiple hoops to achieve, in order to flip him into a good creature. Bleh. Imo, cut that and instead put Thalia, Heretic Cathar in the main. Much better creature quality imo.

multimedia Using Lifecrafter's Bestiary more for the scry ability to filter through unneeded lands, as going down to 18 lands hurts the deck early game when they are needed. The extra when casting a creature to draw helps and they stack. Most players leave the permanent alone and prefer to go after Sylvan Advocate or Winding Constrictor or really anything else which is pressuring them. This helps get me to the bigger creatures in the later game if needed.
Tireless Tracker is a great card and I should look at putting it back in. I do sideboard 2 Authority of the Consuls to help guard against the copy cat and the R/W human aggro decks, along with some counter spells. Since this comes in game 2 or 3 most of the opponents have side boarded in for creature hate which helps it stick around once played.
Thalia, Heretic Cathar is a good card and I would use her if I had any, so I could keep creature pressure on the opponent. I like her ability to slow down opponent mana and creatures. Where Authority let's me gain 1+ life when they enter.
Looking forward to trying out your BANT version after release in a couple weeks.

systip, thanks. If you're wanting more draw Tireless Tracker is great. She interacts very well with Winding Constrictor since clues you crack put counters on her. Maybe you're already using Tracker and Lifecrafter's Bestiary is more additional draw?
gleeson.token, Thalia, Heretic Cathar is a good suggestion for a sideboard card, thanks. Manglehorn can stop the Copy Cat combo while having other uses, artifact removal which Thalia can't provide. Vehicles, Tower, Marvel, Gearhulks, Scrapheap, Ballista, etc. These are all problematic artifacts that most of the top decks in Standard are using.

I'm not entirely sure of what your local meta-game is, but based on your reasons for putting Manglehorn in, wouldn't it seem more plausible to use Thalia, Heretic Cathar instead? It shuts down copy cat, and slows your opponents mana base.

I like that you're trying to convert it.
When you jump from the human tribal shell into Naya "Good Stuff" essentially, you will need to lose the Metallic Mimic as you are no longer all in on the tribal. Once you take that away then Expedition Envoy suddenly loses a lot of it's value (especially when you're SO heavy on the 1-drop slot.)
I see no Thalia, Heretic Cathar so now we add 2 copies for all the utility it brings.
Here is where it gets tricky. With 6 slots left I would personally assign them thus: 3 Thalia's Lancers as this deck is laden with Legendary creatures. 2 Gisela, the Broken Blade as she is naturally stronger than her other half, and 1 Bruna, the Fading Light. Bruna is a massive 7-drop and as such we would rather tutor her up with the lancers than draw her early.
