Thalia, Heretic Cathar Discussion

chadsansing on Vroom-vroom! Red-White Vehicles

Gideon of the Trials might be the better Gideon here, and there are some Modern creatures like Vexing Devil that will let you damage opponents early or get a great creature for crewing.

Champion of the Parish, Thraben Inspector, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Grand Abolisher, and Thalia's Lieutenant would give you a humans sub-theme making Cavern of Souls and Aether Vial possible inclusions, as well. It's probably more important in mod Modern that you have hate bears (creatures with tax effects) that limit your opponents instead of creatures that pump your vehicles. You need to slow down the pace of play to make your vehicles impactful. Monastery Swiftspear would also be a cool inclusion since you could trigger Prowess off of casting artifacts to help it crew larger vehicles.

You should also run Path to Exile and/or Lightning Bolt for early removal and maybe Faithless Looting for draw. Consider ditching the Gearhulks.

If you play a creature list with more hate bears, you definitely want something like Oblivion Ring or Shatterstorm in the sideboard to fight off Chalice of the Void on 1 and 2 because Disenchant and Ancient Grudge will get beat by Chalice, too.

Have fun with the vehicles!

I need help to find the best to suit into my deck. Thalia, Heretic Cathar vs Kitchen Finks vs Tireless Tracker vs Anafenza, the Foremost vs any other?

Deck is a little toolboxy oriented. (Archangel Avacyn  Flip, Traverse the Ulvenwald for example)

A lot of what is being said above I'd tend to agree on, so I won't go over that here. If you want the most competitive humans list just run the 5 color lists, so much consistency and aggression in those lists with a ton of lil humans is insane. However, if you want something fun then I don't see an issue in humans but there are a few things to add on to that.

First off, someone above mentioned issues with Thali. You are running 18 non-creature spells that will be taxed in a weenie style deck, and that is way to high. With Weenie decks, early aggro is your entire game plan. Steal games early by throwing a ton of little humans around to be as annoying as possible, so taxing all your spells might not be the best plan. In the least, Gather the Townsfolk, Lightning Bolt and Honor of the Pure needs to come out, I also feel that Copter needs to come out but that is your call.

In their place, you could look into Hanweir Garrison + Hanweir Battlements. I'd split 4-2. This way, if the early plan becomes stifled you have an option of a semi midrangey deck. Plus, Hanweir Garrison + Champion of the Parish is some good synergy.

I'd definitely add in Thraben Inspector, since it replaces itself with a new card.

Other good human options are...

Thalia, Heretic Cathar --> I know she's been mentioned above, but she is relatively strong and a good attacker/blocker.

Harsh Mentor --> I never felt good with him in play, but if there are a ton of manlands in your meta or affinity, he is a fun card.

Mirran Crusader --> long time sideboard card lately turned main board due to the rise of Death's Shadow.

Doomed Traveler --> He does his job, chump and make a dude.

Aegis of the Gods --> Super Budget leyline of sanctity.

Ash Zealot --> A great sideboard card!

Ethersworn Canonist --> Another great sideboard card.

Hopefully this helps!

I would also cut red you wouldnt need fethlands and you already have path for removal.

If you were mono colored you could play Ghost Quarter or Field of Ruin, cut the fethlands then. You should defenitely not play Nykthos its legendary its unreliable in producing white mana and you defenitely not need ramp at all with this curve.

I do agree with Student of Warfare, its not a good card.

But Thraben Inspector is awesome as someone pointed out.

Same is true for Aether Vial, thats a really good card.

Maybe you want to throw in 1 or 2 Thalia, Heretic Cathar
