Thalia's Lieutenant Discussion
11 hours ago
I'd consider taking out Spear of Heliod in favor of the Return to the Ranks or something similar. If you really want the effect, I'd go with Honor of the Pure. It doesn't work on 2 creatures (6 cards total), but it comes down a turn earlier or you can play it and another 1 drop on turn 3.
Since you're fairly new, just a little reminder. If you Return to the Ranks multiple Thalia's Lieutenants, they all trigger together, so they give counters as well as get counters for every human entering the battlefield at the same time. It's a glorious sight.

okay, wow, I like this general idea for a deck. Nice Job! The biggest problem I see is that you have a lot of cards that synergize nicely with token decks, without including much token generation itself. Although things like Bone Picker is SUPER satisfying if you can cast it for one black mana, it doesn't make any tokens itself, which is sorta the point with zulaport tokens decks. Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim are both great sac outlets, I might add one or two more of them for consistency, unless you find you are drawing them enough (you wanna make sure you can kill off your tokens anytime so a board wipe or certain spot removal doesn't ruin your plan entirely)Anointer Priest provides value with tokens, but i think the extra life she gives you isn't worth the efficiency you could be getting with other cards, not to mention her embalm cost is pretty expensive for it's value. (Maybe try Pious Evangel Flip in her place if you like the life as I think his flip is sort of like a Zulaport CutthroatNext you need some better token generation. Things that make your board really wide really fast. Servo Exhibition Sram's Expertise Angel of Invention even Visionary Augmenter for budget. This should increase your consistency in token generation much more. And then once that is reliable you can worry about proper removal. lemme know if this helped, I like these kind of concepts so I'll try and keep in touch with this one if you find it becomes more consistent!

To help you out the best I would say you need to focus the deck more. In a nutshell, as I see it, you have 3 ways to play in MTG; You make your opponent answer what your doing, You answer your opponent and you answer you opponent till your ready to play. "You make your opponent answer what your doing" aggro and burn are your prime exp. here (some times combo falls in here too like strom). Both of those deck archetypes don't care what your doing, they are all in game plan and for the most part don't run a plan B. "You answer your opponent" is every ones love to hate decks control decks and fog like decks (combo offent falls in here). Going in shields up, answer every threat their opponent plays till they play their Door to Nothingness(i win card). Midrange is "You answer your opponent and you answer you opponent till your ready to play", the typical game plan is to pave the way for you bigger creature by either Thoughtseize way their answers your your threats and/or ramping to get them out.
What I want to get at with out sounding pretentious ass, stream line the focus. From the sound of things you like the synergy of Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant. Running with that I would drop Brion Stoutarm (4 drop with low board Impact and we were over how fling is just more win), Gather the Townsfolk(W/out a champ or Lieutenant on the field it feels like a dead card) and 2 Thatcher Revolt (same as towns folk but, does have chance at crazy output with the nut draw). Add in 3 Lightning Berserker (casting it with dash) and 3 Norin the Wary also, add 4 Lightning Helix. Kari Zev's Expertise has to go (cute combo with fling but, really you don't want to answer their creatures right?) along with Soulfire Grand Master (doesn't do much in this deck) and 2 flings for, 4Burning-Tree Emissary and 4 Lightning Mauler. In short Naya Humans w/out green, for more deck ideals thiers Stake Sisters looks fun as well and Burn is also, a thing.

I think this deck would probably be improved a lot by adding more 1-drops to speed it up; games in which your first action is to play a turn 2 Hanweir Militia Captain or Thalia's Lieutenant are going to be difficult to win because it takes too long for your deck to really get going. I suggest some Avacyn's Pilgrims (and/or Noble Hierarchs if you have the money) and Champion of the Parishs to give the deck some powerful turn 1 plays. I would take out the Always Watching s since they don't affect your tokens; if you want ways to pump up your creatures Mayor of Avabruck or Metallic Mimic seem like a better fit.
I suggest removing Murder Investigation; it can be powerful but it's also pretty clunky and without a reliable way to kill whatever it's attached to there are going to be too many games where it's a do-nothing card. I'm also pretty sceptical of Pious Evangel Flip; it seems like a lot of mana for something that's not much better than a Soul's Attendant.
All that being said, I think the biggest concern with the deck as it stands is the mana-base. In a 3-colour deck without many dual lands, you're running a pretty big risk of having games where you can't cast the cards in your hand because you just don' have the right colours for the job. I would strongly consider taking the out of the deck and going for a straight Selesnya and looking into adding Sunpetal Grove, Temple Garden, Razorverge Thicket, Windswept Heath, Brushland and/or Horizon Canopy as your budget permits.

I think that you need to take out Rush of Battle, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Herald of Dromoka, and Brighthearth Banneret and add in Declaration in Stone Thalia's Lieutenant Thalia, Heretic Cathar and make Glory-Bound Initiate a 4 of, finally add in Glorybringer and just make this deck standard. I think in modern and in legacy this deck would get ripped apart but boros exert is popular in standard right now. and then you could make it Human to help with Thalia's Lieutenant. Maybe add Hanweir Garrison too

Kyln, thanks for the advice.
I would be apprehensive about the plainswalker, and solider tokens they create, not boosting Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant, which is the core of the deck. Are there cards that create human soldier tokens?
