Thalia's Lieutenant Discussion

StopShot on MTG Alesha Humans EDH

Hmmm, seems like you might limit yourself if you stick to just humans. Also the only cards in your deck that care if you play humans is Xathrid Necromancer, Thalia's Lieutenant, Champion of the Parish, and Falkenrath Aristocrat which that last one you can't reanimate with your commander.

You're probably going to want loads more tribal support if you're dedicated to just humans. This deck badly wants Adaptive Automaton, Door of Destinies, Kindred Boon, Kindred Dominance, Mirror Entity, Obelisk of Urd, Path of Ancestry, Shared Animosity, Shared Triumph, Stoneforge Masterwork, Taurean Mauler, Unclaimed Territory, Urza's Incubator, Vanquisher's Banner, and Cavalry Pegasus.

Besides tribal support, your deck might like Path to Exile, Boros Signet, and Sinister Concoction.

Lastly, while this is a humans tribal deck there are some non-human creatures that can give effects to all creatures, which when you think about it can be treated as though it were a tribal ability in essence. These creatures would be Angel of Invention, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, and Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, because their effects also apply to all your human creatures.

For humans, you really need to know how to play the matchup (I have been playing this deck for 5 months), and although they have ETBs, Eldrazi Displacer is one of your best cards in this matchup. You just have to be careful about your timing, and flicker everything before flickering a Champion of the Parish, or flicker everything after flickering Thalia's Lieutenant.

I would also advise cutting a Thraben Inspector for another Flickerwisp, as it can momentarily flicker away troublesome permanents like Tron lands and Ensnaring Bridge, which can be very bad for you.

I might also advise a pair of Auriok Champion instead of the Kor Firewalker and Kataki, War's Wage. I also think that you could use another Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Kambal, Consul of Allocation. Gideon is just a powerhouse in almost all midrange and control matchups, and Kambal makes burn a good matchup.

I have a mono white deck and my experience has been that it requires a lot of fine tuning to get it where you wants. I'm not sure your budget so I'll just throw down a bunch of ideas and you can pick what works.

I agree that Extraplanar Lens and Snow-Covered Plains can be helpful but in general you need some more white mana rocks. Marble Diamond, Tooth of Ramos, Darksteel Ingot, Pearl Medallion, Thunder Totem and Tithe can all help with this. Pillar of Origins maybe work too.

You need some removal, or at least restrictions. Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Darksteel Mutation, Prison Term, Oblivion Ring are all options. Rout, Fumigate and Mass Calcify are great board wipes as well.

You could use some tribal support, Metallic Mimic, Adaptive Automaton and Thalia's Lieutenant are both creature based options. Herald's Horn, Door of Destinies, Coat of Arms, Heirloom Blade, and Kindred Boon

I hope this info is helpful

I would drop a lot of the instant package to get Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Champion of the Parish, and Thalia's Lieutenant

You could drop the Mana Confluence for Ancient Ziggurat as it also produces any color and does not cost you life.

If you are playing white you can run Path to Exile, and G/B Abrupt Decay as those are some top tier removal spells in modern.

you are almost tribal humans, if you wanted to go that route you could cut the 2 non human creatures in your deck for Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant, but i understand if you do not want to change the theme.

the next step i would suggest is to build a sideboard for your local meta and play a bunch of games.

Thanks for the compliment--hopefully I can be of some use! I playtested this in a couple different matchups and had the following feedback:

The biggest issue I had was with the number of 4-5 costed cards in this deck. With over 10% of your deck consisting of 4+ mana cards, and only two cards devoted to ramp, I often found these items languishing in my hand. Modern is a pretty brutal format, and 4-5 drops need to make a substantial difference in the game.

Both Increasing Devotion and Panharmonicon missed the mark for me. They came down too late, and did very little the turn they were played.

I'm not convinced Burn at the Stake is a necessary win condition given the power of Humans (currently the best tribe in Modern), but it was pretty fun, and I appreciate the finding of new, exciting ways to win.

I think you could stand to capitalize on the power of Humans a bit more. Run four copies of Champion of the Parish and add four Thalia's Lieutenant. That should give you another path to victory should your primary plan fail.

For your sideboard, you should add Disenchant for artifact/combo/enchantment decks, as you currently do not have an answer. Instead of Soul Warden, consider Auriok Champion - while it costs more to cast, you'll mostly want to sideboard in your cleric against Red burn, so the protection is invaluable.
