Thalia's Lieutenant Discussion
4 days ago
Hello Bramdal thank you for the suggestions.
I think Thraben Inspector is slow for this deck. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben probably in sideboard. Charming Prince, he can bounce Thalia's Lieutenant and soldier and knight protecting a noble why not ! haha I like the idea but I prefer focus on humans/soldiers/knights in priority. Militia Bugler could be nice to retrieve some cards but I probably go for Benalish Marshal. Basri's Lieutenant seems nice but not in the mainboard.
Concerning the cards you would cut :
Akrasan Squire and Fiendslayer Paladin will be in first line. Martial Coup will follow but not yet decided the substitution. Launch the Fleet is the signature card of this deck :) Wing Shards don't know yet. Knight Exemplar will replace Fiendslayer Paladin

a few suggestions:
Thalia, Guardian of Thraben,
Basri's Lieutenant(4 Mana might be to high, but he is really nice with Thalia's Lieutenant.
cards i would consider to cut:
Launch the Fleet,
Fiendslayer Paladin (exept you know, your opponents gonna play red or black, otherwise this would be better in a sideboard, maybe together with Mirran Crusader),
Knight Exemplar (I think your knight count is to low),

bChulane doesn't really go with any of the tempo disruption strategies that Modern Humans has. It really feels like a normal edh creature deck, which just happens to use the same creature type.
Modern Humans is entirely based on Kitesail Freebooter's ability with Meddling Mage to shut out combo decks, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben's ability to slow them down and protect your board, and the Champion of the Parish, Mantis Rider, Thalia's Lieutenant setup to end the game at fast speeds with the otherwise weak hatebears. Adding in the rest of the deck you see that the goal of Humans isn't to combo with humans, but to be an anti-noncreature deck with hatebears, which use Aether Vial to get around counterspells, and then use Cavern of Souls as well as a tribal base just to pump out a bit more damage and consistency in the Modern format.
Drawing cards and playing additional lands as you speed through your deck of creatures isn't Humans, it's much more akin to Legacy Elves.

Mh, I might just get a playset of Thalia's Lieutenant. It is a fantastic card in a human themed deck. Do you have some suggestians for the top of the curve? Would you cap at 3 mana? Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice has the flavor and can do something right when she comes down, Hero of Oxid Ridge has haste and buffs the other creatures as well. But then, is he better than the Spark Trooper I already have? Some battallion cards like Firemane Avenger + Tajic, Blade of the Legion would be nice, but they often times feel a bit slow at 4. The Mauler is oftentimes already paired, and then they feel a bit situational.

Thank you very much for your detailed response. Thalia's Lieutenant is just slightly out of my budget comfort zone, but would otherwise be a strong addition. Yeah, I kind of wanted to stay on the battalion route, since it's one of the original mechanics of the block. I will add some updates later.

I think you definitely got the right idea here with the changes. Lightning Helix is definitely better than Searing Spear. Have you considered Thalia's Lieutenant? It pairs really well with the Champion of the Parish on T2.
If you're leaning more towards the battalion route, I would suggest Akroan Hoplite (pairs great with Silverblade) and Hanweir Garrison. Though the Garrison can be a little slow (unless paired with the Mauler), it does pump the Champion and Lieutenant pretty consistently.

You can probably afford to play a couple more two drops. Swiftblade Vindicator is a monster to deal with and Akroan Hoplite could become a threat with how wide your board state gets. I would also trade out one of your one drops for a couple copies of Thraben Inspector. It is not as aggressive and provides at least some card advantage. If you are able to recur it with Lurrus of the Dream-Den you could get some extra clues and triggers on Thalia's Lieutenant.

Second wind thoughts because I can't stop:
You should see how many of the samurai in your next iteration are human and if it is large enough maybe work some human payoffs to help bolster your deck like Riders of Gavony, Thalia's Lieutenant and Cavalry Pegasus (there are several more). Note that you shouldn't add so many to dilute your Samurai core and if you have a good number of fox and other samurai this may not be something worth pursuing.
This is going to be a combat centric deck, so you may find adding combat related cards and some goad cards like Bloodthirsty Blade and Martial Impetus to help do damage and remove blockers for your turn
