Town Gossipmonger Discussion

Vessel of Volatility is bad because it cost you card and doesn't affect the board state. While it is true that fast mana like Seething Song leads to degenerate strategies, Vessel of Volatility is too slow. With only 20 lands, you are going to have trouble playing any card with mana cost greater that 3. 20 Lands leads to one lander opening hands that are not keepable with your curve. Although haste is nice, I'd recommend focusing on an agro shell with cost efficient creatures such as Forerunner of Slaughter over Voldaren Duelist.
You could even try a R/W build in Standard with cost effective one drops such as Expedition Envoy, Inventor's Apprentice, Thraben Inspector, Town Gossipmonger Flip with Hanweir Garrison at the top of your curve. Maybe throw in Speedway Fanatic
If you really like Hasty stuff, the most powerful haste creatures in Standard are Dust Stalker and Fleetwheel Cruiser, and Lathnu Hellion. Reckless Bushwhacker has seen modern play in 12 whack, but is still powerful if you cast it for surge cost on turn three and have a bunch of 1 drops on board.
Finally, Reality Smasher has seen modern and legacy play. Although super strong, eldrazi haven't been seen in standard since the pain lands rotated out.

What you're trying to do here is build around Odric, Lunarch Marshal, don't do that, the guy's bad. You can either take this deck 2 different ways; A midrange big-white deck featuring Gisela, the Broken Blade, Thalia's Lancers, etc... Or a low to the ground human aggro deck.
I recommend the latter, given that you're on a budget I'll try and keep the cards I'm suggesting cheap: Run playsets of the following; Expedition Envoy, Town Gossipmonger Flip, Thraben Inspector, Toolcraft Exemplar (Not a human but has a lot of synergy with the deck), Thalia's Lieutenant, Stasis Snare, Aethersphere Harvester (I know it's expensive but the lifegain really keeps you in longer games and aggro matchups). Other non playsets; 2/3 Always Watching , 2/3 Thalia, Heretic Cathar, 1 Fleetwheel Cruiser and maybe 2 Bygone Bishop. Lands should be 21-23 Plains depending on how the curve works out, taplands when running a low to the ground deck can be damaging to the manabase.
Mono-white isn't strong currently, don't expect this deck to be god-like or tier 1 deck beatable but in my opinion it will work out a lot better than your current deck.
p.s. I'm a control player, take my suggestion with a grain of salt, just thought I'd comment on something since I never normally do.

Issues with the deck:
- Doesn't start building a board state until turn 3
- Small Creatures that develop slow, Too many 3 drops
- No finishing strategy (this does not need to be $20 cards, just consistent)
- Taxing - disrupt opponents Tempo
- Think in terms of size, cost and speed.
- Hanweir Militia Captain Flip,
- Odric, Lunarch Marshal,
- Fairgrounds Warden,
- Captain's Claws The cards are not bad, they just would all need to be in slower shells with more protection.
Suggestions based on idea of Aggro/Taxing strategy:

Does it really need to be tribal?
I mean, one of the best aggro creatures are Solemn Recruit and Aethergeode Miner. One is a constant 3/1 with evasion. The other one is 98% a 3/3 Double Strike for . Anyone of those is better than Town Gossipmonger Flip or Thraben Inspector.
Plus, you should include 4x Hope of Ghirapur. Yes, it's legendary, but it will keep your opponent removal at bay. You could play it with Restoration Specialist or other similar creature that can net you a creature/artifact form graveyard, and you are virtually immune to swipe removal (your deck's weak point)

i would suggest a few copies of either Hamlet Captain or Hanweir Militia Captain Flip, because both of them are great when going wide. hamlet captain strengthens your board and militia captain flips, gives you a big threat and keeps making new humans unless destroyed. you could also play Town Gossipmonger Flip or Expedition Envoy to have a more aggressive start.
I would also play some more removal and i'd do away with some Aethersphere Harvesters and the Acrobatic Maneuvers because they don't really bring enough impact. Also you're kinda overloaded on 3 cmc spells and i'd recommend cutting Maulfist Revolutionary as well for some cheaper humans or perhaps an Always Watching or two.
I also have one more suggestion for the sideboard. I'd recommend using 2 copies of Ulvenwald Mysteries to side in against removal-heavy decks as it gives you draw and produces humans.

Neglected Heirloom Flip is actually a solid card in the deck even when it's not flipped, so I don't think i'm removing it. I also wouldn't want to remove an equipment for a card that's only good when you've got equipments. I even like it more than Bone Saw because it helps protect my creatures from burn and helps them survive combat. However Thalia, Heretic Cathar would be an awesome addition! I've noticed her impact on the field first hand when playing R/W vehicles and she definitely would find a home here. Her first strike will also be great when combined with the equipment buffs.
about Cathar's Shield, I don't like playing that card in an aggro shell, it's too expensive to equip and wouldn't have much impact when you did. so it would only function as a way to trigger the "when you have an artifact/equipment" clauses. all the other equipments function in other ways as well so i prefer them by far. and well I've already elaborated why i prefer heirloom over bone saw. now, Captain's Claws is a great card, but for this deck it's also quite expensive, drawing two of them is already hard to curve out, drawing three of them would be disastrous for your speed. that's why intend to keep it to 3 copies so that the probability of such a thing happening is significantly lower.
Reckless Bushwhacker however is another card i like. The deck is already quite aggressive (I finish games T4 quite often) but he would fit right in finding lots of spells that would allow him to surge in. i'm not sure which place he'd take but i think i'll try him out. Since Town Gossipmonger Flip was indeed the slowest one-shot i had, i probably will replace him with 2 Thalia, Heretic Cathars and a Reckless Bushwhacker for starters :p
thank you for the suggestions :D
