Prison decks are definitely played in Modern. I suggest you edit your description to say "modern" in every instance you wrote "standard" - they are not the same thing. Below are some spells that fit the theme. There are obviously many others. I suggest you try a deck search here on TappedOut for Modern Prison decks (use Advanced Search function)

Some spells to consider:

Removal: Oppressive Rays, Journey to Nowhere, Cast Out, Seal Away

Wincons: Starfield of Nyx

Creatures: Tragic Poet, Mesa Enchantress,

Lands: Scavenger Grounds

Other spells: Authority of the Consuls, Personal Sanctuary, Myth Realized, Nevermore

This is just my two cents, but it feels like Tiana, Ship's Caretaker and Tragic Poet feel a bit weak here, as they will not have a ton of targets. I would include something that has token production instead.

DarthVirulence on Artifact Midrange (POST ROTATION READY) V.2

1) Have you considered Treasure Map  Flip? It pairs with Phylactery Lich in a frightening way when the map becomes a land (suck it, Abrade! Albeit that is a moderately priced card so maybe not for budget.

2) Any suggestions for card draw? Maybe splash in white or run some Anticipate? The deck is very similar to one I ran for a bit and the biggest issue Id run into is no card draw - especially if I didn’t get a Sai, Master Thopterist in play.

3) Have you considered splashing in White? Three colors gets janky but Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle and even Tragic Poet can do wonders for decks that use Artifacts and Sagas together. It can also get your Phylactery Lich back every time you play a historic spell which is most of the Deck!

Just my thoughts :)

@liljramos88 I don't know if Merfolk Branchwalker fits the theme of the deck enough, I think Thorn Lieutenant is straight up better and I can't find room for him either. Naya is definitely an interesting suggestion, but I think if I were to add another colour it would be blue, and try to fit in Teferi, Hero of Dominaria and Search for Azcanta  Flip. Your deck looks super unique, I like it!

@Kizmetto I think I might agree with you on Llanowar Elves, Blossoming Defense is definitely worth considering, though its a bit of a dead draw if we have our Vine Mare already set up

@GarrettTheGreat Unbridled Growth is one I've been seriously considering, and it's been suggested a few times now, so I might have to test with it. Thanks!

@multimedia Cartouche of Strength is a card I had in the deck in early iterations, but I don't feel like it's impactful enough to cost 3 mana, doesnt give any abilities to our horse. Tragic Poet could possibly work, but I still feel like its a little jank, especially since some of our auras can already be brought back. Conviction is a good suggestion, but again I like that all of our auras give us abilities, so I'm not sure I could find a slot for it. Thanks for the comment :)

Hey, nice to see a new concept for a deck in Standard.

Until rotation Cartouche of Strength is a pretty powerful aura with Vine. For three mana killing an opponent's creature giving Vine 4 toughness and trample. Benefaction of Rhonas is a draw spell that can potentially find both Enchanter and an enchantment putting both into your hand. Tragic Poet can be included to get back a discarded to destroyed enchantment. Conviction can be bounced back to your hand to be cast again this can be a draw engine with Enchanter.

Good luck with your deck.

You have a LOT of copies of your legendaries. I wouldn't recommend that. 2 at most for each, especially because all of your creatures aside from Vona can be brought back with a bishop of rebirth. I'd also include some other kind of sacrifice outlet that you could find useful. As of now, Bontu is your only one. Vicious Offering is a super dope removal spell, you can sacrifice a creature to give a creature -5/-5.

If you use Tragic Poet in conjunction with Compulsory Rest then you have a reusable enchantment engine. Costly Plunder Gives you very good draw.

You COULD run History of Benalia, but in decks like these I typically prefer Rite of Belzenlok, because the final counter gives you a 6/6 sac outlet. And it's much cheaper ;).

Torgaar, Famine Incarnate is also a really sweet card to use.

The overall base of the deck is solid, however you should be cutting some of the random 1-ofs if you get the chance. Tragic Poet, Serra Disciple and Tiana, Ship's Caretaker aren't really the best cards for the deck. I would reccommend running 4x Dauntless Bodyguard, 3-4x Cartouche of Zeal and potentially making room for 2-3x Sheltering Light so that you can protect against removal when playing your auras.

Hobbez9186 on Midnight Isolation

Got some games in with this tonight and Tragic Poet did some work with Cast Out that was interesting. Had double Poets down and was able to cycle, activate Faith, draw, sacrifice, return Cast Out, cycle, activate Faith, draw, sacrifice, return Cast Out, cycle, activate Faith, and then discard to hand size thanks to Midnight Oil and activate Faith a few more times all with just six mana to drain out a win (started with just land and Cast Out in hand and converted it into three new cards and then discard down to zero because of Oil with 0 counters on it at the end step for a total of 6 Faith activations to drain 12 life). Kambal, Consul of Allocation was an All-star as well buying all the time in the world to get set up. The abundance of Isolation effects to control the other side of the board worked exactly as planned, and Kambal did his thing to make digging, countering, and setting up combos very costly for the opposing life total. I love this :)
