I'm currently looking at Solemnity as a build-around because I see it much the way people see God-Pharaoh's Gift, a new noncreature permanent that can generate lots of value if built with the right cards.
I do like your inclusion of Exemplar of Strength as I feel like it's a great two-drop that can also be a decent threat in the late game.
I would add in Claim / Fame as your deck has an abundance of creatures you can reanimate with it, and channeler initiates can cast the Fame half without swapping land to splash for it. I would also find a place to add in a Skysovereign, Consul Flagship or two because finding pilots should not be a problem with so many 3/4s and 4/4s costing two mana available, and it is aslo a flying creature.

Hi, thanks for your comment!
Exemplar has been doing some work for me. I truly underestimated how great that card can be. Claim / Fame is interesting, I may have to check in to that card as it does pick up half of our deck. I do have a copy of Skysovereign, Consul Flagship so I can test with that out. I wanted to use Aethersphere Harvester but dat energy counter.

Been play testing a deck very similar to this one. camarouge already commented on my page. Uncage the Menagerie has been doing some work for me. I have found that it helps fill the lack of card draw I so desperately desire. Rhonas the Indomitable has also been a great bomb for me. As for Skysovereign, Consul Flagship I really want to work it into the deck, but am finding it hard to make space.
+1 for sure!
Check out my deck if you haven't seen it yet.

It's funny you mention Rhonas the Indomitable because I was actually going to add him today anyways. I like Uncage the Menagerie, I'll have to test it out but I'm not really sure what it'll replace for now.

Vizier of Remedies works kind of like an early game Solemnity. For example: If an opponent would cast a spell this would normally trigger placing a -1/-1 counter on your Ammit Eternal. However, if Vizier of Remedies were also out on your field, you would removes a -1/-1 counter minus one. This completely negates having to place a -1/-1 counter on your Ammit Eternal. This works with the other creatures involved in the deck as well. Channeler Initiate, Exemplar of Strength, and Plague Belcher

Pretty much exactly what Brownkid09 says. I am looking to remove it for another creature however, or another spell perhaps. When Ixalan drops, Vizier of Remedies will probably be removed as the -1/-1 counter isn't such a big deal, but it does really help with Ammit Eternal.

I recently took my version of this deck to FNM this last weekend. Got just straight up killed. My meta is mostly mono red agro-decks and mardu vehicles. Perhaps if you could stabilize with cards like God-Pharaoh's Faithful or Authority of the Consuls maybe it would work better.

I love this deck so much! What would you replace to make it somewhat budget?
August 14, 2017 11:10 p.m.
Well, you can remove Fatal Push and use something like Dead Weight as that's the poor man's Fatal Push. Most of what you can remove with Push, Dead Weight can probably hit as well. You can remove Rhonas the Indomitable and Gideon of the Trials pretty easily and replace them with really anything you like that fits the scheme. I used to just run 4 copies of God-Pharaoh's Faithful in their place because you can drop your counters from Channeler Initiate or Exemplar of Strength. You can add Crocodile of the Crossing in as well.
The majority of the cost comes from Concealed Courtyard and Blooming Marsh which can be replaced with Foul Orchard or Forsaken Sanctuary if you want super budget, but they won't be anywhere near as good. Good lands are some of the first things I would recommend buying in a format, especially since these ones won't rotate until the end of 2018. Both of the lands are also used quite frequently in Modern, so they're a two for one.
You could also probably go down a few Solemnity if you wanted, but I wouldn't recommend that at all. They're pretty cheap as is.
