I played this at my shop last night with one exception. I used an extra voice and dropped one hierarch (that's all I had). I went 5-1. Not a tier 1 deck, but pretty good. The best part though was that it was a really fun deck to pilot. I think I will be playing it again this week at FNM

@turtleboy1975 - Sweet! Did you build it and just happen to stumble on mine, or did you build it based off mine? Also, keep me updated with results please. I haven't quite built the deck myself, and want to know where it's good and bad. And yeah, from goldfishing it seems really fun.

I play a lot of green so harmonize is one of my favorite cards. I am going to try to play again tonight and change one of the atarkas to a dromoka. That is only because of my local meta though. Unfortunately I never drew elspeth. Maybe tonight.
One other thing I'm thinking about is adding another smugglers copter. I seemed to always have plenty of tokens to crew them

@turtleboy1975 - yeah there's a lot of flex slots in the deck. I also am finding that you can generally crew the copter with ease, I just wanted more instants or sorceries for Young Pyromancer. And yeah for me Atarka's Command feels like its a win-more card. Like it's only good if you're already ahead.
This deck still requires a lot of work, I can't wait till I have it in paper so I can test it more effectively.

I love Mentor lists that are unique like this. +1 from me,

Cool. I had this idea a while back when Probe was still legal (rip). Never really thought about it since. Looks like a lot of fun to play. One thing though, wouldn't Selesnya Charm be waaaay better than call of the conclave? I get that a 3/3 for 2 on a sorcery is good, but I feel like the versatility that Selesnya Charm could provide is way higher. The token it makes it a little weaker yes, but having vigilance sems pretty great. It also clears out problematic creatures like Goyf or even something like Platinum Emperion. The pump and trample seems pretty relevant too when you're trying to squeeze in final points of damage. The real kicker that I think makes it way better though is the fact that it's an instant, not a sorcery.

@Durkle - Although Selesnya Charm is versatile, the other modes are generally relevant in the deck. As our plan is to go wide, the +2/+2 and trample isn't going to be great often. The exile ability is so narrow that Path to Exile is just way superior. And getting a 2/2 instead of a 3/3 is pretty relevant in modern. A 3/3 blocks way better. The only reason I could see to make the change would be to bluff tricks, which isn't all that necessary.
Personally, I'll stick with my 3/3 for two. If you end up building the deck, please try it out and let me know how it works though.

I'm inclined to agree with the Charm comment. one removal spell is definitely not enough in a format with Goyf/Death Shadow in it.

What about Boros Charm as another way to protect your creatures from sweepers?

I agree that this doesn't need Tarmogoyf to work but I think Tarm really compliments Mentor and Pyromancer. You have a go tall guy in Tarm and go wide in the token generators and just about any non-land, non-creature turns both on. I like how Mentor and Tarm compliment each other and I'm interested in exploring it further. I do like what you have here. Super sweet.
