Recently made some upgrades to the deck. Looking for some not too expensive upgrades i could possibly add to the deck. Specifically looking for help to improve the mana base, mostly with ratios and such. Thanks!

Check out my deck! Modern Mardu Tokens!! (HELP WANTED!!). I love modern tokens, especially Mardu! Some cards you will want to consider are Spectral Procession, Gather the Townsfolk, Dragon Fodder, and Hordeling Outburst. Hero of Bladehold can also be good, but Butcher of the Horde isn't worth it's CMC in a tokens deck. In terms of mana base, you can see from my deck that I also have problems with it. Can't help you there, sorry! Anyway +1 from me! #LongLiveModernTokens

Hey, thanks for the comment! I also love tokens, I actually have an abzan tokens list too. The cards you mentioned are great, and I was looking at them when i was building the deck, but had problems with most of them. Spectral Procession can just be hard mana wise, i dont think the deck will be able to get 3 white on turn 3 enough to justify it, Dragon's Fodder and Gather the Townsfolk are both good, but sorcery speed hurts them a bit for me. Hordeling Outburst is a fun card too but has a bit of a similar problem to Spectral Procession. I also decided to cut those cards to go a bit more of a controlling route, with more disruption and removal, which combos well with the Young Pyromancer. Butcher of the Horde probably isnt the strongest card for sure, but him and Rakshasa Gravecaller are just pet cards of mine that i really wanted to put into a deck so thats why they are in there.
Hero of Bladehold is an amazing card for sure. I run 2 in my abzan list, which is a deck I really love to play, and she has been super powerful there.Thanks for the tips! Very much appreciated, I'll definitely check out your deck and see if I can help you out at all!

Always happy to see new token brews! Though I am faithful to my tried and true BW Tokens, I would be happy to help however I can. The first thing that I would focus on is your land base, because as I am sure you are already aware, every great deck starts with a great land base. I know you're looking for more budget friendly options, so Marsh Flats may not be ideal. However, Bloodstained Mire isn't too expensive as of now. Same with Godless Shrine and Sacred Foundry. Since you are playing a 3 color deck, you shouldn't need to buy a playset of any of these lands. Blackcleave Cliffs would also be a notable inclusion. As to what to replace with these, I personally think a playset of both Isolated Chapel and Clifftop Retreat is a bit much.

As far as the rest of your cards go, I would replace Goblin Rabblemaster with Monastery Mentor and consider replacing Rakshasa Gravecaller with Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet. Since many of your creatures provide tokens, I would also contemplate replacing the Raise the Alarm and Secure the Wastes with more reactive spells like Lightning Helix and Dreadbore. If you do decide to go this route, I would take out Intangible Virtue, as it may wind up being a dead card since Mardu Tokens have a lot more creatures than BW Tokens do. Lastly, whatever you decide to do, I advise you to try and find space for a playset of Path to Exile, as the card goes a long way. Hope I was able to help, feel free to look at my BW Tokens list if it has a chance of helping at all, and if I can help you out with anything else please feel free to ask!

Hey guys! Thanks for the comments. Fatal Push is definitely coming in, its just a matter of me taking the time to pick them up, and decide how many should be in there.

And ZackBinks Thanks for the tips on the mana base, i did make some upgrades and your comment helped out a lot! And as for Monastery Mentor and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet i have my eyes on both those cards, the only problem is budget right now, but they are definitely going in once i can get my hands on some. All your recommendation are super helpful, and im probably going to end up using most of them in some form or another, thanks for the tips!
