Westvale Abbey and tokens




Hey just seeing what i can do with the westvale abbey and how well it would work, tipps on how to get it transformed earlier and getting the game closed out would be awsome! :) since i have a limited budget im trying to keep 3$+ cards as low as possible. How is the powerlevel of this deck? Im not familliar with modern

If I understand you correctly your tactics is to swarm the battlefield with creatures and to transform Westvale Abbey  Flip as soon as possible. Well, in this case you need to change your arsenal. Forget about counters. Try to concentrate on tokens and token generators. Here are some examples: creatures - Precinct Captain, Attended Knight, Knight-Captain of Eos or Captain of the Watch, instants - Raise the Alarm, sorceries - Martial Coup, planeswalkers (why not?) - Garruk Relentless  Flip and Elspeth, Sun's Champion. Parallel Lives and Second Harvest are strongly recommended to double your tokens. Mentor of the Meek will be your draw engine. Good luck and enjoy the game!

I would also recommend to look at Return to Ravnica block. Especially the cards with Populate: Wake the Reflections, Druid's Deliverance, Rootborn Defenses and Sundering Growth.

isnt it kind of not worth to populate these weak 1/1 tokens?

Some nice token producers include: Luminarch Ascension and Ant Queen or Sigarda, Heron's Grace for the top of your manacurve.

You could use some sac outlets to take extra advantage from the exess of tokens you might have: Evolutionary Leap and Skullclamp to sac the tokens and dig deeper (skullclamp is not legal in modern, so it depends what limits you and your playgroup play with).

Beastmaster Ascension can turn your creatures into very scary creatures fast in a token deck.

Good luck anyway!

Secure the Wastes and I would add some space somewhere for mana dorks as well, like, Birds of Paradise and Llanowar Elves, oh and I would also throw in a Gavony Township
