In honor of the 243rd birthday of this great nation, I am going to build a Janky America deck. Hit me with the most american cards you can think of!

inb4 Invoke Prejudice . It will be in the sideboard because I feel it has no place in america any longer, but it does unfortunately very much fit the theme historically

Not the most inspiring of american cards, but it is almost too real to not put in.

Narset, Enlightened Master - A light alter coloring her robe teal and adding the statue of liberty head spikes is AMAZING! Do it with a pen and the orange that shows through is the PERFECT oxidized copper effect.

Zedruu the Greathearted , for putting our nose in other countries, profiting off our incursion while simultaneously ending up making things worse for them.

GhostChieftain - That is a rich statement... There is no longer prejudice in america anymore... I am baffled

Dylan, you misunderstand. I feel like it has no place. That does not mean that there are not those that stand by it unfortunately. People can win elections based on the prejudice of others, but I adamantly disagree with it.

Enslave would have the same place as Invoke Prejudice as something that is part of our tumultous history, but as far as this deck goes I am going to stick to red, white, and blue cards.

Prosperity and Liberate came to mind as American buzzwords that are also cards.

Ornithopter because of our constant drone usage, Bribery cause of corporate bailouts and how our politics work, City in a Bottle to describe our policy towards the middle East for the past 20 years.

If I remember the story right, Konda, Lord of Eiganjo was just trying to make Kamigawa great again.

Gideon Jura and Jace, the Mind Sculptor , one fought till he found a cause, then fought for that cause hard, he protects, avenges those who would attack you, and when those are not needed he'll go fighting for that oil. Jace on the other hand just stands for how badass america is, while also being thematic to how america meddles in other nation's affairs and it's own to attempt to be on top in the end, lore wise jace also was essentially a walking constitution until an act of godly terrorism drove them to jesusify a brainy dragon.

GhostChieftain,
Not sure if you're going for a cynical or an aspirational approach.

If the former: Border Guard , Soldier of the Pantheon , Unquestioned Authority , Tragic Arrogance , Gauntlet of Power , Warmonger's Chariot , Eternal Dominion , Scorched Earth , and Disdainful Stroke . And maybe some of the 'each player votes' cards like Coercive Portal and Ballot Broker .

If the later, I'll have to ponder some more ... Avacyn, Angel of Hope is the only one that comes immediately to mind.
