Dryad Militant

Creature — Dryad Soldier

If an instant or sorcery would be put in a graveyard from anywhere, exile it instead.

I'm going to nitpick this and say that unless everyone at the table agrees, Dryad Militant, Figure of Destiny, and Lurrus of the Dream-Den can't fit in a mono- commander deck. Still, this is a fun idea!

So straight away I want to mention Dryad Militant Adanto Vanguard Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip and Sungold Sentinel Ambush Paratrooper and Zephyr Sentinel are not where an aggro deck wants to be... Arguably depending on what your creature makup looks like Thalia's Lieutenant could also have a home. Settle the Wreckage could well be something you want in your sideboard... A card like Calamity's Wake should really be Rest in Peace and Yotian Tactician should probably be Wedding Announcement  Flip

I'd suggest you take some inspiration from https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/pioneer-mono-white-humans#paper

A few notes as a former death and taxes player. (Mono white and was building towards eldrazi taxes.)

Flagstone is useful 1 in 10 games. I think it would be better to play another Eiganjo, Seat of the Empire that is practically a spell when needed.

I'm vaguely interested in the touch of the spirit realm and am wondering how it performs. Could blink a living weapon like Batterskull for a new token if the token dies while being removal when needed. Neat synergies with it.

Your grave hate misses Living End decks. Maybe going 4 silent clearing and 4 of the black leyline in your sideboard will fix that. Also good against Murktide Regent

Citywide Bust I'm not up to date on the meta just what i see on youtube but thus does seem good at a glance. I've quit modern but it kills alot of important cards rolling around. Interesting and good?

Cards I ran that may be worthwhile. But probably not.

Eldrazi Displacer blink too slow atm

Selfless Spirit protection

Path to Exile Removal replaced by solitude I assume.

Leonin Relic-Warder artifact/enchantment hate on a aggressive body

Dryad Militant grave hate idea. Outclassed by current cards.

Dryad Militant aggressive creature prevents some grave shenanigans.

I would highly suggest looking into mono white humans. It's a modern deck that works well and will give you more ideas.

Hey thanks a lot for this deck list, I cobbled together a budget version and had a lot of fun/success with it against my friends. Can I ask why you have one copy of Experiment One though? Seems pointless to me, wouldn't something like Dryad Militant be more useful, despite the inferior scaling?

My main thought looking through this list was that it feels like you’re creating extra steps for yourself - pretty much all your “cheap cmc vehicles” don’t have any additional power over what green can provide normally in creature form, so you’re creating extra work for yourself with no real gain.

Going down a more traditional (and practical) creature route also lets you run Aspect of Hydra instead of Might of the Masses , which can net you free-wins out of nowhere

You definitely want some more 1 mana creatures -- I'd go with the playset of Dryad Militant . It's a good rate and against some decks it'll have to be killed first before they can care about your other stuff.

Scooze is grindy, so I'd go to 2 copies maindeck. It's okay as a manasink once your main aggro plan is going, but it's better in long games.

I'd honestly not bother with the Loaming Shamans, put two of the Scoozes in there and if four scoozes isn't enough grave hate, then consider adding some more.

Prowling Serpopard is okay, but I'm not sure how relevant the "can't be countered" clause is right now. We just got Counterspell though, so we'll see.

I'd definitely play four Rancor . Also, Ram Through seems pretty meh to me. I wouldn't bother with it.

Mutagenic Growth could be really powerful. At least consider it.

You need at least a copy or two of Weather the Storm in the sideboard for aggro matchups. You already have a decent matchup against things like burn or zoo, but that'll hole it all up.

If you had a LOT more 1 drops, Rhonas's Last Stand could really put in some work. I'd at least test it out after you get a few weeks of experience, maybe it'll be good.
