Fearless Liberator Discussion

Hey, good start on a low budget. The deck name gave me a laugh :)
Some cards $1-$2 or less each to consider adding:
- Dwarven Warriors
- Dwarven Nomad
- Survivors' Encampment
- Holdout Settlement
- Springleaf Drum
- Aethersphere Harvester : Vehicles have crew which is a way to tap Dwarves.
- Key to the City
- Spine of Ish Sah
- Storm-Kiln Artist : Dwarf treasure creator, in the newest set Strixhaven.
- Chaos Warp
- Quicksmith Genius
- Mobile Garrison
- Seething Song
- Rite of Flame
- Mana Geyser
- Faithless Looting
- Thrill of Possibility
Having ways to tap Dwarves without attacking especially Magada is helpful to create treasures. Springleaf Drum , Survivors' Encampment , Holdout Settlement are ways to tap Magada to make mana. Dwarven Warriors and Dwarven Nomad can make Magada unblockable as long as she has only 2 power. Key to the City can make any creature unblockable such as Fearless Liberator .
Aethersphere Harvester is a Vehicle and Vehicles have an ability called crew which lets you tap any number of creatures you control with power equal to or more than the crew number. You can crew any number of times even if the Vehicle is already a creature with as many creatures as you want. Aethersphere with crew 1 means any creature can crew; each Dwarf you control can create a treasure.
Good luck with your deck.

I don't think there's many scenarios, if any, where you'll be happy to play a 2/1 for 2 to eventually get a 2/1 for 3 if you attack. You should remove all 4 Fearless Liberator and instead add 4 Kargan Intimidator . It's easy to miss, but he can target your own humans (or himself) to make them "cowards" (and no longer human) to trigger Winota, Joiner of Forces .
Usually decks that run Winota, Joiner of Forces don't play planeswalker because more often than not you'll see them when you miss with Winota, Joiner of Forces 's trigger and then they'll spend the rest of the game under the library. Your high cost cards should normally be cards that she can cheat into play. Either way, Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast won't achieve much either because you have a wide variety of different CMC creatures to hit with him, he's normally played in decks with only giant creatures and token generators so he always hits good.
I wish I knew how to make good use of Victory's Envoy because she seems fun, but in reality she's a 3/3 that does nothing when she comes into play. If you're going off with Winota, Joiner of Forces hey ability probably won't even come into play, and even if it does, chances are you still would've been better off with any other big hitter instead. You would surely do much better if you just added a 2nd copy of your big legendary dudes like Kenrith, the Returned King and Haktos the Unscarred .
Btw, I'm not sure if you know but Taranika, Akroan Veteran will not trigger if she's put into play by Winota, Joiner of Forces because then she's already attacking, so she's not a great hit either. She would shine more in a deck that plays small stuff with keywords like Healer's Hawk or even Alseid of Life's Bounty .

Hello! Thank you for your advice on my budget deck. I had a few ideas that might work to help with yours as well.
I might swap out Arcane Signet for Everflowing Chalice . While Chalice doesn't get you red mana, it is a variable cost-efficient mana rock. You can burn down extra treasures to boost Chalice's multikicker to get enduring mana at a 1 for 2 ratio.
For boosting your dwarf tribal and getting more dwarves out, Brass Herald might be useful, I don't see it being as strong as Coat of Arms, but in the right situation it might compete with Obelisk of Urd.
I could also see Fearless Liberator being more useful than some of the dwarves you have already. Rimrock Knight also gets you some extra utility on a 3/1 dwarf which could be useful. Vault Robber seems ideal for Magda, as when she is out you can get two treasures on a single tap.
For draw, I think both Conqueror's Galleon Flip and Trading Post could be quite useful. Conqueror's foothold can start out as a great blocker and dwarf tapper, and can transform into ramp, looting, card draw and card return. Trading Post can get you life, blockers, draw and return artifact cards, I could see it comboing particularly well with Spine and Meteor Golem.
Lastly... I don't think this is necessarily a good board wipe, but a fun one in combination with Magda and might work pretty good with your giant dwarves would be Brawl . If nothing else you get some treasures while everyone blows up each others creatures.
