Fireflux Squad

Creature — Human Soldier

Haste

Whenever Fireflux Squad attacks, you may exile another target attacking creature you control. If you do, reveal cards from the top of your library until you reveal a creature card. Put that card onto the battlefield tapped and attacking and the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.

Hanweir Garrison  Meld and Hanweir Battlements  Meld are worth running. I see Hellrider in your maybeboard but it deserves a spot in the deck (probably in Inferno Titans place tbh). I'd also work on weeding out underperformers and getting in your Orzhov Signet and your 3 talismans. Fireflux Squad is nuts here and just exiles 2 tokens to vomit 2 actual creatures from your deck into play for free. Ogre Battledriver costs 1 more than fervor but the buff it applies buffs all your enters tapped and attacking tokens which adds up fast. Plumb the Forbidden is an excellent draw card here.

Anyways, most of these suggestions are either in my deck or in my maybeboard so feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Isshin - Army of Darkness

Oh dang, awesome suggestions. I didn't even know about Fireflux Squad. I'll look through this and see what I can add/remove. Thanks my dude.

Ok, I have a few budget friendly suggestions for you. I'll try to break it down using your custom categories.

Lands: Exotic Orchard.

Tokens: I almost suggested Captain's Claws... it probably belongs in this category. Hanweir Garrison  Meld deserves a spot though.

Disruption: Chaos Warp, Generous Gift, and Tibalt's Trickery.

Card Advantage: I'd move Emberwild Captain here (or defense) thanks to drawing off the monarch. Welcoming Vampire deserves a spot though. Subira, Tulzidi Caravanner might deserve consideration too depending on how often you end up handless.

Haste: Ogre Battledriver gives haste while giving a boost... including for all your tokens that enter tapped and attacking making them all 3/1.

Utility: Odric, Master Tactician and Gustcloak Savior both allow you to swing safely turn after turn instead of just once like the Master Warcraft. Mirror Entity is another cheap way to buff your whole team and finish games.

Mana Ramp: Talisman of Hierarchy and Talisman of Conviction deserve spots.

Attack Triggers: Signal Pest and Soltari Champion are both excellent ways to buff your entire team (including all the enters tapped and attacking stuff) by 2 power which adds up FAST. Fireflux Squad exiles tokens and digs for actual creatures off the top of your deck for free... it's pretty nuts.

I might drop some of the Samurai like these:

1x Nezumi Bladeblesser

1x Norika Yamazaki, the Poet

1x Peerless Samurai

1x Heiko Yamazaki, the General

For:

Hero of Bladehold (she is rediculous with Isshin, 4 tokens out with +2/0)

Boros Charm: protection

Fireflux Squad: pretty good with the tokens

Aerial Surveyor: Can help with ramp

Some other adds:

Sword of the Animist: ramp

Rakdos Signet, Orzhov Signet: Ramp

Phyrexian Arena: try to get this while it is a bit low for now thanks to a recent reprint

Some suggested drops:

1x The Shattered States Era: There are better cards

1x Touch the Spirit Realm: pretty good, but there are better

1x Wanderer's Intervention: both this and the below have better cards you can use: Infernal Grasp, Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Despark, Anguished Unmaking, Bedevil, Baleful Mastery, Hero's Downfall, Dreadbore, Damn, Winds of Abandon

1x You Are Already Dead

1x Debt to the Kami

1x Deflecting Palm

1x Disenchant

1x Sword of Hours: there are better cards

1 Ecologist's Terrarium: there are better cards

It is looking good!!

@Last_Laugh:

Thanks for the suggestions. As the list is, it is running fine, so I do not have too many plans to change it, not that your suggestions have no merits.

I was running Skyknight Vanguard and ever since I added that and Honored Crop-Captain along with some aggro stuff, the deck started running wonky and got stomped all over. I dropped those out recently and added some more midrange stuff and the deck has been running much better.

Breena, the Demagogue: unless I am misunderstanding this card, it just doesn't seem too great to me. I mean, yes, the politics aspect helps a lot, but I am not a fan of my opponents drawing as well. Tymna the Weaver: will definitely be an add if I feel the list is running slow and not drawing enough. I have been going back and forth on adding her, I just cannot fit her in the current list. There is some draw for now: Kaya, Ghost Assassin, Phyrexian Arena, Bolas's Citadel, Skullclamp, Chief Jim Hopper, Esper Sentinel, and sort of Land Tax

Ramp: It seems to be fine to me as is, at least with how the deck plays. I have only tested the current list a couple of times and only 1 on 1 so I will see if more ramp is needed. 9 mana rocks seems a bit hefty at times. I will note I am running some treasure token producers and may add back in Smothering Tithe, I dropped it to test Unquenchable Fury as Tithe didn't feel too necessary at times. Aerial Surveyor also ramps pretty well and Land Tax helps with hitting the land drops.

Protection: Iroas, God of Victory Serves as Dolmen Gate while giving them menace and acts as a 7/4 beater. Teferi's Protection may go back in, I just dropped it but we will see. I guess in working on my protection I was more concerned with counterspells and certain blue board wipes (which is why Grand Abolisher, Deflecting Swat (lul cyclonic rift), and Defense Grid are in there) rather than worrying about other board wipes. I added Legion's Initiative as it kind of acts like Teferi's Protection in that it works a bit better to protect from exile wipes like Winds of Abandon and Farewell than some of the indestructible protection spells.

Fireflux Squad: for some stupid reason it never occurred to me to use this on the tokens. I will definitely find a spot for the squad.

I have a few suggestions for you. The main things I'm noticing is your creature's avg cmc is really high (4.45 avg), a slight lack of ramp/draw, and a lack of ways to protect your board from combat/boardwipes. You've got most of what I'm pointing out in that giant maybeboard... but what the hell.

First, creatures: Skyknight Vanguard is a cheap token producer. Soltari Champion equals +2+2 for your team w/ Isshin and Shadow means it'll survive combat. Breena, the Demagogue and Tymna the Weaver both help with card draw. I'd cut like 5-7 creatures and a few costly non-creatures that cost 5+ for these and other additions.

Ramp: Get all of your Talismans in here. Talisman of Indulgence, Talisman of Hierarchy, and Talisman of Conviction. Fellwar Stone deserves a spot too honestly.

Protection: Reconnaissance, Dolmen Gate, and Gustcloak Savior all protect during combat (the first 2 + Iroas ought to cut it but the bird is budget friendly). Boros Charm, Teferi's Protection, and Flawless Maneuver are all excellent options for boardwipe protection (I recommend at least 2 if not all 3).

Muh Favorite Attack Trigger: Fireflux Squad has been amazing. Exile 2 tokens and turn them into gas.

I can't recommend Fireflux Squad enough. Exile a token and vomit out pure gas the turn it enters thanks to haste... twice.
