Honor of the Pure Discussion

lagotripha on Rally To Me!!!

Rally the Ancestors is on-theme, while Zulaport Cutthroat / Kalastria Healer enables an aristocrats theme.

This lets you lower the overall CMC of the deck- in modern playing more creatures quickly is basically mandatory unless you are packing a lot of powerful disruption.

Skipping that, lets look at flat upgrades and options from modern. Unearth is better than raise dead. Honor of the Pure will almost always be better as another ally creature. Ordeal of Heliod is cute lifegain, but since most lifegain is intended for burn, it getting countered by a Searing Blaze hurts bad. Ondu Cleric will perform its role excellently.

Drana, Liberator of Malakir is the most efficient ally 'lord', even if they aren't a lord. Flying is super relevant too. Still, it being good makes it expensive.

Past that, naming ally for tribal lands is good. Unclaimed Territory and fixing like Beastcaller Savant gives access to the rest of the cheaper allies and will be the most efficient way to spend your budget- Jwari Shapeshifter and Oran-Rief Survivalist will go a long way to taking it from 'casual funstuff' to 'strong casual stuff'.

You're playing Leyline of Abundance with only 4 mana dorks? That feels a bit like playing Honor of the Pure in a deck with only 4 white creatures.

Regardless, I think you're onto something with the mana dorks.

You're playing a lot of really expensive lands and not that much interaction, so going for a fast mana plan would probably be a good idea. I'd keep the leyline and add a whole lot more support for it.

Darksteel Myr is to slow.. Oketra does the same for 1 Mana more, but much much better.

You need Cheap Removal like Fatal Push , Path to Exile or Dismember , so you can kill much faster.

As one Drops I recommend Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize for handdisruption or Nip Gwyllion , Serra Ascendant or Typhoid Rats for an early drop.

Honor of the Pure doesn't hit all of your creatures, Glistening Oil slows you down and Infet Odric doesn't share Infect. So therefore Raise the Alarm won't do much.

Swiftfoot Boots also slows you down. You want to play creatures to share their static abilitys. So stick with creatures, creature removal, hand disruption.

Aerial Responder is like a white Nighthawk. Crested Sunmare for indestructible and many horse tokens, since you have a havy lifelink base.

This looks really good! Your creature base is solid. But... you have no removal spells. I suggest that you cut things like Honor of the Pure because it only hits half the creatures and Raise the Alarm for things like Cast Down and Oblivion Ring for budget and better cards like Path to Exile if you felt like splurging. Concerted Effort is also worth mentioning here.

My first modern deck how Humanity works. by using raging aggro by putting stuff like Thraben Inspector , Boros Elite and buff them with stuff like Coat of Arms or Honor of the Pure could be good late-game buffs.

Removals- In this case, there will be no stuff like Path to Exile because it's kinda budget so I've have decided to put stuff like Fiend Hunter , Banisher Priest or fast spell-like Celestial Purge , Seal Away , Sunlance etc.

Mana ramp- Since this an aggro deck so it should include too much mana ramp for the help, But this case for sparing I've have decided to include Talisman of Hierarchy , Pillar of Origins for an emergency.

There's not really much in the way of mana ramp for white outside Tron lands or Mox stuff, so I do suggest running a full set of Ballyrush Banneret . Typically, as tempting as 4+ CMC mono-white spells are, they're pretty much unplayable in Modern. Try to get your AVG CMC to 2 or less and only include maybe 4 spells at 4-5CMC, and those should preferably be creatures so you can take advantage of Ballyrush.

Great all-around mono-white spells: Brave the Elements , Path to Exile , Return to the Ranks / Immortal Servitude , Oblivion Ring / Journey to Nowhere , Oppressive Rays , Honor of the Pure , Thraben Inspector , Knight of the White Orchid .

Sideboard Spells: Leyline of Sanctity , Stony Silence , Runed Halo , Disenchant , Celestial Purge , Blessed Alliance , Pithing Needle , Elixir of Immortality .

I'm not seeing any reason to run Snow-Covered Plains. On Thin Ice would take advantage of them.

I always really liked white weenie/knight tribal... i think History of Benalia might be a little slow and maybe Light from Within / Honor of the Pure might be a better way to go... Condemn is probably a better alternative to Oust but Path to Exile is probably the best choice for spot removal... Some other really good knights to consider are Fiendslayer Paladin , Hero of Bladehold , Knight of the White Orchid , Leonin Skyhunter and Mirran Crusader .

Hmmmm.....

I would dump Honor of the Pure you aren't really attacking with your 1/1's and your Squadron Hawks should be chumping. To do this effectively, use

4x Flagstones of Trokair + 4x Ghost Quarter

To be able to fetch up Mistveil Plains for infinite Squawks.

Since you're running the aggro version (Sisters vs Martyr Proc)

Ranger-Captain of Eos is better than old school Ranger.

Yes, definitely cut A Spectral if you have to. Keep 4 paths.

Good luck!
