KBK7101 Yeah, a great card indeed, I like auras that scale up as the game progresses. Hope Against Hope does a similar job with the added bonus of giving Siona First Strike. Eidolon of Countless Battles as an aura has my preference. Thanks for viewing and commenting!

Hey, good start upgrading the precon on a budget.

28 lands is not enough land for an avg. CMC of 3.4 which is high. I recommend 36 lands and adding Knight of the White Orchid. First strike with a two drop Human is good with +2 pump from Jirina. You want to take more advantage of Jirina who's a four drop anthem effect for Humans. This means you want to consistently be able to play more impactful one drops (Champion of the Parish)/two drops (Thalia's Lieutenant)/three drops (Frontline Medic) to attack with the turn you play Jirina.

Tribal creature strategies in Commander fold to board wipes. To combat this play more repeatable instant speed indestructible protection (Etchings of the Chosen), creature recursion (Phyrexian Reclamation), reanimation (Alesha, Who Smiles at Death) and noncreature repeatable sources of Humans (Outlaws' Merriment).


Budget lands to consider adding:

Flickerform is a fun aura. It can be used to protect the enchanted creature from both boardwipes and targetted removal. It can also be used in conjuction with dudes like Heliod's Pilgrim, Totem-Guide Hartebeest, Auratouched Mage, or Boonweaver Giant to find more auras (these dudes even find flickerform int he first place, making it easy to set up an aura-tutor engine). You could even use Flickerform to set as a draw engine by flickering a creature that is enchanted with Unquestioned Authority or Sage's Reverie.

You might like these too: Flickering Ward, Kor Spiritdancer, Pariah, Darksteel Mutation, Murder Investigation, Hope Against Hope, Eidolon of Countless Battles, All That Glitters, Retether, Crystal Chimes

I know your heart might be set on Rith, but Tana, the Bloodsower and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder are great generals for this strategy. Giving Tana doublestrike while she has a Bravado effect is really powerful (her first hit makes saps, which makes her twice as big, so the second hit makes her 4x as big: exponentially increasing damage + saproling output). Here's a budget list with them if you're curious: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/wide-tall-super-budget/

These cards might catch your eye: Betrothed of Fire, Hope Against Hope, Mantle of Leadership, Fanatical Devotion, Perilous Forays, Pollenbright Wings, Storm the Citadel, Five-Alarm Fire, Keeper of Fables, Requiem Angel, Fungal Plots, Utopia Mycon, Eidolon of Countless Battles, Ivy Lane Denizen, Rapacious One, Pallid Mycoderm

Bruse & Tana are my fave partner pair! So cool to see them pop up on TO. Here's my list if you're interested: Bruse Tana Boorish Bloodsower

I see you have Betrothed of Fire in the maybes. I'd definitely mainboard that one. It's one of the best auras you can put on Tana. I also recommend these: Mantle of Leadership, Hope Against Hope, Eidolon of Countless Battles, Thallid Germinator, Goldnight Commander, Utopia Mycon, Druids' Repository, Song of Freyalise, Bear Umbra, Open the Armory, Heliod's Pilgrim, Ohran Frostfang, Hunter's Prowess, Seize the Day, Hashep Oasis, Sakura-Tribe Elder, signets + talismans (2drop ramp gets Tana out on T3. in glass cannon decks like this, doing your thing 1 turn faster makes a huge difference!)
