BW Delirium Crier here's my first attempt at something original!

My goal is to build a grindy midrange that attacks our opponents hand (while also discarding cards that we can then later use).

I really like Icatian Crier , I think that there is a deck to be built around it. Yall helped me in the past so I would love your input on this rough start! thanks

Oh? Then if you want to make it a life deck, I'd encourage you to take a look at Karlov of the Pings. It's a life gain deck of mine, has a lot of great stuff. However it should be noted that to truly break Krav's ability there should be some token producers too.

Benevolent Offering can win you some friends on the table. Brimaz, King of Oreskos is a powerhouse. Captain's Claws can be equipped to Regna. Cenn's Enlistment can get rid of garbage lands. Doomed Traveler is a generally great card. Entreat the Angels is awesome. Ghoulcaller Gisa is oddly both a sac outlet AND token producer. Hero of Bladehold is a legend. Hidden Stockpile is honestly pretty good. Hoofprints of the Stag and Krav work great together. Hunted Witness is a slightly worse Doomed Traveler, Icatian Crier is a great way to pitch lands. Legion's Landing  Flip is a nice one-drop and a permanent source in the late game. Leonin Warleader is nice. Lingering Souls is a classic. Militia's Pride, along with all these other cards, makes me wonder if attack-based tokens is a viable modern strategy. Mobilization is great if the game gets stagnant. Monastery Mentor is soooo good. Necromancer's Covenant is insane against aristocrats. Ogre Slumlord is a great rattlesnake and honestly the freaking best. Ophiomancer isn't quite as good, but still nice. Patrol Signaler- again with the attackers! Pawn of Ulamog could also be a great mana source, in the same vein as Sifter of Skulls. Promise of Bunrei seems really good. Quest for the Gravelord is a good thicc boi. Raise the Alarm is actually pretty underrated. Regal Bloodlord is great here. Sacred Mesa is great, and very repeatable. Smothering Abomination would be devastating here. Sengir Autocrat is 4 sac targets. Skirsdag High Priest can make some thicc bois. Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Sorin, Grim Nemesis are both perfect for this deck. Twilight Drover is also freaking amazing. Wingmate Roc is, once again, practically designed to be played here!

Heya Foxy!

Based on what I've seen, I'd recommend cutting:

Dusk : This kills 48% of the creatures in your own deck.

Battlegrace Angel : with all your tokens and other angels, you'll rarely have anyone attacking alone.

Confessor : in a lot of cases, this guy won't do much.

Dawn Gryff

Geist of the Lonely Vigil

Ghost Warden/Angelic Page/Anointer of Champions : ditch 2, keep 1. they all do pretty much the same thing. Honestly, I'd axe all 3. There's cooler things you can put in their place.

Graceblade Artisan : not enough auras to make this dude worth it

Guardian of Pilgrims

Herald of Dromoka : there's only two warriors in the deck, so he doesnt have much combo potential

Moorland Drifter

Spectral Rider

Sublime Archangel

Territorial Roc

Weathered Wayfarer

Things I'd suggest adding:

Icatian Crier

Champion of the Parish

Elite Inquisitor

Benalish Marshal

Glorious Anthem

Commander's Authority

Seraph Sanctuary

Thraben Doomsayer

Mask of Avacyn

Ajani's Mantra

Sunbond

Always Watching

Intangible Virtue

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite

Unruly Mob

Crusader of Odric

Serra Avatar

Spear of Heliod

Ajani Goldmane

If you want more suggestions, lemme know and I can provide them. IF you need to trim down more creatures, try looking for things that are outside the theme of your deck. For example, it seems your focus is many small white creatures, life gain, big flyers/angels, and +1/+1 counters, so it would make sense to start trimming down by removing things that don't fit with that theme.

Good luck and happy decking! -Toothy

Thanks for upvoting my deck xD but would you be opposed to spellshaper tribal, they are the coolest tribe! They turn your hand into one card!

Here are some of the Modern legal ones:

Llanowar Mentor (Llanowar Elves)

Jaya Ballard, TASK MASTER

Jolrael, Empress of Beasts (Use Anger of the Gods to blow up all of their lands!)

Sparkspitter (Spark Elemental)

Goldmeadow Lookout (Goldmeadow Harrier)

Icatian Crier (Raise the Alarm)

Dreamscape Artist (Harrow)


The best one though:

Mageta the Lion (Wrath of God)

Best non-legendary: Overtaker

Swap out your Light of Sanction for Mark of Asylum. It'll protect your creatures a little better, I think, since the opponent wouldn't be able to Lightning Bolt them away either.

Perhaps a playset of Icatian Crier or something like that, so you can throw out any dead cards.

Shane Oh, no problem. Pauper and Peasant are really similar. A small number of uncommons are allowed in Peasant but not Pauper. As far as your other suggestions, I had considered Deadly Grub and Beetleback Chief previously and determined that their CMC was too high for their intended purpose.

Deadly Grub would be used as sacrifice fodder or free blocks so he would be going away rather quickly. The 6/1 shroud that it leaves behind is definitely not something to be laughed at, but I felt like Dragon Egg (which is the card that takes the grub's spot) was more useful #1. because it can block small threats, and #2. it creates a flier that guarantees a higher chance at getting in damage. But he can definitely contend for that spot depending on whether your meta is flier-heavy or not.

Beetleback Chief is essentially 3 triggers for 4 mana in this deck. and yes, one of them is a 2/2 body, which is nice. The tokens are created on entering the battlefield, it allows Undying Evil to do some serious work as well, but I think it just comes down to the mana cost at 4 total with double red.

As for Empty the Warrens and Captain's Call, it's the same kind of deal. Empty the Warrens is at best, in this deck, 4 tokens for 4 mana at sorcery speed. I very rarely will have the opportunity late-game to take advantage of storm. Captain's Call just seems underwhelming to me. I think that if you want a heavy hitting token maker like that, you'd want to go with something like Battle Screech or Triplicate Spirits. They have similar CMCs due to Triplicate Spirits' ability, and they have the possibility of creating many more tokens because of flashback, or because of convoke allowing you to cast Triplicate Spirits fairly early. Oh, and they're fliers too so that might come in handy, although it is meta dependent.

Icatian Crier didn't work for me for similar reasons. This deck is meant to take over the game around turn 5 or 6, so even if you were able to get her down on turn 3 or 4, you could only probably use the ability once or twice at best. I tend to find myself low on cards in the late game, and finding one to discard might become a problem. Perhaps if you had more card draw in your deck such as Tormenting Voice, she could work for you. Or if you planned to bring the deck into the late game, you could include cards like Terminate and Cenn's Enlistment. Thraben Standard Bearer is a good card to compare to as well.

Thanks for taking time to help with some suggestions!
