Hi Shayda!!!

Dude those dragons are doing so well (when no one wipes them)!

Did you want a similar deck? 'Cuz that's what you've got here... but I think you should lean into go-wide-aggro > midrange and play more 1-2 cmc creatures and move all your ramp to 2 (Rampant Growth, signets, etc).

I'd also recommend Golgari Charm, Boros Charm, and Heroic Intervention.

Tribal decks have so much flavor! Hope this helps, maybe we'll see it next weekend? :o

Mardu Hateblade is really bad. Also you should add some Aether Vials if you can afford it.

Hey Geomonbla.

As suggestions, I think that you may do this changes:

With this changes your deck can be more aggresive, and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is good to avoid annoning removals on the firsts turns. And if your budget allows it, you can replace the taplands by some fastlands, shocklands, fetchlands and more Cavern of Souls.

Greets, TheSimikBOat :]

I'm also in favor of dropping Mardu Hateblade for another copy of Champion of the Parish. Did you mean Angelic Overseer instead of Angelic Skirmisher? The skirmisher's not bad, but at 6 mana and not a human, it just doesn't play well here.

If your budget allows it, swapping your comes-into-play-tapped lands for Fetchlands would be a great upgrade. If you're looking for +1/+1 counters and returning small creatures to the battlefield, then I"d recommend Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants over Liliana in the planeswalker slot.

Glad some of my suggestions made sense. I looked, and found there are 12 W or B Human creatures in Modern with Deathtouch. Seems like it would be useful with First Strike, though it might be over-reaching. Mardu Hateblade seems worth possible consideration. Good luck!!

I came across Bloodsoaked Champion during my research for this deck and I never thought about using him as fodder for Butcher of the Horde which is a good idea, thanks for the suggestion. I threw Mardu Hateblade in there because he's a cheap death touch defender/attacker.

Have you thought about Bloodsoaked Champion instead of Mardu Hateblade? It's recurring fodder for the butcher.

Oh, I'm aware that would be ideal. The problem is that would either involve cutting a lot of one-drops for two-drops and raising the curve, really slowing down the deck, which is fine for Merfolk where all it's two-drops are insane, but less here; or it would involve trading powerful one drops for ones that don't even have two-power, as I'm running all the decent one-drop warriors already. I did consider cutting perhaps Boros Elite out of the deck, but then I realized that even though it doesn't benefit from Chief of the Edge, it generally has 3 power anyway, higher than something like Mardu Hateblade would have even with the Chief out. Regardless, thanks much for the feedback!
