Secluded Steppe Discussion

Just as a starting point I would definitely run some more mana rocks, especially Sol Ring. It's almost always worth the $2-3. Also if you're willing to drop $4-5 Arcane Signet is worth it as well. You have a good amount of lands for what you're trying to do, but I would replace Mosswort Bridge and Secluded Steppe with basic lands. I think it'd be better to just have basics that come in untapped. I would also replace Naya Panorama with Myriad Landscape if you want a good budget fetch that gives you more value, and finally if you can swing it, I'd swap out either Blossoming Sands or Graypelt Refuge with a Sunpetal Grove for better value, and the other you could take out for Canopy Vista or just another basic. Basics aren't bad.
Also with all the 1/1's you're making, Skullclamp would give you a lot of value.
Those are just a few changes I'd make. Good deck. Hope this helps. (:

Solid build! +1
I believe there's some room for improvement in the land base. You could easily get away with swapping 4x plains for any combination of Forbidding Watchtower and Secluded Steppe, which are both budget cards. Cycle lands help with land flood and manlands provide extra attackers

Hey man I think you have too many fetches and not enough targets, as well you might want to look at the lands that etb tapped like Secluded Steppe, Kaalia is a fast deck I try for turn 1 land, turn 2 land and ramp, turn 3 land and Kaalia, turn 4 attack. if you want to compare to my deck deck https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/strike-first-strike-hard-no-mercy-1/. I do like you choice in I do like your choice in Angels, Demons, and Dragons.

Feral Prowler over Generous Stray, even better would be Skullclamp but your deck seems to be budget. Arahbo, Roar of the World is to slow (great in commander). Skyhunter Skirmisher is almost always better than Leonin Skyhunter. Kaheera, the Orphanguard should be more than a one of in main board, also even after companion was killed as a mechanic it should still probably be run as a companion since you already meet the requirement. Guardians' Pledge is just bad, there are better versions of it.
Secluded Steppe should never be run in a 60 card non singleton format, Stirring Wildwood could be run as a two of if you really want to but I wouldn't run more than two of them. Temple of Plenty and all other temple's are to slow, just run basics or throw in the money for shocks/sac lands.
Not sure why your making a budget vintage deck, chances are whatever you want to run will be modern legal. (note Skullclamp isn't modern legal)

I’ve always loved cycling and the decks built around the mechanic. In fact, one of my favorite competitive decks of all time was built around cycling. (Of course, that was during a time where affinity had first appeared on the seen and the Gw deck was built to strictly hose those early affinity decks) have you considered Secluded Steppe Barren Moor Forgotten Cave they should all be modern legal. I would also suggest more cards that cycle for utility Djeru's Renunciation follows the game plan by being able to cycle but it’s a cheap utility card in a pinch. Astral Drift may give you a some decent utility as well. Gilded Light might be a good sideboard option. Overall a very fun looking deck!

I am trending away from global enchantments in favor of repeated life gain or creature generation in this batch of edits. I made sweeping edits in several categories:
- Defensive Auras
- Offensive Auras
- Vanilla Creatures
Swapped out generic flyers (Armored Pegasus, Concordia Pegasus, Loyal Pegasus, Mistral Charger, Stormfront Pegasus, Wingsteed Rider) for ones with more ability or utility (Pegasus Charger, Plated Pegasus, Eiganjo Free-Riders).
- Defense and Removal
- Life Gain
Replaced 3 less efficient or reliable life gain sources (Soldier of the Pantheon, Righteous Cause, Honden of Cleansing Fire) with better ones (Soul's Attendant, Auriok Champion, Pious Evangel / Wayward Disciple, Linden, the Steadfast Queen, Answered Prayers).

I would think about including as many Soul Sisters as possible: Anointer Priest, Soul Warden, Impassioned Orator, Soul's Attendant, Suture Priest and maybe Answered Prayers. These will gain you a lot of time. There is also lump life gain like Conclave Phalanx and Dwarven Priest that work very well with all your blink effects. Peach Garden Oath is also a pretty amazing common. These creatures could easily replace many of your filler creatures, like Ancestral Statue (doesn't provide enough advantage for the cost), Aven Skirmisher, Devoted Hero, Kor Outfitter, Leonin Elder, Savannah Lions and Segovian Angel.
In your lands, you could be running a lot more non-basics to help you out. All the cycling lands, Secluded Steppe, Drifting Meadow and Desert of the True, are great options for filtering through your deck. Other good options are Idyllic Grange, Kabira Crossroads, Radiant Fountain, Remote Farm and Sejiri Steppe.
I hope some of this was helpful!
