There's 2 major areas for this deck that need some tlc... evasion and card draw.

Evasion: Champion of Lambholt, Spirit en-Dal, Spirit Mantle, Soltari Visionary, Odric, Master Tactician, Subira, Tulzidi Caravanner, Bedlam, and Loyal Apprentice are all good options.

Draw: Welcoming Vampire, Beast Whisperer, Esper Sentinel, Jared Carthalion, True Heir, Ohran Frostfang, Selvala, Explorer Returned, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, and Rites of Flourishing all deserve spots. Right now you only have Toski and Guardian Project that I see for card draw.

First off, love the concept as I have something played with a similar deck but it has diverged a lot from a its original lifegain strategy.

A few things I could suggest with my experience with mono-decks and cats are the following:

  1. Lands - Maybe add Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx as your devotion to white is going to be pretty high. Another possibility would be Extraplanar Lens as you will likely have a lot of basic plains and that is a good way to increase your mana pool in your situation. Radiant Fountain would be a great replacement for Kabira Crossroads as it does not enter tapped and you should have plenty of other ways of getting mana.

  2. The presence of Emerge Unscathed and Brave the Elements seems odd considering how much better Brave the Elements is.

  3. Ajani's Welcome would fit in nicely considering your heavy focus on gaining life to pump creatures or win.

  4. I would recommend dropping Spirit Mantle for more removal spells. it just seems pretty lackluster.

The last thing I would mention is that protection from a color is handy at times but it does not provide 100% protection. Board wipe spells such as Damnation or similar spells that do not have any particular target ignore protection. With that said, protection still does have its benefits but just keep in mind it is not foolproof.

Ok, better late than never...

Spirit Mantle is a great for evasion. Crystal Vein is a nice piece of ramp depending on how glass-canon this deck is. Pentad Prism is the only 2 drop mana rock that'll net you +2 colored mana (albeit once). Sword of Feast and Famine + Aggravated Assault equals infinite combat steps. Divine Reckoning and Razia's Purification are a pair of boardwipes that'll leave Narset untouched.

Loyal Apprentice is a stud here. Spirit Mantle/Spirit en-Dal are great ways to get any creature into the redzone. Aura Shards is amazing and at $5-6 it's the most reasonable price you'll find it for.

I also suggest more card draw options like Rites of Flourishing, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Jared Carthalion, True Heir, Selvala, Explorer Returned, Runic Armasaur, Subira, Tulzidi Caravanner, and Welcoming Vampire... they're all good budget options. Toski, Bearer of Secrets and Ohran Frostfang are at the top end of your budget but are worth their weight in gold here.

Feel free to check out my list for more ideas. It's definitely not budget overall but it has plenty of stuff under 10 bucks. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Marisi the Pimp - (Combat) Trickin' Hoes

Since you aren't running a single creature, Proteus Staff will quite literally let you stack your entire deck in the order you choose.

Replace Fervor with Need for Speed and/or Mass Hysteria. Ashling's Prerogative is another option (I ran all 3 and Hall of the Bandit Lord)

Aqueous Form/Spirit Mantle are great to make Narset evasive and in the case of Aqueous, lets you dig 5 deep with Narset.

Long-Term Plans, Mystical Tutor, Scroll Rack, and Brainstorm are all worth it for the ability to manipulate your topdeck for Narset.

I'd also suggest replacing Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus, and Chromatic Lantern. A good rule of thumb in Narset is 2 drop or less mana rocks (3 drop is ok if it adds more than 1 mana like Basalt Monolith, Coalition Relic, or Worn Powerstone). I'd personally recommend Talisman of Creativity, Talisman of Conviction, and Talisman of Progress.

legendofa on TheWalkingDead - Horde Magic

I don't know anything about the source material, so these suggestions are more tactical than thematic.

Glenn is the only source of among the survivors. Misstep locks down the existing Horde for a turn, and a good selection of counterspells will take the edge off the Horde's nontoken effects. I see Glenn being the support/control. Cards like Black Ward and Spirit Mantle give protection from the Horde, and Absolute Grace gives everything protection from black. Angel of Glory's Rise can wipe the Horde, but see my thoughts on Michonne below.

Negan wants sacrifices. I assume the Horde will choose to sacrifice a generic token when possible, so Ashling, the Extinguisher should be used to target the important stuff. Most mass sacrifices affect everyone equally, so cards like Slaughter the Strong and Tragic Arrogance have to be used very carefully, since Negan only triggers on an opponent's sacrifice, and the Horde can rebuild faster than the survivors. Archfiend of Depravity might be one of the best cards here, as long as you have a method for the Horde making decisions.

Michonne's equip clause doesn't mean much when the opponent doesn't use blockers, so a Zombie tribal focus might work. It's a little odd to use one Zombie army against another, but that's what I see here. Use lots of Zombies, lots of buffs, and try to beat the Horde at its own game.

Daryl might be fun to use with Enrage effects. I'm seeing big mana and big creatures. Rites of Flourishing, Zhur-Taa Ancient, and similar effects become a lot less symmetrical in a 4-on-1 match. I'm a little leery of Pyroclasm and friends, for the same reason as mass sacrifice for Negan: the Horde can rebuild from a boardwipe a lot faster than the survivors.

For the Horde itself, what colors and effects did you want?

It looks pretty solid all in all, and the only thing that jumped out at me was Blade of Selves Because why not goad everyone at everyone when you can? It might not be super budget anymore, but it seems like it goes with the deck so well.

Oh, and there are a few other Pacifism type effects that have been printed in recent sets that are usually slight upgrades. Trapped in the Tower Bound in Gold Skyclave Apparition Fiend Hunter or there are the classic removal stuff like Darksteel Mutation or Generous Gift

Also, Unquestioned Authority if you want another Spirit Mantle effect.

Just a few minor tweaks because really, it looks quite nailed down. How much removal does Marisi draw? I feel like all of my commander decks would try to remove him as fast as I possibly could :) That might be the mark of a pretty sweet deck.

Some suggestions based on enchantments I run in my Selesnya enchantment deck:

Ancestral Mask

Felidar Umbra

Hum of the Radix (slows down artifact decks)

Kithkin Armor

Spirit Mantle

Sterling Grove (protects your enchantments, and also works as a tutor)

Eidolon of Blossoms

Also, Fortified Village is really cheap right now and so is Sungrass Prairie
