Wilt-Leaf Liege Discussion

Deck looks good overall, here are some thoughts I had after reading it:
Pacifism is pretty bad, and you don't really have any aura synergies with it. Iff you really want 8 removal spells, Journey to Nowhere is just way better. I think you could probably cut down to 6 total removal spells though since you have Skyclave Apparition . You could also try running Prismatic Ending , replacing a plains with a Sacred Foundry or something like that for a third color (and maybe adding some extra fetches).
I can't help noticing that you don't have any dig like Collected Company or tutors like Chord of Calling . CoCo is might not be the best here since you only have 22 hits which is far from enough. I think Chord of Calling is worth considering, especially if you decide to go for a more toolbox-valuetown build (maybe with some Sanctifier en-Vec , Auriok Champion , and Sanctum Prelate mainboard). It's probably fine without either of those but I just wanted to throw out some ideas.
You also don't have any real turn 1 plays, since Path to Exile and Rancor don't really count. Imo you should really have at least a few, so you don't start off every game already losing tempo on the first turn. The first suggestion I have for a 1 drop is Noble Hierarch , which makes all the types of mana you need early game and has some use mid-late game with exalted. She can also make blue mana if you want to exile a 3 cmc permanent with Prismatic Ending (so the foundry is probably not needed). My other suggestion is Esper Sentinel , since he either stalls the game by taxing your opponent or gives you tons of card advantage. Stick a Rancor , Angelic Destiny , or Wilt-Leaf Liege and you'll be drawing cards all day.
Happy brewing :)

psionictemplar, thanks again! Several of these will definitely work. I've added Act of Heroism to my Maybeboard and I'm looking to see how the others might fit in. In order to play the ambushers at little to no cost, I'd need most everyone tapped to draw in an attack. I'm still tweaking this concept and playtesting, but after turn 4-5, I lose momentum with the ambushers unless I can get a Wilt-Leaf Liege and several enchantments on the board.
Turn 1: Play a land (Forest). Play a Birds of Paradise
Turn 2: Play a land (Plains). Play Behemoth Sledge. Flash in Qasali Ambusher if attacked.
Turn 3: Play a land. Equip the sledge and smash with ambusher. Use Fog effect or Dawn Charm if BoP gets targeted. Taking damage is fine, here, too.
Turn 4: Play a land. Play Wilt-Leaf Liege as a 5/5 creature and boosting all others by 1 or 2. One mana left for fog after attacking.
Turn 5: Play a land. Play Loxodon Hierarch as a 6/6 creature. Two mana left for Ephemerate or Fog effect at end of turn.
I don't want to take advantage of your time and generosity, but do you have any thoughts here?

SmokyDart13, I've thought about adding Wilt-Leaf Liege as a replacement, it definitely has it's benefits, as not all tokens are 1/1. But at the same time, most of them in this deck are, making that extra counter very useful for the mono colored tokens. I'm not too overly worried about the other creatures having the counters. But It's still something I'm considering.

Memphismaymagic5 I tested both mana dorks and Loxodon Smiter for long time. Mana dorks just never felt good to me for some reason; Loxodon Smiter on the other hand was an auto 4x in the deck until Knight of Autumn got released. Being uncounterable is nice but in most games it just felt like Smiter could do nothing except being chumped or killed without getting any value from it. When Knight of Autumn is bad, they are the same level of bad; in every other case Knight of Autumn is always just better.
I could run Smiter instead of Dauntless Escort but having the anti-wrath effect in the main deck severely helps against certain matchups.

the problem with Wilt-Leaf Liege and CoCo is the 4 drop issue. Playing both cards means that you have a lot of high cost cards for modern. CoCo is a really good card, and would also allow for Eternal Witness . There's also Gavony Township and Stirring Wildwood as lands to help you against flooding. I would personally play CoCo and trim on the lieges. CoCo also helps you find sideboard creatures for different matchups. I would personally also consider Knight of the Reliquary , which of course works best with fetchlands, but can still be used to find utility lands.

@ jesmister ... "just some creatures that don't have too much value"
- Kitchen Finks = one of the best value cards out there
- Wilt-Leaf Liege = gives just about all my creatures +2/+2 while also being a 4/4 with discard protection? solid.
- Dryad Militant = graveyard hate and solid aggro value at 1 CMC
- Emmara, Soul of the Accord = get a 1/1 creature w/ lifelink every time she taps? yes please
- Qasali Pridemage = exalted, enchantment/artifact hate ability which always comes in handy
- Voice of Resurgence = restricts opponents on my turn, comes back as a creature (usually much bigger)
- Thalia, Heretic Cathar = great card to get out on turn 3, helps restrict opponent in the early game
- Scavenging Ooze = more graveyard hate, lifegain, gets big
- Knight of the Reliquary = mana fixer, gets big
- Thalia, Guardian of Thraben = nuff said
- Knight of Autumn = great utility card
- Rancor = one of the best 1-drop auras in the game
- Path to Exile = arguably the best value-kill spell in the game
- Fleecemane Lion = doesn't wow, but 3/3 for 2 CMC with a late-game ability that gets full +2/+2 buff is solid
I've play-tested with other cards like Eternal Witness , Collected Company , Loxodon Smiter , and Birds of Paradise just to name a few, but currently am content with where this deck is at and how it fares in competition.
If you can't see any sort of value in this deck I'd recommend getting your eyes checked, or at least turning your brain on before posting another clueless comment like that :)

I've seen Qasali Ambusher do some crazy stuff before. The card is better than most would give it credit for, even in a format like modern (especially now, when the format is much more creature-centric and a bit slower).
Anyway, one thing I wanted to point out is that I used to play fair GW aggro/company lists a few years back (when the format was kinda in a similar spot, just without stoneforge and wrenn&sixx..) and I always found this little card - Shield of the Oversoul - to actually be good much of the time. I went from playing 1 just for shits to nearly always having one in those types of decks. I am well aware of the reasons against playing such cards (2-for-1's etc), but I dunno...THAT card always impressed me, esp in GW decks with lords like Wilt-Leaf Liege . I really loved putting it on a Voice of Resurgence or Liege. :)
Dromoka's Command is another card I always tried to fit in as a 1-of, but that's a more replace-able effect I guess (although it's versatility in these decks is great, esp when you consider it's a "counterspell" vs targeted or even aoe burn spells, w/ upside). Burrenton Forge-Tender is also nice to have in the board for those pesky red spells/decks.
Btw, may I ask why you are not using Noble Hierarch instead of the Birds? I find Hierarch to be one of the best creatures in the game, with that exalted ability being more meaningful on her than any other exalted creature. I realize she adds a huge amount to the cost of the deck, though. Cavern of Souls is another obvious one to me, but it poses the same problem as Hierarch...
