Sarios254 on Soul Humans - BUDGET

for you´re manabase I would put more Flooded Strand ´s and Windswept Heath ´s, the reason is that fetches lower you´re overall libary cards so you´re chances for getting better cards are much higher if you fetch ech turn, obviously Arid Mesa ´s are better, but I think you excluded them for beeing to pricey.

A nice curve topper would be one or two copies of Gideon, Ally of Zendikar or Elspeth, Sun's Champion

Hello! Saw the deck pop up in my feed and as I already had a curse based Zur the enchanter deck i thought it might be fun to give your deck a spin.

I play primarily online and in budget, so I had to make some changes: The fetch lands were outside my pricing limitations, so Bloodstained Mire was replaced with Swamp , Flooded Strand replaced with Evolving Wilds , Horizon Canopy replaced with Bountiful Promenade , Polluted Delta with Terramorphic Expanse , Verdant Catacombs with Cabal Coffers , Wooded Foothills with Golgari Rot Farm , and I kept Windswept Heath as I already owned one. For anyone reading this, realize that removing fetches drastically alters the pacing and mana fixing of the deck, but also saves hundreds of tix. I kept Serra's Sanctum in, even though it was outside my price range, as there was no suitable replacement.

With no other notable changes I begin my playtesting: Game 1: kept 3 lands ( Krosan Verge + filter land + Woodland Cemetery ) Utopia Sprawl , Satyr Enchanter , the game quickly spiraled out of control with 1 player mana screwed and the other two playing token-based strategies. game ended with Teferi's Protection into Replenish to avoid a board wipe and stick Opalesence for lethal.

Game 2: A slow clunky hand led to my first mulligan which yielded 3 lands, Eidolon of Blossoms and 2 bad enchantments. brutal flooding let to discarding 4 lands by turn 6 after 2 tymna attacks for 1 and 2 cards respectively: this is not likely a reflection on the deck but MTGO's shuffler. flood happens. after awhile became archenemy, got my board wiped by Cyclonic Rift with no way to keep most of my enchants in hand on cleanup and had Replenish hit by Dissipate causing a huge setback. Having Mana Tithe in the deck would have been an enormous boon in this situation, and at worst it's a one-of one cost spell that occasionally completely hoses a play.

While I highly doubt 2 games are enough to see everything a deck has to offer, from what I have seen thus far it performs well, feels fun to play, and is fairly consistent. In my second game I could have played around counter magic, but I wasn't expecting exile specifically. It might be worth finding room for Riftsweeper and Mana Tithe but if the deck performs this way without the fetches you're probably on to something great.

I decided to drop Blossoming Defense and Banisher Priest and put in a playset of Militia Bugler instead. Banisher Priest didn't do anything that I already didn't have. Blossoming Defense only helped me against 1 deck and that player has been playing less recently so I might find a place to put it in my Sideboard. Settle the Wreckage has replaced Tragic Arrogance as my just in case board wipe, and Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip now has 3 copies in the Sideboard. I also fixed my mana base to better suit Tireless Tracker and brought in 4x Windswept Heath replacing 2x Plains and 2x Forests.

Wooded Bastion does not create green mana on turn 1, which is when you need green mana. You want Temple Garden instead, which can also be fetched by Windswept Heath .

Be aware that Hushwing Gryff is a nonbo with Iona, Shield of Emeria .

Gilded Lotus is too slow to really be good, I think, and you don't need the mana fixing from it.

Oblivion Ring is slightly better than Banishing Light since it actually exiles the target permanent, even if they have enchantment removal ready, so you can use it to get rid of tokens and auras on the target.

I don't like Light from Within , you want to cast an angel with 4 mana, not an enchantment.

Leyline of Sanctity is more commonly a sideboard card, and Privileged Position is only really good if you play in a meta with a lot of spot-removal.

Path to Exile on the other hand is an excellent removal card that I think you'd want in the mainboard rather than the side.
