Pioneer Deck Help forum

I primarily play Commander and Modern, and thought I’d build a Pioneer deck to dip my toes into the format. I chose to go with aristocrats because I’m quite fond of the playstyle. For a budget, how is this deck for Pioneer? Any recommendations?

I have a pretty similar list to yours. The major differences: I love Hidden Stockpile in my list as both a sacrifice outlet and a fodder generator. I've replaced a few Priest of Forgotten Gods with those. As for non-budget options, there's the obvious The Meathook Massacre and the less obvious Athreos, God of Passage that is a pet card of mine, that has overperformed in the few games I played so far with the deck. The devotion is almost trivial with so many 1-drops and multicolored 2-drops, and also really easy to turn off when you need to, by nature of the deck.

plakjekaas thank you for the suggestions! Do you think I could move my Doomskar and Fatal Pushes to the sideboard? Love seeing Hidden Stockpile being played, AER was around the time I really started getting into Magic. :) I’ll definitely tweak some numbers in my deck!
