Innistrad has always been my favourite plane as it has always allowed my favourite archetype to flourish... Boros humans! However without Champion of the Parish/Thalia's Lieutenant it does rather feel like I am limiting myself to tribal out of principle rather than practicality. Flare of Faith and Rally the Ranks are my only cards that reward playing one creature type. All of that said I'm seeing decent success on Arena with this deck, and am looking forward to trying out (a budget) version of it out at FNM soon.
Ambitious Farmhand was a card I discovered almost by accident. I didn't have enough rare crafts on arena so it was just a makeweight, but the land grab is so helpful that I want to keep the playset and the lifegain when it transforms has been awesome. I've also found the quality of 3 drops at the moment is amazing, both Adeline, Resplendent Cathar and Arni Brokenbrow are strong enough cards that I could run them. I'm open to experimenting with the main list if people think they can see improvements.
What I've barely even started to think about yet is my side deck, but I'm getting close to the stage where that is my next step. I seem to perform well against the other aggro decks. But as is often the case with aggro, my worst performance comes against midrange, in this meta that is often mono-green with Esika's Chariot so I'm thinking more removal. Maybe 2 more Fateful Absence, playsets of Brutal Cathar and Cathar Commando. The black deck that runs The Meathook Massacre is a pain, but 2 more Flare of Faith is the only defence I can think against that. That leaves Izzet Epiphany. Especially Alrund's Epiphany. But I have no idea what I could use against that? Anyone got any ideas. Any thoughts about other threats I should be preparing against in my SD?
