Any must haves you'd recommend for SD?
Back to the 5C vs 4C conversation, I feel that without KCI in the mix and the rise of phoenix decks we want to go back to running freebooter and don't need the sideboard threats from white as much. What does everyone else think? Thalia is also likely to remain an all star.
Quote from MainstreamHipster »So, I have a mono-white humans deck from when it was in standard back during Scars of Mirrodin/Innistrad block. I'm looking to keep it mono-white, mostly due to budget concerns; is there a huge drop off in power because of that, or is it possible to stay mostly competitive without splashing for other colors/coco?

This is roughly what I'm running. I guess I misspoke when I said budget, because upon further review it looks like the most value comes from the Aether Vials and Caverns more than anything multicolored. The newer Thalia (3 cmc) is interesting, but for now I'll content myself to read up on the thread to avoid asking duplicate questions (such as why Silverblade isn't brought up). Appreciate the quick responses nonetheless; Humans was my first truly successful deck I've piloted; over pod, delver, and RDW alike. I'll be around.
Quote from Dirty Rat »Hello guys, I'm new here, just discovered this page and I find it very insteresting.
Answering to BartHenryksson, just won a local tournament yesterday. Only played two Auriok on my SB, but I really recommended 3 copies (I consider 4 too much). Its really really good against Grixis Shadow and freewin against Burn, also good against Dredge and Jund. No doubt Auriok is one of the best cards right now after the ban of KCI on the SB, and also Knight of Atumumn (in love with this card).
Quote from Dirty Rat »Sure. This is my list. I knew that some people on the store would play cementery decks (Phoenix and Dredge), so I decided to test 2x Rest in peace (good results btw)

Tell me your impressions if you want¡
1. What about Thalia, Heretic Cathar Maybe could be fine in our SB against Phoenix. I'm gonna test it, but still think in good events I would play Rest in peace.
2. What do you think about Whirler Rogue? Never played this card. Is it good? When?
3. Sideboard Guide against God Tier/Tier 1 Decks?
Sideboarded Deputy of Detention was amazing, @Viral_Drake suggested it last minute and I wish I played 2. Definitely would look to find room for another. Also definitely certain Damping Sphere should be a 3 of minimum. Best Tron hate for Humans IMO not close
