Deck Description

Basic Idea:
This deck is supposed to be usable by players totally new to magic, getting a magic deck in their hands for the first time. So I wanted to keep it real simple and limit creatures and other spells to have no more than 1 ability/ effects.

To keep this deck simple I decided to stay modern-legal even if this would only be played at the kitchen table. Lands are limited to Commons and Uncommon', no Rare's or Mythic's. Other cards are limited to Common's, Uncommon's and 1 Rare (max 4 times) per deck, no Mythic's.
Mass-strengthening-effects (+x/+x to all creatures) and too many spells with multiple effects should also be avoided.

The overall budget for the beginner's decks should be between 14 to 16$. (Mid value).

Keywords in this you'll have to explain:
Deathtouch, Reach, +1/+1 Counters, Destroy

At the moment this deck exists only on this site and has never been played against another deck. Regardless I'm open to all suggestions and ideas that may help to further improve this deck.

How to Play

Your small creatures will help you to survive early-game. When you want to block something big with them just to avoid damage make sure you have Ravenous Harpy or Altar's Reap to benefit from their death.
When Izoni comes onto the battlefield you profit from a high number of creatures in your graveyard.
