Akroan Crusader Discussion

There are a number of cheap, effective red kards Keldon Marauders has fallen out of favour, but is a 2 mana lava axe when it works. Nivmagus Elemental is cheap and provides limited counterspell protection and the oppertunity for combo finishes with Temur Battle Rage. Sin Prodder is dirt cheap and very effective, even without cheap delve.
With super budget the lack of lightning bolt hurts red, and lack of boros charm red white so janky combo is usually the most functional option. Board flooding with Mogg War Marshal, Foundry Street Denizen Dragon Fodder Battle Hymn Dragonrage Akroan Crusader Empty the Warrens, Haze of Rage and so forth to spam out a win. Guttersnipe used to be good but has fallen to more efficient options, leaving him pretty cheap.
Human tribal with Keldon Marauders/Thatcher Revolt/Kessig Malcontents is functional, especially with Gather the Townsfolk and Dearly Departed/Cathartic Reunion. For the non-$10 version there are some very competitive lists out there, but there are a lot of cards in modern that aren't valuable because they just aren't in short supply but are still super good.

Karma1452 ive thought about those two cards. i have full sets of them. Akroan Crusader is a good card, but too slow. i will use buffs after the declare attackers stage, to ramp damage. using that would not give me the surprise aspect of which creature i will buff. Guttersnipe has a special place for me, i love the card, it was in my very first deck. and ive considered putting it in. but i decided to go with the Countryside Crusher, because getting a 3rd land is not something i want and has almost cost me games before.
but thanks for the suggestions :)

There might actually be something here since cards that boost toughness tend to be cheaper than those that boost power. Shape the Sands + Twisted Image is sort of like an instant speed Phytoburst, just as an example. Arena Athlete seems to be the strongest target given the likelihood of blockers. Akroan Crusader could have synergy with wider effects like Tower Defense and Triton Tactics though. How you get the mana to work out is another question entirely.
Also, am I missing something with Endless One or is it just a throw-in?

Also, what do you think about Akroan Crusader? Mana efficiency is good but he obviously doesn't interact as well with Zada. I might also brew up Wort, the Raidmother and I think both of these cards would be very good there as tokens go up in importance.
