PunkJkr3 That's actually what I intended to put into the deck, guess I put in the wrong one though. Now I'll try running both and see if it helps, I dropped Balduvian Rage for it.

Yeah man, this one is tough. It looks pretty good, although I think I may take out some of the artifact hate and instead put in more targeted pump spells. You have a lot of protection spells (although maybe lacking a Gods Willing ) and double-strike spells, but you have few actual pump spells. Some of the spells I think can be upgraded, namely Boros Charm , Blessed Alliance , and maybe Balduvian Rage . These are good cards, but specifically with the indestructible spells, they are mostly used to counteract wrath effects which are not played in Tiny Leaders because of the mana cost restriction. You might look into Reckless Charge , Brute Force , Rush of Blood , Titan's Strength , and things of the like. I like the heroic package. Some of the other creatures you can probably cut without too much loss. Taking out Duergar Hedge-Mage and Electrostatic Field is where I would start. They just seem slow and kind of clunky. I could see Akroan Crusader and especially Dreadhorde Arcanist fitting nicely. This style of deck is entirely focused on what it is trying to do, so if you are interacting with the opponent it means you are detracting from the power of the deck, which is to apply pressure. Nice build though, I am not looking forward to facing it!

Psychotic Fury is great for this with your sunforger package. Card draw is hard to come by in boros and in my opinion useful cantrips are key to keeping tempo.

Other options along this thought process include Abeyance , Balduvian Rage , Expedite , Gorilla War Cry , and Hallowed Moonlight but I don't think they are quite as good here as psychotic fury.

multimedia Thanks for your suggestions! My deck did run Balduvian Rage for a long time; but I decided against it for two reasons: for one; it’s a fake instant. You can only cast it on an Attacking creature, so you completely miss out on the recast ability a “lesser” card like, say, Titan's Strength gives you. That, plus the fact that you pretty much have to tap out (4 mana for a pump spell is a LOT in this deck) to make it equal to said Titan's Strength just isn’t worth it imo. Plus, Orim’s Thunder is a repeatable destruction spell that I can kick while Sunforger tutors it up; which I find baddass.

Stand Firm is a highly underrated card in this deck as scrying two in the late game really helps me dig for answers or protection; and honestly I think more decks should run it. The stat boost is minimal compared to the recurring value of possibly scrying 8 before your next turn begins. That said; if they ever print an instant of Seize the Day that is 4CMC or less you’d better bet your ass I’ll add it in.

Knight of the White Orchid was originally in this deck but I removed it for a Tithe , so that way I can search for Mistveil Plains and get that sweet Sunforger synergy. If I could make a cut that would allow me both Knight AND the Bauble I’d be happy; as the Knight is situational in that I need LESS lands than my opponent whereas Bauble don’t care. That, and I run Bauble for the minute chance I can drop it whilst I control a Monastery Mentor . That’s it. Knight is just a decent bear that I wouldn’t want to target over any other creature in the deck.

Guttersnipe is, admittedly, a great card; that I would love to reinclude at some point just for pure value; but alas the vast majority of the time I win through Feather going face REALLY hard instead of my tokens getting the reacharound; so Guttersnipe’s aoe damage isn’t as valuable to me right now... plus, Akroan Conscriptor has some Janky combos of his own; allowing me to Cloudshift a creature he stole to allow me to keep it for forever: or even Path to Exile it so I can ramp while removing their board! :D

Forbidden Orchard is neat; though I’m not a fan of giving my opponents reseources when my gameplan is to out value them. Ill give it thought.

Just curious how you’re liking cards such as Mox Amber and Niveous Wisps in your list? Are they restrictive at all in your testing?

I’ve been debating adding Amber to my own list just for additional colored mana; but the possibility of having a “dead card” in hand feels really harsh to me... however being able to drop it alongside Feather to have open protection also sounds decent.

As far as cards like Wisps, Heal , and Bandage go; are you getting your mileage out of them simply for the card draw? Or are you also getting use out of their abilities? I understand your reasoning for not using more combat oriented/ narrow cards such as Psychotic Fury or Balduvian Rage in the list; though I would be hard pressed to drop my Rage for anything due to just how potent double strike is on Feather.

Been lurking on your list for a while, keep it up!
