Yeah, I guess Battle Screech isn't a really great suggestion, just goodstuff. I just didn't want to only have negative things to say, though lol.

Thanks for letting me know about those cards being Uncommon! Guess I misread the rarity when I was looking up cards. Replaced them with basics for now. As for Battle Screech, I like the card, but not sure how well it will fit in this deck. I'll think about it though.

Thanks for the help and checking out the deck!

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but Swords to Plowshares & Familiar's Ruse were never printed at Common, and thus are illegal here. =(

Circular Logic WAS released as a Common on MTGO, so it is legit.

Also, Battle Screech is a staple that you might like.

Battle Screech no is legal in modern.

Definitely exchange the Kabira Crossroads for Plains. Token decks are aggressive, and you can't afford so many enters-the-battlefield-tapped lands.

Battle Screech is Pauper-legal thanks to Vintage Masters on Magic:Online. Definitely recommend it over Captain's Call. You're also going to want Raise the Alarm for more tokens.

Personal preference, but in playtesting I find Marshaling Cry to be an extremely undervalued pump spell for Pauper. Vigilance is nice, but the strength is in cycling and flashback. Try it out; promise you'll love it.

But Battle Screech has no printed card with a black set symbol on it! ;) I know that card is good. I'll reconsider. ;)

But I don't think I need much lifegain (in form of the soul sisters) in this deck. It wants to be aggressive itself. I have the Suture Priest for emergency, in case I draw him then. I saw other Sigil Captain lists with all four ETB lifegain creatures in it and I don't think it's really necessary.

I do not feel that the black splash for BCV or costly plunder is worth it. Three colors is hard in pauper and you have to really justify it. Ruining the manabase of a decent Boros deck is not really worth it. If you add Kuldotha Rebirth and 3 more artifacts like Porcelain Legionnaire or other cards like Battle Screech or Rally the Peasants, you will have a much more consistent deck.

And the comparson to ancestral is not really good. Sure, you can spend 2 cards and 4 mana to draw three cards, but it is not getting you far ahead, nor does it have mad recursion possibilities. And the comparison between rhino and BCV - one more mana, no trample, no additional toughness and no requirement for metalcraft really make the cards too incomparable.
