Seraphicate on Whisperwood Elemental?

Possibly a one-of in the sideboard, and even then, I'd think there are better options to play against wipes, like Boros Charm or Faith's Reward.

Boros Charm might be a nice addition.

Austere Command could be like a Plague Wind.

Also, Raid Bombardment, Immortal Servitude, Grenzo, Dungeon Warden, and Reconnaissance are all bonkers.

I would also go heavy on ways to protect your field, like Ghostway, Boros Charm, etc..

More fetchlands and Kird Apes. T1 Stomping Ground, Kird Ape is an awesome play that you want to make as often as possible. I suggest Bloodstained Mire, as you will almost never fetch basics and it's better price-wise than alternatives. I would cut Vexing Devil, Strangleroot Geist, Wild Slash, and maybe a Domri Rade in order to add white. This gives you access to Path to Exile, Loam Lion, Lightning Helix, and Boros Charm, while also slowing the game down enough to maximize the effectiveness of Shaman of the Great Hunt. You might even go 5-color for Siege Rhino, Geist of Saint Traft, and Tribal Flames. Most Zoo decks seem to be moving in this direction, and it looks pretty sick in playtesting.

Rinne on Jor Kadeen the Mask Wearing Doofus

Coming from Reddit. Not sure if my comments posted, so Im putting them here as well. Whats your budget with this deck? How about wincons? I'm seeing a lot of equipment/metalcraft interactions here, so I'd make that your theme. With that said, here are some suggestions.

  • Stonehewer Giant is a reasonable low-cost alternative to Stoneforge Mystic, although you should add them both if you can.
  • Since it seems like you've gotten a lot of stuff from the white C14 deck, I'd stick in Masterwork of Ingenuity. It allows you to double up on any good equipment you have out.
  • If you're running Sunforger, put in a Mistveil Plains. It lets you recycle any instants you forge, and it's fetchable in turn with Tithe. Some other good instants to include are Boros Charm, Chaos Warp, Swords to Plowshares, Wear / Tear and Deflecting Palm. There's a ton you could use, though.
  • I'd cut Ardent Recruit, Balduvian Rage, Ash Zealot and Assault Strobe. They simply don't do enough in the long run. Armament Master may not be worth keeping either if you don't run enough Kor - if you do keep him, I'd suggest throwing in a good number more.

First things first you should at least run shocks to be able to cast your spells if for whatever reason you cannot use a scepter to cast your spells. You should also add a way to protect your scepter from hate. I use a play-set of Boros Charm and a couple of Simic Charms to full this purpose as it can grant the scepter indestructible. Boros charm also has the bonus ability of being an effective burn spell to close out the game as well. Another card I recommend you run is Silence as being able to stop your opponent casting spells for the rest of the game will almost always win you the game. Because you run no tokens Destructive Revelry seems much better than Sundering Growth as it also hurts your opponent.

Let's just focus on the mainboard first.Cut:
2x Burning-Tree Emissary
4x Experiment One
4x Ethereal Armor
4x Rancor

Add More:
1x Boros Charm
1x Ghor-Clan Rampager
2x Path to Exile

4x Voice of Resurgence
2x Knight of the Reliquary or Woolly Thoctar (other choices for the slot are Brimaz, King of Oreskos and Tarmogoyf, but I believe the first two are much more suited for the deck)

As is there are 4 extra slots after these changes, I KNOW there is something that goes in that place, but its 5am and I can't remember right now.
If you want explanations for these changes, just ask, but Voice of Resurgence is one of, if not the best card in the deck, simply because it forces your opponent's to cast more things at sorcery speed, and then you can get bigger creatures off of it afterward.

This deck needs some lands...

On a more serious note, I'm unsure on Soulfire Grand Master Spellheart Chimera or Jeskai Ascendancy.

A few cards that would be really good are Snapcaster Mage, Boros Charm, and Increasing Vengeance

Impact Resonance is a card I really want to try out.

Specific card improvements:

Lightning Strike should be Incinerate

Forked Bolt should be Arc Trail and or Fire/Ice

Lava Spike would be better as Searing Blaze
