Coordinated Assault Discussion
2 weeks ago
I love the idea, so I started browsing all red one-cost cards in Modern using Gatherer... I should be sleeping instead... oh well.
Since you're going entirely for one drops, you may want to condense your plans into two colors - when I playtested your deck with the playtest feature, I had a hard time getting a good start because the manabase is too diverse for getting things out quickly.
You might consider sticking with just two colors - red and white. The reason for that choice is because those are more likely to have "prowess" creatures (I think), and spells that boost all your dudes, rather than just one at a time (like green usually gets for low cost). Giant Growth might be replaced with Built to Smash, Taste for Mayhem Titan's Strength or Furious Resistance
Since you're trying to get lots of dudes into play, spells that boost all your creatures, rather than just one, might be best. In keeping with my red/white suggestion, have you considered Banners Raised, Weapon Surge or Coordinated Assault?
Also, here's a few one-drops that caught my eye.
- Boros Recruit
- Flamekin Harbinger would help replace itself (or help you get more flamekins), making it easier for you to be consistent with drawing your creatures.
- Figure of Destiny
- Genju of the Spires (you don't care about having your mountains survive once you have three mana or so...)
- Goblin Bushwhacker
- Skin Invasion Flip (played on an opponent's creature perhaps?)
- Zurgo Bellstriker
A Crack the Earth on turn two after playing a little guy, forcing a slower opponent to sacrifice a land or mana dork, could be devasating. Also, replace Swords to Plowshares (Not modern legal) with something modern legal like Path to Exile or, in a pinch, Fiery Impulse or Flame Slash.

DO NOT, i repeat DO NOT, add Kindled Fury. It's terrible. Both Weapon Surge and Coordinated Assault are strictly better. Other than that, pretty cool list! Reminds me of standard at the time of Theros-Origins era.

I read about this and unfortunately Zada, Hedron Grinder does not trigger heroic abilities. In fact, copies of targeted spells target as well yes, but since they aren't cast but are created directly on the stack, they do not trigger heroics.
"706.10. To copy a spell (...) means to put a copy of it onto the stack; a copy of a spell isnt cast (...)"

All effects that use the term "target" are targetting, while all effects that don't, don't. Your second question is easy to answer: Yes, casting an Aura with a creature as a target will trigger Willbreaker.
303.4a. An Aura spell requires a target, which is defined by its enchant ability.
To name some other, non-standard examples that will trigger it, consider:
- Ajani's Presence (targets as many creatures as you can pay for)
- Coordinated Assault (targets one or two creatures)
- Angel of Salvation (targets up to 5 creatures)
- Cauldron Haze (targets any amount of creatures)
However, some effects won't trigger it:
- Clone (copy effects generally don't target, though that's easy to overlook)
In general, effects that require choosing permanents don't target (and will not use the word "target"), even though it might feel like they do.

For time and space reasons, as of now, I'm just linking uncommon and common reprints.
When Marchesa's Decree enters the battlefield, you become the monarch.
Whenever a creature attacks you or a planeswalker you control, the controller of that creature loses 1 life.
(Hey! A better pacifism!)
Reprints in Alphabetical:
Ugh... I might wait on the commons, this is really taxing.

Im guessing this deck is kinda budget?
I would say add in 2 more Coordinated Assaults, because it can activate 2 creatures heroic abilities for the cost of 1 mana.
Adding in 1-2 Zada, Hedron Grinder could be fun! Copying every spell you cast and all of creatures heroic abilities trigger!

Update: removed one Deflecting Palm and added one Triton Tactics as well as two copies to the sideboard. I always prefer only having to leave 1 mana up, especially in a deck with so much to do. If you find yourself seriously racing, you can still side to have 3 Deflecting Palm . Meanwhile, the one-of toolbox copies of each will leave opponents guessing long after they have seen one, debating every attack - keep them guessing.The triton alongside the Blistercoil Weird and Crackleburr will mean 'tapped out' is rarely actually tapped out. Against non-creature decks or unblockables, e.g. Merfolk, simply remove the triton and board in palms and counters. I removed 1 Twisted Image from the sideboard to make space, but I consider 3 the minimum as my locals have a lot of very problematic Spellskite Wall of Omens and less-troublesome birds/hierarchs floating around with all the Jikki, Infect, combo and control going on. Against many decks it gives a real edge. Cards which are certainly worth considering also include Coordinated Assault for packing the extra punch off prowess or surprising with a vicious untap synergy for Blistercoil Weird and of course Dromoka's Command for all the synergies it brings, screwing up burn, key enchants like unlife for Ad Nauseum, targeted removal, and the usual prowess trigger. So many possibilities, so few slots!
Feel free to comment with any ideas folks.
Noogin thanks very much for the comment, I am glad you enjoy the deck. Going to try it at the local FNM next week and will post results!

Hey, your deck seems good, but it needs some improvement. Right now in your deck you only have 18 triggers for heroic. You need more spells and cheaper ones. Madcap Skills, Coordinated Assault, and Defiant Strike, are good cheap triggers. Dynacharge and Weapon Surge are very good as long as you cast it for it's alternate cost. And for heroic to trigger it requires the spell to be cast. Heroes Remembered is not good in this deck. It takes minimum turn 10 to cast and any good agro deck should have won by then. For the creatures you only need 4 Favored Hoplite, 4 Lagonna-Band Trailblazer, and 4 Satyr Hoplite and maybe 3 Fabled Hero. Also if you don't already know Zada, Hedron Grinder does not trigger heroic. This is because your not casting the copied spell. Other then that this deck is great.
