Battered Golem / Traxos, Scourge of Kroog + Banishing Knack / Retraction Helix can be an alternate wincon/enabler and work well with Paradise Mantle and Arcum's Astrolabe .

Another idea is running one Laboratory Maniac and, if you can afford it, one Manamorphose .

If you can fit it in Crimson Wisps gives Emry, Lurker of the Loch haste.

Also, why Myr Enforcer ?

Pretty much any cantrip cards (ones that cost 1 mana and draw you a card) are always good. Defiant Strike , Expedite , and Crimson Wisps are some of the most popular ones I believe. Then you'll just want other good spells to add like Infuriate , Shelter , Gods Willing , Titan's Strength and other cards that cost small amounts of mana that you can get back every time you cast them with Feather.

Token producers like Young Pyromancer and Monastery Mentor would also be good additions since you will be planning to cast so many spells.

As for staples I would make sure to pick up artifacts like Talisman of Conviction , Mind Stone , Boros Signet and any other mana rock that won't cost too much mana.

Removal spells you will want are Swords to Plowshares , Generous Gift , and Chaos Warp

And Sunforger is almost a must have in any Boros deck since being able to cast almost any instant speed spell from your deck is crazy good.

Though I don't personally enjoy this commander...yes Psychotic Fury and Crimson Wisps are a must in this deck. Literally, every feather player has those 2 cards in their deck. Also, Zada and mirror wing aren't needed unless you're doing a token focus; they're great in that archetype but in a weird beats/draw deck its suboptimal. Without fetches/shocks and duals the only things you can really add are some of the rainbow lands City of Brass and Mana Confluence are still a tad pricey though. As for removal for boros the go to cards are always Path to Exile , Swords to Plowshares , and Lightning Bolt . Everything comes down to the play testing you do and your meta. Its definitely a good start for a feather deck but will only get better if you test all your options until you find the right fit.

First off, you should put your list into a deck - it makes giving advice much easier as people can see the deck stats.

As for recommendations, maybe Crimson Wisps / Expedite ? it's a cantrip at worst, and gives your Pili-Pala haste to combo off. You would however need to splash red.

Your other option is to use something like Blue Sun's Zenith to deck your opponent.

I propose to take out Aria of Flame for Goblin Engineer .

  1. We don't need another win condition and Aria of Flame is kind of a drag with its 'Instant and Sorcery' only while giving our opponents 10 lives each.

  2. We need to have our pieces connect and leave less to the luck of the draw.

Right now we have disconnects in our sequence to winning... Feather, the Redeemed has a disconnect with Sunforger which tutors for Enlightened Tutor to grab us Paradox Engine but only if we get to draw using a draw spell. But where is Aetherflux Reservoir ?

I have Thalia's Lancers to tutor for Paradox Engine , even though it is up to luck if I draw Thalia's Lancers , which leaves Enlightened Tutor to grab Aetherflux Reservoir .

But by having Goblin Engineer I can grab any one of the missing artifacts that is required for our win condition. With a casting cost of 1R and activation cost R, we just need Crimson Wisps or Expedite to pull our artifact into the battlefield for a total CMC of 4, which is the same as Aetherflux Reservoir and less than Paradox Engine .

And, if need be, we can also pull Sunforger , straight into the battlefield. Which is cheaper CMC than using Stoneforge Mystic and Open the Armory (When combined with the casting cost of Sunforger ).

Yes, we need to sacrifice an artifact for the activation but that's why we have Ancient Den and Great Furnace , and that Mind Stone doesn't seem so useless in the late game anymore.

By the way: Goblin Engineer can be tutored by Imperial Recruiter and Recruiter of the Guard . I might even take out Thalia's Lancers and replace it with Goblin Matron / Goblin Recruiter .
