Target creature becomes red and gains haste until end of turn.
Draw a card.
Crimson Wisps Discussion
2 weeks ago
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.
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 ?
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 .

Hey, looks good for a first version.
Some card draw options to consider adding:
I consider all these low mana cost instants staples for Feather.
Other cards to consider adding within this deck's budget:
- Command Tower
- Battlefield Forge
- Rugged Prairie
- Mistveil Plains : put instants back into your library and then cast them again with Sunforger.
- Clifftop Retreat
- Inspiring Vantage
- Talisman of Conviction : two drop Boros mana rock.
- Knight of the White Orchid : two drop land ramp who can search for one of Foundry, Mistveil or Plains and put it onto the battlefield.
- Guttersnipe : each time you cast an instant/sorcery this does 2 damage to each opponent; each opponent, that's powerful.
- Open the Armory : tutor for one of Boots, Sunforger, Helm or Sword.
- Seize the Day : extra combat step spell that has interaction with Feather's ability since it targets a creature.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Boros Guildgate
- 5x Mountains
- Lightning Greaves
- Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran
- Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice
- Odric, Master Tactician
- Squee, the Immortal
- Truefire Captain
- Astral Steel
- Star of Extinction
- Razia's Purification
Greaves is a good card, but not with Feather because can't equip Feather with it since shroud doesn't allow you to target a creature meaning can't trigger Feather. You have Thought Vessel and Reliquary Tower , both excellent cards for no max hand size, don't also need Spellbook. Good luck with your deck.

So I was checking over my $10 decklists, and $10 Boros Weenie had shot up way over budget. 3x Crimson Wisps was more than the rest of the deck combined... I did a bit of price history checking, and it looks like it spiked during WAR spoilers. Expedite had a small blip, then restabilized. What's going on here? Is there some new deck I haven't seen that likes its creature base to be red?

Looks fun! I do have a couple of thoughts. Why
instead of a different one drop that benefits from all the spells you'll be casting? Like
. You also might want to find room for some of the cantrips- like
. If you target feather with them, you'll get to draw a card and bring it back to hand so you can draw more later!
You also definitely don't want to be running Blood Moon in your sideboard here. If you cast it, you suddenly only have 4 white sources in your whole deck, which is very not good for you.

Looking good. Mark of Fury is okay, but has to survive till EOT. I hate 1 removal giving a 2 for 1. Maybe double up on your Expedite with Crimson Wisps . I like it better because it can still draw you an A/D/D to cast with the haste Kaalia of the Vast .
I see your playing Terramorphic Expanse , there's definitely other better fetch lands, but don't forget about Evolving Wilds . I don't recommend either because I hate tapped mana (except Bojuka Bog ).
Obviously Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Restoration Angel or Village Bell-Ringer go infinite, but there is also Combat Celebrant and Zealous Conscripts as well, but of course relies on the Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker quite heavily.
Also, not sure if you've mapped out all your Infinite combos, but don't forget you have:
Tainted Pact is an inexpensive (and instant) speed tutor, the problem is, you can't have any duplicate lands in your deck (even duplicate basic lands) so that's where it gets expensive. There's also Demonic Consultation if your a gambler lol, damn those top 6, it's also instant so can pull a Master of Cruelties if Kaalia of the Vast triggered ability gets on the stack, tutor for the killer.
You may want Crucible of Worlds , it works best with all the fetches like Windswept Heath , Wooded Foothills all the fetch lands, but also is awesome with Strip Mine or Wasteland ($$$). If you have Crucible of Worlds + a Fetch land, basically can filter out all the mana from the deck (while ramping) so when you draw it's usually favorable. I've contemplated it over Chromatic Lantern but don't have one to test, although reasonably priced since reprint.
I have similar worries around Cartouche of Zeal (2 for 1), but when you need haste you need it. I like Leyline of the Void more than Tormod's Crypt , Relic of Progenitus for sure, since it's a lasting effect and CMC0 in opening hand, and prevents the Experience from getting earned at all. But they are ok at the job. Relic of Progenitus would be amazing if it could target the card, but it has more utility than Tormod's Crypt anyway even with the downside.
Be careful with Angel of Jubilation he shuts down your deck too, like Goblin Bombardment , Razaketh, the Foulblooded , Necropotence , Phyrexian Reclamation , Diabolic Intent (might be wrong on this one would have to check the rule book on additional costs), Mana Confluence , Bloodstained Mire (or any Fetch).
Maybe Blood Crypt / Godless Shrine / Sacred Foundry probably enter tapped too (again this one would have to read the rulebook too, not sure if that's considered paying a cost to "activate abilities" probably not because it doesn't have the : symbol on it.
City of Brass is another good multi-color mana asource.
Terminus is a terrific way of getting rid of all those recurring creatures too (unless he can sac them all in response somehow).
I might have mentioned before, Angel of Despair is far superior to someone like Angel of Jubilation unless she's solving a specific pod problem for disruption to your deck. Hellkite Tyrant is hand if you play artifact decks like Breya, Etherium Shaper or Teferi, Temporal Archmage .
Mother of Runes can give protection if your facing Targeted removal.
Some ideas anyway, the reprinted fetches like Windswept Heath are fairly cheap still (I think).

Minor improvements, your rocks make a lot of colorless mana. Most of your spells are one or two mana, and don't use much or any colorless mana. Replace them with Marble Diamond or Fire Diamond or something similar because I am sure you will find Thran Dynamo will not be as useful as you want.
You included some odd choices for protection. Apostle's Blessing >> Faith's Shield or Blessed Breath unless you really think protection from artifacts will be relevant.( Bathe in Light is also good in it's own way)
A Fun add is Intimidation Bolt . Hit you own creature and you can't be attacked for the rest of your game as long as you have 3xplayers mana. (oh look Feather, the Redeemed is a 3/4, and will live from that ;) )
