Defiant Strike should fit right in here.

Hrmm, I think you'll find that you'll dump your hand pretty fast, don't have a way to refill it, and top decking 1-drops won't combat the big boys your opponent will be spitting out at turn 4, so you need a way to really pump the team and swing hard before they can stabilize. But, in the nature of staying 1-drop, Bonesplitter can help. If you cartouche a guy and have a splitter on him and mostly beat down with that, something like Akrasan Squire can help pump him and stay back for a chump if needed on the back-swing. Defiant Strike can give you a teeny bump and draw you a card. Standard bearer seems bad because you'll be empty handed, so the discard to trigger his ability sounds extra painful. I'd go up to a full playset of the javelineers (because Delver.) Cloudshift could be cool to save a blocker from dying and maybe reset a javelineer or get you an extra token from card draw from thraben inspector, but might dilute the deck a bit. I see him in your maybeboard, but I'd def make room for selfless cathar. He's proven himself in the token decks.

If you find yourself getting steamrolled, you could keep the 1-drop flavor and add some soul sisters to offset the life loss.

Looks fun!

I have not seen one list ever include Defiant Strike. Respect how much thought you put into this deck though. Goldnight Commander + Increasing Devotion has proven helpful to me often. not sure if it would help yours.

Hello !

You can use Bonds of Faith instead of pacifism You can go x4 Favored Hoplite, same as Hero of Iroas You can also consider a bunch of instant to protect your creatures or draw some cards as it synergises also with "Heroic" if it targets your creatures, I personally suggest Defiant Strike and Emerge Unscathed. For the enchantements, you can go x4 Ethereal Armor aswell, maybe a bunch of Gryff's Boon and I greatly recommend (even if it's a little bit more expensive) Hyena Umbra

With such a low mana curve, I am not sure you need as many mana rocks as you have. I would consider the following artifact: Aetherflux Reservoir, Primal Amulet, Runechanter's Pike, and Sphinx-Bone Wand.

Not sure why you have Blue Elemental Blast in this deck as just about any counter spell is better. I would try to include as many cantrips that draw a card as you can as it will cycle through your deck faster while getting you value. Such as cards like Anticipate, Defiant Strike, Opt, Peek, Shadow Rift, Crash Through, Ponder, and Renegade Tactics.

I like Narset, if you want another version of her rebound effect, check out Taigam, Ojutai Master. Also if you end up with a critical amount of combat tricks, Zada, Hedron Grinder can be a real power punch.

I made a version of this deck that is much more Token/Storm-centric. Take a look at it for some ideas, Shu Yun Tempest of Tokens. The strategies are different, but there are some cards that are common for most Shu Yun decks.

@HurricaneZach Yeah the more I test this one the more i'm realizing instant speed isn't a total do or die thing for it. Ethereal Armor seems like a good swap but I think I'm gonna keep Defiant Strike where it is cause even that little bit of digging really helps balance out the low land count and/or keep my tank full when it comes time to stat topdecking.
