-2: Target creature you control fights another target creature.
-7: You get an emblem with "Creatures you control have double strike, trample, hexproof and haste."
Domri Rade Discussion

I'm totally nitpicking here, but it's not factual to say you can play both Wrenn and Six and Summer Bloom faster than any other deck in Oathbreaker. It's pretty much impossible to play a Planeswalker on T1, (and I haven't really researched that it's impossible - it may well be possible) but it's not that difficult to play a 2-3 CMC Planeswalker on T2 and follow that with a Signature spell on T3. For example, T1: Forest, Arbor Elf ; T2, Mountain, Domri Rade - while the likelihood of of drawing a singleton Arbor Elf is tenuous, the proof that it's possible there, and serves as just one example of how possible it is to play a T2 Planeswalker. Totally nitpicking though.

OK. A couple minor changes before I get my remaining stuff in on my maybe list and find out what I want to take out.
Goblin Trashmaster and Pashalik Mons have been taken out due to near to total uselessness in this deck. Every time I have played them they were dead cards that provided no value or anything other than being a blocker each time. Maybe if I put a Mana Echoes into the deck the pashalk mons might be useful but otherwise it's a wast of space. Birds of Paradise and Domri Rade have taken their places.

Hey , thanks for the reply! The meta is extremely creature heavy. That's why I'm running Harsh Scrutiny in the mainboard (which I might replace with a Despise instead), with a third Duress in the sideboard to swap out when needed. We calculate based on the price on MTGGoldfish and I'm at $102 right now (https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/2290506#paper), so you're probably right about Inquisition of Kozilek
We only have one burn-ish deck (which also happens to be me running a mono-red prowess variant), so I feel like lifegain can live in the sideboard for now (e.g. Pulse of Murasa & Spike Feeder ). I chose Grisly Salvage over Pulse of Murasa because I was getting mana-screwed pretty regularly. The cheap land package is really difficult to do in these particular three colours. But, Grisly Salvage is a card that I can use when I need to grab a land or when I want to grab a potentially game-swinging threat. And, I feel like since I'm not running fetches or anything that tosses things into the graveyard Pulse of Murasa will only grab low-cmc creatures that I had played earlier in the game rather than massive hulks that can swing things in my favour. That being said, Pulse of Murasa may be better in the late game, but worse in the early game (which is where I have trouble).
As for Aether Hub , I've felt like it's value is extremely dependent on getting Winding Constrictor or Glint-Sleeve Siphoner out. If you are desperate and have to use its energy counter, Aether Hub can be a dead land due to the high number of coloured spells in the deck. That's why I cut one. But, when it goes off, it really goes off! TBH, the land base is where this version of the deck really struggles (as well as the reliance on the Winding Constrictor / Glint-Sleeve Siphoner combo). So, any additional thoughts on these issues would be super helpful!
Bristling Hydra is a super interesting addition and might help with my Aether Hub problem. I'm worried it might be a bit slow and isn't a big enough payoff in the 4cmc slot. Greenbelt Rampager might also work in here. I honestly am not sure about either of those. I'll give it a shot either way!
Champion of Lambholt might also be a bit slot. On turn 4 and beyond, the plan is basically to play one big creature a turn (hopefully). So, I feel like Champion of Lambholt won't grow fast enough. I think you recommended Managorger Hydra in a comment thread earlier. Do you think either of these is better than Sprouting Thrinax in this deck?
Also, do you have a preference between Phyrexian Revoker and Pithing Needle ? I guess the threat and the ability to grow Scavenging Ooze with Phyrexian Revoker isn't worth the vulnerability it has as a creature. Pithing Needle is probably the better choice.

I would cut Domri Rade for Domri, Anarch of Bolas , not because it's better, per se, but because it supports aggro much better. Old Domri asks for the game to get relatively long, Anarch just wants you to smash face.
I would also like to see some more 1-drops in an aggro deck. I suggest Kird Ape .

Stomping Ground is pretty pricey but I'll keep it in maybe until I have the extra cash for them. As for the walkers, lets say I get rid of Domri Rade and replace him with two Arlinn Kord Flip and two Garruk Relentless Flip. Next I can get rid two Reckless Waif Flip and one of each enchantment to put in four Nightpack Ambusher . What do you guys think?

I think you can safely go down to 38 lands with the cuts coming from the regular mountains. Replacing 2 more basics with Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse will let you do some color fixing. Any reason no inclusion for one or two lands like Gruul Guildgate ? I'm not a big fan of tapped lands either but one or two shouldn't hurt your development as much as getting color screwed will.
Fresh Meat should let you recover from the inevitable boardwipe.
For protecting your commander, cards like Ranger's Guile , Sheltering Word , Blossoming Defense , Blinding Fog and Hapatra's Mark offer some surprise value but you eat the life shielding your commander [Word is a wash]. Alpha Authority is more on-theme and is 'repeatable' protection. Archetype of Endurance [sadly not a wolf/werewolf] protects your whole team as does Domri Rade if you can get to the emblem.
