Boza, I run marauder in my sideboard at the moment, with a fierce empath to help tutor. I have yet to actually draw it in time, but it probably is the best answer, since it is not only value, but straight shuts down the fling plan. What is your opinion on Gorilla Shaman against affinity? it feels like a sweet combo with marauder.

It you can consistently produce a lot of mana Rolling Thunder and Crypt Rats are good. Evincar's Justice has buyback but it doesn't kill their bigger threats. If you're looking for something to fight affinity, i'll suggest some artifact hate like Gorilla Shaman.

What about Viashino Heretic over the Gorilla Shaman? The activated ability is a lot more cost efficient and it deals damage.

If you have any, Pathmaker Initiate sync's well with Kiln Fiend as you can activate the ability before you begin buffing it. You may also want to consider Delver of Secrets  Flip, it's a common that sees play in every format. As far as the sideboard goes pauper is a weird format and it's hard to know what to do when you don't have an idea of the meta. I can however give you ideas for ways to deal with popular decks, notably green stompy and Affinity. Ancient Grudge is probably pauper's best card to deal with affinity, and you also have access to Gorilla Shaman. Relic of Progenitus is a nice one of in pauper because of the format being somewhat unpredictable especially in casual metas. Electrickery is also pretty good against an elf focused green stompy deck. Other than that you want Negate and Dispel for control matchups and U/B mill. Hope this helps.

Also, so you know some of the cards above show up as uncommon but they were printed as commons in the past so they are legal.

Vandalblast can really shut down people in one spell, although it is not a creature, like Viashino Heretic, Manglehorn and Gorilla Shaman. Ambush Viper is an instant speed creature removal spell that Ruric ignores, same with Bogardan Hellkite. Bloodrush cards like Ghor-Clan Rampager, Rubblehulk and Wrecking Ogre are also instant speed tricks. Dwarven Miner & Dwarven Blastminer are good at what they do. Cheers!!

+1 Upvote. It's hard to argue with what's going on here to be honest. The only thing that does not settle is perhaps a bit better on the mana fixing, maybe add in 2 Evolving Wilds to help keep things consistent.

Sideboard options could be : Pulse of Murasa, Electrickery, Gorilla Shaman, Ancient Grudge, Relic of Progenitus, Tranquility, or Spidersilk Armor to name a few.
