So far, Savage Swipe seems like the best of the bunch in a creature based deck. But, being Sorcery speed limits choices a bit.

Hornet Sting and Gut Shot seem underwhelming. Not sure there is a place for them in the deck when they cannot even kill Goblin Guide.

I think Dismember is rising in my notes because of the lifegain spells I am adding, but still feeling sad that I need to pay 4 life for it. It does hit Eldrazi though.

Beast Within, Garruk Relentless  Flip, maybe Savage Swipe???

Other great 1 cmc options inclue Hornet Sting and Gut Shot.

Not exactly the best of the bunch :/

I don't know, maybe Lava Dart or Gut Shot to get more value from swiftspear and steamkin.

I'd play a lot more instants: Brainstorm , Lightning Bolt (if you can get them), Titan's Strength , or just more Opt and Shock and Storm Strike . Attacking with prowess creatures and leaving mana up makes it a lot harder for your opponent to block, and a lot of the time they won't.

Pauper also has access to several free spells. Gitaxian Probe and Mutagenic Growth are the two best ones for this deck, but there's also Gut Shot .

have you considered running Gut Shot instead of bolt?

Hmm... No. It might work over Flame Slash , Lightning Axe , or Magmatic Sinkhole in metas with lots of planeswalkers (if I ran 4 Lightning Bolt ). Hitting faces is nice, because it doesn't require targets. But I'm fine targeting creatures. Gut Shot and Lava Dart both help you cast an extra spell each to trigger a Phoenix or a Thing in the Ice  Flip, and help facilitate the turn 3 opening. I'm not sure which is better, but I'm leaning on Gut Shot on account of phyrexian mana.

Would Lava Spike be better over Lava Dart and Gut Shot
