Creature — Human Soldier
Whenever Hanweir Garrison attacks, put two 1/1 red Human creature tokens onto the battlefield tapped and attacking.

Hanweir Garrison Discussion

After playtesting my R/W human aggro deck I found Mimic seems weird in it's slot. Of course, it takes from other vital 2CC creatures. Particularly with humans cuz it kinda has a 2CC lord, Thalia's Lieutenant.
I liked it with red cuz 3rd turn 3/4 Hanweir Garrison is what I was looking for. It's also taken your Lone Rider Flip spot, which sux. I just love the guy! If not running Rider it seems like Blessed Alliance could get cut or reduced for more value/vehicle creatures, spot removal, or even Always Watching looks good.

I am actually thinking that the copter might be replaced by Metallic Mimic, Selfless Spirit, or Aethersphere Harvester. With Spirit and Mimic, I can keep the card slot at 2 cmc and have either a strong utility flier or another human synergy card that causes Hanweir Garrison and Thalia's Lieutenant to be even stronger (misread mimic, he does place counters even if they don't start with one). The Harvester is a nice new vehicle I am considering because it brings enough energy to power its lifelink for 2 turns, has good stats, and (like copter) has a crew requirement of only 1. I am currently leaning towards the mimic because the cost($) of card will be cheaper and fits the human theme well, but I think the spirit will benefit the deck more. Still more to consider before I make the final decision.
Sorry Kataclysm about the misread and turn down of mimic at first. Now that I have read him properly I see him as a good options for the deck. As for the Thalia suggestion, I have been trying to get her for a while but the stores I go to have been sold out of her for months. I would like 2 copies for the side or even possible to get in the main.
Currently looking at the side and thinking I need to make some serious tweaks to get ready for ceratin decks and combos. Currently the deck has no answer for the Saheeli Rai/Felidar Guardian combo and I know the people at my shop are already jumping on the idea of using this trick. My plans for countering it will be Thalia, Shock, and Authority of the Consuls. Thalia and consuls stop it the combo in the same way by tapping the creatures as they enter denying them an attack. Consuls takes it a step further by making sure they don't use an untap card and still kill me, because I will gain 1 life for each creature they bring in. The card shock can interrupt the combo as they start it to kill Saheeli as she activates to spawn the first token. These cards being brought into deck still need some time to decide what might make it to main deck or which card to replace in the side. Cards on the potential cut list are Lithomancer's Focus, Repel the Abominable, Skywhaler's Shot.
Feel free to let me know what you think about these ideas. All comments and suggestion are welcomed. Actual deck changes to main deck coming next week since we have one more FNM to enjoy our copters. Kinda glad to see them go but sad since I just got the number I liked in deck.

Lilbrudder: Hey! That card is 50 cents. Why are you telling people about it?
I've been saying this is great card for years. Nobody's listened to me, and I'd rather keep it that way. ;)
thegigibeast: Hope of Ghirapur is definitely going in Edric. (That really should have been the first thing I thought of, actually.) The fact that you don't need to tie up blue mana to cast it makes it strictly better than your average flying men, even if you don't plan on using the ability often.
After browsing the interwebs, it seems it's also great in Alesha, Feldon, and Ayli.
In other news, our cycle of mono-colored legends is complete with Kari Zev, Skyship Raider:
Who will be relegated straight to T5. Her expertise card is pretty lackluster as well. Sad, I always try to be optimistic about new mono-red commanders, and Pia was such a disappointment as a card...
There hasn't been that much else worthwhile in the spoilers, but what do people this of Lifecrafter's Bestiary as a green draw engine? Seems super good to move through your deck in builds like Seton, Krosan Protector, Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro (How have we STILL not moved this up to T3?!?!?!), and Rishkar, Peema Renegade, and it might have potential in creature based competitive decks like Momir Vig and Animar.
NarejED, I'd vote against demoting Darevi just based on other T1 commanders out-playing her. T1 commanders are supposed to be able to play around each other, they're the best of the best. There's always going to be a low and a high within the tier. If we can find evidence of a significant portion of the T2 commanders being able to outperform her consistently, then it's probably time to demote her, but until then it wont really make or break anything if she stays in T1.
I think Nin might be my new favorite home for Paradox Engine.
Previously, Nin's path to victory involved tutoring up the two card Rings of Brighthearth + Basalt Monolith combo, then using the infinite mana with Nin to draw your deck. With the addition of Paradox Engine however, all you need to do is tutor up the engine and have enough mana rocks to storm through your deck, significantly lowering the combo complexity.
The deck I linked isn't quite optimized, but it's good as proof of concept, and I'm going to make my own version over the next couple of days.

I'm sure you've thought of Lightning Bolt.
Oh and I could never leave out my homegirl Monastery Swiftspear.

So boros tokens is a relatively popular deck, and it has so many options on how to build around it. you can go full tokens with a playset of rabblemaster, Servo Exhibition, Raise the Alarm, Secure the Wastes, Wingmate Roc, Angel of Invention, Hanweir Garrison, Impact Tremors, then throw in some way to pump them and/or give them haste. The big thing is to get rid of the cards that don't have synergy with the strategy, like Seeker of the Way and Goblin Heelcutter, as they aren't that great in any environment.
