Honored Crop-Captain Discussion

If you're planning to curve out at 2, you should cut lands to reduce the number of dead topdecks. I also think your creature count is a bit low; Honored Crop-Captain is a pretty good choice.

Seconding the thoughts that the deck right now is too all over the place. The cards I'd include as full playsets are:
- Glory-Bound Initiate
- Honored Crop-Captain
- Lightning Strike (you don't have them now, but you should)
- Gust Walker
- Ahn-Crop Crasher
- Cartouche of Solidarity (I like this better than the other one)
And then some number of:
- Oketra's Monument (really sweet in aggressive decks)
- Bloodlust Inciter
- Combat Celebrant
- Devoted Crop-Mate
- And not to forget your Gideons.
Hope this helps!

I'm going to attempt to fix my sideboard to represent what I would actually use.
Let me know what you think once I fix the deck.

Hey so the list certainly has changed, with that said there are a few cards I don't particularly like (not saying they shouldn't be here but from a personal standpoint they are not worth it in my opinion).
Honored Crop-Captain is first and foremost on that list. The effect seems nice however in practice it feels underwhelming in my opinion, especially considering there are better things to be doing turn two.
Before I get into all that however I feel like the deck needs to be given a re-defined identity:
Boros Reckoner is a powerful effect and an aggressive card however it works best with cards like Blasphemous Act to deal massive damage, and really is a different deck entirely. Your deck is not really set up to support it in this way and as such, though a good aggressive card, it feels like it isn't reaching it's full potential.
The number of burn spells also demands note. 13 Dedicated burn spells and 15 total is high for a creature based agro deck. All four Magma Jet and, in my opinion, 1 Lightning Helix are surplus to requirements in the list's current composition. With this said the list could easily be transformed into something that more closely resembles a burn deck by adding more burn spells like Boros Charm and Rift Bolt (and replacing Magma Jet with Lava Spike eventually). Playing burn also means the amount of creatures would fall to a small number of core creatures, notably Monastery Swiftspear, Goblin Guide (or basically any haste one drop you have lying around Guide is just the ideal card), and Eidolon of the Great Revel (personally don't feel this card would be necessary especially given its absurd price). If you stick with the high number of spells then Monastery Swiftspear is a great include, otherwise I would cut a few for some more creatures and if possible at least one more Path to Exile.
The other more outlandish identity this deck could take on is Jeskai delver/tempo. Currently you have Skyknight Legionnaire (which regardless of what you do I would recommend upping unless you go jeskai as evasion is always valuable especially on a hasty threat) however this card is pretty much a strictly worse Mantis Rider. If you stay in Boros then Legionnaire is fine but Mantis Rider and some other cards make jeskai tempo an interesting prospect. The possible cards in question are: Delver of Secrets Flip, Mantis Rider, Spell Queller, Mausoleum Wanderer, possibly Young Pyromancer, Geist of Saint Traft (personally believe this card lends itself more to control than tempo but worth mentioning) and then a number of smaller cards like Remand and Serum Visions/Opt for more interaction. Jeskai agro could be an interesting deck however as boros the deck stays fast and doesn't have to worry about a three colour mana base.
Other than that the most definitive thing I can say is to cut the Firstblades they are decent for a turn and then just below curve dorks, Legionnaire can replace them.
As for the sideboard, to help you the most I need to know what decks you are playing on a regular basis. Right now your sideboard is more like cards that didn't fit. Ideally you want it to be a place where you have cards that hate on other decks.

Thank you Kizmetto, so 4x Mayor?
Testing the deck, with Collected Company, if I reveal Lightning Mauler with Voltaic Brawler (or Honored Crop-Captain), I attack for 6 damage. Instead, with Mayor I attack for 4 damage.
I'll try the Mayor, if the attack will be better I'll add! Thank you.
Have you play this deck?
