Interesting choice of colors I think I see what you are trying to do but I don't think Sightless Brawler helps.

Cards I recommend for mainboard!


Brimaz, King of Oreskos He will bring tokens to block/attack w/ and first strike won't hurt him one bit !

Collected Company most of your cards are 3 cost or so this card will bring them out a turn or 2 early and acts as a way to cycle your deck along if you are in a land hole!

Iroas, God of Victory Interesting turn for you deck making your opponent unable to block and kill but still leaves you open to burn which will bring trouble !

Eidolon of Countless Battles or Hopeful Eidolon may help more then Borderland Marauder or Firedrinker Satyr

Spear of Heliod a great card that is cheap as can be right now it will make your opponent think twice before attacking buffs your creatures!

SideBoard Ideas:

Yasova Dragonclaw She may be good if your game is going to go on for a long time so late game you can sneak a couple hits in killing your opponents monster!

Godsend get out those annoying dragons!

Zz94 Glacial fortress is nice, but I want to keep this deck as budget as possible. Sejiri Refuge is identical to Tranquil Cove. Ethereal Armor + Hopeful Eidolon is a great aggro combination, and the life gain is huge, but it simply doesn't fit the unblockable Sunbonded spirit theme of the deck, although that's really powerful.

DHWorlds Lone Revenant is nice, but it lacks evasion. Bolt-proof body, great effect, but that's not what I need for 5 mana; remember that the purpose of the deck is to gain huge amounts of life to create superpowered creatures.

Thank you for the suggestions! Right now, my main issues are if Latch Seeker is what I need to pump, or there's something better, and if I should add some draw engine for the late game.

I thought about Stratus Walk... Then figured that half my creatures were already fliers anyway... so I wasn't sure the ROI was that much on it.

I do agree that Cancel is going to cut up a lot of my available mana, but against RDW, they're going to be lighting me up (pun intended) with Lightning Strikes and other burn spells, so I wanted to have some brand of protection in the deck... not sure what else I could use instead.

The Nyxborn Shieldmates are kind of annoying me... I'm thinking about swapping them out for Hopeful Eidolons to capture the lifelink bonus...

You need to put some 1 drop creatures back in. Definitely 4 Favored Hoplite should be in here. If you didn't like him for some reason, maybe try out Nyxborn Shieldmate and Hopeful Eidolon? I know that they are bad, but that was all I could think of.

I agree with misterbiscuitbarrel's suggestions. Sage's Reverie would be a really nice finisher. Eidolon of Countless Battles would also be really good.

Anyway, this deck seems like it is fun, so +1!

Akroan Crusader, Dragon Hunter, Favored Hoplite, Firedrinker Satyr, Frenzied Goblin, Hopeful Eidolon, Kolaghan Stormsinger, Lightning Berserker, Mardu Woe-Reaper, Monastery Swiftspear, Soldier of the Pantheon, Zurgo Bellstriker.

All the somewhat decent 1 drops in R/W standard til the set after Origins. Decent 1 drop backup spells as well.Gods Willing, Hammerhand, Chained to the Rocks, Titan's Strength, Wild Slash.

Also with Raise the Alarm and Dragon Fodder and all the other efficient token producing spells seems like this could be something.

you might want to try Lotus-Eye Mystics to return enchantments that were killed. Also, some bestow stuff like Hopeful Eidolon.

Yes totally, I considered it when I saw it in a binder... I haven't had a creature problem yet though,having a 7/7 was common before I sided the leylines, the paths and cut the Hopeful Eidolons. I really want to avoid adding green for the hexproof...

Ah i can see that combo, well the first creature that comes to mind is Vampire Nighthawk but he doesnt exactly match your colors. There is Seraph of Dawn who is at exactly 4 that might work. Other good creatures though are Soul Warden who will gain you lots of life, maybe not 4 a turn but the trigger resolves quite a bit, and Centaur Healer can get you almost there. Hopeful Eidolon could work too, as an early game attacker or late game enchantment. also Chalice of Life  Flip can be a good time if you can get up.
