It That Rides as One Discussion

I had quite a long breakdown typed up but the site ate it. In hindsight, this should be more comprehenisble.
Long story short, Monocolour will be cheapest and most stable. I'll steer you away from control, as in control you tend to see a lot of the deck, which means that any 'weak link' cards show up and lose you games, combined with control's bad place in the meta its not super efficient.
Budget Plow Under/Acidic Slime/Brutalizer Exarch is great if you have access to ramp and don't mind your opponnents hating you, Teir 1 Landloss' reliance on Blood Moon does mean you'll need a heavy variant. U fearie tempo is playable- Quickling and Spellstutter Sprite with Familiar's Ruse and cheaper etb, as well as some shenanigans with Pestermite/Deceiver Exarch. The key cards that make full faeries good and controlly, Cryptic Command and Vendilion Clique are pricy as all hell though, meaning your deck will have to fit into a different neiche, likely tempo. I'll reccomend mono red 'just spam hasty creatures' for aggro, or Hunted Horror(for leyline) with a mono black list for midrange. Duress covers for a lot of gaps. Boggles is tricky as the value is spread across a lot of cards. A similar setup running heroic triggers and fragile but strong/growing creatures with Vines of Vastwood/Blossoming Defense/Heroic Intervention will likely be your best bet. Ajani's Pridemate/Voracious Wurm/It That Rides as One Flip type cards. It will be slower as you'll need the mana for protection, so bear that in mind.
Silhana Ledgewalker/Gladecover Scout/Slippery Bogle/Invisible Stalker is pretty cheap, the trick is making them pump out the damage without the dumb enchantments or the protection of totem armour. You might manage that with a dumb interaction like Dictate of the Twin Gods, or just counterspells and Banshee's Blade type threat growing.
I enjoy building decks more than I enjoy playing, honestly, so If you let me know what sort of deck you want to emulate, I'll see what I can dredge up to support it. If you can figure out 3-4 cards you want to play every game, thats most of the deck already there.

Pretty decent, my friend.
Sideboard needs more removal for creature heavy decks.
I like the idea, typical aggro deck, but the current meta needs a little variety (depending on your LGS or friends of course). I would throw in a few more creatures that costs 2 - 3 mana, at least in to the sideboard.
I like it.

I know you are looking for splashy creatures but Akroma's Memorial makes even a germ splashy. Odric, Lunarch Marshal and Concerted Effort this would simply be a good idea for what you want. Domri Rade ult can also make lowly germs splashy.

Yeah, there's multiple approaches, and I'm still adjusting my lifegain deck as to whether to include, and how many of Chalice of Life Flip, Aetherflux Reservoir, or Felidar Sovereign to include as alternate win conditions besides Serra Ascendant and It That Rides as One Flip. But I figured I'd bring them to his attention and let him decide if they work for him, since it's pretty complicated to decide what the best option(s) are.

Personally, I very much like Lone Rider Flip and It That Rides as One Flip. It's just a great budget card, not only in mono-white, but in Orzhov-Odric and Boros-Aggro. If you want my take on it, though, I don't think that with this deck it would be good. There's not enough Westvale Abbeys to use properly the Hanweir Militia Captain Flip's flipped ability correctly, imo, and not enough lifelink/lifegain. Another thing that messes me up a bit, you don't have any madness output, but there's a lot of Madness cards in your deck... If you were playing full-on Orzhov, then it would make sense to play Alms of the Vein and Call the Bloodline, but really you're just losing some potential synergy I think. Now, how do you fix that ? Well, some very good cards that I like in standard right now are Harsh Scrutiny, and Chaplain's Blessing. You can remove creatures from your opponent's hand really fast, and disrupt their game, or heal yourself for five to flip Lone Rider Flip.
Anyways, best of luck mate !
