Lone Rider Discussion

I thought for a while and these are what I would recommend based on your situation: +1 Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Gisela, the Broken Blade, Blessed Alliance, Declaration in Stone, Stasis Snare, Captain's Claws, & Thraben Inspector. Keep Authority of the Consuls where it is. Take out everything else.
I think about now you are starting to think I'm a bit crazy but hear me out. I'm assuming from the comments that you had Lone Rider Flip in at some point, I think it is a great card and should be playing it. I would play it at the full 4 copies but I can also understand if you only want to play 3. +3 Always Watching , Metallic Mimic and +2 of Bruna, the Fading Light, Fumigate and Thalia's Lieutenant (Personally I would go 3 lone rider and 3 lieutenant but I doubt you have 3 lieutenant's laying around, so I made a budget decision).
After those changes, the deck would look like: 4x Thraben Inspector 2x Authority of the Consuls 4x Lone Rider Flip 2x Thalia's Lieutenant 3x Metallic Mimic 2x Declaration in Stone 3x Blessed Alliance 3x Captain's Claws 3x Thalia, Heretic Cathar 3x Always Watching 3x Stasis Snare 2x Gisela, the Broken Blade 2x Bruna, the Fading Light
And about 22 lands. I personally would go 20 plains and 2 Westvale Abbey Flip but that's just me. It's a bit more expensive than your current build but I'm sure that it would work better. It has threats, it has late game and early game interaction and it should be able to give you a few unexpected wins. Sideboard I can't help you with though, which you would have to seriously think about because I'm pretty sure this deck dies to a well setup Walking Ballista. So what do you think?

Here are a few thoughts. Please take them with healthy skepticism though, as I VERY rarely play BW!
First, I think your mana curve looks really awkward. That many 3-drops means the deck is going to be really slow, and that's kind of a recipe for getting crushed in the current super-fast meta. I think you either need to add a TON more control (so you can survive long enough to cast and then swing with a couple Dwarves, plus Ordic), or a TON more one- and two-drops (do you can have a bunch of dudes on the field and then make them super-powered when Odric finally gets there).
I know you love the Dwarves, and the Control route is probably the best way to keep them all, but that's going to be very expensive, as you'd probably want to add 3x Fatal Push and 4x Grasp of Darkness just for starters.
So maybe look at adding some inexpensive one-and two-drops with useful keywords? I'd also recommend and empasis on Deathtouch, as it seems to be especially powerful in a world of HUGE BG Creatures. And with this kind of scheme I'd seriously aim for at least 24 Creatures, and maybe as high as 28.
Some cards to consider ...
- Gifted Aetherborn, Lone Rider Flip, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Rancid Rats, Vampire Cutthroat, Indulgent Aristocrat (partly because of the Lifelink, but also b/c you might be able to get some Vampire tribal going), Relentless Dead, Glint-Sleeve Siphoner,
- Gryff's Boon, Always Watching , Duress, and Transgress the Mind are also really good, if you can find the room or if you already have some available.
- Selfless Spirit would be awesome, but it's still really pricey :-(
Good luck (and good skill) on the build!

It's a cute concept, but the Chalice is simply gratuitous. You're going to get it up and running by turn 4 at the earliest, at which point it's still a 4-turn clock. That's without even getting to all the artifact hate in Modern, or the fact that running so few creatures really makes the Soul Sisters themselves much less effective. Would replace with Lone Rider Flip.

Seeker of the Way seems out of place, since you only have 4 non-creature spells. Hamlet Captain would likely fit better. Always Watching could also help in flipping your Lone Rider Flips and keeping you on the attack.

I had considering cutting both for Lone Rider Flip and Thalia's Lieutenant (4 Thalia, 3 Riders), but the lifegain from Maytr is really helpful. It's not uncommon to get 12-15 life from it. But I'm not sure if that's good enough right now.
It would make the burn matchup worse, better versus infect, might help versus tron?
Either way, I think the cards are cheap enough that it justifies buying them both, whether or not you put them in is more of a meta game call.
