Neglected Heirloom Discussion
1 day ago
I think I would cut 2 plains. 20 lands is plenty for this curve, maybe even go to 18 or 19.
Artifacts to consider: Stoneforge Masterwork (you have a bunch of Humans), Neglected Heirloom Flip (for your flip cards) and Slayer's Plate.

Thank you for the card suggestions. A few that I'm not familiar with. Some I just recently acquired, but I haven't had a chance to update my deck yet.
What I'm doing with this deck is using the clerics to produce tokens and gain life. In some cases, such as Profane Prayers, use the number of clerics to do direct damage. The design of this deck does work, it's just a little slow. Which is why I asked for suggestions to make it faster. And what you said about cards being pricey, that is why I'm looking for alternatives. If I had the extra cash to spend I would have Gilded Lotus and Lotus Vale in my deck already.
There are cards that I could easily replace (such as Accursed Witch Flip), but for the most part, the creatures I've chosen were chosen because of how they work or their power/toughness vs mana cost. An example, you suggested Fiend Hunter over Avacynian Missionaries Flip. Well, for one mana more than what Fiend Hunter costs Avacynian Missionaries Flip starts as a 3/3 and after transforming becomes a 4/4, then you get to add on the bonuses of the equipment. And if you have Neglected Heirloom Flip (I know it isn't listed in my deck, but I plan on putting it in at some point) equipped on it, that bonus increases.
In this case, the mana cost reduction cards, would come in handy, and would work well with Edgewalker, which is already in my deck.
I am definitely going to look into some of the other cards you suggested. I liked the options they offered.

I like where you are going with this but it needs some work. First off 30 lands is a crazy amount even for your curve. You could probably be OK with 24 maybe 25 max. Might want to look into some of the dual lands like Inspiring Vantage or Needle Spires to help with your mana fixing. Also, I see you are running Avacynian Missionaries Flip which is a good card if you are running equipment cards like Cathar's Shield, Bone Saw, Neglected Heirloom Flip or Elbrus, the Binding Blade Flip but otherwise it is a lackluster card on its own. You have a lot of creatures at 4 converted mana cost you may want to look at cutting 1 or 2 of them and throwing in some 3-drop spells. I would suggest Thalia, Heretic Cathar as her ability causes your opponent's creatures to enter tapped and buy you those early-game turns that you will desperately need to bring out your big guys. Other than that pretty solid deck. White has some good removal too in Declaration in Stone and Immolating Glare. Cheers mate!

Why remove these cards?
They're expensive to cast or aren't worth the white splash. The deck needs to be aggressive and flood the board with creatures. You need to punish people for not playing cards on their turn and holding up counterspells or removal, so "no spells -> flip" Werewolves will get under combo and control better than midrange beatdown right now. Waxing Moon is a trap - playing mediocre cards because you can "cheat out" a flip is a poor two-card combo no matter how flexible it is. Precise Strike is tough to remove but we aren't at Red-Deck-Wins aggro, plus we needed room for removal spells.
Why add these cards?
Removing splash lands for on-color Cinder Glade (which can still be revealed for Game Trail - it has basic land types!) These are more valuable creatures that are irreplacable in the deck. Added combat tricks that also get around removal, because everyone and their grandmother are going to be running either Shock or Walking Ballista.
Mix of cards to help deal with threats or tune the deck to be more aggressive or more defensive. Like, you can cut two lands and two 4-5 drops to bring in Village Messenger Flip if your opponent wants to play slow. Something like Natural Obsolescence gets rid of problems like Aethersphere Harvester or Torrential Gearhulk. Or if you go up against BG Constrictor (plays Winding Constrictor and a bunch of cards that want +1 counters), Neglected Heirloom Flip can help you get bigger than them.

Neglected Heirloom Flip is actually a solid card in the deck even when it's not flipped, so I don't think i'm removing it. I also wouldn't want to remove an equipment for a card that's only good when you've got equipments. I even like it more than Bone Saw because it helps protect my creatures from burn and helps them survive combat. However Thalia, Heretic Cathar would be an awesome addition! I've noticed her impact on the field first hand when playing R/W vehicles and she definitely would find a home here. Her first strike will also be great when combined with the equipment buffs.
about Cathar's Shield, I don't like playing that card in an aggro shell, it's too expensive to equip and wouldn't have much impact when you did. so it would only function as a way to trigger the "when you have an artifact/equipment" clauses. all the other equipments function in other ways as well so i prefer them by far. and well I've already elaborated why i prefer heirloom over bone saw. now, Captain's Claws is a great card, but for this deck it's also quite expensive, drawing two of them is already hard to curve out, drawing three of them would be disastrous for your speed. that's why intend to keep it to 3 copies so that the probability of such a thing happening is significantly lower.
Reckless Bushwhacker however is another card i like. The deck is already quite aggressive (I finish games T4 quite often) but he would fit right in finding lots of spells that would allow him to surge in. i'm not sure which place he'd take but i think i'll try him out. Since Town Gossipmonger Flip was indeed the slowest one-shot i had, i probably will replace him with 2 Thalia, Heretic Cathars and a Reckless Bushwhacker for starters :p
thank you for the suggestions :D

I love people brewing Boros Equipment decks. Here's my 2 cents for thought.
Rip out Town Gossipmonger Flip and get some Thalia, Heretic Cathar to replace it as a 2-3 of, or even Authority of the Consuls. These 2 cards serve a real point in this deck - To prevent potential blockers being able to block.
Rip out Neglected Heirloom Flip. It's a solid artifact sure if you're running enough flip creatures to reliably get it flipped in 1-2 turns, but since I've already suggested removing Town Gossipmonger, then the sword has no way to flip and becomes wasted slots. This frees up room for that Sigarda's Aid that has been mentioned several times.
With both Town Gossipmonger and Neglected Heirloom gone, and the other cards added in, there still should be a couple of slots left open. This was done deliberately to leave room for more equipment. Another Captain's Claws, some Cathar's Shield, maybe even more Bone Saw. If these don't interest you then why not consider Reckless Bushwhacker? It can create a surprise win very early.
