oddly enough, if memory serves, rebels were the issue for that block for one simple reason - they tutored UP in mana cost - Ramosian Sergeant costs 1, and tutors for a 2 drop for 3 mana. the mercenaries, on the other hand, worked in the opposite direction - they pulled out a card of lower converted mana cost, but at the regular cost of the card (see Cateran Persuader for an example).

while the rebels dominated the block, the mercs were underwhelming, to say the least. without a leader, they were largely curb-stomped into oblivion. heck, mercs have actually been printed OUT OF MASKS BLOCK because of this. arguably the best mercenary came out in onslaught as Doomed Necromancer, and wasn't even a merc at the time.

that said, because of the tutor mechanics putting them directly into play (as opposed to hand, top of deck, graveyard, or anywhere else, really), I doubt we will ever see any compeditive cards with either creature type, but you never know. of the two, I have my money on the mercs.

Thanks for your feedback! I chose Brainstorm because of the amount of tutors, individually weak cards and shuffle effects (17). So you can consistently shuffle away unneeded cards like multiple copies of Ramosian Sergeant or even Amoeboid Changeling, that you can tutor up anyway.

In my extremely casual test games Brainstorm worked pretty good. I almost never got locked. But I didn't really test it against good pauper decks or anything.

I can imagine that your suggestions would make the deck more competitive. If you do it, you could also kick out some shuffle lands and add four copies of Tranquil Cove and upgrade the mana base.

Ramosian Sergeant; most of your rebels are under 2 mana; they're more efficient and you can start searching with them a turn earlier than you could otherwise.
