Scourge of the Throne isn't standard and Skyknight Legionnaire is strictly worse than Chandra's Phoenix

-1 Elspeth, Sun's Champion , With your mana base and creatures, it won't let you run her

+1 Ajani, Caller of the Pride maybe, if you really want to run a planeswalker, can add 2

+/- Hammer of Purphoros not a big fan of this in aggro but can be viable at mid game

-1 Angelic Skirmisher just no

-2 Holy Mantle simply to expensive, granted the protection is nice, but we really dont need that when we intend on winning around turn 5 or less

+3 Ethereal Armor just absolutely amazing, should spam while in standard just great mana and can be viable mid/late game/ also great synergy with Eidolon of Countless Battles (suggest putting more now))

-3 Magma Jet not big fan of this card other then control or sideboard, just really a scry 2 card, which you dont need, will only slow the game down, better removal for red like Mizzium Mortars

+3 Chained to the Rocks 1 mana, exile, granted need to attach to mountain but can be a good turn 2 while still staying aggro and can help late game

-3 Hold at Bay dont need this

+3 Ajani's Presence Titan's Strength Gods Willing id prefer gods willing, just always a nice card but there are other cards you can put in place

-2 Skyknight Legionnaire there are better alternatives to this card, stronger cards but i suggest taking her out

-2Temple of Triumph can only have 4

+4 lands i suggest taking her out for more lands your mana base is really trying to throw a low ball with only 18 lands

-1 Aegis of the Gods giving you hexproof is nice but can really only work well against, Thoughtseize /Duress (put that in sideboard against mono black)

+1 Tajic, Blade of the Legion , you can add another spell or another troop but id like to run him because for flavor purposes, he will be your general, your hero leading your troops to war

-4 Boros Elite trust me when i say this there are a million different cards you can put in her place, Akroan Crusader , Phalanx Leader , Favored Hoplite , Soldier of the Pantheon and more

+4 Fabled Hero , not even a question a must have/run, it will work will with your enchantments and instants, just imagine putting a Madcap Skills on that mother father, 6/3 with double strike

-2 Truefire Paladin , really dont need him for his cost and abilitys

+2 Hero of Iroas JUST YES, LET ME PUT MY F&%KING Madcap Skills FOR ONE MANA

-4 Wojek Halberdiers , he isnt bad but i think you can do alittle better then him

+4 Burning-Tree Emissary /Ash Zealot , this one is personal i like these 2 cards but you dont need them in place of him, in the end its your choice on this one, if you like it keep it but if you even hesitate about it change it

tell me what you think i can give more suggestions

I've tried using Squadron Hawk before and it really didn't work out for me, there were some much better options for me to use, also it is a pointless card if I don't have 4 of them and I simple don't have the room. Also about Skyknight Legionnaire that creature doesn't have "Heroic" so taking out a slot to fit him in probably wouldn't help me.. but thank you for the suggestion. If you have any ideas on what cards I could take out maybe I'll reconsider.

Needs more creatures. Squadron Hawk and Skyknight Legionnaire would be good.

Color is Easy enough: Rancor is easily the most green card I've ever seen Dissolve is blue in a nutshell

Doom Blade is as black as you can get

Soulmender is white all over

Shock is the first red spell anyone names.

Commons and Uncommons that fit each guild? hmm...

I think that either you make this deck all out heroic or not - most of your creatures contribute to this but other do not. Maybe place some of those bigger ones in the sideboard - like the Hundred-Handed One ? Skyknight Legionnaire is a good card but if this deck is heroic then perhaps replace with Akroan Skyguard ? Phalanx Leader is an excellent card, but it requires 2W to cast, and your turn 1 is dominated by Akroan Crusader , which is 1R to cast. Consider that before adding Phalanx Leader .

If you choose to go all out heroic - perhaps use more instants rather than auras to trigger heroic abilities? They're much cheaper to cast and allow you to defend against an onslaught quickly.

Harness by Force or Act of Treason for Portent of Betrayal ?

You may have trouble getting value out of Pyxis of Pandemonium with the current land count.

More Chandra's Phoenix in for Skyknight Legionnaire , same card except there's a ton of value in Phoenix with the amount of burn you're packing.

You may experience trouble activating Battalion with the current creature count.

You're light on creatures in the 1 and 2 mana slots, so you're not going to be explosive in an aggro sense. Opponents may hesitate to block Ash Zealot when they know you have burn. The flying theme is cool, but you may end up needing some of the burn for removal, maybe even as a 2 for 1; Consider Searing Blood to get some value out of the exchange, plus it combos well with Ash Zealot .

WizardInTheWoods on Strength From the Fallen Aggro

I love Strength from the Fallen !

I understand the appeal of Renowned Weaver . She does trigger constellation upon sac. But you will spend G, then 1G more to get there. You don't need a one-drop blocker that costs 1G to activate. That is 1G you could have spent on a wayfinder. Would you keep 2 mana up on T-2 in case opponent attacks with Skyknight Legionnaire or Chandra's Phoenix ?

I suggest you consider running Brain Maggot instead, and yank that annoying flier from their hand altogether. Unlike Weaver, Maggot makes an instant impact. Maggot still triggers mid or late game Strength and keeps your early game aggro timing. Even if they remove it, that's one less removal available, and you get one more swing with a Strength-ed Up, Nighthowler -wearing Nyx Weaver .

So, yeah... Brain Maggot . +1 Price
