@feightj1 thanks for that reminder - after rereading the rules for fuse cards and casting spells "without paying their mana costs", you are indeed correct. i have immediately replaced Thalia, Guardian of Thraben with Wrath of God and Oblivion Ring for added removal

Just a note: if you sideboard in Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, then not only will you have to pay 1 extra for Sram's Expertise but also for Beck.

To be honest; I think the only card not really fitting in at the moment is Thalia, Guardian of Thraben. I know why you put her in that place, because I once made a deck with her as a two-of, too. Hell, I played ~10 3CMC enchantments. You got it somehow better (Path to Exile) and worse (Assemble the Legion). She just does not work the best, if she is not a four-of and if that would not be enough she could slow down your anthem-effects as well as Planeswalker. Cut her, would be my tip.

You should also give it a thought, if you really want to have a six CMC slot. If you draw such a card early it is potentially dead and has to be backbreaking, if you get to the point, where you can play it.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion would be a good and fitting replacement for Captain of the Watch. You my not get the anthem from her, but a continous stream of three 1/1 soldier tokens with an added wrath effect, that only destroys creatures with power three or greater. In short, bodies to protect you, kills things out of reach from Lightning Helix and Ajani Vengeant and has an ultimate, that could gives a weenie deck a prime position to end the game.

Should you not want a 6CMC slot try to go for Precinct Captain to support your damn fine and upstanding man Tajic, Blade of the Legion.

some cards to consider:

Lightning Bolt Path to Exile

Collateral Damage(since you have plenty of tokens to throw around) or Goblin Grenade since its pretty goblin heavy.

maybe Thalia, Guardian of Thraben for some hate

Impact Tremors since you have a lot of little dudes coming in quickly.Intangible Virtue for all those tokens

wyatt0781, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is actually really good in almost every matchup you could have in modern provided you are affected less by it than your opponent, which with 10 noncreature spells in the mainboard that will usually be the case. Delaying board wipes and removal or their gameplan by a turn gives you a turn to get in for more damage.

I'm running Funeral Charm as both removal and discard, it can wreck someone's turn by making them discard whatever they just drew (assuming their hand is empty) or it can murder little creatures like that witch Thalia, Guardian of Thraben.

Ooh, I like Lost Legacy. I might have to add that; it's like a budget Surgical Extraction! (sort of)

I was going to try Grasp of Darkness but it costs more than I'm willing to pay at the moment.

Liliana's Specter is a bit high on mana cost for the deck, at 20 lands the only thing I'd be willing to run that costs is Liliana of the Veil, Lost Legacy, (maybe) or Necrogen Mists. (two of which are out of my $60 budget at the moment)
