Obviously a playset of Monastery Swiftspear. Those with Gitaxian Probe T1 are just super aggressive. Probe is good with Young Pyromancer too :)

I like the Boros removal suite (maybe +1 Wrath of God?), plus Chord, plus finishers. Could be pretty good. Some other ideas, though:

Idk about Firewalker. You might find some Timely Reinforcements more useful in this deck, or some combination of Young Pyromancer and Auriok Champion. Maybe even go Thragtusk over Wurm, and chuck in a Restoration Angel. I also don't quite get the 4 mainboard relics over Scavenging Ooze. So maybe I'd try this:

-4 Firewalker, -4 Relic, -2 Wurm, +2 Thragtusk, +3 ScOoze, +1 Angel, +3 Reinforcements, +1 Chord?

You get more consistent lifegain, you maintain grave hate, maintain the Wurm's replacement trick to some extent, get some tokens to help you cast Chord.

Just throwing some stuff out there. Good luck in any case.

DarkKitten, thanks, I'll be ripping off the Young Pyromancers and possibly side boarding Guttersnipes. I don't want to splash any colors yet though, trying to keep it monored for as long as possible

Here's the thing. Cards that require you to continually invest large amounts of resources are generally bad in efficient formats. Pack Rat demands enormous investment, and it's highly vulnerable. Sure, Young Pyromancer also dies to Lightning Bolt, but Young Pyromancer passively rewards you for playing your deck whereas Pack Rat requires you to stop playing your deck and start paying increments of . And the return on investment is simply too low.

By all metrics it is an amazing card. Hold up mana for a counterspell, turn late game lands into creatures, and more importantly a win con that must be dealt with. Sure it dies to bolt, but so does Young Pyromancer. Is Pack Rat just a bomb without a home? Or am I missing something?

Would red be better than black for this deck so you could run Young Pyromancer and have a consistent token generator in play? It seems like you rely on having those tokens for a win-con but only having 4 cards that do this seems very inconsistent.

Flood the board with dudes? Young Pyromancer

Extra burn? Guttersnipe

A GP and win? Top 8? You'll want to consider putting more money into the deck and possibly a second colour. Modern doesn't possess enough tools for your typical Control deck. If you want to play a tempo deck, then I suggest going red and picking up some a set Young Pyromancer.

Tempo is sort of like control, but has a far more aggressive game plan. The idea behind tempo is to disrupt the board and your opponent's plays and then lay into them with a swarm of tokens or a flipped delver.

I can draw you up a budget list if you want.

Power / Toughness 2/1
