Hello, i would recommend you run some Immortal Servitude due you have a lot 1 drop
It can bring creatures back from your graveyard to play, if its neccessary.

I don't really see how the Metalcraft on Galvanic Blast will ever be relevant, so if I where you, I'd just replace it with Lightning Bolt for a consistent extra 1 hit of damage. But I like the deck +1
May 12, 2014 11:55 p.m.
Yeah, I've been thinking on that switch for a bit. Consistency is what we aim for when making a deck, after all. Whenever I do have 3 or more, it's great, but it's not an every game thing, so, with that being said, I think it would best to do that as well. Thanks for the advice and the +1! (+3 Lightning Bolt )

Wow this is awesome! Genesis Chamber plus norin is just an awesome idea. Now I'm rethinking my hole Naya Soulsister deck! Damn! +1

@mateobadajoz2 - I couldn't switch out Dismember unless it were for another, more efficient kill spell. Although, I do like the idea of having a Boros Charm or two. Every bit of that card would be very useful to me, burning for 4, giving a Champion of the Parish or Ajani's Pridemate or even Hero of Bladehold Double Strike, and if my opponent attempts to board wipe or destroy a Genesis Chamber or possibly a land, ALL Permanents I control are Indestructible this turn. Such a relevant card. I may switch one Lightning Bolt and something to make room. Thanks for the suggestion!
@Kiora_Fan-01 - I don't believe I'll ever switch out Ranger of Eos . Later game, that card is what gives me the win or helps me stabilize. The double tutoring card advantage is just too helpful to lose. I've even considered, and somewhat still am considering adding a fourth copy. Thanks for the suggestion! Your input is greatly appreciated!

Nice deck :) I would focus more on Norin the Wary . Skipp Hero of Bladehold Mentor of the Meek and Grim Lavamancer in favor for +1 Dark Confidant , +1 Ajani's Pridemate , +1 Ranger of Eos , +1 Path to Exile , also andother Cavern of Souls is not that bad. The manabase should also favor red, so u can cast Norin the Wary multiple times :)
May 14, 2014 4:22 p.m.
You really only need to cast norin once unless engineered explosives because not even field wipes can touch him. Other than that how has this been faring for you? Does this deck pull wins often? I only ask because i pay a must combo oriented boros version

I like Legion Loyalist in here - maybe over Grim Lavamancer ? loyalist will just win you way more games (all those myr tokens your opponents have can't block). i do like Hero of Bladehold but with so many (4) drops and only 21 lands, you're setting yourself up for some potential "trap" keeps or mulls. i might cut down to just one, myself.
I know you like dismember in here but you could also consider Orzhov Charm . every bit of that card is relevant in this deck- kill, recur a creature from your yard or bounce a ranger back to your hand (or a bob or hero...but ranger is the obvious target).
last suggestion is Bitterblossom . maybe a 3/1 or 2/2 split with Genesis Chamber . at least you don't have to board out bb against Living End decks or tribal decks that run tons of creatures. it also helps to diversify in case of cards like Detention Sphere and Echoing Truth . or Maelstrom Pulse . oh yeah! and they fly!!

@VampireArmy - Actually, I've been having a lot of success with this deck. It seems to do very well against Tron and Twin. As long as we can burn away their Dark Confidant and chump or kill/exile their Tarmogoyf , then we can normally out pace Jund. Storm is rarely a threat, sometimes I get a surprise first game, then second, either have a Path to Exile , Lightning Bolt or the newly added Orzhov Charm , even a Grim Lavamancer ready for Puresteel Paladin or for the R/U version, Rest in Peace usually does the trick. The only thing I have a bit of trouble against is Burn and 8-Rack, though, with 1x Rest in Peace and 2x Leyline of Sanctity I don't have a problem. Also, against 8-Rack, I side in Wear / Tear specifically for Ensnaring Bridge . Can also take out a Shrieking Affliction at the same time.

@Jdvanliew - That's actually what I've been thinking. I'll do some playtesting and see how it goes. Thanks!
@redhowler - I as well like having access to Legion Loyalist , though, I also seem to draw it when I don't need him or would rather have something else. He's wonderful late game with a buffed Champion of the Parish , Ajani's Pridemate or an army of Myr, as you mentioned. I'll do some playtesting with him as a 1-of.
I really do like Bitterblossom with Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant . Most of the time I'll net 1-2 life every upkeep instead of losing any! I've considered it before, but never added it in. I'll give it a try and see how it goes!

I know you dont have green but.... think about this
May 15, 2014 7:59 a.m.
Amazing deck! Love what you've done with nor in; this is the beat nor in deck I've seen. Care to duel sometime against my deck Swarm and Conquer V 2.0 on untap.in sometime? +1 from me!
May 15, 2014 8:13 a.m.
I really love this deck, I'm new into modern and this just seems really fun :) You notice you have 62 cards though right?
May 15, 2014 11:09 a.m.
@xzzane - I wouldn't mind having a little match sometime, though, looking at your deck, I just realized how weak mine is against nearly an all Flying deck. If you had the chance to build up, you would more than likely win the game. After seeing that, I'm considering splashing Green for a couple Gruul Charm and also adding 2 or so Bitterblossom to help combat all the flyers I may face in Token decks such as yours.
May 15, 2014 11:18 a.m.
@agarritano - You actually just caught me switching up my lands a bit, so I had 23 land. Back to 21 now! Haha. :D Also, if you like the look of it, don't forget to playtest it and +1 if you like!
May 15, 2014 11:25 a.m.
Splashing a 3rd color seems rather dangerous myself, but it's your deck! And yeah, my token deck is my pride and joy. I own all the cards, and it has served me really well. When would you want to duel?
May 15, 2014 11:34 a.m.
green splash would make 4 colors. at 21 lands and with a mostly creature aggro strategy, I think it'd only make your deck less consitent. if you think you're weak to tokens, Engineered Explosives for 0 is pretty good. doesn't really hurt you much since your tokens replenish themselves and are primarily just there for etb triggers anyway. lots of token decks run swords too so they'll be reluctant to board in Stony Silence or the like against decks that don't mainboard cards it would be good against.
