I think I went to far into black and it ended up making the deck worse. Going to give it a try going back more to the core of WWb.
3-1 again at FNM, good for X-1 and prizes. Added Thrill-Kill Assassin and the deck runs really smoothly! Only loss was to a nut draw from a weird RG hexproof deck.
Beat Mono U x2 and Mono B. Sole loss was to Boros Burn because I wasn't quite sure it was a burn deck until I was dead.
First FNM with this deck went 3-0-1, drawing into top4 because $$'s. Also because beating WW/r, RDW, and a drunk guy playing Red Devotion like a dumbass made me more than happy to just head home early.
So while I didn't really play any of the top decks in the format (WW/r was not optimized) the deck feels really strong. I just wish there was a better 1 drop to play than Boros Elite because I never feel good running them out.
perhaps add Cavalry Pegasus to give all your humans flying?

Rootborn Defenses for populating and pro supreme verdict and other board wipes.

That it doesn't, I meant destroy board-wipes, ex supreme verdict, gaze of granite, and so on. Guess you better get that turn 3 spear of heliod out there and try to keep it from killing you

maybe a Pain Seer for card draw? and Doom Blade or Ultimate Price for removal? Now you don't have protection from regular removal but I'm guessing that not as scary as Drown in Sorrow since you have Xathrid Necromancer . Perhaps a Gift of Orzhova for evasion and some lifelink?

The problem with Pain Seer is that if you drop it turn 2 you maybe get an extra card turn 4 if it doesn't get blocked/removed. Precinct Captain is just more powerful and Imposing Sovereign allows you to get a couple more attacks through, so I'm not sure about Pain Seer in the 2 spot.
The debate is really between more removal or some way to protect my dudes instead of Brave the Elements .

Please continue to post results, I literally was thinking of running a list similar to this but with less lands a fabled hero and some buffs etc..

I have thought about Tormented Hero , but the issue is that having a white 1 drop is just better since I really want to be able to play Precinct Captain at WW on 2. There's enough plains that this almost always happens, and I find that with nothing to target Tormented Hero it's just kind of awkward.

Dutiful Thrull could have his place as an early one drop stopper. :P

I actually have no interest in blocking most of the time
