Said on Boros Rage...

Bonesplitter is still the best equipment in Pauper by a long shot. It's definitely worth being in here as a 4-of. It will be better than Golem-Skin Gauntlets most of the time.

I think Training Drone will be too slow and easily blocked/killed. Having some sort of evasion naturally is going to be a big help. I would cut Ardent Recruit for the same reasons.

Vault Skirge has flying and also has lifelink, making it very good at racing against aggro decks. It's also pretty effective against Burn if you can protect it.

If you do end up playing Vault Skirge, then Cliffhaven Kitesail won't be as useful for you. In fact, with most of your creatures having trample or flying already, it doesn't feel necessary.

I really like Mutagenic Growth in decks like these because they often protect your creatures against removal and combat tricks without having to use mana. They also double up as extra damage when needed.

Final card I want to mention: Temur Battle Rage or Assault Strobe will combo pretty well with all the equipment and Gaveleer / Champion to finish games off quickly.

Hey BOXES_O_MOXES thanks so much for the great suggestions!

I will definitely be making room for Scaretiller. It would be great to live the dream and get an engine going with Barren Moor, too! It certainly fits the bill as a great creature for Shirei. I think I'll cut Skittering Surveyor for it.

Witch's Cottage is an easy include in this deck. Honestly I haven't updated in over a year until this morning to add Village Rites, so some of of your suggestions of recent cards are just cards I haven't gotten the chance to switch into yet.

Bonder's Ornament should definitely be in here. I think I'll cut Culling the Weak for it.

Thanks again!

masonknop Glad to hear it! What will White get you in particular? The last update that the creator of the deck janicestone made was adding a Red splash. This was years ago, though.

I have not played this deck yet. I was planning on doing a series with it at some point. I have a few videos of me playing against the deck, if you're interested.

Anyways, this list is basically a compilation of all the typical tropes of the archetype. I tried to stay as "traditional" as possible, while also updating for the current card pool.

Hi Legendxp and thanks for the suggestions and thoughts!

The idea here is not necessarily to leverage Tormod to his full potential, but rather build an empty-graveyard scenario that will make Web of Inertia and its ilk playable. I figure he's a good commander for this since I'll be using lots of exiling effects anyways.

If I were to include some self-mill, I would want it to be a lot more "natural", if that makes any sense. I would be interested in cards that loot, for example.
