Target creature gets +3/+1 and gains trample until end of turn. (It can deal excess combat damage to the player or planeswalker it's attacking if lethal combat damage would be dealt to all blocking creatures.)

I thought I just had to run Abrade, I didn't love it but I'm unused to having a SB!
Dumping the Rituals seems fair, they don't work as well without the card draw that I removed from an early iteration.
Grapeshot hasn't been working very well but I'm accustomed to viewing Storm as a mechanic as broken, so I let my preconceived notions overtake my better judgement. Out with it!
Haze has been mediocre, probably fine to cut. That one I'll have to take a slightly longer look at, but should be fine to drop.
The Nexuses have been able to 1-shot K.O with doublestrike spells and pump effects, but since I'm cutting most of those they can be cut. Good call.
I definitely like Fury, but I might need to reconsider my super-secret tech on Twinflame . It's fun to copy a Swiftspear, but probably not good enough. I'll play around with it.
Thanks again for taking the time to help me out a bit!

Looking at your current list, I think you should drop:
Abrade (its a sideboard card, not mainboard, and 2cmc is high for prowess).
Grapeshot (you're not storm, this does nothing for you here).
Haze of Rage (2cmc is high, the effect is average).
Also, i'm not sure why you're running Inkmoth Nexus . This deck is not going to be able to win by infect damage, and its not something that you should be aiming for. With all of your spells requiring red mana, this land could hurt you more than help you (you'd be better off running Mountains instead of these).
I didn't mention Fury of the Horde and Twinflame , as you said you'd really want to include them, and I do think Fury of the Horde at least has a decent chance of being useful as a 1-of in the deck. I do think you're going to have a really hard time making full use of Twinflame , but it shouldn't hurt your deck too much as a 1-of.

Here are some I use, seperated by category:
Other than that, I run some value cards, like Birgi, God of Storytelling Flip, Storm-Kiln Artist , and Aetherflux Reservoir to just go on, and on, and on, and on, so on and so forth. Plenty of Draw Spells to keep the gas going, and some other Spell-slinging accoutrements.

So, here goes:
Centurion just kinda sounds like a CEDH deck, imo lol.
With that being said, most CEDH decks prioritize speed, and that comes at a price; (literally) with plenty of cheap rocks to make sure you have mana/colors at your disposal, you can easily pump out huge damage, relatively cheaply, as far as the cantrips go.
Want easy games? Try this:
Turn 1: Land, 1 Mana Rock
Turn 2: Land, 2 Mana Rock (Maybe Veyran)

Mcat1999 I get your concern, but your first hypothetical effect just showed in Kaldheim for a split-payment , with Behold the Multiverse . Good card, but not exactly tearing up multiple formats. Your second example I would compare to, let's say, Fierce Invocation or the Elvish Rite I just looked up and Brute Strength , with New Rowan out. Not quite as perfect a parallel, but I'm not sure your example is much worse. Your final example involves cheating out a creature, plus two planeswalkers, for Sorin's Vengeance and Syphon Life .
Of course, if they reveal a completely broken low-cost insta-kill Lesson, I retract everything and condemn the design fully. But I'm cautiously optimistic that the Lessons are going to stay fairly clean and healthy. From what I've seen, any potential gains in colorlessness and flexibility are offset by cost and effect size. After all, unless you have New Rowan out, you still have to pay and an opponent's card draw for Utter End .

Yikes. Haven't looked at, updated, or played this deck in forever. Probably never will again, I didn't enjoy it.
God what a mess of a decklist. Don't build token/heroic Feather, you guys, it's messy to play.
CrimsonWings3689 that would definitely be a good add.

I started playing using an Oath of the Gatewatch deck (even though the year was 2019). I got more cards later on to make better decks.
