lol, seems like you have plenty of good advise
toss another option in the mix Godo, Bandit Warlord with Helm of the Host takes 11 mana to consistent win con

there really is many ways you could go about it but only 1 of them would be good for you i would still suggest
search for mono red cards that have "each opponent" in there text for deck inspiration

Terror of the Peaks might be a decent include. I actually just slotted it into my own Norin brew. I feel like it's strictly better than Warstorm Surge since you can copy it with things like Blade of Selves or Helm of the Host (as the user above suggested).

Plus, if it gets killed, you can get it back from the graveyard with Feldon of the Third Path, unlike enchantments that fill the same niche.

TheBestMagicCard I considered Sunforger but I wanted to try to avoid it for originality and a more casual approach to Boros equipment. Definitely if people want to upgrade stuff id say include it and probably add a couple more instants to the deck. I also considered the Kaldra equipment and maybe should've included them but ended up using my budget on equipment like Bloodforged Battle-Axe and Helm of the Host.

And sorry I guess it wasn't super clear but Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist is a big part of the deck and lets you attach your equipment to target permanent which with Helm of the Host or any other equipment in the deck you could use Ardenn to attach them to your opponents creatures. That's why Captain's Hook was included in the list as some removal. Just some janky stuff. Thanks for the concern though and for the recommendations.

Have you thought about Helm of the Host?. Seems like it would be a good way to get more ETB triggers.

Ramp. X and its reusable. Mana Bloom

Spark Double gives another Zaxara and you make two hydras per spell. Helm of the Host just gets stupid

I would cut Biogenic Upgrade (six mana X spell would give you more counters than that).

I love scarecrows too! Unfortunately when I first built this deck, I built it budget, and not very well (tuned). So thank you for the ideas. Card suggestions I have to offer are Blade of Selves and Helm of the Host.

Looks like a low to the ground list you have here. If you are looking for more low costed ramp,Knight of the White Orchid is cheaper cmc-wise than Solemn Simulacrum. If you are looking for combo finishers, Godo, Bandit Warlord + Helm of the Host will go infinite and kill the table.

Daedalus19876 I'm waiting to see what Dwarf tribal comes out in Kaldheim before filling out the tribal cards. Right now the deck sits at 20+ dwarves, but if there's enough good stuff to add once that whole set list is released, I may remove Seven Dwarves, which could potentially make enough space for changelings.

The vehicles I'm already running are Aradara Express, Daredevil Dragster and Mobile Garrison, though I have other methods of tapping dwarves outside of combat both on the main and maybe boards. I'm iffy about Smuggler's Copter, because it's card replacement, not card advantage, and in playtesting I run out of cards in hand regularly.

As for Aggravated Assault, I forget often to include in my deck descriptions that I intentionally avoid infinite combos. Helm of the Host is an interesting idea, though, that I might consider.
