Humble Defector: "If Humble Defector’s owner leaves the game, Humble Defector humbly leaves the game along with that player."

Hey everyone, sorry, I've been neglecting the comments here for a bit. Just been playing on Twitch, making new decks, and testing this deck through video. (Not as fun as in person, but oh well.) Profet93, I will definitely add that infinite combo to the description. People must know. :D The draw power from Light Up the Stage is good, but the conditions are a bit much. Unless you are actively damaging your opponents, it's just a very expensive draw card (same about of mana for Wheel of Fortune). Humble Defector is good, but I hesitate to give my opponents card advantage. If they see you running Purp, and you are in a game of 3-4 folks, you'll never see this creature back on your side of the field. On the other hand, Humble Defector is great if you can sac him in response to the activated ability. Draw, then sac. Ignite the Future is a possible change to Outpost Siege if you are running it, and its flashback is sweet.

Hello, Great list! Thank you for the upvote and suggestion you left on my own. I think I'll have to add in Humble Defector and Homeward Path, perhaps also Starke of Rath while I'm at it. These kinda janky cards feel right at home with Norin. I see you've already decided against Mirror March, which I totally get, just figured I'd highlight how awesome it can be with stuff like Grinning Ignus and Cloudstone Curio, both of which I think can be justifiable even without the MM. Also the newish War Room is vastly better than Arch of Orazca in my opinion. +1

War Room - Draw
Sensei's Divining Top - Utility
Ugin Ineffable + Top + Experimental Frenzy = Draw your whole deck. Ugin + top are good on their own, frenzy is a wild card. Although I think with Feldon you prioritze activating him than casting cards in hand
Humble Defector - Draw, politics, synergy with homeward path, nice with feldon, cheap to cast and buy

I'd try to get some more 2 drop ramp spells worked in: Coldsteel Heart, Marble Diamond, Mind Stone, and Fellwar Stone to name a few budget options. If you want of focus on the Voltron aspect of the deck, I'd cut high CMC cards like Angel of Serenity and Admonition Angel. Some lower CMC forms of removal at instant speed that you could fetch with Sunforger would serve you better, and you can free up slots for more equipment or protection spells. I think I'd cut Runehorn Hellkite, too. If you still want the card draw, try Magus of the Wheel or Humble Defector. Trailblazer's Boots is another nice piece of equipment. If you are interested in being able to equip ALL of your artifacts to Wyleth, Bludgeon Brawl can do it.
Sejiri Shelter Flip could substitute for one of your Plains, or possibly Spawning Bed. I'm not sure what that card does for you, but there seem to be better nonbasics. It can offer some protection in a pinch.
Hope this helps. You've got quite a bit of good equipment in there, much better than I have available. +1.

I wanted to ask, how have the planeswalkers been for you? I almost always play with the same people and can't keep them on the board against them.

Next step is card-draw and card-advantage. Unfortunately, the Boros colors are the worst at drawing cards. Graveyard recursion is a type of card advantage, so Colfenor's Urn can count. I've never seen that card before! Nice find and good instincts!
Here are some options for you.
First up, the cards I own that I'm willing to part with:
Seer's Sundial - Staff of Nin - Farsight Mask - Key to the City - Infiltration Lens - Mask of Memory - Tome of Legends - Outpost Siege - Khorvath's Fury - Humble Defector - Chandra, Flamecaller - Magus of the Wheel
Cards I don't have that you should consider:
Bonders' Enclave would be worth picking up, I think.
Browbeat - Loreseeker's Stone - Arcane Encyclopedia - Vance's Blasting Cannons Flip - Ignite the Future - Reforge the Soul - Wheel of Fate - Mind's Eye (used to be the gold-standard! Very mana-inefficient though) - Icon of Ancestry (interesting choice since it has the anthem) - Rogue's Gloves - Well of Lost Dreams (great choice with your commander!) - Coveted Jewel (ramp and draw! Unreliable and mana-expensive, but chaotic and fun!) - Mangara, the Diplomat - Runehorn Hellkite - Dragon Mage - Knollspine Dragon - Herald's Horn - Endless Atlas (a bit suspect in two-color decks unless your colors are very skewed or you have lots of Renegade Map-type cards) - Bag of Holding - Arch of Orazca - Geier Reach Sanitarium - Mazemind Tome
