Thank you for the suggestion forneyt. I have updated the deck removing Heirloom Blade and replacing it with Sword of the Animist . I have also removed Odric, Lunarch Marshal and replaced him with Enlightened Tutor .

I would suggest Sword of the Animist instead of Heirloom Blade . It gives Bruse the +1/+1 he needs, and it ramps beautifully!

another few option's i can think of if you want a mix of ramp and smash Sword of the Animist and another potential wincon in combo with Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar is Master Warcraft to prevent blocking by opponents. And if feeling extra spicy use Brash Taunter

This is a fantastic start to this build! Sword of the Animist Basilisk Collar are great cards for this deck too

Forging the Tyrite Sword might be good. Helps ramp into angels and can snag your boots or Sword of the Animist

Omniscience_is_life - I really, really, really, hate the art of Hushbringer. Just... why WotC.

Ad Naus and Mirror have both been in and out of the deck many times. Mirror is heavily meta dependent... sometimes I really like running it, sometimes it feels a bit useless. I kinda go back and forth on it. The ceiling is pretty high though. I've copied opponents' smothering tithes, mana doublers, wincons, my own combo pieces to essentially dodge removal as I attempt to win, etc etc.

Sometimes it also kinda sits, if I have other things I want to play and there's nothing good to copy (or nothing that isn't very niche to an opposing strategy, and useless to me).

I ultimately decided to keep Heritage over Tarl. When I took him out I considered Heritage. After his ETB, Tarl has to attack himself to be of use, and I often didn't have a safe attack that wouldn't result in him getting killed. With Heritage also being able to be used on opponent's attacks (they also often forget I can do it, and this can shift the game), it ultimately won out.

Tarl can be great though so really up to the pilot. And I was getting squeezed for slots again to try out some new tech like Sword of the Animist , which may or may not stay due to a very low basic count that I really can never find a way to increase meaningfully.
