SturmMana - I'm glad I can inspire you! My roommate also plays a similar style in Historic and he's upset that Blood Artist is there instead of Zulaport Cutthroat since he has to actually click a target for each death haha. Tibalt, Rakish Instigator is in the sideboard for here but Im not yet sure if it's needed. It is one of those cards that has definitely worked, but I also hate to see it sometimes.

I'm constantly trying to make this deck more efficient so if anything works for you in historic (and is pioneer legal) let me know so I can try it! Thanks for the comments and compliments my good sir.

Promise of Loyalty is good here. Nevinyrral's Disk kills everything except your walkers. I also run Jokulhaups but I know not everyone is cool with MLD. It does work nicely with your Smothering Tithe too. Combine with Boros Charm for a win ;)

Pramikon, Sky Rampart and Mystic Barrier help keep your walkers safe from attacks. I run Meekstone as well, but you have some big guys in your list so idk if youd want it. Karmic Justice is a nice deterrent for removal spells.

Narset Transcendent Chandra, Torch of Defiance Jace, Unraveler of Secrets Will Kenrith and Rowan Kenrith and Dovin Baan all have insane emblems.

The Wanderer Narset, Parter of Veils Teyo, the Shieldmage Tibalt, Rakish Instigator are all good obstacles to your opponents game plans.

I run Narset + Wheels, but that's another salty combo so it depends on your group. You have Emergency Powers so Day's Undoing Whirlpool Warrior or Windfall aren't too far off. Add in a Solve the Equation and a Drift of Phantasms to search up the combo.

Ajani Vengeant is another one that you should only run if your group is ok with land destruction.

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon is obviously great but I know not everyone has the budget for him.

Tezzeret's Gambit is a flavorful draw spell for 3 generic and 2 life.

Just thoughts. I see you are doing more of a token theme. I personally focus more on wraths and resource denial to keep opponents from advancing their boards until I can get emblems. I admit that everyone HATES my version, but I love it lol. Cool deck.

Idk life gain for the longest time has been a joke but I think its gotten serious support over the last few years.

My best advice is appropriate removal that green has to offer for artifacts amd enchantments and red probably Skullcrack / Tibalt, Rakish Instigator .

Outside that do what does best and beat up up with creatures until they die from it.

Best I can offer is just saying no. Roiling Vortex for sideboard, Rampaging Ferocidon is probably better than Quakebringer for general use, Skullcrack or Tibalt, Rakish Instigator if there's burn or tokens involved.

Great deck! Looks like fun. Not competitive, but fun. Tibalt, Rakish Instigator would be a good sideboard option against life gain.

With 16 different plansewalkers in the deck it may be difficult to have some consistency in the deck in terms of effects.

To start off, I'm surprised Kaya, Orzhov Usurper isn't in the list. She's good against RDW and exiling cards in the graveyard like Cauldron Familiar and Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath plus possible Elspeth Conquers Death targets.

Narset, Parter of Veils, Teferi, Time Raveler, and Sarkhan the Masterless feels like instant playsets for tempo, protection, card advantage purposes plus consistency.

A copy of Garruk, Cursed Huntsman could serve as an additional late game threat and can kill off a creature for card draw if needed. Him together with Liliana, Dreadhorde General and Chandra, Awakened Inferno.

Teyo, the Shieldmage and Tibalt, Rakish Instigator feels slow and not as impactful compared to the rest of the suite. For The Wanderer, could try just running a single copy since her ability does not come too often unless mata calls for it.

Having Fabled Passage is important in a deck like this so you get to cast your spells more smoothly on curve. A 4-2 split between Interplanar Beacon and it could be worth a test.

Just my suggestions so far. Hope it helps.

Needs at least 22 land. also Curse of the Pierced Heart is an option as pseudo-additional red shrines that are not limited to 1 on board. Shrine of Burning Rage is also good and super on theme. Leyline of Punishment should be in the deck in higher numbers or not at all since you want to always open with it. As an alternative to Leyline consider Tibalt, Rakish Instigator. Quest for Pure Flame is also a card that is best at 4 because you want to see it early. Max out Lightning Bolt. It is just so good and somewhat on theme. Nice to see a Kamigawa/Ryusei type deck. Firebrand Archer could go to 4. -1 Torbran -4 Vexing Devil -2 Jaya -2 Leyline -1 Honden -2 Comet Storm -2 Chandra's Fury -4 Ember-Fist Zubera -1 Shock +1 Mountain +4 Ramunap Ruins +2 Tibalt +1 Lightning Bolt +4 Shrine of Burning Rage +4 Curse of the Pierced Heart +1 Archer +2 Quest for Pure Flame is one way to go about changing it.
