You should add some fury charms for them to gain trample and deal the excess damage to players. With all the attack-raising abilities, it should be helpfull. I would replace the Pillars of Flame with Lightning Bolts, but that's just me. Skyknight legionnaires would be good, they could also help getting damage to opponents. Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran would be a good general.

Thank you but I am trying to keep it standard (so bad because skyknight rules -_-' )

Very nice, I did see the combo of the Unruly Mob and Thatcher Revolt, but haven't used it in a deck yet. I do suggest running Riot Ringleaders though. Their bonuses to all of your humans may be just enough to toss the deck over the edge. Maybe replace some fiend hunters or Selfless Cathars.

Yeah Riot ringleader is cool, but Accorder paladin is faster almost same effect. Definitely Ringleader will be his replacement when he phase out.

ok its fun but get the right colors on first turn seems to be a problem so you could run the scars double lands

totally agree, bad thing is that there was no W/R land in scars :S, I believe in the new ravnica block we will see more of those lands and do the change on the meantime I am adding evolving wilds as a temporary fix.

silverblade paladin would be so good for this deck.
t1-champ t2-townsfolk t3-silverblade, and your champ is now 4/4 dbl strike! swing for lethal turn 4!

It's true even if I get t1-Elite Vanguard instead of champ its a turn 5 kill with silverblade, totally adding him to main deck and moving FH to sb.

This.... is ...... awsome dude. I knew thatcher revolt was going to be used like this and bam, here it is. Its so powerful with goldknight and champ of parish its gotta be fun at fnm. the only thing i can think of is maybe a singleton of slayers stronghold for tech purposes plus if you need to you just side it out of the main deck, sweet build dude:)

Btw if you get a moment i am looking for notes on this deck

This is brutal and fantastic. Have you considered running Doomed Traveler instead of Elite Vanguard? Smaller front end, but you get a flier when it dies. It can potentially feed your Mob twice, or give you a flier to block something with, or sneak damage over the top. Other than that I have no good suggestions, this deck seems pretty tight. Please take a look at what I'm currently running (Mono W, Humans and Angels) and let me know what you think: http://www.mtgvault.com/ViewDeck.aspx?DeckID=344648

Doomed traveler is really good because it gives you card advantage, the thing is that I am aiming to kill ASAP as soon as the duel starts so Elite Vanguard its better for that. However on decks running with a lof of bonfires, DoJ and stuff like that might be better so I am adding it to sb.

Have you tried Slayers Stronghold? I found it very formidable when playing against a boros deck.

About Slayer's Stronghold, guys idk if this land is really going to be good for this deck since it requires to tap 3 lands to pump to +2/+0 a single creature... with 3 land tapping I can cast a champ and gather the townsfolk or some of the other bad ass creatures,
And going for a land buff I rather have Contested warzone anytime over Slayer's Stronghold.

I am adding Grim Lavamancer instead of Pillar of flames since I am running the 4 evolving wilds.

Good change! Grim Lavamancer is an awesome card, and one I think a lot of people overlook. Since his ability is instant speed he's a real pain in the ass and potentially squeezes out a lot of value. Thanks for your comments on my deck. I added those Abolishers (managed to trade for some, finally), and even changed the name since I ended up pulling most of the angels out. I'm looking at where I can put in Curse of Exhaustion now. Thanks again!

After playtesting a little bit, Unruly mob wasn't aggressive enough So I am adding Curse of stalked prey to see how it goes with it.

I have 24 creatures that by their own wont get any benefit from IV, stalked prey on the other hand have proved to be useful.

heres my 2 cents:

first drops:curse of stalked pray (its pretty bad), also drop reforge the soul (no need for a wheel of fortune in this deck) goldnight commander (bad value for its cmc) selfless cathar (not good)

add: here are some possible cards to add: grand abolisher, mirran crusader, burn spells (pillar of flame, brimstone volley) fiend hunter, oblivion ring, angelic destiny, and hellrider is even possible. also consider oblivion rings and going up to 4 silverblades.

Thank you Natzito, the thing is that this is an aggro/weenie deck and the cards you mention to take out have proven(last fnms) to be really fast and game wining.
FH, O-Ring are on SB also Bonfire.
Angelic Destiny its good if you have a 1 creature strategy, example a Geist of Saint Traft so I can't really get any value fron it here I prefer GC as a 4 drop since I attack in squadron of creatures not singletons.

with the amount of humans you have, kessig malcontents would be a good addition. that with cloudshift. i have a similar deck here: http://www.mtgvault.com/ViewDeck.aspx?DeckID=345606

0

Def Kessig is good but I find Selfless Cathar more versatile because +1/+1 to all its 1 damage per human if they let them pass, or you can use it to save your other creatures from burn spells and also feeds Grimmy for his reusable shocks.

I drafted a similar deck accept I splashed green with champion of the lambholt because that becomes ridiculous with thatcher and everything else because it gets big and makes everything else unblockable. So I was thinking maybe have champion and like avacyn's pilgrim and some other green spells which could be cool, just an idea.

as far as boros goes, i'd drop the vanguard for reckless waif, they count as a human on play, but are really stupid early game if they flip, and turn rather leathal, i would also suggest dropping one reckless cathar and one kruin striker for 2 kessig malcontents, that way you have your more versitile cards, and you still get the bomb effect from kessig
next, curse of stalked prey? ax it for 2 more silverblades and another accorder's paladin, you should be playing fast enough aggro to want a better 2 drop anyway
i also feel that evolving wilds is not aggro enough for this deck, add two more of each basic instead, the only card that takes more than one mana symbol is silverblade (unless you hardcast reforge) and you have the caverns and clifftops, you really don't need the searchland

1.Reckless Waif, against control is good but against fast aggro decks(what is sadly played the most right now) you get stuck with a 1/1 that never transforms and have no effects... still I will try it instead of the Vanguard next fnms and let you know.
2.Kessig vs Selfless Cathar, well the thing is the way I see it both get to do the same amount of damage because Selfless can enter earlier start dealing damage and then be sac to do +1/+1 to all your buddys... if they go unblocked is technically 1 damage per human not counting the double strike ones, in earlier turns pumps faster Champion or Kruin that Kessig can and later is food for Grimm so I see it more versatile.
3.Curse of stalked prey, try it with Silver's double strike and you will see why is in the deck :)
4.Evolving wilds is a temporary fix meanwhile we get more double color lands, it helps you get the right colors early in the game and feed Grim.

1. sounds good
2. i only told you to take one out, and one of another card for two, cuase i agree early game, theya re kind of crap, but for the extra push over the edge, you trigger enter the battlefield abilities AND deal damage for every human, it tends to throw your opponent for a loop, actually almost always does, and i agree grim works well, but i feel for an aggro deck like this, you use him for his ability only if you haven't pumped him past 2 to begin with, or you want direct damage (which would then contradict your reasoning against malcontents)
3. oh trust me, i know how silly it gets, my vampires use them with markov blademaster, it gets dumb after a couple turns, i feel that more creatures with 2x strike (ie a couple champions) are a lot scarier than +1/+1 counters of a couple of cards that get through, which is why i junked my vampires, plus battle cry is silly, particularly with thatchers revolt i'd take the attacking bonus over the counters with stuff like that any day
4. if aggro's all that's being played, you probably won't have to worry about extra graveyard, i'd be more concerned with not stalling a land drop with a fetch land

Timely Reinforcements is a way better card than Thatcher Revolt. There are plenty of things that you could do differently, but having 2x Timely Reinforcements in your Main deck and one or two more in the sideboard for matches against highly aggressive decks would be very good.

Timely reinforcements its less aggressive than Thatcher Revolt and less synergistic as well since it doesn't produce humans but mere soldiers, however is really good against control and burn so I am adding a couple to the SB.

I'd suggest Vigilante Justice. I know it's a bit slow, but should you find yourself in a bit of a later game, it definitely comes in use, particularly w/ thatcher revolt.

something else that could help this deck shoot off like a rocket, replace 1 curse of stalked prey and 1 kruin with 2 curse of bloodletting (or one curse and one gisela), that way when you do connect, its dealing that much more damage and any burn you are using gets amplified as well

I love decks that obnoxiously make a list of their combos to show off poorly made deck lists.

I jest, I jest. Although, I will throw in my two cents.Curse of stalked prey is pretty good in a red black burn/vamp or blue red delver/stalker/proliferate decks. I don't know about Boros. I suppose it's fine.

Well, elite vanguard is a definite 4-of in such a fast deck. So is hellrider, as you could possibly tell from this page right here:

http://www.gatheringmagic.com/chrismascioli-041212-an-introduction-to-innistrad-block-constructed/
Take a look, you'll learn a lot.

Consider Rally the peasants. This card will win you games fast if you have just one or two in your deck. They flash back, and they are A LOT faster than your reforges, which I would advise you to take out. Goldnight commander is actually slower than you think. Selfless cathar is pretty bad. Not THIS bad
http://www.mtgvault.com/ViewDeck.aspx?DeckID=298075
...But pretty bad. So, I would suggest taking him out.

Also, restoration angel is a really good card. Like, really REALLY good.

yeah specially because of the low costs, but with the 4 evolving wilds skimming the library its like I just have 21 lands and it ensures I have enough lands(at least 4) in the first 5 turns.

Timely Reinforcement is just a better card than Thatcher Revolt, but whatever.

Stromkirk Noble and Vexing Devil are both the current best aggressive 1 drops in Red, and if you want to be aggressive, they both belong in this deck. You could maybe Sideboard the Nobles just for the mirror match-up against other Humans. Vexing Devil is just so good that he should be in every Red Aggro deck.

As far as your Sideboard goes, I would recommend 3x Manic Vandal because otherwise you're going to get decimated by Sword of War and Peace, Grafdigger's Cage just because it shuts down some decks super hard, and Dismember because 1 mana Instant speed removal is never a bad thing.

The Stromkirk Noble idea against mirror match sounds great for the SB.... but what should I take out?
I prefer O-rings and nevermore over Manic vandal.

I'm not really sure because you have cards in your Sideboard that make more sense in your Main Deck and cards in your Main Deck that probably shouldn't be in either.

That being said, if you want to keep it all the same other than that maybe removing 2x Pillar of Flames, 1x Bonfire, and 1x Fiend Hunter. That being said, Fiend Hunter is such a good card that you should just replace the Cathars or one of the bad cards in your main deck with Fiend Hunters and take Hunters completely out of your Sideboard. That's what I would do, anyways. Hope that helped.

This is not very good. I cannot for the life of me understand why you have kruin striker over lightning mauler, first of all. You also have no late game. You hardly have a midgame. Take out useless stuff like Lavamancer and Cathars and put in hellriders and restoration angels. Also take out all your token creation and put in those bonfires and pillars. Also put in a couple of zealous conscripts. You also have 25 lands. With your mana cost, you should run 22 tops. With these changes, 23. Give it a try and see.
