I would add [[Bloodflow Connoisseur]] ( or [[Carrion Feeder]] if the budget allows), to get an additional possibility to sacrifice creatures. Also [[Abnormal Endurance]] instead of [[Recover]] could be an option. I would (personally) also add some removal: [[Bone Splinters]], [[Doom Blade]] or anything in that direction. GreetingsMuktol
[[Primalcrux]] and maybe [[Khalni Hydra]] could be worth a look. [[Doubling Chant]] allows you to double your devotion with a single spell. [[Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx]] is a strong card in devotion decks tough it's expensive to get ($). GreetingsMuktol
Personally I would remove [[Elephant Guide]] for something more aggressive. [[Invisible Stalker]] is unblockable, [[Silhana Ledgewalker]] only by flying creatures and [[Aether Tunnel]] takes care of the rest, so a creature dying due to combat damage will be rather unlikely. And an opponent who manages to get rid of one of your creatures by spells/ ability's will very likely be able to manage a 3/3 token. Personally I would use [[Rancor]], but that's a budget question, [[Boar Umbra]] or [[Helm of the Gods]].
[[Tragic Slip]] can also deal with indestructible creatures and doesn't have the targeting restrictions.
I would cut [[Anger]] and [[Guttersnipe]] to add [[Goblin Chieftain]] and increase the number of [[Krenko, Mob Boss]] and [[Pashalik Mons]] or [[Purphoros, God of the Forge]]. [[Massive Raid]], or any similar spell, can deal massive damage to any opponent, [[Barrage of Expendables]] could serve as sac-outlet. GreetingsMuktol
[[Vampire Nighthawk]] and [[Gifted Aetherborn]] are great cards that provide you with deathtouch (against things like [[Joraga Warcaller]] and lifelink (to stay on your feet). Personally I'm no big fan of [[Markov Blademaster]] as he needs to much support to be really useful. A simple 1/1 token can block him without you getting any benefit from him, a 2/2 can kill him. The same goes for [[Falkenrath Exterminator]], attacking with him is not recomended without any support and his ability is rather expensive. Even with [[Blade of the Bloodchief]] (as support) both creatures are not (anymore) among my favourites. If you want to replace the Exterminator take a look at [[Guul Draz Assassin]]For your sideboard (against elves and any swarming deck) I can recommend [[Bonfire of the Damned]] and [[Electrickery]]. GreetingsMuktol
[[Snapping Gnarlid]], ([[Territorial Baloth]]), [[Groundswell]], [[Harrow]], [[Explore]], [[Khalni Heart Expedition]] should be enough answer to that.
Any reason why you're using boros and not simic or gruul as colours? GreetingsMuktol
Thanks for the explanation :)
Difficult question as I normally concentrate on modern-pauper and only play against friends, so I don't have any experience for top8 (or any other top decks). But to answer your question I would possibly remove [[Tilling Treefolk]] as I see it's only use in re-using [[Ash Barrens]] or getting lands back that you dredged into your graveyard.
+1What about other creatures with madness like [[Basking Rootwalla]] or [[Brain Gorgers]]?
Guilds of Ravnica brought the "undergrowth" keyword: [[Hatchery Spider]], [[Kraul Foragers]] or [[Vigorspore Wurm]] could be of interest here. [[Spider Spawning]] could also be worth a look.
[[Hunger of the Nim]] could be an option. That's if you don't overdo it with the usage of [[Syndicate Trafficker]] or your opponent shoots all your artifacts.
I prefer Tamiyo's Epiphany over [[Divination]] or any similar card due to the scry-ability as it allows me to dig cards deep and sort out cards I don't want to draw at the moment. I've tried to built a fast hexproof deck but using [[Jungleborn Pioneer]] but it wasn't really convincing and thus I didn't pursue that path.
Tamiyo's Epiphany is used for carddraw as you can run out of cards pretty fast. Never tried Arena pauper hexprof.
War of the Sparks brought back the proliferate mechanic: [[Evolution Sage]], [[Courage in Crisis]], [[Planewide Celebration]] and [[Pollenbright Druid]] would be something to think about as it will speed up the production of saprolings. [[Contagion Engine]] and [[Contagion Clasp]] come from earlier editions but are also very powerful as they are no one-time effect but can be used turn after turn. [[Thelon of Havenwood]] lets those counters also increase their power! If you want to work with spore counters the I would definitely max the number of [[Sporesower Thallid]]. [[Sporoloth Ancient]] can even enhance this production as he allows you to produce Saproling tokens for 2 spore counters instead of 3. GreetingsMuktol
2 [[Death Baron]] instead of 2 [[Cemetery Reaper]]? Nobody likes deathtouch and you still keep the ability to exile your opponents creatures.
There are some ways of making an angel deck fast and playable. One would be to use green defenders like [[Axebane Guardian]] and [[Overgrown Battlement]] to ramp while keeping your opponent at bay. Another would be to use less creatures and more control spells to keep your opponent from doing what he wants to do. The 3rd would be to use angels as finishers, have some cheap creatures that help you to survive early-game, and use the angels to strengthen your whole army. There are also some cheap(er)angels tough they normally start at cmc4:https://www.mtgvault.com/cards/search/?q=angel&searchtype=type&mco=%26lt%3d&mc=4&l=Modern&ps=20At the moment I would remove all cards that need a high number of creatures on the field or benefit from a high number of creatures entering (like Ajani's Welcome, Cathars' Crusade, and so on. Last, a deck you've made should be made public so that others can see it. If you get lucky (a little bit of this is still needed) someone will find your deck and leave a comment so reminders in the forum shouln't be needed. GreetingsMuktol
+1[[Prison Realm]] instead of [[Luminous Bonds]] and maybe "Gideon's Company" instead of [[Serra Angel]]?Many deck suffer from the absence of colour protection or hexproof cards, like [[Blossoming Defense]] or [[Brave the Elements]]. Personally I see an advantage on Arena for control decks due to the lack of such cards as standard is somewhat slower than modern, so it's harder to out-aggro them. GreetingsMuktol
