Cards I want to add:

So I made a pretty big error while putting this deck together; I took out pretty much all the removal.... so at least some of that needs to go back in. Also, I need some card draw. Here's what I've got so far, but I need some help with this one:


Mentor of the Meek (Added)
Mind's Eye (Added)
Staff of Nin
Book of Rass (this seems very odd and very slow and maybe not very good)
Loreseeker's Stone
Skullclamp (Added)
Well of Lost Dreams (I think there's probably enough life gain in the deck to support it, maybe)
Endless Atlas
Citywide Bust (new card - destroy everything with toughness 4+)
Fencing Ace (Just took this out, but a double striker is always good, right?)
Mobilization (Added)
Bastion Protector
Blessed Alliance (from the We Need a Hero thread)

Cards from Guilds of Ravnica that might be good in here: (card links probably aren't working yet)

Bounty Agent
Citywide Bust
Crush Contraband (to be fair this might be going in a lot of decks)
Dawn of Hope (maaaaybe - the card draw is what does it for me here. The token making is expensive)
Gird for Battle
Light of the Legion
Cosmotronic Wave (maybe - not blocking is the key thing here)
Maximize Velocity (maaaaybe)
Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice (maybe, seems pretty good if you already have a decent team, but if you already have a decent team you probably don't need this)
Hammer Dropper
Swathcutter Giant (maybe, probably doesn't do enough)
Swiftblade Vindicator
Tajic, Legion's Edge (maybe, he does a lot stuff but I'm not really sure how much of it is stuff I'm interested in)
Truefire Captain
Response//Resurgence (and man is the other split card BAD. Like, really bad.)
Boros Locket

That's a lot of cards, but Boros does what this deck wants to do, so it's not too surprising :)

Kwende, Pride of Femeref is neither a Soldier nor an Ally but I still feel this deck would love to have him. So many instances of first strike to buff into double strike, including several which are provided to your whole team or at least your Soldiers.

Cartouche of Zeal does indeed look pretty good for this deck, and has me considering more potential auras:
Cho-Manno's Blessing is a really good heroic enabler. If you want to check out more auras with flash, you can also look at Ghitu Firebreathing (repeatable heroic triggers), Dragon Grip, Triclopean Sight, Spiteful Motives, Saving Grace, Latulla's Orders, and possibly even Guardian's Magemark. Undying Rage doesn't have flash, but it has interesting utility in being able to prevent your opponent's creature from blocking for a turn or just give your own creature a buff before attacking, and it returns itself. Detainment Spell can be cast on your own heroic creature, then moved over to an opponent's utilty creature.

Oooh I like the way you think!

Kwende sounds like a beating, esp since he's one of those guys you can cast pre-combat to buff the whole team (esp if Odric, Lunarch Marshal is already in play)

Ghitu Firebreathing and other repeatable auras is an excellent idea! One of the things I'm struggling with in this deck is a way to get repeatable Heroic triggers (since you need to actually cast the spell), which is why my only copy of Isochron Scepter is in this deck. Bounceable auras weren't something I had considered, but I think I should :)

Latulla's Orders isn't a card I've ever thought of, but it seems kinda fun - I'd need to play it on an unblocked heroic creature for max effect, but that's doable a lot of the time.

Hmmmm maybe I'll add a few of those in. Thanks!

Speaking of non-Soliders (who make soldiers) - Lena, Selfless Champion seems pretty good

Repeatable auras were something I'd wanted to suggest, but they seemed to be going in a different direction than what you're building. It's the direction I went, having started off with heroic stuff, and then ultimately cutting those to build basically Boros Enchantress. I didn't want to push you in that direction, but couldn't think of anything really good to suggest.

Also, having a look through repeatable auras nets me these:

Conviction
Crown of Flames
Flickering Ward
Ghitu Firebreathing
Mark of Fury
Shackles

Mark of Fury seems pretty good - it's "R: +1/+1 and trample to the team" every turn, plus I can use it for it's actual function and grant repeatable haste to whatever I cast.

Flickering Ward for protection, and Conviction for more buff are also pretty good.

Shackles doesn't really have a downside if I return it every turn, but at 3 to cast it's probably a bit too expensive.

More food for thought.
