Mulch and similar cards for selfmill are more effective.

Maybe abrupt decay? The lingering souls helps, too.

I like it also.  I think I will put those in to force the Gyre Sages to grow.  So far that is the biggest problem I have had is getting them to evolve in the early game.

My main deck still has 61 cards.  But it seems to work.  I don't really want to drop below 24 lands and I am having a hard time removing a card to get it to 60.  Originally the deck was mana ramping with Farseek and Avacyn Pilgrim and had abundant growth to mana fix + pump up the Etheral Armor.  However, I found that this deck didn't really need any sort of mana pumping to do what I needed.  Yes, turn 2 Geist is sweet.  But drawing a bunch of stuff to support that wasn't.  So this is what I ended up with.  It has worked well so far winning me a few FNMs and last weeks Game Day.  

Magic is a fickle beast though and I know that I can't win with this for long.  So, I am looking for any insight into making this deck better against the popular Boros decks that I have managed to mostly avoid.  I feel like I am weak against Red and Black decks with what I have.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Didn't even feel the warmth from that.  But if +Jem Thrasher has actual suggestions I would listen to them.

This is what I am testing for changes.  Assume appropriate land changes.  Main deck only atm.

-2 Nearheath Pilgrim
-1 Geist of Saint Traft
-1 Invisible Stalker
+3 Markov Blademaster
+1 Silverblade Paladin

-3 Rancor
-1 Curiosity
-1 Oblivion Ring
-4 Bonds of Faith
+2 Gift of Orzhova
+3 Madcap Skills
+3 Pursuit of Flight

That gets it down to 60 and ramps up the agro a bit.

Im looking at preordering 2014 singles for future trades. Which card(s), spoiled so far, do you think have the best profit potential.

Are you suggesting buying Mutavaults? Brian is asking for profit potential so I would like to know why do you see it in Mutavault.

Have you ever finished watching an anime series and then immediately start back at the beginning?

A young prince has a spirit living inside him that is presumed to be a demon.  His father thinks he must destroy the demon to save his country.  Thus, his life is in constant danger.  During one such attempt on him Balsa, a spear wielding bodyguard, saves his life.  In an effort to save the boy's life, the queen hires the bodyguard to protect the prince for as long as she lives.  Balsa, who is on a quest to save 8 lives, accepts the duty.  Thus the adventure begins.

Introduction
I could say a great many things about myself. Most of them would be true at least some of the time. A lot of my interests are random and sometimes temporary. However, here are a few things that I consistently enjoy. Reading, writing, anime, drawing, Japanese culture, music, Magic: The Gathering, sci-fi, baking, PC's (not apples), Google, my car, sake, sushi, cats, and anything made with actual sugar.
