Obelisk of Grixis
Resounding Scream
Qasali Ambusher
--> Rhox Charger
Rockcaster Platoon

Soul's Fire
Vectis Silencers
Welkin Guide
Hindering Light
--> Wild Nacatl
Grixis Panorama
Glaze Fiend
Fleshbag Marauder

I probably should have took the algae gharial but Im glad i did not you'll see why later strong pack, the souls fire and maruader are also fine picks too, but i love me aggresive decks.

Bone Splinters
Deft Duelist
Savage Hunger
Vithian Stinger (FOIL)
Outrider of Jhess

Overall it seems like good picks, although in deckbuilding I personally would have played the Sigil Blessing over the Cylian Elf but to each his own. I just see sigil as a removal spell early game and a burn to the head late game.

Thanks it is the better card but white is my semi splash colour and I felt the deck needed the bear more, that was my logic. No one else care to comment?

I think your p1p2 is actually right. I think nacatl is one of the best cards in the format. Alot of pros warrant taking nacatl over like thunder or oring.
