MTG Pauper Brew: Red/ White Tokens

My card shop is starting to host Standard Pauper tournaments, which gives me a chance to brew. I kind of want my deck to survive rotation so there aren’t a lot of cards to choose from. I went deep in the tank for the best deck in the format and I came up with Red/ White Tokens.

Cheap creatures & Token Makers:
4 Cathedral Sanctifier
4 Krenko’s Command
4 Gather the Townsfolk
4 Attendant Knight
4 Captain’s Call

Pump spells:
4 Trumpet Blast
4 Glorious Charge

Burn:
4 Searing Spear
4 Brimstone Volley

Land:
10 Mountains
10 Forests
4 Evolving Wilds

Sideboard:
4 Pillars of Flame
4 Chandra’s Fury
4 Safe Passage
3 Wall of Fire

The deck is pretty straight forward. Try to get as many creatures on board turn 1-4 and then alpha attack with Trumpet Blasts & Glorious Charges. Some burn gives this deck some reach.

The primary reason I think Red/ White Tokens is the best deck in the Standard Pauper format is that there aren’t a lot of sweepers that are common. I may be overlooking something but all I came up with is Chandra’s Fury. I think control and combos decks are totally unplayable so there are a bunch of cards in this deck against a wide range of aggro decks. I am thinking in addition to tokens, some sort of Red Deck Wins, Infect and Stompy decks. Some may try a Delver deck but I couldn’t find enough playables.
