Hi, looking for what good white or red pump spells are available in pioneer.
Me and a friend are making a semi casual RW dog aggro deck. After some thinking, we thought of trying to go into the aggro route.
Any suggestions of pump spells 2 cmc and below, preferably instant speed. Thanks.
Do you use scryfall.com ? Easy to use search engine.

Infuriate and Titan Strength both look decent, will have to decide which to use.
yeah, semi-casual for now. The dog deck does not really have enough cards to be competitive. Needs another lord or maybe another dog with a strong ability. What we plan to do is make something that can be later improved once new cards are printed.
Some possibilities: Adamant Will if you want the creature not to die. Barge In if you have things that are worth giving trample to. Basri's Solidarity is the cheapest mass +1/+1 counter spell we've seen yet (tied with Oath of Ajani for CMC but less color-restrictive). Battlefield Promotion isn't too powerful, but the first strike and lifegain might help. Brute Strength gives trample at instant speed, which can be handy. Charge could be helpful if you have a lot of creatures on the field. It only costs 1 mana, too. Desperate Lunge for the evasion, maybe? Feat of Resistance makes a nice protective spell and doubles as evasion. Fight as One only costs 1 mana and can make at least one, potentially two, creatures indestructible. Gird for Battle is 2 +1/+1 counters for 1 mana, which isn't bad. Invigorated Rampage also gives trample at instant speed, potentially to two creatures. Pride of Conquerors is really good if you have a deck that can meet the ascend condition consistently. That one won me quite a few games with my GW token deck in Arena when it was in Standard. Run Amok, yet another instant-speed trample enabler.
I appreciate the suggestionns. Looking at Brute Strength, Desperate Lunge, and Feat of Resistance, simply for the evasion and usable when I'm blocking. The "only when attacking cards" are dead cards when I'm the one being attacked.
card that used the city's blessing is strong, but I feel not to reach 10 permanents as dogs would be dying left and right.
we plan to use this deck in our tribal wars themed pioneer games, so I can't really add too many non-dogs to the deck.
