Balefire Liege should be an auto include.

Guilty Conscience + Stuffy Doll should be here. Youre playing Darksteel Plate and Boros Charm so it makes even more reason to play Guilty Conscience so you can utilize Spitemare and Boros Reckoner. Selfless Spirit can make an additional choice.

Since you are playing Scroll Rack you should also utilize Bonfire of the Damned for its miracle cost. Terminus also has potential here.

So if I cast Spitemare Balefire Liege Deals 3 damage and I gain 3 life regardless of the color spent casting Spitemare ?

Dictate of the Twin Gods and Furnace of Rath double damamge too

Felidar Sovereign and Test of Endurance are easy wincons especially if you flash them in with Vedalken Orrery

Angelic Accord Can make you an army of flyers that avoid most of red x wipes.

Flame Rift Sizzle Cheap burn

Browbeat Molten Psyche Burn or card draw

Boon Reflection Alhammarret's Archive Doubles lifegain and archive doubles draw

Chandra, Torch of Defiance Jaya Ballard Ramp and draw. if you ever ult, Chandra gives extra burn and Jaya gives recursion

Hi Stranification,

Conventional wisdom says that lands that come into play tapped like Wind-Scarred Crag and Temple of Triumph are not what you want in modern because of the loss of tempo. To improve things a little replace the Wind-Scarred Crag with Clifftop Retreat, then if you have the budget replace two of the Temple of Triumph with two Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, this should help your mana base a fair bit.

Your also lacking one drops, so often you will be doing nothing turn one, that's ok but you need to know it is a weakness of your deck. If you weren't aiming to have everything by red/white I'd suggest Signal Pest, since you are I'm not sure what to suggest outside of Figure of Destiny, which will eat removal, but might be an option.

In terms of r/w two drops, I think I prefer Honored Crop-Captain to Battlegate Mimic, I'd also suggest cutting one Balefire Liege for Fanatic of Mogis, the fanatic could be a last minute save.

I hope that's of some help, have fun brewing your deck.

Im building this deck as well you beat me to the punch on this one! I think its the only Boros commander that is even remotely interesting

I reccomend Blood Sun normally i wouldnt reccomend it because its just a mediocre card in commander but in Boros turning Guildgates, and tapped duels into all upsides is actually a perk. Boros mana is generally just bad, and the cantrip doesnt hurt either.

Im going with a Boros Reckoner subtheme in my take on the deck seeing cards like Blasphemous Act and Star of Extinction are probs staples for the deck and Im sure we wont have a shortage of red damage based wipes why not get some damage in while doing it! maybe some of the new Dino's may fit in this theme as well with enrage triggers? idk just a thought

cant go wrong with Dualcaster Mage and Balefire Liege

Like Im stoked to finally play a Boros Commander that isnt simply hyperaggro :D

Punishing Fire for the repeat shocks.

Survival Cache is good in lifegain decks, but better when it turns into a burn spell.

Balefire Liege is a halfassed way to double down on your commander

Increasing Vengeance is pretty cheese with your r/w spells
