There are plenty of budget dual lands you can go with to improve your mana base: Boros Guildgate, Stone Quarry, Wind-Scarred Crag, and Boros Garrison are all common or uncommon, and cheap enough to add to the deck without breaking a budget. City of Brass is a popular staple for multicolor decks, and isn't too costly. Inspiring Vantage, Needle Spires, Ancient Amphitheater, Battlefield Forge, and Temple of Triumph all come in at well under $5 a piece, and most under $2. All would help you improve and balance out your mana base.

Maybe if you are worried about getting mana flooded you can play fetch lands such as Arid Mesa? I was going to comment on your other land choices as well - Battlefield Forge is quite painful for you since only 18 out of 42 nonland cards in your deck has a colorless mana symbol; Temple of Triumph comes into play tapped unconditionally and Temples usually only see play in decks that need to search for a particular card (combo), or control decks.
And yeah sure, you are definitely right in saying that the combo in a self labelled combo deck is not the only way you can win. You only play 2 of each card, it's more like a gotcha! if you happen to draw them.
You sound like you place more stock in going down the aggro route hitting with weenies, maybe you'd want to try Champion of the Parish? He should grow pretty fast with the majority of your deck being Humans and with the Norin triggers. He can be Pridemate 5-8. Otherwise, the rest of your deck are 1/1s who are probably not getting through in combat. Wall of Omens seems odd in this deck - I'd imagine you can gain enough life without having to chump with it. Manamorphose is redundant if you can fix your colours through fetches - it is only a card draw since it replaces itself.

Not sure if Hellrider is so useful if I haven't got that many low cost creatures, but I will try to change that.
Wurmlover, PickleNutz not sure if you both are aware, but I am trying to use Blasphemous Act to deal damage to Boros Reckoner to deal that damage to the opponent, most of the time for the final blow. Would you still change the card for another removal?
Thanks to everyone!
on Boros burn

Hi there! I have a few suggestions:
- I'd get rid of the Boros Garrisons and replace them with Battlefield Forges. Coming into play untapped is a substantial benefit in a fast deck like Burn.
- Assemble the Legion is also probably too slow; Lightning Helixes if you can afford them or Burst Lightning if you can't would probably be a better pick.
- I'd also recommend swapping 2 Deflecting Palms with 2 Boros Charms, and 2 Shivan Meteor and 2 Blasphemous Act with 4 Legion Loyalist.
- Maybe also take out Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Brion Stoutarms, and Bloodmark Mentor for 4 Hellrider.

Brushland, Battlefield Forge, and Karplusan Forest. Have always loved the Pain Lands. The cycle has great art, but you usually don't get the chance to use them the way you can here. Tamanoa has always been a personal favorite as well. +1

i love boros and mardu colors. deck looks good, maybe focus on creatures and other spells that go with the theme your working with. you can take a look at my boros deck if you want http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/23-02-17-the-boros-battalion/. i would replace the Temple of Triumph with Battlefield Forge and replace Ajani Vengeant with Ajani Goldmane. its -1 is very good. i would also look into Akroan Hoplite it is consistently my biggest damage dealer.

Love the deck, immediate upvote. Although, I do have considerations to make it stronger, like Willbreaker (it works great with the commander's activated ability, even if he is a dummy commander). I'm still confused on why you excluded the stifle-like cards, especially with all the "loose the game" triggers? Also, some pain lands (Shivan Reef, Battlefield Forge, Adarkar Wastes) might not make the deck stronger, but hey, I love em. Besides that, great deck and keep up the good works.
