Boon Reflection Discussion

I'd recommend replacing Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus with 2 cmc rocks like Arcane Signet and Talisman of Conviction. You want your ramp to be cheap, fast, and efficient. Get your ramping out of the way in your early turns so you can start making plays. Would you rather be spending 4-5 mana on a rock or be doing something that impacts the board, or sets the stage for your commander's arrival? Additionally, the more valuable the rock, the bigger target it becomes for removal. If you get your dynamo or lotus blown up you're gonna be setback a bit.
I do like your deck though! You might like Boon Reflection and Dockside Extortionist. I just picked up Firesong & Sunspeaker along with Feather, the Redeemed and a bunch of Boros staples as a gift for my friend. Might suggest he take some notes from here if he ends up using F&S. Hope this helps! :^)

WotC has printed creature versions of three of the five reflections from Shadowmoor; Rhox Faithmender is a creature version of Boon Reflection, Archfiend of Despair is a creature version of Wound Reflection, and Nyxbloom Ancient is a creature version of Mana Reflection, which means that WotC has not yet printed creature versions of Rage Reflection or Thought Reflection.
Naturally, I would like to see creature versions of those enchantments, since creatures generally are far more useful than are enchantments; I have Rage Reflection in several of my decks, and those decks would greatly appreciate having that effect on a creature.

Never considered this your commander before but they seem pretty fun. There's honestly not much I would change, this is a pretty solid list. Just for the hell of it though here are some cards you may or may not like:
I recognize this next bit is by no means a budget option, but Extraplanar Lens coupled with snow lands in mono decks offers some pretty killer asymmetrical ramp, assuming nobody else is running the same snows as you.
I like your deck! Hope this is of some use to you.

There are also tons of other cards that get counters when you gain life such as, Sunbond, Light of Promise, Ajani's Pridemate, Wall of Limbs, and Bloodthirsty Aerialist which can all become problems very quickly since its per trigger of life gain.
You could also look into more spells that trigger at the end of turn if you gained a certain amount of life. Resplendent Angel, Regna, the Redeemer, Regal Bloodlord, Angelic Accord, the new Witch of the Moors, and Griffin Aerie.
And then adding more consistent forms of life gain will let you get more triggers therefore making you a bigger threat. Drana's Emissary, Shattered Angel, Soulmender, Nyx-Fleece Ram, Ajani's Mantra, Ajani Goldmane, and Palace Siege.
Finally, I've seen enough people win with Felidar Sovereign not to recommend it to any life gain deck.

Alright, I'm here to rectify the meiny of follies within this decklist.
Unto what I would ablate:
Shalai, Voice of Plenty is an illegal inclusion due to the colour identity rules, for she has Green therewithin.
Akrasan Squire does close to naught in all scenarios. It adds one power to the board, yet offers nothing else. An eath exclusion.
Sorcery-speed removal is just awful, and therefrom I would remove Revoke Existence.
Scaretiller is awful ramp, even when playing mono-White.
Wherefore do you run White Knight? 'Tis a potent card, but doesn't do much for this strategy.
Acolyte's Reward is egregious, thence I would rede for its removal.
Suspicious Bookcase is rather perfidious, avaunt it should be snuffed for something else.
Wellway! Quite the multitude there, whereupon I have some recommendations.
This is a slow deck, so try Ghostly Prison.
Given the high mana curve, you'll need a lot of this. Marble Diamond, Mind Stone, and Arcane Signet are each two-mana, which is when you want to ramp, and do their job well. Solemn Simulacrum is okay but not great, yet Thran Dynamo does a most meritorious effect for an eight-mana commander.
Lastly, though not ramp, Generous Gift is universal and efficient removal as an instant.
That shall be all from me. Fare thee well.

You can't cast spells.
You have hexproof and cannot be attacked.
I'd like to see another enchantment with a huge upside and a steep cost! Maybe like in a cycle, but more like the Boon Reflection, Thought Reflection, Wound Reflection, Rage Reflection, and Mana Reflection cycle, where the mana costs vary more.

It's a good thing that Boon Reflection was just reprinted because Alhammarret's Archive is out of my budget. I'll definitely buy a copy if the price drops though, because it stacks with Reflection to quadruple my life gains.

I may have mentioned these cards, before, but I think that the reflection cycle from Shadowmoor (i.e., Boon Reflection, Wound Reflection, and so forth), would be perfect for this set, as would Furnace of Rath.
