I would take Boros Signet over Boros Cluestone

The thing to remember when making an EDH deck is: "What is this deck trying to do?" Getting a focus on the theme, and trimming any cards that don't play to that theme, is the first step you should take. Play toward your commander. You chose them for a reason, and they're always accessible to you. USE them.

One of the most important things to remember in EDH is that because you can only have a single copy of any card, each card has to hold its own weight and be important by itself. Cards like Lightning Bolt and Lightning Strike are great burn cards in regular 1v1 games where your opponent only has 20 life, but in big multiplayer EDH matches where each of your opponents starts with 40, they will probably just feel like dead weight. If you are using them for creature removal, consider this: there are two major types of "creature structures" in EDH decks: big guys, and a lot of guys. If you're facing a token deck that has swarms of soldiers, zombies, saprolings, or whatever else, a Magma Spray here and a Magma Jet there might get rid of one or two of them, but there will always be more. If your opponent has "big" creatures, then you will have to play two or even three of these cards just to get rid of one creature. All that does is destroy your own hand while wasting your own cards.

Next is land. EDH is the best format for "mana rocks" (artifacts that produce mana). Look into things such as Sol Ring (an EDH staple), Boros Signet, Boros Cluestone, and Boros Keyrune (the signet especially). Some other lands to look at (for starters) are Command Tower (a staple just like Sol Ring), Opal Palace, Sacred Foundry, Clifftop Retreat, and Boros Garrison.

Also, you have two copies of Act of Treason and are short one card. I hope this will give you a good start on the never-ending process of tuning and tweaking. Good luck!

You can take out Gamble , unless you really like shitty tutors and bouts of disappointment, but I couldn't really find another indestructible creature that was a great fit for what you're doing with this deck.

Instead of the Boros Cluestone , you could run Darksteel Ingot

I'd definitely have to go with Boros Cluestone or maybe Simic Guildgate .......

First of all, I'll say that this is not a very consistent deck. A deck that only have 1 or 2 copies of each card will be very difficult to pilot. Secondly, You don't have enough land to power up creatures like Iroas, God of Victory , Goblin Battle Jester or Congregate , you'll need at least 20 lands. Then, although Boros Cluestone looks interesting, it is actually useless, if is mana that you are looking for, you can add Sacred Foundry . Lastly, White and Red is a very powerful combination that can turn into Burn, Aggro, Weenie, Token and even Devotion. Things like Boros Charm and Boros Reckoner will be very helpful in this type of deck. = )

Yep. Sounds good.

Well, we are close to our $40 budget and we're not even halfway done.

Maybe we ought to raise the budget ceiling to $60? Any objections?

Also. Sweepers. I like Brightflame . Aurelia's Fury could do in a pinch, too. Legion's Initiative , anyone?

Fixing our colors on a budget. Boros Keyrune , Boros Cluestone , Boros Signet , Darksteel Ingot , Terramorphic Expanse , Evolving Wilds , Armillary Sphere ?

Hey dude, thanks for commenting on my Aurellia deck!

I really like your creature base! Only card I would add is Solemn Simulacrum

I think your deck is a bit heavy on the enchantments and land. Maybe consider swapping a couple of lands and enchantments for mana rocks like Sol Ring , Boros Signet , Mind Stone , Gilded Lotus , Darksteel Ingot and Boros Cluestone (I normally don't like cluestones but BW has trouble with card draw and every little bit helps). This would help your deck get a more explosive start.

As for the enchantments, I would cut a few of the low impact ones and add Marshal's Anthem and Legion's Initiative (awesome against wipes).

To address the card drawing problem that BW decks have, I feel that cards like Staff of Nin and Mind's Eye are almost mandatory, you could try running Reforge the Soul since it's already in your maybeboard.

Last suggestions that come to mind are Mistveil Plains for your sunforger package, always nice to get used instants back into your deck. Return to Dust is also a stronger card than Wear / Tear in the modern age where you need to deal with theros gods.

Oh and Blasphemous Act is AWESOME when you have Repercussion on board.

Hope these suggestions help!
