Before I can 100% properly help you out, I need to know what you mean by "surviving rotation". Take Boros Guildgate out if you want this is to be legal after rotation, haha.

I don't understand Fall of the Hammer since there are no bombs in this deck D:These are all great cards to consider in my Boros Aggro deck. Triplicate Spirits , Raise the Alarm , and Akroan Hoplite . You should also find some room for one or two Soul of Theros . Very VERY good card, and is quite cheap too, 2-3$ usually.I disagree with aegis angel, 6 for 5/5 flyer is alright, but giving indestructible to a 1/1 - 4/4 isnt very intimidating. Pacifism is good, but its rotating out soon. Spear of Heliod is awesome.

If you want to keep this deck standard, Avacyn and Restoration Angel are illegal. Angel of Serenity is a nice bomb though.

You need cards that protect you early game. That can be in the form of creatures with high toughness like Nyx-Fleece Ram or in the form of removal spells. Chained to the Rocks , Anger of the Gods and Banishing Light are the best, as they exile and Anger can deal with multiple creatures if you go against an aggro deck (there will be many). There's also plenty of burn spells that can fill this role if you don't have the above cards: Shock , Magma Jet , Lightning Strike , Stoke the Flames (good later on as you can tap tokens to pay for it).

Once you arrive (mostly unharmed and with a clear board hopefully) at turn 4 or 5, you need to execute your win condition. It can be big flyers like Angel of Serenity , Stormbreath Dragon and Aurelia, the Warleader or it can be something like Purphoros, God of the Forge bombing away with each creature entering the battlefield through Elspeth, Sun's Champion , Assemble the Legion and Young Pyromancer (if you go with the red burn cards too).

Cards that you should take out first for these additions: Boros Elite , Viashino Firstblade , Frontline Medic , Wear / Tear (put that one in the sideboard)Then if you need more room and have better cards: Punish the Enemy , Oppressive Rays , Gleam of Battle , Legion's Initiative , Guttersnipe , Heliod, God of the Sun .

Also, if you have them you should add lands that can be tapped for white or red: Temple of Triumph , Battlefield Forge and/or Sacred Foundry . Boros Guildgate is a cheap substitute, but it will help prevent bad hands in which you have good cards but wrong lands.

I hope you get the idea and that you're able to create a fun strong deck. Another adjustment could be a strategy in which you try to get as many cheap creatures on the field and then make them stronger with cards like Spear of Heliod . You already have Assemble the Legion and Elspeth, Sun's Champion that generate a lot of tokens, and with some help it could be another win-condition.

Why do you run Vivid lands and not Boros Guildgate which is better. And even better is Temple of Triumph . Also with Boros Garrison it allow for run less lands due to it acting like two slow lands. Another land is Evolving Wilds , Terramorphic Expanse , both help fix lands and deck thin as they act as a high land count early and remove two lands out of the deck increasing the odds of drawing relevant card late game. Also i have found a good counter to counter spells and copying mana ramp spell/tutor is Reverberate .

Trailblazer's Boots with the Aggravated Assault + Sword of Feast and Famine will help ensure that you can attack the player and I have never seen anyone play a commander deck without a nonbasic land. Spectra Ward could help in that respect too.

I would replace Boros Guildgate with Boros Garrison

Savage Beating + Spellbinder similar combo to the Aggravated Assault + Sword of Feast and Famine . Scourge of the Throne also offer some extra attacks. Price
