If they have no creatures and you have no way to deal damage to them, try out Boros Reckoner. It works perfectly and delays by only one turn. It's a better alternative than to rely on orchid

Thank you for the +1! And usually we aren't at a great life total from the spirit token beat down that we generated for our opponent with Forbidden Orchard. We do have 8 bombs in Boros Reckoner and Hornet Nest but if Arcbond wasn't "each player" I think we could use it here. It would be sweet to deal 26 damage to our opponent in one turn though. I might have to do some playtesting!

I'm afraid there's some land cards that aren't legal for this deck:

Gruul Turf, Jungle Shrine, Rootbound Crag, Sandsteppe Citadel, and Savage Lands can't be used because they all have Green Mana symbols which is a color not found on either of your Commanders. You should replace them with: Boros Garrison, Rakdos Carnarium, Clifftop Retreat, Isolated Chapel, and Terramorphic Expanse.

If you're interested I know a couple of infinite life-gain combos. If you cast Volcano Hellion and have something that will give it lifelink at instant speed or have a card out such as Nearheath Pilgrim or Whip of Erebos, then you can choose the Hellion to do 2 billion damage to you and a creature and since it has lifelink you won't take any of the damage dealt to you and whatever the hellion damages you gain that 2 billion life or whatever number you want it to be.

Another infinite life gain combo would be to use Boros Reckoner, then if something were to deal damage to Boros Reckoner you could cast Rush of Vitality on it giving it Indestuctible and Lifelink. Then whatever damage is dealt to the reckoner you can have it deal that much to itself causing it deal damage again which you can choose itself again and again and again. Since it has Indestructible it won't die from taking repeated loops of damage and for every loop you gain that much life since it has lifelink.

So, let's say i have Boros Reckoner and Felhide Petrifier on the board, then use a Shock on my Boros Reckoner. If i cause these 2 damage from the reckoner's ability to a creature, is this damage dealt with deathtouch to that creature?

could put Chained to the Rocks as well maybe replace those goblins with Boros Reckoner for an offensive

Nahiri's Wrath works great if I have a Blasphemous Act in hand but not enough creatures on the board. Pitch that and an Insult / Injury and that's 15 dmg to a Boros Reckoner or Hornet Nest.

Boros Reckoner is a horrible card to play for RRR. To play him on curve you had to miss 3x Tron-Lands, which would be pretty bad.
Go for Hangarback Walker or Walking Ballista. Easy to cast, always relevant.

Chandra's Ignition often works as a better Duneblast and is a potential finisher with Repercussion (or in my deck with Malignus and i guess Stuffy Doll or Boros Reckoner do their part). This card has probably won me most of my games, yes.

As with the monolith, yes I guess you could call it a ritual. We probably won't untap it anymore, but then again we normally wouldnt play a 11 mana Gisela either. But Gisela is a risk-full commander and with high-risks comes high reward.

But in all honesty, in my playgroup cheap exile effects are not so common. I more have to deal with allot of sacrificing effects and expensive mass removal. I want to dent opponents as much as possible early on to finish them with spells or commander damage.
