Absolutely! Flameshadow Conjuring doesn't require a cast, rather a non-token ETB. I use it and Sneak Attack to great effect in my Brion Stoutarm. And Feldon of the Third Path Just cares about your stuff dying, which it often will. I see him as a late game recursion tool that fits in with the token theme.

I also found and want to suggest Spell Swindle. I know you want to keep your counterspells cheap, but the potential army of tokens it could make for you is too good not to run.

You're right, Rite of the raging Storm doesn't seem like the right fit.

As for cuts, it depends on how your playtesting is going and if you feel you have the right ratio of all your categories. With that in mind, here's what I would do:

That's my advice! Seriously, the deck looks awesome :)

Brion Stoutarm of course. Slave of Bolas. I'm curious to what exact effects are you looking for because. If you have a scary boardstate of creatures facing you cards like Shriveling Rot in respose to a board wipe can do some serious damage. Also Vicious Shadows.

You got something here. I like it.

Iroas, God of Victory is a staple

Chained to the Rocks, Ghostly Prison, lots of more spot removal, Lightning Bolt, Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Valorous Stance, Planar Cleansing. You don't really control as you do stall them for a couple turns. Ghostly Prison makes it so that they can't attack you without paying mana. Bolt takes out 3 toughness creatures and chained to the rocks is good because its a 1 mana removal and chances are, your playing group doesn't play lots of enchantment removal

You need to go heavier on the creatures. It's boros. They are better with a creature base out. Nobilis of War, Tajic, Blade of the Legion, Iroas's Champion, Boros Swiftblade, Figure of Destiny, Angel of Invention

Brion Stoutarm is decent way at getting use out of a creature dying. Before damage is applied, you tap 1 red and the Stoutarm and deal some damage to their face. Also good for getting that last bit of damage that your creatures couldn't by flinging them right at their face

Legion's Initiative, Dictate of Heliod, Spear of Heliod are very good pumps

You need much more mana rocks in your deck. Armageddon is a bitch. Not only this, it helps ramp and mana fix on occasions. I personally won't have less than 6 mana rocks in my commander deck. Boros Signet, Mind Stone, Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere, and Hedron Archive are some I would run.

Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves are good at utility pieces.

You should honestly get away from the reservoir unless you are running hard life gain and can afford 40 life and not lose

Thada Adel, Acquisitor seems great for this. Also Mind's Dilation for late game. I have a Boros-colored deck built around stealing creatures and Flinging them at you with Brion Stoutarm that might have some other options for you: Mine-on Stoutarm, like Stolen Strategy for instance.

It seems like Brion Stoutarm doesn't add a whole lot to your gameplan. I'd recommend switching to Aurelia, the Warleader if you want to go deep on game-winning combos in Boros, since she gives you infinite combat steps in the command zone with Helm of the Host. Helm also goes infinite with Combat Celebrant.

Restoration Angel and Felidar Sovereign also go infinite with Kiki, but not with Twin, so they're worth considering.

I mean, if you want to play an original reanimator strategy then you could go for Brion Stoutarm. Sounds crazy I know but you would not believe the amount of reanimation white has, and coupled with red's ability to chuck cards into the grave and wipe fields with either color means your own resiliency stems from being the first to start rebuilding.

The tricky part is in the use of combos or not. I would do combos for a multiplayer game, but for 1v1 you could get away with low to the ground aggro from both colors being recurred after your own board wipes. The other thing is most of white's more recent reanimation is based on cmc, so having lower cmc creatures that sacrifice themselves for spell like effects is crucial.

Another thing I'd personally recommend for a reanimator deck is being able to bring back more than just your creatures. In my mind each colors has a single thing they emphasize in such a strategy: white enchantments; blue instants/sorceries; black creatures; red artifacts (actually shared with white/also instants sorceries); and green lands (or anything depending on how you go about it).

If you wanted to just focus on not getting your graveyard hosed, then you should just not play a "mill your whole library" type of deck and be more value than combo based. Or else play to specifically negate the cards that shut you down.

I say this as someone who has only played against the combo graveyard decks mind you, so take it with a grain of salt.

He drew Boros Charm too. And all other charms too.And Boros Battleshaper. And the top boros commanders like Firesong and Sunspeaker and Brion Stoutarm. And a lot of other cards too, you can make a commander deck with his cards only:

Zoltan Boros has 200+ cards

Hahah very nice! I run a Brion Stoutarm so I have great respect for this deck!

Since your creatures die a lot Skullclamp will be great value.

Mimic Vat is sorta recursion... 3 mana for a sackable creature every turn.

You definitely want Illusionist's Bracers here, then you get twice the power for every activation!

Sort of a stretch but god is Phyrexian Dreadnought fun. Drop him for 1, sac/fling him in response to his self sacking ability.

Phyrexian Devourer + fling or Brion + kill someone!

Lifeline will get all of your sacked creatures back consistently. Might be good here!

Bloodshot Cyclops is another Flinger you might want.

I can see a place for a lot of these in here... hope some of them help!
