Other things removed:,Browbeat, Risk Factor, not the Brisela, Voice of Nightmares Combo as it locks down nearly all staples of cEDH for being "CMC3 Danger Zone". Same for Concerted Effort + Pristine Angel as my stuff that wrecks fields has immunity towards such cards' Color Identity. Same applies for Odric, Lunarch Marshal even though Sky Terror & Swiftblade Vindicator are removed. Possibly adding them back... Still trying on Damage Doubling as Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is, basically this.
Question: Are the following cards good?
Planar Bridge (Hefty cost to search for Permanents, but can put them in play right away. Plus, I already have infinite mana combos to boot.)
Mangara's Tome (Not sure if drawing a card at the start of a turn is a replacement effect, but if not, this can give you all 5 cards easy. I don't think this gets sacced after that, so flickering this again would mean potentially, I can play my deck.)
Citanul Flute (Why I have a lot of fat in the first place. I can net both parts of the Brisela, Voice of Nightmares meld, & play them both on the same turn. (Gisela, the Broken Blade is CMC4, & Bruna, the Fading Light is CMC7...) Then hell will be given.)
Your thoughts on these? I'll continue cutting from here. Just got to 100% Competitive though; even though it seems like a hopeless lie...

If you're seriously gunning for Tier 2 cEDH, you will have to compete with infinite combos, stax, etc. Listen to CommandZone's "Breaking Boros" episode to get the lowdown, but in short, you would have to cut everything but the 60 most cutthroat cards: MLD, stax, infinite combos...no Concerted Effort, no protection, no Browbeat, no damage doubling, nothing but the best Sunforger cards, no Meld or bounce or extra turns. None of those are fast enough if Prossh or Narset is just going to kill you dead on Turn 4-5. Personally, I think competitive Boros sounds about as fun as playing Galaga in a full-body cast, since you don't have the liberty to put fun cards in. I do not advise building such a risky (not to mention very expensive) deck if you're just trying to prove a point, because there are no guarantees that you'd ever win or even have fun playing it.
Of course, I don't mean to presume -- for all I know, you could be a 10-year veteran of cEDH who plays pro Modern when s/he gets bored, but at that point I'd have you ask you for help (;
On the other hand...making a Boros deck that does things besides attack could be pretty interesting. Flameshadow Conjuring, Eldrazi Displacer, and Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker could be the core of an interesting Flicker deck. When I'm thinking about a theme like this, I divide my cards into enablers and payoffs. The payoffs here would be the typical W suspects like Fiend Hunter, but also Warstorm Surge, Bogardan Hellkite, Flametongue Kavu, and Dualcaster Mage. That's the direction I'd lean if you just wanted to do something creative and offbeat for a more casual or budget playgroup, or for random strangers at FNM. Or I'd make Firesong and Sunspeaker, or Brion Stoutarm, or Basandra, Battle Seraph.
Finally, to your question: both those are terrible competitively. But if you're just trying to make friends and have fun, they're great! Just depends on your goal. How competitive is your playgroup?
No, you need 3 themes, max. Once that core of the deck is good, you can experiment. But you've gotta cut it down, first. Tough love (: if it hurts to lose all your Scryfall work, copy/paste these cards into a private decklist, then start fresh. But stick to 3 themes for now(;
Feel free to hmu once you get it narrowed down a little more!

(Continuing from the "4 Favors" Forum Post...)
For Ramp in Boros, I have Mana Rocks & Basic Land Manipulation via Solemn Simulacrum. Naturally, I can Ramp Extra Turns & Glorious End an opponent in addition. Card Draw is based on cards like Browbeat + a Damage Doubler, forcing one to pay 10 instead for me not to draw. Same for Risk Factor, except I don't need to Jump-Start it to repeat the effects. I also have several Rummaging Effects & Wheels. Removal is even more complex than the others; as I wanted underrated Spot Removal that can target nearly all card types; this failed when I realized so far, only has compatibility for Planeswalker killing. That's my reason behind all this.
To put it this way: the cEDH community put (Almost?) all Boros Commanders on Tier 3 on a range of Tier's 0-4, with 0 being the strongest. I wanted to upgrade this to Tier 2 since, as most Boros Commanders are on this boat anyway (Except Sylvia Brightspear & Khorvath Brightflame I'm guessing?), & making something good enough could promote Boros to Tier 2 at most.
But for deck names based on a single phrase; for the glory of Aurelia, I would choose "Gisela Aggro Value Town Stax" The Damage Dealing is where the Aggro output is coming from, as well as some resistance. Value comes from some examples of cards CommandCast you aforementioned; including Flicker effects, Rummaging, Reanimator, etc., this is where the Extra turns also apply. & Stax is for stuff that can lockdown a board to a point where even in White, stuff in Legacy even can be useful here.
3: Such combos have since been revised, & is still in a WIP status. They will have a much better description for each. & yes, Anarchist has since been cut anyway.
Oh & thanks for the tough love, landofMordor! :) I'm going to search for some flicker effects outside of Eldrazi Displacer BTW! But I have one last question; is either Khorvath's Fury or Regna's Sanction of ANY worth?
One last thing, I'm making this deck also for the idea that Boros isn't just meant for " Me" effects. It has Niche cards that just kickass. Later! :D

I think Lava Spike is fine in the deck. If you wanted to upgrade I would think about swapping some creatures out for upgrades instead. Since the biggest anti-synergy I see here is your creatures that ping opponents for spells cant attack. So having the haste cards doesn't help. So I would either add in Pyromancer Ascension, Grapeshot over some of the 1 mana haste draw cards.
I wouldn't add in Browbeat since Risk Factor is almost strictly better. But I don't think you need that card. You will be hitting hard and hopefully be killing your opponent before that really matters.

LonelyDonkeyKong, Yeah. I was thinking with my wallet, mostly. They are ordered and on the way.

Thanks for the feedback Grubbernaut. I'm especially grateful for the sideboard suggestions.
I realize the problem with Browbeat but in playing Kitchen table magic, by the time I play it, my opponent is usually at a low enough life that I usually get the cards. Do you think it will run the same way in a modern match up?

You might consider anthem effects instead, Lightning Helix, etc. Also: Boros Elite is a reasonable card, but does suffer a drawback in that it's not red for Denizen. Goblin Guide is a really good alternative, or even Mogg Fanatic.

Maybe side out searing blaze for Magma Spray or Lava Coil, Browbeat is a nice card draw and good for multiplayer magic but its sorcery speed and less than optimal since 'any' is really 'target' if you arent playing multiplayer magic.. Your sideboard could use some archetype hate pieces likes Grafdigger's Cage, Relic of Progenitus or Leyline of Punishment is also a great include!
