Captain's Claws makes more unblockable dudes, pumping Tetsuko a bit, and still keeping her unblockable.

JuQ on War Master Aurelia's Extra Assault

You could really get a lot of value out of creatures with exert, you untap the every turn with Aurelia and on top of that they gain vigilance with the trumpet.Devoted Crop-Mate, Angel of Condemnation, Tah-Crop Elite, Glorybringer.

More triggers when attack: Token creation: Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Hero of Bladehold, Launch the Fleet, Captain's Claws.
Cast a lotta things Etali, Primal Storm.

Maybe you will need a sacrifice outlet for all those tokens Goblin Bombardment or the cheaper and worse Makeshift Munitions.

You will inevitably run out of cards in your hand, it's a Boros deck after all. Here are some ways to refill it: Ghirapur Orrery, Staff of Nin, Culling Dais, The Immortal Sun (a bit pricy but it's really good), Loreseeker's Stone, Oracle's Vault.
Some equipments Mask of Memory, Rogue's Gloves, Skullclamp, Infiltration Lens.

This equipment is just bananas on any red combat legend Tenza, Godo's Maul. And also this one Hero's Blade.

True Conviction, Waves of Aggression more damage, more combats.

Love it! I do dislike adding ineffective 0 drops just for the sake of draw (especially if you just get more ineffective crap with it). I prefer to beef up my 99, while putting my opponents on the doomsday clock, AND still drawing plenty. Also, regarding Captain's Claws - I agree, that card has been invaluable with so many mass-sac decks in existence. Other cards that have provided sac fodder for me are: Sword of Body and Mind,Moonsilver Spear Most people don't like the cost on the 2nd one but sometimes it has been awesome to suddenly turn Sram into a flying token deck.

It comes to my mind more suff that trigger when you attack Captain's Claws, Goblin Rabblemaster, Hero of Bladehold, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Launch the Fleet, Soltari Champion, Accorder Paladin, Goblin Wardriver, Hero of Oxid Ridge, Wingmate Roc, Frontline Medic, Firemane Avenger.

Or when they deal combat damage Prophetic Flamespeaker Skeleton Key, Mask of Memory, Rogue's Gloves, Specter's Shroud, Destructive Urge, Markov Blademaster, Slith Ascendant, Blinding Angel, Falkenrath Marauders and any of the "sword of A and B".

And more Extert Angel of Condemnation, Tah-Crop Elite, Glorybringer.

I'm always looking for a Boros deck to run the Sunforger too bad you have so few instants.
Card draw is hard in Boros, so I'd also try to use Staff of Nin, The Immortal Sun together with the Ghirapur Orrery you already included.

I hope you find something useful among these cards.

@ROUROU (fight the power), I can at least respect Captain's Claws enough to try and own them, I do not at the moment, and I think I can at least try and playtest it in the correct scenario, but the biggest reservation is that they are indeed Kor Ally and not Human, which isn't the worst thing, but it also leans itself to a kind of grindy game.

Overall not directed at anyone in particular but I do believe there are unexplored combinations of Allies and Humans that might care more about color combinations or even value spells that would fit more in the themes of midrange, aristocrats/Rally the Ancestors where Kalastria Healer and Zulaport Cutthroat support that, game that lean themselves to more of that grind.

How about a Captain's Claws ? It's one of the sickest ally tribal cards out there !
