Chained to the Rocks Discussion
1 week ago
The landbase looks solid and the curve seems fine!
You might want a couple of more mana rocks, but you should get a proper feel for that with play testing.
Sunblast Angel might also be useful, as it's not too hard to make it one sided in your favour.

Thank you for your suggestions. Deflecting Palm is more of a sideboard card. As far as removal is concerned, I was thinking about Chained to the Rocks. For 1-drops, maybe Student of Warfare, Doomed Traveler or Judge's Familiar.

If you want to play angels as a casual deck, I would suggest you play more interaction, as well as some ramp, and less creatures. Mind Stone and Boros Signet will help you get ahead on mana, and be able to drop the cards earlier. I would probably play 4 of each. I would also play 23 lands in the deck, a deck like this cares less about untapped lands, so cards like Wind-Scarred Crag and Temple of Triumph would be useful in the deck.
Then I would add in some good removal. Cards like Mizzium Mortars, Chained to the Rocks, Declaration in Stone, Journey to Nowhere, Incinerate or Aurelia's Fury are all great in a more casual deck. Once you have about I would probably do something like 4 Incinerate, 2 Aurelia's Fury, 3 Mizzium Mortars, 3 Journey to Nowhere, and 1 Chained to the Rocks.
This leaves you about 16 slots for any creatures you want. Of course, you could probably also trim a mana rock and maybe 2 removal spells if you want more room.
Hope this helps, also if you make a new deck, put a comment with my name in it so I can take a look :)

In the future, please link all cards in your question. It makes it much easier for us to understand what's going on if we can see the cards involved. You can link cards by using double square brackets:

Of course (unless you are playing something really weird) you want your decklist to be 60 cards at all times.This could work: x4 Chained to the Rocks 4x Silence 4xBoros Charm 4xLightning Helix 4x Legion's Initiative 4xBoros Reckoner2x Ajani Vengeant 2xElspeth, Knight-Errant 3xAssemble the Legion 2xAurelia, the Warleader 2xSun Titan 1xGisela, Blade of Goldnight

As mentioned above you want consistency in your cards.The most common tactic is to pick the 9 most powerful cards of your deck (better if they differ in mana cost) and add 4 copies of each.You can deviate from that and instead of adding 4, you can add 2 of a card and 2 of another.This is sometimes the right move if you find a card to be powerful but not flexible enough to always get value when played.I am going to list some budget options.Let's try sorting by mana cost.Lands:I really like Temple of Triumph and even run it myself.Budget option with powerful scry effect.Boros Garrison is also nice.If you are willing to invest a bit more you could get Fetch lands and other duals.CMC 1:I find Chained to the Rocks to be amazing.You can only run it in this type of deck so why not try it? x4Sideboard option: Silence self explanatory.CMC 2:Boros Charmx4 (or x2) Lightning Helix Definitely x4The fundamental bane of Boros decks is card draw.So why not run this?Spirit of the Labyrinth Pretty solid card.I run x4 but you can choose to sideboard for draw heavy decks.Legion's Initiative is Broken.Definitely x4CMC 3:If you are playing boros you should 100% run 4xBoros Reckoner. Ridiculously powerful.Brimaz, King of Oreskos is nice.x2 or x4There's a point to be made about a ton of cards at 3 mana that are viable but I like Thalia, Heretic Cathar a lotCMC 4:I'd suggest x2Ajani Vengeant and x2Elspeth, Knight-ErrantIf that's too expensive you can choose to run Wrath of GodCMC 5+:At this point the game should be almost over.You want cards to finish off your opponent.I personally like Aurelia, the Warleader Gisela, Blade of GoldnightSun Titan (to bring back Boros Reckoners xD) and Angel of Serenity which is pretty underrated but extremely flexible and strong.Read it's effect carefully.Assemble the Legion gets pretty insane, pretty quickly but I'd sideboard it for some more controlly matchups.

He was playing on a budget but it was so painful to watch.

Hmm you really should have access to at least one alternative aura to find with Heliod's Pilgrim, preferably something interactive. My first ideas are off-color unfortunately: Chained to the Rocks and Spreading Seas. You could go for Dead Weight, Oppressive Rays or Lignify but they might not be good enough. Angelic Destiny could be okay in some matchups, and Spreading Algae, Unflinching Courage as well as Spirit Link are potential sideboard cards.
Have you considered Auriok Champion? It's a solid card on it's own since it dodges a lot of removal and can block a number of powerful creatures, but it also improves your combo by giving you a way to gain infinite life.
