Might I suggest Cloudgoat Ranger to help with your infinite tokens?

+1 from me! I love a good Brago deck. Check out mine? Brago's Crappy Punk Rock

Cloudstone Curio is great in Ephara, as are Cloudblazer and Mulldrifter. As Flagellum said, Whitemane Lion lets you get so far ahead for 2 mana its insane. Brago, King Eternal is probably nuts too.

How do we win? I see plenty of sweet synergy with blink and EtB, but no way to finish people off, other than beating in with undersized creatures. What about Eldrazi Monument, Akroma's Memorial, Cathars' Crusade, Dictate of Heliod, True Conviction or even Mirror Entity? Rite of Replication can often win games too.

I personally prefer a little token action along with my blink effects; Myr Battlesphere,Angel of Invention and Cloudgoat Ranger can all be blinked to quickly build an army, and cards like Chasm Skuller, Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Meloku the Clouded Mirror are great stand-alone token makers, while Faerie Artisans often gets you multiple Ephara triggers a turn and has synergy with your faerie subtheme. Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is probably decent too.

If you want to stay on the creature-focused plan, maybe some more recursion? Marshal's Anthem pulls double duty and is a pretty solid late-game top deck if the game hasn't been going your way. You're kinda light on removal too, Path and Plow are both fine, but I think you can squeeze in another wrath effect, and something like Detention Sphere can help get your 6/5 commander online earlier.

As for cuts, Force of Will doesn't seem worth it, unless your meta is super cutthroat. But it probably isn't since your looking to play Ephara. Maybe Counterspell, Swan Song or Memory Lapse? Paradox Haze doesnt seem incredible, either, maybe Leyline of Anticipation so you can really go off? Without a reliable way to pick them back up, I don't think that cards like Voidmage Husher, Phyrexian Revoker, Meddling Mage and Pestermite are worth it. These 4 can draw a lot of hate, too.

I would add these for a token strategy, Sun Titan, Cloudgoat Ranger, Captain of the Watch, Urabrask the Hidden,Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Martial Coup, Frontline Medic, Victory's Herald, Mobilization, True Conviction, and Akroma's Memorial.

Looks like you could use some spot removal and sweeping effects too Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Return to Dust, Chaos Warp, Wrath of God, and Blasphemous Act.

A big problem with Boros decks is they run out of gas quick, so it's important to run all of the best ramp/card draw available. I suggest Burnished Hart, Knight of the White Orchid,Kor Cartographer, Land Tax, Tithe, Sword of the Animist, Reforge the Soul, Wheel of Fortune, Faithless Looting and, Sensei's Divining Top. Looks like you have mana rocks covered pretty well, but I personally really like Gilded Lotus.

In my opinion every Boros deck should run Sunforger. It gives you great utility.

Lands I would add are Kor Haven, Windbrisk Heights, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Temple of the False God, and the cycle lands for more card draw.

My last suggestion is to change your commander to Iroas, God of Victory. He seems like the better general to go with on a token strategy. He is harder to remove, likes to go wide and doesn't cost as much as Aurelia. When Aurelia hits the table more often than not you will become the target at the table. Hope my suggestions are helpful. You have a good start!

Cloudgoat Ranger is my favorite here. I would cut some ramp and create more token generators that match your theme like:

Springjack Shepherd

Cathars' Crusade

Intangible Virtue

Gather the Townsfolk

and some bouncers like:

Cloudshift

Flickerwisp

Thank you for your detailed comment! :)

I think Cloudgoat Ranger is to slow for my deck. I do run 3 coppies of Militia's Pride. I looked at Ballyrush Banneret but it would only affect Kinsbaile Borderguard and Militia's Pride since all the other cards dont have collerless mana.

Thistledown Liege and Zealous Guardian look realy fun to play thanks for pointing them out.

I replaced Dismember with Journey to Nowhere.

Cloudgoat Ranger could work for you as would Militia's Pride, Ballyrush Banneret, Thistledown Liege and Zealous Guardian. As kithkin are generally low costing I'd be tempted to go creature heavy (around 24-26) and swarm your opponent. That way you could remove Ranger of Eos which isn't tribal. I also believe whilst 24 lands is a solid number you could afford to lose 1. I run 23 in my soldier/angel deck and seem to get on fine even though the mana curve is significantly higher. Finally, if you really want to run removal, there are much better cards than Dismember. Try Journey to Nowhere or Pacifism for more control.
