Whenever Coalhauler Swine is dealt damage, it deals that much damage to each player.

I chose not to run them because I don't run a lot of creatures. I focused more on ramp and draw to deal with the Boros Curse and abuse FS/SS. I also chose big blowout spells so I can keep as many cards in my hand as possible.

I've considered both Dualcaster Mage and Balefire Liege and ended up cutting them.
Thanks for the comment!
Chiberia do it! You can always build on Tapped/Out first, no need to buy all the cards before you know what you want! That's what I do anyway. Don't sweat the upvotes too much. The comments and advice are what really matter. Usually my decks are also 6 month processes, this one happened to be e perfect storm of new Boros commander, mine was the first one, the commander became really popular, I featured it 5 times.... so there are a lot of factors :)
TheACTR I will check it out when I have time :)
DrukenReaps Good question. I actually only have 4-5 cards that really kill my own stuff, and those either net me a ton of life(Blasphemous Act) thus making it worth it or it's my attempt to win the game anyway(Molten Disaster). I didn't encounter any of those the other night so I'm not sure, but Mark of Asylum felt like a dead draw twice. More testing is required before I can definitively answer the question, but it didn't feel like a huge concern over 3 games.

DrkNinja you play Neheb too? Awesome! thank you for the suggestions! I've already considered some and will consider the rest! I took a good look at my own Neheb list while compiling this one. Fire & Sun are probably Neheb's cousins or something haha!
crowned Thanks for the comment! Stuffy Doll, Spitemare, Boros Reckoner, Coalhauler Swine etc are good options, I'm just not sure if I like them or if they're worth running. I'll definitely try them out at some point. I can't do the full indestructible set up though, it takes too many slots away from the main theme and sub theme.
DrkNinja this is your third comment... you ever gonna upvote? xD

A very impressive first deck! However, I do have some suggestions. Coalhauler Swine might be a reasonable replacement for one of your burn spells. The deck is pretty heavy, and Generator Servant could help out, allowing you to cast Neheb on turn 3. Aggravated Assault can allow double the damage, and thus, double the mana. I would take the Blood Moon, as it isn't doing you much good. And it works out okay for mono-colored commanders, but for multi-colored EDH decks, usually, include Command Beacon, Command Tower, Opal Palace, and Path of Ancestry. I notice you're relatively new to the site. If you have any questions, just let me know! Nice deck, keep up the good work!

precociousapprentice Most of the combinations are 3+ combos in this deck although there is a lot of cross synergy. I have been delightfully surprised by how often this deck wins and who it wins against. It does not fare well against cEDH though...
I completely agree about the mana base. Although Traveler's Amulet and Wanderer's Twig rarely slow me down. I definitely find them superior to tap lands as I get solid land drops and color fixing. I have been gradually upgrading the mana bases if my decks and this one is next in queue. I rarely find that i don't have the mana to play my spells though. I believe the card draw from Marchesa mixed with fetching so many lands helps a little with that.
I think Tainted Strike is one of the cards you might actually like! It is not usually for your own creatures. It is for when an opponent is attacking another opponent turning a non lethal attack into a game changer. Although it does have some other applications. The Boros Reckoner as you meantioned and the similar friends, Mogg Maniac, Spitemare, Stuffy Doll but also Harsh Justice, Mirror Strike, Backlash (which I go back and forth having in the deck) but my absolute favorites are Arcbond, Coalhauler Swine, and Heartless Hidetsugu with a protection/redirection spell out. all of these get increased with the damage doubling effects out.
After reading what you wrote about Aikido, I have been thinking about what I could add to make it more political. Do you have any recommendations? This deck is much more about tricking my opponents into attacking me and dissuasion through them knowing I have tricks. With all of the Damage doubling and especially with Repercussion out the intensity of the game goes through the roof as all attacks if they go wrong can go wrong quickly and in a big way. I do love the adrenaline that this deck brings to the table and how quickly they games can go. In that way our decks are very different I think.
Thank you for the upvote!

Great list! This looks like a fun deck to use. Have you considered using Earthquake to finish of the game? One tap of Heartless Hidetsugu followed up with Earthquake should be enough to finish everyone off assuming you have more life than them. It works nicely with Coalhauler Swine too.
Some damage doublers like Furnace of Wrath would also be nice.
