Hey, your Commanders care about two types of creatures, Dragons and Knights. This is the simplest approach to consider is add more Dragons and some Knights? A higher amount of Dragons than Knights seems better with your two Commanders because double strike with Dragons who already fly is more powerful then Knights with flying.

Dragons are high mana cost creatures therefore consider more ramp? More ramp so you can cast Dragons especially Khorvath faster. Sylvia doesn't do much until you have a Dragon on the battlefield which ramp can help with.

You can't play Gruul Locket and Orzhov Locket in a Boros Commander deck. Can only play cards that are red, white or red/white because these are the color identities of your Commanders. Cards with black and green even though they also have red or white aren't legal with Boros.

What's the budget for your deck? Cards $1 or less each to consider adding:

Lands

Mana Rocks/Other Ramp

Dragons/Cards that support Dragons

Dragons who can pump their own power which is called "firebreathing" are good with double strike.

Knights

Draw

  • Mask of Memory: an equipped creature with double strike who isn't blocked does combat damage twice to an opponent meaning you draw four cards.
  • Rogue's Gloves: with flying it's easier to do combat damage.

The nice thing about these equipment is the interaction with double strike. These equipment can also be repeatable draw and if the equipped creature dies, the equipment isn't destroyed, can equip another creature.

Removal

I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

Swords to Plowshares Condemn Chained to the Rocks the list is endless my guy. Banisher Priest Fiend Hunter .

Also, white has card advantage in the form of tokens- while its not ideal it’s what fits in the color pie. Monastery Mentor Elspeth, Sun's Champion .

Also, there are SOME card draw effects in white- Mentor of the Meek effects exist. Almost solely for white.

you could try Devour Flesh for removal, I have it with Condemn to have 8 cards for removal in a white/green burn deck using Tainted Remedy to make it work like yours

This is a cute concept, I like it!

I think you're going in the right direction to optimize this, but I'm questioning the Pacifism, Pariah, and Deflecting Palm. Pacifism should probably be replaced with Path to Exile if it's in your budget, or if not you could look at Condemn . If you're more concerned about getting rid of blockers, you could replace it with Journey to Nowhere . The point being, there's lots of better cards you can look at that do the same job. I'm not sure what your idea with Pariah is - if you're trying to protect your 'important' creatures, there's a million better ways to do it - you could try Apostle's Blessing or Brave the Elements . I think you can actually do better than both of those though if you opt for Boros Charm - it does everything this deck could want on any given turn, I'm surprised you don't have it in already. As for Delfecting Palm, I like it as a card and it's fun to "Gotcha!" people with, but it's a strictly defensive card that you've put in a very aggressive deck. I'd consider swapping it with something like Azorius Charm , which can be defensive if you need it to be (either floating an attacker or giving your team lifelink), or it can be more aggressive (floating a blocker or using the draw card mode to act as a "free" prowess trigger).

Lastly and most importantly, you have WAY too many lands for this deck. Hard control decks that plan on having 10+ lands on the field at once only usually run a maximum of 26, and you're here in an aggro list with your most expensive card at THREE mana running 27 lands. You're going to flood FREQUENTLY if you keep it this way. A list like this one generally runs between 20 and 22 lands - if I were you, I'd go down to 22 and replace the 5 lands you cut with some mix of more creatures (12 is a little low), the spells I mentioned, and the planeswalkers you're looking at.

All of this is just my (well informed) opinion though - if you don't like the changes I suggest then feel free to ignore them! Whatever you decide to do, be sure to have fun with it!

Bottle Gnomes may only gain you life but they at least can sac themselves at no cost and count as historic for the purposes of triggering your commander's ability.

Felidar Cub gives a little more removal to recur.

Condemn is a bit conditional but at least an option for some instant speed removal that can deal with indestructible creatures.

Checked Card Kingdom and they have a fair number of printings of Sun Titan for under $3, the Commander 2019 version is listed at $1.99. Having a couple of things that are a little beefier wouldn't be a bad idea and it fits the theme of the deck.

Thraben Inspector ?

I second adding a anthem or two to be able to punch through if/when needed.

bankrupt_on_selling: Thank you!

When I first started building this deck 2 years ago I used Condemn , but then I noticed that the attack clause meant that I couldn't use it on utility or combo creatures, which is the vast majority of what I want to remove. With Oust being a sorcery it isn't optimal (if only Swords to Plowshares was legal..), but it is more flexible, and I get a little bit of tempo advantage out of it with the sort of topdeck manipulation.

Oust is only poor when it comes to ETB creatures.

What's your input on Oust vs Condemn ? Love the deck!
