I am a long time Aurelia player. I don't think Boros sucks at all. Here is my full analysis :)
How has your deck performed?
Ramping and Card draw are important, but thinking that you need to out ramp the green player, or outdraw the blue player is incorrect. You only need to draw and ramp enough to win the game. The key is finding solutions to your problems. Here are your best card draw options Wheel of Fortune, Skullclamp, Sword of Fire and Ice, Mask of Memory. Three of those cards can be easily tutored with Steelshaper's Gift, Open the Armory, Enlightened Tutor, Stoneforge Mystic, and Relic Seeker. Making sure you always have 1 or more of those will keep your hand full. Next is other ways to generate value Tithe, Land Tax, Gift of Estates, Armillary Sphere. AlsoNahiri, the Harbinger is a great because it lets you filter, or blow up problematic enchantments. Unless youre playing in highly competitive metas things like Howling Mine, Temple Bell, Horn of Greed are also playable. If your opponents already had more cards than you then what does it matter if you both draw. You will both be limited by the amount of mana you can spend casting, as opposed to the number of cards in hand. Then you get to a place where you are dropping threats, and they are playing more value based cards.
In the past I have also made the mistake of thinking I could go under everyone else at the table. This logic is great for 60 card formats, but less so for commander. What I have found is that even aggressive decks want to be able to go big when the game gets big. In standard agro decks you are trying to curve out and play creatures at every spot along the curve. This doesnt work out as well in practice in commander because of the mana rocks, and you just cant guarantee that youll have your 4 cmc on turn 4. Also once that first board wipe hits, now you're past 4 mana. My point here is you'll want to add some 6 and 7 drops. Heres some excellent choices Inferno Titan, Balefire Dragon, which works great cause you already have a lot of haste, Tyrant's Familiar and the must include Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Dragon Mage is something I am testing out currently. I would up your land count a bit, 38-40, and I like to have about 3 creatures in the 7 cmc slot with 3-6 creatures in the 6cmc slot. Some other things that I think I would at least take a look are Crescendo of War Furnace of Rath Gratuitous Violence Relentless Assault World at War.
Obviously I mentioned a lot of things to add, unfortunately that means we have to cut some things. Obviously cut cards that perform the worst. I'll make some guesses about which cards don't pull their weight. Creatures: Akroan Hoplite Archetype of Aggression Iroas's Champion Mentor of the Meek and maybe Legion Loyalist. It seems like these probably just get swept up in board wipes. For the double damage, double combat stuff I might look at subbing out Dictate of Heliod Glory of Warfare, or you could cut from other places and just run all of them. Faith's Reward doesnt seem great to me, I would cut or replace with Boros Charm

I know it's been over a week, but I'm glad the suggestions were helpful! Why not a potentially excessive amount of them?!
Somehow, all of the cycle lands completely slipped my mind before. In a deck designed to draw as many cards as possible, you'd likely want all of the lands that can turn themselves into cards.
Blasted Landscape, Forgotten Cave, Lonely Sandbar, Remote Isle, Smoldering Crater, and the new ones coming out along with The Locust God in the new set, Desert of the Fervent and Desert of the Mindful. Mikokoro, Center of the Sea and Geier Reach Sanitarium Could also be decent.
Oh, and WHEELS! Don't even get me started on wheel effects! Dragon Mage, Forgotten Creation, Magus of the Wheel, Fateful Showdown, Incendiary Command, Collective Defiance, Reforge the Soul, Runehorn Hellkite, Wheel of Fate, Memory Jar, Magus of the Jar... I can't think of any more.
A nice way to take advantage of your swarm's sheer size is to use Breath of Fury, which can provide infinite combat phases when paired with Bident of Thassa, Coastal Piracy, or Windreader Sphinx, but it's really just good on its own..
If you can't tell, I've been thinking about building this deck since Locust God was spoiled.

I didn't even notice you weren't at 100, you have to have 100 cards you can't have more in commander it needs to be exact. Razia's Purification, Razia, Boros Archangel, Archangel of Thune (you don't have tons of lifegain), Bogardan Hellkite, Dragon Mage, Rakdos the Defiler, Winter Orb (if Kaalia isn't out this just hurts you), Ghostway and Dolmen Gate can all be removed to make space (that is 9 so 4 of those can stay or you can address other needs with those slots). Good luck!

If we're upgrading the land package soon, here's what we gonna do. Firstly, shocklands will be important, but you can start with prioritizing red and black ones. Blood Crypt, Steam Vents, Sacred Foundry, Stomping Ground, Watery Grave, Godless Shrine, Overgrown Tomb... Then you can pick up Hallowed Fountain, Temple Garden, and Breeding Pool later. You'll also want to consider dropping the guildgates/Maze's End. From here, the Khans fetchlands will be worthy of inclusion: Wooded Foothills, Bloodstained Mire, Polluted Delta, Flooded Strand, and Windswept Heath. These are the cheaper fetchlands. Sidenote: Cascading Cataracts, Cavern of Souls... They're probably good inclusions. This will be a start for your mana base.
The transformation from Scion to Ur will also lessen the power of the following dragons: Dragon Mage, Dragon Tyrant, Nicol Bolas, Quicksilver Dragon, Scourge of Kher Ridges, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon.
From here, you can try out Keiga, the Tide Star, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Thundermaw Hellkite, maybe Scourge of Valkas, Deathbringer Regent, Destructor Dragon, Dragonlord Silumgar, Glorybringer, Ojutai, Soul of Winter, Thunderbreak Regent... Those are just a start. Lots of potential there. Also, Crucible of Fire, Dragonspeaker Shaman, Dragonstorm lol, Dragonlord's Servant...

Chain Reaction is a really good board wipe: it's inexpensive, has a low CMC, and almost always kills everything.Staff of Nin is recurring card draw and it's cheap. Mind's Eye is more expensive but probably better at drawing cards. Magus of the Wheel and Dragon Mage are more wheel effects you could try. You might also want to try Mana Flare, Treasonous Ogre, or Caged Sun for even more mana to sink into Ashling.
You might want to try damage doublers: Furnace of Rath, Insult / Injury, Quest for Pure Flame, Dictate of the Twin Gods, Curse of Bloodletting, Gratuitous Violence, or Overblaze. All of these are pretty inexpensive.
Copying spells is a neat way to increase the value of your burns. You could try any of these: Reverberate, Wild Ricochet, Fork, Chandra, the Firebrand, Dual Casting, Dualcaster Mage, Increasing Vengeance, Howl of the Horde. You can also use most of these to copy pesky counterspells or copy draw or ramp spells. Price of Glory is great since you're mostly playing at sorcery speed. Pyroblast, Red Elemental Blast, Ricochet Trap, and Burnout are good for hating on blue players. Overmaster, Reroute, or Shunt might be okay too.
