Faithless Looting Discussion
3 hours ago
While you don't have a lot of fast mana (the legal Moxen, Mana Crypt, and so on) you do have a ton of mana rocks. Even though your average CMC is above 3.5 I think you can safely shave 2, maybe 3, lands from the deck for other cards. Given how often you're trying to blow up lands, drawing one after the first few turns is virtually a wasted draw.
To compensate, I'd suggest also swapping out some of your highest CMC cards for cheaper but more targeted solutions. These include Inferno and Incite Rebellion (unless several people you know play token spam decks). I'm not crazy about Akroan Horse but you might like Trading Post in its place.
You may also find Daretti, Scrap Savant, Goblin Welder, Faithless Looting, Trinisphere, Torpor Orb, Chaos Warp, or Aftershock to be valuable. The last two and Daretti in particular, because you do also want some targeted removal and with so many artifacts Daretti can shine.

This deck looks fun! Boros is cool. Maybe Luminarch Ascension would be fun?
Also you are running three high mana artifact tutors- planar portal, ring of three wishes, tamiyos journal. If you are not playing combo, what do you typically tutor for?
Some lower mana tutors in boros are Enlightened Tutor, Open the Armory, and Gamble. You could consider just card draw like Cathartic Reunion | Faithless Looting or Wheel effects like Reforge the Soul | Magus of the Wheel.Depending on your budget I would consider Sensei's Divining Top over journeyer's kite and Sword of Fire and Ice over rogue's gloves.

I don't like draw cards that require more work (paying mana) or are reliant on opponents' actions (which means they can control when you get cards), such as Farsight Mask or Mind's Eye. At a lower mana cost they might be okay, but they're way too expensive for the effort involved. If I'm paying that much mana I want them to be automatic, like Staff of Nin. This counts even if you're playing Daretti.
Daretti, Scrap Savant can use draw+discard very efficiently because of his Goblin Welder type ability; you can pitch cards you want him to animate and dig. This is something red does well. Here's some of the big ones like this:
Wheel of Fortune
Magus of the Wheel
Wheel of Fate
Slate of Ancestry
Reforge the Soul
My friend that runs a Daretti deck prefers cheaper ones he can fire off earlier in the game. The idea is he can afford to fire one of these off to get something expensive into play when other decks are still ramping. I'll list a few I've seen him use at various times:

Gilded Light is my favorite graveyard protect
need lots of ramp, you're sinking two mana a turn just to do stuff some decks do for free. But, Alesha does some things different/better.
Vault of the Archangel turns your weenies into something your opponents will cringe at.
Consider building either much heavier recursion or lots of tokens to supplement. If you go with tokens, City of Shadows
Balefire Liege is a HUGE help.

Path to Exile is probably the best removal spell to play if you're going to splash white.
Kolaghan's Command is a nice 1-2 of giving you a mainboard edge against affinity while giving you versatility by giving you access to recursion, discard, and removal all on 1 card.
Not sure if Faithless Looting is what this deck wants to be playing since you don't have ways to utilize cards that will be discarded from it. Faithless Looting is not really card advantage but actually card filtering (replacing a number of cards with different cards). If filtering is what you want then its fine but if you want advantage (replacing 1 card to get more than 1 card) then maybe Painful Truths would be better.

I would recommend dropping Descent of the Dragons for Vines or another card like that to protect your ramping creatures. Also, Atarka, World Render would be able to dish out more damage than Dragonlord Atarka. On top of that, you should only be running two of the Atarka since it is a 7 drop. Also, even though harmonize seems good, you could use other cards like Tormenting Voice or Faithless Looting to get card draw earlier to get the Atarka out faster.
