Lets start with your CMC. In order for an aggro deck to be fast, the mana curve for the deck needs to be incredibly low to the ground. With that in mind here are some creatures that are all sub-three CMC:

You do also need some cards to add support which you have a few of but these three are pretty hefty; Iroas, God of Victory , Purphoros, God of the Forge and Hero of Bladehold .

You are also gonna need to give your creatures haste, and one of my favorite cards does just that for next to nothing; Mass Hysteria .

Here are a few cards I also think would be really good support, or are staples in this archetype:

I know your goal isn't to nessecarily win via commander damage but these two cards I find are helpful and threaten any opponent usually... Sword of Feast and Famine and Sword of Fire and Ice

Lastly... I know you said you avoided it intentionally but... I think it was a mistake... You need more ramp. The more ramp you have the faster you can play dudes the faster you can kill someone. So Mana Crypt , Sol Ring , Boros Signet , Chrome Mox , etc. I think you should play at least 5 ramp artifacts to really help you get that overwhelming force, because on T4 you now have to live in fear of WoGs

Ok that's all... he said after posting a page long comment... Sorry. <3 If you need help with cuts anything above 4 cmc should be the first things to go with the exception of Cathar's. get your CMC as close to 2 as you can.

Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Frontline Medic , Selfless Spirit and Reconnaissance are some interesting options. I also recommend some cards like Quicksilver Amulet since alot of the beaters are pretty costly.

Hey, you've made an overall good budget Boros deck using cards you have, but it's confused as to what strategy it is.

You have the start of a Boros aggro strategy with lots of good two and three drop creatures, but then there's 14 creatures with 6 or higher CMC (converted mana cost) who are out of place with the rest of the deck. You already have your six drop who's Aurelia and she benefits as well as the rest of your army does from low CMC creatures to attack with. Did you buy the Guilds the Ravnica Boros Guild Kit? If you did there's some creatures in the kit to consider adding. Consider more Battalion?

Other budget cards (less than $1 each) to consider adding for aggro:

Double strike is a pretty powerful ability when your attacking creatures are getting a pump as well as when you're getting an extra combat step with Aurelia. Lots of two drops and three drops are good with dual lands that ETB (enter the battlefield) untapped. Consider adding these lands?

Good luck with your deck.

I would take out 3 Frontline Medic and 4 Launch the Fleet to put in 4 Radiant Destiny and 3 Conclave Tribunal . Test it out and see how it works. I wouldn't touch Brimaz, he is too good here.

Hmm I really like the look of Conclave Tribunal and Radiant Destiny . I’m not quite sure what I would pull to fit those in though, maybe 1 copy of Frontline Medic and 1 copy of Brimaz, King of Oreskos ? This deck, when running just right, is pretty fun and mean, but it can be clunky at times as well. In the first 3 turns it doesn’t do to much. I have a hard time putting in lower mana cards for all the good ones I already have yaknow? Honestly I’m not worrying about the sideboard just yet. I only play with my friends and I like to build my sideboard after I’ve bought the deck and played it for awhile with them.

Alright awesome! Yeah, because of the High CMC of the angels, I figured that KT would help fill my hand and ramp me aswell along with not being such a big target! But i was reading online that Angels are not good just by themeselves and should have some support. Like with Frontline Medic and such. I was thinking about putting in Temur Ascendancy rather than the Fires of Yavimaya ! Is the card draw engines you have in here working as well as you like?

Removed Repel the Abominable , Descendants' Path , Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds . Added in Path to Exile , Decree of Justice , Opal Palace and Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip.

I don't think I have enough creatures to reliably use Descendants' Path without messing up draws of my other spells. Repel the Abominable seems redundant with the other means I have to protect my board state and I feel at only two colours of mana I don't need to fixing as badly as I need lands that enter untapped.

I would like to add in Silverblade Paladin and some form of equipment to provide a backup plan of commanded damage but I'm not sure what to cut or which weapon to add. I'm currently thinking of Frontline Medic being one of the dropped cards.

I think people underestimate the power of cards like Soltari Champion. Sure it doesn't look better than Honor of the Pure, but after factoring in that it's a creature, that is basically unblockable and that can be the target of teshar's ability, you'll see how it's that much better for what we're trying to do. Same can be said about effects like Capashen Unicorn.

If you're putting sacrifice effects on the list I would suggest Mangara of Corondor, which even in the worst case scenario it's an exile effect.

Two cards that missed me when I wrote the article were, Frontline Medic and Lieutenant Kirtar. The first is amazing as a way to force through damage and the second is a flying beater that has a strong removal stapled to it.
