You’re not playing History of Benalia and Valiant Knight because you want to keep this budget, right?

Since you prefer to play Weenie i would cut Gilded Lotus and Manalith. Lotus because you play too fast for it, Manalith because you only need one color.

Then i would add 3 more Benalish Marshal. You need that +1/+1 support. But maybe you dont need that Angel. you only play 21 Lands and it has CMC 6, so you wont play him in turn 6. So for me its a cut. But more Bodyguards and Drillmasters.
Then i would play always 4 copies of Knight of Grace over Knight of New Benalia.

Then i would go straight to face and not go for Enchantments. But thats your way, therefore: How abaout Danitha Capashen, Paragon. More value for that way.

In Case you switch to white Weenie straight to face, i would add 4 copies History of Benalia but thats not budget, you asked for.

If you're not working on a budget, the most obvious addition would be History of Benalia.

I would like to echo some of the concerns expressed above. In order to be effective a lot of boros decks have to be very aggressive and given that you're working with mentor you may want to just dive into that instead of splitting into burn as well or, at least, splitting into in the way that you have. In that vein some really good cheap creatures with mentor would be Goblin Banneret and Sunhome Stalwart. Healer's Hawk is also a good mentor target, as it is a 1/1 and it has the added benefit of being a flyer with lifelink.

If I were making this deck I would cut a lot of the instants and sorceries, opting for 3-4 copies of both Lightning Strike and Justice Strike. Additionally, Deafening Clarion is a versatile card that you might consider adding as a replacement to Seal Away, as Seal Away has a much more limited effect than Deafening Clarion.

You might also consider the comment above regarding History of Benalia. Given that you do not have any other knights you might want to either increase the number of knights you have or swap those two out for two more Legion's Landing  Flip, as Legion has a ton of value in creature heavy decks.

As mentioned above, these are just some thoughts. Happy brewing Planeswalker!

H: History of Benalia, Legion's Landing  Flip, Benalish Marshal, Tempest Djinn, Cabal Stronghold, binder

W: some random Cube wants -- especially Phyrexian Scriptures, Wall of Omens, Grafted Wargear. Will also trade for recent Standard cards with Cube/EDH utility eg Search for Azcanta  Flip, Knight of Autumn, Deathgorge Scavenger, Ramunap Excavator...or other offers!

I think you have too many instants and sorceries for what this deck is trying to do. Moreover, too many of your creatures are two-color, which makes them harder to cast. I would cut 2x (probably all of them, to be honest) Risk Factor and 2x Lightning Strike, and I would play an additional 2x History of Benalia and an additional 1x Legion's Landing  Flip.

I would also probably go to just a single copy of Tajic, Legion's Edge. For additional creatures, I would put in 4x Dauntless Bodyguard and probably 2x Benalish Marshal, and maybe 2x or 3x Knight of Grace. The point is to try to increase the density of knights as your current list has zero knights for History of Benalia to target (other than the two tokens it makes).

I have been underwhelmed by Swiftblade Vindicator. I get that it is a decent target for mentor, but too often it caps at a single +1/+1 counter, and that just doesn't seem like good value. For the same mana cost, why not a flier like Sky Terror? Exact same mana cost, but it flies and has menace-- and it is a 2/2 instead of a 1/1.

Just some thoughts. Hope these help! Good luck!

Argy on Naya Sarkhan's Unsealing

The other concern I have is that in these colours you have no way to prevent someone from just getting rid of Sarkhan's Unsealing.

With Enchantments like History of Benalia and The Eldest Reborn seeing a lot of play, decks are packing removal like Conclave Tribunal and Crushing Canopy.
