Hunted Witness Discussion

Not Bad. I like the idea behind it, alot actually. Also I love Orzhov. Do you think there are some better options over Hunted Witness for one drops? or more Afterlife-like creatures. Synergy works great with that ability and the deck looks good already but wondering if there were some other cards to add some more tokens. Not a lot but seems a little short, and as much as I like Divine Visitation I'm not quite sure 4 of them are necessary. I'll be composing a deck like this myself soon. Good luck with the deck :)
When I hear and see Orzhov I think of Spirits and Enchantments. I may not be a big help because I'm trying not to be to spoiled to much by Ravnica Allegiance cards but if your interested, more spirit cards would be nice. Thats just me though, apologies for me trying to wait for spoils haha

Did some testing, found Hunted Witness and Leonin Warleader to being a big help along with some of your cards like Haazda Marshal . I actually don't own every card I mentioned unfortunately nor all of yours but I did get a feel for the deck and how it works. I would go the Lifelink-Token strategy. Create tokens with haazda and leonin while also having heroic reinforcements to back them up. Similar things like that. Mentor of the meek is good because of card draw. Warboss creates more tokens which supplements haazda further alongside leonin. In other words your deck works, but other than ajanis pridemate and leonin, I found everything else staying pretty low in power and toughness. Maybe if I had the pride of conquerors it would've been better but thats why I use heroic reinforcements in its place for now. Otherwise Good luck with the deck building!
Hope this helps out a bit more :).

Hey there, not a bad deck idea. I'll share with you some knowledge of what I know on Boros. +1 by the way :). Also be prepared for a ridiculously long comment because I type alot haha. Just my thoughts.
Boros definitely has to be aggressive, which you have done well with for the most part. Although I can add that along with aggression for Boros you will need things to boost them up, it seems a bit like you would lose creatures rather quickly without extra removal or perhaps something similar to the mentor system. Mainly against other red decks and such. banefire is a nice card for sure, although some Lightning Strike makes for a better 2 drop removal spell as banefire would cost 4 mana in the same sense (Banefire is good for later game however). If your going to go tokens, you may even consider 1 or 2 Divine Visitation for lots of 4/4 angels. Or even Dawn of Hope . However its a little costly mana wise but something decently good for a deck like this if thats the prime focus. Maybe consider Hunted Witness or Heroic Reinforcements ? Reinforcements is an amazing card I find for boros honestly since it not only gives two soldiers with haste but everything gets +1/+1 til end of turn, great for all the creatures you'll have. My other suggestion for now would be, Leonin Warleader or Resplendent Angel . If your on a budget I'll compose a list after playtesting this.
Adanto Vanguard is a good card, but I'm not entirely sure it should be in this deck unless its for that extra 2 damage as it attacks, pay 4 life indestructable bonus. Its best for pure lifegain decks with either vampires or lifelink since to save him thats a lot of life to pay for keeping it alive. Ajani's pridemate is good, very, and noticing the lifelink token theme, it becomes powerful except doesn't create tokens, good for power though, that you can leave in unless your aiming for a different theme. Goblin Instigator is a weak card obviously, but not a bad way to get 2 creatures to start with. Builds up the tokens a little bit to.
Pride of conquerors is good to, up to you how much of those you'd like to keep.
I'll playtest this and some other cards along with it in MTG Arena and see what other advice I am able to help with. Otherwise glad you enjoy your deck so far. Maybe I will to. Looks like something to build off of.

First of all, I must say that this seems like a pretty cool deck! I am also super hyped for an Aristocrats deck I want to build with the new set. The build I'm going for is much more Aggro, with quite a lot of recursion for a normal Aggro deck. You can check it out here if you want! :D
I like a lot your idea though, you seem much more able to abuse the token generators. Compared to the version I'm considering, this deck can't be as explosive, but it seems it has a much better late game than my version.
However, there's a couple suggestions I want to make in case it might be better for this version. I think Priest of the Forgotten Gods will be an all-star in Aristocrats. Yes, two creatures is a lot to sacrifice, but it enables so much! You make them sac a creature, you add two black mana and you draw a card! You could easily sac the Reassembling Skeleton and a token, for example, and use the black mana to bring back the skeleton. If you have Teysa on the field, and sac creatures with Afterlife, you get as little as four tokens! Or ping four times with Judith! Those two last examples are a bit Christmaslandy, but I think the Priest is one of the best sac outlets in the new set. I was proxy testing with a friend, and sometimes it's just absurd!
Also, despite the presence of both Lava Coil and Vraska's Contempt , I encourage you to include more Seraph of the Scales . If they try to exile it, you could sacrifice it to Pitiless Pontiff , to the Priest if you end up including it, or even to some cheap removal such as Final Payment or Vicious Offering (in case you face indestructible creatures in your meta). I only have two in my list, but I try to keep it more low on CMC. And still I might include another one! haha
Finally, I would definitely include some removal Mainboard, either Mortify or Bedevil in your sideboard are great cards (although Mortify is sometimes easier to cast). Oh! And Hunted Witness or Legion's Landing Flip might be nice includes, just because they fit on the curve and are pretty good cards on their own.
Well, that's basically it! I'm sorry for such a long comment I wrote ^^' In general, I would say it looks like a pretty cool list. Good luck and have fun brewing!

Played around with it for a bit, and I felt consistently bloated on sacrifice outlets and never had enough fodder for them. I'd like to see the Plaguecrafters and Mortify come out for two more Hunted Witness , two more Reassembling Skeleton , and one more Tithe Taker . I'm also not sold on Ministrant of Obligation, and I would say those could be swapped for 3x Militia Bugler to help dig for both Priest of Forgotten Gods and better sacrifice fodder. Additionally, I'd pull the Demon of Catastrophes and one of the Poison-Tip Archers (if not more) for 2x Desecrated Tomb
You're going to be able to gum up the board, so smaller creatures shouldn't be nearly as much of a problem. I'd recommend swapping the Ritual of Soot for 3x Kaya's Wrath which will give you answers to Carnage Tyrant. I'd also pull the Revival // Revenge for 2x Find / Finality which gives you better card advantage and access to more boardwipes if needed. I'd also pull the Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants for an additional copy of Vraska, Golgari Queen ; as much as I like what Ajani is doing here, Vraska's uptick will generate you far more advantage and her downtick gives removal options.
For your win-con, you want Divine Visitation . You've plenty of token generation, and it'll only take a couple angels to close out the game. Rampage of the Clans can definitely come out for one copy, but we'll want to find room for a second somehow. We'd also like a third copy of Priest of Forgotten Gods , but as with the Divine Visitations I'm not too clear on where to trim without playtesting the other changes first. Likely, we can pull out the two leftover Poison-Tip Archers and possibly only run 3 Militia Buglers, but we'd have to see.

I thought of including Vindictive Vampire , but the thing is what to cut for it. Most, or actually all of the sacrifice outlets deal damage or cause to loose life. The main synergy is to sacrifice Hunted Witness or Footlight Fiend to the Priest, get them back with the Dead Revels (for free, because the Priest gives you mana)... That's why I don't like cutting Revival // Revenge or the Dead Revels, they enable so much synergy.
On the other hand, I do think that Seraph of the Scales is much better than the Vampire. I would have to test for it, but I would swear that the Angel can dead much more damage than the Vampire, despite all the drain Triggers, during the game.
But thanks for the suggestion! As I said, I did consider it for this deck. And you might be right, it might be a better include than some of the cards in here. Thanks for commenting! I really appreciate it! :D

Hey I think you have a lot of 4 drops. I think Hunted Witness , Mortify , Resplendent Angel , Lyra Dawnbringer , Militia Bugler , Fungal Infection all might be worth consideration to help this deck curve a bit. Cheers :)
