Draw: Skullclamp , Baleful Strix , Midnight Reaper , and Consecrated Sphinx

Haste Enablers: Ogre Battledriver and Urabrask the Hidden . Alternate way to get counters asap.

Combo Wins/Emergency Lifegain: Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Kokusho, the Evening Star . Lifegain seems counterproductive but with Metallic Mimic these end games without worrying about the throne.

Random Goodies: Legion Loyalist (Trample and first strike is great and the tokens can't block part is surprisingly relevant most games), Aura Thief (meta dependent), and Spark Double (double dethrone is gross).

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks is appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa To Love Them

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.

Are you sure about Akki Rockspeaker? The problem with him is he doesn't put you ahead, mana-wise, compared to a 1-mana goblin: either you pay two mana but then have one put into your pool, or you pay one mana and have the one other mana still unused. Seeing as he's just a 1/1, he's worse than any one-mana goblin with an ability since you can't play him on the first turn. Depending on your budget, you may prefer Goblin Lackey , Legion Loyalist , Skirk Prospector , or some other goblin you can play on the first turn.

Gonna be real with ya, that's a really high curve for goblins. Maybe Skirk Prospector , Goblin Instigator , Mogg War Marshal , Legion Loyalist . I think those are just better for a tribal strategy, not to mention they're low cost and I don't hate sac to prospector on all of them. Maybe even throw in Krenko's Command , and Dragon Fodder

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.

A random card a friend of mine has had really good success out of here is Legion Loyalist . It's typically 1 red mana to surprise the shit out of your opponents, absolutely beat face and typically kill a few players with huge tokens.

hellhole3927 A lot to reply to, so forgive me if I miss anything. As I said in the earlier post, Atarka's Command would be worked into the sideboard, not mainboard. This would most likely be in place of the two Skullcrack 's. Don't think it is wholly necessary mainboard, especially as Signal Pest essentially acts as Bushwhackers 9-12 anyway.

Legion Loyalist is a card that has eluded me since this deck's conception. I'm aware how powerful he is and have always wanted him in this list in some fashion, but I have no idea where the room is. Possibly in the sideboard to help with things like Lingering Souls . That said, Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip and Toolcraft Exemplar are quite key to the deck. The synergy between Kytheon and Bomat Courier (ie. Courier allowing Kytheon to flip on turn 2 easily and then Gideon protecting Courier to allow for a load of card draw later if needed) is something I'm quite fond of and is very powerful in practise. As for Toolcraft Exemplar , he just hits like a truck.

When I speak about BTE being able to cast only Reckless Bushwhacker and Destructive Revelry , I'm aware that artifacts could be cast with them as well, however my point was that realistically, these are going to be cast beforehand. In my opinion, BTE is something that you cast when you intend to go off that turn, after emptying your hand of all other things you want to cast on the turns earlier.

I'd have to say no to adding more Kuldotha Rebirth 's as well. Having ran 3 of them in the past, this proved to be too much. Drawing two is often unnecessary. By extension, I have to disagree about Goblin Piledriver as well. Goblin's isn't really the theme here; artifacts is more so.

I do however, really like your point about Gut Shot . Realistically makes a lot of sense. I'll definitely consider it.

Adding Atarka's Command would be totally worth it in my opinion, it would act like a third bushwhacker. What I think would be best for your deck is to cut Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip for Legion Loyalist and cut Toolcraft Exemplar for Atarka's Command . I'm not sure what I would cut for Burning-Tree Emissary it was just an idea, it kinda acts like a larger Memnite . Also if you do add Atarka's Command then the green mana (from Burning-Tree Emissary ) would be able to be used for Atarka's Command , Signal Pest , Bomat Courier , Reckless Bushwhacker , and more Burning-Tree Emissary . The next things I would consider adding would be 2 more Kuldotha Rebirth , Goblin Piledriver , and Gut Shot . BTW, since 8 whack decks are usually super aggro based Gut Shot seems like a great addition here... Turn 1) drop some tiny creature/develop a board state, Turn 2) pay 2 life into Gut Shot to kill a Noble Hierarch , etc and now you can cast any 1 of your 12 Bushwhackers (assuming you add Atarka's Command and played a land for turn).
