Mark of Asylum
Prevent all noncombat damage that would be dealt to creatures you control.
Mark of Asylum Discussion

Mark of Asylum seems like pretty sweet tech for making all the fight effects one-sided. Unless I'm mistaken on how that works.

I think your sideboard could use some improvement.
At the moment, you have very little to protect yourself against burn and other spells that would target you. Leyline of Sanctity would work well. As a budget alternative, you could consider Aegis of the Gods .
You may also want to think about protecting your creatures with Mark of Asylum .
To make room for these cards, I would consider dropping Asceticism and reducing the number of Damping Sphere , Leyline of the Void , and Knight of Autumn . Especially Leyline of the Void, since you can't cast it (this slot would be better served by Rest in Peace or even Sentinel Totem in Selesnya anyway). You already have plenty of hexproof cards, so Asceticsm is expensive for the effect.

I thought of you right away when I saw this one, congrats. My musings, hopefully it's not all Captain Obvious:
You seem to have already picked up on it but Feather can recur spells on the end of each turn so Instants are a bit preferable (and Flash-enablers)
I'm not sure how Flashback & Jump-Start interacts with Feather's ability, but if it turn out to be OK spells with that are a bit less dependent on your commander being out since you can cast them once from your hand without her, and then safely recur them again once she's on the field. Some combination of Recoup , Past in Flames or even Jaya Ballard might also be used to enable the recursion of lost spells.
No Sunforger ? Seems pretty perfect here, for more than two reasons

These are a good looking first 41 cards, now you just need the last 59! :)
You might consider taking a look at my Firesong and Sunspeaker list! I went in the direction of protecting my creatures from damage with cards like Mark of Asylum and Light of Sanction, but going with Boros Reckoner, Spitemare, and the new Truefire Captain is a perfectly viable and valid route to take Firesong and Sunspeaker! You might also consider the infinite lifegain combo with F&S and Chant of Vitu-Ghazi. Otherwise, it looks like you're on the right track for an awesome and fun deck :)

And yes; the name was meant to be a shoutout to a Doctor Who episode that's a Tour de Force as well; though the Azbantium part might be a spoiler... X/
Before we start, I'd like to give out a shout out to DespairFaction for supporting this (albeit) even harder cause to do than Boros Stax.
According to him (I think...?), this kind of deck needs stuff to slowdown opponents before they get the upper hand. Since Firesong & Sunspeaker is known for Red Nonpermanent Lifegain via Burn, I wanted this to be the primary clause. Actually, all this time, my Prime Directive is to Promote Boros from its current highest tier from 3 to 2.5 at worst. To add upon the Red card idea, I do not want White stuff promoting Lifegain as it doesn't promote enough Burn in return. I already have quite a lot of X-Burn, but no other consistent burn as well. That said, bottom line: I would love to see stuff in Boros Colors that can lockdown certain strategies in cEDH. If you can find any, even if it's an Artifact, don't be afraid to post it in the link above.

Hi GCNDAN3702! I'm glad to see you want to help. :)
Talking about cards that work against each other, Mark of Asylum seems to block Boros Reckoner's and Spitemare's abilities. Therefor, maybe it would be better to cut the Marks for Rite of Passage. Or maybe neither of them are needed? :)
Searing Meditation has turned out to be a bit overkill, at least in my opinion and in the current build. There are often other cards that does more for the cost that it takes to activate its ability. Manabarbs on the other hand is, when paired with Tamanoa, a bomb. Is what you mean that Tamanoa should still be in the build? :) All the damage, painlands and Manabarbs especially, seem to hurt too much without it. But then, there is one issue still. There is only 4 of Tamanoa. But maybe a playset of Sun Droplets can work as an alternative as you say. :)
Anyways, thanks for taking time to help!
