Orzhov Locket Discussion

Hey, your Commanders care about two types of creatures, Dragons and Knights. This is the simplest approach to consider is add more Dragons and some Knights? A higher amount of Dragons than Knights seems better with your two Commanders because double strike with Dragons who already fly is more powerful then Knights with flying.
Dragons are high mana cost creatures therefore consider more ramp? More ramp so you can cast Dragons especially Khorvath faster. Sylvia doesn't do much until you have a Dragon on the battlefield which ramp can help with.
You can't play Gruul Locket and Orzhov Locket in a Boros Commander deck. Can only play cards that are red, white or red/white because these are the color identities of your Commanders. Cards with black and green even though they also have red or white aren't legal with Boros.
What's the budget for your deck? Cards $1 or less each to consider adding:
Mana Rocks/Other Ramp
- Boros Signet
- Talisman of Conviction
- Dragon's Hoard
- Seething Song
- Mana Geyser
- Dragonlord's Servant
- Burnished Hart
- Iron Myr
- Gold Myr
Dragons/Cards that support Dragons
- Skyship Stalker
- Dragon Hatchling
- Dragon Egg
- Lathliss, Dragon Queen
- Scourge of Valkas
- Dragon Tempest: haste for Dragons.
- Steel Hellkite
- Moltensteel Dragon
- Sarkhan's Triumph: Dragon tutor.
- Tyrant's Familiar
- Hellkite Charger
- Drakuseth, Maw of Flames
- Sarkhan the Masterless
- Dragon Mantle
Dragons who can pump their own power which is called "firebreathing" are good with double strike.
- Silverblade Paladin: soulbound can change creatures.
- Danitha Capashen, Paragon
- Thalia's Lancers: legendary card tutor.
- Mask of Memory: an equipped creature with double strike who isn't blocked does combat damage twice to an opponent meaning you draw four cards.
- Rogue's Gloves: with flying it's easier to do combat damage.
The nice thing about these equipment is the interaction with double strike. These equipment can also be repeatable draw and if the equipped creature dies, the equipment isn't destroyed, can equip another creature.
I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

Wrath of God, Rest in Peace and Merciless Eviction all seem like cards that should definitely be in here. We would also definitely recommend some more ramp. An EDH deck without Sol Ring is almost unheard of. For your colour combination it would also be recommended to add Orzhov Signet, Talisman of Hierarchy and Orzhov Locket. Then there is draw options. Phyrexian Arena, Underworld Connections, Greed all come to mind.
Hope this helps.

Significant changes made.
Moved the deck even further away from token generators and more towards self recuring non-token creatures. Also reduced the average CMC to 3.10.
KibaAlpha, I would love to get your feedback on my latest edits if you can spare some time.

KibaAlpha I hear you on the Dark Ritual and friends, I will reconsider after I get more games under my belt, my gut feeling is that I will stay away from them and continue to rely on mana rocks and treasure tokens to ramp. I expect Pawn of Ulamog , Pitiless Plunderer , Sifter of Skulls , Black Market , Revel in Riches and Smothering Tithe will be doing alot of work.
Erebos, God of the Dead is a great card and I already have a copy but I will instead add Erebos, Bleak-Hearted as soon as Theros beyond Death set is released. I'll also be adding Yawgmoth, Thran Physician for more draw.

White/Black does not have much in the way of getting extra land in to play. You need to capitalize on the lands you have.
Remember you are playing Aristocrats. You need at least 3 pieces on the field to make it work. A lot of mana is key to keep recuring your creatures and recasting.
I recommend Cabal Ritual as well.
I myself have opted to remove Lotus Petal from my own build.
Erebos, God of the Dead is high value card draw as well as keeping your opponents from gaining life.
If you are worried about life add Deathgreeter .

I know you already run a lot of good spot removal and while I hate to recommend this to you, Vindicate can be helpful of getting rid of those pesky coffers, urborg and cradles.
Also, where is your card draw? I know you hate steady card draw and prefer burst, but with Orzhov, you need card draw.
You're actually running urborg? :P Jk But for real, you're running Worn Powerstone ? I would rather run Hedron Archive , but both suck IMO. Your curve is already filled up at 3, not including your commander, so having a 4 drop that can ramp you the turn it comes into play and draw you cards later when you need it would be useful in a deck with little to no card draw. Even Orzhov Locket might be worth considering.
Something that could be fun would be Angelic Renewal . Helps recur one of your value creatures, very good with ones with nice etbs. My particular favorite would be Sun Titan . That can be an alt wincon should you need it and it isn't completely useless either.
Ever consider running the monarch land (the name escapes me at the moment). With all your defense, and the fact they need to choose between attacking you or a walker, it can provide some card draw.

Solid deck thus far, you may want to lean a bit more heavily into true instant-speed, repeatable sac outlets like Viscera Seer rather than one-off outlets like Hell's Caretaker . Only being able to activate Caretaker during your upkeep is a pretty real restriction, you'll probably be serviced better by Dread Return taking up that slot. Maybe look at Yahenni, Undying Partisan or Spawning Pit for more true sac outlets. Also, minor thing, but you could replace Orzhov Cluestone and Orzhov Locket with Talisman of Hierarchy and maybe Millikin or Gold Myr / Leaden Myr . 2 Mana rocks/dorks are so much better than 3 mana, and Millikin will probably ultimately provide more card selection for you in this deck than the cluestone or locket.
Cheers on joining the Orzhov aristocrats club! My Elenda, the Dusk Rose deck is probably my favorite deck if I had to choose.
