ThatGrimGuy,

yes indeed. i would be running rakdos signet if i had room for it, the more ramp the better! you could also run Mind Stone, Prismatic Lens, Thought Vessel, Fellwar Stone or Basalt Monolith

alternatively you can run ritual ramp, im not a big fan cuz it only ramps for that turn/phase, but Seething Song and Cabal Ritual are also pretty strong! albiet just once, and not permanently (twice if you flashback)

Very cool deck! Since your goal is to keep it casual I'll suggest cards that are upgrades to stuff you already have, that way you can do what you've been doing just a bit faster/more consistently.

Mana Ramp:At the moment I see 7 sources of artifact ramp in your deck. I'd highly recommend increasing that to the 10-12 range, it will drastically speed up your deck.

Consider Adding:- Prismatic Lens- Fellwar Stone- Mind Stone- Rakdos Signet- Izzet Signet- Dimir Signet- Coldsteel Heart- Sphere of the Suns

Consider Removing:- Commander's Sphere- Darksteel Ingot- Worn Powerstone

Card Draw:The 6 card draw spells you have here are fine but I'd recommend adding at least 5 more, specifically card spells that help you discard into your graveyard or fill up your hand on the cheap.

Consider Adding:- Thirst for Knowledge- Careful Study- Phyrexian Arena- Read the Bones- Night's Whisper- Dig Through Time- Chart a Course - Tormenting Voice- Preordain- Brainstorm- Ponder

Consider Removing:- Winds of Rebuke- Tragic Lesson - Essence Flux- Fervor- Rolling Thunder- Unstable Obelisk- Treasure Cruise- Conjurer's Closet

Land:If you up your mana rock count to the 10-12 range, you can drop your land count down to 32-34 and have no issues.

The best way to go about improving your landbase is focusing on adding lands that enter untapped and can give you multiple colors.

Are just a few examples of lands you should consider adding in place of slower, enter tapped lands.

That's just the basic rundown of how to improve the core of your deck and make it a bit more consistent. Hopefully those ideas help!

Very cool deck! +1 from me!

I'd recommend adding more mana rocks:

More mana rocks will help caat your angels and high cmc spells more reliably.

I also think more removal would be a good idea:

I'm assuming your goal is to combo off with Marisil ASAP, so here's my suggestions:

  1. Focus on whatever combo is quickest to help streamline your strategy. Combo decks work best when they have one specific, achievable goal.

  2. Drop high CMC cards like Prismatic Geoscope or Flayer of the Hatebound and add in more reliable, low CMC cards.

  3. I'd add Lightning Greaves to help protect Marisil.

  4. Bounce spells like Capsize and Chain of Vapor to help deal with annoying permanents.

  5. Card draw like Mystic Remora, Frantic Search, Thirst for Knowledge, Preordain, Ponder, Necropotence, Phyrexian Arena, etc.

  6. More mana rocks will help you get off to a faster start as well Sol Ring, Fellwar Stone, Mind Stone, Prismatic Lens, Dimir Signet and Izzet Signet should all be here. If you run more mana rocks you can cut your land count down to 32-33 with no problems.

These are the most obvious ways I can see to improve your deck. Hopefully some of those ideas help!

Other good rocks at 2CMC:

Basically if it comes in untapped and taps for 1, it's pretty good for no money at all.

Sorry for the triple post, but I completely forgot you wanted suggestions on what to take out for more draw and ramp. My apologies! Here are the cards that I feel could be replaced:

Mark of Asylum - you would do better with more ramp or card draw in place of this

Browbeat - yes you gain 5 life off of the damage mode, but no one will ever let you draw three cards

Scroll Rack - one of the more overrated cards in EDH in my opinion. This card is insane value if you have a lot of ways to shuffle your library, but sadly Boros does not do this well.

Prismatic Lens - There are plenty of better ramp/color fixing options.

Helm of Awakening - I don't think that symmetrical effects are all that great unless you can abuse the advantage more than you opponents can. The Immortal Sun (or any mana rock) might be a better option here.

I am honestly not a fan of Book of Rass. Mind's Eye will draw you more cards for a cheaper investment, but I can see why you might include the Book in this deck.

First edit:

Out:

Zoetic Cavern - replaced with better land option

Trepanation Blade - doesn't really belong b/c it's not a mil deck

Syphon Flesh - replaced with better wipe option/ not a token deck

Stranglehold - good card, really just inspires a lot of hate in my playgroup (searching for lands

Stoneforge Masterwork - moving away from Counters/ doesn't help kaalia

Scale Blessing - moving away from counters

Righteous Cause - good card, but not a lifegain deck(will probably find its way to my Oloro deck

Prismatic Lens - deck is overflowing with mana ramp and this one doesn't help as much as the others

Master Warcraft - fun card, can't seem to use it efficiently, might add it back in

Lightkeeper of Emeria - Good early blocker, swapped for a fatty, might add it back in

Gleam of Authority - Moving away from counters

Contagion Clasp - moving away from counters

Cathars' Crusade - moving away from counters

Bomb Squad - moving away from counters/swap for fatty

In:

Reya Dawnbringer - recursion

Hall of the Bandit Lord - Haste option

Karmic Guide - recursion

Swiftfoot Boots - haste option/protect Kaalia

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight - more effective aggro

Tainted Field - land upgrade

Merciless Eviction - wipe upgrade

Steel Hellkite - fatty/wipe

Harvester of Souls - card draw

Hallowed Burial - wipe upgrade

Bogardan Hellkite - a lot of options with this fatty(spot removal, aggro, clear small tokens)

Kokusho, the Evening Star - aggro upgrade

Austere Command - wipe upgrade

Rune-Scarred Demon - tutor option
