The goal is usually to play some rebel->get Skyshroud Poacher and then engine online.
main current strategies: Vomit dudes into play and Mirror Entity
Savra, Queen of the Golgari and a sac outlet for jankiest grave pact lock.
Otherwise try to react to the board state by derping whatever janky elf/rebel counters my opponent into play.

Argothian Elder This feels too awkward for mana fixing and I can't remember why it's there.
Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen This is one of two sources of lifegain, a lord, and... maybe not good enough?
Elvish Harbinger I'm not sure I need this many tutors, and it works poorly with poacher. Oth, tutor all color manadork ain't bad.
Elvish Visionary I'm guessing there's better versions at higher cmc now, but I may still want this one.
Izoni, Thousand-Eyed I really just want to play her a time or three and see if she works. She's very mana hungry all around though.
Reveille Squad This may just be win-more, and has to be telegraphed before attackers are declared
Timberwatch Elf Imaculate magistrate is a better version of this card, but having both has made the difference before
Wirewood Channeler This is the worst version of this effect I have, but does tap for any color.
Aura Shards This card is gross bonkers... BUUUUTTTT i only have so many, and this may be the deck that needs it LEAST?
Selesnya Signet This and sol ring are my only mana rocks... if I'm running no others, I probably don't need this one.
Reito Lantern If it's unclear, this is graveyard hate and ETB self tuck. It's... it's cute. I don't know if it's good. But it may be cute enough to keep.

I didnt see if anyone pointed this out yet. Just in case no one mentioned this yet, what about the Sunforger engine/toolbox in the deck? It's very boros, very powerful and will give you repeatable burn and lifegain if you put the engine in with support for it. A basic recap is:
Load the deck with quality instants you can tutor with Sunforger. Add in equipment tutors to find the sunforger. Then add a recursion engine with cards like Reito Lantern to put the instants back in your library after you cast them. You can, for example, then do stuff like cast any of these once per turn if you wanted: Comeuppance, Settle the Wreckage, Warleader's Helix or Radiating Lightning. Or any other instants as long as they are cmc 4 or less and white or red.

Mistveil Plains and Chance for Glory, in conjunction with Sunforger and Angel's Grace, will allow you to take a couple extra turns. With enough mana and a way to untap Mistveil (e.g. Deserted Temple), or just something like Junktroller, you can even take infinite turns!
Sunforger can find Tithe which can find mistveil, so the setup is actually pretty easy once you have Sunforger. Deserted Temple could be found with Expedition Map or Weathered Wayfarer, who in turn can be found by all sorts of rangers/recruiters (if you wanted to dedicate more of the deck to being a Boros infinite turns combo haha): Ranger of Eos, Ranger-Captain of Eos, Recruiter of the Guard, Imperial Recruiter.

@ enigmatiCertianty It doesn't need much to be explosive, but most of the cards it does need are getting up there in price, lol. Most notably Enlightened Tutor. Tithe isn't incredibly cheap, though, so the strategy is not as budget friendly as it used to be. XD
If that's not an issue, though, Tithe, Mistveil Plains, and Enlightened Tutor are the main cards you need for that strategy. I'd also recommend Reito Lantern for redundancy, alongside Orzhov Charm and Rakdos Charm for additional shenanigans if you ever wanna take it for a spin. I'd understand if you thought that was too much work, though, lol.
Happy gaming in either case. :)

Ah, derp, lol. I didn't see those. XD
As for Pull from Eternity, it basically allows you to pull Teferi's Protection from exile into your graveyard so that you can slip it back into your deck and sunforge it again with Mistveil Plains. It also allows you to get back anything else your opponents take out with exile cards as they can be pretty common in my experience. On top of that, if someone exiles your graveyard at some point, it can mitigate the damage done.

First of all, looking at it 'on paper', I don't know how this thing works, but it works! Here are my thoughts (whether they amount to anything or not is up to you...)
First, the curve on this is absurd, especially given the mana. Would some more mana production early game be helpful? I noticed the Sarkhan, Fireblood is missing, so it seems maybe not? Still, Faeburrow Elder seems like it might be a busted mana creature for the deck.
I would still look to sub more expensive reanimation for lower CMC reanimation...since then you can activate more other abilities, cast more spells, etc with your mana. Also, more versatile reanimation might be good, considering how often cards like your Sarkhans and your 'gateways' blown up. Perhaps think of replacing things like Fearsome Awakening and Unburial Rites with things like Animate Dead (only 2cmc, can take my things too) and Obzedat's Aid (gets your planeswalkers, artifacts, and enchants back), or even Beacon of Unrest.
Since you're a graveyard-centric deck, some things to salvage your graveyard in case someone decides they need to exile all your dragons might be in order. You have continuous effects like Reito Lantern or Bow of Nylea (bonus points for being cute with Balefire Dragon), or you can do something that serves multiple purpose like Perpetual Timepiece. Cauldron does this somewhat as well. Again, not sure how much of an issue this is.
A few cards I was unimpressed with: Verix Bladewing, Praetor's Council, Sarkhan, Dragonsoul, Darksteel Ingot, Mirror Gallery, Palace Siege, Ephemerate (for this one, I would personally go back to Cloudshift, so Dragonlord Silumgar can permanently steal a creature).
Some ideas: Temur Ascendancy, Assassin's Trophy/ Beast Within/ Generous Gift/ Anguished Unmaking (some very general target removal, hit anything really stupid that's bothering you), Dragonlord Atarka, Dragonlord Ojutai (I think you were working on getting Atarka...)
