That is a nice fast boros build.

Here are a couple of suggestions:

I think would be give the deck a little more synergy and speed.

Nice build though +1

I really like Skyknight Legionnaire . A 2/2 Flying/Haste for 1WR is nothing to snuff at.

This is a really good point. These 4-drops are strategically irrelevant in the context of this deck, especially when it is working properly. Ideally, the game should go like this:

T1: Plains , Boros Elite

T2: Mountain , Wojek Halberdiers

T3: Mountain or Plains , Skyknight Legionnaire , swing 8

T4: play land if possible, play creature if possible, swing 8, Boros Charm for 4 damage to opponent, win

I feel that more than 21 lands is excessive. Though I believe you on the Magma Jet call, I'll make the change. Perhaps I should consider replacing some or all of the 4-drops with something faster, like Soldier of the Pantheon , Ash Zealot , or Legion Loyalist .

What do you think about this?

You're really heavy on the two drops, so I'd remove some and go for more 1 drops. The only two drops I'd run are Daring Skyjek (this dude is great), Wojek Halberdiers (again 3 power for 2 is great), and Firefist Striker . Truefire Paladin is not great compared to those 3, and Akroan Hoplite is way too vulnerable and too dependent on you having a good board state. I'd support Boros Elite , Soldier of the Pantheon , Rakdos Cackler , Dryad Militant or Loyal Pegasus as one drops (I'd choose 1-3 to run as four-ofs). And getting that turn 3 battalion activation is so vital, so I'd run 4x Viashino Firstblade in addition to Skyknight Legionnaire . Maybe even 4x Minotaur Skullcleaver too, because it seems really important. I don't like those four drops, esp. since none of them have haste. Instead of Martial Glory and Arrows of Justice , I'd run Dynacharge and Fortify . Casting that at instants speed should get you consistent turn 4 wins. and I'd try to get to 21 or 22 lands.

Unless all you want out of the Skyknight Legionnaire is the flying, I would recommend Viashino Firstblade . One of my favorite cards from boros.

This deck looks Pretty Good but there are a couple of things you may want to change. 1st I think that you should defiantly put in some Boros Elite and Daring Skyjek to help trigger you battalion and create a nice chain reaction. You may want to take out the Pegasus and the Hoplites for these. I also think you should go 4 of on the Boros Reckoner in the main because of how solid he is just in general. I would also run Firemane Avenger in the main cause he is pretty solid for bringing opponents down quicker. Also I would just run 4 Sacred Foundry and the Temple of Triumph due to it being very helpful in the mana fixing, just drop a plains and the guildgate and that should be good.

Other very good Boros cards that have a home in a deck like this are, Skyknight Legionnaire , Wojek Halberdiers , Viashino Firstblade and probably even Spark Trooper

Thats all I gotta say. Good start and keep on join. Price
