Starstorm deals X damage to each creature.
Cycling (, Discard this card: Draw a card.)

Leave Skullclamp in if you think you can get a good amount of value off it to draw cards. I would still take Tajic out since he doesn’t really stop any board wipes not including Blasphemous Act and Starstorm You don’t have too many enter the battlefield effects for Restoration Angel to do all too much work. Valorous Stance can probably be removed since you already have instants that kill stuff better and protect your creatures better. Gamble while being one of the only tutors Boros has I don’t think it is all to necessary in this deck because it can be devestating for the tutored card to be removed.

- I was on the fence about Slayers' Stronghold because I didn't want to run too many colorless utility lands, but I'll throw it in for a few tests to see how it does!
- The thing with sorcery speed board wipes is that with Iroas' ability, I could use spells like Starstorm at instant speed after I declare attackers and all of my creatures would be safe. I threw in Fumigate instead so at least I can gain some life from the destruction at least
- Now this one I really like! I completely forgot Karmic Guide was an angel, and I was thinking I probably need some form of recursion too!
- Thanks for your suggestions! I gotta try it out now and see how it goes with your recommendations :)

Team buffs: Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran , Hero of Bladehold , Angel of Jubilation , Spear of Heliod , Balefire Liege , Hero of Oxid Ridge , Nobilis of War , Ogre Battledriver , Glory of Warfare , Marshal's Anthem .
Flying: Angel of Jubilation , Aurelia, the Warleader , Angelic Field Marshal , Tyrant's Familiar , Angelic Skirmisher , Firemane Avenger , Odric, Lunarch Marshal , Nobilis of War , Tyrant's Familiar , Victory's Herald .
Trample: Archetype of Aggression .
Haste & Double Strike: Aurelia, the Warleader , Captain Lannery Storm , Odric, Lunarch Marshal , Hero of Oxid Ridge , Ogre Battledriver , Assemble the Legion , Berserkers' Onslaught , Boros Charm True Conviction .
Taking advantage of the 2nd ability: Sword of the Animist , Lightmine Field , Powerstone Minefield , and Pyrohemia , and other instant speed damage based board wipe effects. Once your creatures are attacking they cant be damaged. This effect last until combat is totally over. So even after combat damage (but still combat phase) you can cast a spell to do damage.
I missed this stuff too: Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran , Hero of Oxid Ridge , and Hero of Bladehold they all buff my creatures when they attack so giving them extra attack phases to attack again, buffs them again. So its "battle cry x2" from the Hero's, and its +4/+0 form Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran on the second attack. Angelic Skirmisher also triggers twice. Not only for my extra combat phases, but my opponents as well. you're all going "duhhh" right, but i knew this too. Didn't realize i have been missing these triggers all the time.
As you can see it works when I remove the changes you said you had to do scotchtapedsleeve

I was just going to use vampiric and demonic for tutors when i can get them. IMO bobo and storm cauldron are too high on curve in an already high cmc deck. I have enough effects like that and the downside is big. Solemn is cool but with no way to sac it myself i have no way to abuse it. I may consider Starstorm .

Looks good! I think Savage Twister could be a Starstorm for that instant speed and cycling. And a Solemn Simulacrum would give you ramp, card draw, and it would count as two card types for Traverse the Ulvenwald .
If you wanna play even more lands a turn, Storm Cauldron gets you more landfall triggers, slows down your opponents, and it's hilarious with a Borborygmos Enraged to end a game. Borbor also goes infinite with a Dakmor Salvage , The Gitrog Monster and a library shuffler like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Gaea's Blessing .

All the cards pskinn01 says are great here are some more
Mission Briefing - basically give you a Scry 2 (in a different form) and flashback for any instant or sorcery
Turn to Frog - Great way to get rid of those annoying 10 power or 12 toughness creatures or those that are indestructible. Plus just being able to things into frogs are fun
The Mirari Conjecture Ik its not an instant or sorcery but it really good two flashback and a copyinstant or sorcery spell as actually won me games
Summary Dismissal - Board wipe for Blue
Mystic Confluence - Great Utility
Sinister Sabotage - Counterspell with Scry 1 (in a different form) sure why not?
Cryptic Command - Again Nice Utility
Frantic Search - A free draw power card
Disallow - An extremely powerful counter spell
Kira, Great Glass-Spinner - Not a instant, sorcery or wizard but free counter once each turn per creature yes please.
Rewind - A free counter spell
Counterspell -Every blue deck has it
Mana Drain -If you have it or can afford/willing to buy cough up the money for it.
Pull from Tomorrow -My favorite draw spell
Omniscience - Play whatever you want for free with no drawbacks other than the big target your painting on your back
Burn from Within - Deals with pesky indestructible
Blastfire Bolt - 5 damage and equipment destruction
Chemister's Trick - Could save your life if backed into a corner or could back your opponent in one.
Countervailing Winds - If you have a lot of cheap cards that makes this card super nice but i would save this card for the opponents big play as the opponent either loses the card or has to waste the rest of their to save it leaving you able to counter attack next if you survive.
Firemind's Foresight - Search spell for instants or sorcery spells
Apex of Power a Free cast cards from exile card
Banefire damage that can't be prevented sure
By Force - a great artifact kill spell
Crack the Earth - well you get hit as well is a quick way to get rid of a pesky card
Rekindled Flame - A burn spell that can potentially come back over ad over again
Reforge the Soul - Need a new hand?
And many more but i don't want this to get to bloated (maybe to late for that.) so i'll end it here. hope these help

No problem austintayshus! It's a fun idea definitely! Let me know how your deck list turns out and feel free to ask for any help!

Gotcha. I would just go with sac outlets, then. Phyrexian Tower just went from like $60 to $10 because of the reprint. Infernal Offering , Recurring Nightmare , Rescue from the Underworld , Victimize , and Whisper, Blood Liturgist all offer recursion. Altar's Reap , Fling , Costly Plunder , Culling the Weak , Plunge into Darkness , Vicious Offering , Devour Flesh , Merciless Resolve , Sacrifice , Collateral Damage , Burnt Offering , Carrion , Fiery Conclusion , Spontaneous Combustion , and Dredge are all better instant-speed ways to leverage Xantcha. Or you could just Inferno or Starstorm to kill the board.
