Looks good so far. Something I would suggest right off the bat is adding enchantment removal, because you have some artifact removal but I didn't see any enchantment removal. I recommend Return to Dust or something similar.
Some cards that don't seem to fit with the theme are Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Hellrider, Figure of Destiny, and Luminarch Ascension. The cards are good, but they don't seem to fit with your deck. For example, Luminarch Ascension is good but if you're playing an aggro deck with no protection (that is, you aren't running Ghostly Prison, Crawlspace, or Norn's Annex) then chances are people are going to get grumpy at you and swing unapologetically, resulting in you losing life. Also, Stoneforge Mystic is a great card, but you're only running 4 equipment, so is it really worth it to have her in there?
Overall, my biggest suggestions would be to add at least one enchantment removal, at least one board wipe (Wrath of God or something), more token generators, and more card draw. Card draw and ramp are the hardest things to find in boros. You've done a good job putting in some ramp like Sol Ring, Boros Signet, and Thought Vessel. I would even suggest Land Tax, if you have the money for it. Some other things for card draw would be Mind's Eye or Mask of Memory (which would also help with Stoneforge). I recommend putting in Enlightened Tutor or Idyllic Tutor--they will help you immensely when trying to control your board!
The last thing I'll say is I notice you only have 67 cards in your main board, which I'm assuming means you're leaving 33 spots open for land. In boros, that is way too low. you'll definitely need at least 36.
Keep up the good work. Let me know if you have any questions.

Yes!! There are many ways to cut costs in Kaalia of the Vast, you can easily cut $600 to $650 in lands alone. To keep the consistency you may need to trade fetching/dual lands in for some enters tapped scry lands, but even if you lose 1-3 turns of speed, it is still viable. Ash Barrens.
There is a great article on some to the creatures, Kaalia of the Vast - The Benchwarmers. I found it quite a fun article when I read it, and the big Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Rune-Scarred Demon with big red "CUT" printed on them is pretty funny. There are many great A/D/D that have low financial value that are quite excellent!
Could go in a dragon direction with Oros, the Avenger or protection in Deathless Angel. Admonition Angel can be superstar in the right build, Archangel Avacyn Flip is down in price, Archfiend of Depravity is a barg-oon, Bruna, the Fading Light can give you a nice Brisela, Voice of Nightmares. Ob Nixilis, Unshackled is awesome, Maralen of the Mornsong. Reya Dawnbringer can also be quite powerful.
Really creature wise your only losing Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Balefire Dragon that are over $10. Some of the other guys like Dark Confidant and Serra Ascendant or Stoneforge Mystic are really just fluff and can easily be changed out.
Hope some ideas here or in the article.

I think the current ban philosophy is to eliminate critical pieces of overpowered decks that are played exclusively or almost exclusively in those decks. This reduces the impact on "acceptable" decks while nerfing the "unacceptable" ones.
It does take the card away from players who want to use it in unconventional ways, but maintaining the simplicity of the ban list is of greater benefit than managing to the exception. Less confusion is better.
Back when Cawblade decks got hit in Zendikar-Scars Standard, WOTC allowed Stoneforge Mystic to still be played as long as it was in an unmodified event deck (which had been released shortly before the ban, if I recall correctly). You could do some research as to how that panned out; most players in my area just didn't bother with it.

So, for midrange, in my opinion you have a few colour combos.
Green/White, of course Eldrazi Displacer still, but you have mana dorks in the form of Noble Hierarch or Birds of Paradise, a top end that does a lot of work in World Breaker, and a lot of good generic hate.
You can go mono-white for Death and Taxes style stax with efficient beaters. Vryn Wingmare etc
You can also go colourless Stompy with Sol-Lands and just 2-6 mana beats.

My biggest priority want right now is 1x Thoughtseize. I'm willing to overtrade for it. Also looking for 3x Knight of the Reliquary (any set is fine), 1x Flooded Strand, and it's a bit of a stretch but Wasteland if anyone is willing to part with them.
I have the following cards for trade, and more listed in my binder.
1x Windswept Heath HP
1x Blood Moon
1x Abrupt Decay

Thanks for the interest. I currently have a trade in the works for a Stoneforge Mystic, but if it doesn't go through I'll let you know. I looked through your binder and there isn't much else I'm interested in right now.
