Hey, just a few suggestions for budget boros weenie that I think are worth having a think about.
Doomed Traveler isn't a bit hitter, but is removal and wrath protection, and can teach about card value. Dragon Hunter, one mana 2/1 with a slight upside, can't complain about that really, basically an Elite Vanguard. Goblin Glory Chaser is a one mana 2/2 menace (in theory), a different mechanic to play with, and can hit hard. Another new mechanic for the deck, and another lesson in value are Nyxborn Rollicker, and Nyxborn Shieldmate. Another 2 power for one mana is Rakdos Cackler, not very thematic but fits for power and colour. Then there is the boss of weenie, the awesome top man himself, the Selfless Cathar! So much love for him. He's a great card for new players to play and learn with.
When building a deck that is going wide then Akroan Hoplite can get big. Not all that exciting but Cerodon Yearling is fast at least. Teaching about value and the dangers of going wide, you can have cards that go tall such as Sunhome Guildmage, and Truefire Paladin a bit as well.
I'm not excited by the enchantments you have, I'd rather individual ones that can boost them over cards that have little effect, or are defensive such as Brave the Sands. Just go aggressive with things such as Ordeal of Purphoros, and Madcap Skills. Swap the three mana Fervor for the awesome Expedite. It does what you need by not slowing you down later on, it allows you to run fewer lands (curving at two or with a few three drops I'd be happy with 20 lands), and it doesn't cost you a card. If you were spending more on it then Legion's Initiative is all sorts of awesome.
Just a few things to think about.

It is not really an official format by any means. You can adjust starting lifetotals and even deck sizes - my group plays with 50 card decks and 30 life.
There is a list of Pedh generals on this site somewhere. I would suggest avoiding everything that says hexproof on the general. Lawmage with Steel of the Godhead is incredibly uninteractive and ends games easily.
I played an izzet spells-matter deck with Fluxcharger and the helm and pretty much every flashback and rebound spell. My friends had decks with Noxious Ghoul Zombie tribal, boros agro with Sunhome Guildmage tokens, voltron Lorescale Coatl with counterspells and pump and draw, Ruthless Deathfang control...

So I realized halfway through this that the tokens would have to connect but decided to finish because I was already committed to it. Most of those also assume an evasive creature to copy in order to work. I have gone back through and bolded the ones I think could actually work. Mana from creatures could be Bear Umbra, Savage Ventmaw, or mana dorks.
- Elemental Mastery + Breath of Fury
- Feldon of the Third Path + Breath of Fury + 3 mana from creatures
- Felhide Spiritbinder + Breath of Fury + 2 mana from creatures
- Goblin Rabblemaster + Breath of Fury
- Hammer of Purphoros + Breath of Fury + anything that puts tokens in on attack (Geist of Saint Traft is the one i am thinking might work)
- Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Breath of Fury
- Rakdos Guildmage + Breath of Fury + 4 mana from creatures
- Rakka Mar + Breath of Fury + 1 mana from creatures
- Satyr Nyx-Smith + Breath of Fury + 3 mana from creatures
- Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper + Breath of Fury
- Splinter Twin + Breath of Fury
- Sunhome Guildmage + Breath of Fury + 4 mana from creatures

Nice, deck, though dont you think there are only 4 copies of your main wincon of your deck and mostly whole deck is based about it. I would add Rain of Gore. It has the same effect as Tainted Remedy does and it doesnt affect you much. Also i would get rid of Burst Lightning for another Lightning Bolt. Selesnya Charm isn't that bad, perhaps you would better use some Boros Charms instead. Sunhome Guildmage does no real effectivity in this deck, and i would get some bigger beatstick like Loxodon Smiter, Boros Reckoner. I think Mizzium Mortars belong to sideboard and some black spotted removal would do better.

I see in your maybe list are 4 Lightning Bolt and 4 Path to Exile. A RW deck has to have a really good reason not to run those 8. The bolts can supplement your damage if need be and you need someway to deal with flyers and large creatures as tokens won't do it. And gives you a turn 1 play (Bolt - of course want to avoid using Path) which your deck is lacking.
I would remove Hellion Eruption and Aurelia, the Warleader which are too costly at 6. Drop 2 Nobilis of War as again costly and doesn't help on defence. Drop 3 Sunhome Guildmage - you are overloaded at CMC=2 spells (you have 17) and the other spells are stronger with your token gameplan - alternative is drop 1 Sunhome Guildmage and 2 Legion's Initiative (move those to sideboard for Control). Drop 1 Ogre Battledriver to reduce the level of concentration at CMC 4. That then gives you the 8 spots for the new spells to add in, and drops the average CMC from the current high level of 3.33.

I like the idea here, a heroic deck isn't bad, but i think that this Deck is silly unbalanced.
First of all you don't have the correct amount of some spells:
That was only in the instant part, but in the creatures you have a little disorder too xD (as always, this is just my opinion).
Anax and Cymede x4 is a waste, you are limited to a 1 in the battlefield because is Legendary. I think that x2 are more accurate.
The Boros Guildmage is a nice card, but you only need x3.
For me Sunhome Guildmage and Labyrinth Champion are completly useless here. Labyrinth Champion is too heavy and cant be returned by Tethmos High Priest and Sunhome Guildmage is overshadowed by Boros Guildmage.
Anyway, this is just my vision of this deck, in any case, nice job ;)

I'd personally cut the two vivid lands for 2 basics - maybe cut some of the other ability lands as well. Looming Spires, Teetering Peaks and Sandstone Bridge might serve you better as basics that come in untapped. However, maybe playing Retreat to Emeria and/or Retreat to Valakut would possibly be an idea?
2 life isn't a whole lot on Kabira Crossroads, either - It's just a 20th of your starting life total. Other sources of life gain might be better - especially, say, a Loxodon Warhammer. Giving Tajic trample and lifelink as well as a bit of extra power can't be denied.
Another good thing to slap onto Tajic (or anything, to be fair!) is a Chariot of Victory. Those keywords are so good. Avarice Amulet might be worth considering, because, hey, Tajic's never gonna die, gives him vigilance to allow him to block with his indestructibility, some power, and even some card draw on top of that, something that R/W tends to struggle with in commander.
Another card to help with card draw would probably be Mentor of the Meek. You're going to be playing so many little creatures, so why not add 1 mana to draw a card? Works even nicer with token producers, too.
Some other cards worth considering are Mobilization to get a steady flow of soldiers from spare mana, Sunhome Guildmage does the same and allows you to get more power when swinging with a lot of creatures.
I've never been too good with cutting down cards, but I'd probably cut Goblin Piledriver since you don't really have enough goblins to make it worth playing, Konda, Lord of Eiganjo because as neat as he seems, he's just a 3/3 for 7 most of the time, and I've never really personally liked Preeminent Captain, even in a soldier tribal deck. Seems good on paper, but in my experience with playing it, it's just underwhelming.
