Id probably aim for around 10 mana rocks, so like Orzhov Signet, Boros Signet, Rakdos Signet, Fellwar Stone, Coldsteel Heart, Star Compass.
And then considering the whole game plan involves attacking with Kaalia, she needs more protection so she doesnt just die, like Darksteel Plate, Shielded by Faith, Gift of Immortality, Bastion Protector, Boros Charm, Gift of Doom. You probably want around 5 of those effects imho.
Your removal and boardwipes look great.
As for cuts, id say you dont need Akroma's Memorial, Serra the Benevolent, Herald of War, Angel of Condemnation, Angel of Despair, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Victory's Herald, Archangel Avacyn Flip because when she flips she kills Kaalia.

Your average cmc is pretty high for an aggressive deck, and you only have 6.5 pieces of ramp to offset that so you may find you're coming out too slow. You've got tons of huge powerful creatures but most of them don't have any way to push damage through; maybe trade two of your six haste effects for some trample(Archetype of Aggression,Siege Behemoth), flying (Victory's Herald), or Champion of Lambholt type cards. I count nine different anthem effects, but again because your creatures are so expensive you're probably not going to have many creatures out at once so those effects become less valuable. Maybe add a few efficient token producers to help take advantage of them (like Assemble the Legion, March of the Multitudes, or Hanweir Garrison/Hanweir, the Writhing Township) or just cut them for more ramp so you can get more of the big stuff out faster. Hope this helps.

Great deck. +1. Here are a few suggestions:
1 year ago
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

This deck's average CMC is very high. You're for sure going to need more ramp, which for Boros mostly means mana rocks. I'd recommend Boros Signet , Fellwar Stone , Mind Stone , Star Compass , and Boros Locket . Some cards you could consider cutting are Basandra, Battle Seraph , who shuts down all of your combat tricks, Light of the Legion , whose mentor ability is almost totally irrelevant, and Victory's Herald , who gives flying to a bunch of creatures that have already got it. You should also try to go up to closer to 37 lands with this curve.

Just a thread to share some of our more amusing games. :D I'll start:
I was playing MTG with a new friend who is just getting into the game. He's only been playing for a few weeks now and needed help designing decks. So, I came over to his house and built him a nice fun Selesnya +1/+1 counter deck using what cards he has. In it, he has a single copy of Zetalpa, Primal Dawn .
Now, I wanted to use a deck that's more of a meme deck. So, I cracked out my insanely stupid Simic Mimic Gimmick deck. This deck seeks to just make copies of anything I want, using indestructible creatures for the shell.
The game was a long and arduous one. I kept copying his creatures with Bolster and Support, making it so that our attackers and blockers were evenly matched. The goal here was to help him learn the steps and phases of the game, not out-right slaughter him.
So the game took a super long time. Eventually, he cracked out a Zetalpa, Primal Dawn . It got back to my turn and I just grinned and cast Vizier of Many Faces , copying Zetalpa for myself. He got annoyed, and progressed to cast more creatures and spells to sling +1/+1 counters on her. So, I did the exact same thing lol.
We eventually had Zetalpas that were 9/13 and a 7/11 respectively. I decided to attack, figuring I'd steadily push the Trample damage through little by little. He began to do the same. We eventually got each other down to just 1 life total, mostly for the memes of it all.
Well, I eventually top-decked Helm of the Host and laughed like an absolute madman. I equipped it onto my Zetalpa and the stupidity officially began.
I had to explain to him what it does, and that I ended up getting two Zetalpa on the battlefield once I switched over into Combat. The reason I had to explain it was because he misunderstood the Legendary rule in a prior game where he attempted to have out two Krenko, Mob Boss at the same time in a Goblin deck I built for him.
So now he's rolling his eyes and cussing me out, all in good fun mind you. It gets back to his turn and he passes. Back to me, I explain the following:
"Now, normally I can't make any copies of Zetalpa because she's Legendary. But since the token created by Helm of the Host loses it's Legendary typing, I can actually do this..."
He's like just dumbfounded and has had enough of my idiocy. But it gets worse. I happened to top-deck another Vizier of Many Faces , and proceeded to make ANOTHER copy of the Zetalpa token, lmfao
I move to combat and get ANOTHER Zetalpa token, thanks to Helm of the Host .
Needless to say, I ended up winning with about five Zetalpas - lmfao
The game, in total, lasted some 30 minutes between my stupid shenanigans and his questions. Not to mention we put three copies of Saving Grace in his deck, which really stopped me in my tracks multiple times. Seriously an under-rated card now that I've seen it in action. Anywho, When we got to round two, he quickly destroyed my Helm of the Host with his Thrashing Brontodon and hit me hard in the face with a Victory's Herald .
