Wind-Scarred Crag Discussion

Conventional wisdom says that lands that come into play tapped like Wind-Scarred Crag and Temple of Triumph are not what you want in modern because of the loss of tempo. To improve things a little replace the Wind-Scarred Crag with Clifftop Retreat, then if you have the budget replace two of the Temple of Triumph with two Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, this should help your mana base a fair bit.
Your also lacking one drops, so often you will be doing nothing turn one, that's ok but you need to know it is a weakness of your deck. If you weren't aiming to have everything by red/white I'd suggest Signal Pest, since you are I'm not sure what to suggest outside of Figure of Destiny, which will eat removal, but might be an option.
I hope that's of some help, have fun brewing your deck.

Without knowing your Dragon deck, my first thought is to avoid Reflecting Pool in favor of dual lands like, depending on budget, Wind-Scarred Crag or Stomping Ground. Also, if you don't have them, check out Dragonlord's Servant and Dragonspeaker Shaman.

Hi! Got some suggestions!
mana base suggestions:
- Arcane Lighthouse
- Battlefield Forge
- Boros Garrison
- Clifftop Retreat
- Command Beacon
- Command Tower
- Evolving Wilds
- Needle Spires
- Reflecting Pool
- Scavenger Grounds
- Temple of the False God
- Temple of Triumph
- Wind-Scarred Crag
Treasonous Ogre is good, use all that lifegain to fuel X-Spells!
Definitely try Sunforger!
Maybe start by cutting:
- Braid of Fire
- Extraplanar Lens
- Abbot of Keral Keep
- Bonfire of the Damned
- Subterranean Tremors
Hope some of this helps!

Hello! Welcome to EDH! And you're Playing Boros! My favorite color combination!
Since your budget is low for now I'll try to keep all suggestions to under $5, and try my best to keep them under $2. Sometimes it's difficult but hey, you only need to get one for each deck haha!
Since your new to the format, lets go over some EDH staples. There are cards that, more of less, go in every commander deck.
Staples: Sol Ring is the #1 best staple card in the format. If you plan on doing EDH pick up a few. Boros Signet(and all other color-combo signets) ramp and color fixing. Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots for protection and haste. Burnished Hart, Solemn Simulacrum is ramp and card draw. Commander's Sphere, Hedron Archive and Mind Stone ramp and serve as draw if needed. Finally, Command Tower goes in every deck.
You'll notice those are all artifacts or lands. That's what makes them so good(and sometimes pricey).
Next are some solid options in red and white that can pretty much go in any red or white deck.
Boros Staples: Swords to Plowshares, Sun Titan(need low curve to really be useful), Sunforger(need good instant package to really be useful, I can help with that if interested), Return to Dust, Path to Exile(as a modern player you might have some already haha), Wear / Tear, Wrath of God, Sword of the Animist, Vandalblast, Chaos Warp, and Elspeth, Sun's Champion(pricey but to good not to suggest. My favorite card I'm biased).
Now, a simple Commander deck-building template to help you out. This is a rough outline of an EDH deck and by no means is the end all be all. You have a good start already!
64 spells(including your commander)
Of these 64 spells: 7-9 RAMP spells. 8-10 CARD-DRAW spells. 6-8 REMOVAL spells. 2-4 BOARD-WIPE spells. The other 27ish spells are creatures, tutors, recursion, graveyard hate, utility, etc etc.
So here are some suggestions. I'll repeat some or most of the staples I already mentioned.
Lands: You have a good start, but think about adding: Command Tower, Ash Barrens(getting a reprint, price will drop), Battlefield Forge, Clifftop Retreat($$$ sorry, it's a good one though), Evolving Wilds, Temple of the False God(counts as ramp too!), Temple of Triumph(make that Temple of SCRYumph! Hehehe), and Wind-Scarred Crag.
Ramp: Boros is notorious for it's weakness of ramp and card draw, so we have to make up for it with a lot of artifacts. Consider: Boros Signet, Coldsteel Heart, Commander's Sphere, Fellwar Stone, Fire Diamond, Marble Diamond, Burnished Hart, Sword of the Animist Hedron Archive, Mind Stone, and most importantly Sol Ring.
Card-Draw: The already mentioned Commander's Sphere, Hedron Archive and Mind Stone fit here too. It's great to double down on categories to make room for more cool stuff. Solemn Simulacrum, Land Tax(staple for those who can afford it does not ramp but draws you 3 lands which is good), Skullclamp(is amazing with all the tokens), Well of Lost Dreams(good with lifegain)
That's as far as I'll go for now.
There's a crash course in EDH! Good luck, have fun, and feel free to hit me with any questions!

definitely add like one or two lands, cut
if you don't have enough lands to replace all these, keep the ones you like most

I like the general! This could develop into a nasty deck guy!
Possible cuts Command Tower is this worth the price?All the cycling lands. Will there be a point where you won't want to play a land? This deck could be mana hungry.
anafenza, kin-tree spirit, Murderous Redcap and a sac outlet is infinite damage
shaman's trance can only cast stuff like flashback, retrace or some ability that allows you to cast it from the graveyard. It's not like Memory Plunder
I think terashi's grasp type effects are better as instants. What about the one the exiles artifacts or enchantments and has cycle, Forsake the Worldly
Remeber alesha can bring back 0/0's that ETB with +1/+1 counters. maybe do a gatherer search for some of those?
I think you have a good start, now it's time to search for the hidden gems to make it great! Have fun tinkering with it

Since the deck is not standard legal... maybe use Wind-Scarred Crag to gain a life, if you're gonna play a tapped land. might as well get something out of it. But if you trying to stay boros themed, may use Boros Garrison?
