Great deck. Tried it by proxy. It's faster then expected. The Magmaquake as instant boardwipe is rare, comes unexpected. It's great. I also included Arcbond ; also intant boardwipe. Because it works great.

And I replaced the planeswalker with a Pyroblast / Red Elemental Blast to counter the counter from the Dragonstorm

I second Sunforger . But I disagree about it not being that good. It protects your board with Teferi's Protection , Debt of Loyalty , Deflecting Swat and Boros Charm , it removes creatures with Swords to Plowshares , Path to Exile and my favorite: Settle the Wreckage , it kills other problematic permanents wit Disenchant , Chaos Warp or Wear / Tear , can shut players down with Silence , Abeyance or Orim's Chant , and in my deck, it wins the game by searching and casting both Gideon's Sacrifice and Arcbond on the same Indestructible creature. It will even find the Lightning Bolt to start the chain.

Sunforger is one of the best boros equipments, at least if you can cheat a bit on the equip cost. But we have Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist , Brass Squire , Puresteel Paladin , Sigarda's Aid , Halvar, God of Battle  Flip and a few others to help with that

I like targeting an Indestructible creature with Arcbond and Gideon's Sacrifice before it takes damage from something, though I usually need Sunforger to consistently do that, which should fit the budget. My Indestructible creature of choice would be Brash Taunter which is a relatively expensive card, but something like Cathar's Companion would work just as well.

When both effects are active on the creature, and it takes any damage, Arcbond will trigger. It will deal that much damage to each other creature and each player, including yourself. This will trigger Gideon's Sacrifice , preventing that damage, dealing it to the creature instead. That will trigger Arcbond again, repeating the process. The loop can't be stopped, and will continue until no players have any life left except yourself.

Not in a draw, but the game would result in all the slow-play warnings necessary to start advancing the boardstate again.

A draw would be caused by a loop that feeds back into itself. Like a Brash Taunter enchanted with Pariah and targeted with Arcbond , with an opponent reacting to the Taunter's fight ability by flashing in a Selfless Squire . The Arcbond will try to damage all players, but neither will take damage. The Pariah deals that damage to the Taunter instead, causing the exact same thing to happen again. If nobody can remove the Taunter or the Pariah, the loop will go on forever without any advancement to the game, resulting in a draw. I actually drew a game of commander this way yesterday.

Sure thing! Justice actually enables infinite damage with a lot of the things you already have, for example:

Arcbond plays a similar role, except that it's even better than Justice as it has the self-damaging effect while also applying the damage-redirection effect of something like Mogg Maniac to any creature. So you could have infinite damage with Arcbond + Tajic + Pariah.

Sunforger essentially acts as a second copy of Arcbond, Boros Charm, or Martyrdom , making the Sunforger super valuable as it can fulfill any role in the combo.

Gratuitous Violence is another cool one because on an indestructible, martyred Boros Reckoner (or similar dude) you can target yourself continuously with Reckoner's redirect trigger to keep multiplying the damage up to a lethal amount, then fire it at an opponent. At worst Violence is letting you two-hit opps with Tajic, which is still pretty good.

Just some food for thought!
