The deck is built pretty budget - so i think several upgrades are possible. This is mostly in the ramp department though. For example Dockside Extortionist and Mana Crypt would both be good includes. Another card could be Deflecting Swat , though you don’t need it for your commander very often it can help protecting something important. The only payoff i’m sure i’d include if i had it is Fiendish Duo . Other than that i feel there’s a lot of options that come down to preference. (See also the maybeboard)

I considered Golden Guardian  Flip and Alena, Kessig Trapper . I did not end up trying them because the setup cost seems too high.

Guardian: needs another creature and 2 mana to fight before its effect goes off and the ramp is nice, but spending your turn making a 4/4 isn’t that great

Alena: is either 5 mana and hope she lives to then give you a lot of mana next turn, or sneak her in for 3, sneak something else in and then sneak 2 other things in.

Writing this i could be wrong about alena. She’s mana positive when sneaked (because purph gives haste she taps for RRRR immediately). And a sequence where you sneak her in in the endstep of the player to your right, use her to sneak something else, then untap with her and all your mana can be pretty strong.

If you end up trying her let me know how she works out

Osbert you've just named cards that I've cut before haha. Helm of the Host is a good card, but very, very boring I found. I didn't take it out for power, I took it out because it was a boring win condition. When you don't have helm, Godo, Bandit Warlord turns out to be not that great outside of a dedicated equipment deck, which this deck has become less and less of. Same with Hammer of Nazahn , great in a dedicated equipment deck, pretty meh outside of one. The more non-equipment support Boros has gotten has made me move away from equipment (I have another Boros deck that focuses on equipment).

Brought Back is cute and could be good, but I don't have room in the deck for it. It's one I've got in the back of my mind.

I cannot disagree with you more about Fiendish Duo . Name another creature that costs less mana that doubles damage for my opponents. Any effect that costs less is not a creature. Being a creature is important in this deck, so Fiendish Duo wins over cards like Fiery Emancipation or Insult / Injury .

I also super disagree with you about Hour of Revelation . It's a hard board wipe that costs 3 mana 95% of the time. As with ANY board wipe, you don't play it if it hurts you, you hold onto it. The fact that it only costs 3 mana is huge though, it's one of white's best board wipes. Additionally, it's not uncommon to pull off a one-sided board wipe by pairing it with something like a Boros Charm .

As for Cavalier of Flame , I've been testing it (it says that in the deck description). So far it's been performing well. The thing that matters a lot about it is that it's 5 cmc. Boros has a LOT of good cards at 6 cmc, and seeing that my commander is also at that cmc I have to be really picky about that. So far, for the cmc that it's at, both cavaliers have been performing fine. Still in testing though, but I'm not cutting it for a non-creature OR a 6 cmc creature.

I just realized you can't add Fiendish Duo to the deck unless you put Obosh into the 99, but that's not worth it.

this is interesting, I've been looking for a way to make Falthis work. But just a few suggestions: Arcane Signet and Rakdos Signet are cheap and affordable now are are better mana rcks than Commander's Sphere and Heraldic Banner if you want a 3 mana mana rock, I suggest Chromatic Lantern any day of the week, then you can tap your mountains for black and your swamps for red, which is very handy. so for that, I would take out Worn Powerstone . I know it give 2 mana, but it's colourless, personally I don't ike that one. so those are the upgrades I would make for this, other than fetch lands of course. Fiendish Duo is pretty nice even if it's even cmc, it makes all damage your opponents take double., but not you. so if they hit each other, it doubles. Executioner's Capsule , while cheap, is bad removal because they see it coming. something like Murder is just straight up better, it costs the same and is instant. So that is all the changes I would make to the dack besides the mana base as I said. very interesting, I'm gonna try to build this and play it for sure. interesting spells to add also are burn spells with odd CMC like Lightning Bolt 6 damage to the face for 1 mana is nothing to sneeze at. especially if you can Fork it. +1 by the way for this nice commander pair.

Omniscience_is_life- Thanks for the input. I've decided to try a lot of the changes you mentioned. I have added Charging Tuskodon , Fiendish Duo , Halvar, God of Battle  Flip, Reyav, Master Smith , Mind Stone , and Teferi's Protection .

I decided to drop Godsend , Toolcraft Exemplar , Tajic, Blade of the Legion , Worn Powerstone , Commander's Sphere , Ajani, Strength of the Pride , and finally Talisman of Conviction .

I have added some cards to my maybeboard that I may try to add in at some point.

My deck's boardwipes already have Austere Command , Blasphemous Act , Divine Reckoning , Single Combat and my personal favorite Tragic Arrogance .

Thanks again for your wonderful suggestions!
