It looks pretty good for multiplayer to me! My only comments: I'm a little surprised to see a few boardwipes; you're definitely going to be the aggressive creature deck and boardwipes are usually your enemy! I understand the desire to have a reset button in the deck, but I think maybe focusing on more spot removal for problematic creatures would be helpful. You could swap Wrath of God , Day of Judgment and Martial Coup for Swords to Plowshares , Path to Exile , and Banishing Light for example.
My other suggestion would be to take out some of the really high-cost cards like Zendikar Resurgent , Kindred Summons , and Doubling Season . There's not a huge counters or tokens emphasis with cat tribal and the value of Zendikar Resurgent is nice, but at that point in the game you probably just want ways to get around big things on the board or get in for that last bit of damage.
I'd recommend adding a few protection pieces instead. These get a bit expensive so whatever you can afford or proxy: Heroic Intervention , Wrap in Vigor , Teferi's Protection . Alternatively I'd replace the above with some good aggressive equipment like Stoneforge Masterwork , Hammer of Nazahn , and Maul of the Skyclaves .
Hope that helps!!

Also to take advantage of your commander's HUGE attack, Ghalta, Primal Hunger feels like it should have a place! Mini boss!
If you're looking for a fun card, HIGHLY recommend trying out Chain of Acid , see where your friends alliances REALLY lie!

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.

Brought Back seems like good tech at protecting key artifacts, grabbing fetches to ramp, or just avoid paying commander tax on Aurelia. It can be found with Sunforger as well.
The Godo, Bandit Warlord + Hammer of Nazahn + Helm of the Host combo package would fit in here very well as Aurelia also goes infinite with the Helm and the cards work great individually... well maybe Helm is pricey to use BUT it is still a must answer threat.
If you're looking for cuts I would start with Cavalier of Flame, Hour of Revelation, and Fiendish Duo. Cavalier and Duo are over costed for their effects and Hour of Revelation hits most of your ramp so you shoot yourself in the foot for casting it.

If you would like to make your deck better, may I consider these cuts and adds;

Here are some cards I would cut and cards I would put in:
I would also cut Sunforger for an Equipment such as Hammer of Nazahn or some other Equipment because with Sunforger , you want a package of Red and White Instants to have it go search for. Currently you only have Dispatch in the deck. If you plan on keeping Sunforger , I'd recommend adding more Red and/or White Instants.
