I really like the commander choice! Agrus is a great character in the Ravnica book cycle ;) Also, nice build! I'm actually in the middle of brewing a Flanking tribal deck with him as commander. Not sure if it's going to be any good but we'll see!

A few cards that may help:

Heartwarming Redemption - Nice draw for Boros.

Mirror Entity - Absolutely deadly with a small board state of tokens out. This teams up amazingly well with Goldnight Commander too.

Anointed Procession - For token generation.

Maybe Mass Hysteria + Uphill Battle is a janky control combo.

Now the cards I'm about to mention cost some $$ but they are certainly worth putting in if you are looking to create faster mana generation:

Caged Sun

Gauntlet of Power

Extraplanar Lens + Snow Covered Lands

Mana Flare - This one is the most affordable and I put it in all my red decks.

Smothering Tithe

Land Tax

Again, neat deck! +1

BMHKain on Best Mono-G CMDR for "Impurity" ...

@SP3CTR3_chelts: Interesting... "Aurelia's Parhelion △ Legion of the Damned". Not a bad idea; in spite of Her being created by Feather, retaliated against her, & became a Guildleader, & Razia is a Parun… I suppose I'll deal w/ that; though I dunno about the "of the Damned" part now...

Already knew about Leyline of Punishment , but I wonder how good Witch Hunt really is...

Definetely sucks, since I'm making CMDR Decks for both; including Kruphix. I'll leave the mass draw from here...

Yeah, Ajani Vengeant ; though he abandoned the Mana by the time he followed a now dead Elspeth Tirel to Theros; but if Elspeth was mentioned to be a part of Tamiyo 's Story Circle, is Elspeth REALLY ALIVE? If the Final Moments of FATE REFORGED told us nothing, I'd reference BlazBlue while I'm at it. So how did Elspeth Tirel Escape the Starfield of Nyx , & Planeswalk to Kamigawa to meet up w/ Tamiyo in the first place?

It's odd. Gideon Jura did side w/ the Boros Legion for awhile, & his background as Kytheon Iora  Flip came from an area of Theros (Gideon's Home Plane) centered on Red & Mana; & most of the cards' lore based upon this further demonstrates this point. Even Heartwarming Redemption of WAR further expands the story after Gideon's death as well. Which was Ironic as he did wield Blackblade Reforged ; which is Black mana incarnate of Weaponry.

I'll talk about a Boros OC Planeswalker another time. But she's definitely no War-Like individual; preferring to actually think than just react alone as an action.

You're right that's a lot of mana to cast Heartwarming Redemption every turn, but the Sunforger + Mistveil Plains package is mostly what that combo is about. Having Heartwarming Redemption as a Sunforger loop target might not be as powerful as reusing a decent removal spell ultimately, but it is a notable card to be able to tutor up with a Sunforger if you are determined to draw cards repeatedly. The cards in the combo are simply cheaper to cast and use in the early game than Chandra, Flamecaller or Tower of Fortunes type cards, even if they cost a similar amount of mana to activate and get value from.

Rzepkanut, Sunforger + Mistveil Plains is seven mana a turn. At that point, why not just run Chandra, Flamecaller ? There probably something more useful than Heartwarming Redemption to recur every turn.

I appreciate the thoroughness of your post and I loved the combos you included. They aren't all for every deck but it's a nice bunch of engines to know about when building decks. I have a few draw engines to add...

If you can afford it, you should run Exquisite Blood . It's strong, and goes infinite with Sanguine Bond . Heartwarming Redemption seems a decent card, gains you life and wheels for you. Ritual of Soot is probably better than Culling Sun . And lastly, to squeeze in some more red, consider Vandalblast and Crackling Doom .

On the fence for Heartwarming Redemption over Wheel of Fortune . The new war of the spark boros card seems better because it doesnt let my opponents get a new hand and it also gains me life which triggers Firesong and Sunspeaker
