Hey, you've made an overall good budget Boros deck using cards you have, but it's confused as to what strategy it is.
You have the start of a Boros aggro strategy with lots of good two and three drop creatures, but then there's 14 creatures with 6 or higher CMC (converted mana cost) who are out of place with the rest of the deck. You already have your six drop who's Aurelia and she benefits as well as the rest of your army does from low CMC creatures to attack with. Did you buy the Guilds the Ravnica Boros Guild Kit? If you did there's some creatures in the kit to consider adding. Consider more Battalion?
- Legion Loyalist in Guild Kit.
- Boros Elite : in Guild Kit.
- Daring Skyjek : in Guild Kit.
- Boros Swiftblade : in Guild Kit.
Other budget cards (less than $1 each) to consider adding for aggro:
- Frontline Medic
- Firefist Striker
- Honored Crop-Captain
- Goblin Wardriver
- Accorder Paladin
- Hero of Oxid Ridge
- Silverblade Paladin : soulbound with Aurelia.
- Iroas's Champion
- Skyhunter Skirmisher
- Hearthfire Hobgoblin
Double strike is a pretty powerful ability when your attacking creatures are getting a pump as well as when you're getting an extra combat step with Aurelia. Lots of two drops and three drops are good with dual lands that ETB (enter the battlefield) untapped. Consider adding these lands?
Good luck with your deck.

This deck seems sweet! Looking through the list, I'm much more convinced that the aggro side works!
I don't like: Hero of Oxid Ridge (this card just seems bad) Tormod's Crypt , (there are better graveyard removal options) Journey to Nowhere and Oblivion Ring (these always get removed in my experience) Borrowed Hostility (I think I want my pump spells to either draw a card or be stronger than this)
I'd test: Mirrorwing Dragon Pyromancer's Goggles Primal Amulet Flip (this saves you a lot of mana on the 2+ cmc spells) Zada, Hedron Grinder (synergizes really well) Shelter (draw seems incredibly important for feather) Weathered Wayfarer (staple for boros imo) Crimson Wisps (better than accelerate) Chandra's Ignition Fight with Fire Boros Charm is probably just better than Assault Strobe and should probably come in.

Team buffs: Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran , Hero of Bladehold , Angel of Jubilation , Spear of Heliod , Balefire Liege , Hero of Oxid Ridge , Nobilis of War , Ogre Battledriver , Glory of Warfare , Marshal's Anthem .
Flying: Angel of Jubilation , Aurelia, the Warleader , Angelic Field Marshal , Tyrant's Familiar , Angelic Skirmisher , Firemane Avenger , Odric, Lunarch Marshal , Nobilis of War , Tyrant's Familiar , Victory's Herald .
Trample: Archetype of Aggression .
Haste & Double Strike: Aurelia, the Warleader , Captain Lannery Storm , Odric, Lunarch Marshal , Hero of Oxid Ridge , Ogre Battledriver , Assemble the Legion , Berserkers' Onslaught , Boros Charm True Conviction .
Taking advantage of the 2nd ability: Sword of the Animist , Lightmine Field , Powerstone Minefield , and Pyrohemia , and other instant speed damage based board wipe effects. Once your creatures are attacking they cant be damaged. This effect last until combat is totally over. So even after combat damage (but still combat phase) you can cast a spell to do damage.
I missed this stuff too: Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran , Hero of Oxid Ridge , and Hero of Bladehold they all buff my creatures when they attack so giving them extra attack phases to attack again, buffs them again. So its "battle cry x2" from the Hero's, and its +4/+0 form Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran on the second attack. Angelic Skirmisher also triggers twice. Not only for my extra combat phases, but my opponents as well. you're all going "duhhh" right, but i knew this too. Didn't realize i have been missing these triggers all the time.
As you can see it works when I remove the changes you said you had to do scotchtapedsleeve

Continue the challenge - choose a bad rare or mythic and remake it somehow into a useful card. Here is a small list of one card per color, but choose your own if you wish:

Nice budget deck but a few cards seem weak in an aggro deck even on budget standards. Perhaps they are not but just in case I figured I could suggest some other budget alternatives. Hope these help.
Banefire seems weak/situational for an aggro deck
Ghor-Clan Rampager to top the curve/ give uncounterable +4/+4 to a creature for two mana
Hellrider to deal a great deal of damage
Hero of Oxid Ridge for the top of the curve
Lightning Mauler doesn't fit well because it is a nonbo with both Fanatic of Xenagos and Flinthoof Boar. Lightning Mauler is something that needs a follow up and the two cards which would be most impactful with haste already have haste. This results in soulbinding with a one drop (one of which is Experiment One which is better when it evolves over multiple turns and not just charging in as a 1/1 or 2/2). It could be good but seems awkward in the list.
Magma Jet seems too mana intensive for such little damage. Scry 2 doesn't seem to make up for it's lack of impact.

I think the best thing to do with the extra mana from Lannery would be extra attack steps. Savage Beating is especially good because double strike also helps Lannery survive. Hellkite Charger is also good because it is potentially repeatable.
You might want to take out the looters and add in other creatures that are good at attacking. Markov Blademaster benefits from being unblockable. Taurean Mauler and War Elemental get quite big in multiplayer games. Hero of Oxid Ridge could stop small creatures from blocking. Inferno Titan can burn creatures or players. Or add more pirates for flavor.

It comes to my mind more suff that trigger when you attack Captain's Claws, Goblin Rabblemaster, Hero of Bladehold, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Launch the Fleet, Soltari Champion, Accorder Paladin, Goblin Wardriver, Hero of Oxid Ridge, Wingmate Roc, Frontline Medic, Firemane Avenger.
Or when they deal combat damage Prophetic Flamespeaker Skeleton Key, Mask of Memory, Rogue's Gloves, Specter's Shroud, Destructive Urge, Markov Blademaster, Slith Ascendant, Blinding Angel, Falkenrath Marauders and any of the "sword of A and B".
I'm always looking for a Boros deck to run the Sunforger too bad you have so few instants.
Card draw is hard in Boros, so I'd also try to use Staff of Nin, The Immortal Sun together with the Ghirapur Orrery you already included.
I hope you find something useful among these cards.
