Ilharg, the Raze-Boar
Legendary Creature — Boar God
Whenever Ilharg, the Raze-Boar attacks, you may put a creature card from your hand onto the battlefield tapped and attacking. Return that creature to your hand at the beginning of the next end step.
When Ilharg, the Raze-Boar is put into the graveyard or exile from the battlefield, you may put it into its owner's library third from the top.

Ilharg, the Raze-Boar Discussion

Pikobyte I appreciate that suggestion, but I enjoy the red splash. Some of my favorite cards in this deck are in red, like Ilharg, the Raze-Boar , Scourge of the Throne , and Sarkhan's Unsealing . Also I already have two simic decks as well so keeping this one temur is more unique for me.

Thanks for the support! I'll try and take a look at your own list when I have the time if you want some suggestions there as well.
First, Shenanigans ! I had it in the list for a while as a stand in for Golgari Thug (who's pricey for an uncommon) and it performed...better as discard fodder than as artifact removal. Ingot Chewer does a lot for this deck and is much more abusable and cheaper to cast (9 times out of 10 you evoke it).
I essentially only have room for 3 expendable single-target removal slots after all the synergistic options like Shriekmaw . Between Baleful Mastery , Bedevil , Chaos Warp , Rakdos Charm , Vandalblast , By Force , and Shenanigans itself (for examples), I prize the exile effect and mana efficiency on Baleful Mastery first and foremost (if you're wheeling frequently with Magus of the Wheel or even Ruin Grinder a single draw is irrelevant), with Chaos Warp acting as another non-destruction removal piece that isn't restricted on what it can hit. All of that covers creature removal quite thoroughly, so I looked to dedicated artifact removal next.
I chose Vandalblast over any other targeted artifact removal due to the popularity of Osgir, the Reconstructor and Voltron-style Sword of X & Y equipment decks. A non-targeting wipe is significantly stronger against artifact decks like them vs. an incremental single-target destruction effect like Shenanigans. If you don't have a go-wide artifact deck like Osgir in your play environment, feel free to use Shenanigans over Vandalblast and reap some extra discard synergy in the meantime.
For Ilharg, the Raze-Boar I wanted a threat to work as an independent backup plan from the graveyard. The best response a graveyard deck can have against grave hate is to practice moderation, and Ilharg attacks on a similar angle to Sneak Attack without adding to the graveyard unnecessarily. The vast majority of ETB effects in the deck are valuable and worth repeating over and over again, while Ilharg itself is a hard-to-remove threat in its own right. If you are having trouble with needing creatures in hand to abuse, I would highly recommend Phyrexian Reclamation ...so much so that I wouldn't even suggest running Sneak or Ilharg without it!
And trust me when I say that sneaking in a Master of Cruelties off of Ilharg is a devious play that is guaranteed to turn heads and take names!

Alrighty, so if you want more extra combats then two of the cards I suggest are Waves of Aggression and Aggravated Assault . The first has retrace, so you can use it multiple times. The second is an enchantment that can be used repeatedly (as a side note, it also combos well with the Sword of Feast and Famine you already run as well as Neheb, the Eternal ). Aside from that, you've got the most important extra combat stuff like Moraug, Fury of Akoum and World at War . And Aurelia, of course.
If you want to lean more into the "big boros" strategy, then you need to be able to answer this question: how am I going to ramp/cheat out these big creatures? Red has acces to some really good ritual effects ( Jeska's Will , Mana Geyser ). Red has also been getting a ton of ways to make treasure tokens. You could always run good ol' mana rocks. As far as cheating out, red has access to sneak attack effects ( Ilharg, the Raze-Boar , Sneak Attack , Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded ). White has access to a handful of reanimation spells (and red has Feldon of the Third Path ).
As far as what to cut, I would cut a lot of the equipment. Equipment has a lot of good support, so much that it would prefer its own deck. I would focus on wheel effects for your card draw since impulsive draw is bad if you have a ton of big cmc cards in the deck.

RNR_Gaming I wish I could but earlier today I asked mu judge for the same idea and he decided that sending someone further in negative life wouldn’t count as a lost life.
I’m not sure to understand why Syr Carah, the Bold would be such a good commander.
I would understand something like Krenko, Mob Boss for spamming token for multiple effects or Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded or Ilharg, the Raze-Boar to cheat big creatures on the board but Carah seems so fragile.

Nice deck (+1), love the Boros theme here. Have you considered some creatures with built in battalion enabling; i.e. Hanweir Garrison, Hero of Bladehold, Leonin Warleader, Skyknight Vanguard, or Basri Ket (not a creature, but the same idea). Also Ilharg, the Raze-Boar seems like he would fit nicely here. Hope this helps.
