As well we can find a bit more actiion with Mazemind Tome so the card draw from blue (which was the original thought) feels not as good compared. We are now also more specific Mana hungry because of our horrors 2 black and 2 white in Dust Elemental .
The deck got a bit more expensive with this. I leave the blue cards in the Maybeboard so anybody can make the more budget choice for himself - dont get me wrong the deck can win a few games in Azorius and it is fun to play but the Hunted Horror brings a lot more power to the table.

I would add Angel of Destiny to the maindeck because some of these cards just pump out lifegain. Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose is another great way to win off of lifegain. I also might take out some of the cards that don't have too much synergy, like The Birth of Meletis , Inscription of Ruin , and Foulmire Knight . I would say Mazemind Tome , but it is very good in any deck, and the lifegain makes it better.

Thank you for your comments fatalzintomyum !
You made two really good suggestions ! In fact, if you look at the cards selection i made in the description, you will see that both of them (Bitterblossom & Kolaghan's Command) were main deck. This actual version is a test of Mazemind Tome.
The lack of cards draw and the high number of Prowess decks i faced make me wanna try it. As i also put in a one-of Chandra, Acolyte of Flame and have so many three drop, i decided to swap Kolaghan's Command and Rakdos Charm from side to main. This allows graveyard & artifact hate game one, and decrease the mana-curve. I also put Demigod of Revenge in the sideboard for matchups where i need a faster clock and/or if my Ensnaring Bridge are dead.
I can easily go back to my first version if i'm not convinced after some play-testing ;)
Concerning Smoldering Marsh, i never had to regret it. I actually run seven basics so fetching it untapped is not very difficult.

Man könnte sich überlegen noch die letzten beiden Giver of Runes mit Lightning Greaves zu ersetzen... bleibt wahrscheinlich länger auf dem Feld als Giver of Runes und kann Lyra Dawnbringer haste geben - direkt 5 Leben und evtl. ein Engel. Und du hast sehr viele 1 cost spells.

jakeyuki12 - Thanks so much, great advice! I ended up cutting Oketra, Haktos, and Kor Cartographer for lands and replaced one of the flawless maneuvers with deflecting swat (don’t know how I ended up with two there in the first place!)

kriggi Thanks for the suggestions! I've found that I don't run into mana constraints all that much when going off as all our spells are free with Bolas's Citadel, so I think Paradox Engine might be a bit "win more".
I totally forgot about the lifegain clause on Mazemind Tome though, which can be super relevant against aggressive decks. The only concern I have is what to cut. It fills a similar slot as Wishclaw Talisman, so maybe move one of those to the board to be tutorable via Karn, the Great Creator and cut 2 Guardian Idols.

Next step is card-draw and card-advantage. Unfortunately, the Boros colors are the worst at drawing cards. Graveyard recursion is a type of card advantage, so Colfenor's Urn can count. I've never seen that card before! Nice find and good instincts!
Here are some options for you.
First up, the cards I own that I'm willing to part with:
Seer's Sundial - Staff of Nin - Farsight Mask - Key to the City - Infiltration Lens - Mask of Memory - Tome of Legends - Outpost Siege - Khorvath's Fury - Humble Defector - Chandra, Flamecaller - Magus of the Wheel
Cards I don't have that you should consider:
Bonders' Enclave would be worth picking up, I think.
Browbeat - Loreseeker's Stone - Arcane Encyclopedia - Vance's Blasting Cannons Flip - Ignite the Future - Reforge the Soul - Wheel of Fate - Mind's Eye (used to be the gold-standard! Very mana-inefficient though) - Icon of Ancestry (interesting choice since it has the anthem) - Rogue's Gloves - Well of Lost Dreams (great choice with your commander!) - Coveted Jewel (ramp and draw! Unreliable and mana-expensive, but chaotic and fun!) - Mangara, the Diplomat - Runehorn Hellkite - Dragon Mage - Knollspine Dragon - Herald's Horn - Endless Atlas (a bit suspect in two-color decks unless your colors are very skewed or you have lots of Renegade Map-type cards) - Bag of Holding - Arch of Orazca - Geier Reach Sanitarium - Mazemind Tome
