Do not cut Bow of Nylea it fills many slots of other cards as well, ie regrowth effects (granted they’re put into the deck youre still recycling cards) ie redundancy of deathtouch if frostfanf is removed, pumps creatures for Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Bow is underrated, do not remove it.
Mox Amber only works if you control a legendary creature, and by the time you play Fynn the point is mute because you’re not using the Amber to cast fynn at that time which would be the reason you’re running it in the first place.
To ski is a great suggestion!!! Indestructible draw engine that requires a -/- effect or to be exiled, very worthwhile to run

I've brewed up a mean pauper list - which you've seen but definitely intend on brewing up a normal optimized list eventually. Here are some of my notes.
1) Get Fynn out either asap or wait until you've developed your board and use him as a pay off. Getting him out on turn 1 can be done in a few ways... Lotus Petal and Elvish Spirit Guide are the go to budget options. Mana Crypt and Mox Diamond - are always a solid include but I believe you noted that was out of price range. So, I'm not exactly sure if Chrome Mox , Mox Opal and Jeweled Lotus are out of the question too.
2) Ohran Frostfang is a beast do not remove this card. Even if granting deathtouch is redundant, this is an excellent curve topper and draw engine. Also, you may not get full value out of Bow of Nylea ; if you ran some Birthing Pod , Eldritch Evolution or a go wide token lines its probably more worth it.

itsbuzzi, I think I was looking at Ensoul Artifacts Pioneer, Ensoul Artifacts - Pioneer and one or two others I can't remember off the top of my head. I'm sure I got the idea to run both the sets of confluences and mutavaults from one of those decks.
Running Sram seems like a good idea if you run some equipment cheerios, good draw power in tandem with Gitter and The Scissors . I'm thinking about running a variant of the deck like that. On top of that, Srams with the Emrys , you can throw in half a set of Mox Amber .

@DuTogira: You're not really thinking about where Chrome Mox fits into the format vs. Simian Spirit Guide . Simian Spirit Guide is like an uncounterable Lotus Petal that isn't shut off by Stony Silence with the only downside being you can't recur it. Chrome Mox requires you to pitch a card and it's an artifact that has to be activated.
Where does that even fit in Modern? Cascade decks don't play it because Violent Outburst into Chrome Mox is all kinds of feel bad. Storm doesn't really want it because of the card disadvantage. You could do something stupid like Island -> Chrome Mox -> Exile red card -> Goblin Electromancer , but that leaves you with only 3 cards to try and win with (4 on your draw step). They basically have to be Gifts Ungiven , ritual, ritual, Manamorphose . If your opponent Lightning Bolt s the 2/2 or blows up the Chrome Mox , you won't be able to do anything other than cast Gifts Ungiven and pass. Griselshoal is in a similar spot, where it's already struggling to get the combo running. And Urza decks aren't even playing a full set of Mox Amber , so it's not like another mox that struggles to work because 70% of the deck is colorless is adding anything.
So where does that leave Chrome Mox ? Probably in a similar position from when it was in Extended. It gets used like another copy of Aether Vial for aggro decks or another mana rock for midrange. The most likely places you'd see Chrome Mox are in decks like D&T, Infect, Fish, Ponza, and the odd combo deck like Oops! All Spells or Griselshoal.
I'm just speculating and obviously I can be wrong. I think, though, that a more serious question needs to be had regarding Modern's banlist. If we can unban Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Bitterblossom , maybe we need to reevaluate what cards are problematic and what cards are on there because they were too good in Standard, Extended, or previous versions of Modern. We also need to consider which cards are causing other cards to get banned, Urza, Lord High Artificer or Ancient Stirrings being good examples.

hotkarl63 the deck revolves around Aetherflux Reservoir . By chaining multiple artifacts in a single turn you build up your "storm" count and effectively just shoot down each of your opponents. Things like Sensei's Divining Top and something to reduce its cost, Helm of Awakening / Etherium Sculptor / Birgi, God of Storytelling Flip, let us cast top for free drawing a card. Then activate top to draw yet another card and as long as there is another artifact in hand we can redraw top and recast it. This loop quickly builds up that "storm" count.
You can also put your opponents in a very oppressed state with Words of Wind by bouncing all their permanents each turn. By having Words out with Jhoira and two artifacts that have a net even mana cost we can continuously bounce our artifacts until the board is clear.
A quick example is Mox Amber and Mana Crypt . Though this is a net possitive in mana it will illustrate the combo. Cast an artifact from hand or one of the aforementioned cards as long as the other is on board. Lets say Amber is in play and were casting Crypt. Tap Amber for 1 mana and use Words of Winds replacement effect off of our draw from Jhoira. Each player boucnces a permanent and we will choose Amber. We then cast Amber and in response tap Crypt for 2 mana then use the replacement effect again bouncing Crypt back to hand. Rinse and repeat until our opponents have nothing on board yet we still have our entire field.
With Aetherflux in play this also lets us gain infinite life and ping any opponent down. Without it in play we still create an oppressive position that is very hard to get out from under.

I think you've made one mistake where you say Glint Hawk + 1 fast mana (presuming any mana-positive rock like Sol Ring , Mana Crypt or Mox Amber ) will produce infinite mana. Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle 's ability triggers on cast, meaning that the Mox Amber will still be on the stack when Glint Hawk's ETB is put on the stack. You're then either forced to sacrifice another artifact to Glint Hawk 's trigger or sacrifice the Glint Hawk itself. This loop does work if you have two fast mana available, since this let's you alternate between the two. Example:
Cast Mox Amber
Teshar's trigger get's put on the stack, targeting Glint Hawk in graveyard
Teshar's trigger resolves
Mox Amber resolves
TL;DR: Bouncers like Glint Hawk need two artifacts to loop infinitely.

Hiya! Long time Boros player here. Got a few observations about this kind of deck. 1) This Boros pairing of Akroma and Rograhk favors lots of aggresively costed (low cmc) creatures with keywords. If you want to focus on equipment, I would recommend going Rograhk + Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist . If you want to focus on big boros (lots of high cmc creatures) I would recommdn Akroma + Alena, Kessig Trapper . If you want to stick with Akroma + Rograhk, then I recommend cutting most (if not all) of the equipment and HEAVILY trimming on the mana curve, cutting a lot of the high drop creatures and playing more low drop creatures. 2) You have a 0 cmc commander. I recommend you take full advantage of it. Mox Amber is Mox Ruby in this deck. Jeska's Will is a huge ritual plus a draw 3. Deflecting Swat and Flawless Maneuver are free protection spells. 3) Your current land count is going to lead to a lot of missed land drops. I recommend upping it so that you can consistently draw lands and make all of your land drops. 4) You have next to no interaction in your deck. White is a great color for both single-target removal and board wipes. I would look into playing a higher number of those, otherwise a big threat from an opponent (which you have 3 of) is going to ruin your day. 5) If you want to stick with Akroma + Rograhk, then like I mentioned, you want to lower your curve by a LOT and fill it with more low cmc keyword soup creatures. Once you've done that, impulsive draw becomes really good in the deck, and red (and Boros) has gotten tons of great impulsive draw options in recent years. On top of that, Akroma synergizes really well with extra combats (since she triggers every combat), so running one or two of those would be good finishers.

Dockside Extortionist while not a dwarf or a dragon, is a prime source of treasure. Hellkite Tyrant is a possible win condition. You could stuff a couple of rocks like Arcane Signet , Mind Stone , or Thought Vessel which can provide reliable ramp (or less budget Mana Crypt , Mox Amber , or especially Mox Opal ). There's Dwarven Warriors , Dwarven Nomad , or Dwarven Blastminer who make decent dwarves that can tap themselves. Taurean Mauler is both a dragon, a dwarf, and a decent card. I'd be remiss if i didn't mention Faithless Looting , as it is an amazing card. You could also try Blood Moon wich has become mooch more affordable. Also could mention Inventors' Fair and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx which are two of my very favorite lands. Now there are a lot more cards of your budget can afford but most of these suggestions are fairly budget, not saying that your list is a budget one.
Don't take my considerations as criticisms, your list is very cool, i didn't think I'd like this deck until i saw this deck! Love the deck and i hope you continue to improve it.
