king-saproling ooooo I forgot about Chandra's Incinerator, that could be some very useful and repeatable removal. Will mostly come down for at most two mana. This one is definitely going in the maybe board.

Satyr Firedancer is a definite no. Not enough instants and sorceries that deal damage in the deck, although there are some, just not enough to justify a spot for this.

So this is an entire collection of the same type of card. Basically I like these effects, but I don't want too many. The max I would be willing to run is two. It helps flesh out the deck, but it's not the main strategy. I like Light of Promise best out of your suggestions. Could potentially replace Nykthos Paragon if I find I only need to be buffing one creature instead of four or five. Maybeboard it goes for testing. Sunbond is just worse Light of Promise and I don't want too many of these effects. I would rather just have Nykthos Paragon than Cradle of Vitality, it's more efficient. If I were to go with two, which two would you suggest, and what would you suggest be taken in its place?

Adarkar Valkyrie is just too expensive for what it does; I used to run it. Maybe over the next few years, if Boros gets access to a plethora of ramp instead of what we have, it might find a way, but now it's just too slow. Angelic Renewal though is something I've been meaning to add to the maybeboard. Two-mana, choose whenever you'd like to reanimate a creature, is pretty good. Graceful Reprieve is not as flexible as Angelic Renewal, and what I already have in the deck is just better. I actually don't think I need more reanimation. Surprisingly, that's not the issue. While I love the political power of Cauldron of Souls, I used to run it, and I find it incredibly slow and clunky. Could be good in more political groups and slower groups than mine though.

Homura, Human Ascendant  Flip is expensive, clunky, and it costs mana to use on its flip side as well. I have more efficient ways of pushing through damage than him. Not a fan.

Minion Reflector would be a good choice if my reanimation package wasn't so good, but Boros has gotten some buffs in the past year or so, which makes this a sub-optimal choice.

Twinflame.... huh. I always thought this was a threaten effect for some reason. I don't think it could earn a spot, but I see enough there to where I'm more than happy to test it and be proven wrong. Maybeboard it goes. Not as impressed by Heat Shimmer though.

Sorry if it seems like I'm just shooting all your ideas down. Youve made some good ones and given me a lot to think about. This list is just REALLY tight.

Love it! I recommend adding the Nykthos Paragon, it gets insane with Lyra! i am sad to tell you though that Archangel Avacyn  Flip counts as a red card for colour identity.

Very cool deck idea. Does anything from from MH2 or Forgotten Realms make the cut? Nykthos Paragon , Trelasarra, Moon Dancer and Cleric Class seem strong. Attended Healer from ZNR could be great here too.

Have you thought about using the drain effects like Dina, Soul Steeper or Marauding Blight-Priest or do you prefer the Pridemate effects for aggro and Tayam Synergy?

The new Nykthos Paragon from MH2 seems like it would be a really good fit here. The Ozolith from IKO lets you hang onto counters once creatures die and pairs really well with Star Pupil from STX as well.

I cast Bloodhunter Bat , and it enters the battlefield, I gain 2 life. Can I choose not to use Nykthos Paragon ability and then later in the turn, I gain 5 life from a couple of attacking life link creatures. Can I use nykthos ability then?
