Prismatic Strands one of the most powerful commons in the card pool.

Blacksmith's Skill and/or Loran's Escape more powerful utility/protection.

I'd like to shout out, in the same vein as the frog, Moment's Peace and Prismatic Strands. One Fog is annoying, but if you're trying to pick your target for your cat holding 5 swords, you're probably not going to go after the guy that not only screwed up an earlier combat, but has another one locked and loaded, face up on the table.

Also, Constant Mists is back-breaking for some opponents in my Erinis, Gloom Stalker deck.

We were both clearly inspired by the recent spoilers. Queen Kayla bin-Kroog 1 2 3 DEAD

The Brothers War is going to be a gift to EDH! WOTC 2022 push to legitimize Boros has been a lot of fun to design and explore around. This is Osgir 2.0

Your budget build is powerful! The only $ card I would suggest is Crucible of Worlds for obvious reasons.

I've been pondering Seize the Day for awhile now. It's a blue style untap effect from a synergistic flashback source. Even though it is a one shot something about an additional Queen Kayla bin-Kroog activation seems spicy.

Madblind Mountain a 1 mana shuffle effect is useful tech for the wheel strategy.

Frantic Purification I'm running this too since it's one of the only white madness cards but it is so lackluster.Prismatic Strands is from the same block/era and has been surprisingly useful.

Sanctum Prelate CMC theme stax tax

Aether Vial CMC theme creature cheating.

Feed the Swarm seems bad when you are running white. Rite of Oblivion on theme removal and cheap sac outlet.

Can't Stay Away narrow but on theme.

Prismatic Strands really good spell.

Increasing Ambition Demonic Tutor will always be king but this is on theme and twice the fun.

Corpse Dance an endless Shallow Grave.

Dawn of the Dead a consistent Shallow Grave.

High Market creature protection sac outlet.

Lightning Helix would probably be better over Incinerate or Guerrilla Tactics. Might move the Incinerates/Tactics to the sideboard in case you run into regeneration creatures or hand disruption. While it's a cool survival tactic, you might not see a Wall of Hope to run Prismatic Strands with and you've only got the 4 creatures. I think the reversal cards are fun, but at a certain point it's better to just kill the opponent than live longer so Life Burst is another option to swap out rather than the Incinerates. You're also running a bunch of low cost instants, but have no way of refilling your hand. White struggles with that outside of EDH (which is why its game plan is on stalling or tax) but red has tons of options to refill the hand in Legacy.

But if you're intent on running so much lifegain Felidar Sovereign or Test of Endurance might be an alternate wincon for you but if Storm and spellslinging is of greater interest to you, you might consider Angel's Grace and Near-Death Experience over all the lifegain. If just being an annoying opponent to face in Red/White is the goal, keep the protection cards and instead slap in some Gideon of the Trials in there.

Thanks for all the suggestions!!

I ended up cutting a ton of Flashback cards from the deck honestly, as well as a few escape ones. They do make a spirit, but they ended up being a little less impactful than I liked. However, Prismatic Strands / Rally the Peasants might make their way back in.

I think while I do have a few humans, 7 may be a few too low. If I was running more hatebears like Drannith Magistrate I would maybe reconsider human tribal cards.

I didn't realize Angelic Renewal goes infinite with Sun Titan but it appears you're right! Good call!

For another sac outlet I've been toying with Martyr's Cause , and I think I'll add it back in. It gives good protection to us from X spells or just damage based removal as well. It doesn't make the Angelic Titan combo win, but Altar of Dementia / Goblin Bombardment should be fine with that.

Pheonix subthemes sound pretty fun actually! Rekindling seems really good especially.

That's all really helpful! Thank you so much!

I'm not sure how exactly Quin plays yet, but I'm trying to come up with something with him too so I'll throw some cards I thought were interesting at you. Sentinel's Eyes seems decent, with Quin out it gives you two 3/2s for , which is pretty good. Battle Screech is just a generally strong tokens card so it fits with the token support, but also gives you a 3/2 (for free!). Same with Increasing Devotion , although thats definitely a lower power level just because of the mana cost. Prismatic Strands / Rally the Peasants are both also pretty strong cards that also will just throw in a 3/2 with Quin.

You have quite a few humans, so maybe throw in Bruna, the Fading Light  Flip, and if you want to meld, Gisela, the Broken Blade ? Bruna's solid on her own, but I might just be biased because I love meld. Angel of Glory's Rise too, depending on how many humans you end up with. You could also play things like Resurrection and Breath of Life , or even Gate to the Afterlife / God-Pharaoh's Gift . Angelic Renewal goes infinite with Sun Titan and a sac outlet, which you should probably have at least one more of. Ashnod's Altar is the go too, but I think its pretty expensive nowadays, so maybe Blasting Station , Dark-Dweller Oracle , or Grafted Exoskeleton

A bunch of the phoenixes seem decent, since they always return. I think the best ones would be Flamewake Phoenix , Rekindling Phoenix , and Skyfire Phoenix . Flamewake seems great since with Quin your spirits activate ferocious, the others I'd be more skeptical about.

Well I hope that's at least somewhat helpful lol

FrankieG - yeah good point about Foil and Fireblast . Im coming from the point of view of PDH where foil gets a lot more play than Fireblast does. Ill add a section for free flashback costs and things like Battle Screech and Prismatic Strands
