Hey, looks good nice Extraplanar Lens :)

Consider more lands? 29 lands is low for a 3.6 avg. CMC. This low amount of lands also needs a low avg. CMC, not more than 2.0 which will be difficult to achieve unless you cut a large amount of high CMC cards. Consider 36 lands?

Consider more flying? Flying is evasion that you want to be able to consistently with Odric give all your creatures including Odric to do Commander damage.

Odric can give your creatures indestructible which is powerful from sources such as Gideon Blackblade or Bastion Protector . Precinct Captain , Hero of Bladehold and Brimaz, King of Oreskos are creatures who can be repeatable sources of tokens. Legion's Landing  Flip and Adanto, the First Fort is a good land with token strategies. Hour of Revelation is a powerful board wipe for mono white in multiplayer Commander.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Angelic Chorus
  • Sphere of Safety
  • Mass Calcify
  • Angel of Glory's Rise
  • Darien, King of Kjeldor
  • Skyspear Cavalry
  • Baird, Steward of Argive
  • Dictate of Heliod
  • Norn's Annex
  • Ajani's Welcome
  • High Ground
  • Solemn Offering
  • Deploy to the Front
  • Sword of the Animist
  • Chitinous Cloak
  • Spear of Heliod
  • Riot Control
  • War Report
  • Hopeful Eidolon

Joe_Ken_ to really exploit it's effect I would pair it with Skyhunter Skirmisher or Aven Sunstriker . That's evasion and double tap while still being cost-effective. I might add Mirran Crusader depending on the meta.

NV_1980 Thanks, Skyhunter Skirmisher looks great and Prowling Serpopard is only in the maybe board because I forgot to order it when I ordered cards last and will definitely be added once I get it. Would love to hear about any other cat themed cards that might be worth adding.

Skyhunter Skirmisher would be nice. We would also definitely recommend main-boarding Prowling Serpopard as this will really annoy anyone using blue against you.

Hey, you've made an overall good budget Boros deck using cards you have, but it's confused as to what strategy it is.

You have the start of a Boros aggro strategy with lots of good two and three drop creatures, but then there's 14 creatures with 6 or higher CMC (converted mana cost) who are out of place with the rest of the deck. You already have your six drop who's Aurelia and she benefits as well as the rest of your army does from low CMC creatures to attack with. Did you buy the Guilds the Ravnica Boros Guild Kit? If you did there's some creatures in the kit to consider adding. Consider more Battalion?

Other budget cards (less than $1 each) to consider adding for aggro:

Double strike is a pretty powerful ability when your attacking creatures are getting a pump as well as when you're getting an extra combat step with Aurelia. Lots of two drops and three drops are good with dual lands that ETB (enter the battlefield) untapped. Consider adding these lands?

Good luck with your deck.

Cats > Knights in terms of voltron tribes. Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith > the Bright Twins in terms of voltron commanders. But still, I can suggest.

Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer is pretty nice, though not on-tribe.

Adriana, Captain of the Guard is pretty sweet.

Bloodsworn Steward is also that, and along the same vein is Crimson Honor Guard .

Hero of Bladehold is a sweet token generator, and battle cry is relevant.

Relief Captain is a highly underrated card imo. 6 power for four mana, across four bodies? Yes please.

Silverblade Paladin is a lot of value.

Skyhunter Skirmisher and Skyknight Legionnaire are some spicy air bodies.

Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor is among my favorite cards.

Hey hkhssweiss, I really like the ideas and concept for your deck. I would recommend you to use Chameleon Colossus and Skyhunter Skirmisher instead of Vanguard of Brimaz and Ajani's Chosen since Arahbo, Roar of the World doesn't really reward the going white route. One thing I feel Arahbo, Roar of the World decks lack is having a "surprise component". Playing a single cat and pumping it for one big attack is quite predictable for the opponents. Even though you go try to go full enchantment I'd further recommend you to use Grafted Exoskeleton (maybe instead of Faith's Reward )since it is easier to get to the 10 lethal damage this way instead of pumping one creature for a 40 power swing. I wish I had the money/cards to test this deck since I'm still not sure whether Arahbo, Roar of the World does suit enchantments over artifacts. Anyway thanks a lot for putting this list together! It's very interesting to get a different view on the cat commander! :)
