Since you are playing Boros I’d include Smothering Tithe into the deck to help you mana ramp.

If you are looking for more token generation then Anointed Procession will let you double the amount you are making, also helping Smothering Tithe make double treasure tokens.

I'm still pushing my pet deck for the time being:

Raff's Renewal

Commander / EDH bushido_man96


I'm adding Smothering Tithe to the deck, and now have a Krark-Clan Ironworks coming in the mail to add in, too. Looking for any suggestions. I'm also trying to push the upvotes, so those are appreciated!

Major overhauled and streamlined the deck:

1.) Removed both Mark of Asylum and Personal Sanctuary

2.) Removed Past in Flames/ Impact Resonance and other clunky burn spells

3.) Removed both Stoneforge Mystic and Stonehewer Giant and replaced by Steelshaper's Gift as the only equipment tutor.

4.) Added Smothering Tithe as RNA was released

5.) Added Lapse of Certainty in the Sunforger package after JLK's (of the Commandzone) take on the commander

6.) Added Goldnight Castigator . Doubling potential damage taken is a risk but with Purity on the battlefield this can gain an insane amount of life to fuel Aetherflux Reservoir . As an insurance also added Pariah's Shield to redirect that damage to either Stuffy Doll or Boros Reckoner . Much testing is required.

7.) Streamlined the mana base as well; minimizing land that etb tapped.

Landerasan on Feather, the infinite value

Sphinx-Bone Wand sounds like really great addition, but isn’t it too slow? I think it will only work when Smothering Tithe is in play. It’s much better to use Aetherflux Reservoir which also heals you for lesser manacost. I might find place for Spellbook and Library of Leng if there are any in my local area!
