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.

There are so many good lifegain cards I could mention, but your deck looks fine. I haven't seen many Licia lists, but I like the way you're taking with it.

Just to list some potentially interesting cards to consider: Vilis, Broker of Blood is insane. Tivash, Gloom Summoner is powerful, as well. You could add in Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant, and Ajani's Pridemate becomes huge in no time. Btw, Sunbond and Light of Promise can turn everything into Pridemate. Pontiff of Blight for more extort seems good here. Beacon of Immortality is a big life splash, and Serra Avatar can become really big.

Removed 4x Sunbond, replaced with Light of Promise, as it's strictly better.

Also removed 3x Wall of Reverence and 4x Recumbent Bliss for now in favor of more combo.

Added 4x Sworn Companions and 3x Celestial Unicorn.

I see the strength of this deck in its straightforward strategy; while everyone else is setting up degenerate combos and not actually defending themselves, you can beat the heck out of them before they finish telling you how "mono white is unplayable".

You might consider some creatures that provide buffs for your team. Benalish Marshal , Archetype of Courage , and Celestial Crusader would be good fits that aren't too pricey.

How about creatures that bring along some friends: Precinct Captain and Geist-Honored Monk help you go wide.

You're gaining life, so maybe look at Speaker of the Heavens ? Lastly, Sunbond on Linden could be a great way to KO opponents via commander damage.

Thanks for the wonderful advice, EVENcast! I think you are absolutely right, I should lean more into one win condition. It is an odd place to be with Elenda as commander--it almost feels like she wants to go wide and voltron at once. I cut Sunbond , Black Market , and Martyr's Bond (felt like it was too slow, other cards do it's job better). Picking up Arcane Signet and Westvale Abbey  Flip, and throwing the Vampire Nighthawk in. See what I can do to focus more on going wide/aristocrats/vampires I suppose. Cheers!
