Hi LordBlackblade - Please see below for my responses:

Lands:

If I cull those 7 lands, do I just replace them with basics? Or are there other suggestions I can sub them with? I am just worried because this will leave me with only 26 lands which is way too low.

Enchantments

Curse of Fool's Wisdom - I agree - I only had this in there to proc with Geier Reach Sanitarium which has also been removed so this is an easy cull.

Armillary Sphere - I'll leave this one in I think, I gotta ratio some cards I actually own, haha

Bontu's Monument - I actually agree with you here, this one has been one of my potential cuts for a while, it looks like I only have 18 creatures there in current state, this is a smart cut, let's do it.

Fountain of Renewal - I see what you're saying. I'll leave it for now and see what else we can cull, but having a diverse array of ways to gain life is my goal here.

Sorceries

Final Parting - I think for the price, this works fine for now. I am willing to sac 1 card to find any other card I want, unless there's a $1 tutor I could sub in that doesn't force that discard?

Creatures

Drana's Emissary - See Fountain of Renewal :D

Ranger of Eos - This is a good flag - reason I kept Ranger in here was because I'd want him to go and find specifics, if he can come out and trigger to get any one of Leonin Elder, Soul Warden or Soul's Attendant, it could be really good for my setup. If we think it's too flimsy, we can remove it, but having the ability to set up into life gain from Artifacts/Creatures splash ETB seems a good option.

Instants

Murder - Agreed, this is purely in here because cheap/I own it. I will actually remove it though in favor of some of the better cards below

Ray of Distortion - I think I'll keep it for now as I own it and the choice/flashback provides pretty good value

Adds

Enchantments

Ashes of the Abhorrent - Deathgreeter in enchantment form. Also hoses some graveyard strategies

I love this, instant add!

Artifacts

Sun Droplet - This card is a sleeper! Not that it says each upkeep, helping you stack those sweet, sweet Karlov triggers

Oh man, the amount of time's I've removed or added this card is ridiculous. But the more I look at it, the more I think "ok, this is either a massive threat deterrent, or, a massive buff". gotta add it.

Talisman of Hierarchy - I love the talismans. Great rocks in any multicolor EDH deck in my opinion

This is a perfect card to replace one of those lands you mentioned above (I ditched Orzhov Guildgate)

Sorceries

Read the Bones - One of my favorite black draw spells. Card selection plus draw is generally very powerful

This is huge, added

Syphon Mind - A critically underplayed draw spell in my opinion. Puts you up quite a few cards on each opponent

Really struggling to get this into the deck. Potentially can remove Ranger of Eos as this does create some crazy draw / counter... thoughts? Or maybe one of the weaker (Night's Whisper) or high CMC Draw Spells like Hedron Archive or Solemn Simulacrum?

Creatures

Blood Artist / Deathgreeter - This guy does work in so many situations. Usually an auto-target in most metas, that just goes to show how powerful the effect is

Another one that I've added and removed so many times. Suggestions for what comes out for it?

Cliffhaven Vampire / Vizkopa Guildmage - If you're going to run Sanguine Bond, you should consider this guy too

Agreed, same issue though - what isn't giving me enough value with Sanguine/Exquisite to warrant taking out for this?

Divinity of Pride - Similar to Serra Ascendant, big beater for cheap plus lifelink!

See Blood Artist resonse - however I am aware this deck lacks any other source of damage outside of Swol Karlov, so things like Walking Ballista and Serra Ascendant will be handy. I do have Sunscorch Regent - is that worth taking out for this?

Instants

Return to Dust - Gives you options and can snag two cards for one. Considered a staple in some circles

Good add, I removed Kaya's Guile but not sure if this was the right choice?

A card I include in just about all my Boros decks is Sunforger since it can give you a get out of jail free card for board wipes with cards like Boros Charm , Make a Stand , and Unbreakable Formation There is also Teferi's Protection but that card is a little pricy.

Smothering Tithe is definitely a piece of ramp you'll want to include into the deck since if it isn't paid for then you'll quickly build up a good amount of mana.

Myriad Landscape is pretty much a land that also works as a piece of ramp for you.

Some white dragons that are pretty good are Sunscorch Regent since it gets you life while becoming huge and Scalelord Reckoner who will make opens take a loss when they want to target one of your dragons.

A red dragon that wasn't mentioned above is Glorybringer who has haste when he comes in and can act as removal on some of the smaller creatures you'll go up against.

An old dragon that could be an interesting include is Kilnmouth Dragon since he can come in as a massive body if you have other dragons in your hand.

For some full board buffs for damage and sustainability I would include True Conviction since if your commander gets taken out a bunch of times then it is always good to have a backup source of double strike also life link will be amazing on all your dragons.

Dictate of the Twin Gods can be cast at instant speed so dropping this in right before damage will pretty much just kill players.

Crucible of Fire is an awesome card since it will make your dragons much bigger.

There is still plenty of color less tribal support like Herald's Horn and Urza's Incubator so I don't think cost reduction will be much of an issue for the deck. Without green you will need to rely on artifacts more for ramping though.

As for powerful creatures you will have both Silumgars one Ojutais as well as the smaller dragons from their respective Tarkir broods.

Outside of that block you have good old "Skittles" Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon as well as Scalelord Reckoner and Sunscorch Regent from Tarkir. Boneyard Scourge is a nice repeatable dragon so you always have a body. Some oldie but could see come use are Catacomb Dragon.

You have the three star dragons with Keiga, Kokusho, and Yosei who all have really good death triggers.

You will also have access to blue so going with some clones like Spark Double and Clever Impersonator. Mirror Mockery will have some interesting interactions with each of the star dragons and Dragonlord Silumgar

Day of the Dragons could also be a fairly interesting 'meme' card for the deck if you are trying to have some fun.

I find it interesting that you have so many low mana cost creatures here as I tend to think of eggs as a way to cheat out big creatures like Zacama, Primal Calamity fast. Worldspine Wurm is great in this kind of deck since even if it dies you can hatch it out of your eggs again and again and Giant Adephage can get out of control quickly. Zetalpa, Primal Dawn, Void Winnower, and Sunscorch Regent are also a lot of fun to cheat out.

I would also say you need more sac outlets like Goblin Bombardment, High Market and Altar of Dementia. Mosswort Bridge can be another way to cheat out big spells. I highly recommend tapping into your inner Timmy and just filling this deck with all the fatties you're too worried about the mana cost of to put in other decks.

Sunscorch Regent , Mowu, Loyal Companion , Simic Ascendancy (has won me many games when victory via board presence becomes impossible), Evolution Sage (couples AMAZINGLY with Fabled Passage / Evolving Wilds / Terramorphic Expanse , which also help mana fixing).

Ugin's Conjurant , or even better, Stonecoil Serpent . I might also recommend Sunscorch Regent , or even Mowu, Loyal Companion , but neither really fits the theme.

First of all, your commander is AWESOME. Second, I like the goal for low-cost (I'm currently looking at making my own decks more competitive and my wallet cries as I type). And last but not least, I love how Odric is used in this deck. He gives flying to those 4/4 tokens doesn't he? And vigilance from them to everyone else! Thats... rather terrifying actually. Kudos for thinking of that combo.

I would also like to take a moment to say that I'm not sure how casual your group is so my recommendations might not match what you're looking for (also, I don't know your normal play style). Now, for feedback!

You might want to consider swapping a plains for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . It's a bit more expensive than other cards in your deck but I think, with such high devotion to white, it might be worth it.

I would also recommend getting a few more "Oh No" cards. That is, cards that when they come out make your opponents go "Oh No" Maybe consider Sunscorch Regent (gets really big really fast) or maybe Mikaeus, the Lunarch (helps boost all your other creatures).

Since you're playing with tokens, Twilight Drover could also be a good add or Call for Unity (tokens cause it to trigger and then it can boost your tokens and creatures to be stronger...) But really, my #1 recommendation would be to add Cathars' Crusade It triggers on tokens...

Ripwater on Killing with Karlov

I'm back cause I saw your update hahah ;-)

I see you are trying to force more lifegain triggers, I would play any other card with extort wich is not the Pontiff.... The pontiff is way to costly to put down and you basically play him for his extort trigger, the fact that he gives it to everything seems really good but often you don't have the mana to pay up...

If you look for more lifegain triggers and about the same CMC go for Patron of the Kitsune it's a 5/6 flyer (thats already better than the pontiff + it triggers on EACH attack trigger, wich will probably trigger more than the Sunscorch Regent :-)

Slap in a Eight-and-a-Half-Tails and you can cast him on instant speed if needed + the Eight Tales is completely underrate, protecting ALL your permanents for only 3 mana and the ability to make Karlov unblockable...

And now that we are on the subject of unblockable/protection, Mother of Runes and the new Giver of Runes are an absolute auto include in your deck. Eight-tales and Mother did soooo much work and basically protected karlov on instant speed from spot removal and on the offense make him unblockable if they play the right color combo. Now that you als get the Giver of Runes it's even better. Trust me on this one, it will make your life so much easier! Nothing sucks more than when your fat Karlov get's nuked down, and turn 1 mother of runes, turn 2 karlov is most of the time GG for at least 1 player at the table.

Another absolute powerhouse in my deck was Ajani, Caller of the Pride at only 3 mana he often hit my board around turn 3/4 where Karlov was already 6/6, it's really not that hard if you have a turn one Soul Warden and then suddenly Karlov is a 6/6 flying doublestrike in turn 3, needless to say you often removed 1 opponent around turn 4-5 :)

As usual really hope this tips will help you a bit more!
