Strive - Twinflame costs 2R more to cast for each target beyond the first.
Choose any number of target creatures you control. For each of them, put a token that's a copy of that creature onto the battlefield. Those tokens have haste. Exile them at the beginning of the next end step.

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.
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.

Dualcaster Mage is a personal pet card of mine. It's the best spell in each deck at the table. ;) It is a wincon with Twinflame and Heat Shimmer. With any of the flicker effects, it is infinite magecraft but I wouldn't say it's a wincon.

TerraBlaze I personally love running Dockside Extortionist, Kor Cartographer and Solemn Simulacrum with cards like Twinflame, Cloudshift, Ephemerate, and Eerie Interlude. To a lesser extent Graceful Reprieve. If you are doing something like this as a package of protection spells as well as additional targets then the idea of putting the recruiters in work pretty well.

Naru wouldn't give you the redundancy you want because it is legendary so the tokens will not be able to attack in the Twinflame combo. It does work in the other scenarios though, in your playtesting, do you have a hard time tutoring for or seeking out Dualcaster? I feel like that would be the deciding factor for me since it doesn't just work as an additional copy of Dualcaster in your deck. I think i would playtest with it and see if you can afford to lose another piece of ramp, or interaction without it hurting too bad. I definitely wouldnt remove Shimmer for it though.

Thanks for the suggestion Kalkris. I honestly hadn't considered that combo for this deck. I think after the Chain of Smog + Professor Onyx combo blew up, it fell off my radar. The endless spoiler seasons have also made it harder to keep track of everything lol.
The only combo I was considering adding so far was Dualcaster Mage + Twinflame; I figured Dualcaster could be a decent value piece for copying spells, regardless of the combo. After the couple of games I played this weekend, I have been kicking the idea around the back of my mind of a more spell-slinger dedicated Prosper list. At the very least, I'd like to add maybe one or two more pieces of instant speed interaction, perhaps Withering Boon

Absolutely love the primer that you’ve written for your Inalla deck.
I wanted to mention a couple of all stars that I’ve found when I’ve been playing Inalla; the first is Trinket Mage which is incredibly versatile when you run all three of the artifact lands in the Grixis colours (Seat of the Synod, Vault of Whispers & Great Furnace). Some of the wizards in the deck can be quite tricky to cast with the coloured mana symbols in their costs but with Trinket Mage you can grab a land of the colour that you’re missing along with a Sol Ring. Another Trinket Mage target that I’ve been experimenting with is Skullclamp, as so many wizards only have one toughness they make great targets for the clamp and it’s even better when you’re clamping a token copy of the wizard as well.
The final card I wanted to mention is Twinflame which can be used as a win condition with Dualcaster Mage similar to the Ghostly Flicker combo except that Twinflame gives the token copy haste as well so you don’t need to create a copy using the eminence trigger. The best part about using this combo is that Twinflame is searchable using Spellseeker and with the token copy of Spellseeker you can search for a tutor like Demonic Tutor/Diabolic Tutor that can then find your Dualcaster Mage allowing you to combo quickly if you’re playing against some powerful decks.
