You are done!

This is a deck that started out as a need to have something that was not a "meta deck" while also being fun to play and competitive in a certain degree.
Started out as a Boros [[Angelic Exaltation]] deck, the idea was to flood the board with creatures and attack with 1 to make it incredibly big, which can be scary if you have an Aurelia, or even scarier with a Swiftblade Vindicator.

After doing a research, and play testing, i decided to go in a different approach, a more "simple" yet effective one; more similar to a White Weenie deck.
Finally, this is the result of my experimentation and lots wins and failures, A deck that hits hard, has good recovery after a board wipe, and if left unbothered, can be incredibly devastating, easily doing 15+ dmg on 1 turn.

The deck:

The deck centers around [[Hero of Precinct One]] to generate pressure through numbers, abusing the large amount of multicolored cards that Boros has to offer, We get [[Unbreakable Formation]] for defence, [[Heroic Reinforcements]] for a board-wide buff and all-out attack, while we use [[Justice Strike]] to ensure big creatures are not much of an issue.
There is a lack of Board wipes like [[Fiery Cannonade]] or [[Deafening Clarion]], which are good to have, but can be detrimental to out strategy, at the same time, so we just use Hero's token to chump-block or our own creatures when necessary, after all small creatures are not much of an issue, we have a good defence against them.
And to close it up, we have the other 2 Key pieces of our deck.
1- [[History of Benalia]], which creates more board presence and pressures our opponent to deal with a possibly big threat, which also buffs our 4x [[Skyknight Legionnaire]] making Benalia quite the threat, as if left unchecked, it means 8 dmg on turn 3, or minimum of 12, if Legionnaires are on the board. Also has the added benefit of being a hated card (well deserved hate, of course), which makes opponents rush to deal with it, giving a chance of survival to your other creatures.
2- [[Aurelia, Exemplar]], amazing card to have on this deck, flyer, good defender, Mentor and an awesome buff, that makes most of our creatures even more scarier than they are (as most are both Red and White, thus getting full benefits of that buff), best examples are [[Swiftblade Vindicator]] meaning a potential 6 dmg on it's own if unblocked, or a Skyknight Legionnaire buffed by Benalia which has a potential equal to Vindicator, but with the added benefit of Flying.

War of the Spark updates:  After War of the Spark came out i took a little time to check the new stuff, and i'm still trying things out and also getting some cards to test them.
I also added a Sideboard, but that is another work in progress, as the new meta is not yet even close to be established.
But even though the meta is not yet set in stone, i think that [[Dovin, Hand of Control]] and [[Angrath, Captain of Chaos]] will prove to be very efficient against control and aggro match-ups respectively.

The deck was quite play tested and after quite some testing, it was used on ranked play, up until that point it had a quite surprising Winrate of 72% which is quite good, even with less than 100 games. On ranked it has so far a winrate of  65%, 41:22 games.

Edit: BTW: feel free to comments, give suggestions or critiques, they are all welcome.
