So I´m fooling around in Historic and... I´m thinking boros can be a competitive deck... here´s were I am ATM.

The Gruul or mono green matchup has not been so bad after I added those 4 justice strikes.
Sigil Sword of Valeron is so good with Fervent Champion in the control matchup I love it.
so thoughts and obvious omissions?

4 x Worthy Knight
4 x Plains
4 x Venerable Knight
3 x Acclaimed Contender
4 x Fervent Champion
4 x Mountain
4 x Benalish Marshal
4 x Inspiring Veteran
4 x Tournament Grounds
4 x Dauntless Bodyguard
4 x History of Benalia
3 x Kinsbaile Cavalier
2 x Conclave Tribunal
4 x Clifftop Retreat
4 x Sacred Foundry
4 x Justice Strike

Sideboard
3 x Embereth Shieldbreaker
4 x Skyknight Vanguard
4 x Skyknight Legionnaire
2 x Sigiled Sword of Valeron
2 x Conclave Tribunal

Spoiler

I was thinking even mono white when you talked about tribes earlier. But if you go Boros, I suggest not forgetting Embercleave. You can get that out t3 if you start with 3 one-drops, which is probably your plan anyway. It doesn't one-shot people on a weenie, but it's still a mighty blade. Triple Fervent Champion into it would be 19 damage on t3. There's even a possible t3-kill for you can play another Fervent Champion and Embercleave on t3 - doesn't require all Fervents even.

How is the mana for Benalish Marshal? 4 Mountains don't cast it and 4 Tournament Grounds don't help the checkland.

Yes the mana base needs some work, but cleave I dont think its a good call imo, when I got a 4 cmc guy that gives all my creatures double strike.
I´m testing Heroic reinforcements also and it has been decent enough.

Most times if I cant get the fast kill I end up in a stall and Heroic really helps there to push some damage in.
I went up to Diamond 2 with it but then went back to D3 :(

Preferred Pronoun Set: Mr.
It being a Knight deck I don't see Tournament Grounds hurting the checklands to be too much of a nerf. Marshal looks pretty easy to play with them and honestly I think with them you could afford to Mardu the bunch with some Ebon and Rider.
