Love the deck to death, just bought my own Hazezon Tamar, though I am curious as to why you don't run Zada, Hedron Grinder? a lot of possible card draw/token buff w/ cards like Expedite or Accelerate. Also, maybe a bit cheese, but other Purphoros effects wouldn't be bad I think (Impact Tremors)

Cut Jin, Melek and Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius. You generally need a good reason to cast creatures with a similar CMC as your commander, and these either don't provide enough of a reason or are simply too expensive (you could just draw 10 cards immediately instead of playing Jin and drawing a massive amount of hate). Both Deserts are subpar and are probably better off being another Mountain and Academy Ruins. Whispers of the Muse and Accelerate are, to be blunt, terrible and should go. For more red, mix in Teleportal, Bedlam Reveler, Nivix Guildmage and Young Pyromancer.

Budget Friendly Decks:
Talrand, The Sky Summoner: simply fill with counters and other instant and/or sorceries and attack with your drake army. Runechanter's Pike is a good addition as well as Bident of Thassa/Coastal Piracy.
Purphoros, God of the Forge: Have to second this one as I main this. any token spell makes quick work on your opponents. Goblins have the most synergy simply for things like Skirk Prospector, Goblin Recruiter, Goblin Matron, ect. In other words goblins offer tutors for other goblins and are also very prolific.
Karametra, God of Harvests: She is actually pretty darn fun. I built mine quasi-group hug with Heartwood Storyteller, Rites of Flourishing, and Horn of Greed simply for extra card draw and the latter we will abuse to no end. She flies under the radar until your Llanowar Elves and whatnot produce 20+ lands... She also works great as a Landfall general but I wouldn't focus on it. Oh! and she works great with Panglacial Wurm; no one expects a 9/5 trample to get whipped out of nowhere simply for casting Llanowar Elves.
Zada, Hedron Grinder: goblin tribal. All you have to do is throw out a bunch of goblins, cast a cheap cantrip or two (like Accelerate and/or Balduvian Rage) on Zada and in no time you'll have 20+ 26/26 trample, haste goblins and more cards than you know what to do with in hand.
Doran, the Siege Tower: Can be built several ways: goodstuff (albeit more expensive), treefolk tribal (not my cup of tea, very limited), or big butts attack. The latter can be done easily on a budget using cards like Yoked Ox or Tasseled Dromedary. Doran himself is about ~$10 but that can be the most expensive card in the deck.
Edric, Spymaster of Trest: I feel dirty suggesting this one. Add in mana dorks, cheap evasive weenies like Scryb Sprites or Gudul Lurker. Ideally skip all the 2-3 drops, the first 2 turns you want to drop 1 drops so on turn three when Edric comes out you can attack to net cards. As mentioned earlier with Talrand, Coastal Piracy/Bident of Thassa act as Edric replacements. Most people have caught on to his shenanigans by now. You could over time upgrade him too adding in extra turn spells and ways to return them to your hand (like via Eternal Witness).

Sorry it took me a while to look over the deck. Been a busy day. Looks amazing! I love the flavor, as usual! Wanting scry and draw in a w/r deck is very wishful ;). Those are like the two worst colors for draw lol. But there is Temple of Triumph. The temples are my all time favorite lands! Yes it comes in tapped, but that scry is sweet! There are cards like Cathartic Reunion, Accelerate, Crimson Wisps, Dangerous Wager, Abeyance, Angelic Gift, Curtain of Light. Those are just a few, but as you can see they are pretty limited lol. Hope that helps the ed k is awesome

Hey nice list!
Of course it isn't absolutely accurate as this is information goldfished from whatever sources/games you and however is helping the list. Like it is said we can write something to change a commander Tier and try to convince, I have a Zada, Hedron Grinder commander, and when the person who put her as tier 4 saw the card, probably didn't see her combo potential.
She is faster then Krenko, her combo speed is probably very alike Niv-Mizzet who is Tier 2, and everyone knows combo decks on Commander Multiplayer, are probably the strongest archetype you can have. Zada can combo T5 consistently when not interrupted and of course with those broken hands (Sol Ring, Mana Crypt...) She can go off T2/T3, and even when interrupted if she is on the field, you can still take advantage from her ability to full your hand up.
For those who do not know how her deck works, it is really simple. She makes a copy of an instant/sorcery that you target her for every creature you have, so.
Span Tokens -> use something like Accelerate (There are 9 of these on the deck)-> draw a bunch of cards -> gain huge amounts of mana with something like Battle Hymn (4 alike on the deck)-> Repeat, drop your deck on the field :) and use something like Enrage
It is extremely easy to set it up, and can win from nowhere, also if your commander is on the field it useless to counter her cantrips (unless its a Stifle), she is waay stronger then almost all Tier 3 list, so there is no reason for her to be Tier 4 xD, following this path of thoughts, she is easily Tier 2, maybe even 1, but 2 would be a nice fit for her.

I should probably say first that I am running Zada, Hedron Grinder as my commander because I love Mirrorwing Dragon. I don't really have a big budget right now and I don't think Mono-Red is the best color for this type of effect (If I could, I'd run R/G with creature tutors and pump spells), but since options are limited, I'll take what I can get. This deck is mostly just for fun. Don't get me wrong, I love tokens. (Almost all of my other decks use them extensively) But there is already both a Krenko and Daretti in my playgroup (owned by the same guy) and I don't really want to copy him.
Flagellum: I have a few of those, and I should definitely get a Dualcaster Mage, since I run both Twinflame and Heat Shimmer. Have been leaning towards Krenko, Mob Boss (and Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs) because his sheer token producing power is maddening. (Additionally, Zada is a goblin, thats like 1 whole more token, whic later turns into two, then four) At what percentage of ETB token generation creatures makes it worthwhile running Feldon of the Third Path? 40%? 70%? I also wonder when Thatcher Revolt is useful aside from combos with Twinflame/Accelerate or all in swings? I see the light on Genesis Chamber and Ironically, I have a Norin the Wary looking for a place somewhere...
I know that tutors are not good in red, but this deck doesn't really care what it has in it's hand, as long as it has creatures on the field and a pump spell. I will need to get Swiftfoot Boots and friends in the deck to make sure Zada is up and running.
enpc: Goblins ftw in red, I have seen what they can do, its horrifying to some extent.
TheDirtyWizard: Mostly what I want for the deck is to be cool and interesting. Like I said, the deck may eventually change to a R/G token-creature tutor deck in the future, but for now I just wanna have fun with it. I wonder who would be the best R/G commander for this type of deck.. Ulasht, the Hate Seed?
MasterofMirrodin: One thing I do like is being able to restock your hand at instant speed, it would make your next turn really exciting! To be honest, viable is good enough for me.
chirz2792: Is Goblin Rabblemaster worth using in this case? Say I don't have a buff spell, but my 3 goblins which constitute half my current field are forced to jump the gun and attack. It seems like the drawback is meh at best.
