Battle Hymn Discussion

Manamorphose is one of a kind- there aren't any clean swaps for it. Its why an uncommon got valuable.
You are either picking a card advantage tool or a free spell, and you will want to adjust your list for it.
SSG, Wild Cantor doesn't trigger pheonix, etc. Mind Stone offers draw and ramp, but is enough slower that it really matters. Battle Hymn / Desperate Ritual can be fun to ramp hard, but is card disadvantage. Burning-Tree Emissary is a free creature, but its not the same.
If you are prepared to restructure a little more of the deck there are good options, but you are basically looking at Gut Shot / Mutagenic Growth , Rift Bolt (to get a suspended spell then two others) or just playing more burn cards.

Darksteel Myr , Guardians of Meletis , and Workshop Assistant Are all cards that seem like they don’t really do good things for your dragons, they are good blockers at best, but they are going to be really low impact on the board and don’t really fit the theme. Some options for replacements are blockers that are less hardy but ramp you into your dragons faster like— Palladium Myr and Iron Myr . And if you’re looking for quicker ways to interact with the board I’d use something like Dragon Hatchling before I’d use the artifact dudes.
Alchemist's Vial and Explorer's Scope Seem not that great, mana rocks or permanents that aren’t lands, but give mana are super good for the high casting cost dragon archetype, but I’d go for some of the other ones like Fire Diamond , Hedron Archive , Darksteel Ingot , Dreamstone Hedron , Burnished Hart
Angel's Tomb Seems pretty mediocre, it makes a single angle, some of the time. Yeah it gets around board wipes like Wrath of God but there are cooler ways to get around that like Dragon Egg or cards that actually benefit from being blown up like Anger
Battle Hymn is only particularly good, when you have several creatures out. When you are running so many big creatures it is going to be tough to have a lot out. So I’d hesitate to use it here.
Glimmerpost is only really useful in conjunction with Cloudpost , and even then I’d likely skip them in a format where you can only use one of each, they get powerful when you can run four copies of each in a deck.
Comet Storm Earthquake Pyrohemia and Hour of Devastation are all great for clearing out boards with a lot of stuff on it and since you’ll likely be trying to wipe out the game with a lot less creatures a lot of the time they’ll hurt your opponents way more than they hurt you. Relentless Assault is also just super good and cheap. You’ll also likely not have to deal with as many blockers as dragons fly, but a neat card to make your dragons more evasive and harder to chump block is Archetype of Aggression and also Goblin War Drums
Two cards that are likely out of budget, but are crazy good for the deck are Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle and Zirilan of the Claw . And Since you are in Mono Red I would 100% switch to Lathliss, Dragon Queen

The Five cards I would suggest to max out on your devil spells and damage output. Number 1 Impact Tremors adds a lot of value for playing token generating spells. Number 2 is Goblin Bombardment , this offers you responses to explosions and such that provide you with extra damage output. Third is Bonus Round doubles up your instant and sorcery spells providing extra damage and nice combos. Fourth is Gratuitous Violence , doubled creature damage for you. Fifth cards is Purphoros, God of the Forge , works the same as impact tremors with more value plus hard to remove since it has indestructible. Cards like Battle Hymn and Pyretic Ritual could also find a place but that's more play preference and assessing if you need the additional mana for your combos or win cons to function properly

Hey, so I think you should run Umbral Mantle over Sword of the Paruns , only because its cheaper option in terms of mana (umbral needs 6 to get going, paruns need 10). I recommend goblin war strike, its useful for removing a big creature (just like outnumber), but it is also useful in just out right removing someone from the game. If you ever have mana issues (especially given the higher cmc cards you run), i recommend Brightstone Ritual , Battle Hymn , and Mana Echoes (mana echoes is especially useful in that when krenko taps, the tokens that he creates in would end up creating a lot of colorless mana rather quickly. (Theres a formula to it, 2N^2, where N is number of goblins created. In addition, when you a lot of mana, you could use Comet Storm to just win against an entire group.

The hydras seem a little out of place. With all the draw offered by your deck, I would think Battle Hymn could prove very useful.

Hey dude, I like your deck - I have a combo primer that might give you some ideas: [cEDH] Krenko Combo [Primer].
