Austin_Smith_of_Cards Thanks for your suggestions! I've found that those mass pump spells aren't very effective, mostly because the swarm strategy is less effective than just focusing on the combo. I've also found that Kari Zev's Expertise isn't particularly efficient for what it does, and I'm a little skeptical about Boiling Blood, as it's a little expensive and can be detrimental for your board. I've also tried Titan's Strength. It's a little slow, but it's still fine. I don't like it enough to put in the deck, but it's still very good.

You might also consider Titan's Strength to scry away a ton of cards you don't want to draw so you can set up a wincon faster. Team pump is also excellent, and all for one mana.

Hey, twinsies! The Red Menace (Zada)
Our decks look super similar, but Zada is definitely a single-optimum-build style so I'd call that good. Few suggestions I've found work great for me:
Burn at the Stake is my favorite anti-stax/pillowfort tech, for when you need to kill a player but can't get through their board.
Screaming Fury is sorcery speed and -slightly- costly mana-wise but will win you games.
Boiling Blood: drawing cards is super important, but I found there were times when I definitely didn't want to have to attack with the team to do so. It being 3 mana sealed the deal.
Pyromancer's Goggles don't work like we want them to. You only get one copy of the spell even if it's targeting Zada, since the copy isn't cast. At best it's a 5-mana rock that can draw you an extra card or give one thing an additional few power. I cut it pretty early, as I never found it worth the cost unless I was copying a token-producing spell.
Thought Vessel's colorless mana might be too situational, since we reeeeeeally need red due to sheer # of spells we're casting. The max hand size clause is useful but I'm not sure it's worth the deck slot (if you're really worried, can slot in an Expedition Map to grab Reliquary Tower).
+1 for Zada! She's a crazy fun deck to play~

RyProv I think Boiling Blood can be a very usefull card. Can drop it on endstep before my upkeep to have loads of cards to play with, can be used as soft removal for creatures often also. I think ill keep it for now as the deck needs as much cards as possible.

I would suggest cutting Boiling Blood as well. Pricey, and you still have like 6 other draw cards. Do you get much net gain out of Mana Geyser? I've tried running it multiple times but I could never find a situation where it was extremely useful.

Let me explain them to you:
If you play all those draw spells I mentioned earlier, lightning storm (and Reliquary Tower to keep the cards) let's you redirect all the spells by discarding lands for each one, and also upping the power to 5. Therefore, for each land you discard to 5 damage to an opponent (some of your creatures will die but who cares).
Seize the Day gives you a TON of combats.
Strionic resonator DOUBLES Zada's ability.
One more thing. Vandalblast is great in red.
