Braid of Fire is better than I initially thought. Let's include it, too.

Since its easier to kill creatures than anything I stay away from cards like Dragonspeaker Shaman. I'd replace it with a mana rock.

Gratuitous Violence doubles all your creature damage, even non-combat damage.

Mana-Charged Dragon should be in here (maybe instead of Spawn of Thraxes?).

You have a ton of pumpable creatures so... Braid of Fire. Pump them during upkeep with free mana. My Purphoros / dragon deck kills people with Dragon Hatchling sometimes.

How about a Braid of Fire to pay for instants during your upkeep? And I personally enjoying running a Primal Amulet  Flip (in my mono red) to copy spells. The other night I ripped off copies of Fork, Geosurge and Browbeat. It was fun!

Not a bad start but I think if you really want to use Akroma then you need more mana. Some of these are a little out of budget but not by more than a few dollars. Gauntlet of Power, Braid of Fire, Caged Sun, Koth of the Hammer, Extraplanar Lens, Mana Flare. All of these allow you to seriously pump Akroma or abuse spells like Fireball, with enough mana either of those will knock out a player. I would consider removing equipment first to make room for these, you don't really need the power boost they give if you have more mana.

You might even consider infinite red mana with something like Mana Geyser + Reiterate.

Iterative Insight


Cumulative Upkeep - Scry 1.


Braid of Fire was a good template. Let's make more positive cumulative upkeeps!

Great deck you have here! Def an awesome group of creatures.

I'd recommend Sensei's Divining Top to calculate the top of your library. Now tough decision here because I love Banefire, but because it's an 'X' cost you may want to take it out since it can't work with Etali's ability off the top. Some other wipes you could put in would be Star of Extinction or Urza's Rage, Obliterate. Not sure if any of those do what you want them to do but for sake of board wipe they're possibly better. Instead of Act of Treason throw in the bomb Insurrection, and instead of Mana Geyser maybe go for Braid of Fire. Possibly Vandalblast over Smelt as well. Because I'm pretty sure you can cast the overload right off rip.

Hopefully some of this helps!

You can run cards like Fuel for the Cause for proliferating, and if that is too much mana you can run Braid of Fire, Seething Song, or Simian Spirit Guide. And for the mana flexibility, you could use Crumbling Necropolis, Evolving Wilds, Crumbling Vestige, or Holdout Settlement.
