Man, there's a lot here. Personally I would take out about 3-4 lands. 42 seems a bit much, you really don't wanna be flooded.

In my deck Xenagos, the Chubby Chaser, I use big creatures to get the most out of Xenagos while stopping my opponents dead in their tracks with cards like Price of Glory, City of Solitude, Urabrask the Hidden and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, heck you could really use a card like Winter Orb after a huge creature is out.

Removal I use around 8-10 sources. Chandra's Ignition and Blasphemous Act are the best in red. Your spot removal is pretty spot on ;p except maybe use Reclamation Sage or Bane of Progress instead of the caterpillar.

For tutors Green Sun's Zenith is amazing. And Tooth and Nail mostly wins me games.

For cuts I would cut out Fires of Yavimaya and your haste sources because if you play a dude Xenagos will give it haste. Seems redundant. Chandra because she does little for you because if your dudes are huge and have trample it doesn't matter if their creatures block. you could play Garruk, Caller of Beasts. Curse of Predation when you could play Berserk. Avenger of Zendikar seems too slow here, to me Xenagos and tokens really don't mix. Desolation Twin seems too expensive for this deck for giving you two 10/10s with no abilities. Burn from Within doesn't do enough to me to just kill one creature.

Coming in I would definitely put in Oracle of Mul Daya, Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, Strionic Resonator, Mage Slayer, Scourge of the Throne, Dragonlord Atarka, Savage Beating, Aggravated Assault, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Greater Good, Thunderfoot Baloth, Blood Moon, Kalonian Hydra seems good.

Overall, good deck. R/G is fairly easy to build. Finally, don't let somebody tell you that the deck you worked hard to build is a fail. Let them give you pointers and suggestions but you do whatever the hell you wanna do. Control is a hard archaetype to play, it takes timing and it always draws some hate (trust me I know). If you didn't like it that's fine, but don't let other people take the control player out of you. If they don't like it, tell them to board cards in that deal with it. That's their issue not yours. Good luck and above all else have fun!

A friend of mine got a Gentry mono-red deck. He using similar cards and performs very well. i'm writing some of them at below. You should consider my suggests and modify your deck.

Expedite, Renegade Tactics, Shock, Fiery Temper, Burn from Within, Skyship Stalker, Weaver of Lightning, Tormenting Voice,Harness the Storm, Lightning Axe, Sanguinary Mage, Savage Alliance, Incendiary Flow, Collective Defiance, Bedlam Reveler

Also if you gonna build U/R you can add cards like Stormchaser Mage, Thing in the Ice  Flip and Fevered Visions

NomadArtificer Sorry about the delayed reply, it's my definitely my fault. While I like Consulate Dreadnought it can be blocked every turn by a single 1/1 creature. Every vehicle in this deck either has trample or flying.

CrimsonLiege As for you moron.

Burn from Within, 3x Declaration in Stone, 3x Harnessed Lightning, 2x Release the Gremlins, 3x Ride Down

See that? That's 12 removal cards in my SB alone not counting:

3x Immolating Glare

That's 3 in the main for a total of 15. Here's a thought: if you have nothing to contribute, even if all it requires is ONE brain cell... Then keep your idiot mouth shut and learn to know what you're talking about.

I'm considering to use Unlicensed Disintegration, Burn from Within or Reality Shift in the sideboard.

I suggest swaping Blaze with Burn from Within. Straight upgrade.

Mr.Maniac: I'm glad you agree with Waxing Moon because I think it's versatile in combat and in conserving mana. If played well with something like Ulvenwald Captive  Flip it essentially makes Waxing Moon free. Burn from Within is good, but sorcery speed is not. The thing I like most about Blessed Alliance is the options I have early game and late game.

WonderingSavior: I've been debating adding Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip only because I want werewolves that stay permanently transformed. I may replace Conduit of Storms  Flip because I think it's one of the slower cards in my deck and I can get more mana main phase 1 that way than waiting until main phase 2. I did have Village Messenger  Flip at first, but then I replaced it with Kessig Prowler  Flip. I'm definitely replacing Precise Strike with Blossoming Defense! I want to throw in Moonlight Hunt, but I'm struggling to decide which card to take out. Would Uncaged Fury be reasonable to switch out?
