Arch of Orazca - Repeatable late game draw

Commune with Lava - Late game "draw," can be used end of opponents turn as well

Hedron Archive - Ramp and card draw

Ignite the Future - Very good "draw"

Light Up the Stage - Almost as good "draw"

Mind's Eye - Expensive, but mid-late game draw is always nice

You have virtually no draw, just lots of looting which is fine for GY shenanigans but you will run out of gas quickly.

Gauntlet of Power - Ramp

Stranglehold - Stops tutoring and land fetching

Hanweir Battlements - Haste

Myriad Landscape - Ramp

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle - Burn

Stranglehold - Stops tutors, fetches, land fetching, etc... very powerful

Crystal Chimes - With so many enchantments, this can't hurt.

Sunbird's Invocation - If they let this resolve and stick, its hard not to win if you build your deck correctly

Chandra, Torch of Defiance - Removal, card draw, ramp and wincon all in 1

Better equipment honestly. Like sword of feast and famine, fire and ice, etc...

Arcane Signet > Fire Diamond

Ruby Medallion

Sword of the Animist > Explorer's Scope

I would suggest more ramp, but I feel card draw is a bigger issue at the moment given your low CMC.

I know the deck is low to the ground but understand that card draw is what you desperately need in red. Because as of now, you lack any real means of car draw. I understand the aggro part of Mono red, but this deck isn't nearly fast enough for you to get a quick win and therefore need to consider other options that help maintain gas into the mid-late game. For a voltron deck, you need to protect your commander. Equipments and auras can help, but they can (and wise opponents will always) hold up removal in response to auras or equipment. Price of Glory will make them think twice. Other potential options can be Bolt Bend and Shunt . They redirect removal and counter counterspells. Very important for a voltron deck.

So I saw Bolt Bend in your list and realized it would be amazing for my Xenagos deck so thank you! To repay the favor, I'm gonna make this deck a lot better, get ready. Not all of these suggestions are necessary, pick and choose which you think work best.

Arch of Orazca - Late game draw that doesn't take up a spot

Commune with Lava - Can be played on opponents end step if needed, helps ensure land drops and gas. I recently took this out of my Norin list to add a combo, but this still puls it's weight even on X = 3 or 4

Endless Atlas - Cheap repeatable card draw

Hedron Archive - Budget ramp and draw, decent inclusion

Ignite the Future - Useful with top to ensure you can cast (activate top, put it on top, cast ignite). Speaking of which, where is your Sensei's Divining Top ?

Ignite the Future - Usually for , pretty good

Mind's Eye - Expensive, but repeatable

Skullclamp - With all of your 1 toughness creatures, this should be in

Solemn Simulacrum - Ramp and card draw, always good

Tome of Legends - Best draw in your deck, it will ALWAYS have counters, cheap to play, cheap to activate. If you listen to anything I say, add this and atlas.

Curse of Opulence - Use Norin or any of your 30 creatures to ramp you

Dockside Extortionist - Very good card all around, even better with Panharmonichron and Gensis chamber

Honor-Worn Shaku - Tap Norin to add more mana. Works with Planeswalkers and purphurous as well

Mox Amber - More early game ramp. Curse and mox are both low on the curve for you.

Ruby Medallion - Good cheap ramp

Myriad Landscape - Ramp

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle - Lighting bolts are fun

Inventors' Fair - Tutor and lifegain, always good

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - Ramp

Chandra, Torch of Defiance - Ramp, removal, draw and wincon all in one. Plus it fuels Honor and mox

Dualcaster Mage - Super useful!

Stranglehold - Stops tutoring, basic land fetch. Overall good card

Sunbird's Invocation - High CMC but so much value! If they don't answer this, you should win

Let me know if you want ideas for cuts, other suggestions or want to bounce ideas off of each other as Norin players.

Arcane Signet > Fire Diamond

Why do you run swiftfoot boots, do you need the hexproof or can you just swap with Lightning Greaves ?

No Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx ? Goes very well with your commander

Myriad Landscape for ramp?

Volcanic Offering - Destroys 4 things with 1 card, at instant speed. Can be used politically as well.

Chandra, Torch of Defiance - Ramp, Card advantage, removal and wincon all in 1

Stranglehold - Stops fetches, tutoring and land ramp. Very powerful for 4 mana

Any good mono red deck will find a way to refill it's hand, especially with such a low Avg CMC. As such, you should consider the following...

Arch of Orazca - Repeatable late game draw

Commune with Lava - Draw

Endless Atlas - Best card I can recommend for mono red, repeatable and cheap to play, cheap to activate

Hedron Archive - Whole the CMC is high on this one, it might be worth considering

Humble Defector - Politics. Plus it's fun with Homeward Path should you be inclined

Mind's Eye - Repeatable card draw. Yes its 5 mana, yes it doesnt do anything the turn it comes down so I understand why you would not like it. But repeatable card draw is repeatable card draw

Skullclamp - With all the devils and tokens you make, this should be an auto include

Solemn Simulacrum - Does everything you need, card draw and ramp

Tome of Legends - Might be worth considering

Magus of the Wheel - Oh look, you used vampiric tutor on my end step. Cool, pass priority during draw step so I can make you wheel away whatever you discarded. But seriously, wheels can be very helpful. While it does refuel opponent's hands and helps GY strategies, it should not be overlooked

Memory Jar - Yes it's expensive, but a psuedo wheel might be worth considering. It's also reserved list

Wheel of Fortune - Best wheel
