have you considered running Skred/Snow-Covered Mountain? Alot of mono red control decks run it to deal with larger creatures.

Koth of the Hammer/Chandra, Torch of Defiance also see play in mono red control decks

Hey Ruby, I don't know if you got my notification or not from your trade binder. I have 4x Inspiring Vantage 3x Concealed Courtyard 3x Scrapheap Scroungerand 1x Chandra, Torch of Defiance I was really interested in 3 of your Sacred Foundry and 2x Path to Exile. Wondering if you'd be willing to make a trade?

Hello Friend. IMO.

Skysovereign, Consul Flagship for Goblin Welder A limited bomb...I am unsure if it carries it full mana cost in commander.

Darksteel Forge for Etched Oracle

Thopter Spy Network for Whipflare

Spire of Industry for Hellkite Igniter Terrible Win con IMO.

Kuldotha Forgemaster for Chandra, Torch of Defiance I actually believe she has little synergy and doesn't benefit the over strategy of the decks design.

Whir of Invention for Pia Nalaar

Scrap Trawler for Foundry Inspector Built-in recursion through deck design outweighs the benefit from the reduction in casting cost.

Hangarback Walker for Vedalken Engineer

Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast for Faerie Artisans

Ok so I reworked your deck and you're right, Attune with Aether is good here for it gives you a guaranteed land drop and it will lessen your bad draws by shuffling your library. I also replaced your planeswalkers by having 2x Chandra, Torch of Defiance and 1x Arlinn Kord  Flip. I think arlinn kord is nice here for it gives your big bodies vigilance and haste...and also it gives you a blocker and later on you give your big guys trample.

With regards to land destruction spells, I will keep 3x Crumble to Dust (most of the decks right now have non basic lands), 4x Reclaiming Vines and 4x Structural Distortion because they're flexible.

You should update your list here so that your viewers can playtest it and further help you out improve your deck. Let me know if you have more questions.

I think you should go for less creatures and use more board wipe/removal in black and burn in red. Maybe even throw in two Chandra, Torch of Defiance

  1. I would drop these cards-4x sarkhan vol -3x gifted aetherborn -3x Glint-Sleeve Siphoner -1x pillar of flames -1x hissing quagmire -2x blooming marsh -3x foreboding ruins

  2. Stuff you should add instead:+1-2x Chandra, Pyromaster / Chandra, Torch of Defiance+2-3x Goblin Dark-Dwellers (to flashback any relevant cards from grave)+1x Kolaghan's Command +2x Terminate+1-2x Anger of the Gods+3x Sylvan Advocate or Grim Flayer (to bash face)+5x Any combination of shock lands which shouldn't be too expensive and make your deck a lot more consistent.

Sorry for the aweful formatting, still getting used to this site.

Love the idea of the combo between Scrapheap Scrounger and Eternal Scourge! Relentless Dead seems a bit out of place here... this card works quite good in a zombie deck (in a previous version of my zombie deck I had it) but out of that field is not so good... at her place you may put some planes like Chandra, Torch of Defiance that her +1 is perfect for Eternal Scourge.Probably you may put 3 Chandra 4 Fatal Push and 4 Unlicensed Disintegration dropping 1 Pia's Revolution.

Not sure I like her over Ajani. Now if he gave -- making it easier to transmute Muddle the Mixture -- or if her mana did not empty at end of phase, it would be a different story. But there are a number of other walkers I would consider before Chandra, Torch of Defiance. I would use Gideon Jura, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Dovin Baan, Koth of the Hammer, and Narset Transcendent all before Chandra. Which feels weird to say -- because I do not even like some of those walkers, but I like Chandra a lot.
