Whenever Coalhauler Swine is dealt damage, it deals that much damage to each player.

UnleashedHavok thanks very much for recognizing the effort that goes into a deck description like this! The cards you listed are definitely a good core for the start of this deck. Stranglehold probably isn't actually necessary, it's just one of the best cards that Red has available and should probably be in every red deck. That being said, you could probably build this whole deck for little more than $60. Just don't have it foiled out and use something else in place of Wheel of Fortune like Reforge the Soul. It shouldn't be very expensive otherwise.
Eldrazi Monument is in here because you should generally be able to win in a single turn once you start casting big spells. The monument protects Neheb and your other creatures from all your symmetrical burn spells and most importantly, it allows Coalhauler Swine to take a fuckton of damage and pass it on to everyone without dying, which combos with Fortune Thief too. Malignus isn't in the deck and probably won't ever be as I wanted to play it and War Elemental with Fling but that turned out to be too slow to be super useful. Glacial Chasm is a fun choice but since I do actually want to attack most of the time it would risk being a bummer. Also, I hate playing lands that don't make mana because it fucks your tempo in a multiplayer game badly.
Sean4447 maybe in other people's builds. You're right about it being great with Repercussion but so are most of the spells already in this deck, and they can't be countered by Strip Mine like Star of Extinction.
goblinguiderevealpls I addressed stuffy doll in the description, I feel that Coalhauler Swine is better and more interesting. Rakdos neheb is definitely a good card for a solid minotaur build, it's a shame he's not Mardu though as there are some good boros minotaurs. Idk why I'd have to win the lottery to replace the mountains with SC mountains as they're not particularly expensive and I actually have several dozen spare ones already, but that interaction wouldn't be especially valuable in this deck and I like having the true singleton mountains with all different arts.
Thank you all for your comments and thoughts!

So I want to make another immortality deck and I was thinking of putting tribal gideon into the mix for Gideon of the Trials. Especially with the new rulings on planeswalkers. My thoughts were putting in the following cards:
Exquisite Archangel Lich's Mirror Platinum Angel Transcendence Platinum Emperion Worship Resolute Archangel Solitary Confinement so its kinda like the lich deck I have but I was thinking about making it mono white with Kytheon, Hero of Akros at the helm to keep the gideon emblem in affect.
Real question is, what should the other 90 cards be? What tactic would you run in mono white to try and become immortal? Or should I splash in and put some combos like Teferi's Protection/Render Silent + Elite Arcanist and Silence/Orim's Chant + Isochron Scepter then shove Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir. Then counterspell for a good amount of the rest.
Need some ideas on how to be the best jerk that no one wants to play with lol

My original plan wasn't actually to be creatureless as there were some I always wanted to play like Prophetic Flamespeaker and Coalhauler Swine among others. There's still only 50% or less of the creatures in a typical EDH deck so I'm happy with the result.
Yeah most people would probably rather play Dictate of Furnace for the damage doubling but I like the OG and the extra devotion. Feels really red. Also, since I'm trying to burn everyone up, a furnace seems appropriate. But yeah it sounds like you got the combos down. I think I explained it in the description too right? If you love the list, I'd appreciate your upvote to keep getting Neheb more visibility on the site! Thanks for commenting.

I was running Platinum Emperion but switched him out for Fortune Thief which essentially solves the same problem in the deck and I've always wanted to play her. I considered Pariah's Shield exactly for what you're saying or maybe for putting on Coalhauler Swine, but without them it doesn't do much and I currently cut Stuffy Doll since it only focuses on one person. This deck already makes people focus me enough because I'm relatively aggro, I realized I don't need the doll to kill them all and it just makes one person saltier at me. Often I have only a couple creatures including Neheb and it's not like I want him to die from the Shield if I don't have a pro-red sword.

Thanks for the kind words Podma101! Mana doublers are great, but what I've discovered so far is that they're totally unnecessary wasted card slots in this deck. As you've noted yourself, Neheb can already generate such incredible amounts of mana that you can end up running out of cards to play. In that case, the mana doublers will serve no further purpose other than letting you reliably recast Neheb. Hopefully the deck will run smooth enough that that won't be a problem, but we'll see how it evolves with more testing. There's a good amount of card draw/advantage in here specifically because you can burn through your hand really quickly. And the only other X spell I want to include is Molten Disaster. I'm generally not a fan of X spells as they feel fairly boring and unsatisfying to win with. I'd rather play Coalhauler Swine+Stuffy Doll+Fortune Thief+Eldrazi Monument+Furnace of Rath into Blasphemous Act and watch all my opponents explode for 1 haha
Also, I love Leyline of Punishment and tried to run it, but I realized quickly that it nixed my protection from red coming from Akroma's Memorial and the two Swords of X and Y, which are key pieces to keeping my limited creatures from getting wiped out by my own symmetrical burn smells.

Boros is always difficult for card draw and ramp. I'm going to list all the ones I have been playing with some of the budget ones are really great and some of the expensive ones really are worth the cost.
Here are some of the things I have been playing with and found useful for my Angel Tribal (work in progress) deck.
Ramp; Knight of the White Orchid, Burnished Hart, Wild-Field Scarecrow, Solemn Simulacrum, Pilgrim's Eye, Myriad Landscape, Pearl Medallion, Sword of the Animist, Khalni Gem, Armillary Sphere, Land Tax, Gift of Estates, Tithe, Oath of Lieges, Sword of Feast and Famine and Crucible of Worlds(which will allow you to hit all your land drops if you have fetch lands)
Mana rocks that can be used as ramp to get your fatties out early;Sol Ring, Worn Powerstone, Gilded Lotus, Hedron Archive, Boros Signet, Coalition Relic, Thran Dynamo, Coldsteel Heart, Chrome Mox, Chromatic Lantern, Commander's Sphere, Cultivator's Caravan, Manalith, Star Compass, Doubling Cube
Creatures;Sunblast Angel kills all your opponents creatures and is a nice flyer, Pristine Angel Can only be dealt damage by non-artifact colorless creatures aka eldrazi while untapped. If you give her vigilance she can't be blocked either. Color protection is Really really good. Mother of Runes you can use her color protection to counter removal spells on your creatures one per turn. Eight-and-a-Half-Tails more protection!, Blinding Angel if they can't attack you..., Angelic Skirmisher super effective for all your creatures to choose Each combat lifelink, vigilance, first strike. Giving all your creatures lifelink is definitely something. Iroas, God of Victory he's low mana cost & exceptional, Oketra the True, Steel Hellkite super utility removal. Duplicant Also exceptional removal of even indestructible things, which it seems you like with your current removal. Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs great with gisela, I see you like stuffy doll and boros reckoner how aboutCoalhauler Swine, Mogg Maniac, and Spitemare. They work Really well with damage doublers. When they pull out all the stops and attack you fora lethal 20+ damage, Selfless Squire and you get a 21+/21+ creature to attack past their tapped creatures on your turn.
If you like Deflecting Palm I'd like to recommend Ride Down, & Boros Fury-Shield. Pyrohemia is incredible with Gisela, as long as she is out and you only activate one at a time all damage is prevented to you and doubled to your opponents and their creatures. For stuffy doll and reckoner definitely enchant them with Pariah so when ever you are attacked that damage goes to your opponents instead!
Anyway sorry for the novel. I'm sure I gave you too much but hey it's better than too little eh?

@Mal_Mutation: The Coalhauler Swine was one of the cards that started this combo deck, so it's really more of a pet card of mine. Might not be in there for ever if I have to make this deck more resilient.
@squirlfood: Thank you! Shaman en-Kor is a fantastic card I'll definitely include! To redirect any damage dealt to a creature gives you the chance to save other peoples creatures and play the political game that makes EDH so fun! Inquisitor's Flail is combat damage only though and I don't see a lot of that. Damage doublers like Furnace of Rath a quite the double edged sword. If I have proper protection it's all good, but if not they make you a target in order to remove the card.
@PurePazaak: Hell yeah, that would be amazing. If they ever print an suitable general in RWG Ruric Thar, the Unbowed is the first card to go into the deck! Too bad we just got a Naya general that doesn't help this deck...
@LeoSushi: I see your point very nice combo, but I really try to avoid combat as much as possible with this deck and so far it has been a good strategy! Scroll Rack will find a place in there, just not sure yet where.
Thank you all for the suggestions!
