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

Coalhauler Swine Discussion

Great list! This looks like a fun deck to use. Have you considered using Earthquake to finish of the game? One tap of Heartless Hidetsugu followed up with Earthquake should be enough to finish everyone off assuming you have more life than them. It works nicely with Coalhauler Swine too.
Some damage doublers like Furnace of Wrath would also be nice.

Coalhauler Swine hurts you too, plus it has higher converted mana cost than all of your other creatures. I would switch it out for more reckoners or spitfires.

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.
