Crackling Doom Discussion

Grand Abolisher is very nice, means Kaalia of the Vast can attack and play an A/D/D on your turn without interference. He is $6 though, so doesn't help your under $200 budget, but you have some room it looks like.
Karmic Guide is pretty cheap, has protection: and has recursion built-in, I really like her, she can be abused too if you choose. Could easily replace Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, he's too random, and can't get your graveyard.
Should also spend the $8 on Master of Cruelties. Instant kill-con.
Archfiend of Depravity is a reasonably good budget demon. Mortify is a good budget removal spell. Aegis Angel is a good budget angel, and protects Kaalia of the Vast. Bladewing the Risen is good budget recursion dragon. None are auto-includes though, but there's some stuff there they could replace.
Hellspark Elemental feels wrong, does he combo something? No synergy.
Battlefield Forge is a budget land that can get rid of some of the "ETB Tapped" lands your running.
Crackling Doom feels in the flavor of this deck because of the red spells you play. Thunderous Wrath is awesome to top deck, but sucks in the hand, can always just burn a player if drawn at a inconvenient time. Bogardan Hellkite also feels kind-of in this flavor too.
Flameblast Dragon won't work if he enters tapped and attacking, you'll have to wait until next turn to activate his ability.
I'm testing Demonlord Belzenlok, I think he's going to work out, I have a feeling.
Necropotence is $6 I believe, but can help with the draw issues.
Hopefully you find something useful here. Nice build. +1.

Also, i see that you want to keep it budget, and that a lot of your spells are 3 colored. So you should add 3x Nomad Outpost. Else, you wont be able to cast Crackling Doom or Mardu Ascendancy with easy.
Pillar of the Paruns may also be helpful.

Is this an EDH deck? Because they have 99 cards + Commander (100 in total) and you can't have cards with Mana symbols that aren't shown on your Commander.
In this case, Crackling Doom has but your Commander doesn't, therefore you can not play with C.Doom.

I'm not sure how many of those sorts of effects there are. I'm willing to bet not many...
Of course if you go with discard the list is unending. Thoughtseize effects are rather inconsequential in commander though. I would tend towards wheels instead or bigger discards. Reforge the Soul or Myojin of Night's Reach work well.
If you do go with some small discards consider Glasses of Urza so you can find the best opponent.

Typically, decks like this (look up Sun and Moon) also include Blood Moon and Koth of the Hammer. You probably also want wraths mainboard, like Damnation, Bontu's Last Reckoning, and your classic Day of Judgment, as well as the Anger of the Gods that you have in your board (as an elves player, it gets really hard to win game one when your opponent has wraths). In addition, Ensnaring Bridge can be useful for holding off attackers until you get your walkers online, and should be cheap with its reprinting in Masters 25. For your sideboard, I would recommend Surgical Extraction over Hide/Seek, as you already have enough spot artifact/enchantment hate for the first clause to be relevant. I also might play Crackling Doom, as its good against Bogles (for which your deck can't easily wrath enchantments well, and all of your removal is nullified) and in the mirror match, as they have to sac their biggest guy, so it protects against Nahiri's ultimate. Other than that, it depends a lot on what people play in your meta.

cards i would strongly consider
- Wrath of God
- Utter End
- Anguished Unmaking
- Harsh Mercy
- Swords to Plowshares
- Path to Exile
- Authority of the Consuls
- Blind Obedience
- Olivia Voldaren
- Olivia, Mobilized for War
- Forerunner of the Legion
- Legion Lieutenant
- Twilight Prophet
- Champion of Dusk
- Sanctum Seeker
- Bishop of Rebirth
- Sun Titan
- Kalastria Highborn
- Crackling Doom
- Orzhov Signet
- Rakdos Signet
- Boros Signet
- Gifted Aetherborn
- Path of Ancestry
- Unclaimed Territory
- Nomad Outpost
- Command Tower
- Isolated Chapel
- Clifftop Retreat
- Godless Shrine
- Sacred Foundry
- Vault of the Archangel
- Cavern of Souls (if you want to drop a bunch of money because fuck paul)
cards i would cut:
- any of the equipment, it feels like more of a swarm deck, which makes the equipment less worthwhile
- Licia, Sanguine Tribune, shes an ok card, but better as a voltron commander than in the 99 of a swarm deck.
- Mirri the Cursed seems weak to me
- Comeuppance and Delerium have way better and lower CMC options
- i would also cut down to 38 lands, frees up 4 card slots and, with Urza's Incubator and a 3.77 average CMC, i dont think mana will be that big an issue.
