So, a common theme I've seen is Explosive Revelation. I'm not sure that this does what you want. It's actually the opposite of Treasure Hunt because it only grabs nonland cards. Is this the effect you are going for?

Other cards to consider for your sideboard perhaps, Explosive Revelation (as a potential finisher if your hand runs dry), Swans of Bryn Argoll as a draw combo engine with Seismic Assault.

Additionally, I just remembered there was such a deck that cared about big creatures and their power - Cragganwick Cremator. An emrakul discarded to it is 15 damage, an Impervious Greatwurm is 16 damage. You can finish them off with a Lightning Bolt to the face.

Additionally, there are several other cards that care about the mana cost of something to deal damage - Erratic Explosion, Riddle of Lightning, Explosive Revelation that care for the CMC of the cards. Especially when you can stack something on top of your library like Thunderous Wrath. Seems like a cool way to care about big creatures.
