Fire Diamond Discussion

Definitely Fire Diamond, Great Furnace and Mirage Mirror. CITP tap artifacts are super slow, and I was just finding anything at that point, so that will be a strict upgrade. Artifact Lands are fine, but have an extra vulnerability to artifact hate, so that's a pretty easy sub.
Mirage Mirror is just a fun card, but it's nothing super special, and if you're opting for Mana Acceleration at this point, then it's probably first to go.

I would also run Sol Ring, Boros Signet, Fire Diamond, Marble Diamond, Mind Stone, Wayfarer's Bauble, Coldsteel Heart, and Worn Powerstone. 4-8 ramp cards is basically mandatory. It's a shame, because it takes away from deck character and adds to deck homogeneity but that's the format. If you include extra ramp you can save card slots by dropping a few lands. 38 is considered the sweet-spot for lands but I like 36. Elf decks can go as low as 30 lands so play it by ear.
Wanderer's Twig, Armillary Sphere, and Hedron Archive are nice. Knight of the White Orchid is nice but a total flavor-fail. Temple of the False God is good but you kind of have to treat it more like a ramp card than a land card.
Sword of the Animist would be somewhat flavorful while ramping.

Is there a reason you're not including Sol Ring? You might want some more cheap ramp to get Neheb out faster like the aforementioned Sol Ring, Fire Diamond, Coldsteel Heart, Mind Stone. Cryptolith Rite is a good mana rock that generates several mana with Neheb on board. Maybe some ramp creatures might even be good, since they can swing to generate mana with Neheb as well. Some ok ones to consider are Millikin, Iron Myr, Captain Lannery Storm, and Hedron Crawler. Treasonous Ogre can give you lots of mana to work with.
You also seem to be a little light on card draw. Knollspine Dragon synergizes quite nicely with everything you're doing and draws lots of cards. Commune with Lava is another strong "draw" spell. You could also run some spell recursion as a form of draw. Past in Flames or Mizzix's Mastery are good for this purpose.

You could also try Titan Forge? Was and old dumb card i use to play in standard same with Conversion Chamber and Surge Node not sure if you would be interested? Also yeah sorry did not notice/understand what 2DH meant or read the description lol. But for the Plague Myr I always find 2 mana ramp in a colour that has a tough time ramping is always a welcome inclusion, but thats just my thoughts. Maybe even add Fellwar Stone, Fire Diamond, Shrine of Burning Rage (trust me its a threat) and Treasonous Ogre if you wanna try different ramp. BTW that Chaos Moon is a sick card ive never even heard of!

Hi! Saw your post on the forums, glad to see more Brion players out there.
In response to the forum post: in my personal experience Stalking Vengeance never did much for me. but with the choice between Insurrection or Aurelia, the Warleader, I'd cut the Warleader.
Now after having a look at your deck, I've got a few suggestions!
First off, you have a lot of high costed(6-8 mana) spells, but almost no ramp to speak of.
Boros Signet, Coldsteel Heart, Commander's Sphere, Fellwar Stone, Fire Diamond, Hedron Archive, Marble Diamond, and Mind Stone are all good options. Focus on the 2 mana ramps because that a) allows for a turn 3 Brion and b) doesn't slow you down as much in the late game.
Ramp is important, and so is card draw. Unfortunately, Boros sucks at both. Still, artifacts like Well of Lost Dreams and Skullclamp are great, so through in some more like Infiltration Lens and Mask of Memory. Solemn Simulacrum is great too, though price is an issue(Kor Cartographer is the budget version). The color red also provides you with wheel effects, you have a couple but Reforge the Soul would help you I think.
Now the boring stuff is out of the way. How about some big creatures?! Hamletback Goliath, Thunderblust, and Serra Avatar are some good sackable fatties, and give great value for your dollar! Sun Titan is some good recursion.
Now for some win conditions to bounce off ya: Phyrexian Processor! Here's what you need: 9 mana, at least 1 more life than your opponent, and Brion on the field. Play the processor, pay most of your life, make a X/X creature, sack it to Brion, kill your opponent and gain all the life back! Works great with damage/lifegain doublers.
Phyrexian Devourer! Here's how he works. Exile cards off your library until he hits seven and his ability triggers, then sack him with Brion in response to the trigger, then keep exileing cards in respone to that to get it's power up to more than your opponents, then all that resolves and kills someone. This can all happen turn 7 which is nice.
Cut suggestions. Whenever I'm cutting stuff I look at the top of my curve first and move down. How much are these 6, 7, 8 mana spells doing for you? I'd take a long look at the two Akromas and some of the other angels, Stalking Vengeance, and Ryusei, the Falling Star. Further down the curve I see Taj-Nar Swordsmith(not using him to full potential), Magus of the Disk(just use the disk) and Vesuva(replace with Clifftop Retreat).
Hopefully some of this helps! Check out my Brion deck for a reference!

I play-tested this a little against one of my own decks and here are my thoughts:
I made Feldon a while ago and it's a trap to load up on big CMCs expecting to cheat them out consistently. I'd suggest pruning them down for more guys like Fanatic of Mogis, token generators, or Mindclaw Shaman. While Feldon likes beaters it's the abusing of the ETBs (I think) he excels at. You already have Panharmonicon, abuse it!
You need more discard outlets, I'm counting 6, make it 10+. Feldon wants you to dig hard into the library. Fiery Confluence, Wheel of Fate, Rummaging Goblin, Burning Inquiry, Faithless Looting, Collective Defiance, Goblin Lore, Mad Prophet, etc.
More ramp. Mind Stone, Commander's Sphere, Hedron Archive, Fellwar Stone, Darksteel Ingot, Fire Diamond, etc. let you do more faster which Red needs to stay ahead of the other colors. Burnished Hart & Wild-Field Scarecrow are great for abusing too.
And please, and this is my opinion, break up your wall of text in the description. It hurts the eye and seems to ramble. Tell us concisely what you want to do, why you chose x card(s), and desire from us the viewers.
Hope something helps!

Great start for the deck! You have a great creature lineup but you might need to get a couple more rakdos enablers, like Seal of Fire. I would definitely cut Armillary Sphere because it doesn't ramp you at all. I would put in mana rocks like Charcoal Diamond andFire Diamond. If you need ideas on how to make it more consistent or faster, check out my decklist! http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/rakdos-lord-of-riots-competitive-2017/

Cards I would take out: Acolyte of the Inferno, Akrasan Squire, Akroan Sergeant, Alaborn Grenadier, Alaborn Veteran, Altac Bloodseeker, Alaborn Zealot, Fire Diamond, Pristine Talisman, Bandage, and Armistice. I will suggest more later on.
Then add some of the following: Bruna, the Fading Light, Sword of Feast and Famine, Enlightened Tutor, Sublime Archangel, Aggravated Assault, Loxodon Warhammer, Iroas, God of Victory, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Sun Titan, Master Warcraft, Assemble the Legion, Return to Dust, Aurelia's Fury, Frontline Medic, Solemn Simulacrum, World at War, Thran Dynamo, Darksteel Ingot, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Legion's Initiative, Angel of Glory's Rise, Mother of Runes, Legion Loyalist, Steelshaper's Gift, Commander's Sphere, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Emeria Shepherd, Knight of the White Orchid, Balefire Liege, Mirran Crusader, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Grand Abolisher, Angel of Serenity, Angel of the Dire Hour, Angelic Arbiter, Hanweir Garrison along with Hanweir Battlements, Angelic Overseer, Exquisite Archangel, Requiem Angel, Resolute Archangel, Hammer of Nazahn, Sword of the Animist,Sunforger, Swiftfoot Boots and or Lightning Greaves, and Boros Signet.
I realize this is a pretty hefty list, and so let me know if you need help finding a place for any of these in the deck and I will try my best later on when I have time.
