Thanks for the comments. I've replaced some of the cards you listed to cut (Archetype of Endurance, Springleaf Drum, Izzet Staticaster, etc.) and I added some ramp (Gruul Cluestone, Simic Cluestone). I also plan on adding Deadeye Navigator as soon as I get a copy.

As for replacing Fireball, can you list some of the better X-costed burn spells that you mentioned?

Well i know some of the these aren't shamans but they do what you are trying to accomplish Goblin Sharpshooter, Thermo-Alchemist and maybe some dump spells like Fireball, Bonfire of the Damned and Banefire. As for cuts I would say maybe cut some of the creatures you think should not be in here if you cant think of any maybe something like your Hostility I get that you are trying to make Elementals with it but it just seems so counter productive. Especially since there are many other better ways to make tokens though they are not in theme so yeah thats my piece.

Did you think about Fireball ? With infinite mana combo you can do instakill in multiple players.

I did indeed consider Banefire. However, I decided on Fireball for two reasons. First, it is versatile, as I can split the damage. Second, I am perfectly ok with my Fireball being counterable. My opponent will usually not be able to counter it because they will have no cards in hand. If they have cards in hand, I will cast a discard spell before casting a Fireball. If they counter it, I still achieved my goal of keeping their hand empty and also now they are short one counter for my fireball ;3 So I am fairly strong against countermagic.

What do you think of Nether Spirit as a finisher?

Jar of Eyeballs only needs, on average, 20 things to die and you can tutor anything and kill the table (Fireball works even). It's win-more when you have a finisher in hand but it's Demonic Tutor if you don't.

It can also stack your deck to put finishers on the top if you get countered.

It can also tutor out stuff like Pyroblast to protect the finisher.

freakingShane, my friend, I still don't have a fixed theme hahaha. I just chose my other 9 remaining commanders. I want dragons or something fun for Gruul. I will throw creatures, some support & combat tricks, and maybe a drop of burn like Fireball and Breath of Darigaaz.

I'm checking guides and primers at the moment, for this and the other 8... so a finished product might take a while. Also, I'm very tempted to buy my finished decks, so I have to pace my$elf or face bankruptcy hahah

And yes, Jugan is a good idea, but I'll see if it synergises with other things... Counters Of Tarkir might be a useful edition altogether.

Scratch that, to kill the Mold Demon, you just need a big enough Fireball.
