Flesh / Blood Discussion

Hey, WAYF4! Thanks for your comment. Flesh / Blood was already in my maybeboard and I used to play it in an earlier version of this deck. In my local meta the sorcery speed was a huge drawback, though. In the end I replaced it with Chandra's Ignition which has single-handedly won me several games out of nowhere by taking out the whole table at once.
My Kresh EDH is my Timmy deck. I really want it to be playing big, flashy creatures. It doesn't need to win every game, but if it's winning then it does so by totally crushing my opponents. :-)
With that said, I am actually thinking about taking out one or two of Kreshs big friends and replacing it with a mana doubler like Mana Reflection. From the 3 big guys you mentioned Bloodshot Cyclops seems like the most possible cut to me because I still have Chandra's Ignition, Soul's Fire and Fling that do the same. The others fulfill important roles as removal spells. I don't know if the sac-removal creatures you mentioned really fit into this deck because I don't play tokens and all of them make me sacrifice one of my own creatures, too.

This seems like a super fun deck to play, honestly. But I can definitely see where some of the creatures are too expensive. You might want to trade some of the big-impact 7/8 mana creatures like Terastodon, Woodfall Primus, Bloodshot Cyclops and Bloodfire Colossus for less-impactful but more immediately-available cards. Like the trifecta of sac-removal creatures: Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner and Slum Reaper.(Highly approve of Flesh / Blood, incidentally. Include it if you can, it's won me multiple games.)

Flesh / Blood is in playable colors, gets around blockers, works with the commander, and can get you double value out of your buffs.

I really like it, but don't forget to balance out your basic lands (bias them towards green, then black, then white, with blue having the least). Also, Flesh / Blood is not legal in this deck because it's color identity is Red/Black/Green; every mana symbol on the card (except in italicized text) adds to that, even if it's a Split or Fuse card.
You might want to also try some mana acceleration or fixing, like Evolving Wilds, Sol Ring, Wayfarer's Bauble, Seal of the Guildpact (choosing Green and Black since your deck has more of those cards). Nonbasic lands would also be good, and budget options like Blossoming Sands, Simic Guildgate, and Azorius Chancery represent the two-color options you might want to use, or cards like Sultai Banner, Orzhov Signet, and Chromatic Lantern if you don't want to switch to a lot of nonbasic lands. Prismatic Geoscope is also amazing if you run a lot of basic lands too.

Neat build. You took yidris in a completely different direction than me lol
How do the ravnica block instant/sorceries work with cascade? If you only cast the blood section of Flesh / Blood; does it cascade off of the total cmc of 7? I realize that's what their true cmc is - both sides added together - so it would be a sweet loophole to get bigger cascade triggers
+1 from me! Please swing by my deck and tell me what you think! (LINK) It might give you some ideas. Cheers!

Attrition is a sac outlet and removal engine.
Greater Good is a free sac outlet and draw engine.
Goblin Bombardment is ANOTHER free sac outlet.
