As an additional cost to play Fling, sacrifice a creature.
Fling deals damage equal to the sacrificed creature's power to target creature or player.

That's hard to say, a lot of the cards are good, what I would do, get rid of Fling , Jarad is basically a better version of that, which you can keep casting, and instead of hitting one creature or player with Fling, just hit all of your opponents with Jarad's ability, its just a great combo with Kresh to have Jarad, because litterally, in one turn you could end the game just by drawing Jarad at any given time and having Kresh on the field, especially if you plan to be aggressive with him. Jarad would add to your devotion for 2 of your gods too, if you had thought about activating them as creatures, always good back up.
Draw card. Plus it makes the squids from Chasm Skulker unblockable.
I have a U/R Chasm Skulker deck as well. I found a great combo with him to be Brainstorm and Reforge the Soul + Fling . Brainstorm ensures you pay Reforge the Soul 's miracle cost and then you Fling your now 11/11 or 12/12 Chasm Skulker and follow it up by swinging with the squid babies.
Thanks for the suggestion. I don't like luck based things so Molten Birth is off the table, but otherwise I like Altar's Reap and Viscera Seer . As for Fling I have thought about replacing bone splinters with it but I so far have preferred that one less mana cost. Slave of Bolas seems like no more than an Act of Treason and a sac effect without the bonus for saccing (correct me if i'm wrong) and I wanted Krenko's Command in the deck but I just didn't have any room for it (a suggestion about what to remove to put it in might help :)).
+1 for Monaco reference.
Molten Birth or Altar's Reap or Blood Bairn or Viscera Seer or Fling . also Slave of Bolas . it's possible to make goblins a subtheme, just get something like Dragon Fodder and Krenko's Command and some kind of lord.
there are other options for stealing creatures that might be better Traitorous Instinct etc.
Glaring Spotlight might be useful against hexproof.
no problem :)
and as to Iroas, God of Victory , you are right, he is expensive, but he would be a creature when you needed him to be.
He gives himself 2 Devotion, so if you have, say, a Silverblade Paladin out and play a Spark Trooper , thats 7 devotion. Now you can attack with Iroas, AND a double striking, indestructible Spark Trooper . When the Trooper dies, Iroas goes back to being just an enchantment.
food for thought at least. Iroas will protect your guys from First Strike/Double Strike and prevent them from dying to any combat tricks before they're able to do their damage even if he's not a creature, so he'd still be pretty good. That and 7 damage off of Fling ing him is nothing to sneeze at.
I would say EDH decks definitely reflect their owners, but sometimes they only reflect a part rather than a whole. For instance in the case of myself, I mainly prefer playing with less or without creatures and slower paced decks, so I run Blue as one of my colors in all of my decks, but in combination with other colors (since I don't like mono colored decks).
But no matter what, EDH decks are a reflection of a player's imagination and understanding of the game.
With so many cards available it's interesting to see how many different card synergies and combos can be found by different players.
Here are some ideas I have for you, my general logic is that since you don't like Aggro, you should deviate towards Blue since it's much slower than red and less creature centric:
Grand Arbiter Augustin IV - Mill, use White's creatures and Enchantments to help with board control while using Blue to Mill and supplement White (main idea). I believe there are a few Landfall cards that will fit in this deck quite wall. There are actually very few decks on TappedOut that use the Arbiter as a Commander, so you could potentially come up with something different or interesting with him.
Ulasht, the Hate Seed - Focused on multi-color creatures with counters, namely Hydras. Of course it'll require cards that allow you to ramp frequently and be able to double your mana pool (potentially several times). You can buff your creatures to ridiculous strengths with things like Berserk . Then combo off with Soulblast or Fling . The deck is both slow, less so aggro focused as much as getting huge creatures out and being able to utilize them with spells. To get an idea of what I mean, check out the "Berserker Rage" deck from this list: http://archive.wizards.com/Magic/Digital/Article.aspx?x=mtg/digital/d13/deckpacks
Oh and you can play the wonderful Chameleon Colossus in that deck which is one of your colors, and has protection from Black. :)
Funnily enough, or rather strangely, my main influence for my EDH decks comes from Standard.
Either way, good luck!
I was really confused by your response until I noticed the deck I linked was not mine but an exalted deck with the same name. Who'da thunk?
This is my deck (guess I'll have to change the name to avoid confusion): One Hitter Quitter
Mine used to have Brion Stoutarm in it but I ultimately took him out for the same reason I'll still recommend Grafted Wargear over your flails: He's a win more card. By the time you play him you're already winning, and if you're not he doesn't help you much. Doubling your damage is also ultimately "win more" as well. you'll get the same effect out of Boros Charm and Fling and you'll only ever need to use either effect once to win the game unless you're playing multiplayer.
Now that I think of it, Iroas, God of Victory would be great in this deck. Anything that protects your elementals from spot removal will help you. Iroas would be a fun creature, though, because he'd only ever be a creature while you're attacking anyway.
At least that's my 2 cents on the matter, ultimately it's your deck :)
