I'm thinking of running him in an Izzet deck that focuses on Burn and Draw.

Fling + a pumped up Chasm Skulker + Purphoros, God of the Forge is always a good time ;3

I love the Idea of drawing basically your whole library with Ad Nauseam and Phyrexian Unlife !!Maybe a Psychosis Crawler would be a nice creature. Playing it before you cast your Ad Nauseam would deal damage to each opponent equal to the number of cards in your library... Very effective in multiplayer rounds. Casting it Psychosis Crawler afterwards would allow you to Fling a really big guy in your opponents face. On the other hand... that would take you 12 mana to cast... without some rituals or Reliquary Tower you wont be able to do that.Another nice creature could be Laboratory Maniac for obvious reasons.

Nice deck, +1.

This theme is very similar to my modern decks Traitorous Act Of Unwilling Sacrifice and Disciples Of Slaughter. How about adding Barrage of Expendables , Infernal Plunge and Fling for additional sac options?

Would you mind taking a look at my Boros commander deck, A Kiss With A Fist Is Better Than None?

I don't know if Fling has been suggested, but with all the cheap pump, it may be a nice finisher.

The second ability with sacrificing a creature is very much a black ability, not a red one, so unless you change the cost to RB I don't feel like that ability would fit very well.

Actually, thinking about it, you might just need to reword it to be more like Fling . Sacrificing a creature to deal damage is fine, but loss of life is a black thing. Might seem small, but it can make a difference. Damage can be transferred to planeswalkers while loss of life can not, damage can also be prevented by some cards whereas life loss (usually) can't.

That ultimate isn't game ending at all, imo. There are plenty of decks that don't run many creatures. I think something more like "-7 Tibalt deals x damage to all creatures and players" would be more appropriate, with the x being whatever number you're most comfortable with. I think ~5 would work.

Fling or Soul's Fire with Malignus during combat with your general Buff...

It may be that I play too much red, but I'd keep 4x Fling in this deck to instantly remove the Dreadnought if somebody pops your Orb, so you don't have to sac it for nothing. Also "Pop your Orb" sounds amazingly rude, and therefore pretty funny to me.
If you are building a deck around Torpor Orb, look for some other cheapies like Lord of Tresserhorn , Eater of Days , Leveler or Sky Swallower . You should also look for something to use in case you can't draw the Orb (silly 4-of rule) like maybe Pithing Needle , which would work sometimes. And back to red, Pandemonium or, in a pinch Warstorm Surge would turn this into a burn deck. Dropping a Pandemonium, a Dreadnought and then Flinging it would be 24 direct spell damage from what is otherwise a beater deck. Good way around Holy Day and it's ilk, plus it would just be funny.
