Wonderful deck - precociousapprentice thank you for putting in the time and effort into putting it all together and including such a detailed write-up.
I made a very similar version based on yours and have been playing it for a few months now.
A highlight was going 1v1 with a highly tuned Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder deck that was worth a small fortune. He played 4 or 5 permanents on turn one! It looked like he was going to run away with the game, but I hit him with Virtus the Veiled + Suspicious Bookcase. It still looked like he was going to run away with the game until I slowed him down with Kambal, Consul of Allocation. It still looked like he was one draw away from victory until I played Solemnity and Dark Depths and took the victory. My hands were sweaty at the end. We even drew a crowd of onlookers anxious to see who would win.
My advice for others interested in building this: Righteous Aura is a great budget substitute for Forcefield, imo. This has been mentioned before, but is buried in these comments. I've also gotten a lot of mileage out of Whispersilk Cloak, both for the shroud and unblockable.

Emergency comment in case you haven't discovered this interaction I found testing some of your new cards tonight: Delaying Shield + Mirage Mirror allows you to pay 2 to prevent all damage for the turn. You can make the mirror a shield, stack triggers so that the mirror shield gets the counters, then the mirror will go back to normal before your upkeep and the counters will never be removed. Great for those of us that can't afford Forcefield ;).

Thanks for the comments. I've made some changes in the last several months to slim it down and give myself more early plays, but this list doesn't reflect them yet. I've been slacking off with updating my decklists here and I'd be surprised if more than half of them were actually accurate at this point.
In terms of good early plays: based on the last couple times I've played it, I think the deck still needs some more work beyond what I've already done. The trick is finding creatures at that cost with either a meaningful immediate board impact or some quality that makes them difficult to get rid of. Red's options for gaining or regaining card advantage are limited, and it's critical for a deck to have those capabilities in multiplayer and/or longer games.

+1! Like the description and the name, kind of counter-intuitive. Do you think that No Mercy could fit, I originally thought it would be out of the budget, but then I saw Forcefield and that is $200+ 2nd Edition, or around $4495 otherwise.

SynergyBuild I can't really see why you would go "full retard" on me now? You can't deny that the cards in mention are resource denial, taxing and disruption effects, aka stax cards.
My prison cards are the most iconic prison effects there is, aka prison effects.
It's hard to comit fully to one of the two, since theres alot of build around when it comes to apure stax or prison cEDH deck. My decklist could arguably be pillow forting as well, but pillow forting would in my sense of the decktype be running No Mercy, Forcefield, Solitary Confinement and Fog effects, hindering people attacking you or making is super inefficient to the point of losing the exchange in every way.
Don't be stupid, have a grown up discussion instead of using invalid and nonsense arguments.

@Mokan Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs was the original commander of the deck!
It was originally conceived as a sort of pillowfort-then-explode deck with cards like Forcefield and Ensnaring Bridge, but I found in my playgroup that the Earthquakes often took care of my defence for me, provided I wasn't focused too hard by anyone.
Thanks for all your great suggestions!
