ticked-off-squirrel Second that, its difficult to find these cards and finding one that only hits opponents is nearly impossible ha
Daedalus19876 This like any red deck has a card advantage problem and loses steam. So Ghirapur Orrery and Avaricious Dragon were added to let me dump my hand each turn. I have not considered Gemstone Array but I am now! Storing that extra mana sounds great.
D1beast I cant add the Braid. That only works on upkeep and drains right away. Dont have enough instants or creatures that would be able to use it. mastermew Does that make sense? Only works during the upkeep?

The colorless mana isn't an issue since you can throw Gemstone Array into the deck if you plan to abuse this combo.

I'm not gonna lie, I really want to build this deck.
Also, Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep is strictly better than a mountain (and actually helpful here).

You obviously have more money to toss around than my list does. It looks good, but here's a suggestion: you can also aim for infinite colorless mana, push that mana into any one of many "draw X" cards (such as Stroke of Genius or Pull from Tomorrow), and cast a filter (such as Gemstone Array, for which I would cut Doubling Cube). The Ashnod's Altar/Skullclamp combo works to this end as well.

You have Reiterate in your deck already, so Mana Geyser should be an auto include. If there are 7 or more opponent's lands tapped, it's an infinite red mana / storm count combo for 5 mana and tapping two creatures.
I also noticed you took out Firecat Blitz the same time you put in Mana Echoes. You might wanna play test the two together. It's a fairly effective way to produce a crazy amount of mana. Although Goblin Offensive does the same thing pretty much so it's whatever.
Crop Rotation is super powerful and should be seriously considered. You might also want to look into Tempt with Discovery, which can also be absolutely bonkers when copied with Wort and multiple ways to copy Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle... (think Thespian's Stage and Vesuva!!)
