We're getting into the range of less-budgety things (assuming that's what you were going for) but Price of Glory, War's Toll, Crawlspace, Tangle Wire really slow opponents down.

Caged Sun and Doubling Cube if you want to win with big mana X spells. Also, Demonfire forces the damage through

Rite of the Raging Storm can help lower life totals.

Furnace of Rath, Dictate of the Twin Gods and Gratuitous Violence. I think these really help what you're trying to do here.

Tormenting Voice, Wild Guess, Cathartic Reunion, Staff of Nin, Loreseeker's Stone and Daretti, Scrap Savant. These are all card draw, and red generally needs all the help it can get. Bonus to Staff, Daretti and Stone for being repeatable. Plus, Staff pings. Daretti also does all the artifact goofiness, which generally gets you some value, even if you don't primarily use artifacts.

Divergent Transformations and Indomitable Creativity are spot removal that people won't hate you for, because it gives them something else.

Blasphemous Act is one of red's best sweepers. It always does work for me.

Journeyer's Kite is repeatable "ramp", and also, Deck Thinning is Deck Winning. Armillary Sphere can ramp you as well.

Isochron Scepter + Last Chance/Final Fortune + Sundial of the Infinite = Infinite turns

Chandra, the Firebrand and Pyromancer's Goggles copy instants and sorceries, which ties back into your "blow people out with X spells" subtheme. Mirari does this as well.

Cascading Cataracts and Darksteel Citadel are great in decks that destroy lands.

Mystifying Maze and Maze of Ith are good stall tactics for a creatureless deck. Glacial Chasm as well.

Nah, the real win is goddamn Solemnity + Glacial Chasm, making you invincible!

Can we take a moment to appreciate how broken Solemnity is in Legacy lands?

I'm not just talking about the fact that you can play Marit Lage (Dark Depths) right out of your hand, but the way it interacts with counters makes it so that cumulative upkeep doesn't recieve counters, but you still can pay it. And that means goddamn free Glacial Chasms.

Thank you for your thoughts, sonnet666. I definitely went a different route from a goblin tribal deck with Purphoros, God of the Forge. As it stands now, it focuses more on control and less on attacking, especially with cards like Glacial Chasm and Ensnaring Bridge. So far, so good.

I run my own Mina & Denn Deck, I run an Eldrazi subtheme. Easily my most fun deck. Some of my favorite cards for it that I think would fit in your deck are Glacial Chasm (your commander allows you to avoid upkeep costs if need be), Akoum Hellkite (it's a dragon!), Tireless Tracker and Horn of Greed for card draw, Avenger of Zendikar, and Ulvenwald Hydra.

Great cards that have helped me in my own HH build:

Faithless Looting and Geier Reach Sanitarium: Amazing at digging through the library for cards you need.

Koth of the Hammer, Vessel of Volatility and Seething Song: Their ramp abilities are amaaaaaazing in a pinch, and if you do somehow get Koth to his ultimate, you can play around with everyone's life total and get rid of small threats.


Expedition Map: To grab your useful lands, like Glacial Chasm, Hall of the Bandit Lord, etc.

+1 for a good deck.

I think I need to retool my Purphy deck. Dunno why it hasn't dawned on me to cut all my 6 cmc cards. Speed is key with Purphoros or those pesky control decks can do a number on you. I of course run more rocks and Glacial Chasm because it's funny. I also run more anti-control cards like Price of Glory due to bad experiences with Azami.

No Genesis Chamber? Norin likes to hide in there when he runs away. Even without Norin it's still good especially when paired with Panharmonicon and Purphoros (then again what DOESN'T work well with Panharmonicon?). Is that what, 12 damage per Norin flicker/creature cast with just those 3. Even more bonkers if that creature makes tokens on ETB.
