Considering some more red options. The following kinda stood out to me:
It occurs to me that kiki might make Helm of the Host much more attractive to me for this deck. It has never been a bad idea, I just tend to bounce Mairsil a lot.

Were you not able to ever transform the two werewolf eldrazi?
For draw power, I'd add a Overwhelming Instinct and an Ulvenwald Mysteries and a Skullclamp. This way when someone wipes your field, you get a bunch of treasure tokens, sac them, draw and get 1/1's and then sac those to skullclamp to draw more.
Overwhelming Instinct helps with swinging wide. I personally haven't gotten a ton of use out of it, but it's a consideration for draw.
I'd try to put the two eldrazi wolves back in because they can get you mana and they're decent sized werewolves. I'd sub them out for Shefet Monitor and Hammer Mage . I'd also throw in a Return to Nature and a Vandalblast for enchantment and artifact removal

Rogue_Toaster I'm not sure how many of them are really worth it but I've been eyeballing a few for awhile. In theory they are pretty nice since you just cage whatever is discarded. I like Hammer Mage and Alexi, Zephyr Mage. Even Urborg Syphon-Mage and Dreamscape Artist might be decent.
There could be some other nice ones like Stronghold Machinist that you mentioned.
I am more interested in adding additional "card advantage". Something like Stitcher Geralf would likely be a better inclusion than most spellshapers since you have the potential to get into more cage targets faster.
The discard part of their cost is neither advantageous nor disadvantageous as long as you discard something that could be caged.

- Dosan the Falling Leaf - prevents casting on other player's turns
- Gaea's Herald - creatures can't be countered
- Leyline of Lifeforce - creature's can't be countered
- Price of Glory - destroy all lands tapped on other player's turns
- War's Toll - inhibits control strategies
- Choke - islands don't untap
- Autumn's Veil - practically protection from blue and black for one turn for all creatures
- Hammer Mage - artifact boardwipe every turn
- Viashino Heretic - targeted artifact removal every turn
- Molder Slug - hurts them more than it hurts you
- Vandalblast - a staple and for good reason
- Wave of Vitriol - kills all artifacts, and enchantments for good measure. Also ramps mana
- Arbor Colossus - large body with reach that can kill a flier

Well of Knowledge if you pay a fee we will grant you a bonus card for your draw step
Avenger en-Dal once per turn and only during combat but we got a machine gun of exile attackers
Spiritual Asylum let's buy some time to get ready for battle shall we
Kill Switch holy crud the breya ramp is getting to fast ...HIT THE EMEGENCY STOP QUICK!!!
Detritivore delicious nonbasic land removal that's untouchable and the chances of targets being on the field same odds of finding a cow on a field near a farm
Mana Maze oh that's evil star especially since I'm using it in eldrazi decks with devoid cards wich is a loop hole around this.
Hammer Mage a driver for the street sweeper of artifact cards in play
Volcanic Wind hmmmm only six to do easily atleast 20+ damage to creatures and sweep...amazing
Once a upon a time someone just cast Wrath of God esc card then all the sudden I play Natural Affinity then after resolve I cast Eerie Interlude or Teferi's Protection and either resolve every one surrenders and possible a table flip happens because now it sweeps the lands and creatures excepts mine the end.
Soulquake a board sweep and group hug at the same time sweet
Sages of the Anima and this isn't a Animar staple because?
Fight to the Death hey I also played a all creatures are forced to block a particular creature escape card earlier board sweep for one player
Balancing Act is that what I... IT IS!!!
A LOOP HOLE OF PLAYING Balance !!!
Teferi's Protection your board then they have to sacrifice all the permanents
Well hope you like my stuff might have more in the future

I built Hazoret yesterday, and here's my thoughts:
You need a special balance between card draw (to have fuel for Hazoret's ability) and getting her online.
And, for bonus points, Squee, Goblin Nabob. He needs no introduction.
