How about Gisela, Blade of Goldnight to be an alternative win condition and to make your spells even more devastating? Heartless Hidetsugu weakens your opponents and have a beautiful synergy with Neheb, the Eternal.Mind's Eye is also a great tool for card advantage and Boros really need it.

Hey, I think you could find room for Caged Sun, maybe in place of Chandra, Roaring Flame

Heartless Hidetsugu, Chandra's Ignition, Earthquake, Banefire, Primal Amulet  Flip seem strong too.

RedPlaneswalker Heartless Hidetsugu is a must have in a Neheb deck, but for some reason I dislike the card for this deck. There is a chance that I am being overly stubborn [obsessed with dragons], which is why I have decided to make a winmore Neheb deck. I find Heartless much like Quietus Spike the card just seems too good. Any doubler and that is one opponent down, if I have an x spell in hand with Neheb out that is another, a copy card and that is all in one. I like to have a board state, a few answers and a fun game.

The first thing I looked for was Heartless Hidetsugu. I'm glad he's there. :)

Rolling Earthquake is good too but a little expensive to purchase. It would be a good alternate to Comet Storm, except it hits you as well. But you're Red! Red doesn't care about life totals!

If you're running into Comet Storm being countered and such I'd recommend Anarchist and/or Goblin Dark-Dwellers.

I notice you have Reforge the Soul. Do you not like Wheel of Fortune and/or Wheel of Fate? Fateful Showdown and Browbeat are interesting too.

Thanks for the upvote on Purphoros!

Loved seeing this on Game Knights. Neheb is my favorite deck and wish we could've seen it go off on camera.

What are the fetches in here for? I thought deck thinning math didn't really work in commander.

Are they to make sure you don't die to your own damage doubler/Heartless Hidetsugu?

There's a Heartless Hidetsugu deck in my playgroup and it's always funny when it goes up against Neheb.

ay.lobo I used to run Shivan Harvest and surprisingly it was really slow. Also if you didn't have either the mana or tokens to use its ability it was a dead card.

Regarding Heartless Hidetsugu, yeah its a five mana card that can halve peoples life but it needs haste and i don't have any haste enablers. Also if you don't draw him early it gets worse.

I was wondering what do you think about Quest for Pure Flame?. Its cheap,easy to trigger, you loose the devotion, its a threat that people must deal with or you will deal a lot of damage in 1 turn and i like it more than Furnace of Rath.I know its a 1 turn only but doubling your damage for 1 turn can be really good imo.
