Is Mark of Asylum only there to protect Firesong and Sunspeaker?If so, you might want to swap it out for an aura that gives indestructible - such as Indestructibility or Shielded by Faith.I really don't think it's worth having a creature protector for a deck with only 1 creature.Deck seems like a cool idea.I know it's supposed to be creatureless, but I have a really cool combo for winning:Neheb, the Eternal on the battlefield along with Heartless Hidetsugu and Doubling Cube. Tap Heartless Hidetsugu before combat, then you get red mana equal to the amount of damage all players took this turn - a lot. Double it withDoubling Cube, then cast Comet Storm, paying an extra 1 for each of your opponents and pour all of your mana into the lethal damage of the x cost in Comet Storm. YOU WIN!

Try Insult / Injury. You only need one turn to kill someone with Heartless Hidetsugu, and it is a lot cheaper mana-wise than your other doublers. It also makes sure that damage goes through to your opponents and cannot be prevented. Also, if youre really looking for doubling Hidetsugus damage, you could try Angrath's Marauders. Nice job so far, though.

In terms of dealing lots of damage to everyone, you could run a Heartless Hidetsugu and hope that you can get everyone low enough to burn to death before you get killed by their creatures. In terms of defensive cards, you could use Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs to discourage attacks against you, or Mogg Maniac or Boros Reckoner to chump block big creatures and get in some extra damage.

Do you need Hammer of Nazahn? You don't have enough equipment to make it worthwhile. If you're just looking for indestructible, you could do Darksteel Plate. Costs less to cast and equip, and is harder to remove.

I feel like Isochron Scepter + Paradox Engine and a mana rock would still be a good spell centric wincon. You could imprint it with stuff like Healing Salve or Dazzling Reflection. I like more fun stuff like either Blessed Alliance or good ol Lightning Helix for that dual color synergy. You can also untap Heartless Hidetsugu for some group pain when your'e ahead on life totals.

I like Guardian of the Gateless + Indestructibility if you're going to run the indestructible equips/aura's. Its a hoot with Pariah too.

Command Tower. Command Beacon for insurance. Opal Palace because nobody wants you to go off.

Last idea: Helm of the Host to make copies of your commander or guys like Boros Reckoner for multiple triggers...

Maybe adding stuff so you start your turn with some cost reduction right away:

  • Palace Siege: Choosing dragons can lower the cost a lot.
  • Subversion: Not as effective, but redundancy is excelent here.
  • Twilight Prophet: The problem is getting the city's blessing... after that this one works great.

Two other dudes that come into my mind:

Also, Havoc Festival doesn't give you lots of cost reduction, but it is a funny card to play in this kind of deck..

Running Oros the avanger as the commander but the point of the deck is to slap down stuff like Pyrohemia, [[pestilence] and maybe Withering Wisps if I add snow lands, along with Repercussions and such and just start to burn the board.

My old list just seemed a little all over the place so I think I want to cut back on the white a little bit, but keep it in for tutors and maybe some protection. I also want to cut back on the redundant abilitys like multiple copies of "players cant gain life" since life gains isnt a HUGE part of my meta, but its always a nice include.

This is my old list and right now im a little bit of a slump. I know I probably want something like Heartless Hidetsugu, Mogis, God of Slaughter because they can be pretty nice, not to mention that hidetsugu can combo well with either the doublers or Wound Reflection. Im not sure if I should put in Spitemare/Stuffy Doll but if Im doing board wide ticks of damage, they might not be bad (plus stuffy doll will make sure the "no creature" clause never triggers till it gets exiled)
