This deck looks like you're not feeding it enough . 4 color decks are tough, especially without the pricier duals. Exotic Orchard , Spectral Searchlight and Chromatic Lantern can all help with that though you'll probably want even more blue sources than that. The Searchlight also plays into the group hug theme.

Humble Defector is another card draw for opponents that will probably get abused right up until it is too late.

Have you considered running Humble Defector ? Humble Defector has a unique interaction with Feldon - if you make a token of Humble Defector and use its ability to draw cards, the token copy won't be sacrificed at the end of the turn since you can't sacrifice permanents you don't control. Not only does Humble Defector give you card advantage - something pretty rare in mono-red - but you can also play politics with your friends! It's a really fun card.

If you want to bring the deck cost down to fit something else, Mana Cache is a cheap, not-quite-as-good replacement for Mana Flare . I was actually surprised to see Mana Flare in your deck with your $$ target.

I really like Seizan, Perverter of Truth in group hug, but it's $$$.

Mass Hysteria is also one of my favorite group hug cards, but is similar in $$$.

Horn of Plenty is a cheap, common group hug include.

As for what you get remove, I like Humble Defector in 1v1, but not multiplayer. Depends on your meta. I'm not convinced Undying Evil is adding enough value with the rest of your deck. I love curses in group hug, but Curse of Vengeance is probably one you could go without.

maybe try Brand ? so you can basically steal their lands? you could put it on a Isochron Scepter and also use cards like Political Trickery and Shifting Borders . then you could use some mana rocks like Izzet Signet and Thought Vessel (and maybe Humble Defector aswell for card draw) then you could win with some kind of big spell or something I know this is not modern legal, but it would make a fun casual deck!

Who can guess MYYYYY favorite card????

Besides the obvious of course, my favorite card is Humble Defector . The flavor is awesome, but the POLITICS in EDH... magical.

It's a nice "classic" Zedruu you've built here :) Exspecially your description made it worth an upvote from me! As someone who's playing Zedruu without exceptions it's always nice to see someone building here on a different approach. While mine is built around being a nice person, offering a lot of political support (Have a look if you're interested: Zedruu, Enlightened Master ), etc. , yours is more evil while still staying true to the way of Zedruu <3

My suggestions: 1. Glacial Chasm as it is a great card on its own it is even more so when combined with Solemnity which you are allready running. 2. The Clever Impersonator can be everything you want it to be... something like a second Paradox Haze or Assemble the Legion might always be usefull... 3. The Humble Defector is a very usefull tool to forge alliances with your opponents. There's nothing that connects two players more than a shared Defector... <3 Always remember: Zedruu is love, Zedruu is life!
