Even though it was short I'm glad this article is here today. I've Ponder over the hunted cycle every time I pass one by. I just couldn't wrap my head around it. If it was good/bad or silly. Now I feel informed, but still cannot find the horror in my Hunted Lammasu. Hope you feel better.

A couple things: Hunted Lammasu is really bad, you don't want to give your opponent a 4/4. Your ramp could be improved, there's actually a pretty cheap way to get 4 mana on turn 2. Add in 2 more Arbor Elfs and take out the Explores for 4 Utopia Sprawl. Explore isn't that great a ramp spell and if you have 2 lands and one Arbor Elf and one Utopia Sprawl you can play your 5/5s on turn 2. Parallel Lives seems kinda slow to me, and a bit over the top. 8 ramps spells seems kinda slow to me. I would consider adding in Sakura-Tribe Elder in place of the Parallel Lives and Hunted Lammasu. I would also consider looking into cards with the Ferocious and Formidable mechanics since you activate them so easily.

I've made a deck based on that idea some time ago. Feel free to check:
SCORE: 17 | 10 COMMENTS | 18254 VIEWS | IN 16 FOLDERS
The idea is to use cards like: Trickbind, Sundial of the Infinite, Torpor Orb, Disallow, Voidslime and Hushwing Gryff to counter the EtB triggers and cast your massive creatures. There is also the option to use Fling and Rite of Consumption for cards that have upkeep triggers.
Currently this is the list of cheap big creatures with big drawbacks for modern:
Vexing Devil, Boldwyr Heavyweights, Cosmic Larva, Desecration Demon, Desecration Elemental, Dust Elemental, Eater of Days, Leveler, Hunted Phantasm, Hunted Horror, Hunted Troll, Hunted Wumpus, Hunted Dragon, Hunted Lammasu, Inverter of Truth, Nova Chaser, Phyrexian Soulgorger, Primeval Force, Sky Swallower.

I have a very similar deck that uses white in addition to red and black. White gives you access to damage-redirecting bull like Deflecting Palm, Harm's Way, Souls of the Faultless and Wall of Essence among other things. Hunted Lammasu is another way to force a creature onto your opponent, which can be a problem if they don't have any creatures of their own and/or you can't find Sleeper Agent.

Not only can they help, they can also hinder. If you attack Player B, who has a Runeclaw Bear to block with, Player C could cast Doom Blade on the bear before blockers are declared, then player D could cast Scout's Warning followed by Hunted Lammasu targeting Player B to replace the blocker.

RoarMaster $2.50 isn't killer but I never want to spend more than I have to and I thought there might be something cheaper than Genesis Chamber. Those Hunted Cards look pretty awesome, but my deck is black and white, and Hunted Horror is expensive and Hunted Lammasu isn't really worth it for me, generating only one token. I might look into making a different deck around those cards in the future, though.

Thanks for the suggestions, MartialArt.
I'm pretty sure I'll be adding Jace Beleren. I actually got one for this deck from a Puca member, but it was so heavily played, I ended up giving it away, and haven't gotten another yet. I think I'll replace Well of Knowledge, which has never worked as well as I envisioned. I'm giving out so much card-draw for free, that people balk at having to pay 2 mana for it.
Hunted Troll and Hunted Lammasu are cards that give a one time benefit to only one other player. As I mentioned before, I don't want to control the game in that kind of way. I try to get cards that benefit everyone evenly, or at at the very least are reusable like Wall of Shards or Sheltering Ancient, so I can spread the love around over several turns.
I want to take a second to say that all of the suggestions, from all you guys, are excellent. To anyone contemplating putting one of these group-hug decks together, consider incorporating any number of these suggestions in your deck to fit your personality and play style.
