Inferno deals 6 damage to each creature and each player.
18 hours ago
Hey, cool deck! Some suggestions off the top of my head (most likely will come down to personal preference):
Inferno reckless and lots of damage
Rain of Embers cheap and effective
Aggravate interesting and different
Balefire Dragon 7cmc but can do work. Very one-sided
Pyromancer's Goggles for some added copying!
I realize you already have Furnace of Rath and Dictate of the Twin Gods but Gratuitous Violence seems like it would help you more instead of Quest for Pure Flame . Pure flame is cheaper cmc but I don’t see it being as effective.
Hope some of those help! +1

No problem austintayshus! It's a fun idea definitely! Let me know how your deck list turns out and feel free to ask for any help!

Gotcha. I would just go with sac outlets, then. Phyrexian Tower just went from like $60 to $10 because of the reprint. Infernal Offering , Recurring Nightmare , Rescue from the Underworld , Victimize , and Whisper, Blood Liturgist all offer recursion. Altar's Reap , Fling , Costly Plunder , Culling the Weak , Plunge into Darkness , Vicious Offering , Devour Flesh , Merciless Resolve , Sacrifice , Collateral Damage , Burnt Offering , Carrion , Fiery Conclusion , Spontaneous Combustion , and Dredge are all better instant-speed ways to leverage Xantcha. Or you could just Inferno or Starstorm to kill the board.

So I had played your list a few times prior to GRN and it didn't go as expected. I noticed a terrible lack of card advantage being an issue. Dawn of hope is the obvious addition for the deck, but I think also adding Treasure Map Flip and Sunset Pyramid will help a lot. Idyllic Tutor also seems like a good idea to get dawn of hope more consistently. Somethings ive been meaning to test out. I think I also want to see more big red board wipes. I personally am a fan of Inferno cause its both solid, and no one ever sees it coming.

First, I would like to say that you have done the Dragon Queen proud. I have some suggestions that you might find worthy of consideration. Inferno and Earthquake could be a worthy addition to this deck. Also Where Ancients Tread and Impact Tremors are worthy enchantments for any deck with creatures power 5 or more.
I hope these suggestions help!

let's say I have 4 opponents. I deal 6 damage to each of them in my first main phase, so in my second main phase I get 24 mana. That's a pretty good haul. So now I go to cast Fireball, hoping to kill all of my opponents with this one massive blaze. One is used for the red cost of fireball, I target an opponent, then spend to target my other three opponents. So X=20, and that gets divided evenly by 4, which is 5, so in the end I just spend 24 mana to deal 5 damage to each opponent. Compare to Flame Rift and Inferno, and fireball is laughably bad. Sure I could kill just one opponent, but that's not the point or the goal of the deck.
Hope that clears it up!
Low-key_loki Thanks for the upvote :)

Star of Extinction does sound super awesome with Furnace of Rath or something out and I do like the targeted land destruction. I'm not gonna write off Inferno yet because it's still my jam 20-something years later. I have killed people with it before.
I'll make space for it.

Megalomania thanks again! I'll have a look!
shiki1335 Thanks for the comment!
Obsidian Battle-Axe I like because it gives Neheb haste, extra power, and that 1 extra toughness that lets him survive stuff like Inferno and Bloodfire Colossus. Mask of Memory is good and I'll consider it.
I'll also consider Seething Song.
