Vial Smasher the Fierce would be a fun commander to play. His ability is random, which is fun and can deter some hate you might get from him, and his partner mechanic allows you to choose all kinds of different ways to go with him. Another card I see pop into Vial Smasher decks is Kaervek the Merciless . If you played him with Thrasios, Triton Hero , you get some nice card draw, and two great colors that ramp and draw cards. If you go with Akiri, Line-Slinger you can get some artifact themes going. Ravos, Soultender give some graveyard value. All kinds of ways to go.

Nice idea for a deck I'm trying to build myself. I'm personally focusing more on Rage Forger and some +1/+1 counter synergy. For this reason I would try Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Taurean Mauler .
And I'm not seeing one of the best Shamans out there: Kaervek the Merciless .

By the way good work, keep it on!

pdharr Child of Alara is just a placeholder for a commander. Kaervek the Merciless is one I considered, as well as Xantcha, Sleeper Agent .

It looks like you're using Rakdos in everything but your commander, if you flush out the deck with only rakdos cards in the end, Kaervek the Merciless might be a good commander instead. I only did a search for possible rakdos commanders and found one that might screw your enemies and set off your damage doubling. I am not as experienced as other people on the cite, but I think Kaervek the Merciless would better fit the deck.

vs Oloro, Ageless Ascetic + Prossh, Skyrider of Kher + Ezuri, Renegade Leader
Partita straordinariamente veloce. Oloro apparecchia con un po' di mestizie tipo Meekstone e Pendrell Mists .
La partita quindi rallenta subito finché non entra Jodah che spara Sunbird's Invocation e, il turno dopo, Conflux . Tutora Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Omniscience , Kaervek the Merciless , Progenitus e Archetype of Endurance .
Scende Omniscence senza che nessuno abbia risposte e la sinergia con l'invocazione gli fa giocare a suon di cast e cascade letteralmente tutto il mazzo tranne le terre.
Si sente il bisogno di qualcosa che dà rapidità perché Jodah passa e, prima che il turno gli torni, Oloro spara un Cyclonic Rift overloaded che gli rimanda in mano 50 carte.
Le terre però sono ancora lì e sono sufficienti ad appoggiare Omniscence e, di conseguenza, tutto il resto. E questa volta il tavolo non ha risposte.
