If you're looking for Cheap stax decks, I'd recommend Derevi, Empyrial Tactician over Narset personally, but I'll throw up a list here just in case.
- Dream Tides
- Frozen AEther
- Mana Vortex
- Mist of Stagnation
- Price of Glory
- Rising Waters
- War Tax
- War's Toll
- Web of Inertia
- Ward of Bones
- Mana Web
- Possessed Portal
- Torpor Orb
- Razia's Purification
Really, any card that screws with the landbase are good with commanders like Narset, and Zur. Anyway, Sorry for the long list, and good luck with your deck.

since everyone seems confused by the mana- and i feel that this deck could use some more red anyway- i would suggest something to close out games or lock the board more
my choice would be Pia's Revolution to reuse your artifacts or tax more, win-win!

Hey Darrell this is Austin. I haven't really gone through what should replace what but just a list of what to take out and to add in. The cards that are going on the add list should help speed the deck up and cards that should be taken out are either to slow or just not as good as other cards that are on the add list. Now it's your deck so you do what you want, but these cards should help out a lot. Alright here we go.

The most I could see for the legion is sideboard for control. Even then I like Manabarbs even more for that. Thanks though, Gemini.

Mogis was a consideration, but since I don't own him I thought I'd test the waters of a hate deck with the mono-colored commander I do own. Of the cards you mentioned, Bloodchief Ascension is the only one I have, because it combos infinitely with Mindcrank.
As I mentioned, the deck started as pure hate, but I'm trying to tune it into something that can synergize and hang around a bit and play more. If it turns into more failures, then back will come Manabarbs, Price of Progress, and the like.
If it continues to fail beyond that, I'll look into other hateful commanders such as Mogis.

Sounds to me like you're wanting more of a punisher deck. Mogis, God of Slaughter would give you access to black and other pain spells like Polluted Bonds, Painful Quandary, Bloodchief Ascension ect. Also offers more draw and more control.
Otherwise to really screw over control decks, Mono-red excels at mass land destruction. Couple that with "damned if you do, damned if you don't" type spells like Spellshock, Manabarbs. This will also work well with Mogis. Purphoros is built to be all in and fast. If Purphoros gets out early enough then control decks may have a rough time stopping him. Especially with Price of Glory, MLD, Stoneshaker Shaman and Citadel of Pain, ect.

Honestly, I don't play Purph to win. I made the deck initially as a suicide deck, as a response to the control-heavy multiplayer meta, to see how much damage I can do to as many people as possible. Getting crushed week after week (with decks I spent money on and made in good fun) turned me into a villain, and now I'm trying to tune the deck into something that can kick back at the control decks and maybe even sneak a win once in a while. I call this deck my "Joker" deck, because it simply wants to watch the world burn, and my meta needs a good criminal.
I've replaced pure hate cards like Heartless Hidetsugu, Spellshock and Manabarbs with more synergetic cards in hoping to make the deck gel a bit more, but this deck will always do what it can to hate on control decks, which is why I've always tried to keep Bearer of the Heavens in the list, simply to wreck the board if I feel like the combo decks are getting ready to commit. I've also got Humble Defector if I need to play politics.
