Does the card have to be a commander or can the card be something you want to see an EDH deck built around? Like for example could it be Manabarbs amd the next person needs to build a deck that gets the best out of that card?
You will see people posting their existimg commander decks when they see one of their legends is requested

@GabeCubed & @filthyc4sual R/G Taxes seems like it could be a thing. Getting a Manabarbs online on turn 3 seems really good. Might be able to include more copies of it if I can reliably cast it on turn 3. I'll throw a R/G version of the deck together and test it compared to my Mono-Red version. Simian Spirit Guide, Birds of Paradise, Arbor Elf + Stomping Ground + cards like Overgrowth would be good ramp sources.
@landofMordor Harsh Mentor is actually going to make the sideboard. Would be good against decks like affinity i think.

I've been watching a lot of pleasantkenobi lately, and last night i had an idea. Is it possible to have mono-red taxes? I did a quick search of attrition cards that are mono-red, and found a surprising amount of them.
The first card that came to mind when i started searching was Manabarbs . After it hits the table, if no damage was done until then its a 20 mana limit on the game. and in modern people run shock lands, fetch lands, and other cards that sacrifice life for effects.
The next attrition strat would be land destruction. With that search I found some pretty cool cards. Stoneshaker Shaman , Akki Blizzard-Herder , Avalanche Riders, Crack the Earth ?, and Thoughts of Ruin were the ones i liked. ( Stoneshaker Shaman + Manabarbs is sick BTW.)
Lastly, card draw. Unfortunately the only card i found that could punish for card draw that could be played in mono red was Spiteful Visions .
I'm rather new to modern, so i don't know the format that well. Just throwing these cards together in a deck with 4 Lightning Bolts wouldn't work, so I'm asking for some advice. Thanks!!

Taking out Lightning Crafter and Thornbite Staff for now. This removes all of the infinites that are possible with the deck, but I never had fun doing those anyway, and they were definitely win-more cards with the way the rest of the deck is balanced. These, along with Mana Web/Stranglehold/Manabarbs, may make it back in for FNM outside of my regular playgroup.
This opened up slots for the fantastic Curse of Opulence and Kindred Charge from C17. The curse will fill the ramp spot that removing Treasonous Ogre made (without any negatives!), and Kindred Charge is just straight up stupid in any red tribal deck.
Still looking for a slot for Disrupt Decorum. Not only is it a really strong card, but it also fits this deck's playstyle very well.
I want to playtest Surveyor's Scope. The exile aspect is rough, but since I can all but guarantee that I can have less land that the other players, this is basically "free" goblins and landfall triggers for Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle. Put it on the stack and then crack a fetch in response and you are already at -1. In my regular playgroup this is good for 3-5 basic lands. You can use Rings of Brighthearth on it as well, so that helps.
I need a little more protection for the more important creatures, so getting a Swiftfoot Boots in to backup the Lightning Greaves is probably my best option in MonoRed. Not sure what to cut for it though.
As always, if you have any suggestions or criticisms, start screaming them at me!

Some very expensive card choices. How I wish I had those cards.
Also, playing Manabarbs with so much life gain seems a great idea.
Here is my work-in-progress: Edgar Markov Tokens. Comments are most welcomed.

A fun thing to run with cards like Comet Storm is Mana Geyser. Combine that with the extra mana you get from Neheb and you can wipe the table off the map in one go sometimes. For even more fun, add an effect like Fork or Reverberate. I saw it mentioned above, so I was wondering why there aren't any extra combat cards. Things like Aggravated Assault and Relentless Assault could get you some crazy amounts of mana. Another thing to consider would be Burning Earth - a (slightly) more situational Manabarbs since it only happens when non-basic lands are used, but there are a lot of those in EDH and not that many in your deck!

I dont think ive seen a background on mobile before. Do you have an example so I can steal the code?
Also, saw a goofy ass deck on EDHREC. It abuses cards like Chronatog to skip your turn so triggers happen on everyone else's turn but not yours.
Thought this was hilarious and I might make take a swing at something similar.

Hey thanks for the comments. I've been playing this boros deck quite awhile too, and have actually played all of those cards at one point except Manabarbs. True conviction is too pricey for its effect, double strike is awesome but I don't usually have a giant army and lifelink is not that important. I'm considering Duelist's Heritage to go along with my other double strike cards, plus you can use it to buff another players creature not attacking you.
I also didn't like the other damage doublers because of their 3 red colored mana costs (none of cards in the deck have 3 mana symbols of the same type). Too many times dead in hand. I have considered re-adding Dictate of the Twin Gods mostly because of its flash capabilities and easier cost. What would you replace to make room?
Manabarbs is an interesting choice and not one I have much considered, I'm wondering if Price of Progress would be more effective in a similar slot. Maybe Eidolon of the Great Revel could be even more effective.
