Mark for Death I think is a hidden gem for combat deck including red. As for Angel's, you have Subjugator Angel & Sunblast Angel that work well together, esp if you include a blink package. Angel of Condemnation can be used both offensively and defensively. Angel of Finality for gy hate, Brisella for shiggles, Angelic Arbiter to slow things down.

Neurok Stealthsuit : Can act as a counterspell for targeted removal.

Mark for Death : can be removal via forced blocking a large Thrax. Or if you can give Thrax trample, choose a dork or token.

Blasphemous Act : Another board wipe if things get out of hand.

I was trying to find an infinite mana loop for Aggravated Assault so you can just let Juggernaut gain momentum, wipe the board, and every player.

Teleportal, Magmatic Chasm, Falter, Mark for Death, Seismic Stomp, and Tectonic Rift all muddle up your opponent's non-fliers. All star Bedlam could make or break the game, a more one-sided option is Goblin War Drums, Raging River, and War Cadence.

Door of Destinies, Obelisk of Urd, Cover of Darkness, Metallic Mimic, and Vanquisher's Banner all help out your chosen creature type well.

Look into some shroud and hexproof options, as you won't be targeting your creatures with anything, so making sure they don't get removed is important.

Well the Giant is just an insurance policy. It isn't super great, but with stuff like Light of Sanction and X burn spells that hit everyone...not really a good card for you after I think about it more. Goblin War Cry let's them choose one creature to block with. It's like Mark for Death but they choose and it is the only creature that can block. It wouldn't be unhelpful, but might not fight your strategy.

... I am hahaha, Oh man. I have no idea why I read that card as player, but I am very glad I'm wrong! War's Toll is 100% going in xD

Goblin War Cry would be good if it forced the creature to block. As is, if I wanted that effect, I'd stick with Mark for Death.

Why the Pallisade Giant? Looks like a good limited card, but I can't imagine it being anything in EDH. I also tend to steer clear of auras in EDH, as they often two-for-one me. The only auras I usually consider are ones that provide protection from either wraths or targeted removal.

Oh yeah, I had forgotten about Mark for Death. I understand, that's the whole point of getting other ideas eh? What about, War's Toll?

Blaze of Glory was actually initially intended as a mana cheaper version of Mark for Death, but then I saw the pricetag and completely disregarded it. Blocking any number of creatures could be good, but tbh all the cards that enable it are pretty terrible. Guardian of the Gateless is probably the only one I'd even consider.
