There is also Hedron Crawler as somebody mentioned. I feel i'm not original at all talking about sustitutions of the freaking Millikin xd you could consider keeping it and sustitute some of your 3cmc ramp dudes to lower your curve a bit, or to have more ramp in turn 2 instad of turn 3 c:

There is a myr that enters the battlefield for 2 mana and adds red mana to your mana pool and you aren't running it, wouldn't it be better than Millikin? xd i feel after watching your video that you love to hate that card :P but yeah, Iron Myr (just remembered the name) is probably a strictly better option :P

I've been looking at building an Ishkana deck, too. I was looking at mine from more of an online place, budget-wise, but I checked out the differences between our decks, and I think there are quite a few budget cards that would help: Tree of Tales and Vault of Whispers both net two types when milled. Vessel of Nascency was a standard in Standard Delirium, since it immediately puts and enchantment in your graveyard. Syphon Mind and Harmonize are both great value cards. Millikin is a great fit in Ishkanah decks, since it can ramp, chump to put two types in the graveyard, and mill, all on its own. Commander's Sphere is the same. It can ramp you from 4 to 5 mana and cycle to fuel delirium as early as turn 4. Foul Renewal should be pretty powerful in this deck, and I had Sight of the Scalelords and Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper for the same toughness reasons. Finally, the piece of tech I'm proudest of is Champion of Stray Souls. If you're already milling creatures into your graveyard, then sacking 3 1/2 spider tokens for 3 real creatures is fantastic, especially since you can let Ishkanah go to the graveyard be be re-risen with fresh tokens. If you move away from budget options, I also think Buried Alive is a good choice. Choosing Arachnoid, nyxweaver, and a fattie, you get Delirium and a reanimation target. I also included a land tutor package. Here's my full list: Spiders.

Hello fellow Zada player!
I like your list a lot! I've been playing with my Zada deck for a year now and I found a couple of pieces in your deck that I like a lot.
Here is a list of cards for you to consider:
- Mana dorks: Manakin & Millikin
- Rituals: Mana Geyser (goes infinite with Reiterate)
- Pyromancer's Goggles (a bit mana expensive but AMAZING)
- Excellent token producers: Tempt with Vengeance & Firecat Blitz
- Additional ways to get around the pillow forts: Purphoros, God of the Forge & Goblin Bombardment
- Secret tech: Fiery Gambit (It targets a creature with the second clause, so you can exploit it with Zada. Also you don't have to kill Zada, since you can keep flipping coins until you get tails when you resolve her trigger)
I don't have an updated list online but I will link it here when I update it!
Happy new year! :)

so im not sure i want this, but if i did, are Iron Myr and Heap Doll things I should consider? Manakin or Millikin. Wait. I actually really like Millikin. And all this time I was wasting my time with Sphere of the Suns as my 2-drop ramp spell. I already run Myr Sire so I don't need them, but I think I've convinced myself. Wait. What about Phyrexian Revoker? Plague Myr? Runed Servitor? Toymaker? Now i have a whole new question...

Ditch Millikin and put in a Shield Sphere! Gotta love zero drops and he has a back end on him! Arcum Dagsson eats him up too! I like to draw for Golem Artisan with + + and make every thing infinitely large AND have hast trample and flying. With Myr Turbine and making infinite tokens you can kill the whole table with nothing. Heck I have killed people off with Shield Sphere because of Golem Artisan. Check out my Arcum Dagsson bulid in the making: Arcum Dagsson: A Love Story

I'm not familiar enough with the deck to know if you want more of these effects, but they are options.

On to real suggestions, I think Flare is a decent cut, and I've come to not like Temple of the False God. Getting stuck on lands is still a huge pain though, so replacing it with a mountain, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle or Sandstone Needle could do some good work. Kuldotha Rebirth looks like a good cut as well, but I would consider the additions/changes that I'm suggesting before you pull the trigger on that. Mind Stone should be included in my opinion, and a possible Guardian Idol and Fire Diamond. Though artifact mana (especially the idol and diamond) can be clunky, they're inexpensive to play, and red isn't known for it's fast ramp options. A sweet new anti-wrath card for you would be Otherworldly Outburst, in fact I feel like most times it just upgrades your whole board... Shreds of Sanity could do some work for you as a way to recall spells, and costs less than Volcanic Vision, which I'd cut. I believe that cutting Repercussion might be the right thing to do as well, although the combo with Blasphemous Act seems awesome, the card alone doesn't have much value to you. Soul's Fire seems like a good way to take out multiple players after a buff effect, and not lose your board unless you really wanted to. Volcanic Offering seems fairly slow and not in line with your deck's plan, considering you also have Ruination coming in to deal with pesky lands. Be careful in taking out cards, as a lot of spells are coming in, none of which make creatures, except technically Insurrection gets you creatures. Given that Firestorm cannot target a creature of player more than once, I think it deserves a cut. Dropping your hand to wipe everyone is awesome, but have one less target and you can't do it. Seems like a liability. It pains me, but if you keep Rebirth, I think your next cuts should come from the Kobolds. The 0 drops are fun to throw out and suddenly just have, but the artifacts will serve you a bit better here. Myr Battlesphere should get a cut, because it's 7 mana for 5 dudes. That's not the rate you're looking for here, the deck is fairly sleek and low to the ground as is, if you're going to spend 7, you can do more. I've seen Sword of the Animist net you a few lands, but suiciding something for a land may not be what you want to do, especially at a 4 mana investment. It's very possible I'm wrong on that though.I feel like Telim'Tor's Edict is a way to sort of break parity on a wrath effect, netting you cards (also pretty sweet with Insurrection!) but you have Otherworldly Outburst for that now. I may be wrong on that too, as it feels bad to have two draw spells in the cut section... I want to mention Tormenting Voice and Cathartic Reunion, although I have no idea what you would cut for them, they can smooth out land heavy draws and get you in to additional action. It's just so damn hard to cut stuff from the list.
The next thought is to go deeper in to goblins and make use of Brightstone Ritual and Skirk Prospector for additional mana. The goblin route would let you cut a few of the clunky mana givers, but I think you'd want more goblins to take advantage of them. Assuming you have enough now, I have the suggested adds/cuts below:
Cut: Flare / Temple of the False God / Volcanic Vision / Repercussion / Firestorm / Volcanic Offering / Crimson Kobolds / Crookshank Kobolds / Kobolds of Kher Keep / Palladium Myr / Opaline Unicorn / Molten Psyche / Millikin / Myr Battlesphere / Alloy Myr / Scuttlemutt / Sword of the Animist / Telim'Tor's Edict
