OCPunisher on Kumano, Mono-Red Control

Disagree on Braid of Fire's free mana every upkeep to sink into Kumano, or activate abilities. If you're looking for a cut, I would question Prodigal Pyromancer . Despite the ping theme, it's just not a very strong card, even with all of the ways to add/multiply the one damage. I'm also not a huge fan of the Kaldra pieces. They're fine for flavor purposes, but they just aren't very efficient cards to play with.

Purphoros doesn't belong because this deck doesn't appear to make a lot of bodies, so it won't trigger much.

This seems like a really solid deck and I'd love to play with it or against it!

Baxdar on (Budget EDH) Rakdos, Lord of Battlecruisers!

Like the above comment said, your mana and ramp is probably fine. With Ravnica: Allegiances coming out, you'll soon have access to Rakdos locket and a cheaper Blood Crypt which could be nice for you. Commander's Sphere is an auto include in most decks. Building a good land base can get expensive quick, but Graven Cairns is my go to budget "dual" land.

I also agree with the comment above, burn is not particularly good in commander. Using this logic, most of your instants, and creatures that tap for damage like Prodigal Pyromancer or Thermo-Alchemist. Effects that say Destroy are normally much better, like Terminate, which you have, or Dreadbore which you don't. Additionally, you'll need answers to artifacts, and boardwipes. Blasphemous Act is one of my personal favorite, but many of them can get fairly expensive.

There are two types of effects that excel in commander. Effects that affect all players, and effects that generate continuous value. Consider Palace Siege. Either mode is relevant and can either accelerate the game while keeping you safe, or bring your creatures back when they inevitably get destroyed.

Tl;DR burn is not good. You need board wipes, and more direct removal for both creatures and artifacts/enchantments.

As a final note, I would check out The Commander's Quarters on Youtube. The decks he builds are more budget than yours, but you could find some great inspiration there.

Ill definitely let yah know how Memory Jar works out.

Have yah thought about Thermo-Alchemist, in your deck? He costs 1 less than Prodigal Pyromancer, he does more damage, and he has a little more toughness.

I would replace Prodigal Pyromancer with Goblin Sharpshooter. Which the deathtouch artifacts he's a powerhouse.
