That is evil. +1 on the deck! Im running a very similar Naya deck using the red for Xenagos, the Reveler for mana and Purphoros, God of the Forge to deal a great amount of damage. If not interested in Red, Mycoloth+Eldrazi Displacer+Avenger of Zendikar would combine for some epicness in here.

Also because it's hybrid mana mono red might be better option. Purphoros, God of the Forge synergizes well with Balefire Liege and I really think that Aurelia, the Warleader is lackluster here. She seems overly expensive at 6 cmc with a double red double white commitment. Blood Moon really hoses a lot of decks.
Good luck! I hope it works out for you. I might give my own build of this deck a try.

So I was thinking about Panharmonicon as well in place of Rings of Brighthearth, but in the end rings are just too good to leave out considering all the things they work with. After I added it all up, there were only around 5-6 cards that Panharmonicon really interacts well with in the deck and given how lean the deck is otherwise it just felt like it would end up being a dead draw most times EVEN with how good it is with Purphoros, God of the Forge and Breya, Etherium Shaper alone.
In terms of the infinite mana situation, I don't have Mana Echoes yet... and it has spiked up on tcgplayer, so it'll probably be a few weeks before I look to pick it up (It went from $10 on low to $25 on low because there were no longer any in stock so I'm not sure if it popped up in legacy or vintage recently and spiked in popularity or if it's just EDH players buying them up). Anyway, I decided to add Blue Sun's Zenith to the deck as someone suggested above, because if you draw it and need a combo piece it's a reusable draw spell... if you already have infinite mana set up, it's a reusable way to deck out another player at the table. It seemed really good.

Learn from the Past, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Cathartic Reunion, Mystical Tutor, Consecrated Sphinx, Well of Ideas, please don't build this deck? It looks pretty awesome, actually. You could probably cut Arcanis the Omnipotent, Staff of Nin, maybe Nin, the Pain Artist, Mercurial Chemister, and Ogre Battledriver. Maybe consider running some counterspells and some more bounce removal? Pretty solid and there's already some good suggestions.

TheHamster Yeah, the lack of enchantment destruction / counters is glaring for Red - I keep hoping they'll address it in a new set or something but no dice so far. As far as Red Elemental Blast, that feels too specific to devote one of my 99 to but perhaps worth putting into a sideboard for if I happen to be playing a mono blue deck.
pinecone2k3 I'm like 90% sure I have a Lightning Bolt in my collection back home, but I can't for the life of me think of a reason that I wouldn't have put it in here if I did. Impact Tremors looks fun as hell - I should double check though, does that trigger for the tokens that Krenko generates or is it strictly for 'actual' creatures?
Argy I am nearly certain that I pulled a Purphoros, God of the Forge back in my Theros or Born of the Gods fatpacks. I think I was so caught up in my blinkered "Gotta be only goblins" that I dismissed the usefulness of him without really stopping to consider it. Throne of the God-Pharaoh looks just nasty enough for me to get a decent chuckle out of playing it.
Thank you for the recommendations / advice all three of you.

Maybe add Descent of the Dragons as a finisher? Turn all your locusts into dragons :) What's really funny, is that you may not even need to attack with the transmuted locusts if you have Purphoros, God of the Forge on the table, since the Dragons entering the battlefield will cause Purphoros to deal quite a bit of damage to all players.

First of all, thanks for even commenting with suggestions! Literally my first time haha. All your suggestions will be up for consideration, but I just tossed the list together. I'll be playtesting it to see where I'm going with it. Also, Purphoros, God of the Forge would be an instant add for a deck like this, but my playgroup has collectively banned him. Lol
