This deck looks delightful, but I'm worried about you running out of gas. Some Draw power might help? Harvester of Souls and Sandstone Oracle are outstanding.

Maybe consider Chandra, Flamecaller , Khorvath's Fury , Reforge the Soul , Rix Maadi Reveler , Runehorn Hellkite ? Or if you wanna keep things simple and cheap, Read the Bones and Moriok Replica are solid.

Thanks for the feedback @multimedia, much appreciated as always!

Took the deck out for a first try last night and I had an absolute blast. Never played an EDH deck as explosive as this one before. I won multiple games out of the blue, with an Banefire of X=38 as a highlight.

Right now I am considering the following changes:

I also keep playing with the thought of Spawn of Thraxes, but somehow he seems only worthwhile if I am able to abuse his ETB, which I do not see happening in mono red...

Looking forward to any feedback!

You could always cut some aspects of it so you can flesh out the deck while still keeping flavor. Adding even a couple good dragons with Bladewing would be fine. Runehorn Hellkite could be like absorbing a dragon soul. Maybe just some legendary dragons on top of that to drive home the main dragons of Skyrim. I mean do spriggans really need represented? :P

Also, Guttural Response for shouts.

So, landwise I do not like the Valakut, and would recommend either Haven of the Spirit Dragon, Flamekin Village or an Utility land like Buried Ruin. Also not a fan of Brave the Sands and Dowsing Dagger. just too cute for me. Still a fan of Scroll Rack when you play Land Tax though :)

Creaturewise I think Dragonmaster Outcast is just too low impact, also Moonveil Dragon and Skyship Stalker are a bit weak. Even though Dragonspeaker Outcast provides great ramp I am struggling with that one. There are a few dragons which merit further exploration I think, but can depend on what you are facing.

Thunderbreak Regent (A rattlesnake and nicely costed)

Thundermaw Hellkite (can clear the way for your non-trampling attack)

Scourge of the Throne (it is perfectly easy to get an additional attack out of this at least once)

Rimescale Dragon (would require moving to snow lands, a bit clunky manawise)

Kilnmouth Dragon (good utility dragon, but with the nr. of dragons you are running may be awkward)

Hellkite Charger (additional attacks? would pair nicely with neheb :)

Flameblast Dragon (no need to hit a player to dish out damage)

Wardscale Dragon (defense during your attack)

Nesting Dragon (The egg tokens are a good thing against board wipes)

Some Card Draw Dragons

Hoarding Dragon (Without the ability to misuse the ability may be a bit weak)

Eternal Dragon (more slow moving)

Dream Pillager (good effect, setup to high maybe)

Skyline Despot (well draws at least one cards and monarch makes stuff move)

Runehorn Hellkite (this one I really like. Usable EOT before you have your turn makes this really good)

I like what you've doing here. I was thinking of trying a similar version of Xantcha that eschewed the standard fare of quasi-aikido/punisher effects.

A few suggestions: Words of Waste is in some other Xantcha lists, but it seems particularly on point here, especially paired with Waste Not or Geth's Grimoire to recoup the loss of the draw.

Drownyard Temple becomes discard fodder into mid-game ramp.

Runehorn Hellkite becomes discard fodder into a late-game wheel effect.

That's all I've got for now. I'll likely reference your list for what I'll end up brewing. Thanks for putting it together.

Cheers!

Yo looks like you're having fun with this, I like it! +1 mate! I count 7.5 draw (though less, really, because some discard), but what you have doesn't give you many options. -This is commander! Draw like crazy so you can actually play!

What about Avaricious Dragon, Dragon Mage, Knollspine Dragon, and Runehorn Hellkite?

Reforge the Soul, Land Tax, Magus of the Wheel, and Runehorn Hellkite will help get cards in hand; but these are just the ones I went with in my deck:
