Don't forget Blasphemous Act too! And if you use Crucible of Worlds you can make use out of lands like Sandstone Needle and Dwarven Ruins, although if you run those Amulet of Vigor might be a nice slot for taplands. Not sure if that's ideal though since I don't see a consistent way to get all of those on the board in mono-red exactly but who knows. It's something perhaps worth considering.

Hello, I had some spare time and thought I might try to improve this. The link to it is https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/pauper-lands-improvement/?cb=1542244270 otherwise I want to compliment you on the idea and on Radiant Fountain against agro and Bojuka Bog against graveyard decks. Ancient Spring is not a good fit because of mana colors, Khalni Garden you don't need the token. Peat Bog, Sandstone Needle and Saprazzan Skerry give mana colors you don't need or are just a land that does not fit. Anyway, nice variation on zombie hunt in pauper!

great build! it looks great, i do feel its a bit overblown and that you could have the same consistency, and i feel some of your "response" cards are not really needed. mana drain for example could be replaced with a Misdirection as it works as great counter-counter magic.

also your mana base, cards like Saprazzan Skerry,Sandstone Needle,Svyelunite Temple, and Dwarven Ruins are great accelerators in addition to your standard sol lands.

the affinity artifact creatures also are good fuel. those, jhoira orMetalwork Colossus along side Energy Tap can give lots of mana for one blue. Repeal is good removal and can be one blue to draw two.

some of the $$ costly cards you have in this list are truly great, such as the wheel effects. but i do feel some of the cards are not doing their best work per slot they take up.

im working on a tight budget and so dont have access to the mana rocks or other more costly cards but do check out my list, im always down to see how and why other jhoira pilots use the list they do.

my list: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/05-07-18-jhoira-edh/

i have yet to use it, and it probs works better in a more kamikaze Cheerios build like mine but check out Drafna's Restoration

Hope your deck isn't retired! I like it a lot. Throwing some card ideas at you. I would like to pick your brain on why you wouldn't include these... mana cost, theme?

Apologies for the delay, I had to write this twice.One time mana sources make a lot of sense since you do need 11 mana to play your commander and equip all in the same turn.Basalt Monolith, Grim Monolith, Lion's Eye Diamond, Mana Vault, Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual, Seething Song, Lotus Bloom, Lotus Petal, Treasonous Ogre, Vessel of Volatility, Simian Spirit Guide

Rite of Flame is too weak and Mana Seism may be a bit too deep.

Good RocksChrome Mox, Mox Diamond, Mana Crypt, Mox Opal, Sol Ring, Coalition Relic, Gilded Lotus, Thran Dynamo, Everflowing Chalice, Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone, Metalworker

Ok rocks to cut if you need more slots.Worn Powerstone, Jeweled Amulet, Fractured Powerstone

EquipmentHammer of Nazahn, Helm of the Host, Lightning Greaves all good but how do you feel about Sword of Feast and Famine + Aggravated Assault backup strategy? Sword of the Animist is a good equipment for this strategy as well but depending on the table may not be fast enough.

Draw and tutorsSensei's Divining Top, Daretti, Scrap Savant, Tormenting Voice, Wheel of Fortune, Imperial Recruiter,

I do not like Gamble without reliable graveyard interaction and I generally dont like Winds of Change especially if your opponents have any graveyard interactions.

Love the counter package, no Dualcaster Mage?Fork, Burnout, Pyroblast, Red Elemental Blast, Reverberate, Ricochet Trap, Glorious End, and of course Possibility Storm. Not a big fan of Veilstone Amulet in cedh but the makeup of your local meta will make or break this card. Active Volcano is probably too much.

Extra turns can be a big surprise win for this strategy. Love them. Final Fortune, Last Chance, Warrior's Oath

Artifact hate seems good but missing Vandalblast. By Force, Shattering Spree, Trash for Treasure.

Moon effects are strong but another meta call. Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon

Maybe too many colorless lands? I think you could cut one land overall but I understand you want to hit each land drop. Ancient Tomb, Buried Ruin, Cavern of Souls, City of Traitors, Command Beacon, Crystal Vein, Dwarven Ruins, Gemstone Caverns, 25xMountain, Sandstone Needle, Scorched Ruins, Sequestered Stash

Equipment assists seem good for faster hands but kind fragile. Brass Squire and Magnetic Theft

Dire Fleet Daredevil is a good card.Goblin Welder, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, and Welding Jar are all good.

Kuldotha Forgemaster is a good way to tutor the equipment into play.

Sphere of Resistance is a fantastic protection card but can make it easier for others to combo if you leave it out.

have you tested Sandstone Needle and Saprazzan Skerry? i like them over wasteland and stripmine. they power out turn 2 blood moon and are kinda a cheap way to ramp AND hold mana open the same turn for interaction during the early turns.

red-elemental blast... hm you have both these in here but i think you could cut 1 for Dispel as that catches Flash and Ad Nauseam.

again nice alter for the commander (and some cards). that is Jubei Kibagami?

I really want to have Boros Charm and Deflecting Palm yet I would have to splash White in - would have to include Sacred Foundry and Arid Mesa.

Chain Lightning - I completely glanced over that

I should include Fireblast, Barbarian Ring, and Flame Rift

Monastery Swiftspear and Sandstone Needle - I am not sure how to feel about them. Monastery should be good since it is turn 1 with haste, it is just me thinking about creature destruction decks with cards like Oblivion Ring and Path to Exile - Needle, I had the blue in my EDH deck, Saprazzan Skerry via Braids of Lands and Artifacts, it was great for doing what it needed to. I should try it now that I think about it.

I've never tried commander but this deck looks cool - proliferate is one of my favourite mechanics. I tried to put something together in pauper where i was taking advantage of the different types of tokens (depletion counters, infect, -1/-1, -0/-1 etc) it didn't come together so great and it's on the backburner right now...

Cool deck - any of these fit? (don't know the format)
