Scab-Clan Berserker Discussion

Ok so I took a good long look and you appear to be on a budget of about $10 per card so I kept my recommendations around or below that mark. The biggest thing I have learned about neheb decks regardless of the speed or competitiveness of the table is that they want additional combats for more mana since it checks total damage dealt in a turn and ways to get spend that mana. My first recommendations are the additional combat effects.
Aggravated Assault Especially this one
Combat Celebrant, this one combos with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and if you have it Zealous Conscripts is screaming to be included. Zealous can haste your creatures, steal mana or beatsticks to further your plan, or clear the way for your attack.
Next some draw card effects. Some of these are the exile then cast effect, but with Neheb surging mana thats just as good.
Runehorn Hellkite, Magus of the Wheel, Knollspine Dragon, Chandra, Flamecaller, Bedlam Reveler wheel effects are the most efficient draw cards you can get and the ones that hit your opponents too can disrupt tutors.
Protecting Neheb is extremely important and can be done in two ways: traditional protection, and slipping under your opponents. What I mean by the slipping under your opponents is playing him with haste and/or earlier than expected, this is the key driver of my deck since my table doesnt give me time to play him at normal speed. Below are some mana accelerants to cheat him out, haste sources I havent covered above, and traditional protection.
Generator Servant this one is both mana and haste but broadcasts your intent ahead of time.
Sword of the Animist great for filtering your deck both before and after you slam multiple attacks with Neheb.
Anger plays nice with the looting and wheels mentioned before.
Hall of the Bandit Lord can scare people with the 3 life but it is so efficient and so worth it.
Homeward Path because your games run long enough for dumb things to happen to Neheb.
Fork counter your counter, haha!
Sometimes you just have to mess up your opponents to buy the time you need.Blasphemous Act is great if you have an indestructible Neheb and Red Sun's Zenith is removal or a win con depending on how much mana you have.
Captivating Crew in a creature heavy meta can wreck face.
Magus of the Moon if youre that guy and your opponents rely too much on lands.
Scab-Clan Berserker especially if anyone plays storm.
Stigma Lasher deals with lifegain which can otherwise be a big problem.
Stranglehold make them draw cards like you have to.
Void Winnower there are other good eldrazi to consider as something to poor your mana into but this is in my top two more budget picks.
Other good cards.Hanweir Garrison couples with a haste land and is a fantastic beater. Hero's Blade extra damage for no equip cost. Strionic Resonator does gross things with all the triggers in the deck. Temur Battle Rage great way to massively increase your damage and mana.
Please read the whole thing I can't check mark "suggestions" for all of these at once.

Thanks for the upvote! I had never seen Archetype of Aggression before, I might swap it for Scab-Clan Berserker. I hope you got something from my deck, it is more combat oriented. My play group is all over the map on their decks, I needed to match the tempo early game.

Steelspike I guess that makes sense. I just don't know where to draw the line. From the Ashes was already in consideration, but what about Ruination? How about Keldon Firebombers? Tectonic Break for 6?
I personally don't see the difference between the Worldgorger and Jokulhaups, and say, Epicenter with Dingus Egg out? I wouldn't just run out a MLD without a clear plan to win either immediately or within a couple turns.
I will probably cut the MLD and just have a mono-R stax build. Mono-R isn't as bad as mono-W, and this specific deck I don't see becoming more "fun" than 2 color, especially since I can run non-basic hate in mono color without hurting myself. In fact, splashing black for Tainted AEther and Lethal Vapors seems way more oppressive than just having Scab-Clan Berserker or Manabarbs.

Here is a list of budget cards I think you should consider:
Here are some cards that has a little more value:
Another thing I noticed you are lacking is card draw, here is some suggestions:

Hey, it's me. I'm not sure if you wanted criticism, but here's my take:
You lack mana acceleration. I think 2 drops are very important, moreso than 3 because they're more reliable in being ale to keep more hands and easier to squeeze out on turns where you want to do more. So instead of Kodama's Reach and Cultivate, you should go with Farseek, Nature's Lore and I'm a fan of Into the North with the R/G and G/W Snow Duals (Arctic Flats and Highland Weald) with a few snow basics in case you draw them early. I would even argue for Sakura-Tribe Elder because it's such a good ramp card. Afterwards, even if they're not in-theme Wood Elves and Farhaven Elf make way more sense in a beatdown deck than Sorceries.
I also think you're one land short of what you need, plus I would cut the Evolving Wilds/Terramoprhic and replace with another dual of some kind. Krosan Verge is a great way to ramp at little to no cost and can grab you duals. There's always Blighted Woodland. I also think the deck can probably decently be able to use Mosswort Bridge, Spinerock Knoll and Windbrisk Heights.
Since you do want damage, we previously talked about Throne of the God-Pharaoh, Harsh Mentor and Scab-Clan Berserker. Since your game plan is put Creatures into play and kill the table with turning sideways, Impact Tremors would be great. Ajani Unyielding looks like it would be good for this deck too, another draw I would suggest is Skullclamp in any Creature-based shell. Plus Harsh Mercy for a Wrath that mostly leaves you untouched.
I think you also have enough Creatures to use some of my favourite tech: Birthing Pod, Zendikar Resurgent, Lurking Predators and Assemble the Legion (Though they're Soldiers, not humans). If you're willing to forgo flavour, there's also Oketra's Monument to get more dudes.

Chandra, Flamecaller is so good that I think you should find room for it anyway. I would recommend taking out Reforge the Soul. I can assure you the miracle never happens when you need it to, and casting it for 5 was something I almost never did in my mono-red deck until the day it was cut for something else.
I still think Scab-Clan Berserker isn't worth it. "This is great if it gets through and then also stays on the board" is far too much to ask in my opinion.
