Skred deals damage to target creature equal to the number of snow permanents you control.

The deck looks pretty good, I think Skred could also be really efficient removal that synergizes with your theme.

If you play black there are plenty of better options than Skred - unless your meta is overrun by Veil of Summer.
Fatal Push, Murderous Cut, Sinister Concoction (in casd you want to kill emrakul), and at 2 mana you havd cards like Dreadbore, that kill walkers too, exile effects to make things really dead and make sure that Wurmcoil Engine doesn't spawn its nrood when it dies like Epic Downfall.
Honorable mention goes to Tragic Slip.

Looking for help on a black red snow control build featuring Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger as well as Dead of Winter and Skred. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/dead-skred-2/ is the Deck. Thank you for your time

In a playgroup with lots of aggro decks... Turbofog comes to mind... but it honestly loses its charm after the first game imo/experience..
But in general I say control is the way to go if you wanna think/make decisions... a very cheeky shell to consider is skred red which has a very small shell with lots of room for customization... and its cheap.... Snow-Covered Mountains with Skred and some sweepers like Anger of the Gods with Blood Moon and Koth of the Hammer and your on your way to a really fun deck with lots of choices and can handle aggro without being boring.

Cut the consult plan and add cards like mentioned above and stuff like Aria of Flame so its more of a tempo style deck. Cards that get value from cantrips/removal or just value spells. Bonus points if you can go snow mana with Skred, Dead of Winter, Back to Basics and what ever else cares for snow basics.

Nice deck! I really like the direction you're taking, it looks like we think alike in our strategies for mono red -- feel free to compare to my red Akroma build, I update it regularly: The Red Terror: Akroma's Manifesto
I noticed Akroma and Drakuseth have a few things in common; big CMC, massive presence on the battlefield, and the ability to one-shot opponents. So the emphasize on explosive ramp in red is definitely appreciated. Here's a few thoughts from my experience playing Akroma:
One-time mana benefits like Mana Geyser and Geosurge are strong counter bait (either for the spell or for the commander that comes with it) and so often just leave you with fewer cards in your hand for your trouble. Unless you have alternative wincon plans for that mana, I would focus on permanent-based mana sources. I would look to mana doublers like Gauntlet of Power or even Caged Sun since this improves your board position.
I like your inclusion of Bolt Bend and I recently added it to my deck as well - it's so sneaky. In that vein, you might think of adding Not of This World because people NEVER see it coming, and it's free if you're protecting your commander. Also, I applaud main-decking Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast because they almost always carry their weight in gold.
You might want to think about switching your land base to snow-covered mountains. This would give access to a couple of nice cards like Skred Extraplanar Lens and Mouth of Ronom -- Mouth and Skred are nice responses to Gaddock Teeg, which in my experience often shuts down our decks.
I'd think of including alternative win conditions; Insurrection is often a blow out, and I'd reiterate the strength of Etali, Primal Storm as though it might eat removal, that's one removal spell less that will target your commander. The value of Etali is definitely real. Even Pyrohemia could do wonders here.

If your mana can support it, Frostwalk Bastion can be a great manland.
How has Ohran Viper preformed for you?

First off welcome back to modern, it's been a while I see and yeah... things haven't been too kind to Skred Red, first off I will say that the current lists are likely temur now, here is an example:
That's just to give you an idea of where snow as an archetype has gone nowadays but let's talk about classic skred red. Basically you want to get yourself 4 Arcum's Astrolabe right away, the card quite frankly is broken, it replaces itself and ups your skred snow count right away. Here is a list from MTUgin that I am a fan of:
That list can use a lot of work, for example I think Blast Zone is likely just better than the ratchet bomb, and another little Chandra could be played, but it should give you something to work from. Skred right now can be a little weird, Primeval Titan decks are very good right now meaning being the Blood Moon deck isn't a bad place to be, but you really do lack any meaningful sideboard cards. I'd probably cut the SSG's for Damping Sphere which is also good against titan and storm. If your meta turns out to be a ton of titan you should be decently positioned otherwise one of skred's biggest problems in this day and age is what is becoming the end all and be all of the modern format and that is game actions per turn. Skred has a very low count on this and thus is inherently behind decks like amulet or urza which are doing many things a turn. Now, again Blood Moon can just win games but it is a concern. The temur build solves this problem some but is a very different deck.
As for having to buy new cards, its a reality all us modern players have had to face, 2019 produced a LOT of staple cards: Wrenn and Six, Teferi, Time Raveler, Urza, Lord High Artificer, Arcum's Astrolabe, and Oko, Thief of Crowns to name a few. In a way Skred has a lot less than most decks so there is that to look forward to I guess. My advice to you though is just cast moon, you can update as you go, moon will steal you games while you do. If I were you I would prioritise the Chandra's and Seasoned Pyromancer both seem good here. Let me know what your meta looks like I'd be happy to help you out with a sideboard!
