hi Draw_Wurm, cool deck! anything mono red in commander is cool.
My favorite thing with mono-red is mana doublers: Caged Sun, Extraplanar Lens, and Gauntlet of Power. If you cut a few of your underwhelming utility lands like Darksteel Citadel, Great Furnace, Blinkmoth Well, and Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep for basic mountains then you can get even more power from these mana doublers that rely on basics. You're already running trading post so you have some artifact recusion in there to get back your doublers in case they get blown up. as a bonus you get extra power from Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle for have more mountains too!
personally i would run Burnished Hart over Soldevi Sentry. as more mana = less problems.
also if you are going voltron with your commander, you could throw some OP equipments in there, Sword of Fire and Ice and Sword of Feast and Famine are my two favorites. thrown in a Godo, Bandit Warlord and you have an equipment tutor to give your commander some evasion and some extra value when he hits.
have fun and enjoy mono red!!!

Interested in people's experience/wisdom. I'm trying to work on the creature mix in my Adamaro deck. The aim of the deck is to durdle and play group hug draw and balance that with cards that slow our opponents' ability to take advantage such as War's Toll. We try not to make ourselves conspicuous and then launch a big threat late on (Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Blightsteel Colossus, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth) or bleed our opponents out using Repercussion\Vicious Shadows and small ping damage.

Cards like Meekstone feel like they draw a lot of immediate hate and attention. Ditto Winter Orb and Torpor Orb and other cards that shut things down. Silent Arbiter and Smoke also feel like they may draw some hate.
Teferi's Puzzle Box has worked well because it disrupts strategies but doesn't cut access to cards.
At the minute I'm using Adamaro, First to Desire itself as a cheap cmc chump blocker that tends to fluctuate between being a 4/4 and a 7/7. Early game we use cards like Soldevi Sentry because it boosts Adamaro and is a regenerating shield to subtly discourage people, which seems to work.
I've just recently swapped in Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs as a ghostly prison effect. I'm also trying Masticore, again for the regeneration, it's inbuilt Pyrohemia and the fact we don't care too much about discard.
Mogg Maniac offers something a bit different.

Hey Daedalus19876. You're right. That's a very important point with Soldevi Sentry. You can't just use it as a mana sink to Voltron Adamaro (or do damage if you were using Nekusar). I've had it in and out as a potential low CMC chump blocker that can be regenerated. But not sure if we need it.
It's also worth pointing out Anvil of Bogardan has an errata saying 'players have no maximum hand size'.

It's worth mentioning that Soldevi Sentry does not give you the ability to force opponents to draw repeatedly. The Oracle text says "Choose target opponent. Regenerate Soldevi Sentry. When it regenerates this way, that player may draw a card." It has to be destroyed/die for them to draw.

Think it's at the stage where it needs testing.

Dude why not just have Soldevi Sentry in the deck You can regenerate him any number of times to voltron up regardless of weather he would be destroyed.

I am a Daretti player, so maybe I can help.
Soldevi Sentry seems like a great chump blocker if you need that, with very little downside. If you're opponents just never use the draw when adamaro's out, then Darksteel Myr may just be a better blocker.
I don't know what to say about the planeswalkers. Chandra and Daretti are great if you have graveyard shenanigans, but all I saw was Anger, so I don't think it's worth it really. Koth of the Hammer has the potential for a ton of ramp, and that emblem's great for removing the last points of life. I would say 25+ mountains for him to be good though.
As for Mirrorworks and Darksteel Forge, you do have 30 artifacts. In my Daretti build, I find that Darksteel Forge is nigh unbeatable sometimes if they don't have Into the Core. Mirrorworks seems less good, because some artifacts you have are terrible in multiples or just don't do anything when copied.
Mimic Vat is great, however it doesn't do anything with your general. Just a good value card. Works best if you're playgroup has a lot of big creatures (cough cough Xenagos, God of Revels cough cough Mayael the Anima cough)
Anyway, that's my thoughts.
Now that I hit preview I realize that's a lot of words. Wow.

It's a bit like Nekusar, a bit like Daretti, but mono red. Wincons are Voltron Adamaro, Blightsteel colossus + chandra's ignition, Hellkite Tyrant + artifacts, or just general bleeding out.
The aim is to present an early group hug non threat, and then power into the late game.
Was wondering if people with Daretti experience or similar may be able to help?
Cards I'm not sure about:
Bludgeon Brawl. Cute. Extra Voltron shenanigans with all our draw artifacts.
Gratuitous Violence. Powerful effect, but not sure if we run too few creatures for it?
Repercussion. Feels like there's a lot of useful synergy, and we don't run many creatures so minimal downside.
I keep putting in Chandra Ablaze and taking her out as I'm not sure we run enough red cards to benefit. Also looked at Daretti and Koth.
Mirrorworks. Potentially huge stackability.
Darksteel Forge. Additional wincon. Draws attention away from other things we're doing.
Mimic Vat. Just a great EDH card and helps us profit from other's removal.
Malignus. Massive fattie. Dies to removal...
Metalwork Colossus. Cheap artifacts fattie. With recursion.
Soldevi Sentry chump blocker.
Filigree Familiar\artifact inspector. Chumps with upside.
