I would file lando under oppressive.
I hate anything that doesn't let a person play magic, and nothing will take me emotionally out of a game faster than a super oppressive deck.
I feel that if you only have fun when nobody else is allowed to play, then just play with yourself since that's all you're really doing anyway.
Back on subject, I've played in some LGS's that ban Annihilator, infect and infinite combos that don't immediately win.
I've also played where they don't allow certain commanders that aren't on the official banlist that are just too powerful.
Honestly, it all just depends on your playgroup, but I would suggest playing Worldgorger Dragon while floating enough mana to play Jokulhaups, killing everything and getting all your permanents back for the kill shot. The only thing with that strategy is someone will inevitably start running Sadistic Sacrament to get rid of it.
To answer the ramp thing, I would do From the Ashes, it doesn't count as lando, because they can get basics. There's also a card that deals x damage to opponents where x is the number of nonbasic lands they control, or something. It might not be mono-red, but I know it exists.
Also, Stoneshaker Shaman makes them sac an untapped land. Just one a turn, but enough to be annoying.
I'm sure there's more, but that's what I can think of right now.
Post Script: You might want to change your style and add another color. Mono-red is the hands-down weakest color in commander

I've been watching a lot of pleasantkenobi lately, and last night i had an idea. Is it possible to have mono-red taxes? I did a quick search of attrition cards that are mono-red, and found a surprising amount of them.
The first card that came to mind when i started searching was Manabarbs . After it hits the table, if no damage was done until then its a 20 mana limit on the game. and in modern people run shock lands, fetch lands, and other cards that sacrifice life for effects.
The next attrition strat would be land destruction. With that search I found some pretty cool cards. Stoneshaker Shaman , Akki Blizzard-Herder , Avalanche Riders, Crack the Earth ?, and Thoughts of Ruin were the ones i liked. ( Stoneshaker Shaman + Manabarbs is sick BTW.)
Lastly, card draw. Unfortunately the only card i found that could punish for card draw that could be played in mono red was Spiteful Visions .
I'm rather new to modern, so i don't know the format that well. Just throwing these cards together in a deck with 4 Lightning Bolts wouldn't work, so I'm asking for some advice. Thanks!!

Sounds to me like you're wanting more of a punisher deck. Mogis, God of Slaughter would give you access to black and other pain spells like Polluted Bonds, Painful Quandary, Bloodchief Ascension ect. Also offers more draw and more control.
Otherwise to really screw over control decks, Mono-red excels at mass land destruction. Couple that with "damned if you do, damned if you don't" type spells like Spellshock, Manabarbs. This will also work well with Mogis. Purphoros is built to be all in and fast. If Purphoros gets out early enough then control decks may have a rough time stopping him. Especially with Price of Glory, MLD, Stoneshaker Shaman and Citadel of Pain, ect.

How many cards can you think of that are mean to "mean" players? I want to build a deck that forces opponents to win in "fair ways", and I'd love help finding cards for a deck like this!
Using MagicalHacker - List of All Anti-Tutor Cards, MagicalHacker - List of All Gold-Hate Cards, MagicalHacker - List of All Anti-Infinite Cards, and MagicalHacker - List of All Anti-Control Cards, I found these cards (organized by color):
Based on those cards, I think I'm going to build a gruul deck using Ruric Thar, the Unbowed as the commander or a cheap commander that can help ramp me into my cards (Radha, Heir to Keld). Some questions:
- Are there any other cards for gruul that you think would fit this theme?
- Are there any reasons to choose something other than gruul?
- If gruul is the best for this, what gruul commander should I use, and why?

Currently really, really, REALLY liking the synergy between Winter Orb and Stoneshaker Shaman. Those two cards together make life absolutely miserable, and prevent all but the cheapest mana rocks from being cast to help get anyone out of the soft lockdown. Myself included of course, but I play lots of rocks.

I should Reiterate (lol), by spellslinger I mean a large amount of instants/sorceries not necessarily typical burn spells. Most of the instants/sorceries will end up producing tokens. The tokens in effect act as burn with Purph/Impact Tremors in play. You'd still run a lot of creatures too.
Mono does suffer from heavy control decks. It's just not as resilient or consistent due to lack of tutors, ect. However, Purphoros being countered is inevitable but the same can happen with other generals; like Taz for example. does offer some options to fight against counters like Stoneshaker Shaman or Price of Glory (Blood Moon too in some instances) as well as land destruction.
