Hey, interesting deck. I don't play much mono red so there isn't much I can help with except for a card I think could help you, specially in regards to triggers, Rite of the Raging Storm. The elementals entering the battlefield will trigger Warstorm Surge, Impact Tremors, Flayer of the Hatebound, etc... And when they die at the end of turn they will also trigger Goblin Sharpshooter, Vicious Shadows, Outpost Siege, etc... Plus it is one extra attacker you have to inflict some more damage in combat and also generate more mana with Neheb, the Eternal. Good luck, hope the decks works well!

(sorry deck-large isn't working for some reason)

Two Feldon decks in a row, nice!

Mine is a bit more casual, but still fun I hope.

I was mainly wondering if my combo actually works lol.

Chimeric Coils + Vicious Shadows + Krark-Clan Ironworks/Ashnod's Altar + Salvaging Station to create infinite VS triggers off the dying CC.

Void there are a few suggestions I have, that I think you'll like.

First and foremost I love that you're running Vulshok Battlemaster. So here's what I propose for that card. Vulshok Battlemaster in hand, Mycosynth Lattice in play, and Bludgeon Brawl in play. This turns all the non-creature non-equipment artifacts into equipments. So all the lands your opponents control and all the mana rocks your opponents control, all the enchantments your opponents control, all the Planswalkers your opponents control, they are now colorless artifact equipments. Then you cast your Vulshok Battlemaster from your hand taking and equipping all the stuff your opponents control onto Vulshok Battlemaster. That's sweet. Secondly if you're using your tokens by killing them off for card draw from the Skullclamp and for ramp from the Ashnod's Altar, also for damage from the Goblin Bombardment, then why not have Vicious Shadows in play while you do these things. Vicious Shadows does soo much damage here!

Do it, it's a lot of fun to play! I used to have a win con of Purphoros, God of the Forge, Vicious Shadows, and some more token makers, but that didn't feel as Prince-like.

I also got rid of the usual Zedruu donation tricks that screw over your opponent, keeping only the Akroan Horse, and of course enchantments/artifacts that affect the whole board. I love donating Torpor Orb to the ETB creature player. Usually I donate tokens though, going for the flavor of making an audience. :)

If you have any good on theme ideas, I'm all ears.

If your goal is to sac them then put Vicious Shadows in the deck also you should put in some free sac outlets like Ashnods alter and Viscera Seer.

Firebones675, I really appreciate the feedback. I'm currently thinking of cutting the allies and going more into the sac/reanimator route, adding Warstorm Surge, Vicious Shadows, and more of a reanimator package with things like Dread Return, Vigor Mortis, etc. I like the effect that things like Purphoros and Impact Tremors have hitting the whole board at one time.

Not sure if I have enough ramp in here at the moment, and tribal support like Urza's Incubator, most of the shamans are cheap enough cast that I haven't worried about it much but it might be nice to go more the value route. I'll have to test it out.

Thinking of going all in on the ETB and Sac effects, adding Warstorm Surge, Vicious Shadows and the like.

Maybe Vicious Shadows to do even more damage to a player, or just focus on bolting their creatures.
