Zada, Hedron Grinder Discussion

Hey SlavicGhaespar, thx for your comment!
Yeah, Shared Animosity is nice, but a bit off flavor. If i had one i'd much rather put it in my Zada, Hedron Grinder deck. In this deck Beastmaster Ascension is just as good, the buff is static and the card costs only a glimpse of Shared Animosity.
Vexing Shusher but tbh Prossh, Skyraider of Kher doesn't care too much about being countered, as i can - and want to - recast him over and over. As far as utility goes i am either able to sac him as spell cost or have enough redundancy in the deck to replace whatever is countered.
But thx for your suggestions anyway!

Hey mate, from experimenting with similar stuff, I found that copying spells (like with Zada, Hedron Grinder or Mirrorwing Dragon) doesn't count as casting and therefore wouldn't active Heroic. Maybe I'm wrong (or maybe you already knew that), but I'd recommend looking into it. But as a lover of creature-heavy pump decks, looks good in general.

I would say Krenko or Purphoros are my gut reactions when I think mono-red.
I have a Feldon deck and if Im honest with myself I dont enjoy it. Its not all pimped out power-wise, but its not weak either. There just arent as many nuances to it, just kind of loot loot swing as you said. And its really annoying when people start realizing they can just kill him and youre stuck with a mitt/yard full of fatties.
You could also try Godo, Bandit Warlord or Fumiko the Lowblood. Fumiko really encourages going all in, and Godo encourages a certain build. Could be fun? Zada, Hedron Grinder makes for an interesting build. Maybe somewhat dangerous...

There are probably hundreds of cards that are better for Zada, Hedron Grinder than Dragonshift. However, this is a Dragonshift deck, not a Zada, Hedron Grinder deck. Dragonshift holds sentimental value for me since it helped me win my first tournament game during a Dragon's Maze draft so I've always wanted to make it the centerpiece of a casual build. Zada happened to be a nice way to speed up the deck, but I didn't want him to become the star. I specifically avoided cards like Cerulean Wisps and Titan's Strength for this reason.

I really feel like Dragonshift is not the greatest use of the "copy instant or sorcery" ability.

I'm not playing a lot of the super dorky combos, but there's a few ones i'd enjoy:

Thermo-alchemist and Braid of Fire have both been in iterations of this deck but just didn't make the long term cut. I need my cheap creatures to be able to attack and as it turns out, Firebrand Archer is way better than Thermo-alchemist. Also, Braid of Fire turned out to be next to useless as this deck goes from 0-1,000 in a turn with all the mana Neheb can generate. You end up not really needing any other slower mana sources. If anything, I often have too much mana and not enough things to do with it. I'd say the top 3 mono red commanders in no particular order are Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Zada, Hedron Grinder, and Neheb, the Eternal. They all do sort of different things with KJ being almost strictly combo, Neheb being straight-up burn, and Zada is aggro af with probably the best card draw in mono red. Krenko is undoubtedly very powerful, but I find him mind-numbingly boring and solved and due to the low land count most Krenko decks run, if you kill Krenko once or twice, the deck usually runs out of steam quickly. I don't think flip Chandra is relevant in EDH in any capacity.
