Looks entertaining. I'd add some Copperline Gorge , Solemn Simulacrum , and perhaps Spellskite . Hell, even Rites of Flourishing could be thrown in for lulz, but then I'd just make this a R/G turbofog/turboland hybrid that wins with Red Sun Zenith.

Have you thought of Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger or Caged Sun ? I'm not sure if you are going competitive or casual, but I run both of them (along with everything else you have in here) in my Rosheen Meanderer EDH.
You also can use Genesis Wave for a metric f*ck ton of ramping in a deck like this. It hurts X-cost creatures though, so you have to consider the amount of Hydras.

Looks like Rosheen Meanderer is making a comeback.

I would find some space for Blasphemous Act since it would kind of fit with the whole spending lots of mana theme and will help you a lot against aggro.

@torridus:I feel like copperline gorge isn't neccessary- I'd rather have the straight up-and-down land come into play, so I can get the extra damage on my next x-costed spell.
I had considered Rites of Flourishing, but the trouble with Rites is that it gives my opponent too much card advantage. x-costed spells aren't that efficient at killing multiple creatures, so I want to avoid giving my opponents more card draw than I can handle.
Spellskite seems like it would solve some issues the deck is currently facing.
@marco420:Primeval titan is a good finisher. But I kind of have to wonder if its neccessary when I can just play all these x-costed spells. Why pay 6 when I could pay 7, or 8? Slagstorm's a decent idea, though. I could go creatureless, and double up on mass-burn effects to not die, but the elves add in a nice little variance to the game, absorb kill spells for the hydras, and serve as conduits for the untamed mights and wolf runs.
@OmegaSerrisI'm actually glad that red sun's zenith has the exile effect, since the graveyard is super-relevant right now, but yes, I do seem to lose to control pretty hardcore.
I thought about vorinclex and caged sun, but for caged sun, I'm in two colors, and need to hit triple red for the flashback on devil's play. I feel like they're a little too slow- if I wanted to generate that much mana, I could just be unimaginative and use the infinite mana myr combo. I saw genesis wave, but its not good here because the vast majority of the deck is instants, sorceries, or x-costed creatures.
Rosheen Meranderer is neat. Good pick for general. Hadn't seen it before today.

Hilarious concept, though I think you need some instant speed spot removal though to keep yourself alive till you can make the X burn spells count, Shock , Galvanic Blast , Incinerate , Beast Within , Volt Charge (makes your hydra bigger too), etc...

First off, let me start by saying this is a hilarious concept and well done. I especially enjoy the amusing sideboard. :)
I created a derivative deck called "deck:deez-nuts" inspired by your work here.
In Deez Nuts, I started by assuming that Balls. had too many X casting cost cards, and that you'd still be able to use all of your mana each turn to play giant creatures, or use Kessig Wolf Run . I think I'd like to add a few more pumpable creatures.
I'm not sure how well I succeeded and it is still a work in progress (it feels a bit fragile and slow to get going). Suggestions welcome.

Oh man, I love this. ALL the manas! Run a card:Praetor's Counsel just as a 1-of, imho.
