Cards like Howling Mine that don't matter who controls them are good in these decks

This looks pretty sweet. I have a Radha Kill Them All deck with a similar theme of bringing equal pain to everyone. Consider Spellshock , and Pyrostatic Pillar as more enchantments to give away, and maybe Fumiko the Lowblood or Heartless Hidetsugu to keep people's life totals down.

I really dig Spellshock! I'll be definitely adding that one. I'm more unsure of Pyrostatic Pillar as it's conditional. How has it worked out for you? Thanks, I was wondering if there were more group pain cards out there.

I've noticed that 1) lifegain draws aggro 2) group pain draws aggro. People go for me A LOT. I need to dedicate more card slots to protecting myself.

Howling Mine /Font of Mythos with Psychosis Crawler seems like it'd be pretty good for group pain

Pyrostatic Pillar does it's job pretty well for me - not as good as Spellshock but both really punish cheap smells more anyway (since you cast more of them). it probably also depends on your meta - if you play against a Mayael deck, it's probably not so good.

As for protection, people incorrectly assessing threats is unfortunate but happens all the time. After a few games they might learn you're not really who they should be targetting - life totals are not really that important in EDH - especially compared to lands and cards. Soul Snare could be a good rattlesnake here. Traditional group hug like Howling Mine might also be good.

For Zedruu, Solitary Confinement is just straight synergistic. Also, for group pain that can be perceived as huggery, you might want to look into Forced Fruition .
