ComboCrazy Deckling

I love combos, as you could probably derive from my username. I would appreciate it if you would take a look at my decks and tell me what you think. I also enjoy giving people advice on how to improve their combos, so if you want me to take a look at your deck, just ask!

Braids of Fire allows you to cast big burn on upkeep, which gives you a ton more mana later... maybe mainboard it? It depends on how many instants you want to run. I agree with a Doubling Cube, it's almost as degenerate here as in an Omnath deck. Also, Commune with Lava is debatably the greatest draw spell in EDH for red. Two cards in maybeboard absolutely need to be mainboard, the Myojin of Infinite Rage and the Strionic Resonator. Some cards to cut, in my optinion, include Sizzle and Tunneling Geopede.

If you're looking for some more good mana dorks, Fyndhorn Elves and Llanowar Elves are solid options. In fact, I'd replace Blisterpod with one of those two, they're pretty strict upgrades. I'd also cut Scour from Existence in favor of Beast Within.

This needs a a lot of fast mana and some lockout tricks or fast wincons. I'm thinking Burn at the Stake for some lightning fast damage, Mind Over Matter because it's degenerate with like six cards in your deck, Temple Bell, Training Grounds, Hive Mind and Mindwrack Liege. Some of those are a bit on the pricey side, but all of them would contribute a good deal to the exxectiveness of the deck.

Oh, haha I saw the foil Mox Opal in mainboard and immediately assumed you didn't have a restrictive budget, my bad! Anyways, good luck with the deck!

Correction: meant Planar Bridge, not Planar Portal

Lifeline, Scarecrone, and Nim Deathmantle are all auto-includes for a Hope of Ghirapur deck. They allow you to brutally abuse its ability and recur it every turn, circumventing command tax. Metalworker, Copper Gnomes, and Ancient Tomb are also great cards, and I see a couple strict upgrades to fit them in. If you're considering Darksteel Forge, I'd add Mycosynth Lattice, since those two win the game with Nevinyrral's Disk out. (It destroys all permanents except your own) mycosynth also deals with pesky cards like Null Rod, and since you're using voltron, you'd likely win the ensuing mana-less battle. I'd also add Kuldotha Forgemaster as an additional tutor tool. Karn, Silver Golem also happens to combo with lattice to wreak havoc on lands, if that combo interests you. In a ramp heavy deck like this, I think Planar Portal would do a lot of good, especially since it actually cheapens Darksteel Forge and is a reusable tutoring engine. Also, Lightning Greaves is a strict upgrade over Swiftfoot Boots. Avarice Amulet is a very bad card, if you're looking for draw, Sword of Fire and Ice does the job better. Same deal with Vulshok Morningstar and Sword of Light and Shadow; it just does more.

Oh, you've got a stompy meta. That totally makes sense if that's the kind of thing you're going to be stealing. Also have you considered Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh and Cruel Ultimatum as some other wrath? Idk they kind of just come to mind when I think of grixis, not sure if they totally fit with the theme.

Bribery should be under envy, since you're staking something that's someone else's. Also Gather Specimens and Desertion are great envy cards. I feel like Roast would be a total meme in a deck like this, even if it's not that good, it's always fun to roast someone's creature and then make a joke about it lol. Also maybe run Norin the Wary, under pride, because he's useless and you're proud of it. Anyways I'll comment again should anything come to mind, this deck looks fantastic, great work with the theme!
