Skred is highly meta dependent. It just folds to noncreature combo. Right now the only things that fall into this category is Ad Naus and Baral storm, both still fringe-ish. In creature metas Skred thrives.

That's why I run the Roasts.
I have tried Valakut a few times and it's always been annoying because it's not Snow. It puts me off a turn on my Skreds and I've never liked that. The 3 damage isn't irrelevant but in a LOT of my testing and playing with this deck in tournaments I frequently only have 5-6 mountains in play by the time the game ends so I would likely only get one trigger off of it.
On the Coldsteel Heart thing, I won't be running the heart. Late game mana rocks are NOT something you want to draw and the ability to redraw for is by FAR superior to an additional Snow permanent on the battlefield. If you are topdecking (which happens fairly frequently) a Coldsteel Heart does literal nothing to advance the battlefield.
Additionally, heart enters tapped meaning I can't play the heart and use it's mana right away to cast a Relic or Spellbomb or Scourge.

The ability to draw cards is pretty much always better in any circumstance

Traps let me do more than just counter a counter. It also lets me redirect other things as well.
Mindstone draws me a card and Heart enters tapped.

Tron's not huge atm, it's kinda losing steam, titanshift is fringe-ish enough for me not to worry about it and DS will usually play their dudes before they are too big to roast. I've never really seen them wait to cast a Roastable goyf or a 4/4 DS.
I may just add Bridges cause I have them till I can find what I really need.
I had given some consideration for Surgicals though, maybe that could do work?

Roast does a lot of work 1:1ing those big threats you talked about.
I have to keep the 3 angers main. In my personal meta it's too good.

Anyone here play Skred? I have 3 slots in my SB that need to be filled and was wondering if people had some ideas.

That would actually be absolutely terrifying.
Mardu Nahiri with a DS package. You try and kill them before they can ult Nahiri and Emrakul you and they just drop a couple of 7/7 DS and look at you like "wut now"
There's still the fetch, shock, TS plan too.

Rofl! Death's shadow kiln fiend, what will they cook up next?
Or just put DS and orzhov charm in a nahiri Mardu deck and have Emrakul as your backup plan :')
March 22, 2017 10:36 a.m.
Idk, Orzhov Charm represents so much more flexibility.
Makes me wonder if Mardu would be good though, W for charm, and R for battlerage, idk, meh

For reference this is what I was sent.
March 22, 2017 8:15 a.m.
Anyone have thoughts on the Esper death's shadow lists going around? Orzhov Charm seems SUPER good

This is why a lot of bannings have occurred
Cheap decks are easy to build, and if they are decently competitive then many people will flock to said deck. With the sheer number of people flocking to a deck it overrepresents and floods the meta regardless of its true power level.
Couple this with the way that people tend to complain lately about a rising star deck even if it's not as good as its representation and you get bad blood and bannings.
