Ouch, that's a rough trade. I was surprised when I saw the price tag on elixir. I remembered it being a two dollar card but that must have been years ago.

I found that after the deck's first win my playgroup was super on guard against it. The fear that a damage doubler could come out any turn made me a target when I typically should not have been. I guess the best way to play is to assemble the combo pieces in hand and try to win in one go but 12 mana and a haste enabler out is a lot to ask for... Sorry, I'm not really answering your question. The important thing is if you can build the deck such that you have fun piloting it whether it works or not. My goal is certainly not to dissuade you from building the deck, it is to prevent you from hitting the same walls I did.

An idea I toyed around with for a while was to include the HH kill pieces but not build the deck around it. I was never able to work it out for myself.

Some additional ideas I've had for your deck are Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast to protect the combo, Platinum Emperion to prevent HH from hitting you, and Neheb, the Eternal for crazy mana after a HH life halving.

Love Heartless Hidetsugu , used to have deck built around him myself.

Gamble is pretty affordable nowadays and should definitely be included.

Godo, Bandit Warlord provides a tutor for your lifelink equips.

Thousand-Year Elixir is the most expensive card I will suggest but it provides haste for HH and allows a second use of his ability. Very powerful here.

There are several more damage doubling cards you can include: Overblaze , Dictate of the Twin Gods , Furnace of Rath , Gratuitous Violence

Inferno Titan , Kamahl, Pit Fighter , and Shivan Gorge let you manipulate the life totals of your opponents. Getting everyone at an even number and turning HH sideways to kill the table feels great.

Finally, not a deck suggestion, but a warning. If you play with the same group of people consistently you may find yourself getting hated out of games pretty early on because of the instant death pressure you present. This was ultimately why I stopped playing and eventually dismantled my HH deck.

Best of luck, hope this was helpful.
