Feel the same about them in any color :) -- A waste of time. I like spells that repurpose other spells & keep the game going... Just not in the direction the original caster intended. Same reason I'm still cool with Narset's Reversal

Grubbernaut to me Deflecting Swat feels very . It doesn't cancel action.. it reallocates it. Also, there is a whole bunch of precedent for that effect. Off the top of my head Bolt Bend, Shunt & several others that I would have to look up.

"If you have played out your hand, then you are winning the game."
do you even understand what a glass cannon is ? or are you just prone to instantly becoming offended because you don't understand and have to result to insults.
1st of all if you were not playing a glass cannon deck you would have access to cards like Red Elemental Blast, Pyroblast, Deflecting Swat, Bolt Bend, Ricochet Trap, Burnout, Fork, Reverberate, Reiterate, Fury Storm so you wouldn't be such a pussy about opponents having counter spells
2nd of all a real red player would already have Jeska's Will, Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip, & Faithless Looting before considering Wheel of Fortune

i do have to admit though your comment about me being a shit-fly does seem fitting because what else do you expect your shit deck to attract

Profet93, happy to hear!

To answer your further questions:

  1. As the deck stands, the early/faster ramp is rewarding for my meta, as it can explode into big damage while people are still setting up. Admittingly, it can sometimes get tripped up, but the dorks aren't usually the reason for that. If people interrupt draw or remove a beater at the right moment, that's more likely to mess the gameplan up. That being said, Deflecting Swat, Bolt Bend, and other redirection/protection effects are absolutely vital.
  2. Noxious Revival is usually used as a self recursion. I usually prioritize Greater Good, Sneak Attack, Selvala, or another key card. It's certainly not a vital card, just a pet card I usually sprinkle into most of my green decks.
  3. Shadowspear is a trample enabler primarily. The lifelink is gravy and the activated ability can surprise some people. Since the activation can be done at any time, it can also be a political tool.

Definitely considered Bolt Bend , commandeer is nice because it's actually free, which is nice because the deck is mana hungry but doesn't have a problem with number of cards. Strange thing is that commandeer is actually already out, not sure what i added in its place though

Suggestions:

Remove:

1x Tangle Wire

1x Bolt Bend Is this ever reduced for your commander?

1x Changeling Berserker

1x Drakuseth, Maw of Flames

1x Taurean Mauler It's okay but sort of unnecessary. Can have an artifact dwarf instead.

1x Torbran, Thane of Red Fell Useless in your deck, replace with a 1 mana dwarf.

1x By Force

1x Shattering Spree

1x Wheel of Misfortune Really unreliable, especially if all 4 players still playing.

1x Akroma's Memorial You shouldn't win by combat.

1x Illusionist's Bracers One use of commander should be more than enough to win.

1x Dwarven Thaumaturgist His effect is irrelevent.

1x Mycosynth Lattice Mana fixing for opponents, how generous.

1x Rings of Brighthearth see Illusionist's Bracers above

Add:

1x Clock of Omens Primary wincon, and at instant speed.

1x Dwarven Grunt 1 mana dwarves

1x Dwarven Scorcher 1 mana dwarves

1x Dwarven Trader 1 mana dwarves

1x Enslaved Dwarf 1 mana dwarves

1x Liberated Dwarf 1 mana dwarves

1x Proteus Machine Artifact dwarf, slotted for consistency. Unnecessary really, can be replaced with whatever.

1x Feldon of the Third Path Can create an artifact dwarf or maybe pull out a dragon that was discarded/played if game went too long.

1x Dwarven Recruiter Can grab us an artifact dwarf, or whatever deemed necessary. Great with Jeska's Will .

1x Possessed Portal Use if winning and clock of omens has been dealt with or you don't have an artifact dwarf.

1x Daretti, Scrap Savant Good for rummaging or returning an artifact, since you always have a treasure in play. Can be replaced with good card draw.

1x Mystic Forge 1/4 of deck is artifacts. Can also fix dead draws to a certain extent. Can be replaced with good card draw.

1x Herald's Horn Call dwarves every time. Can be replaced with good card draw.

1x Final Fortune Can win out of nowhere. Use only if you are certain you can win. Be careful, highly recommended only if opponents appear tapped out.

Other worthy mentions I don't feel like figuring out how to slot in right now:

Vanquisher's Banner Great draw, and a buff. You can play like half your deck Dwarven Recruiter .

Outpost Siege Solid red card draw.

Commune with Lava Playable red card advantage.

Maze of Ith Use this as a spell slot, not a land slot. Can untap your own dwarves, or be used defensively.

Shatterskull Smashing  Flip Removal or land.

Scrying Sheets all your lands are snow for whatever reason, so could be okay if you have nothing else to cast in a turn.

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle with all these mountains, why not?

Command Beacon In case people kill your 1 toughness commander too many times.

Darksteel Citadel More artifacts. ONLY PUT IF you don't have color problems.

Flamekin Village Not sure if haste is important enough, but something to consider.

Hanweir Battlements  Flip More haste.

Inventors' Fair gives you health, but more importantly can tutor an artifact.

Madblind Mountain If you end up with a lot of top deck shenanigans.

Labyrinth of Skophos If you're being attacked.

Kher Keep Chump blockers.

Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep Might help seem more intimidating early game?

Sequestered Stash Can return an artifact to your DECK, and then commander can grab it.

Sea Gate Wreckage If you run out of cards and have colorless mana sources.

Quicksand Can dissuade attackers

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Big mana

Myriad Landscape Ramp

Mouth of Ronom If you still have too many snow lands.

XinZhao I like Reverberate in the deck because of it's versatility, I will have to evaluate cards like Bolt Bend for protection because my playgroup has definitely become keen that they can die on any given turn against Neheb.

Fair enough, Id try to find room for a little more life gain but thats up too, personally i'd opt for Liesa, Shroud of Dusk she provides the lifelink and a little bit of stax on top of it, should get good mileage out of it since this is a midrange deck.

Glad you are enjoying Deflecting Swat card is op probably should have never been printed, Bolt Bend is the only other card like it if you find you want an additional affect like Deflecting Swat
