If you're looking for some mean flavor, then my second favorite card of all time Blood Moon is fantastic!

Also, I always recommend at least 1-2 boardwipes in ANY deck, some of my favorites in R/G:

Blasphemous Act 10/10

Chain Reaction 10/10

Chandra's Ignition 8/10

Monstrous Onslaught 7/10

@Wolffang988 Thanks for the +1 and the comment and it is indeed nice to find another Konosuba fan :)

I have considered Chandra's Ignition before but it just has some downsides compared to the sac outlets or Soulblast. I can't use Chandra's Ignition at instant speed like the others and its more easily countered, which doesn't matter to Soulblast because I still get all the death triggers even if it's countered.

Love everything about this and it’s always fun to see another Konosuba fan! Have you thought about running Chandra's Ignition? Would go well with the “EXPLOSION!!” theme, hitting everyone for 5 off of Megumin/Omnath and killing the other elementals for a surprise kill!

You've taken a much different approach than my Brion deck; I love to see how variable he is. I would take Chandra's Ignition off your maybeboard and into the mainboard replacing Evra, Halcyon Witness. Evra is 6 mana to play, 4 mana to make big, then 1 mana to fling with Brion for a total of 11. That's too much for what it does. You'll never be upset with Chandra's Ignition; I think it's an auto include.

I do really love your inclusion of Angelic Renewal though. Even if it can only be used once, it's super cheap, and you get to choose what creature it happens on.

Thanks for the suggestions. Yes, it's a bit of a chaotic deck. I sought to integrate multiple themes and lots of ideas, so an apparent lack of focus was pretty much inevitable. I haven't had issues with the deck not working, though.

First, the suggested cuts:

While Pillardrop Warden and Cogwork Archivist might be a little less efficient than other options, they are a bit more flexible in how they are used. The archivist is useful if I want to put Glimpse of Tomorrow back into my library They both also have reach.

Tavern Scoundrel and Witch's Oven are good ways to sacrifice something that might otherwise be exiled, stolen, or temporary. I can sacrifice Homura, Human Ascendant  Flip to flip him or gain control of an artifact with Confusion in the Ranks. It's a useful effect to have access to.

Mishra's Self-Replicator is a good mutate target, and I can trigger it fairly easily.

Delina, Wild Mage can copy Legendaries. I could run Helm of the Host for this effect, but this is what I am using for now.

Avarice Totem disrupts plays and scales extremely well in the late game. It can be tutored with Urza's Saga as well.

Chandra's Ignition is a solid asymmetrical board wipe, and good for clearing away pesky utility creatures.

Second, your suggestions:

I have a few options for more draw that I'm already thinking about, and utility lands are something I can easily play around with. I eventually need to add my Treasure Vault and Goblin Welder to the deck, but they are tied up in other decks at the moment. I think impulse draw isn't ideal for this deck. If I end up exiling Glimpse of Tomorrow because I can't cast or suspend it.

The whole time I was listening to the episode I kept thinking of Chandra's Ignition, seems like a slam dunk.

So what is the goal of this deck? Is this sort of a chaos/token deck? I can see the skeleton of the strategy, but I also see theft, pirates, and burn. My main suggestion would be try to trim some of the out of place cards. Thoughts on things to include/remove regarding the token/chaos strategy:

Possible additions:

Trailblazer's Boots or Prowler's Helm - low mana investments that let Ragavan be nearly unblockable. I currently don't see that many ways that allow Ragavan to get through late game.

You run enough pirates that Breeches, Brazen Plunderer might be worth it

Ardent Elementalist is a new card that is the red version of Archaeomancer

Curse of Opulence - easy tokens and mana

There are a fair number of goblins that come with tokens so I would look into some of those

Rionya, Fire Dancer for temporary token copies for your best creatures

I see very little in the form of card advantage so you might consider things like Light Up the Stage, Ignite the Future, Faithless Looting, Mask of Memory, etc.

Some utility lands like: Treasure Vault, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Myriad Landscape, Kher Keep, Buried Ruin, Dormant Volcano, and Maze of Ith or Thaumatic Compass  Flip/Spires of Orazca

Possible cuts (most of these are odd fits or just inefficient cards that have better alternatives):

Pillardrop Warden, Cogwork Archivist, Witch's Oven, Tavern Scoundrel, Mishra's Self-Replicator, Delina, Wild Mage, Avarice Totem, Chandra's Ignition (great card, but not at it's best in this deck).

Overall I like the deck idea, I just feel it needs a little more focus. +1 from me.

This is a sweet deck. May I recommend Tome of Legends, Scrap Trawler and Breya's Apprentice as ways to get extra cards? I find myself running out of steam often in red/white without some sort of card engine, and these help immensely. I've never seen Rupture before, and it looks like a sweet addition. If it's good, Chandra's Ignition has also done work for me.
