For my own Zedruu deck, I found more so than giving away nasty bombs, I did better to draw into more answer and bigger threats by giving away garbage. Things that are neither a benefit to the person I give them to nor are they explicitly going to hurt them. They're just kind of there drawing me extra cards.

If you're interested, some cards that went this route include: Darksteel Relic, Sphere of the Suns, Transmogrifying Wand, Pentad Prism, Weapon Rack, Marit Lage's Slumber (at least if you're in a group with people not running snow lands), Absolute Grace. Also you could run a few other effects that give themselves away like Humble Defector, Perplexing Chimera, Shuriken, and Chromeshell Crab. Also another newer meaner card to give away to maybe consider is Fires of Invention since it will limit when and how many spells an opponent can play.

I have gotten to play a few games with the deck at its current build. One I came in second and another I won. There are some interesting interactions. The deck has proven resilient to board wipes and versatile dealing with opponents. MVP cards have been Seedborn Muse and Vesuvan Shapeshifter .

Seedborn Muse + Havengul Lich + Flash let me pull way ahead after board wipes winning me the game.
Scroll of Fate has proven to be a great way to dodge counter magic for must have creatures like Seedborn Muse . With this deck Scroll of Fate basically reads draw a card and play this card it is uncounterable.
Vesuvan Shapeshifter let me use Chromeshell Crab multiple times to swap 2/2 manifested lands with my opponents beaters.

Makes me wish Prophet of Kruphix was still legal. I think I am going to work on the manabase for now as the next steps.

king-saproling on Pokemon EDH - 111% altered art

4/26/2021 Update - finished Chromeshell Crab (Kingler). This was originally going to be Krabby, but then I saw that the original Kingler pokemon card art fit over the art of Chromeshell Crab perfectly (check out the dude inside Kingler's claw!). So you were right ShaDoWz_6677, Kingler was the better choice haha.

I decided to do the shiny version of Kingler (pale green rather than orangeish red) using metallic acrylic. I figured the shiny version is fitting for a Chromeshell Crab

Also, how is Chromeshell Crab only CRABBY?! Why isn't he KINGLER!

Peer Pressure seems pretty situational at best and pretty bad at worst. Umbral Mantle is a strict upgrade to help with your twiddle combo. unless you play against a lot of mono red Blue Elemental Blast is terrible, red being the worst color in the format that ele blast will whiff a lot i would run something more like these as budget replacements Overwhelming Denial or Narset's Reversal Foil Tale's End Spell Pierce <--- all decent budget counters, narset's reversal and tale's end have a lot of extra uses. Serendib Sorcerer seems ok, but not sure it fits with the rest of your theme. Chromeshell Crab seems a bit overcosted here for this effect and anyone that play against this deck will know in no time what that morph is as you only have 2 morph creatures in the deck and you would likely never play the alchemist face down.
