Furnace of Rath Discussion

seshiro_of_the_orochi thank you for the advice!
Originally, I had planned to have Nekusar, the Mindrazer as my commander, but then I accidentally found Kess, Dissident Mage on www.scryfall.com lol, and completely changed my theme to a wheel+spellslinger combo deck, which works really well when you can re-cast cards like Shadow of the Grave
I do like Underworld Dreams , however, it is more of a pick your poison if I have Hullbreacher out. My original questionable idea with Furnace of Rath was that it works very well with Guttersnipe , Cruel Ultimatum or in general any attack.
I could agree with everything else, and don't even know if I will throw in a Fiery Emancipation or Furnace of Rath . I do not own this deck yet, I actually printed this entire thing out about a week ago and had some of the cards, but plan to slowly buy the cards for it replacing the proxies. Thank You again!

Ok, do you own this in paper or does "Dream Deck" mean this is where you want to end up? No matter what, that's one hell of a deck, for sure. You did a very good job building this.
There's one card that seems off: Furnace of Rath seems like it could be more harmful than helpful for you. The fact it also doubles damage from opposing sources to you and your permanents as well seems very risky here. As budget doesn't seem to be a problem (correct or not?), Fiery Emancipation might be better here. At least it only counts your damage.
Nekusar, the Mindrazer would be a great inclusion (and maybe even a better commander, if maybe a little obvious). The same goes for Fate Unraveler and Underworld Dreams . Bag of Holding is a fun card, but it propably doesn't fit the rest of the deck power-level-wise. Finally, there's Bone Miser as somewhat of another copy of Waste Not .

A few suggestions. I think you probably want to run at least 35 lands in order to keep the deck running consistently. You've got some decent ramp, and all the extra draw will help, but missing land drops sucks.
You might consider the damage doublers and tripler available in red Dictate of the Twin Gods , Furnace of Rath affect everyone, Gratuitous Violence or Inquisitor's Flail work for your commander, but the best would be Angrath's Marauders or Fiery Emancipation (!triple damage!) Since they only affect you and work for all your damage sources.
Stormfist Crusader is more of what you've got.
What to cut to make room for that stuff is kind of up to you but I think Game Plan , Grixis Charm , Dimir Charm , and Spectacle Mage would all be candidates for me.
Cool deck though and pretty reasonably priced for how effective it looks like it could be.

Krosan Grip , Vandalblast , Chaos Warp , and Song of the Dryads are other good removal spells. Dictate of the Twin Gods and Furnace of Rath really good in basically any big combat deck like Xenagos. For more green and red staples, Defense of the Heart , Tooth and Nail , Craterhoof Behemoth , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Gamble , Heroic Intervention and Aggravated Assault .

mono red burn is very different in edh compared to 60 card format
its more about tax's and multipliers in order for it to be consistently lethal against 3 players with 40+ life
think Manabarbs , Impact Tremors , Electrostatic Field & Torbran, Thane of Red Fell , Jaya, Venerated Firemage , Furnace of Rath
wereotter is correct about the normal mono red creature removal not being as effective in commander but thats why the multipliers are necessary

You got to take advantage of what boros gives you to be aggressive. The biggest thing boros gives you that no other color pairing gives you is extra combats. Take advantage of that with cards like Combat Celebrant, Aurelia, the Warleader, World at War, Scourge of the Throne, Seize the Day, Savage Beating, Relentless Assault, Moraug, Fury of Akoum, Waves of Aggression, Response / Resurgence, Breath of Fury Hellkite Charger, Aggravated Assault, Fury of the Horde and Port Razer. Along with that you need to speed up the damage output. Boros gives you damage doublers, with cards like Fiendish Duo, Goblin Goliath, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Insult, Furnace of Rath, Gratuitous Violence, Dictate of the Twin Gods, Curse of Bloodletting, Bitter Feud, Angrath's Marauders, Overblaze, Inquisitor's Flail, and Fiery Emancipation.
Also consider other things boros gives you that will speed up damage like double strike. Boros gives you haste, trample, and evasion. You need to consider all of those. All while staying low on curve and fast in ramp. If you do this you'll have a good aggro deck.

They each choose individually, though in the case you listed, there's no choice to be made. Sizzle deals 5 damage to each opponent, as Gratuitous Violence only effects damage dealt by creatures.
A good way to look at this is what the effects are doing. Let's say you have Torbran and Furnace of Rath out. They say that when damage would be dealt to an player you add two/double it. This is replacing damaging a single player (don't worry, it still applies to each of them), it's not replacing the whole "3 damage to each opponent." If Torbran said "If a red source you control would deal damage to one or more opponents and/or permanents they control..." it may work differently, but the rules would likely need to be updated to support such formatting.
