Furnace of Rath
If a source would deal damage to a creature or player, it deals double that damage to that creature or player instead.

Torbran is a replacement effect, so no trigger goes on the stack with him. It's the same with any other damage increasers like Fiery Emancipation, Furnace of Rath, Angrath's Marauders, etc. Veyran, Voice of Duality could work pretty well with things like Exalted Flamer of Tzeentch, Electrostatic Field, Thermo-Alchemist, and any other things that allow you to ping for one damage any time you cast an instant or sorcery, though.

Some pretty straight forward 1 for 1 swaps with better cards. Trying to add a little more interaction into the deck with cards such as Curse of the Cabal, Lethal Vapors, Neheb and Crypt Rats. Ob Nixilis looks interesting and is in there to test as well.

With Dungeons & Dragons: Baldur's Gate on the horizon, I found a card that looks sneakily fun to be placed into the deck: Descent into Avernus! I am hopeful this card has a few functions:
- The benefits it brings to our opponents has some political benefits
- The treasures help with our own mana ramp
- It brings the pain with some amplify combo pieces on the board such as Obosh, the Preypiercer or Furnace of Rath.
This will replace Pain Magnification for testing.

Gratuitous Violence, Furnace of Rath, Dictate of the Twin Gods, and Fiery Emancipation type effects are fun with Torbran. Underworld Breach is also a nice way to re-use some of your instants and sorceries for a turn. While this is pretty low to the ground, I'd still try to put more ramp in it. Arcane Signet, Coldsteel Heart, Fire Diamond, Worn Powerstone, and Thought Vessel are good options for mono-colored. Endless Atlas is also a good draw engine for mono-colored decks.

MagicMarc: Rakdos with lifegain lol I like the idea just bc it's unusual. Preypiecer would be interesting with lifelink creatures. Especially lifelinked creatures pumped by Unspeakable Symbol. Though I suppose Furnace of Rath would suffice with Mogis as the commander.
Been exploring other options too. Willowdusk, Essence Seer caught my eye. Could make it revolve around evasive lifelink creatures and Vito effects. Pay lots of life say to a Wall of Blood or Murderous Betrayal, Lurking Evil, Unspeakable Symbol, Phyrexian Processor ect. Gain it all back when you slap the +1/+1 counters on a lifelink critter and swing. Needs more of a setup with Willowdusk and the cards are all playable with just Vito (with his effect). Essence Harvest and Rite of Consumption would be hilarious includes. Add Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord for giggles. I even thought of running Jarad at the helm. With a lifegain suite and Wall of Blood, Jarad can one shot the table. Ntm there are so many ways to tutor for WoB in golgari. Unspeakable Symbol works great with him too. I'm sure there are more examples with Jarad but I have yet to look into it.
Thanks yet again! Though I may just brew that Rakdos deck as it's intriguing as is Jarad with a lifegain twist.

seshiro_of_the_orochi, when you say it wouldn't pass the vanilla test, what do you mean by that? What is the vanilla test?
My thoughts were that the way the deck is run is mostly instant / sorcery spells for effects; counterspells, cantrips, targeted burn or bounce, etc. You'd basically play hard and fast and force the boardstate to grow with 1/1, 2/2 and maybe even 3/3 sharks. Occasionally you may drop a 7mv spell for a huge 7/7. Note, Cyclonic Rift only nets you a 2/2.
The real, I would say "wincon" is in the tap ability. Imagine you have 5x Sharks in total and you activate him. Nice, 5 damage. Whatever, not too bad.
Rings of Brighthearth copies it for an additional 5 damage.
Illusionist's Bracers can copy it, so can Lithoform Engine and some others. Strionic Resonator can copy the first triggered ability; So if you cast a spell such as Cryptic Command, you'd normally get a 4/4 Shark token. With Resonator, you can make a second 4/4 Shark.
Shark Typhoon gets you even more Sharks, and these ones have Flying! :D
Want some more?! Spark Double and Sakashima of a Thousand Faces and Helm of the Host and others to bypass the legendary rule, making you get tons of Sikozen for tons of stackable Shark triggers, blowing up that activated ability!
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE
Clone Legion would net you a huge fucking 9/9 AND would DOUBLE EVERY SINGLE SHARK TOKEN IN PLAY -- AND, omg AND because the trigger is on the CAST of Clone Legion, your beefy 9/9 boi is in play when it resolves, GETTING YOU A SECOND 9/9!!!
And we haven't even BEGUN to talk about untap spells!!
Have 5x Sharks? Boom, tap for damage. Untap, BOOM GET A SHARK AND TAP FOR MOAR DAMAGE - This time 6x Sharks are seen!
Seriously this deck could go off-the-walls with interactions, and I love it so much <3
I'm probably going to build Sikozen this weekend and hope I can find a group that let's me run him :D

king-saproling, You're probably right about the chaos cards. I'm not really sold on it, it's just something I thought would work out given Endless Whisper making my board harder to get rid of, Insurrection and Furnace of Rath are there to close out games since Revel in Riches and Mechanized Production are easy to counter and obvious to win.
