Insurrection

Sorcery

Untap all creatures and gain control of them until end of turn. They gain haste until end of turn.

Lhunthane on Birgi

Hey here is some thoughts I have on the deck. The comments are through the lens of trying to be very competitive.

With Birgi, the strongest win condition is storming out and clapping all of your opponent's cheeks in one fell swoop. The best way to achieve this is comboing out as opposed to going for a lot of chip damage. Chip damage by its very nature takes time and is hard to make work in a competitive meta (maybe in some form of stax it could work). Your deck list appears to have its foot in both doors which is fun and cool, but ultimately reduces the overall lethality of the deck.

The problem with mono-red as a top-tier EDH colour is that it is very limited in tutors, which makes it difficult to find your win conditions consistently. To overcome this, a player needs to put in a few win conditions and the ability to dig for them in the deck. You really are on the right track I think with all the cantrip and impulse draw spells. Dragon's Rage Channeler filters like a champ in this deck, and synergizes very well with Past in Flames and Underworld Breach

You have Grapeshot which is great, but if you were to also throw in an Aetherflux Reservoir and Manaform Hellkite you would be set up. Grinning Ignus with Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip gives you infinite storm. Add a Ruby Medallion to turn this into infinite mana, and a Impact Tremors or Altar of the Brood for an additional win con. Also quite funny with Sunbird's Invocation. You can tutor for the Ingus pretty reliably with Imperial Recruiter and Flamekin Harbinger.


So I realize this is turning into a small essay so I'll try to keep it a little briefer.

If you take the path of trying to combo, some cuts I'd make because they either are clunky, work towards a different win con, or just don't generate a ton of value are: Insurrection Captain Lannery Storm Quakebringer Toralf, God of Fury  Flip Blindblast Traitorous Blood Experimental Frenzy

If you are going to all-in commit to just combing off with ingus (which I think you should) also consider cutting: Sulfuric Vortex Stigma Lasher Solphim, Mayhem Dominus Torbran, Thane of Red Fell Mechanized Warfare

I can talk on and on and on about theory for this deck so just hit me up if you want more insight. You know what you're doing, so obviously ignore me if this "deck primer" doesn't suit you at all!

Breath of Fury, also anything that gives you extra combat turns.

Insurrection

Mass control is ridiculously powerful with the avatar side. Hard for me to believe how little I see of: Mob Rule, Insurrection etc.. Swinging opponents creatures then saccing them to the blood av. Causes some amazing blowouts

Nice, only thing I would add is Insurrection is a double blowout

Ammonzy I put Grand Warlord Radha in there. I think Aggravated Assault and Insurrection will both be good additions, I just need to find them. Goblin Lackey and Warren Instigator are both fun and could help, i'm just not sure what to switch out for them.

Mob Rule & Insurrection are incredible with this commander

Molten Echoes is awesome with Flameshadow Conjuring being a downgrade. Id keep M.E but not use Flameshadow. Grand Warlord Radha is always nice for big mana in token decks. You could replace Mana Geyser for her, maybe?

Usually through my experience, the biggest weakness of decks is we'll lack card advantage by shooting our load super fast since we always have so much mana and then have an empty hand lol

Although Insurrection costs 1 more , its a massive upgrade over Mob Rule. Naturally the difference is $8 vs less than a $1 if budget is a thing

You could use Aggravated Assault instead to give you infinite combat potential when paired with Grand Warlord Radha

What, no Insurrection? Guess that would single-handedly double the $$ cost of the deck, though.
