Red Elemental Blast
Choose one - Counter target blue spell; or destroy target blue permanent.

Lim-Dul's Vault - Solid card for searching your deck for a specific card. Red Elemental Blast - Cheap blue counter spell or blue permanent destruction if your pod has a lot of blue players. Tergrid, God of Fright Flip - replace Sheoldred, Whispering One as tergrid combos better with your commanders ETB effect. while getting you advantage to boot.

I don't have the list, but I know someone who runs Jaya Ballard, Task Mage with color changing effects, and it's decently powerful.
It's usually a turn 1/2 Jaya into Painter's Servant (From tutors) with Red Elemental Blast style effects backing it up. They start blowing up multiple permanents a turn until they can just win though damage while we do nothing.
It definitely gets worse with more players though

I am a fellow Zada enjoyer, and I like what you've got going on in your aggressive list! My list is a little more combo-focused, but I have a couple card suggestions that still might translate well to yours.
Mirrorwing Dragon: It's just a second copy of Zada. Not many EDH decks can say they have multiple versions of their general. Opponents will often hate Zada out of the game by repeatedly countering or killing it. While I see you do have cards to counteract this like Red Elemental Blast and Reverberate, having the Dragon available if Zada gets too expensive to recast is awesome, and it also dissuades opponents from trying to use single-target removal on it.
Treasonous Ogre: A slam-dunk mono red accelerator. Zada can make more use of the red mana than most other generals of the same type by cycling through cards so effectively, and going down to a single-digit life total is worth it if you can kill the whole table like Zada can. Will end the game if not dealt with.
Anax, Hardened in the Forge: A newer addition to my list, but has proven itself to be incredibly valuable as a form of boardwipe protection, instantly rebuilding your board. My list does have a higher number of creature cards, so it may not be an auto-include for you, but it still might be worth a test run.
Reality Scramble: An incredibly fun card to effectively convert your tokens into multiple creatures from your deck, potentially all of them with enough tokens in play. Again, may not be an auto-include for your current list since you have a Goblin subtheme. This card also gets much better if you have Mirrorwing Dragon in your list; you would be sacrificing Zada but potentially replacing it with a bigger Zada. I also personally run a couple creature-based infinites involving Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, so a well-timed Reality Scramble can end the game. Regardless, it's a unique effect that Zada can take advantage of.
If you feel like taking a look at my own brew for Zada and gathering some ideas, see here: Zada, Miracle Worker

enough delve and graveyarded spells and Murktide Regent becomes real good

elliotmward97: So I actually used to run Red Elemental Blast, Pyroblast, Tibalt's Trickery and Withering Boon but didn't feel I was getting enough mileage out of them. Imp's Mischief and Deflecting Swat are both great in any black and/or red deck, I just don't have a copy of either unfortunately lol.
Hidetsugu, Devouring Chaos is a card I really liked thematically, but in practice just never felt good to draw. Even going infinite with Dockside and Technomancer requires your opponents to have at least seven Enchantments and Artifacts - which totally is gonna happen sometimes, but definitely not all the time.
Chandra, Torch of Defiance is another card I used to run (and quite liked) but got cut for Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast as Daretti just synergized with the deck better. Chandra may yet make it back into the deck, though!
As for cuts, I'm not totally sure but probably Hellkite Tyrant in favour of Ancient Copper Dragon. Tyrant is great but also extremely telegraphed. I'd probably look at Professional Face-Breaker or either Mayhem Devil or Nadier's Nightblade (depending on your playstyle) as a cut for Imperial Recruiter. And although Goblin Welder is a favourite of mine, it's likely on the chopping block if I do pick up a Ragavan.

In your colors there are very few options to save your permanents at instant speed. Imp's Mischief can redirect a spell, Tibalt's Trickery can sometimes work Word of Command can pluck an answer from another player. Those are your most flexible options without including Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast to deal with blue spells. Wild Ricochet is another option as well.
