Rush of Blood Discussion

This is a pretty fun concept, I'm a fan! Big smashy dragons are always fun :). I think Irencrag Feat could help a lot as a way to either slam down your Inferno a turn or two earlier than usual and as a way to generate a ton of red mana to sink into its activated ability. Irencrag Feat with Inferno on the battlefield and Unleash Fury in hand (or Rush of Blood with an extra mana/attack from somewhere else) is enough mana to pump Inferno three times, double its power, and spend the last two mana floating from Irencrag to push its power to twenty! I see Mutagenic Growth in the maybeboard which I'm assuming is to keep this deck budget but it should definitely go into any optimized version of the deck. Pyretic Ritual is also starting to get on the pricy side but would be an excellent inclusion, probably over something like Dragonlord's Servant.

DBCooper Thanks for the upvote and suggestions! Rush of Blood was actually in the list originally, but got cut at the last minute, as far as the equipment goes, I actually thought that the "Whenever it's power becomes 20" clause meant that all of the power needed to come from its ability, and equipment didn't count. But thanks for clearing that up! I will put these in.

This is a cool concept deck.
I feel like the easist method would be to get to 18 and boost twice - the simplest would be +3/+0 from the ability and then double power, costing 13 mana total, or 6 1 turn and 7 the next. Alternatively, ifninite red mana instant wins with the dragon or a way to search for it.
Shuko points to Golem-Skin Gauntlets/Cranial Plating/Nettlecyst. By pairing it with p/t boosts you could have a more reliable threat that happens to combo off if you get it perfect, but it doesn't feel as efficient even if its more reliable. The artifacts theme might be sweet if its paired with treasure tokens or Pentad Prism type effects to power the combo, but it would need some sacrifice effects to make sure you could get back under 20 power in a pinch.
Speaking personally, I'd go for a casual G/R list, with Xenagos, God of Revels/Exponential Growth/Soul's Might and a +1/+1 counters theme with Death's Presence and 'sac for red' creatures like Satyr Hedonist. Its a cool idea for a casual table. Drumhunter is neat.
A second creature that has a cool 'hit big power' ability would be nice - Mossbridge Troll is neat - I might theme around Bloodshot Trainee and Greenhilt Trainee. Minion of the Mighty is a cute intended synergy.

Here are some I use, seperated by category:
Other than that, I run some value cards, like Birgi, God of Storytelling Flip, Storm-Kiln Artist , and Aetherflux Reservoir to just go on, and on, and on, and on, so on and so forth. Plenty of Draw Spells to keep the gas going, and some other Spell-slinging accoutrements.

In my opinion, more pump spells are good for more damage = more survivors. Consider adding some pump spells and if you do, Zada, Hedron Grinder Is broken. Pump spells I suggest would be... Titan's Strength, Blazing Shoal, Reckless Charge,Fatal Frenzy,Rush of Blood, and Rush of Adrenaline.
