Blue Green is still the strongest, no doubt. There is still a Legacy legal infinite squirrel engine because of Intruder Alarm + Argothian Elder + Squirrel Nest. Then add counterspells and card advantage to infinite mana and infinite squirrels.
Anything else you would be playing for fun or thematic reasons. As you mentioned FOW and card advantage gives you a shell for most anything.

Adding Red lets the deck get another way of winning by adding direct damage ability to the deck.
You put all your squirrel cards in that you want to use, right? For example; 4x Squirrel Mob, 4x Deep Forest Hermit, 4x Deranged Hermit and 4x Druid's Call. You can also use the wrangler and excavator, also any of the other squirrel cards like Squirrel Nest. Since you are also in Red, you then also get to play Burn cards,riot cards and anything in the Gruul family. Adding cards like Goblin Bombardment, Fling and Volcano Hellion gives an alternate win condition of direct damage. As well as more ways for explosive wins.
For example; Your life total is 20 and so is your opponent's. You have Squirrel Mob in play enchanted with Druid's Call. You also have Goblin Bombardment in play. You also have 4 other squirrels in play. You attack with the 6/6 mob and if you hit you do damage and if they can kill it you use protection to keep it around and if it took damage you get more squirrels and it gets bigger. Let's say they blocked it with a 4/4 and lost their creature and you get 4 more squirrels and now your mob is a 10/10 and you have a total of 8 other squirrels. What you then do is just cast Volcano Hellion targeting your Squirrel Mob in play enchanted with Druid's Call announcing any amount of damage you like. Let's say you announce 9. You and the mob both take 9 pts of damage. This creates 9 more squirrels bringing your squirrel count to 17. Your mob is now 19/19 and you have 17 squirrels to either sacrifice to goblin bombardment shooting your opponent in the face for 17 or wait and just attack with your mob again. If you put the right kind of protection for your creatures like stuff to make them indestructible or versions of giant growth you can name higher amounts of damage with the hellion and get even more creatures. Or just cast Fling, Soul's Fire or even Chandra's Ignition.
I didnt have anything solid in mind, just thinking of two color decks that would let squirrels put some hurt on people.

I am not going to close this as threads requesting for new hubs are fairly common (that said, OP should include a specific request to include a new hub).
However, I am going to go out on a limb and say that squirrels will not be given a hub anytime soon. Beyond the Squirrel Nest + Earthcraft infinite combo and Unstable, squirrels really do not see much play outside of the rare meme deck. They are going to need a lot more support before they become hub-worthy.

VampDemigod, Can you help me break Averna? In a lands sense, something like tons of lands and Maelstrom Wanderer and some cascaders and maybe Earthcraft + Squirrel Nest. I figure it would be a fun glass cannon deck and sick when it worked. What do you think?

I encountered a Squirrel Nest deck of all things. It had a bunch of other enchantments including Worship, Mirri's Guile, and Beastmaster Ascension. True jank. But we split games though. Jank sometimes plays on a different axis. I said to someone “A Standard deck is going to shrug off your Chalices and Null Rods.” That isn’t to demean or diminish the deck. Hey! Whatever wins wins and I’m on a quest to find the winningest winner. You get tunnel vision on the format and eventually someone’s gonna come right up to your face, look at it, and give it a solid whack. So I’m sitting on Mindbreak Trap and Misdirection while he’s being me with his 5/6 Birds of Paradise. But it was a split so I got my scalp too.

Thanks for the suggestions kingtuf
I've made some additions and cuts as well as tracked down the elusive 100th card, though not sure what it actually was!
Previously did run Dreadhorde but it got cut, would definitely consider Bitterblossom in the 100 so will look to pick that up. I've added my own pet card in the same vein as Hornet Nest, Squirrel Nest, I love that card so had to include!
I've cut a couple of the ETB token generators replacing with static enchantments which should provide more value over time, Awakening Zone.
Took your advice on cutting the mana dorks, my thoughts behind them were they are a little faster than ramp spells and can also be used as sac fodder later on. In replacement I've added Kodama's Reach and a couple of recurable sac targets in Bloodsoaked Champion and Squee, the Immortal
Finally I cut Priest of Forgotten Gods and some other bits and bobs that I felt were strong but a little on the slow side. Added in Dictate of Erebos which I think is nuts and a few other cards around clue generation and land matters, looking to add Ramunap Excavator when I can pick one up.
Really like your suggestion of more token lads, Dragon Broodmother especially, I'm feeling pretty high on the cards that have constant generation over ETB so will look to get a few in there perhaps dropping Bastion of Remembrance.
Take a look and let me know what you think of the changes!
