Fatal Frenzy is the budget alternative to Berserk and Starstorm for Rolling Earthquake. Cuts a TON of money off the cost of the deck. Plus cutting Ancient Tomb and Prismatic Vista which is crazy expensive.

Love the Chandra tribal.

The Flame of Keld and Akki Lavarunner  Flip are some extra damage cards to think about.

Fanning the Flames is a repeatable damage effect. Shattering Pulse doesn't do damage like Smash to Smithereens, but the buyback might be worth the damage. Vandalblast is another consideration. Subterranean Tremors is also fun.

Light Up the Stage seems like it might be cheap card draw.

With all the rituals Fall of the Titans might make for a good finisher to go along with Comet Storm

To add to your sweepers you may like Starstorm.

Grind on Torbran EDH

cool deck! i am building a new mono red edh deck and i found some cards in your list i may use.
my thoughts, Lightning Bolt over Slaying Fire?
also i am very psyched about the new Thrill of Possibility! it is like an instant speed Tormenting Voice, what is not to like. i think it is auto-include in every mono red edh deck.
also Starstorm and Magmaquake are also options.
also i know it is terrible but i always liked the idea of running Urza's Armor but i just cant justify the 6 cmc. but it would make Pyrohemia soo good!
also maybe Mana Geyser? idk
and i would run Rummaging Goblin and/or Faithless Looting over Merchant of the Vale.
finally i usually run like 37 lands at least. sometimes i get flooded but its nice to hit those land drops and avoid situation #3

hope my thoughts are helpful keep having fun!! cheers

Nekusar without creatures can work, though we would not recommend it because many creatures out there will enhance the power of his abilities a great, great deal. Then there's the many creatures that will punish your opponents for discarding that you will also not be able to use.

However, if you are truly set on keeping this deck creature-less, we would recommend the following cards to force your opponents to draw more cards:

To prevent the loss of your cards when you discard yourself, you could add Library of Leng ; it's wonderful. Speaking of discarding, we would also definitely recommend cards that cause some major pains for opponents in cases that they have to discard. Some ideas:

Last but not least, some more anti-creature ideas:

Some cards we would definitely cut in favour of the cards mentioned above would be:

  • Bolas's Citadel ; not so good in this deck as it includes too few life-gain opportunities to compensate. Also expensive to cast.
  • As Foretold ; free stuff is great, but your deck contains plenty of ramp so we doubt you really need this.
  • Future Sight ; becomes a bit redundant in a deck with this many draw opportunities.
  • Leyline of Anticipation ; we do not see a good reason for this to be in here; the additions we have suggested will be most likely be more valuable to your strategy in the long run.
  • Mind Over Matter ; really not worth it in a creature-less deck.
  • Omniscience ; same reason for why we would cut As Foretold . Moreover, this card is so expensive to cast.

Have fun with the brew.

Wow, this thread really exploded. Thanks for all the suggestions. Going to take me awhile to narrow down what I want... Though casting a one sided Starstorm in the middle of combat just seems like a hilariously good time to me griffstick. An extra thanks for that idea.

In addition to running Iroas, God of Victory and all the above cards you also run Starstorm , Fault Line , and Magmaquake and cast them after you attacked and while you are still in combat to create a one sided board wipe
