Torbran, Thane of Red Fell
Legendary Creature — Dwarf Noble
If a red source you control would deal damage to an opponent or a permanent an opponent controls, it deals that much damage plus 2 instead.
Torbran, Thane of Red Fell Discussion
1 day ago
Torbran, Thane of Red Fell is my favorite deck right now. I've found it very hard to keep him out, as I run more 'all creatures' damage. He's also super hungry for mana.
I like to run Pyrohemia and Sword of Fire and Ice / Sword of Sinew and Steel to protect him. My favorite play ever with Torbran is having him, Repercussion , and Pyrohemia out. Paying a red to do 3 damage to each opposing creature and 5 damage to each opponent for each creature they control is nasty, and you only do 1 damage to you and your creatures each time. Those are the kinda things that make this deck so fun, it's just not very consistent. Maybe you've had better luck?
I've had good luck with Embermaw Hellion . Having another source of additive damage has been valuable on multiple occasions, but I go heavy into the doubling effects too with Furnace of Rath and Dictate of the Twin Gods .
Today is a good day.
I definitely expected the first incarnation of this deck to play more as burn and was surprised by the stax-y vibe it has in practice.
I took a pretty hard turn from single target spells like Lightning Bolt . I haven't run into too many hard choices between hitting everything or keeping my board, but I run less creatures. There have definitely been times I've /wanted/ to have a single target spell.
Anywho, awesome deck and I hope it does well for you. I'm definitely going to see what cards I could see playing from yours that I'm not in my own.

Kenrith, the Returned King -- Now the de-facto pick for 5-color commander-outlet-agnostic infinite mana strategies. Powerful and versatile, Kenrith can helm a lot of builds and his large cost is carried by his general flexibility with the adaptability and raw strength of the 5 color card pool.
On his comparison to Thrasios: it is the case that Thrasios + partner as an infinite mana outlet may lend an unfavorable comparison to Kenrith in a broad, general sense. Thrasios in a tier above denotes this difference sufficiently. However, there are applications in which one would want to build with all 5 colors, and Kenrith remains strong enough to compete at the top of the metagame.
There is still a lot of room to brew and optimize Kenrith. As dominant builds emerge, the featured lists will update to reflect this.

Chulane, Teller of Tales -- Chulane represents an incredible amount of value and offers Bant not-yet-before-seen access to concise win conditions, such as Village Bellringer, Food Chain, and Aluren. Some weaknesses to boardwipes and a lack of access to black tutors.
http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/chulane-cia/ by Spleenface
Emry, Lurker of the Loch -- Emry is powerful and consistent as an engine in the Command Zone, but lacks accessible, susinct win conditions on artifacts. Struggles with losing to Null Rod, Cursed Totem, and grave hate. This is an optimistic tentative placement.
Build to be posted.
Korvold, Fae-Cursed King -- Korvold has proven quite strong as a value engine and wincon outlet rolled into one. Immense synergies with Dockside Extortionist. An outlet for Food Chain. Synergies with fetches and a host of win conditions.

Alela, Artful Provocateur -- Alela is in a powerful color combination and sets up well for a stax-centric long game. Compares unfavorably to other competitive Esper options.
Ayara, First of Locthwain -- A Blood Artist with a value engine stapled to it can power mono-black combos reasonably well.
Gadwick, the Wizened -- Infinite mana in mono-blue, though not the best at the role.
Torbran, Thane of Red Fell -- Quite potent, though burn in a 120 life game is always an uphill battle.
Syr Carah, the Bold -- Storms out powerfully and keeps the board clear. Inconsistent wincons and high fizzle chance on a given storm turn.
Syr Konrad, the Grim -- An extremely powerful commander with strong Necropotence and infect synergies. Gated by color identity for interaction and support.
Grumgully, the Generous -- A bit janky and of questionable finite value.
Questing Beast -- Combat-oriented.
Rankle, Master of Pranks -- High value; no clear wincon. Possibly decent reanimator commander. Tentative pessimistic placement.
Syr Elenora, the Discerning -- No clear wincons; slow value.
Syr Faren, the Hengehammer -- Combat-oriented, though reasonably strong for its context.
Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale -- Very expensively costed. Pushed toward tribal.
Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig -- Combat-oriented.
Linden, the Steadfast Queen -- Mono-white and very low impact. Combat-oriented.
Syr Alin, the Lion's Claw -- Mono-white and expensive for yield. Combat-oriented.
Yisan, the Wanderer Bard - Maximum to Competitive
Yisan continues to be a strong competitive pick, but has been pushed out of the top meta with the increase in speed wrought by Hulk (which he does not interact with particularly well) and being sideswiped by Hulk hate such as Grafdigger's cage. As a niche, he preys on staxxy strategies that have moved out of favor for not interacting with Hulk and Consult optimally.
Pir & Toothy - High to Competitive
P&T have demonstrated a strong amount of value and good tools to be played successfully in the competitive environment. Toothy's flicker synergies are difficult to interact with profitably and offer a lot of power in combo-control oriented games.
Grenzo, Dungeon Warder - High to Competitive
Dockside offers powerful new Doomsday lines to Grenzo, who can also layer Worldgorger. With this addition it moves back to competing with the other Competitive Level Rakdos commanders in power.

Deathtouch for your commander, carddraw in artifacts is the way to go & Torban as crazy

If you're having problems finding answers then don't cut Gamble :) It's one of red best cards to actually find an answer by tutoring for it. Dualcaster Mage , Reverberate and Reiterate are helpful in multiplayer Commander because they can copy an opponents tutor.
Tectonic Reformation is an underrated red card for draw. One thing mono red has a lot of are Mountains and getting flooded happens. Reformation turns extra Mountains into draws. Repeatable cycling of lands for each is very good. I also suggest adding all the low mana cost draw in red: Faithless Looting , Light Up the Stage , Thrill of Possibility , Tormenting Voice , Wild Guess .
This draw/discard can help to find answers and be enablers for Feldon of the Third Path who can be good repeatable value in red especially with creatures such as Magus of the Wheel , Solemn Simulacrum . Torbran, Thane of Red Fell makes each red source do more damage which equals more life loss which makes more mana with Neheb. Comet Storm and Chaos Warp are pretty much a staple cards for mono red.

A little update
Who needs board wipe when you can player wipe :)
In all seriousness, I realize there plenty of ways to end that, but if/when it goes off it should be fun!

The Magic Mirror goes well with your strategy, and Torbran, Thane of Red Fell turns every draw into a bolt. The triple mana isn't asking for too much since you deal with the same problem with your commander. If you really want to draw, then Arjun, the Shifting Flame and Mindmoil will get you more draw than anything else you could dream of.

I kinda like the move of Impact Tremors with Torbran, Thane of Red Fell plus Purphorous, God of The Forge to burn your way to victory. Secure the Wastes is very nice along with Gideon, Ally of Zendikar .
