Notes/Comments
Every single Jaya Ballard piece of flavour text that can go in a mono-R deck is here, no exceptions.... well it would be except I have only just learned tonight that the Eternal Masters Carbonize and Fire Elemental and Karplusan Hound from Dominaria have JB flavour text as well, so I'm gonna have to go find them... Plus of course the Jaya planeswalker that I haven't got my hands on yet. It's a burn deck, and to be honest it's pretty bad. But it can do some busted stuff sometimes too :)

TROGDOR!!!!!

....sorry.

The restriction of keeping all the Jaya cards in makes it really hard to find suggested slots for the other stuff. From the Ashes is another "I don't play with people that think that's OK" card for me. But obviously YMMV.

Yeah, I know :) Stupid flavour getting in the way of good gameplay!

It used to be Ruination, but I never wanted to cast it...

So, for literally no other reason than this is the only deck I purposefully put foils in (I hates them), and because I have a foil Repeating Barrage, I began wondering how to generate infinite (or "sufficiently large") amounts of red mana, since as long as I attacked, if I have infinite mana I can kill the table (sans instant speed graveyard hate).

This deck already has Mana Geyser + Reiterate, and I happen to have a Rings of Brighthearth which I can combo with Basalt Monolith for infinite colourless (which I can then turn red with Gemstone Array), and someone on a discord I'm on suggested Planebound Accomplice + Cloudstone Curio + two planeswalkers that make red mana.

Is there anything else in Mono-R than can generate large (like 100ish) amounts of red mana?

Notably I'm not looking for infi creatures (Kiki combos) or infi damage (Kiki/Crafter), just huge amounts of red mana to pump into a Repeating Barrage or Molten Disaster or Fireball or whatever :)

Cast Twinflame paying for a second target and follow up with Dualcaster Mage, copying Twinflame, targeting Dualcaster Mage and the Priest of Urabrask or Stadium Vendors or a few others...although that's...infinite creatures too.... >_>

The only other answer I can think of is doing something with Mana Echoes, although that's probably just infinite creatures yet again.

Damn that's pretty cool.... but yeah if I have infinite creatures with haste, I don't also need infinite mana...

Mana Echoes and Firecat Blitz (or any other quick infusion of token creatures). You play the echoes, then you make X tokens, getting X^2 colorless mana.

You need to put Obsidian Fireheart back in the "Burninating the Coutryside" group. We fixed this before. Such is the danger of having multiple threads for the same deck.
