    As the deck currently sits.

    I need more things to combat graveyard, I'm re-adding Ash Zealot and possibly cutting down my 4 drops (Spark Trooper, Bloodbraid Elf, Giant Solifuge).

    Cards I've been unhappy with:

    Keldon Marauders
    Duress
    Figure of Destiny
  1.  
    Ash Zealot just isn't good enough to stop graveyard-based strategies. I'd happily take 3 to animate dead a Jin-Gitaxias or reanimate a Sun Titan/Protean Hulk to combo off. If you're that concerned about it then either play some really solid hate (Rest in Peace, Relic of Progenitus, Leyline of the Void) or find an alternate method of disruption.
    Decks like Breakfast and Hulk Flash have trouble with solid discard spells in 5-color, and reanimator strategies can generally be dealt with via typical removal.

    that being said, Thoughtseize and Tidehollow Sculler are both decent disruption, and even Blightning might work for this sort of build. Dead/Gone is an okay answer, and even Stingscourger could do some work if you used him correctly.

    I'm not sold on the non-red mox in the deck; they seem somewhat awkward with the huge number of RR or RRR cards you want cast as quickly as possible. Maybe try out Scab-Clan Mauler or Skyshroud War Beast in place of the other mana stones. I would also turn some of the mountains into shocks, maybe a 1-2 of each with a full set of Sacred Foundry.

    Armageddon could probably be Tarmogoyf, and Krosan Grip could be Dark Confidant; they're both busted good and I know you can make some sexy proxies.

    I know you've been dissatisfied with Delver of Secrets, maybe you could give Izzet Charm a try. Marauders, Duress, and Figure all seem like solid choices.
