Chancellor of the Forge

Creature — Giant

You may reveal this card from your opening hand. If you do, at the beginning of the first upkeep, put a 1/1 red Goblin creature token with haste onto the battlefield. When Chancellor of the Furnace enters the battlefield, put X 1/1 red Goblin creatures with haste onto the battlefield, where X is the number of creatures you control.

Rituals are great for modern, but not so great in commander. I would replace your rituals for mana rocks like Everflowing Chalice , Worn Powerstone , or Hedron Archive .

Feldon of the Third Path is a great card, too. You keep him in hand to play after the inevitable board wipes in EDH. Then you can reanimate things like Chancellor of the Forge .

Akroan Horse seems...like it could be something better. Cards like Verdant Force and Tendershoot Dryad would do better, and Verdant Embrace enchants another creature to do the same. Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder is another one that could probably benefit from your current build, since you're running a lot of creatures. Kher Keep could be a fun land for you to run.

Evolutionary Leap would be a good sac outlet for you to run, and you could probably use a few more. Viscera Seer should be in the main deck. Izoni, Thousand-Eyed could produce you tokens under the right circumstance, and also provides sac and card draw. Krav, the Unredeemed works similarly to your other devour creatures, and will draw you double cards with Korvold on the battlefield. Vampiric Rites is another sac and draw outlet.

Other cuts I'd recommend: Ramunap Excavator and Crucible of Worlds (better for lands-matters themes), Chancellor of the Forge (high CMC, and to boot is tough to cast), and possibly Breeding Pit (tying up each turn might prove to be a pain in the ass).

Hope that helps!

My only concern is that you have too few bombs. When your Eggs (Changelings / tokens) die, you may end up revealing another small Changling, which isn't advancing your boardstate very much.

I'd suggest removing the Changelings for large creatures with huge threat levels. In my deck that I am building, I run Avenger of Zendikar as well as Chancellor of the Forge since they create vast swaths of tokens. I also have other large and immediate threats, too such as Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Aurelia, the Warleader . You want creatures who can stand on their own, without reliance on others. This means no Craterhoof Behemoth because if you get him out and you only have 3x other creatures, he is a dud. However, if you get out Stonehoof Chieftain , he is always going to be a strong asset, even if left alone. The same holds true for creatures such as Utvara Hellkite . Even if he is your only creature, he threatens everyone by self-fulfilling his own desire to span massive amounts of Dragons. Meanwhile, Scourge of Valkas is relatively weak because if he is the only Dragon you get out, he only deals 1 damage.

Look for giant threats who stand on their own, but also who don't have immense CMCs. You'd want to be able to play these creatures on curve if need be, or even a little ahead with ramp. This means no giant Eldrazi as they are just too large and if you draw into them, they are duds in your hand.

Considering your on a tight budget, Id cut these:
Rhythm of the Wild (unless you play vs alot of blue control, Love this card but I cut this quick when I realized how many things it doesn't affect that I care about)
Comet Storm
Chain Reaction (maybe keep, it kinda liek blasphemous act but you would have a betetr idea how well it does in your group!)
Stronghold Assassin
Savage Ventmaw
Vampiric Rites
Chancellor of the Forge
Forgotten Ancient
Plaguecrafter
Catacomb Sifter
Deathbringer Thoctar
Atarka, World Render

Good question. It's kind of a goofy card to see in a goblin-focused deck, but its really for being able to get out Chancellor of the Forge and Hamletback Goliath for a lower cost and use them as further goblin-ramping.

It'd be no fun to just include Standard legal cards, so lets just go Modern.

The first thing that would 100% happen is MonoDross. 60x Chancellor of the Dross .

Everything else would run Providence to survive it. Then they'd probably run alot of Chancellor of the Forge and Memnite or some sort of combo with Chancellor of the Tangle , Gemstone Caverns , and Simian Spirit Guide . Maybe Midnight Guard / Presence of Gond as a t2 Splinter Twin w/out haste?

One big problem is the fact that MonoDross Mirror matches would just be like "Lololol neither of us can win we both at 21 let's see who concedes first" or it would be whoever goes first wins bc the other person nat mills first.

What say you?

I feel like the Chancellor cycle are amazing for a deck that can offer such awful chances at risk v. reward lmao. Chancellor of the Spires , Chancellor of the Tangle and Chancellor of the Forge for reference. Opening Hand? GREAT! Not opening hand...meh.

Good luck with the deck! +1
