MistaFizz thats not a stupid question at all! In fact this is actually somthing I have been toying with alot lately. I previously have played stuff like Craterhoof Behemoth, Avenger of Zendikar and Exsanguinate as my finishers in the deck but after awhile those have all kinda grown stale. Currently this deck wins by basically outvalueing everyone else (somthing it is very good at). Once i get a few of my many engines going i generate so much card advantage and board control that i can usually whittle down my opponents with Blood Artist, Goblin Bombardment, Deathbringer Thoctar or any number of reanimated beaters.

You should play Decimate, Ashnod's Altar, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Acidic Slime, Chandra's Ignition, Fleshbag Marauder, Harvester of Souls, Deathbringer Thoctar, Viscera Seer, Blasphemous Act, Solemn Simulacrum, and Yavimaya Elder. I'll make another comment on what to cut.

Personally I recommend Sedris, (maybe even his buddy Thraximundar) But the colour advantage you get is really nice, and the addition of blue gives you a lot of cool/fun options. Like for example Havengul Runebinder, Stitcher Geralf, Gisa and Geralf, Diregraf Captain, and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born. Red even splashes in some fun with Deathbringer Thoctar, Warstorm Surge, Goblin Bombardment, Impact Tremors, and even some fun thievery like Zealous Conscripts. Heck red even throws in the addition of Artifact removal, something Black and blue lack in. Vandalblast, Rakdos Charm, and By Force would all be nice additions.

If you want to maximize +1/+1 counters you may want to look to getting a few of these

Like the deck idea!
Many artifacts double as creatures. One way to expand the theme could with more cards that care about creatures dying, such as Dictate of Erebos, Black Market and Deathbringer Thoctar. All still trigger, even if you get the card back.
Vedalken Engineer could also help as another artifact mana source.

I love the deck. Prossh has long been one of my favorite commanders. He's just primed and ready for so many things to go off.
With Prossh being a veritable death engine, cards like Dictate of Erebos, Butcher of Malakir, and Grave Pact essentially make him a one-sided board wipe, and then if you have any kobolds left, it practically locks opponents out of playing any creatures until it's answered.
Vicious Shadows is a, well, vicious card in this deck. Just the 6 kobolds from Prossh's first cast is enough to deal on average 18-30 damage to a player. Or to outright kill that one guy who's been playing too many draw spells. Don't want to sac them just to deal damage? It's Prossh, they'll die eventually either way. Just sit and wait, and punish whoever tried to boardwipe. Immensely.
Deathbringer Thoctar is often an over performer. One counter on him and all of your opponent's 1-toughness creatures die. Then, just let him accumulate counters naturally as your deck does it's thing, and he'll usually be able to handle any particularly annoying creature you may want dealt with. And if he can't? Just send him a couple more Kobolds to do the trick.
The last card I'll suggest isn't a game-changer, but rather just a personal favorite of mine. Mitotic Slime, (and I guess Sprouting Thrinax, for the same reasons), are great cards if you're going for the hard win. The Slime gives you 7 sacrifice triggers off of one 5cmc creature. (4 for 3 on the Thrinax) They are simply value. An extra boost when it might be needed. Idk if they have a place in your deck, but they at least earn a mention.
Anyhow, I'm sorry for the tome. It's apparently what I do on here now. XP Hopefully some of it is useful.
I like your deck building style. If you want, please feel free to check out some of my decks and leave any critiques you may have.
