DeepbloodEclipse on Token Madness

If you want to benefit more from your tokens maybe consider Ogre Battledriver and Hero of Bladehold, one will make your newly summoned tokens immediately combat viable and the other one brings out more tokens with every attack and boosts your already attacking ones, a cheaper alternative to hero of Bladehold is Precinct Captain. An extremely and sickeningly broken combo is Midnight Guard enchanted with Presence of Gond. Another goblin token summoning card is Dragon Fodder

if you want draw, there are better cards than Tower of Fortunes. It comes in turn 4, and can't be activated until turn 8. If you need draw, you will be dead by the time you get it out of Tower of Fortunes. Phyrexian Arena, Read the Bones, and Painful Truths are far better. You could also maybe use something like Faithless Looting. Also no to Verdant Force... and no to Hellkite Hatchling for that matter. If you want token generation, there are better cards (see Bitterblossom, Dragon Fodder (also fits the flavor), or almost any other card. No to Hellkite Hatchling because destroying your own board state is almost never a good idea. If you are sold in the interaction, just play Dragon Broodmother, which does what both of those cards do in a single card.

For this deck, it might be good to focus on mostly red spells to copy with Zada. Good ones are

Expedite (for mass haste + draw)
Kari Zev's Expertise (for a free spell + haste for each creature you have
Borrowed Hostility, Seething Anger, Reckless Charge, Downhill Charge, Invigorated Rampage, Temur Battle Rage (each for massive boosts)
Heat Shimmer, Twinflame (both for copying all you stuff)

A backup for Zada could be the Mirrorwing Dragon. Another good way to fill the board for Zada is with token makers like Krenko's Command and Dragon Fodder.

hmm... alright then! Well, I used to have a mono red deck that revolved around goblin tokens with the cards mentioned above and my win condition was Predator Dragon. Add to this shell, Descent of the Dragons, Scourge of Valkas and Dragon Tempest and you have a pretty neat and strong deck. The Haste provided by tempest is very important for the descent to be effective. So the deck I would build would include:- 4xDragon Fodder- 2xKrenko's Command- 4xDragon Tempest- 4xHordeling Outburst- 2xScourge of Valkas- 3xDescent of the Dragons- 2xPredator Dragon

This would be a good place to start for a deck that wants to win with Descent. If I have time later today, i will think of some more cards to fill in the missing spots...

What is your budget and in which environment do you plan to play with this? If it's in competitive Legacy matches, you will have a VERY hard time... If it's for a more friendly environment, then name your budget (how much are you willing to spend per card, and/or in total) and you will be flooded with suggestions.

You said you like the Descent and are looking for Dragon Fodder? Look no further than your local Hordeling Outbursts happening right now on Krenko's Command! :p

The idea is to use Blood Moon to make all of your opponent's lands into mountains, then you enchant their lands with Genju of the Spires, then kill it with a pinger like Cunning Sparkmage or something like Pyroclasm. You would be able to consistently get Genju of the Spires and Blood Moon with Heliod's Pilgrim or Idyllic Tutor every game. After you destroy their landbase, you could use a cheeky card like Terra Eternal or Sacred Ground and start enchanting your own mountains to quickly beat down on your opponents. Another idea is to use goblin cards like Dragon Fodder, or Krenko's Command alongside Goblin Bombardment to easily ping your opponent's lands. What do you guys think? I personally think it could be an extremely fun rogue deck. Also, post ideas and your decks to add to this rogue archetype. It helps a lot.

skoobysnackz literally any other card in the deck. Heck, even Dragon Fodder would be better.

Swap some copies of Dragon Fodder/Krenko's Command out for Mogg War Marshal and just ignore its Echo cost. At worst, the end net result is the same: two 1/1 creatures on the board in exchange for paying two mana. At best, you have a 1/1 goblin that will immediately replace itself when you sac it to Goblin Grenade, keeping the number of goblins you have on the battlefield the same in spite of the Grenade.
After reading the previous comments, I will simply add that, should you ever find Krenko making his way onto the battlefield more often, Impact Tremors does pair with him really well.
