Dragon Fodder Discussion

I highly recommend putting in Mogg War Marshal in place of either Dragon Fodder or Krenko's Command, and just ignore its Echo cost. You'll essentially still be paying two mana for two 1/1 bodies. But by not paying MWM's Echo cost, you'll be saccing him and immediately putting another 1/1 creature into play. Thus, you have extra triggers for Vicious Shadows, Impact Tremors, Boggart Shenanigans, and Purphoros's ability, just at a glance. Also, unlike DF/KC, MWM can be searched for, with Goblin Matron's ability, and cheated into play with Goblin Lackey's ability. One final note: As I type out this recommendation, your deck list currently shows two copies of Goblin Lackey here in your Commander/EDH deck.

There are a number of cheap, effective red kards Keldon Marauders has fallen out of favour, but is a 2 mana lava axe when it works. Nivmagus Elemental is cheap and provides limited counterspell protection and the oppertunity for combo finishes with Temur Battle Rage. Sin Prodder is dirt cheap and very effective, even without cheap delve.

With super budget the lack of lightning bolt hurts red, and lack of boros charm red white so janky combo is usually the most functional option. Board flooding with Mogg War Marshal, Foundry Street Denizen Dragon Fodder Battle Hymn Dragonrage Akroan Crusader Empty the Warrens, Haze of Rage and so forth to spam out a win. Guttersnipe used to be good but has fallen to more efficient options, leaving him pretty cheap.

Human tribal with Keldon Marauders/Thatcher Revolt/Kessig Malcontents is functional, especially with Gather the Townsfolk and Dearly Departed/Cathartic Reunion. For the non-$10 version there are some very competitive lists out there, but there are a lot of cards in modern that aren't valuable because they just aren't in short supply but are still super good.

@WrathofCod So, after 3 weeks I finally have the time and energy to actually read and write letters and words and have them make some amount of sense. Hopefully. SO. Getting a board early was indeed rather difficult. I felt like Kari Zev, Skyship Raider and Dragon Fodder didn't really fit what the deck was going for and therefore got replaced by Stormblood Berserkers and Monastery Swiftspears , which provide pretty solid early pressure. Although Soul-Scar Mage might be superior to the swiftspears since I prefer to aim my bolts at creatures and the wither effect seems quite delicious. As for Kiln Fiend, I don't think I like it very much right now. Especially now that I am (as much as it breaks my heart) slowly drifting away from the Flamewake Phoenix being the center of attention plan, and with only 13 ways to trigger the buff and no way of providing evasion, I would rather go with the less phoenix-friendly berserker. At least for now.

Browbeat is a great suggestion and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for bringing it up, since I had no idea it was reprinted as timeshifted. It's much better than tormenting voice, especially if the opponent chooses poorly out of fear of further burn.

With the loss of token generation, Purphoros became even worse than before, and since the deck didn't have a great source of red devotion, he and the fanatics got replaced by Thunderbreak Regents, as big enough and potentially very painful to remove dudes in the air. I'm going to try to trade for koth, but he seems rather rare in these parts.
Finally the sideboard - I like the tips, but I think other than Sowing Salt and graveyard hate, they don't have much application in the local meta from what I've seen so far (= 1FNM). Although to be honest, my original sideboard didn't do much either since I thought I was going to be beset on all sides by affinity and the occasional burn and ended up using the artifact hate only against eldrazi tron and the claw never left the bench.
TL;DR - Thank you again for your suggestions and help and even though I didn't necessarily use as many of them this time around, I think they helped me look for flaws in the right spots and might get used later. Have a glorious day.

A feel like the best version of this deck wants to go wider. It wants to spawn as many goblins as possible as quickly as possible, buff them, then alpha strike your opponents. A few cards I think you should try out Patron of the Akki, Quest for the Goblin Lord, Goblin Lookout, Dragon Fodder, Krenko's Command, Mogg War Marshal, Hordeling Outburst, Beetleback Chief, Empty the Warrens, Hammer of Purphoros, Lightning Greaves, and Door of Destinies.

Try swapping out Dragon Fodder in favor of Mogg War Marshal. MWM's casting cost (which is the same as DF's) can be lowered by Goblin Warchief's ability. It can be searched for, via Goblin Matron's ability, while Fodder can not. And on the next turn after you play MWM, if you opt to ignore his Echo cost, he still replaces himself with another 1/1 body anyway. Thus, if you have a sac outlet in hand, i.e. Goblin Grenade, you can play MWM, immediately sac it to the Grenade, and he'll immediately replace himself, allowing you to still have the same number of goblins in play as before you cast the Grenade. Not to mention that that extra token coming into play, when MWM dies or gets sacced, serves as another trigger for Impact Tremors.

Tl;dr version: Play Mogg War Marshal instead of Dragon Fodder, because at worst, you'll get exactly the same for the same mana cost, but you may get more for your mana, and it has more interactions with other stuff in the deck.

To make a bunch of tokens, to compliment krenko and Krenko's commands I'd add Dragon Fodder and Hordeling Outburst replacing them with your high CMC cards that make tokens. AND to turn all these tokens into sudden ramp add 1 or 2 Cryptolith Rite.

... Wake of Destruction? How many of your typical opponents run mono decks with mostly just basics?

As long as I'm suggesting things to cut, I found that when I played Krenko, stuff like Goblin Offensive and Goblin Warrens were much too slow for me. I got a lot more mileage out of cards like Krenko's Command, Dragon Fodder, and Hordeling Outburst.
