Dragon Fodder Discussion

DeadRanger4Life thanks for the comment!
Creature count can be deceptive: take a look at the other sections (especially sorceries) and you will see 10+ token makers, mainly Dragon Fodder effects. This is because I want to get 2 creatures out of one card for as little mana as possible. Thus my creature count is in actuality more like 35.
Silverwing Squadron is just okay. You have to wait a turn to start churning out tokens, so it seems slow even in Winota. I didn't pickup Dockside because of the price, but I also don't feel like this deck needs him. Chandra, Acolyte of Flame is a cool card that is still begging for a spot. Might find its way it.
I've really only stuck with this version, but see my comments above featuring other ways to build Winota. There are some interesting angles out there.
As for upgrades... besides fast mana, any upgrades are based on your personal budget and playgroup. This deck is an easy 8-9 power level and something I'd be comfortable bringing to cEDH games for the underdog strategy. It's really in a perfect place for me, and if I had a bigger budget I probably wouldn't change anything.

Hey, for the low budget good job for your first Commander deck.
Consider a Goblin and Dragon theme? This would give your overall deck a more focused theme instead of just playing random creatures such as Diregraf Ghoul and Spinal Centipede. I suggest this because when Kolaghan attacks she pumps any creatures you control and Goblins can make lots of token creatures. This kind of strategy is call go wide. Which means attacking with lots of creatures, a wide battlefield of creatures.
Cards to consider adding:
- Command Tower
- Tome of Legends: repeatable draw, triggers twice when you dash Kolaghan since she ETB and attacks.
- Sol Ring
- Diabolic Tutor
- Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin
- Krenko, Mob Boss
- Legion Warboss
- Taurean Mauler: Changeling, is a Dragon and a Goblin.
- Ogre Battledriver: each token that's created does ETB it gains haste and gets a +2/0 pump. Each time you dash Kolaghan she ETB giving her a +2/0 pump.
- Boltwing Marauder
- Torbran, Thane of Red Fell
- Siege-Gang Commander
- Chaos Warp
- Heraldic Banner
- Goblin Matron
- Goblin Warchief
- Skirk Prospector
- Krenko's Command
- Dragon Fodder
- Hordeling Outburst
- Pashalik Mons
- Sling-Gang Lieutenant
Good luck with your deck.

Dragon Fodder and Krenko's Command are the same as Goblin Instigator, who I tend to like more because he's harder to counter (i.e. doesn't get hit by Negate and things like that, but that will likely never come up) and also provides one nontoken creature into the mix, for cards that care about it. Just my humble opinion, of course. I do agree that Krenko's Command is definitely more flavourful though. Might I recommend your 61st card be a Goblin Snowman?

Looks good! You might like these: Pashalik Mons, Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician, Null Brooch, Dragon Fodder, Brightstone Ritual, Treasonous Ogre, Battle Hymn, Ashnod's Altar, Spawning Pit, Impact Tremors, Shared Animosity, Goblin Engineer, Slate of Ancestry, Tome of Legends, Idol of Oblivion, Dwarven Mine

So the deck can flip into your big humans with Winota much faster by using cards like Raise the Alarm , Servo Exhibition , Dragon Fodder , Krenko's Command , and Hordeling Outburst making a few non human tokens before you reach turn 3/4 when you want to reasonably get into Winota on the attack and get several triggers with her ability.

Some cards that have particularly good interaction with Niv:
Curiosity for additional card draw using his ping ability against players.
Riptide Laboratory to reuse some of those supporting wizards.
You could also use some more general removal spells:
Direct Current doesn't do enough to warrant inclusion. Despite its efficiency, you very rarely see Lightning Bolt or similar effects getting played in EDH. The size of the creatures that get played and joint pool of 120 starting life relegate these effects to other formats. Dragon Fodder doesn't really do much either but if its a flavor inclusion, then keep, maybe Niv needs minions to fetch him things or just wants snack food handy. Stealth Mission would probably be better served becoming something like Lazotep Plating. Capture Sphere might be better as Deep Freeze if opposing commanders having activated abilities that don't require tapping. I know I wouldn't care if Sphere hit my Tasigur, the Golden Fang
I have a deck using this same commander if you want more ideas.
