Dwarven Ruins Discussion

SamsWrath thanks for your deck advice! Mox Opal is going in as soon as I have enough spare cash. At the moment it doesn’t benefit to remove Gauntlet of Power and Extraplanar Lens , but once I’ve included the artifact lands (for metalcraft) and some of the quick mana you have suggested, the benefits of those cards will be eroded sufficiently.
I will be keeping the ramp spells you suggest in mind. I am currently testing extra turn cards Last Chance and Final Fortune , and once I have decided if to keep them I will move on to those. What’s your thoughts on Treasonous Ogre to pay life for ramp?
I couldn’t warrant City of Traitors but Dwarven Ruins and Sandstone Needle are going in for sure. Crystal Vein I am going to pass on as I have never been left wanting more colourless as the deck has numerous ways of producing it.
Torch Courier doesn’t give this deck enough benefit to earn a slot. I would typically play the haste card when I am all set to win. As this is targeted haste, the goblin army can’t swing out, requiring more pieces to win. Also, it doesn’t synergise with sacking Krenko back to the command zone and recasting with infinite mana.
Some great suggestions dude, thank you!

I know they're pet cards but, Extraplanar Lens and Gauntlet of Power are actually not very fast but rather, kind of clunky. I'd toss in Mox Opal and potentially more red ramp spells such as Lotus Petal , Simian Spirit Guide , Rite of Flame , Desperate Ritual , Pyretic Ritual and Seething Song .
Torch Courier is another good way to give Krenko haste and doubles as a body for Krenko if he doesn't need the haste.
For all-around spell reduction Helm of Awakening is an excellent option!
If you add in more ramp I think you can reduce your total land count to 30-31 without issue.

You may be able to drop a few lands--especially if you add in the KCI combo. I tried to keep these suggestions as budget as possible but, a couple of them are in the $15-$20 range.
Some spells to consider:
- Words of Wind
- Long-Term Plans
- Krark-Clan Ironworks
- Mana Vault
- Paradox Engine
- Walking Ballista
- Artificer's Assistant
- Quicksmith Genius

Like SamsWrath said above, needs room for the Mox Diamond :P I wouldn't touch the Iso Scepter combo with 10ft pole though.
Dragon Fodder should %100 be Goblin Instigator. Gets you the same number of gobs but its reduceable via Warchief and is tutorable and copyable by Matron/Recruiter and Kiki. Then replace Krenko's Command with Goblin Chirurgeon. That'll lower the deck cmc, adds another combo enabler, and has some value for protecting Krenko.
Thorn of Amethyst might be worth it. Add to maybeboard?
I'd also just pull Hanweir Battlements. Its just so rare that you have Krenko mana + an open red source + this land untapped.

Krenko is hard to tune for cEDH because at his best he's probably still a 2.5-tier commander. I play Krenko as my "fair" deck but, I have given some though into making him faster. One thing I'm 100% sure of is that outside of a turn 1 wheel that has tons of ramp and nets another wheel, I see no way to get a turn 1 win with Krenko. Below are some of the cards I've considered that you don't currently have in your list.
- Add another chance for an extra turn with Warrior's Oath.
- You can take even more extra turns with Isochron Scepter + Final Fortune + Sundial of the Infinite. Add in something to untap an artifact and that would be bonkers!
- Dwarven Ruins is a not-as-good Sandstone Needle but, is still quite capable of helping with a Turn 2 Krenko.
- More 1cmc Goblins will give you more bodies, faster, and you're missing a few really good ones such as: Foundry Street Denizen, Goblin Chirurgeon, Goblin Welder and Legion Loyalist.
- Goblin Instigator is another good 2cmc (1cmc with a reducer) for 2 1/1 Goblins.
- Mass Hysteria is probably the fastest and cheapest way to get haste for ALL of your gobos!
- The more Ramp the better because that's how you're going to drop Krenko Turn 1-2 and multiply your gobos fast! Find room for that Mox Diamond and also consider: Infernal Plunge, Desperate Ritual, Pyretic Ritual, Seething Song and Simian Spirit Guide.
- Draw helps a lot. You might also want to consider: Memory Jar, Reforge the Soul, Scroll Rack and Slate of Ancestry.
- More spell-cost reduction never hurt and in a tribal deck Urza's Incubator and Semblance Anvil could do some work.
- Staff of Domination to untap Krenko!

Don't forget Blasphemous Act too! And if you use Crucible of Worlds you can make use out of lands like Sandstone Needle and Dwarven Ruins, although if you run those Amulet of Vigor might be a nice slot for taplands. Not sure if that's ideal though since I don't see a consistent way to get all of those on the board in mono-red exactly but who knows. It's something perhaps worth considering.

great build! it looks great, i do feel its a bit overblown and that you could have the same consistency, and i feel some of your "response" cards are not really needed. mana drain for example could be replaced with a Misdirection as it works as great counter-counter magic.
the affinity artifact creatures also are good fuel. those, jhoira orMetalwork Colossus along side Energy Tap can give lots of mana for one blue. Repeal is good removal and can be one blue to draw two.
some of the $$ costly cards you have in this list are truly great, such as the wheel effects. but i do feel some of the cards are not doing their best work per slot they take up.
im working on a tight budget and so dont have access to the mana rocks or other more costly cards but do check out my list, im always down to see how and why other jhoira pilots use the list they do.
my list: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/05-07-18-jhoira-edh/
i have yet to use it, and it probs works better in a more kamikaze Cheerios build like mine but check out Drafna's Restoration
