As an additional cost to play Fling, sacrifice a creature.
Fling deals damage equal to the sacrificed creature's power to target creature or player.

okay this is going to be a long list, I've been helping a friend work on a kresh deck for quite some time so I'm pretty familiar with Kresh,despite never playing him myself.
All of these creatures interact with kresh in one way or another.
1x Beast Within Kills almost anything
1x Fling Win con if an alpha strike fails
1x Hero's Downfall Kills planeswalkers, or creatures
1x Fervor Haste on kresh is a great
1x Runes of the Deus Trample and DS is stupid good with Kresh
1x Reanimate Get whatever you want back
1x Darksteel Plate Keeps kresh around
1x Demonmail Hauberk Equip to pump kresh with a sac outlet
1x Mage Slayer Another win-con with kresh
1x Oblivion Stone Cheaper boardwipe that can keep kresh on board
1x Whispersilk Cloak Win-con. Kresh unblockable wins games
Hope this helps.
That's hard to say, a lot of the cards are good, what I would do, get rid of Fling , Jarad is basically a better version of that, which you can keep casting, and instead of hitting one creature or player with Fling, just hit all of your opponents with Jarad's ability, its just a great combo with Kresh to have Jarad, because litterally, in one turn you could end the game just by drawing Jarad at any given time and having Kresh on the field, especially if you plan to be aggressive with him. Jarad would add to your devotion for 2 of your gods too, if you had thought about activating them as creatures, always good back up.
Draw card. Plus it makes the squids from Chasm Skulker unblockable.
I have a U/R Chasm Skulker deck as well. I found a great combo with him to be Brainstorm and Reforge the Soul + Fling . Brainstorm ensures you pay Reforge the Soul 's miracle cost and then you Fling your now 11/11 or 12/12 Chasm Skulker and follow it up by swinging with the squid babies.
Thanks for the suggestion. I don't like luck based things so Molten Birth is off the table, but otherwise I like Altar's Reap and Viscera Seer . As for Fling I have thought about replacing bone splinters with it but I so far have preferred that one less mana cost. Slave of Bolas seems like no more than an Act of Treason and a sac effect without the bonus for saccing (correct me if i'm wrong) and I wanted Krenko's Command in the deck but I just didn't have any room for it (a suggestion about what to remove to put it in might help :)).
+1 for Monaco reference.
Molten Birth or Altar's Reap or Blood Bairn or Viscera Seer or Fling . also Slave of Bolas . it's possible to make goblins a subtheme, just get something like Dragon Fodder and Krenko's Command and some kind of lord.
there are other options for stealing creatures that might be better Traitorous Instinct etc.
Glaring Spotlight might be useful against hexproof.
no problem :)
and as to Iroas, God of Victory , you are right, he is expensive, but he would be a creature when you needed him to be.
He gives himself 2 Devotion, so if you have, say, a Silverblade Paladin out and play a Spark Trooper , thats 7 devotion. Now you can attack with Iroas, AND a double striking, indestructible Spark Trooper . When the Trooper dies, Iroas goes back to being just an enchantment.
food for thought at least. Iroas will protect your guys from First Strike/Double Strike and prevent them from dying to any combat tricks before they're able to do their damage even if he's not a creature, so he'd still be pretty good. That and 7 damage off of Fling ing him is nothing to sneeze at.
