Prossh Food Chain has 3 functional cards: your general, Food Chain, and 1 win condition. It is quite easy to remove cards from the list.

@pskinn01 Oh. I didn't read Food Chain's rules text. Well, that's a theme of a deck out the window. :(

@miracleHat Two questions:

With the 40% wins, how many games is that?

Do you oftenly win by turn 4-5?

I think a card like Food Chain kills the budget idea, unless that's the only card you plan on spending any money on. But hey, it's your deck.

Some budget cards that might fit with what you want to do with all those tokens would be Goblin Bombardment, Fecundity to draw cards from the sacrifices, Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, or the budget Butcher of Malakir for some removal.

Those are some starters, anyways.

I am trying to build a competitive Prossh deck and stay on a budget . Obviously I need to buy Food Chain, but what to do with the 99? I wanted to do a lot of extra combats and abuse cards like Frontline Devastator and Devouring Swarm.

krenko can be explosive, he was my first commander and i love him to this day, that said, i recently upgraded to Wort, the Raidmother since my krenko deck has been completed and tuned for several years now, and tapping him and winning can bore your playgroup in high doses. i upgraded to wort for the color splash, so that i could run busted cards like Food Chain, Doubling Season, Gaea's Cradle and Craterhoof Behemoth, and personally i would say wort is a strict upgrade in power level, although the spell subtheme makes the deck play a bit different.

i too love goblins, hence my name, but mono red is very restrictive in edh, if i were you i would work towards either Wort, the Raidmother, Grenzo, Dungeon Warden or even Shattergang Brothers, as wort and shattergang can include the above green cards as well as tons of budget green spells, while grenzo and shattergang gain access to powerful, game winning spells like Doomsday, Necropotence, Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor

krenko can still explode but he relies very heavily on enablers such as Thousand-Year Elixir or Hammer of Purphoros to give him haste and untap him multiple times

good luck with your Goblin Offensive :)

You could probably just upgrade Tazri to a Food Chain deck and be fairly competitive. It would help to see your current list to be able to offer suggestions.

I play tested a few times. Prossh comes out at a decent pace. I might suggest Vexing Shusher to avoid your Food Chain from being countered. I have a rule. When playing any 3 colour deck, dont include many double or triple colour casting cost cards unless you are sure you can cheat them out successfully. The Shusher will help a lot with that. If you'd like to check my Prossh deck out it may give you an idea how im using him to truly combo.

The land pinging with Living Plane is nice but there is much more to it. Giving their lands summoning sickness is huge especially against fetches in these days of 4 color edh. Also being able to sac my lands to Food Chain or an altar is nice. The dream though is Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite + Living Plane
