Gauntlet of Might Discussion
9 hours ago
You're going to need card draw in the form of wheels such as Wheel of Fortune, Wheel of Fate, Reforge the Soul and the like. Then incremental draw in the form of Mind's Eye, Staff of Nin or the planeswalker staff of nin (forgot the name).
Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle to go with all the mountains
How do you deal with nullrod/stony silence? Some colorless removal like Ugin, Karn, and others will go along way.

@Dave-writer90 I've actually used Goblin War Drums in the past and enjoyed it. The menace can help sometimes, but most of the time your opponents will only have a handful of blockers and your goblin tokens should be fairly expendable anyways. So it doesn't quite make the cut for me, which is a real shame because it's so perfect flavour-wise. Caged Sun is also a good card, as well as lower cmc alternatives such as Gauntlet of Power and Gauntlet of Might. Thanks for your suggestions, I always love hearing from other goblin tribal enthusiasts! I'll definitely take a look at your deck.

I like the deck. It looks aggressive and fun at the same time, with a bit of randomness due to all the "discard your hand and draw seven cards" effects. Just a few things:
Leyline of Punishment is something of a nonbo with your other damage prevention and lifegain, it seems. Same with Skullcrack. I can see why they're in there, but at the same time they hamper your defenses. Stigma Lasher's ability works better in this regard, so long as someone doesn't hit you with it. Platinum Emperion is also good, as it at least locks your life total in place. I'm curious as to your thoughts for including these pieces?
Also, why Possibility Storm?

Cloudstone Curio can trigger off the Queen's tokens, letting you manasink into a (relatively) cheap dragon for a bunch of tokens a turn (hope you got a haste source!). Other than what you already got, you might want to consider Slumbering Dragon and/or Taurean Mauler for this purpose (although bouncing them is a nonbo with their respective abilities).

Mogg Fanatic / Bloodstone Goblin / Goblin Spelunkers / Skirk Prospector / Spikeshot Goblin / Taurean Mauler / Pulse of the Forge / Radiating Lightning / Burning Wish / Seismic Shift / Grand Melee / Impact Tremors / Trove of Temptation
Cut these creatures and spells as soon as possible, none of them improve the Voltron wincon. You've got a lot of filler in here, I stopped adding cuts because it really depends how far you want to take this deck as well as what you'd budget for it. Mono red likes ramp, I'd recommend adding the mana doublers Gauntlet of Might / Gauntlet of Power and Caged Sun as well as some rocks Sol Ring and others. From your maybe board I'd include Goblin King / Blood Moon / Daretti, Scrap Savant and a few others. Mono red voltron is going to rely on you ramping up harder and controlling your opponents by destroying artifacts and land so Shattering Spree / Volcanic Offering / Incendiary Command / Mizzium Mortars / Fissure Vent/ Structural Distortion are all cards i'd recommend. Hope this helps, like I said it all depends on how far you want to take it but there are plenty of mono red staples that you don't have in here that would work well with a voltron build.

Suns_Champion Yess!! I'm usually not a big fan of red, but this commander was WAY too good to pass up! Also, thank you! At some point I'll add pillowfort to the deck if I feel like im being attacked without enough answers!
Azor's gateway is such a fun card and that flip side is so worth it! I'm gonna try a few games with it, but my biggest worry if just how slow it is.
Book of Rass. It's such a shame that Boros has to scrape the bottom of the barrel. It's worth a shot. I've tried it in a few mono-white life-gain decks and it's kinda been a help. It's just 6 mana is a LOT.
Radiate I will be adding. I can't believe I didn't know about this card. The combo potential is insane with this.
Humble defecter is a big no-go for me. Love the card itself, but the meta I play in make even the slightest group hug cards a terrible idea. I'm still gonna add it to my list, because if I ever play anywhere else it'll be that bit of extra draw and political evil I need.
Bedlam Reveler is going on my big Maybe list (better than regualar maybe) if I feel I empty my hand way too often it's going in for sure. Not to mention the art is insane.
I'm 100% certain my deck needs some more mana rocks. Mana Crypt and Sol ring alone won't cut it. Right now, I'm testing the limits but those 3 and Mana doublers (ie Extraplanar Lens and Gauntlet of Might) are at the top of my list.
Sorry I'm so late to replying to this. I've been working on the primer. (which even still isn't where I want it to be yet)
Have you thought of any thing else while you've been play testing? Also, do we know of any more infinite combos?

The point isn't to mirror what you would play in your kitchen meta or LGS.
The point is to provide answers to the myriad of Blue decks that you see in tiers 1-3. That's why they're staples. Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast are very good at what they do and if you're to promote a deck that is to provide plausible answers or ways in dealing with other decks, those should not be forgotten.
And Mox Diamond is assuredly a staple in any deck, as your turn 1 now offers you 2 coloured mana as opposed to just 1. Extraplanar lens is not a great card. Take a look at the vast majority of decks that have been deliberated to death here and other sites before reflecting their position. Note how many include Mox Diamond and how little include Extraplanar Lens. You are both susceptible to artifact destruction, however one pitches a land to the grave - a zone that can easily be manipulated, whereas the other sits in exile - a zone that is not as easy. In fact I have seen Gauntlet of Might used more frequently as it doesn't require an imprint. Chrome Mox and Mox Opal are other staples you could utilize - the former requiring an imprint but it could very well be the "dead" card you don't need - like REB or Pyro. The latter is just a great way to get free mana, and 16 artifacts (in your current build) could and should easily support it.
Abusing tokens to trigger Purphoros is a fine way to create a deck, but sacrificing staples in favour of redundancy doesn't really do the deck justice, and whether you are willing to believe it or not, it is omitting staples that the vast majority of decks run.
