This looks awesome. Have you considered Accelerate , Boiling Blood , Brute Force , Fall of the Hammer , Panic , Assault Strobe , Howl of the Horde , Renegade Tactics , Darksteel Plate or Goblin Chirurgeon ?

Chirurgeon is great to regen/protect and some of the other draw cards like panic and renegade tactics would be insane for drawing and wouldn't affect you much on your own turn.

Like SamsWrath said above, needs room for the Mox Diamond :P I wouldn't touch the Iso Scepter combo with 10ft pole though.

I think Siege Gang should be pulled, he's bringing up the curve too much and not doing a lot. Wasteland should be swapped for Dwarven Ruins as its pretty narrow and too responsive.

I'd pull Defense Grid in favor of Expedition Map which can tutor up your Cavern of Souls. Defense Grid has a higher chance of being dropped, and then the next combo player will just win.

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.

I'd run Grafdigger's Cage over Stranglehold as you can drop it turn 1 and forget it, where Strangle competes for turn drop with Krenko. It's a nonbo with Moggcatcher, but that's about it.

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.

SamsWrath on [cEDH] Krenko Combo

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.

I'm not sure of your budget, but a few cheaper cards to consider;

Citanul Flute (If the games go on for a while)

Dynacharge (Can actually be a game ender, at instant speed)

Goblin Chirurgeon (Saves half your board most of the time during a normal board wipe)

Breath of Fury

Wild Guess Tormenting Voice Faithless Looting Are all decent draw spells (For red) and help you to filter what you're looking for.

But one of the best investments would be Legion Loyalist It turns your goblins into first striking, trampling goblins, and who doesn't want that when they're 23/2's?!

ScryLord on my first attempt at Krenko, Mob Boss EDH!

Wow! This is pretty darn good for a first attempt. There's a whole lot of Goblin tribal cards out there, it'd take forever to list them all out so here are a "few" suggestions: - Path of Ancestry - Goblin King - Goblin Grenade - Goblin Chieftain - Dragon Fodder - Skirk Prospector - Goblin Bombardment - Throne of the God-Pharaoh - Mogg War Marshal - Goblin Chirurgeon - Last-Ditch Effort - Goblin Wardriver - Goblin Bushwhacker - Skirk Fire Marshal - Goblin Rabblemaster - Shared Animosity - Goblin War Strike - Goblin Piledriver - Goblin Sledder - Legion Loyalist - Grenzo, Havoc Raiser - Goblin Rally - Metallic Mimic - Adaptive Automaton - Goblin Trashmaster - Quest for the Goblin Lord - Eldrazi Monument - Hordeling Outburst - Goblin Offensive ... and a whole lot more that I didn't add because I'm pretty sure this is way more than enough. Take your pick. Good luck with your deck!

I would suggest focusing on having large numbers of low cost Goblins and ones with utility rather than big ones. Battle Squadron, Voracious Dragon, and Berserkers' Onslaught could be cut.

You might cut some of the anthems, or just play more efficient ones. Vanquisher's Banner gives card draw which is really helpful for this deck. Adaptive Automaton is worth a shot as a 2 CMC Goblin lord. Goblin King gives mountainwalk which could be relevant in multiplayer games. The new Goblin Trashmaster is a lord that also provides artifact removal. Ogre Battledriver and In the Web of War give haste and also pump your Goblins, so could replace Hammer of Purphoros.

Goblin Lackey and Warren Instigator can put into play any Goblin from your hand. Goblin Chirurgeon can protect Krenko. Sensation Gorger and Slate of Ancestry provide more wheeling.

Mana Echoes could be good to generate mana whenever you make or play Goblins, and also goes infinite with Umbral Mantle or Sword of the Paruns on Krenko if you would include those in your deck. Thornbite Staff can untap Krenko for free whenever a Goblin dies, so it goes infinite with any sac outlet. Ashnod's Altar is another good one.

Cool theme! Here's some suggestions:

I have a copy of Goblin Chirurgeon and it worked really well in my Krenko, Mob Boss version of the deck. I didn't include it here, Paranoiac, because i wasn't sure it had the same impact: Krenko, Mob Boss is a goblin and that extra protection was really nice, but with Purphoros, God of the Forge already being really resilient i don't see a good use for it.

The thing is: after a couple of games i realised that one really cool aspect of this deck is that it does not care about board presence (most of the time) so board wipes dont affect me so much. I have great utility goblins like Goblin Welder but not many creatures actually worth fighting for it's survivability.

One of the best changes i made was removing Coat of Arms and adding a Eldrazi Monument mainly to be able to push for damage with evasion and block creatures with flying.
