Why Zada, Hedron Grinder when you have no instants or sorceries you would want to be targeting your own creatures?

I would consider Goblin Tinkerer, Goblin Sharpshooter, or Spikeshot Elder in that slot instead.

I keep forgetting the medallions got an EDH reprint. Gotta to try to pick them up.

Goblin Sharpshooter has been in the list before now. I might rotate him back in!

A Goblin Sharpshooter with your Basilisk Collar is a cheap boardwipe.

Also a Ruby Medallion would make your deck cheaper to play for you.

acht_deck_manager, hey. I used to have Goblin Sharpshooter in the deck, but without a guarantee kill for him (like with Basilisk Collar) there wasn't a good point to have him out. He would just sit and look cool.

Hellrider is a cool card. But I would rather have him in a deck that attacks often to make the most of him, like a Krenko, Mob Boss attack deck, then a spawn token deck like this. I think it's mostly cause my pods tend to have a lot, a lot of boardwipes.

I did also have Empty the Warrens here in my deck at one point, but with the cost of the spell, trying to storm without going broke, is pretty tough. It's an amazing card with Grinning Ignus, that's for sure!

Lots of good cards, it's tough to think of what to switch out for possible change. Good thoughts.

Ever considered running any of the following?:

Goblin Sharpshooter / Rage Thrower / Stalking Vengeance to make opponents wiping the board hurt a little more

Hellrider to make attacking with your swarms lethal as a last resort

Also there's Empty the Warrens when you want to go for broke making your tokens and Battle Hymn to give you the mana to go the distance

Definitely a cool take on the deck!

Hey nice looking deck, it reminds me of mine very much since I also have an elf tribe Prossh deck. In my deck I utilize more damage triggers to finish off opponents. They are also a way to squeeze out some damage if you are board wiped. Cards like:Blood Artist, Falkenrath Noble, Goblin Sharpshooter, Hissing Iguanar, Impact Tremors, Outpost Siege, and Zulaport Cutthroat can make each elf and kobold do some extra damage. If you can get a couple out before casting Prossh, its usually game over. Depending on how far you want to take then elf tribe combo potential, there are obviously lots of ways to make infinite mana. In mine I am only using two right now, Sword of the Paruns + a mana dork that generates 4x, and the Argothian Elder + Wirewood Lodge combo. I like that all those cards also help do other things like pump up kobolds or make mana, so they are never dead. As far as cuts, I would cut many of the cards that cost as much or more to cast than Prossh. In this deck, you can have such powerful synergies and combos available that just casting Prossh is game over for many opponents. If a card costs as much as Prossh and its not virtually ending the game on the spot, you could probably switch it for one that will. Vicious Shadows is an example of an expensive card that can win the game. On top of that the elves have potential to get out of hand all on their own. My favorite big mana producing cards you are not using are: Argothian Elder, Cryptolith Rite, Earthcraft, Elvish Guidance, Garruk Wildspeaker, Karametra's Acolyte, Seeker of Skybreak, Voyaging Satyr, Wirewood Channeler, Wirewood Lodge, Xenagos, the Reveler. Bonus combo Squirrel Nest + Earthcraft.

First and foremost you need to change out Hedron Crawler and put in Sisters of the Flame! Also suggestions to take out: Goblin Sharpshooter, great card and fun but easily removed before he does his work, Goblinslide, I've never really seen you or anyone else pay for it and games end too fast for you to "waste" mana on it, last suggestion, Altar of the Brood, has this won a game for you? The Eldrazi Legends and other cards make this hard to do sometimes, it does get the hate though. Hope this helps because I love Furystoke Giant.

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle can be cut i think. Think over the games you've played, when was the last time you wanted to draw 7 lands, and how often do you need to deal 3 damage to something that you keep a CIPT land in your combo/aggro deck? Another mountain could do well

Goblin Wardriver is this strong enough?

Goblin Gardener not strong enough?

Lightning Crafter this card is another infininte combo with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. have kiki in play, another goblin and a sac outlet. play lightning crafter, champion the random goblin, then have kiki copy the crafter.the token champions kiki, taps to do 3, then you sac the token. Kiki comes back into play untapped and ready to do it again.The cool part about the combo is that you can search it all from Goblin Recruiter.

Breath of Fury is a cool card i've had success with when i had my Krenko deck up and running. you need at least one opponent to have no blockers, a mass haste outlet, one goblin and krenko on the field. enchant the random goblin with Breath of Fury, attack the player with no creatures with just that creature. when it connects and triggers, tap krenko to make 2 tokens, sac the creature with the enchantment and attach to one of the new tokens. repeat until you have a large enough army to kill each player.

Ancient Tomb and City of Traitors speed up krenko

Brightstone Ritual could led to explosive turns

Outpost Siege can serve two purposes, and extra Boggart Shenanigans or "card draw"

Mana Echoes can go infininte with Staff of Domination, Umbral Mantle, Sword of the Paruns or any of the sac a creature get mana things you have and Krenko.

If you're running Ruination I'd take a hard look at the lands you run, and Reliquary Tower and Buried Ruin don't seem nessary for the deck.

also I'm not conviced on Extraplanar Lens, you're not a big mana deck so strip mine'ing a land to get more mana dosen't seem worth it.

Gamble might be something to look into as well. Just be aware that it's a gamble!

Mogg Infestation is interesting, what are you mostly doing with this? Targeting youself with Purphoros, God of the Forge out? Targeting an oppopent with Goblin Sharpshooter out? another 2 card combo you can't tutor for?
