Hi Jfreyes,

Have you thought about adding Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker? This card can give you some massively funny combo's with some of the other cards you're already using. For instance:

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Zealous Conscripts: Use Kiki to make a copy of Conscripts. When the copy of Conscripts enters the battlefield, use it to 'take control' of Kiki, which also untaps him (so that you can use him again). So basically you create an infinite amount of 3/3's with this. If you also have Purphoros, God of the Forge on the BF, this basically ends the game in your favor.

Another card I'd recommend adding is Thornbite Staff. Together with Krenko, Mob Boss and Goblin Bombardment this can give you another infinite combo. Equip the staff to Krenko. Next generate a Goblin (or multiple). Sac the generated Goblin to Bombardment. This triggers Staff to untap Krenko. Rinse and repeat.

Goblin Sharpshooter can also generate an infinite combo in case you should add Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Thornbite Staff. Equip the Staff to Kiki-Jiki. Use Kiki to make a copy of Sharpshooter. Use one Sharpshooter to damage an opponent, and the other Sharpshooter to either kill itself or the Sharpshooter you used to damage an opponent. This triggers the remaining Sharpshooter to untap itself and it triggers Staff to untap Kiki; resetting your stuff :)

Hope this helps you any. If you have time, I hope you can take a look at one of my decks and comment. Happy brewing!

I love how awesome Goblin Sharpshooter is in this. The overall deck is a great treacherous build, perfect for a politics oriented group game.

Some additional self-defense cards you can consider:Barbed Foliage, Blood Reckoning / Hissing Miasma

DracoDarkstorm, unfortunately, AEther Flash and Polyraptor can not be ended without a third piece, so they actually are just part of a 3-card infinite combo rather than form a 2-card combo by themselves. Thanks though!

Jeyce, with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed on the battlefield, Triskelion will enter as a 5/5. If you remove a counter to hit an opponent, it will be a 4/4. Remove two more to hit itself, and it will die from being a 2/2 that was dealt two damage, then undying will trigger to return to the battlefield.

As for Goblin Sharpshooter and Splinter Twin, the catalyst for the combo is either a creature dying while the enchanted Sharpshooter is untapped or any creature with 1 toughness (or 1 damage away from dying). In both of those cases, the enchanted Sharpshooter can be tapped to create a token copy with haste, and then (if necessary) the token tapped to kill that creature. One the untap trigger(s) resolve, you will have an enchanted Sharpshooter and a token copy. From that point, you can tap the enchanted Sharpshooter for a token copy, tap one of the copies to damage an opponent, then tap the other copy to kill one of the token copies in order to untap the two Sharpshooters in order to repeat until death rains upon all opponents. This is very unintuitive when looking at the pieces, so I've added it to the description of that combo.

Funkydiscogod, fantastic catch on the combos with The Locust God and effects that trigger a draw when an insect enters! Thanks, they've been added.

I've added Keening Stone to the Fraying Sanity combos, thank you so much!

That Chandra combo though... that's definitely a 9-card combo lol

VraskaTheCursed, Sage of Hours cannot keep any counters on it if it activates.

Jeyce, I've added Benthicore to the Splinter Twin combos and Bounding Krasis, Breaching Hippocamp, Great Oak Guardian, and Sparring Mummy to the Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker/Splinter Twin combos. Thank you so much!

I do have those combos for unhasty creatures already, but thanks anyways!

Dorotheus, yes, I am glad however that Minion is unique in its ability to combo with the Bracers though!

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion do not go infinite since Triskelion also has base +1/+1 stopping it from dying when the counters are removed unless you deal all the damage to itself thus being unable to actually damage the opponent.

Same thing with Goblin Sharpshooter and Splinter Twin since the copy is always killing itself to untap the original and the original is always tapping to create the copy.

If you like to create many small elementals you can also use Tempt with Vengeance and Firecat Blitz which actually create elemental cats. I advise to use together with some mass sacrifice outlet such as Ashnod's Altar, Goblin Bombardment or you can just kill them yourself with Goblin Sharpshooter or Subterranean Spirit.

If you like fireworks and you play free for all games Blade of Selves on Omnath, Locus of Rage really make an explosive combo, but it is a bit tricky. The Omnath copies go to the graveyard at the same time as soon as they are created without anyonene getting priority (legendary rule). Then each of those deaths will trigger once on each Omnath that was alive in that very brief moment. So with four players (in free for all) you would create two additional Omnath that would die and trigger six times for a total of 18 points of damage, isn't that fun? The number of triggers increases exponentially with the number of tokens, so if you are playing with more than four players or you happen to have parallel lives on the battlefield you can easily kill one or two players in that moment.

Sismir, for that Sundial of the Infinite trick to work you have to wait until your end step when the delayed triggered ability that says "exile those tokens" is on the stack, then is when you activate the Sundial to end your turn. If you activate it before your end step the delayed triggered will still occur on the next end step, in this scenario means the end step of the next turn.
This way you can trap a commander in the exile forever if you flicker it (with something like Otherworldly Journey) and then you counter or exile the delayed trigger that would bring it back at the beginning of your end step.

Great commander - I run a similar list over at Revenge of the Nibblers in case that list might be of use here.

Have you tested with more card draw and more card-draw- or insects-matter cards like Distant Melody, Keep Watch, Dogpile, Roar of the Crowd, Burn at the Stake, or cometstorm + Ashnod's Altar? Your insects can be direct damage, too, with an Impact Tremors and Purphoros, God of the Forge out or maybe something like Goblin Bombardment + Goblin Sharpshooter.

Happy brewing!

That's the Idea, I have Goblin Bombardment On route, and I have just found my Goblin Sharpshooter and Replaced with Goblin Recruiter Since I haven't had much in the way of need from him so far. While any goblin I want could be good, That only really works if I have a way of drawing again that turn. If I have Skullclamp it works, but I don't really need the Recruiter tbh. In my experience when you stack your deck (in my play group especially) They mill your cards so you don't get it haha.
