Mogg Maniac Discussion

Hey JaceGoBoom :)
Just wanted to let you know that I really like your deck...
Well actually, it’s not only that:
When I started playing EDH I decided that I only wanted to have legendary dragons as commander. After building the easier ones I’m now at the point where I go for the „un-build-able“ and yeah, four of the Kamigawa Dragons appear to be at least a challenge because you always have to jump through so many hoops to get the when it dies trigger. After making Keiga, the Tide Star and Jugan, the Rising Star work I thought that’s it, I will never find a way to make Ryusei, the Falling Star into a deck and that’s when I found your list. And you did it! And your solution is so simple and therefore brilliant: Clones! And you also did it on a budget which is just super impressive :)
What I perhaps like the most is the sub-theme with Mogg Maniac and Coalhauler Swine. I like it so much that I’d like to suggest adding Spiteful Sliver and if you ever want to build it non budget Repercussion.
The last card that might be of interest is Weaponize the Monsters for Makeshift Munitions. Although it costs more to activate it deals more damage and also lets you shoot any target which could be an upside.
That’s it from my side. Thanks again for your deck building effort, description and especially charing it with the rest of the world :)

Lord_reficuL my retired decks seem to get more attention then my active decks these last 2 weeks or so, lol. It has been a long while since I toyed with this idea but I'll do my best with it.
My biggest problem with it was always mana. Mana, mana, mana... Never felt like I had enough at any point in the game. Card draw may also be an issue but I could never play enough things to find out. Another problem I was running into was needing 3 pieces to really make the deck run well. An enrager, a protection piece, and an activator. It'll run without the protection piece but not very well... You may have found having Avacyn, Angel of Hope or one of the other protectors in play is really fun. I know I had a blast when that happened.
The deck was never really designed with "how do I win" but more "how do I get more value". My main idea was to get multiple enragers in play and one activator that can hit them all. That is why Marath was chosen. His colors helped the most and he could ping my guys or protect them a bit with a +1/+1 counter. But better than him are the earthquake effects. Pyrohemia in particular was my favorite interaction.
In order to make this run smoother I think you have to whack the top end of the deck off. At an average CMC of 4.1 it is too slow for your goal of winning between turns 6 and 8. You'll want to focus in on a way of doing things rather than my method of being all over the place. I think tokens and +1/+1 counters ought to be the way this focuses. You might remove the following to free up some space for mana or card draw: Wall of Hope, Stuffy Doll, Spitemare, Ravenous Daggertooth, Mogg Maniac, Coalhauler Swine, Cacophodon, and Boros Reckoner.
Hope that all helps. Let me know if you have any more questions or if I didn't answer something satisfactory. :)

As for Basilisk Collar that is definitely something I think I'd like to include. With Nin, it would take me a turn getting rid of an opponents creature, unless I built in multiple ways to untap Nin at will so I can activate her ability several times a turn if needed.
From my play testing, if I don't draw stuffy I generally get it very soon with Nin's ability. But there have been a few games where stuffy is at the bottom and very difficult to aquire. But does show up once I get a tutor. I have been actively testing and trying to improve this deck over and over again.
Thank you for your comment, and suggestions. This is my favorite of all of my decks and I tend to it as soon as I find a positive change

This is a cool idea, although since there's not a lot of ways to assure you get the Doll, you end up just playing a kind of standard Izzet deck. Redundancy for Stuffy Doll in these colors is scarce, but you could run Mogg Maniac . Not indestructible, but will do the thing at least once. Too bad we don't have the 5cmc part of the Trinket Mage cycle yet.
Also, Nin loves Basilisk Collar .
