Creature — Goblin
Whenever Mogg Maniac is dealt damage, it deals that much damage to target opponent.

And maybe Black Market would help you make even more mana.

@louisjrt Thanks. I really appreciate your suggestions. I have Goblin War Strike and Boggart Shenanigans in the deck already so they are certainly useful to me. Bloodmark Mentor was actually cut pretty recently, but I still think it's a decent option. Stingscourger is also pretty good in my opinion. Mogg Maniac and Goblin Taskmaster look like they could be fun to build around, in fact I'd never seen the latter before. Jeering Instigator is interesting, but you'd probably be better served using a cheaper option mana-wise like Kari Zev's Expertise. Final Fortune and Relentless Assault are certainly playable as well if you are so inclined, Aggravated Assault is another option if you favour repeatability.

I chose not to run them because I don't run a lot of creatures. I focused more on ramp and draw to deal with the Boros Curse and abuse FS/SS. I also chose big blowout spells so I can keep as many cards in my hand as possible.

In terms of dealing lots of damage to everyone, you could run a Heartless Hidetsugu and hope that you can get everyone low enough to burn to death before you get killed by their creatures. In terms of defensive cards, you could use Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs to discourage attacks against you, or Mogg Maniac or Boros Reckoner to chump block big creatures and get in some extra damage.

The defending player will end up taking 8 damage total. They attacker may assign 8 to the Mogg Maniac causing it's triggered ability to deal all 8, or, more likely, 1 damage to the Mogg Maniac and 7 to the defending player, causing the trigger to deal the last 1. Or anywhere in between.

Mogg Maniac is on the battlefield with no enchantments, and gets Shocked, would the opponent take two damage although the maniac only has one toughness? Also, if Mogg Maniac blocked Force of Nature would the attacker take eight damage or just one because of the trample's rollover damage?

precociousapprentice Most of the combinations are 3+ combos in this deck although there is a lot of cross synergy. I have been delightfully surprised by how often this deck wins and who it wins against. It does not fare well against cEDH though...
I completely agree about the mana base. Although Traveler's Amulet and Wanderer's Twig rarely slow me down. I definitely find them superior to tap lands as I get solid land drops and color fixing. I have been gradually upgrading the mana bases if my decks and this one is next in queue. I rarely find that i don't have the mana to play my spells though. I believe the card draw from Marchesa mixed with fetching so many lands helps a little with that.
I think Tainted Strike is one of the cards you might actually like! It is not usually for your own creatures. It is for when an opponent is attacking another opponent turning a non lethal attack into a game changer. Although it does have some other applications. The Boros Reckoner as you meantioned and the similar friends, Mogg Maniac, Spitemare, Stuffy Doll but also Harsh Justice, Mirror Strike, Backlash (which I go back and forth having in the deck) but my absolute favorites are Arcbond, Coalhauler Swine, and Heartless Hidetsugu with a protection/redirection spell out. all of these get increased with the damage doubling effects out.
After reading what you wrote about Aikido, I have been thinking about what I could add to make it more political. Do you have any recommendations? This deck is much more about tricking my opponents into attacking me and dissuasion through them knowing I have tricks. With all of the Damage doubling and especially with Repercussion out the intensity of the game goes through the roof as all attacks if they go wrong can go wrong quickly and in a big way. I do love the adrenaline that this deck brings to the table and how quickly they games can go. In that way our decks are very different I think.
Thank you for the upvote!
