I notice you're running the Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth combo for infinite mana. Since you have that, I would suggest adding in a sacrifice outlet like Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, or High Market so that after you take out the first player you can sacrifice her, bring her back to the command zone, recast her, and then start the loop all over again.

Also, what's the reasoning behind Stormbreath Dragon? Love the card but I'm not sure what it's being used for.

Otherwise, love the deck! Never thought about running Fate Unraveler, might have to give it a try.

Ok this is a weird combo but...

Metallic Mimic+Murderous Redcap+Ashnod's Altar/Phyrexian Altar

You cast or put Metallic Mimic into play naming Goblins or Assassins (probably preferably Goblins for your commander's sake) and then put Murderous Redcap into play. Using either artifact, you can sacrifice the redcap and it re-enters with a -1/-1 counter, which is negated thanks to the +1/+1 counter that comes from Metallic Mimic. You can then sacrifice Murderous Redcap any number of times to produce enough mana, since whenever it would enter play with a -1/-1 counter, that counter is automatically negated.

The bonus to this combo is that it essentially becomes an infinite damage (thanks to Murderous Redcap's ability), infinite creature entering play and infinite creature dying combo as well.

The combo also works with any persist creature you may have if you choose to name a different creature type (for example, I use a similar combo with Puppeteer Clique and Bloodspore Thrinax in my Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire deck.

Worm Harvest is actually a fun combo card between cards like Earthcraft, Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar that converts lands in hand for massive amounts of mana, add in The Gitrog Monster, Carnage Altar, and some other effects and you can draw through your whole deck and make an absurd amount of mana, which is pretty fun.

It normally only works in a deck based around abusing tokens though, so not here.

It seems like you're going more on a sacrifice theme at times with the sacrificing goblins and heavy gravepact effects. I would recommend curbing those for a bit more discard effects to work with archfiend of ifnir Archfiend of Ifnir and having a bit more cards that let you discard with the other players. Otherwise, the list is great, though I would probably go without skirk prospector and grab phyrexian altarPhyrexian Altar as a replacement, since it would be getting the same effect but give you more options and let you repeat it without the one card, especially since you don't have any other goblins. I actually love the theme (I'm working on something VERY similar right now myself) The flicker needs to be more heavily in there if you want to work with the purphoros, that or token generation. A 'fun' combo I found for the deck which might be worth trying is necropotenceNecropotence and possessed portalPossessed Portal. Kiki JikiKiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker could work well with hellhole rats, priest of gix, and priest of urabrask, as well as help a little with purphoros damage. Lastly, it might just be my playgroup but some exile would be handy, like dark impostorDark Impostor or vraskas contemptVraska's Contempt just in case of indestructible shenanigans. Another good card to recur creatures is Phyrexian Reclamation Phyrexian Reclamation

TLDR; As it stands adjustments IN: Phyrexian reclamation, Kiki Jiki?, dark imposter/vraskas contempt OUT: Skirk Prospector, Dictate/Grave/Butcher(only 1 removed)

Of course, these are just my own opinions, you might have thought about some of these and already figured what is better. I'd appreciate you letting me know if you have any response to my feedback. Enjoy the completed deck!

So a buddy of mine pointed out to me that Phyrexian Altar could be nice here.

You attack with a bunch of creatures when you have yuriko out and blocks happen (if they happen). You sac a blocked creature and yuriko to the altar for colors and put yuriko back in the command zone. Then after blocks but before damage you ninjustu her back in to guarantee another trigger.

Useful for when you dont have a ninja attacking or dont have the arcane adaptation yet to help speed through the deck and is a another piece of consistency. Especially after a notorious throng when you have a bunch of tokens to sac to the altar

Myth Unbound + Phyrexian Altar + Rhys the Redeemed/Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter lets you draw your deck, plus any ETB/LBT/cast shenanigans that may be involved. Dunno if there's a winning combo to be found here.
