It is advisable to have someone like Caerwyn move the thread to a more appropriate forum.

Still, it will be best to give you some advise.

Honestly, the deck is just a bunch of small dudes that are very close to being weak vanilla with no synergy. 2/2 for 3 mana that sacrifices itself to make 2 mana is not very impressive, especially when you have no expensive cards to spend that mana on. You get 0 utility out of Faithless Looting , as none of your cards want to be in the graveyard.

The crux is the 4 Sparkspitter , but that is not impressive. It takes a whole turn and 4 mana to turn a mountain into a Spark Elemental , which is not very powerful.

My advice - focus on Smokebraider . It is an incredibly powerful tool that can allow you to win the games. IT and Soulbright Flamekin combo very well to give you 8 mana for 6 mana invested and trample. Then you can take that mana and invest it in the Inner-Flame Igniter which for 9 gives you +3/+0 and first strike on all your dudes.

Soulbright Flamekin could be included as a Trigger, since it can pay for itself if you have 6 mana.

Just activate 3 times, get 8x {R}, return to hand with combo and repeat. It also gives trample, so it makes the unlimited power combo better.

According to gatherer: "When Soulbright Flamekin’s ability resolves, it counts the number of times that same ability from that same creature has already resolved that turn." So if it's recast, the countdown resets.

Temur elementals feels the way to go. It also gives access to Young Pyromancer which gets a little silly with reef.

Its worth looking at turns 1-2-3 and planning around that- elementals has amazing options;

Old spellslinger cards like Nivmagus Elemental , value like Voice of Resurgence , Flickerwisp and Mulldrifter , a blink subtheme with Shorecrasher Elemental , tribal cards like Brighthearth Banneret and Rage Forger , staples like Fulminator Mage , weird synergy/combo like Vesperlark / Reveillark or Necroskitter , a land animation subtheme( Wind Zendikon , Sylvan Awakening , etc), combo ramp in Soulbright Flamekin / Runaway Steam-Kin / Storm Entity , take over the game cards like Spawnwrithe , graveyard strats like Vengevine / Splinterfright / Thunderkin Awakener .

There is enough support for pretty much anything from control to aggro- it just needs a dig into what synergies you need and what supporting cards make that good.

@ThrunTheTroll628

Your points are absolutely valid and I can definitely understand why you'd believe that godo is a slower deck that shouldn't be considered as high-power as it is. Here I'll hopefully show reasonable counterpoints to your arguments.
Forgive me if I'm wrong (@otherGodoPlayers) but Godo is considered a 0 card combo, as all you need to have is mana. It's irrelevant what's in hand, or on board, as you require only 11 mana to win. Furthermore, there are combos that become 1-card and require 5 mana fewer to pull off.

A fantastic example is Panharmonicon . This card allows you to search for Hammer of Nazahn in addition to helm, meaning that godo enters, gains indestructible and equips for no additional cost. Panharmonicon is also replaced in this instance by any "copy" effect - ie Heat Shimmer , Twinflame etc. all allow you to pull off this same effect for significantly less mana.

If you look into the extensive amount of work, time and research that went into this brew, you'll find that many cEDH players ie gtoast99, insertcleverphrasehere have spent a lot of time refining builds to come up with an evenly stax & combo efficient build. Looking at some builds that are only ritual effects and combo pieces, I could understand you'd be convinced the deck has flaws. But it's been proven time and time again that the best pilots show how worthy the deck is of it's tiered placement.
When you look at cards like Treasonous Ogre you may think "well, I'll add a mana here or there", but you could - in a godo build, see it as a single card that ends the game, as you have a 0 card combo in the command zone.

Admittedly, when you begin reviewing cards such as Soulbright Flamekin I can understand that the mana investment may not seem strong enough. Nonetheless, with all the fast mana available - the deck consistently pressures wins from 1-2 cards required. Though ritualling to victory is still an option

Absolutely fairly - you've found the crux of the deck. A pilot needs this card to resolve, or it's all for naught. With that in mind, I believe most decks run the full suite of blue specific counters, some even using Burnout . This is not always enough, but comparatively, often charbelcher wins legacy tournaments, just because sometimes you luck out and your opponents don't open with Force of Will . For that reason, both decks are considered strong
Yes, you've got a great point. Godo folds to A LOT of stax cards, but similar to the above, it consistently wins before these are an issue.

This point could be summed up with the above, but it's relevant for me to mention that many decks have switched from some of the above stax pieces to combat Flash -hulk decks, as they're just as fast as godo, but have more interaction and a greater consistent speed. While Torpor Orb & friends are great, most people have cut it from lists, as it doesn't do enough to combat the more common threats.
