It works differently depending on what "reset" button you use. A reset button is required though because tree's ability will make Mairsil's toughness higher than 4. I'll also note at this point that it can be a convenient combo to go for since Buried Alive grabs all of it but it isn't the best one to go for.
If you use AEtherling as part of it then the combo is actually more complex than it needs to be. If you use Pack Rat as part of it then it becomes more mana but simpler and easier to do. I'll show that version below step by step.
Step 1: tap Mairsil to set target player to 4 life and Mairsil's toughness to that player's life total
Step 2: pay to do 4 damage to that player
Step 3: "reset" Mairsil by paying and discarding a card
This makes a copy of mairsil. Let the original Mairsil die. Repeat steps 1 through 3 until all opponents are dead.

IMMG54 sorry I didn't see your comment earlier, for some reason I wasn't notified...
At this point Spikeshot will read as : 4 damage to any target
Perdition will read as : set target player to 4 life
Start by Mairsil to set an opponent to 4 life then pay to do 4 damage to that player then pay to exile Mairsil until end of turn. When he returns he will be back to 4 toughness and you can do the same to the next opponent.

Mairsil, the Pretender tends towards combos but some of them are more like wicked interactions and are not infinite.

I love Mairsil, the Pretender . He can be troublesome to get going because you really need to cage a flicker effect like AEtherling . Once that is out of the way though he turns into one of the hardest to kill commanders I've ever played or seen played. I usually don't kill people with commander damage like a normal voltron deck does but the option is there. Usually I combo off with him in some gross fashion like Tree of Perdition + Spikeshot Elder . Still I tend to think of the deck in a manner similar to voltron because of how commander reliant it is.

Took a look over the list. Have a couple questions to ask first before I can offer you some cards you can consider!
- What is your budget? How much are you willing to spend for a single card?
- Is there any house rules you play by? Ex. No infinite combo, No land destruction, etc.
- Aside from tribal theme, what deck direction do you want to go to? Aggro, combo, value? Some cards right away I would add albeit is Goblin Matron , Spikeshot Elder , Goblin Sharpshooter , Dark-Dweller Oracle , Goblin Ringleader , and Thornbite Staff . Pretty much value cards that a core Krenko should have, you have most of the great Goblin cards needed. Looking forward to hearing your response!
