I believe as stated above Thornbite Staff is a near must for this deck, additionally in any mono red aggro i find running out of gas a huge issue solved by draw like Reforge the Soul , Faithless Looting and Wheel of Fortune . Without going through every goblin I’m not sure how your haste situation is but Mass Hysteria is always great for aggro

BMHKain on What to add/cut for cEDH ...

@Burg+1: I checked the deck out just to see if it even has enough in it to handle even Tier 3 Decks in cEDH. I'm truly sorry to say, I'd rather have Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger befriend Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur & Sheoldred, Whispering One , Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur for Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger & Urabrask the Hidden , Sheoldred, Whispering One for Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger & Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite , Urabrask the Hidden for Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite & Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur , & lastly, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite for Sheoldred, Whispering One & Urabrask the Hidden . Phyrexia has all 5 colors now. If they are stronger than Pre-Mending Era Phyrexians (Not counting Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , they need to set their differences aside, & use those differences as their better abilities. Case in point, The deck is just more casual than what I'm trying to aim for. Maybe Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer is Tier 4; but that's not what I'm aiming to do. What I'm aiming for is to get more CMDRS to Tier 3 the least; & even your deck would shame its status on a tierlist that measures the very status of each CMDR in cEDH. I can't apologize enough, man. It's an effort; albeit not what I wanted to do...

...But since you have a deck that utilizes artifice; I've been working on 5 Strategies that have been known to prevail in cEDH; so I STILL have a use just for you; in spite of not knowing what cEDH is...

As I'm working on Combo 2/5, which allows the use of infinite Colored mana in only these colors: , , . I wanted to use a Artifact Mana Dork is opposed to your usual Rock, I had three kinds of ways for them to make mana: Pili-Pala , Opaline Unicorn (& her other Tap for mana variants.), & Prismite . Since I wanted some way to make infinite mana this way; w/o running out of gas. Sure, is what this deck wants, but I can't go infinite w/ Grand Architect (It is in .), but... Maybe there's another way... Those Kiki-Jiki combos... Not using Thornbite Staff , Maybe something like Opaline Unicorn + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + (One more thing...), is there a copier in that can copy either? I'm just interested now...

I hadn't thought of Thornbite Staff with Gisa, that's wild - yet another way to trigger several of the infinite combo tricks in here. Going to seriously consider adding that card, thanks bushido_man96.

I love your Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Rite of Replication combo. That just nasty. Bontu's Monument is a solid piece, too. I've added it to the list of my Zombie tribal deck. I play a Dimir one with Gisa and Geralf as the Commander. A nice piece of equipment I like to run with Ghoulcaller Gisa is Thornbite Staff .

I highly recommend Thornbite Staff for Marrow-Gnawer , it allows you to go infinite with rat production. I run a very similar deck The Pied Piper if your interested in comparing. Mine seems to have consistency issues, at least in one v. one games: just not enough big tempo plays. I'm curious how yours fairs?

At 38 lands, I think you could get away with cutting one to run The Gitrog Monster .

I'm not sure why you have Batterskull here...I get that its a great equipment card, and beating face is fun like that, but it seems to me that you want to be getting value from Glissa. Cards like Viridian Longbow , Pathway Arrows , and Thornbite Staff provide you with instant value from Glissa.

I notice you are very tutor-heavy, as well. You might consider dropping one or two to make room for other cards you want to run.
