Treasure Nabber Discussion

I would cut crucible unless you're running all of the fetch lands. Treasure Nabber and Mycosynth Lattice are an amazing combo. Saheeli's Artistry is another good C18 card for the deck. And Metalworker is another one.Daretti, King of Value Town! that's my daretti deck if you want to take a look

Ocelot44 I appreciate the recs! I own all of those cards already except Last Chance and Warrior's Oath, but I certainly have thought about putting them in. I actually have no problem playing mass land destruction which probably seems mean but it's the honest way to combat excessive ramp and really good nonbasic land bases. Plus if I'm set up and I blow up lands it would be a potential game winner. I totally get it--I'm just not sure what I'd take out for the cards you've suggested. Anything seem particularly weak to you? Lately, I've been even considering adding Treasure Nabber for some board control on artifacts and added potential ramp.
Appreciate the comment and upvote!

Help Needed for making this deck Optimized. Also I could have missed some combo potential, just started Magic in 2018. Thinking about adding more Infinite Mana Combos like Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth and Staff of DominationWalking Ballista for Mana sink/additional wincon.
Things that are on my "Cut"-List
Thran Dynamo Good Manarock but, I sometimes just need colored Mana more
One with the Machine Draws 3-4 cards most of the time and fits the Artifact Theme. But there is Better draw, just mention it.
Sphinx Summoner 5 mana Tutor. Meh.
Sydri, Galvanic Genius combos with Aetherflux, but otherwise not useful in my opinion.
Vampiric Tutor Straight out of Budget, using proxy at the moment
Trash for Treasure Sorcery Speed. Early Trash for Treasure isn't useful most of the time.
Cards I really want to play:
Darksteel Forge Protection
Mycosynth Lattice With the lattice, mostly none of your opponents play Artifact Boardwipes anymore. But High CMC
Treasure Nabber In a format that play so many Mana rocks this dude seems great. With KCI you can still sac the rocks for more mana
Memnarch Mana sink/combo with Pili-Pala combo to get Everything. High CMC
Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer Save half of your artifacts on a Destroy Boardwipe. Save important Artifacts for sacing Thopters
Storm the Vault It's land version is even banned
Semblance Anvil More reduce is good.
Mindslaver Hard to achieve but having his effect multiple times and controlling everyone is just a win.
Indomitable Archangel Protection, but high CMC
Blinkmoth Urn If you play an artifact Deck and your opponents don't it's just crazy
All in all for slower/longer games I need much more draw
But these aren't artifacts
Commander's Sphere are reusable

Zedruu was my first deck, and aside from some differences in budget, I wanted to ask about a few of your specific choices.
The following cards I'm not sure why they were included in your list. Could you sell me on them? Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre Am I missing a way to cheat his cost? Scroll Rack and Search for azcanta - Do you need more draw/advantage? Rule of Law -Aren't you the low curve+draw who would want to play multiple cards morseso than most? Temple Bell - Is it a combo I'm missing?
Others I'm already tempted by but haven't been able to test yet Humility - Absent of tokens and using a commander which gives card advantage, do you break parity? Dack Fayden I recently added Treasure Nabber, on top of running Embargo and Stony Silence- Do you think Dack performs well enough to still be included? Stranglehold is so powerful. I currently run Aven Mindcensor and love the effect. Why did you choose Strangle over Aven? Would it be worth running both? Helm of Obedience I'm just not familiar with. How much do you normally put into X? If X = 3 and it is 4 to cast, 7 cmc for a random creature... It could be great but I assume you'd hit a lot of 2-3 cmc creatures no? Copy Enchantment I recently added Copy Artifact reasoning that it could function as a rock as a minimum each game and has a high ceiling- but I'm not sure about copying enchantments since so many are static effects that are redundant to have multiple. Am I misperceiving it?
Finally, I was curious about your Solemnity. I run it as well and at the time it was great. Stopping +1/+1 counters, experience counters... But now I never see those. I love that it can combo well with Delaying Shield (in my case) and Phyrexian Unlife (in your case) but I don't know if that warrants keeping it.

Playtesting a few changes:
Reforge the Soul out for future Experimental Frenzy.
Price of Glory out for Mycosynth Lattice - This is an odd switch, but I haven't really been feeling the impact of PoG for a long time. Putting in the lattice is more for trolling my playgroup than anything, but it just so happens to have some hilarious interactions. Of course it makes Vandalblast amazing (and dangerous for another person to cast, but it is very rare in my playgroup). It also makes Daretti, Scrap Savant, Goblin Welder, and //static.tappedout.net/cache/02/89/0289bd00ec63de74a0c78910e877013b.pngGoblin Thrashmaster better. Ashnod's Altar becomes much stronger ramp when I don't need to make red mana anymore.
The most fun interaction though comes in the form of Treasure Nabber. With the Lattice out, when opponents tap their lands it means I gain control of them at the end of their turn, and if I have Blood Moon or Magus of the Moon out I can sacrifice all the non-basics and the regular mountains to make Goblins!
A lot of my future changes, and a lot of my past changes for that matter, would be considered "sub-optimal", but what I've found is that playing into the politics of EDH and having rare or surprising effects has gone in my favor a lot more than brute token generating efficiency ever did. This means that my deck is constantly in flux, but it is more fresh that way, and I don't get bored with it that often.

I think Goblin Trashmaster is he biggest standout from the latest few sets. Legion Warboss is decent but probably better in a Krenko shell. Goblin Cratermaker seems great in EDH too. Treasure Nabber could be good and lots of fun. It'll have a big target on its back for sure but that's what Feldon is for. Goblin Instigator might be better than Dragon Fodder. Dark-Dweller Oracle has a bit of synergy with Feldon's ability and goblin tokens. Enough to make it worth it? Not sure.

And maybe Black Market would help you make even more mana.
Like the deck!!

Really nice goblin deck :) I'd love to see what has become of it.
Gonna look into some of the cards you are playing for my own. Have you considered Lightning Crafter? Easily one of my favourite cards. I'm sure you have since then added Treasure Nabber and Goblin Trashmaster
