I play against a Krenko deck all the time, and it's always great fun. Some cards my friend runs that I noticed you don't:

Shared Animosity (this is his favorite card in the whole deck), Burn at the Stake for huge damage they can't block, Chaos Warp is important for instant speed removal in red. Mogg Infestation is absolutely hilarious and can double your board size for a win out of nowhere. Skullclamp is practically a necessity since you have so many 1/1s that it would allow you to draw tons of cards.

Cards to remove, or that I think the above performs better than:

Magma Spray, Thunderous Wrath, Magma Spray- these are okay, but Chaos Warp makes better removal, Gempalm Incinerator makes better creature removal. Burn at the Stake will typically make better a better win condition, too, as 4 damage to a player is easily removed by Oloro, Ageless Ascetic's ability, Thragtusk, Soul Warden, etc., while Burn at the Stake has the ability to completely outdamage those life gain sources.

Colossus of Akros isn't all that great. I figure he's probably a placeholder for something better, and Skullclamp can be that something.

Yes! I have a Thornbite Staff in another deck currently and I'm going to take it out soon! Goblin Bombardment is on my want list currently!

Thank you for the input!

If you face a lot of Counter magic from your opponents you can run Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast. That allows you to counter their attempts to counter you. It keeps you on your game plan. Both can be combined with Isochron Scepter for repeated use to either ensure you never get countered, or give hell to your opponents running Blue.

You know I haven't faced a lot surprisingly as of late. But I have pyroblast in another deck and will add red elemental blast back to my want list! Thanks for the input!

That's good. What kind of weaknesses in the deck did you notice tonight?

Probably could've used some of those counter spells the first game I played, I didn't end up doing much that game, I got a little mana screwed. Had to put my eggs in the Krenko, Mob Boss + Altar of the Brood for the mil. Couldn't get anything going really. Second game went well, got Warstorm Surge out and cleared the board then got Coat of Arms for 20 +20/+20 goblins. Game over.

One of the biggest suggestions I can offer as a Krenko player myself is running Vicious Shadows, Anger and also Eldrazi Monument. The biggest problem I have had is that everyone recognizes that he is a big threat, and so they try and get rid of him as quick as possible. Anger makes it so that you can at the very least tap him to make more goblins, hopefully with Purphoros, God of the Forge or Impact Tremors out. The other thing that can be a downside to krenko is boardwipes. Eldrazi Monument counteracts some boardwipes as well as gives your creatures flying, and Vicious Shadows is essentially the best thing you can do when all of your creatures get destroyed. If they do get destroyed, Vicious Shadows essentially wins you the game. Hope you have fun with Krenko, he's pretty awesome!

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll keep my eyes open for some of these cards for sure!
