Krenko is here and trying to play

Commander / EDH Goblins Mono-Red Tribal



Through this together with cards I had around. Not sure really what to add.

Few cards for Krenko I've found to be pretty handy:

Goblin Assassin: sure he may kill half the tokens that Krenko creates every time you tap, but it also means you're likely to keep your opponent's board clear.

Goblin Chirurgeon: always good to be able to sac a goblin token in order to save carded goblins you have out.

I've had a lot of luck with effects that care about my goblins coming and going since they'll die so often. Rage Thrower, Flameblade Angel, and Vicious Shadows are all good for this.

Umbral Mantle and Aggravated Assault will both go infinite with the Skirk Prospector you already have in the deck, as well as combo off with the cards that care about your creatures dying.

You already have a cards that take advantage of your numbers advantage, but I would suggest Kyren Negotiations to really take advantage of that, especially with Throne of the God-Pharaoh set to come out later this month.

The most OP cards you can pair with Krenko are: anything that untaps him.

Thornbite Staff goes infinite with any sac engine.

Sword of the Paruns goes infinite with any sac-for-mana engine.

If infinite's not your style (I used to play Krenko, and I discovered that it wasn't my style - I always felt like I'd robbed everyone of a good game whenever I went infinite), there are other options.

Magewright's Stone is outstanding. Thousand-Year Elixir is better. Rings of Brighthearth is best of all. Illusionist's Bracers are a poor substitute, but still phenomenal.

I would make your goblins' power your top priority: Goblin Pyromancer is actually really good, if your board has haste. Shared Animosity is going to be Coat of Arms one day when it grows up, and both belong in Krenko decks.

I wouldn't worry so much about stuff like Wave of Indifference or Stun - just let the dudes get blocked, they're super expendable.

Thornbite Staff actually goes infinite by itself, as long as your goblins are 1/1

Incorrect - using the staff's "1 damage" ability costs 2 mana.
