carpecanum thanks for the feedback, Cloudstone Curio is great but definitely out of my price range for the deck, Grim Feast seems like perfect flavour and the life gain is pretty relevant, if I can find a copy it is a strong contender. Unnatural Hunger is flavourful but very minimal utility for its cost.

If you already own a Cloudstone Curio you can bounce and play your one drops for a bunch of food every turn.

Grim Feast for flavor. Maybe Unnatural Hunger .

If you're playing Cloudstone Curio in this deck with these commanders and you aren't running Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip and the 0 mana Kobolds then you're missing out on a much more practical combo win than the graveyard shenanigans with Blood Artist style effects.

With Curio in play, cast Birgi, cast Rog, cast any 1cmc red creature or a 0 mana Kobold, and then continuously bounce Rog and the other creature to generate infinite red mana off Birgi triggers. Use a final Rog cast to bounce the Birgi, cast Birgi as an artifact now. Cast any non artifact creature (you can discard cards in hand to the Horn to find a creature if needed, or if using Dockside Extortionist plus Rog you'll be able to cast Tymna) and bounce the Rog. Discard the Rog to the Horn to exile the top 2 of the library, Rog returns to the command zone. Recast Rog, bounce the extra creature, recast the extra creature and bounce the Rog, discard the Rog to exile 2 more. Rinse repeat until you draw and play the whole library for a win.

This line of play in Rog/Tymna decks is much more reliable than graveyard lines of play due to the pletora of yard hate in the format and the combo mana loop itself mostly relies on creature casts that are far less likely to be poached by blue interaction. Ranger-Captain of Eos is both a nice tutor for a Kobold and a protection piece for when you combo off and can supplement the Abolisher and Silence as protective elements.

This compliments the Impact Tremors + Cloudstone Curio lines of play as well as any 2 Kobolds also generate a win, again avoiding yard hate and most permission elements. Both of these lines of play do rely on Curio though so at least one additional non Curio related game winning line of play should be included as a back up, and for this Opposition Agent + Maralen of the Mornsong is quite ideal in terms of card slot efficiency.

I do not recommend the Blood Artist lines in this deck as they are equally card slot inefficient as the Birgi set up but far more vulnerable and significantly less useful outside of the combo, though the Kobolds are really only nice with a Skullclamp on the board. Koll, the Forgemaster + Skullclamp +any Kobold (including the commander) is a nifty little draw engine though providing 2 cards for every invested to keep you gassed up.

I'm still testing about 12-15 card slots in my build at the moment (my meta includes a lot of disruptive opposing decks keen on exiling cards so I've got one additional combo win line with the Mystic Forge + Sensei's Divining Top combo in there as well), but after a number of games the Cloudstone Curio set ups centered around Birgi and the Kobolds have proven to be ideal.

This card is just so sweet it's fun to play in every format I've seen it in and I particularly enjoy this card in Commander lately. Just what red needed to be honest. The number of cool things she enables is nearly limitless.

I've been obsessed the past few days after stumbling upon the Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip+ Cloudstone Curio + Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh + any of the old school random Kobold (or even any 1 cmc red creature) combos. Just run Rog as the "Commander" and it's a sweet all in one infinite mana and draw engine that bypasses hate effects from cards like Hullbreacher . Been jamming this combo in all sorts of color combos and it's been a lot of fun.

What cool things have you been doing with Birgi lately?

Don’t you need a Silence effect with the Breach combo since opponents will eventually draw into interaction? Am I overlooking something?

As another fun combo option; since you’re heavy on Sunforger and already running Dockside Extortionist and Boros Charm - if you replace Reverberate with Reiterate and make room for Cloudstone Curio , Dockside and Cloudstone make infinite mana which you can dump into Sunforger into Reiterate copying infinite 4 damage Charms :)

So, I want to add an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger , as I have the possibility of bouncing and recasting amount of times with Cloudstone Curio and Animar, Soul of Elements , essentially exiling my opponents boards entirely. I have this effect with destroy with Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre and also damage by bouncing Ancestral Statue and having Impact Tremors or Purph on the board. If I have Animar on the board, I guess I have the opportunity to put an arbitrarily large number of +1/+1 counters on them as well, and have free bouncy Eldrazi. YAY! FUN FOR EVERYONE!

Advice on what to cut would be super helpful
