I'd definitely drop Implements of Sacrifice and Treasure Keeper, and recommend dropping Cathodion, Order of Whiteclay, and Feldon too. Seems like it could use more sac outlets like Arcbound Ravager, Goblin Bombardment, Culling Dais, Dark-Dweller Oracle, Fanatical Devotion, Jinxed Idol, Krark-Clan Shaman, and Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer. I'd also think about any of the creatures that make Treasure when they enter or die, Brass's Bounty, Smothering Tithe, Hangarback Walker, Hoarding Dragon, Scrapyard Recombiner, Servo Schematic, Bloodfire Infusion

Looks good! You might like these: Herald of Leshrac, Rotting Rats, Palace Jailer (this one is neat because you can sack and reanimate him to exile multiple creatures. opps won't get their creatures back unless they become monarch. he also replaces himself with the monarch draw which is nice), Dark-Dweller Oracle, Mangara of Corondor (activate the ability, then sack Mangara while the ability is on the stack. it will resolve but Mangara will not be exiled), Skullclamp, Pitiless Plunderer, Grim Haruspex, Shifting Shadow, Fanatical Devotion, Bishop of Rebirth, Custodi Soulcaller, Stingscourger, Crackling Doom, Siege-Gang Commander, Bounty Agent

Is Dark-Dweller Oracle a placeholder for something?

I don't know how mean your meta is, but to take a page from legacy goblins you may want to pack some disruption in the deck. Thorn of Amethyst is a favorite of mine for decks that run 30+ creatures, and you may want to run something like Ruination in addition to your Blood Moon. Trinisphere is good if you want to be a douche. Since you're not running all TOO many artifacts with activated abilities, you could adjust the list to be more conducive to running something like Null Rod. It can be brutal in the right pod.

If you do run Null Rod, it'll turn off your Skullclamp. There are, luckily, non-artifact-based card advantage sources you have access to. Consider Outpost Siege, Experimental Frenzy (maybe), Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Commune with Lava, Wheel of Fortune/Reforge the Soul, Dark-Dweller Oracle, Sensation Gorger, etc. I think you can get away with hating on artifacts without giving up too much. Note that Null Rod does not turn off your Ruby Medallion.

Price of Glory is good. Grafdigger's Cage is arguably the best piece of disruption in EDH right now, and unless I'm missing something it doesn't hurt you at all. I'd definitely run it.

You may want to consider Mass Hysteria instead of Fervor. Being one mana is a big deal, since a quarter of your deck is three-mana and Mass Hysteria will free up t3 to cast a creature. My only reservation is that if you're playing against a mono-green elves strategy, it's not as good a card. 'Course, they frequently run Concordant Crossroads, so it may not matter...

Gamble is a pretty good tutor in mono-red.

Goblin Assassin is a card to consider if you want to go more midrange-y. You can sac the tokens Krenko, Mob Boss makes and effectively have a repeatable edict effect on the table.

You may also want to consider running a few more powerful non-basics. Since you're running Pyroblast, I assume you're in a relatively blue-heavy meta. If you have $50 to blow, Cavern of Souls is a great card. Ancient Tomb is also good, but it's also pricy.

A note on Pyroblast: In mono-red, I think Red Elemental Blast is very, very marginally better. In 99% of cases, it won't matter, but Red Elemental Blast can't get Misdirection-ed or Commandeer-ed onto a non-blue spell. People frequently run Pyroblast over Red Elemental Blast when they run Dack Fayden so that if he ults then they can steal a permanent for {r}. Here, though, I think Red Elemental Blast is technically better. By a tiny, tiny bit.

Faithless Looting gives you a good measure of card-selection. Same with Thrill of Possibility, which is an instant.

Right. That's all I got -- let me know if you have any questions.

Good luck

I don't think Dark-Dweller Oracle is supposed to be in the list

G’morning. Glad to here my “sliver” deck was a spark of inspiration for ya. I do like your idea for using your queen in non-sliver fashion. I think the best way to pull it off is in the direction you started: aristocrats. A whole sliver load of ideas started popping off in my head like popcorn upon reading your comment on my profile page. Let’s get started. Biomancer's Familiar and/or Training Grounds would be 2 musts to help pull this off without needing an infinite mana combo. Not saying to not have one or more of those combos in the deck but in case you aren’t drawing into combo pieces those 2 would make using her ability a lot easier. If nothing it would help make infinite critters in the altar process as well. And for aristocrat side it doesn’t necessarily have to be all blood artist effects either. You could also go with sac a creature to draw a card effect and go with a Laboratory Maniac win. Could also go with Dark-Dweller Oracle and play your whole deck in one turn with the infinite mana and creatures side of things. Will comment further as I think of more ideas. Until then, happy building.
