When Dockside Extortionist enters the battlefield, create X Treasure tokens, where X is the number of artifacts and enchantments your opponents control. (Treasure tokens are artifacts with ", Sacrifice this artifact: Gain one mana of any colour.")

Lots of changes recently. Added the following, removing Words of Wind, Reality Heist, Whir of Invention, and Vedalken Archmage:
Thassa's Oracle (Great win con when you get to the bottom of your library)
Transplant Theorist (Replaced the archmage)
Ingenious Artillerist (Redundancy for Reckless Fireweaver)
Dockside Extortionist (It's just too good not to include)
Drafna, Founder of Lat-Nam (This guy is great for keeping the storm going by returning your cheap mana rocks to your hand to recast)
plakjekaas on A Discussion of Staples

I think it's amazing someone starts a thread for this question every 2 years :P
Staples are the cards that people will raise an eyebrow if you didn't include them if your colors would allow to. Green without Cultivate? Red without Dockside Extortionist? Blue without Mana Drain? White without Smothering Tithe? Black without Demonic Tutor? Any deck without Sol Ring? You need a reason not to include them in your deck, because they're that good.
Budget is an excellent reason for most of them to not be included though, because there's an enormous run on al cards that could become staples, and if their rarity is rare or higher, prepare to empty the wallet.
Or a desire to build unique decks. My Klothys, God of Destiny deck I've mentioned before plays no artifacts, no planeswalkers, and only a handful of instants/sorceries. No Sol Ring, no Dockside Extortionist, not even Chaos Warp or Cultivate. I deemed they don't fit the deck, so they're not in it, even though I acknowledge the deck would probably be performing better if I would include them.

First, some general comments.
In its current form, your deck has only a few ramp cards. This is a bit of an issue if you want to have enough resources available (from early-game onwards) for casting spells. Red has few options for ramp, of which you've already included some. Other interesting cards could be stuff like Battle Hymn, Seething Song and especially Skirk Prospector. More expensive ramp options include cards like Dockside Extortionist, Jeska's Will and Mana Echoes.
Aside from red ramping options, there are also many artifacts resources for this. Good options include Arcane Signet, Fire Diamond, Gauntlet of Power, Mind Stone, Nyx Lotus and Sol Ring. There are also more expensive options if you really want to go to town: Chrome Mox, Jeweled Lotus and Mox Opal.
Currently your deck hardly contains card-advantage options (draw, tutoring, filtering, etc.). Of course, red has some options for this. Cathartic Reunion, Faithless Looting, Gamble, Thrill of Possibility, Tormenting Voice and Valakut Awakening Flip. Artifacts can help you on this front as well. Endless Atlas and Mind's Eye come to mind, as well as the more expensive stuff like Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top.
Now, with regard to Krenko himself.
He's an exceptionally powerful commander that your opponents are going to try and get rid off for sure. He needs some protection. Lightning Greaves/Swiftfoot Boots are therefore highly recommended. Stuff that gives him protection/indestructible also works. Next, I would expect that if you could, you would use his ability more than once per turn, should you be able to. There are many artifacts out there that allow you to untap Krenko, so that you can use him again during the same turn. Options include but are not limited to Puppet Strings, Staff of Domination, Sword of the Paruns, Thornbite Staff, Thousand-Year Elixir, Umbral Mantle.
Hope this helped.

Ok based on your comment about the combo, I'm basing these recommendations on a:
Tuned tier - Power level 5 (6 usually has a combo) - Win before Turn 14 - "Upgraded Precon". Visual Guide to Power Levels in EDH.
-- Land Base -- Prioritize untapped, Mana colors, Target 33: +Shivan Reef -Island +Yavimaya Coast -Forest +City of Brass -Aether Hub +Mana Confluence -Mountain Valley +Riverglide Pathway Flip -Simic Growth Chamber +Rootbound Crag -Mountain +Hinterland Harbor -Forest +Sulfur Falls -Mountain +Rejuvenating Springs -Path of Ancestry +Training Center -Rogue's Passage +Spire Garden -Ancient Ziggurat +Boseiju, Who Endures -Island
--Ramp-- Creature preferred +Birds of Paradise -Thought Vessel +Three Visits -Heraldic Banner +The Great Henge -Gilded Lotus (Also important for draw) +Farseek -Harvest Season
--Morph-- +Kadena's Silencer -Stuffy Doll +Icefeather Aven -Keep Safe (Morph flavor) +Echo Tracer -Omnath, Locus of Mana (Morph flavor) +Mistfire Weaver -Forsaken Monument (Morph flavor) +Jeering Instigator -Shaleskin Plower (Morph flavor less salt)
--Draw-- +Fathom Seer -Zendikar Resurgent +Temur Ascendancy -Tomb of the Spirit Dragon +Tishana, Voice of Thunder -Ashcloud Phoenix +Guardian Project -Tidespout Tyrant +Toski, Bearer of Secrets -Fabricate +Garruk's Uprising -Creeping Renaissance
--Offense other than Animar-- +Garruk's Horde -Forest +Artisan of Kozilek -Island +Bane of Bala Ged -Trophy Mage (Pulls 1 unneeded artifact!) +Shrieking Drake -Temur Sabertooth (Non-Infinite Ancestral Statue) +Decimator of the Provinces -Temur War Shaman
--Control-- +Beast Within -Fog
I've left out some salty card for this power level: Cyclonic Rift Ancestral Statue Craterhoof Behemoth Rhystic Study Mystic Remora Dockside Extortionist
Special mention (would need to playtest): Secret Plans (Draw) Solemn Simulacrum (Ramp & Draw) Mulldrifter (Draw) Trail of Mystery (Ramp) Rhythm of the Wild (Don't think you'll see heavy counterspell in power 5)
Could go more less if needed Theres other stuff I didn't suggest because of the morph theme, like Cloud of Faeries, Hullbreaker Horror, Fierce Empath etc.
Hopefully you find some useful ideas here.

Great points XinZhao, I agree that the board state required to set up Bloodthirster is too complex to be consistent, I’d rather run something else.
Thanks for the suggestion Last_Laugh, I hadn’t seen Spirit Mantle before. I wouldn’t run it in this build, but it could be really handy in a more aggro-heavy deck.
I’m experimenting with the current decklist. As compared to the old list, I’m running more creature-based ramp (Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer, Dockside Extortionist, Professional Face-Breaker, Ancient Copper Dragon), more anti-storm stax (Chancellor of the Annex, Liesa, Shroud of Dusk), and every Rule of Law effect (making it easier to stick the RoL + Possibility Storm combo). I swapped Council's Judgment for Angel of the Ruins, and dropped Damn and Teferi's Protection for a couple extra lands to ensure consistent mana access. I’m going to test this version for a while and see how it goes.
Tur on Hidden Power - Mono-Color - …
3 months ago
Yeah, there are many ways to get big mana.
Here is a story: I was playing a Bruvac the Grandiloquent edh, and I had Bribery in hand. Now, I know that one of my opponents is playing Blightsteel Colossus and another is playing Dockside Extortionist.
So, I played Bribery and got Dockside Extortionist on turn five. Phantasmal Image it. Clever Impersonator it. Make approximately twenty treasure. Play Bruvac the Grandiloquent, Maddening Cacophony, and Relic of Progenitus to mill out most of my opponents library's. Pact of Negation was a backup in case there was removal.
So, Dockside Extortionist allowed a mono-blue mill deck to win on turn five.
