legendofa on Squee's Toy + Damage Doubler

As a minor point, let's replace Squee's Toy with Samite Healer, since the Toy only prevents damage to creatures.
Samite Healer would prevent the initial 1 damage. There's now no damage for Gratuitous Violence to double, so you wouldn't take any damage from Fireslinger.

If I have a Gratuitous Violence, or any other damage doubler and I prevent Fireslinger's 1 pt of dmg to myself with Squee's Toy, would it never go on to deal the additional point of damage?

You could add the following to make this deck a bit faster, and they're all quite cheap:
Sol Talisman Rakdos Signet Fire Diamond Charcoal Diamond Prismatic Lens Worn Powerstone
cards to remove: Blackblade Reforged, The Eldest Reborn, Smoldering Egg, Volcanic Dragon, Ring of Xathrid, Rune of Mortality
aslo i'd swap Victim of Night for Grim Bounty
i think you want to consider Swiftfoot Boots replacing Ring of Valkas
you should also really consider taking out the dragons for: Blood Cultist Dagger Caster Blood Cultist Prodigal Pyromancer Morbid Opportunist Deathbringer Thoctar Fireslinger Cunning Sparkmage
when those get deathtouch, you can ice any creature that poses a threat to zagras
I would optimize the buffs you give zagras to +3 power so you can kill people in 3 attacks Grafted Wargear Heirloom Blade
double strike is actually way better since the deathtouch will kill the creature on first strike damage: Fireshrieker Lizard Blades Embercleave Assault Strobe Berserkers' Onslaught Blood Mist

Court Street Denizen only triggers on white creatures, so it wouldn't work for an artifact. Another combo starter for the combo is Mirran Spy, and with another combo piece (Battered Golem, Mirran Spy itself, etc.) it gives infinite untaps, which works well with Prodigal Sorcerer, Rootwater Hunter, Razorfin Hunter, and, if you are ahead on life, Spear Spewer and Fireslinger (Or with any other pinger)
Also Nettle Drone is probably the best creature in the Retraction Helix combo deck, since it is the payoff and a combo starter.

Hey, you're welcome.
There's 12 rogues here for the party, but only 5 clerics, 4 Warriors and 1 Wizard. These ratios of party members will make it difficult to have much mana cost reduction for Zagras especially Wizards. My advice is make these numbers more even to give you more chances to have different party members on the battlefield at once. Changeling Outcast is a budget one drop party member who can be any creature type you choose for party and it's unblockable which has good interaction with several tribal combat damage effects.
Budget Wizards to consider adding:
- Blood Cultist, Fireslinger: more pingers with deathtouch.
- Pain Seer, Magus of the Wheel, Grim Haruspex: draw.
There's some party members who could be upgraded to better budget creatures especially the Warriors:
- Goblin Chainwhirler > Carnage Gladiator
- Azra Oddsmaker > Brawl-Bash Ogre
- Mindblade Render > Rakdos Roustabout
- Oona's Blackguard > Blood Burglar
Blood Beckoning could be upgraded to Nullpriest of Oblivion who is a two drop Cleric or if you cast with kicker you can reanimate any creature in your graveyard. Beckoning doesn't reanimate it recurs the creature/creatures to your hand which is a big difference. Searing Barrage could be upgraded to any Wizard party member because this removal spell is not needed as it's the least good and costs the most mana for what it does.
Some cards to consider cutting:
- Pyroclastic Hellion
- Lash of Thorns
- Inordinate Rage
- Barge In
- Avatar of Fury
- Nearheath Stalker
- Bloodsworn Steward
- Blazing Specter
- Gnat Alley Creeper
- Duskmantle Operative
- Crashing Drawbridge
- Ashenmoor Liege
Pump spells that only pump one creature one time such as Infuriate are subpar in Commander especially when you can only cast them once. If the spell pumped all creatures you control, protected the creature from removal or it made the creature have huge power with evasion then that's different, but the pump spells here don't do that. More draw is more impactful than pump.

This Commander looks dope! Personally, my favorite part about him is his ability that makes all your other creatures have Deathtouch. My take-away is now, your opponents never get to have creatures or yours get through their defenses unblocked! I looked in to some cards that fit the new 'party' mechanic in Zendikar to help your Commander come out.

Looking at some party cards, the problem I'm coming across is lack of synergy but I'll recommend some anyway. You really want your commander out early with as many ETBs as you have and being how aggressive he is.
Grenzo, Dungeon Warden: Rogue. Gives you a decent body with repeatable card advantage.
Grenzo, Havoc Raiser: Rogue. Either card advantage or point the biggest (or weakest utility) creature at another player.
Rankle, Master of Pranks: Another rogue. Less synergistic but he has three modes and haste. Plus, you can choose as many modes as you like.
Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion: Warrior. Red ramp and card fixing.
Priest of Forgotten Gods: Cleric. Potential card advantage and removal plus ramp.
Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs: Warrior. Provides plenty of deathtouch chump blockers with your commander.
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed: Cleric. Allows all of your creatures to die once and come back. Plus, kills any human that gets through.
Gonti, Lord of Luxury: Rouge. Neat. Not the greatest in a vacuum but replaces himself, normally with something good.
Anarchist: Wizard. If you get more spells then maybe.
Cinder Seer: Wizard. Not the best pinger but a pinger nonetheless.
Coffin Queen: Wizard. Playable effect.
Dismissive Pyromancer: Wizard. Decent rummage affect and can take one guy out.
Embermage Goblin: Wizard. Not the best pinger but possibly playable. Hits any target.
Fervent Paincaster: Wizard. Hits creatures.
Fireslinger: Wizard. Best pinger so far at 2 cmc. Hits any target.
Nezumi Graverobber: Rogue/Wizard. Starts off as a graveyard hating rogue and turns into a grave stealing wizard.
Going through cards and the party subtheme seems a bit sad. Some of the above are decent but there isn't a ton to go on in my opinion.
On the first strke though, there are a million cheap red spells that grant first strike temporarily as an instant or as an enchantment. I would recommend running 1 or 2 of the instants to keep opponents on their toes when they think about blocking you.
As for creatures,
Soul of Shandalar: Mana wise, not the best. But can ping and has built in first strike.
Sparring Collar: Cheap first strike and can be attached instant speed to either dissuade blocks/attacks or murder something.
Sword of Vengeance: I don't think its as good as above due to not being able to move at instant speed, but it grants vigilance as well. It is nice to keep a first strike flying blocker up after it attacks.
Akki Coalflinger: Way to help out the team.
Legion Loyalist: Way to help out the team. (My favorite of the team helping bunch).
Bloodmark Mentor: Way to help out half of the team.
Akroma's Memorial. Expensive but a classic.
I think a couple or few first strike options would work out. As for cards that I think you could do better than,
Bloodgift Demon: Good card but his effect is a bit expensive for card advantage. Maybe try Theater of Horrors. Its essentially the same as phyrexian arena but for rakdos.
Endbringer: Potentially a great card but I wouldn't count on using his other effects with as little colorless mana sources that you have.
Master of Cruelties: Can be good but typically best if saved for kalia combos. He shuts down attacking with everyone else which limits you to dealing with one opponent at a time.
Rakdos Firewheeler: Not bad but repeatable effects may be better.

Thanks a third time. I didn't think of the Fireslinger result, but that's useful to know.
