I feel like you'd be better off with less pingers (tap for damage creatures) and more punishing triggered effects/etb effects on creatures.

Akoum Hellkite , Aria of Flame , Ash Zealot , Bomb Squad , Flameblade Angel (each time your dealt damage by any source with your commander on the ground, it deals 3 damage to that sources commander), Goblin Sharpshooter , Hellrider (same deal as Flameblade but attacking), Invader Parasite , Karplusan Minotaur , Leyline of Lightning , Mindsparker , Purphoros, God of the Forge , Repercussion (works even better since you control the source of damage), Satyr Firedancer (try it with damage based field wipes and you might just clear the table), Stalking Vengeance , Tephraderm , Mondronen Shaman  Flip, Tunnel Ignus , Warstorm Surge

so seems like a fun deck but I think you should add more rng coin flipping I like the demon imp and devil subtheme but krark's other thumb actually doesn't seem to have a trigger in the deck but here are some cards that flip coins in those colors Aleatory Boompile Chance Encounter Chaotic Goo Chaotic Strike Creepy Doll Crooked Scales Desperate Gambit Fiery Gambit Fighting Chance Game of Chaos Goblin Archaeologist Goblin Bomb Goblin Kaboomist Karplusan Minotaur Mana Clash Planar Chaos Puppet's Verdict Risky Move those are the ones i found and i think you should run at least some of them

NoOneOfConsequence You are right, Karplusan Minotaur may not seem a great card, but it's the only one, other than my commanders and Chance Encounter , that cares about me winning coin flips, so it adds more value to all the other coin flipping cards in this deck. It makes me flip more coins thanks to the cumulative upkeep and the drawback of losing the flips is minimum. Sometimes there is no drawback, because I choose the opponent when I lose a flip, so I can play this card in a more political way. And when I win, I can always decide to direct the damages to the minotaur itself and destroy it If I'm going to risk too much with it in play.

That said, I'm surely missing some worthwhile coin flipping cards but I think the best ones are already in the "maybeboard" list, like Planar Chaos or Game of Chaos . I'm still struggling to find a room for them, but I think they are way better than Goblin Artisans . Maybe I can replace the minotaur with one of this two...

Gelectrode95 I mean, you're playing Karplusan Minotaur , but, fair enough. I just feel like you might be missing some worthwhile coin-flipping cards in this deck.

Frenetic Sliver is another creature that will let you flip an arbitrarily large amount of coins.

Other creatures with decent coin-flip abilities are Goblin Archaeologist , Karplusan Minotaur and Mogg Assassin . You could also include Deadeye Quartermaster and Godo, Bandit Warlord if you're running equipment like Lightning Greaves / Swiftfoot Boots / Whispersilk Cloak for Okaun.

The Locust God and Psychosis Crawler are also good if you plan on comboing with Zndrsplt.

If you're playgroup lets you throw in a few silver boarder cards then check out A sock of quarters. I win a surprising number of games with it. Especially the Mana Screw and Karplusan Minotaur combo. They haven't put it together that they can kill the creature and I don't plan on pointing it out.
