DreadKhan on Generously Hellbent

You might look at Rite of the Raging Storm and Exquisite Blood, maybe Berserkers' Onslaught, even a Mask of Griselbrand as a backup to your Skullcap idea, paying 3 to draw 5 always feels great in my Pavel build, and the Evasion/Lifelink are often relevant. I run a ton of wipes and removal, perhaps the best of which is Make an Example, which is just backbreaking to any deck reliant on having a specific creature on the board, and it hits each opponent in such a way that it's almost impossible to protect against short of countering it. As my deck hates being interacted with itself (it's full of chonky spells/effects just begging to get countered) I run Boiling Seas and Omen of Fire, alongside a Citadel of Pain, Pavel can soak up a lot of spare mana anyways. Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast might be more reasonable than adding Boil, but the deck loves hosing Islands for some reason. Since I run lots of board wipes, I tossed in Tyrite Sanctum and Daring Fiendbonder to give stuff Indestructible. I mostly run utility creatures like Agitator Ant or token generators like Ophiomancer and Ogre Slumlord, I'm presently at 16 creatures in the 99, so it doesn't usually matter if I'm wiping the board 3 or 4 times in a game. It's not unusual to win off of a timely Thieves' Auction, it's funny when you have a deck full of questionable permanents, some people will just scoop to it as well, it's a salty card to some. I mean if you're already running Omen of Fire, why not throw in Thieves' Auction?

Hope some of these ideas can synergize with your build, Pavel is a great under-utilized Commander, I built him more janky, but the deck is truly a blast to play.

Crow-Umbra on Isshin [Medium Budget]

Nice deck! Lol. My only suggestions are to maybe consider Vanishing Verse over Fracture, and Tibalt's Trickery over Red Elemental Blast/Pyroblast as potential upgrades..

I like Exile removal a bit more for my meta, since I have more Grave Yard strats I play against, but it's ultimately a personal choice. Vanishing Verse still hits plenty of mono-color value engines like Rhystic Study and Sylvan Library. Tibalt's Trickery can interact with more spells on the stack, but lacks the Blue removal that Elemental Blast/Pyroblast do. I had Pyroblast in one of the earliest versions of my Isshin deck, but removed it because it felt too narrow for my meta. Definitely a good choice though if you encounter Blue pretty frequently.

Balaam__ you mentioned two things:

  1. An Elemental rampage approach

  2. And a lack of counter magic

If you choose to use Birds of Paradise then you open up access to:

And albeit this only aims at , still some good hard countering.

For elementals, boy howdy. Rather than waste your time with recommendations you won't use, I noticed you like a noticeable, definitive swing.

So I say Nova Chaser, just as a wink wink nudge nudge.

Best of luck with any variation you aim to use, but Temur () solves your issues with evasion and countering.

Balaam__ in response to your subject of Avoid Fate:

And if you use Birds of Paradise as your dork, which would be optimal, you could use the following:

Imo, I'd use Guttural but I'd thought to mention a few options!

TapatioDorito on Pauper Prowess

Why bother with Red Elemental Blast in Mainboard? It's a dead draw if you're not up against blue, and it's not like Pyroblast where you can have it target something and be a "free" spell to cast. Why Heap Gate and Ornithopter at all? Lots of odd choices.

Your Prowess theme is lacking too, very few threats to take advantage of the spells, with Spellgorger Weird and the tokens of Goblin Wizardry being really slow. I understand it's pulled from your collection, but there's not enough of the "prowess" part to it right now.

RinceRaven on krenko

Alright alright so I got asked to give a bunch of suggestions so here we go. Hoo boy. Gonna try to keep most suggestions low on budget but will include the best slightly expensive cards. Should also mention I got a lot of things I know from this primer, cheers. https://deckstats.net/decks/82803/752805-competitive-krenko/en

First the draw pieces you missed: Rundvelt Hordemaster, Dark-Dweller Oracle, Skullclamp, Subira, Tulzidi Caravanner, Reforge the Soul, Conspicuous Snoop, You Find Some Prisoners. The only actual good ones you got in this draft are Idol of Oblivion and Wheel of Misfortune imo, though most are servicable.

Tutors: these beauties can find your best wincons or draw pieces or whatever else you might need most of the time. Goblin Engineer, Goblin Matron, Goblin Recruiter. And are surprisingly affordable.

Next up ramp: Mana doublers are too slow for a deck as fast as Krenko, and you don't have the card draw to support such cards in mono-red. Not really. Also with the 4 mana commander having 2 mana ramp becomes much, much more valued. Cheering Fanatic, Liquimetal Torque, Generator Servant, Wily Goblin, Infernal Plunge, Fire Diamond (Yes I know, I think it's fine here).

Haste: Giving Krenko (and his tokens) haste literally puts you a turn ahead over not having it. Crashing Drawbridge, Ashling's Prerogative (Even gives tokens haste too), Generator Servant (multipurpose? Whoa), Goblin Chieftain, Goblin Motivator, Lightning Greaves, Mass Hysteria, Thousand-Year Elixir (tad pricey but repeatable Krenko seems good) Bloodlust Inciter.

Wincons: gotta end the game somehow. Combo's are good: Breath of Fury, Staff of Domination, Thornbite Staff, Umbral Mantle are the best combo lines for Krenko afaik. If not/next to combo, we have good old damage: Coat of Arms, Eldrazi Monument, Impact Tremors, Obelisk of Urd, Skirk Fire Marshal, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Shared Animosity, Devilish Valet, Quest for the Goblin Lord, Throne of the God-Pharaoh.

If we let our opponents do whatever they want we'll have trouble winning, even with our speed. Luckily red has quite some options. Don't forget Liquimetal Torque can turn things into artifacts so we can shoot them easier. Abrade, Chaos Warp, Gempalm Incinerator (great removal spell, terrible creature), Goblin Assassin (wipes the floor with creature decks), Goblin Bombardment, Goblin Cratermaker, Goblin Sharpshooter, Goblin Trashmaster, Goblin Welder (hits opponents too), Mogg Salvage, Pashalik Mons, Skirk Fire Marshal (your board survives this with Coat of Arms or Eldrazi Monument), Furystoke Giant, Shattering Spree, better than Vandalblast, Wild Magic Surge.

Best Utility Lands: Great Furnace, Buried Ruin, Path of Ancestry, Castle Embereth.

I'm tired and my brain is dying so here's a dump of things I forgot or for didn't have a place to mentioned yet :)

Heirloom Blade, Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Blood Moon, Brash Taunter, Impulsive Pilferer, Jeska's Will, Goblin Chirurgeon, Goblin Sledder, Mogg Raider, Pyroblast, Red Elemental Blast, Tibalt's Trickery, Mogg War Marshal, Legion Loyalist, Legion Warboss, Brash Taunter, Fable of the Mirror-Breaker  Flip, Hobgoblin Bandit Lord, Muxus, Goblin Grandee (idk at what math this is good I'm sure someone did it already somewhere on the internet), Siege-Gang Commander, Zo-Zu the Punisher, Goblin Ringleader, Goblin Piledriver, Arms Dealer, Grotag Night-Runner, Goblin King (get 5th or 6th edition art btw).

Good luck on figuring things out. I'm off to bed

An interesting concept for sure; I feel like I wouldn't be doing justice if I didn't mention that Painter's Servant and the corresponding "elemental" and "blast" cards:

Love that this uses WUBRG because Magus of the Candelabra is a thing. I have a Post deck that I use almost every week with my group. Its called : Gaia-post

If you hate blue, have you considered Tibalt's Trickery, Red Elemental Blast, or Pyroblast?
