If you're playing Cloudstone Curio in this deck with these commanders and you aren't running Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip and the 0 mana Kobolds then you're missing out on a much more practical combo win than the graveyard shenanigans with Blood Artist style effects.

With Curio in play, cast Birgi, cast Rog, cast any 1cmc red creature or a 0 mana Kobold, and then continuously bounce Rog and the other creature to generate infinite red mana off Birgi triggers. Use a final Rog cast to bounce the Birgi, cast Birgi as an artifact now. Cast any non artifact creature (you can discard cards in hand to the Horn to find a creature if needed, or if using Dockside Extortionist plus Rog you'll be able to cast Tymna) and bounce the Rog. Discard the Rog to the Horn to exile the top 2 of the library, Rog returns to the command zone. Recast Rog, bounce the extra creature, recast the extra creature and bounce the Rog, discard the Rog to exile 2 more. Rinse repeat until you draw and play the whole library for a win.

This line of play in Rog/Tymna decks is much more reliable than graveyard lines of play due to the pletora of yard hate in the format and the combo mana loop itself mostly relies on creature casts that are far less likely to be poached by blue interaction. Ranger-Captain of Eos is both a nice tutor for a Kobold and a protection piece for when you combo off and can supplement the Abolisher and Silence as protective elements.

This compliments the Impact Tremors + Cloudstone Curio lines of play as well as any 2 Kobolds also generate a win, again avoiding yard hate and most permission elements. Both of these lines of play do rely on Curio though so at least one additional non Curio related game winning line of play should be included as a back up, and for this Opposition Agent + Maralen of the Mornsong is quite ideal in terms of card slot efficiency.

I do not recommend the Blood Artist lines in this deck as they are equally card slot inefficient as the Birgi set up but far more vulnerable and significantly less useful outside of the combo, though the Kobolds are really only nice with a Skullclamp on the board. Koll, the Forgemaster + Skullclamp +any Kobold (including the commander) is a nifty little draw engine though providing 2 cards for every invested to keep you gassed up.

I'm still testing about 12-15 card slots in my build at the moment (my meta includes a lot of disruptive opposing decks keen on exiling cards so I've got one additional combo win line with the Mystic Forge + Sensei's Divining Top combo in there as well), but after a number of games the Cloudstone Curio set ups centered around Birgi and the Kobolds have proven to be ideal.

Also Recruiter of the Guard Ranger of Eos and Ranger-Captain of Eos as your deck has plenty of targets for them!

Ranger of Eos Ranger-Captain of Eos and Recruiter of the Guard would be good as well! Tutors for your Ugin's Conjurant and allows you to play it on curve with your commander! Also gets as combo pieces/ silver bullet spirits! (like Kami of False Hope in a pinch, Walking Ballista for the combo finish)

Growth Spiral seems really out of place; with mana dorks, I don't think you need extra ramp, especially in a splashed color.

I'd also switch up the manabase - maybe some pathway lands, or fetches, just for more duals.

You could consider off-tribe value creatures like Ranger-Captain of Eos . Also, Adaptive Automaton .

I would personally drop Coat of Arms for something like Triumph of the Hordes or Overrun , etc.

This is a cool idea. Thoughts on these? Cloudstone Curio , Thermopod , Priest of Urabrask , Ranger-Captain of Eos , Shield Sphere , Wyleth, Soul of Steel , Ronin Warclub , Mentor of the Meek , Akiri, Fearless Voyager , Tibalt's Trickery , Sunforger , Final Fortune , Angel's Grace , Tithe (finds Mistveil, and sunforger can play it), Burst of Energy . If you include those last 5 cards, you can set up an infinite turn combo starting with only a Sunforger.

RobotWizard1248: It's definitely on the maybe list but I'm running Ranger-Captain of Eos more for the Silence effect then for the tutor. The deck often just wants more creatures to cast, so you can draw more cards, than a specific creature.
Recruiter of the Guard will find Eternal Witness which with Chulane, Teller of Tales in play and Time Warp is one the the wincons, but the deck is already very consistent and runs a bunch of tutors. My play group is at a Mid-High level and this deck is already a bit higher then most of the other players enjoy.
If I was looking to up the power level it is something I would include though I might cut a different card as I have been very happy with the Ranger-Captain.
