Woah there, haha, looks like you're looking for an entirely different list!

If I cut Deadly Dispute and Mortician Beetle, then I may as well cut Village Rites, at which point, I'll be playing mono-red with some zero-drops that are only useful for Rites of Initiation; I may as well be playing burn and cut the kobold theme entirely.

Speaking of Rites, I've actually tried it out in an earlier version, and from what I've gathered (from my "Playtest" experience, to be sure), it seems to be a dead card a lot of the time, because it's all or nothing. If you use it in any situation other than for winning on the spot, then you just lose the game due to card disadvantage (remember, the turn after we cast Rites, all our Kobolds become useless). It get's worse if you add in cards like Faithless Looting, which, unlike Village Rites or Deadly Dispute, is also card disadvantage.

I'll also have you know that Springleaf Drum is what makes this deck; I love Springleaf Drum. Think of it as a zero-drop (it pays for itself after tapping a kobold), that gets your Gathan Raiders out on turn 2, filters for the mana you need at any time, and can be sacked to Deadly Dispute/Kuldotha Rebirth as soon as it isn't useful.

But hey, I always appreciate suggestions. Thanks for the upvote, and checking out my deck!

Please cut Gathan Raiders for a card like Rites of Initiation. Also cut Springleaf Drum. It is too set-uppy/durdle-y for a deck like this. Just please replace one of the two for Rites. It kills your opponent for 1 mana with a easy set up. Deadly Dispute gets outclassed in a deck like this to Faithless Looting; and with the abstance of Deadly Dispute also cut Mortician Beetle. For a idea like Kobolds, my advise would be to go aggro or go home.

The easiest way to make a deck more competitive is with more card draw, ramp (mana), and interaction (removal). Getting close to 10 for each of those categories is a good place to be. For this deck I'd suggest Vanishing Verse, Path to Exile, and Heliod's Intervention for removal; Arcane Signet, Talisman of Hierarchy, Millikin, Springleaf Drum, and Priest of Forgotten Gods for ramp; Mentor of the Meek, Idol of Oblivion, Erebos, Bleak-Hearted, Mangara, the Diplomat, and Esper Sentinel for draw.

Good luck with the deck! :3

He is used in multiple ways to get out a fastAd Nauseam, some examples are Paradise Mantle, Culling the Weak and Springleaf Drum in all of these it helps to get fast black pips in hopes for a t1-t3 Ad Nauseam

How about Springleaf Drum for turning Kinnan into a dork? And what about Leyline of Abundance? It's some nice redundancy and a mana outlet.

Nice budget deck! Besides from attacking with Kalamax in order to get him tapped, (because some times you will risk getting him killed) may I suggest these casual cards that also help ramp your mana: Saruli Caretaker , Jaspera Sentinel , Springleaf Drum and the not-so-great-at-mana-fixing, old Honor-Worn Shaku .

Moreover, the Crew mechanic is a free way to tap Kalamax and some great examples are: Smuggler's Copter , Aethersphere Harvester , Heart of Kiran , Cultivator's Caravan and maybe a Conqueror's Galleon  Flip for some late game options when you flip it over.

Looking to add Springleaf Drum and Paradise Mantle to my lathril deck. I have all the one drop mana dorks and pretty much all the other good ones at 2 and 3 cmc, just wandering if it's worth adding these so I can turn my other ramping but non tapping and static effect elfs into dorks. Not sure if this is a good idea, any feedback appreciated.

I like the deck! the only concern is the usage of gilder bairn, although I use that card in my atraxa deck, I find that when I do not have a way to tap it down without attacking i end up finding theres no way for me to attack without losing it (might just be the play groups im commonly around). Springleaf Drum , Survivors' Encampment , or affects that would tap it might be useful and since you have some token producers even if gilders not there you might be able to use these. (if i missed you having any of these affects from a first glance then completely ignore me).
