Throne of the God-Pharaoh

Legendary Artifact

At the beginning of your end step, each opponent loses life equal to the number of tapped creatures you control.

Sorry, didn't see the "what to replace" request. Throne of the God-Pharaoh seems underwhelming here. Silverclad Ferocidons is amazing but its also the highest cmc card you have and i bet creature control isn't the problem you'll be having on turn 6-7. Also, you'll be hitting the Ferocidon for 3 points each time because your commanders ability affects you and its not optional.

If you find the deck needs more defense i'd look at Stormtide Leviathan and I LOVE Meishin, the Mind Cage in my pinger deck. Late game and suddenly nobody can cause damage but you.

Grapeshot might not be as useful as some other spells because it needs to target.

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

you need to find more cards that have some kind of synergy with what your commander does/is trying to do.

I would try to focus more on cards that work with either the tap effects or untap effects your creatures have. A card like Throne of the God-Pharaoh would do wonders in this deck, since your goal at the end of your turn is to have every single creature on your side of the field tapped.

I would also SERIOUSLY consider adding more Vehicles. the crew mechanic is supposed to be a hindrance but with your commander, it becomes a huge strength. I don't think you are taking advantage of that enough here. Think about adding cards like Consulate Dreadnought Skysovereign, Consul Flagship Dermotaxi and Untethered Express, as well as any others you like, would be amazing in a deck like this since at the end of your turn they would also count as triggers for Throne of the God-Pharaoh

Lastly, I would think about Meekstone, its a great way to help lock down the board for you if you pair it with Drumbellower

You aren't bad at this. You took a lackluster commander and made an original concept and a deck that flows!

Preacher weak body but it's a strong blue effect in white that fits the decks theme.

Tangle Wire it's always fun making stax effects one sided.

Throne of the God-Pharaoh value.

Cryptic Gateway might work in this list.

False Floor is this the home it was looking for!?

Dust Bowl anytime I see a deck with a lot of basics I recommend this. So good in the late game.

I would replace Campaign of Vengeance with Throne of the God-Pharaoh very similar effect but only costs two mana. Also definitely cut excuisite blood. It barely synergizes with your deck at all because it's not a lifegain deck. I'm a big fan of Patriarch's Bidding

     Very cool build, +1 for the build but also the title! xD

     Love a lot of your card choices like Throne of the God-Pharaoh and Fell the Mighty. Thoughts on Infiltration Lens, Raven Guild Master & Scalpelexis? Think they'd be right at home here!

chigorin Really appreciate the feedback and interest! It would be my pleasure to answer your questions.

First, regarding the card Grand Crescendo, it has definitely caught my eye. For now I am still testing the most recent build of the deck to see if I feel the need for more board-wipe protection. I will say that as a general rule, for this deck I like creatures such as Dauntless Escort and Selfless Spirit more than sorceries/instants because they combo with Earthcraft type effects and Gaea's Cradle + Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun. They can also be recycled with Sun Titan in a really powerful loop, and they can be searched with tutors. It is true that Grand Crescendo offers unprecedented flexibility in that you can use it as protection or as a token maker or both. I would still say that it is inferior to Heroic Intervention and to Teferi's Protection. Making more tokens in Emmara can really quickly feel "win more" because Emmara is such a reliable token maker. As soon as I test stuff out and make a decision I will write an update specifically for New Capenna stuff, so keep an eye out for that!

The deck is actually optimized for a 4-player game. It is true that Esper Sentinel and Smothering Tithe offer draw and mana, respectively, and at various points I did include them. However, they give you those things...and nothing else. They have almost no real synergy with your gameplan. Additionally, they are both occupying extremely busy mana slots. Turn 1 should always ideally be any of the "Turn One Tappers" and the 4 mana slot is almost always ideally taken by a token doubler or to continue setting up your combo. Mana/ramp is also the one thing that I do not feel the deck needs more of at all.

As for board wipes in general, my experience has been this: if no one plays a board wipe, I win 100% of the time unless I had an absolutely terrible hand/draws. You are the go wide deck. Either someone blows up the board or you win. So, focus on running protection and let others worry about board wipes.

Throne of the God-Pharaoh draws attention to you in a bad way. You don't want to give opponent's a reason to blow you up early. Emmara is a slow, steady token deck. You are always growing turn after turn. Your goal is to reach that critical point where you can 1-KO everyone before they realize you are a threat.

Glare of Subdual is a trap. It discourages you from tapping your creatures during your turn, and in this deck, if you are doing the things that will make you win, you are normally ending your turn with a tapped out board. Knight-Captain of Eos is your best defense against attacks, and it is always better to remove artifacts rather than just tap them.

Finally, Sylvan Library has the unfortunate trait of costing 2 mana. You ALWAYS cast Emmara turn 2. And because Sylvan Library is best played as early as possible, and from turn 3 forwards, it really doesn't feel like there is ever a good time to play it. I decided to cut it because now we have access to more cards with draw like Welcoming Vampire and the absolute perfection that is Bennie Bracks, Zoologist.

Please feel free to ask as many other questions as you want, or let me know if you would like more detail regarding any of my explanations! I love this deck, and for some weird reason I am just obsessed with making it perfect hahaha, so I will definitely be maintaining it for years to come!

Hey! Amazing list and thanks for keeping it updated. Curious about your thoughts on the new Streets of New Capenna Commander Card, Grand Crescendo?

In addition, is this list optimized for 1v1? Just curious why you're not running Esper Sentinel, Smothering Tithe or Boardwipes (Hour of Reckoning etc)?

I'm probably late to these decisions but why were cards below cut? Throne of the God-Pharaoh Glare of Subdual Sylvan Library

Thanks for keeping this list maintained!
