You basically use Feldon to copy Tuktuk in your graveyard, then you sacc the copy to create a 5/5 Goblin Golem, then you untap and repeat the process to create infinite golems.
Problem is, I don't know where to go from here lol. There's so many types of decks and color combos that can def take advantage of this and I don't know what to choose.
Just wanna know tho, is the combo worth anything or am I just talking out my own ass?

Awesome deck! If you want an artifact subtheme, Tuktuk the Explorer is really good for making an engine with Goblin Welder while just being a good card to sacrifice. Rakdos Riteknife is also a surprisingly good card. Gets rid of permenants and it's possible to get one off for like 10.

TypicalTimmy: That idea sounds great, at least I would have no problem playing against such a deck, if the cards are balanced properly. Looking at all the "relevant"minotaurs, discard and aggression are the most striking points. A madness- or wheel commander seems kinda boring, so why not make a legendary minotaur "explorer" who cares about discarding and has some kind of eternalyzing for all your minotaurs? You could flavour this for Zendikar by including a lore similar to that of Tuktuk the Explorer.

Some quick suggestions: Foundry Street Denizen is a good 1 drop, Mogg War Marshal is kind of a 3 for 1, Tuktuk the Explorer a very interesting card..., Goblin Assault (not my favorite card but you might be able to make it work), Mass Hysteria if you need haste. There's always room for a Lightning Bolt in EDH decks. Maybe as a finale like card Descent of the Dragons to kill off (some of) your creatures for some big boys.

Two creature-based token makers that strike me as well-suited for commander are Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs and Nacatl War-Pride . Kazuul can either deter your opponents from attacking or give you tokens to block with; any that survive can be sac fodder for Thromak once you're ready to power him out. That the tokens are 3/3 seems relevant as well. War-Pride can give you a very wide attack, and since the tokens aren't exiled until end of turn, they can be devoured second main phase for a giant hellion. While looking at it tonight, I realized that giving extra combat steps with Aggravated Assault should cause each token to make tokens themselves. Further investigation revealed that the tokens would require haste to attack on any additional combat, but that's already worked into the deck anyway. Could be something to try? Sadly, I haven't gotten many games in with my deck, and don't think I've ever gotten to play either card, but they sound awesome to me in theory.
I also really like creatures that replace themselves when they die. Mitotic Slime is particularly awesome at this, as each time it dies it splits (after all, I don't care so much about the decreased p/t, but the increased creature count. More bodies to feed the beast!). I also run Blisterpod (gives an eldrazi token which can sac for mana), Brindle Shoat (gets bigger body upon death), Thragtusk (mm, taste the value!), Strangleroot Geist (comes back so long as it hasn't got a counter), and Wurmcoil Engine (not exactly a budget suggestion, but gives two bodies upon death). If you should go with a goblin subtheme, Mogg War Marshal and Goblin Marshal are possibilities, as well as Tuktuk the Explorer .
