Lands (22)
3 x Highland Lake
13 x Mountain
1 x Spirebluff Canal
4 x Sulfur Falls
1 x Inventors' Fair

Creatures (14)
4 x Squee, the Immortal
4 x Wily Goblin
4 x Skirk Prospector
1 x Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain
1 x Siege-Gang Commander

Enchantments (2)
2 x Makeshift Munitions

Artifacts (18)
2 x Hazoret's Monument
4 x Paradox Engine
4 x Powerstone Shard
1 x Vanquisher's Banner
4 x Manalith
1 x Cultivator's Caravan
2 x Aetherflux Reservoir

Sorceries (4)
3 x Cathartic Reunion
1 x Fight with Fire


So this is where I'm at atm. The idea is to cast multiple times the same squee, getting value out of each cast, with a Goblin sub-theme that could eventually be an alternate win-con.
So how does it work?
Paradox engine and aetherflux reservoir are the main pieces, but you also need a sac outlet (prospectors and munitions) and some mana-rocks (or dorks) To untap with the engine. Joira and Banner are card drawing engines to dig through your deck and additional value.
I've played about 5 games with an earlier mono-red list and actually won 2 (though 1 game was a time-out from my opp... Lol) I did get the combo going on the other win and managed to pay 50 life for a big game-winning face shot.
So any ideas as to how to make the deck better?

Well....sorry
I like the idea but the addition of the other two sets REALLY set me behind in knowing what cards we have that can do whatever.
I really do like the idea and see where you're going, I think.

No worries mate!

I actually googled it and found some brews. It turns out I overlooked something, since squee is a legendary creature, you don't actually need a sac oulet, playing a second squee does the job because you have to sacrifice one of them, making the combo easier to pull off and freeing some card slots.

I would still welcome any input (however zany it may be).

Karn seems obvious here, as a dig engine (let them try not to give you Squee...) + alternate win con with all the artifacts you're running.

Also maybe CoW? Artifacts+graveyard shens seem like the better subthemes here. Scrounger to get some use out of your sacced goblins?

Oh wait, Saheeli Rai. Not sure how often you'd get to -7 her but if you're missing a mana stone or a second squee her -2 will get your ball rolling.

I've got 0 mox and only 1 Saheeli Rai.

I had karn in originally, but found him slow...
Golden lotus would work too, but I've also got 0 of those.
What card did you mean by CoW? You lost me there...

As for cutting the Skirmishers... Well, they can help you combo earlier, because you can sac squee for :r:, that way you only need 1 color rock.

Champion of Wits, but meh. The graveyard seemed like it was a thing because of cathartic reunion+the saccing but it's going into a sub-sub-theme...

And yeah, I kept the wrong goblin in my list :D

A couple Gilded Lotus woyl be great yeah. The right mix is probably something like 3 mox, 3 n
Manalith, 3 lotuses

So many cards...

Is out of the equation? You could make use of Board the Weatherlight. The hardest part of combo is actually assembling it.

Arena timer hates combo-decks.

Don't bother... Even when you can pull off the combo and go infinte, the clunky interface just uses up your time, no matter how fast you try to go...

Yeah, I did that once even without the lotus. Hazoret's monument works too as a loot effect of you have an extra card. With the lotus, it'd get you infinite mana too.

I think they've tweaked the timer to help combo decks, so I'll blow some wcs on lotuses when I get them, but I'm having too much fun with suicide black ATM.

Haha, love this idea! But I can't see paradox engine in the deck collection? (even with not collected checked)
