Let me start with this is part of my Commander Roulette. The roulette is a format based on the Highlander Roulette variant. In which you build 6 decks with the singleton rule across all 6 decks. So if one deck has a Sol Ring, none of the other 5 decks may contain a Sol Ring. "Restriction breeds Creativity"
Goblin Welder - The single most powerful creature in the deck. Being able to 'Weld' stax effects on and off the battlefield at instant speed. And that is only the beginning of it's power. Because you can remove opponents stuff too if they have something weaker in their graveyard.Magus of the Moon - Moon effect in a Mono-Red deck. You mean all my nonbasic lands are Mountains? Darn! You're a 3 color deck? That hurts.Squee, Goblin Nabob - Works really well with our general. Can also be a beasty chump blocker in a pinch.Filigree Familiar - New addition from Kaladesh. It's a mini Solemn Simulacrum. It works pretty good with Smokestacks and is a decent blocker.Metalworker - Creates an insane amount of mana in this deck if you can untap with it.Lodestone Golem - Tax effect on legs. It's not the fastest clock, but 5 Damage a turn can eventually end a game. You're really playing this as another tax effect.Kuldotha Forgemaster - Tutoring and playing any artifact in our deck is pretty powerful. And sacrificing three artifacts isn't that hard for us. This is one of the only ways to reliably cheat a Blightsteel into play. Combustible Gearhulk - Perfect card for Daretti. Do you want to take damage in the face, while letting us fill our graveyard for some welding? No? Then you let us draw three cards? Have to pick one.Duplicant - Weldable removal with legs. It exiles too.Thopter Assembly - This allows us to get around a Smokestack, provides chump blocking, and is a decent clock.Myr Battlesphere - This is our mac daddy of beaters. It's no Blightsteel, but this is our second fastest clock while making chump blocker.Sandstone Oracle - Card advantage in Red is hard to come by. Being able to cheat it into play is pretty good. Can usually draw you 2 or 3 cards. Blightsteel Colossus - After your opponents beg and plead for the game to end, you can give them a merciful death.
Lion's Eye Diamond - One of the easiest and fastest Turn 1 Daretti enablers. I'm ok with discarding my hand because most people will have a really difficult time dealing with a Turn 1 Daretti. Not to mention I'll get 2-3 draws each turn as I search for some ramp or stax effect. Lotus Petal - A cheap and easy way to cheat on mana. This card will usually end up with a turn 2 Daretti almost every time. Plus it's really good with a Daretti Emblem. Mox Diamond - Trading a land for an artifact mana source is good for us when we plan on blowing up all the lands anyways. Mox Opal - 3 artifacts is trivial most times in this deck. So this is almost always a Mox Ruby.
