Kingdomsteel on Cheating, an Enlightened Commander

1 day ago

Omg, Narset. I used to have a Narset deck once. Removed the deck since I didn't want people to scoop in turn 2. I used the all-known Enter the Infinite and Omniscience combo, together with Beacon of Tomorrows.

Getting Narset out is you main purpose. You can make your ramp and color fixing as expensive (moneywise) as you want. Using every type of fetch you can helps. Using cards like Lion's Eye Diamond, Crystal Vein, Ancient Tomb, Pyretic Ritual, Simian Spirit Guide, Mana Vault, Mana Crypt or Lotus Petal Will get you there faster aswell, but it comes at a price. Literally.

Once you get narset out, you should be able to swing with her. So haste enablers like Mass Hysteria, Fervor, Generator Servant, Hall of the Bandit Lord or Ashling's Prerogative will definitly help.

The swings are important because you want extra turns, or extra attack phases. (=EXTRA COMMANDER DAMAGE) Expropriate, Temporal Mastery, Walk the Aeons, Time Warp, Time Stretch, Relentless Assault, Waves of Aggression, Seize the Day, Fury of the Horde,...

Essentially you want to cast Omniscience with narset and an Enter the Infinite after that. Swing for 21 commander damage total and win.

"Yeah that is IF you get to cast Omniscience". Just plant it there with Long-Term Plans or use an Enlightened Tutor before you swing with Narset. Find a Long-Term Plans with a Merchant Scroll or Mystical Tutor. Or maybe if you already have an Omniscience in hand, you can use or find a Brainstorm.

Besides the winning part, you have to be able to protect yourself. Defense Grid, Grand Abolisher, Misdirection, Wipe Away, Path to Exile, Force of Will or even an Armageddon or Boom/Bust will help you save your game.

Possibility's are endless. People will be targeting you. People will delete you from facebook. In the end, it's all about the fun. Narset takes away the fun. She's mostly there for competitive play IMO.

Go get 'em tiger. You got this.

Why Manic Vandal over Tuktuk Scrapper? I see it is 1 CMC less, but if you ran 4x Goblin Warchief like most legacy decks you could easily drop for 1-3 mana in most games, or just Vial it in. Plus, it won't go to the bottom of your deck with a ringleader drop pull.

Krenko, Mob Boss is a 1x staple for most decks now.

You don't see many decks in this format running Warren Instigator since it an RR and there are much rougher choices for a 2 drop for goblins I think like Mogg War Marshal, or obviously Goblin Piledriver.

I think Grenzo, Dungeon Warden is a bit slow, but Grenzo, Havoc Raiser as a 1x will start popping up in legacy decklists soon.

I agree with the above comment that Goblin Grenade is not good in legacy. I do however, think a 1x Legion Loyalist is worth it to give your other goblins great buffs as a 1 drop, especially piledrivers.

Boggart Mob can get pretty out of control and lets you retrigger matrons and ringleaders with a sac mechanism like Goblin Sledder or as most decks run, 1x Skirk Prospector. This isn't a popular choice, but worth considering. I run it in my RB goblin deck, but thats for casual. The champion effect of Lightning Crafter has the same retrigger potential.

Frogtosser Banneret could help you reduce costs of some of your goblins just like a Goblin Warchief, but you have neither. I think these are important for tribal goblins (most run warchief over frogtosser for the haste/monored).

1-2x Ancient Tomb seems to have dropped off most top8 decklists, but I like running 2 in mine. I run Food Chain Goblins and dirty kitty though, so my mechanic is different (and more vulnerable, but faster) than vial gobs.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker is nuts.

Consider Terminate or Gempalm Incinerator or Tragic Slip even for removal.

As for the sideboard, many people like running Krosan Grip if they splash with green. Also consider Thoughtseize. I also think that Blood Moon like stated above is great for MONORED in the sideboard if you choose to drop black. I think a 1x Goblin King is nice in the sideboard as well. Red Elemental Blast might help in the side as well.

First post so bear with me. I have an Ensnaring Bridge from stronghold that I don't use for my deck, its in quite good condition, and I am looking for cards to add to my ur-dragon deck or my talrand deck. I also have some cards lying around not in use like Ramos, Dragon Engine Birds of Paradise and a foil prerelease Settle the Wreckage that I did open, but all three are in good condition. The following cards are some of the things I am looking for. Scourge of the Throne Patriarch's Bidding Expropriate Gauntlet of Power High Tide Pact of Negation Rhystic Study Mystic Remora Ancient Tomb some combination of these (as well as others) that adds up to roughly the price of the card is what im interested in. I can trade it to my local store for around 30 dollars so I am looking to get closer to the 40 value if possible. other cards may work, just list your request. I am new to the site so I am unsure of what to check outside of my inbox or the comment thread. Thanks!!

n0bunga: Absolutely hilarious! :) But what would you cut for Sol Ring, Ancient Tomb and Mana Crypt? My playgroup has no restrictions.

Grenzo, Dungeon Warden kind of seems like a slow gamble for the format.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker+Lightning Crafter+Skirk Prospector=infinite damage combo.

I think that Legion Loyalist could be a good 1x for you (maybe replace a Skirk Prospector? Give those Goblin Piledrivers trample and stop chump blocks.

Grenzo, Havoc Raiser is worth considering imo. I think 1x of him will start popping up in legacy decks.

I like and run 2x Ancient Tomb, but people who play gobs have mixed feelings about them.

Boseiju, Who Shelters All?

Boggart Mob can get pretty out of control with Krenko, Mob Boss and the champion effect lets you retrigger a creature like Goblin Matron or Goblin Ringleader. Same with Lightning Crafter.

Sparksmith used to be popular for larger removal, but he hurts like hell. Might save you against reanimator decks and the like since you get more than one use out of him, unlike Gempalm Incinerator.Looks like fun!

I haven't had a game of Commander since August... :|

There's been little interested in Commander at my LGS during FNMs the past few months. I intended to make the switch last month, but I can't test new cards if I can't get a game going...

I'll update the deck by the end of this month. Games or no games.

-

Sram is going to stay in the 99, replacing the eventually-redundant Silverblade Paladin.

Flickering Ward is currently being replaced by Conqueror's Galleon. Galleon is the card I want to test the most.

Caged Sun was the last mana-doubler in the deck. I no longer wanted the lone doubling effect in the deck anymore. Land-based ramp, especially Sword of the Animist, has been wonderful.

Ancient Tomb was in the deck before. It was cut some months after Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx was added. I didn't need two lands that produce more than one mana and I needed space for the cycling lands. I'm actively trying to make Nykthos work well in the deck. If I ever get fed up with trying to build devotion, I'd reconsider Ancient Tomb.

Reliquary Tower isn't part of the deck officially, and still won't be after the Balan swap. If the swap doesn't work out the way I hope it will, it sinply won't happen and Reliquary Tower will be removed from the Maybeboard.

I double-sleeve in KMC Perfect Fits and DragonShield Mattes.

Questions for post-Balan, Wandering Knight switch! I see you are still on the Sram, tsk tsk! =P

Does Flickering Ward and Sram, Senior Edificer stay in the 99 post switch?

Why not keep Caged Sun in the 99? Did the deck get too tight that it had to get cut from adding cards?

Would you consider running Ancient Tomb?

Would you cut Reliquary Tower for Mikokoro, Center of the Sea considering less card draw from Balan?

What sleeves do you use for you commander deck? Dragon shields, kmcs, ultra pro, etc?

@miracleHat: I wouldn't call food chain a straight combo deck, it is more beatdown with an impending combo to just pressure an opponent imo. Then again, you don't see it really placing like vial does right now. Probably because of what you said with so much counter out there stopping a good chain.

Since you mentioned the Ancient Tomb not being great I checked a bunch of placing decklists on mtgtop8 for legacy goblins and am not seeing it now. I guess goblins have changed a bit since I last checked, used to be pretty standard to run 2-3. They help me out a lot, but I'm running my gob decks much differently.

I forgot to mention Legion Loyalist as a 1x is pretty nice as well.
