Arms Dealer Discussion

TallGreg on Incredibly Impetuous

definitely not Goblin Rabblemaster , if you want more goblins you can do so much better.

Mogg War Marshal would be my first choice, he provides bodies to sacrifice or chump and he's the perfect thing to sacrifice to Goblin Grenade

Mudbutton Torchrunner is a great blocker and your opponent is unlikely to block, he's an even better sac fodder, but is 3 mana

Goblin Arsonist same thing as torchrunner, but only 1 mana and 1 damage., the perfect target for grenade.

Arms Dealer is a repeatable goblin grenade,

Warren Instigator basically a double Goblin Lackey , he's nuts.

personally I wouldn't recommend anymore goblins, but if you must then definitley one of these over Goblin Rabblemaster, he's just terrible in a burn deck.

I have been thinking about Goblin Guide but the rest are ones I am not looking into. Like Arms Dealer is sacking my guys when krenko wants all my guys on the field to get more goblins. Krenko's Command can be slow because a turn 2 play would be Dreadbore or Terminate or maybe Warren Instigator . Blood Crypt is probably a great fixer or Dragonskull Summit . Mizzium Mortars should replaced for what though?

I would definitely suggest Arms Dealer If you can get krenko out you can sac a bunch of token cards to deal damage to any creatures that are in your goblins way. Emberwilde Augur would be great for this deck since its a burn. Dogpile would also be good, especially if you pull out krenko and get to work with him. However, it is a bit over what you said you wanted your mana cost to be (4), but I would consider it. Maybe Barrage of Expendables would be a more cost efficient alternative.

For the record, all of these cards are under $1 on amazon. Good luck. :)

Arms Dealer only targets creatures, and is therefore less versatile then Siege-Gang Commander in my opinion.Great deck!

With 40 life, I've never played an EDH match in less than 20 minutes. I've seen swings for 30 life, but it took a while to build it up; you can always throw Door of Destinies in, and try it to see how effective it is, and if it's too slow drop it.

I musta brain-farted on the EDH/splash bit, I'm just now starting to get into it myself, using Mayael the Anima , Rompin' Stompin' Big'uns.

The Skirk Fire Marshal said "board wipe" to me, which everyone keeps telling me are essential in EDH games, but SFM is just a creature wipe, so it's kinda a maybe-card since I don't know how many board wipes are available to red.

That said, you'll need artifact hate like Smelt , Shatter , Overload and Vandalblast even though it's not a goblin, Ember Swallower will help you in that (1) it's a fattie, whereas goblins are typically weenie, and (2) you won't need a ton of lands since most gobs are low cost.

On another quick look, I also found:

Arms Dealer

Battle Squadron and Horde of Boggarts , kinda like the aforementioned Reckless One

Beetleback Chief for more tokens

Bloodmark Mentor

Boggart Shenanigans to ping your opponent

Caterwauling Boggart kinda like Iroas, God of Victory

Foundry Street Denizen , used a lot in standard red aggro decks.

Goblin Assassin , if you like coin flips, if yer a gamblin' man

Goblin Bushwhacker & Goblin Wardriver before the swarm

Goblin Gaveleer if you use equipment

Goblin Snowman as a blocker

...then of course combat instants like Dynacharge and Weapon Surge

+1 for goblins as they are the best tribe in mtg. id use at least 2 krenkos as they can win the game for you in a few turns. id swap out Siege-Gang Commander for Arms Dealer as its 4 damage instead of 2 if you want to check out my goblin deck king krenko Price
