Barrage of Expendables Discussion

@KingRamz: Thanks for the tips! I will be adding Melira, Sylvok Outcast in place of Ivy Lane Denizen and Vizier of Remedies in place of Durable Handicraft. Gonna pass on Solemnity for now as it can cancel out Cathars' Crusade.

@ShotgunCrocodile: Awesome! Thanks for the heads up. Swapping Goblin Bombardment in for Barrage of Expendables now!

Goblin Bombardment is just a better Barrage of Expendables since there is no activation cost.

Since most of your effects exile the creatures instead of them dying, things like Ashnod's Altar will probably be better, since they actually die and it generates mana. Personally I like Culling Dais as you can refill your hand pretty easily. Also something that accomplishes both forcing the creature to die and deal damage is Barrage of Expendables. Infernal Plunge is a good way to generate some mana too.

You're 100% correct. The idea was to have a ton of tokens and have them all pay for themselves along side Barrage of Expendables and just clear my board for lethal. I've never gotten that to work but I still always win or lose by turn 5.

I could make this deck better if I removed that gimmick and some day maybe I will. Haha

Personally, I run Safehold Elite in my infinite persist deck, and I do not recommend you follow suit. The only reason I keep it in my deck is because persist is my alternate win condition to Battle of Wits, and, with 240 cards in the deck, I need to maximize the number of inexpensive persist creatures I run.

You already have 8 different sacrifice targets between Kitchen Finks and Murderous Redcap, and both provide greater utility. Wall of Omens might be a better choice, as it replaces itself and provides a fairly bulky blocker in the early game.

I ran a gatherer search for free sacrifice otulets in your colours, and the only card I found was Greater Good. I do not think that is a good option, since you will mill yourself pretty quickly. In colourless, you have access to Demonmail Hauberk, which would help with beating down your opponents, should that become necessary. With your Tutor, I would not recommend more than two additional sacrifice cards. I would replace Barrage of Expendables, as the required mana cost is a tad inefficient.

uncle_istvan_fears_nothing For the most part, those cards wouldn't really help too much due to the fact that this version of Krenko is more of a combo deck than just tribal Goblins. The cuts I would have to make in order to fit these in would probably not help the deck much. I will state that I didn't have another copy of Goblin Bombardment for the deck, hence why Barrage of Expendables is listed. But the reality is that Bombardment is way better :) Lackey and Investigator could probably find a place somewhere for cheating some combo Goblins into play, though... I'll have to look at what to cut.

Great deck. The first card I thought of was Goblin Bombardment, seems better than Barrage of Expendables as the game progresses. It costs around a buck not sure what your budget cutoff is though. :)

Here are some suggestions off the top of my head. You are at 63 cards. And I'm fairly sure we've had the 60 card discussion before. :D

Consider the following changes:
-1 Bomber Corps
-1 Lightning Strike
-1 Thunderous Wrath
That drops you to 60 without any major changes to the the deck.

Here are some other cards I want you to consider:
Crash Through and Faithless Looting for card draw.
You are going to need a sideboard for more competitive environments. And the sideboard also works for testing maybe cards. Take a look at Legion Loyalist, Stonewright, Tormod's Crypt, Electrostatic Bolt, Smelt, Shattering Spree, Shattering Blow, Monastery Swiftspear, Skullcrack, Collateral Damage, Barrage of Expendables, Pyrite Spellbomb and Searing Blood as either main or sideboard cards.

Sideboard suggestion:
3 Tormod's Crypt
3 Smelt
2 Searing Blood
2 Slagstorm
2 Shattering Blow
3 ???, not sure on this one.

Let me know what you think.
