Boggart Shenanigans Discussion

I feel that Boggart Shenanigans should be Raid Bombardment and Massive Raid should be Lightning Bolt. Raid Bombardment probably will deal twice the damage that Boggart Shenanigans will deal, and Lightning Bolt is vital for the one-drop slot.

Hello and welcome back to the game :)

I do like where you are going with this deck idea but there are a lot of improvements to be made. Before I give any niche card suggestions, I'd like you to tell us in what environment will you be playing with the deck (e.g. with friends at home, at your LGS, 1v1, multiplayer e.t.c.) as well as set a budget per card (e.g. no more than $5 or $10 per card) and in general, what do you want the deck to do? (overwhelm people with mogs? sacrificial shenanigans? both? more than these?). There's a plethora of very strong card that could fit your colours and thematic, but instead of putting random cards here, i'd prefer giving you suggestions that fit what you want to do. Nevertheless, just to give you some ideas: Attrition, Death Pits of Rath, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Descent of the Dragons, Dictate of Erebos and many others.

With this said, there have already been some generally good suggestions already given (i.e. the goblin lords: Goblin Chieftain, Goblin Warchief, Goblin King).

In addition to those I'd consider running Moggcatcher and Skirk Fire Marshal in any goblin deck. The first one, albeit not a goblin, can really help you pull out your most needed creature at every given time. Boggart Shenanigans can be a potentially strong card. The same can be said for Goblin Matron.

Long time Krenko player here. The artifacts you have aren't great.

Look into Sol Ring obviously, Thousand-Year Elixir to use Krenko multiple times a turn, Thornbite Staff, and Umbral Mantle more on these two later, use Swiftfoot Boots to protect Krenko. Additionally you'll want some mana, so Ashnod's Altar is a great card here.

For Instants and Sorceries, you'll want Krenko's Command, Dragon Fodder, Goblin War Strike, Hordeling Outburst, Massive Raid.

Goblinwise, Skirk Prospector and Goblin Chirurgeon are key. If budget isn't too much of a problem you'll want Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and (the not as expensive) Lightning Crafter. Grenzo, Havoc Raiser can be used as an alternate wincon and way to take out problematic creatures or players in multiplayer games. Purphoros, God of the Forge, while not a Goblin is too good not to have in the deck.

Enchantments. Believe me when I say this: Goblinslide is trash. It simply doesn't cut it. Look into the following: Boggart Shenanigans, Goblin Bombardment, Goblin Warrens, Impact Tremors, Mana Echoes, and Quest for the Goblin Lord.

Check out my deck for ideas. I don't know if it is too competitive for you: Krenko and Kiki-Jiki's Goblin Horde

I've played B Goblins and R Goblins for ages. Been wanting to mix them for ages - seems like a lot of fun!

Marsh Flitter (for the theme of the deck) would be a great addition in helping the revolt trigger of Fatal Push for a low cost of sacrificing a Token, Festering Goblin or a Shambling Goblin and, perhaps, getting rid of a creature on the opponents side of the battlefield in the process. That is, of course, if you run 4x Shambling Goblin instead of 4x Festering Goblin; since Festering Goblin needs a legal target that can, accidentally, hit your own creatures if the opponent has none (there is no "may" in the the rules text) - whereas Shambling Goblin's ability fizzles if there is no legal target (if the opponent has no creatures the ability can't trigger).

However, there is a cheaper alternative in Nantuko Husk which can easily pump itself out of reach of various burn spells by sacrificing one or more creatures. Though it sadly isn't a goblin nor is "goblin" in its rules text :(

The above mentioned sacrifice engines does synergize quite well with the cards HurricaneZach suggested as well (especially with Wort, Boggart Auntie and Boggart Shenanigans)

TIP: (If possible, wanted or necessary) - as you cast Boggart Mob aim its Champion ability at Boggart Harbinger as it will make Boggart Harbinger's ability trigger again as Boggart Mobb leaves the battlefield :)

No problem. Glad to help. I personally enjoy red decks too. More things to mull over would be Sol Ring for mana and Outpost Siege for draw/extra Boggart Shenanigans type card.

I think you should add more sacrifice outlets such as Goblin Bombardment along with Boggart Shenanigans. With sac outlets and a Thornbite Staff, you can go infinite with Krenko. You should also add cards like Gempalm Incinerator, Mob Justice, and Kyren Negotiations.

Firstly, welcome to the realm of EDH!

I will mention that unlike more mainstream versions of Magic ( Standard, Modern, Legacy, etc ) Commander tends to be a more social format. As such I would caution against going too hard into hand/land destruction ( some is fine ). Just be aware of the playgroups you play with. If they seem hesitant to play with you if you use this deck, you may wish to shelve it or tone it down.

Now, for what's important, card suggestions! Here's a few that may or may not help your red/black Gobbie tribal theme: Boggart Shenanigans to help squeeze that extra damage out of your Goblins on death. That pairs well with your skullclamp and also with Ashnod's Altar if you need extra mana.

Gauntlet of Power may also assist you in powering up your Goblins and boosting your manabase. For the ultimate manabase cheese, you can't go past Mana Echoes. As a backup or if you're facing opponents with fearsome board states, I would also suggest giving some consideration to sideboarding Blasphemous Act ( works wonders in a goblin deck ) and Vandalblast.
