SamsWrath on Grenzo's 5 shades of red

Have you considered Gobos such as Frenzied Goblin , Intimidator Initiate , Caterwauling Boggart and Goblin Battle Jester ? They would help you land combat damage so you can get more triggers from Grenzo's ability.

I'm only halfway through reading the description and I already love it. Related note: how do you have partial card names linked? I'm super jealous of that ability.

Regarding recommendations, I know you're creature-light, but my Krenko goblin tribal deck has really enjoyed Caterwauling Boggart and an elemental tribal deck also seems an appropriate home. While they already have trample, menace can be really useful in getting through more damage.

You also don't have much in the way of ramp. Obviously, your deck is fairly low CMC, but a Commander's Sphere or Mind Stone ramps you early and gives card draw later.

Depending on your meta, Red Elemental Blast could be good removal and/or protection.

I don't love Opal Palace because the +1/+1 counters don't seem to matter incredibly much and it doesn't produce red on its own. This is especially important since so many of your red cards have double or triple mana requirements.

Thanks for the suggestions.

I should also like to mention that the deck should probably be considered a "budget" deck -- I actually try to keep most around $125, which allows for a few really strong cards, but the rest have to be cheap and synergistic. This means that things like Cavern of Souls, Blood Moon, Braid of Fire, Mana Echoes, Shared Animosity, etc. are not really options, unless I already own them.

Second, given that this 1v1 the overall CMC (currently 2.75) needs to stay low. So, I'm trying not to include anything over a four-drop, unless it has great synergy (e.g. Kindred Charge or Berserkers' Onslaught) or can be considered a win-con (e.g. Burn at the Stake).

On that note, I've already included a number of the cards that you suggest, including Kindred Charge, Caterwauling Boggart, and Gempalm Incinerator.

All that being said, if you could give me an idea of which cards, out of those suggested, you think are strictly better than cards already included, then I could get a better idea of which possible changes to make. Again, thanks for the suggestions.

Hi, freakingShane

First of all I really like your Purhporos goblin tribal deck!

As you mentioned your deck is built to be closer to a 1 vs 1 Commander (French) deck, but still I want to suggest you some of the cards for more multiplayer game strategy that imho I think you should consider to add.

Analizing your deck I see some problems in too low count of draw engines. I think you need to maximize draw power cuz in current state after several board whipes you just be run out of gas.

Card advantage:

Ramp:

  • Mana Crypt - expensive but cost all its money.

  • Ancient Tomb - nice land, cut mountain for it.

  • Herald’s Horn - was mentioned before.

Tutors:

  • Imperial Recruiter - I know it is expensive card but it can tutor 80% of all your creatures!

  • Gamble - saves me hundred of times! Offcorse it has drawback and you can discard what you was looking for, but still it is best tutor in red color.

Control & Others:

Cards I think you need to cut out:

P.S. Sorry for some grammar mistakes it was hell of amount of text to type ;-P
