Chancellor of the Forge

Creature — Giant

You may reveal this card from your opening hand. If you do, at the beginning of the first upkeep, put a 1/1 red Goblin creature token with haste onto the battlefield. When Chancellor of the Furnace enters the battlefield, put X 1/1 red Goblin creatures with haste onto the battlefield, where X is the number of creatures you control.

Gob-droid001 on Goblin Rush

Hi there kmanz23 I love Goblin decks and am more than happy to make some suggestions:

  • Lightning Crafter can be used to create an infinite damage loop with Kiki-Jiki and Goblin Bombardment, you champion Kiki and sacrifice the crafter token after tapping it to deal damage, this will bring Kiki back - rinse and repeat
  • Goblin Sledder + Goblin Tunneler can instantly kill an opponent if you make sledder unblockable before making the sacrifice
  • Chancellor of the Forge is Krenko Jr for these kind of decks and can be copied by Kiki
  • Hellrider and Purphoros, God of the Forge can be used to burn opponents hard once you start spawning the horde

Hope these suggestions help, if you want more ideas please check out my deck

, I'd love to hear some feedback - did you know there is a thread in the forums for advertising Commander decks too?

Dragon Broodmother kann nicht dein Commander sein, Alternativen fuer ne Lifegain / Token / Devour Strategie waeren:

Empfehle ausserdem Karten die nix mit dem Lifegain / Token / Devour Theme zu tun haben (wie z.B. Flameblast Dragon, Radha, Heir to Keld etc.) zu replacen:

I don't think that Chancellor of the Forge would fit here. I would be looking for more ramp instead of racing to get the opponent down to zero life. Spikeshot Elder could make it into the sidebar in case I need another win condition. Hellrider is a pretty good call out, as it activates other abilities in the deck as well. However if I'm just looking for more cards that activate other abilities in play, Ash Zealot might be better.

I would say that you may need more haste enabling Goblin Chieftains. Also Shared Animosity and Spikeshot Elder is a lot of fun with goblins. You could also consider some other late game bombs like Hellrider, Voracious Dragon, or Chancellor of the Forge although you may need more ramp from something like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx in order to cast those early. I know I'm throwing a lot of thoughts at you but there are just so many things you can build around in a deck like this.

The big changes recently...

Siege-Gang Commander out for Beetleback Chief: Just trying to cut down the CMC a bit more, plus I never get to use the second ability of SGC anyway.

Wheel of Fortune out for Memory Jar: I've been going back and forth on this for a long time, and I finally decided to do it after a string of bad luck with Wheel. Wheel is amazing normally, and I don't know if it is just the deck or my meta, but 9 out of 10 times I play it it ends up going worse for me. Worse yet, I found myself holding onto it and not casting it. Memory Jar allows me to get the effect, I don't have to pitch my original hand if I have a good one, and any benefit to opponents is short lived. Being able to recur it is a huge plus also.

Crawlspace out for Meekstone: Much more effective, and the impact on this deck is minimal (Krenko, Chancellor, Purphoros, Urabrask). I will miss the art though!

Kindred Charge out for Chancellor of the Forge: This change may not stick, or I may just bring Charge back in in addition to the Chancellor, but I tend to have better luck with this effect as a creature than I do with a sorcery. Not losing the new tokens at the end of turn is great too.

Aggravated Assault out: I originally added this because the deck felt one turn away from winning very often at the end of a game someone else won. I figured getting more combats in, or the...14 card infinite with Krenko, Mob Boss and Skirk Prospector was fun if I ever managed to get it off. Ultimately, drawing deeper into my deck more results in a lot more consistent wins.

Basilisk Collar out: I think this was just me trying to be too cute. Fun, but not consistent or impactful enough.

Invasion Plans out: See above. Nemesis Mask does this way, way better. Playing Invasion Plans was always a huge risk, and there are better finishers.

Skirk Fire Marshal out: While great with Basilisk Collar, most of the time it's just a really hard to play around effect, as strong as it is. I would rather have Goblin Assassin back in eventually.

Myriad Landscape out for Buried Ruin: Entering the battlefield tapped is ultimately what killed this for me. Buried Ruin fits the spot better.

Great Furnace in: Added to up the artifact count for the new manarock.

Mox Opal in: Now that I've raised the artifact count a bit, including this is easier than before. Also helps a bit to offload mana generation away from the lands a bit, in cases where I want to sac them all but not be stranded after.

Imperial Recruiter in: Hell yeah! This finally got reprinted, which dropped the price from $150+ to probably around $50. Can grab so, so many good creatures.

Fervor in: I've wanted one more haste enabler for a long time. This might eventually change to Mass Hysteria.

Font of Mythos in: In an effort to drastically increasing my draw, I'm trying symmetrical draw effects for the first time. The hope is to take advantage of it faster than my opponents. We'll see how that goes!

Horn of Greed in: As the deck gets better, getting multiple land drops in a turn becomes more consistent, and I rarely miss a land drop anymore. I would only be worried about this against one green deck in my meta, but even then it is always a race anyway, at least this time it will be more fun.

Scour from Existence in: Rather than just running either this or Spine of Ish Sah, I am going to run both. The deck plays so much better the more interactive it becomes.

That's the biggest number of changes I made since the deck's first revision more than a year ago! I'm confident I will be happy with most of the changes, but as always, this deck will constantly change to be the most powerful and most fun I can make it.
