Collateral Damage Discussion

Unfortunately, Artillerize is just trash. Collateral Damage is basically a bolt but still much better than a 4 mana 5 damage. Fiery Conclusion is also decent but can't target players. If you want more acceleration, I suggest Infernal Plunge, since it's basically a red Dark Ritual.

Hope this helps!

Thank you- I was unaware of the printing of Village Rites.

Collateral Damage, in this setup won out over Lightning Bolt because we're looking at 4-5dage for 1 Mana, versus 3 for 1.

The cat oven combo might be fun. But what would be reasonable to take out for the combo?

The priest is interesting - I literally had an entire paragraph written as to why it's not used, but the more I think it over... Lol for Gravecrawler I only point out that there are not zombies here to fuel the reanimation.

I would really like there to be a Rakdos Aristocrats deck in modern

Village Rites is strictly better than Altar's Reap. Lightning Bolt is strictly better than Collateral Damage. Priest of Forgotten Gods works as a great sacrifice outlet for creatures. Maybe use the Cauldron Familiar+Witch's Oven combo? Gravecrawler is an endless sac outlet if you have a zombie. Call of the Death-Dweller is good for reanimating.

Good Luck!

Phostration- That's a good question that deserves an in-depth answer. I admit, Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin sounds good at first glance; and I admittedly, ran 2x of Kingpin in this in a prototyoe version. I took him out for several reasons.

First, the speed of the deck rarely allows for more than 3-4 goblins at a time. Goblin Grenade, Collateral Damage, Skirk Prospector, and the unavoidable dogpile-style blocking, keep the number of multiply-able targets rather low.

Second, the archetype. This is more of a burn style deck, and doesn't allow room for necessary pump cards. Therefore, the value from aggro, and (most importantly) the survivability of Kingpin are minimalized. Making this 3-cost goblin without Haste, an ill fit for this particular Tribal-goblin, burn build.

Hope that clears it up for ya! Thanks for the upvote and a great question!! Play on!

Thanks DBCooper! I had playtested Heartfire and found that the 2cmc was too much in the early game; but Thud isn't ideal either since it's at sorcery speed. I'll put in the Collateral Damage right away.

Collateral Damage may be a prudent consideration. As always, I love your deck. Great work.

Collateral Damage, Boggart Shenanigans, and Goblin Arsonist may be worth considering.

I have a modern deck that has a similar aim which you may like taking a look at here: Exploding Goblins - $40 Budget Build

Overall Great deck +1

Gomoomog on Goblin Tokens Burn

Collateral Damage and Artillerize are good burn spells for tokens. Goblin Arsonist and Mudbutton Torchrunner are good targets for sacrifice spells as well.
