Cunning Sparkmage Discussion

Verdachte.Magie on Death By 1000 Cuts

4 weeks ago

At this Point where the deck is right now, I would cut Thermo-Alchemist, which I like, Nettle Drone Forgeborn Oreads and probably Curse of the Pierced Heart, as well as Basilica Guards ... I see the value in the last both cards in this deck, but I think there are better options to fill there spots.

... here are some creature suggestions:

Vexing Devil

Gibbering Fiend or Grim Lavamancer

Goblin Fireslinger

maybe 1 Scorched Rusalka

Boros Charm !!!!

Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh  Flip

Cunning Sparkmage ??!

Hihi: Devil token could be fun as well like Devils' Playground, Dance with Devils, or Make Mischief... But actually all this spells are expensive... But having one or two copies of Devils' Playground in your deck can be mean with all the Impact Tremors and Panharmonicon.

rockmsockmhobo on Grenzo- Fun for ten bucks

you can get some activations off grenzo with pinging cards like Cunning SparkmageEndbringerFrostwielderInferno Titan and other cards like that. there's a lot of them out there. also add some more flavor to the mages backing your goblin army; give them deathtouch Gorgon's Head or card draw Rogue's Gloves or just shut them up Neko-Te.

lonker on Potential Rogue Build?

The idea is to use Blood Moon to make all of your opponent's lands into mountains, then you enchant their lands with Genju of the Spires, then kill it with a pinger like Cunning Sparkmage or something like Pyroclasm. You would be able to consistently get Genju of the Spires and Blood Moon with Heliod's Pilgrim or Idyllic Tutor every game. After you destroy their landbase, you could use a cheeky card like Terra Eternal or Sacred Ground and start enchanting your own mountains to quickly beat down on your opponents. Another idea is to use goblin cards like Dragon Fodder, or Krenko's Command alongside Goblin Bombardment to easily ping your opponent's lands. What do you guys think? I personally think it could be an extremely fun rogue deck. Also, post ideas and your decks to add to this rogue archetype. It helps a lot.

Hopefully I didn't miss anyone listing these
Sun Titan + (Animate Dead / Angelic Renewal / Gift of Immortality / Dance of the Dead ) + Goblin Bombardment => infinite damage
Hell's Caretaker + Thornbite Staff => enables infinite reanimations during upkeep
Saffi Eriksdotter + Karmic Guide / Renegade Rallier / Reveillark + Goblin Bombardment => infinite damage (sacrifice saffi, target the reanimator then sacrifice reanimator to goblin bombardment)
persist / undying creatures + Nim Deathmantle + Ashnod's Altar => infinite ETBs for the creature you're using
Grave Titan (or anything that generates 2+ tokens) + Nim Deathmantle + Ashnod's Altar => infinite tokens
Isochron Scepter + Dramatic reversal + Gilded Lotus (or any nonland mana source that gets you at least 3 mana) => infinite mana and untaps.
(Animate Dead / Dance of the Dead) + Worldgorger Dragon => infinite etb triggers for your side of the board.
Eye of the Storm + "take an extra turn" cards => infinite turns
2x Felidar Guardian + let's say Champion of Lambholt => infinite etb triggers for cards that care about other cards etbing
Saheeli Rai + Felidar Guardian => infinite 1/4works (create token of felidar with saheeli, flicker saheeli with token's etb, repeat)
Hellkite Charger / Aggravated Assault + Bear Umbra / Nature's Will => infinite combat steps
Arcanis the Omnipotent + Mind Over Matter => infinite card draw, infinite untaps
Reconnaissance + Cunning Sparkmage => attack with sparkmage, target sparkmage howevermany times with recon, respond to untaps resolving by tapping sparkmage => infinite damage
Forbidden Orchard + Intruder Alarm + Voyaging Satyr => infinite mana, infinite creatures under opponent's control, infinite creature untapspersist creatures + Juniper Order Ranger / Cathars' Crusade + Goblin Bombardment => infinite damage
Most of the combos built around persist / infinitely recurring creatures work with any sac outlet and some effect that abuses etb / death triggers, but that would take too long to write in each case so I mostly used goblin bombardment instead of Thermopod + Impact Tremors. Hopefully this is at least somewhat useful.
Cheerios.

I would say the biggest problem with this Rakdos, Lord of Riots build is the lack or cheap sources of early damage that cost no mana to activate by the time you have the needed to drop Rakdos, Lord of Riots. Rakdos Ickspitter, Spiteful Returned, Mardu Shadowspear, and Goblin Fireslinger are the only cards I see that guarantee damage assuming they have blockers. I would Up the count of cards that do this job to at least 10, If you do that you can afford to convert the rest of these dinky creatures to the Plethera of beat sticks that this guild has access to. Other worthwhile cards for this job are Cinder Pyromancer, Cunning Sparkmage, Dauthi Slayer, Goblin Arsonist, Honden of Infinite Rage, Lobber Crew, Mogg Fanatic, Nettle Drone, Goblin Sharpshooter, and Tunneling Geopede.

DeepbloodEclipse on Abzan Deathtouch

I played once a similar deck to this, but used W/B/R. I utilized Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile, Cunning Sparkmage, Stun Sniper or Vulshok Sorcerer in combination with a deathtouch enchantment or artfiact like Aspect of Gorgon, Basilisk Collar, Gorgon's Head or Quietus Spike. The results were...very amusing.

Hey, I got thinking yesterday and thought that Goblin Fireslinger would make a cheaper replacment for Cunning Sparkmage and/or Vulshok Sorcerer.
