Dolmen Gate Discussion

LittleBlueHero on Edgar's Dega Vampires

I know this deck is retired but it still seems like the place to go with Vampire tribal related questions.

Are Dolmen Gate or Iroas, God of Victory worth running as another Reconnaissance type effect? They would still allow us to get attack triggers off our smaller creatures when needed.

Also after some teasers from this years upcoming products we know Baron Sengir will be getting a new card. For flavor reasons I kinda hope he's still mono black but from a commander standpoint I wouldn't mind if they gave him a new color treatment like they did for Volrath, the Shapestealer this past year

Some quick 2 cents on other entries:

TypicalTimmy Show

Boza Show

As for my own suggestion on Hunt, I'm sitting on two versions and would like some feedback on the concept if possible before deciding a final route. I'll note which version will be the main entry until I change my mind or the challenge ends - when is that btw dbpunk?

Mechanic Show

Examples for model 1 Show

At the moment I will not make examples on the second variant.

Cards to cut:

  • Barrier of Bones
  • Garna, the Bloodflame
  • Hellrider
  • Hope of Ghirapur
  • Judith, the Scourge Diva
  • Keldon Overseer
  • Mayhem Devil
  • Noxious Groodion
  • Undercity Necrolisk
  • Demonic Vigor

Gassing out can be a major issue with low CMC decks, you want to make sure you draw. For that reason, I don't like Obelisk of Urd or The Immortal Sun for this deck; by the time you get to 6 mana you should already be pouring out your hand. Icon of Ancestry and Herald's Horn come in play earlier and bring Goblins into your hand. Then Vanquisher's Banner renews you hand as you play them. All of these will work well only if all your creatures are Goblins. If you want to add another piece, I would look into Mind's Eye .

I had intentionally left out Rakdos Carnarium, because it is a slow land. This deck needs to be fast and furious.

I can't believe I forgot Shared Animosity! It is imperative to include it. Another card that is on-theme and underestimated is Goblin War Drums , equivalent to Angrath. Also since you want to attack with many small creatures, I am sure you would love Dolmen Gate .

Hope you are not overwhelmed with all these suggestions!

I don't have a Goblin deck, but here is a link to my Vampires, maybe it an give you ideas of a tribal synergy.

Renata, Called to the Hunt might be good. Also, there's always the tried and true Dolmen Gate

Curious how Mechanized Production , Dolmen Gate and Grasp of Fate have worked out for you as I've considered all of them. Grasp of Fate seems like an obvious choice here but I'm especially curious about the other two. Decks seems cool!

Oh, also, Darksteel Forge is a classic wincon for artifact aggro. Especially good with Saheeli's discount ability, Master Transmuter , and the artifact tutors. Dolmen Gate is really nice too, but less necessary with fliers and big Eldrazi.

For that, I'd recommend Reconnaissance , as well as Dolmen Gate . Since Varina relies on having to attack people, you might be in a tough situation where everyone has blockers, and you don't want to lose any of your zombies. Also, Reconnaissance is just a sweet card that I think more people should be playing (vigilance for all your creatures).
