Dust Bowl Discussion
1 week ago
Some cards that cone to mind right away:
- Crop Rotation
- Marsh Flats
- Misty Rainforest
- Windswept Heath
- Myriad Landscape
- Blighted Woodland
- Blighted Fen
- Dust Bowl
- Eldritch Evolution
- Mutilate + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
Some things from the maybe board that really need to go in would be:
- Kalonian Hydra, if it sticks, you win.
- Gyre Sage, huge mana maker.
- Swarmyard, protect your bug-wizard!
Some cards I would remove:
- Hell's Caretaker, does nothing unless he sticks around a full turn, easy to kill, can only use during upkeep.
- Blightsteel Colossus, great card but in this deck he just doesn't fit the theme as well as some other choices.
- Bloodspore Thrinax, decent card but there are better options for the slot.
- Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, underwhelming.

I also built a Krenko EDH deck and while my creature base isn't as hardcore as yours (totally putting in Battle Squadron!) I do have a couple suggestions.
Land destruction is huge in goblin decks. Boom/Bust, Ruination, Wake of Destruction, Dust Bowl, Ghost Quarter have all done their work well for me, even throwing in a Thespian's Stage for added value hurts.
Illusionist's Bracers let you use Krenko twice, essentially quadrupling your horde every turn.
Mass damage via Mob Justice or Bonfire of the Damned is always a table-flipper. Even Five-Alarm Fire is useful, swing for lethal on one opponent, use the blaze counters to kill the second during the last main phase.
I've had good luck with Sword of the Paruns for tapping Krenko multiple times in a turn.
Anyway, great deck!

Alright here is a ton of cards that seems to fit the theme. Some are definitely better then others I'm just giving a list of cards. Some of these cards are not budget
Hope you find something useful within all these!

I see Karametra being great at pumping out a lot of little dudes instead of big dudes, looks like you're trying to mimic Xenagos play.
I would consider :
- Rude Awakening
- Bow of Nylea
- Overwhelming Stampede
- Fierce Empath
- Craterhoof Behemoth
- Ondu Giant
And remove :
- Steel Hellkite (nonbo)
- Wurmcoil Engine (nonbo)
- Serra Avatar (not really a lifegain deck)
- Soul's Majesty
- Momentous Fall
- Rishkar's Expertise
- Genesis Wave (nonbo)

@ Worx : Always glad to see you pop up again :)
The current landcounts feels pretty much optimal. So I am not hapy to tweak this total. But I do see your point about Plains vs. the bow. But I think I do not ever use Sisay for him, knowing I have so many other frightening options to choose from. While the mistveil plains I could fetch using other means if really nessesary. But again, you are the second to point me to this bow. As Austin_Smith_of_Cards recently also did. Let me overthink this futhermore...
The artifact lands are indeed a great addition, now that we know that Mox Opal will be here soon xD I know it's a no-brainer. But I just totally forgot about this mox since this build was relatively low on artifacts until the recent changes.
I have been testing with Reki as it's an ok card, so i was looking into upgrading his slot to a more powerful route. And it looks like great minds think alike, as I bought a foil Selvala a few days ago and was waiting to get it delivered. Today I got it and I am also going to enjoy the godly interactions you already had the pleasure to play with.
Thanks for yet another great review!

You are most welcome Party.... mutual help to ensure we have best decks in our respective metas is ALWAYS the goal :)
I would suggest that you swap out Mistveil Plains for Bow of Nylea ... yes, drop to 37 lands... Think about it.... Bow is another legendary to get, can put back Inventors' Fair or other graveyarded card.... then again who cares when we will win.
I also highly suggest you swap Dust Bowl for Ancient Den and Sunpetal Grove for Tree of Tales (Sunpetal can not be fetched and is one of those you rely on just getting and maybe... maybe with KoR - which itself can't be tutored. Then I also HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend you get Mox Opal as a ZERO drop legendary rock is ESSENTIAL to an easier win for Paradox Engine - seriously mate - a no brainer. In fact I would even drop a land to get in the Opal .. maybe Razorverge Thicket
Now you know my Sissay deck.... mine is more aggressive towards a reliable turn 3/4 Paradox Engine win, so I swapped out the Loyal Retainers, Sun Titan, Safekeeper and Titania for one drop legends, and Selvala, Explorer Returned is just GODLY with the mana and draw ability on EVERY Paradox Engine trigger..... but also maybe if you do go down that route, you may want to consider Concordant Crossroads for the one drop haste for all creatures - who cares if opponents creatures have haste when you are about to win..... another control option that is FAR cheaper than Dromoka is Dosan the Falling Leaf....
But anyway.... you know I respect and appreciate your deck.... I'll not say anymore at moment.... our decks should be mutually helping one another :)

@ WarxuarozEntreiI have not forgotten about you guys! I have just been working a metric shit ton of hours... and tonight... I am drinking :) So I would like to say that my good friend Jack says hi. Also fetchlands feel like cheating, especially in mono color. I know, it's not but it feels so wrong so I don't do it. Also it just helps me find Mistveil Plains. Otherwise thinning isn't that much, from what I've read.
Also, Stash looks interesting but frustrating at the same time due to to the mill. I dunno about that one. If I brought in another utility card, it's probably be Dust Bowl.
I just want to add that my friend Jack is a real asshole! He always disappears when your looking for him! LMFAO Cheers friends :)
