Festering Goblin Discussion

Welcome to the club! The top two bits of advice for deckbuilding are always going to be 1) Pick an idea and run with that, and 2) Load up on multiples copies of your most important cards.

Zombie tribal and Goblin tribal have some overlaps, with cards like Putrid Goblin and Festering Goblin , but if you want to focus on the tribal aspects, it's almost always better to have a dedicated Zombie deck and a dedicated Goblin deck.

What direction do you want this deck to go in? There's a base for hard, high speed aggression, there's a base for a more midrange build (start with early disruption, like discard and destroy spells, until you can cast a few strong creatures and put full pressure on your opponent), there's a base for sacrificing creatures for fun and profit... All of these are valid strategies.

Step 1: Choose the cards or interactions you like best, and buy four of each of those cards. Pick a focus, and develop that as you get more cards.

Some more specific suggestions: You don't have a deep base for Doublecast , with only 11 instants and sorceries, compared to 19 creatures. Similarly, Uncaged Fury and Abnormal Endurance beef up just one of your creatures, when you're able to dump lots of creatures out. Look for cards that support swarms of creatures, rather than single creatures. Also, more removal would help--your opponents are going to be doing things too, and if you can Murder a key creature or two, that will make it easier for your creatures to push through.

Above all, have fun!

There is a difference between a creature getting -1/-1 and getting a -1/-1 counter. Ascendant Evincar and Festering Goblin don't interact with Obelisk Spider.

Fun! Minor suggestion, Festering Mummy instead of Festering Goblin? It's nearly the same card, but just -1/-1 counters instead of till end of turn. And it's dirt cheap!

I would cut Festering Goblin, it is just really bad and instead make use of another zombie lord Death Baron being the best but stupidly expensive and then Metallic Mimic, Cemetery Reaper, Risen Executioner, Lord of the Undead, and Undead Warchief all also being options. I would also look into Vengeful Pharaoh for some incidental removal.

As for sideboard it is first necessary to evaluate the decks you face before making the sideboard.

This deck looks dope AF. I fucking love madcap skills and I'm sure you will too. Would recommend a few changes:1) I would definitely tidy up the mana a bit, run some nonbasics 2) Thrill-Kill Assassin is an uncommon, maybe run something like Ravenous Rats to go with the discard theme or Festering Goblin or Goblin Arsonist to go with the sacrifice theme 3) opinions on Reckless Charge?

I'd replace Festering Goblin or Festering Mummy with Bond Beetle as I find it hard to justify playing cards that give -1/-1 until end of turn on opponent creature unless there's some specific benifit.

Rot Shambler, Bloodbriar, Voracious Null for a bit of muscle gain.

Why aren't you playing Bontu the Glorified? He was made for decks like this.

Brindle Boar for some quick lifegain.

And then there's creatures with undying and unearth that are easily brought back for a second sacrifice.

Ever thought about running Awakening Zone or From Beyond? You could use the Eldrazi spawns/scions as mana ramp or chump blockers or sacrificial minions as long as you have an outlet.

Bontu's Monument and Rhonas's Monument for cheaper creatures.

I have a casual deck titled Suicidal Thoughts that focuses on sacrificing. Check it out if you're interested.
