Frogtosser Banneret Discussion

wallisface cool!! I think that Krenko, Mob Boss is kind of a key card for what I was going for, but I suppose Voracious Dragon and Goblin Ringleader might not be worth the wait. I was thinking something like Goblin Piledriver as big damage potential with Legion Loyalist , or Mogg War Marshal for more tokens or Frogtosser Banneret as quick support to cast more goblins in later turns. What about substituting Krenko, Mob Boss and Wort, Boggart Auntie for Legion Warboss or Goblin Rabblemaster ?

I'm looking for a way to endlessly loop Universal Automaton . Came across the idea while brewing modern goblins and noticed between Frogtosser Banneret , Skirk Prospector , Pashalik Mons , Goblin Matron etc. there might be a way to do this without running too many cards that aren't already ok in the archetype.
Long story short I'm after cards that allow me to cast Universal Automaton from the grave as many times as i want on the same turn (e.g. Haakon, Stromgald Scourge , Liliana, Untouched By Death ). The thing is they could be for any creature type, for creatures or artifacts and in virtually any color.
There are a bunch of directions i could go with this so I don't have a list yet. I really only just need the "cast from the grave piece". thx in advance :)

I get what you are trying to do but I feel non changling tribal cards don’t really play well with each other. Ex: Frogtosser Banneret and Bosk Banneret Maybe changling as a base and one or two splash tribes. Like rebels and silvers or zombie and goblins.

Nice deck. It's based off of Legacy Goblins, right? The only thing I'd add is a couple Piledrivers in the main to get those occasional fast wins. Since you're playing black it could be worth trying Frogtosser Banneret in place of Goblin Warchief to allow the possibility of casting a Ringleader or 3-drop + 2-drop on turn 3, though you lose the haste. Also, maybe replace 1 Blood Moon in the side with 1 Magus of the Moon since you can flash it in with Vial.

Hi, I've played (and still play) Rogues extensively in modern, and there are a few things I want to mention:
If you go with the advice above, you'll also need to add a few more one-drops (10-12 total). Stinkdrinker on turn 2 can often mean big damage the next turn, and Blackguard benefits from playing more 1 cmc cards since you can go wide with them and make your opponent discard multiple cards. I also recommend going up on the number of one-drops so you can reliably cast Noggin Whack on curve as it is a great tool to have against Control and Midrange.
There are a few differing opinions out there on the topic of Frogtosser Banneret ; personally, I don't think it's necessary in Rogue decks, but it's not particularly bad, either. It can lead to power turns but if you build your deck around it too much you can get really clunky hands with lots of high cmc Prowl cards and no enablers. I find it to be more consistent and better overall to play more one-drops and cast Prowl cards for their full Prowl costs rather than go for the power plays with Banneret. You do what you want with it, but try not to fall into the deck building trap I mentioned just now.
I wouldn't play too many Whack / Theft since they can tempt you into casting them instead of advancing your board state. Though chaining Noggin Whacks together with Frogtosser Banneret is pretty insane.
The first is more tempo-aggro oriented and the second is all-out aggro (second one is an example of the type of deck where I think Frogtosser shines). They're both mixes of tribal decks (Faerie/Rogue and Goblin/Rogue), so they're a bit different from what you have here, but I hope they help.

Thanks for chipping in some info JKRice! So I've actually debated multiple times on the idea of Skirk Prospector in the deck, and while I think that it's a very good card and definitely has a place in a goblins deck in modern, I don't think it's this deck. I feel it's more of a card that would be run in a BR goblin storm build with other cards like Frogtosser Banneret and Goblin Warchief as your cost reducers and cards like Mogg War Marshal , Goblin Instigator , Sling-Gang Lieutenant , and Siege-Gang Commander as pseudo rituals and killing your opponent with Pashalik Mons or Impact Tremors . That being said I do agree that lowering the curve would help. I'm thinking about dropping one Sling-Gang Lieutenant and Goblin Ringleader each and adding in a Stingscourger and Goblin Cratermaker . I also haven't had a chance to play Goblin Trashmaster yet so I don't know if it's on the chopping block yet. But I'll be very conscious of how it plays while testing.

I think Invisible Stalker is much better than Inkfathom Infiltrator because the stalker has a lot more evasión , not being able to be targeted by any burn spell or removal unless it is a Wrath of God , basically it wont die unless you block with it because you're desperate to survive (you cant block with inkfathom infiltrator).
Maybe Frogtosser Banneret ?
You can try cards with changeling .
You may add something for late game that gets bonuses from tribals decks like Door of Destinies , Coat of Arms , Adaptive Automaton , Metallic Mimic , Stoneforge Masterwork (i think this one is the best because most of your creatures are unblockable and is very fast , and if you add Invisible Stalker it is almost impossible to get rid of it , while the infathom will probably die instantly when you equip the artifact to it)
