Goblin Arsonist Discussion

PPS: Goblin Arsonist has the added benefit of being great with Goblin Grenade, compared to the Fanatic.

Looks super fun!

Quick thought on the Beastmaster Ascension suggestion: I use it on my Saproling deck and it's usually quite effective. Thing is, I never cast it T3 - it usually comes out as a finisher on turn 5 or 6 when I already have 7+ creatures ready to attack, not giving the opponent a chance to prepare against it (because as you said, having it sitting there one or more turns without it doing anything is pretty bad!). Whether or not to run it ultimately comes down to how often you find yourself with 7+ creatures already in play, and whether or not at that point the added 28 points of damage would help you win the game or be redundant.

PS: Personally, I like Goblin Arsonist more than Mogg Fanatic, but both have their uses. Perhaps try out a split and see which one you're getting the most out of?

Thank you JrsJams! Goblin Arsonist was just one of the original goblins I had to build the deck around. I'll definitely swap them out for the Mogg Fanatic!

Mogg Fanatic is just a better Goblin Arsonist because you can sacrifice it at instant speed instead of having to wait for it to die, so if an enemy creature has life link you can sacrifice it before combat damage and they won't gain any life.

It would be much more effective if it was rakdos or gruul simply for some more unconditional removal or ramp to get delirium online quickly for gibbering fiend. That being said I think you have a cool concept and could use a little tweaking. Shreds of Sanity is a great way to get cards back into your hand and pairs well with Fiery Temper. Fling might as well be 6 damage if you cast it the same turn as Impetuous Devils. The new rules regarding aftermath cards make Sin Prodder a nightmare. The total cost of both sides is what they have take damage wise if they dont want it in your hand and even then aftermath will get them. If possible a pair of Devils' Playground can be hard to deal with if they resolve since it is 4 Goblin Arsonist

I'm sure this has been answered before but I want to clarify this scenario:

I have attacked with a Avatar of the Resolute, currently with 2 counters on it, making it a 5/4. My opponent blocks with 2 Goblin Arsonist's.

Combat damage is dealt, and as their goblins die they target my avatar with their extra damage effects. I play Quickling from my hand, returning my Avatar to my hand.

One: Is my Avatar dead? I assumed not, which leads to my next and more relevant question.

Two: Can my opponent direct the damage to another target after Quickling is played? They, looking rather frustrated. said they could and then chose to target my face with the 2 extra pings. Doesn't the damage just fizzle with their original target no longer being valid?

If I have 2 Goblin Arsonist then can one attack Player 1 and the other attack Player 2 or do they need to both attack the same thing?

I have a Goblin King and was thinking about putting him in there. as for Goblin Arsonist, I thought about him, but figured the effects from my other 1 drops were a little more beneficial than the 1 damage he inflicts when he dies. I'll have to look into Tormod's Crypt It may be helpful. Thanks for the input!
