You'll definitely want the curve to be lower if you want to compete with fast combo decks like Jeskai Ascendancy and mid range decks like Junk or Collected Company + Melira, Sylvok Outcast. I'd suggest to remove some combination of Krenko, Mob Bosses, Goblin Rabblemasters, Hellriders, Shared Animosity and Goblin King/Chieftans. They're all valid cards, but you don't need thirteen 3/4 CMC bombs. I'd suggest to take out at least four of these win cons and replace them with Goblin Bushwhackers. They are absolutely brutal if you have a few creatures out already and you kick them, and they are very cheap. Also, Goblin Guide is a definite four-of. A lot of other goblin players that I've talked to dislike the goblin token cards like Hordeling Outburst and Dragon Fodder. They're just a little bit too slow since they can't have an impact until at LEAST turn 3.

I don't mean to say my way is the only way, but here's a few of my favorite cards that I would use instead of your 3/4 drops. Take them or leave them, this is just food for thought: Goblin Bushwhacker, Spike Jester, Signal Pest, and Tattermunge Maniac.

TheDuggernaugh; Ranger of Eos is better off in other decks; the only 1 cmc drop here is not justified to play with ranger of Eos. Also, he doesn't give any trigger boost to the allies.

Goblin Bushwhacker is also redundant for the same reason. He may be a psuedo-Akoum Battlesinger, but I rather have another Akoum Battlesinger or ally. Note that all allies trigger each other.. so I other non-allies in the deck are near redundant.

I would agree that Collected Company is probably better than Join the Ranks. But, effectively, they do the same thing in the same deck; one being having actual non-token creatures and another just tokens to give the ETB trigger.

Collected Company is probably better than Join the Ranks. Ranger of Eos and Goblin Bushwhacker are also good options. Ranger fetches almost any 2 creatures and bushwhacker can be a huge swing and is another psuedo-Akoum Battlesinger that gives haste to all your creatures.

KIngWiggins on W: Specific Cards for Decks, ...

I know this is a lot of random things but I thought I would post my top priorities in one place to see if people look. I am building 3 decks currently: a Naya Enchantment EDH, a tribal Dragon EDH, and a Goblin Modern deck. I am also helping someone put together an Orzhov EDH deck. If possible, I'd like to get cards for multiple decks at once, but would settle for otherwise if the cards are right. I know there are a lot of cards, but I just wanted to keep options open as well. Some of the cards listed are only wanted from certain sets (will be marked with ~), but most others are flexible.

Naya Deck:
Spirit Mantle
Bear Umbra
Qasali Pridemage
Saffi Eriksdotter

Dragon Deck:
~ Graven Cairns
~ Thran Dynamo
Bladewing the Risen
Hellkite Overlord (Either of the Foils)
~ Forbidden Orchard
Gemstone Caverns
Ancient Ziggurat
Quicksilver Amulet

Goblin Deck:
4x Foundry Street Denizen
4x Goblin Bushwhacker
3x Goblin Chieftain
2x Legion Loyalist
4x Mogg War Marshal
4x Goblin Grenade
4x Krenko's Command
2x Thunderous Wrath

Orzhov Deck:
Teysa, Orzhov Scion
Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts
Guul Draz Assassin
Weathered Wayfarer
Karmic Guide
Karmic Justice
Grave Pact (Would prefer 8th edition)
Debtors' Knell
~ Sorin, Lord of Innistrad
~ Avatar of Woe
Shizo, Death's Storehouse
Caves of Koilos
Temple of Silence
Isolated Chapel
Vault of the Archangel
and other Orzhov/b/w lands

There are others but this is where I would like to start

I'm really not sure Angel's Grace is good in this deck. It's dead draw most of the time, which is bad for Ensnaring Bridge.

I've been busy the past few days, so I've only been able to playtest three matches.

The first one, against goblins, was a wreck till I managed to find Ghostly Prison. I wasn't sure about keeping the two in the sideboard, but after that performance, I think it'll stay. Game two, he was too fast with two Goblin Guides, a Goblin Bushwhacker, Goblin Chieftain, and Goblin Rabblemaster turn four. Game three was just like game one.

The next match was Slippery Bogle. After a really oppressive board state with two Ghostly Prisons, Isochron Scepter with Silence imprinted, and Ensnaring Bridge, he managed to snatch the win because I didn't dig up a planeswalker before he found his artifact destruction. I went 0-2 with not much interesting going on im the other game.

A match against a creature light infect deck went great. Both games, I got a burn spell attached to Isochron Scepter and rode Magma Jet and Pyroclasm to the win.

shadow63 thanks for the input! I think you were referring to Mardu Scout, who is really good, but I think that Goblin Bushwhacker currently works better in this deck, considering it gives all of your creatures haste and +1/0 until end of turn when it's kicked. I'm so on the fence about adding burn in right now...I just don't really know which one would be the most comprehensive. I'll have to do more research. I think the main thing is to get rid of Searing Spear.
