Goblin Bushwhacker Discussion

Smuppy on Gaea's Proliferation Legacy (2015)

11 hours ago

@Guardians Thanks for the card suggestions! The elves in the list I have looked through. The vertical growth factor in all of those elves may end up being necessary, but I worry about the mana cost and where to fit them in. Joraga Warcaller while cheap, requires pumping mana into it and my current setup can yield high results in mana, but takes a good bit of elves on the field to do so and as soon as he's removed, they deflate. I chose to use Goblin Bushwhacker to accomplish something similar with haste as the haste factor is very useful. Collected Company would potentially get around non creature clumps in Glimpse of Nature, at least for potentially a couple more creatures. It doesn't guarantee me any creatures though and it also seems expensive. Still instant speed is always cool. I'm relying on my tutoring cards like Green Sun's Zenith and Living Wish to give me creatures at around the same cost. Even if it's only 1, it's a guaranteed one and one of my choice. Scavenging Ooze looks really useful. Reminds me of the Deathrite Shaman but with vertical growth and he doesn't need to tap! That could be very useful in clearing out some nasty effects lying in the graveyards. I wish he had trample or haste, but I do see his usefulness for certain situations. I like that the Deathrite Shaman is both an elf and that he can do direct damage as well. Scavenging Ooze is one I may consider.

Any thoughts on what to cut to add it in?

Eh, it would be nice ... But I think it's more material for Modern Masters 3. Besides, I think Goblin Standard would become a thing too much in that scenario.

On the other hand, with Landfall coming back and the new shockless shocklands they're printing (enter tapped unless you control two or more basics), it could become less powerful and reprintable. We will see.

I personally hope for a reprint of Inquisition of Kozilek. :P

As for the deck ... Mmm, I would say Goblin Bushwhacker and Goblin Wardriver are your best bets. Tough call, too.

I like your deck, especially the idea to use Burn at the Stake. I'm building a goblin deck myself, and I hadn't thought of that one yet. :)

Some card you may want to consider:

Legion Loyalist: a 1/1 with haste and if you manage to attack with 2 or more creatures, they all get stronger.

Goblin Bushwhacker: a 1/1 with kicker to give your goblins +1/+0 and haste.

Goblin Wardriver: gives all attacking creatures +1/+0.

If you want to splash a colour, black gives you some interesting options:

Frogtosser Banneret: a 1/1 with haste that makes all goblins cheaper. Worth the extra one mana

Earwig Squad: a big goblin that will often cost you only 3 mana and allows you to exile cards from your opponents graveyard. Also great for the sideboard.

Fodder Launch: a goblin sorcery that seems quite powerful and is affected by the Frogtosser Banneret as well.

As for the sideboard, you could add Dreadbore, Rakdos Charm, Kolaghan's Command. Also, Vexing Shusher might come in handy against control decks.

If you're splashing black, you can add Auntie's Hovel to your manabase. If not, you could consider adding Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle or Teetering Peaks.

Things you might want to cut depend on the focus you want to give your deck. Do you want a burn approach? You might want to play less token generators and more burn spells. If you want a more token style approach, you could cut the Lava Spikes and Vexing Devils and try to pump your tokens with Goblin Bushwhacker and Goblin Wardriver.

If you're playing tokens, you might also consider Relentless Assault and Ruthless Invasion.

Anyway, I like your deck. Have you played with it yet? I would be interested to know how it performs :)

Pretty sweet budget deck. I feel like Goblin Bushwhacker should be in here though. That's probably the best red common I've ever seen or played with (besides Lightning Bolt which used to be common). +1 from me.

Great deck! +1 from me. A couple of things that I would suggest though would be to bring down the casting cost of some of your creatures. Mardu Strike Leader is pretty good but honestly I think that you would be better off with some more 1 cast creatures and that it would put more pressure on your opponents. This brings down your mana curve which is a bit high for what the deck is trying to achieve and there are just too many 3 casts. By taking out the 4x Mardu Strike Leader and adding something like Goblin Gaveleer which has great synergy with the Obsidian Battle-Axe or Goblin Bushwhacker which also has benefit for later in the game I think that you will win more matches. I would also suggest putting Ajani Vengeant in the sideboard and working in some Lightning Helix or Boros Charm. Sweet deck though, I really like it!

Its_Johnny_Bravo on Goblins making a comeback?

We've seen somewhat of a buildup to goblins up until this point. Now we're waiting on Battle For Zendikar. Looking at the past, Zendikar was a huge leap for goblins with Goblin Bushwhacker, Goblin Guide,and Warren Instigator which are absolutely some of the best goblins there are. I tend to think goblins may become a viable standard deck especially with the recent Goblin Piledriver reprint. Any thoughts on this?
