Goblin Bushwhacker Discussion

Ragham on Rakdos 8-Whack

You miss Devastating Summons. I've been playing this deck also in major tournaments, and this combo Summons + Whacker is the main kill of the deck. I would not play less than 3 Summons.

I have also really prefered to play with Mogg Fanatic over Fanatical Firebrand for having more reach, and to put more pressure.

As you splash black, you have a all-indicated companion to play : Lurrus of the Dream-Den.

Your land choice are not the best clearly. I would recommend to play Auntie's Hovel, Blood Crypt and Blackcleave Cliffs alongside basic mountains. For budget issue, replace cliffs by your Unclaimed Territory why not, but do not play Dragonskull Summit because you have many non-mountain lands.

I am unsure about Munitions Expert and Light Up the Stage. The expert is situational and needs conditions, while the sorcery spell is not triggered before combat so it slows down our main plan. Since we play black, I wonder me if a Thoughtseize effect would not be better for not being disrupted in our game plan which allows at our opponent to play. The question would be Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek ?

Finally, I am happy to see no Burning-Tree Emissary as they are bad with Goblin Bushwhacker. In my opinion, they are great when we play Manamorphose to fix mana issue as well as digging for the combo.

In sideboard, I think that you want some Fatal Push to defend yourself against Kor Firewalker etc, Thoughtseize effect against combo, some graveyard answers like Nihil Spellbomb which can be recast with Lurrus, some anti-Chalice of the Void like Smash to Smithereens.

I will start with a list like that : (18 lands) 4 Auntie's hovel, 4 Blood crypt, 4 Blackcleave cliffs, 2 Bloodstained mire, 4 Mountains. // (28 creatures) 4 Goblin guide, 4 Foundry street denizen, 4 Mogg fanatic, 4 SPike jester, 4 Legion loyalist, 8 Bushwhackers. // (14 spells) 4 Lightning bolt, 4 Goblin grenade, 3 Devastating summons, 3 Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize (meta call). // Sideboard: Lurrus of the dream-den, 4 Fatal push, 2 Thoughtseize, 4 Nihil spellbomb, 4 Smash to smithereens.

I hope I would help you fellow goblin ! What do you think about all that ? :)

Hey dude thanks for the feedback! i really like Icon of Ancestrywill add it, the goblin digging of it is really neat...Kaervek's Torch is cool cause the extra 2 mana for counter! add it!...i dont like Stoke the Flames cause if goblins arent being sacĀ“d theyll be attacking :S I do realize that Krenko is gonna have a bullseye in his head so i did put some haste givers like Fervor, Swiftfoot Boots,Goblin Bushwhacker, Goblin Chieftain, Goblin Warchief and Reckless Bushwhacker....i didnt add Lightning Greaves cause of the tag price, its a bit high and im trying to make this deck as cheap as possible!

I've never been so honored. Here are my suggestions:

Cards I love: Last-Ditch Effort is so beautiful, I've never seen this before

Underworld Breach this seems dank

Add: Goblin Bushwhacker - gotta have the whacker

Shared Discovery - 1 mana draw three is too nut

Desperate Ritual/Pyretic Ritual - these are good with the commander

Past in Flames - could be good especially with cost reduction

Siege-Gang Commander - not an instant or sorcery but is dank removal/ makes four gobbos

Goblinslide - could be dank

Mogg Infestation - an incredibly hype card that I've always wanted to play. Boardwipe your opponent or double the number of gobbos you control, both ways are dank

Burn at the Stake - Hype big burn spell

potential cuts:


Clone Legion

Izzet Charm

Rite of Flame

Skirk prospector

Fuel for the Cause


Massive Raid

Stroke of Genius

I feel like you would be best off trying to make this like an 8 whack deck and my recommendation would be to work towards that plan.
Here would be my changes: -1 koth -4 street wraith -4 serum powder -4 infernal plunge +4 Skirk Prospector +4 Goblin Bushwhacker +4 Brightstone Ritual +1 mountain

If you are on a tight budget and can't find get a Goblin Bushwhacker then Reckless Bushwhacker is an easier to find alternative. Big plus for Burning-Tree Emissary, cheap and easy to find. Of course, I would order online from tcgplayer or another website your comfortable with to get the cards that the kind people above mentioned. It shouldn't cost you more than ~$7 if you don't get the ruins.

I'd drop Sunscorched Desert for Ramunap Ruins and Hordeling Outburst for Goblin Bushwhacker, then you can play a fast 8whack goblin deck!

Seems like Goblin Bushwhacker would be a better fit instead of Reckless Bushwhacker , but I'm not sure.

Maybe you could go for a Goblin Bushwhacker strategy in your sideboard for flooding the board. It already works with the goblin generators you have, and is a valid strategy.
