Goblin Chainwhirler Discussion

I have a few questions tho :
- Does only 18 lands hurt a lot ?
- Does Goblin Chainwhirler in the sideboard miss you simetime ? Like as a really good creature ?
- Why Risk Factor only as a two of ? Couldn't you get a 3th copy by dropping just on Shock for example ?
Sorry if my english is bad, not my native langage.

Hry BlueBallsMgee thanks for the suggestions, I'll go through them one at a time and you can tell me what you think. Goblin Chainwhirler sadly I doubt I can get 3 red by turn 3 consistently enough for him. Legion Warboss he always seemed a bit awkward to me outside of very specific decks. Plaguecrafter would be a good sideboard I think but this is more a best of one deck for MTGA atm. Midnight Reaper I thought about it a lot but I felt I had too few creatures to justify his inclusion. Do you disagree? Or do you think the deck would benefit by being more heavily creature focused than it is now? Thanks for the thoughts. I might try and make a more creature focused version in the future and see how it compares.

There's an argument to be had that Goblin Chainwhirler could be a good 3 drop, with a nice body and an effective ability. If you are afriad of the mana hungry cost then Legion Warboss is another consideration. For the side I could see Plaguecrafter to get rid of those pesky walkers or one-of creatures. For the incremental value Midnight Reaper is on the nose. Lots kf options to choose.Just throwing my two cents out there. Hope it helps somewhat.

Thanks Blackgate, I appreciate the feedback. My main difficulty with the deck atm is mana red aggro, so I'm looking into things that might allow me to survive a bit better against threats like Goblin Chainwhirler and Fanatical Firebrand , alongside burn in general. It's hard for me to have any board presence when my rat colonies are constantly at risk of being obliterated in one turn by one ETB effect, so I'm looking into maybe building a green/black deck with Vraska, Golgari Queen to give me an edge with only a few needed on board. Your suggestions I'm definitely going to test out ASAP and see if it helps.

@apohl13, if you're playing in a multiplayer group, then you should be able to leverage the other players' threats to redirect attacks towards them. I've played against a lot of token decks, and typically I can either tutor for an answer with Goblin Matron or Moggcatcher , or I can beat them out by racing to one of my combos.
If you're playing 1v1 or just facing a lot of token aggro, here are some additional protection/hate pieces to help you manage your meta:
Goblin Chainwhirler - one-sided ping effect to remove your opponents' token fliers (assuming they aren't buffed)
Judith, the Scourge Diva - additional pings for all of your sacs
Pentavus - provides fliers of your own
Night Incarnate - board wipe that can be repeatedly called on, though it will kill most of your things too
Hopes that gives you some good ideas!

the combo is great and is very interesting, but I can't play it because (as you said before) the cost of the Goblin Chainwhirler make it difficult to play. But I can try to do another deck that plays this combo!

TheSimikBOat Hi, I like the deck! Have you thought about any Goblin Chainwhirler + Status / Statue Combo? It's a four cmc Plague Wind, which was one of my big draws to play Jund in the new meta. I understand if it's not viable though because of the whirly boi's RRR cost.

I like Goblin Chainwhirler but there is not really a place for him ya, maybe a spot in the side?
