Goblin Lackey Discussion

bmorri9 on Krenko mob boss

you have 6 ramp cards in here, its a little low, so I'd say look at adding: Solemn Simulacrum, Caged Sun, Myriad Landscape and Chandra, Torch of Defiance .

This deck is also lacking card advantage, it will play out all the cards in its hand too quickly and you will not have enough gas to finish off everyone. for that I would look at Solemn Simulacrum and Chandra, Torch of Defiance again, as well as Outpost Siege, Forgotten Cave, Smoldering Crater, Buried Ruin, Mutavault, Ghitu Encampment, and Grenzo, Havoc Raiser.

Other cards to consider:

Boggart Shenanigans, Hazoret's Monument, Metallic Mimic, Goblin Lackey, Warren Instigator, Ogre Battledriver, Hellrider, Adaptive Automaton, Chaos Warp, Reverberate, Fork, Obelisk of Urd,

I highly recommend putting in Mogg War Marshal in place of either Dragon Fodder or Krenko's Command, and just ignore its Echo cost. You'll essentially still be paying two mana for two 1/1 bodies. But by not paying MWM's Echo cost, you'll be saccing him and immediately putting another 1/1 creature into play. Thus, you have extra triggers for Vicious Shadows, Impact Tremors, Boggart Shenanigans, and Purphoros's ability, just at a glance. Also, unlike DF/KC, MWM can be searched for, with Goblin Matron's ability, and cheated into play with Goblin Lackey's ability. One final note: As I type out this recommendation, your deck list currently shows two copies of Goblin Lackey here in your Commander/EDH deck.

I forgot about Purphoros, a little more burn could help. I'll trade out Grave Titan for him, it was only in for the tokens anyway.

Goblin Lackey and Warren Instigator are okay but much better in modern, here its only gonna hit every now and then. I'd be better of with something like Elvish Piper, ya its off theme but its not a strictly tribal deck anyway.

Thanks for the feedback =)

If this is going to be a goblin-themed deck, you should look into getting a copy of Goblin Lackey or Warren Instigator. Purphoros, God of the Forge is an almost must in goblin token decks, as he deals mass damage to all opponents very easily and can boost the team with spare mana, so he should be in the main board. I think Saskia is a good commander, as you probably wouldn't get too much damage off of Vial Smasher the Fierce and would just end up annoying other players into attacking you and there are too many anthem cards for Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa's ability to be super useful.

A decent base here, though I feel like you're missing a fair number of staples for this deck. Here is a list of cards you could try out Siege-Gang Commander, Goblin Chieftain, Goblin King, Goblin Chirurgeon, Goblin Lackey, Warren Instigator, Door of Destinies, Quest for the Goblin Lord, Goblin Ringleader, Patron of the Akki, Cavern of Souls, and Empty the Warrens.

Have you tried Shivan Harvest. It's a pet card of mine in red token decks. Trading a 1/1 for an opponent's land is a great way to set people behind.

Goblin Lackey seems like an obvious missed card.

You should replace Zealous Conscripts with Lightning Crafter for the combo with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. In a low tutor deck like this you almost never get off 2-card combos like Kiki/Zealous. Lightning Crafter works just as well and is tutorable by all your goblin tutors. Also it can pick off creatures for you.

Speaking of goblin tutors, Moggcatcher is worth considering, but might be a little slow here.

You do NOT have enough high cost artifacts to justify Daretti, Scrap Savant, or Scrap Mastery really.

What the hell is Mycosynth Lattice in here for?

If Coat of Arms is worth including than so is Shared Animosity.

Mountainwalk isn't really that relevant, so Goblin King is really just a 3-drop that gives your creatures +1/+1. If there are any goblins you could cut, he's first in line.

Some more ramp and ritual would probably speed this up a bit. Infernal Plunge maybe. Ruby Medallion definitely.

I have a Krenko deck too, and I find Goblin Lackey to be my number one or two search target. I'd highly recommend it.

Stingscourger is another that I find very useful. Gotta love blue abilities in other colors.
