Goblin Lore Discussion

I was thinking about you sideboard and had some thoughts. First off, Leyline of Sanctity. i know it sits at around 30 dollars but it just helps beat burn. Lightning Bolt is just not fun. Next, Path to Exile. I know I have already brought this up but 1 White to exile good ol' Wurmcoil Engine or Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger is just too good (plus it is sitting at around 7 dollars market on tcgplayer). Maybe Rest in Peace with the new modern flavor that uses Hollow One and Goblin Lore? Just some cards to think about.

I find that often times, my deck is looking to sculpt its hand very early in the game, and it doesn't necessarily have to be controlled discard, hence the usage of cards such as Gamble and Goblin Lore. I find that the sheer amount of redundancy, tutors and hate pieces within the deck often allows for me to set up a very explosive burst of discard early, then play a game of top-decks against an entire table thanks to the attrition offered from Mogis, God of Slaughter and the large variety of creature hate and oppression present. This can, on occasion lead to very mulligan-heavy games, going down to 4-5 cards in hand is not unreasonable if everything you look at has no form of acceleration, a tutor, and/or a looting effect.

I am currently debating cutting Possibility Storm in favor of Mindslicer to further increase my access to very explosive discard in the early turns of the game, and push for a greater number of the before-mentioned hellbent archenemy scenarios.

The lack of enchantment removal is a very meta decision, I won't lie. Often times, if a threat comes down I can find comfort that one of the many green or white decks in my area will remove that from the board for me. Chaos Warp is usually enough. I opted for much heavier creature and artifact interaction in order to more consistently oppress the large amount of mid-range and combo decks in my area, which rely much heavier upon Planeswalkers, Creatures, and Artifacts.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers are definitly some of the next on the list of acquisitions for the deck, I just plan on foiling this deck as completely as card printings shall allow me to, so I have not yet purchased them. I have several masterpieces in the deck, and have very few changes actually planned for the deck at this time beyond wanting better, more explosive Mana, Liliana of the Veil and Angrath, the Flame-Chained (who is likely too expensive at 5 cmc, but I wanna test him)

Thank you very much for the input, I am glad that you enjoyed the list, and could kinda validate the thoughts I definitely had for the deck already.

Xica Thanks for all of your insight. I saw a mild synergy between Bomat Courier and One with Nothing as a way of discarding 2-3 cards and then "drawing" 2-4 cards. This a feeble attempt at budgeting Goblin Lore.

To your point about Street Wraith, it seems to have taken a steep drop with the A25 reprinting. I have added it to the deck list in place of One with Nothing.

Abrade is a great suggestion!

Not sure what you mean about Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip?? When creatures get hit with removal Flameblade Adept or if I sac Bomat Courier, Lili  Flip flips and I can re-animate them. I do like the synergies with Jaya Ballard, Task Mage. I might swap Lili for Jaya or even split them 1/1.

Would Relic be better than Ratchet Bomb?

No Goblin Lore?

Always have 2x Mogis, God of Slaughter with Avatar/Demigod deck. Axe the 2 Diregraf Colossus. Also, it's not a grave fill with only a playset of Faithless Looting and 2 Avatar of Discord. Either opt for more Avatars or Goblin Lore instead of Invigorated Rampage.

Hey Darth_Savage,

Thanks for linking me to you deck list! After looking over the contents, I've decided to make some big changes to this deck. I went with some of the more luck oriented discard cards like Burning Inquiry and Goblin Lore (seeing how much better they are with Hollow One and Flameblade Adept) and it's amazing how quickly this deck plays now.

zambasss, I cloned your deck as I've been messing around with something similar, with a few differences.

  1. Goblin Lore replaced with Zombie Infestation, this one is budget, I just don't have the Lores
  2. Gurmag Angler replaced with Nim Devourer, I've always had a soft spot for the Nim but in this case it can recur itself and will still triggers Ferocious
  3. Lastly Traitor's Clutch instead of Fiery Temper and Call to the Netherworld, granting evasion and we want to discard it

I'm still tweaking things but maybe this gives you a few extra ideas, least I can do since cloning your deck saved me a bunch of typing :)

Not the biggest fan of Liliana's Caress personally; between you dumping Hollow Ones onto the fields and all of the fringe benefits you're gonna get out of Waste Not, this deck might be fast enough to where another two-mana enchantment isn't needed. Some ideas for replacements could be Reforge the Soul or Wrench Mind if you like getting Waste Not triggers, or if you want more enablers for Hollow One , Goblin Lore is a very amusing card in general.

If you're uncertain about Bloodghast, there's a ton of options open for replacements. Delve creatures like Gurmie and Tasigur are great ways to get extra mileage out of your discards, while Street Wraith can help you draw into your action quicker.

The Moons and Bolts definitely belong in your sideboard, and I'd recommend Leyline of the Void personally over Surgical as a more blanket answer to stuff like Dredge and Storm.

Either way, Hollow One is just a fun archetype in general to play and watch, and Waste Not is an excellent compliment for it. Hope I helped out some respect!
