Evening, Gotreck. Haha! Well, okay... You've convinced me. I've tested it a bit, and I think I do want to put Goblin Marshal back in. You are right. I'm guaranteed those 4 tokens, and it works well with Panharmonicon and Krenko, Mob Boss. I'm quite honored that you took the time to write why I should change cards. Thank you.

Gotreck on Purphoros, God of Tokens [EDH PRIMER]

ay.lobo i would change it because:

first: You get rid of the +2 devotion making purphoros more difficult to remove.

second: You can sacrifice it the moment it hits the battlefield dealing 10 damage in one turn, 15 if Impact Tremors is in the field or 20 with Panharmonicon.

third: You also get the sacrifice outlet value without getting punished. For example, 1 point of damage with Goblin Bombardment or 2 colorless mana from Ashnod's Altar. In my deck i also include Skirk Prospector which it gives you an insane amount of value, since you can also sacrifce the tokens that Goblin Marshal produce giving you 5 red mana to cast more stuff.

fourth: More goblin sinergy.

Fifth: With Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs people can still pay 3 mana to hit you or they can simply hit you because its not like Propaganda. To me it seems kinda slow since you have to wait for them to attack you to get value out of him because lets be real with an aggro deck like purphoros you deal damage a lot faster than your opponents so you dont really care about them attacking you.

Sorry for the long comment.

RazortoothMtg on Big creatures into little creatures

Mitotic Slime comes to mind. Reef Worm is sorta like that, but in the wrong colors. Abzan Ascendancy/Golgari Germination/Gutter Grime/Requiem Angel are sorta close, Belfry Spirit turns the creature it haunts into a card like that, Brindle Shoat, Tuktuk the Explorer and Doomed Dissenter just get bigger. Liege of the Hollows gives everyone squirrels when it dies. Symbiotic Elf, Symbiotic Beast, and Symbiotic Wurm turn into insects. Chasm Skulker explodes into a pile of squid (wrong colors again tho). Maalfeld Twins breaks apart into 2 zombies, and Mausoleum Guard into 2 spirits. Promise of Bunrei makes one of your dudes explode into spirits. Sporogenesis is kind of a cool card that makes your guys explode into saprolings on death. Sprouting Thrinax is good. Wurmcoil Engine is a popular one.Goblin Marshal/Mogg War Marshal makes goblins when he ETBs and dies. Hallowed Spiritkeeper, Hangarback Walker, and Hooded Hydra all work. Jotun Owl Keeper in blue again. Mongrel Pack is another one, as is Murder Investigation. Theres a whole bunch of "Penumbra" cards from odyssey that all make a black clone of themselves when they die (e.g Penumbra Wurm). Ulvenwald Mysteries turns each dead guy into a clue that it then turns into a soldier.

If I were to make a commander deck around this idea, I would go with a Jund, not Abzan, sacrifice deck led by Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper, or perhaps Shattergang Brothers. In addition to these you have a ton of guys that just make 1 token on death- Seed Guardian, Sifter of Skulls, Pawn of Ulamog, Tukatongue Thallid, Blisterpod, Myr Sire, etc.

I'd take out Goblin Marshal, for starters. Six mana for four power (or twelve mana for 5 power if you want to keep it) is just not worth it.

I personally luvvv goblins in EDH, don't listen to the BS others put out about it! +1 from meee!Here's some cards that come to mind when I look at this deck - not really suggestions - cuz I like it the way it is!Could throw in a Great Furnace and Kuldotha RebirthA Goblin Marshal is always nice with lackey and instigator, it's decent mid game as well.Goblin Pyromancer is a good finisher.Timed right Final Fortune or Last Chance can be great finishers too! Kind of the same goes for cards like Relentless Assault.I've always liked Song of Blood too! It's way underrated.

Hey, I find grenzo list are a lot smoother if you can get the creature count to 45 or 50 just so you aren't turning too many duds and wasting mana. A couple goblins id consider adding are:

Goblin Marshal, Boggart Mob, Goblin Wizard, Goblin Balloon Brigade, Warren Instigator are all I can think of atm.

Also I'm not a huge fan of Teferi's Puzzle Box because I run into nekusar a bit, I run Goblin Charbelcher instead since you can one shot someone after casting Goblin Recruiter and stack the bottom of your library to kill everyone else.

Last thing, Reito Lantern is really slow and mana intensive. I use Patriarch's Bidding and/or Tel-Jilad Stylus instead.

Hope that helps!

Flagellum on Can you feel the ground shake?

Oh, and Feldon of the Third Path can also be good. Note that the tokens are sac'd not exiled so goblins like Mogg War Marshal and Goblin Marshal's dies/EtGY effect still triggers.
