Goblin Matron Discussion

Alkadron on Ib Halfheart, Goblin Sac-tician [PRIMER]

I almost prefer the Pyromancer over the Shared Animosity, for my deck at any rate. I mean, I definitely run both, but I get more use out of the Pyromancer. It can get Moggcatchered, Goblin Matroned, and Goblin Recruitered, and it can get sacrificed. Animosity can't.

Even when I can't sacrifice the Pyromancer, I usually just let all my goblins die. Stalking Vengeance is silly. Again, though, my version of the deck is much more suicide-y; I'm in it strictly for catastrophic explosions and chuckles, not to have a board presence or win games or anything. I agree with you that the Pyromancer doesn't really have a place in a good deck.

I think it got lost in my comment, but you really do need a copy of Goblin Matron here to find Bazaar Trader :)

After looking at your list I came up with these suggestions you should really consider:

If you would like to see other EDH decks, you can always check the ones I play which are present on my profile page. I like to play with THIS deck the most of the time. An upvote is always nice to recieve :)

Have fun on T/O and if you ever need EDH advise, you can always summon me. Glad to help you out.

Hello. I've been playing Feldon for 2 years. Here is my list: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/feldon-v3/

I'll name some cards that you aren't running that I think are invaluable.
Keldon Firebombers, Sandstone Oracle, Pathrazer of Ulamog, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, Scrap Mastery, Goblin Matron,Spine of Ish Sah, Codex Shredder, Anger, Avalanche Riders, Solemn Simulacrum, Anvil of Bogardan, Wild Guess, and Cathartic Reunion.

Keldon Firebombers has been helpful against decks that ramp really hard with land. Sandstone Oracle is amazing against any refined deck. Pathrazer of Ulamog just wins the game (I've got him out on turn 4, GG). Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer is very helpful against decks with a lot of artifact removal. Scrap Mastery saves you after someone wipes the board of artifacts. Goblin Welder is found by Goblin Matron, which is insane since Welder is very powerful in a Feldon deck and especially in my list since I run Spine of Ish Sah. Spine of Ish Sah is easy to recur, get out quickly, and is unconditional removal. Codex Shredder basically is repeatable card draw in a feldon deck. Anger helps you play around instant speed removal (no more removal in response to greaves, you still get to activate feldon anyways). Avalanche Riders blows up annoying lands. Solemn Simulacrum ramps you up and draws cards (he's great after Keldon Firebombers ETB trigger). Anvil of Bogardan is a great way to get fatties in your yard. Wild Guess is a great and quick way to enable feldon. Ditto with Cathartic Reunion.

Hmmm. This deck is jank AF...but I'm always on board with jank!

cracks knuckles Let's get this show on the road.

You said you're having trouble finding your combo. The only unconditional tutor in red is Gamble, unless you want to play high-cost artifacts like Ring of Three Wishes or Planar Portal. But since your Bazaar Trader can do the same job, Goblin Matron can find him. If your playgroup plays the Wishes as first intended, you can also use Burning Wish to find a Harmless Offering from outside of the game.

This deck could happily embrace Vow of Lightning to keep Hazoret from whacking you. Confusion in the Ranks could also be a very good card here, since Hazoret the Fervent has haste and thus is a prime target to be stolen by everyone.

Have you considered Worldslayer to equip to Hazoret when you control her? You could also use some more removal (particularly Chaos Warp and Blasphemous Act) to remove those pesky Peacekeepers (which get in the way of your fun!).

As cute as Sword of the Ages is, I feel like Fling might fit your purposes better here. Also, Repercussion is a must when you can hit your opponents with cards like Nahiri's Wrath :D

What's with the fetches here? You don't have any library-manipulation effects and you're in mono-colors.

Deck looks entertainingly unique :) You certainly get my +1, lol.

Few changes to tighten up the deck some more.

Goblin Offensive out for Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker: Offensive was great when I had a huge proc of Mana Echoes, but when I didn't have then (almost always) it was just a very inefficient token spell that I never used. Kiki-Jiki will be able to clone all those token generating creatures, and the powerful creatures with ETB effects like Goblin Matron. Only 6 of my creatures can't be copied by him, and most of those would be less useful with a copy anyway.

Slate of Ancestry out for Farsight Mask: This is an experimental change, but should result in more consistent draw without making me discard a lot like slate is currently doing. I just don't have enough red mana to keep with it. At worst it discourages players from attacking me, which also helps.

Altar of the Brood out for Illusionist's Bracers: Although Altar is very, very strong in this deck, it also got me an huge amount of hate. If I had more mill mechanics I might keep it, but until then it is sideboarded. I never thought to add the Bracers to this deck because I mistakenly thought that Rings of Brighthearth was strictly better. Once I finally read Bracers I couldn't believe I was missing out on double procs on both of Ib's abilities, or being able to throw them on Burnished Hart, Goblin Chirurgeon, Goblin Welder, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Krenko, Mob Boss, Mogg Catcher, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Sensation Gorger (althought I'm not sure if it would net you 8 cards for one discarded hand?), or Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer. Put Bracers on all the things!

Hoarding Dragon out for Sensation Gorger: While I would love to be able to consistently tutor out Crucible of Worlds or another powerful artifact, this dragon is just too expensive and too slow. I also can't guarantee that I would be able to get rid of him to get the artifact in hand, and then I still have to cast it. Instead, I am going to go with Sensation Gorger to increase the already improving card draw.

Goblin Warrens out for Goblin Matron: This was a hard card, and maybe not a permanent one, but now that I am replacing some effects with their "On A Stick" goblin variant, I need to better be able to tutor them. I also have multiple ways to copy this ETB effect, which is great.

Voracious Dragon out for Expedition Map: Not a straight trade in any regard, I just realized that the dragon better be used as a finisher, or else it can be pretty counter-intuitive to the rest of the deck. My meta is also very flyer heavy, so it was easy for that huge flyer to be chump blocked by my opponents. Being able to fetch a Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, Cavern of Souls for a Krenko cast, a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for more ramp, or a Strip Mine is really nice. Plus I can recur the Map fairly easily.

I am still trying to find space, or determine the necessity of, the cards in the sideboard.

As always, looking for any comments, criticisms, or unique card interactions that I may not have considered!

No Illusionist's Bracers seems odd. If you control 8 Goblins when you activate Krenko, having Bracers attached gets you 8 + 16 more goblins, doubling your output.

You also most likely want Shared Animosity and Marton Stromgald.

Thornbite Staff may be worth a look as a second copy of Umbral Mantle/Sword of the Paruns (with Skirk Prospector or Ashnod's Altar, Clickslither, you get infinite tokens using it as well if you have Krenko out).

No Goblin Matron seems like a very bad call. She's better than most of the creatures in this deck, for sure (also makes finding Skirk Prospector for the infinite combo win easier, so there's that).

Ideas of things to cut: Bubbling Cauldron seems mediocre; I'd drop it for the Bracers, being honest. You most likely don't need lifegain in increments of 4. Pyromancer's Gauntlet also seems pretty poor. It works with a fair number of cards, but 2 extra damage is almost entirely not worth running a 5 mana artifact. Staff of the Flame Magus seems poor as well. You don't need to gain life, you need to kill your opponents as quickly as possible.

I would also cut high cost cards (like Akroma's Memorial) that will be stuck in your hands in favor of more hate directed at higher tiers decks (since this wants to be as competitive as it possibly can).

That means I would include:
