Goblin Offensive Discussion

Gotreck on Fire in the hole

ay.lobo I've changed Goblin Offensive for Magus of the Wheel because having another wheel effect proved to be really strong, but im still thinking about changing Thatcher Revolt for Magus of the Moon because it takes out the value of my land cards like Ancient Tomb or Boseiju, Who Shelters All. So yeah the tokens don't stay on board but at least i deal 6 damage - 9 with impact tremors - 12 with panharmonicon- +3 extra damage if they attack and i could also sacrifice them or use Skullclamp on them for draw or even i could Divergent Transformations 2 of the tokens to get more creatures out or i could use Descent of the Dragons or Mogg Infestation on them.

ay.lobo Hi!. I tought about Goblin Offensive and you are right its really expensive. However, regarding Kuldotha Rebirth the tokens you cast dont get exiled they stay.

So what would you recommend i should include instead of Goblin Offensive?

Evening. I do recommend pulling out Goblin Offensive and Kuldotha Rebirth. For the goblin one, it takes 4 Mana to make 1 goblin, and so forth. It's too slow and takes up too much Mana to be of use. As for the second card, the creatures get exiled after being put out. Unless you have something like Ashnod's Altar out on the field, the creatures won't have a change to stay out on the field to defend or be sacrificed.

I disagree about Gaea's Cradle and Growing Rites of Itlimoc . This deck does not seem to be set up to make a ton of creatures. If you go nuts with Hydra Broodmaster you're either winning the game or getting board-wiped, and either way Cradle isn't going to do anything for you.

There is a version of the Rosheen X-spell deck that could make very good use of Rites/Cradle, but it would be using cards like Gelatinous Genesis, Goblin Offensive, Tempt with Vengeance, Sylvan Offering, Orochi Hatchery, Snake Basket, Tilonalli's Summoner etc. etc. But that wouldn't be a Hydra deck.

Oh and speaking of which, since this is a Hydra deck, I think Lightning Serpent would be another fine cut, especially now that you've added Xenagod and Fires. The Serpent's only advantage over your other Hydras is its built-in haste, which is negated by your haste enablers. And it doesn't even get its counters doubled by Kalonian Hydra!

Sorry for the late post, all! Christmas and working on getting a new job.


Panharmonicon is a fantastic card in decks like this! It can win games, and at the very least generate a lot of value.

I'll check your deck out as soon as I get some time! I'll give you any and all advice I've picked up from over the years with this deck.


No worries, friend! Stop by any time! I wish Mox Ruby was legal! Well, if it was legal and financially affordable, haha.

  1. I thought about Infernal Plunge but if I don't have sac fodder (or if I do, but it's a combo piece) then it becomes a dead card. I'd rather have a little higher CMC, but it works without condition.
  2. I prefer Empty the Warrens over Goblin Offensive because it is more likely to give you a better payoff mana-wise. Especially with a low average CMC for the deck.
  3. As for Goblin Wizard, he used to be in the deck, but having another card at 4 CMC makes it harder to cast the commander. Additionally, he was always countered and really didn't add enough value.

Happy holidays, everyone!

Edit: Disregard the mox suggestion, didn't realize they were banned in EDH.

Also, I'd been considering swapping in Empty the Warrens for Goblin Offensive, have you found the storm effect to be worthwhile? I've been holding off because I'm not sure how many copies it'll create on average as its used. Where as the offensive is just a mana dump that doesn't require multiple spells be played to create 4+ goblins.

goblinguiderevealpls on Can Krenko...?

krenko can be explosive, he was my first commander and i love him to this day, that said, i recently upgraded to Wort, the Raidmother since my krenko deck has been completed and tuned for several years now, and tapping him and winning can bore your playgroup in high doses. i upgraded to wort for the color splash, so that i could run busted cards like Food Chain, Doubling Season, Gaea's Cradle and Craterhoof Behemoth, and personally i would say wort is a strict upgrade in power level, although the spell subtheme makes the deck play a bit different.

i too love goblins, hence my name, but mono red is very restrictive in edh, if i were you i would work towards either Wort, the Raidmother, Grenzo, Dungeon Warden or even Shattergang Brothers, as wort and shattergang can include the above green cards as well as tons of budget green spells, while grenzo and shattergang gain access to powerful, game winning spells like Doomsday, Necropotence, Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor

krenko can still explode but he relies very heavily on enablers such as Thousand-Year Elixir or Hammer of Purphoros to give him haste and untap him multiple times

good luck with your Goblin Offensive :)
