THE_WTF_Brewer on Maindeck-able Hate for Certain Matchups

3 years ago

I'm having trouble with affinity when using my R/W hatebears deck. The matchup feels like it's 30-70 them, and I want to have a chance at winning, maybe make it 40-60. I'm looking for some maindeck-able hate I can slot in against them. Robots is a really bad matchup because they don't have fetchlands, so my Tunnel Ignus's , Leonin Arbiters, and Aven Mindcensor do nothing but be Grizzly Bears and Goblin Pikers. They are also really, really, really fast, so I stand no chance at trading creatures and winning with a Goblin Rabblemaster. How can I beat affinity? I have Stony Silence in my sideboard alongside Eidolon of Rhetoric, but what about game one and when I don't draw hate? What cards are good against affinity among other decks? I would prefer creatures, but non creature spells are great too because i'm desperate. Any Thoughts? I would also prefer for any suggestions to be under 10 tix on MTGO.

Here is the Decklist:

hmmm. well I suggest taking out Vandalblast and Ruination along with the Adaptive Automaton and Quest for Pure Flame as well as Skullclamp and all special lands, except Nykthos, and add in cards like Battle Hymn, Barrage of Expendables, Lobber Crew, Goblin Chariot, Goblin Piker, maybe Nobilis of War, Goblin Roughrider, Goblin Shortcutter, Krenko's Enforcer, Quest for the Goblin Lord, Goblin Berserker, Goblin Balloon Brigade, maybe Ember Hauler, maybe Goblinslide, Lavastep Raider, Berserkers' Onslaught. trust me on this, I am a goblin master. I know how goblins work and know what does and does not work with them depending on the battle plan they use. from what I see here you want your goblins to multiply like crazy as well a light burn (I can see it from the Impact Tremors and Outpost Siege) so by having goblins that are cheap Krenko will bring out more miniblins (1/1 goblin tokens) faster. I like your strategy of having him hold Umbral Mantle so he untaps himself after bringing out miniblins so you can retap him to get more. very clever. however you should take out Goblin Rabblemaster. with him out you will be forced to attack every turn which would kinda ruin your giant goblin army since most of them they would most likely die.

Mogg War Marshal would serve well in Goblin Piker's place...
