Goblin Recruiter 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.

Alright, so I have a few pieces of advice over here. I like Krenko a lot, and the general idea of the deck, but it has quite a few issues. First off, you're running way too many one drops, most of which are pretty bad, while opting out of quite a few excellent ones. The same is true of your two drops as well, to be honest. Creatures like Frenzied Goblin, Raging Goblin, Mudbutton Clanger, and Goblin Shortcutter are just flat out bad. Meanwhile, you're not running some great one drop choices like Foundry Street Denizen, Skirk Prospector, or Goblin Recruiter. EDH is a much slower format, and you cannot run nearly as many one, two, or three drops in it as in other formats. Also, your deck has far too few lands and no mana rocks. Even an aggressive EDH deck should have at least 35 lands and mana rocks total, maybe more. Finally, you just have way too many creatures overall. I'd cut down on the total creatures, especially the lower end of your curve, and add in removal and card-advantage tools, which you have almost none of. Chaos Warp, Outpost Siege, and Lightning Bolt are missing, and on the token generation side, Empty the Warrens.

Wow, that was right there in the direct center and I missed it. That's one big reason why I have Goblin Recruiter as well in the maybeboard. Just haven't gotten around to testing and seeing what works and doesn't work.

Hi!

Welcome on T/O!

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.

Cheers,

PJ

I am noticing a Goblin theme which means you could run a Goblin Recruiter as for more burn fun there's always Warstorm Surge and let us not forget good old Strionic Resonator because triggering twice even if once per turn is still burning. What are your thoughts?

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle can be cut i think. Think over the games you've played, when was the last time you wanted to draw 7 lands, and how often do you need to deal 3 damage to something that you keep a CIPT land in your combo/aggro deck? Another mountain could do well

Goblin Wardriver is this strong enough?

Goblin Gardener not strong enough?

Lightning Crafter this card is another infininte combo with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. have kiki in play, another goblin and a sac outlet. play lightning crafter, champion the random goblin, then have kiki copy the crafter.the token champions kiki, taps to do 3, then you sac the token. Kiki comes back into play untapped and ready to do it again.The cool part about the combo is that you can search it all from Goblin Recruiter.

Breath of Fury is a cool card i've had success with when i had my Krenko deck up and running. you need at least one opponent to have no blockers, a mass haste outlet, one goblin and krenko on the field. enchant the random goblin with Breath of Fury, attack the player with no creatures with just that creature. when it connects and triggers, tap krenko to make 2 tokens, sac the creature with the enchantment and attach to one of the new tokens. repeat until you have a large enough army to kill each player.

Ancient Tomb and City of Traitors speed up krenko

Brightstone Ritual could led to explosive turns

Outpost Siege can serve two purposes, and extra Boggart Shenanigans or "card draw"

Mana Echoes can go infininte with Staff of Domination, Umbral Mantle, Sword of the Paruns or any of the sac a creature get mana things you have and Krenko.

If you're running Ruination I'd take a hard look at the lands you run, and Reliquary Tower and Buried Ruin don't seem nessary for the deck.

also I'm not conviced on Extraplanar Lens, you're not a big mana deck so strip mine'ing a land to get more mana dosen't seem worth it.

Gamble might be something to look into as well. Just be aware that it's a gamble!

Mogg Infestation is interesting, what are you mostly doing with this? Targeting youself with Purphoros, God of the Forge out? Targeting an oppopent with Goblin Sharpshooter out? another 2 card combo you can't tutor for?

Yeah, I like your strategy! I've won games I shouldn't have with Mob Justice and Massive Raid. I have a similar set up in my MOAR GOBLINS!!! deck. If you're interested in getting Krenko more consistently, you can add a Goblin Recruiter or a Goblin Matron. I se them to fetch Zada, Hedron Grinder to buff up ALL of my goblins.

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!
