troyisepic on I shat this Krenko deck out in 20 minutes

2 weeks ago

Sword is broken with krenko, especially like I said with the altar. Krenko with sword +any goblin and the altar creates an infinite combo for infinite 1/1 goblins. You could theoretically win turn 3 with it. Also cards I'd suggest tossing.Sparkmage Apprentice Doesn't help Krenko and the one damage it does when it comes in is inconsequential.Ornithopter It's a free flying blocker at best, but it doesn't offer you any real benefits other than a potential few extra life points that shouldn't matter since you should be faster than anyone else anyway.Forgotten Cave Cycling is awesome, don't get me wrong but you've got much better options than this, Look into a Wheel or something instead.Sure Strike The spell isn't bad, for most decks I'd usually say go for it, but goblins are a swarm tribe. You're looking for lots of tiny bits of damage, one guy doing an extra 3 doesn't do much for you.Collateral Damage There is no reason to run this over Lightning BoltTrial of Zeal You aren't running any Cartouches, this is basically an expensive lightning bolt.There's a few others I think are sub-optimal, but those are the big changes I'd consider making personally. As for ideas on what would be better in their place...Purphoros, God of the Forge costs some $$$, but you'll be dumping goblins all over the place so he can win the game for you on his own, definitely worth the investmentFervor Haste is gonna be important for your goblins, you have some creatures that do it, having something a little harder to get rid of that gives haste is definitely welcome.In the Web of War More haste and now all your goblins are 3/1 when they drop. Definitely a game changerRummaging Goblin Draw is important, and while discard is a pain, goblins have the best discard option ever, Squee, Goblin Nabob he can be a permanent way for you to grow your hand without ever having to actually lose anything important.Goblin Recruiter Red doesn't have a lot of tutors, this guy is great for that AND he's got the ability to pull as many as you want, gotta play him smart though.Goblin Assassin He might hurt you too, but with krenko pumping out buttloads of tokens, it's essentially a boardwipe for everyone except you.

@shrapnel_: Man I wish they'd unban Goblin Recruiter...I miss Food Chain Goblins. It's not like it's stronger than other combo decks that already exist (Omnishow and Reanimator come to mind).

But yeah, this is a more mid-rangey Goblin variant that plays more like Death and Taxes. The weakness is that you don't get nearly as many hate cards or Stoneforge Mystic + Batterskull. The upside is that you have more "free" spells, tutoring, and card advantage.

I'm still missing 3x Rishadan Ports. I'm hoping the price comes down with Iconic Masters and I can pick some up.

if you were not playing modern a Goblin Recruiter would be good

Goblin Chirurgeon It combos with Krenko, Mob Boss Goblin Warchief and Skirk Prospector to make infinite goblins AND mana to play everything in your hand to obliterate your opponent spectacularly, also Goblin Recruiter lets you search for the cards you need for the almighty combo so if he is in the opening hand it's ALMOST guaranteed a victory.

You need the infinite goblin combo! You already have 3/5 pieces you're just missing Lightning Crafter and Goblin Ringleader

how it works:

cast Goblin Recruiter and tutor in this order top to bottom

Goblin Warchief

Goblin Ringleader

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker

Lightning Crafter

Skirk Prospector

(Any other goblin you want to draw with ringleader here)

Play warchief and ringleader, drawing the last 3

Cast Kiki, then cast crafter, with the champion effect on the stack, tap kiki in response to make a token of crafter, champion kiki with the original crafter, and then champion crafter with its token, tap the crafter token for a Lightning Bolt sac the token to prospector, bringing in kiki jiki and crafter untapped, repeat this and you have infinite bolt damage and infinite

me2tal : Goblin Recruiter is banned in tiny leaders. I already have Mogg War Marshal in my maybeboard so I'm planning to add it. Herald’s Horn seems like a nice thing, never seen it before, definitely going to add it.Skirk Drill Sergeant is also something to consider.
Also I think Goblin Bombardment performs better than Boggart Shenanigans.
