Goblin Ringleader Discussion

Boza on Help! Many of the cards ...

The best suggestions are the cards currently sitting in your SB. Steamkins, Krenkos and warbosses are great replacements for the current creatures.

Scorch Spitter , Infuriate , Ember Hauler and the Goblin Ringleader (if go goblin tribal) are great options for a mono-red aggro deck.

Oh no, I have some of these cards but I'm not planning on building this deck at all. It's just what I would play if I were to theoretically make a goblins deck since they made one of my favorite goblins ( Goblin Ringleader ) modern legal. This deck is mostly based off Legacy goblin deck lists.

SynergyBuild, yes, they still can. The current sets allow for that to happen. Not really a legacy staple, but Goblin Ringleader just got reprinted in core set 2020. Force of will got 2 extra printings (not that it helped, since it was a mythic both times). Tarmogoyf is lower now than it has been in the past decade.

I think Food Chain is a perfectly good card to reprint in a core set. As long as something like Squee, the Immortal is not in Standard, Food Chain is perfectly safe.

Force of Will - an alliance card. So, in order to get FOW in this type of product, you need Alliances Remastered. What are the cards people expect from there besides FOW. The next three cards in Alliances are Helm of Obedience , Thawing Glaciers and Lake of the Dead , Kjeldoran Outpost . All three are Reserved list, so a Paper Remastered set will not include them.

In fact, if you exclude FOW and all Reserved list cards, the most expensive card is Lim-Dul's Vault , which is a whooping 7 dollars. Hardly the pack mover. And it was reprinted in Commander 2013. Which means that they can do it again.

Overall, there is no need to remaster sets for a few cards than to simply reprint in existing products.

Goblin Ringleader will be a huge upgrade for modern goblins. Don't you think you can make the manabase work with Blood Moon s in the sideboard?

Have you seen the other interesting new green spoils? This set's just getting started and already they've spoiled some BOMBS. WOTC has been doing a great job getting players hyped by raising the power level and with much-needed reprints, etc (ie. Goblin Ringleader is now in m20 and modern legal, just as modern goblins is already looking like a tier1 deck....they give it the main missing-link from legacy goblins that everyone was afraid of - or dying for). Oh yea, and ALL the leylines are in M20! Hurray! "Protection from" is now back "on a probationary status", lol.

New Green Stuff So Far

Season of Growth, Growth Cycle , and Veil of Summer are all quite interesting. Maybe not quite what we're looking for, but they all COULD fit in the deck. Loaming Shaman seems like a cool card for graveyard hate. Like Collector Ouphe , if the/your meta get out of control with graveyard stuff or artifact stuff you could even maindeck those guys, haha. Could. :)

Thanks for chipping in some info JKRice! So I've actually debated multiple times on the idea of Skirk Prospector in the deck, and while I think that it's a very good card and definitely has a place in a goblins deck in modern, I don't think it's this deck. I feel it's more of a card that would be run in a BR goblin storm build with other cards like Frogtosser Banneret and Goblin Warchief as your cost reducers and cards like Mogg War Marshal , Goblin Instigator , Sling-Gang Lieutenant , and Siege-Gang Commander as pseudo rituals and killing your opponent with Pashalik Mons or Impact Tremors . That being said I do agree that lowering the curve would help. I'm thinking about dropping one Sling-Gang Lieutenant and Goblin Ringleader each and adding in a Stingscourger and Goblin Cratermaker . I also haven't had a chance to play Goblin Trashmaster yet so I don't know if it's on the chopping block yet. But I'll be very conscious of how it plays while testing.

Thanks for the upvote and commenting barnii! Yes, Unearth seems very good in this deck. However, Goblin Ringleader was just spoiler for M20, so I‘d probably rather have as many goblins as possible!

Hey my friend ! I'm a tribal player too and I find your deck really nice !

Do you know how many cards you'll draw on average with Goblin Ringleader ? I have tried a long time ago Tidal Courier for my competitive Merfolk duel commander deck. I found that for a 4 CMC this card was pretty bad and I got approximately the same amount of merfolks in my deck than goblins you have in yours. Maybe it is because blue has other best way to draw cards... Whatever. It is probably your highest converted mana cost card and I'm not sure you'll get as much value as you want from it. A wheel would probably be better :)

What about the new Pashalik Mons or even Goblin War Party ? Are you planning to try it ?

Can you tell us a bit about which kind of decks your struggling against ?

I got kicked few months ago by a Krenko player playing quiet some rocks ( Fire Diamond , Mind Stone , even Mana Echoes ...). Have you tried a more heavy curve ?

Have you try Shared Animosity ?

I stop bothering you there :p ; if you like tribal decks in duel commander feel free to check my fishy stuff ! Have a nice day
