Hey snowfox54119, so I've been playing with this deck for a couple months now, and have really started to get a feel for it. One question I had for you, though, is what is your experience with Goblin Sharpshooter ? I've gotten it out in several games, but each time it seems underwhelming. I'm considering replacing it with an Avalanche Riders . Is there something I'm missing about Sharpshooter? Would I be making a huge mistake to take it out?

Here is how the Goblin Sharpshooter combo works:

  1. Enchant Goblin Sharpshooter with Splintertwin. Sharpshooter is not summoning sick or is haste enabled so it can tap.
  2. Use the ability on Splintertwin to create a copy of Sharpshooter.
  3. We use copy #1 to kill a creature on the board. It can be any creature, even one of our own (besides our Sharpshooters). This causes the original Sharpshooter and copy #1 to untap.
  4. Use the original with Splintertwin to make copy #2.
  5. Use copy #1 to ping 1 damage to any target.
  6. Use copy #2 to ping itself. Copy #2 goes to the graveyard. This causes the original and copy #1 to untap.
  7. We have returned to the same game state as step 4. We have an untapped Goblin Sharpshooter with a Splintertwin on it, and we have copy #1 untapped. We can now loop steps 4-6, causing copy #1 to ping all players to death.

Hey dude, I like your deck - I have a combo primer that might give you some ideas: [cEDH] Krenko Combo [Primer].

Have you thought about including Battle Hymn or Brightstone Ritual for a ton of mana? I also would consider Goblin Sharpshooter and Skirk Prospector as staple goblins.

Hello dude, I have a Krenko list with a primer [cEDH] Krenko Combo [Primer] that you might be able to pull some ideas from.

There are three ways to build Krenko, each more scary than the last. First is a straight tribal build where you stick all your favourite gobbos. The second is a more focussed build where you want cards that synergise. The third is a combo build with control elements. I have been playing Krenko for a few years and my deck evolved over time through these three builds.

You look like your somewhere around 2. I would definitely put in Goblin King , Blood Moon and Goblin Sharpshooter . To fit these in, I would pull Goblin Assassin , Goblin Diplomats and Voracious Dragon .

Happy Krenkin’

I found your deck when i was working on my own Ben-Ben, Akki Hermit build.. (Found the reddit post actually). You went eldrazi heavy, which isnt my build but i still found some stuff that would work for me. I can't believe I didn't consider Dragonmaster Outcast and Claws of Valakut . Im gonna need a bit of a rebuild after looking through this list.

I dont know if you are still working on this build, considering it has been 2 years since it was last updated, but Crawlspace is a must, along with Goblin Sharpshooter (especially if you have Gorgon Flail or Basilisk Collar in play

imho if you intend to go to this route and you have no intention of going Mayael, then I would add in Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Rites of Flourishing , Collective Voyage , Veteran Explorer , Hypergenesis , Magus of the Vineyard , Ghirapur Orrery , Reality Scramble , Sunbird's Invocation , Selvala's Stampede , Gate to the AEther , etc. to be able to play a lot of these cards without getting mana screwed since you won't always draw Mayael and have an obscenely high avg cmc.

I would look into more cards like Goblin Sharpshooter , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Krenko, Mob Boss , Sylvan Library , Combat Celebrant , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , Selvala, Heart of the Wilds , Angel of Condemnation , Ahn-Crop Champion (and various other exert cards)), Elvish Piper , etc.

You could also definitely go for infinite attack phases with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Combat Celebrant , Hellkite Charger + Savage Ventmaw , Godo, Bandit Warlord , Aurelia, the Warleader , etc.

Honorable Mentions: Vernal Equinox , Possibility Storm (trade cheaper creatures in for your larger ones), Oath of Druids , Yisan, the Wanderer Bard , Champion of Rhonas , Sword of the Animist , Sword of Feast and Famine , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Feldon of the Third Path , Heartless Hidetsugu , Stonehewer Giant , etc.

Let me know how the list comes along.
