Goblin Sharpshooter Discussion

Epicurus on Card creation challenge

2 weeks ago

Well, I personally believe that Goblin Sharpshooter is the timmiest timmy that ever timmed, and nothing could ever really out-tim that, but here's a shot...

Resurgent Alchemist

Creature - Human Wizard

~ doesn't untap during your untap step

Whenever you cast a noncreature spell, untap ~

: ~ deals 1 damage to any target


I also had a ninja'd response to the previous challenge:

Sower of Disbelief

Creature - Human

Permanents your opponents control do not count towards devotion to any color

All gods in play get -x/-x, where x is half your devotion to black, rounded down

Hosing the gods with that one.

I'd like a zombie that propagates, the way that Chronozoa does. Not necessarily with fading, though that would work too.

We have an idea for a few other infinite combo's in your deck (we incorporated these in our Purph-deck) that you can create by adding Thornbite Staff to the deck:

Prossh is not cEDH tuned, and is beatable as long as I have an answer for food chain. The only real problem in meren is Gray Merchant of Asphodel , if he starts chaining that out a bunch it becomes a rough game. Otherwise I outpace it and usually come out ahead. Linvala is always the problem. The entire deck is designed to be anti kamahl. All I can do is time my removal and hope I get some help taking him out.

Living plane is a great card and I've thought about getting a copy for other decks(paired with Goblin Sharpshooter is hilarious), the big reason I don't run it in kamahl is because if someone board wipes and I dont have krosan Grip in my hand to destroy it in response, Then I'm hosed.

nataku Agreed. They do work with other creatures such as Moggcatcher (which I need to purchase and add) Goblin Sharpshooter and Rummaging Goblin . For that they might be worth running at the risk of a dead draw.

Had Heartstone in a one point to reduce Pashalik's cost. However it's symmetrical and only a few creatures benefit.

Goblin Sharpshooter is often mentioned as a combo with Archetype of Finality , and even though it upgrades your creatures into deathtouchers, it's still a pretty lackluster static effect.

Is there anything else (especially creatures) that can really exploit Archetype of Finality in Rakdos?

Adding Thornbite Staff has the potential to create two infinite combo's for this deck.

1) Thornbite Staff + Krenko, Mob Boss + Goblin Bombardment: Equip Staff to Krenko. Generate a Goblin with Krenko, sacrifice the Goblin to Goblin Bombardment and deal 1 damage to an opponent. Krenko untaps due to the Goblin's death. Rinse and repeat.

2) Thornbite Staff + Krenko, Mob Boss + Phyrexian Altar: Equip Staff to Krenko. Generate a Goblin with Krenko, sacrifice the Goblin to Phyrexian Altar to generate . Krenko untaps due to Goblin's death. Rinse and repeat. Results in infinite .

Next to Staff's use in these combos, it is also rather frustrating for opponents if whenever a creature gets killed off, Krenko is able to untap, which allows you to keep flooding the board with gobbo's even during your opponents' turns.

Also, Staff is funny in combination with Goblin Sharpshooter and Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker : Equip the Staff to Kiki to make it work. Use Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker to copy Goblin Sharpshooter. The original shoots a player for one damage, the copy shoots itself. The copy dies, thereby untapping both the original Goblin Sharpshooter and Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. Rinse and repeat to kill off everybody.

I honestly don't think you should use those XCMC burnspels because Niv daddy already makes shitloads of damage, i haven't try the orientation that you are picking but i found quite easy to get the wheel going with tons of Pyretic Ritual s alongside with the Goblin Electromancer s effect so, for that, i replaced the U CMC spells such as Opt with the rituals, because i draw a card and generate mana at the same time on one side and are quite redundant with Niv's ability and you don't get the electromancer's 1 mana discount on the other side. What i already said can be discussed but what cannot be is the absence of the following cards:

Basilisk Collar & Gorgon Flail : equipped with Niv dady or Goblin Sharpshooter you can kill almost any creature on the field Grafted Exoskeleton : you can equip this to a Guttersnipe type of card (including Niv daddy) and you can almost kill al the opponents in one turn (with powerfull cards such as High Tide Firebrand Archer & Thermo-Alchemist : with those you can draw A LOT OF CARDS alongside with Curiosity and allows you to not only save it for the time you wanna combo out with Niv daddy.

Also you will want to get all of those 2 CMC mana artifacts that give U/R as possible because this deck is so mana-color-intensive (begining with Niv).

I have other suggestions but i dont quite have the time nor i remember the name of the cards. Awesome deck and i take note of some of your interesting picks such as Torbran, Thane of Red Fell among others.

RylandL on Competitive Marath (GRW, Naya combo)

Goblin Sharpshooter enchanted with Splinter Twin is also an infinite kill on the spot. People don't believe me, but I did it once. You tap the original to make a token, use the token to ping a mana dork of your own or an opponents. Both untap. Use the original to make a a third token. Use the second token to deal 1 damage to an opponent. Use the third token to ping itself and kill it, un tapping the other two. Rinse and repeat. :) lol

I've also updated my list. Hulk isn't too reliable in Marath. Not enough sac outlets, or even cadd advantage in Naya. So I went another route. I instead tried to focus the deck around creating infinite mana using creatures, and just adding in more creature tutors. Most notably, Yisan. I also realized that Faeburrow Elder is a great card in Marath, and can be double versed in with Yisan which is good.
