Goblin War Drums Discussion

VesuvanDoppelbanger on Warrior at heart

Hi! Since you're battle plan is to slam, bam, and jam, how about a Predatory Focus? Slip all that jazz right through and double up. Damn, I love Saskia. She is out of control.

Insult / Injury is a Fog-proof multiplier that ends games.

The undersung Goblin War Drums will get your stuff through more often than not.

Until your next brew...+1 and done. <-- I'm pretending that's my tagline right now. There is beer invovled.

I think there are some more obscure bulk rares that could work for some mardu vampire builds. Path of Bravery is a decent choice for decks that want to keep the lifegain substrategy, but are mostly focused on going wide with Edgar. Similar rush decks could benefit from Goblin War Drums (also known as diet Iroas, God of Victory) and Whip of Erebos. I'll post more fringe cards here if I learn about them.

Qolorful I'll see if I can get another Anguished Unmaking for this deck. Love the flavor points. Funny thing is, it and Vindicate (the EMA one) are in the same deck haha. I may cut them in favor of more cheaper removal as that deck will eventually have Ad Nauseam.

CChaos I'll consider Goblin War Drums, I dunno how good Menace is in this deck atm, testing will suffice though.

Laochorn I should maybe actually add those in, the changeling ability is something I haven't considered. Mirror Entity is a win condition in this deck.

Thanks for all the advice and upvotes everyone!

One card I look forward to adding to my deck when I get it is Goblin War Drums, i know it lacks flavor but this addition is for the synergy of aggro.

  • You definitely don't have enough artifacts for Daretti, and the filtering isn't really that great in a deck that's not very graveyard focused.

  • Browbeat is bad. Never give your opponent choices. If you're in a position where you want to draw three cards, then 5 mana isn't going to help you very much. Your opponents will be able to figure out which option is worse for you and act accordingly.

  • Staff of Domination and Umbral Mantle don't go well with Neheb, and Metalworker is the only creature they combo with. I'd take them out. Mono-red has so little tutor power that two card combos almost never go off, and these two are mostly dead cards by themselves.

  • Basalt Monolith is a pretty meh mana rock when you're not trying to combo with it. I'd replace with Coalition Relic

  • I feel this deck is kind of remiss without Heartless Hidetsugu. He's going to make more mana than anything else really.

  • With all the attacking and tap effects going on here you could probably do with more haste. Fervor and Hammer of Purphoros are simple and effective.

  • There's easier ways to keep creatures from blocking than War Cadence. Bedlam comes to mind, or Goblin War Drums.

  • You could use more X spells to dump all of your mana into. Commune with Lava would be my first pick, and Tempt with Vengeance could be a win if you have an extra combat lined up. Fanning the Flames could also be neat, as you kill a player and then put it back in your hand to kill another. A bit more of a crazy idea would be Indomitable Creativity. You have a high instant and sorcery count and a relatively small pool of artifacts and creatures, so it's not unreasonable to expect to hit one of your combos if you exile a bunch of your own stuff. Whatever you pick, I would NOT go with Molten Disaster. Split second is neat, but you can only win with it if you're at the highest life total (You won't be, aggro decks get ganged up on for that reason.), and the odds that you're going to want it as a board sweep when you're the aggressor are slim.

I am not particularly interested in either goblins or merfolk, so I am not interested in this set, but I do hope for some good reprints. I believe that it is safe to presume that Lord of Atlantis, Goblin King, Goblin Warchief, Goblin Chieftain, and/or Goblin War Drums will be in this set, and Master of Waves would be very nice, as well. I shall predict that the "face cards" shall be Talrand, Sky Summoner and Krenko, Mob Boss, because they are two of the best representatives of their respective creature types.
