Goblin Welder Discussion
2 days ago
I find it a great play in a deck that can use the yard. Goblin Welder and friends make it worth it.
Also it is great in fast-paced combo.

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle out for Darksteel Citadel. I really, really wanted Valakut to be impactful, but honestly entering the battlefield tapped hurt me more often than the damage I could do with it helped, which was just too rare to justify it.
I don't know of any land that taps for red that is a better fit, but if I can find a better colorless land I may switch the Citadel out for it. This one at least gets me sac targets for Goblin Welder and Daretti, Scrap Savant, as well as buffing my artifact count for Mox Opal, plus the bonus Indestructible.

Some more good ways to make artifacts cheaper is Cloud Key, which itself is of course an artifact, and Grand Architect, who can turn any of your artifact creatures into Sol Rings. You might also like to find room for Inventors' Fair - it's pricey, but having another tutor built into a land can come in handy.
Also, are you sure about Slobad? I know he's Historic and all, and he fits the theme, but he always seemed a very underwhelming card to me. Even without the free card draw from Jhoira, I think you'd have a lot more success replacing him with Goblin Welder.

Thank you very much for your valuable suggestions. I need to think seriously about them. The idea with tokens seems cool and worth trying. Also Goblin Welder becomes much better with Genesis Chamber, so I will give them a chance. Probably I will try Caltrops with Sydri, Galvanic Genius and Revel in Riches.
Thank you once for your ideas!

I really dislike Aerial Modification: paying 5 mana just to make one of your vehicles a creature and buff it a tad just feels very weak to me. In addition, you seem to have 2 Reliquary Towers in your deck.
I feel like the deck is a bit lacking in ramp, especially since you can sink mana into your commander's ability to refuel after you empty your hand. A few more 2-cmc rocks would probably be a good idea, and there's also Myriad Landscape, which gives you ramp in a land slot.
You seem to be missing what is (in my opinion) the best dwarf of them all: Duergar Hedge-Mage. Artifacts and enchantments are some of the most powerful cards in EDH, and it can destroy both. And just after I finished typing out that sentence, I found a better dwarf: Mirror Entity. Since you should have a bunch of mana anyways to sink into Depala, you should be able to pump up your team a ton with it.
Lastly, I'm not sure how heavily you want to commit to the dwarf theme, but there are some powerful non-dwarves that can support the strategy very well. Goblin Welder can help recur some of your powerful vehicles that got killed. Iroas, God of Victory gives your team menace and stops them from dying to blockers. Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer should pretty much always give your team a huge buff from metalcraft.

I have a copy of Goblin Chirurgeon and it worked really well in my Krenko, Mob Boss version of the deck. I didn't include it here, Paranoiac, because i wasn't sure it had the same impact: Krenko, Mob Boss is a goblin and that extra protection was really nice, but with Purphoros, God of the Forge already being really resilient i don't see a good use for it.
The thing is: after a couple of games i realised that one really cool aspect of this deck is that it does not care about board presence (most of the time) so board wipes dont affect me so much. I have great utility goblins like Goblin Welder but not many creatures actually worth fighting for it's survivability.

soldier1030 that could be interesting, it has really good synergy with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Feldon of the Third Path and Goblin Welder. I'll throw it on the maybeboard and if I get one I'll find a spot for it somewhere.
The 1 downside is that it's a "dies" trigger and not an "enter" trigger, but I think it could be pretty good.
