Hellrider Discussion

Pethrax on Say goodbye, as we dance with the devil tonight...

First, I love the theme. I have always loved the flavor Devils have had in MTG, and I'm glad you found something to make it work.

Second, some suggestions. 20 lands means playing with a lower curve. Artillerize is a no go. Swap that sucker for Fling. With the exception of Rakdos Cackler and Hellrider (who you wouldn't want to fling anyways) Fling does an equal or better job. It allows you to Impetuous Devils AND Fling in the same turn in case the opponent has a pinger or some form of removal.

Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded. Flavor yes, useable, no. This planeswalker is meant for a longhaul, not a quick RDW like you are building. Shared Animosity however is DOPE with all the devilish flavor you've packed in. Definitely swap these two around, and if I may, make it a two of and cut 1 copy of Curse of Stalked Prey, which is really only good on the early setup turns.

Your deck is a little top heavy, Id suggest some changes along the lines of:

  1. Rakdos, Lord of Riots is likely to be more relevant than Ob Nixilis, Unshackled simply because it is cheaper to play.

  2. Hellspark Elemental is a better option than Gibbering Fiend unless you are going for devil/demon tribal, but then Torch Fiend has more utility.

  3. Indulgent Tormentor is cool but very easy to remove, instead I'd suggest 1 more Desecration Demon and 2 of either Master of Cruelties, Hellrider or Bedlam Reveler.

Mainboard it would be nice to find space for Sin Prodder and Dash Hopes.

Otherwise for your sideboard Dreadbore could be handy to deal with planeswalkers and Rain of Gore is a handy trick. Blightning and Rakdos Charm could also have a place.

javiergodas on Boom goes the goblin!

If you want to improve this, x4 Lightning Bolt is a must. I'ld switch that for Brimstone Volley.

I also suggest that instead of copying spells with Reverberate, you get x4 Goblin Grenade and deal the 10 damage directly instead of hoping you'll get to copy what you need.

Goblin Bushwhacker and Reckless Bushwhacker are goblins that can kill on the spot.

Tarfire or Rift Bolt can be great replacements for Galvanic Blast and Pillar of Flame.

Hellrider isn't a goblin, so I suggest removing him to avoid wasting tribal bonuses.

Here's my goblin deck, check it out:

acht_deck_manager, hey. I used to have Goblin Sharpshooter in the deck, but without a guarantee kill for him (like with Basilisk Collar) there wasn't a good point to have him out. He would just sit and look cool.


Hellrider is a cool card. But I would rather have him in a deck that attacks often to make the most of him, like a Krenko, Mob Boss attack deck, then a spawn token deck like this. I think it's mostly cause my pods tend to have a lot, a lot of boardwipes.


I did also have Empty the Warrens here in my deck at one point, but with the cost of the spell, trying to storm without going broke, is pretty tough. It's an amazing card with Grinning Ignus, that's for sure!


Lots of good cards, it's tough to think of what to switch out for possible change. Good thoughts.

Ever considered running any of the following?:

Goblin Sharpshooter / Rage Thrower / Stalking Vengeance to make opponents wiping the board hurt a little more

Hellrider to make attacking with your swarms lethal as a last resort

Also there's Empty the Warrens when you want to go for broke making your tokens and Battle Hymn to give you the mana to go the distance

Definitely a cool take on the deck!

rsweeney56 It's almost worth it to splash green JUST for Beastmaster Ascension, but I was already splashing red.

Raid Bombardment, on the other hand, I need. I have no idea how I didn't find that.

The basis for this deck was my other token deck, Doomweaver's Impact, which itself was inspired by Balthuzad's Mardu Servo Madness. Anyhow, I didn't think I could make enough tokens to do enough damage with Reckless Fireweaver, so I built this deck and diversified the tokens and options.

Thank you so much! It's just that little bit cheaper than Hellrider too! I think I'll replace Not Forgotten with the Raid Bombardment.

Thanks heaps!

I can see what you're going for here. To me, I think some of your problem might be trying to do too much, have too many answers for different situations. All of the 1-ofs in your main and sideboard just make me cringe, as I know I would never draw the cards I need with only 1 copy in a deck.
Some thoughts I have for punching more damage through:
Guttersnipe
Hellrider
and this is a perfect shell for the Chandra's Spitfire / Raid Bombardment combo
and if your stuff keeps dying, you might want to test Rootborn Defenses in your sideboard. With Young Pyromancer, you'd be keeping all your stuff alive, plus adding two tokens.. :)

The two major barriers I see here are the potential for stalls, and a high vulnerability to removal. I mean, even a Pyroclasm kills almost everything you might have out, and an Anger of the Gods hits it all.
As for stalls, it's not hard to envision a couple decent creatures on your opponent's side gumming up the battlefield completely. And without a way to punch through more damage, the game going long is not going to help. Without altering a ton of the deck contents, I'd look at something like Seismic Stomp or Hellrider as possible stall breakers.
Oh, and Fulminator Mage definitely seems like sideboard material. If you want a three-drop, there, how about good old Ball Lightning?
