Hey all! I made some edits to the deck recently with some cards from C19 and Eldraine:

I playtested the deck last Friday and Backdraft Hellkite helped me quite a bit. Let me know your thoughts on the new inclusions!

Gempalm Incinerator is a card I remembered but forgot to put in! This helps a whole lot, for obvious reasons. I'm only skipping on prophetic ravings because I intend to be killing most of my goblins for commander damage, and I don't have a way to replay it more than once like i do with Squee or my instants/sorceries with Izzet Chemister . And haste isn't much of a problem for me since I have Anger , Goblin Warchief , and Goblin Bushwhacker . The card draw, though, is something that I need or else I'm top-decking after the first several turns.

Please link all cards you're asking about, so it's easier for people to tell what you're asking about. Izzet Chemister

Unfortunately things won't quite work the way you'd like in this regard. Izzet Chemister's abilities are linked abilities, which only care about each other. You could only cast cards exiled with the first ability.

From Mairsil's rulings: "If Mairsil gains an activated ability that’s normally linked to another activated ability of the card it came from, those two abilities Mairsil gains are linked for as long as Mairsil remains on the battlefield. For example, if Mairsil exiles Izzet Chemister, cards exiled with the first ability Mairsil gained from Izzet Chemister can be cast if you activate the second ability it gained that way. Izzet Chemister itself can’t be cast this way, and if Mairsil leaves the battlefield before activating that second ability, the cards exiled with that first ability are lost forever."

The emphasized section specifically shows that you couldn't cast the caged cards, even though they were exiled with this instance of Mairsil, because they weren't exiled due to the ability linked to the casting ability. The part that makes the Chemister's abilities linked is the fact that the second activated ability specifically refers to the effect of the first activated ability.

Relevant rule: "607.5. - If an object acquires a pair of linked abilities as part of the same effect, the abilities will be similarly linked to one another on that object even though they weren’t printed on that object. They can’t be linked to any other ability, regardless of what other abilities the object may currently have or may have had in the past."

Izzet Chemister for reference. It has some synergy - you may sacrifice Mairsil/Chemister to cast all cards exiled with it, but only the current Mairsil. You have no access to cards caged by prior iterations of Mairsil via the last ability of Chemister.

All cards that reenter the battlefield are considered new permanents with no memory of their previous existence. That is the reason why mairsil uses cage counters - that is so far the only way the game has to track cards in exile.

Okay, so I'm cooking up a Mairsil, the Pretender brew for my next build and I came across a mega sick-as card, namely Izzet Chemister . If I were to cage the chemister with Mairsil, would I be able to cast literally everything that I've caged if I use his second ability? If this works, I'm surprised I haven't seen any other lists with the two paired up with each other.

I have some ideas that might help to combo with the Instant and Sorcery synergy you have.

Bloodfire Enforcers can get deadly once it is active and pumped; Trample and First Strike together make the damage hard to block or take to the face.

Charmbreaker Devils helps with recursion, and also gets swull AF.

Galvanoth lets you play an Instant or Sorcery for free, and also doesn't reveal your topdeck to the whole board if you can't cast it.

Many of your Instants and Sorceries are cheap, so Goblin Dark-Dwellers might give you some utility mileage. Essentially gives you another body on the board and a recast, so it's good card efficiency.

Izzet Chemister can let you cast multiple Instants and Sorceries from your grave, giving you the ability to reach critical mass faster.

You don't get triggers from copies, but Guttersnipe might still be useful for racking up passive damage.

Finally, Sphinx-Bone Wand can help you win the game with direct damage if you can't get combat stuff through.

Great deck! +1 from me.
