Creature — Bird Shaman


When Kathari Bomber deals combat damage to a player, put two 1/1 red Goblin creature tokens onto the battlefield and sacrifice Kathari Bomber.

I always liked Kathari Bomber, because they worded its ability all weird. The ability should have been worded "When Kathari Bomber deals combat damage to a player, sacrifice it. If you do, create two 1/1 red Goblin creature tokens."

But, since the sacrifice is part of the effect, so you can sacrifice him to pay the cost of another spell or ability and still get the goblins. Years ago, when they were both Standard legal, I would hit the opponent with the Kathari Bomber, and sacrifice it to Phyrexian Vault in response.

Anyway...if you can make enough Goblins, you can blow up the opponent with Voracious Dragon, and that's always hilarious.

Goblin Bushwhacker was (is?) a finisher in Naya Zoo, I'd say absolutely. Goblin Grenade seems decent as well, especially considering you have plenty of (Dragon) fodder for it. Turns useless early game tokens into late game finishers. Kathari Bomber is questionable. Seems way too slow, and only for 2 tokens. Krenko's Command seems too redundant to me, I might even cut the two that are already there. Lightning Bolt is an absolute must.

I do have a Goblin Instigator in the deck, completely overlooked getting more. on my acquire list i have the Goblin Grenade and Lightning Bolt. I saw the Mogg War Marshal but i think instead of those im gonna get a few more Kathari Bomber. As for the cards you recommended to remove ill definitely look at those, thanks for the input!

I have a decent goblin/burn deck currently built but me and my friends are upgrading our decks to a certain budget to be fair all around, the deck currently sits around $21(TCG) and we have a limit of around $80-$90 to upgrade. The cards that i'm currently considering are: 4x Goblin Bushwhacker 4x Goblin Grenade 3x Kathari Bomber 2x Krenko's Command 4x Lightning Bolt

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

I run the Obelisk to have sth that deals with Enchantments. Scour from Existence was my other option and Chaos Warp the last resort.

Bloodghast is the gift from a friend so it is cool. Kathari Bomber has given me some doubts and thr goblin player in my group seems a but biased insisting in me playing it so I appreciate the opinion.

Fleshbag Marauder was my choice because if I sac it with no other creatures on board I have no penalty, but it might be too conditional and will think of replacing it instead.

Finally, Pitiless Plunderer is indeed good for ramp and along Pawn of Ulamog, Sifter of Skulls or Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder can give me huge amounts of mana or even an infinite loop with Reassembling Skeleton. Ogre Slumlord gives me the black tokens but there aren't many red token generators in the Aristocrats department. Goblin Assault or Krenko perhaps

Unstable Obelisk doesn't seem particularly good Bloodghast is a fantastic card, but seems a bit expensive (if you're ok with it then its fine in the deck) Kathari Bomber doesn't seem to be stellar, good in the early game but probably not great in the long run Fleshbag Marauder for Plaguecrafter simply a better card Pitiless Plunderer good for ramp but the tokens don't work well for the theme, they are sac-able creatures and they're colorless. the same goes for the Eldrazi token makers if you can find a card that makes tokens that are red or black it'd help

You'll probably get more value from Undying Evil over Recover; in particular, the synergy it has with Ingot Chewer, Augur of Skulls, Insolent Neonate, Kathari Bomber, and echo card mechanics. Undying procs on any death, including sacrifices. It's an incredible combo card. Also, Unearth for consideration as well.

My original idea was that you can always sacrifice a goblin token generated by Mogg War Marshal or Kathari Bomber if Stingscourger is not around. Because they will still put counters on both Gavony Unhallowed and the Mortician Beetle and hit your opponent for five. But I am not sure how to balance it out with the other creatures... I meant it mosty as safeguard in case you get stuck in the beginning of the game with no Beetle out.
