Lavastep Raider Discussion

NinjaReaper90 on Krenko’s Goblin Tomfuckery

1 year ago

now as for this deck itself, i'd heavily recommend cutting Krenko, Mob Boss for Goblin Chieftain , trade Lavastep Raider for Goblin Piledriver , cut 4 mountain for Lightning Bolt , and trade the enchantments and Hordeling Outburst for 4 Krenko's Command and 4 Throne of the God-Pharaoh

Lots of goblins to choose from, I don't know that many of them but Siege-Gang Commander, Goblin Soothsayer, Fanatical Firebrand, Wily Goblin, Lavastep Raider and Goblin Scouts are all good here. Haste spells like Burst of Speed are very useful here because you get to use your commander right away. Good luck!

Really cool deck! I love decks like this that are build purely around Monastery Swiftspear. However, I would swap out the Lavastep Raider and the Lightning Berserker for Kiln Fiend and maybe Nivmagus Elemental if they are cheap enough.

Michieltomme on Haste with burn

I think Pia Nalaar tries to do too much. If you're building around tokens you should take more cards like Shamble Back, Hanweir Garrison or even Doomed Dissenter but you'll still have a disadvantage against other token-decks with for example Anointed Procession (which is white). Else think nontoken creatures are generally more worth it. Just a sidenote: if you want the unblockable, I'd suggest cards like Magmatic Chasm, Voldaren Duelist or Cartouche of Zeal. If you want the bumping, I'd go for creatures like Ember-Eye Wolf or Lavastep Raider. If you want both in one card: Retreat to Valakut

Leatherankh was also right by saying you should speed up your clock, so Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Walking Ballista are better replaced by cards like Incendiary Flow for burn or cards like that Ember-Eye Wolf or Brazen Scourge for rush damage. Another card I love that you could consider as a finisher is Hijack. It gives you a strong enemy creature, removes a blocker and can thus really do a whole lot in a lot of situations. (it's also hillarious to play on giant creatures like Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger)

Deltis on Standard Issue Burn (now with counters)

Try cutting out... 1 of each basic land, 1 Lavastep Raider, 1 Electrify, and 1 Flame Lash. My reasoning for the cutting one on the burn spells is because they are the top of your curve and probably won't be cast as often as all the rest. My reasoning for the basics is because your highest cost is 4. 22 land is plenty to be able to usually have 1-3 basics in starting hand and so that you don't have to worry as much when hoping for the draw you need for burn being a land instead. The creature is because, yes it is a good creature for a 1 drop, you will probably be wanting your allies more than him due to their ability to burn more. You can always put these cards into your side deck if you decide to take them out so you still have them and can use them in the deck if need be.

@ Jimmy_Chinchila: I think a lot of the Zendikar Goblins are looking like that now with the weird carapace headset and all. See Zada, Hedron Grinder, Lavastep Raider, Chasm Guide, etc.

Aragon_Neotrix on Mono-Red Goblin **PLEASE HELP**

This isn't standard by far

If it isn't meant to be standard then add Impact Tremors 4 of them.

If it is?

Well I guess go with

3x Zada, Hedron Grinder2x Goblin Dark-Dwellers4x Lavastep Raider3x Goblin Freerunner4x Reckless Bushwhacker

Add in some vehicles

2x Sky Skiff3x Ovalchase Dragster or Renegade Freighter

Ditch Volcanic rush and take charge or Zada, Hedron Grinder Ability with stuff like Expedite and Brute Strength

Finally add some burn like Galvanic Bombardment in

hmmm. well I suggest taking out Vandalblast and Ruination along with the Adaptive Automaton and Quest for Pure Flame as well as Skullclamp and all special lands, except Nykthos, and add in cards like Battle Hymn, Barrage of Expendables, Lobber Crew, Goblin Chariot, Goblin Piker, maybe Nobilis of War, Goblin Roughrider, Goblin Shortcutter, Krenko's Enforcer, Quest for the Goblin Lord, Goblin Berserker, Goblin Balloon Brigade, maybe Ember Hauler, maybe Goblinslide, Lavastep Raider, Berserkers' Onslaught. trust me on this, I am a goblin master. I know how goblins work and know what does and does not work with them depending on the battle plan they use. from what I see here you want your goblins to multiply like crazy as well a light burn (I can see it from the Impact Tremors and Outpost Siege) so by having goblins that are cheap Krenko will bring out more miniblins (1/1 goblin tokens) faster. I like your strategy of having him hold Umbral Mantle so he untaps himself after bringing out miniblins so you can retap him to get more. very clever. however you should take out Goblin Rabblemaster. with him out you will be forced to attack every turn which would kinda ruin your giant goblin army since most of them they would most likely die.
