there isn't really an "attack position" in MTG. as for your question, removing the source of an ability does not remove the ability from the stack. if your creatures have already attacked, then Legion Loyalist will trigger, and the effect will resolve (and stay resolved) even if Legion Loyalist leaves the battlefield. your opponent can however, Lightning Bolt the Legion Loyalist before it is declared as an attacker, to stop the effect from triggering in the first place.

Legion Loyalist 's ability still resolves. Once you declare all your attackers in your example, the Loyalist's battalion ability triggers and gets put onto the stack. Killing the Loyalist after this point won't make the game back up and undo the trigger. If your opponent wants to stop the Loyalist's ability from happening then they would need to kill it before you declare attackers.

If I attack with 4 1/1 goblin tokens and Legion Loyalist and my opponent responds with Lightning Bolt on the legion loyalist, does his trample and first strike ability get removed from the tokens remaining in attack position?

First, I'm not sure that Judith from Accounting will make the cut but I want to test her for 3 reasons. First, like you said it pushes the pace. Second, it gives me another alt win-con outside of combat (janky Mikaeus/Glen Eledndra/Sac Outlet combo). Lastly, it only costs 3 mana and I'm trying to lower my creature mana curve a bit due to 90% of my low cmc stuff being non-creature.

On that note... I should try Legion Loyalist . That haste makes for a pretty out-of-nowhere trample+first strike your team (for a measly 1 red mana) and even if he dies, he typically did so with a +1+1 counter.

Priest is a card that caught my eye as well but I feel it'd do better in tokens or aristocrats. The fact that it has to tap doesn't help the card much either. How consistently do you have a haste enabler or 2 guys you don't mind sacrificing so this guy can actually be used? Very high ceiling on this card though, let me know how it works out for you here.

Hey guys, it's been like a year since I've been on Tappedout, sorry for this - school and work kept me busy.

Thanks a lot GoblinsBeatElves! Appreciate the support, and of course your name!

apohis There are times in which it can be good and times in which it's bad. I still think it's better to use than not to in general (and not just because my deck title name needs it), as its synergy with Legion Loyalist and a couple other creatures is quite good. I oftentimes would use it as a finisher, so you're not just going to pump it out right away, you'll play it after you have a few guys on the board.

Thanks for the comment AriesBladeX but RJE08 did a good job in explaining what you have to do. Essentially, the legend rule does apply yes, but you sacrifice the Krenko in which you've already used. This means that at any time there is only 1 Krenko, Mob Boss on the field, you just sacrifice the one which you've already tapped for goblins.

Skirk Prospector is definitely a good 1 drop, It would be nice to have another 1 drop in addition to Legion Loyalist

I have been checking around my local stores for Impact Tremors and cant wait to get my hands on them.

And you're right, I've been thinking Puppet Strings Voltaic Servant is clumsy/out of place, I'm in favor of Renegade Tactics or some burn spells for sure.

Thanks for your input.

I love the pauper project, the names are awesome and many of them seem to have an incredible level of synergy. I'm ordering some of my faves this weekend along with 4 x Impact Tremors

DigitalEmerald Hell Yeah, Didn't even realize, Trample and First Strike with blocking restrictions for TukTuk would just be plain mean. Goblin Goon could also be a substitue for your Goblin King, not to mention with 4 Goblin Chieftain you get a lot of +1/+1 across the board. You could REALLY capitalize on that trample damage with a few heavy hitters. The Goon might even find his way back in to my deck once I get some more Legion Loyalist

Thanks again!

Fun take on Marchesa.

I do however think you need more ways to lose life like City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Shivan Reef, and other painlands. Watery Grave and Steam Vents as well. I'd also make room for both Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence. Fellwar Stone is another good 2 cmc rock.

Run a few more boardwipes like Last One Standing, Cyclonic Rift, and Jokulhaups instead of so much targeted removal.

Also, get Chaos Warp in here. It's one of your only ways to interact with enchantments and by far the best. 100% needed.

Legion Loyalist isn't a vampire but I think first strike + trample for your team relatively out of nowhere seems good. That and he has haste and gets a +1+1 counter when he attacks so he sticks around. I'd also run Shared Animosity.

For cuts, I'd drop most of your targeted removal like Murder, Terminate, and Go for the Throat. I'd drop all your 3 cmc mana rocks for 2 drops as this helps with a T3 Marchesa. I'd also drop your 1 time draw spells like Sign in Blood and Tormenting Voice.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's not tribal but it should still help. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decklists is appreciated. Marchizzle my Nizzle
