I think Fanatical Firebrand should be in this list somewhere. Goblin Bushwhacker Has always been a decent card also. Foundry Street Denizen great goblin.

if in budget Goblin Guide is a must with Legion Loyalist

Goblin Rabblemaster great card to consider. Not seen in a lot of lists but could be good in the side

Regardless of how you choose to build a mono-red Grenzo list, the early game is very important because that's when defenses are down. For that reason, always give preference for creatures you can drop early on in the game. I'd say, for example, that Legion Loyalist is a must here. I don't think rolling earthquake is where you wanna go with this deck. Instead, I'd try something like Sudden Demise. As I've mentioned before, this strategy is pretty linear and you'll have a hard time playing against non-gimmicky/non-casual lists. Trashmaster is a cool addition that I missed during my last set review. Think will probably add it to my own list. GL!

Include cards that make the opponent less likely to block:

Ankle Shanker, Odric, Lunarch Marshal (with the right keywords), Champion of Lambholt, Legion Loyalist, Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist.

Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor is particularly saucy in Saskia.

You can also include cards that say creatures cannot block, or cards that change how blockers are assigned - Master Warcraft, Odric, Master Tactician and of course Brutal Hordechief.

perhaps a Mind's Eye over Vanquisher's Banner and a Kindred Boon to hand out to key soldiers. Tragic Arrogance is like a Cataclysmic Gearhulk, but you get to pick what your opponents are losing. the Odric, Lunarch Marshal is handy for passing out buffs, and Odric, Master Tactician is great for combat manipulation. Mirror Entity is a great soldier that provides a great base stat change. Ranger of Eos is also a soldier and fetches some handy 1 costs, like your Legion Loyalist and Soltari Foot Soldier. Overall, cool deck. +1

Hello DRmagic2017,

Thanks for the view and suggestion.

Legion Loyalist is nice in a deck with big beasties, but this deck is full of weenies that don't attack. He would work nicely if I still had Insurrection and Molten Primordial, but I've removed them in favor of creatures that enter with friends (and the purphy triggers associated with them) . My next cut is probably going to be Mass Mutiny.

The problem with the creatures that I run in this deck is that no one is afraid of first striking, trampling 1/1's

Legion Specialist

Creature - Elf Soldier (Mythic)

Mentor (Whenever this creature attacks, put a +1/+1 counter on target attacking creature with lesser power.)

Whenever Legion Specialist becomes untapped, bolster 1 (Choose a creature with the least toughness among creatures you control and put a +1/+1 counter on it.)


It would have to be a mythic for those stats, but a non-legendary mythic is always welcome.

Did you guys see that our little Legion Loyalist got Promoted? :)

Anyway, keep the challenge going: Make a card with two mechanics.

You're going to need a lot more 1-drops. Remember, if you don't play anything turn 1, you probably won't be activating battalion until turn 5, which is far too late. Good options include Goblin Guide, Legion Loyalist, Champion of the Parish, Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip, and Isamaru, Hound of Konda.

I'd consider cutting Make a Stand and Firemane Avenger. Make a Stand is a lot worse than it looks. It's only good in specific matchups, and very hard to get good timing with. As for Firemane Avenger, it's a 4-drop that doesn't give you immediate value and dies to bolt. That's a no-no in modern.
