Legion Warboss

Creature — Goblin Soldier

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

At the beginning of combat on your turn, create a 1/1 red Goblin creature token. That token gains haste until end of turn and attacks this combat if able.

Bedevil is not counting towards the mana curve graph, and is not displaying the English version of the card for me.

Legion Warboss when play testing does not give the option create a goblin token only a custom token.

My dude,

I'm running into some mana issues while testing. I believe you're running too many green mana producers, and not enough white. You also run so many Legendary creatures, it gets rough at times when I draw 2 Tajics in my opening hand, and an Aurelia, followed by another Aurelia. Granted, awesome for the Mox, but still.

Also, with a good chunk of your lands being checklands, it sucks when you draw into a hand of them on a fast decktype like this one.

I'd recommend altering your mana base slightly, swapping your checklands for painlands like Karplusan Forest , Battlefield Forge , or some Brushlands (for some reason, it can't find the Brushland here). A deck this quick that wants to win on T4 or T5 shouldn't care much about losing 4 or 5 points of life to win with overwhelming numbers and damage. I'd also consider dropping 1 Mox Amber for an additional Response / Resurgence as I never seem to get one when I need one, and I can only ever have one Amber out at a time (though playing, tapping, sacking, playing another one, and tapping it for 2 mana total is pretty fun).

I like your single planeswalker, but I've only ever managed to get a single use out of it in the testing I've done with it, and I run out of creatures to play or multicolored spells to cast, so the Hero of Precinct One don't seem to really do much, so you have to rely on the Legion Warboss , which you really don't want to be doing, as you want to kill off consistently at T5 and we're not going for a late game kill.

That being said, LOVED this deck idea and I may or may not steal it and run some stress tests with my group.

Keep decking!

Legion Warboss could provide you a 1/1 hasty goblin each turn. And Skirk Prospector would help you playing these big creatures earlier.

Honestly I don't know what's wrong with Goblin Warchief , this guy allows you to activate Krenko's ability as soon as you cast it, and also cast every goblin faster after turn 3.

Giving haste to all these small 1/1 is crucial, cause the more you trigger Cavalcade of Calamity the better.

I don't think you need so many sorceries, I like to play a bunch of small creatures in my goblin deck (https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/goblin-meat-shield/) but I understand your choice.

Zhalfirin Void is nice but with only 8 regular mountains and 16 lands in total, my guess is you will often be short of mana. 18 sounds better, again it's just my advice.

Eledain: Goblin Chainwhirler and Legion Warboss are fantastic cards to be sure, but I especially dislike that chainwhirler can't be discounted by Goblin Warchief .

Cavalcade of Calamity is a GREAT idea though! It will most definitely replace Burn Bright as by anticlimactic win-con

What about Cavalcade of Calamity or the true goblin master Goblin Chainwhirler or her comrade Legion Warboss ?

For that price perhaps go some sort of budget boros aggro. I've seen some Boros aggro at my LGS and it runs fairly well with Boros Challenger as you have mentioned. For faster wins perhaps add Chance for Glory and then cast Response / Resurgence . Chance for Glory can give your creatures indestructible for the rest of the game which can help with boardwipes. If the deck is aggro enough you shouldn't need to worry about the other half of Chance. Legion Warboss can fit in and if Chance is too scary for the negative side you could just run Make a Stand to get around boardwipes. I run a deck with some of these features and they work fairly well. I love Deafening Clarion as well.

Gotcha. I'll use my playset I just found of Theater of Horrors for another deck then haha.

I've been scouring for awhile tonight and found a few cards of note that might be fun the I could maybe get some playsets for under $20.

Swiftblade Vindicator and Legion Warboss

As some midrange mentor pay offs.

Card draw in Risk Factor ?

Maybe upping some removal in cards such as Justice Strike ?

Boros Challenger 's for some early game presence?

Integrity / Intervention for the hard aggro match ups?

These are just a few cards I've found.

SynergyBuild on [Combo Help] Boros Glory TURNS!

The following is a package of cards.

4x Gideon of the Trials

4x Angel's Grace

4x Chance for Glory

4x Glorious End

None of these cards are great in modern, yet together they put eight, instant speed, slightly more expensive Time Walk s into your deck. Can this be built around?

Whether the rest of the deck abuses this, perhaps using Ad Nauseam , making for a Mardu Ad-Naus list, using Extra turns as ramp, or if the deck plays controlling, with Pact of Negation s, Slaughter Pact s, etc.

Maybe if it ran the pacts, cards like Sundial of the Infinite would be useful, or if it uses Ad-Naus, Angel's Grace would work.

The ideas are endless, yet there seems to be some possibility of a powerhouse.


The first idea I had used a boros-aggro list as the base, using Glorious End and Chance for Glory turns to keep swinging in. It ran Goblin Rabblemaster and Legion Warboss and I even tried Mentor of the Meek to trigger on those goblins entering, so that hopefully I'd draw enough to hit more turns, and more creatures. The deck was... not great? It felt like a clunky aggro deck even when Goldfishing, and against any removal or discard, it fell apart pretty fast.

I haven't tested the Ad-Naus list, yet feel it might be the best option available. Unsure to be fair however, and so I want to ask for advice on this topic before I test further with the list.
