Messenger's Speed Discussion

I wanted to see what your thoughts were on some alternate haste enablers in exchange for maybe some of the creature based haste such as Bloodlust Inciter and Goblin Motivator . The two I was thinking of are Racecourse Fury and Messenger's Speed ? I appreciate your time and this sick deck list

Optimator on krenko gobbos

I would highly recommend a bit more card-draw and a few untappers. Krenko does amazing with a few untappers.

Magewright's Stone is good. Thousand-Year Elixir is great too. Umbral Mantle is decent. Puppet Strings is good on a budget. Illusionist's Bracers are a good choice too. You don't need to go nuts but having three or so untappers in the 99 will serve you well. If you can tutor up Skirk Prospector, Krenko can go infinite with Thornbite Staff, though it just recently spiked in price.

Good red card draw is rare but every EDH deck needs a little. Reforge the Soul, Faithless Looting, Cathartic Reunion, Outpost Siege, Mind's Eye, Skullclamp, and Wild Guess are good. Staff of Nin is good on a budget too.

You have almost no ramp at all. Goblins are pretty low to the ground but every deck needs a little ramp. Krenko usually has a bulls-eye on his back so you'll want to be able to recast him. Sol Ring, Worn Powerstone, Fire Diamond, Mind Stone, Darksteel Ingot, Coldsteel Heart, Hedron Archive, Ur-Golem's Eye, and Gilded Lotus might be good places to start.

I would highly recommend dropping all the combat tricks. In a multiplayer setting with increased life totals they just don't have the "oomf" that they do in regular 60-card formats.

I would also drop Hedron Blade, Stormrider Rig, Claws of Valakut, Goblin War Paint, and Messenger's Speed. No good in EDH. War Horn is decent for Krenko but there are better cards out there so if things get tight you can drop it easily enough.

hkhssweiss on Uril ramp/control

sriah001 Hmm I know you said that a few goals of yours are to control the board through Wraths, but what about just making Uril a huge enough threat where that doesn't matter.

Some card draws I can think right off the bat for Uril are Sylvan Library, Sensei's Divining Top, Commune with Lava, Hunter's Insight, Sage's Reverie, Sixth Sense, and Keen Sense.

If your going for more of an enchantress type build there are other card drawing options in terms of Enchantress's Presence, Sram, Senior Edificer, Satyr Enchanter, Mesa Enchantress, Kor Spiritdancer, Argothian Enchantress.

Some general cards I would recommend for Uril as well would be: Rancor, Shielded by Faith, Messenger's Speed, Ethereal Armor, Hyena Umbra, and Spirit Mantle.

Hope that helps!

Hey there,

Excellent work on the Uril deck! I run one myself and it's a ton of fun. I gotta say, I love the Bear Umbra + Aggravated Assault; need both to keep the juggle going, but good god that's gotta be fun to pull off.

Anyway, here's a few cards you may want to consider!

Evasion/Trample

These are low cmc cards to help get past creatures to trample right through them.

  1. Asha's Favor
  2. Gryff's Boon
  3. Giant Spectacle
  4. Shield of the Oversoul
  5. Messenger's Speed
  6. Mob Mentality
  7. Imposing Visage
  8. Primal Frenzy
  9. Tilonalli's Crown

Utility

These I like because they help remove a blocker. Potentially can be chucked considering the amount of evasion and trample, but once and a while someone has something that is worth tapping or preventing from blocking.

  1. Cartouche of Zeal
  2. Grasp of the Hieromancer
  3. Hammerhand

Removal

NV_1980 had some good suggestions, as did others. I've got some more :)

  1. Cataclysm
  2. Wildfire
  3. Hull Breach
  4. Destructive Revelry
  5. Destructive Urge
  6. Chandra's Ignition, +1
  7. Razia's Purification, +1

Ramp

Not sure how you're doing on mana, but it never hurts to get more! Keep in mind utility enchantments help boost Helm of the Gods and others.

  1. Land Tax
  2. Exploration
  3. Fertile Ground
  4. Trace of Abundance
  5. Utopia Sprawl
  6. Wild Growth

Enchantment Protection

  1. Fountain Watch
  2. Sterling Grove

Hope some of the suggestions help. Again, cool deck. Hope you have fun smashing people's faces in!

@PlatinumWare Whatever works for you works. I personally wont recommend Messenger's Speed. If youre not running into many control decks, you could drop Raiders for Kari Zev. Were you getting multiple triggers? Not blocking? If youre low on life, you can keep the raid turned off which I would assume since youre leaving up blockers?
