Mogg Maniac

Creature — Goblin

Whenever Mogg Maniac is dealt damage, it deals that much damage to target opponent.

Thank you for the advice. After giving it some thought, I added some of your suggestions. But cards like Boros Reckoner and Mogg Maniac I don't feel like adding, because I want to run as few creatures as possible.

Looking at your commander I immediately want to do something with the new Guilds of Ravnica cards that count instant and sorceries in exile.

Crackling Drake + Fling ? Beacon Bolt + Mogg Maniac ? xD

In the actually helpful range, it sounds like you're doing some tournament play, which usually means you get a sideboard if you want one. Have you thought about Burning Wish , Cunning Wish etc. To give you some more space to play with?

Hey there, love the deck, had it on my watch list for ages now.

I'm in love with this interaction and wanted to get your thoughts on it: Repercussion and utilizing damage-based sweepers such as Incite Rebellion and Blasphemous Act . Seems like a perfect way to turn an enemy's strength into a weakness. I know you don't like wraths, but this would be a win condition similar to Rakdos Charm. Obviously the deck needs to be lighter on creatures than your opponents' decks, and might be a little too cute, but if you're already encouraging combat between your opponents' creatures, this would help speed up the clock.

On a related note, I'm curious how you draw the line between damage redirecting rattlesnakes such as Stuffy Doll , Spitemare , Mogg Maniac , and Truefire Captain , compared to cards such as Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs and Marchesa's deathtouch? I read your comment where you say opponents have to attack you to get Stuffy Doll to work, but by having a clear, "you know exactly what will happen to you if you attack me," card laid out, much like Master of Cruelties, people should choose to attack elsewhere, therefore fulfilling its purpose as a rattlesnake; what's the difference?

Also wanted to bring up a few cards I haven't seen you or anyone else discuss:

Outmaneuver - found this while digging, and it looks HILARIOUS. Use on an opponent's attack against someone else to turn a blocked attack into a slaughter.

Similarly, because I love infect, Tainted Strike to turn a painful attack into an unexpected lethal one. Again, usable on an opponent's creature, your own Gisela, or a Sunforgered+Boros Charmed anything.

Traitor's Roar - expensive CMC, not an instant, but, another option for anti-tall tech, and can be conspired for even more massive damage. Not great, just wanted to mention it. In a similar vein, Agonizing Demise .

Searing Rays - another I found and just wanted to mention, since it's not great. Almost always going to be a worse Stronghold Discipline , but one mana cheaper, and useful for a mono-color heavy meta (Elves, etc.)

Lastly, because it's so beautifully perfect for an Aikido deck in art, flavor, effect, flavor text, everything: Turn the Tables . Just look at that art; the casual and hilarious smackdown! Read that flavor text; confident as hell! I know, 5 CMC is a lot to hold up, but I love it too much, picked one up in foil. I'm sure you can appreciate it, even if you'd never run it.

Shame you changed to such a drastically different meta; I've read what kind of decks you face now, and those are certainly trickier to "Aikido" around to victory. My meta is much more creature-combat focused, so I'm looking forward to something along your initial lines!

Again, great deck!

Very Solid. There are some sub-optimal choices imo, but overall, nicely focused.

Shock is just not worth the slot in EDH. Leyline of Lightning is ok, but can be pretty mana intensive to keep using, especially in a land destruction deck, I don't see it being worth it. Guttersnipe is always nice, but with you creature wipes, you might kill it without a big payout. Keep an eye on how many X spells you have too, you might be shooting yourself in the foot, unless you add more artifact ramp, like a Fire Diamond and Ruby Medallion . Treasure Nabber can put everyone between a rock and a hard place if they are using artifact ramp. You'll also need some more card draw so that your single target removal keeps up with the board. Pyromancer's Goggles can help keep you up with 3 other players. If you fall behind, Acidic Soil and Price of Progress might be nice backups. Mana Web , War's Toll , Tectonic Instability might slow everyone down too.

Where is Blood Moon !? If you want to get pricey, Extraplanar Lens with Snow Covered Mountains is just mean with Blood Moon

Red has a huge weakness: Enchantments. You might want to add some enchantment hate, just in case. Even though they are costly Meteor Golem and Spine of Ish Sah are ok. Enchanter's Bane could fit in here real well.

I know you love your goblins, but I think Stuffy Doll is just better than Mogg Maniac . If you really want to anger people, mass land destruction is best: Ruination , Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Decree of Annihilation , and Impending Disaster are the most well known. Even an early game Tremble could be infuriating. If you your deck can get some tokens, or just fodder creatures Shivan Harvest might be fun. Mine Layer would cause a lot of frustration. So would Price of Glory , but it can hurt you too. I personally love Volcanic Offering because it can make someone mad at someone else. Bend or Break can divert some attention from you too.

Burning Earth Fits this deck pretty well. Maybe, Burning Sands too.

You don't need to take any of these suggestions, but they might be nice ideas for a sub theme, or a different way to think about how the deck could be run. I am not looking forward to this monstrosity lol

Well Whispering Madness and Psychic Corrosion seemed fun, and were intended to play together. I even considered Undead Alchemist and Wildfire Eternal for that. Casting zombies and getting mill spells like Traumatize and Mind Funeral for free seemed like a thing to do if I can get the Eternal through.

The other goal was originally to mash Flayer, Prized Amalgam, Sickening Dreams, Nahiri's Wrath and Mogg Maniac into the same shell. I don’t exactly want to only build Grixis decks, despite my love affair with the undead lol. This deck could have Gravecrawlers and Bloodghasts, and would probably benefit from a way to reanimate the Flayers.

Haha Arvail I hear you. These are cards purchased between June and now, and yes I cut down. I’m fully aware of my capacity for addiction. They’re not the only cards I bought either, but I ordered some for my cube and at least Dreams, Wrath and Flayer were intended to go in the same deck...maybe Prized Amalgam. Nahiri's Wrath+ Mogg Maniac seemed fun...Also in the OP I didn’t mean fanatic I meant Maniac.

TMBRLZ No specific format, my play group doesn’t like when they lose before they get to durdle around for awhile...
