Mogg Raider Discussion

I think you may be onto something with Defense Grid and Revoker. Both are extremely relevant. I've usually used Victimize as my backup plan when doing Kiki/Conscripts. As for Worldgorger, it's a more devoted all-in combo, so if it fails, usually, it's game over. I think that's why I wouldn't use Mirror of Fate, though I do like it for the more casual variant that can play more the reliable game. I can only play the speed game myself.

Along that line, if you can splurge for Thoughtseize and Duress (though Duress is cheap), they make good hand hate over the creature version, because it means you can pluck the card they can use to win before they use it. And unlike the creature versions, they can't get it back without working for it.

If you're looking for a duplicate effect for Sledder, consider Mogg Raider - easier on the Ad Naus plan, and does literally the same thing. That way you're still using one drops.

Biggest issue with Devil's Play is that it's Sorcery speed, so you can't do it in response to Worldgorger's ETB/LTB effects. You have to hope to bring something else in for flickering or something else for the damage. So if you're looking for redundancy there, I used to use Siege-Gang Commander, but even something like Comet Storm would work.

No problem on the reminders - figured it was either forgotten about or it was budget constraints. Wasn't sure which, but since both are decently cheap, I always recommend them to other fast mana decks.

And glad to hear you'll be updating. Let me know what works, what doesn't. I'm always up for discussing interesting ideas - and I've had quite a bit of feedback on Grenzo. Which is hilarious, because he's still just a Rakdos deck - but still holds a good place in cEDH ;)

Yep, you definitely need a sac outlet. There's no shortage of them in this particular deck (Goblin Chirurgeon, Goblin Lookout, Goblin Sledder, Mogg Fanatic, Mogg Raider, Skirk Prospector, Goblin Bombardment, Ashnod's Altar etc).

Goblin Warchief, Mogg Raider, Skirk Prospector, and Victimize are not legal in modern

While this is not a bad idea, there are many more goblins that are just better than what you currently have. I would cut out mardu scout, freerunner, lookout, raging and subterranean. And run the following in their place:

Goblin Matron, Goblin Cohort, Goblin Sledder, Mogg Raider, Mogg War Marshal, Sparksmith, Goblin General (common vintage masters on MTGO)

Battle Hymn For big plays

Mountain 35 land weren't cutting it.

Teetering Peaks Land that had an additional use.

Goblin Burrows Land that made a goblin bigger.

Goblin Sledder Sacrifice Outlet

Mogg Raider Sacrifice Outlet

Goblin Diplomats Force opponents to attack.

Sensation Gorger When hand is empty on upkeep there's a good chance to draw 4 cards.


Shattering Pulse Usually quick enough to win before most artifacts become a problem.

Vandalblast Same as above.

Thermopod Played for ability, Cost is to mana intensive.

Hellrider 1 damage per attacking creature is great, Though the alpha strike will usually kill people just as quick.

Banefire Not really necessary.

Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician Worked well until opponents started killing important goblins with chump blocks.

Slate of Ancestry only used once. Never wanted to discard hand. Never wanted to draw that many cards.

Mindmoil Never used, was much to random. Replaced with Sensation Gorger.

That's just the printing Shakunjin. It's data says R like the card was originally printed as, but the card itself has to stay the RR version as all Anthologies Mogg Raiders are like that. You can just tag the Tempest one to get Mogg Raider.

Is there any chance that Mogg Raider will be fixed giving the new evidence I gave?

Thanks Bricksolr.

Agreed on the Greaves. I just need to figure out what to cut. Instigator should probably be in here as well, I expect that dropping him turn one or two should make it fairly easy to get a couple dudes on the table for free. Lackey does work too, and this is really just a two mana version of it.

I don't think Mogg Raider goes in here, though; the deck only really attacks for lethal anyway unless I'm trying to get a trigger like with Goblin Lackey or someone happens to be open. Hellrider and company push damage through, too so that blockers won't matter. An extra +1/+1 here and there probably won't make a difference.
