Murderous Redcap

Murderous Redcap Discussion

falc0n1234 on Alesha, who does some stuff

Looks pretty good so far. I noticed the only sacrifice outlets you run are Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Viscera Seer. I recommend adding more like Goblin Bombardment, Altar of Dementia, and Ashnod's Altar. These synergize very well with Alesha's gameplan, and give you access to bring back them with Alesha turn after turn. This also makes it easier to combo off with Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit and Murderous Redcap as well as Karmic Guide and Reveillark. Anger is also a very good card to put in your deck. Giving all your creatures haste from the grave for free is amazing to have. Another thing that essentially every Alesha deck should have is Buried Alive. Probably the best tutor you can have for reanimation strategies, and it is pretty affordable, so that is a plus. You also would benefit running Return to Dust which is a great card in any white deck. Path to Exile is an obvious inclusion, but if you don't have the budget for it, it isn't a deal breaker as you have cards like Swords to Plowshares which fill similar roles. Since you have a lot of basic lands, Magus of the Moon and/or Blood Moon are great additions to slow your opponents down (although this decision comes down to how many non-basic lands your playgroup plays regularly). You can also check my most recent Alesha EDH deck if you want to compare.

mewbusi on Goblins with a side of combo

vomitpile Legion Warboss has a much more lasting effect on the board state while allowing for more defensive play if needed. This is mainly due to the mentor effect that is fairly useful if it comes in after Metallic Mimic allowing you to buff creatures that might have not received the Mimic's Effects. While it might not be as damaging as Goblin Rabblemaster I feel that it is much more reserved in its play and responds better to spot removal.

Honestly if you just remove two of the Murderous Redcaps and one of either the Stingscourger or Subterranean Scout you would be able to run both. That or you can just remove the Legion Warbosses and replace them with the Goblin Rabblemasters if you want a more aggressive deck. Honestly I updated the deck to its current state for testing of the replacement in the next few weeks.

I guess it would be a better idea to run both to test their effects so I'll update the deck today.

Leyline of Sanctity only really stops Murderous Redcap from hitting their face, we can still kill all of their creatures as long as they aren't hexproof or indestructible. And I am also running some Nature's Claim to fight that in the side board. Leyline of the Void is way worse, and Nature's Claim also takes care of that.

Solemnity prevents me from putting a -1/-1 to untap Devoted Druid. But you are correct it is awesome for the Kitchen Finks and Murderous Redcap.

Ok this is a weird combo but...

Metallic Mimic+Murderous Redcap+Ashnod's Altar/Phyrexian Altar

You cast or put Metallic Mimic into play naming Goblins or Assassins (probably preferably Goblins for your commander's sake) and then put Murderous Redcap into play. Using either artifact, you can sacrifice the redcap and it re-enters with a -1/-1 counter, which is negated thanks to the +1/+1 counter that comes from Metallic Mimic. You can then sacrifice Murderous Redcap any number of times to produce enough mana, since whenever it would enter play with a -1/-1 counter, that counter is automatically negated.

The bonus to this combo is that it essentially becomes an infinite damage (thanks to Murderous Redcap's ability), infinite creature entering play and infinite creature dying combo as well.

The combo also works with any persist creature you may have if you choose to name a different creature type (for example, I use a similar combo with Puppeteer Clique and Bloodspore Thrinax in my Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire deck.

Hello :)

First thing I want to ask you is what do you mean by competitive? Just running combos doesn't make a deck competitive; efficiency and consistency does. What kind of meta are you in? What are some common decks you play against?

Depending on how deep you want to go into combo, jund has a lot to offer. If you are going for a more grindy, aristocrats style deck, I'd suggest you take a look at my competitive(ish) Sek'kuar deck:

Wild Carnival

If you are full on combo then I suggest you take the reanimator rute to utilise the infamous Worldgorger Dragon + Necromancy(et als.) for infinite mana. There's a few omissions in the combos already present in the deck as well. Namely Triskelion and Deathbringer Thoctar combo with Black Mike, and Nim Deathmantle combos with Ashnod's Altar and any persist creature (albeit the only two I find really matter is Murderous Redcap and Woodfall Primus - the rest don't cut it as they don't win you the game which is what combo wants to do).

From looking at the deck, I like the tutor package. It's very heavy, which leaves you with little interaction towards the board. Streamlining your creature base is going to be very important, because as it stands, the deck will too slow, too clunky, and too easily stopped in a 75% meta (that is to say, very finely tuned decks but not degenerate turn 2-3 wins). So get interaction on bodies that you can later sac for value :)

Well anyway, this is turning into incoherent rant :p

Hope it's still a little bit helpfull!

Why not run a similar combo package involving Nim Deathmantle? It works really well with any persist or undying creatures and Ashnod's Altar. One creature I would recommend is Murderous Redcap.
