Murderous Redcap

Creature — Goblin Assassin

When Murderous Redcap enters the battlefield, it deals damage equal to its power to target creature, player or planeswalker.

Persist (When this creature is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, if it had no -1/-1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control with a -1/-1 counter on it.)

Murderous Redcap won't work, as its Rakdos and not Golgari, but the Devoted Druid + Quillspike combo might be up your alley.

@markmarkyesyes I'm glad you had fun with the deck! I have considered Anafenza + Finks here, but I decided against it because I already had enough combos and wanted to maintain the deck's focus.

If you're considering adding red to the deck and keeping the current strategy, I think the biggest cards you gain are Murderous Redcap , Imperial Recruiter , and Goblin Bombardment . I don't think Gamble is really worth it, since there are already a ton of tutors in the deck that don't have the potential to fail.

If you aren't tied to an aristocrats deck and want to move to something more competitive, adding red opens up my own Tymna + Tana deck, Blood Pod. That's more of a stax/tempo deck with a combo finish. There are a few primers over on the competitive EDH subreddit.

You could also play a really powerful aristocrats/ Protean Hulk deck like this one from tw0handt0uch. Depends if you meta is ready for that kind of thing.

Necropotence would be an interesting card draw to tutor. It messes up the Murderous Redcap combo, however, so that may have to be replaced.

I don't know if you know this, but you can still win the game with Murderous Mimic without a sac outlet. Let's say you have the Murderous Redcap , Metallic Mimic & lastly either Judith, the Scourge Diva or Zulaport Cutthroat . If the redcap enters the battlefield last you can have its etb target itself killing it. This in turn allows the redcap to continuously sacrifice itself to its etb while Judith or the Cutthroat kills your opponents.

Just an update: I removed Murderous Redcap as the commander of Warren Hell Did All These Goblins Come From? and replaced it with Garna, the Bloodflame . Still goblins goblining goblinly though.

You have a good mix of creatures, each providing different utility. I would suggest Master of Cruelties is one to add, as being able to instakill someone on a whim is extremely useful (and a real power play against control/ stax decks)

Reconnaissance is a must have for attacking decks running white. Attack then untap all your creatures in post attack step.

I see you're running a fair few sac effects, so why not throw in Reveillark , Karmic Guide and Blood Artist for a backup plan combo win? Or go with Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Murderous Redcap and a sac outlet for infinite damage (and infinite mana with Phyrexian Altar , not that you need it.

Finally, throw in some tasty utility creatures such as Selfless Spirit , Remorseful Cleric , Noosegraf Mob , Drana, Liberator of Malakir and Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice
