Ogre Battledriver Discussion

Hey there, Blackjack4652! I have a few cards in mind that may help you out!

Brightstone Ritual helps ramp really hard for 1 turn, and can be a really good turn 5 or 6 for you.

Goblin Chieftain, Goblin King, and Metallic Mimic all buff really well, and for cheap.

Goblin Ringleader pulls a bunch of goblins off your topdeck. Sure you may lose something, but with the deck currently being just under 30% goblins, your odds of getting at least 1 goblin is pretty good.

A Goblin Bushwhacker acts like a mini Ogre Battledriver for a turn.

Battle Squadron and Horde of Boggarts both are as large as the amount of goblins you have and come with their own evasion. It may be worth looking into them.

At first I thought this deck was about the Prossh, Skyraider of Kher+Food Chain combo. I guess I was wrong! Looks super cool. Running my own Jund Sac deck, I use some of these cards:

Mitotic Slime becomes a nightmare to deal with and provides a ton of sac creatures

Ophiomancer provides a deadly blocker that you can keep, replace, and sac if needed.

Fecundity provides awesome card draw.

Skullclamp also provides card draw.

Grave Pact is a bit of a challenge with the cost, but worth it.

Primal Vigor has the same synergy and fuction as Parallel Lives

Ogre Battledriver is insane with your general! Imagine an instant 5/1 with haste almost every turn!

FYI you also have 101 cards so I would consider dropping Languish as you want to keep your own creatures pumping. Good luck!

If you want to benefit more from your tokens maybe consider Ogre Battledriver and Hero of Bladehold, one will make your newly summoned tokens immediately combat viable and the other one brings out more tokens with every attack and boosts your already attacking ones, a cheaper alternative to hero of Bladehold is Precinct Captain. An extremely and sickeningly broken combo is Midnight Guard enchanted with Presence of Gond. Another goblin token summoning card is Dragon Fodder

You seem to have quite a large dichotomy in the deck that hurts it immensely. Do you want to put out Omnath and use his Landfall triggers to generate your army, or are you putting together an aggressive Elemental tribal and using Omnath to enhance it? If you are using the former, your lack of mana dorks and ridiculously low land count will slow you down. If you are going for the latter, your lack of card draw will cripple you. Cut out your more conditional Elementals and hand-reliant ramp spells like Chandra's Spitfire, Cinder Elemental and Explore and fit in some more basics. Omnath himself can provide plenty of pressure with Landfall tokens, so most of your creatures should either enhance his ability to win with tokens or provide good value to help you get to him, with some generally good Elementals sprinkled throughout. In this regard cards like Incandescent Soulstroke and Archetype of Aggression are good picks. I'd recommend going to at least 36 lands and fitting in some creature ramp like Karametra's Acolyte. Hammer of Purphoros and Fires of Yavimaya are good enchantments for haste, as well as Ogre Battledriver if you still want a heavy creature count. Amulet of Vigor lets you get even more value off of your ramp spells when fishing for basics and speeds up your other lands, and Shamanic Revelation and Harmonize can keep the gas on once you get going.

lagotripha I appreciate all the suggestions, I really like the idea of Brighthearth Banneret and Bramblewood Paragon, and of course the Boros Charm has a lot of utility, Goblin Bushwhacker could be nice but Ogre Battledriver gives the effect everytime. I'm also not meaning for this to be a burn deck of sorts the majority of the damage will be dealt by the creatures, at least that's how im visualizing it.

Ogre Battledriver seems a good fit. If nothing else, it'll make Ragavan bigger every time Kari attacks.

Ajuntoson on Krenko makes babies

This is very fun, although I usually see purphoros as the commander in this type of build. Either way, there are quite a few cheap cards that would greatly improve its consistency. Impact Tremors and Warstorm Surge provide value for the mass amount of tokens you'll be dropping. Goblin Assassin is a little iffy, but can be completely devastating with a couple taps of Krenko, and gets even more reliable when pared with Boggart Shenanigans or Outpost Siege (yes, tokens dieing trigger the ability). Ogre Battledriver may not be a gob, but he can make quick work of your opponent. Quest for the Goblin Lord can have a similar outcome. Finally, Stoneforge Masterwork can turn a token into a giant beatstick. That's all I can provide for budget cards, but I hope they help. Great deck.
