Possessed Portal Discussion

good you nudged me again ;-)
The deck feels abit slow. So I would suggest you gather some extra ramp/rocks and revamp your landbase abt. You have the colors to do this very effectively. I would be suggesting:
- Golgari Signet
- Green Sun's Zenith with Dryad Arbor (X=0)
- Ancient Tomb
- Remove a several lands that enter tapped. They slow you down alot. Replace them with fetch lands like Bloodstained Mire, Misty Rainforest and such...
- Raiders' Wake is very limited for a cmc of 4. You better want to cast something more impactfull.
- Vampiric Tutor as an extra tutor is a good catch
- Cursed Totem is a great Stax piece vs. many EDH decks
- Possessed Portal functions as a good finisher. As long as you have several cards that trick cards in your hand without calling it 'draw' (Necropotence, Dark Confidant...)
If you have any questions, then let me know. If you use Discord, then this is a great MtG place too: Discord MtG chat

It seems like you're going more on a sacrifice theme at times with the sacrificing goblins and heavy gravepact effects. I would recommend curbing those for a bit more discard effects to work with archfiend of ifnir Archfiend of Ifnir and having a bit more cards that let you discard with the other players. Otherwise, the list is great, though I would probably go without skirk prospector and grab phyrexian altarPhyrexian Altar as a replacement, since it would be getting the same effect but give you more options and let you repeat it without the one card, especially since you don't have any other goblins. I actually love the theme (I'm working on something VERY similar right now myself) The flicker needs to be more heavily in there if you want to work with the purphoros, that or token generation. A 'fun' combo I found for the deck which might be worth trying is necropotenceNecropotence and possessed portalPossessed Portal. Kiki JikiKiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker could work well with hellhole rats, priest of gix, and priest of urabrask, as well as help a little with purphoros damage. Lastly, it might just be my playgroup but some exile would be handy, like dark impostorDark Impostor or vraskas contemptVraska's Contempt just in case of indestructible shenanigans. Another good card to recur creatures is Phyrexian Reclamation Phyrexian Reclamation
TLDR; As it stands adjustments IN: Phyrexian reclamation, Kiki Jiki?, dark imposter/vraskas contempt OUT: Skirk Prospector, Dictate/Grave/Butcher(only 1 removed)
Of course, these are just my own opinions, you might have thought about some of these and already figured what is better. I'd appreciate you letting me know if you have any response to my feedback. Enjoy the completed deck!

Trinisphere sideboard? Bottled Cloister to stick bridge? Defense Grid to fight disruption? Storage Matrix can somtimes work, but its a meta call. Mirror of Fate and a doomsday wincon in your sideboard? Pithing Needle/Sorcerous Spyglass card blanking? Lots of fun stuff out there. I'm just trying to figure out a Possessed Portal/Goblin Rabblemaster deck.

Unfortunately, this combo still doesn't do what you think it does. While you are able to choose to apply Shared Fate instead of Possessed Portal, your opponents are as well. When there are multiple replacement effects for one effect, the affected object's owner or affected player chooses in which order to apply them. Because of this, your opponents would decide whether to skip their draw or draw from opponent's library.

elgosu1337, actually it does work. Both are draw replacement effects. Since you control both permanents, you decide the order to apply the replacements (and since the first one changes it to not be a draw, the second one doesn't work). So you can choose to have Shared Fate replace your draws, but Possessed Portal replace your opponents, allowing you to draw their cards while preventing them from drawing yours (not that you have many in your library to draw anyway).
It's a similar situation to the combo between Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar and Possessed Portal, where you can order the draw replacement effects to let you ignore the portal while your opponents cannot.

@I_TappedWrong - We will hold off on the Esper walker as it was leaked, not spoiled.
@thegigibeast - You're right. I misevaluated the card. While I saw the infinite mana outlet, I focused too much on the "any player" part.
