Raid Bombardment Discussion

Jimmy_Chinchila: Thanks Jimmy!

I will go through the suggestions one by one, but most of the answers are because of CMC.

Mutavault - I run very, very few non-basic lands because part of the deck is trying to punish the decks that run a lot of them. Even when I ran 20 nonbasic lands I ran into a lot of problems with not having enough mountains to sacrifice to Ib, which also makes it hard to cast a Price of Progress without killing myself, you get a lot of bad interactions with Blood Moon and Blood Sun, and I just can't capitalize on an extra 2/2, it just makes it a land that is easier to hit with spot removal.

Metallic Mimic - While it wouldn't be a bad card at all, I try really hard to keep my Goblins under 2/2 as much as possible, so that I can take advantage of Raid Bombardment and Shared Animosity at the same time. Also, the bigger the individual Goblins get, the closer they are to doing reduced damage when blocked if they are above a 4/4, or not being blocked at all which makes it harder for me to use a lot of the blocking tricks that I have. You also look like less of a threat (temporarily) when you only have a table full of 1/1's.

Stoneforge Masterwork - I had this in the deck at one point, but it has the same problem that Reckless One and Battle Squadron have, that they might be a 40/40, but if they are blocked when Ib is out they only do 4 damage. It is a pretty good form of protection to put on Ib himself, but I would rather give him hexproof or shroud instead. I can do a fair bit of toughness buffing with Goblin Sledder when needed.

Obelisk of Urd - Same as Mutavault, I don't really want to buff the individual Goblins up. The Convoke is a great selling point though, so this could be a meta choice for someone building the deck.

Door of Destinies - This card is great if two things happens: You get it down early, and you actually cast a lot of your creatures. I've never gotten this card down early in my other tribal decks, and it has no impact if you draw it late game. I would look more towards Coat of Arms and waiting as long as possible to play it, so that it has a profound effect the instant it gets played, instead of just speeding up the whole game if other tribal decks are at the table. Second, I don't cast more than two or three Goblins per game on average, so that would be a lot of work for a little buff. That's why I only have kind of a bare bones of either Goblin token generators, or utility Goblins, so no matter what I draw into I can build something out of it. It's why I don't have any Goblins that I actually attack with, outside of Goblin Lackey and Warren Instigator, the rest are mostly meant to sit there and provide a buff or a combat tweak. I have a few friends that play tribal decks with Door and have a lot of success with it, it's just never performed that well for me.

Caged Sun - I don't need the mana doubler for anything (I always have extra, it's cards in hand that I need), so I would be paying the 6 CMC only for the +1/+1. Definitely a tribal staple, but I have a hard time with anything over 4 mana when I am trying to keep the Average CMC of the deck as low as possible to help make rebuilding after a wipe a lot faster.

Swiftfoot Boots - I've actually been thinking about this for a little more targetted haste, and protection for Ib/Krenko/King/Warchief/Feldon etc...Adding this to the sideboard until I can find a spot for it.

Elixir of Immortality - While mono-red definitely suffers from lack of recursion, I haven't been able to get Elixir to work how I wanted. I generally spend all game trying to get all of my lands out of my library, so that I am only drawing into spells or creatures, but if I sacrifice a bunch of lands and then sac the Elixir, I'll be drawing a bunch of lands late game, which would be like starting the game over for me, but no one else at the table. I do want to see if I can play around it on purpose though (like how I use Surveyor's Scope to great effect now), and not just use it as an Emergency Button, in which case I would put it in place of Feldon of the Third Path because that is the job he is trying to do, but has a hard time with.

Thanks a lot for your suggestions!

KillJoyChief: It is a ton of fun to play!

I spent a lot of time working on finding a balance of buffs that didn't make me leery of sacrificing Goblins. I think the biggest things that helped with that was Raid Bombardment and Shared Animosity. Goblin Chieftain and Goblin King do a good job of making a few tokens feel more impactful, but Bombardment and Animosity manage to do it without making them feel indispensable.

I'm really happy with where the deck has ended up, as it is really rare that I don't have a huge impact on every game, even the ones I don't win.

Goblin Bushwhacker definitely fits with your scheme here, consider replacing wardrivers or a chieftain for some since it is either cheaper or gives haste. Mogg Fanatic used to be a staple until they changed the rules for combat damage/activated ability stacking, but still worth considering since you can sac at will unlike arsonist if you don't draw a goblin grenade.

Quest for the Goblin Lord might be a great 1 drop for you since you will stack it up quickly. Alternatively, you could build Raid Bombardment and make sure not to kick your goblins above 2 damage, then blocking a ton of tokens won't really matter.

If you plan on keeping chieftains in, perhaps consider replacing some with Goblin Rabblemaster. It gets a less powerful piledriver style buff while pumping tokens which will help feed your overwhelm.

Searing Blaze?

Dusk isn't really useful here, Dawn is, but you can get cheaper cards that have just the Dawn effect. Since you're placing a ton of counters on your stuff, Dusk will become a wrath of God, or in some cases, a one-sided board wipe only affecting you. ('Cause y'know [Primer] Doran the Unstoppable exists)

Maybe remove the "vanilla" vampires, primarily Falkenrath Reaver. I also don't feel as though you should run anything but Vampires, as Markov prefers vampires over anything, so Pious Evangel and Mentor of the Meek might be worth taking another look at. (Evangel might work, but I don't think you can make enough mana for Mentor to be that useful)

On to card suggestions!

Legion's Landing  Flip

Rootborn Defenses

Cathars' Crusade

Teferi's Protection

Kindred Charge

Blasphemous Act

Eldrazi Monument

Impact Tremors/Goblin Bombardment/Raid Bombardment/Pandemonium

Skullclamp

(I can't actually suggest any of these cards, 'cause according to tapped out, everything but basic lands in banned in Leviathan. I swing at you for lethal with 3 mountains and a swamp, lol)

@Funkydiscogod Thanks for the suggestions! :) I do like the idea of Raid Bombardment and/or Avenger of Zendikar - I'll add them to the "Maybe Board" for future investigation.

What about Raid Bombardment and Avenger of Zendikar? You can sacrifice the Sakura-Tribe Elder after you attack, to pump them up before damage.

What about Genesis Chamber and Norin the Wary or Saltskitter for a big token-generating engine?

What about Perilous Forays and Emeria Angel or Seed the Land to generate the ETB effects for the tremors?

I don't know, I'm just brainstorming. I like the deck, though.
