How about Barter in Blood? Also, I feel like your deck heavily relies on getting a card like Skullclamp or Harvester of Souls out because otherwise your impact is pretty minimal. Cards like Shambling Goblin need to cantrip or otherwise aren't doing anything. Also, maybe more cards along the lines of Lavaclaw Reaches, like Mutavault, that can be sacrificed if it becomes absolutely necessary.

sinewavefocus on Shambling goblin vs Festering mummy

1 year ago

Hi there,

I am wondering which out of Shambling Goblin or Festering Mummy is the better card?

On the surface they appear to do relatively the same thing, but the mummy has more permanence to its death trigger.

I ask because I never seem to see the mummy being run in any decks and wondered why that is.

I think Gravecrawler and/or Dread Wanderer have a place in this deck, probably cutting Shambling Goblin. I think this deck wants to be more aggressive, so cutting Endless Ranks of the Dead, Liliana's Mastery and Liliana, Death's Majesty (and possibly going down to 20 land) to fit it more 1-drop 2/Xs and some of the stuff from your maybeboard like Aether Vial and the hand attack suite.

Shambling Goblin can be replaced of you want with Festering Mummy since he is just a better version of it.

Hexcimal Plague Belcher looks not as good as Diregraf Captain to me. But as you said its a 3 slot and i dont know what to cut. For Cryptbreaker its pretty good but i dont know what to take out, also its discard is a bit of slow for my deck as it runs only few lands. The only place i could see him is on the Ghoulcaller's Chant slot because of its draw ability

As for Shamble Back, BioProfDude. Its OK but havent enough impact for me because Shambling Goblin makes the job much better, it kills something AND can be returned from my graveyard, also i can cast it right the way first turn and without to exile a creature from my graveyard if my opponent doesnt play any creatures.

Logics & HurricaneZach I was already thinking to add that card. I'll look into it to do what I can swap it for ;) No offense HurricaneZach but im trying to avoid red (goblin) creatures in this deck. Im trying to be different from other :)

JacobBaekgaard I really like Marsh Flitter although it isn't a goblin it would fit in here! Didnt know about the difference between Shambling Goblin & Festering Goblin so thanks for clearing that out ;) About Nantuko Husk I'll rather play Marsh Flitter because it's better in my opinion.

Thanks again everyone for helping! Ik really appreciate it!
