Signal Pest Discussion

Redace878 on Budget Robot Zoo

PickleNutz Thanks for all of the suggestions! I just have a few questions.

I understand that Puresteel Paladin is a good beater on his own, but is it worth runnning him if I only have 4 equipment in the deck?

Also, Smuggler's Copter is my only creature with evasion in this deck and I don't have to loot when I use it, it's mostly just a 3/3 flier for (that's also an artifact).

However, Signal Pest has pseudo-flying, so if I put in Cranial Plating, then it could theoretically deal some serious damage...

Maybe Signal Pest too?

I concur, manamorphose is a deck thinner/free draw and a second BT emmissary, lightning bolt is essentially a red staple in modern, and atarka's command can +1 pump your creatures, Skullcrack a lifegaining opponent, bolt them in the face and occasionally an extra land drop for speed, and Signal Pest is another affinity staple that synergizes with 8whack and Kuldotha Rebirth, alternatively there is Goblin Wardriver with the goblin subtype

IMHO you should try the 12-whack version with Signal Pest. Also i feel like playing the playset of Pact of the Titan, SSG and Street Wraith is overextending. Probably Lightning Bolt and Atarka's Command would help you more than them.

Not a goblin, but maybe Signal Pest might need a playtest.Battle cry is like bushwhackers 9 - 12

Jund isn't in a good place cause Fatal Push replaced Lightning Bolt in many decks. Rock is better at the current moment but this is just my opinion. I'm not a rock expert. Signal Pest seems out of place as well. Should have 2 or 3 Scavenging Ooze I believe.

I feel like Scuttling Doom Engine is too slow for this deck, i would run Signal Pest instead. Try Galvanic Blast instead of Lightning Bolt. Spire of Industry and Cranial Plating should be considered.

I see a lot of upgrade potential in the T2 goblin deck that I simply can't understand why they aren't included:

-Haze of Rage OBVIOUS choice here (1R Creatures you control get +1/0, Storm) with the spells and generated mana, easily replacing Insult / Injury at least.

-Signal Pest not being included is somewhat understandable, but with Kuldotha Rebirth and this kinda of game plan, it's worth serious consideration.

-Since they are all goblins and the mana is sitting at basics at the moment, splash in red/green duals (fast, shocks, fetches) to have access to Echoing Courage. Seriously, that card would be bonkers in this deck! :)

-If you go the route of green you'll also have access to Appeal / Authority, where you can give trample and huge buff (preferably on Titan) to get the damage through, and for only G.

-And, obviously, you can slow the deck down just a bit so it can be ready for sudden big swings off Atarka's Command.
