Skirk Fire Marshal Discussion

you need a boardwipe? Bearer of the Heavens is a good choice. yes not a goblin and yes costing 8 mana but it will intimidate the opponent from attacking with a big hitter cause if BotH dies everything goes away. but Skirk Fire Marshal and Blasphemous Act are also good choices.

I just 1v1'd my brother and his Animar, Soul of Elements deck. One glaring weakness I noticed is the lack of board-wipe in this build. I'm adding Skirk Fire Marshal and Blasphemous Act somehow. Mogg Infestation doesn't really count as a board-wipe. I may replace that with one of the two as well. It's not needed.

skirk fire marshall is can be sought with Moggcatcher, Goblin Matron, Goblin Recruiter, and Imperial Recruiter; not to mention Gamble. Blasphemous Act has a high CMC but it's offset by the amount of creatures I can produce onto the battlefield.

looks nice but as an expert goblin player (having 3 goblin commander decks) here are some changes:

switch Gauntlet of Power for Caged Sun. same effects but only affects you. not everyone else.

switch Goblin Rabblemaster with Goblin Piledriver. still gets a buff from other attacking goblins but does not force you to attack every turn with everything. plus has protection from blue. which is nice.

you got too many things that give Haste. keep Goblin Chieftain and replace Goblin Warchief with Hazoret's Monument. still reduces the cost of goblins and is one less thing to give Haste. plus lets you cycle cards if need to. also swap Fervor for Goblin Warrens or Quest for the Goblin Lord. either one works.

switch Lightning Greaves for Swiftfoot Boots. that way you can still play spells and abilities on your creature while the opponent cannot.

i can see why you put Skullclamp into the deck but sadly creature tokens don't go to the graveyard so it won't trigger the ability. i know, i tried it with Sylvok Lifestaff. that being said replace it with a Prying Blade. or if you need the card draw Rogue's Gloves.

i don't know why you have Treasonous Ogre in there but unless you can crank your life up each turn he will drain you. i suggest Tyrant's Familiar. a 5/5 flyer with haste and if your commander is in play, which he most likely is, gets another +2/+2 and can shoot a creature when he attacks. if 7 mana is too much then Goblin Sappers to make your creatures unblockable at the cost of their life.

you don't need both Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar. both cost 3 mana and both let you sack creatures for mana. drop the Phyrexian Altar. replace it with Coat of Arms. or if you really need the extra mana Pyramid of the Pantheon

Ruination. i'll admit i am on the fence about this. on one hand you can destroy all non-basic lands (even yours) but on the other it is useless if Blood Moon is in play. if you drop it, Massive Raid should take it's place.

Skirk Fire Marshal. this guy. while yes he is a great card he will blow everything and everyone up after tapping like 10-15 goblins. and yes Eldrazi Monument gives your creatures indestructible it does not give you indestructible. so if you have less life than the opponent then this is a bad card. so keep him but if he gets out of hand then put in Goblin Spymaster he may seem odd at first but by forcing your opponent to attack you you can block the attacks with several dozen tokens and have enough for a counter attack. just be careful with flyers.

Tuktuk Scrapper. without other allies he is just another 2/2 goblin. and 4 mana is a bit much for a plain 2/2 goblin (no offense Goblin Berserker). switch him with Goblin Mountaineer. a good scout goblin and is unblockable if Blood Moon is active and opponent has any non-basic lands.

land wise you need to drop the following and replace them with either Mountain or Snow-Covered Mountain:

Ancient Tomb. again, unless your life cranks up drastically each turn it will drain you.

Hall of the Bandit Lord. same reason.

Haunted Fengraf. the creature you get back is random and only a one time thing. not worth it.

Tectonic Edge. if you have Blood Moon in play then there will be no non-basic lands making this useless.

Well it took a really long time, but I finally got Skirk Fire Marshal and Basilisk Collar out at the same time the other night. 4 players and 8 creatures hit for total of 120 health gained. Went from probably being the first player to die (Reaper King and Grenzo decks at the table and a Coat of Arms out), to winning the game the turn after with just a few Goblins created by Ib after the wipe.

This deck is never not fun to play. I love it.

Have you ever thought about putting Skirk Fire Marshal into the deck. I see you already have a Basilisk Collar

I can't shake the feeling I have that I am short by one or two solid sac outlets for Goblin tokens. I've felt this way since I removed Ashnod's Altar, not that I think bringing it back would help. There have been a few instances where more sac outlets would have increased by chances of drawing one, which makes it easier to shape a Blasphemous Act, Skirk Fire Marshal, or Repercussion into a game winning play.

Looking forward to Dominaria in the hopes that I get something that unintentionally buffs Ib, as I don't think WotC is ever going to do something like that on purpose, haha.

If anyone knows a good sac (creature or permanent) outlet that would tie into the deck well (think Goblin Sledder), please speak up so that Ib can say that it was his idea in the first place and he was just waiting for you to draw inspiration from him!
