Skirk Prospector Discussion

mghadley on Krenko Cloner

Skirk Prospector is definitely a good 1 drop, It would be nice to have another 1 drop in addition to Legion Loyalist

I have been checking around my local stores for Impact Tremors and cant wait to get my hands on them.

And you're right, I've been thinking Puppet Strings Voltaic Servant is clumsy/out of place, I'm in favor of Renegade Tactics or some burn spells for sure.

Thanks for your input.

I love the pauper project, the names are awesome and many of them seem to have an incredible level of synergy. I'm ordering some of my faves this weekend along with 4 x Impact Tremors

You could replace the Sol Ring s and The Flame of Keld s with Skirk Prospector for a good turn 1 play. It also has good synergy with Tuktuk.

And yes, please please please put Impact Tremors in this deck!

Also, perhaps consider replacing the Puppet String and Voltaic Servant combo with 4x Renegade Tactics , to simply avoid problem creatures and draw a card. Otherwise maybe Lightning Bolt or Lightning Strike to burn most things away (after combat damage, too, if you have to, when their creatures are weakest).

+1 for playing Goblins! And thanks for all the pauper love on my decks!

SamsWrath on Grenzo, Dungeon Warden - Doomsday

3 days ago

DiverDown, with Grenzo already in play it takes 5 total mana (3 of which must be Black) to cast Doomsday and combo out.

The piles are flexible.

Priest of Gix or Priest of Urabrask or Overeager Apprentice + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker (tap to make a copy of the priest) + Goblin Sledder or Mogg Raider (sac to itself to give Grenzo +1/+1 until the end of turn) + Zealous Conscripts (untap Kiki and make infinite Conscripts)

Priest of Gix or Priest of Urabrask or Overeager Apprentice + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker (tap to make a copy of the priest) + Skirk Prospector + Murderous Redcap (sac Redcap and Kiki to Prospector and with Redcap's Persist trigger on the stack use Grenzo's ability again) + Metallic Mimic (the +1/+1 from Mimic will cancel out -1/-1 from redcap's persist for infinite direct damage when sacrificed to Prospector).

TheGeneralAdvisor thank you very much for your considerations, you have given me a lot of food for thought.

I agree with your view that Wheel of Fate probably doesn’t earn the place. The more tuned the deck has become, the more suspend has been situational (need to cast it in the first few turns otherwise it’s a dead card). This might be a good cut to try Apex of Power . My only reservation is ten mana is a significant investment as would normally be expecting to win (or have been knocked out) by then. Certainly worth trying though!

If I could afford a Gauntlet of Might I would definitely swap out Extraplanar Lens . I have lost count the number of times that it has ramped me to a win when the early game had been thwarted. I also plan to pick up a Grim Monolith just to tune/speed the deck up a bit.

Goblin Bushwhacker is always cast for its kicker cost as a 2-mana, single turn haste enabler to combo off. Goblin Ringleader is a holdover from when it was more tribal based deck, and your probably right it needs removing. Moggcatcher is there to tutor up Skirk Prospector or one of the haste enabling goblins. With this list’s lack of tutors, I would definitely think she earns the spot to stay.

I used to run Aggravated Assault , but took it out to lower the curve. Now that the deck has lots of ways to produce infinite mana, I think it may be worth testing again.

I have tried Anger but could never consistently get it in the bin and don’t have space to dedicate for it to work. Hopefully a more efficient haste enabler than Ogre Battledriver comes in time and I will drop it.

I love the idea of extra turns, it’s not something I have given any thought to. I have picked up both Final Fortune and Last Chance and will start playtesting!

Thank you so much man, your comment was awesome!

Have you seem what Grenzo can do with Doomsday ? Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Zealous Conscripts is an excellent infinite that is part of the DD pile but, can also be fired independent of DD. Metallic Mimic + Murderous Redcap + a sac out like Skirk Prospector is another awesome infinite table kill that can be fired with or without DD.

Doomsday is the ultimate tutor for Grenzo. Its synergy with Grenzo's ability allows you to cut straight to your winning combo!

Optimator on krenko gobbos

I would highly recommend a bit more card-draw and a few untappers. Krenko does amazing with a few untappers.

Magewright's Stone is good. Thousand-Year Elixir is great too. Umbral Mantle is decent. Puppet Strings is good on a budget. Illusionist's Bracers are a good choice too. You don't need to go nuts but having three or so untappers in the 99 will serve you well. If you can tutor up Skirk Prospector, Krenko can go infinite with Thornbite Staff, though it just recently spiked in price.

Good red card draw is rare but every EDH deck needs a little. Reforge the Soul, Faithless Looting, Cathartic Reunion, Outpost Siege, Mind's Eye, Skullclamp, and Wild Guess are good. Staff of Nin is good on a budget too.

You have almost no ramp at all. Goblins are pretty low to the ground but every deck needs a little ramp. Krenko usually has a bulls-eye on his back so you'll want to be able to recast him. Sol Ring, Worn Powerstone, Fire Diamond, Mind Stone, Darksteel Ingot, Coldsteel Heart, Hedron Archive, Ur-Golem's Eye, and Gilded Lotus might be good places to start.

I would highly recommend dropping all the combat tricks. In a multiplayer setting with increased life totals they just don't have the "oomf" that they do in regular 60-card formats.

I would also drop Hedron Blade, Stormrider Rig, Claws of Valakut, Goblin War Paint, and Messenger's Speed. No good in EDH. War Horn is decent for Krenko but there are better cards out there so if things get tight you can drop it easily enough.

Vaxfantomen on Zomblins ~ Standard Infinite Aristocrats

1 week ago

Altagrave ~ Its skill on its early draft, got many ideas going on right now and jumping between decks ^^

But how it work is that you have Liliana, Untouched By Death -3 + Arcane Adaptation (zombie) + Pitiless Plunderer out and you cast Fanatical Firebrand zombifyed and ping your opponent to death. Each time you do Pitiless Plunderer will create a treasure token to recast Fanatical Firebrand with. Skirk Prospector is the same idea but you kill itself to recast it while leaveing a treasure token behind. The funny part about that is that you can net the mana needed to cast other zombiefied combopieces in the graveyard.

Fun stuff! It might be cool to squeeze some quick 1 CMC Goblins like Skirk Prospector (which could also give you another way to create land), Mogg Fanatic (which could also give you another way of directly damaging a creature or player, or some good old fashioned Goblin Guides; and also throwing in some Goblin Grenades.
