Skirk Prospector Discussion

Hey sabba5600. I've seen Mana Echoes a lot lately. It definitely could be fun, seeing as there's a lot of mana to be gain.


I don't run enough goblins for Skirk Prospector to work his magic with. Same with Moggcatcher, I ended up replacing him for Gamble.


Myr Battlesphere was a great card, but a fellow commenter got me to thinking to change him with Knollspine Dragon for more draw power. Since the deck already has about 25% cards making tokens, it wouldn't hurt to think about the problem which is draw power. It's still a great card, though.


Hmm, I'm not too interested in infinite combos in this deck, but I might have to put that in the "infinite combo section". Thanks for the ideas!

I've been recommended Thornbite Staff many times for that combo, but I've always turned it down for the fact that it really only does work with other cards.

All of my combo pieces thus far can pull a lot of weight on their own (e.g. Mana Echoes, or even Skirk Prospector) but unlock even more power in their respective combos. Thornbite Staff just doesn't pull enough weight on it's own, in my opinion.

I thank you for stopping by and leaving me your suggestion, Maizena!

I built a very similar list a month or so back and here is some of my favorite cards for the deck.

Mana Echoes <-- absolutely stupid amounts of mana can come off of this card
Skirk Prospector more mana, Moggcatcher goblin tutor, Myr Battlesphere 10 damage please, Flameshadow Conjuring copy any of your token producing creatures for one red.........

scheerlc8520 This deck is meant to include as many of the combos I can so that way I can opening hand start with 2/3 of the pieces and draw or tutor into the other. Its a strong 1v1 deck and reliably goes off by turn 4 or 5. Skirk Prospector and Umbral Mantle are a couple good pieces but having more than one card that does the same thing increases your chances of hitting the combos consistently.

As far as the price tag... this is on the cheaper side of competitive edh. The cavern, blood moon, and Goblin guide are not absolutely needed but sure do help in certain match ups. Thanks for the feedback.

My krenko deck Mob boss edh is probably just as effective and it costs so much less. Why do you use complex combos when all it really takes is a couple mana sources and untap outlets such as Skirk Prospector and Umbral Mantle

I'd suggest Umbral Mantle. Hard-paying for an extra activation of your commander's ability is well worth it, as he grows your ranks exponentially. It also combos with Skirk Prospector or Mana Echoes for infinite mana, creatures, and power on your commander. (Also could consider Sword of the Paruns for redundancy)

Mana Echoes by itself is a solid card in the deck. With only 3 goblins, including your commander, you net 15 colorless mana by activating his ability. If you have 5, you're getting 45. Colorless isn't everything, but it does help.

If you wanna bring it into the semi-competitive range, or possibly even competitive, I'd suggest Umbral Mantle as well.
