Skullcrack Discussion

greatdevourer on Watch the World Burn

Here are some suggestions off the top of my head. You are at 63 cards. And I'm fairly sure we've had the 60 card discussion before. :D

Consider the following changes:
-1 Bomber Corps
-1 Lightning Strike
-1 Thunderous Wrath
That drops you to 60 without any major changes to the the deck.

Here are some other cards I want you to consider:
Crash Through and Faithless Looting for card draw.
You are going to need a sideboard for more competitive environments. And the sideboard also works for testing maybe cards. Take a look at Legion Loyalist, Stonewright, Tormod's Crypt, Electrostatic Bolt, Smelt, Shattering Spree, Shattering Blow, Monastery Swiftspear, Skullcrack, Collateral Damage, Barrage of Expendables, Pyrite Spellbomb and Searing Blood as either main or sideboard cards.

Sideboard suggestion:
3 Tormod's Crypt
3 Smelt
2 Searing Blood
2 Slagstorm
2 Shattering Blow
3 ???, not sure on this one.

Let me know what you think.

Wynasty84 How fun, welcome to the game! I may not be the best player there is, but if you ever have any questions, feel free to ask me!

One other goblin suggestions that you should consider is Goblin King, he's great against red decks so he makes good SB material. I would decrease your Krenkos to 2x, since you won't be able to have more than one of him in play at the same time, and tempo is really important in a goblin deck! You should aim to win at turn 4, everything later than that and your opponent will have the upper hand and your only way to win past that will be to draw a Goblin Grenade or have som other burn. I would replace Collateral Damage entirely with Lightning Bolts!, since they won't sacrifice your poor little Gobbos. If you need more burn than that i would recommend Skullcrack or Searing Blood. I would probably cut Hordeling Outburst since turn 3 you like something that attacks directly or gives a boost to the rest of your goblins. I had Krenko's Command in my goblin deck earlier, but replaced it with Mogg War Marshal, since it's a bit more resilient against sweepers and if you cast it at turn 3 or later it's a perfect target for the grenade. I would probably cut Reverberate, too since it's a card that doesn't do anything on it's own, which can be problematic if you're playing a fast deck.

Please tell me how Contested War Zone works in the deck! I've been thinking about adding it to my goblin deck, but I'm afraid that the colorless mana will be a prolem, so I'm interested in knowing if it's good :)

I have to say I like any decent Counterspell, Impulse, Swords to Plowshares, Brainstorm (a personal favorite of mine), Skullcrack, Atarka's Command...I know there are quite a bunch of them, but those are some of my favorites.

Have you considered adding Goblin Rabblemaster, Goblin Wardriver, Mogg War Marshal (Great with Impact Tremors!) or Legion Loyalist? All of them are really good. If you have some extra money you definitely should get 4x Goblin Guide. Also get some Lightning Bolts for burn and have Skullcrack in SB against decks with life gain. One fun gimmick in my goblin deck is Quest for the Goblin Lord, you'd be amazed how often you get 5 quest counters on it! If you have a legion loyalist out as well you basically win. I don't really see what Throne of the God-Pharaoh contributes to the deck?

I would suggest adding a few creatures. Cards like Monastery Swiftspear are pretty good. Also, Skullcrack can pull its weight if looking for a way to prevent life gain. They are a little more expensive than cards you currently have, but not too bad. Depends on your budget I suppose.

I'd strongly recommend running some number of Lava Spikes, Searing Blazes, Eidolon of the Great Revels, and Skullcracks. Blue doesn't really add a lot to your deck, and I would at least consider removing it entirely. Cyclonic Rift and Keranos, God of Storms are both too slow for Modern, and more burn spells would really help your deck.

Hey Bovine073!
First, sorry I missed your earlier comment. Congrats on the 3-1! Also, sorry for never getting back to you on Tireless Tracker ... bottom line is I think Chameleon Colossus is still just a little better, but it's VERY close. Here's the list I tested and some match-up info: Tireless Ponza.

On Kitchen Finks though, I think the card is great in the abstract, but I don't personally like it much. Partly it's just meta call ... there's a little more Control than Aggro in my meta. But I think it's mostly just my personal play-style ... I'm ALWAYS happy to see him, but I'm sometimes unhappy to cast him ... it just seems to draw WAY more Atarka's Commands and Skullcracks from the other side of the table than I prefer :-(

Spijker ran 4x Finks in the main though, and while that's the only competitive deck I've ever seen that did, it's clearly a decent choice.

Yeah, I look forward to trying Carnage Tyrant too. I think it's totally a meta call on what to pull ... keep Colossus for a meta that's heavier on Black or Go-big and Thrag' for everything else. If you end up trying full Dinoponza though, keep Regisaur Alpha in mind too. I don't honestly think it's good enough. But it plays well with Colossus for sure! :-)

One final thought, in case you're not already aware: Moonbar started a subreddit for us over at r/PonzaMTG. It's a small but very active community ... would love you to drop by if you haven't already!

Draw well!

Skullcrack is always an ideal sideboard for burn.

If you find that you can usually get your Vexing Devil out, I recommend Renegade Tactics to help swing through and maintain card advantage.
