Skullcrack Discussion

Splashing green for Atarka's Command in place of Skullcrack has proved to be very effective

Searing Blaze is better than Skullcrack. You have Atarka's Command to replace Skullcrack.

Here are some things you want to work on:

1-How to play the deck. Sounds simple enough, but what about saving those Skullcracks for when they get a Kor Firewalker out and block your Goblin Guide? You need to talk about these things

2- Card choices. Explain why this card fits over another one. Explain your options available to the build. Eidolon of the Great Revel deserves an explanation, because a lot of newer players don't understand why it is so good.

3- Sideboarding and matchups. Explain the good and bad matchups of the deck, and how to side against anything that might cause you problems.

Here's an idea of how you might want the finished product to look: 2015 B/W Token Primer (my own primer for b/w tokens)

@ TheHroth I had forgotten about Skullcrack as a way to deal with protection, thanks! I think I will mess around with some Subterranean Scouts, too.

I feel like Subterranean Scout would be better than Goblin Shortcutter, but both would ideally serve the purpose of letting Goblin Piledriver swing in for massive amounts. Regarding Goblin Tunneler, I think you'd rather be attacking with your goblins in most situations, so I'm not sold on the idea of it.

I'd definitely pick up some Dismembers, or save yourself some life and use Skullcrack against pro-red dudes. Or both.

I would sideboard Skullcrack since the main match up this would be useful is abzan and twin sisters but I don't know your local meta so that just a suggestion tho.

Cut 2 Skullcrack for 2 Grim Lavamancer as lavamancer let's you reuse all your burn spells. Also cut 1 land 2 Lightning Helix and 1 Searing Blaze for 4 Rift Bolt.

I personally second the idea of cutting 2 Skullcrack for 2 Grim Lavamancer. It locks down certain matchups and it can deal damage without attacking.
