Hesher on Ayara Combo Drain

Either that or Sling-Gang Lieutenant as it's a bit of a mixed bag given it generated Red goblins so you only get 1 Ayara activation off her. Although I can understand it's another outlet for Nim, I would be inclined to think 4cmc for it is a bit high for how little it's doing being the only goblin card in the deck.

The Goblin Matron into Sling-Gang Lieutenant has been one of my favorite clutch finishers.

Highly recommend Key to the City and Rogue's Passage , with a taste of Metallic Mimic to make redcap work still. Worse case scenario, if you don't have a ton of counters, Solemnity also works. Viscera Seer to hunt for your combo faster and Grenzo, Dungeon Warden , to really mess with people. Yahenni, Undying Partisan is a good free sac outlet to bounce things in and out of the yard. If you went into a heavier goblin combo, you can have Sling-Gang Lieutenant and Pashalik Mons as a good way to get some recursion and partial pinging damage, Same with Judith, the Scourge Diva . Chainer, Nightmare Adept is a good inclusion as well if that would be something you'd be interested in.

Speaking of Ashnod's Altar , it does wonders with Nim Deathmantle to generate infinite tokens (and thus infinite sacrifices and colorless mana). I like to call those two token my infinite sac engine, and then you feed it any creature that spawns 2+ tokens when it enters (even something simple like Sling-Gang Lieutenant which actual goes for the infinite win)

Vormi, Earth Tender

Legendary Creature- Wurm

You may exile 8 creature cards from your graveyard and pay rather than play Vormi's mana cost.

Trample. Vormi can't be blocked by more than one creature.

Whenever Vormi, Earth Tender attacks, create X 1/1 black and green Worm creature tokens, where X is the number of lands in your graveyard.


Create the vehicle from any one of these cards- Battle Squadron , Mizzix of the Izmagnus , Sling-Gang Lieutenant , or Goblin Test Pilot (sorry for stealing your request Ziusdra.)

Gazdrazil, Arachnawakener Matriarch

Legendary Creature - Spider Shaman

Reach, deathtouch, lifelink, vigilance

Delve, convoke

At the beginning of each upkeep, if Gazdrazil, Arachnawakener Matriarch is in the command zone, create a 1/2 green spider creature token with reach. It deals 1 damage to you.

For each spider creature card tapped or exiled to pay this creature's delve and convoke costs, you lose 1 life and put the top card of your library into your graveyard.

5 / 8

I have always wanted an Abzan spider legendary for my spider token deck. Arachnogenesis and Spider Spawning are my clutch win cons

Create the vehicle depicted in any of the following cards: Battle Squadron , Mizzix of the Izmagnus , or Sling-Gang Lieutenant . (and if you do Sling-Gang, don't just do a reprint of Goblin Bombardment but make it more interesting. Bonus points if equally hilarious.)

The Little Boy Who Cried

Legendary Creature - Human

When The Little Boy Who Cried enters the battlefield, Call 3.

0 / 1



Response - Create a 2/2 wolf creature token. Any player may tap a creature they control to counter this response.

I think I understand the ability? For some reason it's a little difficult to wrap my mind around how it triggers, especially when the call and response are on the same card. It essentially creates a trigger that triggers itself? I think CrowMutini means for the calls and response to be on separate cards.

New challenge: Create the vehicle depicted in any of the following cards: Battle Squadron , Mizzix of the Izmagnus , or Sling-Gang Lieutenant . (if you do Sling-Gang, don't just do a reprint of Goblin Bombardment .

Alternatively, if you feel you have something REALLY good and you grasp the mechanic really well, create another card with call/response that makes the mechanic really shine.

I was thinking of old krenko, from back when I was still mucking about with goblin lists.

For rakdos aggro, Munitions Expert is the most important as (functionally) extra copies of Goblin Grenade . Earwig Squad and Sling-Gang Lieutenant somewhere in the 75.

Run some tests with spike jester and see if you like it there- I've played it in the past and its fine. Not amazing, just fine. Jund Hackblade is similar, but more conditional, and Goblin Deathraiders is bad. Thats the multicolour goblins covered- its quite unexciting. Mad Auntie is a lord that doesn't offer evasion, and is therefore better as any of the red lords, but might be worth it in a hyper-budget list.

Auntie's Snitch and Squee, Goblin Nabob are an interesting card advantage engine (which is hated out by the same cards as dredge), but can make for a fun Zombie Infestation list. Stinkdrinker Bandit would be good if enough good goblin rogues existed. Warren Weirding is an interesting hybrid removal/token spell, but still sub-par.

With the meta up in the air as far as competitive modern goes, I don't feel too confident getting more specific than 'playtest'.

Stoneforge means plans for a t3 Batterskull are a must, as well as a plan for Ensnaring Bridge (hence me looking at Angrath's Rampage or Rakdos Charm ), but past that just playtest and see what you like. See if any rakdos burn lists show up on a metagame site for you to pinch the sideboard/spells from.

I mean, I'm someone who'd see if Skirk Prospector / Knucklebone Witch / Experimental Frenzy was playable. I'm not sure you should be taking advice from me.
