Squee, Goblin Nabob Discussion
1 day ago
I have found Genesis to be a bit on the slow side [though its been a pet card of mine since it came out]
How crucial is Squee, Goblin Nabob to the deck? I've tried him in other decks for his auto recursion and only found he was marginally useful if I was out of cards... which segways into how much are Mindslicer and Sire Of Insanity part of your gameplan? I'm not a player that particularly likes living hellbent but others don't mind so I'm asking... I'd probably pick one to keep if it is as you have enough ways to tutor for/recur your remaining target. I'd probably cut the Sire as the discard doesn't trigger until end step.
I hear you on the Tempt with Discovery . It can depend on whether the table knows how to play against it or not. If they don't, its amazing, if everyone declines its an overcosted search for one land, or if everyone searches up strips/wastelands, if pretty much reads 'spend 3 to pull your best utility lands out of your deck and dump them in your 'yard'.

Hey! Great deck! I'm looking to build a similar Ib deck, and was surprised that you have almost no goblin token generators (excluding Krenko, Mob Boss/Beetleback Chief/Goblin Goliath). Are you creating tokens by tutoring for Krenko most of the time? I was thinking this would need a bit of a token swarm to be threatening. Any thoughts there? Thanks!

I would think that Squee, Goblin Nabob would be better for that, and that still would be too clunky. Phoenix just doesn’t do enough for a three mana spell in Modern. A 2/2 for 3 isn’t going to cut it in a deck that’s trying to fire up multiple 3/2s in a single turn.

Made a lot of edits, also ordered a Sanguine Bond which will probably make it's way into the deck but most current list is now here: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/olivia-voldaren-mobilized/#c3415503 . Currently just using a Sanitarium Skeleton as a placeholder for Squee, Goblin Nabob XD. You're totally right about avoiding that infinite combo, it'd either work just once or it'd just make me the target of the other 3 players in game 2.

Wow, Expropriate is wild! That'd go nicely in my Lazav, Dimir Mastermind deck. Definitely expensive though. I might prefer Insurrection in your deck, for the fact it needs creativity to permanently steal their creatures (I like that challenge) - but they are both nuts in there. I see what you mean about Razaketh, the Foulblooded, and the lag to play one of those other two after you search for them...
...If that's the win-con package, maybe some passive ramping could help? A couple examples of what I mean would be Pitiless Plunderer and Black Market. I run both those in my Ghave, Guru of Spores to great effect. A Ruthless Knave, rather than the plunderer, offers a sac engine while creating two treasure tokens. Not efficient enough for this deck I think, but more for inspiration :). He offers a mana sink if you find yourself with extra mana in the first 5-6 turns and helps you position yourself for 1 big turn.
Maybe, after playing this version a bit, swapping your high cmc for Grave Betrayal and some one sided board wipes like Plague Wind could be an interesting take to try out?
I put an Unspeakable Symbol in mine as well. Seems like it was made for her, taking your life below your opponents while putting on the counters. I dream of having it out in this "Steal Yo Gurl!" style, with a Champion of Stray Souls on the battlefield. If the sequencing and mana could work... Value town.
In regards to the version I'm working on: We have a lower level player in our playgroup who doesn't quite have the cards or the know-how for stronger deck building. I wanted to make something less powerful than Kresh and Ghave, for playing him while still enjoying myself. Madness is a really fun mechanic I'm building around with a lot of trigger opportunities through the draw, discard to cast, and different recursion. Such great value, just not the power. Madness fits naturally with the Innistrad vampires that get +1/+1 counters for dealing damage. Great synergy with Marchesa and it's letting me play interesting cards, including some sweet old commons, that I probably wouldn't play otherwise (ex: Bog Witch). Cards like Archfiend of Ifnir and Squee, Goblin Nabob become elite. I'll let you know when a version is online.
