If combo is your jam, the classic wincon is to get ol' Marrow-Gnawer a Thornbite Staff and spawn infinite rat tokens.

First of all you want some untappers like Seedborn Muse or Samut, Voice of Dissent to make more than 1 token each turn. Then some sac outlets like Goblin Bombardment and Ashnod's Altar to sacrifice you tokens whenever you want to get your dinos on the field and do dmg or get mana. If you add an eldrazi Titan to reshuffle your grave and 3 more cards you get the said infinite combos.

  • Thornbite Staff + Ashnod's Altar lets you produce infinite eggs and put all your creatures on the table. Cycling an eldrazi titan over and over kills with burning suns triggers.

  • Runed Stalactite + Ashnod's Altar lets you cycle through your deck until you find the desired creature or killed everyone with burning suns triggers.

  • Runed Stalactite + Mirror Entity also kills the table with burning suns triggers when you activate entity for 0 just often enough by holding priority.

  • Mirror Entity + Ashnod's Altar lets you cycle again through your deck similar to stalactite and altar combo while also producing infinite colorless mana that can be used to make all your creatures huge with entity.

I hope this helps

If you equip Thornbite Staff to Thorn of the Black Rose who has deathtouch already. Equipped creature has ", Tap: This creature deals 1 damage to target creature or player" and "Whenever a creature is put into a graveyard from play, untap this creature." So essentially it is 2 mana to kill a creature. And everytime you kill a creature thornbit Staff untaps the creature

If you equip Thornbite Staff to Blood Cultist and Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats is in play, you simply just tap the Blood Cultist to deal 1 damage, this kills the creature and thornbite Staff untaps the cultist

Blood Cultist is a pinger Thorn of the Black Rose is not

Bloodsucker1211 I said

"Goblin Chainwhirler, and Dagger Caster are one sided Damnation's. Both Deathbringer Thoctar, and Goblin Sharpshooter do some serious work in a very similar way. Additionally Thornbite Staff on any pinger will also work the same way"

What I'm saying is that, like Goblin Chainwhirler... Deathbringer Thoctar and Goblin Sharpshooter can wipe the board. Then I follow up by saying that if you can put the thornbite Staff on any pinger to create another Goblin Sharpshooter effect. Like a machine gun. Like a board wipe. If I throw the staff on a non pinger then its 2 mana per ping. Being conditional this ways it's not the same. I hope that clears it up.

I like Arena. I own one too. It could slot in pretty easily. I'm gonna try it out before adding it to this list.

you said Thornbite Staff needs to be on a pinger. Why? Shouldn't it be able to go on any creature?

AceofRoses This deck works very well for me in my play group. I just updated the deck this evening to reflect some changes that I have made. As far as the comment about running the deck with out certain cards my opinions are as follows. Blood Moon is most definitely a luxury for a budget builds, before I shelled out for it I used the much more reasonable Blood Sun. Coat of Arms is another more luxury pick as well while the anthem buff is nice it is not a critical addition. Same with Door of Destinies they can easily be replaced with other selections. Grenzo, Havoc Raiser is really amazing in this deck for his goading ability and his exile ability however, again for a budget build this could be swapped out with a more budget friendly goblin card. Helm of the Host This is where we start getting into some serious territory lol, Helm is such a great card in this deck, making copies of Krenko, Mob Boss that stick around, because they aren't legendary make this deck go bananas, as well as those copies having haste, NUTS!!!. In all seriousness this is one of those cards I would look at splurging on... Purphoros, God of the Forge is an amazing way to ping down all enemies so quickly and is indestructable. This is another one that I would advise trying to find a way to squeeze in, my deck goes off way more frequently after adding him than it ever did before him. Thornbite Staff is an easy combo piece and something that is not necessary but gives you more options for winning, and if you aren't planning on going the combo route then it isn't as big of a deal. Thousand-Year Elixir is another haste enabler for Krenko, Mob Boss as well as a combo piece but can be subbed out for another haste enabler that is more budget friendly. Finally Vanquisher's Banner is a great card in any tribal deck but again not strictly necessary in a this build, to be honest it is on my list of possible cards to cut when I acquire more combo pieces for this deck.

You could add 4 different infinite combos here that win you the game on the spot by abusing atlas ability. All you need is either Purphoros, God of the Forge or Burning Sun's Avatar in the deck, an eldrazi Titan to reshuffle your grave and these combos.

  • Thornbite Staff + Ashnod's Altar lets you produce infinite eggs and put all your creatures on the table. Cycling an eldrazi titan over and over kills with purphoros triggers.

  • Runed Stalactite + Ashnod's Altar lets you cycle through your deck until you find the desired creature or killed everyone with purphoros triggers.

  • Runed Stalactite + Mirror Entity also kills the table with purphoros triggers when you activate entity for 0 just often enough by holding priority.

  • Mirror Entity + Ashnod's Altar lets you cycle again through your deck similar to stalactite and altar combo while also producing infinite colorless mana that can be used to make all your creatures huge with entity.
