Thornbite Staff Discussion

Liquidbeaver on Ib Halfheart, Goblin Sac-tician [PRIMER]

Added Glacial Crevasses back in, and it and Goblin Sledder won me the very next game against an Angel tribal control deck that I've never beaten. I forgot how much I liked it.

Testing Gravity Sphere again to see if it is the right way to go about countering my biggest creature weakness.

Added Mizzium Mortars per a recommendation by VraskaTheCursed. It is a great compliment to Blasphemous Act.

Testing Mind's Eye and Farsight Maskfor more draw. If I don't like the speed of them, I will put Reforge the Soul back in their place, unless I can find another big draw spell I like more. Wheels have been doing a lot of great work for me lately.

Removed:

Treasonous Ogre - Great card, but I found myself not casting it a lot because I didn't need blistering ramp so much.

Godo, Bandit Warlord - I love this card, but the CMC makes it a hard include. The better my draw gets, the less I need highly costed tutors, but tutoring my Nemesis Mask, Basilisk Collar, or Thornbite Staffand freecasting it can be really nice. May find it's way back in.

Expedition Map - It's hard to quantify the benefit of this card. Sideboarding it until I notice I miss it.

Ok, first off, your deck has 2 too many cards, you'll need to cut those. Secondly, I think you'll find you have too few lands to be consistent. Next, I believe there are better zombies. Here's a few. I don't know what your budget is, so some of these may be a bit pricey.

Lord of the Undead

Undead Warchief

Corpse Harvester

Geth, Lord of the Vault

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed

Relentless Dead

Phyrexian Crusader

Death Baron

Gravespawn Sovereign

Zombie Master

Risen Executioner

Scourge of Nel Toth

Other card suggestions.

Skullclamp If you have Gravecrawler, it's a 2 mana draw 2.

Dictate of Erebos A good way to keep opponents locked down.

Thornbite Staff Combined with Gisa, you can keep pumping out zombies at a MUCH faster rate

Coat of Arms The ultimate buff to a tribal deck.

Hope that helps!

Here are my suggestions and some recommended removals to tighten the deck. Molten Primordial, Lifeline, Assault Suit, Recruiter of the Guard, Solemn Simulacrum, Burnished Hart, Infiltration Lens, 2x Plains (36 lands should be your minimum despite your mana rocks in order to consistently get to 4 lands by turn 4), Rage Nimbus, Master Warcraft, Nim Deathmantle, Thornbite Staff, Umbral Mantle, Helm of Possession, Anarchist, Illusionist's Bracers, Caged Sun, Gilded Lotus, Rugged Prairie, Iroas, God of Victory, Obsidian Battle-Axe, Mob Rule, Savage Beating, Adarkar Valkyrie, Karmic Guide

Suggestions to remove:

Clean up repetitious cards in sideboard and maybeboard that are in the deck. Best of luck, hope some of that is helpful.

ncon on Budget Krenko, Mob Boss

Hi, this looks like a great start! Krenko is one of my favorite commanders; he's a solid choice whether you play aggro or combo. Also, mono-red EDH! People tend to bash on red in the format, but I love it!

I think you could scale back the number of lands you have. In general, 37ish is the number of lands I aim for in commander, but Krenko's curve is so low compared to other EDH decks you could even go lower (with mana rocks or ramp, of course). I run 35 lands in my Krenko deck, all basic mountains (talk about a budget mana base!).

Other cards that would fit effectively with Krenko are Goblin Chirurgeon to help protect your board, Impact Tremors is like a mini Purphoros, Skullclamp can give you crazy card advantage, Thornbite Staff and any of your sac outlets like Skirk Prospector or Goblin Bombardment will let you pull off some infinite combos if that's your style, Five-Alarm Fire gives you repeatable lava axes just for combat damage, Fervor if you want more haste, Battle Hymn if you want another Brightstone Ritual, Massive Raid and Mob Justice can one shot someone out of nowhere (not as cool as Goblin War Strike). You've already got my two favorite goblin board wipes with Goblin Assassin and Skirk Fire Marshal, these guys do some real work with Krenko!

Now go wreck some pillow-forting control player!

Infinite combo with Thornbite Staff. Equip Gnawer with the staff, tap and sac a rat. Rat token technically goes to graveyard, triggering the untap ability on Thornbite Staff

Marrow-Gnawer equipped with the Thornbite Staff can give you infinite rat tokens. Since you are mono black tribal I would consider Patriarch's Bidding to replenish your hand. Living Death has turned more than one game around for me. For ramp Crypt of Agadeem is good, Cabal Coffers is the best.

I once ran a deck with Thornbite Staff and deathtouchers. I never thought to use a deathtouching lifelinker who get's auto-equipped though! +1

I also ran Viridian Longbow though to make the combo not mana-bound.
