Destroyerbirb on Grenzo Doomsday Snoop - Budget CEDH

2 months ago

I'm still editing the deck, but Queen_Lulu, the combos work like this.

Combo 1) Use Doomsday or Goblin Recruiter to stack these five cards in this order. (There are some things you can change around.)

Dark-Dweller Oracle, Conspicuous Snoop, Torch Courier (Have to put into the deck), Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Sling-Gang Lieutenant/Mogg Fanatic. (If it's Doomsday you can put the top two cards on the bottom and activate Grenzo, Dungeon Warden and you would get a similar result.)

Find a way to draw a card, then play Dark-Dweller Oracle. Activate it once (for now), and play Conspicuous Snoop. Using the Conspicuous Snoop, play Torch Courier, and sacrifice it targeting Conspicuous Snoop. Now Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker is on the top of your library. Conspicuous Snoop has Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker's ability, and has haste thanks to the Torch Courier. Activate the Conspicuous Snoop/Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker to make a copy of itself. (It's a non-legendary permanent.) The copy will be untapped, and you can make infinite tokens. Finally, use Dark-Dweller Oracle one last time to get rid of Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. With Sling-Gang Lieutenant/Mogg Fanatic on the top of the library, you can use any Conspicuous Snoop to gun down your opponents.

Combo 2) Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Zealous Conscripts. Kiki copies and the Conscripts untaps Kiki.

Combo 3) Play the Snoop and Boggart Harbinger. The Harbinger will put Kiki on top, combo off, then use the last untapped Snoop to copy the Harbinger and put the Lieutenant/Fanatic on the top to win.

A good thing about the last combo it that there is a failsafe in case you somehow get Kiki onto the battlefield. If you have Tel-Jilad Stylus, plus the Snoop and the Harbinger, use Kiki to copy the Harbinger, but with that ability on the stack, use the Stylus to put Kiki on the bottom of your library, and then the Harbinger will tutor Kiki to the top.

Other combo payoffs are Goblin Bombardment, Altar of the Brood, Impact Tremors, Vindictive Vampire and Zulaport Cutthroat.

smilodex on Narset's Way of Jeskai a Monk - cEDH

@ channelfireball12345 thank you for the suggestion and I get your point but sadly:

The "commander tax" is an additional cost, but it does not affect what a card's converted mana cost is. Converted mana cost is always based on the mana cost printed on the card; it never accounts for effects that add or reduce actual costs to cast something. It's a bit like kicker costs...

If that wouldn't be the case, this card would be a staple card in almost every red edh-deck. to give narset haste, I prefer Need for Speed(/Footfall Crater), Torch Courier or even Generator Servant.

I've been playing a variation of your list for about a year now and fell in love ever since. At first I was not convinced about snoop until realizing the combo!

Snoop Combo (Basically a mono red Doomsday) : Goblin Recruiter + Some piece of draw, e.g. Insolent Neonate + A lot of mana, RRRR or more.

Play the Goblin Recruiter, getting Dark-Dweller Oracle, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Skirk Prospector, Torch Courier or Goblin Chieftan, and Conspicuous Snoop. Put them on the top of your library, first card on the bottom of the pile and going up

Some cards we can cut to fit in the Fanatic Snoop Combo and Kiki Snoop combo are:

Cards to add for the combos:

Time to playtest! :)

Let me know what you think.

Birthing Pod can't be played in this color combo due to it having Green Phyrexian mana, but consider adding these:

Deflecting Swat, for protection/interaction

Raging Goblin, Torch Courier, Fanatical Firebrand, Goblin Champion, Legion Loyalist, and Tin Street Dodger for "1 red, put a human from your library onto the battlefield tapped and attacking"


Ignore that, and run Mass Hysteria

This is minor and probably doesn't matter in the grander scheme of the combo, but Monastery Swiftspear is just better than Fervent Champion here. Also Torch Courier could be used to give Drakuseth, Maw of Flames haste if you want to add insult to your opponents injury. That's just nitpicking though, because the combo is really cool!

Maybe Torch Courier would be a good addition to this deck, as it could be a great combo with Pashalik Mons. Also, my favorite card, Murderous Redcap, would help this deck a ton! I hope this was helpful.

Might I suggest adding in Vigean Graftmage and Incubation Druid to create infinite mana. You could even go as far as doing flash hulk and adding in Torch Courier. Even if you dont go the flash hulk route adding the graftmage and incubation druid is a good way to make infinite mana.

Is there a reason you chose the hermit druid path over a consultation wincon? I feel like there would be less dead draws in the deck. Is there a reason you do not include a Wild Cantor part of a hulk package with Pili-Pala and Grand Architect or to include another hulk line with Vigean Graftmage + Incubation Druid + Torch Courier ?
