Traitorous Blood Discussion
2 weeks ago
Hi there! I'm flattered that you think my opinion is worth getting on this! I see you've done a lot of work so I will make a few humble suggestions!
I see a lot of suggestions I would make are in the maybeboard. I really like Moltensteel Dragon Harness by Force and a last humble suggestion Magewright Stone to untap Brion. Hopefully some of this is the least bit helpful. Cheers! - Casey

You have a lot of different ideas that are in conflict here. I'd try to make this into a low to the ground goblin deck, since that seems to be the main theme. To do that, I'd remove the Torpor Orb Boldwyr Heavyweights combo. It's a weak combo at its best, especially with Fatal Push appearing everywhere. At worst, you turn off your own Hellrider
I'd also get rid of Reverberate and Traitorous Blood. While they're both powerful effects, they aren't at their best in a goblin deck.
That gives us 11 free slots to work with. To start, add another Goblin Wardriver. The card is great. Next, let's add 4 Goblin Piledriver ($2 each). To finish out the super aggressive 2 drops, lets add 4 Goblin Bushwhacker.
Let's stop and look at the deck with these changes. What is the deck trying to do? Make lots of goblins, buff them up, then deal lots of damage. Simple enough. To finish this strategy up, let's add a bit more reach (burn spells), a few more turn 1 plays, and cut cards that work better in a slower game. Boggart Shenanigans and Curse of Stalked Prey are both too slow for our deck now, so let's cut them. We should also be at 20 lands; this will give us the best chance of getting a 2 or 3 land hand, which is important, since a 1 or 4+ land is a mulligan 99% of the time with this deck. We also need to have RR on turn 2, so colorless lands are risky. Because of this, lets cut 2 Haunted Fengraf. We now have cut 17 cards and added 9 cards, so 8 open slots. I would look this list and pick 1 card. I think your best budget option is Frenzied Goblin. If you want to spend money, you can upgrade to Goblin Guide, but I don't think it's worth it. Finally, let's add 4 Lightning Bolt to give the deck some extra reach and a way to remove problem creatures.

So I've had a look through and I've committed to the following;
I am going to have a look through and get rid of some of the higher powered cards, the demons, legendary creatures etc and hopefully that'll make it better to play.I already have Act of Treason so i'll put those in too which should help with the destroying of creatures

There are a few cards that do the same as Act of Treason, but just a little better, for the same converted mana cost. Examples: Harness by Force, Hijack, Kari Zev's Expertise, Traitorous Blood. Just some food for thought.

derhealman Thanks again for your suggestions, I am choosing to keep Traitorous Blood over Act of Aggression because of the nature of the deck, I think that the trample makes a difference in getting the damage to your opponent.
