Warren Instigator Discussion

Vergil_Redgrail on H: Modern Goblins, Olivia EDH, ...

Hello everybody. I'm finally deciding to try and finish the monumentally expensive task of completing my Affinity deck, and possibly getting some things for Modern Merfolk as well. Aside from the listed Haves, I've got a Saheeli Rai and 4x Torrential Gearhulk. You should be able to find the Olivia deck on my profile, and the Goblin deck has 4x Goblin Guide (ZEN), 4x Warren Instigator, 2x Krenko, Mob Boss, 4x Goblin Chieftain and a few Goblin King, for most of the notable pieces. For Affinity, I'm looking for 3x Arcbound Ravager, prefer Modern Masters, and maybe Kaladesh Invention if you have one you want to get rid of, 4x Mox Opal, 2x Steel Overseer.

For Merfolk, I'm pretty much looking for anything at this point.

I can't rely on Warren Instigator to cast 4 and 5 drop goblins b.c he's easily removed and then I'm left with dead cards in my hand b.c I only run 18 lands.

Hi,at first i love goblin decks an play it too. How good work this list?

What I think, Legion Loyalist must in main deck, he is not so stron as a first drop like Foundry Street Denizen, but he harmonizes in midgame better whit your other goblins, especially white Goblin Piledriver.

Warren Instigator its strong but slow, when uyou play him use his strange to cast Krenko, Mob Boss or Siege-Gang Commander.

Reckless Bushwhacker its good bus not so good like Goblin Bushwhacker. To cast him for his surge coast you need to cast another card befor, its possebel in turn three or four, but in this stadium in game I am most in topdeck modus.

You dont need the green splash, your landbase coast too much live, better play 4 Mutavault. Ancient Grudge can destroy 2 artefacs, sure its good but white green splash its Destructive Revelry better, yes its bubry only one artefact but its deald damage. Or play Smash to Smithereens or Shatterstorm in a only red list.

Blood Moon its so good and its synergizes so good with Goblin King (King its only as one of in SB, I like him but its not for everyone).

Whats is with your gravehate?

Hi there. Firstly, go goblins! Hmm... So much to recommend. From the top of my head:

Goblin Lackey/Warren Instigator-speeds up goblin coming into play drastically

Goblin Welder/Goblin Tinkerer- artifact hate

Mogg Infestation- doubles your goblin count

Goblin Warrens- goblins for goblins

Quest for the Goblin Lord- a cheaper anthem to boost your creatures

Shared Animosity- huge boost to combat damage

Myriad Landscape- only land I could think of at the moment for non basic land


On a sidenote, you may want to think about one of red decks greatest weakness: draw power.

Yes, Warren Instigator does put two goblins out. Don't worry about your group not playing blue, Goblin Piledriver is an amazing card anyway.

Hey, I find grenzo list are a lot smoother if you can get the creature count to 45 or 50 just so you aren't turning too many duds and wasting mana. A couple goblins id consider adding are:

Goblin Marshal, Boggart Mob, Goblin Wizard, Goblin Balloon Brigade, Warren Instigator are all I can think of atm.

Also I'm not a huge fan of Teferi's Puzzle Box because I run into nekusar a bit, I run Goblin Charbelcher instead since you can one shot someone after casting Goblin Recruiter and stack the bottom of your library to kill everyone else.

Last thing, Reito Lantern is really slow and mana intensive. I use Patriarch's Bidding and/or Tel-Jilad Stylus instead.

Hope that helps!

Markov Blademaster, Prophetic Flamespeaker, Spiraling Duelist, Savageborn Hydra and other creatures with double strike benefit from your equipment both because they deal more damage but they deal damage twice per turn giving you 2 triggers off of your equipment.

Although their abilities aren't super relevant in your deck, the only double strikers at 2 mana or less in your colors are Scourge Wolf. Viashino Slaughtermaster, Warren Instigator. I'd stick to the 3 cmc or greater ones for your deck.
