Weapon Surge Discussion

TheMadRocketeer on Tier 1 Pauper Goblins

As a guy who loves goblins, I'm going to give this a good looking over. I play Casual, so Goblin Grenade is an automatic 4-of in any non-Commander Goblin deck for me. Looks like I need to go get play sets of Reckless Abandon (I have one.) and Goblin War Strike (New to me.) too.

One potential issue I see here is the low mana curve, believe it or not. With no draw, you're going to be top decking in a hurry. Another thing that can get to be a problem is tougher creatures that a mid-range deck will bring out once it stabilizes.

A few cards that can help:
Dragon Fodder
Krenko's Command
Hordeling Outburst , as mentioned above
Weapon Surge
Dynacharge
Brute Force
Mugging

Looks like a ton of fun to play.

I like decks like this that have themes! I remember trying to make a "steal all your stuff" deck — that was fun. XD


Seismic Stomp alternatives

I have no idea what your meta is like, but a possible card in place of Seismic Stomp would be Destructive Tampering . It's 1 CMC more, but if artifacts become a problem for you, the added flexibility might be worth it. Possible sideboard card?

If you're in a flyer-heavy meta (in which case Stomp isn't very good), some alternatives for Stomp, all at 3 CMC, are: Goblin War Cry (and the creature they choose you can easily deal with), Incite Hysteria if you tend to face more one- to two-color decks, and Ruthless Invasion in an artifact-light meta.

If you want to stick with Seismic Stomp , then consider Falter instead. Same CMC and effect, but it's strictly better as an instant.


Tail Slash alternatives

Fall of the Hammer is 1 CMC less than Tail Slash and Soul's Fire can hit ANY target for the same CMC.

A possible win-con with Zada out would be Chandra's Ignition . You'll kill all your own creatures, too, so it's effectively a boardwipe (though with Otherworldly Outburst it's a one-sided wipe), but who cares when you're Fling ing multiple creatures with power 3 and 4 at your opponents' faces!! Good in multiplayer, if that's your jam. I'd only put in 1-2, since it has 5 CMC.


Other cards for Zada

Rile is amazing for drawing cards! Sure, it'll kill some of your smaller dudes, and the trample doesn't really matter to you. But it basically reads "{R} -- Draw cards equal to the number of creatures you control." For red, that's a good thing, especially to re-fuel in the late game. Maybe 1-2.

Dynacharge and Weapon Surge are easy to Overload if Zada isn't out, but with her out they cost less mana, which can matter quite often. First Strike is less of a big deal if no one can block, so Dynacharge's +2 is better, BUT Surge's overload is cheaper. Possible replacements for Otherworldly Outburst if you find the Overload useful.

Also, imagine casting either of those on the same turn as cards like Fall of the Hammer and Soul's Fire !

I personally would cut Stoneforge Masterwork, War Cadence, Weapon Surge, and Trumpet Blast for starters. Maybe Stoneforge Masterwork could stay, but I'd rather play more goblins.

I would consider Thousand-Year Elixir, Magewright's Stone, Door of Destinies, and Beetleback Chief.

I hope this helps!

Weapon Surge can be good if you're looking for overload.

Good deck idea! +1

I'd recommend putting in Implement of Ferocity instead of Metalspinner's Puzzleknot as you have mainl the same effect while not losing life and it costs 1 less mana.Also, instead of Uncaged Fury you could consider Borrowed Hostility, Rush of Adrenaline or Weapon Surge.

I love the idea, so I started browsing all red one-cost cards in Modern using Gatherer... I should be sleeping instead... oh well.

Since you're going entirely for one drops, you may want to condense your plans into two colors - when I playtested your deck with the playtest feature, I had a hard time getting a good start because the manabase is too diverse for getting things out quickly.

You might consider sticking with just two colors - red and white. The reason for that choice is because those are more likely to have "prowess" creatures (I think), and spells that boost all your dudes, rather than just one at a time (like green usually gets for low cost). Giant Growth might be replaced with Built to Smash, Taste for Mayhem Titan's Strength or Furious Resistance

Since you're trying to get lots of dudes into play, spells that boost all your creatures, rather than just one, might be best. In keeping with my red/white suggestion, have you considered Banners Raised, Weapon Surge or Coordinated Assault?

Also, here's a few one-drops that caught my eye.

A Crack the Earth on turn two after playing a little guy, forcing a slower opponent to sacrifice a land or mana dork, could be devasating. Also, replace Swords to Plowshares (Not modern legal) with something modern legal like Path to Exile or, in a pinch, Fiery Impulse or Flame Slash.

You might also try a crazy little Kuldotha Rebirth-BoNeSaW-Goblin Grenade if you want people to hate you...
