Sorry to hear that you did however inspire me to add 3 blossoming defense yo my sb for decks running vraska's contempt, glorybringer, and hostage taker. 9 times out of 10 they will try to vraska's contempt during your turn and the blossoming defense just stops them cold and hits them harder. You could play it as a Treasure Red deck with Wily Goblin and just keep the defense in sb for surprise value. Here's the build I run My deck:

Wily Goblin is not great in a three colour deck. Perhaps Prosperous Pirates, which is only 1 specific mana

Could kill on turn 3 with Soul-Scar Mage 2x Consuming Fervor Wily Goblin Fling fits nicely in a Treasure RDW shell.

Hi there. There are a few things that I think you could definitely change about the deck, to make it a bit more synergistic and consistent.

In any deck running Kinjalli's Caller, you want all of your creatures to be dino's. Not only that, you want all of those dino's to reap the benefits of K-caller, by costing 1 less to cast. Sky Terror, Glorybringer, Captain Lannery Storm and Wily Goblin don't fit that requirement, and I would strongly recommend taking them out of the deck. They might seem like good cards to have in the deck because they're good cards in general, but I promise, they don't belong. There are other, better options.

I see you have Rampaging Ferocidon in the mainboard. This is a really good card, and you're smart to run it, but it really is more of a sideboard piece. Even if it's typically good against your local meta, I would still advise that you put it into the sideboard. Against some decks, it's basically a 3/3 for 3. Not what you want to be doing.

The fact that you're play boros colors makes ramping a lot more difficult. Also, it means that you don't have access to some of the best dino's that Ixalan has to offer. Still, we can make it work. Otepec Huntmaster is a great card, you should be running a playset. Also, as far as good dino's that could replace all of the cards that I suggested you take out, Burning Sun's Avatar might be okay. It seems good, Searing Blaze on a 6/6 for 6, and it might be discounted by K-caller and huntmaster. Also, if you feel bold enough, your top end could be Wakening Sun's Avatar. It probably won't be great, as you're really light on ramp and a decent curve without green, but give it a go and see if it's good.

Hope this helps, good luck.

I like it. A bit higher curve aggro deck that still has some steam into mid game. I think the Makeshift Munitions helps late in the game if an opponent gas stabilized and it's harder to get combat damage through.

Also, I think the dream here is T2 Wily Goblin, T3 Chandra or Hazorat basically closes out the game.

This week: SunBURN Invocation

Use Wily Goblin, Captain Lannery Storm, and treasure map to ramp into Sunbird's Invocation and unleash the flames of fury!

Neheb, the Eternal is amazing in here, especially with Repeating Barrage. Barrage opponent, attack with Neheb, buyback Barrage with Neheb's mana ability, repeat next turn!

Still a work in progress, so recommendations are welcome, esp with sideboard. Thanks and hope you enjoy!

I'm trying to find cards that interact with Revel in Riches for the purpose of propelling me towards a win-con in my Admiral Beckett Brass deck.

The cards I've come up with so far are: Strionic Resonator, Mechanized Production and Deadeye Navigator for abusing ETB effects on cards like Wily Goblin.

Any additional suggestions would be appreciated.

So far I have Strionic Resonator, Mechanized Production and Deadeye Navigator for capitalizing on ETB effects from cards like Wily Goblin.

Perhaps there are also some ways to take advantage of sacrificing treasure artifact tokens, but I couldn't really find any on gatherer.
