Wort, the Raidmother

Legendary Creature — Goblin Shaman

When Wort, the Raidmother enters the battlefield, put two 1/1 red and green Goblin Warrior creature tokens into play.

Each red or green instant or sorcery spell you play has conspire. (As you play the spell, you may tap two untapped creatures you control that share a color with it. When you do, copy it and you may choose new targets for the copy.)

Wort, the Raidmother Discussion

Im a huge goblin lover (my name = fave card)

I love krenko, wort, grenzo, zada and other legendary goblins, my 3rd most competitive edh deck is Wort, the Raidmother, which is almost identical to ib and he is included in her list

So i have to ask, why ib over wort? Wort does what ib does but has access to stuff like Doubling Season, Food Chain and Earthcraft as well as ramp and recursion like Skyshroud Claim and Regrowth

if i had to guess, its because you want more consistency with mono color, you're in a more casual/budget playgroup than mine, or you simply wanted to take one of the difficult to pilot and less faceroll/high power goblin generals and make them do work, and if the latter is the case, I like what i see, its essentially mono red wort which is strictly worse yet obviously not a "bad" list

I love it when people take mediocre generals and turn them into subtle powerhouses, and I also love goblins and homebrew deck builds, therefore you've earned a +1 from me!

I hope you like shaman too

As an avid edh Wort, the Raidmother featuring the combo Of Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, and Lightning Crafter and shaman stuff, I like jund/gruul as much as i love grixis, always looking for new ways to play the colors in modern and edh, this deck gets my vote

Its subtly powerful and original, and well built

In the event blue is a threat in modern again,id recommend 1 or 2 Vexing Shusher to counterproof spells, also Burning-Tree Shaman could see sideboard play

Maybe Crimson Mage, Firedrinker Satyr, Fulminator Mage, Goblin Arsonist, Oracle of Mul Daya, Rattleclaw Mystic, Thrun, the Last Troll, Thermo-Alchemist, or Stonewright?

My first modern brew was red goblins, and if you ever get enough store credit to buy a few, id recommend 2-3 Cavern of Souls mainboard for another Stomping Ground type of land that hoses blue

Besides other non budget things such as Wooded Foothills and Aether Vial cant think of anything else,

Aside from obviously needing a mana base... I reccomend trying Wort, the Raidmother if not as commander then in the 99 to conspire your LD spells. Cryptolith Rite and Paradox Engine does nasty things, too, especially when paired with wort. She can also double anything else like your ramp and whatnot, making for a nasty commander but since you want black she's still good in the 99. Aftershock is just another good land destruction spell with good versatility. Into the Maw of Hell is another hilarious LD spell, and of course there are a lot more.

This helps more than you might think, as I would have a follow up question. Given my color scheme, and how I don't technically want the deck to require the Locust God on the field in order for the deck to function, would I not be better off building a spell slinging deck that emphasizes token creation/working with creatures as opposed to a creature based aggro deck due to my color limitations? Like building a Wort, the Raidmother deck I suppose.

Using an example of my feelings on combos, I know I would be willing to run some infinite combos myself as long as they are self-contained and not reliant on the commander only (at least for this style I'm going for). If I was running mainly goblins or merfolk for some reason I would put Kindred Discovery in my build here because it would coincide with playing so many same type creatures. However, if I stick with the generic aggro support creatures that don't share types, or even go towards the spell spamming style, I only have a consistent type of creature through my commander and to put a card in for that reason would defeat the purpose of being aggro centric and not combo (at least to me).

I think I may have answered my own question here, but I am the type of person that gets to these types of conclusions about 3x faster when I try to talk it out with someone else. It may take a while. but I'll try to use the changes you suggested and that I came to on my own. Thanks again! And good luck on that Marchesa build! Let me know if I can return the favor.

I was thinking the same thing about Petradon, so I'm going to keep in Silvos, Rogue Elemental for now.

I think adding Keldon Firebombers would necessitate a total rework of the deck, so it'll probably be kept on the sidelines.

Thanks for explaining your thoughts and the upvote!


Some deckbuilding guild lines I set out for myself are very little artifacts or enchantments and creatures with toughness 5 and preferably 6 or more to survive Wildfire and Destructive Force so adding Sakiko, Mother of Summer or Wort, the Raidmother would be suspect. Though they are really good cards and I should probably try to fit in sakiko anyway.

I'm also running this on a strict total budget of $50. My buddy and I are trying to flex our deck building skills not our wallets lol. So I don't think i can fit in Neheb, the Eternal even though it's super good as well.

I'm going to swap Conjurer's Closet with Selvala's Stampede though! That's a super cool card and i think it'll be great!

Do you think I should run Hunter's Insight over Soul's Majesty?

If you like the deck an upvote would go a long way, Thanks!

Hate to break it to you, but this deck isn't actually legal in EDH. You have several cards that are outside of your commander's color identity and you have 101 cards listed, so one needs to be removed.

You need to replace Wort, the Raidmother and all of your temples except for Temple of Malice because you can't run cards that have colors that your commander doesn't have and you can't run cards that have color symbols in their rules text that your commander isn't.

Also, I'd suggest Reito Lantern, as it lets you recast creatures in your graveyard for 5 mana.

Howdy sir and/or ma'am. You helped answer a question of mine regarding Zada, Hedron Grinder a short while ago and said I should let you know you if I've completed the deck and was looking for some feedback. I'm probably going to play around a little more with Wort, the Raidmother or Ink-Treader Nephilim as the Commander some time, but for now I've completed a deck here with Zada at the helm if you've got the time some time: House of mirrors. Cheers, and have a good one!
