I Have A Gambling Problem

Commander / EDH*



Quarters. You can use them to either operate laundry services, scratch off that fifth losing instant winner ticket in a row, or even retrieve handfuls of sweet treats or puppy stickers from what are essentially slot machines for children.

Or you could screw that noise, and bring your sweet, sweet, coinage to the commander table and either rain hell fire all around you or die in a horrible cataclysmic explosion, but hey, at least you'll die with a smile on your face.

This deck's sole purpose isn't to win, it's to create those Magic moments around the table, and keep those smiles shining until they read your cards' rules texts

My general, Arjun, the Shifting Flame, allows me to dig for answers, shenanigans, or combo pieces. Most of the time I'd notice I really would only want to play a few cards out of my hand at a given time, so pitching a hand and getting a restock is great!

Okay, so Ludevic dont have anything to do with coins, but he deals in useful, diplomatic currency: Card Draw. He buys you time to do thumb push-ups and stretch your flipping hand out while your opponents don't mess with you for an extra card.

Depending on if there are other people who suffer from gambling addiction as much as you do at the table, Game of Chaos has the potential to wipe a player out on turn 3. Dual Casting has me gamble with more than one amigo, too!!

Combo Starters: Frenetic Efreet, Squee's Revenge, Krark's Thumb, Fiery Gambit , Fighting Chance, Game of Chaos , Mana Clash

Combo Outlets: Chance Encounter, Karplusan Minotaur ,

Even this deck's card draw and board wipes are dependant on the luck of the (mostly) copper circle:Sorcerer's Strongbox, Boompile

Any help in tweaking this beauty are much appreciated, and remember,

You gotta risk it for the biscuit

I'd love to see someone flipping 12 coins every upkeep.

This deck looks absolutely glorious, decks like this one are why I love Commander. I am surprised that you are not running Gamble for the flavour but that card is risky. May you have many explosive and ridiculous games with this deck. :-)

Canadiansnowdragon Thanks for the feedback. I can't believe I haven't thought of Gamble yet! Thanks for the idea! I'll work on cutting room for it

I've seen this and already upvoted, but I wish I could do it several more times! It's always nice to see a deck that is not so much focused on winning as much as it is having fun. Have you tried Odds before, (maybe its not legal here I don't know)?

Snap157 I appreciate that! Odds is a great card, but not legal with my deck...hmmm I'll talk to my playgroup & LGS to see if I could swap it in when I can

Since your playgroup is okay with you running Odds, even though it's technically not legal, maybe they would be alright with Goblin Bookie?

astroaron Hey, great idea! I'll run it by them. I think with my deck containing more than one illegal card in it, I'll run a casual sideboard so I can slip those illegal cards in with my casual buddies or people who accept odds and bookie. Thanks for commenting!

SufferFromEDHD; Clockspinning is a good idea, I can charge up Goblin Bomb or Chance Encounter with it. The only problem I can see is Arjun tossing it under my library after buying it back, but Arjun isn't always out. Plus I can replicate Clockspinning. I'll add it in

Goblin Game is always fun and it fits your deck's gambling theme.

Livingham; Goblin Game is fun! But I haven't cast it in a game yet!! It's my first priority

My bad I didn't even see you were already playing with it, I was looking through the first portion of your deck alphabetically and didn't realize how you arranged your list.

Livingham ; All good! I just wish I've had a chance to cast it in a game
