Izzet really a goblin deck!?

Standard Burn Control Goblins U/R (Izzet)



post rotation goblin deck. I really like goblins and i feel like this is the road less traveled for izzet decks. I would like it to be generally competitive. Any any help with the main deck or side board would be swell.


So yesterday i played a buddy of mine, who was using a Geist of Saint Traft and Sublime Archangel deck and i won because he couldnt get land. But i see those two cards probably being my decks biggest threat. I could easily Thunderbolt the Sublime Archangel but the Geist of Saint Traft will be a tad more difficult. How do you guys think i could beat him?

Overloading Mizzium Mortars gets past Hexproof.

yeah i know but that could happen a minimum of turn 4 by casting Battle Hymn with at least 3 guys out (not a problem) then casting an overloaded Mizzium Mortars . i need a more efficient way to stop flyers

What's your opinion on adding Izzet Charm ? And have you considered using Teleportal as a finisher?

I like Izzet Charm . i actually had it in the first draft of this deck. but in play testing i always found myself wishing i had something else over it. It is unaffected by Goblin Electromancer and i dont really need alot of dig. i have done alot of thinking about Teleportal and i think come sinker it will be in it. the card would be sick with Goblin Chieftain . things would ahve gotten crazy haha. But right now i see my main finishers being Burn at the Stake or a Battle Hymn into card:Devil's Play or Bonfire of the Damned .

Have you considered Coat of Arms ? It is an amazing finisher with Krenko.

if it was standard legal....Coat of Arms +Teleportal =GG

Consider Syncopate .

i was thinking Syncopate when it was spoiled. but i feel Negate main boarded is solid and then Essence Scatter and Dissipate in the side board is solid. depending the meta, they may switch.

Goblin Rally anyone? As for Geist of Saint Traft I'd recommend Dissipate or Syncopate , depending on the situation.

Not sure how competitive it is but Dynacharge makes for a very interesting game.

Reverberate has defensive capabilities as well as offensive. You copy any spell whereas Increasing Vengeance is just a spell you control. You are able to counter a counter and what not.

I was wondering if Psychic Spiral might be good for your sideboard? Might be good if you encounter strong mill and manage to land it.

AEtherize would be solid. Better that devastation tide imo. This is pretty cool, I like it +1 I also have a Goblins deck for competitive standard and haven't seen any problems yet, although there are alot of cards that could prolly stop it but no one really plays it. Good Flavor. I say aetherize because you are gonna hit hard as hell once you get 5 dudes out. Its perfect against other aggro. I might also suggest thundermaw. I mean, he's nasty. Dragons usually eat goblins but they can be nice too. Cheers

...oh, you left your runechanters pike on the ground _~ if you get a krenko out at outs good time, I also suggest spell rupture. Welcome.back mana leak for 1 mana. Much better than essence for surr

thanks bud! i havent really looked at this deck wih gatecrash. Im looking forward to dragons maze tho. I feel like goblins will do well then.

I love that you use reverberate. I'm sure against sphinx's rev that's nasty. I'm thinking about using it too, even though I already use rev. Haha

haha this deck hasnt seen a whole lot of play. I built it, played it one fnm and got steamrolled. haha i usually stick to just drafting. but yeah reverberate is a solid card. offensive and defensive

Have u seen my goblins list? With the use of blood artist, all them 1/1s become 2/2s essentially. Gaining you life in the process. Its really dirty. What kind of decks are in your "meta" I hate that word. Lol

February 19, 2013 1:31 a.m.

tdubs says... #24

yeah yours is sick. My meta is pretty standard. alot of the deck lists recreated from pro tour gatecrash. I wanna build r/w/b Burn at the Stake the ali antrazi deck teched. its freaking sick
