Krenko's Got Artifacts (competitive goblins)

Commander / EDH Aggro Combo Competitive Goblins Infinite Combo Tokens



"Don't underestimate the aerodynamic qualities of the common goblin"


Welcome to my goblin commander deck! This deck is basically a super quick goblin spawner deck, with equipments for Krenko like Illusionist's Bracers to speed it up. There are also plenty of infinite combos in this deck, providing easy win situations. Practically every card in this deck can be combined with a few other cards in a game winning combo! Check out my other goblin deck here--> Goblin Rush: infinite goblins and mana T2

Mogg Infestation: this card will almost certainly win you the game, especially if you have Impact Tremors or Boggart Shenanigans out

Aggravated Assault: because who doesn't like extra attack phases

Blood Moon: works with Goblin King

Boggart Shenanigans: one of the best cards in this deck as it protects against boardwipes, hurts you opponent if they block, and combines with any infinite sacrifice combo for infinite damage

Fervor : everything you control has haste

Outnumber : kill almost any creature

Pyretic Ritual : mana ramp

Seething Song: more mana ramp

Before you get Krenko out, you will want to spawn in as many goblins as possible. You can do this with spells such as Krenko's Command and Hordeling Outburst, or you can do it with creatures. The main goblin spawning creatures are Beetleback Chief, and Siege-Gang Commander, which I usually cheat in with Goblin Lackey, Warren Instigator or Moggcatcher. If you don't have any of the goblins you want, you can tutor for them with Goblin Matron, Goblin Recruiter, and Gamble. With a combination of spells and creatures, you should have plenty of goblins by turn 4. The other thing you will want to do is set up for the commander. There are cards like Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, and Goblin Chirurgeon to protect him, and cards like Illusionist's Bracers , Thornbite Staff, Umbral Mantle, Magewright's Stone, and Thousand-Year Elixir to make sure his ability is activated multiple times a turn.

Not long after you get Krenko out, he should be equipped with plenty of toys and you should have a lot of goblins on the battlefield. There are plenty of win conditions with this deck, so I may miss some. Please tell me in the comments if you see another combo that can win!

Attacking: If you are going to simply attack your opponent with all of the tokens you are generating, there are a few key cards you will want. A must have is definitely Shared Animosity , as it will buff each goblin to massive proportions. Another good card is Goblin War Drums, which will ensure twice as many goblins to get through your opponents blockers. You will also want Aggravated Assault to attack extra times. If you want to do extra damage when your goblins die, you also need Boggart Shenanigans.

Goblin War Strike: This win condition is pretty simple. If you have enough goblins then you play Goblin War Strike , Massive Raid, Mob Justice, Kyren Negotiations, Burn at the Stake, or Gempalm Incinerator to instantly kill them.

Goblin Charbelcher: Thanks to Domzig138, I discovered a cool combo with Goblin Charbelcher . Basically, you play charbelcher, then play Goblin Recruiter to put 20 goblins on top of your deck. Then you activate charbelcher's ability to instantly do at least 40 damage. If they are running a life gain deck, you can always increase the number of goblins you put on the top.

Shenanigans: Just the card Goblin Shenanigans will probably win the game. Any infinite sacrifice combo will kill your opponent, but even if it isn't infinite you will probably win because you will most likely have 40+ goblins by turn 5-6. You only need 20 goblins if you have Goblin Bombardment out.

Infinite Combos: Now we are getting to the fun stuff: infinite combos! Tell me in the comments if you see any other infinite combos or if you know of any that I can add. For now, here are the ones that I know:

1) Krenko+Thornbite Staff+any sacrifice outlet= infinite goblin tokens. Add Impact Tremors or Boggart Shenanigans and you deal infinite damage

2) Krenko+Umbral Mantle/Sword of the Paruns+Mana Echoes+2 other creatures=infinite tokens. Add Impact Tremors for infinite damage.

3) Krenko+Umbral Mantle/Sword of the Paruns+Ashnod's Altar+2 goblins=infinite colorless mana, infinite sacrifices and infinite tokens. Add Boggart Shenanigans or Impact Tremors for infinite damage.

There are a bunch of different combinations of the cards listed in the combos above that go infinite which I will not list due to the vast number of them. The point is that there are a lot of them. Now here are some different ones with Kiki-Jiki.

4) Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker+Thornbite Staff+any sacrifice outlet=infinite sacrifices of the sacrifice outlet. Add Boggart Shenanigans for infinite damage.

5) Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker+Thornbite Staff+Goblin Sharpshooter=infinite damage and death. Basically you equip Thornbite Staff to Kiki-Jiki, then copy Goblin Sharpshooter, tap it to kill the other one, which will untapp itself and Kiki-Jiki, then you tap it to deal one damage to you opponent and repeat the process.

Best Case Scenario

This combo has the possibility to win turn 3:

T1: 7 cards in hand. mountain, Rite of Flame , Krenko's Command.

T2: 5 cards in hand. mountain, Skirk Prospector, Brightstone Ritual, sac a goblin with prospector, play Krenko, Mob Boss.

T3: 3 cards in hand. mountain, tap Krenko, sacrifice 3 goblins to Skirk Prospector and tap all of your lands to play Thornbite Staff and equip it to Krenko, Mob Boss. Then sacrifice the final goblin to untap Krenko and tap him again. Keep sacrificing one goblin to untap and tap Krenko. You will get infinite goblins and infinite mana. If the final card in your hand is Goblin War Strike , Massive Raid, Kyren Negotiations, Burn at the Stake, or even Impact Tremors, you can play that to win. If not, just attack next turn.
