This is a very simple deck. You cast your general on turn 4 at the latest and burn everyone alive. Okay, there is a little more to it than that. You need to use your creatures as a source for a wide range of abilities that go from protecting yourself to removing permanents to doing extra damage. You do not have to worry about this deck not being considered an aggro deck because of the amount of creatures you will have on the field. Mind you this is still a mono-red deck so there are limitations but we use what we can to negate those negative interactions with our deck. There are a good amount of card draw or hand-shuffle to negate the low mana cost imbalance.

Fun Card Interactions:

  • Grinning Ignus + Ruby Medallion : This not an infinite combo, but it lasts a good amount as long as you have a red mana to play.

  • Extraplanar Lens + 30 Snow-Covered Mountain : You imprint a Snow-Covered Mountain with Extra planar lens so you can get double the mana but your opponents cannot.

  • Skullclamp + ANY TOKEN : When you equip Skullclamp to any of your tokens they will die; so you basically pay 1 to draw 2 cards.

  • Play Goblin Matron or Imperial Recruiter then search for and play Goblin Recruiter. Search for Goblin Ringleader and 4 other Goblins of your choice placing Goblin Ringleader as the next drawn card. Next turn, draw Goblin Ringleader and play it putting the 4 Goblins you searched for in your hand.

  • Play Sneak Attack and use its ability to bring in either Goblin Lackey or Warren Instigator with haste. Attack with either card to deal damage and bring in 1 or 2 Goblin cards from your hand into play.
