Standard Deck Help forum

Aloha all, I have been struggling to make a Krenko standard deck and would love some help. I guess I'm just indesicive in what i want for the deck. My goal is to go to my LGS and buy all their goblin tokens and then have them all out during FNM. Im leaning either gruul to pump Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin as early as possible with ramp and lost cost spells deck:gruul krenko or Boros to use Angelic Exultation and keep krenko alive with pump spells that give indestructible. Boros Gobbos

Any thoughts are more than welcome! i linked my prototypes after each tribal pairing. thank you!!

Hey there! I love the idea of buying out all the tokens out! xD
I say you sleeve each one in a unique sleeve.

As for krenko, I have a deck on my profile ( What Just Happened?) that he plays a key role in. I chose Bant ( green, white, red) and lean on pump spells to finish the game as quick as possible.

As for you, both gruul and boros each have their pros and cons...

If you go gruul run collision/colossus as well as domri, auger of Bolas as a foundation and go from there... maybe use zur-ta goblin and gruul spellbreaker for an aggro build.

As for boros, you have access to cards like Swiftblade Vindicator , Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice , & Tajic, Legion's Edge so mentor could be fun to play around with.

I say you go outside the box and run Mono-red Goblins. cards like the goblin prospector (i forget his name, he is one mana) , Legion Warboss , and Siege-Gang Commander

Whichever route u choose, I wish you luck!

I definitely think Gruul is the way to go here. Thanks to WOTS you have access to a ton of green proliferate cards (Pollenbright Druid, Evolution Sage, Courage in Crisis,etc.) as well as pump spells as previously stated in the thread. Legion Warboss is a great goblin generator for the early game, and Cavalcade of Calamity is brutal for going against Settle decks. Cindervines is a good include for the sideboard against control builds. From one Krenko fanboy to another, best of luck!

I would personally go grull and run cards like Collision / Colossus and other pump. you could also run Dreadhorde Arcanist as another target of your pump spells. I would also not underestimate Maximize Velocity giving either creature a little pump and haste is great.

You could go both (Naya: green/red/white, Bant is white/green/blue) but you would need a lot of rare lands ect to get it to be reliable. However, some cards could be very good Integrity / Intervention would be great

Thank you all so much! I would like to stay away from a tri color, the price of shocks and checks is too damn high! I actually ordered cards for both builds and I'll let you all know how each one goes at FNM!
