You can play Scrap Trawler by itself. It’s just a good way to recover is someone vandalblasts or the like. Doesn’t have to go infinite.

Scrap Trawler might be better. I just realized it wasn’t in there.

You could add Sword of the Meek and Thopter Foundry too. Foundry would be good on it’s own, plus it gives you a combo to end the game with KCI.

I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say add Darksteel Citadel so you can play Land Grant. Definitely worth breaking your rule for that one land since you got some metalcraft stuff going on and it’s free ramp.

Pia's Revolution could be a thing too.

Said on Naked Lunch...


EyelessStarfish I really wouldn’t cut a sac outlet, which is pretty much what the husk is, so the only option is a land. I think Ancient Tomb or Lake of the Dead are the weakest links here, but the speed sacrificed probably wouldn’t outweigh the “more winning” feel of nykthos. If I can find a way to fit it in without disrupting the decks main goal, I will test it, but as of now, I can’t see a clear cut path to including it. I appreciate you making me think about it more though.

XxBullockxX I actually cut nykthos after the first draft. It was too slow and I needed to up my swamp count for Lake of the Dead.

Whenever I’m helping with deck-tuning, the first question that needs answered is “what do you want to do with the deck?”

Sounds vague, but if you answer that question, it’ll help you focus on what works and what does not.

How does it play as is would be my next question.

Said on Gobo-Focused Krenko...


Skullion123 thanks for taking a look. You mentioned prices a few times, and that’s not much of an issue for me at this time since I own all the cards in the deck already. If I needed to add Mana Crypt or Gauntlet of Might that could be an issue but as it stands now the deck has been solid.

Chaos Warp is already in the deck. I’m not that bad at mono-red!

Don’t diss mah Scrying Sheets! Card advantage is something this deck struggles with, and any way to filter land or Coldsteel Heart off the top is something to be considered. If it didn’t break my own personal rule of fetches outside of color identity, I would add all the fetchlands for mountains I could run just to thin the deck out that much. Sheets is a small margin, but it’s a margin between a win and a loss.

I love Goblin Recruiter. I’m not sure why I haven’t picked one up but it should definitely be in here. I also like Shared Animosity so I’ll pick that up too.

Grenzo is so sweet. You just have to play with him to know just how awesome he is. No he’s not themed besides being a gobo, but his abilities are tits and very relevant in cEDH.

Speaking of cEDH, I find myself against a lot of blue which is why I run pyro/REB. They’re discard fodder for faithless looting or cathartic reunion when I don’t need them and they’re clutch against Cyclonic Rift.

Hellraiser Goblin’s forced attack ability has never been an issue really. I love to beat face and typically don’t care if a bunch of gobo dorks die.

I was actually considering adding another 3 drop mana rock because of krenko’s cost after taxing. He is heavily targeted and if I can’t get him to stick, it’s tough in the long run to ramp back into 8 and 10. This is also the reason for 36 lands; otherwise I would probably run 33-34.

Buried Ruin is just a random good utility land. It could probably be a mountain instead (buffing that scrying sheets!) but getting a Lightning Greaves back when I need it is pretty great.

Any reason you’re not running Sol Ring?

Also, Helm of the Host is overrated and way too expensive. Even if you copied gods, it’s not worth it.
