goblinguiderevealpls Demonic tutor

I am a competitive modern GP/pptq player, trying for best in canada!

I also play a lot of edh, legacy and draft.

Im known to brew very powerful, rude decks, see the 10 on my profile if you're interested in winning games and losing friends :)

always happy to suggest good cards for your deck if you're willing to accept my opinion!

I often come off as rude. I never mean to be, I have autism and im not afraid to tell someone which cards they run are bad or that there are superior options.

I am extremely blunt and mildly opinionated which often makes me seem like an asshole, if I have offended you, than I am sorry

I promote the use of degenerate chaos decks, combo/control decks and the use of high synergy combos, and will gladly share them :)

I only play paper magic, so i dont care for online leagues

Favorite cards and formats

Goblin Guide: modern

Nekusar, the Mindrazer: cEDH multiplayer

Keranos, God of Storms: French edh

Favorite decks:

Nekusar forcefeed

Bought the jeleva deck on release, fell in love with nekusar after i built prossh and found his lack of opponent interaction boring, Currently fine tuning and investing in the expensive parts of the deck to make it as interactive yet competitive as possible with wheels and support spells.

Currently looking to write a primer based on my thousands of games playing him, but im not so good at explanations, help writing one is appreciated

Keranos french stax/land destruction

Yes, im THAT GUY. I also built a multiplayer variant :p

Lastly, i play goblins, red deck winsand affinity in a high end competitive modern tier 1 modern league in the GTA

Im always happy to suggest some good cards or help you thin out and tune your deck, or simply throw in my 2 cents! as long as you're willing to accept my help, im willing to give it!

Said on the soul sisters...

#1

best cards in soul sisters are Serra Ascendant and Martyr of Sands, thats why its an "aggro" deck cuz it can play a 6/6 turn 1, you're missing both and only have the sisters, how do you plan on winning outside of pridemate?

Mentor of the Meek is a good draw card, and Champion of the Parish is a cheaper cmc ajani pridemate

Ranger of Eos tutors most creatures in the deck

Kor Firewalker and Auriok Champion are insanely good sideboard cards, and Lingering Souls and Timely Reinforcements are good ways to overrun with tokens and gain loads of life,

splashing red you can run 1 or 2 Norin the Wary if you want virtually untouchable etb soul sisters life on both end steps, and it combos well with pridemate, cotparish and Impact Tremors

if you need more control and defense vs combo you can run stuff like Thoughtseize, more copies of Inquisition of Kozilek, Surgical Extraction/ExtirpateLightning Bolt/helix, Boros Charm

sideboard you're also gonna want Stony Silence and/or Kataki, War's Wage for affinity and Rest in Peace for graveyard hate

scary power level sidisi deck you have here, and the name is clever!

honestly cant think of what to suggest, pretty much everything os here

maybe Mana Drain, Aluren, Chains of Mephistopheles for more self mill, perhaps some defense like Damnation, Toxic Deluge, Living Death or Cyclonic Rift?

PhyrexianGameplay,

you're absolutely right.

im weird in that I use sideboard for my edh decks as a kind of "super maybeboard". what i mean is, the sideboard is maybeboard cards that i either cant find a cut for, are great but too situational, or i dont run in certain playgroups, for example, Blightsteel Colossus is a no-brainer, but i only run it in my tier 1 budgetless playgroup, the playgroup i usually play this with is far more casual, so i dont run regular staples like Demonic Tutor because i dont need them, and i usually play better commanders in higher end playgroups

in the case of stuff like Feldon of the Third Path, Crawlspace and Wurmcoil Engine, they are good enough to run but i can't find room for them, and i already need to make some cuts to get more lands, but this deck is very difficult to tune due to its rubix cube playstyle :(

sorry if that's confusing, but the sideboard is kind of a second maybeboard in most of my decks, or in some cases its more of 1v1 sideboards in the case that i dont play multiplayer

also the biggest difference i noticed upgrading from krenko would probably be that green opens up a ton of card draw spells that can be conspired, and cards like Harmonize or Benefactor's Draught draw much more cards than Cathartic Reunion, due the discard being very high cost when convoked, but as im sure you know, mono red is very lacking in card draw

October 10, 2017 6:41 a.m.

i think that norin does it better :/ and yea krenko has very little recursion and norin, slobad and daretti usually play with chaos better, it certainly makes it harder for you to burn out to run chaos but i already have a nekusar and norin chaos deck and i just wanted more colors, this deck has the advantage of Regrowth spells, token doublers and insane mana like Food Chain, plus its more versatile with spells such as Heroic Intervention

not to mention resolving Protean Hulk usually wins me the game, and Earthcraft allows me to tap the tokens for mana then sac them to food chain, prospector, skullclamp etc

i played a 1v1 game recently where i played my entire deck by casting a conspired Genesis Wave for 9, getting more than 10 permanents and putting a Past in Flames in graveyard, I then conspired Tooth and Nail to get the 4 6-7 cmc creatures into play with 8x tokens with all 3 token doublers out, i then saced protean hulk to tutor for Craterhoof Behemoth with Coat of Arms out and a total of 380 tokens for 760 power and toughness,

i then sacced around 20 tokens for mana, drew all 20 cards left in my deck with Fecundity, then used the mana to cast past in flames and conspire/Mirari every spell in my deck as well as having all of my creatures etb with purphoros and 8x tokens, come to think of it i could have easily have won with Altar of the Brood for 380 tokens plus the 22 creatures and wort

its more resilient and even faster than krenko in that it has green protectiom and conspired ramp spells, it is a hybrid deck that plays partially like krenko and partially like a storm deck, for example krenko cant cast Empty the Warrens for absurd amounts of mana and double the tokens and mana with green

yes, crawler was in the infant stages of this list along with other slow creatures like Jace's Archivist

nekusar definitely does have a bounty on his head a majority of the time, which is why I run a decent amount of countermagic and control/permission

like most "efficient" edh decks, this deck does not require the use of its commander to win effectively, and he is often used as a blocker, or I simply cast him when my opponents are tapped out or when i have a counterspell in hand and can protect him enough to start wheeling, but he certainly does get answered more than the other cards in the deck, but i dont need to cast him to be able to kill opponents with mill or damage from cards like Chains of Mephistopheles, Underworld Dreams or Liliana's Caress

generally, the most trouble i have had is from selesyna or creature combo decks, since I run a very limited amount of potential blockers, and being spell-central renders me weak to token swarm, which is the main reason I run mainly utility creatures and a lot of creature answers like Evacuation, Damnation, Toxic Deluge, Cryptic Command or Rakdos Charm, and in the earlier stages i ran things such as Propaganda and Crawlspace, and Torpor Orb

secondly, I've found that Aura Shards or Bane of Progress effects really gimp the deck, since outside of nekusar himself a lot of my wheel value comes from artifacts and enchantments such as Dream Halls, Waste Not, Underworld Dreams, Teferi's Puzzle Box, or mana rocks, also hoser cards such as Spirit of the Labyrinth can stop wheels, and since grixis lacks any real form of enchantment removal, I will have to rely only on countermagic or bounce to answer aura shards or the like

other than hatebears, token swarm and stax effects that gimp spell decks such as Nether Void being my main weakness, I also find that wheeling a lot enables the HELL out of flashback or reanimator decks like Kess, Dissident Mage, Sedris, the Traitor King, or Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, due to wheels filling up graveyards relatively fast.

to combat this, i run graveyard hate such as Rakdos Charm and Bojuka Bog, and previously,Leyline of the Void. the reason being that when i wheel multiple times and they have a large graveyard with threats like Golgari Grave-Troll and Past in Flames, i can then exile those threats, which then allows me to cast Timetwister for maximum advantage as I shuffle away 50 cards while they get zero

essentially the main weaknesses of a wheel spell deck would be decks that take advantage of wheel effects or my lack of blocks, so creature heavy, reanimator, or stax decks usually give me trouble with combat damage, graveyard recursion, and combo denial respectively.

hope that was informative enough!

congrats on #1 decklord!

from a fellow edh/modern player

October 8, 2017 1:30 p.m.

thanks for the comment and advice!

i had Brightstone Ritual and Shared Animosity in krenko, but ive found that ritual isnt as good since half my creatures arent goblins, animosity definitely has potential still, and i will re add it since its a good card. Marton is mainly for the 3rd 6 cmc slot for Birthing Pod curve, but animosity does wear it better

i literally just took out Chancellor of the Forge in favor of Protean Hulk, Avenger of Zendikar usually always spawns more tokes if i pod or chord for 7, but having all 3 isnt a bad idea

urabrask and banner are both things I own that arent in use, they do seem good here for card advantage but im not sure what to cut for them, i definitely will playtest with them a bit

Triumph of the Hordes is nasty, im not a huge fan of infect in edh but ill definitely pick one up for my high end playgroup

also, I havent got any good usage out of the hideaway lands as i would have liked, and gorge does enter tapped a lot of the time, so i will cut those in favor of basic lands until i can acquire a Gaea's Cradle and Taiga xD

thanks again for the input

may your goblin tokens be plentiful

hey fellow goblin guru,

what do you think of my wort goblin token edh deck?

it runs ib and functions very similar except for the green cards, and she was a direct color upgrade from my first edh general, Krenko, Mob Boss! but the opinion of another good goblin player in regards to my list would be greatly appreciated!

October 6, 2017 3:44 p.m.

AnomyNouse,

its already in the sideboard and considered for mainboard slotting, along with Outpost Siege,

what would you cut for it? i had trouble finding a free slot

October 6, 2017 9:30 a.m.

haha red is my lifeblood, i too like black and blue, my best commander second to this is Nekusar, the Mindrazer, and i play burn in modern and legacy xD

October 5, 2017 10:20 p.m.

thanks DoomOnYOU,

krenko was my first edh deck and i had grown bored of tapping him to win games, so i thought id upgrade to wort with my goblin babies and added green spells to enhance its explosiveness, and play more of a versatile list with some level of skill requirement, its actually really fun! and yea, Benefactor's Draught has so far been absolutely bonkers on Isochron Scepter with some tokens and wort out,

its so deliciously explosive now i save it for only my high end playgroup, thanks for the compliments and upvote!

October 5, 2017 8:28 p.m.

would Anafenza, the Foremost be a good sideboard?

what about Kitchen Finks or Dryad Militant?

nice deck though, rockin' goyfs so the opponent sodium content is definitely high

+1 and junk
