michaelqdoherty Why do you prefer the Dragon Fodder over Goblin Instigator? They are very similar, but instigator is better facing Echoing Truth and Echoing Decay

passimo on The Shadow over Goblinnsmouth

Hey Gattison, I agree that is how the universe works =).

Removing a Gryff would be problematic, because sometimes it's hard to draw eldrazi, having only 7 of them.

I'll think about removing a Goblin Instigator , or better a Dragon Fodder , and a Swiftwater Cliffs , but I'm unconfortable in having 16 lands, needs testing.

As for Goblin Chirurgeon , motion approved! I only need to acquire them.

Thanks for the advice! Cheers!

legendofa on Garth one-eye's "create a copy"

4 months ago

For a little more background to my question, the word "create" has always been used in the context of tokens ( Dragon Fodder ), and "copy" is either initially a verb for instants and sorceries ( Twincast ) or a clone for permanents ( Sculpting Steel ). The new phrase "create a copy" doesn't follow either of these definition.

Hello friend, great deck. Is there any particular reason you dont have Goblin Instigator ? Since you have Dragon Fodder and Krenko's Command I figured that would be included as it has more synergy with Muxus, Goblin Grandee and other goblin tutors.

ClockworkSwordfish on Winota's Legends

If you want to really make Winota sing, the answer is tokens! She can only pull human cards out of your library, so the nonhuman versions of the same aren't pulling as much weight as they could. If you drop something like Dragon Fodder or Raise the Alarm , however, that means two creatures who get to dig for a big, powerful human when they attack! Cards like Spectral Procession and Lingering Souls just up the numbers even more from there. Sure, the tokens probably won't live through combat, but when they're replacing themselves with fatties like Cabal Patriarch , Greven, Predator Captain and Kaervek the Merciless ... well, you probably won't mind too much!

Sooo what do you want for this deck? Do you need token producers? If that is the route you want to go down, there are some other cards you should look at:

Sacrifice outlets. I see you already have Viscera Seer, that's a really good one, but you might also consider Goblin Bombardment, Ashnod's Altar, and maybe Spawning Pit. Also Vampiric Rites.

More aristocrats. You are in the right colors for these, so this shouldn't be hard to fill out. Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Falkenrath Noble; I think there might be some red ones that make the creature itself deal damage to any target? If so, those should be an auto include what with the assassins having deathtouch.

As far as actual tokens go, it seems you mostly have one-off effects; if you want more of these, you should look for cards that get you tokens with a high amount of efficiency. If you had enough mana rocks and stuff like that I would suggest Kuldotha Rebirth, but for now I don't think that is going to do it as often as you want. Probably you want stuff like Krenko's Command, Dragon Fodder, Hordeling Outburst, etc. for this category.

In terms of token producing that recursively gives you value, I would suggest Assemble the Legion for sure; also, maybe Ophiomancer (expensive but very good with a sacrifice outlet) and any of the Goonies would be good, though technically they aren't tokens, they just come back a lot (Reassembling Skeleton, Nether Traitor, Bloodsoaked Champion, Bloodghast, Tenacious Dead, either Squee would work). If you really do want tokens to come out and be there at the same time and start to build up a board state with them, you should probably use ... well, I dunno, you're in white. Figure it out.

Also, one last thing: Cathars' Crusade.

In terms of what to cut, I would look reaaally hard at the top of your curve. I would probably drop Gravewaker at least. I think Necrotic Hex is probably good in your deck, because you have so many creatures, but just in general I think it's better in a deck that actually cares about either the word "sacrifice" or the zombies for being zombies rather than the zombies being bodies. Lena seems bad here, I don't know how many nontoken creatures you'll have. I think Crush Contraband could get cut for more efficient removal, maybe Anguished Unmaking or Utter End if you want a budget version. Moan of the Unhallowed is ... straight up bad I think.

Let me know if these were helpful or if you need more cuts.

Hey. Like the deck. Nice to see dragons getting played. Have you thought about doing a split between Vessel of Volatility and Simian Spirit Guide or perhaps using goblins as your early aggro and sacrificing them to Brightstone Ritual . There's even a card called Dragon Fodder that is themed for exactly this kind of deck. +1 good job.

I don't think you have nearly enough token targets for all of your Polymorph spells. It's a bit hard to count but I think you have about 9, and most of those are lands (which you might need)?

There's a lot of efficient token generation effects in your colors:
Dragon Fodder / Krenko's Command
Saproling Migration
Arachnogenesis
Lazotep Plating is also a fantastic card that happens to create a token.

Sandwurm Convergence is a great enchantment hit that would also allow you to keep the Polymorph train running.

I don't think you have nearly enough cycling to take advantage of Unpredictable Cyclone or Hollow One (which is also a sad hit off of Polymorph) so I would cut them.

Also, Polymorphing into a cascade creature does not get you the cascade trigger. I know they might be in there as pseudo-Polymorph effects, but there are so many legit Polymorph effects that I don't think the ones you have are worth it. Maelstrom Wanderer is a possible exception because it has a decent ability if you hit it with Polymorph.

Titanoth Rex and Yidaro, Wandering Monster are super underwhelming.

Here are some other creatures to consider that are better Polymorph hits, because they have ETB effects:
Apex Altisaur
Terastodon
Nezahal, Primal Tide

Transmogrify is a polymorph spell you've missed, and it also works as a pseudo-removal spell. Reality Scramble is great, too, because you can polymorph any permanent.

Finally, you might want a few other Mutate creatures because they can retrigger Illuna. I'd only consider big creatures that you don't mind hitting on Polymorph, so:
Sawtusk Demolisher
Auspicious Starrix
