Yelrah93 on Help with building a deck …

3 days ago

I found a deck list someone was using in Magic Arena, I don't play arena, but it looked like a fun deck. 4 Battle Cry Goblin 2 Den of the Bugbear 4 Fireblade Charger 4 Goblin Javelineer 4 Hobgoblin Bandit Lord 2 You See a Pair of Goblins 4 Tin Street Cadet 4 Rally the Ranks 2 Goblin Trashmaster 3 Showdown of the Skalds 10 Mountain 3 Plains 4 Furycalm Snarl 4 Needleverge Pathway  Flip 2 Embercleave 4 Conspicuous Snoop

Only problem is, the Tin Street Cadet is Arena only, been trying to get a substitute for it, was thinking 4 Hobgoblin Captain because I own 4 already, but not sure what could be viable, any advice?

I agree Titan's Strength is better than Infuriate but Mutagenic Growth is better than both. I would also replace the shocks with Lava Dart . Both of those cards will allow you to get out an early Stormwing Entity . If you don’t wanna play the darts I would at least replace shock with Burst Lightning .

I think Embercleave is a bit out of place. You are usually only attacking with 1 or 2 creatures in these decks. If you absolutely want something like that I would suggest Temur Battle Rage .

forneyt thanks for pointing that out! I swapped in an Embercleave and got to drop it out tonight at my LGS. It's another decent way to get damage thru and more double strike is nice in here. The flash will keep it from being countered when Marisi is out.

I've seen a few b/r artifact lists - from Slag Fiend / Atog brews, strategies that try and cheat Sundering Titan into play, and lots of random combos. Red and black have some really cool artifact-loving creatures and spells - from Wildfire to Disciple of the Vault .

If you are trying to use Embercleave you want 1 drops and go-wide. If you want engineer you want artifacts that like dying and coming back. If you want Gaduk you want to sacrifice artifact creatures and bring them back.

For this list, which wants to go to midrange and pressure life totals hard, I'd run Lightning Bolt + Galvanic Blast + Shrapnel Blast as the spells, and play a lot of 1-of creatures that make or like artifacts if I was going more casual, or grab an established value engine for artifacts if I was trying to be competitive. Having 9 points of burn in hand is a lot easier in artifact lists with red, and black does excellently at applying the pressure to force the life total that low.

Right now, MH2 has given modular a kick, so Arcbound Worker , Myr Scrapling , Sparring Construct . Zabaz, the Glimmerwasp are all still good without dipping into white. Scrapyard Recombiner is also neat. Its not the only option - there are a lot of cards that support artifacts in dealing damage or grinding out attacks - they've been printed in almost every set and they are good. Look at competitive lists sideboards to get a stronger idea of what is out there, or nab strong artifacts that rotate out of standard.

I always find that monored EDH decks tend to have an issue getting enough cards in hand. I could see that being an issue here, especially with the "free" play abilities you have in! Some things that could help are cards like Fire Prophecy , Stolen Strategy , Faithless Looting , Jeska's Will , Cavalier of Flame , Mask of Memory , Neheb, Dreadhoard Champion, and Valakut Exploration .
Some non-creature cards that might have good synergy for the deck are Commander's Plate , Skullclamp , Whispersilk Cloak , Worldslayer , Embercleave , Mirage Mirror , Aggravated Assault , Gratuitous Violence , Chaosphere , and Sorrow's Path .
Some other creatures that could help are Breaker of Armies , Void Winnower , Marton Stromgald , Urabrask the Hidden , Legion Loyalist , Hellkite Charger , Flamerush Rider , Torbran, Thane of Red Fell , Soulbright Flamekin , and Siege Dragon . Also, any eldrazi if you wanna be that mean, especially the original set with annihilator.
The sacrifice clause on Purphoros can also have some fun opportunity, especially with cards like Blood Aspirant , Mycosynth Wellspring , and Ancient Stone Idol .
Oh! And if you do end up with that many mountains, Jaws of Stone , Landslide , Spawn of Thraxes , and Spire Barrage , could all be ridiculously powerful late-game!
Happy building!!!

DanMcSharp, the problem with that is, I'm looking forward to make this deck survive Rotation. So I may add [Vorpol Sword] or new artifacts.

I built this as "a, let's see if take what we will have Post Rotation and tweek it from there" sort of deck concept.

Depending on what happens with AVF and the new Innistrad sets I see tons of potential for this to thrive in Standard.

Though it also has the chance to fizzle out if I'm wrong.

Okay off that rant.

I Deck cycled to get advice for cards that would currently be survive Rotation.

Also, you accepted yes I wanted three Embercleave and two Shadowspear s.

Looks like a cool deck, but it's a shame there's nothing really fancy to get with Magda, Brazen Outlaw 's ability. You could consider adding a single Embercleave and/or Terror of Mount Velus just so you can actually close the game when you get up to 5 Treasure and attack ftw.
