OtherWorldlyShadow on Goblin Electromancer and Splice

1 month ago

Note, if you have enough Goblin Electromancer s on the field, you can eventually reduce the cost of a splice effect. For example, if you have two of the goblins out and splice a Glacial Ray onto another Glacial Ray , it will cost RR instead of 1RR. Though, if you only have one goblin, it will still cost 1RR. This is because the splice becomes an additional cost and is part of the total casting cost of the card, but it is not separate to the spell.

702.46a and 601.2f are the relevant rules.

@DuTogira: You're not really thinking about where Chrome Mox fits into the format vs. Simian Spirit Guide . Simian Spirit Guide is like an uncounterable Lotus Petal that isn't shut off by Stony Silence with the only downside being you can't recur it. Chrome Mox requires you to pitch a card and it's an artifact that has to be activated.

Where does that even fit in Modern? Cascade decks don't play it because Violent Outburst into Chrome Mox is all kinds of feel bad. Storm doesn't really want it because of the card disadvantage. You could do something stupid like Island -> Chrome Mox -> Exile red card -> Goblin Electromancer , but that leaves you with only 3 cards to try and win with (4 on your draw step). They basically have to be Gifts Ungiven , ritual, ritual, Manamorphose . If your opponent Lightning Bolt s the 2/2 or blows up the Chrome Mox , you won't be able to do anything other than cast Gifts Ungiven and pass. Griselshoal is in a similar spot, where it's already struggling to get the combo running. And Urza decks aren't even playing a full set of Mox Amber , so it's not like another mox that struggles to work because 70% of the deck is colorless is adding anything.

So where does that leave Chrome Mox ? Probably in a similar position from when it was in Extended. It gets used like another copy of Aether Vial for aggro decks or another mana rock for midrange. The most likely places you'd see Chrome Mox are in decks like D&T, Infect, Fish, Ponza, and the odd combo deck like Oops! All Spells or Griselshoal.

I'm just speculating and obviously I can be wrong. I think, though, that a more serious question needs to be had regarding Modern's banlist. If we can unban Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Bitterblossom , maybe we need to reevaluate what cards are problematic and what cards are on there because they were too good in Standard, Extended, or previous versions of Modern. We also need to consider which cards are causing other cards to get banned, Urza, Lord High Artificer or Ancient Stirrings being good examples.

Personally I’d replace Snapcaster with Arclight cuz I’m cheap haha

Another thing is that you are playing 4x Goblin Electromancer but only 5 of the 23 instants and sorceries you’re playing benefit from the goblin’s ability. I’d go for some higher-cost damage or card draw... perhaps Hieroglyphic Illumination or Supreme Will ?

I also really like Quicken — it allows you to play sorceries off-turn, increasing the pool of valid answers, and worst case it just cycles.

trocroi I considered it, but was concerned that adding creatures and removing spells might dilute the ability of the deck to do it’s thing. Do you think it’d be worth dropping 1 each of Goblin Electromancer , Guttersnipe , and Snapcaster Mage to run 3 Arclight Phoenix ?

Thanks for the suggestions! I had Goblin Electromancer in but cut it to find space for other cards. Do you think it’s better than Curious Homunculus  Flip?

Shreds of Sanity looks good, I’ll have to find room for it and Voidmage Prodigy .

cool deck!!!
Goblin Electromancer is good, and a wizard!
as it looks like you are running lots of wizards, Voidmage Prodigy is a good control piece for you.
also some recursion will help you a lot, my favorites are Underworld Breach , Past in Flames , Shreds of Sanity .
cheers and have fun!!!

Mcat1999: i get that you're probably joking, but Karfell Harbinger likely won't see play outside of standard and pauper. spellslinger decks in nonrotating formats generally prefer Goblin Electromancer or Baral, Chief of Compliance. to put it another way, i don't think a white counterpart to harbinger would be the kind of white ramp you're looking for anyway. imagine if it produced white mana that could only be spent on enchantments. you probably wouldn't use it.
