Goblin Fireslinger Discussion
2 weeks ago
Oh, I see what you mean now about Siege-Gang with Lackey.
I bought Sigil of Sleep as soon as Looked at it. Goblin Fireslinger will be finding its way back into the deck. I’m thinking Raging Goblin for Fireslinger. Even though it would slow down my deck a little more. It feels like it would be better in the long run though.
This is what I’m thinking now...
4x Goblin Fireslinger
3x Sigil of sleep
1x Goblin Grenade
1x Black Vise
I’m thinking I need 4x Vise for the best odds of pulling it first hand. I was going to take 1x Vise out before.
Thank you DreadKhan for all your help and feedback.

In my mono-red deck, I also find I need more cards, so atm I have 4 Browbeat in it, and I have 4 Risk Factor I will likely be adding, though I may remove some or all Browbeats. These work in a fast/burn based deck, as either outcome is bad for them. You getting 3 cards means that even very early, you can hit them hard next turn, and later, you can likely play some of the 3 cards that turn (IE when you have 5 or 6 mana). The damage can be seen as a cost effective Lava Axe , since your win condition is summed up with 'Win Really Fast', it also has synergy. They will usually take the damage early, and let you draw later.
Raze x3 isn't very much land destruction, but since you get to target the land, you have to ask yourself if in your meta people run specific lands, or create in game via enchantment, lands that you would very much like to destroy. You also need to consider how many lands you need out to 'do your thing'. Do you need 5 mana to win? Maybe Raze isn't a perfect fit then, unless you've got some ramp. But you've got a glut of 1 mana spells, so if anything, you are much better off in this trade than your opponent. If people run decks that have lands that are worth targeting, then Raze is competitive. A Scorched Earth or two adds some bulk to your land destruction, and you really have a low average mana cost, so you might be able to pull this card off without much change.
Well, I wasn't meaning for you to use Siege-Gang unless you were using Lackey, as a way to cheat him out.

Goblin Guide and Black Vise are really good for early play. That’s what this deck was made for, fast play.
Late game Goblin Guide and Black Vise are not very effective.
I didn’t want to rely on Goblin guide and black vise to win, so I didn’t invest in it to much. Those land destruct cards are a good idea. Thanks

You have Goblin Fireslinger in the creature slot, and I don't know if you intended that or not. It just seems random enough to have been a mistake.

I think to really make Rakdos run, you need to get early damage through so you can cast him quick. Cards like Goblin Fireslinger , Spear Spewer , and Thermo-Alchemist come down early, so you can make sure to get the one damage through on turn three or four to cast Rakdos. Cards like Palace Siege (dragons mode), Subversion , and Retreat to Hagra also make sure to deal damage to your opponents, allowing you cast Rakdos and giving you value for more creature casts from the life loss.

A massive update this time. One that I'm very excited about. Here are the changes:
- Gilded Lotus -> Fanatical Firebrand
- Sword of the Animist -> Swiftfoot Boots
- Mana Crypt -> Thermo-Alchemist
- Neheb, the Eternal -> Pilgrim's Eye
- Abyssal Persecutor -> Coldsteel Heart
- Dire Fleet Ravager -> Rune-Scarred Demon
- Fiery Confluence -> Painful Truths
- Olivia Voldaren -> Goblin Fireslinger
- Damnation -> Damnable Pact
- Steel Hellkite -> It That Betrays
- Bojuka Bog -> Smoldering Marsh
- Oppression -> Artisan of Kozilek
- Rakdos, the Showstopper -> Theater of Horrors
- Sol Ring -> Lobber Crew
- Flame Rift -> Gamble
- Rakdos Charm -> Lotus Petal
- Duplicant -> Walking Ballista
- Scourge of the Throne -> Void Winnower
- Bloodgift Demon -> Mask of Memory
- Kokusho, the Evening Star -> Painful Lesson
- Oblivion Stone -> Necropotence
- Risk Factor -> Dark Ritual
- Whip of Erebos -> Plague Spitter
- Heartless Hidetsugu -> Arguel's Blood Fast Flip
Overall, the deck is faster and more consistent. Here's a summary of changes by card category:
- direct damage is now at lower cmc
- -1 Ramp
- +1 protection/haste
- +2 tutor
- +5 draw
- +1 anti-control
- -4 Creature removal
- -2 graveyard hate
- -1 discard
- -1 extra attack
- -1 lifegain/recursion
- +1 removal
So the changes overall are lower cmc, more draw and tutor, less creature removal and less utility (graveyard hate, extra attacks, etc.) Overall, the early turn plays to get direct damage and get Rakdos out are far more prevalent. The deck is more aggressive and more focused now, and plays much smoother.
And yes, this is the only deck I have where I've taken out Sol Ring . It's simply better to have only colored mana in order to cast Rakdos as consistently as possible!

Just glancing at the list, I think it needs to lose Vexing Devil and Goblin Fireslinger and put in a Bident of Thassa . The devil doesn't do much in EDH, but doubling up on bugs every combat just seems good. If you're going combat heavy, something like Berserkers' Onslaught can get pretty nutty. Arjun, the Shifting Flame is another good reusable wheel. If you wanna abuse drawing cards outside of your command, Psychic Corrosion and Sphinx's Tutelage are great cards.

Hmm, the biggest problem I have with Ashling the Pilgrim is that the effect is kinda expensive/slow. Although, once you do get it off, it will usually do quite a bit of damage and can likely get you most of the way to getting out several cards for free. I think I'll try to fit it in somewhere, I'll probably switch it in for Goblin Fireslinger?
