Goblin Grenade Discussion

Destroyerbirb on Circle of Protection Tribal

Scallywallwest - the wincon is Azor's Elocutors, and you achive hitting that through the Circle of Protections, but you could use Teferi, Master of Time, but he does get killed easily.

VampDemigod - Circle of Protection: Blue doesn't stop the game loss from Pact of Negation, as the Circle of Protection: Blue only prevents damage, whereas Pact of Negation kills you outside of damage. (Trust me, I am learning to become a judge!) The Pact of Negations are there as either Goblin Grenades to jump on, or counterspells to save an Azors elecutors.

I actually found this tiny metal band called Grave Titan who name a lot of their songs (and their band name!) after MtG cards. If you're looking for inspiration/want to check them out here's their Spotify. Not really to my music taste but perhaps to you guys' - at the very least the fact a song of theirs is called Goblin Grenade is pretty awesome.

Casual Goblin Decks, especially those that generate a lot of tokens, really should run at least 2 or 3 Goblin Grenades IMO...

You really can't beat the Mana to Damage ratio on it. The only downside is that it's a Sorcery and not an Instant, but it can be decent both in the early game and also make for a great finisher using the last of your Mana on a Turn towards the end.

I’d take out 1x Lightning Bolt/Goblin Grenade. If you can get Emrakul out as early as the Satyr's Cunning allows for, you shouldn’t be to worried about your opponent’s creatures, especially not the 1-5 toughness ones.

The cardpool is over 6000 cards and includes hits like Basalt Monolith, Laboratory Maniac, Path to Exile, Boros Charm, Priest of Titania, Buried Alive, Palace Jailer, Lightning Bolt, Chain Lightning, Lava Spike, Goblin Grenade, Grapeshot, Young Pyromancer, Lightning Helix...

And that is just from the first 4 pages on Scryfall, when set to price.

There are way too many broken cards in this format.

TheSurgeon on Krenko's Kamikaze Posse

Phostration- That's a good question that deserves an in-depth answer. I admit, Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin sounds good at first glance; and I admittedly, ran 2x of Kingpin in this in a prototyoe version. I took him out for several reasons.

First, the speed of the deck rarely allows for more than 3-4 goblins at a time. Goblin Grenade, Collateral Damage, Skirk Prospector, and the unavoidable dogpile-style blocking, keep the number of multiply-able targets rather low.

Second, the archetype. This is more of a burn style deck, and doesn't allow room for necessary pump cards. Therefore, the value from aggro, and (most importantly) the survivability of Kingpin are minimalized. Making this 3-cost goblin without Haste, an ill fit for this particular Tribal-goblin, burn build.

Hope that clears it up for ya! Thanks for the upvote and a great question!! Play on!

Maybe run Goblin Grenade?

tumamaenmondongo on Mono Red Pauper Stax

So, I saw your post in reddit, and realized I had an RB Angler Pox list, and a Mono Red LD list, but not a Mono red Pox/Ponza/Stax/Crack the Earth list (I believe this archetype is closer to Ponza and to a lesser degree Pox, since we don't play any prison pieces to be Stax, and we don't play typical LD spells as, for instance, Mono Black LD).

Anyway, I decided to put up a rough, unpolished decklist which I might try, and might give you some ideas for your own deck. Goldfishing it a bit, it seemed slightly more consistent because of the higher mass of cantrips, and lower land count. Take a look, and tell me whatcha think. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/mono-red-ldpoxcrack-the-earth/

Main changes are Akki Blizzard-Herder replacing Raze, since we can break akki's simmetry, but raze's gonna always be a 2 for 1, a higher mass of mana stones and cantripping artifacts, to keep the card flow, and have some mana sources after trembling and akki'ing, and finally Goblin Grenade/Heartfire which will sac our goblins to remove annoying creatures or burn our opponent's face.

The deck probably needs some more removal, and ways to get rid of wide boardstates, like your mainboard Electrickery, also doesn't have much of a board presence or a clear finisher as the RB version (you can check mine if you want https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/angler-pox/)

Finally, in case you wanna take a look, here's my creatureless mono red LD list, which I'll be updating anyday soon. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/creatureless-ponzaland-destruction/
