Goblin Matron Discussion

SQUID-MAGIC on Do Goblins eat Rats or do Rats eat Goblins?

2 weeks ago

Thanks for the Feedback 0rc! I forgot to mention this, but I built this deck on a budget, and I would absolutely love to have Grim Tutor, but it just can't fit my price range. I will definitely consider Goblin Matron, but I'm not exactly sure that I'll need to tutor for much. Thanks for taking a look!

Nice Modern Deck. I’d throw in Goblin Matron just to get your combo pieces more consistently. Maybe Grim Tutor as well.

You might want to swap Boggart Harbinger for Goblin Matron Also Warren Instigator + Madcap Skills is pretty insane, it makes instigator hard to block, hurts badly AND drop two gobs from your hand. I do personally run them instead of your Frenzied Goblin. You might want to give it a try ;)

I love Korvold, Fae-Cursed King, he was and still is my first deck I made from a Brawl deck. I have Words of Wilding and Animation Module as backup infinite combos with Ashnod's Altar but I love the combos you made. I was planning on making a goblin tribal but maybe I already have Krenko, Mob Boss Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin Squee, the Immortal Goblin Cratermaker and Goblin Matron. All really fun in Korvold. I also put in The Ozolith to make people rethink getting rid of Korvold when Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin is out because then I could just make a ton of token next turn.

Epicurus on Should Tutors Have Additional Effects?

4 weeks ago

I don't think they should have additional effects. Mostly, they're utilized in EDH for setting up infinite combos. As such, they're powerful enough as it is, since most infinite combos are 2-card combos in a 99 card deck. And while the idea of an EDH deck with a 2-card combo and a slew of tutors seems incredibly boring and uncreative to me, and thus I don't use them, I know that the top competitive decks do, and giving those decks an additional benefit from the tutors is incredibly unfair to those of us who play for fun.

I have Demonic Tutor in my casual, semi-modern cascade deck, only because there are so many one-ofs in that deck. And Fetch Lands are a staple in my EDH decks, because I like to be able to thin out the lands during the course of the game, lessening the chances of drawing lands late-game. And I have both Goblin Matron and Goblin Recruiter in my Fling Squee deck. And spells like Entomb and Buried Alive are staples for reanimator, but don't do much good in any other build. And even then, the idea that I could gain an added bonus from a card that gets me exactly what I need earlier than I may have drawn it, sounds needlessly overpowered.

Card advantage is powerful enough. Raising the percentages is even more powerful. That Shhhh don't need to be more than it is.

Legacy can abuse it with Conspicuous Snoop now, fetching it and a Goblin Matron is an easy win.

Setting up other combos was way easier than before, with a strong 2-drop untapper in Corridor Monitor and a strong 4 drop in Felidar Guardian. Both go well with Kiki and Pod now!

Since your deck can use more creatures, there are a lot of cool creatures that I've liked lately.

Captain Lannery Storm is a great source of early ramp. Cartographer's Hawk is a new one you can try out. Verge Rangers is also a new one to test. Either of the generic recuiters (Recruiter of the Guard and Imperial Recruiter) are great early. I've also seen people have success with playing a small goblin package. Since Dockside Extortionist is a great card, you play a Goblin Matron that can tutor it. You can also play great goblins like Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker or Goblin Rabblemaster or Legion Warboss. You can go all in and use Goblin Recruiter

If/when you're able to pick up a copy, I highly recommend Ancient Tomb. It's a super strong way to ramp- just by making a land drop! I've been testing Weathered Wayfarer as a way to tutor for lands I need for each situation. If I need to ramp I grab Ancient Tomb. If I need double strike I grab Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion. If I need haste I grab Hanweir Battlements  Flip. etc.

Lots of ideas to play with :D have fun!

multimedia on Hail to Kolaghan King!

Hey, for the low budget good job for your first Commander deck.

Consider a Goblin and Dragon theme? This would give your overall deck a more focused theme instead of just playing random creatures such as Diregraf Ghoul and Spinal Centipede. I suggest this because when Kolaghan attacks she pumps any creatures you control and Goblins can make lots of token creatures. This kind of strategy is call go wide. Which means attacking with lots of creatures, a wide battlefield of creatures.

Cards to consider adding:

Other Draw/Tutors

Other Ramp

Other Dragons

Other Goblins

Other Removal

Other Lands

Good luck with your deck.
