Goblin Matron Discussion

Ben773 on Purphoros, God of Tokens

Hello, Nice list! As someone has pointed out, have you tried running Coveted Jewel? It is 3 mana=draw 3. You may protect it with tokens, destroy it or even funnier: steal it back with Treasure Nabber (which you can tutor with Goblin Matron or Goblin Recruiter). You may also be lucky to have a Panharmonicon on the field to draw 6. Also, what do you think about Idol of Oblivion, Jeska's Will and Valakut Exploration?

Deadshot5459 on Angelic Goblins

Cool deck, nice planewalkers, but I felt that you should have more angels, plus, for a goblin deck, it didn't really have many goblins, so a couple things. 1: you should have had Krenko, Mob Boss, this card would have given you the necessary goblins to really make this deck havoc. Plus you should have had more angels and spells that really give all your creatures a huge buff, like Divine Visitation with the doubled goblins created every turn with Krenko, and you get 4/4 every turn, to get the Krenko you should have had Goblin Matron and finally, my just about favorite goblin of them all, you should have included a couple Brash Taunter, now I recently got this card from a draft, and my oh my, it is really good, if you really want to, have a spell that makes it hexproof.

multimedia on COOL sac Korvold deck?!

3 months ago

Hey, nice update. I think you'll find that Korvold is an amazing Commander with sacrifice strategies.

Murderous Redcap and Putrid Goblin are other persist Goblins to combo with Grumgully and a sac outlet. Goblin Recruiter and Goblin Matron are tutors to get Goblins which is also nice with Dockside. Recruiter can setup the top of your library with Goblins to draw and assemble the Goblin combo with Korvold. Get Dockside first which makes mana with treasures to sac to draw with Korvold the rest of the Goblins and cast them.

Because you have Dockside then Temur Sabertooth can combo with it as long as Dockside makes five or more treasures then it can make infinite mana with treasures and bounce of Dockside with Sabertooth. This combo with Korvold draws into your deck letting you cast all cards in your deck or draw until you find Mayhem Devil as a win condition by sacing treasures.

Tireless Tracker, Mystery Booster version, is very good with Korvold as a repeatable source of permanents to sac just by playing a land. Sacing a clue with Korvold draws two cards and grows Korvold as well as Tracker. Without Korvold Tracker's clues can be a backup draw source.

A budget card that's overlooked with Korvold is Jolrael, Mwonvuli Recluse. On your turn if you draw a card with Korvold then you create a 2/2 Cat. She can be a repeatable source of Cats just by drawing a card which can be sac fodder for Korvold. She can also trigger on your opponents turns, if you draw two cards, which is good with clues and treasures with Korvold. Jolrael's activated ability can pump all your creatures especially Goblin tokens for a huge attack which can be a backup win condition with infinite mana from Dockside + Sabertooth without Korvold.

How many devil tokens does Zurzoth, Chaos Rider usually end up making for you? Does Hanweir Garrison usually get through enough to consistently make tokens? Are Past in Flames and Shreds of Sanity usually dead draws for you? Do you usually find that you have enough mana to grind out some cards with Subira, Tulzidi Caravanner? What are your thoughts on 0-cost creatures like Kobolds of Kher Keep? What does Goblin Matron usually tutor for? Does Krenko, Mob Boss usually survive long enough to tap? Is Empty the Warrens usually better than Beetleback Chief? Do either of the Nehebs usually end up connecting?

Some ideas:

If you have the budget, are willing to splash black, and are fine with combo, you could lean into Conspicuous Snoop and include Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Boggart Harbinger, and Sling-Gang Lieutenant. That way, you won't need to outlast the opponents because you can combo win on one turn.

You could splash blue for Distant Melody or green for Collected Company. If you want to stay in mono-red, Goblin Ringleader and Goblin Matron can give you some nice card advantage.

If you're just playing casually and aren't too picky about modern legality, you can play Muxus, Goblin Grandee, perhaps with Skirk Prospector to help get him out early.

Also, both Mogg War Marshal and Goblin Instigator are better than Krenko's Command because they can be played through snoop or warren.

Hope this helps!
