Goblin Ringleader Discussion

thinkoriginal on Ulasht's Harvest 2.0

Thank you very much for the suggestions! They are all very strong. A few of the changes, though, like adding in the Blood Pod lines, would make this deck play like a weaker version of my current Marath cEDH deck: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/01-10-19-wrath-of-marath/

Some suggestions I will definitely be making, though:

Changing out Reclamation Sage for Caustic Caterpillar is stellar.

I agree with your assessment of Wood Elves, and Glimpse of Nature would fit perfectly there.

Mycoloth I have waffled back and forth on, originally it was Siege-Gang Commander, but I think Oakhame Adversary (Grob) would be perfect in that spot.

As much as I love Krosan Grip and Beast Within, I feel one may have to go the same way that it did in Marath: cut for Nature's Claim.

As for Splinter Twin, it is great, but really hard to reliably tutor for without White. And Goblin Ringleader is in the list because of Goblin Recruiter. Recruiter is very easy to tutor for, and is a super-reliable source of cards. Any Goblin pile that Recruiter searches up is topped by Ringleader, who then draws the rest of the Goblins you put on top. It's the reason Recruiter is banned in Legacy, and provides that same gas-laden card draw here.

some super cheap goblin cards to upgrade your deck are as follows; Goblin Cratermaker, Goblin Matron, Goblin Ringleader, Skirk Prospector, if you need more help let me know!

I've played a lot of reaper king decks including the tribal tribal version. I highly highly recommend Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero , Skyshroud Poacher , etc. as repeatable changeling tutors. Moggcatcher is particularly nice with Goblin Recruiter and Goblin Ringleader (2 + 4 mana over 2 turns == tutor at least 4 changelings). Sliver Overlord + Amoeboid Changeling combo is also conspicuously absent; it's totally on theme and very nice to have when facing down something like Avacyn, Angel of Hope .

As for tribal payoffs, one card that I've found to be really good with a bunch of changelings in play is Voidmage Prodigy , especially because this deck has no counter magic otherwise. I also really like Gemhide Sliver for ramp and Azami, Lady of Scrolls for card draw.

On the topic of more general recommendations, Bloom Tender and Faeburrow Elder are excellent ramp in these kinds of decks. For additional vindicate triggers, I really like Flameshadow Conjuring (which goes infinite with Deadeye Navigator and Bloom Tender fyi). Finally, Conflux is usually fantastic.

Here's my (slightly outdated) list if you're interested

  • Not sure what your budget is but here are cards I would recommend:
  • For starts Id get black in your board it helps a lot beacuse: Sling-Gang Lieutenant and Munitions Expert are amazing
  • I would put in 1 (max 2) Krenko, Mob Boss when it lands it accelerates hard
  • Goblin Ringleader a play set is 1$ and helps the deck a lot.
  • Pashalik Mons can help the deck for when your small goblins die, I would run 1
  • Goblin Warchief seems amazing
  • Goblin Matron lets you find the perfect goblin always
  • Goblin Chieftain typically lords (+1/+1 to a creature type) is an auto 4 of. However if you are more mid-range comboy then dont have as many
  • Mogg War Marshal the echo seems really bad at first but then you have death triggers which is free damage so its good id have 4
  • Goblin Piledriver Gets very big and blue creatures cannot block it, and cannot be targeted by blue bounce spells. (can still be countered though :( )
  • Goblin Cratermaker is a goblin that is cheap removal
  • Skirk Prospector lets you play big goblins sooner. Can also synergize well with cards being there is the death trigger. You could swing for 10 then sac 10 goblins draining them for 10, which kills them with 10 power on the board.
  • Mogg Fanatic is a oldy but goody, Its worth considering 1.
  • Tarfire if you want to be memey this technically counts as a goblin (which means you can search for it as if it was a goblin even though its an instant).
  • Aether Vial is a big money card but sooooo much fun
  • Auntie's Hovel helps your mana base and so does Cavern of Souls id play 4 of each with unlimited money
  • Bloodstained Mire is great it filters and can find Blood Crypt I would then run 4 mountains and one swamp. You want to run about 22 lands here no less then 21. Generally for deck construction going below 19 lands is a bad idea (minus a few combo decks, but they run a lot of blue filter cards).
  • Blood Moon is a funny card to run
  • Goblin Chainwhirler can be fun as well
  • If artifacts are a problem then play Goblin Trashmaster
  • Black also gets you Earwig Squad
  • Another way to build it would be like this: OmniGoblin which is a combo kinda deck

GhostChieftain on Why Does Everyone Use Boggart ...

In addition to what Caerwyn said, another thing that is mildly relevant is that Goblin Matron , Goblin Recruiter , and Boggart Harbinger can all tutor Boggart Birth Rite , and it is relevant to Sensation Gorger , Auntie's Hovel , and Goblin Ringleader .

A bit of redundancy is pretty good.

Goblin Ringleader seems like a perfect fit for an aggressive goblin deck.

Goblin Ringleader may be a psuedo Lead the Stampede for goblins too!
