wallisface on The New Most Competitive Modern Deck--Dryads

Omniscience_is_life, some examples of how the 5 modern-playable tribes operate, to give you an idea of what you’re up against:

The above decks can all win their games by turn 4 or 5, most of them giving the opponent constant grief while doing so.

As a further example, Slivers are not a modern-viable tribe, because just throwing creatures down on the board and hoping for the best doesn’t cut it in the modern environment.

I think you need to consider what you’re actually getting out of Dryads, and whether you want this to be a competitive deck, or a casual/meme deck.

Makes sense. Maybe sleeve up this deck with some proxy cards and test to see which version you like best. After some thought, I think your best bet will be replacing your ib-halfhearts and maybe coat of arms with Goblin Ringleader, that's probably your best bet for helping your deck survive into the long game.

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!

sdidonato: With how the deck is turning out in this iteration I think Goblin Ringleader may finally be a good fit. Going to try to find a place to test him in.

paytongamer: It will probably be a while before I can play it in person again, but as soon as I do I will definitely post my thoughts here

SirChris39, thank you. I appreciate that. The most important goblins to include are as follows: Goblin Recruiter, Goblin Ringleader, Skirk Prospector, and Goblin Chirurgeon. Also include protection, haste enablers, and untappers of your choice. Lightning Greaves and Thousand-Year Elixir are notable in that they fulfill multiple needs at once. I hope this helps you brew!

Liquidbeaver I just noticed your Muxus, Goblin Grandee. Goblin Ringleader would also be another inclusion for a similar effect.

Mind you, the ability isn't as good, since they go in your hand (with Ringleader) instead of in play (with Muxus), but still thins your deck out & allows you to draw cards sooner (as early as turn 2 or 3) instead of turn 4 or 5 with Muxus.

At least it doesn’t take 45 minutes to play!

I know didn’t design the cards either. I did make this deck, just as I made an earlier version of it that ran Goblin Ringleader. I don’t claim any special genius on making RDW.

Sorry I insulted your boring deck bro.
