enpc on Favorite creature recursion in Rakdos

Garna, Bloodfist of Keld doesn't need the dying creature to be non-token, why not use a bunch of token engines like Goblin Assault, Chancellor of the Forge (a good card to actually use recursion on), Goblin Rabblemaster, Legion Warboss, Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin and Krenko, Mob Boss. Then you can use cards like Pashalik Mons, Weirding Shaman and even potentially Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician as sac outlets. You also have access to cards like Squee, Dubious Monarch, Squee, the Immortal and Squee, Goblin Nabob (bascially all the Squee value).

I'm not saying build a goblin deck, but build a goblin deck.

Instead of having so many creatures that add counters I think you should have a few more creatures that benefit from a high power. More Trample would be the easiest. Flying, First Strike and Double Strike. Loyal Guardian should be in to add counters however.

Possibly Hateflayer, Mage Slayer, Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin for more warm bodies

I think a way that you can keep your Exalted theme, but still work around an inherent drawback of the strategy is to retool a bit and run creatures with Myriad or "when this creature attacks, create tokens that are tapped and attacking".

Token creatures that are created from Myriad, or that enter tapped and attacking are never declared as attackers, so Exalted will still trigger as intended. This essentially lets you punch one player with the Exalted creature, and still send stuff at your other opponents. Because Myriad is an attack trigger, you also get an extra Myriad token creature copies attacking your other opponents.

There are 14 cards in Mardu that could work here. A few notable ones:

  • Genasi Enforcers

  • Hammers of Moradin - A personal favorite for my Isshin deck. Hammers could be really helpful to open up attacking lanes for your Exalted creature.

  • Battle Angels of Tyr - Not budget, but also not outright busted. It can help create mana acceleration, draw, and gain life, but in my experience playing Battle Angels, it feels more like playing "catch up".

  • Elturel Survivors

Some fun creatures that create tokens on attack:

None of these cards are inherently optimized, except for maybe Battle Angels, but I think they could all add some extra spice to what you're already trying to accomplish.

Michigone on Isshin for a Fight

3 months ago

After not even one playtest, and a few chats, and bowing to the wisdom of others (plainsrunner, Crow-Umbra, NAT0), I decided to cut out Tome of Legends and put back in Professional Face-Breaker. I don't have trouble connecting with multiple players, and it's both ramp and draw. And with Tome, I know that it's an attack trigger, but I have to use my commander to get it to go, and I don't always want to be swinging Isshin in. Also, in what has to be one the greatest light bulb moments/bonehead moves of my life, I realized why people run myriad in Isshin. IT'S AN ATTACK TRIGGER! Duh Michigone, geez. Can't believe I didn't realize that. I was so focused on the tokens not getting the attack triggers that I forgot that myriad itself in an attack trigger. I have only been putting out three tokens this entire time, not 6. Well, Battle Angels of Tyr just went from a good card to a great card in this deck. I mean, getting to do all the triggers from it would be great, no doubt. But ALSO swinging 8 in the air at people? Yes please!

Also, to answer your query Crow-Umbra, I keep finding Cathars' Crusade to be so good with everything when I playtest with groups that don't play so much removal. It just turns my board state into a beast. Especially with something like Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin. Or any token producer really. But it is a lodestone for removal, I will give you that. And if I don't have a way to make tokens, it sometimes just sits on my board and does nothing, which isn't as great. So I don't want to cut it (it's kinda a pet card), but I'm sure something better will come along. At some point. Maybe. ;)

Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin is a great secondary boss. Get that full Waaaagh feel by attaching Veteran's Armaments. The bonus it gives creates as many orcs as you attacked with, even if they all die from blockers. He needs an Ork name though.

Gleeock on Your Cheap Obscure Overperformers?

Last_Laugh Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin, himself is a overperformer, though he is less & less obscure now. He is kind of ridiculous as a general go-wide enabler & can make himself pretty tall pretty quickly with benefits to making him tall. He has been a "must answer" threat in Extus, Oriq Overlord  Flip as well. Kindof feels good when your "must answer" threats are somewhat disposable like that. I also love that he does not need goblin tribal to be awesome, just solid in the 99 for various decks.

Ooh, another I've had amazing success with is Devilish Valet in Isshin (go-wide tokens variety). Just 6 tokens entering makes him 64 power which is enough to one-shot people out of the game... and 10 tokens is 1024 power just to put it in perspective how fast it snowballs from there. I've had him hit for over 2 million thanks mostly to a Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin and 20 tokens entering (it felt good btw).

Utvara Hellkite would give you a dragon army pretty fast. Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin would give you goblins pretty fast.

Dolmen Gate, Iroas, God of Victory or even Bubble Matrix would let you attack with impunity
