I like Krenko, Mob Boss better, it costs less and can do more long run... but, once I found out everyone was using tokens, I have decided not to include tokens. I know my deck would be better if I had mob boss in it. But 3 direct damage is nice too! That’s why I chose Lightning Crafter .

Update 09/02/19

So this is what I’ve been using and I’m currently 8-2 with it.

Again I don’t play FNM or go anywhere to play. I just play with friends. I would like to go somewhere and play, but I haven’t yet...

Also 8-2 consists of a few doubles matches and a few free for all matches.


Things that may need tweaked.

I was thinking of adding some land cycling cards like Forgotten Cave and Lonely Sandbar for when it gets late game and I need to sift some land out.

Or Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle for that extra damage lol. I’m strongly consisted of this.

The only other thing I may change is take out a Lightning Crafter for Furnace of Rath

But for now my deck looks to be holding up ok.

Spirits on Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

Hi LordKunai,

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is primarily here for cards like, Necropotence and Vilis, Broker of Blood . Also the primary win-con is lots of , Buried Alive + Reanimate , always good to have extra for tutors as well. There are some combos with things like Kormus Bell and Stax or Balefire Dragon , but I don't play those in this build. It's primary intensive so helps if all mana is in addition to it's other colors.

Felidar Guardian works great with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , I found I didn't need the redundancy as it's the same as a Restoration Angel (who has flash and can protect Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker ). I go for my primary win-con, if it misses, usually someone else will combo and win before I can try again. Usually the Restoration Angel isn't the target anyway, so it's another downside to the redundancy, if Restoration Angel is no good, Felidar Guardian probably isn't either, and just distracts from primary win-con. If your stacking, Worldgorger Dragon , Adarkar Valkyrie (+sac outlet), Zealous Conscripts , Village Bell-Ringer , Lightning Crafter (+sac outlet) also have good (and interconnected) synergies. My "Alternative Synergies Excluded" accordion has some discussion and interactions, as well as cross/interconnected interactions. Some work with Splinter Twin too. I find Zealous Conscripts (steal) or Village Bell-Ringer (flash defend) both have more upside (outside of the primary win-con) than the Felidar Guardian so I would probably go there if I found I needed another Restoration Angel or was building around that flicker infrastructure.

SolomonsEfreet, sad to see Iona, Shield of Emeria go, I disagree with the reasoning, but it is what it is. Vilis, Broker of Blood is the obvious replacement as Sir_Flash mentioned.

Probably going to switch it out with one of the following:

Lightning Crafter

Phyrexian Altar

Or Ruination cause it's so good

DrLama on MagicalHacker - List of All 2-Card Infinite Combos

more one-card combos:
Search up Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Lightning Crafter , then any Goblin sac outlet (too many to list), or anything that triggers off of etb or death ( Pashalik Mons / Boggart Shenanigans / Warteye Witch ). With a sac outlet, you get infinite damage from Lightning Crafter copies, and infinite of the sac effect (for example with Skirk Prospector , infinite red mana.

Additionally, Cateran Overlord (and Cateran Slaver / Cateran Enforcer ) can search up Moggcatcher , making them one-card combos too.

Moggcatcher fetching all three pieces on its own is pretty slow, requiring a full turn after you play it to use it, then still requiring an additional untap and activation. One way to use it is, EOT, fetch Kiki, copy Moggcatcher, fetch Sling-Gang Lieutenant with the copy, untap Kiki, Moggcatcher, and copy. Get a card with champion (adorementioned Lightning Crafter, or Boggart Mob / Changeling Berserker / Changeling Hero / Changeling Titan using the Moggcatcher or the copy of Moggcatcher. Win
Another way is EOT get Sensation Gorger , then in response to upkeep trigger, get Goblin Recruiter . This has bonus of discarding everyone's hand. Then you draw any five gobs you want. In this case, you can go off with Kiki + Goatnapper + Shields/Wings/ Blades of Velis Vel for meme value (turn Kiki into a goat)

Cateran Overlord can achieve same speed because it is a sac outlet itself. EOT get Moggcatcher, untap, Moggcatcher gets Kiki, Kiki copies Moggcatcher, Moggcatcher copy gets Lightning Crafter.
In response to Champion trigger, Cateran Overlord gets Changeling Berserker , Berserker champions Kiki, then let Lightning Crafter champion trigger resolve, tucking Berserker (or just sac it), which brings Kiki back untapped. Now you have Kiki untapped, Crafter, and a sac outlet, which is enough to win.

Cateran Slaver and Cateran Enforcer need three activations.

SwiftDeath on Krenko - Goblin Tribal EDH

You might like Lightning Crafter If you have a sac outlet then it is an damage combo with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker . You champion a goblin that isnt Kiki-Jiki and then tap kiki to make a token copy of Lightning crafter using the token to champion kiki instead. The token has haste so you can use it to deal 3 damage. Then sac the token to return kiki back to the battlefield. and repeat process. I use it in my Krenko deck and it has won me most of my games as it is more consistent than the untap make more goblins type cards. Another one that is more expensive but I use it cause I got lucky and got it when it was cheap is Goblin Wizard can cheat your goblins into play and give protection from white for removal like swords or path.

Anti-sticky_keys, I like both those options. Only reason I don't run Outnumber is I prefer being able to hit creatures or players, not just creatures, Goblin War Strike is sort of the better version of it in this deck. Ixthinon, I don't like Chancellor of the Forge since I often found it dead in my hand. Herald's Horn is an option I'm debating on trying to find space for. Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker was in an earlier build of this deck along with Lightning Crafter ,but I decided against them, since I rarely got it off (especially since my group hates on Kiki-Jiki and prevents it from ever going off. DeltaDisease,no, I do not know that combo, please do tell.

SamsWrath on My LGS's #1 hated deck

If you really want to take this deck to the next level then you need all of the fast mana and tutors: Mana Crypt , Mana Vault , Grim Monolith , Mox Diamond , Mox Opal , Chrome Mox , Mox Amber , Talisman of Indulgence , Lotus Petal , Dark Ritual , Cabal Ritual , Pyretic Ritual , Desperate Ritual , Rite of Flame , Culling the Weak , Infernal Plunge , Lake of the Dead , Bubbling Muck , Rain of Filth , Grim Tutor , Imperial Seal , Vampiric Tutor and Diabolic Intent .

Since you're already running Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker you might as well add in Zealous Conscripts , Lightning Crafter and Combat Celebrant because they all go infinite with Kiki.

Rakdos is also the color combination you need for Worldgorger Dragon + Dance of the Dead , Animate Dead or Necromancy infinite combo. Use Buried Alive or Entomb to pitch one of the Kiki combos or to pitch the dragon and then use one of the enchantments to start the combo. Be sure with Dragon combo to have another creature in the GY or you draw the game with an uninterruptible infinite combo. Other cards that help these combos are Victimize and Final Parting .
