Vimozahr I just removed Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Lightning Crafter from the deck. I played quite a lot of games the last recent weeks. I have never won a game with the combo. It's just way to mana intense Zealous Conscripts is way to costly too. The main plan is get krenko and go infinite. That's the same thing with Basilisk Collar it just doesn't fit in. You need Goblin Sharpshooter to make it work, that's far to niche. Sure it's a boardwhipe but at what cost. We must focus on our mainplan for maximizing consistancy.

Palladium Myr and Crypt Ghast ramp you. So does Workhorse.

If you play your deck in a way where you always use Grenzo at 3 power, you can use card like Chainer, Nightmare Adept and Meteor Golem. Also, there's Lightning Crafter which is apparently really good at infinite combos, but he's also just good in general.

Epitaph Golem is great. You can just go infinite if you have Ashnod's Altar out and something like Beetleback Chief or Dockside Extortionist. Throw in a Heartstone and you can go infinite death and ETB triggers on any goblin you've got.

Hey, noob here. Have you considered using a line with Lightning Crafter?

Sideboarded Massive Raid , Goblin War Strike , and Quest for the Goblin Lord .

Added Moggcatcher , Lightning Crafter , and Mana Geyser to help us do the things we do. Since we are hungry for mana and sacs for our outlets, geyser makes sense. Added the other combo piece and the tutor that helps us get those pieces.

Also considering removing other last-ditch efforts such as Last-Ditch Effort , and the (conditional) bomb/removal/wipe/wombo spell Mogg Infestation . Although this card is versatile in this deck, I still question it every time I weigh edits.

Both Last-Ditch Effort and Mogg Infestation require conditions to be effective, but also trigger all the triggers that this deck is built around. The aforementioned sideboarded cards just did the face damage. Also, because we are not looking to go wide, but instead churn goblins for ETB and ETG effects.

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.

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.

Phyrexian Altar

Or Ruination cause it's so good
