Reckless One Discussion

DemonDragonJ A couple of thoughts here.

First, I personally would be surprised if any variant of Exquisite Blood gets printed. There are a lot of "whenever you gain life, opponent loses life" cards, and any new EB would instantly create an infinite loop with every one of them. When Exquisite Blood was printed, it pretty much replaced Blood Tribute , which was the only option for Sanguine Bond loops for three years. That was it for a long time. Since then, SB got a lot of imitators for whatever arbitrary reason, but I think that WotC consciously chose one effect to reprint, to prevent Eternal formats (Modern and EDH, mostly) from becoming a mass of "gain life, lose life" loops.

For mana value, it's shorter and just as easy to understand than CMC (written out, of course), but there's one case that I constantly got hung up on, and there's no way I was the only one: Spells cost less.

A. "With Aluren and Goblin Warchief out, I play Reckless One for free."

B. "You can't do that, Reckless One 's converted mana cost is too high."

A. "But Goblin Warchief makes it cheaper!"

B. "That's not what converted mana cost means. CMC is the total of everything in the cost in the upper corner."

A. "So 'costs less' doesn't actually mean 'costs less?'"

B. "No, it changes what you pay, not what it costs. Think of it like a coupon -long explanation that A forgets five minutes after the game-"

By uncoupling the word "cost" from two meaning, that side case is cleared up.

Another Shadowborn Apostle print would be nice.

Hey, thanks for taking a look! Krenko is a very a fun and easy commander, highly recommend, even budget Krenko decks can be pretty strong. For cards that change value a lot, Coat of Arms like you said, or creatures like Reckless One, I use two d10's on the card in question (3 if I go into the hundreds, rare but happens), but you do have to take a moment here and there to do the math, which can definitely be a pain if you have multiple cards like that on the field at the same time. Honestly, that's probably the hardest part of piloting this deck, the rest is pretty straight forward.

It seems your deck is missing some card draw so it doesn't run out of steam too fast. Now mono-red is a tough nut to crack regarding card draw - atleast I don't have much experience with it. But I would definetly cut Wily Goblin. You should look into cards like Magus of the Wheel and Skullclamp - with all your small creatures, a card like Mind's Eye might fit in.

These two goblins might interest you Reckless One and Skirk Fire Marshal.

Depending on your playgroup, you should look into some boardwipes/Removal like Mizzium Mortars.

I also see you have a lot of small pingers that deal small damage - maybe look into some equipment that gives deathtouch.

This is pretty much the deck I have. Super cheap and easy to play. By turn 3 you can get krenko out and if no one keeps you pinned down you pretty much just win. I play my Krenko deck every once in a while because I know it works and people can get salty. I might add Skullclamp for draw, Reckless One for a big F-all card, Legion Warboss for a nice mentor card that also creates more goblins. This are my suggestions to put in your maybe board. Take a look at mine if you want to see another version of krenko EDH. I love that you put thornbite staff in, I bought one but don't have the heart to put it in my deck.

I would consider dropping Temple of the False God since it's a dead land if it's out too early and most of your deck really just wants red mana anyway. In the open slot consider adding Bloodmark Mentor . I know he's ~$1.30, but he gives all your goblins first strike and is 2cmc.

Another budget add would be Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin . Perhaps dropping Goblin Instigator or Reckless One to make room.

I love goblins myself, so hopefully this turns out for you.

I'll try to find some combos that work w/ Artifice, though I dunno if Coldsteel Heart is any better than Fire Diamond , but What About Prism Ring ? A Medallion can't possibly beat this... Any thoughts? I just wonder what can help w/ such combos. For now, (& I regret to DO this yet again...) I'd like some suggestions for cuts for this deck; AND some adds in Goblin Tribal that have Flying; this deck has no option against Flying/Horsemanship Creatures, & I'd actually like some of this, please.

That said, I'm going to have to predict these will be cut:

Patron of the Akki : Not even a Gob, is powerful, but can't even fly. a WASTE .

Goblin Sharpshooter : Death to something is required for something that only does 1 Damage; even doubling damage is MINISCULE in this case. That, & it DOESN'T target Walkers, which can be a separate target from the Player now; damn new rulings... & this is also concrete proof we need more firearms in MTG; & Plainswalk Back; just look at the Plains Art of our age & dare to say: "It should never return.". Even Sogen translates to Grassland, & Knights, Soldiers, Aven, Angels, even Spirits have the upper hand in such an area here over any Conventional Non- Creature. Even if it's a Plains at it's most basic.

Reckless One : I suppose this is a Meta-Call? For me, this Avatar is just a dumber(er) Fatty than even an Hamletback Goliath . But what the crap should I know? This deck seems to want to Put into Play LOTS of Gobs...

Zo-Zu the Punisher : This deck heavily relies on Gobs, & Mana; but if the latter in the form of Lands punishes you just for playing them (Especially when you have Crucible of Worlds .), Something is truly off for this kind of Gob that's better off Hatebearing you.

Potential Changes?:

Fire Diamond >>> Coldsteel Heart : Both are Cast, Both are Rocks that ETB tapped, but Coldsteel Heart at least gives you a choice of what mana it can use; & is a Snow Permanent to add to the damage. Replace your Damn Diamonds w/ this Relic; Frozen in Time.

Ruby Medallion >>> Prism Ring : Why screw w/ a Medallion that does too little for , when you got the ULTIMATE MOOD RING; & a Genuine one at that, at , & while it won't give you any discount, prepare to gain so much life, it's criminal. Now, uh... What's the whole set of Colors for moods? I, mean, there's like 66, 67 of them, God Forbid? That's one hell of a Rainbow of a Prism. Sadly I couldn't find any better anyway... Your thoughts on this would be good...

&... That's all I got... Any ideas for cuts (Or adds; I still can't find any anti-flyers...) would be great. I wonder if there is a cheap artifact that allows your spells to be less; & no, The Immortal Sun doesn't count...

Thanks for the help thus far... :)

Oh, & about the Plains in Question so we can get Plainswalk back:

Plains (This is a HUGE area in Ravnica. No Grass Anywhere.)

Plains (What kind of Non- Creature has the upper hand in something BESIDES mere SoGen?!)

Plains (Oketra says Hello, untrue lives.)

I hope this helps. I'll talk later. Good luck for cuts and/or adds. :)
