Maskwood Nexus + Bishop of Wings + Sling-Gang Lieutenant

Am looking for a better card to replace Sling-Gang with.

Ashnod's Altar + Eldrazi Displacer + Sling-Gang Lieutenant

Sacrificing two tokens gets you four colorless mana. Blinking the original creature costs three mana. Repeat until you have infinite colorless, then spend that to blink the creature to produce infinite tokens. Then sacrifice infinite tokens to the creature’s ability to win the game.

Nsuper the common Modern combos that I can think of right now are:

  • Devoted Druid combo, using Devoted Druid, Vizier of Remedies, and then usually Walking Ballista.

  • Storm decks, using Grapeshot, and then a billion spells that gain mana, draw cards, and recast stuff from the grave.

  • Goblins have a combo in Conspicuous Snoop and Boggart Harbinger, by then fiddling with the top of their deck to put Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Sling-Gang Lieutenant on top.

  • more i'm forgetting

  • Outside of combo, I would think most burn, aggro, and mill decks can close out and win the game regularly between turns 2-5 (mill less so if it's doing it with control-elements). When I say "aggro" I'm thinking Hardened Scales, Infect, Prowess, Dredge, "Hammer Time".

  • Tron often also can force the opponent to scoop on turn 3 or 4 if they can get Tron going on T3 and drop some BS like Karn.

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!

Destroyerbirb on Grenzo Doomsday Snoop - Budget CEDH

I'm still editing the deck, but Queen_Lulu, the combos work like this.

Combo 1) Use Doomsday or Goblin Recruiter to stack these five cards in this order. (There are some things you can change around.)

Dark-Dweller Oracle, Conspicuous Snoop, Torch Courier (Have to put into the deck), Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Sling-Gang Lieutenant/Mogg Fanatic. (If it's Doomsday you can put the top two cards on the bottom and activate Grenzo, Dungeon Warden and you would get a similar result.)

Find a way to draw a card, then play Dark-Dweller Oracle. Activate it once (for now), and play Conspicuous Snoop. Using the Conspicuous Snoop, play Torch Courier, and sacrifice it targeting Conspicuous Snoop. Now Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker is on the top of your library. Conspicuous Snoop has Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker's ability, and has haste thanks to the Torch Courier. Activate the Conspicuous Snoop/Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker to make a copy of itself. (It's a non-legendary permanent.) The copy will be untapped, and you can make infinite tokens. Finally, use Dark-Dweller Oracle one last time to get rid of Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. With Sling-Gang Lieutenant/Mogg Fanatic on the top of the library, you can use any Conspicuous Snoop to gun down your opponents.

Combo 2) Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Zealous Conscripts. Kiki copies and the Conscripts untaps Kiki.

Combo 3) Play the Snoop and Boggart Harbinger. The Harbinger will put Kiki on top, combo off, then use the last untapped Snoop to copy the Harbinger and put the Lieutenant/Fanatic on the top to win.

A good thing about the last combo it that there is a failsafe in case you somehow get Kiki onto the battlefield. If you have Tel-Jilad Stylus, plus the Snoop and the Harbinger, use Kiki to copy the Harbinger, but with that ability on the stack, use the Stylus to put Kiki on the bottom of your library, and then the Harbinger will tutor Kiki to the top.

Other combo payoffs are Goblin Bombardment, Altar of the Brood, Impact Tremors, Vindictive Vampire and Zulaport Cutthroat.

StopShot on Help me foolproof this infinite …

@SynergyBuild, Myr Battlesphere is just too slow as you can't attack right away unless you add another piece to the combo and the initial combo can't draw for those extra pieces either.

Instead of Myr Battlesphere I think I'd rather run Murderous Redcap or Sling-Gang Lieutenant or Scampering Scorcher as I can take out all my opponents on the spot with any of them and they're much cheaper to cast too.

The reason I wanted to look hard into this avenue when easier options exist is simply because the Pyromancer option is cheaper CMC-wise to pull off and Seasoned Pyromancer by itself provides more value than any of those CMC creatures as well.

Massacar on What is your favorite combo …

Some fun combos that can be a little janky:

Damage and life-gain combo

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Thornbite Staff + Sling-Gang Lieutenant. Tap Kiki with thornbite equipped to make copies of Lieutenant, sacrifice the tokens to untap with Thornbite, repeat for a damage and life-gain combo.

The same basic combo can be done in four parts using Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Thornbite Staff + token producer + sac outlet such as Skirk Prospector or Goblin Bombardment

Infinite reanimation (during upkeep)= Hell's Caretaker + Thornbite Staff + Genesis Chamber/Desecrated Tomb (or a reanimation target that ETBs with fodder such as Myr Battlesphere) + Initial Sac Fodder
