Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer Discussion

CannedCanOpener on If She ETBs, She's a Thop

Baclash Ideally the token generation system would be to repeatedly bounce/blink Breya as often as possible, though that's definitely not the only way - the deck is based on Thopters, but they definitely aren't the only thing you need to produce. Treasures and clues also build up your artifact count and can net you wins with Hellkite Tyrant and Mechanized Production. Card draw is a bit of an iffy thing, in my experience with this deck. I recently put in Thopter Spy Network to give a bit more, plus Padeem, Consul of Innovation and Trading Post can both draw some cards. Usually, however, it isn't too bad since you can hold on to your mana should you need to activate Breya in a pinch; in an ideal game, you can get most of your important pieces out onto the board already and save your hand for as-needed situations. In regards to counter magic, I agree that it doesn't have a ton of counterspells. I have Ertai, the Corrupted in the decklist to try and alleviate that, but I don't get to play super often and have yet to play him in a real game to see how effective he is and I'll make adjustments accordingly. It's a bit vulnerable to wipes, though I have a few workarounds: Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer can protect a few key pieces from removal, and Open the Vaults is the best (but not only) option for graveyard recursion if you can't cheat/fetch out your DS Forge. And in regards to mana/ramp, I also agree that the deck is very light on that, but with how many fetches and multicolored lands I run it has yet to fully mana screw me in a real game; once you get one of each color active, you can cast Breya, and with how many multicolored lands it has odds are you'll have two of any colors you need (mainly blue or white). I only get to playtest this each Friday afternoon, so it's still very much in the "test it and see what cards underperform and should be cut for more mana" stage, but I really enjoy playing this deck.

I'd definitely drop Implements of Sacrifice and Treasure Keeper, and recommend dropping Cathodion, Order of Whiteclay, and Feldon too. Seems like it could use more sac outlets like Arcbound Ravager, Goblin Bombardment, Culling Dais, Dark-Dweller Oracle, Fanatical Devotion, Jinxed Idol, Krark-Clan Shaman, and Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer. I'd also think about any of the creatures that make Treasure when they enter or die, Brass's Bounty, Smothering Tithe, Hangarback Walker, Hoarding Dragon, Scrapyard Recombiner, Servo Schematic, Bloodfire Infusion

Hey NV_1980! THanks the both of u for the reply on my deck! the Alhammarret's Archive is there for the daretti +2 effect and some more card draw effects in the deck. Having said that, the first part of the card does nothing indeed. I Do think i have a mystic forge in my collection so i will definitly give it a try in my next games!

The Treasure Nabber sounds like an awesome card! Havent heard of it before but i will make sure i get my hands on 1! Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer has made very little to zero impact on my games so i was thinking of replacing him anyways! I like this suggestion alot!

I will have a look at the decks u 2 made, but i already noticed its... ALOT of decks!

We like your deck; well done! We're sincerely doubting the value of having Alhammarret's Archive in here though. Sure, it interacts with some of your artifacts and sorceries, but we think there are more valuable options. Mystic Forge for instance, will give this deck much more of an edge. Its not dependent on any other cards and it will increase your hand-size (by as many colorless cards as you want/can cast off the top of your library per turn).

Also, since this deck thrives on the sacrificing of artifacts, it would do very well with the addition of Treasure Nabber. Let's face it, most of your opposition will be using artifact mana-rocks during a game. Nabber will allow you to steal them when they are used, and then you sacrifice them to whatever gain you see fit, thereby denying your opposition the use of these artifacts again before you have to return them. We would recommend exchanging Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer for this card. If you don't feel like mainboarding Nabber, we hope you will at least consider to sideboard it since it combines so well with your overall strat.

Keep up the nice brews! And if you would be so kind to have a look at one or two of our decks and provide your feedback, that would be greatly appreciated.

With kind regards,

Mrs. and Mr. NV_1980

I've been honing a marchesa deck for about a year, and the best cards I can suggest are the graft creatures you can run. Vigean Graftmage , Cytoplast Manipulator , and Novijen Sages are the best 3 (They keep counters on important things, and protect your commander). In the modular build specifically, some fantastic cards to consider are Treasure Keeper , Marionette Master , and Throne of Geth . I'd also highly suggest running some low-cost sac outlets to make sure nothing goes to waste Carrion Feeder , Viscera Seer , Goblin Bombardment , and Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer are the best ones lowest on the curve.

Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer , as another sac outlet that Gerrard can return?

Driemer84: Meteor Golem can definitely find its way in here; I just didn’t have the room for him. I did test him out at one point. Spine of Ish Sah is superior than him just because it goes back to your hand if it goes to the graveyard. Currently, this is what I’m testing:



Daedalus19876: I’m gonna do my best to keep that spot too! Lol.
