Valakut Exploration

Valakut Exploration


Landfall — Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, exile the top card of your library. You may play that card as long as it remains exiled.

At the beginning of your end step, if there are cards exiled with Valakut Exploration, put them into their owner's graveyard, then Valakut Exploration deals that much damage to each opponent.

Mini update:

In: Bolt Bend and Deflecting Swat for some added protection and trickery, Mana Geyser for more ritual and combo potential.

Out: Fork and Reverberate were not working how I wanted them too. Strionic Resonator was win-more.

Upcoming considerations, those marked with * are the ones that will definitely be going in and staying:

Looking for cut suggestions.

That deck name earned the upvote. For the deck: Nice. How about Moraug, Fury of Akoum? Also, Valakut Exploration seems REALLY good in here.

Hello, Nice list! As someone has pointed out, have you tried running Coveted Jewel? It is 3 mana=draw 3. You may protect it with tokens, destroy it or even funnier: steal it back with Treasure Nabber (which you can tutor with Goblin Matron or Goblin Recruiter). You may also be lucky to have a Panharmonicon on the field to draw 6. Also, what do you think about Idol of Oblivion, Jeska's Will and Valakut Exploration?

Hey, thanks for your decklist. I am going to buy this deck! I was thinking about a few new cards, could you tell me what you think about them please?

DRAW Jeska's Will // Risk Factor // Valakut Exploration // Valakut Awakening  Flip

PROTECTION Dragon's Claw // Dragonmaster Outcast

Here are some cards you might consider that seem interesting:

Pyrostatic Pillar as a second Flame Zealot

Loyal Unicorn, The Wanderer as redundancy for Tajic's damage prevention.

Hour of Devastation, Blasphemous Act as one-sided wipes.

Stormwild Capridor, Truefire Captain, Boros Reckoner, Brash Taunter to play of the idea of damaging your own creatures.

Torbran, Thane of Red Fell for more damage Outputs.

Outpost Siege, maybe Valakut Exploration, Syr Carah, the Bold as card draw.

Actually, Idk if this is something you can help me with, but im looking into a pioneer deck built around Aggressive Mining with chaining Animist's Awakening do draw through your deck until you hit a Jace, Wielder of Mysteries or a Thassa's Oracle and win. I could also use Valakut Exploration as a secondary wincon. Support cards could look like Nissa, Steward of Elements to hit what I want with my draws and card like growth spiral to ramp. Maybe even Cultivate and Roiling Regrowth. What do you think? I know no idea is too janky but this might be it.

Liquidbeaver on Ib Halfheart, Goblin Sac-tician [PRIMER]

paytongamer: In the last several revisions of the deck since I've added Goblin War Drums the Menace hasn't really been impactful because I am winning through something else that uses the Goblins as fuel. Along the same lines I barely get to use Goblin King's evasion, but he has a higher impact potential. It's rare that the damage being dealt by an unblocked Goblin is actually killing someone, it's more likely the Impact Tremors, Raid Bombardment, or Repercussion is doing it.

This is even more the case now with the recent additions of Skirk Fire Marshal, Valakut Exploration, and Massive Raid. I think if the deck focused more on Krenko, big mana with Goblin Warrens, and prioritized combat step damage, then Goblin War Drums becomes much more impactful. That has definitely been this deck at multiple times since I first built it, which just goes to show how flexible Ib is that you can tailor the deck to focus on so many different styles of play.

DBCooper: Shenanigans is good, especially because it can be tutored like any Goblin creature can, and can be freecast off of everything except Muxus, but I think the larger the table gets the less effective Shenanigans is. The same deck I was describing to paytongamer would do well with Shenanigans, a deck that just makes an obscene amount of tokens so it doesn't really matter than you are only hitting one player at a time because you have 250 Goblins to feed into it.
