Quote from NideovinjaThey must just have it listed incorrectly, Gatherer lists it as a common...
Quote from ekan78Actually the deck in OP has 101 cards.....
Quote from GreeeekI have a somewhat similar build to yours a few notable things I have that you may or may not have had in at a time.
Thousand Year Elixir Burn at the Stake Puppet Strings Sword of the Paruns Goblin War Strike
My deck runs a couple less goblins who are just cheap costing in order to pack in more Krenko activations. I figure I would rather pay the few mana to untap krenko to make more than likely > 1 goblin then have a slot for a low drop goblin. Last night I won with around 30 goblins out from a Chancellor drop into a Goblin Piledriver swing on 1 player, 28 dmg from hasted gobbos + Goblin Warstrike at #2, and Roar of the crowd on player 3.
The deck wins in so many different fashions it is one of the funner decks to play. Cavern of souls has really been huge for counter protection.
Quote from GeneralBarcaAm I missing something, or is Wizard's the only one who's in love with that art? No one that I play with likes it at all.
Quote from Bread ConnoisseurWhat, the art? The art is absolutely incredible.
Quote from ScorpioRageOne thing you might want to consider is adding a change log to the OP. Because I'm not sure when you added in Chancellor and Mogg Alarm, and not sure what you cut either. Helps people who have been following the deck, as well as keeping a log yourself of what you've done with the deck.
Quote from SamuraiMunkymy thoughts on goblin rally is this:
it's a siege-gang commander that cannot fling goblins.
Quote from SamuraiMunky
If you want to have a second weaker version of siege-gang commander I would suggest for one more mana goblin marshall. Most lists, i think, do not run the marshall (mine does but i also use moggcatcher to get him out).
Quote from ScorpioRageSo I finally got everything for the deck sleeved and ready to go. Because of the fact that I had an Ib and Kiki sitting in with the rest of my cards, they ended up included in the deck, figure I'll test them out in paper where the meta is a bit different than trying to be competitive online.
But, as I was looking through some of my cards I came across something that I'm wondering why it didn't dawn on me sooner. Thousand-Year Elixir. I have never been really happy with Umbral Mantle in the deck, but I kept it in because there wasn't anything that was really as good at doing what Mantle did. But I think the Elixir is much better. There is the obvious thing, which is you can't activate Krenko 3 times in one turn with it, but is more than 2 ever really needed? Plus, and this is the big thing, Elixir gives Krenko haste, which one more thing which allows for haste, is extremely nice, and it also gives Krenko the 2 activations per turn.
If you havn't tried Elixir, I would. If you have and didn't like it, I'd even give it a second chance.
Quote from GregthegreatI'm currently working on my own some what budgeted version of this list but this thread has been incredibly helpful, even if I haven't been through most of the posts lol.
My question though, is Hermit Druid worth running if you have a higher basic land count? At the moment I'm running 32 basics (out of 40 lands). Hopefully, once I finish trading for my land base, I can drop that down to 25 basics. Now my list is a bit heavier on mana ramp compared to the OPs, but I'm also shorter on filter lands as well. Is Hermit Druid still going to be worth running in this situation? I think milling off 5 or so cards a turn and netting a land isn't to shabby for 1 mana, but I'm not to sure from what I have read in this thread.
Quote from CentarionIf I was going to play a creature that was a dead card without Jarad and only useful as sac fodder with him I would play Phyrexian Devourer. And Devourer has been discussed to death and we decided that it is just not good enough.
A 12 point burn to everyone at the table, reliant on having Jarad in play is just not all that great compared to the other cards we have. In general I think Exsanguinate would just be better.
Quote from shadowstalker98Not sure if you saw this but, this is another Jarad deck made by a pro (I presume the writer of this article's a pro). Not sure if you've seen it tho
Quote from Sioux
I liked the Mob Rule idea so I went with it since all of these Goblins make Goblins. I hijacked the Scourge logo and after some slow tool work in Photoshop it yielded some nifty results. The longest part was the cutting of the Goblins from their card art work.
Quote from The_CoolerShizo, Death's Storehouse could also be a consideration. It cuts down on one more basic for Hermit Druid and, if needed, could let you KO someone with Jarad if you find yourself needing to attack.
Quote from The_CoolerNice primer. I'm thinking about building a Jarad deck and I'll use this for pointers, but I'll definitely be adding a couple new pet cards: Jarad's Orders and Death's Presence. Death's Presence seems super fun with multiple Jarad activations or something like Altar of Dementia.
Quote from shadowstalker98Just putting it out there, have any of you noticed the awesome combo between Avenger of Zendikar and Scapeshift? It seems to be almost another win-con in itself.
E.g. Play Avenger of Zendikar when you have 9 lands out (for example).
Playing Scapeshift the following turn allows you to have 9/10 attackers!!
If you can sac and return Avenger of Zendikar to the field in the same turn that you play him, that's 18 attackers!! Admittedly, it is a two turn combo but, hey, when you pull it off, it's cool!
It's even better when you have a higher number of lands
Quote from shneakyshneakyI love the mechanic of landfall so much that I almost wanted to put Ob Nixilis in, what with Scapeshift, Azusa, and Oracle in the deck. He also bolts people while becoming fat for Jarad. He seems pretty fun, but I think he otherwise takes too long for things to happen.
Edit: But, but, what if you chained a couple of Scapeshifts together with decent mana and Regrowths? That would put up some pretty nice damage there. I just hope they don't path him in the process.
