If you own 4 Gaea's Cradle, then i guess why not, but they dont seem to fit this deck idea, unless you change it to a fireball so i would swap them in the above list for Dryad Arbor as another creature and another forest to search for with land grant

Or how about last-ditch effort instead of the Bombardment.
Burn at the stake could work with a similar deck, but im not sure how you could ramp to the mana cost. Infernal Plunge with the gaea's cradle?
[C]Simian spirit guide[/C] and [C]elvish spirit guide[/C], so that you can cast [C]glimpse of nature[/C] without using [C]gaea's cradle[/C] and save it to cast a [C]fireball[/C] and be able to kill turn 0

What is this mythical turn 0 you speak of?  Because last I checked, you have to be able to cast creatures, which require a main phase to work.  Flash-Hulk went off on "Turn 0" since it could be done on either player's upkeep before they even drew.  I don't see how this pulls that off.

Well, maybe not turn 0, since apparently i missunderstud what turn 0 ment. but turn 1 kill is possible. and [C]banefire[/C] would be better than fireball. also [C]lotus petal[/C] to increase the odds of  drawing the combo
2x banefire
4x Lotus Petal
4x Simian Spirit Guide
4x Elvish Spirit Guide
4x Glimpse of Nature
4x Gaea's Cradle
4x Crimson Kobolds
4x Crookshank Kobolds
4x Kobolds of Kher Keep
4x Memnite
4x Ornithopter
4x Phyrexian Walker
4x Shield Sphere

50 cards so far how should this deck fill the rest of the slots?
thanks for the hepl so far.
maybe a storm effect? or a big fatty or Coat of Arms and Concordant Crossroads  for the lol
Add gitaxian probe and street wraith for extra draw in case of a fizzle.

The last two spots could be crop rotation to get an untapped cradle? Just a thought.

i agree with supa_tim, 4 [C]gitaxian probe[/C] and 4 [C]street wraith[/C]  will help as well as [C]crop rotation[/C]. as for storm, i don't remember any card that could kill with storm in green or red. just [C]tendrils of agony[/C], and you woul need the luck of 2 lotus petal

I did extensive testing on various Kobold decks a few years back.

community.wizards.com/go/thread/view/758...

The "All or Nothing" was the best one in my opinion.  It won on turn 1 about 80% of the time.  Roughly 90% by turn 2.  You can use the linked post to see a lot of different tech I discovered/used.

Here is a deck from the Legacy Section that does what you're looking for, plus several pages of discussion on other lists.

Hope it helps!!
Pretty old thread, but I have a question regarding the Phyrexian Marauder and Shifting Wall. They can't drop as 0/0 creatures, can they?
www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Article.a...

wow love the deck he built but want to have all 7 0 costed critters, how should the two decks be combined?
[C]beck // call[/C] is a nice addition, as well as [C]retract[/C] you might change a creature spell for [C]summoner's pact[/C] so is faster to bring up your spell cout, it aslo feels like you need [C]elvish spirit guide[/C] to have more mana sorce in case you get [C]glimpse of nature[/C] and no mana to play it. You should use only 2 [C]grapeshot[/C], and [C]land grant[/C] also looks like a very good option.
I'm confused by the use of gaea's cradle.  When is it ever going to need to give you more than a single green mana in your deck?  The only spell it casts from your deck on its own is glimpse, everything else costs 0 or requires 1 other mana.  It's not like you have a singleton banefire in there or anything.  You might as well have it be a taiga or something and fetch it with land grant like dmata suggested.

A decent alt wincon is beastmaster ascension: attack with 7+ guys, and the ascension becomes active before damage.

Retract could probably be switched for scapegoat.  You lose 1 creature, but gain stormcount from all of the kobolds again, too.
totally agree with Chriss, [C]scapegoat[/C] works better, you should also lower the count of [C]grapeshot[/C], since you'll be drawing like crazy 2 or 3 are enough, and in case you go with [C]scapegoat[/C] i also suggest 3. fill those spots with [C]summoner's pact[/C]

I get scapegoat, it's an awesome idea.  But Summoner's Pact?  There are no green creatures in this deck... did you mean Pact of the Titan?

He probably meant Pact of Negation as free protection for the combo.

I did mean [C]summoner's pact[/C] but now i realize you are not running [C]elvish spirit guide[/C], wich i also recommend, so you can get the oppening hand of glimpse plus mana source more frecuently.
You can use the cradles using, [C]banefire[/C] instead of stormcount, wich would and up leaving out grapeshot, retract and scapegoat. and would bring [C]crop rotation[/C].

As for the current list, i would use 4 mox opal, and lower the count of retract+sacpe goat, i don't know if you really need 8 of them since i haven't done any testing at it, but 6 sound ok, if it's working out for you go with it.
