This thread is for discussion of this week's ReConstructed, which goes live Tuesday morning on magicthegathering.com.
There has to be room in that deck for a Hellion Crucible or two, right? Every other land taps for red. And if Goblin Fireslinger is attacking rather than pinging, would it be a wise choice to include Goblin Gaveleer instead as that last one drop? With so many lords, trample seems relevant, even if you're not equiping it. I love how the three months with two core sets in standard are always the best times to play goblins.
Yeah I sent him a deck a few weeks ago similar to what we ended up with, except it had gaveleer and equipments - I posted it here community.wizards.com/go/thread/view/758...
I know it's not new, but the Blinking Lotus deck does have an impressive suite of X spells.
I would really like to know why the Galvanic Blast s are on the original list. That whole deck has only 4 artifacts. It is no different than Shock about 99% of the time in the deck so why not just use shocks? There also could have been another couple of Pillar of Flame s if you don't want shocks.
Other than that very minor confusion the deck seems neat. Sadly most of it goes away in ~3 months and the nature of the original Ravnica block wasn't conducive to a mono red goblin deck so I don't expect this one to be as they have mentioned using the guilds for RtR block.
You mean like the 4 Sphere of the Suns in the deck Brian Kibler used to win Pro Tour Dark Ascension after burning out Jon Finkel? (I'm being unfair, Kibler also had Inkmoth Nexus to help.) Even if it's only better 1% of the time, why wouldn't you want that 1%? If you're trying to win 19 rounds of a Pro Tour, you need every bit you can get. And even if you're just playing at your kitchen table it can make for a really dramatic ending.
So put Shock aside. Pillar of Flames is probably a better option what with Undying and other graveyard tricks around. You could make a case for why it's preferable to G. Blast. But don't take any advantage for granted and just throw it away because it's "unlikely".
I would personally cut a Krenko, a Automaton and a land for 3 main incinerates.
I like having some more burn in a red deck, and i have never been really imressed by the Automaton, 3 legendary creatures at the top end of your curve seems plenty to me, and with a low curve 22 lands are enough i guess.
Anyway: trow in your thoughts on this.
Maybe not incinerate but pillar of flames?
