Goblins, one of my personal favorite decks. It briefly sank below mono red aggro in terms of power but is now up again with the recent shift in the meta towards Sultai and control decks.

For those of you that followed the Zendikar Rising Championship, you might have seen Autumn Burchett pulling off an excellent 5-2 finish with their personal build. While I always built the deck differently, Burchett incorporated cards like Herald’s Horn to make the deck even more consistent.

We’ll be covering Autumn Burchett’s deck today. At the end of this guide, I’ll go through some cards I personally like in the deck, mainly as BO1 recommendations. Let’s do this!

Krenko, Mob Boss

The Deck

The Strategy

Goblins have one strategy: swarm and keep swarming. We have two main goblins in the deck that can help us achieve that. On the one hand we’ve got Krenko, Mob Boss and then there’s Muxus, Goblin Grandee, the star of the show.

Krenko helps us create goblin tokens equal to the number of goblins on the field. This combos nicely with Goblin Warchief and Goblin Chieftain, which give it haste upon entry. Muxus is like a goblin tribal Collected Company on steroids, letting us put any goblin from the top six onto the battlefield.

With this deck’s build, it’s possible to get Muxus on the battlefield as soon as turn 3. With a bit of luck, you might even pull a Goblin Chieftain alongside Krenko, Mob Boss. This means you can go wide with ease and possibly one-shot your opponent the turn they all enter the battlefield.

I’ve had issues in the past where Muxus, Goblin Grandee comes down and two, or even fewer, weaker goblins. So keep in mind whiffing is part of the deck. This luck factor is what balances the deck in the Historic meta. Having cards in here like Herald’s Horn also means that the chance of hitting a goblin is slightly reduced, which can sometimes mess you up, but I’ll get into that more at the end.

The 1-Drop

As our designated 1-drop, we have Skirk Prospector. This is a sort of ramp in our deck to get to Muxus faster. Skirk Prospector helps us sacrifice a goblin to generate one red mana.

Putting one on the field early on and playing a goblin like Wily Goblin on turn 2 means you can play Muxus, Goblin Grandee the next turn. This is the fastest way to get Muxus out in this deck.

Other Goblin decks also run cards like Goblin Instigator to have another goblin to sacrifice to curve into Muxus. Unfortunately, with the removal in the format, that strategy is less effective now.

The 2-Drops

  • Wily Goblin
  • Mind Stone

Let’s start with Wily Goblin since we already covered him briefly a few times. Wily Goblin generates a Treasure token when entering the battlefield. Treasure can be sacrificed to generate one mana of any color. In this particular deck, this is yet another source of ramping into your better goblins. As I mentioned before, this means this card is worth two mana in combination with Skirk Prospector since you can sacrifice both the Treasure and the goblin.

Next, we have Conspicuous Snoop. An excellent card that lets you look at the top card of your deck and allows you to cast it if it’s a goblin. On top of that, it can use the activated abilities of any the goblin if it has one. This means that if you happen to have Krenko, Mob Boss on top, you can tap the Snoop to generate goblin tokens on Krenko’s behalf.

This card’s main function in the deck is to consistently draw into land at the start of your turn. One of this deck’s downfalls is not hitting your fifth or sixth land drop to cast Muxus, Goblin Grandee because you draw into too many goblins in a row. Thanks to the Snoop, we can keep casting goblins off the top to make finding lands a lot more consistent.

Mind Stone was an odd inclusion, in my opinion, but it makes a lot of sense. It’s a mana rock that is yet another way to work towards Muxus. Since it’s colorless, it can’t be removed by Ugin, the Spirit Dragon. Getting a second or third Muxus out after a board wipe is therefore entirely possible.

The 3-Drops

Next, we get into our 3-drop slots. An essential card for consistency in this slot is Goblin Matron. This card lets you fetch any goblin from the deck and add it to your hand. You can generally consider these as extra means to fetch Muxus, Goblin Grandee. Especially in this format where Thoughtseize is heavily played, having “eight” copies of Muxus really helps.

We have Goblin Warchief and Goblin Chieftain in here to give other goblins haste. This is especially handy if Muxus comes down and fetches one of these from the deck, allowing the Grandee and other goblins to attack right away.

This is one of the requirements with this deck. Both cards have an extra effect. While the Warchief reduces the cost of all goblins by one generic mana, the Chieftain gives all goblins +1/+1. This latter effect becomes very strong with the 1/1 tokens Krenko, Mob Boss pushes out.

Herald’s Horn is our final piece of “ramp.” Similar to Goblin Warchief, this card helps to reduce the cost of goblins by one generic mana. The Horn also has a vital function to make sure you hit your lands in time, similar to Conspicuous Snoop. At the beginning of your turn, you look at the top of the deck and put that card into your hand if it’s a goblin.

The 4-Drop

We have one 4-drop in the mainboard: Krenko, Mob Boss. I’ve mentioned this card a lot already. You tap it to generate 1/1 goblin tokens equal to the number of goblins you control. Great in combination with any of the 3-drop goblins that give haste.

The Amazing 6-Drop

And here’s the king of the deck, Muxus, Goblin Grandee, with his ridiculously overpowered effect. This card is currently even featured in Legacy decks for a good reason. It lets you look at the top six of your deck when it comes down, and then you put every goblin in there onto the battlefield.

Sometimes you get some ridiculous turns. For example, one memorable turn was finding five goblins on top. Two Goblin Chieftains, Krenko, Mob Boss, Skirk Prospector, and Wily Goblin. All of these allowed me to tap Krenko immediately, generating six 1/1 tokens, which, thanks to the Chieftain, were now 3/3 tokens. I then sacrificed two tokens and Krenko, Mob Boss to play another Krenko from my hand, which I tapped again to create another nine 3/3s.

This is a fortunate example, but it happens more often than you’d think! Even with a single Krenko and Chieftain, you can pull off some amazing sequences once Muxus enters the battlefield. Absolutely glorious.

The Lands

Nothing much is going on in the land slots. We have Shatterskull Smashing that gives us a source of removal if we’re flooding but can double as a land in need. Castle Embereth lets us boost our board by giving everything +1/+0, which is impressive on a big board.

One really cool piece of technology is Phyrexian Tower. This card lets us sacrifice a goblin to generate two colorless mana. Another great way to hit our Muxus early.

Mulligan Rules

The way you want to mulligan with this deck is to make sure you have a hand that can either push out a Muxus, Goblin Grandee by turn 3 to 5 or have Goblin Chieftain in combination with Krenko, Mob Boss. The latter combination is weaker than Muxus and is prone to fail due to removal. If you notice the opponent has a black or red aligned companion, it might be better to just mulligan for a Muxus hand instead.

Regardless, this is what you’re looking for:

  1. Have either Muxus, Goblin Grandee or Goblin Matron in hand OR the above Krenko combo;
  2. Have three lands OR two lands if one is Phyrexian Tower;
  3. Have some form of ramp, either Skirk Prospector, Wily Goblin, Mind Stone, or Herald’s Horn; multiple is always better.

A “god” hand with this deck looks like this: three lands, Skirk Prospector, Wily Goblin, Muxus, Goblin Grandee. This allows a turn 3 Muxus.

Sideboard Guide

Colorless Ramp Matchups

Abrade

First, we have Abrade. This card is essential when you’re matched up against colorless ramp decks. It’ll allow you to destroy their Forsaken Monument. With Grafdigger’s Cage being the nemesis of this deck, having Abrade to remove it can be perfect as well.

You generally want to replace your Mind Stone and Herald’s Horn against those matchups. Reducing our number of goblins in the deck may make Muxus too inconsistent.

Artifact Hate

  • Goblin Cratermaker
  • Goblin Trashmaster

Goblin Cratermaker is here for a similar reason: destroying artifacts. This card can also eliminate an Ugin, the Spirit Dragon since it can destroy any non-land colorless target. In a pinch, it can be a source of creature removal as well.

Next, as far as artifact destruction goes, we have Goblin Trashmaster. While being a powerful goblin by itself and giving our other goblins +1/+1, it also lets you sacrifice a goblin to destroy target artifact. This is great to get rid of Grafdigger’s Cage and the like.

Goblin Matchups

Gempalm Incinerator is perfect against other Goblin decks since it’ll deal damage equal to the number of goblins on the field, not just those you control. You can use this card to destroy key pieces in their strategy like any of the 3-drop haste goblins or Skirk Prospector. Against other creature decks, this can also come in handy. On top of that, since it deals damage during its cycling effect, it’s a cantrip as well.

Board Wipe Matchups

Two extra copies of Herald’s Horn are excellent against matchups that keep destroying your board. Once you have a few of these horns on the field, your Muxus, Goblin Grandee will be very cheap to cast. Even casting a Goblin Matron means you can likely cast Muxus right after.

Strategic Matchups

Chandra, Torch of Defiance

Chandra, Torch of Defiance is one of the cards I never see myself siding in. While the removal and engine this card provides is excellent, I’d rather just add Herald’s Horn instead. Yet, there are some matchups where Chandra may come in handy, especially if you know this card won’t be destroyed easily. Chandra allows us to play a turn 4 or 5 Muxus, Goblin Grandee with her ramp ability, so it can be a strategic inclusion at times.

Hand Hate and Board Control Matchups

Two copies of Goblin Ringleader will make sure you can restock your hand with ease. These are handy against matchups that use a lot of hand hate and board control. Ringleader coming down usually gives you enough card advantage to undo any damage your opponent might have done.

BO1 Mana Maker

Irencrag Feat

Finally, two copies of Irencrag Feat. I love this card. For the longest time, I ran this in my mainboard. Playing an Irencrag Feat on turn 3 of 4 gives you enough mana to cast Muxus, Goblin Grandee. Since we’re in a more grindy meta now, I can see why Herald’s Horn is better. Still, in BO1, I will continue to run this card instead.

My Personal Take

Autumn’s deck is great. I’ve tested it a bit in the past days, and I love the ramp package. I saw it in the ranked queue a few times, so there must be other players running a similar deck, but I was skeptical until now. In my mind, since these cards aren’t goblins themselves, they reduce the consistency of the deck. Therefore, I never considered using them until now. I completely neglected the value Herald’s Horn provides before.

However, if you’re BO1 player, I think these colorless cards are too slow in the BO1 meta. Personally, I run two Gempalm Incinerators, one copy of Irencrag Feat, and a Goblin Ringleader in the mainboard instead. I’m seeing an uptick in the number of Grafdigger’s Cages in BO1, though, so I might end up adding a few Goblin Cratermakers and Goblin Trashmasters, which is something you may want to consider as well.

I haven’t tested these yet, but I think the main cards I’d take out would be two copies of Conspicuous Snoop and one copy of Krenko, Mob Boss. Not being able to let Muxus do Muxus things is just too painful, especially when there’s no game 2 and 3.

Another goblin I quite like in BO1 is Goblin Chainwhirler. There are many go-wide strategies with weak 1/1 creatures, so destroying all of those in one whirl is excellent. Having a 3/3 first striker isn’t too shabby either.

Personally, I’d run only one copy of Phyrexian Tower and only two or three copies of Castle Embereth. I say this because drawing into multiple Castles or Towers means your mana base is going to suffer. Also, since some Mountains in this deck are replaced with Shatterskull Smashing, you may end up in situations where the Castle can’t enter untapped. This is a risk I don’t like taking, so if you end up having issues with your mana base, consider replacing some copies of these with basic Mountains.

Goblin Goodbye

Phyrexian Tower

Phyrexian Tower | Illustration by Dimitar Marinski

I love goblins. I play them in Modern and Historic. Personally, I like Rakdos goblins thematically, but the mono red build is just very consistent. In Rakdos, you can pull off some silly tricks like bringing back a Goblin Chainwhirler with Call of the Death-Dweller, which turns it into a one-sided board wipe. Either way, if you want to grind the ranked ladder, this deck is great.

In BO1, the deck loses some of its efficiency once you reach Diamond and Mythic. Players seem to heavily gear against countering go-wide strategies of Collected Company and Goblin Grandee, so you might need to switch things up a bit once you reach this point.

I’ve seen many successful goblin players at the top, though. I’ve grinded my way to the top 300 in Mythic using a similar deck to this in BO1 and would likely be able to do it again if I wanted to. I still fear that someday Muxus, Goblin Grandee may get banned. The plays this card pulls off can be quite unfair after all.

However, a more logical target that could get banned is Skirk Prospector. This goblin allows turn 3 strategies that generally wouldn’t exist. If you happen to play this deck, let me know your spicy goblin tech and in which ratios you personally play the deck! For those of you that follow my YouTube, you might have seen that goblins are one of the decks I cover the most, going back to it at least once a month, so if you want to see it in action, feel free to hop over to there.

As always, hop on down to the comments if you wanna chat about this deck or Discord for a longer discussion. With that said, thank you for reading today’s guide, and I hope you can get your top 1200 invite this month!

Historic is now fully degenerate

Here at Tempo, it’s been a while since we’ve taken a look at Historic, MTG Arena’s Eternal format. Last time we checked in, Winona, Joiner of Forces was threatening to take over the format with its turn 4 kill potential, Gruul Aggro was providing the raw beats, and Nexus of Fate and Field of the Dead were hanging back and grinding people out. It has been a while, but Historic is an Eternal format, and it’s only been a couple of months. Surely not much could have changed since then, right…?

 Winota, Joiner of Forces… banned.

Well that didn’t take very long, did it? Maybe Wizards of the Coast is serious about curating the balance in Historic, after all. Oh well, we still have Gruul, Nexus of Fate, and Field of the Dead—so we still have plenty of disgusting things to do, don’t we?

Agent of Treachery, Winota, Fires of Invention, and Nexus of Fate… banned. Burning-Tree Emissary suspended.

Oh. So now we can’t play with Burning-Tree Emissary and Nexus of Fate, which means Gruul Aggro and Simic Nexus are no longer factors. We still have Field of the Dead, though. Perhaps the format adjusts to revolve around Simic-based Field of the Dead decks? Core Set 2021 gave us some cool stuff like Scavenging Ooze and Ugin the Spirit Dragon, but adding a few good cards probably isn’t a big game changer. After all, this is an Eternal format, where you can play all of the (legal) cards released in MTG Arena.

Wait, what about Jumpstart?

The release of Jumpstart on MTGA

Jumpstart is a special event set that injects hundreds of new cards into the Historic ecosystem. Among those cards, we have a wide range of powerful reprints from sets throughout Magic’s history, along with some brand-new cards that we’ve never seen before. Jumpstart isn’t Standard legal, but alongside the recent bans, the set has thrown Historic into a state of upheaval. To illustrate, here’s a sneak peek at the Jumpstart cards that are having the biggest impact.

Chromatic SphereCraterhoof BehemothMagmaquake

That’s a lot of power. Take back everything we said before about Wizards of the Coast curating balance in this format: Historic is now fully degenerate. Combo decks rule the roost, turn 3 or 4 kills are relatively commonplace, and if you can somehow dodge a combo kill in the early game, Field of the Dead is still there to grind you out in the late game.

The power levels are high, but the field is surprisingly open, with a variety of viable strategies that can be played. Let’s take a closer look at the biggest decks in post-Jumpstart Historic.

Muxus Goblins

Muxus Goblins by @sortreew

Let’s put it simply: Muxus, Goblin Grandee is broken beyond all reason. This card single-handedly turns a linear tribal aggro deck into an explosive combo deck with a possible turn 3 kill.

Wait, seriously? A turn 3 kill? Yes, and it’s more likely than you think. Here’s how it works:

Turn 1
Play Skirk Prospector.
Turn 2
Play Goblin Instigator or Wily Goblin. Notice how both of those cards represent 2 mana that you can generate with Skirk Prospector next turn.
Turn 3
Sacrifice your Goblins to Skirk Prospector to reach 6 mana and cast Muxus. If Muxus’s enters-the-battlefield trigger finds you at least one Goblin Chieftain, one Krenko, Mob Boss, and two other Goblins, you have a lethal board that can attack with Haste that turn.

Of course, you won’t always be able to cast Muxus on turn 3 or reveal instant lethal off of the Muxus trigger, but that’s OK. Usually, resolving Muxus at any point in the game will give you enough resources to take control, and if the first Muxus is somehow not enough, you can always play Goblin Matron and find another one.

When the deck isn’t casting Muxus, it plays like a tribal aggro deck whose creatures all synergize and work together to provide the traditional beats. However, unlike a traditional aggro deck, Muxus Goblins isn’t dead in the water if the opponent deals with its swarm of creatures. Conspicuous Snoop and Goblin Ringleader can keep the Goblins player flush with the cards needed to rebuild easily. If all else fails, it can always topdeck its haymaker six drop to swing the game back in its favor, if not win the game outright.

Thanks to Muxus, Goblins is the format’s public enemy number one, since it’s overwhelmingly powerful and massively popular. In order to beat Muxus Goblins consistently, you have to not only be able to keep the board clear but also be able to either kill the Goblins player before Muxus comes down or counter the creature. The Goblins deck has multiple angles of attack, and covering all of those angles is easier said than done.

Muxus Goblins by @MichaelJMajors

Muxus Goblins is certainly powerful, but there’s quite a bit of debate on what the best build of Goblins will be. The deck is still being refined, and it’s unclear if cards like Gempalm Incinerator and Goblin Chainwhirler belong in the main and what the ideal ratio of Goblin Warchiefs to Goblin Chieftains is. There’s even a debate on what the correct colors are, with some players opting to splash black in the mana base in order to fit a sideboard package of Goblin Chainwhirler and Call of the Death Dweller in order to better counter the mirror.

Will Goblins take over the format completely? Despite its early kill potential and surprising endurance, Goblins hasn’t become the end-all and be-all of the format just yet. There are still plenty of other powerful strategies in Historic, and most of them are being tuned to give Goblins a run for their money.

Temur Reclamation

Temur Reclamation by @crokeyz

Even though Nexus of Fate is now banned, Wilderness Reclamation decks are still alive and well in Historic. This shouldn’t come as a shock, considering how dominant Temur Reclamation is in Standard and how you can now play eight copies of Growth Spiral in Historic.

...Wait, what?

Growth SpiralExplore

Fresh out of Jumpstart, Explore is an extra Growth Spiral effect that gives Simic decks an unparalleled level of redundancy in their ramp. With Explore, Growth Spiral, and Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath all in the mix, and with the quality of mana in Historic being leaps and bounds ahead of Standard thanks to the checklands (e.g., Hinterland Harbor), Temur Reclamation has never been more consistent.

Beyond Explore, Historic Temur Reclamation has access to a few tricks that you won’t see in Standard. The most notable is Magmaquake, which stops Goblins and other board-centric aggro decks in their tracks. The other big addition is Field of the Dead, which gives Temur yet another angle of attack beyond its core combo. Field’s Zombie tokens can block as well as they can attack, and they can often make the difference between dying to aggression and living long enough for Wilderness Reclamation or Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath to take over the game.

Temur Reclamation without Field of the Dead, by Zach Dubin

Like with Goblins, there’s still quite a bit of debate on the ideal Historic build of Wilderness Reclamation. Explore and Field of the Dead aren’t seeing universal play quite yet, with some players opting to play less ramp, fewer lands, and more disruption. Builds without Field of the Dead tend to have more consistent mana quality and more options (e.g., Essence Scatter, Scorching Dragonfire) for dealing with early threats. The core of the deck is the same, but there are so many options. . . .

Golos Field

Golos Field by @Cardarelli39V

Of course, there’s more to the Growth Spiral and Explore package than just Wilderness Reclamation. Field of the Dead by itself is a solid archetype in its own right, packing Elvish Rejuvenator, Migration Path, and Golos, Tireless Pilgrim in addition to Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath—all to ensure that Field of the Dead goes online early and takes over the game quickly. Beyond that, Golos Field takes several pages out of Standard Bant’s playbook, using Teferi, Time Raveler to lock out control decks, Shatter the Sky to shut down aggro decks, and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon to go well over the top.

The Golos Field mana base is Bant at its core, but it includes lands of all five colors, which allows it to consistently activate the abilities of both Golos, Tireless Pilgrim and Kenrith, the Returned King. Kenrith is particularly interesting in the deck, since it provides a way to give the tokens Haste for an alpha strike out of nowhere—its other abilities also have a wide range of applications. The aggressive levels of ramp also enable you to reliably cast Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunter, which instantly answers your opponent’s threats and usually ends the game on the spot.

Like Goblins and Temur, Field of the Dead decks haven’t quite settled what the ideal build looks like just yet. Scapeshift combo builds are still seeing some play, but Scapeshift is usually considered redundant to Golos and is therefore mostly being phased out.

Jund Sacrifice

Jund Sacrifice by @Crokeyz

Jund Sacrifice is yet another deck that ports over well from Standard—not just on the basis of power level alone but also on the basis of the tools it gains in this format. New from Jumpstart, Phyrexian Tower is not only an excellent way to activate Mayhem Devil but it’s also an easy method to convert wayward Goat tokens and Cauldron Familiars into extra mana, making it easier than ever to ramp into Bolas’s Citadel and assemble combo kills out of nowhere. Historic also gives the deck Stitcher’s Supplier—which loads the graveyard for Woe Strider and gives you a way to reset the top of your deck for Bolas’s Citadel—as well as an improved mana base with Dragonskull Summit and Woodland Cemetery.

Jund is certainly more consistent here than in Standard, but it also has an advantage in meta positioning in Historic as well. Mayhem Devil is savagely effective against Goblins if you have the Cauldron Familiar and Witch’s Oven engine going, allowing you to mow down their early threats easily and build your own threats before Goblins can get to 6 mana to naturally cast Muxus. Against other decks, you can use the same Mayhem Devil engine to manage the board, or you can lean toward building a one-turn kill with Bolas’s Citadel. The format’s major players are usually more interested in building their own threats than they are in disrupting yours, so aside from Magmaquake out of Temur or Shatter the Sky out of Golos, there’s not much to stop Jund from making its game plan work—at least in game 1. After sideboards, it’s a little different, and Jund may find itself getting hosed by the same kind of anti-creature hate that players are likely to bring in against Goblins. Even so, Jund certainly still has a place at the table.

Kethis Combo

Kethis Combo by @ginky

Kethis Combo is a deck you may recognize from M20 Standard, before the most recent rotation. Despite being overshadowed by more prominent combo decks throughout its time in Historic, it stands as one of the scariest combo decks in the format now, especially after the most recent bans.

The deck revolves around using Diligent Excavator and Emry, Lurker of the Loch to dump Legendary cards from your deck into your graveyard, then using Kethis, the Hidden Hand to cast those cards—specifically Mox Amber—over and over again. Once you have Diligent Excavator and Kethis on board and two or more copies of Mox Amber in your graveyard, you can activate Kethis and loop Mox Ambers indefinitely, continuously dump cards from your deck and generate mana with your Moxes until your deck is empty, then activate Jace, Wielder of Mysteries for the win. If your Jace is exiled, you can also win by setting up a board of Diligent Excavators and pointing their triggers at your opponent to deck them or by looping two copies of Oath of Kaya and pointing them at your opponent’s face to burn them out.

New from Jumpstart, Chromatic Sphere helps the deck draw cards and trigger its Diligent Excavators and can be looped with Emry to draw even more extra cards in the turns before it goes off. Chromatic Sphere also helps out with color fixing, which is a big deal for a four-color combo deck with a lot of moving parts. Aside from Chromatic Sphere and the Triomes, not much else has changed since its heyday in the M20 Standard meta.

Kethis Combo can be a complicated deck to play well, but since it operates on a different axis than Goblins does, it has a few advantages in the current meta. Against Goblins, the opponent has no real way to interact with you in game 1, so if you’re able to dodge Muxus and buy time with cards like Teferi, Time Raveler and Oath of Kaya, you should be able to run through your combo uncontested. After sideboard, the deck assumes more of a control role, using cards like Massacre Girl and Urza’s Ruinous Blast to keep your life total stable while you build resources and play around your opponent’s graveyard hate. Most other matchups have a similar dynamic: the first game is an uninteractive race, and the second and third games come down to how well you can adapt to your opponent’s sideboard.

Overall, Kethis is best suited to attack opponents who are unprepared to interact with it. Because of this, it may find a home as a boogeyman in best-of-one queues, and it may stand out as a deck to beat in the upcoming Arena Open.

Other things you can do

Post-Jumpstart Historic is still relatively underdeveloped. Beyond the decks that we’ve mentioned above, there may still be dozens of archetypes that can become major players with the right tuning. Here’s a quick snapshot of some other solid decks that have the potential to rise up in the coming weeks.

Boros Feather: This is another old Standard archetype that’s sitting on the fringe in Historic, but it’s starting to post solid results both in ladder and in tournaments. Jumpstart itself hasn’t added anything new to the deck, but other recent sets have, with Fight as One from Ikoria providing redundancy with God’s Willing and Seasoned Hallowblade from M21 giving you extra virtual copies of Adanto Vanguard. By building up resilient early threats, it presents a difficult challenge for decks like Temur Reclamation that aren’t well positioned to interact with it.

Underworld Breach Combo: This deck operates very similarly to the Kethis Combo, where it dumps its deck by Diligent Excavators—but instead of using Kethis, the Hidden Hand to recur Mox Amber from the graveyard, it uses Underworld Breach and Lurrus of the Dream-Den instead. Once the loop is established, it wins either by playing Thassa’s Oracle with an empty deck or by building a massive swarm of Servo tokens with Saheeli, Sublime Artificer. Underworld Breach Combo loses some of the Kethis version’s flexibility, but the loop is more straightforward and provides a more direct kill with Thassa’s Oracle.

Mono-Green Elves: Goblins aren’t the only classic tribe that have received support in Historic-only sets. Elves have also seen some love, most recently in the form of Allosaurus Shepherd and Elvish Archdruid from Jumpstart. Unfortunately, Elves do not have an over-the-top bomb like Muxus, Goblin Grandee to carry them into the promised land. However, Elves are still viable as a decent linear aggro deck, and they have the ability to draw through their deck quickly with cards like Elvish Visionary, Vanquisher’s Banner, and The Great Henge. Just cross your fingers and hope your opponent doesn’t have the sweeper.

Lukka Tokens: Craterhoof Behemoth is a classic green uber-finisher that was released in Jumpstart, and it’s only a matter of time before someone breaks the card in half. Lukka Tokens attempts to do so by flooding the board with tokens from cards like Raise the Alarm and Forbidden Friendship, using Transmogrify or Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast to transform one of those tokens into Craterhoof Behemoth, and attacking for an absurd amount. The trouble is getting your token army to stick, and in a world where Magmaquake is popular, that’s sometimes easier said than done.

Mono-Blue Tempo: Mono-Blue is a perennial favorite in Historic, even if it’s not always at the top of the meta. The most recent builds utilize both Lofty Denial and Lookout’s Dispersal as 2-mana counterspells, and since both Siren Stormtamer and Spectral Sailor are Flying Pirates, these counters almost always can be cast on curve for full value. In a format dominated by insane plays, a steady supply of counterspells and beatdowns might be enough to carry you to victory, as long as you keep the cards flowing with Curious Obsession or Sea-Dasher Octopus.

The Takeaways

Between the recent waves of bannings and the recent releases of Jumpstart and M21, Historic is in a state of flux. The dust is still settling, but so far, we can clearly see Goblins standing on one side and Temur Reclamation standing on the other, with Field of the Dead and other strategies stuck in the middle.

Going into the upcoming Historic Arena Open, combo decks are king, and if you’re not playing an overpowered strategy like Goblins, you need to have a way to beat them. As for the future of the format, it all hinges on whether or not the meta comes to terms with the crazy power of Goblins. If the Historic meta can’t cope, then it comes down to what Wizards of the Coast will do about it. Either way, you can expect Historic’s power level to be in a league of its own for a long time to come.

Magic: The Gathering Arena player Altheriax finished on top of the Constructed ladder for November 2020, after dominating the ranks throughout the month with his Historic Goblins deck.

Over on Twitter, he shared his resulits revealing that he finished 29 out of the 30 days of the season at the #1 spot, and he has the screen captures to prove it. 

The top 1,200 players on the MTG Arena ladder get an invite to the Qualifier Weekends for Championships, and many players are chasing for the top spot every season. 

 

Altheriax shared the full decklist along with a sideboard guide for best-of-three ranked matches. Most of the maindeck cards are what you'd expect from a typical Goblins deck, but with the addition of two Chandra, Torch of Defiance from the recently-released Kaladesh Remastered set. In the sideboard, there are four Soul-Guide Lanterns against graveyard strategies, four Abrades against creature-based decks and Artifacts, and a couple of Herald's Horn against Control. 

Rivals League member Christian Hauck was trying to take the top spot from Altheriax, but even after winning nine consecutive matches as #2 ranked, he didn't make it to the top.

Congrats to Altheriax for making it to the top of the November 2020 Constructed ladder in MTG Arena

The buildup toward the release of Historic Horizons is now at its peak, and it's time to look at which existing decks stand to improve the most from the avalanche of new cards that are about to hit Historic. In some cases, a deck that already is good only needs one card from Historic Horizons in order to improve it, and in other cases I have gone for completely new takes on established decks.

#1: Tempered Steel

Tempered Steel beatdown decks have been around in Historic, but never really gained enough traction to be considered top tier. Now there are a lot of new artifacts and synergy cards getting added to the format, to the point that this could be a viable strategy. Here is what I have come up with:

Cards

This list is fairly cookie cutter, trying to maximize on all the best options. Each cheap artifact creature gets incrementally better because of the existence of Tempered Steel. Being able to beef up all the creatures in the deck goes a long way, and even makes a card like Ornithopter a reasonable inclusion.

Besides the good old beatdown strategy, we gain access to Thought Monitor for some additional card advantage. Thought Monitor is this deck's late game, and is going to help you to not run out of gas. You can also draw some cards off Esper Sentinel if the opponent allows you to do so. The deck closes games out by either a super fast aggressive draw, going over the top with card draw, or by Emry, Lurker of the Loch gaining you a bunch of value. With so many artifacts in the deck Emry seems worth it as a threat the opponent essentially has to answer.

#2: Izzet Phoenix

Cards

If you have been playing Historic lately, you will be extremely familiar with Izzet Phoenix. The deck is worse without Brainstorm, and we see Warlord's Fury being used as a replacement here. While Izzet Phoenix is no longer the undisputed best deck in Historic, it is easily a top 5 strategy.

However, Historic Horizons should help Izzet Phoenix to regain that top spot in the format, as the addition of Unholy Heat should be a nice one. This deck loves having a card that can scale up and deal with large threats for a one mana investment. Making it to delirium in a deck with Faithless Looting and lots of other cantrips is a very reasonable ask.

This is a list from before Historic Horizons, because there is one simple card swap that makes the deck better. Notice those three copies of Shock? I fully expect Unholy Heat to take the place of Shock, and Unholy Heat might actually be good enough that it makes sense to play the full playset. Even against decks that spot removal isn't typically good, Unholy Heat should have some important applications. This can deal with larger threats like a Torrential Gearhulk or a planeswalker, which solves a lot of issues for the Izzet Phoenix deck.

#3: Golgari Citadel

Bolas's Citadel decks have not been super present in Historic lately, though they are still well known. Jund Sacrifice has been the flavor of sacrifice for a while now, but there are a few reasons that Golgari Citadel may make a comeback. This is a list I have put together that has promise:

Cards

There's a lot to like about this deck, and it could be the direction sacrifice decks go in the future, though it is of course very different from the version with cards like Cauldron Familiar and Witch's Oven. The deck is far from proven right now, and some numbers may end up needing to be adjusted. Key pieces to the deck like Yawgmoth, Thran Physician and Bolas's Citadel could end up being so important there should be four copies of them, though there is the obvious drawback of drawing two of a legendary card.

This deck models versions of the Bolas's Citadel deck that have been successful previously. While not brand new, both Shambling Ghast and Prosperous Innkeeper play well with what the deck is trying to do. Ramping into a Bolas's Citadel is going to be one of the easiest ways to win games, and both these cards create treasures to help enable that to happen.

With the addition of Yawgmoth, Thran Physician you want to have plenty of creatures that you don't mind sacrificing, and this deck provides them. You get a ton of value from sacrificing most of the creatures in this deck, which will help provide card draw to dig through your deck. It is not difficult to get Yawgmoth, Thran Physician down on turn three, so against opposing creature decks this deck should have some incredible turns, as you wipe away opposing creatures with the ability of Yawgmoth.

The deck ultimately wins a lot of games by draining the opponent out. Not only are there four copies of Blood Artist, but there are even a couple Bastion of Remembrance. There are a bunch of sacrifice outlets as well, so creatures should be hitting the graveyard a lot as you churn through your deck. This is one of the decks I'm really excited to play with, as while it's not brand new, it feels like it should play pretty differently compared to older versions of the strategy.

#4: Goblins Combo

Goblins is a tribe that has suffered over the past year or so. Seemingly each addition to the Historic format doesn't benefit the Goblin tribe, and when you aren't gaining new tools it means you fall behind. It has gotten to the point that currently it is extremely rare to see Gobins, even on the MTG Arena ladder. The deck clearly needs to change course, so I want to present a combo-based version of the deck enabled by Historic Horizons.

Cards

This is a list based off some early versions of the strategy I have seen floating around. Rather than relying on pure aggression with cards like Conspicuous Snoop, Goblin Chieftain, and Krenko, Mob Boss, the deck goes in a completely different direction.

The combo makes infinite mana, and requires three cards: Skirk Prospector, Putrid Goblin, and Grumgully, the Generous. The idea is you repeatedly sacrifice the Putrid Goblin as many times as you want for a single red mana, and each time it will come back onto the battlefield as it was before, thanks to Grumgully. Putrid Goblin seems like an innocuous persist creature, but this little Goblin has the ability to grant Goblins access to infinite mana, and that's a big deal.

Normally I wouldn't get too excited about a combo that requires three cards, but this one is pretty easy to assemble. Goblin Matron or Muxus, Goblin Grandee find the pieces of the combo since they are all Goblins. I wasn't sure whether the deck wants Collected Company or Goblin Ringleader in the four-drop slot, but I'm going with Collected Company for now, since it enables more turn-three wins.

Casting a turn-three Collected Company can fairly easily lead to having all three of your combo creatures in play. Once you have the infinite mana there are two Goblins in the deck that lead to a win if you have them or can search for them: Battle Cry Goblin and Pashalik Mons. Both these creatures have abilities you can repeatedly activate. Beyond these, if you have a Den of the Bugbear in play you can attack with, it can also be activated repeatedly to turn infinite mana into infinite 1/1s.

Even without the combo, the deck can win simply by ramping into Muxus, Goblin Grandee, though I think most wins will come off the combo. That's why I have Goblin Warchief here over Goblin Chieftain, as being able to cast your Goblins for a mana less is going to make it easier to do everything you want in a single turn. I even threw in one copy of Munitions Expert as an upgrade to Gempalm Incinerator, especially in a Collected Company deck. I'm very interested to see how this deck plays out.

#5: Rakdos Arcanist

The last deck I want to talk about is Rakdos Arcanist. There are a few new cards from Historic Horizons that should contend for slots in this deck. At the same time, it is a flexible strategy, so there are a few different ways to build the deck. Here is the version that I would like to try:

Cards

I am presenting many new decks here without a sideboard, though definitely Davriel's Withering should be in there. This deck now includes Dragon's Rage Channeler, which should play nicely with what this deck is trying to do. Dragon's Rage Channeler will definitely have a big impact on the format, as pretty much all red aggressive decks should consider playing it.

Filling up the graveyard is still a primary part of the game plan, and the question becomes what the numbers of various cards in this deck should be. Young Pyromancer generates some tokens, which is pretty good alongside Village Rites. Getting to delirium is definitely a focus of the deck, so having Unholy Heat here as well makes some sense.

Some cuts do need to be made of course once you add new cards. I think Bone Shards will be better than Spark Harvest, but they are super similar so you are going to play one or the other. The tricky part about adding more creatures to the deck is that you can only play so many, as the deck needs instants and sorceries for cards like Dreadhorde Arcanist and Dragon's Rage Channeler. Some copies of Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger have been cut as a result, but I could see playing around with these choices more as the format evolves. This should be one of the top decks moving forward, as it was already pretty good before Historic Horizons.

Muxus Historic Brawl - MTGA Goblin Deck - MTG Arena

When I was looking for some interesting decklists, I came across this Goblin list that AlthMTG took to the #1 rank on Magic Arena.

For some reason, nobody has been playing Goblins in the big Historic tournaments lately. After the initial craziness around it during the Mythic Invitational, it has drastically dropped off in popularity. It could be thanks to its poor matchup against Jund Sacrifice, but thanks to the recent printing of Yasharn, that deck hasn’t been very popular either.

Yasharn is fairly good against this deck as well, making you unable to use Skirk Prospector, Phyrexian Tower, or Treasure tokens, and there has been a lot of main deck Aether Gusts lately, but there is no reason why Goblins shouldn’t still be showing up in decent numbers, as it is still one of the best and most consistent decks in the format.

The improvements from the older version is the addition of Shatterskull Smashing, which should almost always replace some Mountains in your deck if you are playing red, and also Herald’s Horn in the sideboard – good in grindy matchups.

Irencrag Feat is another ritual effect that lets you play Muxus faster and doesn’t get stopped by Yasharn.

Overall, Goblins is still a fine midrange/ramp deck that abuses the power of Muxus to explode a bunch of Goblins into play as early as turn three, ideally with one of the haste lords and Krenko, allowing you to create even more Goblins and go for a lethal attack.

This deck should still be very good in the current metagame, both best-of-one and best-of-three.
