Master of…Goblins?

From Friday Night Magic to the Pro Tour, Adam Prosak loves all types of tournament Magic. Currently, Adam is working in R&D as a developer.

Turn one, Judge's Familiar. Turn two, Frostburn Weird. You settle in for your match against Mono-Blue Devotion, knowing that a Nightveil Specter or Thassa, God of the Sea is coming the next turn. You feel confident, as you've practiced against Mono-Blue Devotion and know what you need to do to win.

Mountain, Goblin Rabblemaster. Hrm, maybe this isn't what you expected.

Magic Online user signblindman has built a unique deck full of unexpected cards and synergies. This deck has a lot of token-making capabilities in the form of Goblin Rabblemaster, Master of Waves, and Young Pyromancer. Master of Waves is not coveted for its ability to capitalize on devotion to blue, but for its ability to boost Elementals! That's right, each token generated by Young Pyromancer will receive a boost from Master of Waves!

This deck seems like a nightmare to play against for other aggressive red decks, with 14 burn spells that cost 2 or less mana keeping the problematic creatures off the opposing side of the table. The token making will provide lots of blockers as well, especially once the burn spells take care of Legion Loyalist. And finally, protection from red on Master of Waves is just a huge obstacle for any red deck to overcome. If you find yourself wanting to beat up on small red decks, I recommend giving this deck a try!
