I'm going to suggest Zurgo Helmsmasher here. He likes offense but he doesn't need to be on the field for the deck to work and he's in great colors for removal. There is great combat support from Ankle Shanker plus the Raid and Battalion effects. If you want more control I'm sure Scythe Specter, Barbed Shocker, and friends could help to truly disrupt your opponents.

Also, if you're still interested in Ruric Thar, the Unbowed... Basilisk Collar

Have you considered Ankle Shanker? Nice card with power less than 2.

Oloro_Magic I like Goblin War Strike but I'd have to be very wide for it to be strictly better than Goblin Grenade. I'm unsure if I'll be in that ideal scenario enough to merit dropping grenade for war strike.

I also like your suggestion for Goblin Lackey. I haven't had counter-spells wreak enough havoc on this deck enough to start dedicating a "put" slot to it; Maybe drop Mogg Fanatic for it? I'm not sure. I have another goblin deck that I use for kitchen table 2-headed giant matches that uses Krenko, Mob Boss and Ankle Shanker to generate a lot of tokens with first strike and death touch. Lackey might be appropriate for that one as it will get the Ankle Shanker out faster.

Good question. The answer is it used to have a lot more artifacts. At one point there were 2 gearhulks and more mana-rocks. It needs to come out.

Thank you for the other suggestions. I will definitely pick up Akroma's Memorial, and Hero's Downfall. I have an Ankle Shanker that can definitely find a home here.

Quick question : why Inventors' Fair with only 9 artifacts in the whole deck? Both abilities requires 3 or more artifacts to work...

Also : Zurgo Helmsmasher, Akroma's Memorial, Hero's Downfall (an instant speed Ruinous Path!), Ankle Shanker...

Ankle Shanker isn't a warrior so even though it is game-breaking it doesn't get any tribal support and at 5 mana for a 2/2 it is quite weak.

Ankle Shanker is fun in those types of decks

A Command Tower, Commander's Sphere and Sol Ring wouldn't hurt to get your game rollin' nice and fast.
