(1)(Red), Sacrifice a Goblin: Arms Dealer deals 4 damage to target creature.
I finally got to play with this deck against a friend of mine who's pretty damn good at Magic and I did pretty well. The game was awesome. I was playing his... let's say Modern-ish Goblin deck with Krenko, Mob Boss , Goblin Arsonist , Fervor , Goblin Rally , and Arms Dealer . At one point I had a Felhide Petrifier and a Ragemonger out and he sacked his two Goblin Arsonist to ping my creatures for four damage each (killing them) with Arms Dealer . Well I got to use my combo of: Damage, Rakdos, Lord of Riots , Profit. I had a Felhide Petrifier , Ragemonger , and a Rageblood Shaman out for a total of 8 damage. It all went through. Cast Rakdos, Lord of Riots Main two, and freecasted two Fanatic of Mogis and killed him in one turn from 20 life to zero. It was great. This deck performed beyond my expectations.
Goblin guide is 10 card so a big no no for budget. i know i should not include Artillerize but i think i rather swap it for Voracious Dragon and Arms Dealer since I didnt include lightning bolt because it goes against my vision of this deck.
Vicious Betrayal is a bit weak becuase it's a sorcery, I think you can do better (even within a budget)
Ever considered Voracious Dragon ?
-big nasty flier
Arms Dealer is also a good value, he's made for this deck
Furnace Celebration could also get you more value out of your sacs
If you're not too sad about sacking some of your goblins, some good cards would be Goblin Grenade and Arms Dealer . Goblin Grenade is a great burn card in a goblin deck and Arms Dealer adds some needed removal. Taurean Mauler is also a great card in any deck and any tribal deck.
definitely not Goblin Rabblemaster , if you want more goblins you can do so much better.
Mudbutton Torchrunner is a great blocker and your opponent is unlikely to block, he's an even better sac fodder, but is 3 mana
Goblin Arsonist same thing as torchrunner, but only 1 mana and 1 damage., the perfect target for grenade.
Arms Dealer is a repeatable goblin grenade,
personally I wouldn't recommend anymore goblins, but if you must then definitley one of these over Goblin Rabblemaster, he's just terrible in a burn deck.
Food for thought:
Goblin Rally Goblin Sharpshooter Arms Dealer Flamewave Invoker Foundry Street Denizen Frenzied Goblin Goblin Chirurgeon Goblin Diplomats Gempalm Incinerator Goblin Sledder Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician Mudbutton Torchrunner Reckless One Skirk Fire Marshal Skirk Prospector Goblin Burrows and of course Raging Goblin
I have been thinking about Goblin Guide but the rest are ones I am not looking into. Like Arms Dealer is sacking my guys when krenko wants all my guys on the field to get more goblins. Krenko's Command can be slow because a turn 2 play would be Dreadbore or Terminate or maybe Warren Instigator . Blood Crypt is probably a great fixer or Dragonskull Summit . Mizzium Mortars should replaced for what though?
