Chancellor of the Forge

Creature — Giant

You may reveal this card from your opening hand. If you do, at the beginning of the first upkeep, put a 1/1 red Goblin creature token with haste onto the battlefield. When Chancellor of the Furnace enters the battlefield, put X 1/1 red Goblin creatures with haste onto the battlefield, where X is the number of creatures you control.

Chancellor of the Forge Discussion

ZombieCat on Krenko, Mob Boss

Cards I'd cut:

Caged Sun - It's over the curve of the deck

Helm of the Host - Not really needed

Slate of Ancestry - No reliquary tower

Stoneforge Masterwork - Not needed

Sword of the Paruns - Not needed / doesn't help the deck

Goblin Warrens - Not worth it

In the Web of War - Shared animosity is in your build, good.

Mass Hysteria - Fevor and Hammer are fine

Rise of the Hobgoblins - Nope

Kyren Negotiations - Not worth it

Burn at the Stake - Not worth it, need to lower your curve

Descent of the Dragons - Lower your curve

Chancellor of the Forge - Depends on how much you like this.. otherwise, lower your curve

As for what I'd add...

Chaos Warp - Red has little enchantment removal, this gets around that. Can also target one of your goblins for free stuff

Beetleback Chief - Value

Goblin King - This is a wincon with Blood Moon

Blood Moon - Shuts down strip mine and other annoying lands

Goblin Piledriver - THIS is goblins

Imperial Recruiter - Value

Legion Loyalist - Trample

Ogre Battledriver - Value, haste +2/+0

Reckless One - Value when you have board state

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - Value

Ancient Tomb - T2 Krenko

There's a ton of new goblins in M19, keep an eye out. I've got a Krenko build too if you want to check it out. Hope this helped you out.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker out for Kusari-Gama. Now that all the infinites are removed for my regular playgroup, it doesn't make sense to have Kiki in here anymore. The only thing of significance he can really copy is Chancellor of the Forge or one of the tutors, which isn't that great, especially if I have to hardcast him for 2RRR.

Hi there kmanz23 I love Goblin decks and am more than happy to make some suggestions:

  • Lightning Crafter can be used to create an infinite damage loop with Kiki-Jiki and Goblin Bombardment, you champion Kiki and sacrifice the crafter token after tapping it to deal damage, this will bring Kiki back - rinse and repeat
  • Goblin Sledder + Goblin Tunneler can instantly kill an opponent if you make sledder unblockable before making the sacrifice
  • Chancellor of the Forge is Krenko Jr for these kind of decks and can be copied by Kiki
  • Hellrider and Purphoros, God of the Forge can be used to burn opponents hard once you start spawning the horde

Hope these suggestions help, if you want more ideas please check out my deck

, I'd love to hear some feedback - did you know there is a thread in the forums for advertising Commander decks too?

Dragon Broodmother kann nicht dein Commander sein, Alternativen fuer ne Lifegain / Token / Devour Strategie waeren:

Empfehle ausserdem Karten die nix mit dem Lifegain / Token / Devour Theme zu tun haben (wie z.B. Flameblast Dragon, Radha, Heir to Keld etc.) zu replacen:


Theoretical on Modern Goblin Aggro

I don't think that Chancellor of the Forge would fit here. I would be looking for more ramp instead of racing to get the opponent down to zero life. Spikeshot Elder could make it into the sidebar in case I need another win condition. Hellrider is a pretty good call out, as it activates other abilities in the deck as well. However if I'm just looking for more cards that activate other abilities in play, Ash Zealot might be better.

I would say that you may need more haste enabling Goblin Chieftains. Also Shared Animosity and Spikeshot Elder is a lot of fun with goblins. You could also consider some other late game bombs like Hellrider, Voracious Dragon, or Chancellor of the Forge although you may need more ramp from something like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx in order to cast those early. I know I'm throwing a lot of thoughts at you but there are just so many things you can build around in a deck like this.
