Maybe Crackling Doom for random dmg and removal?

Daredevil Dragster, Sun Titan, Phyrexian Arena


Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere,


Anguished Unmaking, Crackling Doom, Terminate, Utter End, Return to Dust

Win Cons.:

Start Your Engines


Nomad Outpost Perfect Tri-color land.


Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Ankle Shanker, Mother of Runes To ensure you can get damage in and protect your key creatures.

Weldfast Engineer, Untethered Express

Potential Cuts:

Veteran Motorist I am not sure you get the value youre looking for.

Visara the Dreadful, Royal Assassin, Eradicate Seal of Doom You have plenty of single target removal. Look to add more board wipes.

Perilous Vault, Felhide Spiritbinder Too cute and not enough value from the mana sink as the token leaves.

Duelist's Heritage is a good card for giving double strike. Swords to Plowshares has been reprinted in commander 2016 so it should be relatively cheap. Not of This World is a good counter spell. Crackling Doom is decent removal.

I run a zurgo volrton deck and it does amazingly in French Zurgo's toolbox of death (the deck isn't right now but you'd just have to take out Sol Ring and Mana Vault

Yeah, I know there are a lot of creatures that arent goblins, and I would love there to be only goblins, but although I do want to keep the goblin theme, I dont want to miss out on cards that could really benefit this deck like Ogre Battledriver.

Goblin Guide would be super cool to have in this deck, but I dont use this deck often enough to drop 25 dollars on a single card, or even a 100 for four of them, but I do agree that it would be really good in this deck. I agree that something like Goblin Rabblemaster and Goblin Piledriver would have great synergy with the whole token theme of the deck, and I could probably buy two or three of both. Ankle Shanker would be absolutely nuts in this deck, thanks a lot for telling me about this card, I hope my shop has three or four of these cards. Im not too sure about Crackling Doom, I feel that one or two really powerful creatures shouldn't be much of a problem for this deck, but I think I could use this for a different deck im building so thanks, its a really good card, particularity for its cost.

Thanks a ton for all of this feedback, I really appreciate it!

Hey there,

You say that this is a Goblin deck, but you are running a lot of different creature types. I would advise cutting back on those and making this more Goblin tribal.

Also, I don't know how much of a budget you're on, but 4x Goblin Guide seems like a must in this deck. Also Goblin Rabblemaster and Goblin Piledriver seem like they would have tons of synergy with all your Goblins/token producers.

AnkleShanker is a fun card, and basically renders blocking your creatures a death trap, and adding in more extra combat step spells like Fury of the Horde really takes advantage of this.

Also Crackling Doom is a Mardu staple. Definitely recommend a 4 of.

If you are really only splashing black for Crackling Doom, which does not see much play anyway, I would just keep it to 2 colors - white and red. Also, 25 lands seem a bit much, you can probably cut 1 or 2 there.
