Darksteel Citadel Discussion

But, I have never really done a goblin deck before, just some thoughts.

Looks really solid. Heres a few cards to consider: Buried Ruin and Steelshaper's Gift for the artifact suite, Lightning Greaves and Basilisk Collar, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Godsend, Masterwork of Ingenuity, Stoneforge Masterwork, Darksteel Citadel, Mox Opal, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, and Spirit of the Hearth. +1!

Btw, I run Blinkmoth Nexus/Inkmoth Nexus for metalcraft, with Dispatch, if they turn off metalcraft in response to it, you can tap the nexus and use its mana to turn itself into a creature. Same reason I like Ancient Den and Darksteel Citadel, though they are more static.

Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh......I'm not sure about this just yet. One of the benefits of Affinity is the power of its man lands and an explosive early game. Tron just gets put together, then starts doing unfair things (like turn 3 Karn Liberated).
This current iteration seems like a weaker version of Mono-Brown Eldrazi Tron, except it doesn't have Eldrazi Temple. At the same time, it's not nearly as fast as Affinity because it doesn't have Springleaf Drum and a bunch of 1 and 0 CMC creatures.
Which brings me to this:
...which is a Vintage deck. Of course, we're looking for Modern options, but there's some cool things going on that I think you should see.
Third, look at the creatures. It's using Arcbound Ravager, Walking Ballista and Hangarback Walker just like you are, but it's forgoing the high CMC artifacts in favor of Phyrexian Revoker, Lodestone Golem, Thorn of Amethyst, and Sphere of Resistance.
So how can we port this to Modern? I think you're right playing Tron lands, but then I'd toss in Inkmoth Nexus and Blinkmoth Nexus. Maybe you play Glimmervoid, Darksteel Citadel, Academy Ruins, Buried Ruin, and some basics if you have room.
But probably the strongest aspect to playing this type of deck in Modern? Trinisphere, Thorn of Amethyst, Chalice of the Void, and Lodestone Golem are all unrestricted, unlike Vintage where you can only have 1 of each. Probably the dumbest thing you could do is play a turn 2 Trinisphere/Thorn of Amethyst into turn 3 Ghost Quarter and Lodestone Golem.
The thing you have to be mindful of is that your mana base isn't as good as it is in Vintage, so too many Sphere of Resistance effects can cripple you more than your opponent. You also have to decide between playing a bunch of powerful 1-mana accelerators (Expedition Map, Springleaf Drum, and so on) or Chalice of the Void. I'd also forgo some of the higher CMC cards normally seen in Tron like Ugin, the Spirit Dragon. Swap these out for cards like Phyrexian Revoker or Thought-Knot Seer.

thanks a lot for your in-depth comment.
first off, I should REALLY update this list, because I've gone through even more testing and settled at a slightly different 75. Most notably, 2nd mainboard past is gone, as is dragonlord atarka.
So far, a 1/1 emrakul split has seemed good, although I haven't had much of a chance to rigorously test this ratio. However, my favorite recent addition to the deck (which is undocumented in this list) is Vraska's Contempt. this card can deal with indestructible creatures (like the Ensoul Artifact onto Darksteel Citadel which you mentioned, Rhonas the Indomitable, and more), as well as pretty much any other threat our opponents throw at us. the life gain helps a bit too.
I love the flip nissa suggestion (I don't remember why I digressed from it early in testing...should really try it again). nissa's renewal has been very underwhelming in my testing, and I found that sticking a kalitas gave me enough life gain to win against aggro decks.
thanks again for you suggestions! (I know I haven't addressed all of them, but I promise that I read them!) I'll certainly keep them in mind as I continue to improve the deck.
