Faithless Looting Discussion

Hmm, with Goblin Guide is this playtesting against "itself" or against other decks? Because in my experience when I play Goblin Guide the damage it deals, generally attacking for at the very least two turns is undeniably worth even if they draw lands. In a run of a game it isn't uncommon to play any combination of either 2x Grenades, 1x grenade and 1x bolt, etc, so their life total where it's becoming lethal without even having to attack is fairly high. I generally prefer getting this early damage out because of the fact that it consistently provides the damage, and the potential land draw isn't something I mind at all. Also important to keep in mind about the guide is that it provides insight on what their deck is turn 1, it can soak up a destroy/deal damage spell, and when combined with their shock lands can really show up on the life total. I won't argue about it working for you or not, it's entirely up to you!
Sorry! I didn't realize you already mentioned that you wanted Cavern of Souls, but yes, definitely a great card in goblins deck. Also helps if you're into playing with groups of friends whom just built, or are building legacy decks. I've beaten Miracles, MUD, Stoneblade and Painter's Servant with majority of credit going to Cavern of Souls.
When I play Goblins, I find I'm using every last card to kill the opponent. I still think AEther Vial is fast, but I don't think it's worth it for putting out a goblin fighting force, because generally I find I don't have enough goblins in hand to make AEther Vial worth it whenever I first tested my deck with the Vials. Obviously, after extensive playtesting on your part you probably know if the Vials work for you or not, but do you think you need some cards to make up for the "loss" of cards in hand? Faithless Looting or Browbeat or something?
Krenko, Mob Boss is definitely the best drop off of Warren Instigator, yes, but what I find is very useful is the fact that since Warren Instigator gets killed almost every single time it's his turn to attack, Krenko, Mob Boss is still able to be played in the following turns, because it's not uncommon to have the 4 lands to play him. He is also just about an instantaneous win when paired with Goblin Chieftain, as I presume you can understand why.
What I use in my decks to make the opponents give a second thought to any possible board wipes and such is Tuktuk the Explorer as he is a giant threat when killed. He isn't a great card to cast from hand generally speaking, unless paired with a Goblin Grenade, but if you ever find that you're at a stalemate of board states against decks such as Elves or potential mirror matchups he is great at turning the tide. Also note, the 5/5 token TukTuk creates is actually a Goblin, therefore any buffs associated with goblins are his to take. Turn three Chieftain, Turn 4 TukTuk, goblin grenade, and attack for 6 isn't a bad combo.
Blood Moon is definitely a great card to have, especially with the eldrazi aggro which took 6/8 places in the last grand prix, it negates pretty well all their good lands that make their deck what it is. If you can't buy them all at once, definitely something to get over time.
Shared Animosity is definitely a fun card and when combined with Legion Loyalist is definitely a huge threat. It has won me more than one game, but at the same time I don't run any Goblin Bushwhacker so I don't know if that effect is enough or not.
Anyways, always fun looking at other goblin decks, and I wish you the best of luck! And as always, don't hesitate to comment back!

I'm also not sure if Idyllic Tutor is really warranted as you have only two enchantments.
Depending if you like the deck after you make it, you may consider these:

@idansim You can use Wooded Foothills and Polluted Delta to find a Blood Crypt. Notice how they say either "Mountain card" or "Swamp card" on them. Since Blood Crypt has the land subtype of Mountain Swamp, these fetchlands allow you to find the Blood Crypt and put it into play.
Also I would rather be running more copies of Bloodstained Mire over the Wooded Foothills and Polluted Delta, but you can only run four copies of a single card. The off color fetchlands were still better than Evolving Wilds due to the fact the mana comes into play untapped.
Just to run a possible scenario, I have an opener of Wooded Foothills, Faithless Looting, Inquisition of Kozilek, and four Bloodghast. We can crack the Wooded Foothills for a Blood Crypt, giving us both types of mana so we can cast the Faithless Looting and the Inquisition of Kozilek. In this case we would cast Faithless Looting and hope for another land, but we still have both colors of mana if we miss. Assuming that Wooded Foothills was a Evolving Wilds, we would mulligan. Turn 1 would be Evolving Wilds into Mountain, then turn 2 we would have to hope we get a black land to cast that Inquisition of Kozilek. It decreases the consistency and also slows us down by a turn even if everything works out.
I hope that I've explained it, but if you need more clarification then feel free to ask.

Oh, TheAlexGnan, I almost forgot. Earlier you said Eldrazi is the first matchup where Nighthawk looks awesome. There is actually 1 other matchup where Nighthawk is pretty backbreaking, and that is Affinity. The robots really don't like him. He's surprisingly good against a lot more of the meta than he should be, though, so I like him well enough, but those are the 2 matchups where he really shines.
Also, it turns out Rocket Science almost has as good of a matchup as this deck vs Colorless Eldrazi, but I know for a fact it doesn't line up well vs Processor Eldrazi, and I have yet to test it against UR Eldrazi. Being able to Terminate a Reality Smasher then discard a Bloodghast or Faithless Looting to it feels amazing. I'm beginning to think BR Vampire Tribal could be super killer vs Eldrazi, really good vs Affinity and Infect, and passable anywhere else. An excuse to run a lot of Kalitas, Bloodghast, and Nighthawk all in the same deck seems nice to me.
I was finding some highly surprising awkwardness with Snapcaster Mage, so I'm trying out Jace for a bit. I'll likely switch back again, but for now I want to try it out just to see how it goes.

Yeah - Have done some testing. Stormchaser Mage is definitely better than Delver in the context of my UR aggro/tempo deck, which runs fewer than the 30 instants and sorceries you want with Delver, and runs 4X Abbot of Keral Keep, who can be awkward with a lot of counterspells. So ultimately, I think a 12-creature Delver deck is a different animal from a 14-16 creature Prowess aggro deck - which is the direction I'm going. Still haven't sorted out a sideboard exactly.
I wouldn't love Stormchaser Mage in this Grixis challenge deck unless you really wanted to overhaul the landbase to be a little more UR friendly, which probably kills the $50 parameter. Stormchaser is worth considering over Young Pyromancer or Gurmag Angler, though. But then again, you may just want a third Angler, since Thought Scour and Faithless Looting really help fill the yard so well.

I don't think this kind of deck can have a gameplan other than to be conscious of the hate coming our way and to play around it as best as possible. Bojuka Bog seems pretty fringe, but if the Cascade in to Living End combo takes off we could see more Bogs. Leyline seems fringe/meta dependent, but totally hoses us. I think we'll most commonly see Rest in Peace in sideboards (D&T and Hatebears especially) and Relic of Progenitus mainboard (1 or 2 most likely) in Eldrazi decks (enable Processors) with smatterings of Nihil Spellbomb. The reason I say we have to try and play around these is even if you're holding an Abrupt Decay to respond to the Relic/Spellbomb/RiP, you can't do anything until AFTER the "exile your gameplan" goes on the stack (and in the case of Relic/Spellbomb you have no reason to even try and remove these as they just respond by sac/exile and your spell fizzles getting you 2 for 1'd). So it's just playing smart by thinking ahead and planning contingencies. I also think that targeted removal, like Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek would be extremely helpful here to help rip out the graveyard hate.
I think Golgari Brownscale is the best way to mitigate life-loss through fetching and shocks. Reason being that the dredge is what your deck wants to do, and with multiple ways cycle (Faithless Looting, Zombie Infestation, flashedback Conflagrate, Lightning Axe, and even self-targeted Raven's Crime) you can gain 2 life/turn pretty consistently. Levy has added Gnaw to the Bone in his most recent iteration of the deck, but I'm just not sure how effective that is given the low creature count of 14 (consider that Squee, Goblin Nabob and Bloodghast are easily and frequently recurred). Syphon Life works with the retrace/recycle theme, but I can't think of anything else on-theme for lifegain.

@TheAlexGnan I've seen Bloody Singleminded, I actually used it and Rocket Science as reference materials when I put together the original list. Although I think I can safely say that I use Faithless Looting better than you do, since I have more graveyard shenanigans.
And yeah, Tibalt is just pure value. Among my playgroup, the Burn player now fires off Bolts at Tibalt just to try to stop the problem before I get too much value. Crazy world we live in.
