ilike the The Flame of Keld. what do you think about Fanatical Firebrand vs Mogg Fanatic The haste might be better for early damage.

I think Fanatical Firebrand should be in this list somewhere. Goblin Bushwhacker Has always been a decent card also. Foundry Street Denizen great goblin.

if in budget Goblin Guide is a must with Legion Loyalist

Goblin Rabblemaster great card to consider. Not seen in a lot of lists but could be good in the side

I've tested this against Aggro and I have some thoughts.

  1. For a Control deck 23 Lands feels a bit light. I usually go with 25 or 26. There were times I was waiting for a land.

  2. Aggro gets away with too many early hits against this, and its Creatures tend to stick. This could be remedied with some early removal such as Fungal Infection or Dead Weight.

  3. Pilfering Imp feels like a lot of work to look at an Opponent's hand. If it was a 1/2 it would be more viable, as it could also trade with early Creatures. One Fanatical Firebrand and it is gone.

  4. More Ritual of Soot in the Sideboard would help against Aggro. Maybe a playset?

Hope that helps.

Wow, so this is a lot more feedback than I was expecting! I'll try my best to process all of it.

So I've been playing MTG Arena quite a bit and I run a similar version of this deck on it, only with a few exclusions. I've been able to test a good bit of it against people and found that certain cards like Risk Factor don't work too well. However, Path of Mettle  Flip has been doing serious work against control and token decks. Many times my one drops get buffed by Mentor out of range, so it's a safer option. I also learned Fanatical Firebrand is pretty awesome due to its ability to ping off Llanowar Elves and other vital 1-toughness creatures, as well as trigger Path. Seal Away has also been good, but I agree that Justice Strike would be even better. Response / Resurgence at that point I'm on the fence about since I almost never cast the second half, while Lightning Strike gives a good deal of reach.

Lyra would be really good sideboard if I ever get my hands on some copies, so I'll definitely keep a look out. That might not happen in the near future but it's still a good idea. Shalai has also been doing work against control decks, so I'll certainly get some copies. The Summoner is certainly an option, might take out a few heavy cards and make that my late game, but I haven't decided yet.

Other than that I think removing 2 creatures for some Shock would do the deck some justice, especially with First Strike shenanigans.

Thank y'all for the suggestions! Lemmie know what you think!

Goblin Warchief+Skirk Prospector+Squee, the Immortal+Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle.

Infinite cast sac loop.

add Runaway Steam-Kin into the mix now you have infinite mana.

you can make mana and dump it into something like Makeshift Munitions or Banefire, or you can just reanimate all your cmc 3 or less goblins in your yard and attack in, but if one of them is Fanatical Firebrand, then you win also. You get to play Radiant Destiny and Conclave Tribunal just because. Potential to jam Ajani's Welcome if you really want to just to make the sac loop infinite life.

I'm not sure if many are aware of it yet, but there is a RW Goblin combo deck and it has a few main ways to kill people but the easiest one if Fanatical Firebrand, interested?

Also, Ghitu Lavarunner is probably the best one drop if you're going tribal wizards. Siren Stormtamer is a good sideboard pick, and Fanatical Firebrand is the most aggressively slanted. None of them are terrible cards, they all just do something different and it depends on the purpose you're using them for.

I'd run 4x goblin banneret over the Fanatical Firebrands, especially since they combo really well with one another. Make a Stand is an okay sideboard card and decent combat trick, Bounty Agent for the sideboard. Also, gotta run at least 1 Chance for Glory. Too spicy not to! Citywide Bust for sideboard against midrange/stompy, Conclave Tribunal or two as well for random removal against combo pieces. Maybe even try Deafening Clarion in the sideboard to clear weenies (like my elf deck) and get through for the win? I'd do 2 Rigging Runners instead of the firebrands. Dire Fleet Daredevil also for consideration. Probably go to 22 lands if you're doing all 1,2, & 3 drops.
