If your friends gave you Lightning bolds they are better friends than mine :)

Shock is a nice affordable burn spell that fits your style.

Add Fanatical Firebrand. Its a creature, but can do direct damage. Has haste so you can immediately do one damage.

Notes after Day 1: Shock was thinned to 2. Doesn't take enough out, but good finishing card if 2 damage is out of reach on the ground. Fanatical Firebrand was taken out as Grasping Scoundrel did more for the deck and needed a slot for Abrade.

I played this kind of deck before and I can only tell you that you need to drop 1 Dire Fleet Neckbreaker because you don’t often get to have 2 and for a fast deck you don’t want this.

Also drop 1 Dire Fleet Captain as it needs support.

Adds some 1 drop pirates, like Fanatical Firebrand

Drop to 2 Swashbuckling

Adding some counter is great, but bear in mind you will need to have some open mana to cast it, hence you either need generated treasures or just more land

thanks MagicMarc! most of the matches i play are against midrange or control at my lgs to be honest. however, there is the occasional red rush player and i actually find those to be the easiest match ups. i run a lot of small cmc creatures with high toughness so Goblin Chainwhirler and Fanatical Firebrand don't do much. a lot of times they're using two spells to kill one of my blockers and it feels great considering most of my creature package has a one and done ability attached. i suppose if you were running into a lot of problematic creatures you could very easily splash black or white (or both!) which of course opens up a lot of options. hope this helped!

Fanatical Firebrand out for Fungal Infection gives you early removal for cheap without hurting your dude quota.

Thanks for the suggestions! Fanatical Firebrand is one I've considered in place of Rigging Runner, and it's definitely better than the runner on turn 1, but every turn after that it's significantly worse due to it's inability to crew Fell Flagship. If I need to lower the mana curve later, it's definitely the first card I would add. Lightning-Rig Crew is an interesting card, but I think it's a bit slow for this deck. It would probably feel more at-home in an Izzet or Grixis tempo list, but if Goblin Chainwhirler starts dropping in play and token strategies start to come back, I can see it being an excellent sideboard option.

I just won an FNM with a Keld Goblins (8 Whack based) deck ;)

I'm not completely sold on the Fanatical Firebrand. I think Foundry Street Denizen works better, and Mogg War Marshal over Burning-Tree Emissary.

Also, been a fan of your videos and particular narrative since the beginning :D

Check out my deck: Keld Goblins

looks fun! id consider Fanatical Firebrand and Lightning-Rig Crew which are really strong in a pirate deck
