Maybe replace Fodder Launch with Goblin Grenade which is much faster.

Amun, this looks better, still... I'd suggest:

  1. -4 Workshop Assistant & +4 Myr Retriever
  2. -2 Fodder Launch & +2 Dismember
  3. -3 Artillerize & + 1x Pia's Revolution + 2x Salvage Titan
  4. -5 Swamp, -3 Dragonskull Summit + 4x Signal Pest +4 Mountain

As I said earlier your deck can be mono-red and with your reduced mana curve you don't need 22 land, I'd probably play 18, but if your uncomfortable then run 20. You want to have 4x of Pia's Revolution, it's the card your deck is built around.

Not much of a modern player, Flooremoji? Vial Smasher the Fierce isn't modern legal, and Fodder Launch... well... you can get a Goblin Grenade at a much better mana cost. Mad Auntie might be ok, but she's missing a rather important keyword that Goblin Chieftain has: haste.

I personally like black for goblins because you can use Mad Auntie, Fodder Launch, and Vial Smasher the Fierce.

Looks pretty cool. If you are trying to maintain a lower budget but love the goblins rakdos goblins are pretty good get things like Warren Weirding Fodder Launch Frogtosser Banneret Spike Jester and many many more, look into if you thinj you might like it. Apostle's Blessing might be a solid sideboard card, and I dont know for sure but Infernal Plunge seems like a good fit in here. 2 last things, Tarfire Boggart Shenanigans are both good too.

Hi Antennae I like waht you're doing here, I've been wanting to make a similar goblin deck in mono red, two cards I can suggest might be Mudbutton Torchrunner and Fodder Launch. also Diabolic Edict is not modern legal, maybe try a Geth's Verdict instead?

@shrapnel: food chain goblins is not as good as any other combo deck as it cannot win within a reasonabe amount of time. Ancient Tomb is risky as it does not allow turn 1 Goblin Lackey, and functions the same if playing for turn 1 Aether Vial. No need to run Frogtosser Banneret if you have 4 warchiefs. Goblin Tunneler is cute, winmore, slow, and not needed (cannot be used on turn 2 make lackey unblockable). Fodder Launch < Dismember, both are uneeded.

While vial is a turn slower, it makes your goblins "not Force of Will targets", which is key.

I agree with your comment about wort.

Looks like a fun deck! I play legacy goblins as well. It is pretty rare to see the black splash since many of the black cards for goblins aren't as good as the monoreds. I highly suggest since you are running vial to check out food chain goblins and dirty kitty as well for ideas. Food chain is insane in a goblin deck (much more explosive and reliable than vial imo) and dirty kitty is basically an all in red version of goblins and is a blast to play. A few cards to look into:

Food Chain

Mentioned above. Food chain decks run this + Lightning Crafter + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker for an infinite damage combo that you can get out pretty consistently turn 5, which puts your opponent on a clock.

Ancient Tomb

Crazy good land for goblins, most people run 2-3

Frogtosser Banneret

You don't see these a lot, but dropping a few in with your warchiefs gives some intense cost reductions

Goblin Tunneler

You rarely see these in legacy gobs as well but I think this is an underrated card. Will usually come out for R and let lackeys/piledrivers go through chump blockers. You can drop it on a piledriver before they get their passive buff and he is still unblockable.

In general I would say you should also consider dropping a single Tarfire for a Fodder Launch. Wort, Boggart Auntie is also kind of slow for the format. Looks like fun though. Remember for goblins any non-goblin card hurts your synergy. Looks like a fun deck. I used to play vial, but I think it is too slow for legacy and switched to dirty kitty/food chain.
