TheMadRocketeer thank you so much for your answer, but I think that you don't get the point of the deck. In most cases I never attack with my creatures, almost all the damage is dealt by Impact Tremors or Boggart Shenanigans. Let's suppose a good hand: T1: play mountain, exile Simian Spirit Guide and cast impact tremors T2: play mountain, cast Skirk Prospector and Goblin Arsonist - 2 damage T3: play mountain, cast Boggart Shenanigans T4: play mountain,cast Dragon Fodder and sacrifice the tokens with the prospector, so you have 2 mana and 4 damage to the opponent, cast Hordeling Outburst and repeat (other 6 damages and 3 mana), tap the last mountain and use the mana to cast Empty the Warrens, cloned 3 times (6 goblins--> 12 damages and 6 mana) ==> good game
That's why I don't need creatures that pump my goblins, because they are constantly sacrificed somehow and never attacks
Foundry Street Denizen actually can be lethal in this deck, thanks for the advice

This looks identical to my old list. I’ve moved away from roast in favor of Harvest Pyre because instant speed is so nice against reality smasher. A fourth remand is a must instead of the second logic knot, especially if you’re going with pyre, as four delve effects are tough to use consistently.
You mention you want to beat Jund. If that’s the case, I can’t recommend Vedalken Shackles enough. Counterflux is too narrow, so I’d recommend that to cut. Storm is probably bringing in empty the warrens anyways, which staticaster handles amazingly. Flux isn’t good enough for bloodbraid, especially on the draw. Shackles takes their great creatures and manlands and turns it against them. Force them to use their removal on their own creatures.

Ok so currently I am running
3x Forked Bolt
I played a tournament last Saturday, did bad the first round against RG Eldrazi (didn't see that one coming!) from one of my friends. Any suggestions to beat that?

Hi! The deck looks nice.
I'd suggest you Logic Knot as a better Mana Leak. May be swap all them or two (because it may sometimes be awkward that it needs TWO blue rather than ONE as Leak does, but overall it's better than Leak). And may be even one Remand, but it's very good in decks that just want to kill opponent very fast, so it may act like an actual Counterspell with upside(or just a two-mana Cryptic Command "counter, draw"=) ).
One Burst Lightning is fine. I think 3 is too much. May be swap two/one for third Electrolyze and/or Forked Bolts?
Also Boomerang is a consideration because it bounces lands!
If Fetchs+schocks are too costly for you then mana base looks ok. But if you can afford them better swap 4 Shivan Reefs and some of Spirebluff Canal and Wandering Fumaroles for 4 Scalding Tarn 2-4 Steam Vents and possibly some other fetches like Polluted Delta and Flooded Strand (because they are the cheapest blue-ish fetches). And if you'll go for fetch+shock package you possibly even can go to 19 lands with so much cantrips and such low curve!

My R/G Eldrazi Deck is a build I am trying to duplicate from Grzegorz Kowalski's deck that recently won a GP. Today, I watched a deck video by Gaby Spartz that uses Bloodbraid Elf in the deck. This got me to think that it could be a good card to run for obvious speed and free card reasons. After watching her video, there was really only one instance where BBE helped her out and that was in game 1 where she got a Dismemeber to clear the only blocker her opponent had. Other times it seemed like it was more appropriate for her to play a Thought-Knot Seer or Reality Smasher rather than spin the wheel with BBE. It also seemed like her deck lacked a high end threat such as Endbringer as my deck and Kowalski's deck runs. There are limited videos and deck references for the type of build because most Eldrazi decks are based on a Tron build.
So my question is this. Is the power of BBE being overshadowed by bad match-ups, or is this just a bad deck build to use the card in? My best threats such as TKS, Smasher, and Endbringer cannot be played off of the cascade effect, but it hitting an Eldrazi Obligator would be nice for a pair of haste creatures. I would love to play BBE, but I do not want to plug it into a deck that does not need it just for the sake of playing it.
So I can try Spatz's build and take out the Scavenging Oozes for BBE, or I thought about -1 Oooze and -1 Forked Bolt for +2 BBE. I have not played at an FMN since the unbanning announcements so I am not sure how much Jace and U/W control dominates my local meta. I do know that Lingering Souls would make an appearance a lot so the Bolt is helpful with taking out the tokens. Please let me know what you all think about the situation. I am hoping to get this ironed out so I can take this deck to FMN this week. Thanks
