Foundry Street Denizen Discussion
1 day ago
Thanks for the advice, I recognize I need more cheap goblins and ways to produce tokens, and as you say the first 2 turns are difficult right now. Foundry Street Denizen would be a nice addition and I already have a set of Goblin Instigator. I'll take what you said in consideration and work on the mana curve.
I was trying something different but it doesn't work as expected to be honest, mainly because I fail to produce enough goblins in the first turns.
Boggart Shenanigans is useful but not enough to keep 4 of them, I might bring it down to 2 copies.
Thanks again !

The best way to get this working well is to remember your curve and gameplan- without the stabilisation tools that most other tribes enjoy, goblins will usually try and race the opponent, finishing out with grenade and lightning bolt. Its tried, tested, and enough cards have been printed to support that plan that it runs smoothly.
Running matsterwork into Thud as extra goblin grenades is a strong option- no problems with that- it just needs a stronger creature plan to support it.
You really only have 4 1-drops maindeck (the firebrands) so turn 1 plays will be awkward- wardriver and fodder are decent 2 drops, but most of your creatures start the 'go wide' plan in the 3-5 drops slots, and only have haste by virtue of Goblin Warchief. This is gonna be awkward, because this is usually the point where the board gets reset by a Damnation or Sweltering Suns. You should look at masterwork into thud as a 4 drop too, as it really needs your creatures on the board to function.
I'd look at doing the traditional goblin thing and dropping your curve, focussing in on Foundry Street Denizen, Mogg War Marshal, Goblin Instigator into Goblin Chieftain. This will give you a lot more early game damage, and help immensely with consistancy.

This is a surprisingly decent list- but the big thing for budget lists at FNM- SIDEBOARD.
You don't have to grab staple sideboard tools- the more budget your list, the more powerful a transformative sideboard becomes. Changing from red devotion where you want Leyline of Sanctity asap to a Raid Bombardment/Mogg War Marshal tokens list is very powerful, and the flexibility of just saying 'oh, I'll run these 15 cards instead of (all my spells, all my creatures, half of each) is strong.
It also lets you plan out sideboard tools so that some can sit mainboard- Ash Zealot and Harsh Mentor provide seven slots mainboard that can be smoothly swapped for more spells, more creatures, different hate depending on what you need, and planning that out can have immense benifits.
There are lots of options- and finding cards that can flex into a second list with 15 swaps is suprisingly a lot simpler than it seems- just look for cards that are hit hard by spells your opponent will sideboard out so you can swap them in. eg; they ditch their high CMC answers/enchantment removal for more road blocks while you swap to a Goblin Assault/Curse of Stalked Prey list.
Good luck, and happy brewing.

Burn at the Stake: Great win condition for decks where you have boatloads of creatures.
Blasphemous Act: Boardwipe for if things get out of hand.
Goblin Recruiter: Great tutor for goblin decks.
Coat of Arms: Turns all of your goblins into very large creatures that usually wins the game unless someone deals with it the turn you play it.
Shared Animosity: Another great way to win games.
Vanquisher's Banner: Lord effect for your goblins and a card draw engine. Definitely a plus.
Chaos Warp: Arguably the best red single-target removal spell in the game.
Hammer of Purphoros: Haste enabler, and allows you to do something with the extra mountains you no longer need during late game.
Goblin War Strike: Win condition for some games.
Ogre Battledriver: Haste enabler that also buffs your creatures.
Battle Squadron/Reckless One: Another win condition. While the haste on Reckless One is nice, I would recommend Battle Squadron due to the deck not having any other answers to flying creatures besides burn spells, and it'll likely have haste anyway from the many other haste enablers you have in the deck.
Massive Raid: Targeted creature or player removal.
Reverberate: Used to copy someone's win condition, or copy an opponents counterspell to counter their counter. All-around great card, very versatile.
Mogg War Marshal: Not a bad card, but you already get a bunch of 1/1's from Krenko. There are just better cards to have in your deck.
Beetleback Chief: Same reason as Mogg War Marshal.
Grenzo, Havoc Raiser: Doesn't really synergise with what the rest of the deck is supposed to do.
Sparksmith: This is a fun card for obvious reasons, but will also likely get you killed.
Buried Ruin: You don't have enough important artifacts for this to be necessary.
Hellraiser Goblin: There are better haste enablers without the drawback of forcing you to attack.
Coldsteel Heart: Goblins don't really cost a lot of mana, so you likely won't need the ramp. That, and this is pretty slow as far as ramp goes.
Goblin Chainwhirler: This is a terrific card in standard, but not neraly as much in EDH. Unless your playgroup meta has a lot of creatures with one toughness, this card isn't going to do much.
Snow-Covered Mountain: Is there a reason you're running these over regular Mountains? If not, the hefty price tag on these lands is why I'd choose to stay away from these. Edit: I just saw Scrying Sheets. If this is your only reason for snow lands, I don't think it's really necessary.
Mutavault: While this does help somewhat, it's not by that much. It doesn't help your deck enough to be worth the $12 price tag.
Squee, Goblin Nabob: Unless you play against a lot of discard-oriented decks, this doesn't do a lot to help you.
Red Elemental Blast/Pyroblast: Unless you play against a lot of blue counterspells, I would drop this for some better components. There's a specific card later on I wold replace this with anyway if you're having issues with your stuff getting countered.
Commander's Sphere: While the ramp and card draw is nice, you don't really need it. Your goblins don't cost a lot, and the card draw is pretty minimal.
Foundry Street Denizen: This would be an extremely good card if it had trample. Unfortunately, the lack of trample, and the rather low toughness of 1 means it will likely just get trump blocked by some tiny creature your opponents control and die.

Yeah, it's an all-in deck and it flat out loses if you haven't won by turn 4. :)
Goblin Heelcutter is a weaker card in many matches, but when it shines, it's fantastic. I haven't got any Goblin Chainwhirlers for the deck yet, so that's why it's left out and the reason I choose Mogg War Marshal over Burning-Tree Emissary is the synergy with Foundry Street Denizen, where the marshal gives an additional trigger the turn after it comes into play. It's also better against a sweeper if you pay the echo cost.
So far, I've won 2 FNMs with this build :)

Devastating Summons is also a good finisher. Sometimes you just get the nuts where you curve out, dump your entire hand into play, then make a couple of 4/4s or bigger.
Searing Blaze is another good option, but you may have problems without having fetchlands. However, the reward of it may outweigh the cons of sometimes only having it deal 1 damage. Cutting 2 copies of The Flame of Keld and adding 2 Searing Blaze may give you a good balance.
Since you are playing on a budget, there's a couple of other options to play Burn. You can go goblin-heavy, with more of an 8-Whack build (Reckless Bushwhacker, Goblin Bushwhacker) and also play Goblin Grenade.
One of my friends did a lot of grinding to earn packs/store credit to upgrade his Burn deck over time. I think he also was using Brute Force, Rubblebelt Maaka, Titan's Strength, and heroic cards for a while too.

Bracothegazer, I guess I was trying to offer ideas not only for the clear direction of this deck but also for alternative plans for when Plan A's critical cards are hiding or get Disenchanted or fall to Tranquility, etc. Depending on the directions or directions desired, some ideas will apply and others will not. No successful deck could use them all, as that would dilute the themes enough that none of them would work well. I do get, and really like, the direction you chose. One thing I did totally miss is the number of sacrifice cards you have for making Boggart Shenanigans work on your own terms. Saw the Grenades but missed the Prospectors and the Commander. My Casual Goblin deck runs Goblin Bombardment to sacrifice creatures for direct damage.
So, sticking strictly to the no-swinging theme, I'd drop the Goblin Arsonists and maybe Empty the Warrens and keep/add the most efficient token-makers. Your Mogg War Marshals are the best of this bunch (3 ETB triggers for 2 CMC), especially if you can sacrifice the original for value on the turn he's cast, rather than letting the Echo replace him. It's a shame that Skullclamp isn't Modern-legal, as it would be fantastic to swap for one or two of the sacrifice outlets.
Foundry Street Denizen would be mostly a Plan B card for this theme, though a very good one, unless you toss in stuff like Fling or Soul's Fire, which I wouldn't recommend, as the odds of drawing the right combination of cards at the right time is too low. If you want to do this as a small inclusion for a swigning Plan B, Goblin Bushwhacker will actually do more for you than the Denizen in most cases. It's that good, and the Haste makes a nasty surprise for the opponent when you need it.
