TheMadRocketeer on It's Raining Goblins, Hallelujah

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.

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

Tormenting Voice is for late game dead draws, like lands or Simian Spirit Guide

Foundry Street Denizen actually can be lethal in this deck, thanks for the advice

Your mileage may vary, but if it were my deck, I'd consider the following changes. Mainly a bunch of ideas to shop from, depending on how much you want to lean on Impact Tremors as your main/sole strategy


  • Foundry Street Denizen - Super for a deck that's going to make Goblins in batches
  • Krenko's Command - Good value for the CMC. If you want lots of Tremors triggers, 4 Dragon Fodder may not be enough.
  • Goblin Instigator - Good value
  • Lightning Bolt - Good in any red deck. So versatile.
  • Maybe Add or Sideboard:

  • Goblin Bushwhacker - If you want to be able to flip into swinging mode
  • Reckless Bushwhacker - The other Bushwhacker; almost as good.
  • Quest for the Goblin Lord - Great in a token deck if you want to swing with them.
  • Goblin Piledriver - If you want a huge Goblin to swing
  • Throne of the God-Pharaoh - Extra damage from swinging. The more the merrier.
  • Shared Animosity - If you're swinging enough Goblins, this can just go nuts.
  • Keep:

  • Mogg War Marshal - 3 Tremors activations for 2 CMC
  • Goblin Grenade - Best card ever for Goblins
  • Dragon Fodder - Good value for making Goblin tokens
  • Hordeling Outburst - Good mana value and fine card efficiency
  • Drop:

  • Empty the Warrens - Too inefficient - 4 CMC for 2 tokens
  • Goblin Arsonist - yeah, they combo with the Grenades, but there are just better choices overall.
  • Boggart Shenanigans - Maybe in the sideboard in case you are facing sweepers. Maybe. There are better options, though. If you need that kind of option, I'd suggest Goblin Bombardment instead, as you're not dependent on the opponent's timing, it's cheaper, it can target creatures, and you can use it for a finisher.
  • Maybe Drop:

  • Tormenting Voice - Costs 2 cards and 2 mana to get 2 cards. Just play more cheap token cards. If you need them in order to be sure of getting get your Impact Tremors, though, leave then in.
  • Take a look at my latest Goblin deck if you want. I didn't feature Impact Tremors, though I do run it, and it does fine work indeed. My deck is called What do you call that? A Goblipede?

    I know it was mentioned once before, but if you want pure aggro, I'd suggest 8-Whack. Extremely cheap mana base (many many Mountains) along with all the fun goblins! Goblin Guide isn't super expensive and neither is Legion Loyalist. I'm almost certain those are the most expensive cards in the deck.

    Plus, you get to play sweet cards like Goblin Grenade and Foundry Street Denizen which are always a blast!!!

    Even if you need to buy all 60 cards for the main, it'll still be probably be about half the cost, if not less, the mana requirement for zoo.

    Austin_Smith_of_Cards: Sorry for not responding for so long. If I'm not currently playing the deck, it kinda gets lost in the shuffle, pun unintended--or unpuntended.

    Anyway, I like Gavony Unhallowed. I considered Foundry Street Denizen for a bit, but I like your idea better because of the permanence of it. Thanks!

    I feel like this deck is trying to be mid-rangey, which is totally fine, but Foundry Street Denizen doesn't exactly fit into mid-range goblins. The same could almost be said for Goblin Piledriver.

    Frenzied Goblin, and Intimidator Initiate would increase the chance that your Goblins will survive an attack.

    Goblin Bushwhacker, Legion Loyalist, Goblin Wardriver, Mogg War Marshal, and Warren Instigator would all help ramp up your damage.

    Mardu Scout gives you a repeated creature EOTB trigger. Can be quite valuable with a Soul Warden in play.

    I'd highly suggest adding Impact Tremors, to give you more EOTB utility with your mass of tokens. Purphoros, God of the Forge is another option for that affect.

    Also, this is not a deck where it's possible to run 12 lands. You'll want to run 18 at a minimum if you're playing a 4 cost spell. Every hand won't have Skirk Prospector, and Skirk Prospector is only good if you've got enough mana to play your token generators.

    Deck looks real fun, but it needs to decide between aggro and mid-range. You definitely need to up the land count, as Skirk Prospector doesn't cut it as a land replacement.

    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
