Also the duel decks aren’t legal in Modern as well if that too matters. You will have to cut the Misdirection from the merfolk deck and the Gempalm Incinerator from the Goblins deck.

Thanks for the suggestions.

I should also like to mention that the deck should probably be considered a "budget" deck -- I actually try to keep most around $125, which allows for a few really strong cards, but the rest have to be cheap and synergistic. This means that things like Cavern of Souls, Blood Moon, Braid of Fire, Mana Echoes, Shared Animosity, etc. are not really options, unless I already own them.

Second, given that this 1v1 the overall CMC (currently 2.75) needs to stay low. So, I'm trying not to include anything over a four-drop, unless it has great synergy (e.g. Kindred Charge or Berserkers' Onslaught) or can be considered a win-con (e.g. Burn at the Stake).

On that note, I've already included a number of the cards that you suggest, including Kindred Charge, Caterwauling Boggart, and Gempalm Incinerator.

All that being said, if you could give me an idea of which cards, out of those suggested, you think are strictly better than cards already included, then I could get a better idea of which possible changes to make. Again, thanks for the suggestions.

Gempalm Incinerator is a must for wort since it's a draw/removal engine you can get back every turn.

Mogg War Marshal is also usually a better Dragon Fodder since you can recur it every turn.

Why Manic Vandal over Tuktuk Scrapper? I see it is 1 CMC less, but if you ran 4x Goblin Warchief like most legacy decks you could easily drop for 1-3 mana in most games, or just Vial it in. Plus, it won't go to the bottom of your deck with a ringleader drop pull.

Krenko, Mob Boss is a 1x staple for most decks now.

You don't see many decks in this format running Warren Instigator since it an RR and there are much rougher choices for a 2 drop for goblins I think like Mogg War Marshal, or obviously Goblin Piledriver.

I think Grenzo, Dungeon Warden is a bit slow, but Grenzo, Havoc Raiser as a 1x will start popping up in legacy decklists soon.

I agree with the above comment that Goblin Grenade is not good in legacy. I do however, think a 1x Legion Loyalist is worth it to give your other goblins great buffs as a 1 drop, especially piledrivers.

Boggart Mob can get pretty out of control and lets you retrigger matrons and ringleaders with a sac mechanism like Goblin Sledder or as most decks run, 1x Skirk Prospector. This isn't a popular choice, but worth considering. I run it in my RB goblin deck, but thats for casual. The champion effect of Lightning Crafter has the same retrigger potential.

Frogtosser Banneret could help you reduce costs of some of your goblins just like a Goblin Warchief, but you have neither. I think these are important for tribal goblins (most run warchief over frogtosser for the haste/monored).

1-2x Ancient Tomb seems to have dropped off most top8 decklists, but I like running 2 in mine. I run Food Chain Goblins and dirty kitty though, so my mechanic is different (and more vulnerable, but faster) than vial gobs.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker is nuts.

Consider Terminate or Gempalm Incinerator or Tragic Slip even for removal.

As for the sideboard, many people like running Krosan Grip if they splash with green. Also consider Thoughtseize. I also think that Blood Moon like stated above is great for MONORED in the sideboard if you choose to drop black. I think a 1x Goblin King is nice in the sideboard as well. Red Elemental Blast might help in the side as well.

@shrapnel_: Grenzo, Dungeon Warden is fantastic when your hand is empty but have multiple Aether Vials, Rishadan Ports, etc. You end up with a lot of extra mana, but not anything to do with it. Even planting him on turn 2, he still flips every goblin in the deck except Krenko, Mob Boss and Earwig Squad. He's more of a mana spell that puts the bottom goblin of your deck into play.

I used to have the Lightning Crafter combo in here, but took it out because it gets clunky if you don't have anything in play or a critter you want to stay.

I diddn't know Grenzo, Havoc Raiser was a card. I'll have to look into getting one!

Gempalm Incinerator is in because it's uncounterable removal. It's really important versus Delver of Secrets, especially on turn 2 when they'll block your Goblin Lackey.

Grenzo, Dungeon Warden kind of seems like a slow gamble for the format.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker+Lightning Crafter+Skirk Prospector=infinite damage combo.

I think that Legion Loyalist could be a good 1x for you (maybe replace a Skirk Prospector? Give those Goblin Piledrivers trample and stop chump blocks.

Grenzo, Havoc Raiser is worth considering imo. I think 1x of him will start popping up in legacy decks.

I like and run 2x Ancient Tomb, but people who play gobs have mixed feelings about them.

Boseiju, Who Shelters All?

Boggart Mob can get pretty out of control with Krenko, Mob Boss and the champion effect lets you retrigger a creature like Goblin Matron or Goblin Ringleader. Same with Lightning Crafter.

Sparksmith used to be popular for larger removal, but he hurts like hell. Might save you against reanimator decks and the like since you get more than one use out of him, unlike Gempalm Incinerator.Looks like fun!
