(shaman, shaman, shaman)

I hope you like shaman too

As an avid edh Wort, the Raidmother featuring the combo Of Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, and Lightning Crafter and shaman stuff, I like jund/gruul as much as i love grixis, always looking for new ways to play the colors in modern and edh, this deck gets my vote

Its subtly powerful and original, and well built

In the event blue is a threat in modern again,id recommend 1 or 2 Vexing Shusher to counterproof spells, also Burning-Tree Shaman could see sideboard play

Maybe Crimson Mage, Firedrinker Satyr, Fulminator Mage, Goblin Arsonist, Oracle of Mul Daya, Rattleclaw Mystic, Thrun, the Last Troll, Thermo-Alchemist, or Stonewright?

My first modern brew was red goblins, and if you ever get enough store credit to buy a few, id recommend 2-3 Cavern of Souls mainboard for another Stomping Ground type of land that hoses blue

Besides other non budget things such as Wooded Foothills and Aether Vial cant think of anything else,

You're welcome. Sadly I have not had much lucky with ramping with red unless I am using Geosurge, Pyretic Ritual, Seething Song, or Infernal Plunge. I like to combo the plunge Goblin Arsonist to poke some damage then combo into the other spells. There has been a few times I had a chain combo and brought out a Balefire Dragon in turn one. Don't bank on that luck being a sole win condition.

Sweepea38 I'm not a fan of Mogg Fanatic, or Goblin Arsonist. Hordeling Outburst will most likely replace Goblin Rally.

For Frenzied Goblin, can you cast the block cost multiple times to block multiple targets?

RamenNoodles I learned playing MTG as a mono red gobbos player, and those were some of the first cards in my first decks.

I have a few other good suggestions but you should decide if you want them or not, and if so what to replace them with.

  1. Reckless Bushwhacker and/or Goblin Bushwhacker are both great cards. Pump up the team, haste, and over all value.

  2. Mogg Fanatic and/or Goblin Arsonist are really good since even if your opponents remove them, you can use them to ping their face, or even destroy their pesky utility creatures.Mogg Fanatic has straight up won me certain infect matchups due to being able to kill the majority of their creature base before being able to buff it up. And Goblin Arsonist synergizes with Goblin Grenade, letting you essentially hit them for 6 instead of 5.

  3. Mogg War Marshal and/or Hordeling Outburst and/or Dragon Fodder Are incredibly great token producers. Hordeling Outburst is actually better then Goblin Rally most of the time, since you're going to want to play most of your deck out of 3-4 lands.

And last but not least, is one of my favorites...

  1. Frenzied Goblin. This goblin card alone has won me so many matchups, since sure you're not getting rid of their creature, but you have a constant Blinding Flare which will make your enemies Panic.

PPS: Goblin Arsonist has the added benefit of being great with Goblin Grenade, compared to the Fanatic.

Looks super fun!

Quick thought on the Beastmaster Ascension suggestion: I use it on my Saproling deck and it's usually quite effective. Thing is, I never cast it T3 - it usually comes out as a finisher on turn 5 or 6 when I already have 7+ creatures ready to attack, not giving the opponent a chance to prepare against it (because as you said, having it sitting there one or more turns without it doing anything is pretty bad!). Whether or not to run it ultimately comes down to how often you find yourself with 7+ creatures already in play, and whether or not at that point the added 28 points of damage would help you win the game or be redundant.

PS: Personally, I like Goblin Arsonist more than Mogg Fanatic, but both have their uses. Perhaps try out a split and see which one you're getting the most out of?

Thank you JrsJams! Goblin Arsonist was just one of the original goblins I had to build the deck around. I'll definitely swap them out for the Mogg Fanatic!

Mogg Fanatic is just a better Goblin Arsonist because you can sacrifice it at instant speed instead of having to wait for it to die, so if an enemy creature has life link you can sacrifice it before combat damage and they won't gain any life.
