Disfigure on [Help Wanted] Modern Goblins

cut back on some of your higher cost spells because goblins are for aggro. Goblin Bushwhacker, Mogg War Marshal, Foundry Street Denizen are good.

Max lands at 19

Cut everything that costs more than 4 cmc.

Run 4 Lightning Bolt, 4 Goblin Grenade and 4 Dragon Fodder.

Then you want:

4x Goblin Guide, 4 Foundry Street Denizen, 4 Mogg Fanatic, 4 Goblin Bushwhacker

4 Mogg War Marshal, 2 Goblin Wardriver

4 Goblin Chieftain

You have space for a few more.

TheDuggernaught on Naya allies

Sorry I could not reply earlier. It was finals week for my grad program, so I had a lot of final projects to finish up.

I love Champion of Lambholt. I wrecked so many people with it when I first started playing, but I do not think it is a super amazing card in modern. There are just too many ways to kill it before it makes any meaningful impact on the game... unlike Kabira Evangel who gives protections and +1/+1 counters on ETB.

What I see right now is a very aggro ally shell that is a little bit on the diluted side. I know you want to have the ability to play mid range if you need to, but I feel that is tough with allies since in order to match up with other mid range creatures, you either need to play creatures early and help them survive and get enough +1/+1 counters on them to efficiently trade with things later on, or just play more removal so your allies do not even have to trade. Allies do not really have big mind range beat sticks that enter play as big huge beat sticks. The closest thing we have is Talus Paladin and Kazuul Warlord. Neither of which are "OMG RITO PLZ NERF OP" or can trade with a siege rhino or othe rmid range staple right away. But anyways, by wanting to play cool mid-rangy-ish creatures, you slow down your aggro game; which might be why you be struggling vs pure aggro and combo decks.

As such, I would suggest cutting the 3 Champion of Lambholts, and 1 Dromoka's Command, 1 Collected Company. I would add 1 Path to Exile, 2 Goblin Bushwhackers, 1 Kabira Evangel, and 1 Talus Paladin. I would love to, as FAMOUSWATERMELON said, add in some Lightning Bolts or Lightning Helixes. But I do not think there is room with the AEther Vials, Collected Companys, and Hardened Scales. If you wanted to remove a part of that package (of which, I feel the weakest link is the scales), then you might have room. I would suggest testing the deck with and without scales to see how it runs.

You'll definitely want the curve to be lower if you want to compete with fast combo decks like Jeskai Ascendancy and mid range decks like Junk or Collected Company + Melira, Sylvok Outcast. I'd suggest to remove some combination of Krenko, Mob Bosses, Goblin Rabblemasters, Hellriders, Shared Animosity and Goblin King/Chieftans. They're all valid cards, but you don't need thirteen 3/4 CMC bombs. I'd suggest to take out at least four of these win cons and replace them with Goblin Bushwhackers. They are absolutely brutal if you have a few creatures out already and you kick them, and they are very cheap. Also, Goblin Guide is a definite four-of. A lot of other goblin players that I've talked to dislike the goblin token cards like Hordeling Outburst and Dragon Fodder. They're just a little bit too slow since they can't have an impact until at LEAST turn 3.

I don't mean to say my way is the only way, but here's a few of my favorite cards that I would use instead of your 3/4 drops. Take them or leave them, this is just food for thought: Goblin Bushwhacker, Spike Jester, Signal Pest, and Tattermunge Maniac.

TheDuggernaugh; Ranger of Eos is better off in other decks; the only 1 cmc drop here is not justified to play with ranger of Eos. Also, he doesn't give any trigger boost to the allies.

Goblin Bushwhacker is also redundant for the same reason. He may be a psuedo-Akoum Battlesinger, but I rather have another Akoum Battlesinger or ally. Note that all allies trigger each other.. so I other non-allies in the deck are near redundant.

I would agree that Collected Company is probably better than Join the Ranks. But, effectively, they do the same thing in the same deck; one being having actual non-token creatures and another just tokens to give the ETB trigger.
