Oloro_Magic on White and Red Burn Goblin

So first off add a mana base, it is the single most important piece of any deck; second move the deck to modern; goblins are better suited in the modern meta. If you are playing Goblins then a lot of the creatures you have are not necessary; generally you want the following goblins:

The rest is really up to you. Warren Instigator is great if you have goblins to cheat out. Goblin Chieftain should be your lord of choice. You may want to include Burning-Tree Emissary to chain a bunch of goblins in one turn and then buff them with Reckless Bushwhacker. Other options are to use snow lands and add Skred; Voracious Dragon is generally just a win-con, same goes for Predator Dragon, and from there you either round out the deck with other support goblins or even burn cards that can serve as removal and extra damage. Generally this deck is either or but I like the idea of for some of the better burn spells like Lightning Helix and Boros Charm.

Are you aware I said that the point of the previous comment was for players considering madness cards? I mentioned the interaction with a discarding effect and madness because many players are unaware that madness allows non instant cards to be cast at instant speed. You have satiated my curiosity for the lack of madness and as I said I get it. I made very clear my comment was for players considering madness and you felt the need to explain your choices further. In a more recent standard example of christmas land that actually was very competitive: turn 1 Kessig Prowler  Flip turn 2 Voltaic Brawler swing 2 turn 3 Scythe Leopard lay a land Goblin Bushwhacker swing for 13. Now i realize that this wasnt the whole deck but red green energy did ok for its time and is all still standard legal. I am going to assume that since this typed we both think the other is speaking in a condescending tone. I was not and am not now, I will no longer comment on this deck. Good day

The curve feels a little high- I'd consider cutting Secure the Wastes for something like Brighthearth Banneret, Foundry Street Denizen or Goblin Bushwhacker. Since this appears to be human warrior tribal in boros, Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant are worth a look.

xyr0s on how many goblins?

at 19 lands, don't play cards that cost 4 or more mana. You run too much of a risk of them simply cluttering your hand, while you wait for lands. Keep goblins cheap. Cards to remove:

  • Raid Bombardment. when will you play this? turn 3, and attack with the 2 goblins you at best have in play by then? It's a card that doesn't do anything on its own, but eats up all the mana of the early turns, where I assume you want to win (midrange goblins doesn't sound really right).

  • Guttersnipe again a 3 cmc card that doesn't do anything on its own.

  • Mardu Scout Yes, it combos well with Quest for the Goblin Lord, but then, so does playing dragonfodder. But dash is not a very great ability in a deck, that plays early game aggro, due to mana limitations.

  • Ankle Shanker, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, and Descent of the Dragons. These are not belonging in a 19 land deck. Loosely calculated, you'll have to dig 18 cards into your library to come by 6 lands, and since you don't draw extra cards, or ramp lands, that means average turn 11 to play a 6 cmc spell (and turn 8 or 9 for a 5 cmc spell). Goblin Dark-Dwellers I don't really know about, perhaps a 4/4 creature followed by a dragon fodder is an ok turn 8 play (but I doubt it).

  • Trumpet Blast doesn't do enough on its own to be a 4-of. A 1-of is more like the correct number i think - enough that occasionally you play it, and it ends the game, but you won't have to sit and wait for more creatures with two of these in hand.

  • lands that enter the battlefield tapped. They are not worth the trouble, mostly. Get the check-lands, and the shadowlands, and otherwise stick with basics. Currently just about half your lands are tapped, essentially meaning that you are timewalked behind your opponent.

Cards to consider

Foundry Street Denizen. It's a goblin, and it grows by more goblins. It's also a 1-drop, which your deck has very little of.

Goblin Guide. Suggested since you didn't apply the "budget" tag. Best turn 1 goblin in modern.

Goblin Bushwhacker. By kicking it, you get haste and boost your whole team. that's not bad at all, for a deck with 11 token-generating sorceries. I would also sugges Reckless Bushwhacker but your cards are too many intensive to allow you to play a surge-card early on.

And finally Goblin Chieftain. It does cost 3, so... a bit expensive. But haste is relevant for all you tokens, and so is a solid lord-bonus.

and Lightning Bolt. You play red in modern, you bring 4 lightning bolts.

Dragonmaster Outcast and Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip while very good do not belong in this deck really. Cathars' Crusade is also too expensive to be useful, Honor of the Pure would work much better. Anger of the Gods can and should be a sideboard card seing how it hurts you more than any opponent and should only be used if absolutely necessary. Champion of the Parish up to 4 copies is another must if you are sticking with the human theme. As for cards in your maybe board, Iroas, God of Victory could be interesting in this deck, and Metallic Mimic provides a lord card if that is what you want. As for cards you haven't considered, both Goblin Bushwhacker and Reckless Bushwhacker can be finishers in this deck (I personally prefer the latter).

Not sure about Archwing Dragon. It seems to mana intensive to recast it every turn. I use Thunderbreak Regent in Zurgo in Barbados. No haste but even if it is removed it deals 3 damage. I could be wrong. The one hit with Archwing Dragon could be the difference between winning and losing. I like Kari Zev, Skyship Raider Reckless Bushwhacker and Lathnu Hellion and must see if I can include some of them. I don't own a Goblin Bushwhacker but will obtain one if I choose to add the Reckless Bushwhacker.

Foundry Street Denizen/Flameblade Adept/Goblin Bushwhacker/Reckless Bushwhacker/Zurgo Bellstriker? Ash Zealot is ok sideboard, though woe reaper does a lot to fix that. Its an archetype I can see being powerful, I'm just not confident the support is there, or the correct colours with Bramblewood Paragon out there.
