I think Goblin Guide is a little bit out of my price range unfortunately. I do own a copy of Goblin Chieftain, and might pick up a second to add in. Goblin King looks really good too, haven't seen that card before. I'm going to try and fit them in now, thanks for the feedback!

I recommend that you find a place for Goblin King and for Goblin Chieftain as these lord are quite synergistic with the go wide strategy. also, i would recommend adding 4x Goblin Guide as it is by far one of the best aggro creatures in the game (although it is a bit pricey these days)

I feels a lot like a mono-red deck that just happens to contain a lot of goblins.

I think you are lacking in tribal support.

Goblin Grenade, Goblin Chieftain, Goblin Piledriver and Goblin Rabblemaster could be great additions

You should consider Goblin Chieftain, it lets your Krenko use his ability on the turn you play him AND lets the goblins you created attack that turn. Seeing as none of your creatures have haste, he makes every card you have besides lighting bolt stronger by having him.

Play cards that synergizes well with goblins, like Goblin Grenade. Goblin lords like Goblin Chieftain or Goblin King can easily turn a game in your favor. I'll get back to you soon with more cards.

Hexaflexagon Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician was only put in to see how long it took for someone to recommend the obviously better 4 drop and If i end up adding a lord it will probably be Goblin Chieftain as it costs less and the haste is more valuable than artifact removal esspecially in game 1

Good catch, I definitely meant Raid Bombardment and not Shared Animosity.

They tie closely together because they go on the stack at the same time, so as long as a Goblin is a 2/2 or less before attackers are declared, it doesn't matter if you attack with 20 Goblins and each one is a 21/2 because of Shared Animosity, Raid Bombardment still procs as well because at the time the trigger resolves Shared Animosity hadn't. To make sure I hit the hardest I can, I have sometimes sacrificed a Goblin Chieftain or a Goblin King to make sure Bombardment gets to proc. Even if I get chump blocked or fogged I still get a lot of damage through. The fact that we get another lord, and he can sacrifice himself to himself to make sure I get under the threshold for Raid Bombardment is fantastic. I still can't get over how good these two new Goblins are!

Unfortunately I don't have any recordings of this in action, although I've always wanted to get it going on MTGO. I do have a GoPro though, so maybe I can convince some of my friends to play a game with me.
