Hey Darrell this is Austin. I haven't really gone through what should replace what but just a list of what to take out and to add in. The cards that are going on the add list should help speed the deck up and cards that should be taken out are either to slow or just not as good as other cards that are on the add list. Now it's your deck so you do what you want, but these cards should help out a lot. Alright here we go.

Take out:1. Akki Drillmaster2. Aligned Hedron Network3. Banefire4. Faithless Looting5. Flameshadow Conjuring6. Frenzied Goblin7. Goblin Assault8. Goblin Bushwhacker9. Goblin Diplomats10.

I think your featured card artwork should be Goblin Diplomats, which is a hilarious card on many levels.

landofMordor on Attack me NOW!!!

So, for starters, I'd definitely take out Akroma's Memorial and either sell that bad boy or put it in literally any creature-focued EDH deck that you have, because all the keywords in the world will still only make your Stuffy Doll a 1/1. I'd also take out Assault Formation, since it only affects 4 of your creatures (and even then, it's negligible gain). Also, I'd nix Crawlspace since it defeats the purpose of Nightly Hunting. Gravity Well is redundant if you draw more than 1, so I'd just keep 2 copies.

To put in: Lust for War, Contaminated Bond, Contaminated Ground, Nettling Curse, Sinister Possession, Visions of Brutality, Goblin Diplomats. I'd put in Jaddi Offshoot or any Black creature with lifelink (Gifted Aetherborn? Vampire Cutthroat?) if you're concerned about Burn. I know your deck doesn't include B, but having those Auras will help you accelerate victory (honestly, you almost could take out all of the G cards in this deck).

Hope this helps! Mention me if I can clarify or otherwise be helpful.

precociousapprentice, absolutely! All of them are playtest based. I can't speak for the new cards yet, except in theory.

I dropped Curse of the Nightly Hunt, Goblin Diplomats, Goblin Racketeer, Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, and Maddening Imp because they weren't as impactful as I'd like.

I dropped Pariah's Shield and Helm of Possession because I rarely had tokens I wanted to use up.

I dropped Darksteel Mutation because it's sorcery speed removal in a deck that wants opponents yo attack each other.

I dropped Aegis of the Gods and True Believer because they didnt ever do anything important when the combo players are likely getting pummeled thanks to my helping out mutual opponents.

I dropped Crumbling Sanctuary since it pillow forts my opponents.

I dropped Sun Droplet since it doesn't trigger in a pillow fort, or it doesn't fort and stop me from dying.

I dropped Volrath's Stronghold since it doesn't add colored mana and has an activated ability I rarely needed.

I added Dolmen Gate, Iroas, God of Victory, and Reconnaissance to protect my attacking creatures.

I added Avatar of Slaughter (previously ignored due to cmc) and Season of the Witch to replace my dropped goading cards.

I added Blood Feud, Furnace of Rath, Dictate of the Twin Gods, and Pain Magnification for additional reasons to make people attack, while also making my opponents worse off.

I added Island Sanctuary since I misread initially, thinking it made a Moat effect. No, it only protects you!

I added Thran Dynamo and Tymna the Weaver back in for another ramp card and draw card respectively.

And then I added a Swamp or so other basic to replace Volrath's Stronghold.

ComboCrazy on Goblin Onslaught!

Pheardemons okay I'll put it back into maybeboard and experiment some more. I discovered that Slobad is actually pretty useful to protect things that I don't want to leave the battlefield

cough cough Platinum Angel cough cough

So I added him back in as well. I cut Goblin Spymaster to get him back since I already have Goblin Diplomats. I took Entrei's suggestion (thank you for that btw, Entrei) and added Warstorm Surge in place of Trash for Treasure. What are your thoughts on that card? It seems like a more expensive version of Impact Tremors to me, since all my stuff is 1/1.

Thanks for the suggestions. For Goblin Ringleader I've tried him before and I don't think he ever really had any use unless I had Goblin Recruiter or some other card that stacked the deck, He would end up being a dead card because I was to afraid to play him thinking that the top 4 cards were the non goblin combo pieces I've been waiting for all game. Unlike Goblin Diplomats (though I do plan on removing diplomats for almost the exact reason as ringleader.) and Foundry Street Denizen who are cheap bodies to block with. So in the end it does end up coming down to the cost and the chances of drawing a combo piece for Goblin Ringleader. And for Siege-Gang Commander I've just never really cared for the card it's been in the deck since day 1 and it's just to expensive, yes 4 chump blockers for the price of.. well 4 chump blockers is nice, though I can do the same with Krenko easily. And the ability is kinda pointless in my opinion especially with how hard it is to get mana in this deck, it really isn't a option. Anyway I can do the same with Goblin Bombardment for free. (I hope that you can find some useful info in all of that nonsense.)

Love the deck!! Plenty of combos in there that can go infinite, and nice amounts of ramp and fetching to make them happen.

My one question would be the inclusion of a couple of goblins like Bazaar Trader, Foundry Street Denizen or Goblin Diplomats. I understand these creatures are cheap and each come with their own mini-strategy perks, but there are a few out there that pair very well to a couple of cards you have included in here to make for really big perks. For example, I noticed Goblin Ringleader was not included probably due to his mana cost of 4, which is high for a goblin, but I have found he's really useful in tandem with cards like Goblin Recruiter. Just put him on top of the library before the four you want, and you have them in your hand as soon as he comes out. Siege-Gang Commander is another one that I'm guessing is viewed as a little too pricey mana-wise, but he greatly increases your number of goblins for Krenko's ability and doubles as a sac outlet.

Those would be my only suggestions, and they're very much "to each his own" in terms of how one views mana-cost, but overall very solid deck!
