You are welcome. I like the vibe of this deck. I was glad to see Nemesis Mask and Disrupt Decorum in there. If you want more control on the field Grappling Hook, Blinding Flare, Breath of Furyand Goblin Diplomats. A bit of chaos and control, Mass Hysteria

Marvell - I don't know if you've noticed, but I actually ditched Draught in the last update. It only really got good results about 1/5 casts that I drew it, so that's just not reliable enough. In its place I added Goblin Diplomats, as I recently joined a new playgroup with a heavy blue combo/control meta; people often refuse to attack - so I needed at least one more reliable source for forcing them.

Rector's totally not necessary. It gets me Mystic Barrier, Mirari's Wake, or Curse of Bloodletting depending on what I need at the time, but it's easily cut-able (especially since it's valuable).

Honestly, because Rector's effect is so unique you can really cut him in favor of anything - more forced attacks (Master Warcraft and the like), more ramp (Nature's Lore or a signet or something), more removal (Swords/Path, Song of the Dryads, etc), or even something spicy like Beastmaster Ascension. You're not going to get Rector's effect anywhere else so really anything goes.

If I had to cut Rector myself I'd add Mentor of the Meek back in, probably.

so......a goblin flamethrower huh? can't say i've seen that before. and that saying something since i am a pro goblin commander player. now....onto business.

if this deck is meant to be a flamethrower then toss out a good chunk of the cards including.....

Goblin Rabblemaster

Goblin Diplomats

Hellraiser Goblin

Goblin Heelcutter

Goblin Goon

Goblin Chieftain

Boggart Brute

Cleaver Riot

Berserkers' Onslaught

Relentless Assault

Coat of Arms

Shared Animosity

however, if this deck is suppose to have a dual function (like burn and swarm) then i can understand why allot of those cards are in there. but even so having Goblin Rabblemaster and Hellraiser Goblin is a no go for goblin swarming. swarming takes time and tactics. those two are like "nope. you attack whether you want to or not" so get those out. i have yet to find a good tactic involving those two. but if you use X based spells then Volcanic Geyser and Rolling Thunder are both good choices.

Mrf1shie, thanks for taking a look at the deck.

I haven't tried Fumiko specifically but I have tried that effect with Goblin Diplomats and Goblin Spymaster. My experience was that people would agree to attack me out of spite for being forced to attack (even with the pillowfort). That is why I prefer cards like Disrupt Decorum and Besmirch because you force them to attack each other. Curse of Opulence and Duelist's Heritage are great because it gives them a bonus of they attack someone else. Maybe the mindset of your playgroup is different and you won't run into the same problem of people attacking you out of spite. Just want to warn you this MAY happen, especially after they figure out what Marchesa is up to.

Speaking of jank....

Goblin Diplomats is like a discount Fumiko the Lowblood. They're dirt cheap and selectively forcing all enemies to attack is great to keep things moving.

Avatar of Slaughter cranks things up to 11 if he sticks. Might be too expensive, but he looks fun.

Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile can be a strong rattlesnake to keep those armies of 1/1's you throw around off your back. Similarly Reverence keeps your own tokens at bay, and it's thematic as hell.

Thunderstaff for ultimate jank / low budget options.
