Goblin General Discussion
1 year ago
I like the Idea, even brewed a little bit with that myself. Here are the problems I encountered and see in your brew of goblins in general, desregarding the "aristocrats" theme. I will comment on that further down:
Electrickery is the first card sideborded against this, and in your brew, there are no creatures to survive it. It gets especially annoying, if our opponent casts it in response to a Goblin War Strike . Not quite as devastating but still annoying are cards like Nausea or Shrivel . This is one of the main reasons, most goblin decks run some numbers of Goblin Cohort or Mogg Conscripts (next to the fact, that a 2/2 for is pretty ok).
How reliable is Kuldotha Rebirth , with just 8 targets? Especially, since you might need great furnace to sacrifice to fireblast.
What do you need Goblin Matron for? She is normaly used to get a specific answer to whatever is needed. Is there any goblin that is worth it to tutor out on turn 3 or later as an speciic answer to a bord state? the only one that comes to mind is Sparksmith , to get rid of a blocker, like an angler. However, you only have one matron in the deck anyway, for mostly your only target, sparksmith. Either slow down the deck and run more targets like Goblin General , Tarfire , Goblin Lookout or Goblin Bushwhacker , or cut her.
How reliable is fling? You mostly will be able to fling either foundry street or a sledder pumped creature. However, both require specific circumstances, either to play a lot of cards from hand and still having mana and fling in hand, or a big bord, fling in hand and sledder on field.
Now, for your basic Idea.
If you want to make a lot of tokens, you need a consistant payof. Goblin war strike is one, but, only one. The aristocrats theme is hard, if the only sacrifice outlet and benefit are 4 copies of goblin sledder. I don't have a definite solution for this, just some ideas. One is to forget about sacrificing your tokens and include cards like Goblin Bushwhacker or even Goblin War Party and go full on a go wide and pump your team strategy.
The other is to go in a goblin storm direction, as seen in this youtube video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYE5gnDl1ZE&t=902s
I hope I could help.

Hi there, glad to see another Horde-Magic enthusiast around here! Suggestions would be Beetleback Chief , Bloodmark Mentor and Goblin General for once. How do you rule stuff like Siege-Gang-Commander by the way?

Couple of ideas. Tin Street reads "Create a number of 1/1 tokens equal to Krenko's power". Not counters, POWER. So, I'd recommend a bit more power boosting effects like:
Copy Tin Street's ability:
Other fun options:

Goblin Piledriver - combos with Goblin Tunneler, Break Through the Line, and key to the city for big damage + pro-blue
Not a goblin but maybe Embermaw Hellion to increase damage by red sources?
would suggest removing: Skirk Prospector (why would you want to sacrifice your goblins?), Book Burning, Battle Hymn + Brightstone Ritual (not many mana dumps)

Mana Echoes and krenko are best friends
rabble master tends to be poor in EDH
Goblin General is a ok lord you could try

Footbottom Feast (Wort already returns Goblins to your hand every turn anyway)
Last-Ditch Effort (Goblin Bombardment does the job better)
Boggart Forager (his effect is kind of useless)
Kill-Suit Cultist (weak and situational removal)
Zo-Zu the Punisher (he doesn't really contribute to your game plan)
Horde of Boggarts (good card, but since this deck is multicolor, could be replaced with something stronger)
Goblin General (without ways to gain additional combat phases or create token copies of him, he's kind of weak)
Rummaging Goblin (bit expensive for a delayed effect, poor topdeck if your opponent removes it)

nickmavrick, a lot of EDH decks have blue in it, and it would suck if Krenko or another good goblin gets countered. At first, Krenko is 4 mana to put out, and then 6... and then 8... It would soon be too expensive to use.
