Goblin King + Blood Moon combo? Modern is teeming with non-basic lands

Also suggest Aether Vial if you want to invest some more into the deck

Welcome to Commander!

First, your goblin deck is illegal; you cannot play Alesha, Who Smiles at Death in Rakdos because she has white in her color identity.

Second, your mana base could use an upgrade. Command Tower , Blood Crypt , Dragonskull Summit , Tainted Peak , Auntie's Hovel , Castle Embereth , Foreboding Ruins , Graven Cairns , Luxury Suite , Myriad Landscape , Smoldering Marsh , and Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle are all worth looking into for this color combination.

Then, you are missing several Goblin staples, like Goblin Recruiter , Goblin King , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker .

Finally, Coat of Arms can quickly turn against you. Better use Door of Destinies , Vanquisher's Banner , Icon of Ancestry and Herald's Horn . And Kindred Charge .

Hope this helps, happy building!

Thoughts on Blood Moon and Goblin King ?

Mechanics aside there are plenty of creatures that confer Lord-ish bonuses without being an actual Lord, like Mad Auntie .

It would have been right on point to have given Korvold, Fae-Cursed King and Goblin King the same "Lord" subtype, since they are both kings.

All they would have needed to do was reverse their decision to remove "Lord" as a subtype, just say "Yeah, we were wrong removing the type from Goblin King , so let's go back to the 9th edition wording: Goblin King ."

@Tito_Tacito Yeah Goblin King is gas. Only reason he wasn't there is I haven't gone back to update the list in a while.

Idk about warchief. We need the lords to play through Plague Engineer and with the combo package taking up slots there isn't much room for enablers. My rational is we have reasonably fast draws without it while the other half gives us the option of grinding. Giving the grindy half a little extra speed doesn't seem all that important to me but then again what do I know.

I like your sideboard ideas for dealing with the various colors you might encounter. I'm working on modernizing an older goblin deck myself and I'm going to borrow a few of your combos ideas for sure!

Is there a reason you don't have any Goblin King s even in the sideboard for Mountainwalk?

Are you looking to have fun, win, or a bit o' both? A good card for goblins, because you can cast so many is Impact Tremors . In a 1v1 game the pinging will benefit you greatly. I would also try to up your Krenko, Mob Boss to at least a 3-of. That card is insane! If wanted to, you could up Goblin King to 4, and throw in some Blood Moon 's, or (much cheaper) Alpine Moon . That would help you hit the damage home. Mogg War Marshal is pretty good because you get that chump blocker that will be sac'ed anyway (usually that is), and gives you some tokens. If you want to add more 4-drops (kinda not recommended, but whatever) Goblin Trashmaster is a pretty good buffer and removal for pesky artifacts. Goblin Chieftain buffs and lets you swing wide. Goblin Wardriver is good too. I hope I helped! Good luck!
