Definitely not against those effects as they enable my goblin horde to walk through if Goblin King is out. Replacements are getting tricky in this deck and I don't own a copy of Magus of the Moon, but it's certainly a card to consider adding to the 'Mono-Red Douchebaggery' roster. Thanks for the evil idea ihmnp.

Wynasty84 How fun, welcome to the game! I may not be the best player there is, but if you ever have any questions, feel free to ask me!

One other goblin suggestions that you should consider is Goblin King, he's great against red decks so he makes good SB material. I would decrease your Krenkos to 2x, since you won't be able to have more than one of him in play at the same time, and tempo is really important in a goblin deck! You should aim to win at turn 4, everything later than that and your opponent will have the upper hand and your only way to win past that will be to draw a Goblin Grenade or have som other burn. I would replace Collateral Damage entirely with Lightning Bolts!, since they won't sacrifice your poor little Gobbos. If you need more burn than that i would recommend Skullcrack or Searing Blood. I would probably cut Hordeling Outburst since turn 3 you like something that attacks directly or gives a boost to the rest of your goblins. I had Krenko's Command in my goblin deck earlier, but replaced it with Mogg War Marshal, since it's a bit more resilient against sweepers and if you cast it at turn 3 or later it's a perfect target for the grenade. I would probably cut Reverberate, too since it's a card that doesn't do anything on it's own, which can be problematic if you're playing a fast deck.

Please tell me how Contested War Zone works in the deck! I've been thinking about adding it to my goblin deck, but I'm afraid that the colorless mana will be a prolem, so I'm interested in knowing if it's good :)

Chieftain is slow in modern, 3 cmc is high for aggro decks,i used to run 3-4 in my goblins years ago, but since then Reckless Bushwhacker/gob bushwhacker does it better, even though its only for the turn its much faster

Not to mention, chieftain only hastes goblins and most of the goblins in here have natural haste, and bushwhacker hastes ALL creatures which is better in this list since its more hybrid aggro than goblin tribal

If he went full goblin 2 or 3 Goblin Chieftain wouldn't be a bad idea, but the state of modern is MUCH faster than it used to be, so cheiftain might be a little slow in the current Meta

Even then, ive heard that Goblin Rabblemaster outperforms chieftain these days, as it spawns goblins with haste and swings very big if not dealt with, and goblins dont care about attacking each turn most of the time because they are disposable damage, plus chieftain and Goblin King in my experience only lord OTHER goblins, meaning in the likely event your opponent kills most of your goblins, the lord effect becomes a dead effect when opponents play around it

I think Feldon of the Third Path might be just the right form of "recursion" that this deck needs. I always had a hard time justifying something like Elixir of Immortality because it was too much of a hard reset late game when I really need selective recursion. Trading Post was too slow and expensive. It only got worse from there.

Being able to bring back a creature, even for a single turn, could be the difference between winning or losing a game in this deck. Getting Goblin King, Urabrask the Hidden, or Krenko, Mob Boss back into play could be invaluable.

Not sure what to cut for it, but definitely going to figure out how to fit him in.

ToolmasterOfBrainerd, i have to say: i try out a lot of decks! all of them are higher rated than mine :) (thats not difficult) and often the other decks are the winner. thats because i am able to be neutral, logic, fair.

you as a "neutral" person could try it xD his deck against mine...

and don't forget to ignore goblin kings edge (because its not fair to use the edge... thats because i always try to compare my decks with other decks... i play with my blue deck against other blue decks, with my black deck against other black decks... and than i see which one is better... but i don't use the landwalk-edges of -for example- Lord of Atlantis or Goblin King to be fair.)

No problem. I found the Blood Moon works wonders with Goblin King because it is very rare to meet a deck with only basic lands.
