Goblin Lackey Discussion
3 weeks ago
Art-n-Lutherie First of all, thanks for the suggestions and advices. But I don't know, if I have the space for Goblin Bombardment and Goblin Rabblemaster. Goblin Sharpshooter was in the origin version of the deck, but I cut him for Goblin Lackey - now I see him only as a sideboard card. Last but not least, the big issue with Goblin Guide is, that my Legion Loyalist have a lot more value in the deck. I don't need a first turn hit for two and maybe give my opponent a land - instead a goblin who gives my goblins first strike and trample sounds really good to me.

I would suggest focusing on having large numbers of low cost Goblins and ones with utility rather than big ones. Battle Squadron, Voracious Dragon, and Berserkers' Onslaught could be cut.
You might cut some of the anthems, or just play more efficient ones. Vanquisher's Banner gives card draw which is really helpful for this deck. Adaptive Automaton is worth a shot as a 2 CMC Goblin lord. Goblin King gives mountainwalk which could be relevant in multiplayer games. The new Goblin Trashmaster is a lord that also provides artifact removal. Ogre Battledriver and In the Web of War give haste and also pump your Goblins, so could replace Hammer of Purphoros.
Mana Echoes could be good to generate mana whenever you make or play Goblins, and also goes infinite with Umbral Mantle or Sword of the Paruns on Krenko if you would include those in your deck. Thornbite Staff can untap Krenko for free whenever a Goblin dies, so it goes infinite with any sac outlet. Ashnod's Altar is another good one.

I might actually be able to clock people with Goblin Lackey now.
I'm still sad, though, as Deathrite Shaman is one of my favorite cards. I just finished building Punishing Jund, too.

Deck isn't modern legal. Goblin Lackey was never printed in a modern set nor is in Dominaria. Was last printed in "From the Vault" which is not a modern legal set.

Just goldfishing around with this deck tonight, and it achieved a turn 3 kill. I didn't realize it could. Had a really sweet starting hand, consisting of:
1x Goblin Lackey
1x Goblin Piledriver
1x Lightning Bolt
1x Reckless Bushwhacker
So, between the starting hand and the draws, This . . . Was . . . Sweet!

If you're sticking with mono-red and one drops, there's still a number of cool things you can do, and I like the consistency and freedom from mana issues that can be had that way. A few suggestions within that framework:
Goblin Grenade - This one really is a must-have. Sells for about $1.
Mogg Fanatic - Surprisingly good 1-drop. Can clear away a pesky small creature, sneak in an extra point of damage when you need it, and even do damage twice when it makes sense to do so.
Quest for the Goblin Lord - A nice 1-drop booster for the goblin army.
Outnumber - Good for clearing larger creatures so the nasty goblin parade can march on in.
My Goblins 1.0 deck has a few nice 1-drop options that I've found quite useful.
Bonesplitter - Cheap power boost.
Goblin Gaveleer - A goblin that just looooves to carry that Bonesplitter.
Mugging - Great for getting damage past a deck that's beginning to outclass the goblins. Kills small problems and lets you evade larger ones.
Skullclamp - Great for adding draw to a deck like this one.
Goblin Lackey - Nice for sneaking in lords, but this deck is all-out rank and file goblins, so I don't recommend it for this build.
Two more that are superb but pricey.
Goblin Guide - Super super goblin, but at about $20 I can't convince myself to pay that for a game piece.
Legion Loyalist - Also very nice. Good relevant abilities. At about $8 apiece, I might buy 1 or 2 someday, but not today.
