Grenzo, Dungeon Warden kind of seems like a slow gamble for the format.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker+Lightning Crafter+Skirk Prospector=infinite damage combo.

I think that Legion Loyalist could be a good 1x for you (maybe replace a Skirk Prospector? Give those Goblin Piledrivers trample and stop chump blocks.

Grenzo, Havoc Raiser is worth considering imo. I think 1x of him will start popping up in legacy decks.

I like and run 2x Ancient Tomb, but people who play gobs have mixed feelings about them.

Boseiju, Who Shelters All?

Boggart Mob can get pretty out of control with Krenko, Mob Boss and the champion effect lets you retrigger a creature like Goblin Matron or Goblin Ringleader. Same with Lightning Crafter.

Sparksmith used to be popular for larger removal, but he hurts like hell. Might save you against reanimator decks and the like since you get more than one use out of him, unlike Gempalm Incinerator.Looks like fun!

Ok, I got it now. If Krenko is a crucial part of your strategy, then use Goblin Matron to search for him. Secondly, it would be useful to have something like Fervor, so that you could activate Krenko the turn you got him. Hope this helps!

In case you were wondering how he gets Krenko out that early, if I'm unable to block his initial Goblin Lackey attack, he can put a goblin out for free. He also uses Goblin Matron and Goblin Warchief to ensure he gets Krenko in hand, and to reduce mana costs. Maybe "turn 4" is a bit of an exaggeration, that's only on the off-chance that I'm unable to block the Lackey's initial attack.

mtgftw2014: Goblin Matron is indeed there to fetch Krenko, or Siege-Gang Commander in a pinch :)

I just upped it. By the way, do you really need a Goblin Matron in there? I don't really see the goblin theme, unless it's in there to grab krenko, the combo man, in that case I understand. Regardless, I highly recommend main boarding Plague Myr. Easy to play, gets you a t3 Zada, and is a wincon in a pinch. I understand that you're not going the melee route, but in case anyone on this forum does, I'd suggest Grenzo's Ruffians.
