Goblin Offensive Discussion

I'm impressed by the number of -drops in here right now. Almost as many as the land count!
Even with a few more pieces of ramp like Fellwar Stone, Solemn Simulacrum, and/or Gilded Lotus; def get your land count up to at least 36. Reflecting Pool is cool. One or more of each basic would be good because Blood Moon exists
You have an underlying token theme that might be better served in another deck like Marath, Will of the Wild or Ghave, Guru of Spores. They may need to come out to help streamline your strategy. Unless your opponents are hilariously slow; Goblin Offensive isn't a good fit. Rampaging Baloths is better with a lot of lands or fetch lands. Assemble the Legion mmmaybe worth keeping if you add Triumph of the Hordes wink wink
All of your current instants could be counterspells. Quietus Spike is an old pet card of mine, but slow when most of the creatures are a high cmc already. Hostility is meant for spells like Lightning Bolt
Above all have fun! Obviously some options I've offered are quite expensive. Build it how you want it. PEACE

I may be crazy, but it seems like pairing Young Pyromancer with buyback spells might be interesting with Prossh. Fanning the Flames could take the place of Burn at the Stake, Lab Rats or Wurmcalling or Sprout Swarm could take the place of Spoils of Blood, Reiterate is just plain good, Disturbed Burial has it's use, and Haze of Rage is a possible win con.

Alright, more thoughts:
1) I'm not sure you have enough token generators to use Minion of Leshrac safely. I use Minion in my LD deck, and I've got two planeswalkers that generate tokens, Krenko, Mob Boss, and Goblin Offensive. And I'm not sure that I have enough to use him safely.
2) Too much of your LD hits you as hard as it hits your opponents. This makes you overly reliant on Crucible of Worlds and mana rocks/mana dorks. And you have only one mana rock and two mana dorks to rely on.
4) No tutors?
5) Omen of Fire is an auto-include for Jund LD. Even if your game doesn't have both white and blue opponents, it will definitely have white or blue.

Thanks for the comment, rkjunior! And a lot of these cards have been in and out or have been considered, haha. Great minds think alike, right? I (not too long ago) took out Goblin Offensive and Goblin Rally because of their costs and because ETB generation has more synergy with Panharmonicon.
Goblin Wizard was another sad one I had to give up...as much as I loved that goofy sucker, he just wasn't efficient enough for me. Skirk Fire Marshal and Arms Dealer being similar cases in the sense that they were too self-destructive.
The remaining cards were all considered on and off as well, but just didn't fit as tightly as I would like. Trust me though, I have considered them all at one point! Always good to hear from another Purph player, and thanks again for your comment, friend. Praise be to Purphoros! ;D

Love the deck. I built a budget Purphoros deck during a friends $100 challenge but I'm looking to upgrade it, and this is exactly what I was looking for. While a lot of your synergies were the same as mine, there's a handful of cards I ran and wanted to hear what you thought.
Arms Dealer, Dictate of the Twin Gods, Forgotten Cave, Furnace of Rath, Goblin Lookout, Goblin Offensive, Goblin Rally, Goblin Wizard, Norin the Wary, Skirk Fire Marshal, Smoldering Crater, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, Fanatic of Mogis

I've run most of these in the past and over time moved away from them. Both Mimic Vat and Indomitable Creativity are too off the beaten path for the play style I have when piloting the deck. Both are good cards for decks like this, but just not up my alley.
Dualcaster Mage was in an earlier rendition of this deck, but since my focus is more on creatures/enchantments I have taken it out.
I would love Gamble, but my tutor targets are combo pieces and I don't really have recursion in case I have to discard that piece.
Goblin Offensive was of course part of my original build, but throughout the development of this deck I have moved to appreciate a closer ratio between CMC and goblin and prefer that 1:1 rather than 1:4 that the cheapest Offensive I could cast.
Again, Yurip, thanks for the comments! All of which are great choices, but just not the direction I am aiming for with this build!

I understand about the lens and quest for pureflame. Grenzo though has some wicked defense against top deck tutors with the exile ability.
I think that Indomitable Creativity needs a place though! especially since you dont run temp with vengeance. I really like Mimic Vat too as it adds alot of depth to the board at all points in the game.
Any thoughts on Dualcaster Mage the vat and panharmonicon help him greatly!
Gamble as tutor for panharmonicon?
Finally what about Goblin Offensive for dumping mana from mana echoes.
Thanks for your time!
