What about Goblin Piledriver?

Pro blue is a nice addition, but the ability to pump it seems pretty good.

Than you, Stephencliffe and SlimJim83!!

I will swap Collateral Damage for Lightning Strike, and see how I feel about it.

I don't have many Reckless Bushwhackers but I will try putting some more as son as I get them.

Outnumber is in the side deck instead of the main deck because most players I play against have a horde of small creatures or don't have creatures at all, I really like that card tho.

About Goblin Rabblemaster: I can't decide if I put him or not, because he turns Goblin Piledriver in a suicide when both are in the battlefield, but he could be good for when I don't draw Goblin Piledriver.

Thank y'all for the suggestions!!

I noticed that Goblin Rabblemaster isn't in the mainboard. He's great, I would mainboard him. Not sure why you only have two Reckless Bushwhacker, as it's definitely one of the best cards in the deck.

Collateral Damage isn't very good. The way your deck wins is mainly through attacking early and often. 3 damage in exchange for an attacker that can be a recurring threat, even if it's just a 1/1, isn't a great tradeoff. You're trying to make Goblin Piledriver and Goblin Rabblemaster too big to overcome, you need as many creatures as possible for that.

Other than that, I would for sure run Outnumber in the mainboard. It's good against any deck that has creatures, and control isn't huge in frontier. Hope this helps, great to see someone running goblins in frontier. Good luck!

Hi,at first i love goblin decks an play it too. How good work this list?

What I think, Legion Loyalist must in main deck, he is not so stron as a first drop like Foundry Street Denizen, but he harmonizes in midgame better whit your other goblins, especially white Goblin Piledriver.

Warren Instigator its strong but slow, when uyou play him use his strange to cast Krenko, Mob Boss or Siege-Gang Commander.

Reckless Bushwhacker its good bus not so good like Goblin Bushwhacker. To cast him for his surge coast you need to cast another card befor, its possebel in turn three or four, but in this stadium in game I am most in topdeck modus.

You dont need the green splash, your landbase coast too much live, better play 4 Mutavault. Ancient Grudge can destroy 2 artefacs, sure its good but white green splash its Destructive Revelry better, yes its bubry only one artefact but its deald damage. Or play Smash to Smithereens or Shatterstorm in a only red list.

Blood Moon its so good and its synergizes so good with Goblin King (King its only as one of in SB, I like him but its not for everyone).

Whats is with your gravehate?

Harashiohorn on token deck help

So a word of forewarning, Token decks are often pretty anemic when it comes to finishing off the opponent, so they can be rather grindy to play more competitively, and also are typically tier 2 or lower.

That being said here is a pretty stock B/W Tokens list from back when the deck was tier 1.5-2, it is based off of the Modern Event Deck. It is missing Liliana of the Veil Though.


Long story short, B/W is usually the route to go as it gives you access to the best token generators Spectral Procession and Lingering Souls, as well as the best anthems Intangible Virtue. Black primarily provides good disruption.

As your deck is now I would Either Splash White (and probably ultimately black, going Mardu), or just go down the Combo Goblins route. Splashing White gives you better anthems and better token generators. To go the Goblin Combo route you would add in Krenko, Mob Boss and 4x Goblin Piledriver, and generally go from there.

Love the idea : I did the same for my little brother! :)

My insights :

  • 4 Goblin Chieftain, it's too good.
  • 4 Goblin Piledriver because it gets huge quickly, in a casual environment it can steal wins easily.
  • Any copy of Goblin Warchief for extra lord(ing)? Not a big fan but could be good.
  • I have a tendency to play Drop-1 enchantments like Quest as a one of because they're terrible draws mid/late game.
  • Lightning Bolt as a playset. No need to discuss this.
  • Add some Legion Loyalist for extra aggression. Goes quickly nuts with Piledriver, too.
  • Ever heard of Krenko, Mob Boss? If I were you, I'd put him 1 or 2 times. If you T3 chieftain, T4 Krenko, you can activate Krenko immediately and put 2/2 haste tokens. Too good to pass on :)
  • I'm a personal fan of Reverberate in general, especially good with Goblin Grenade. 3 mana + 2 1/1 tokens = 10 damage? I'll sign up every day.
