Big fan of the deck. I was hoping to morph it into more of a 1v1 duel deck. Do you have any suggestions? I put in Legion Loyalist and Goblin Piledriver. Thank you!

I feels a lot like a mono-red deck that just happens to contain a lot of goblins.

I think you are lacking in tribal support.

Goblin Grenade, Goblin Chieftain, Goblin Piledriver and Goblin Rabblemaster could be great additions

If you're looking to spend a decent bit of money on the deck any amount of Goblin Guide will make you stronger, Goblin Piledriver will synergize with your large amount of tokens, and Frenzied Goblin would be a great sideboard card against decks that have tougher creatures early. I play a goblin burn deck: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/ramens-goblin-horde/?cb=1532990646

It's definitely a different style of play than yours though.

Your deck looks like a lot of fun, good luck in your games!

Your mileage may vary, but if it were my deck, I'd consider the following changes. Mainly a bunch of ideas to shop from, depending on how much you want to lean on Impact Tremors as your main/sole strategy


  • Foundry Street Denizen - Super for a deck that's going to make Goblins in batches
  • Krenko's Command - Good value for the CMC. If you want lots of Tremors triggers, 4 Dragon Fodder may not be enough.
  • Goblin Instigator - Good value
  • Lightning Bolt - Good in any red deck. So versatile.
  • Maybe Add or Sideboard:

  • Goblin Bushwhacker - If you want to be able to flip into swinging mode
  • Reckless Bushwhacker - The other Bushwhacker; almost as good.
  • Quest for the Goblin Lord - Great in a token deck if you want to swing with them.
  • Goblin Piledriver - If you want a huge Goblin to swing
  • Throne of the God-Pharaoh - Extra damage from swinging. The more the merrier.
  • Shared Animosity - If you're swinging enough Goblins, this can just go nuts.
  • Keep:

  • Mogg War Marshal - 3 Tremors activations for 2 CMC
  • Goblin Grenade - Best card ever for Goblins
  • Dragon Fodder - Good value for making Goblin tokens
  • Hordeling Outburst - Good mana value and fine card efficiency
  • Drop:

  • Empty the Warrens - Too inefficient - 4 CMC for 2 tokens
  • Goblin Arsonist - yeah, they combo with the Grenades, but there are just better choices overall.
  • Boggart Shenanigans - Maybe in the sideboard in case you are facing sweepers. Maybe. There are better options, though. If you need that kind of option, I'd suggest Goblin Bombardment instead, as you're not dependent on the opponent's timing, it's cheaper, it can target creatures, and you can use it for a finisher.
  • Maybe Drop:

  • Tormenting Voice - Costs 2 cards and 2 mana to get 2 cards. Just play more cheap token cards. If you need them in order to be sure of getting get your Impact Tremors, though, leave then in.
  • Take a look at my latest Goblin deck if you want. I didn't feature Impact Tremors, though I do run it, and it does fine work indeed. My deck is called What do you call that? A Goblipede?

    Goblin Rabblemaster and Goblin Piledriver get buffs from other attacking goblins making them devastating if left unblocked. In my goblin deck, I play Coat of Arms making all your goblins big and scary. I also play Goblin Bombardment so i can just sac all my goblins and kill the opponent. good looking deck though.

    Cards I'd cut:

    Caged Sun - It's over the curve of the deck

    Helm of the Host - Not really needed

    Slate of Ancestry - No reliquary tower

    Stoneforge Masterwork - Not needed

    Sword of the Paruns - Not needed / doesn't help the deck

    Goblin Warrens - Not worth it

    In the Web of War - Shared animosity is in your build, good.

    Mass Hysteria - Fevor and Hammer are fine

    Rise of the Hobgoblins - Nope

    Kyren Negotiations - Not worth it

    Burn at the Stake - Not worth it, need to lower your curve

    Descent of the Dragons - Lower your curve

    Chancellor of the Forge - Depends on how much you like this.. otherwise, lower your curve

    As for what I'd add...

    Chaos Warp - Red has little enchantment removal, this gets around that. Can also target one of your goblins for free stuff

    Beetleback Chief - Value

    Goblin King - This is a wincon with Blood Moon

    Blood Moon - Shuts down strip mine and other annoying lands

    Goblin Piledriver - THIS is goblins

    Imperial Recruiter - Value

    Legion Loyalist - Trample

    Ogre Battledriver - Value, haste +2/+0

    Reckless One - Value when you have board state

    Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - Value

    Ancient Tomb - T2 Krenko

    There's a ton of new goblins in M19, keep an eye out. I've got a Krenko build too if you want to check it out. Hope this helped you out.
