Now that we have Goblin Warchief and Skirk Prospector, what options have opened up for us Goblin players in Modern?

I've cooked up the following to start the discussion:

Blood Moon Goblins

Modern* sylvannos


Some thoughts:

Any other ideas?

Going to just leave some suggestions:

Chancellor of the Forge

Purphoros, God of the Forge + Impact Tremors these cards are all stars in goblin decks and also helps you win outside of combat damage

Dragon Fodder check out some of the other goblin producing sorceries they are great

Neheb, the Eternal can setup other stuff to happen after combat

Blasphemous Act


Boggart Shenanigans

Goblin Matron and Goblin Recruiter can help you find the goblins you want but use Imperial Recruiter if you own it.

Glaring Spotlight can help you get rid of some of the things on the board as well as make these gobos lethal late game

Shared Animosity or Coat of Arms Lets just make these goblins terrifyingly huge

Paradox Engine can be amazing if you end up having 7-10 mana rocks in your final build and Mana Echoes can be broken with krenko

Chandra, Torch of Defiance and Koth of the Hammer are the only planeswalkers I'd run though.

Gotreck Aloha, thanks for commenting. I prefer not to run many sorceries and/or instants because that's less targets for my tutors like Goblin Matron, Goblin Recruiter, Moggcatcher, and Imperial Recruiter. I also get to recur them again with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Feldon of the Third Path, and Mimic Vat. Plus I have many goblin token producing creatures like Beetleback Chief, Krenko, Mob Boss, Mogg War Marshal, Siege-Gang Commander. And they are targetable with the majority of the tutors and also recurable since they're creatures. I do believe in the value of being able to tutor things and Red really isn't strong with it so we have to make do with what we have.

For your Ogre Battledriver, Door of Destinies and Herald’s Horn suggestions I do already have a set of lords like Goblin Chieftain, Goblin Warchief, Goblin King, and the artifact Coat of Arms. I also have Ruby Medallion, Hazoret's Monument, and Goblin Warchief for cost reduction. I'm not too worried really about bolstering my goblins with +1/+1 effects since I barely need to attack.

I used to run Mogg Infestation. It really is a great finisher. But with my meta I needed to have more reliable board wipes, hence Blasphemous Act. Sometimes I'll have this sitting in my hand when I need to wipe the board and it'll be useless. If I can find room I'll run it again but the deck runs fine without it; at least in my meta.

I kind of looks like we have the same priorities but just different methods of execution. It's always nice to meet a fellow Purphoros, God of the Forge player. Thanks to you I may to a write-up for this deck.

That's the Idea, I have Goblin Bombardment On route, and I have just found my Goblin Sharpshooter and Replaced with Goblin Recruiter Since I haven't had much in the way of need from him so far. While any goblin I want could be good, That only really works if I have a way of drawing again that turn. If I have Skullclamp it works, but I don't really need the Recruiter tbh. In my experience when you stack your deck (in my play group especially) They mill your cards so you don't get it haha.

Entrei It is super upsetting. The other people in my group really have no reason to leave we still enjoy it but our friend just doesn't find it fun. I can agree with you that certain cards need to be banned. It all started after i had built my Sliver deck. My play group has always been focused on tribal decks we have everything from tribal samurai to tribal illusions. After my Slivers (Which i now realize how cancer those are) I deviled deep into magic. My game has change i'm a combo player now. I dream one day to have a Tolarian Academy deck. But he focuses on fun decks, and don't get me wrong i love fun decks i have a squirrel deck. (Back to my story sorry its so long) Soon people where buying more powerful cards and the problem is if we say my friends Goblin Recruiter ban then he comes back and says my tolrian should be ban well then it jumps around till our decks aren't playable. It is just so sad the game even just me think about it without him feel different. hopefully we can find a middle ground thanks for your input

In addition to all the great green creature tutors like Chord of Calling there's even Goblin Recruiter, Goblin Matron, and Moggcatcher to find Zada every game.

I just 1v1'd my brother and his Animar, Soul of Elements deck. One glaring weakness I noticed is the lack of board-wipe in this build. I'm adding Skirk Fire Marshal and Blasphemous Act somehow. Mogg Infestation doesn't really count as a board-wipe. I may replace that with one of the two as well. It's not needed.

skirk fire marshall is can be sought with Moggcatcher, Goblin Matron, Goblin Recruiter, and Imperial Recruiter; not to mention Gamble. Blasphemous Act has a high CMC but it's offset by the amount of creatures I can produce onto the battlefield.

I may replace Grenzo, Havoc Raiser with Sensation Gorger. Grenzo seems a little lackluster right now. Plus if I can tutor for Goblin Recruiter, I can find Sensation Gorger and whatever four other goblins I want and put them on top of my library with Gorger on top. The next turn I'll cast him. The following turn I'll be able to draw the other four goblin cards into my hand on my upkeep.
