Goblin Ringleader Discussion
3 weeks ago
I've cooked up the following to start the discussion:
1 VIEW | IN 1 FOLDER
We still don't have Goblin Matron, Goblin Recruiter, or Goblin Ringleader, which is what typically gets cast early via Goblin Warchief. Most of the good gobos in Modern have a lot of in their casting cost.
Do we want more colors? Green gives us Collected Company, Tin Street Hooligan, and Atarka's Command. Black gives us Earwig Squad and Fatal Push. We could also go the Death and Taxes route, playing Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Ghost Quarter, and Path to Exile. Hell, we can even play blue for Phantasmal Image (loading up on as many lords as possible) and Spreading Seas.
Any other ideas?

Thanks for the comments guys! @ticked-off-squirrel Yeah Hazoret's Monument could certainly be a good choice for a this deck. I'm kind of unsure about taking out Goblin Rabblemaster for it though. I've always hated that he makes your goblins attack every turn, but it's usually not too big of a deal. Boardwipes are always a risk when playing lots of creatures, especially in multiplayer EDH games, but with Krenko, Mob Boss I usually find it's the more the merrier! If I were to add Hazoret's Monument it would probably be at the expense of Ruby Medallion to be honest. Having 3 different cost reducers just feels like a little bit of overkill to me. If you happen to draw them all in the same game then there are only 4 goblins in this deck with 3 colourless mana in their cost: Goblin Ringleader, Lightning Crafter, Reckless One and Siege-Gang Commander. As for Goblin Warrens I actually had that in one of the earlier versions of this deck. It's a fun card and good flavour-wise, but it doesn't hold up to comparable things like Umbral Mantle or Staff of Domination. For all of them they have an initial cost of 3 to play and then 3 to activate an ability that can help give you more goblins. Of course Umbral Mantle and Staff of Domination require Krenko, Mob Boss on the field, but they are also much more powerful. The fact that Goblin Warrens requires a coloured mana for its ability also makes it more difficult to go infinite. I might consider taking out something like Dragon Fodder for Goblin Warrens, but that's probably about it. Thanks for the suggestions though! Cheers!

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

goblinguiderevealpls: For my regular playgroup I take out my Lightning Crafter (and also the Thornbite Staff). The sideboard I show here is cards I am playtesting or want to find a permanent slot for.
With that being said, I never used Goblin Ringleader, which meant I was always tutoring for them separately, or drawing them slowly. I will definitely have to use that instead to get it all cleanly like you laid out. Thanks for the advice!

how it works:
cast Goblin Recruiter and tutor in this order top to bottom
(Any other goblin you want to draw with ringleader here)
Play warchief and ringleader, drawing the last 3
Cast Kiki, then cast crafter, with the champion effect on the stack, tap kiki in response to make a token of crafter, champion kiki with the original crafter, and then champion crafter with its token, tap the crafter token for a Lightning Bolt sac the token to prospector, bringing in kiki jiki and crafter untapped, repeat this and you have infinite bolt damage and infinite
