Goblin Sharpshooter Discussion

Took a look over the list. Have a couple questions to ask first before I can offer you some cards you can consider!
- What is your budget? How much are you willing to spend for a single card?
- Is there any house rules you play by? Ex. No infinite combo, No land destruction, etc.
- Aside from tribal theme, what deck direction do you want to go to? Aggro, combo, value? Some cards right away I would add albeit is Goblin Matron , Spikeshot Elder , Goblin Sharpshooter , Dark-Dweller Oracle , Goblin Ringleader , and Thornbite Staff . Pretty much value cards that a core Krenko should have, you have most of the great Goblin cards needed. Looking forward to hearing your response!

Apcooper32 Workhorse used to be in the deck, but was taken out because the cmc of 6 hurts us too badly off of Ad Nauseam. It's also not very castable on its own if you're trying to win manually.
Has anyone looked into running Judith, the Scourge Diva in place of Mogg Raider or Goblin Sledder? She does the same thing as the goblins in our Kiki piles, but is more flexible since it has that Goblin Sharpshooter -like ability stapled onto it. I don't know of anything that combos with it at the moment, but I like that a potential line is open.

I really like the concept of this deck. I have a few things that combine deathtouch and trample, but no all-deathtouch decks. That may need to change. :-) Evasion, such as flying and fear are nice to include in the mix, as you have. After all, the opponent may be running some deathtouch too. Your Viridian Longbow and Nature's Way go a long way to cover that base as well. Still, there's nothing like trample for a deathtoucher, as it lets you kill another critter along the way, and even against an indestructible blocker, it lets you deliver all but one power to the face or to take out several blockers if they want to line 'em up like dominos for ya.
That said, I'd try to find a place for more trample action, either in the critters themselves or in the buffs.
Some stuff I've found useful in your deck's colors:
Rabid Bite - Similar to Nature's Way but not quite as good
Larger Than Life , Wildsize - Trample + Buff
Bow of Nylea - More useful if you don't already have all deathtouchers
Champion of Lambholt , Overrun , Prowler's Helm , Rogue's Passage , Whispersilk Cloak - Evasion
Deadly Recluse - Another deathtouching early blocker, but this one has reach.
Ambush Viper - So sweet when they don't see it coming
First strike is also really nice in a deathtoucher, but if you try to have everything, it dilutes a deck too much.
Or can you . . . ? Chariot of Victory - First Strike + Trample + Haste and reusable

@apohl13, if you're playing in a multiplayer group, then you should be able to leverage the other players' threats to redirect attacks towards them. I've played against a lot of token decks, and typically I can either tutor for an answer with Goblin Matron or Moggcatcher , or I can beat them out by racing to one of my combos.
If you're playing 1v1 or just facing a lot of token aggro, here are some additional protection/hate pieces to help you manage your meta:
Goblin Chainwhirler - one-sided ping effect to remove your opponents' token fliers (assuming they aren't buffed)
Judith, the Scourge Diva - additional pings for all of your sacs
Pentavus - provides fliers of your own
Night Incarnate - board wipe that can be repeatedly called on, though it will kill most of your things too
Hopes that gives you some good ideas!

Makes sense. Also, My best friend has taken to playing Orzhov tokens. How would you recommend going against this without board wipes? I get that Goblin Sharpshooter and Deathbringer Thoctar can mass kill tokens, but what if I don't find either of them, or he buffs his tokens to more than 1 toughness? Additionally, this deck seems to be weak against fliers, so I'm slightly concerned about what will happen when he fills his board with flying spirit tokens. If you have any experience with this, I would love it if you would share. :)

Meishin, the Mind Cage is freaking hilarious as you negate armies and only your guys can cause damage. 1 point at a time.

Goblin Sharpshooter can completely shut down certain decks. Also really strong when paired with tokens and a sac outlet.
