Goblin Wardriver Discussion

Chopwood on Goblin Gang

I would skip Frogtosser Banneret, all your spells are so cheap that it's not really relevant to make them even cheaper on turn 4. I'm not sure what to think about Krenko's Enforcer, it's not that strong by itself so I would recommend to add two additional Goblin Chieftains or Goblin King, who would make all your goblins stronger and unblockable if you're playing against a red deck. Go up to 4x bolt, at the expense of Doom blade. I think you have too much removal, you don't really need 7 kill spells, replace most of them with burn, so that you can both kill early blockers and burn your opponent.

Some other cards that are worth to look at:

Goblin Guide - expensive but it's pure win.

Goblin Wardriver - A bit slow, but he can really boost your attackers.

Searing Blood - Good early burn, can kill a blocker and damage your opponent at the same time.

Skullcrack - Sideboard

Quest for the Goblin Lord - Not the best 1-drop, but if you have maybe one or two of them it can boost you small goblins quite a bit.

If you want you can check out my goblin deck and compare. The only card I'm not sure about is Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician, but he's actually performed all right.

With burn, you really want the game to over as soon as possible as the longer it goes on, the less likely you are to win. As a result a lot of burn/aggressive decks have a curve that ends at 3-4. Zealous Conscripts is a nice effect but 5 mana is a bit more than you'd want.

If you want cards similar to lightning bolt, Chain Lightning (not modern legal), Rift Bolt and Lava Spike do a good impression.

Eidolon of the Great Revel is a card that often is a 3 or 4 of in burn. Yeah it hurts you a lot, but for aggressive decks, you either win before your opponent can react, or they stabilize and you lose. As a result your own life total doesn't matter as much. Oftentimes your opponent is forced to spend a removal spell on it causing them to take damage and losing a removal spell for one of your other creatures, and allows you to keep playing without taking damage off of it.

Assuming you keep it causal and not modern, one card i strongly think you should try to pick up a copy of is Sulfuric Vortex. If your opponent can't deal with it, you put them on a clock which gets sped up by all the other cards in your deck. Seeing as how one of the better ways to survive the initial onslaught from a burn/aggressive deck is to gain life, the second line comes in handy as well. Like eidolon, your life total doesnt matter too much

I'd cut the war-names, and conscripts to make room for some of these cards as they are pretty inefficient.

Goblin Wardriver is also worth considering removal as most blocking creatures, kill him so by the time you start attacking with him, he might not be able to do so safely. Rakdos Cackler and Zurgo Bellstriker suffer a similar problem bt not as bad seeing as how they come down turn 1. I still might replace a few of them with a 1 mana deal 3 damage spell.

Goblin Wardriver will likely be better then Guttersnipe as you are essentially running a hoard of goblins and pumping them more is better than the odd snipe for 2...

Dark Ritual isn't modern legal. I'd recommend you swap Murder for Victim of Night, Terminate or maybe even Dreadbore. Goblin Wardriver can be pretty useful for adding a little extra damage too.

An extra pump from Goblin Wardriver might be nice... Otherwise the deck looks good.

Darth_Savage on Mono Red Goblins and their Spitfire

Memnite, Signal Pest alongside Galvanic Blast could work well with your plan, though Goblin Wardriver is probably the easier add. I'm not sure that this deck wants Chandra's Spitfire though, despite having evasion...

Darth_Savage on Mardu Warriors - Input needed!

I played with a warrior deck when khans was released, however I splashed for Sunblade Elf and Bramblewood Paragon. Going the best cards I can think of are Brighthearth Banneret and Goblin Wardriver.

In black you might want to consider Gatekeeper of Malakir, Blood-Chin Rager or Mardu Strike Leader. In white Arashin Foremost or Mardu Woe-Reaper.

I'm not sure you want to be running any of the 5 drops you have, since they are all a bit slow and while I'm normally a fan of Zulaport Cutthroat not sure he fits here.
