Hearthfire Hobgoblin Discussion

Hey there I noticed your deck here after scanning through decks similar to one I was editing.
I know you want more white mana symbols for the chroma effect on Springjack Shepherd but I just feel Consul's Lieutenant is good enough to replace one or two of the Hearthfire Hobgoblin. I love the double strike on a 2/2 but the 2/1 for 2 plus first strike Renown 1 and a great renown effect for a wide swing win con!
Let me know what you think.

easy build, get a typical gobs tribal, ya know with lords and pumpers all that jazz, plus youll need Goblin Grenades Goblin Guides. throw in some Hearthfire Hobgoblin, then you can add a Boros Reckoner as a strong beatdown agent, and for spice. then you fill it with bolts, and Lightning Helix and ya got yourself a kick ass boros goblins deck my friend! happy playing!

Very interesting deck idea you have going. And it looks like you've already got most of the expensive cards in the deck as you have now.
You asked for budget recommendations to make this deck better. Here are my thoughts.
Start by moving every non-basic land in your maybe board to your mainboard. I like the basic lands but I don't think you have enough color fixing in the deck and I can see situations where you might end up color screwed and not be able to play things. Additionally, uncounterable abilities like the Subhome can force your opponents to make descisions that they might otherwise not have to make.Also consider running 34 to 36 lands total so that you aren't missing land drops, especially in the early game.
Swap the Fork in the Road out for the Kodama's Reach in your maybe board. Loosing a land to the graveyard after searching for it seems like a waste in a deck where you are not focused on graveyard.
The Blood Mist looks kind of weak in this deck. I would swap it out for another creature. And unless you are just really that excited about the Exert mechanic, I would consider replaceing those creatures with things that re more efficient. The Exert mechanic might work in draft or Standard, but I don't think it is a good choice for Commander decks. Take a look at the folowing creatures and see if they would work for you.
Equipment mattters theme
Avacynian Missionaries Flip, Kor Duelist, Stone Haven Outfitter, Brass Squire, Kazuul's Toll Collector, Loxodon Punisher and Weapons Trainer
Double stike, bloodthirst, or trample to maximize the effects of the equipment
Marisi's Twinclaws or Hearthfire Hobgoblin, Scab-Clan Mauler, Skarrgan Pit-Skulk and many others.
Utility creatures that also help
Silklash Spider, Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile, Taurean Mauler, and Spikeshot Goblin. I know that some of these might be a bit weak, but I'm focusing on good and budget friendly. Vexing Shusher and Godsire may not be budget cards but they are not too expensive and could help out.
I hope these suggestions at lease give you some new ideas. Also, feel to take a look at my decks and let me know what you think. As always, temper these suggestions with your collection and your budget.

I've received a deck from a friend of mine who doesn't play anymore. I feel like this could be something I really want to play (Just for fun/casual play), but I also feel like there's a lot of room for fine-tuning. Would anyone mind giving some input on this deck list?

Agree with Gamerpg04 - too slow. You have lightning bolt as your only 1-drop. Also, you play a full set of an aura, in a deck with no hexproof creatures (that's a bit of a no-no). And none of your creatures have haste - they are actually not particularly fast. That is a problem, as you don't really have anything other than creatures that swings for damage. slow creatures means that your opponents either get to get a solid race on you (if they try to out-aggro you), or find answers to your threats (if they are controlling).
No need for Lightning Helix, except for match-ups where you end up racing. Speaking of racing: Hearthfire Hobgoblin isn't really a modern card. You play it on turn 3, attack on turn 4 for 4 damage. Compare to a Goblin Guide. It starts hitting by turn 1, and by the end of turn 4, it has hit for 8... for a third of the cost. It's not until turn 6 that the Hearthfire Hobgoblin overtakes the gobboguide.
I dunno - I'm not really a burn player, but this just seems too slow.

With so many of your creatures already naturally having double-strike (an it not being a stackable ability) I wouldn't say multiple of Duelist's Heritage is needed, but I could see taking out Slagstorm for a second Ride Down.
Slagstorm is one of those cards that is nice to have options with, but if you think you're going to need the board wipe, I'd much rather see Anger of the Gods in its place, and if you really want the security of an extra few damage to the face, i think Boros Charm offers more options in this case. So either way I'd recommend Slagstorm leave. Putting Ride Down in its place seems to fit nicely with the aggro approach you have going here.
A few more notes: Arashin Foremost, Iroas's Champion, and Hearthfire Hobgoblin are all basically the same card in this deck. Between them, you have 6 cards. Arashin Foremost is such a great card but it's also literally the only warrior you're running here, and with a double white in the mana cost, it's an unneeded restriction. I'd trade the two of her out for one of each of the other two. Giving you 4 Hobgoblins because they're the easiest to cast and the most likely to help you hit your devotion for Iroas.

But I have absolutely no idea what cards to pick from. My last concept contained creatures very scarcely.
