I didn't have major issues with the mana base, if you have lands to provide in the first turns you're in good shape, from there we can play the game, red is mostly a splash for Lightning Bolt and Terminate and a couple of sideboard cards.

But that is a pretty good suggestions, i think i will try 4 of those instead of the Evolving Wilds, that way i can play 1 or 2 more ETB tapped dual lands, i will try it out for sure.

If you like to grind out games i think this a deck that may have the tools to do it without going for the mana.

Lightning Bolt is much better than Lightning Helix. Also, definitely Sacred Foundry is much better than Ghost Quarter and Boros Signet, and more Paths/Bolts would be better than 2 Wrath of God in MB.

DarkHamlet: I'm still on the fence about Unclaimed Territory . I need properly colored sources to cast Collected Company and Path to Exile and fetching for basics helps with Blood Moon. Hallowed Fountain works with my fetches, which is why it's here.

I like Lightning Bolt and will consider it. My only concern is that it will certainly strain my mana base. I can't imagine switching to Unclaimed Territory and keeping both Bolt and CoCo.

I love Harabaz Druid, I built this version of the deck to work with her very well. I don't know if she was the original ally that inspired me, but she still holds a special place in my heart. I want her to be happy and cozy here. Yes that may be irrational, but she's still a fantastic card. She can also win games very fast.

I suggest Unclaimed Territory is great here. Less shock, less fetchs. But a little less consistency for the Side.

Jwari Shapeshifter is not enought to justify Hallowed Fountain, I like here Lightning Bolt more than Path to Exile, or may be both, it depends on your metagame.

Harabaz Druid is not necessary if you want win quickly, because Damnation or Supreme Verdict

Great deck anyway!

DemonDragonJ on Horror Stories

I would not call this a horror story, but when the first Mirrodin block was released, I obtained a Sword of Fire and Ice, a Sword of Light and Shadow, an Auriok Champion, and a foil Death Cloud, but I either traded them or sold them, because I was new to the game at that time and had no way to know how valuable they would become, so I wish that I had kept them, to sell them for a profit.

Another regret that I have is that I never bought a textless promo Lightning Bolt when its price was low, and now, it is worth far more than I am willing to pay for it. On the opposite side of that, I bought a Primeval Titan for nearly $40 when that card was first released, and it is now worthy barely a quarter of that price.

To continue that subject, I purchased a copy of the 2007 promo version of Vindicate for $25, and, at one point, it was worth $100, at which point I definitely should have sold it, because it is now worth only $35, which is still more than what I paid for it, thankfully.

Fun deck! I too have a Goblin deck, so I know how fun they are to play! I have some tips regarding your cards if you're interested. You seem to have 62 cards in the deck, it's never a good idea to have more than 60 card - consistency is king! In general you want a curve that is as low as possible, since you need to keep a pressure all the time. If you don't win turn 4 or 5, you will probably loose the game.

The lands look good, what you need is red mana and you've got it. A tapped land can be dangerous since you need to keep a pressure! I'm trying to run Contested War Zone in my goblin deck, it's risky since it only produce colorless mana, but it's +1/0 ability can be game winning.

Card you can consider adding, price tag in (parenthesis):

Goblin Guide - (Expensive), but really good!

Foundry Street Denizen - Can get really big really quick, (cheap).

Legion Loyalist - Devastating against token heavy decks, first strike can be really good if your goblins are buffed. (Kind of expensive).

Goblin Piledriver - Get really big, game winner with Legion Loyalist's trample, (average price), well worth the cost!

Goblin Rabblemaster - Creates you a massive goblin army, constant pressure, one of these can totally dominate the battlefield, two of them wins you the game. Recently reprinted, so it's (cheap) for what it does. Great if Quest for the Goblin Lord.

Lightning Bolt - 4x.

Goblin Bushwhacker - One of the best one/two drops for goblins, (cheap).

Warren Instigator - Haven't tried myself but he can be really powerful. (Average).

Mogg War Marshal - I like it more than cards like Krenko's Command, since it gives you a bit more resistance against sweepers. It's also a great gobling to sacrifice for Goblin Grenade.

Goblin Wardriver

Additional card to consider, mainly for sideboard:

Smash to Smithereens or Vandalblast

Goblin King

Skullcrack

Cards I'd cut:

Obelisk of Urd - In my experience, Obelisk of Urd is rarely a good card aggro or modern in general. Too expensive, or forces you to not attack a turn if you want it early.

Boggart Shenanigans - Too expensive for what it does. If you want a similar effect I'd recommend Impact Tremors.

Arms Dealer - Too slow, isn't a threat in it's own.

Goblin Kaboomist - Too unreliable.

Bloodmark Mentor - Maybe worth it, but Legion Loyalist is strictly better.

Frenzied Goblin - There are better 1-drops.

Mogg Fanatic & Goblin Arsonist - Cut if you find better one drops to replace the with.

Fury Charm - Not really a good card.

Hope you appreciate the tips and make sure to ask if you have any questions!
