Sengir Autocrat and Marsh Flitter produce tokens in black, along with the more expensive Ophiomancer and Bitterblossom

Nim Deathmantle I found is very strong. Works with Marsh Flitter and Ashnod's Altar for an infinite sac outlet triggers. Also any black creature, with Ashnod's Altar and Ogre Slumlord or Requiem Angel and Teysa, Orzhov Scion. Also works without Teysa if you have both Ogre Slumlord or Requiem Angel, or any extra token producer, like Field of Souls. Infinite mana can also be made with Nether Traitor, alongside Carnival of Souls, a sac outlet, and a Soul Sister effect (Soul Warden). I feel if you are running Triskelion you should also run Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, because some times you need to cheese that guy who plays Zur. Anyway, spicy Teysa build!

In my opinion, Necrogenesis, Sanguine Bond, Marsh Flitter, Augur of Skulls are probably your worst cards. Also, Sakura-Tribe Elder is likely better than Farseek in your list. You could also replace Kodama's Reach and Cultivate with Wood Elves and Farhaven Elf.

I would consider Zulaport Cutthroat, since you have Blood Artist. If you plan on doing a sacrifice/Aristocrats subtheme, definitely throw in Dictate of Erebos/Grave Pact, as well as some of the classic sac outlets(Vampiric Rites, Goblin Bombardment, etc.)

Since you plan on cheating mana cost, Siege-Gang Commander is strictly better than Beetleback Chief. Marsh Flitter is also an option.

It looks like Grenzo is usually going to be cast for 3, so Wort, Boggart Auntie could get you some extra graveyard value. Depending on how many goblins you usually have out, Skirk Fire Marshal could be a decent big red button.

@ThisIsTheSix: The deck is looking better! :) And I am happy to see that you added Marsh Flitter - It is a great card indeed, and it also has the benefit of having its CMC lowered by Frogtosser Banneret. Now I simply have to make a similar deck for shits'n'giggles ;) Cheers!

Logics & HurricaneZach I was already thinking to add that card. I'll look into it to do what I can swap it for ;) No offense HurricaneZach but im trying to avoid red (goblin) creatures in this deck. Im trying to be different from other :)

JacobBaekgaard I really like Marsh Flitter although it isn't a goblin it would fit in here! Didnt know about the difference between Shambling Goblin & Festering Goblin so thanks for clearing that out ;) About Nantuko Husk I'll rather play Marsh Flitter because it's better in my opinion.

Thanks again everyone for helping! Ik really appreciate it!

I've played B Goblins and R Goblins for ages. Been wanting to mix them for ages - seems like a lot of fun!

Marsh Flitter (for the theme of the deck) would be a great addition in helping the revolt trigger of Fatal Push for a low cost of sacrificing a Token, Festering Goblin or a Shambling Goblin and, perhaps, getting rid of a creature on the opponents side of the battlefield in the process. That is, of course, if you run 4x Shambling Goblin instead of 4x Festering Goblin; since Festering Goblin needs a legal target that can, accidentally, hit your own creatures if the opponent has none (there is no "may" in the the rules text) - whereas Shambling Goblin's ability fizzles if there is no legal target (if the opponent has no creatures the ability can't trigger).

However, there is a cheaper alternative in Nantuko Husk which can easily pump itself out of reach of various burn spells by sacrificing one or more creatures. Though it sadly isn't a goblin nor is "goblin" in its rules text :(

The above mentioned sacrifice engines does synergize quite well with the cards HurricaneZach suggested as well (especially with Wort, Boggart Auntie and Boggart Shenanigans)

TIP: (If possible, wanted or necessary) - as you cast Boggart Mob aim its Champion ability at Boggart Harbinger as it will make Boggart Harbinger's ability trigger again as Boggart Mobb leaves the battlefield :)
