Play Outmaneuver. That will allow you to swing in uncontested with Chandra and other stuff.

Woolly1: I've desperately wanted Outmaneuver to work for this deck, but unfortunately the exploding goblins don't do combat damage. The explosion damage is dealt during the Declare Blockers step, and not during the Combat Damage step, so it can't be redirected (at least not that way). Outmaneuver as an effect would be perfect, and is awesome thematically as well, but sadly Ib can't take advantage of it.
I've also checked to see if I could double-dip the damage, and have the explosions still hit the blockers, but have the power/toughness damage be Outmaneuvered to the player, and that can't be done either. The errata'd card text on Gatherer helps clarify where the hang up is. In order to send any damage to the player, combat damage has to first be created, and since it can only be created during the Combat Damage step, there's no damage to even "target" because none of the blocked Goblins exist anymore. Sad!

Edit: It Might Work, Just In A Different Way
While I know I can't transfer the 4 damage from the Ibsplosion over to the player, I believe I could have them deal both the combat value of their regular attack (1/1 most of the time) and explode on the blockers. I'm going to look into this! If it works, I will definitely run it again, I haven't had it in for almost a year and a half now.

Hi Liquidbeaver. When I saw your deck list here, it reminded me of Defensive Formation. While you cannot play that card with this deck, it might be worthwhile trying Outmaneuver within this list, provided that the rules allow stacking Outmaneuver's effect so it resolves first before Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician's "on block, sacrifice creature" trigger.
Good to see Ib is getting some love as a commander, even though he only has half a heart.

I definitely need to add Aurelia, True Conviction and Wound Reflection, just have to pick them up. I was also looking at Lone Wolf for the same reason you suggested Siege Behemoth and Outmaneuver; great cards for what I'm trying to do here.
I really like the idea of using Boros Reckoner, Spitemare -- and especially Arcbond with something like Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet in play -- to deal out damage on the defensive.
I have a Quietus Spike I could move to this, and also picked up a Scytheclaw recently but didn't run it after realizing the damage is not being dealt by the creature, so Saskia doesn't copy that damage. But then again, if I'm swinging at Saskia's target, they're taking a huge hit before Saskia deals her damage, so assuming the opponent as full life, I'd need 4 damage to get though with one source to double damage it's fatal: 28 (4x2+20) from combat, then 16 from Saskia. Hm, I'll have to playtest these and reconsider.
Great suggestions, thanks Rzepkanut!
