Favorite Formats: Limited Draft and Constructed limited (aka Cube).
Favorite Deck: probably my own ProcEspers.
Favorite Color: If it is not obvious from the colors of my username, I dislike red. My favorite color is black, closely followed by blue.
Favorite Guild: Dimir by far. Both flavor and gameplay for that guild are excellent.
Favorite Shard: Grixis Bolas lives on in our hearts!
Favorite Wedge: Sultai - I like the mechanics of that guild a lot and they have coolest leaders.
Card that best represents you: Venser, Shaper Savant is my favorite card and its abilities are how I like to play the game and express my individuality within it.
Hobbies Outside of Magic: Board games - I have a sizeable collection of several dozen titles. AMA about board games!
Tell us about your life outside of TappedOut: Is there such a thing?
How did you come up with your username? - Boza is a popular Bulgarian fermented drink with very low alcohol content, popular with kids and adults alike. It is also a slang term for mess.
What first appealed to you about Magic? - A friend introduced me to Magic with two Extended decks more than a decade ago, playing tron versus goblins. The game had a very nice artwork and detail, while featuring sleek gameplay with cool combinations of cards.
Why is Magic important to you now? - A way to get together with friends and play occassionally competitively and chat about on TO.
What are your thoughts on the current metagame (any format)? - I think that Modern has got a bit too stale, Legacy and Pauper are experiencing a Renaissance, while Pioneer and Standard are too new to be evaluated.
Are there any cards or strategies you feel overcentralize the metagame? - What a bold question. The meta is defined by the speed of the format, so the best aggro and/or combo decks dictate the meta. A meta with Goblin Guide will always be faster than a meta with Raging Goblin.
How do you deal with a dominant new deck, card, and/or player in your pod? - Oh, apperantly the last question was about Commander. Still gave a relevant answer. Varying my deck would be best - for example, having a toolbox of cards for cards in a deck to metagame with will allow you to freshen up your playing experience without switching commanders.
What is your approach to deckbuilding? - Start with the goal or theme in mind. If you cannot state in a single sentence how you want to win and how to get there, you cannot start to deckbuild. "My Muldrotha, the Gravetide deck will durdle and control the boardstate, until it is able to win with a large Villainous Wealth." or "My Saskia the Unyielding will have only legendary creatures in it."
Share with us some of your favorite decks by others on TappedOut you feel are underappreciated/underrated. - I am rarely looking at other people's decks unless they are similar to the one I am currently building. As generally awesome creator, I will have to highlight Gattison who does amazing work with commons in MTG.
Are there any future releases you’re looking forward to? Why or why not? - Honestly, not really. Magic design has felt a bit stale, especially from a Limited perspective. That is why I said "I am making my own Magic!" and delved into Custom cards creation. I invite everyone to join the Ability Challenge

Oh, I see what you mean now about Siege-Gang with Lackey.
I bought Sigil of Sleep as soon as Looked at it. Goblin Fireslinger will be finding its way back into the deck. I’m thinking Raging Goblin for Fireslinger. Even though it would slow down my deck a little more. It feels like it would be better in the long run though.
This is what I’m thinking now...
4x Goblin Fireslinger
3x Sigil of sleep
1x Goblin Grenade
1x Black Vise
I’m thinking I need 4x Vise for the best odds of pulling it first hand. I was going to take 1x Vise out before.
Thank you DreadKhan for all your help and feedback.

Liliana69X, Legion Loyalist ’s ability is situational whereas Fervent Champion ’s first strike is unconditional. You might be able to get three creatures out consistently, but there’s always the chance one of you creatures gets removed before the start of combat which means your Legion Loyalist is no better than a Raging Goblin at that point. The other thing to note is the wasted potential that comes with having a Battalion of two or more Legion Loyalists, because if they were Fervent Champion s instead you’d be trading trample with more damage and better defenses as 2-power first strike will get you through more combat steps than 1-power first strike.
Whether it’s Noble Hierarch or Birds of Paradise , Fanatical Firebrand isn’t the only end-all-be-all card to answer them as Searing Blaze and Searing Blood make for a much better tempo play and Gutshot out of the sideboard works better with Monastery Swiftspear on the draw too. You might delay them a turn with Fanatical Firebrand , but you are also delaying yourself a turn if you got to use your only creature card as spot removal. Also don’t forget that Fanatical Firebrand isn’t going to be saving you from anything if they play a turn 1 Gilded Goose instead.

First thought: Goblin Guide is stronger than Raging Goblin . You might give your opponets an occasional extra land, but you should be winning before that becomes a problem. It's not a cheap card, though.
Second: Goblin Bushwhacker and Reckless Bushwhacker come down faster than Goblin Warchief and Goblin Chieftain while offering a lot of the same benefits. Four copies of each of those is the core of the 8-Whack deck, a solid Modern Goblin deck. It's reasonably customizable and very wallet-friendly, as far as Modern decks go.

By the way: Toothy, Imaginary Friend might be good here if you don't intend to visit tournaments.
