Than you, Stephencliffe and SlimJim83!!

I will swap Collateral Damage for Lightning Strike, and see how I feel about it.

I don't have many Reckless Bushwhackers but I will try putting some more as son as I get them.

Outnumber is in the side deck instead of the main deck because most players I play against have a horde of small creatures or don't have creatures at all, I really like that card tho.

About Goblin Rabblemaster: I can't decide if I put him or not, because he turns Goblin Piledriver in a suicide when both are in the battlefield, but he could be good for when I don't draw Goblin Piledriver.

Thank y'all for the suggestions!!

I noticed that Goblin Rabblemaster isn't in the mainboard. He's great, I would mainboard him. Not sure why you only have two Reckless Bushwhacker, as it's definitely one of the best cards in the deck.

Collateral Damage isn't very good. The way your deck wins is mainly through attacking early and often. 3 damage in exchange for an attacker that can be a recurring threat, even if it's just a 1/1, isn't a great tradeoff. You're trying to make Goblin Piledriver and Goblin Rabblemaster too big to overcome, you need as many creatures as possible for that.

Other than that, I would for sure run Outnumber in the mainboard. It's good against any deck that has creatures, and control isn't huge in frontier. Hope this helps, great to see someone running goblins in frontier. Good luck!

I love mono-red, Have a couple suggestions

Most important - Chaos Warp - its the only way shy of putting in a Scour from Existence that you can get rid of enchantments

Less important - Descent of the Dragons - Nothing better than changing all your goblin tokens into Dragons. Hellion Eruption also works but then you lose your named guys as well. Note that dragons will enter with summoning sickness, so will need some way to combat that, like Reckless Bushwhacker's surge or In the Web of War

Hi,at first i love goblin decks an play it too. How good work this list?

What I think, Legion Loyalist must in main deck, he is not so stron as a first drop like Foundry Street Denizen, but he harmonizes in midgame better whit your other goblins, especially white Goblin Piledriver.

Warren Instigator its strong but slow, when uyou play him use his strange to cast Krenko, Mob Boss or Siege-Gang Commander.

Reckless Bushwhacker its good bus not so good like Goblin Bushwhacker. To cast him for his surge coast you need to cast another card befor, its possebel in turn three or four, but in this stadium in game I am most in topdeck modus.

You dont need the green splash, your landbase coast too much live, better play 4 Mutavault. Ancient Grudge can destroy 2 artefacs, sure its good but white green splash its Destructive Revelry better, yes its bubry only one artefact but its deald damage. Or play Smash to Smithereens or Shatterstorm in a only red list.

Blood Moon its so good and its synergizes so good with Goblin King (King its only as one of in SB, I like him but its not for everyone).

Whats is with your gravehate?

For final touches on the optimization, I was thinking of adding Reckless Bushwhacker, Skirk Drill Sergeant, Goblin Tinkerer, arguing Blasphemous Act, Outpost Siege and Hanweir Battlements.

Thoughts and what to cut for any of the 7? Thanks for all the help,btw. I'm trying to fill out the t3 list.

Way I see it, Naya Humans is probably the best way to go. You've got free humans. You've got bolt. You've got the good R/W humans. You've got lord effects.

First up, the land base could really do with tightening up. Fetches, shocks and basics, with 4 Cavern seem the ideal, as the ability to fetch up basics gives you some resilience to Blood Moon.

Not sold on Boros Elite. I think you are better off with a constant 2/1, such as Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip who becomes a 4/4. Soldier of the Pantheon as a generic 2/1 with some nice protection.

Silverblade Paladin is a bit lackluster as well, simply cause you turn off the double striking with...basically any removal spell. Mirran Crusader has protection from a lot of stuff you might see, and has double strike/same cost.

I think you want to max Bolt before you go up to 3 Boros Charm, and I think you want to max your gains from champion/mayor before you play rancors.

And it might not be a human, but Reckless Bushwhacker might be a better choice than Ghor-clan if you want to go wide.

Really nice deck! I love goblins!

Suggestions: Arms Dealer is a very good card to add because it helps with removal and only requires a goblin to use. Maybe take out Skirk Fire Marshal as it is a 5-drop and you already have enough win conditions.I would also replace the Goblin Lackey with Reckless Bushwhacker. You don't really need the lackey seeing as most of your creatures are very low mana and if you want to make this modern legal. Bushwacker can help close the game quickly and easily. If you don't want this to be modern legal, keeping the lackey is fine.

I really like this deck and I look forward to what you do with it in the future! :-)
