SMASHER101 that's the amazing thing about a Sideboard.

If Transgress the Mind is hopeless against your Opponent, you take it out and put something like an extra Languish in.

Although, interestingly, Transgress the Mind is EXACTLY what you want for 4 Whack, as it can remove Reckless Bushwhacker from hand, before it is able to do its damage.

You need more goblins that flail arms like Reckless Bushwhacker with a description like that.

Instead of working around with sacrifice for mana, it is possible to use etb or death mana to pull off your combo.

You can use Memnite , Burning-Tree Emissary and Priest of Urabrask as your creatures, and Altar of Dementia or Blasting Station as the 3rd combo piece.

Doing it this way would allow you to put Reckless Bushwhacker and/or Goblin Bushwhacker in the sideboard, and turn into a bad 8-whack deck for when the opponent inevitably brings in graveyard and other hate, and you know your combo can't do it.

But, this does slow your deck down by a turn.

Here is the updated version! it has the additions you suggested, Goblin Bushwhacker , Reckless Bushwhacker , Goblin Grenade , some cards similar to Lightning Bolt , and substitutes for certain red cards.

It plays really well with great consistancy. I really appreciate your help Caerwyn and legendofa!

Thanks again!

Since it looks like you're moving toward a pure Goblin build, removing the Black/Zombies all together, I'll make suggestions based on that assumption.

Goblins like to fly low to the ground and hit your opponents as hard and fast as possible. The traditional goblin deck is known as 8-wack, since it runs 4x Reckless Bushwhacker and 4x Goblin Bushwhacker . Both of those are fantastic cards, since they can both swing on the turn they are played and boost all your creatures by +1/0. They are both relatively inexpensive, so should be fairly easy upgrades to get a hold of.

Otherwise, you want to focus less on the high-end creatures, and more on inexpensive-to-cast cards that can finish out the game. Some other inexpensive options include Mogg War Marshal (which is a strict upgrade to Goblin Instigator ), Burning-Tree Emissary (which, while not a goblin, is basically a free-to-cast 2/2), and Foundry Street Denizen (which will always swing for 2, and sometimes for 3+ on turn 2).

Other cards worth running are Goblin Grenade --5 damage is an incredible amount for just one mana and a fodder creature--and Lightning Bolt , which is also a solid kill/burn spell.


Cards can be linked using double brackets, like so: [[Goblin Grenade]]

I think you’re running too many high-casting-cost cards. Modern is a fast format, so cmc 4 and 5 cards are a rarity anyway (midrange decks run a max of 2-6). And goblins are meant to be even faster than most decks, as their advantage of speed and numbers is best in the early game.

I think you should drop almost all your 4 and 5 drop cards, in favour of more cheaper-casting options.

Stuff like Munitions Expert , Goblin Bushwhacker and Reckless Bushwhacker come to mind, but honestly there are loads of amazing goblins at the 1-3cmc range, so find what appeals most for you.

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.

Good luck!
