SirChris39, thank you. I appreciate that. The most important goblins to include are as follows: Goblin Recruiter, Goblin Ringleader, Skirk Prospector, and Goblin Chirurgeon. Also include protection, haste enablers, and untappers of your choice. Lightning Greaves and Thousand-Year Elixir are notable in that they fulfill multiple needs at once. I hope this helps you brew!

He may seem pricey, but with Skirk Prospector he can come out turn 3: Muxus, Goblin Grandee can change a game, especially if running all creatures. That is a different direction to the deck, however.

Some fun combos that can be a little janky:

Damage and life-gain combo

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Thornbite Staff + Sling-Gang Lieutenant. Tap Kiki with thornbite equipped to make copies of Lieutenant, sacrifice the tokens to untap with Thornbite, repeat for a damage and life-gain combo.

The same basic combo can be done in four parts using Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Thornbite Staff + token producer + sac outlet such as Skirk Prospector or Goblin Bombardment

Infinite reanimation (during upkeep)= Hell's Caretaker + Thornbite Staff + Genesis Chamber/Desecrated Tomb (or a reanimation target that ETBs with fodder such as Myr Battlesphere) + Initial Sac Fodder

Phostration- That's a good question that deserves an in-depth answer. I admit, Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin sounds good at first glance; and I admittedly, ran 2x of Kingpin in this in a prototyoe version. I took him out for several reasons.

First, the speed of the deck rarely allows for more than 3-4 goblins at a time. Goblin Grenade, Collateral Damage, Skirk Prospector, and the unavoidable dogpile-style blocking, keep the number of multiply-able targets rather low.

Second, the archetype. This is more of a burn style deck, and doesn't allow room for necessary pump cards. Therefore, the value from aggro, and (most importantly) the survivability of Kingpin are minimalized. Making this 3-cost goblin without Haste, an ill fit for this particular Tribal-goblin, burn build.

Hope that clears it up for ya! Thanks for the upvote and a great question!! Play on!

Hey, for the low budget good job for your first Commander deck.

Consider a Goblin and Dragon theme? This would give your overall deck a more focused theme instead of just playing random creatures such as Diregraf Ghoul and Spinal Centipede. I suggest this because when Kolaghan attacks she pumps any creatures you control and Goblins can make lots of token creatures. This kind of strategy is call go wide. Which means attacking with lots of creatures, a wide battlefield of creatures.

Cards to consider adding:

Other Draw/Tutors

Other Ramp

Other Dragons

Other Goblins

Other Removal

Other Lands

Good luck with your deck.

You can replace Dark-Dweller Oracle for Mogg Fanatic or have both if you like as well.

Oracle allows you to just play your whole deck if you wanted with the infinite that you get from Skirk Prospector and your infinite snoops :)

I've been playing a variation of your list for about a year now and fell in love ever since. At first I was not convinced about snoop until realizing the combo!

Snoop Combo (Basically a mono red Doomsday) : Goblin Recruiter + Some piece of draw, e.g. Insolent Neonate + A lot of mana, RRRR or more.

Play the Goblin Recruiter, getting Dark-Dweller Oracle, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Skirk Prospector, Torch Courier or Goblin Chieftan, and Conspicuous Snoop. Put them on the top of your library, first card on the bottom of the pile and going up

Some cards we can cut to fit in the Fanatic Snoop Combo and Kiki Snoop combo are:

Cards to add for the combos:

Time to playtest! :)

Let me know what you think.

Maybe make it rakdos to run Munitions Expert, Wort, Boggart Auntie, and Sling-Gang Lieutenant. Also probably run Skirk Prospector
