Warren Instigator Discussion

Chancellor of the Forge out for Goblin Goliath. Chancellor has higher burst potential, but only if you already have a good boardstate. The 1/1 at the beginning of the game is negligible, and you always have to hardcast it. Goliath can be freecast off of a Goblin Lackey, Warren Instigator, or Moggcatcher. It is also a huge, un-boltable body, with a nicely costed, repeatable damage doubler tied to it. Just all around a great card for EDH.

Anvil of Bogardan out for Legion Warboss. While I liked the draw of the Anvil, always pitching a card was rough without recursion, but moreso than that skipping the discard phase means everyone has no max hand size. This ended up being a huge liability. Warboss isn't great, but it's a steady token generator that is pretty cheap. The choice was pretty much between him or Goblin Assassin, and I'm not ready to put Assassin back in yet, as the coin flipping draws 10x more hate than the removal actually does.

Seems solid, here is a few other cards you might consider for this Ash Zealot, Goblin Glory Chaser, Goblin Cohort, Zurgo Bellstriker, Warren Instigator, and Scab-Clan Berserker.

Hello! As for me I would add something to boost your Goblins. Metallic Mimic or Adaptive Automaton maybe? And don't forget about Warren Instigator - this guy is insane in Goblin tribal.

I would suggest focusing on having large numbers of low cost Goblins and ones with utility rather than big ones. Battle Squadron, Voracious Dragon, and Berserkers' Onslaught could be cut.

You might cut some of the anthems, or just play more efficient ones. Vanquisher's Banner gives card draw which is really helpful for this deck. Adaptive Automaton is worth a shot as a 2 CMC Goblin lord. Goblin King gives mountainwalk which could be relevant in multiplayer games. The new Goblin Trashmaster is a lord that also provides artifact removal. Ogre Battledriver and In the Web of War give haste and also pump your Goblins, so could replace Hammer of Purphoros.

Goblin Lackey and Warren Instigator can put into play any Goblin from your hand. Goblin Chirurgeon can protect Krenko. Sensation Gorger and Slate of Ancestry provide more wheeling.

Mana Echoes could be good to generate mana whenever you make or play Goblins, and also goes infinite with Umbral Mantle or Sword of the Paruns on Krenko if you would include those in your deck. Thornbite Staff can untap Krenko for free whenever a Goblin dies, so it goes infinite with any sac outlet. Ashnod's Altar is another good one.

Glorious! +1! Love the spirit guide and King's Moon! As our beloved gobbos are ironically slow in modern, you might have fun testing some more immediate threats:

-2 Chandra, Torch of Defiance / -2 Mogg War Marshal

+2 Krenko, Mob Boss / +2-4 Warren Instigator

Both would go swimmingly with the lord buffs, and Instigator gets trample from Legion Loyalist...

I feel like this deck is trying to be mid-rangey, which is totally fine, but Foundry Street Denizen doesn't exactly fit into mid-range goblins. The same could almost be said for Goblin Piledriver.

Frenzied Goblin, and Intimidator Initiate would increase the chance that your Goblins will survive an attack.

Goblin Bushwhacker, Legion Loyalist, Goblin Wardriver, Mogg War Marshal, and Warren Instigator would all help ramp up your damage.

Mardu Scout gives you a repeated creature EOTB trigger. Can be quite valuable with a Soul Warden in play.

I'd highly suggest adding Impact Tremors, to give you more EOTB utility with your mass of tokens. Purphoros, God of the Forge is another option for that affect.

Also, this is not a deck where it's possible to run 12 lands. You'll want to run 18 at a minimum if you're playing a 4 cost spell. Every hand won't have Skirk Prospector, and Skirk Prospector is only good if you've got enough mana to play your token generators.

Deck looks real fun, but it needs to decide between aggro and mid-range. You definitely need to up the land count, as Skirk Prospector doesn't cut it as a land replacement.

Warren Instigator seems like a very hopeful card - it's a 1/1 creature, and I couldn't see any way to make it attack in turn 2, and which deck doesn't have some way of dealing with a 1/1 (2/2 if you have a lord in play) attacker by turn 3?

Goblin Chieftain is a lot better than Goblin King, in my opinion. Sure, mountainwalk can be a thing, if you draw a Blood Moon, and resolve it, and get to have some goblins too.

Why no Goblin Bushwhacker or Mogg War Marshal? War mashal, in particular, is funny with Goblin Grenade.
