Goblin Assault [Budget Tribal Aggro]

Modern Aggro Budget Goblins Mono-Red Tribal



Quite cheap (for now about 70 bucks) mono-red Goblin deck mostly from cards I had for a long time unused + cards that helped this deck reach higher tier plays
Suggestions, comments and +1 are welcome if you like this deck
Also if you want to add this deck to your folder, give +1 first I appericiate that a lot :)




So finally as a reward for standing its ground I've decided to give this deck some new toys, namely Legion Loyalist and Frenzied Goblin and additional Goblin Chieftain to make this deck even more effective.
But still, main focus is also at keeping this deck quite cheap so I won't add Goblin Guide any time soon, unless it'll have another reprint - hope you understand my decision

Also made a little clean up, so you can add some new comments and I'll gladly answer all of them :)

Nice deck. I was thinking about making a similar mono-red deck, but instead of Goblins, I was going to use Minotaurs.What about having 4 Krenko's Command? I would like any chance to flood the battlefield with 1/1 goblins.

Mogg War Marshal is just better option - you get 2 creatures for 2 mana, sorcery speed - exactly like with Krenko's Command. Also you can use orignal Mogg to block and when it is killed you don't lose anything - it just replaces itself with 1/1 Goblin token :)
Moggs aren't that expensive but have way more value - I run single Command just to have 5 options like these (or should I say, almost like these)
So overall Mogg is strictly better and I'm glad that you like this deck

Bit of a late response but I've been looking for a budget modern deck and goblins are life. But, why didn't you add Krenko, Mob Boss to the roster? He gives you a ton of tokens every turn! He is slightly expensive but he can be devastating

Krenko, Mob Boss is generally better in decks that cheat on mana, like more competitive goblins using Warren Instigator.
Otherwise, I'd probably consider it as a 1-of in my 75, thanks for suggestion :)

Hi, my friend! I'm building something similar and i was considering Rigging Runner as a one drop with upsides. Have you tried it?

Rigging Runner might be good budget option but otherwise it's just too slow. Most of the time you throw goblins during MP1 because they have haste or give it to everyone. There are some that aren't doing this but have static effects that help others like Goblin Arsonist or Frenzied Goblin, while this guy just has First Strike and MIGHT come as 2/2.
Overall, this creature has too conditional ability in my opinion, that needs some preparation for it. But we are playing Goblin deck, 1-drops go on turn 1 :D (Goblin Bushwhacker is just a 2-drop)
Hope this helped and thanks for upvote :)

Yes, thanks. To be fair, i would play it over Goblin Arsonist which i don't like as much as Mogg Fanatic. But i understand its different utility, so i won't say that the Arsonist is an inferior or wrong choice. :)

Goblin Arsonist is just a pure budget option so in my opinion it can be freely customized.
For me it's just a placeholder for Goblin Guides and it's fun to blow him with Goblin Grenade xD
