Goblin Assault [Super Budget Aggro]

Modern Aggro Budget Goblins Mono-Red Tribal



Very cheap (for now about 50 bucks) mono-red Goblin deck mostly from cards I had for a long time unused.
Suggestions, comments and +1 are welcome if you like this deck

Bolt instead of strike, Shared Animosity or similar is usually the finisher for this kind of deck, as it stands quest mainboard, replace the ember haulers, a mountain with more dragon fodder, Consider Goblin Piledriver, Goblin Rabblemaster (which will hopefully drop in price with the new set's release- we can hope -) and Warren Instigator For more budget options, something like Banners Raised and titan's strengths or similar.Hope this helps, goblins have a lot of funstuff out there, the trick is rounding off the edges

thanks for help and some ideas, the point is they are all great and I had them in mind, but also I tried to make "Super Budget" Goblins...
The only card that I can also put here for more raw power could be Lightning Bolt or Goblin Rabblemaster if its price would drop to like 2-3 bucks. But for now I put cards that I or my friends have and they are like "you can pay anything" or "take them for free".
I also wonder if there is something else, that I can use instead of Ember Hauler...
Brute Force is here because it acts as "Anti-Bolt" for hard-hitters like Mardu Scout and power boost for any other not blocked Goblin.
Anyway thanks for advice and I hope you like this deck :)

Krenko, Mob Boss is awesome but Goblin Warchief and/or Goblin Chieftain are just about a must have.

From all these ideas Goblin Chieftain seems like the best one, although this deck is made to be extreme budget version ($36 for now). Maybe in future I'll include this card :)
Anyway, thanks for advice and hope you like this deck.

Goblin Piledriver should be dirt cheap right now because of its reprinting in in Origins, right?

Yeah, I think goblin piledriver is better than rabble master since he's cheaper and doesn't make you kill your team when you don't want to. I'd also add Reckless Bushwhacker. You could probably take out goblin wardriver which just gets blocked and killed really easily if he doesn't eat a kill spell first

Yeah !!! A goblin deck ! I have one myself and it is really good, I won a few FNM with it. Here it is : Ru goblins fast raid. As you can see, I play with some non-conventional cards, like Signal Pest. It make some wonders in the deck, it is another one drop that boost your team while being more difficult to kill, because of his evasion ability. So, I strongly suggest you to remove your Goblin Wardriver and replace them by Signal Pest. Also, I am not a big fan of Brute Force, Mardu Scout and Impact Tremors. If you draw Impact Tremors late in the game it is a dead card. So, I would remove it and put Reckless Bushwhacker. Goblin Chieftain is simply awesome when you plat lots of goblins, like in your deck. I would put it instead of Mardu Scout. As for Brute Force, I would take it out and put some Mogg War Marshal. The card is really good and let you have multiple triggers on the Foundry Street Denizen.

Sensation Gorger?, w Goblin Ruinblaster SB ? Goblin Bushwhacker rather than reckless.

Goblin Bushwhacker is better than the reckless, but I would also play with two of the reckless since their effect is similar and so strong. As for the ruinblaster, four mana is too much for decks with only 18 lands, and if you really want to destroy lands, there is some spells that only cost three mana (Blood Moon (ok ok, I know it is not a budget option, but it is really good), Peak Eruption, Stone Rain, etc.). Finally, for the Sensation Gorger, I think that he is a little bit slow and requires too much condition. Normally, your plan with a goblin deck is to kill your opponent quickly, and the gorger will not help you to achieve this goal.
