My take on modern goblins take a look see if you get any idea's for improving your own Coming of the Goblin Horde
Okay ummmm why dont people use Mogg Sentry.... for the life of me i dont know why...
Probably because you only get the boost on their turn which isn't that good when you are playing an overly aggressive deck like this. (I know he would get pumped by instants but still, letting an opponent choose when to give a creature a buff isn't all that great here.)
Mogg Sentry for reference.
I know it's on the expensive side but I see no reason other than price why Cavern of Souls isn't here. You won't be casting Searing Blaze T2 so non-creature RR isn't something that you need to worry about. I'm assuming it's because of budget?
It's part budget and part wanting to be able to cast instants and sorceries on turn 2 if needed for removal.
Playing Legion Loyalist on turn 2 seems really bad.
The budget reason is likely what will keep it out of the deck.
23 lands sounds absolutely awful in this deck. I can play nearly anything with 2 mana, and I have a 64% chance of hitting my third Mountain on turn 3 to play Goblin Chieftain . Playing any more lands increases my chances of stalling the early turns by drawing too many lands.
That sounds fine if you're making Goblin tokens, but that's more EDH-worthy than competitive Modern :-)
Definitely going to try Flingin' it in some limited format. :D
And I agree that 20 lands here is probably the sweet spot with such an incredibly low mana curve. In fact, I'd be worried about emptying my hand by turn 3 then going into top-deck mode for the rest of the game. Maybe Dangerous Wager for such occasions?
You still running this as your main modern goblin deck man? My fiancee is interested in a good solid modern goblin deck and was going to point her here.
If you were to build a modern goblins how would you do it?
You. Are. Useless. :P...Fineeeee I'll do more digging haha.
is simply fantastic in a deck like this.
