My spoilers in the comment above arnt working for me so im trying something different. "If you want to sift through some cards you can look at each section, but I would recommend just looking at the first grouping to start with, as I went a bit too far with the other lists. Those lists are fine to just look at ideas or "good cards" but there are far too many to call them suggestions.

GhostChieftain on Why Does Everyone Use Boggart ...

In addition to what Caerwyn said, another thing that is mildly relevant is that Goblin Matron , Goblin Recruiter , and Boggart Harbinger can all tutor Boggart Birth Rite , and it is relevant to Sensation Gorger , Auntie's Hovel , and Goblin Ringleader .

A bit of redundancy is pretty good.

kamarupa, I also thought of using those cards for the deck to have alternative combo options, but I was having difficulty making it work so I stopped giving it more thought. I'll definitely reconsider making room for them in the deck now.

As for Impact Tremors. I realize that I can combo off earlier with it but I can't tutor it up with the Boggart Harbingers. I'd only be able to use the Idyllic Tutors. I can try and toss in a 1 of.

I already have goblins that make my goblins cheaper though, Goblin Warchief and Frogtosser Banneret both make my goblins cheaper, and I can tutor for them with Goblin Matron and Boggart Harbinger

Hey there! Cool brew! I would strongly recommend adding Lightning Bolt, as it's one of the best cards in Modern, both for removal and for killing your opponent when the game goes long. Boggart Harbinger seems a little weak, though, so I'd recommend taking it out, as well as maybe take it out for Bolt.

I've played B Goblins and R Goblins for ages. Been wanting to mix them for ages - seems like a lot of fun!

Marsh Flitter (for the theme of the deck) would be a great addition in helping the revolt trigger of Fatal Push for a low cost of sacrificing a Token, Festering Goblin or a Shambling Goblin and, perhaps, getting rid of a creature on the opponents side of the battlefield in the process. That is, of course, if you run 4x Shambling Goblin instead of 4x Festering Goblin; since Festering Goblin needs a legal target that can, accidentally, hit your own creatures if the opponent has none (there is no "may" in the the rules text) - whereas Shambling Goblin's ability fizzles if there is no legal target (if the opponent has no creatures the ability can't trigger).

However, there is a cheaper alternative in Nantuko Husk which can easily pump itself out of reach of various burn spells by sacrificing one or more creatures. Though it sadly isn't a goblin nor is "goblin" in its rules text :(

The above mentioned sacrifice engines does synergize quite well with the cards HurricaneZach suggested as well (especially with Wort, Boggart Auntie and Boggart Shenanigans)

TIP: (If possible, wanted or necessary) - as you cast Boggart Mob aim its Champion ability at Boggart Harbinger as it will make Boggart Harbinger's ability trigger again as Boggart Mobb leaves the battlefield :)
