Goblin War Party might be better than Rally the Peasants , also maybe add Goblin Bushwhacker for extra haste.

First, I think you've done everything okay. This forum is probably the most appropriate, and your terminology is used correctly. You can format cards by putting double brackets around the card name. Goblin Chieftain . See below.

[[Goblin chieftain]]

And you can do mana symbols similarly. .


To answer your question, I need to ask another first. Do you want to play midrange goblins or aggro goblins? Because those are completely different decks. Aggro plays Goblin Bushwhacker , Foundry Street Denizen , and Goblin Grenade . Midrange plays Goblin Matron and Goblin Ringleader .

Yeah we kinda got screwed over, but I think I did pretty okayish for a start.

Only reason Ash Barrens isn't in is because its basically Evolving Wilds that can make mana in the late game. As you can probably imagine for a t4 average deck like this, that's far less of a concern, so I save the cash on em. I may switch em out in a future variant.

I did try Goblin Bushwhacker . It was 4 in the main for the longest time, but eventually got cut due to consistency issues. The double red is super rough, especially for a non-ally.

I refuse to believe the deck is fully optimized until I get it competitively viable. There's very few decks I build that I see potential in, and this is one of em.

Thanks for your comment brah. If you get any other ideas, feel free to let me know.

The really poopy thing about Allies in Pauper is that Wizards didn't print a ton of pushed Allies in the common slot. Because of that, we only have access to like a third of the selection of Allies ever printed, which not only limits your options but limits the value of the Ally synergy as well. For example, you don't get to play with Hada Freeblade and Kazandu Blademaster , two absolutely insane cards for the Ally tribe.

As far as a Jund Allies list goes in Pauper, I feel like this is the most optimized you can get. Though I'll provide a few suggestions in case some cards haven't come to mind.

I'm a huge proponent of playing Ash Barrens in a 3-color deck as it can instantly find a Snow-Covered land for you. Hell, I even play it in 2-color decks. Is there a reason it's not in this list? Or am I missing something?

If you're trying to go more of the aggro route I'd suggest Goblin Bushwhacker as another Akoum Battlesinger effect but you've likely already thought of it.

Instead of working around with sacrifice for mana, it is possible to use etb or death mana to pull off your combo.

You can use Memnite , Burning-Tree Emissary and Priest of Urabrask as your creatures, and Altar of Dementia or Blasting Station as the 3rd combo piece.

Doing it this way would allow you to put Reckless Bushwhacker and/or Goblin Bushwhacker in the sideboard, and turn into a bad 8-whack deck for when the opponent inevitably brings in graveyard and other hate, and you know your combo can't do it.

But, this does slow your deck down by a turn.

Here is the updated version! it has the additions you suggested, Goblin Bushwhacker , Reckless Bushwhacker , Goblin Grenade , some cards similar to Lightning Bolt , and substitutes for certain red cards.

It plays really well with great consistancy. I really appreciate your help Caerwyn and legendofa!

Thanks again!

Since it looks like you're moving toward a pure Goblin build, removing the Black/Zombies all together, I'll make suggestions based on that assumption.

Goblins like to fly low to the ground and hit your opponents as hard and fast as possible. The traditional goblin deck is known as 8-wack, since it runs 4x Reckless Bushwhacker and 4x Goblin Bushwhacker . Both of those are fantastic cards, since they can both swing on the turn they are played and boost all your creatures by +1/0. They are both relatively inexpensive, so should be fairly easy upgrades to get a hold of.

Otherwise, you want to focus less on the high-end creatures, and more on inexpensive-to-cast cards that can finish out the game. Some other inexpensive options include Mogg War Marshal (which is a strict upgrade to Goblin Instigator ), Burning-Tree Emissary (which, while not a goblin, is basically a free-to-cast 2/2), and Foundry Street Denizen (which will always swing for 2, and sometimes for 3+ on turn 2).

Other cards worth running are Goblin Grenade --5 damage is an incredible amount for just one mana and a fodder creature--and Lightning Bolt , which is also a solid kill/burn spell.


Cards can be linked using double brackets, like so: [[Goblin Grenade]]

I think you’re running too many high-casting-cost cards. Modern is a fast format, so cmc 4 and 5 cards are a rarity anyway (midrange decks run a max of 2-6). And goblins are meant to be even faster than most decks, as their advantage of speed and numbers is best in the early game.

I think you should drop almost all your 4 and 5 drop cards, in favour of more cheaper-casting options.

Stuff like Munitions Expert , Goblin Bushwhacker and Reckless Bushwhacker come to mind, but honestly there are loads of amazing goblins at the 1-3cmc range, so find what appeals most for you.
