Goblin Chieftain Discussion

NinjaReaper90 on Krenko’s Goblin Tomfuckery

now as for this deck itself, i'd heavily recommend cutting Krenko, Mob Boss for Goblin Chieftain , trade Lavastep Raider for Goblin Piledriver , cut 4 mountain for Lightning Bolt , and trade the enchantments and Hordeling Outburst for 4 Krenko's Command and 4 Throne of the God-Pharaoh

My goblins usually tap em out by turn 4, Foundry Street Denizen is a champ especially with Goblin Piledriver . Goblin Chieftain helps get Krenko, Mob Boss for t4 goblin cranks, I back mine up with Lightning Bolt + Flame Slash + Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle .

Mob boss is great, but I usually get Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin out and working a turn sooner.

Embercleave is a good add too if your looking for more umph.

a general rule of thumb i follow for lands is that if everything costs 3 or less, 20 lands is fine. if i'm using cmc 4 cards, i run 24 lands. if i'm using anything that costs 5 or more, i use 24 lands plus ramp.

honestly, you don't have nearly enough token makers to make Emmara Tandris worth it. same thing with counter makers and Evolution Sage .

you generally won't want lands that enter tapped. if budget isnt a concern, you want fetchlands like Windswept Heath , shock lands like Temple Garden , and check lands like Sunpetal Grove .

i don't see any real removal in the deck, and thats going to be crucial if you want to live long enough to cast spells with cmc 5 or higher. Path to Exile is pretty much your best option in GW.

too few of your creatures actually have the "elephant" creature type to actually call this an elephant deck.

when building a tribal deck, you need cares that actually care about creature type. otherwise you could be running the same strategy more effectively using other creatures. usually these cards come in the form of "lords" like Elvish Champion or Goblin Chieftain , but it could also be something like Commune with Dinosaurs . your deck doesn't really have anything like this, so i'd recommend Metallic Mimic and Adaptive Automaton .

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. .

[[symbol:R]]

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 .

Nice, I always wanted to do a Goblin Tribal deck but never got around to it. It's a pretty sweet deck, though I would consider some of the following cards: Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin , Pashalik Mons , Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician , Goblin Chieftain , Goblin Matron , Skirk Prospector , Goblin Trashmaster , Hordeling Outburst , Dragon Fodder , Legion Warboss , Goblin Rabblemaster , Metallic Mimic , Coat of Arms , Vanquisher's Banner , Urza's Incubator , Ruby Medallion , Door of Destinies , and finally Herald's Horn . If you find this usefull I would appreciate if you support my deck, A Deal with the Devil! Hope these cards help!

I've been testing out non-combo Goblins a bit since Ringleader became legal, and one thing that I think your deck is missing is 1-2 Goblin Warchief . In the games where you have Enduring Renewal but no Prospector and are playing a matchup that you are able to win with value/overwhelming creatures, Chieftain helps a lot. I would cut 1-2 Goblin Chieftain for it.

I accidentally found a combo for infinite goblins in my jund gobbo tribal. Cryptolith Rite + Goblin Chieftain + Goblin Warrens

First thought: Goblin Guide is stronger than Raging Goblin . You might give your opponets an occasional extra land, but you should be winning before that becomes a problem. It's not a cheap card, though.

Second: Goblin Bushwhacker and Reckless Bushwhacker come down faster than Goblin Warchief and Goblin Chieftain while offering a lot of the same benefits. Four copies of each of those is the core of the 8-Whack deck, a solid Modern Goblin deck. It's reasonably customizable and very wallet-friendly, as far as Modern decks go.

Good luck!
