The Goblin Matron into Sling-Gang Lieutenant has been one of my favorite clutch finishers.

GhostChieftain I was highly considering Goblin Sharpshooter as an add-on instead of walking ballista which might open up Imperial Recruiter and possibly Goblin Recruiter / Goblin Matron in the deck as legitimate tutors. Not too sure on the latter combo because a recruiter stack would win me the game but the deck currently doesn't really have the draw power for it. Additionally the lack of haste on sharpshooter could be an issue but it doubt it will.

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 .

thanks for the comment, i know the combo but requires specific cards to make that happen, alone they don't works well for the purpose of the deck. I found March from the Tomb more consistent and i'll try Thunderkin Awakener for sure, good grave recycler and synergyzes very well with other creatures and/or with Crucible of Fire out. Also Thundermaw Hellkite can be another good (expensive) addition cause he synergyzes too much with the rest of the deck.

I need more test but i'll try this setup:

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!

So I had a little chance to playtest tonight, and Crop Rotation actually came through! it found me a High Market for a sac outlet! Went against a The Gitrog Monster and Urza, Lord High Artificer and managed to pull the combo off once. I found some trouble in grabbing sac outlets consistently, so I took out Valiant Changeling and Smothering Tithe for Goblin Engineer and Goblin Matron . Smothering was really more of a stax piece than a ramp, and tossing in the two goblins gives me another chance at finding a sac outlet and Matron can find Mirror Entity if needed. Going to need a lot of playtesting to find all the little bits and pieces, but I'm happy to report the core of the deck works out!

In my deck (which I have yet to use, I must admit) I'm using Bazaar Trader and Starke of Rath .

They are fun cards and with the treason subtheme that pirates (and Beckett in particular) have, I think they can do some interesting things for the deck.

Depending on how hard you end up leaning towards treason effects, Captain's Hook and Makeshift Munitions could be thematic ways of disposing of temporarily stolen creatures.

Also, depending on how many goblin pirates you run, Goblin Matron might be a nice extra tutor. It can also tutor for Goblin Welder , which can turn treasures into artifacts from your graveyard.

I also see that you've included Trove of Temptation . I don't think it fits. The treasures per turn are slow and you will often find yourself attacking with a lot of your creatures, so being attacked every turn is a conflicting strategy.

Anyhow, this is my list, maybe you'll see something you like.

I'm looking for a way to endlessly loop Universal Automaton . Came across the idea while brewing modern goblins and noticed between Frogtosser Banneret , Skirk Prospector , Pashalik Mons , Goblin Matron etc. there might be a way to do this without running too many cards that aren't already ok in the archetype.

Long story short I'm after cards that allow me to cast Universal Automaton from the grave as many times as i want on the same turn (e.g. Haakon, Stromgald Scourge , Liliana, Untouched By Death ). The thing is they could be for any creature type, for creatures or artifacts and in virtually any color.

There are a bunch of directions i could go with this so I don't have a list yet. I really only just need the "cast from the grave piece". thx in advance :)
