Goblin Recruiter Discussion

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.

We don't need another win condition and Aria of Flame is kind of a drag with its 'Instant and Sorcery' only while giving our opponents 10 lives each.
We need to have our pieces connect and leave less to the luck of the draw.
Right now we have disconnects in our sequence to winning... Feather, the Redeemed has a disconnect with Sunforger which tutors for Enlightened Tutor to grab us Paradox Engine but only if we get to draw using a draw spell. But where is Aetherflux Reservoir ?
But by having Goblin Engineer I can grab any one of the missing artifacts that is required for our win condition. With a casting cost of 1R and activation cost R, we just need Crimson Wisps or Expedite to pull our artifact into the battlefield for a total CMC of 4, which is the same as Aetherflux Reservoir and less than Paradox Engine .

more one-card combos:
Search up Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Lightning Crafter , then any Goblin sac outlet (too many to list), or anything that triggers off of etb or death ( Pashalik Mons / Boggart Shenanigans / Warteye Witch ). With a sac outlet, you get infinite damage from Lightning Crafter copies, and infinite of the sac effect (for example with Skirk Prospector , infinite red mana.
Moggcatcher fetching all three pieces on its own is pretty slow, requiring a full turn after you play it to use it, then still requiring an additional untap and activation. One way to use it is, EOT, fetch Kiki, copy Moggcatcher, fetch
with the copy, untap Kiki, Moggcatcher, and copy. Get a card with champion (adorementioned Lightning Crafter, or
using the Moggcatcher or the copy of Moggcatcher. Win
Another way is EOT get Sensation Gorger , then in response to upkeep trigger, get Goblin Recruiter . This has bonus of discarding everyone's hand. Then you draw any five gobs you want. In this case, you can go off with Kiki + Goatnapper + Shields/Wings/ Blades of Velis Vel for meme value (turn Kiki into a goat)
can achieve same speed because it is a sac outlet itself. EOT get Moggcatcher, untap, Moggcatcher gets Kiki, Kiki copies Moggcatcher, Moggcatcher copy gets Lightning Crafter.
In response to Champion trigger, Cateran Overlord gets Changeling Berserker , Berserker champions Kiki, then let Lightning Crafter champion trigger resolve, tucking Berserker (or just sac it), which brings Kiki back untapped. Now you have Kiki untapped, Crafter, and a sac outlet, which is enough to win.

Huge fan of Wort, Boggart Auntie as goblin commanders go, recurring a gobo every turn is insane value. Repeating Goblin Ringleader , Goblin Matron , Goblin Recruiter , or Siege-Gang Commander effects as you sacrifice them on endstep for any number of effects allows you to acre amazing card advantage.

I know this is really late but if you ever see this thank you for the suggestions. I added in the Goblin Recruiter , Dragon Fodder , and Impact Tremors . I took out all of the cards that helped other people too much like Horn of Greed , Howling Mine , and Font of Mythos . 100% going to be adding Chancellor of the Forge , Purphoros, God of the Forge , Boggart Shenanigans , and Goblin Matron . This deck runs very well at my LGS and people seem to enjoy playing against it. The deck seems powerful but is not too out of hand.
I updated the list to reflect what I actually was able to find and buy since I had none of these cards until well after I posted the list I came up with.

I would run basic mountains as they are far cheaper. Tarfire also works well with the goblin tutors.
There are many jank.. I mean... Sweet budget goblins out there:

Invert / Invent isn't legal in this deck because Krenko doesn't have blue in his color identity. It would be nice though!
