Deck updates have been moved to

My legacy Goblins list, been working on for over a year and a half.

Deck went 4-2 at SCG Philly July 2018 (team dropped after round 6 because we couldn't make day 2).

Most important thing is that in our opening hand we want either Aether Vial or Goblin Lackey . My favorite opening is Wasteland into Aether Vial on game one making the opponent think we are on D&T. Our main win condition is just pounding our opponent's face with Goblins, however, we also have the Skirk Prospector / Goblin Sharpshooter , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Lightning Crafter combo. Our Vials and Lackeys let us cheat big scary Goblins into play (the classic is Turn one Lackey, Turn two Siege-Gang Commander ). We can slow down fast decks with Wasteland , Rishadan Port , Stingscourger and our sideboard has Chalice of the Void , Surigical Extraction, Containment Priest , Blood Moon , and Mindbreak Trap . We out value fair decks with Goblin Ringleader , Skirk Prospector , Mogg War Marshal , Goblin Piledriver , Goblin Matron , Goblin Warchief , Krenko, Mob Boss , Earwig Squad , and Siege-Gang Commander . Our basic removal is Tarfire which we can both tutor and draw from Goblin Matron and Goblin Ringleader , and our uncounterable removal is Munitions Expert when we have Aether Vial or Cavern of Souls and our free removal spell in the sideboard Pyrokinesis . We can overwhelm our opponents late game with all our Lords, Goblin Chieftan, Goblin Warchief , and in our sideboard Goblin Trashmaster . Against Death and Taxes and Delver decks, we also have Goblin Sharpshooter and Goblin Chainwhirler .

In this section, I will discuss sample hands and what we want to keep against specific decks. While most of the hands we want a Turn One Goblin Lackey or Aether Vial we sometimes want other things from our hands. The London Mulligan makes this so much easier.

What about cards , , or ? Show

How about non-Goblin cards? Show

I am going to preface this section by saying most of our worst matchups are very uncommon. This section focuses on the cards we probably want to make those matches more favorable. The best two cards are the ones we really want for right now, however, if you're expecting to see a lot of Lands decks you might want to consider a single Karakas in the sideboard instead of one of the Containment Priest .

No. 1? Show

What's the second No. 1 card? Show

What about something to fix our Lands/Loam or the rare Maverick deck? Show

After testing a lot online for SCG Syracuse, I found that Plague Engineer needed to be in the deck and Cratermakers were our main way of dealing with Emrakul.

Mainboard drop: 1x Tarfire

Mainboard Add: 1x Goblin Cratermaker

Sideboard drop: 2x Blood Moon 1x Goblin Piledriver 1x Goblin Chainwhirler
