How about Lotus Bloom? That's a pretty powerful storm-engine. I also think you should play 4 Grenades, as they significantly lower the amount of storm you need to win.

I see why you play Bombardments, but I have a feeling they may be unnecessary and only slow down the combo-aspect of your deck.

Thanks for the rate... again! =]

Let me start off by saying that I love Goblin deck. I personally think they are the most versitile of creature themed base decks. They are right up there with Elves.

I really can't think of anything to say to put in this. The only thing I would suggest is Chrome Mox Buy and try to get ton more speed.

Thanks again.

Rate another one if you want to! =]

Around what turn can this go off? Seems Good, but with the warrnes for 6 mana you get 6 goblins (assuming you drew no mana accell)
With 2 mana accell you can do on 4th turn 7 mana possible, storm 2 already, 3 1 cmc spells and warrens for 12 goblins. So i am assuming this generally can win turns 4 - 6? (I did not take into account cards played before turn 4, because to make that turn 4 happen you needed 7 cards in hand. and because it is just theoretical)

The deck has been one of my most consistant decks in general. I usually stall the first few turns and get out goblin bombardment And meekstone. Then by 4th or 5th turn I can hopefully play into a riftbolt, sack goblins for mana, play spells for free such as fireblast and pyro which and maybe a goblin grenade with a 5th mana after playing Warren for 4 mana. This usually gives me 8-10 goblins which I can usually sack that turn for am easy win. It's a super fun deck.

I'd like to see Goblin Recruiters and Goblin Charbelcher's in there but it's still dangerous without them.

I gotta say you commented on my Goblin deck and so i will return the favor. I like your deck, it looks disgusting. My kind if thinking when i play magic lol. You and me seem to have something in common when it comes to beating the h3|| out of other players using fast red.

I would def. stick with:
Goblin Grenade Buy

4 should be plenty in your deck.

You seem to have a nack for playing Mishra's Factory Buy and Wheel of Fortune Buy
Dont get me wrong or anything, i love these two cards, but unless ur deck is vintage, which if i look again, your deck is, well fortune is restricted, along with Strip Mine Buy.

Other then that, its a bad a$$ deck. I like it. and i still wanna play you somewtime, hopefully get my rear end kicked around a few times.

Good deck indeed. Keep up the good work and keep up with them rates u been giving me on my decks. I appreate it

I feel like this deck could be even faster. I'll have to think about it.

Lightning Elemental Buy is a good card for this deck since it costs the same as a Lightning Bolt Buy but could be sacked with Bombardment.

Browbeat Buy is something I would put in just so you don't get stuck with as many dead-end hands.

Good work with this deck. I definitely wouldn't have thought to put all these cards together in a combo like this, but I'm glad you thought of it. Happy

Nice build.

I would recommend running Wastelands. The mana denial will hurt the opponent far more than it will do so for you. Unless the factory is a game winner, I suggest the replacement because after years of using it, I know that Wasteland IS and forever will be a game winner.

For added consistency, I would run 4 Street Wraith. the whole point of them is the cycling ability - With 56 cards, the deck will be even more stable and consistent.

IMO, I say screw the protection from Meekstone and pyrokinesis (using two cards for a free spell is iffy) and go all out or bust. Yes this is a risky business, especially since the addition of mindbreak trap, but since this IS a storm deck, it would work better. Also since you want to build up a storm count, you may want to build up your storm count faster with cheap artifacts/artifact mana. An example would be Mox Diamond or Chalice of the Void.

Since red has about the worst draw engine next to white in the game, you need draw from something broken - Skullclamp. Skullclamp is simply excellent for weenie decks as a draw engine and has won me many games. IMO, this draw engine is far superior to Browbeat. 5 damage means nothing if they can go out.

I know that you stated that this deck wins turn 4-5 consistently but against what? Is your clock unimpeded at 5? If it is, then its not particularly fast. By necessity due to the hostile environment, most decks in Vintage either have a very strong lock down or have won the game by that time. Your disruption in this deck is quite low for a vintage deck and thus an all out method is favored.

I particularly have a soft spot for Magus of the Moon/Blood Moon. It totally wrecks some of the most powerful decks in vintage. I see it a good focus for the 2nd round.

On sideboard, I recommend running Mindbreak Trap. It gets plenty of lolz and is very unexpected. It will also give you a significant advantage against storm decks.

I don't think you should have too much problem with Ichorid. 8 of your creatures can sac itself to remove bridge and the other 2 are easy enough for you to remove if you need to do so. Therefore, you should consider making the tormod's crypt to relic of progenitus or pithing needles.

As powerful as Goblin grenade is, your goblin count is just too low. I would recommend leaving it out.

You may want to consider splashing black for early hand disruption, tutors, a little draw, and Dark Rituals. If not then green for Goyfs (so overplayed but so good.) and for the use of ancient grudge's flashback ability. Grudge shouldn't be in sideboard if you don't produce green. Shattering Spree is much better and goes past chalice.

Shusher is also excellent to hose big blue albeit it doesnt exactly fit the theme to this deck. Good for sideboard, 2/2 swinger, or a late pitch to bombardment at the very least.

Raze is a wasteland that costs R to play. Garbage.

Wheel of fortune is very risky. It's Russian Roulette on crack. Be very prudent when casting it.

This is a Very nice goblin deck! I would also say add something like Chrome Mox to make this a bit faster but still very nice!

Really good deck. May I suggest using Brightstone Ritual. You may not have many creature spells, but since it's only a one drop it should work well with your deck.
