Type 1.5 Goblins

One point five, where the bad boys play.  Aggressive decks go from big goofy creatures to cutthroat assasains that lunge straight for the jugular vien. This is my kind of environment.

I've had my deck for about a year and have made many adjustments. 
Originally it was mostly one and two drops but I found I was much more
successful with the bigger creatures.  It is for 1.5 format and I ask that you leave in the Goblin Grenades.  They are great cards and are the focus of my deck, which has been quite successful lately.  Basically I try to get out a Lackey or Catcher to bring in the big guns. Direct damage clears the way and the grenades are just brutal.  Ashnod's Alter speeds it up and in longer games can devastate opponents with Disintegrate or Rolling Thunder.  I still think it can get better though and with Planeshift out, maybe it can.

Let me say this: This deck is fast, mean, and can pull off some mean tricks. But, its not nasty enough for my taste. Im gonna pull out some of the tricks and add more brutality.

This deck is all about pain.  While youre putting Goblins into play for free, you should be pointing burn at blockers and, as we say in the trade, To Da Dome.

I thought about adding Cursed Scroll, but the deck would actually lose some of its edge. I thought about Scent of Cinder, but this deck wants cards on the board, trying to overwhelm its opponent before he can flinch.

This doesnt suffer from overcommitting on the board, it enjoys every minute.

Until the color Red is replaced by the kinder, gentler pastel yellow, Make Mine Magic.
