Without Fetchland, Searing Blaze loses a lot of stock... I think we also get away with the sacrifice a goblin clause because of the token producing spells, since it translates into 1.5 cards for a lava axe their face or trading for their goyf/seige rhino instead of 2 cards.

Looking through the gatherer I did come accross Hordling Outburst (3 mana, make 3 goblins) as an additional token producer.

Devestating Summons as a 1 of is pretty brutal with the 8 bushwhacker effects. Turn 3 swing for 10 or Turn 4 swing for 12 might be clutch. Though getting it remanded seems backbreaking.

While monowhite tokens uses honor the pure and Intangible Virtue to make their tokens a threat, this token deck is using the 8 bushwhackers and 4 goblin chieftains.

Goblin king in the board feels awkward as I want more pump effects in the mainboard, but don't want to cut any of the 8 bushwackers. Being able to Krenko's Command into a bushwacker for 6 damage after a boardwipe is what the deck is aiming to do. Goblin King doesn't let me do that, though is good against any deck running bolt.

forgot to add:
- this would be for FNM level modern, not PTQ grinders.
- budget is too low to add bloodmoon and most fetches. Goblin Guide kinda soaks up most of it anyway... just nothing replaces him for what he does, Vexing Devil does a good impression though with the 8 bushwhacker effects.

Ah, this is a nice thread idea. Don't have to worry making multiple threads for my own harebrained things.

This is the latest I'm working on. Brought about by the recent Commander decks and the Ixalan block. It's working out so far, but I feel it's largely due to my usual opponent getting supremely unlucky as of late.

Creatures: 27

Gifted Aetherborn - 4

Blood Artist - 2
Skyblade of the Legion - 3

Eh. Felt it would get more use if I was mono-black vamps. Didn't feel right in a tri-color deck.
