I like this idea, have you considered Goblin War Strike?

I hadn't considered it. I think the idea has merit - it has a big upside -- the potential for it to be a good Fork target is there. The only thing that I don't like about it is that it's a sorcery. If it were instant, I would be on board.

I think the idea of the deck is very much a political one. You're aiming to be the guy that picks off the last 1-2 players with direct damage, since you probably can't get all 4 players. And people know that. But you can use the pressure of Goblin Grenade as a threat to keep people away. Why would they go after someone who can do like half their life total in burn in retaliation to them doing mean things?

Similarly, the planeswalker choice encourages people not to hit it. Like, that's fine if you want to hit it, but that damage from the planeswalker is going to your dome. And if you don't hit it, I'll just basically draw another card each turn.

But getting back to the reason that I don't think I like it.. I think Goblin War Strike is bad after a board wipe, which is exactly when I want to spike someone for like 14 and take them out in retaliation for murdering my goblins.

Ideally, I can chip away at people and then finish people off with goblin grenades + fork, or other silliness. The damage from the goblins themselves should be somewhat tame. Arc Slogger is in this deck primarily because I love it and needed an excuse to play it... and I think throwing 40 cards out of your library for 8 damage to someone's dome is hilarious.

Not sure about Goblin Welder yet. I put in Goblin Kaboomist, Wily Goblin, Chrome Mox in. Speaking of which, I should play Great Furnace. I'll add that in.. Hoping to weld into Memory Jar or Triskellion, but I feel like there have to be better welds than this somewhere... Let me know if you think of any..
