    There's a thread on several Goblin-based deck builds in the forums.

    I know that Doomed Traveler is useful, since you essentially trade it for a flier when it dies, but I've always felt uneasy putting it in a non-token based deck.

    Bonds of Faith is an excellent card - something that can be what you want it to be whenever you need it most.

    Manabarbs actually might be a good idea to slow down blue decks with lots of interrupts. Thanks.

    A friend of mine said I need to add Steel Hellkites to my Goblin deck, as well as Kuldotha Rebirth and Darksteel Relic.

    While I can kind of see why he said that, I think that this deck isn't really supposed to play out past your fourth or fifth turn - it's supposed to be suicide red, pretty much. Sticking in expensive cards like the Hellkite kind of go against the grain, don't they?

    Just out of curiosity, what role do the Arsonists play in your deck? I mean, the Memnites, yes, I can see that, but why not just go whole hog with artifact creatures, or at least more creatures that get a metalcraft bonus?

    My infect deck revolves around cheap artifact creatures with infect, such as Plague Myr, Ichorclaw Myr, Phyrexian Digester, and similar, and then once I get a poison counter on them, I just start sacrificing my creatures with Throne of Geth while also putting the hurt on them with Decimator Web. Pretty easy deck to build.

    Spirits are going to be cheaper to play than Mono White Humans, although for all intents and purposes if you're playing White in Standard you're going to have to play humans of some sort.

    For example, my Mono White Humans deck (non-budget) includes things like Angelic Overseer and Mikaeus, the Lunarch in addition to a slew of human cards like Elder Cathar. This is an incredibly impractical deck to run when you can pump out tokens with things like Mausoleum Guard and Midnight Haunting.

    Token generating decks tend to be fast and quite difficult to counter properly - if you can't head them off early there's little save for board wipes that can save you. I learned that to my dismay when I went up against a Mono White Spirit deck that my friend played - a lot of the cards she played were ones I had in my deck - Day of Judgment, Honor of the Pure, Oblivion Rings, and also some Fiend Hunters, which are an amazing second exile option, welcome in any white or blue/white control deck.

    If you do decide to run spirits, you could go Blue/White - Blue has Spirits like Mirror-mad Phantasm, Mindshrieker, and Sturmgeist.

    runechanter's pike.... attach to Spikeshot eldar...crush opponent


    Why equip it to that when you can equip it to Goblin Gaveleer instead?

    Edit: Oh, I see. Still, I suppose the Gaveleer is a good choice if you can't find the Elders.

    Black/Red can either be aggro or it can also be control, since a lot of creatures that people are playing don't have a lot of toughness. It's up to you whether you want to keep blowing up your opponent's creatures or just deal damage to them outright and try to burn them before they kill you.

    If you want to keep the black, I'd maybe think about making this a control deck instead of an aggro deck.

    Amuro, why do you have Rootbound Crags in there? There's nothing your deck that requires green mana.

    Anyway, Goblins are indeed cheap and I very much like the idea of playing them.

    Do you think that it would be a good idea to maybe put in a deckset of Reverberate, just so you can double your Shocks or what have you?

    EDIT: Oh, I see, for the sideboard you have a splash of green artifact removal. Didn't see that before.
