Legacy Goblins by Caedyrn
Legacy Goblins has always been a fringe deck in the format with various aficionados of the archetype. One of them is definitely Caedyrn, who clinched the 2nd place in Sunday’s Legacy Showcase! Caedyrn is a very prolific content creator about their pet deck, Goblins, so definitely make sure to check them out!
Turn one Goblin Lackey has always been a threatening start, but there’s a lot of new cards in this list that got added to Legacy in recent years.
Sling-Gang Lieutenant, Munitions Expert and Pashalik Mons from Modern Horizons are such great updates to Gempalm Incinerator, Krenko, Mob Boss and various other Goblins you used to play. Sling-Gang Lieutenant in particular is wild, as it’s able to get you a win out of nowhere. You only need an alpha strike (but make sure to keep your Sling-Gang back) and you’re often able to deal twice the amount of damage of the creatures you control.
Muxus, Goblin Grandee is of course an additional important piece of the deck, as you’re able to tutor it up with Goblin Matron and Goblin Ringleader and then, thanks to Cavern of Souls or Aether Vial, it’s often an uncounterable game-winning threat.
Finally, there’s Masked Vandal, that by itself makes you splash green for it. It’s a powerful two-mana Goblin Reclamation Sage that gets rid of the many artifacts and enchantments floating around in Legacy at the moment from Retrofitter Foundry to Urza’s Saga.
I don’t think Goblin is the answer to Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer in Legacy, but it’s certainly nice to see decks like this do well! Well done GoblinLackey!
