After playing Pauper Goblins for a while...

6 posts in this topic

I put together a pretty standard Goblins deck that most Pauper folks agree is one of the best iterations, at least from what I've read.  After playing it for a while and making minor tweaks, I have to say I don't think Goblins is tier 1 in Pauper.  

You have a hard time recovering, so if you fall behind or if your opponent is able to out do you in the first few turns with creatures it's going to end badly.  Flying creatures and board wipes are really bad should you not have removal in your hand.  Bigger creatures with trample or any kind of B/W life gain decks wreak havoc and there's almost no chance of recovering if you fall behind.

Don't get me wrong, there are times it really rolls and you overwhelm your opponent quickly.  But it's almost like a glass cannon deck that if your creatures don't roll in the first few turns you're in trouble.  There's almost no way to recover.  

Just my two cents, YMMV.

Well to be fair the list you linked isnt complete.

I also have a vastly different sidedeck than you and I dont have many issues.

 

But it was never tier one, it was high tier 2 maybe 1.5 but never tier 1.

Using the standard Goblins build.  

What is your side board?

I dont run raze, I never really care about the ONE target type for it.

I run artifact removal. 

I also would never run a netdeck in pauper, but I cant stand net decks anywhere.

That build was the foundation, in my sideboard I'm using Smash to Smithereens

They were talking about Goblins on Color Commontary a few weeks ago and said they haven't talked about it much cause it's not very good
