The wait for Animosity

Every Monday, we have a Modern tournament in our local gaming store, and if everything goes as planned, I’ll be wielding an upgraded version of my mono-red Goblin deck. There was no point in trying the dice roll anymore, since the result was almost the same: I went to either Modern Monday or FNM Modern, ended up with a 1-3 or 2-3 score, and went back home. I always had fun, learned new tricks and talked with other players, but in the end, I try to improve my play, and I had a feeling that I reached the cap with the current cards that I have.

Of course that is not entirely true: I know I can still improve with the current card-set (especially mulligan decisions), but I felt that I was missing one of the staples of a Modern Goblin deck – Shared Animosity. In addition to that, now I have 4 Smash to Smithereens and a Dismember (still waiting on the second copy). So, like I said, if everything goes as planned, my Goblins will have three copies of Shared Animosity, which should be enough to see it’s power. And in that case, I might consider Spikeshot Elder as well.

But if the mail doesn’t come, I’ll have to use Obelisk of Urd and/or Hall of Triumph. Or maybe even a few Goblin Kings. We’ll see.
