I have thought of a way to create an awesome goblin deck! Load it up with many small, weak monsters! I know many of you out there are like why all weak monsters or how is that good. This is good if you want to get out alot of monsters early in the game. This is also good to build up your amount of monsters or to quickly beat them down. This deck is totally damage and goblin based!

Even though there are many different cards, this deck when it's put together is a major work of art! The reason why I chose these certain cards is because they can attack and do alot of early damage in large numbers and can power up these little monsters to make them so much more powerful! This can also do alot of damage with damage-based instants and enchantments as well as abilities.

The strategy behind this is to summon upon many monsters early in the game and to have them quickly get stronger and do do within only a couple of turns. Use some great cards like Goblin King

to wear down your opponent very quick. This deck is mainly used to fight only one other opponent, but can still work against 2 or 3 opponents if you use another strategy of mine. You can just concentrate on destroying one person, but keeping a few of your monsters to defend against your other opponent(s).

This deck is a deck mainly for people that like goblins and trying to win early, advanced players. I personally enjoy this deck because of its speed and strength so early in the game. I played against players with this deck and it wasn't exactly the same, but it was close. I was never able to beat him because he used an elf deck that kept healing him early in the game. I then changed some cards to what they are presently and I win every time now! Trust me, it never failed me yet! I have amazingly fought deck that have before pulled out 90/90 monsters ont there 2nd turns and won within 6 turns. This deck is just one of my 3 decks and I will post the other two soon. I hope you enjoy the deck I have, it's called Goblin Horrors Deck
