Budget Magic: The Goblin Bombardment Goblin Bombardment (Historic)


Hey there, Budget Magic lovers, it's that time once again! Goblin Bombardment is a powerful card - strong enough that it has seen play all they way back to Legacy in sacrifice decks - so today we're heading to Historic to see what happens if we play the enchantment the way Garfield intended: by throwing cheap, death-triggering Goblins at the opponent's face! The idea of the deck is to overload on one-drop Goblins with death triggers that either deal even more damage or draw cards and sacrifice them to Goblin Bombardment, ideally with our other two rares Rundvelt Hordemaster and Pashalik Mons on the battlefield to draw even more Goblins or deal even more damage. The end result is a strong Goblin Aristocrats style deck that can sneak out grindy, slow wins with incremental damage or just combo off to win the game with a huge turn of bombarding Goblins. The best part? The deck only takes 12 rares to put together on Arena and costs just $16 in paper! What happens if you combo Goblin Bombardment with literal Goblins? Let's find out on today's Budget Magic! Oh yeah, a quick reminder that if you enjoy Budget Magic and the other content on MTGGoldfish, make sure to subscribe to the MTGGoldfish YouTube channel to keep up on all the latest and greatest.

Wrap Up

Overall the deck crushed it! We went 9-3 overall, ranking up through Diamond on MTG Arena! If you are looking for something super cheap, fun and different to try in Historic, give Goblin Bombardment a shot! The deck's both fun and surprisingly competitive! Anyway, that's all for today.
