At what point do you just drop the non goblins and play Goblins? When I want the deck to be slower I guess. Goblin lords are terrible, definitely not like the Merfolk ones. Rabblemaster is just too slow (I've really tried). Piledriver is cool but totally dies to everything and doesn't have any real...

I'm sure you can do better. Pyroclasm is all you should be worried about.
Agreed. Pulling the sacred foundry for another stomping ground and replacing the boros charm with some specific answers to meta decks that don;t majorly hinder my game plan.

How do you play him? Not playing Eidolon seems like crazy talk to me. Eidolon together with Swiftspear made this deck tier 1. Empty hand, play Eidilon, but usually opponent has done the same by then.

I'm really starting to doubt Eidolon in this deck. I typically see him get a lot more mileage when you have more of a board presence. Heck, I'd rather he was Keldon Marauders to block early to make aggro matchups fair or beat face once against slower decks. Am I playing him wrong? I almost wish he w...

You shouldn't be playing fetches for the sake of thinning (I know I'm being a hypocrite here since I do it all the time, but the thinning your deck during the course of one R won't make a big enough differences), its just for grabbing lands and feeding grim/landfall.
