[Top 5] MTGA Best Goblin Decks

MTGA Best Goblin Decks
If goblin decks are a curse, nobody told the goblins.

I’m back again writing about one of the best games ever made. MTG Arena is in the middle of rotation. While the game adjusts to the new trends, let us take a look at one of the craziest tribes in the game. The goblins are always up for a good time regardless of the format. Standard right now is flooded with insects but historic, actually still shows the green boys some love.This list features the top 5 goblin centered decks that are popular in the arena. You will see some powerful cards and themes repeat on this list because anyone running goblins will use these cards. They are just too strong not to include and everyone should run them. However, you can mix and match whatever green boys you like, take a look to see who you should have in your deck.
