    Re: Random Standard @ The Source 2021

    Sweet deck. Just as all I wanted out of last rotation was to get Goblin Welder and War Barge to work, all I want now is Goblin Sharpshooter, Goblin Warrens, and two more goblins in play.

    I appreciate the feedback! I'm never too sure about the ban list.
    Good luck with the stuff you have going on. Maybe we'll catch you next rotation.
