So a friend of mine wants to learn how to play, as she wants a hobby while she studies. I figure I'll build her a common deck to teach her the game.
I think the best way to approach it is probably red. I can build a decent deck while not having to fork out for any rares.
4 Lightning Bolt
4 Burst Lightning
4 Searing Blaze
4 Goblin Bushwhacker (1/1 that's also awesome late game)
4 Jackal Familair (2/2 but can't block alone- would synergize better with haste guys)
4 Goblin Shortcutter (2 drop that removes a blocker)
4 Plated Geopede (2 for a 3/3 is win)
4 Incurable Ogre (3 for a 5/1? win.)
3 Dragon Whelp (Needs something fun if it goes to late game)
4 Tectonic Edge (death to manlands)
So yeah. Looking for a) other card suggestions and b) to buy it from someone.
Other good card choices include:
Goblin Artillery - 3 drop that blasts stuff (I'm basically building Sligh anyway)
Firey Hellhound - 3 for a 2/2 with Firebreathing
Goblin Roughrider - 3 for a 3/2
Raging Goblin - instead of the 2/2's that can't attack or block alone
Shatterskull giant - 4 mana for 4 power
Guyser Glide - 5 for a 4/4 that landfalls for flying
And finally, panic attack. It basically removes all blockers.
