I created this deck because of the popularity of Patron Warrior and to add even more synergy to the deck. The Hobgoblin uses Patron staples such as Unstable Ghoul and Acolyte of Pain as well as the new Angry Chicken to be a great buff card. As the combo now costs less mana but more cards, I find it easier to pull lethal. Awesomely, it's now possible to play the combo with Frothing Berserker. The combo goes something like this: Warsong Commander, Hobgoblin, Frothing Berserker, Angry Chicken. The Frothing may not be necessary. I then damage the chicken with an Inner Rage or two, leading to an immense amount of damage from an empty board, more than Patron can pull off. Reliable card draw and damage synergy lead the deck to be a competitive and surprising alternative to Patron Warrior.

Mulligan Strategy: Toss everything except Armorsmith, Unstable Ghoul, Fiery War Axe, and Acolyte of Pain. You want to get a War Axe in your opening hand, so a hard mulligan is a good idea to get the Axe for early board control.
