No, only permanents can be destroyed.  A permanent is a permanent card or token that is on the battlefield.  So if there is only one raging goblin on the battlefield, that is the only permanent that maelstrom pulse would destroy.

Compare the wording on Maelstrom Pulse to the wording of Eradicate. Eradicate will exile every card with the same name in your graveyard, hand, and library.

Show your friend the definition of a permanent.
110.1. A permanent is a card or token on the battlefield. [...]

Also show them the «by defaut» scope of most cards:
609.2. Effects apply only to permanents unless the instruction’s text states otherwise or they clearly can apply only to objects in one or more other zones.

Tax evasion is nothing but legitimate self-defense against the theft that is tax collection.
