I'd replace...

Blasphemous Act with Goblin War Strike (oops you're dead)

Five-Alarm Fire with Arms Dealer (2 mana to kill a pesky creature)

Starstorm with Voracious Dragon (oops he's dead too)

Ashnod's Altar with Outpost Siege (choosing Khans every time)

In my opinion, you don't really want to be wiping with board which is why I'd remove Blasphemous Act and Starstorm. If they hit faces that'd be different.

Five-Alarm Fire is great if you're ahead, terrible if you're behind.

You only have a couple spells that cost more than 4 so I don't see a huge benefit to Ashnod's Altar.

As far as the cards in the maybeboard, the only one I'm not a huge fan of is Goblin Warrens. Paying 3 mana for a 1/1 token seems like a really bad deal. Sure that token doubles with a Krenko activation but I still wouldn't be thrilled with that deal, but that's just me

Arms Dealer for easy creature removal, Impact Tremors for that insane damage when you make tokens, Adaptive Automaton for an extra buff, and Legion Loyalist for mass attacks and token hate?

Looks great, I might consider getting Feldon myself! +1

I'm going to add in the Goblin Grenade Its much faster of a deck than I thought and I typically don't even trigger Arms Dealer otherwise its a pretty solid deck. I need to take it to a modern night at my LGS.

Suggested Cuts:

  • 5 Mountain
  • 3 Tuktuk Scrapper
    • This is the type of card that should be in sideboards. You really never know if the deck you're playing against will have any artifacts. If they don't, then it's just too expensive for what you're trying to accomplish.
  • 3 Arms Dealer
    • He's really expensive for the deck. Paying 3 and then 2 more will mean less of what you seem to want to do (slam down all of the goblins) and more of something that's not overly powerful.

Here out is just things I think are fine, but overall need to be left out to leave room for higher impact/cheaper cards.

Then I added in some new cards to the mix: +1 Mardu Scout, +3 Lightning Berserker, +2 Goblin Bangchuckers, +2 Forgestoker Dragon, +1 Arms Dealer, +4 Impact Tremors, +2 Berserkers' Onslaught, +3 Stormrider Rig. This fills out more of the Dash and punishment theme of the deck. Dropping the 1 off cards in favor of more resilience and consistancy helps the deck. Using Impact Tremors and Berserkers' Onslaught Lets the deck drop some of the burn and trick cards. The Forgestoker Dragon gives some excellent board control options compared to the Volcanic Dragon. The volcanic is not bad in the deck. It just did not do anything else for the deck and the forgestokers seem like they will improve getting wins.

This looks really nice, I would just personally be wary of Goblin Pyromancer because even if he can blow out a game, his pop your board effect can go horribly wrong if something goes awry during combat. Also, the "target creature can't block" effects generally aren't too powerful in EDH simply due to the abundance of creatures in the format, but if it works in your playgroup, by all means keep them. Door of Destinies doesn't proc off of Krenko, so I took mine out of my deck due to the lack of synergy, but your version looks like it will make great use out of it anyways.

Magus of the Moon is Blood Moon on a stick, so if you want repetition of that effect, I would highly recommend that. Rings of Brighthearth are also really nice for Krenko/Arms Dealer/Skirk Fire Marshal/Goblin Lookout,etc.

+1 from me though and thanks for your help with my deck!
