(1)(Red), Sacrifice a Goblin: Arms Dealer deals 4 damage to target creature.
definitely not Goblin Rabblemaster , if you want more goblins you can do so much better.
Mudbutton Torchrunner is a great blocker and your opponent is unlikely to block, he's an even better sac fodder, but is 3 mana
Goblin Arsonist same thing as torchrunner, but only 1 mana and 1 damage., the perfect target for grenade.
Arms Dealer is a repeatable goblin grenade,
personally I wouldn't recommend anymore goblins, but if you must then definitley one of these over Goblin Rabblemaster, he's just terrible in a burn deck.
Food for thought:
Goblin Rally Goblin Sharpshooter Arms Dealer Flamewave Invoker Foundry Street Denizen Frenzied Goblin Goblin Chirurgeon Goblin Diplomats Gempalm Incinerator Goblin Sledder Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician Mudbutton Torchrunner Reckless One Skirk Fire Marshal Skirk Prospector Goblin Burrows and of course Raging Goblin
I have been thinking about Goblin Guide but the rest are ones I am not looking into. Like Arms Dealer is sacking my guys when krenko wants all my guys on the field to get more goblins. Krenko's Command can be slow because a turn 2 play would be Dreadbore or Terminate or maybe Warren Instigator . Blood Crypt is probably a great fixer or Dragonskull Summit . Mizzium Mortars should replaced for what though?
I would definitely suggest Arms Dealer If you can get krenko out you can sac a bunch of token cards to deal damage to any creatures that are in your goblins way. Emberwilde Augur would be great for this deck since its a burn. Dogpile would also be good, especially if you pull out krenko and get to work with him. However, it is a bit over what you said you wanted your mana cost to be (4), but I would consider it. Maybe Barrage of Expendables would be a more cost efficient alternative.
For the record, all of these cards are under $1 on amazon. Good luck. :)
With 40 life, I've never played an EDH match in less than 20 minutes. I've seen swings for 30 life, but it took a while to build it up; you can always throw Door of Destinies in, and try it to see how effective it is, and if it's too slow drop it.
The Skirk Fire Marshal said "board wipe" to me, which everyone keeps telling me are essential in EDH games, but SFM is just a creature wipe, so it's kinda a maybe-card since I don't know how many board wipes are available to red.
That said, you'll need artifact hate like Smelt , Shatter , Overload and Vandalblast even though it's not a goblin, Ember Swallower will help you in that (1) it's a fattie, whereas goblins are typically weenie, and (2) you won't need a ton of lands since most gobs are low cost.
On another quick look, I also found:
Beetleback Chief for more tokens
Boggart Shenanigans to ping your opponent
Foundry Street Denizen , used a lot in standard red aggro decks.
Goblin Assassin , if you like coin flips, if yer a gamblin' man
Goblin Gaveleer if you use equipment
Goblin Snowman as a blocker
