For Frenzied Goblin, can you cast the block cost multiple times to block multiple targets?

RamenNoodles I learned playing MTG as a mono red gobbos player, and those were some of the first cards in my first decks.
I have a few other good suggestions but you should decide if you want them or not, and if so what to replace them with.
Mogg Fanatic and/or Goblin Arsonist are really good since even if your opponents remove them, you can use them to ping their face, or even destroy their pesky utility creatures.Mogg Fanatic has straight up won me certain infect matchups due to being able to kill the majority of their creature base before being able to buff it up. And Goblin Arsonist synergizes with Goblin Grenade, letting you essentially hit them for 6 instead of 5.
Mogg War Marshal and/or Hordeling Outburst and/or Dragon Fodder Are incredibly great token producers. Hordeling Outburst is actually better then Goblin Rally most of the time, since you're going to want to play most of your deck out of 3-4 lands.
And last but not least, is one of my favorites...

You have a lot of different ideas that are in conflict here. I'd try to make this into a low to the ground goblin deck, since that seems to be the main theme. To do that, I'd remove the Torpor Orb Boldwyr Heavyweights combo. It's a weak combo at its best, especially with Fatal Push appearing everywhere. At worst, you turn off your own Hellrider
I'd also get rid of Reverberate and Traitorous Blood. While they're both powerful effects, they aren't at their best in a goblin deck.
That gives us 11 free slots to work with. To start, add another Goblin Wardriver. The card is great. Next, let's add 4 Goblin Piledriver ($2 each). To finish out the super aggressive 2 drops, lets add 4 Goblin Bushwhacker.
Let's stop and look at the deck with these changes. What is the deck trying to do? Make lots of goblins, buff them up, then deal lots of damage. Simple enough. To finish this strategy up, let's add a bit more reach (burn spells), a few more turn 1 plays, and cut cards that work better in a slower game. Boggart Shenanigans and Curse of Stalked Prey are both too slow for our deck now, so let's cut them. We should also be at 20 lands; this will give us the best chance of getting a 2 or 3 land hand, which is important, since a 1 or 4+ land is a mulligan 99% of the time with this deck. We also need to have RR on turn 2, so colorless lands are risky. Because of this, lets cut 2 Haunted Fengraf. We now have cut 17 cards and added 9 cards, so 8 open slots. I would look this list and pick 1 card. I think your best budget option is Frenzied Goblin. If you want to spend money, you can upgrade to Goblin Guide, but I don't think it's worth it. Finally, let's add 4 Lightning Bolt to give the deck some extra reach and a way to remove problem creatures.

I have 3 points:
Take out the Quest for the Goblin Lords because while they do seem enticing you're spending your time and mana dropping something that doesn't impact the board when it hit the field, while not a bad card you can replace it with something better, like a set of Lightning Bolts! for extra pressure and removal.
Frenzied Goblin has a general mana investment of 2, and it does confirm damage with it's ability. Instead though you can pick up a playset of Reckless Bushwhacker for 8 Bushwhackers, which is a common goblin deck in modern, it's called 8Whack if you want to look into it more. Also another pseudo-anthem creature is Goblin Wardriver with the Battle Cry effect.
Finally in your Maybeboard you have Shrapnel Blast which is a good card, and there's even a goblin deck that runs it called Gobots, you run a few sets of 0 drop artifacts like Ornithopter and Memnite. Then use Shrapnel Blast and Kuldotha Rebirth to get out more damage or 3 tokens on turn 1 to really turn on the clock. You might also want a set of Signal Pests for the psuedo-anthem effect instead of lords, and in any of the goblin decks you can run the new "Lord" from Aether Revolt Metallic Mimic which help if you need to Blast or Rebirth, but also just pumps up goblins that hit the field
You have a really good start to a semi-competitive modern deck and with a little more focus you can really start stomping, some lists go Lordless in favor of more explosive swarms, and for some less budgeted options there's Legion Loyalist and Goblin Guide to really turn up the damage

Hey Darrell this is Austin. I haven't really gone through what should replace what but just a list of what to take out and to add in. The cards that are going on the add list should help speed the deck up and cards that should be taken out are either to slow or just not as good as other cards that are on the add list. Now it's your deck so you do what you want, but these cards should help out a lot. Alright here we go.

Looking at some other lists, I'm unsure of the need for the magma jets. Think more Gobs will put more pressure on. Maybe:

Alright, so I have a few pieces of advice over here. I like Krenko a lot, and the general idea of the deck, but it has quite a few issues. First off, you're running way too many one drops, most of which are pretty bad, while opting out of quite a few excellent ones. The same is true of your two drops as well, to be honest. Creatures like Frenzied Goblin, Raging Goblin, Mudbutton Clanger, and Goblin Shortcutter are just flat out bad. Meanwhile, you're not running some great one drop choices like Foundry Street Denizen, Skirk Prospector, or Goblin Recruiter. EDH is a much slower format, and you cannot run nearly as many one, two, or three drops in it as in other formats. Also, your deck has far too few lands and no mana rocks. Even an aggressive EDH deck should have at least 35 lands and mana rocks total, maybe more. Finally, you just have way too many creatures overall. I'd cut down on the total creatures, especially the lower end of your curve, and add in removal and card-advantage tools, which you have almost none of. Chaos Warp, Outpost Siege, and Lightning Bolt are missing, and on the token generation side, Empty the Warrens.

Break Through the Line accelerates your creatures and helps get those triggers off of Grenzo.
Bedlam ensures every creature you attack with will consistently trigger Grenzo's abilities, and makes swinging for lethal a lot easier.
Oblivion Sower rips more cards off your opponent's library, and is also a nice big creature.
Pyreheart Wolf is another cheap, resilient creature that gives all your attackers evasion.
Berserkers' Onslaught is another card that presses the offensive by giving your creatures a powerful ability.
Rogue's Passage has an ability that works well in this list.
Frenzied Goblin is a cheap 1-drop with a relevant ability.
Legion Loyalist has an ability that's absolutely incredible with a token swarm. Also can be played early on.
