Grim Initiate won't give you a body until it dies. Plus if you get two out and sac them both, you'll only get one extra body out of it.

Meanwhile Goblin Instigator gives you a body right away, which can be used for blocking if necessary. And if you get two out, that means two extra bodies. My vote goes to the Goblin.

However if you really would prefer a one-drop in that slot, there's always Goblin Arsonist.

One of my many experiments with variations on the traditional goblin midrange lists till I find something that's competitive. Most of the old gang is back together but turns out 4 and 5 drops can be a little slow in modern. To compensate I'm trying out an infinite combo that uses mostly cheap gobbos I would be running anyway.

Goblin Arsonist is a card I played with on magic duels back in the day and it's really awesome that I'm getting to play him again in modern. XD

Yeah forgot that Enduring Renewal was a thing. Here's my list so far Enduring Goblins if anyone's interested. Goblin Arsonist was in the first deck I ever built so the fact that I might be playing him in modern makes me extremely happy. Thanks again for the help guys.

guttersnipe is just terrible in modern.. 3 mana that could easily have just been another bolt, and there is a million better options than shock, most of which are fairly cheap.

some shock replacements include:

Wild Slash

Flame Slash

Searing Blaze


Shard Volley

Deflecting Palm

Collateral Damage

Gut Shot

Molten Rain

Chained to the Rocks

guttersnipe could be replaced by plenty of lower cmc creatures not seen in regular burn decks

Young Pyromancer

Firebrand Archer

Kiln Fiend

Goblin Arsonist/Goblin Grenade

Mogg Fanatic

Keldon Marauders

Seeker of the Way

Soul-Scar Mage

Abbot of Keral Keep

sideboard you could and should run more artfact and enchantment hate like


Wear / Tear

Smash to Smithereens

or even just the very basics in Smelt and Demystify

A good addition would be Lightning Bolt. It's pauper legal and a very strong card in general. Chain Lightning and Rift Bolt are also pretty good. Firebrand Archer may be a good replacement for Goblin Arsonist or Footlight Fiend as a repeatable pinger.
