Goblin Arsonist is just a pure budget option so in my opinion it can be freely customized.
For me it's just a placeholder for Goblin Guides and it's fun to blow him with Goblin Grenade xD

Yes, thanks. To be fair, i would play it over Goblin Arsonist which i don't like as much as Mogg Fanatic. But i understand its different utility, so i won't say that the Arsonist is an inferior or wrong choice. :)

Rigging Runner might be good budget option but otherwise it's just too slow. Most of the time you throw goblins during MP1 because they have haste or give it to everyone. There are some that aren't doing this but have static effects that help others like Goblin Arsonist or Frenzied Goblin, while this guy just has First Strike and MIGHT come as 2/2.
Overall, this creature has too conditional ability in my opinion, that needs some preparation for it. But we are playing Goblin deck, 1-drops go on turn 1 :D (Goblin Bushwhacker is just a 2-drop)
Hope this helped and thanks for upvote :)

I honestly don't think +$4 is over budget, but it is a bit expensive compared to the rest of your spells. What about Mogg Sentry, Goblin Arsonist, or (this is what I'd pick) Foundry Street Denizen?

I see your points, ellie-is! And using Goblin Arsonist definitely makes sense! On the other hand, Mogg Fanatic kills of mana dorks (e.g. Birds, Hierarch), certain elves, Steel Overseer and Signal Pest, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben and Aven Mindcensor, Inkmoth Nexus and Blinkmoth Nexus all before they may get out of hand.

If I can't either pump Arsonist big enough to threaten the opposition's life total or have a Grenade at hand, I will not be able to freely shoot with Arsonist. Fanatic on the other hand grants me that. So although Arsonist looks better on paper, Fanatic has more utility.

I'll however do some testing and completely replace Fanatics with Arsonists for a while.

I hope you like shaman too

As an avid edh Wort, the Raidmother featuring the combo Of Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, and Lightning Crafter and shaman stuff, I like jund/gruul as much as i love grixis, always looking for new ways to play the colors in modern and edh, this deck gets my vote

Its subtly powerful and original, and well built

In the event blue is a threat in modern again,id recommend 1 or 2 Vexing Shusher to counterproof spells, also Burning-Tree Shaman could see sideboard play

Maybe Crimson Mage, Firedrinker Satyr, Fulminator Mage, Goblin Arsonist, Oracle of Mul Daya, Rattleclaw Mystic, Thrun, the Last Troll, Thermo-Alchemist, or Stonewright?

My first modern brew was red goblins, and if you ever get enough store credit to buy a few, id recommend 2-3 Cavern of Souls mainboard for another Stomping Ground type of land that hoses blue

Besides other non budget things such as Wooded Foothills and Aether Vial cant think of anything else,

You're welcome. Sadly I have not had much lucky with ramping with red unless I am using Geosurge, Pyretic Ritual, Seething Song, or Infernal Plunge. I like to combo the plunge Goblin Arsonist to poke some damage then combo into the other spells. There has been a few times I had a chain combo and brought out a Balefire Dragon in turn one. Don't bank on that luck being a sole win condition.

Sweepea38 I'm not a fan of Mogg Fanatic, or Goblin Arsonist. Hordeling Outburst will most likely replace Goblin Rally.

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