SamsWrath on Grenzo's 5 shades of red

Have you considered Gobos such as Frenzied Goblin , Intimidator Initiate , Caterwauling Boggart and Goblin Battle Jester ? They would help you land combat damage so you can get more triggers from Grenzo's ability.

Izu_Korasu on I accidentally built Krenko

Yea zada is usually less about goblins and more about secretly being a blue player in red.

i think if you drop some of the "im a goblin" cards like Bloodmark Mentor, Goblin Battle Jester, Jeering Instigator, Rummaging Goblin, Lavafume Invoker

in exchange for targeting cantrip instants like Balduvian Rage/Crimson Wisps or combat tricks like Outmaneuver/Downhill Charge you start moving towards zada. (Arcbond becomes MAD which is fun)

that being said, Krenko or Purphoros are probably the better generals in alot of cases and is (as you found out) much easier to build around.
