Card swaps (Out - In)

Hey there it's me again! Have you considered Goblin Trashmaster ? I forgot this card existed, but it seems like a pretty amazing card to slot in. Thoughts?

Thanks for chipping in some info JKRice! So I've actually debated multiple times on the idea of Skirk Prospector in the deck, and while I think that it's a very good card and definitely has a place in a goblins deck in modern, I don't think it's this deck. I feel it's more of a card that would be run in a BR goblin storm build with other cards like Frogtosser Banneret and Goblin Warchief as your cost reducers and cards like Mogg War Marshal , Goblin Instigator , Sling-Gang Lieutenant , and Siege-Gang Commander as pseudo rituals and killing your opponent with Pashalik Mons or Impact Tremors . That being said I do agree that lowering the curve would help. I'm thinking about dropping one Sling-Gang Lieutenant and Goblin Ringleader each and adding in a Stingscourger and Goblin Cratermaker . I also haven't had a chance to play Goblin Trashmaster yet so I don't know if it's on the chopping block yet. But I'll be very conscious of how it plays while testing.

Wow, thanks for the huge reply. Let me work through this-
Treasure Nabber : so, I did in fact get this idea from an older version of your decklist and I've ran with it ever since. Essentially my deck has turned into IB/artifact tomfoolery as an alternate wincon. I have won quite a few games with the Mycosynth Lattice , Nabber, Blood Moon combo, because my playgroup is heavily non-basic dependent and nothing feels better than saccing my new-found artifact mountains I just stole. Goblin Trashmaster has also came in really clutch with the Lattice and so has Goblin Welder . Hellkite Tyrant also fits into this theme but I haven't had a chance to use it yet, it's my most recent addition to the deck. And of course Daretti, Scrap Savant ties it all nicely together, I've had her emblem out a few times, which is pretty much game winning with a Lattice on board. With all of that said, the Artifact theme in this deck is highly up for debate right now in my mind and people I've asked. I'm very much on the fence about keeping the Lattice and Nabber in myself, and if they go then Hellkite most definitely goes. Also Lattice+ Vandalblast has pulled me out of many lost games and turned them into resounding victories (I also used to run Shattering Spree ).
Goblin Goliath : He is not being used. I have been on the fence about putting him in for a while now. I don't really know what to remove, and he is a lot of mana to utilize if I want to use him (he'd be a fat removal target for my meta, so I'd have to use him ASAP). I definitely want him in though, he's a strong contender.
Vicious Shadows : this is also a new addition. Boggart Shenanigans is great but I've never really made it work too well outside of like, two wins that I can recall. Shadows is expensive, but with Gauntlet of Power , Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx (which I can reliably grab with an Expedition Map , that cost is almost negligible, for a lot more disgusting effect. But like I said, new addition, I don't know if it is worth a crap or not yet. With the cost in mind, I do plan on running an Extraplanar Lens when I upgrade to Snow lands, alongside the Gauntlet and a Shrine to Nyx, high mana costs with very few lands aren't usually much of an issue. But if Shadows falls flat a few times I am definitely putting Shenanigans back in I think. The potential is just too high for both cards.
Raid Bombardment : So I used to run this one. I like it in theory a lot, and I want to find a spot to put it back in, I just haven't seen it with great results usually. Granted, that was with different playgroup then now, where typically me swinging with goblins means they die in vain, whereas I was much more likely to win with a Goblin Bombardment , which is my baby, and I have used with Shenanigans as well to win games.
Glacial Crevasses : it's been on my radar for a long time. It is 100% the next upgrade for my deck, I was just hesitant to spend so much on snow lands for a long time, since I am still not sold on how many I need exactly. Frankly I think I made a mistake holding off on this particular upgrade for so long (like I mentioned, I've been following this decklist for over a year now after I built my first iteration of IB).
Reverberate / Fork / Wild Ricochet : I love the idea, I really do, but I ran them in my deck for a long time and have hardly used them to any meaningful effect. Ricochet is never going back in, but Reverberate and Fork I want to keep/put in, I just noticed they were usually dead in hand. They're near the top of the list of card I'll put back in, it's just finding space for them. I've never drawn into a game winning combo with them unfortunately, but the theory behind keeping them is solid.
Reforge the Soul : I used to run it, then took it out because I just didn't utilize it enough. Memory Jar is one of my more recent upgrades and I am a big fan. I just put Reforge back in because of Vicious Shadows . Time will tell if I keep either, since Slate of Ancestry also usually ended up falling flat for me.
Ancient Tomb : is also scheduled for the next round of upgrades, thanks for the suggestion! Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle does work, and I think I will also be ordering a Bloodstained Mire with it as well.
Chandra, Fire Artisan : Love her, would highly recommend. Cards effects like Commune with Lava are awesome, and have usually always performed well in this deck. Added to that is the fact that I don't have to spend mana for that option past the first turn to cast her, and she is also another target that distracts from myself, and if I can ult her (I haven't been able to yet) then it's just icing on the cake.
Expedition Map : Yeah frankly I think this is kind of a bad pick too, thinking about it now. It's mainly just in there for Nykthos, since Nykthos is a little more critical now that my average curve has gone up a tad bit. Another mana rock would probably suit me better and more consistently. I know you mentioned a Mana Vault , but what else do you think? I am thinking Basalt Monolith , Gilded Lotus , or a Thran Dynamo . Leaning heavily towards the Monolith and Gilded Lotus. Granted, they're more expensive to get out than Vault, but the 4 cost associated with Vault kind of puts me off of it, idk.
Ghirapur Orrery : I think you have this mixed up with Vedalken Orrery . Ghirapur is super value for me, letting me sac two lands, then play those two lands with Crucible of Worlds , and I'm also frequently out of cards in hand. I'd be willing to remove it for a similar effect though, if I knew one that existed.
Curse of Opulence : I like it, great suggestion.
Rings of Brighthearth : I've wanted this card for ages and kept putting it off because of price, and now it's even more expensive. RIP. I do want to add it asap. Not sure what I would do with Sculpting Steel
Spine of Ish Sah : I want to change this but I can't justify it. It just combos with Welder too well. But Scour from Existence has been on my mind for a long time now solely for the exiling. Haphazard Bombardment seems awesome tbh, that might get picked up by me eventually.
Sundial of the Infinite : My meta runs a lot of board wipes, but tbh thinking about it, they don't often cast them on my turn, so this is probably largely useless for me.
Meekstone has always hindered me more than helped me, and not super useful in my meta, but I think it's high time Crawlspace made a return. Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs is actually insane, that may beat out Crawlspace for me. Wow.
Bottom line is I am heavily thinking about scrapping the heavy artifact theme and going with a more focused deck. I'm just hesitant because the cards in question have won me many games.

Also you forgot Master of the Pearl Trident .
Let us now conclude that there is overwhelming evidence says this card should cost 3.

Are you looking to have fun, win, or a bit o' both? A good card for goblins, because you can cast so many is Impact Tremors . In a 1v1 game the pinging will benefit you greatly. I would also try to up your Krenko, Mob Boss to at least a 3-of. That card is insane! If wanted to, you could up Goblin King to 4, and throw in some Blood Moon 's, or (much cheaper) Alpine Moon . That would help you hit the damage home. Mogg War Marshal is pretty good because you get that chump blocker that will be sac'ed anyway (usually that is), and gives you some tokens. If you want to add more 4-drops (kinda not recommended, but whatever) Goblin Trashmaster is a pretty good buffer and removal for pesky artifacts. Goblin Chieftain buffs and lets you swing wide. Goblin Wardriver is good too. I hope I helped! Good luck!

Obvious +1 because goblins lol Also a fan of your decks in general.
Took me a minute to really think about anything you might add but the top two that came to mind are Raid Bombardment and the new Cavalcade of Calamity nearly every creature you have, including all your tokens, will trigger these guys to drain your opponents away as you attack. As a bonus you can stack the triggers so they drain them before getting buffed by Shared Animosity . I run it my Ib build and it’s pretty effective.
Other possible includes would be Goblin Cratermaker because he’s fun to say. Also he’s got good spot removal and can take out commander staples like Birds of Paradise . We can’t have dorks so why should anyone else? Also Goblin Trashmaster to convert little goblins into artifact destruction. Because they break things.

Any alternatives for Goblin Guide , a bit more budget? Goblin Trashmaster is nice for buffing your gahblihn ahmy! Some artifact removal. Additionally, if you wanted to go more token-centric, I can help you out as best as I can! +1
