Whispersilk Cloak, Trailblazer's Boots,Pathmaker Initiate, Rogue's Passage, Goblin Tunneler and Reconnaissance are good cards to safe guard your "when this creature attacks or "when this creature deals damage.

Rogue's Passage and Whispersilk Cloak to get your direct-combat/infect damage. Pathmaker Initiate and Goblin Tunneler can also get direct-combat/infect damage in.

Love the concept! I see a lot of synergy with Nahiri, the Harbinger bringing out either Alesha, Who Smiles at Death or Master of Cruelties, but after a board wipe with Damnation or Wrath of God or something similar

Some other ideas:

Goblin Tunneler - To make your wincon unblockable

Skullsnatcher - for Ninjutsu after master of cruelties attacks

Blood Speaker - For tutor

Generator Servant - A bit of mana ramp

Braid of Fire - More ramp

Gut Shot - Manaless 1 damage after Master of Cruelties does his thing for the win!

For mana fixing I'd suggest some Blood Crypts for fetching with Bloodstained Mire and maybe like 2x Marsh Flats in place of some of your basics.

That way you can keep your Isolated Chapel, Clifftop Retreat (i'd suggest 2x, not 4x) and Dragonskull Summit (I'd still suggest 2 instead of 4 if you're fetching).

I've had an idea in my head for a Mardu deck like this for a while.. Hopefully we can make something really good!

My first deck was an 80-card pile of mostly Goblins, but included all the hard hitters that were in my dad's collection, like Shivan Dragon and Ball Lightning, with 4 copies of Firebreathing as my finisher (to enchant my Goblin Balloon Brigade or make someone unblockable with my Goblin Tunneler). I still remember when I came back to Magic and saw Krenko, Mob Boss in the case at my LGS.

My first Commander deck was also a Mono-R Goblins deck, headed by my boy Krenko, and later Grenzo, Havoc Raiser.

@shrapnel: food chain goblins is not as good as any other combo deck as it cannot win within a reasonabe amount of time. Ancient Tomb is risky as it does not allow turn 1 Goblin Lackey, and functions the same if playing for turn 1 Aether Vial. No need to run Frogtosser Banneret if you have 4 warchiefs. Goblin Tunneler is cute, winmore, slow, and not needed (cannot be used on turn 2 make lackey unblockable). Fodder Launch < Dismember, both are uneeded.

While vial is a turn slower, it makes your goblins "not Force of Will targets", which is key.

I agree with your comment about wort.

Looks like a fun deck! I play legacy goblins as well. It is pretty rare to see the black splash since many of the black cards for goblins aren't as good as the monoreds. I highly suggest since you are running vial to check out food chain goblins and dirty kitty as well for ideas. Food chain is insane in a goblin deck (much more explosive and reliable than vial imo) and dirty kitty is basically an all in red version of goblins and is a blast to play. A few cards to look into:

Food Chain

Mentioned above. Food chain decks run this + Lightning Crafter + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker for an infinite damage combo that you can get out pretty consistently turn 5, which puts your opponent on a clock.

Ancient Tomb

Crazy good land for goblins, most people run 2-3

Frogtosser Banneret

You don't see these a lot, but dropping a few in with your warchiefs gives some intense cost reductions

Goblin Tunneler

You rarely see these in legacy gobs as well but I think this is an underrated card. Will usually come out for R and let lackeys/piledrivers go through chump blockers. You can drop it on a piledriver before they get their passive buff and he is still unblockable.

In general I would say you should also consider dropping a single Tarfire for a Fodder Launch. Wort, Boggart Auntie is also kind of slow for the format. Looks like fun though. Remember for goblins any non-goblin card hurts your synergy. Looks like a fun deck. I used to play vial, but I think it is too slow for legacy and switched to dirty kitty/food chain.
