Chandra, Fire Artisan plays really well with Heart of Kiran and might be a fun card to include! Inventor's Apprentice or even Goblin Engineer could be good too. Fun deck!

Creature - Goblin Rogue

When [CARDNAME] enters the battlefield, exchange control of target nonland permanent an opponent controls with another target nonland permanent chosen at random.

"I'll make them an offer I can't refuse."

The elves in the art would be arguing, with the goblin between them, arms out, with a smug look on his face. That sort of 'I'm so awesome I don't need to double check' sort of grin.

Have another weird challenge: Pick yout favorite set and color, then count 15 cards into that color by collector number (for white, this means 9/10 times you just use the collector number). Create an uncommon that goes between that card and the next one.

As an example, say I pick Kaladesh and Red. The created card would need to fit between Incendiary Sabotage and Inventor's Apprentice

Seems alright, you are going to need removal to stop what your opponent is doing, stuff like Path to Exile, Lightning Bolt, etc. I would cut angel and pia and kiran, for something like Flickerwisp to double those etb triggers. Helm is too expensive for modern, the same for anointed procession, swapping those for something like Intangible Virtue. The problem with the puzzleknot is 2 more mana for possibly 1 more damage which seems pretty bad, something like Servo Exhibition would fit better. A big body early on like Toolcraft Exemplar and Inventor's Apprentice would work decently.

Hey, consider Rakdos instead of Selesnya this gives you red for 4x Bomat Courier's ability and black to reanimate 4x Scrounger. 4x Unlicensed Disintegration is a still a big reason to be playing artifacts. With red 4x Inventor's Apprentice can replace Toolcraft. and 2x Flagship can replace Verdurous.

Dragonskull Summit, Canyon Slough or Cinder Barrens and Spire for dual lands, more Mountains than Swamps because of Apprentice. Don't need to play as much Hub this way seeing how there's no other way to make energy, 2x Hub is safer.

Good luck with your deck.

Good effort on the deck. Some ideas: I kind of feel like you need more 4 ofs to make the deck more consistent if you want to get aggressive, but this is difficult due to the legendary rule. Hence, is your deck aiming to win quickly by beating down with Champion of the flame, Serra Disciple, Cartouche of zeal and Frenzied rage - maybe add Inventor's Apprentice and Toolcraft Exemplar? - or is it more midrange and grindy with Sram, Blackblade and Tragic poet (who i would cut or move to the sideboard - Restoration Specialist might be more consistent than poet or Tiana). Overall I think the cards available look more midrange, so maybe add Seal Away or Thopter Arrest. Consider cutting Squee who even though is hard to kill offers poor synergies (other than being a legend). Consider Board the Weatherlight for card selection/draw. Teshar, Ancestor’s Apostle fulfills a similar role. For your sideboard consider Cataclysmic Gearhulk as you should be able to get good value leaving behind one of each type whilst your opponent will not. Also, Sanctum Spirit might have a role somewhere? Good luck!

where is Inventor's Apprentice in the deck

Night Market Lookout should be a 4 of, so should Scrapheap Scrounger and Weldfast Engineer Inventor's Apprentice. Cut it back to 22 lands, aggressive decks can run a little less. Bump it up to 4 Unlicensed Disintegration and Built to Smash. Get 4 Fleetwheel Cruiser and run them in place of the other vehicles you have 2 of each of. Then replace the last 2 artifacts with Skysovereign, Consul Flagship. Pia Nalaar would be good in here too. Also add one more solid piece of removal, Never / Return and Hour of Glory are a little more budget friendly than Fatal Push and Vraska's Contempt, Lightning Strike and Abrade are really good too. Trim it down to 60 cards using 4 of each of the cards I mentioned other than the sky sovereigns and the deck will be pretty consistent. Sideboard should be like 3 each of Sentinel Totem Duress Lay Bare the Heart By Force and Shock. This deck should be super fast this way, and it will help that you curve is lower, the only other upgrade would be to replace Untethered Express with Aethersphere Harvester or Heart of Kiran. Hope it works well for you.
