Why Manic Vandal over Tuktuk Scrapper? I see it is 1 CMC less, but if you ran 4x Goblin Warchief like most legacy decks you could easily drop for 1-3 mana in most games, or just Vial it in. Plus, it won't go to the bottom of your deck with a ringleader drop pull.

Krenko, Mob Boss is a 1x staple for most decks now.

You don't see many decks in this format running Warren Instigator since it an RR and there are much rougher choices for a 2 drop for goblins I think like Mogg War Marshal, or obviously Goblin Piledriver.

I think Grenzo, Dungeon Warden is a bit slow, but Grenzo, Havoc Raiser as a 1x will start popping up in legacy decklists soon.

I agree with the above comment that Goblin Grenade is not good in legacy. I do however, think a 1x Legion Loyalist is worth it to give your other goblins great buffs as a 1 drop, especially piledrivers.

Boggart Mob can get pretty out of control and lets you retrigger matrons and ringleaders with a sac mechanism like Goblin Sledder or as most decks run, 1x Skirk Prospector. This isn't a popular choice, but worth considering. I run it in my RB goblin deck, but thats for casual. The champion effect of Lightning Crafter has the same retrigger potential.

Frogtosser Banneret could help you reduce costs of some of your goblins just like a Goblin Warchief, but you have neither. I think these are important for tribal goblins (most run warchief over frogtosser for the haste/monored).

1-2x Ancient Tomb seems to have dropped off most top8 decklists, but I like running 2 in mine. I run Food Chain Goblins and dirty kitty though, so my mechanic is different (and more vulnerable, but faster) than vial gobs.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker is nuts.

Consider Terminate or Gempalm Incinerator or Tragic Slip even for removal.

As for the sideboard, many people like running Krosan Grip if they splash with green. Also consider Thoughtseize. I also think that Blood Moon like stated above is great for MONORED in the sideboard if you choose to drop black. I think a 1x Goblin King is nice in the sideboard as well. Red Elemental Blast might help in the side as well.

I know it goes against the flavor of your deck however Battalion creatures also benefit from Iroas. Odric, Master Tactician, Firemane Avenger, Frontline Medic, Legion Loyalist, and Tajic, Blade of the Legion all seem good. Other than Loyalist everything is budget.

That's unfortunate, I'm gonna need a better name now. I was thinking maybe I should replace the scourge slot with Red Sun's Zenith since scourge was more of an extra way to close out the game. I also like the idea of adding Legion Loyalist but I'm not sure it will be as good.

Grenzo, Dungeon Warden kind of seems like a slow gamble for the format.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker+Lightning Crafter+Skirk Prospector=infinite damage combo.

I think that Legion Loyalist could be a good 1x for you (maybe replace a Skirk Prospector? Give those Goblin Piledrivers trample and stop chump blocks.

Grenzo, Havoc Raiser is worth considering imo. I think 1x of him will start popping up in legacy decks.

I like and run 2x Ancient Tomb, but people who play gobs have mixed feelings about them.

Boseiju, Who Shelters All?

Boggart Mob can get pretty out of control with Krenko, Mob Boss and the champion effect lets you retrigger a creature like Goblin Matron or Goblin Ringleader. Same with Lightning Crafter.

Sparksmith used to be popular for larger removal, but he hurts like hell. Might save you against reanimator decks and the like since you get more than one use out of him, unlike Gempalm Incinerator.Looks like fun!

@miracleHat: I wouldn't call food chain a straight combo deck, it is more beatdown with an impending combo to just pressure an opponent imo. Then again, you don't see it really placing like vial does right now. Probably because of what you said with so much counter out there stopping a good chain.

Since you mentioned the Ancient Tomb not being great I checked a bunch of placing decklists on mtgtop8 for legacy goblins and am not seeing it now. I guess goblins have changed a bit since I last checked, used to be pretty standard to run 2-3. They help me out a lot, but I'm running my gob decks much differently.

I forgot to mention Legion Loyalist as a 1x is pretty nice as well.

Mandalorian I can see how it's useful but I'm not sure if it's good enough to be in the main. I feel like I should be okay without it because of Legion Loyalist. But I'm still a little ways away from finalizing my list so I'll put it in there for a little bit and see what it does for me. Thanks for the suggestion!
