Legion Warboss Discussion

Vial Smasher the Fierce is a goblin and could help throw some extra damage around. Mirage Mirror is great in any deck. Some anthems like Obelisk of Urd , Konda's Banner , The Immortal Sun and War Horn or even Ashenmoor Liege , Shared Animosity might help out the small bodied goblins. A couple lands worth considering are Rogue's Passage and Rakdos Carnarium . Legion Warboss should be slotted in as well as Warren Instigator . Goblin Smuggler and cards like Rogue's Passage and Suspicious Bookcase would be good at forcing some damage through. With that said Blood Mist should be in your list. Treasure Nabber ? Goblin War Cry ?
Goblins are small by themselves. So I think your best bet is gonna be anthems, buffs and combat tricks.

Shameless self promotion
Also. Any opportunity to build a token deck is right up my ally. Feel free to call on me to help build token decks.
My I suggest you build a token deck around Iroas, God of Victory . Since white is the main color of token production you must pick a cmdr with white. However the things on iroas do exactly what you want without repercussion. Attack with tokens and creatures and not lose on the transaction. This will be a deck that feels aggro. You run cards like Brimaz, King of Oreskos , Goblin Rabblemaster , Hanweir Garrison , Hero of Bladehold , Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin , Legion Warboss , Leonin Warleader , Silverwing Squadron , Skyknight Vanguard , Tilonalli's Summoner , Assemble the Legion , and Outlaws' Merriment , then there's also sorcery spells and instant spells in these colors that produce massive tokens. Spells from Tempt with Vengeance to Storm Herd .

So I know lands aren't the most fun thing in magic but Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Cavern of Souls will definitely buff up the success rate of wins and consistency. Additionally, you asked for cheap goblins that produce more goblins Goblin Rabblemaster and Legion Warboss may help you in that endeavor. Lastly, I'd highly recommend some stax pieces like Magus of the Moon and Blood Moon they synergize with your lords and give your goblins evasion all while crippling your opponents mana base.

Suggestions on how to build:
You need to think much more clearly about what your payoff will be. In Modern, the established Orzhov Tokens deck has plenty of generators, but wouldn't be nearly as powerful without cards like Intangible Virtue , Windbrisk Heights , and Legion's Landing Flip. Another payoff is that token generators are "creature" spells without being creature spells and synergize well with Bedlam Reveler and Young Pyromancer . The 8-whack style of pure aggression using the extra bodies to your advantage also works
I also agree with Boza that three colors is difficult on a budget. Another good option is going for 75% one color and splashing for the really good cards outside that color. I think you should cut black and may be able to focus on red depending on how it ends up.
Specific suggestions for this deck:
From what I saw, you really like aggressive red creatures that also create tokens. I think a good place to start would just be capping the curve at three mana and filling the deck with cheap aggressive cards. So cut anything above three mana and Impact Tremors and Dragonmaster Outcast . My favorites from your deck: Legion Warboss , Hanweir Garrison , Goblin Rabblemaster , I like many of your two-mana choices, but I think testing will decide whether you need immediate board presence with Goblin Instigator effects or the possibility of a larger board presence later with Skyknight Vanguard effects.
My suggestions: Reckless Bushwhacker (aggressive and cheap payoff card), Launch the Fleet (flexible generator), Venerated Loxodon (payoff card/bomb that you should be casting for one mana), Brimaz, King of Oreskos (just fine in this deck), Zealous Persecution (I know I told you to cut black, but this honestly seems good enough to splash for), and Legion's Landing Flip (good early, great late).

Feel like this wants to max out on Goblin Rabblemaster and the slightly worse Legion Warboss and drop the Token Spells. They're 1 card "must answer"s that make an entire board if left unchecked. 4 Bonecrusher Giant and 2 Embercleave are also too good to not play

Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin and/or Legion Warboss are good here. I think Bonecrusher Giant gives you some more options, and Fervent Champion is a good aggro card too. I think Swathcutter Giant can be dropped except against cats decks, and Heraldic Banner really isn't helping you much.
