Fun deck! I too have a Goblin deck, so I know how fun they are to play! I have some tips regarding your cards if you're interested. You seem to have 62 cards in the deck, it's never a good idea to have more than 60 card - consistency is king! In general you want a curve that is as low as possible, since you need to keep a pressure all the time. If you don't win turn 4 or 5, you will probably loose the game.

The lands look good, what you need is red mana and you've got it. A tapped land can be dangerous since you need to keep a pressure! I'm trying to run Contested War Zone in my goblin deck, it's risky since it only produce colorless mana, but it's +1/0 ability can be game winning.

Card you can consider adding, price tag in (parenthesis):

Goblin Guide - (Expensive), but really good!

Foundry Street Denizen - Can get really big really quick, (cheap).

Legion Loyalist - Devastating against token heavy decks, first strike can be really good if your goblins are buffed. (Kind of expensive).

Goblin Piledriver - Get really big, game winner with Legion Loyalist's trample, (average price), well worth the cost!

Goblin Rabblemaster - Creates you a massive goblin army, constant pressure, one of these can totally dominate the battlefield, two of them wins you the game. Recently reprinted, so it's (cheap) for what it does. Great if Quest for the Goblin Lord.

Lightning Bolt - 4x.

Goblin Bushwhacker - One of the best one/two drops for goblins, (cheap).

Warren Instigator - Haven't tried myself but he can be really powerful. (Average).

Mogg War Marshal - I like it more than cards like Krenko's Command, since it gives you a bit more resistance against sweepers. It's also a great gobling to sacrifice for Goblin Grenade.

Goblin Wardriver

Additional card to consider, mainly for sideboard:

Smash to Smithereens or Vandalblast

Goblin King

Skullcrack

Cards I'd cut:

Obelisk of Urd - In my experience, Obelisk of Urd is rarely a good card aggro or modern in general. Too expensive, or forces you to not attack a turn if you want it early.

Boggart Shenanigans - Too expensive for what it does. If you want a similar effect I'd recommend Impact Tremors.

Arms Dealer - Too slow, isn't a threat in it's own.

Goblin Kaboomist - Too unreliable.

Bloodmark Mentor - Maybe worth it, but Legion Loyalist is strictly better.

Frenzied Goblin - There are better 1-drops.

Mogg Fanatic & Goblin Arsonist - Cut if you find better one drops to replace the with.

Fury Charm - Not really a good card.

Hope you appreciate the tips and make sure to ask if you have any questions!

The token and Zo-Zu angle you're going for is too slow. I recommend Foundry Street Denizen and Reckless Bushwhacker to get your "deal damage quickly" game going a bit better, and I also recommend at least 18 lands so that you can curve out to 3 consistently. Mogg Fanatic is also much better than Goblin Arsonist. I also like Mogg War Marshal, since it's got great synergy with both the Denizen and the Grenade. Your sideboard definitely needs some Blood Moons to give you a fighting chance against sweepers and big mana, and you need a card like Grafdigger's Cage to fend off the CoCo decks.

Gempalm Incinerator is a must for wort since it's a draw/removal engine you can get back every turn.

Mogg War Marshal is also usually a better Dragon Fodder since you can recur it every turn.

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.

Signal Pest might be worth considering, I think it fits your strategy nicely.

Goblin Rabblemaster or Mogg War Marshal doesn't fit your current curve, but fits the theme as well.

Hello there, if I were you I would cut the Dragon Fodder for four Mogg War Marshal . The Mogg will get you one more token for the same exact mana cost, and there isn't a better goblin to sac for Goblin Grenade.
