Pyreheart Wolf Discussion

I'd say that your ranking of the 4 options is pretty accurate. You missed Smothering Abomination though, which is my number 2 pick I think, especially where it is a sac outlet in a way. Having flying also means it's a bit easier to get dethrone triggers with it if you need to.
I'm currently using Grim Haruspex because it's 3mana and has some wizard synergies, but smothering abomination is very high on my list of potential changes.
Midnight Reaper would be a good include if you needed more life loss cards, or if you needed more card draw and didn't want something like Necropotence. personally i have no issues on those fronts so I've opted to go for the cards i have here. midnight reaper is definitely a good option if you're looking for a low CMC card draw effect to replace Harvester of Souls or river kelpie.
The thing with persist is that other than Glen Elendra Archmage there are only two other creatures that are even worth considering. River Kelpie and Puppeteer Clique. the rest are basically just vanilla creatures essentially in that they have no abilities or other interactions with the deck's gameplan.
as i mentioned before, haruspex is just a more efficient effect than kelpie, 2 less mana is a lot. and i ran clique for a while actually, but i just rarely found myself making good use of the reanimation effect and so i dropped it for something else.
Anything > CMC4 has to be particularly good in my opinion, otherwise it's tough to play in a deck like this since we don't have the ramp that other (Green) decks have available. being able to get the most out of your mana each turn is a big big factor in how effective your deck is.
Undying is obviously much stronger than persist, but again, there's only really about two cards worth bothering with here.
a card which doesn't do more than one thing isn't usually a good pick in my opinion. a creature like Sightless Ghoul which is basically just an attacker with no really notable abilities isn't worth running when its only significant synergy with the deck is that it's hard to remove. cards like Rakdos Cackler are a much better way to get the same effect.
as for undying cards Pyreheart Wolf and Flayer of the Hatebound are the two (other than mikaeus). flayer is too expensive at 6CMC where all he does is give some incidental damage that can just as easily come from attacking. pyreheart wolf might be a decent include, but since i'm running a lot of cards like gravepact and such i can keep the board fairly clear and don't have to worry too much about blockers.
i find that glen elendra archmage is a very strong card in the deck though. flying makes dethrone easy and like you said, sage of fables makes it a great soft lock.
metallic mimic isn't worth it for me since my tribal synergy is pretty light. i have about 7 wizards and nothing else really overlaps much, but if you focus a bit more on the wizard theme though then it would be a great include for sure.
feel free to look at my queen marchesa deck if you want. it's public on my profile i believe.

Saw your post on Reddit! Lantern of Insight is a must have. Cloak and Dagger is a great equipment that automatically attaches to grenzo. Magus of the Wheel could be replaced with Sensation Gorger for that tasty tribal zest. Dolmen Gate is awesome for protecting your attackers. if Blood Moon or Magus of the Moon are within your budget, I highly suggest them. they are great on their own, and with Goblin King, all of your goblins are unblockable.
If you wanted to make this deck more competitive, I would move away from goblin tribal entirely. Krenko is really the best commander for goblin tribal and any deck with him in it just becomes a Krenko deck. There are awesome cards outside of goblins such as Pyreheart Wolf, Neheb, the Eternal, and Rapacious One that would really make the deck shine. those combined with mana doubling artifacts and a few stax elements such as Smokestack, Urabrask the Hidden, Stranglehold, Heat Stroke, and War's Toll make for a quite strong deck.

First off you should really just make this a modern deck, the only not modern legal card is Taiga and werewolves aren't really that great in modern let alone legacy, instead play more basics and likely one Kessig Wolf Run. Additionally I think the deck can benefit from Collected Company and to that end could use some more silver bullet type cards such as Pyreheart Wolf. I think you also want more removal, such as Forked Bolt

Other potential adds: Champion of Lambholt, Dragon Mage (You should be able to dump your hand with all the mana), Fierce Empath (to grab hellkite charger), Pyreheart Wolf, Vigor, Disrupt Decorum , Dolmen Gate, Growing Rites of Itlimoc , Arachnogenesis, Artifact Mutation
"Out of combat" wincons. Assuming you can go infinite with Aggravated Assault there is still a chance they have they can block you and not die. So add some of those safe attacking cards plus creatures like Hellrider

My recommendations are probably not the best, but i tried to suggest cards which are cheap, because it looks like, you try not to waste.
I'd suggest a little bit more variety on the land base. Opal Palace, Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion or Flamekin Village should be pretty decent in Zurgo - even if the village does not do much for zurgo himself. Have you ever had issues with the mana base?
Rhet-Crop Spearmaster < Porcelain Legionnaire - some cards like the spearmaster seem like a filler card to me.Pyreheart Wolf does not seem too strong but he is in my opinion a very underated card in aggressive decks.
