You might want some more Rigging Runners as it is a very good card even without the raid counter. You also might want to consider 4 x Dragonskull Summit for a better mana base.

Splashing for Radiant Destiny sounds like a pretty good idea. I'm sure of cutting Rigging Runner because they haven't performed well in the deck's testing.

Thanks for the suggestions! Fanatical Firebrand is one I've considered in place of Rigging Runner, and it's definitely better than the runner on turn 1, but every turn after that it's significantly worse due to it's inability to crew Fell Flagship. If I need to lower the mana curve later, it's definitely the first card I would add. Lightning-Rig Crew is an interesting card, but I think it's a bit slow for this deck. It would probably feel more at-home in an Izzet or Grixis tempo list, but if Goblin Chainwhirler starts dropping in play and token strategies start to come back, I can see it being an excellent sideboard option.

Hey, glad I could help. If you're looking for a suggestion of what to cut for Wily consider cutting Rigging Runner?

Wily in my opinion can do much more than Runner. Because of Prospector Goblins can very much also be a ramp deck which Wily helps with. The impact of the treasure token helps to cast Siege Gang or Chainwhirler or Warcheif and something else faster is more important than another 1/1 or possible 2/2 one drop Goblin. Using more of a ramp strategy also brings another direction to the deck making it more fun; it's not just a red Goblin aggro deck.

i found the Wily Goblin to be dead weight in my deck, id swap for Shock, Nest Robber, or Rigging Runner . you dont really need much ramp with an early curve like that

When I wrote the part about Rigging Runner, I thought there were only 2x. I probably didn't look closely enough-- my fault. I notice, though, that you are now at 62 cards in the deck. To trim to 60 cards, I would suggest cutting 2x Goblin Barrage as I think the rest of the cards are solid. It's a good card, I realize, but I was looking for the higher end of the curve to drop cards and that seems like the most obvious target.

For your sideboard, I suggest Puncturing Blow as it deals nicely with The Scarab God. That's probably better than Haphazard Bombardment if not for the mana cost alone.

Probably 3x Magma Spray is also good for the sideboard. If you have to use 2 burn spells to get a creature off the board (again, The Scarab God or similar), then using a magma spray is good. It also keeps creatures out of graveyards so cards like The Scarab God and God-Pharaoh's Gift cannot target them. I would maybe cut Key to the City to make room?

I like Release the Gremlins quite a bit, but I wonder if By Force might be a bit better for this deck? Just a thought.

Just some additional thoughts. I like it! This is summing up to be a pretty good looking deck!

I decided to cut Vanquisher's Banner and Goblin Trailblazer for 4 Metallic Mimic and dropped 2 of the Sunscorched Deserts for 2 mountains. I think Goblin Barrage is worth keeping in the deck just for the ability to target planeswalkers thanks to the new ruling. I'm not sure what you mean for Rigging Runner since he is already a 4 of and I decided 1 more Goblin Chainwhirler was probably smart. Thank you for your suggestions!

I wonder whether Vanquisher's Banner is as good as Metallic Mimic for this deck? Might be worth considering. Also, I would drop 2x Sunscorched Desert for 2x Mountain as you don't want to run short when you want to cast Goblin Chainwhirler.

I'm not terribly sure about Goblin Barrage. Maybe 2 more Rigging Runner and 1 more Goblin Chainwhirler?

Just some quick thoughts. Cool deck! +1 from me!
