I feel like you would be best off trying to make this like an 8 whack deck and my recommendation would be to work towards that plan.
Here would be my changes: -1 koth -4 street wraith -4 serum powder -4 infernal plunge +4 Skirk Prospector +4 Goblin Bushwhacker +4 Brightstone Ritual +1 mountain

Thanks DBCooper! I wasn't aware of its existence, and put 2 in, in place of the aggro Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin, and took out a Boggart Shenanigans for another Skirk Prospector.

And, Sorry!, I would've gotten back to you sooner but I've been busy with work, and have been concentrating on tweaking my modern burn build: Lightning and Lava.

Wishclaw Talisman > Scheming Symmetry you should never be helping someone in cedh with a tutor like Scheming. but wishclaw at least lest you pop off on your turn without someone tutoring a counterspell to stop you.

Gamble > Diabolic Tutor diabolic tutor is just bad, 4 mana to tutor something is really bad unless it's letting cheat mana cost somewhere else, like Natural Order

unless you add more discard synergy, i would cut Sire Of Insanity and Protean Hulk you don't have a consistent way to dump them in the gy to cheat their cost. i would even consider cutting Mikaeus too, as it is one of the more expensive ways to activate your persist combo.

and since you're going for the persist combo it looks like: Putrid Goblin is a decent plan B if murderous redcap is off the table. Grumgully, the Generous is probably the better replacement to mikaeus. and with that said, Goblin Recruiter becomes a great line to get your persist combo if Korvold is out. top to bottom: Dockside Extortionist, Vexing Shusher (if you need the protection), grumgully, Skirk Prospector, and putrid goblin or the redcap.

i highly recommend Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast just for some interactions. it's a good way to shoot rhystic study at the least, but you can protect your fairly fragile persist combo as well. unless you're magically playing in a meta without any blue, which for cEDH standards is absurd.

also some other cheap ways to draw cards is also something i noticed this deck missing, all you really have is library, dark confidant, and Korvold himself. decent add-ons are: Oakhame Adversary, Mindblade Render, Azra Oddsmaker, or Runic Armasaur

if you end up cutting all the top end (cmc 5+) cards out, you can also add in ad nauseum for a very strong draw power.

Hey Fran_RuGu, we have 14 Goblins + Krenko in this deck. The odds of having two Goblins in hand are relatively low. Ofc "When" it happens and "When" we are able to connect with Warren Instigator it is good. I had it in my deck before I tuned it into more cedh level. It was more of a gobline tribal/beat-down. I would consider Goblin Lackey if you want to go down this way. It's more consistend putting cards down from hand. Another card to consider is Legion Loyalist you should check out for the beat-down plan. In my deck the number one plan is going infinite it would be not exactly optimal to put these into the deck and trying to do several things at once. Follow your main plan.

About the Goblin Recruiter you can tutor for anything you need right now in your game. It differs, maybe you need mana in form of Dockside Extortionist or maybe you just want a sac outlet int form of Skirk Prospector. If you think it is "safe" right now you can tutor up an infinite Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + something.Goblin Recruiter is a highly versatile card. There is no "always do this" kinda way, you need to read the game and sculpt your hand.

Skirk Prospector and Wild Cantor also sac and cast themselves. Diabolic Tutor to fetch Mortuary.

Caerwyn on Is there a card like ...

I just did a Gatherer search for CMC 2 or lower creatures with "Add" in their rules text. The only other option not listed above is Skirk Prospector, which produces the wrong color.

Also, with the increase in goblins, have you considered Skirk Prospector?

It's a great goblin sure, but I don't see it as a crucial card. I don't have it in here because I don't want to be forced to attack with everything I have on the battlefield. With tokens this is not a problem, but any important goblins I have such as Skirk Prospector will be forced to attack, and if they are killed in action then there goes an important goblin combo piece.
