Warren Instigator Discussion

I would suggest focusing on having large numbers of low cost Goblins and ones with utility rather than big ones. Battle Squadron, Voracious Dragon, and Berserkers' Onslaught could be cut.
You might cut some of the anthems, or just play more efficient ones. Vanquisher's Banner gives card draw which is really helpful for this deck. Adaptive Automaton is worth a shot as a 2 CMC Goblin lord. Goblin King gives mountainwalk which could be relevant in multiplayer games. The new Goblin Trashmaster is a lord that also provides artifact removal. Ogre Battledriver and In the Web of War give haste and also pump your Goblins, so could replace Hammer of Purphoros.
Mana Echoes could be good to generate mana whenever you make or play Goblins, and also goes infinite with Umbral Mantle or Sword of the Paruns on Krenko if you would include those in your deck. Thornbite Staff can untap Krenko for free whenever a Goblin dies, so it goes infinite with any sac outlet. Ashnod's Altar is another good one.

Glorious! +1! Love the spirit guide and King's Moon! As our beloved gobbos are ironically slow in modern, you might have fun testing some more immediate threats:
Both would go swimmingly with the lord buffs, and Instigator gets trample from Legion Loyalist...

Also, this is not a deck where it's possible to run 12 lands. You'll want to run 18 at a minimum if you're playing a 4 cost spell. Every hand won't have Skirk Prospector, and Skirk Prospector is only good if you've got enough mana to play your token generators.
Deck looks real fun, but it needs to decide between aggro and mid-range. You definitely need to up the land count, as Skirk Prospector doesn't cut it as a land replacement.

Warren Instigator seems like a very hopeful card - it's a 1/1 creature, and I couldn't see any way to make it attack in turn 2, and which deck doesn't have some way of dealing with a 1/1 (2/2 if you have a lord in play) attacker by turn 3?

Well you honestly have a pretty good set up. Warren Instigator with a Krenko, Mob Boss would be nice to see. To kill quicker you could use haste mechanics like Mass Hysteria, Hammer of Purphoros or Fervor. I didn't see Goblin Arsonist or Mogg Flunkies on your list and I can't help but feel like either would do better than the firebrands. Also think about legion loyalist, it's as good as goblin guide.

I have seen some Goblin lists running 4 Mutavault and 2 Blinkmoth Nexus just to make sure they can jam in damage. I would say the following are musts no matter what version of a goblin deck you are playing, if you want to win games you should play these cards (excluding budgetary restrictions, cards are expensive):
4 Goblin Guide
3 Legion Loyalist
4 Mogg War Marshal
4 Goblin Piledriver
4 Goblin Grenade
4 Lightning Bolt
And then I'd highly, highly recommend:
4 Foundry Street Denizen
4 Goblin Chieftain
And only mostly recommend:
4 Warren Instigator
You can go BR Goblins, Mono Red, RW, or RG safely. So it's really up to you.
