You could switch out the Goblin Lackey for Warren Instigator if you want it to be modern legal

Maybe run Gempalm Incinerator for the damage? And maybe also Warren Instigator even though it is a worse Goblin Lackey?

I think Adorned Pouncer would be better than Warren Instigator since you have one other goblin in here and adorned Pouncer can be recurred. Also as a backup plan you should include Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker because if you mutate her into a non-legend you can go infinite

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.

Strengths:

Perk #1: Tons of great combos in this deck.

Perk #2: Every card fits an awesome theme.

Perk #3: There is a lot of low converted mana cost in this deck, which allows you to ramp up really quickly.

Weaknesses:

Issue #1: You can't have 7 copies of a card - Therefore, you would need to remove 3 copies of Goblin Chieftain.

My Suggested Fix: Add 3 different cards. You could replace the 3 copies of Goblin Chieftain with 2 copies of Foundry Street Denizen and 1 Mountain. Low cost, high value for early game consistency, and better mana consistency in the deck.

Issue #2: There are a lot of high rarity cards in this deck - which means you can only play a certain number of copies of each card. Because there is so many high-rarity creatures, you have a high likelihood to draw dead cards.

Example: If you draw 3 Warren Instigator in your first hand, you would have 2 dead cards in your hand because you can only play 1 Warren Instigator per game. It's a legendary.

My Suggested Fix: Fill in the 3 missing copies of Goblin Chieftain with cards like Burning Inquiry, Knollspine Invocation, or Bag of Holding. That would allow you to discard the useless cards and get some value out of them.

Overall: I rate this deck 4 out of 5. Great theory-crafting, great combos, but there are some fundamental issues with it. Luckily, those issues can easily be fixed.

My spoilers in the comment above arnt working for me so im trying something different. "If you want to sift through some cards you can look at each section, but I would recommend just looking at the first grouping to start with, as I went a bit too far with the other lists. Those lists are fine to just look at ideas or "good cards" but there are far too many to call them suggestions.

Vial Smasher the Fierce is a goblin and could help throw some extra damage around. Mirage Mirror is great in any deck. Some anthems like Obelisk of Urd , Konda's Banner , The Immortal Sun and War Horn or even Ashenmoor Liege , Shared Animosity might help out the small bodied goblins. A couple lands worth considering are Rogue's Passage and Rakdos Carnarium . Legion Warboss should be slotted in as well as Warren Instigator . Goblin Smuggler and cards like Rogue's Passage and Suspicious Bookcase would be good at forcing some damage through. With that said Blood Mist should be in your list. Treasure Nabber ? Goblin War Cry ?

Goblins are small by themselves. So I think your best bet is gonna be anthems, buffs and combat tricks.
