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.

While this deck is sweet, You are better off playing with these changes. I've played goblins for a few years now, and Oath of the Gatewatch has solidified the list. This is what I would change:
The Krenko is way too slow for how you want to win: Bushwhacking. The strongest lists are called 8-Whack and while some have some have a few differences, they all do the same thing. Now piledriver is a really strong guy, but draws way too much hate. You would rather it be a mogg war marshal. Mogg War Marshal does so much for the deck! It is pretty decent against control because of its' back-up goblin when he leaves play. He also synergies well with piledriver, bushwhackers, Goblin Chieftain!!!, and denizen. So... everything. The fanatics are can really be a awkward sometimes, but that 1 damage is a sneaky way to finish the game. More importantly, though, it kills Birds of Paradise and Noble Hierarch. In the sideboard, you don't want shock. Whatever you want shock to do, fanatic does the job already. Skullcrack is great against life gain affects. You may run into a few pesky cards like Blessed Alliance and Collective Brutality. The Reality Hemorrhage is good against affinity and Kor Firewalker.
Here is an example decklist that is the most common shell for 8-whack: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/modern-goblins-49982#paper
Here is a really sweet version of the deck you may want to try for some fun games: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/modern-r-48563#paper
I could talk about Goblins all day, but this is just a quick recommendation for you. If you want, I can show you a really fun list I put together that plays Warren Instigator (It's janky but sweet).
