I'd say Death & Taxes or UW Spirits. Both are good right now, and both can be highly customized for your meta, which always makes it easier to buy into a deck.
The rest are not worth it in my book. Either you can't upgrade it, or it just isn't good (too unexplored, which isn't bad, or just Infect).

I say BW Tokens, Ponza, and MOTHERFUCKING DEATH CLOUD.
Sorry. Deck looked sweet, I even want to play it. I hate green.
But all of them seems solid. Somewhat established decks are good ways to go. BW in particular is very budget friendly.
I also say the Death Cloud deck because spice is fun, and I'm of the opinion of playing what you love most (Blue Moon for me). However, I'm not sure how much it would easily transfer to other decks.
I'd test em all, see what would be best for you. As everyone else said.

@RamenNoodles Not really. It just isn't that good here. The list is very tight, and it would only be a one-of (not worth it in my opinion).
Thanks for the suggestion though!

Lightning Bolt. If it's just a challenge budget, sure, but if not, you seriously need the Bolt.

Seems neat.. but everything that you listed would not function well as a deck (the CMC of all of those is too much). Some of these would be interesting in a Dragon Stompy style deck (prison/Blood Moon, essentially), with Simian Spirit Guide and Pyretic Ritual or something as mana acceleration. I think that'd be kinda cool.
So it seems possible, but you can't have a ton of expensive CMC cards. I don't even know what 1/2 drops would work. Neat concept, that's for sure.

It better synergies with the deck (Reckless Bushwhacker), and with no fetch lands, you aren't really helping out the opponent with their spells. You usually cast your burn to finish them off, so the only way for them to get stuff in your grave is from themselves.
I will admit Goblins is not even tiered, but at least it is a small case of the Crypt doing something.

@TuckerMTG Not really, however, it is terrible in this version of Goblins (part of the reason). This is an aggro deck, so Aether Vial wouldn't create enough of an advantage to be worthwhile. In addition, it is a hardcore nonbo with Reckless Bushwhacker and Goblin Bushwhacker.
Thanks for the suggestion though!

Just so you know, Teferi's Protection is not legal in Modern.

Here's my Goblins deck for some reference:

Your curve is way too high for this deck. You should cap out at 3 drops, and only run a maximum of 6, unless you run mana acceleration/Warren Instigator, of which you'd need a full playset of.
Your deck seems slow. You should really max out on your 1/2 drop goblins. Seeing as you are the token route, have 4 Foundry Street Denizen, 4 Mogg War Marshal and 4 Goblin Piledriver. Those are your best cards.
Max out on Bushwhackers. They compliment the tokens very well.
You can also drop the land count. 22 lands and red never mix, which is why getting lower is important.
Also, you should really get to 60 cards. Increases your consistency for drawing what you need.
Hope that helps, at least somewhat.

Just so you know, Grenzo, Havoc Raiser is not modern legal. As fantastic as it may be.

@frusciante7 Not quite. Too many slots, for not enough reward, in my book. There are two Seas in the sideboard, but that's the extent I think you should have. I think adding more would dilute the UR control aspect, reducing the power. But that's my opinion.

@BobbaFedUp Always and forever. Join the Goblin tribe! We are quite nice to each other.. not as much to our opponents.. especially elves..

That's for Legacy. Goblins want to win by turn 3-5, which is when Aether Vial finally starts to help. I'd rather have mana acceleration. Also, lists are decently tight, so it's hard to fit it in. It seems good, but in actuality it's not that great, from experience.
August 16, 2017 12:46 a.m.
@ filthyc4sual I'll have to try it. Might pick up a playset soon. I do agree, it is better, but Pyretic is on hand, and triggers Reckless, so it has some merit.
And it's terrible in modern Goblins. The advantage it gains is through a longer game. Goblins wants to be aggro, and taking a turn off to play it slows you down too much (not to mention doesn't trigger the Whackers). It does have it's own sub-archetype though.
August 16, 2017 12:40 a.m.
@filthyc4sual not as good as you might think. It would add too many two drops. You want as many one drops to power up the Whackers. Bomat adds card advantage, which is sorely needed, and Pyretic adds mana acceleration, which is also needed to power stuff out. Though I might want Simian Spirit Guide instead.

Well, as it is obvious I have a clear bias, thanks everyone for the help, I will hopefully choose something by the PPTQ, or maybe learn from my mistakes from this one. Who knows!
As for the lists themselves, particularily the Goblins list, does it seem fine to you all?
August 15, 2017 11:31 p.m.
I will probably go with Goblins then! Thanks everyone! Does the list seem fine?
Just an aside, @rothgar13 and @filthyc4sual, not quite as bad as you think. At least for Blue Moon, I'm currently 10-0 against Death's Shadow and 2-0 against Eldrazi Tron (not much E-Tron near me). I've found Bolt to be good now, but then again that's my personal meta. Also, previously I've been using Cryptic Serpent as a finisher with Thought Scour, and it's been good. I am also of the opinion Bolt is still good, but again, personal experience.
August 15, 2017 11 p.m.
Is it more that Blue Moon is bad now, or is it the fact of aggro decks being easier in the mind/a better choice against smaller metas? I'm more than adept with both decks, so it doesn't matter either way. Kinda hoping to play control, but can understand Goblins being a better choice.
