I somehow managed to go 2-2 in my local tournament, 1st day playing the deck, I was very impressed with its killing power.

Goblin Guidex4 => Fanatical Firebrandx4 Fanatical is a good cheap option. However, I found that goblin 1 red mana for 2/2 KILLED other opponents. This single card actually led people to discord A LOT of cards. Which helped me. MAY look for a replacement in the future. (Ragavan, Nimble Pilfererx4, If I ever get rich)

Ghitu Lavarunnerx2 => Monastery Swiftspearx2 No explanation was really needed, it was really just a cheaper/crappier version, managed to find 2 more at the store.

Goblin Chainwhirlerx4 => Kumano Faces Kakkazan  Flipx4 Goblin Chain was OKAY, there were 1/2 times where it actually did so much good. BUT, Kumano is cheaper, (does almost the same thing Chronicle 1) and also turns into a 2/2 and gives a creature a counter if you've summoned one on that turn. Which with this deck is likely to happen.

Magma Sprayx4 => Lava Spikex4 I'm not really happy about the limitations of either of these cards, But Lava Spike helped against planeswalkers and also make it easier to kill the opponent.

Its really hard for me to tell if it is a good idea to keep Tormenting Voice/Cathartic Reunion OR The Flame of Keld

I found that the Flame of Keld's draw power was enough to get me through some situations. There were moments where I wish I didn't have either a Tormenting Voice or Cathartic Reunion. This showed some flaws while facing players with counters.

as recommended by Tcbrgr Vexing Devil Or Rift Bolt would be good replacements.

I overall really like this list...ive been on a red deck wins kick lately and I think it looks pretty good!

I think I like Kumano Faces Kakkazan  Flip or even maindecking Roiling Vortex over The Flame of Keld.

Maybe consider Dragon rage channeler over Ghitu Lavarunner... Goblin Guide over Fanatical Firebrand...

Other good cards in the Modern pool is Lava Spike, Rift Bolt, Vexing Devil...

the big expensive cards for mono red is probably Eidolon of the Great Revel.... or Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer

Nice deck! It’s great to see the classic Mogg Fanatic in your sideboard, and you may want to also consider Fanatical Firebrand. With having haste, it may offer some nice versatility on the turn it enters the battlefield. Have fun with the deck!

Is everyone taking their turn at the same time? How often does a turn 1 loss off Raging Goblin, or Fanatical Firebrand, or Goblin Javelineer, or other 1-mana hasty gob happen?

Squee_Spirit_Guide, some of the cards you listed are indeed classics. Depending on the situation, I think Mogg Fanatic could work better than Fanatical Firebrand, plus I like that Goblin Grenade gives a flat damage boost instead of have to ramp it up with mana like Blaze (although Blaze has always been one of my favorites). Goblin Piledriver looks sweet, and if I can get my hands on some, I think they’ll find a nice home in this deck. Thank you so much for checking out this deck!

Fireball decks will always remind me of classic magic, and I feel like this is as red deck as it gets. And I really enjoy seeing Fanatical Firebrand get a good place to shine. He's definitely the second best turn one monkey there is : ) First best relative to price, for sure. And I just realized that under Torbran, firebrand becomes a haste creature and a lightning bolt in one, which is super good.

I mean, there are decks that play red, and then there are decks where someone just stirred all the ingredients into a big magma pot, and this is definitely that kinda red deck : ) Awesome!

Last combo: Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Thornbite Staff + Any creature that can sacrifice itself for free damage such as Fanatical Firebrand, Goblin Firestarter, or Mogg Fanatic.

Only sacrifice the tokens so you will always have the original to make copies of.
