Do you gain control of a creature before ETB effects trigger?

A player has Heartless Summoning, and Flayer of the Hatebound on the battlefield.

1) That player casts Butcher Ghoul and it dies due to Heartless Summoning.
2) Undying triggers and the player nominates a target for Flayer of the Hatebound's ETB trigger.

Does Butcher Ghoul deal 2 or 1 (-1/-1 from Heartless Summoning) damage to the target?

it re-enters the battlefield as a 1/1, so Flayer of the Hatebound's trigger deals 1 damage

of course you are welcome to use Giant Growth or even Auger Spree to buff that damage
