ZombieCat on Krenko, Mob Boss

Cards I'd cut:

Caged Sun - It's over the curve of the deck

Helm of the Host - Not really needed

Slate of Ancestry - No reliquary tower

Stoneforge Masterwork - Not needed

Sword of the Paruns - Not needed / doesn't help the deck

Goblin Warrens - Not worth it

In the Web of War - Shared animosity is in your build, good.

Mass Hysteria - Fevor and Hammer are fine

Rise of the Hobgoblins - Nope

Kyren Negotiations - Not worth it

Burn at the Stake - Not worth it, need to lower your curve

Descent of the Dragons - Lower your curve

Chancellor of the Forge - Depends on how much you like this.. otherwise, lower your curve

As for what I'd add...

Chaos Warp - Red has little enchantment removal, this gets around that. Can also target one of your goblins for free stuff

Beetleback Chief - Value

Goblin King - This is a wincon with Blood Moon

Blood Moon - Shuts down strip mine and other annoying lands

Goblin Piledriver - THIS is goblins

Imperial Recruiter - Value

Legion Loyalist - Trample

Ogre Battledriver - Value, haste +2/+0

Reckless One - Value when you have board state

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - Value

Ancient Tomb - T2 Krenko

There's a ton of new goblins in M19, keep an eye out. I've got a Krenko build too if you want to check it out. Hope this helped you out.

  • Since your commander makes tokens and you want to make a horde, there is an infinite token combo with Beetleback Chief and Ashnod's Altar and Nim Deathmantle.
  • Once the two artifacts are in play, cast Beetleback Chief.
  • Beetleback Chief will create 2 tokens.
  • Sacrifice the Chief and 1 Token to Ashnod's Altar, generating 4 generic mana.
  • Nim Deathmantle will trigger, pay 4 to bring the Chief back to the battlefield, which in turn will make 2 more tokens. Keep doing this over and over and you will net 1 Token therefore making infinite tokens

I would cut Second Harvest its a win more card,Goblin War Drums for Gruul War Chant Wrap in Vigor most board wipes don't allow for regen, Collective Unconscious I would run one of the creatures that draws you card, Dragon Fodder Mogg War Marshal does it better, Ezuri's Predation it costs so much mana, I would suggest cards like Goblin Rabblemaster Beetleback Chief if you want something that produces something cheaper, Asceticism can help you protect your guys, if you want extra attack steps Hellkite Charger, Aggravated Assault

Hmm, I think I will reduce some Destruction cards or copy spell.

There two card I think it can add to deck

Chandra's Spitfire

In 4 people game, one creature ETB can increase it 9 power, and it can fly!!

If I cast Pia and Kiran Nalaar, the Chandra's Spitfire can increase itspower 27, it means you can dealt many damages to one opponents.

Neheb, the Eternal

In 4 people game, one creature ETB can increase 8 red mana to your mana pool at main phase 2.

It let you can cast bigger X spell to knock down the opponents.

I can cast small mana spell like Beetleback Chief at main phase 1, and I can gain 332 mana at main phase 2, than cast Tempt with Vengeance with X = 17!!

Why do you not use Panharmonicon ?It can double Purphoros's ability damage (trigger twice), and it also can creat double token if the creature like Beetleback Chief enter the battlefield

NeverTheTwelve on Do the trick, Zada!

Yup, it is. The card list you have to worry about is limited to the commons on gatherer plus on MTGO and as you can see Beetleback Chief is common. Same is true for Chainer's Edict for example. Moreover you can see the "This deck is Pauper EDH legal" in green on the right that is quite self-explanatory :P
