Goblin Bombardment is not modern-legal. Your land count is way, way, WAY too low - 21 is a minimum for this kind of deck. Knucklebone Witch and Boggart Birth Rite seem bad. Goblin Chieftain should be in here; he's invaluable. I'd always rather have Krenko, Mob Boss over Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician. And I second 's suggestions to put in Mogg War Marshal over Krenko's Command.

Probably not lol.
Honestly I don't know what I could do to make it better besides changing up some sideboard options, but even then I'm not sure how much better it could be. Budget wasn't the aim when I started this project, but I was really pleased when I finished and saw how cheap it is.
Of course there are always different goblins to use, and probably the most room for change would be the Fodder Launch changed out for Tarfire to lower the curve even more and it can still be used for face damage without the requirement of sacrificing a creature. The cool thing is that it can still be brought back with Boggart Birth Rite, but the main reason I didn't use it is that I need 3 Tarfires to do the job of one Fodder Launch.
Of course, the two cards that make almost any goblin tribe deck better are Krenko, Mob Boss and Wort, Boggart Auntie. I specifically avoided both of them though because they are used all the time and just aren't very fun.
Thanks for your interest in this fun deck, if you have the cards to throw it together I can't recommend it enough. It's very fun :)

Well that Doom Engine sure is an insane idea with Shrapnel Blast. Sweet baby Jesus.
I have, and if you look around at my red decks you'll understand, too many decks that use Impact Tremors lol. Absolutely my favorite red enchantment. However, the reason I like Shenanigans is that I can actually reanimate it with Boggart Birth Rite, Frogtosser Banneret makes it cheaper, and O'Hagen gets to pistol whip Farva whenever you play it.
The Forge guy would blow the budget, but I can definitely understand why you suggested it. That's nuts.

Oh I hope you do! I've built this in proxy since I didn't have most of the cards either and it's so fun... It can hit a wall if you keep drawing explosions and can't get the creatures down, but that's what Goblinslide and Goblin Assault are in the sideboard for if you need help. I've only had it come up a couple of times, but all you have to do is time your spells and pace yourself if you have a questionable draw. The Kaboomist really is the star of the show because he provides so much by giving you fuel for damage and tokens and for lethal can himself be targeted with a grenade to end the game. Boggart Birth Rite has proven invaluable as well since it can bring almost anything back, but also can be used to play and replay a chain of things that can end the game in one turn as soon as turn 5, or even turn 4 if you get the right damage out per turn.

Sounds like you are going for Modern Goblins, right? If so, Goblin Grenade is an amazing card choice. I was just looking at Modern options for goblins actually, and there are a ton of interesting things from the Lorwyn days. I think a nice finisher is Voracious Dragon from Conflux since you can attack all out on turn 5 and if they aren't dead you can just drop the Dragon and eat all of your goblins for a lot of instant face damage. Of course, a couple of Goblin Grenade's work too, but this would be a fun drop and if nothing else you just got a massive turn 5 flyer. Goblin Bushwhacker is another nice upgrade to Reckless Bushwhacker. Basically the same card, but I like it just a little better. Off hand, the last one that seems like a must is Warren Instigator. If unchecked, doublestrike will give you two free goblin drops. If nothing else, it'll draw fire away from other targets.
Let me know what you want to do or share your decklist and I'll take a look. There are some very interesting black options as well, like a deck that runs 4x Goblin Grenade and 4x Fodder Launch sounds disgusting. You can even run Frogtosser Banneret to make Launch cheaper and also play cards like Earwig Squad to ruin your opponents dreams. You'd also have access to Boggart Birth Rite to get almost any card back from your graveyard other than land and (unfortunately) Grenade.
Many options. It's interesting that you bring up Modern Goblins because I was just researching that very topic before tapped out came back online :)
