I think Goblin Cratermaker would be a good choice in a more budget list.

I have been keeping an eye on RNA. So far nothing has really struck me as a very significant improvement though.

Essence Capture is a bit restrictive and honestly creatures aren't really an issue most of the time, so if anything 'non-creature' is what I'd rather see.

I'm already running around 10 flying creatures at the moment, so I don't think there's a great need for Skatewing Spy , and like you said, it's basically Herald of Secret Streams otherwise.

I actually do like Priest of Forgotten Gods , but I think having to sacrifice 2 other creatures is a bit demanding here and i feel that it's going to just be too many hoops to jump through most times. this is another card I'd probably play in a budget list but not otherwise.

If Burning-Tree Vandal was a loot effect and not a rummage effect I might be wiling to run it, but rummage is just not very good. Rummaging Goblin

Bedevil is basically a straight upgrade to Dreadbore but I'm not absolutely certain that I'm happy with the colored mana cost increases. It is a card I would want to test for a while and since it's like $7 I probably won't get around to testing it in the immediate future. I would say feel free to try it though since it doesn't seem too difficult to cast where it's only an extra which is our main color.

Not sure if you've checked out RNA spoilers yet, just curious if there's any cards jumping out at you that i've missed.

Essence Capture - BB counterspell, little harder to cast maybe, only counters a creature, but we get a +1/+1 counter at pseudo-instant speed which is nice potentialy. (Better in creature heavy meta obviously)

Skatewing Spy - I know, this is basically new herald of secret streams, but this one does something more, it grants evasion but it also lets you block enemy fliers. (Granted, i could just steal them or force a sacrifice to deal with problematic fliers instead)

Priest of Forgotten Gods - Tap to sac 2 creatures, each opponents loses 2 life, sacs a creature then we gain 2 black and draw a card. This is just a lot of stuff happening at once, but it's all stuff we aren't sad about. It is slow for a sac outlet due to mandatory 2 sacrifices & tap to sacrifice, but an interesting card to consider.

Burning-Tree Vandal - Generates his own +1/+1 counter on ETB and is a repeatable loot effect... probably not worth it overall, but at least worth a thought.

Bedevil - versatile removal, auto-include in my queen marchesa deck but im not as 100% certain it's a windmill slam include here.

That's about all I'm seeing and most of those aren't even that enticing really. I feel like priest of the forgotten gods is my most likely include (maybe bedevil) but even that's not really exciting due to it's limitations.
