Five-Alarm Fire Discussion

Hi, this looks like a great start! Krenko is one of my favorite commanders; he's a solid choice whether you play aggro or combo. Also, mono-red EDH! People tend to bash on red in the format, but I love it!
I think you could scale back the number of lands you have. In general, 37ish is the number of lands I aim for in commander, but Krenko's curve is so low compared to other EDH decks you could even go lower (with mana rocks or ramp, of course). I run 35 lands in my Krenko deck, all basic mountains (talk about a budget mana base!).
Other cards that would fit effectively with Krenko are Goblin Chirurgeon to help protect your board, Impact Tremors is like a mini Purphoros, Skullclamp can give you crazy card advantage, Thornbite Staff and any of your sac outlets like Skirk Prospector or Goblin Bombardment will let you pull off some infinite combos if that's your style, Five-Alarm Fire gives you repeatable lava axes just for combat damage, Fervor if you want more haste, Battle Hymn if you want another Brightstone Ritual, Massive Raid and Mob Justice can one shot someone out of nowhere (not as cool as Goblin War Strike). You've already got my two favorite goblin board wipes with Goblin Assassin and Skirk Fire Marshal, these guys do some real work with Krenko!
Now go wreck some pillow-forting control player!

In:Thousand-Year Elixir, Five-Alarm Fire, Slate of Ancestry, Arms Dealer, Goblin Bombardment, Reforge the Soul, Purphoros, God of the Forge. Need to find 1-3 more cuts for definitely Impact Tremors, and possibly Mass Hysteria and Throne of the God-Pharaoh.

A buddy of mine directed me to your imgur post and suggested that the two of us give you some help improving your decks. I figured I'd start with your Krenko list because I have one myself. I'll start by suggesting some additions and follow-up with what I think you should cut.
Mind's Eye is probably the most applicable draw engine in EDH. It's a must add for any EDH deck missing Green, Blue, or Black. Skullclamp and Slate of Ancestry are extremely potent when Krenko is doing his job, taking great advantage of the amount of tokens he generates.
Wheel of Fortune is your best option for a wheel effect, but it's pricey; Reforge the Soul is the best substitute if you don't wanna break the bank. You could also throw in Magus of the Wheel if you find yourself wanting another one of these.
Other stuff can let you use the many goblins you make as resources to deal damage. Goblin Bombardment is an absolute classic; not only can you use it to finish off opponents, but you can also take care of problematic threats. In a similar vane, I can't believe you're not running Arms Dealer! I've won games by resolving it; the amount of damage it generates is borderline oppressive. In my own deck, I recently removed Voracious Dragon for Burn at the Stake; it costs the same amount of mana, deals more damage, and doesn't require you remove your own goblins.
Lastly, there are plenty of cards that will reward you for each creature you attack with. Hellrider is a personal favortie of mine, a very seat-of-your-pants sort of card. Throne of the God-Pharaoh is pretty new, but I see this becoming an EDH staple in the future. Probably the most powerful card I'll mention here is Five-Alarm Fire, once you have a good amount of counters on this bad boy, nobody is gonna want to mess with you; even if they wipe the board of all creatures, you'll be able to suppress whatever field they have left or try to recuperate.
Mass Hysteria can be a risky add, but on turn one, you can be guaranteed that your opponents will not be able to prepare for what's in your hand for the whole game.
Here's a hypothetical for you: turn one goblin, turn two goblin, turn three Thousand-Year Elixir, on turn four you cast Krenko and immediately make 3 goblins, then on turn five you pay one mana to make 18 goblins before you even play anything, then every turn after that that you control Krenko, you multiply your goblins by a factor of four. And having Thousand-Year Elixir in play means that no one can stop you from activating Krenko at least twice after casting him.

Oh... More nice cards! I will accept your suggestions, but for now I will only buy the main deck cards because I want to play with my friends so damn quickly.I alread have the Goblin Bombardment and Five-Alarm Fire, but the core of Grenzo, Goblin Summoner its on cast it's ability and pull the maximum amount of goblins that's possible of the deck.What do you think about Heartstone? It's a good ability considering Grenzo's. Maybe trading Witches' Eye by it's a good deal.

I own the following cards, and if you want them for the final build they're yours:
Impulsive Maneuvers, Widespread Panic, Custody Battle, Wild Ricochet, Sulfuric Vortex, Five-Alarm Fire, Fighting Chance, Heartless Hidetsugu, Bearer of the Heavens, Wildfire, Charmbreaker Devils, Flame Fusillade, Antagonism, Wild Evocation, Starke of Rath, Sin Prodder, Incite Rebellion, Scrambleverse, Tyrant of Discord, Smoke, Vulshok Battlemaster, Winter Sky, War Elemental, Power Surge, Galvanoth, Grand Melee, Mages' Contest, Chain Reaction, Breaking Point, Witch Hunt, Howl of the Horde, Thieves' Auction, Aftershock, Guttersnipe, Goblin Diplomats, Curse of Stalked Prey, Mob Rule, Mass Mutiny, Ash Zealot, Warp World.
I know a lot of those are more stax-y and group-slug-y than chaotic but some of them are quite chaotic and some of them force opponents to do something they don't want to do.

Neheb is a fun one to brew for! Me and my buddy Capt_telnet have been looking at it for a bit, so I got some more for ya.
Fanatic of Mogis will get you back several times the amount of mana it costs to play him for doing NOTHING!
Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle gets you 5 mana for every mountain you play.
Flameblast Dragon essentially deals 1-(your mana pool) in damage to your opponent for free whenever it attacks, because you get the mana back after the combat step.
Treasonous Ogre is really great in mono-red in general, could help you with your ramp speed a lot.
Whispersilk Cloak works pretty well here too.
