Some quick suggestions: Foundry Street Denizen is a good 1 drop, Mogg War Marshal is kind of a 3 for 1, Tuktuk the Explorer a very interesting card..., Goblin Assault (not my favorite card but you might be able to make it work), Mass Hysteria if you need haste. There's always room for a Lightning Bolt in EDH decks. Maybe as a finale like card Descent of the Dragons to kill off (some of) your creatures for some big boys.

I find when budget building, its better to try and find cheaper cards with synergies than do straight downgrades.

A set like 4x Mogg War Marshal 4x Goblin Instigator Is cheap and very scary when combined with Goblin Grenade and Goblin Assault / Curse of Stalked Prey .

Cards like Goblin Grenade / Shrapnel Blast also alow for cards like Howl of the Horde to have an oversize impact- 15 damage turn four is no joke. Pack a Bomat Courier , some disposable artifacts, Slag Fiend and you've got yourself a deck that will make people blink.

There are similar options throughout mono red- less exciting but still powerful cards which are just less flexible than other options. Maligned one drops like Stromkirk Noble , or standard funstuff like Breath of Fury .

Browbeat is cheap thanks to Risk Factor , and is still a great budget option.

Other efficient engines Cathartic Reunion / Fiery Temper / The Flame of Keld

@Osbert You're right I do need to add more graveyard hate for sure. I really wish Leyline of the Void would get reprinted so I could justify buying one.

As for the ramp I am trying to be cautious since I am already at a point where my curve is pushing the high end.

The Goblin Assault was added as filler since someone made a suggestion that I needed to have something to help with my early game but cards like Tainted AEther would help with that problem.

I love the Oppression suggestion and maybe Painful Quandary (concerned about my avg cmc costs). If I did add enough discard, then I could add Archfiend of Ifnir but im not sure I want to really go full discard.

Your suggestions were useful though thanks for the help!

I'm not sure about the sideboard just yet. This is a tricky and awesome deck with a lot of room for mind games, interesting sequencing, and overwhelming with goblins as a solid plan B. If the opponent keeps mana open to counter and spot remove, the goblins keep coming and crashing through. If they tap out to wrath the board, a surprise plant token becomes Emrakul. I did come across Kher Keep and Geier Reach Sanitarium, both of which merit playtesting. Blood Moon looks like it has a home in the sideboard at minimum, possibly in lieu of some number of Guttural Response to better cripple Jeskai control, in addition to non-blue decks. Goblin Assault as a side-board or main-board option might be better than it looks what with having plant tokens that don't move. The last thing I can think of tonight is having in the SB Kari Zev's Expertise in conjunction with having 8 rituals to cast IC on T4 using one of the opponent's creatures.

I run the Obelisk to have sth that deals with Enchantments. Scour from Existence was my other option and Chaos Warp the last resort.

Bloodghast is the gift from a friend so it is cool. Kathari Bomber has given me some doubts and thr goblin player in my group seems a but biased insisting in me playing it so I appreciate the opinion.

Fleshbag Marauder was my choice because if I sac it with no other creatures on board I have no penalty, but it might be too conditional and will think of replacing it instead.

Finally, Pitiless Plunderer is indeed good for ramp and along Pawn of Ulamog, Sifter of Skulls or Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder can give me huge amounts of mana or even an infinite loop with Reassembling Skeleton. Ogre Slumlord gives me the black tokens but there aren't many red token generators in the Aristocrats department. Goblin Assault or Krenko perhaps

You given some thought to Curse of Stalked Prey and Tezzeret's Gambit? I feel like rabblemaster/warboss/Goblin Assault/Lightning Coils and a ton of rituals might work really well there.

Goblin Assault is only good in Krenko. Having one's lords attacking every turn is a recipe for a bad time
