Goblin Assault Discussion

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

This is a surprisingly decent list- but the big thing for budget lists at FNM- SIDEBOARD.
You don't have to grab staple sideboard tools- the more budget your list, the more powerful a transformative sideboard becomes. Changing from red devotion where you want Leyline of Sanctity asap to a Raid Bombardment/Mogg War Marshal tokens list is very powerful, and the flexibility of just saying 'oh, I'll run these 15 cards instead of (all my spells, all my creatures, half of each) is strong.
It also lets you plan out sideboard tools so that some can sit mainboard- Ash Zealot and Harsh Mentor provide seven slots mainboard that can be smoothly swapped for more spells, more creatures, different hate depending on what you need, and planning that out can have immense benifits.
There are lots of options- and finding cards that can flex into a second list with 15 swaps is suprisingly a lot simpler than it seems- just look for cards that are hit hard by spells your opponent will sideboard out so you can swap them in. eg; they ditch their high CMC answers/enchantment removal for more road blocks while you swap to a Goblin Assault/Curse of Stalked Prey list.
Good luck, and happy brewing.

Hordeling Outburst and Dragon Fodder come in over Goblin Assault and Goblin Rabblemaster. I didn't like the fact that both cards forced your goblins to attack. This could be negated with Brudiclad in play by turning them into a different token, but these cards often came down several turns before Brudiclad and would be forced to suicide into my opponents blockers. Outburst and Fodder provide a good amount of tokens that can sit back and wait to be repurposed.
Scourge and Lightning Runner don't always guarantee infinite combat. Someone will eventually be at a higher life total than you and stop Scourge from triggering, unless you have enough tokens on the first swing to trigger enough combats to finish everyone off. The same goes for Lightning Runner. You have to have 4 swing and 4 at the next combat to go infinite. Combat Celebrant does this with one copy and is half the mana.
The Locust God really doesn't do much for the deck except add a token each turn, unless I have a draw engine online. At 6 mana I think I can do better.
I've never been a big fan of clone effects, and the reason to run this guy is for his embalm so he really only gives you the value you're looking for if he's in the yard.
Storm the Vault is often a 4 mana do nothing. It's not terribly difficult for me to get 5 artifacts on board, but the cards is pretty hit or miss. Most of the time I have better things to do with 4 mana, and when I have 5 artifact in play to flip it, I'm usually set on mana.
Also up for consideration to be cut is Sai, Master Thopterist. He's been good in only one game that I can think of where he produced two thopters and drew me one card. I think Hangarback Walker would be a good replacement for this spot.

Okay, so I did some checking around and found an edhrec article on Brudiclad, and they set some good ground rules for the deck:
Firstly, don't go for too many styles of play. You've got a ton of sources for token creation, and there's no reason to short yourself by being greedy about the kinds you'd like. (by example I feel you have too few spells to trigger Young Pyromancer atm)
Secondly, there is a big difference in going big and going wide as well as versatility and power. All your tokens becoming big and hasty isn't the same as being small with special abilities. (big difference in token beaters and token Eldrazi scions)
I would point out that the article covers only two builds: artifacts or spell slinger. You say you want to emphasize a clone/theft build, but honestly I'm not sure Brudiclad is well suited to that. To my knowledge such a build would rather play Mind Control and Threaten than Goblinslide or Goblin Assault (at least to name the weaker cards I see you running).
I will say that if you want to just run a bunch of random good stuff cards to make tokens of, then you need the following package: Soul Separator, Soul Foundry, God-Pharaoh's Gift, and Back from the Brink. Those cards, plus Mimic Vat and the Feldon in your maybe board, act as a perfect graveyard package for whatever other creatures you want to run. Other "packages" you should look into are ETB copy effects (see Blade of Selves, sacrifice outlets (like Goblin Bombardment for having a mass token hoard), and if you decide to run any tokens that generate mana there's always "x-spells".
Best of luck to you! I can definitely say that I'll be trying out that grave package, but if you get to it first let me know how it plays in your meta! Also as a disclaimer I don't know what running some of these packages will do to the power level of your deck. It may be lower tier, or it may be too OP for your playgroup. Use with caution.

Battle-Rattle Shaman will aid your commander; or since you're playing so many small creatures, Ezuri, Claw of Progress would be a nice pumper... Goblin Assault, Awakening Zone, Hadana's Climb Flip, Path of Discovery...

Thanks for your comment Nathanaiel,
Drake Haven was included as I naturally played Faithless Looting and Izzet Charm mainboard to find our combo pieces already, so I decided to add a little more cycle/discard/loot effects and stick Drake Haven mainboard, although I agree that either Goblin Assault or Goblinslide are both good enchantments and make it easier to create creatures. Drake Haven creates a 2/2 which is important to make sure we dont scoop to cards like, Night of Souls' Betrayal and sometimes we can either pressure the board to force our opponent to tap out, or fight through with our tokens, which makes flying on the drake haven tokens nice. However i'm open to suggestions to replace this and cards like Censor if we drop the drake haven. Although paying for the drake every turn may mean there's a better option.
I like the investigate idea and will have a look at which cards may fit the theme best and give me more options. I would still have to include creatures to make sure I dont hit Polymorph which doesnt hit artifacts.
