Goblin Gathering Discussion

Typically the cards that will easily never see EDH play are the cards that summon more copies of itself or get better as duplicates are played ( Undead Servant , Goblin Gathering , Growth Cycle , or that white soldier creature that searches for more copies of itself) or have to do with "same name" effects (so Circu, Dimir Lobotomist and Dragonlord Kolaghan will never be anyone's commander). Here's my submission:
Rakdos Roll Call
For each nontoken, nonlegendary creature you control on the battlefield, you may search your library for another card of the same name and put it into your hand. Shuffle your library afterward. Then, you lose 1 life for each card in your hand.
Exile Rakdos Roll Call as it resolves.
If you hear your name called, it's best not to answer.

I also should have addressed why there are so many Goblin Gathering
They are annoying early in the game, when they dump a couple of Goblins on the field.
However, they can be DEVASTATING in the late game, when they can dump around five to seven Goblins on the field.
If those Goblins are pumped up by an Artefact, or if Heat Stroke is on the field, that can mean a major comeback for the Horde.

Izzet generally doesn't struggle against aggro. Especially right now. My advice is that if you want to give this deck flavor, you're looking at Arclight Phoenix , Crackling Drake , Erratic Cyclops , and Guttersnipe .
What I'm curious about is where your removal is. I suggest flipping into midrange. It's flexible and what Izzet does best. For your instants and sorceries I suggest 2x Lava Coil , 3x Jaya's Greeting , 3x Sinister Sabotage , 4x Opt , 2-3x Mission Briefing , and 2x Ral's Outburst over your current noncreature spells. Why aren't you playing at least one copy of Chemister's Insight ?
Your curve is too saturated to be an "aggro" deck, which is best defined by keeping your curve low to outpace your opponent through damage. What you should consider is changing into midrange, as it's more of what this deck is seeking to perform as.
My last note is that you are playing some bad cards. Dreadhorde Twins , Invading Manticore , Bone to Ash , Goblin Gathering , No Escape , Nahiri, Storm of Stone , Sleep Paralysis , and Slimebind . Cards (not already mentioned) that are bad in an aggro deck are Murmuring Mystic , Shivan Dragon (seriously not a good card), your whole counterspell suite, the Chandras, and Izzet Guildgate will slow you down behind your opponents.

While you are resolving the effect of Goblin Gathering , it is still on the stack and not in the graveyard. The last part of the resolution of a spell is that it will be put into the graveyard from the stack.
608.2k As the final part of an instant or sorcery spell’s resolution, the spell is put into its owner’s graveyard. As the final part of an ability’s resolution, the ability is removed from the stack and ceases to exist.

Goblin Gathering is a card that lets you create 2 goblin tokens + the amount of Goblin Gathering in the graveyard. If I play it, and there is no other Goblin Gatherings in the graveyard, does this count as 1 in the graveyard to make 3 tokens?

Instead of Goblin Gathering , maybe replace it with Hordeling Outburst ? You're specifically wanting those 1 powers, so maybe things like Warren Instigator , Goblin Instigator , or Squee, Goblin Nabob ?
