Creature — Goblin Rogue
When Goblin Instigator enters the battlefield, create a 1/1 red Goblin creature token.
Goblin Instigator Discussion

Dreadhorde Arcanist / Young Pyromancer ; strong and meta, but end up defining any deck they are in. Break Through the Line is an interesting enabler, but cards that aren't dealing damage are a little weak here.

I forgot to mention Mogg War Marshal as well. He's basically a double-effect Goblin Instigator which I see you already run. Echo makes him super-easy to kill off, but he also makes a good target for a sacrifice outlet on the same turn he enters play.

I would consider dropping Temple of the False God since it's a dead land if it's out too early and most of your deck really just wants red mana anyway. In the open slot consider adding Bloodmark Mentor . I know he's ~$1.30, but he gives all your goblins first strike and is 2cmc.
I love goblins myself, so hopefully this turns out for you.

I love a good Goblin deck, and the Pauper format reminds me of play back when I started so many, many years ago. +1
Goblin Matron is/was a staple in my old Goblin builds, and she's Pauper-legal according to:
Also Goblin Instigator could be useful for a cheap token that you can use for one of your 2 or 3 'Sacrifice a Goblin' outlets I see. He's like a half-power Mogg War Marshal that I see you're already running.
Not sure how much mana is an issue for you, but along the same lines as the token-creation thing, Skirk Prospector is an awfully good way to generate mana with Goblins. I see a lot of quick-mana plays, a little card draw and some constant mana generation and you could really speed through your library and unleash a swarm in a hurry.
Either way, nice build!

For a Krenko deck you want to go as wide as possible as quickly as possible so cards like these are very important Goblin Instigator , Dragon Fodder , Krenko's Command , Hordeling Outburst , Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin , Beetleback Chief , Empty the Warrens , and Door of Destinies .
Also if you're not on a budge Cavern of Souls .
As for what I'd cut, Lightning Crafter is good but is too slow for this decks game plan. Mogg Raider and Goblin Sledder are too much of an investment. With how wide this deck goes you will far out match your opponent's ability to block all of your things and even if we're assuming their all just 1/1s the difference between 25 damage and 30 damage isn't much. Sensation Gorger is interesting, but a bit too narrow, and very unlikely to actually workout. Akki Drillmaster feels like overkill with how many Haste enablers you have in the deck. Red Elemental Blast also too narrow, but if you have a lot of blue decks in your meta then I guess it is fine.
