A decent base here, though I feel like you're missing a fair number of staples for this deck. Here is a list of cards you could try out Siege-Gang Commander, Goblin Chieftain, Goblin King, Goblin Chirurgeon, Goblin Lackey, Warren Instigator, Door of Destinies, Quest for the Goblin Lord, Goblin Ringleader, Patron of the Akki, Cavern of Souls, and Empty the Warrens.

Have you tried Shivan Harvest. It's a pet card of mine in red token decks. Trading a 1/1 for an opponent's land is a great way to set people behind.

Goblin Lackey seems like an obvious missed card.

You should replace Zealous Conscripts with Lightning Crafter for the combo with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. In a low tutor deck like this you almost never get off 2-card combos like Kiki/Zealous. Lightning Crafter works just as well and is tutorable by all your goblin tutors. Also it can pick off creatures for you.

Speaking of goblin tutors, Moggcatcher is worth considering, but might be a little slow here.

You do NOT have enough high cost artifacts to justify Daretti, Scrap Savant, or Scrap Mastery really.

What the hell is Mycosynth Lattice in here for?

If Coat of Arms is worth including than so is Shared Animosity.

Mountainwalk isn't really that relevant, so Goblin King is really just a 3-drop that gives your creatures +1/+1. If there are any goblins you could cut, he's first in line.

Some more ramp and ritual would probably speed this up a bit. Infernal Plunge maybe. Ruby Medallion definitely.

I am not particularly interested in either goblins or merfolk, so I am not interested in this set, but I do hope for some good reprints. I believe that it is safe to presume that Lord of Atlantis, Goblin King, Goblin Warchief, Goblin Chieftain, and/or Goblin War Drums will be in this set, and Master of Waves would be very nice, as well. I shall predict that the "face cards" shall be Talrand, Sky Summoner and Krenko, Mob Boss, because they are two of the best representatives of their respective creature types.

I've got copies of Rift Bolt and Lava Spike, but then it starts to feel like budget burn at that point. Why not just go full Naya Burn. Same with Lightning Helix and Boros Charm.

I want to keep it mainly mono-red creature based, because it makes the Bushwhackers/Lords hit that much harder. And the two copies of Blood Moon don't affect me in the slightest, but hose other decks entirely. Almost think a Goblin King might be warranted in the sideboard.

I have a Goblin King and was thinking about putting him in there. as for Goblin Arsonist, I thought about him, but figured the effects from my other 1 drops were a little more beneficial than the 1 damage he inflicts when he dies. I'll have to look into Tormod's Crypt It may be helpful. Thanks for the input!

Cards for sideboard, Tormod's Crypt, and Goblin King. Crypt, for a bit of grave hate, and King to give that Blood Moon a little added use. Maindeck changes, if you're running Goblin Grenade, why not run Goblin Arsonist as well?

I would skip Frogtosser Banneret, all your spells are so cheap that it's not really relevant to make them even cheaper on turn 4. I'm not sure what to think about Krenko's Enforcer, it's not that strong by itself so I would recommend to add two additional Goblin Chieftains or Goblin King, who would make all your goblins stronger and unblockable if you're playing against a red deck. Go up to 4x bolt, at the expense of Doom blade. I think you have too much removal, you don't really need 7 kill spells, replace most of them with burn, so that you can both kill early blockers and burn your opponent.

Some other cards that are worth to look at:

Goblin Guide - expensive but it's pure win.

Goblin Wardriver - A bit slow, but he can really boost your attackers.

Searing Blood - Good early burn, can kill a blocker and damage your opponent at the same time.

Skullcrack - Sideboard

Quest for the Goblin Lord - Not the best 1-drop, but if you have maybe one or two of them it can boost you small goblins quite a bit.

If you want you can check out my goblin deck and compare. The only card I'm not sure about is Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician, but he's actually performed all right.

I play a krenko deck myself and love it! Hate that Worldfire is banned haha but there are so many win cons here it's rediculous. I noticed you don't have a Voracious Dragon, which is honestly a great dragon to play in these infinite goblin decks. Burn at the Stake has saved me more than a few times late game as well. Thousand-Year Elixir is great so you aren't waiting that extra turn to use Krenko and running a Goblin King pairs well with Blood Moon
