JoeBob21, I really appreciate your input! I don't think I will add most of those cards any time soon for one reason, They don't really get me closer to winning. One very big weakness I see in fast commander decks is that if they don't win fast, they run out of steam. My goal is to do the opposite with my board state, my damage output, or maybe even both growing exponentially every turn. Adding one use cards like Goblin Grenade are a step in the wrong direction since I only get 5 damage out of it, where Mob Justice can give me infinite damage if used at the right time. If a one use card doesn't either save my life, kill someone, or set me up to win very soon, I wouldn't add it. Goblin Lookout is a nice card but I can get so much more power out of Coat of Arms and other cards that tapping for +2/+0 is a little underwhelming. I used to run Dragon Fodder but I decided that two mana could have so much more potential in this deck. For the exact same price I can castImpact Tremors, and Tremors is going to do much more than two 1/1s. I may end up adding Goblin Glory Chaser, as it's a one drop that can be relevant for multiple turns which can help ensure I'm one of the first players in a game to have a blocker.

Love your deck! I used to run a Krenko EDH too. Here are some cards I had in mine (i totally get it if you don't want some of them, my deck was all about attacking)

Goblin Lookout is an attack-oriented card but its still good. Dragon Fodder is just quick and easy. Goblin Grenade is very big damage for a very small price. Goblin Glory Chaser is a pretty good one-drop.All in all +1 good job building.

Goblin Lookout would have to tap, the sledder type gobos are instant, and only restriction is number of creatures you have to sac.

If you can run gob grenade, you should run it at all costs. I'd drop fireslingers, and cut some number of matrons (too pricey for all 4) I also don't think the multiple 1 drops with haste are a good idea. I think it's better to run the eight 1 drop 2/2s and maybe some number of the new 1/1 haste tap, to ping(although i run goblin arsonist in my pauper list. I'm always much more likely to sac a goblin, than for some reason hold it back and not turn it sideways).

and jam grenade all day. goblins is at its best when you drop cheap 1 drop gobos. get in for a few points of damage, make every swing connect, using the sledders to force no-win blocks. then... any time with 10 or less life you're in lethal range, with some combination of bolt, grenade, and fireblast.

Why no Goblin Lookout? It's much better than Goblin Sledder for sure!

This deck is really simple. Terrarion and Ichor Wellspring to Draw Cards. Lightning Axe and Flame Slash to kill any size creatures early to mid-game. Drop a ton of Goblins with Dragon Fodder, Krenko's Command, and Kuldotha Rebirth. Once Goblins are out, Brightstone Ritual gets a ton of manna to fuel your Fireball for board wipes or damage to the face. Goblin Lookout pumps your goblins for a big swing, while in the same turn, Goblin War Strike does 1 player damage for each goblin you control. This deck usually wins on turn 4.

This all looks great except Goblin Grenade according to .

Also, Goblin Sledder has a more offensive alternative which can be a lot better, although you can only use his ability once, Goblin Lookout can do a lot more damage.

Love the deck. I built a budget Purphoros deck during a friends $100 challenge but I'm looking to upgrade it, and this is exactly what I was looking for. While a lot of your synergies were the same as mine, there's a handful of cards I ran and wanted to hear what you thought.

Arms Dealer, Dictate of the Twin Gods, Forgotten Cave, Furnace of Rath, Goblin Lookout, Goblin Offensive, Goblin Rally, Goblin Wizard, Norin the Wary, Skirk Fire Marshal, Smoldering Crater, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, Fanatic of Mogis

A feel like the best version of this deck wants to go wider. It wants to spawn as many goblins as possible as quickly as possible, buff them, then alpha strike your opponents. A few cards I think you should try out Patron of the Akki, Quest for the Goblin Lord, Goblin Lookout, Dragon Fodder, Krenko's Command, Mogg War Marshal, Hordeling Outburst, Beetleback Chief, Empty the Warrens, Hammer of Purphoros, Lightning Greaves, and Door of Destinies.
