Hey, nice budget version of Brass.
Cards a $1 or less each to consider adding:
- Command Tower
- Exotic Orchard
- Unclaimed Territory
- Crumbling Necropolis
- Dimir Aqueduct
- Rakdos Carnarium
- Izzet Boilerworks
- Rogue's Passage
- Grixis Panorama
- Spectral Sailor
- Changeling Outcast
- Warkite Marauder
- Kitesail Freebooter
- Departed Deckhand
- Ruin Raider
Command Tower is one of the best lands for multicolored decks in Commander and it's $1. Pirates have to do combat damage to a player to trigger Brass this makes Pirates who have flying/other evasion important because they can more easily attack and not be blocked thus do combat damage to a player. Wonder can give all your Pirates flying as long as it's in your graveyard and you control one Island. More Pirates with flying/other evasion makes Bident and Mission good repeatable draw since for each Pirate who does combat damage to a player you draw a card.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Walk the Plank
- Heartless Pillage
- Thaumatic Compass
- Vance's Blasting Cannons
- Dusk Legion Dreadnought
- Lightning-Rig Crew
- Storm Fleet Swashbuckler
- Headstrong Brute
- Rigging Runner
- Storm Fleet Aerialist
Good luck with your deck.

epott It's not silly! I totally get not playing the ascension, but thought it should be recommended in the event you hadn't thought of it! I also get the downsides to Rampage of the Clans. I'm a bit of a chaotic/go-for-the-crazy-move kind of player so it's a card I love. Glad you like the Tower Defense rec. That was an easy one to upgrade.
I do love the flavor you have going on in your Artifact department. I missed that before!
Lastly, I notice a lack of board wipes (unless I missed something on your list or it's another flavor/casual choice over competitive then you can ignore this). But Wave of Vitriol, The Great Aurora, Bearer of the Heavens, Obliterate, Decree of Annihilation, Hour of Devastation could be some options for you. (Creeping Renaissance as something to bring back a permanent type if you're looking for that as well.)
If you have the time I'll take feedback on my budget version of Gallia. It's far from great and I have yet to actually use the deck but it never hurts to get another pair of eyes on something. No worries if you don't!

Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor are must-runs in black, but maybe belong on your "Sideboard" for now. Diabolic Intent is also super good with tokens and might be cheap enough to run outright. Enlightened Tutor has enough targets in your deck also.
Other general bombs: Catastrophe (an incredible wipe in general, often slept upon), Axis of Mortality (wtf why does nobody run this, you should exercise your queenly authority and tell people that their life total now belongs to the crown), Solemn Simulacrum (ramp in non-green, though sadly in the same slot as your gen at 4 mana), Vedalken Orrery (surprise! always good), Exquisite Blood (biiiig time lifegain, can be a ridiculous difference maker)
Tokens: Anger, Filth (combos huge with anyone playing Urborg, or even just any black deck), Archetype of Aggression (Trample combos really well with Deathtouch, since you only need to deal one damage to the creature to be lethal and the rest of the damage tramples over), Archetype of Finality, Street Riot, Berserkers' Onslaught, Rage Reflection, Brave the Sands (Vigilance also combos really well First Strike + Death Touch, as does being able to block multiple creatures—basically a wall effect like Norn's Annex), Eldrazi Monument (very cool with token generation), Goblin War Drums, Intimidation, Mirror Entity, Nahiri, Storm of Stone (cutie Nahiri!), Radiant Destiny, Silverwing Squadron (token time), Grenzo, Havoc Raiser (Goads, pretty damn good card, seems popular in Marchesa decks), Skullclamp (big time card draw for your 1/1 tokens), Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs (another wall/token generator), Anointed Procession (double tokens!)
Other Royal Shit: Dreadhorde Invasion (creates Armies (fun flavor), tokens, Lifelink potential), Mobilized District (makes Citizen land, big flavor), Giant Killer (removal + Peasant + taps), Sengir Autocrat (SERFS!!), Righteous War (wild flavor, pretty solid evasion, gives your general Protection from Black AND White, could actually be a huge sleeper card), Stronghold Assassin (also an Assassin, obviously)
Powerful Women & Bad Bitches: Imposing Sovereign (also a Noble), Linden, the Steadfast Queen (also a noble), Agent of Masks (also an Advisor + "Aristocrats" staple), Diaochan, Artful Beauty (also an Advisor, could be neat with Hexproof lol), Masako the Humorless (also an Advisor, also fucking savage holy shit look at her), Orzhov Advokist (I know you've got it in the Maybelist, but it's so on-theme and it may or may not be better than Norn's Annex), Teysa Karlov (also an Advisor, great for tokens, you already have her other baller version), Etali, Primal Storm (I dunno, Elder, he's good), Zetalpa, Primal Dawn (same as before, also she's probably female so yeah), Massacre Girl (also an Assassin), Avatar of Woe, Silent Assassin (also a sexy Assassin), Thorn of the Black Rose (also an Assassin, themey, weak though, I suppose), Adriana, Captain of the Guard (wild with wide/tokens), angelic field marshall, Dark Impostor (also an Assassin), Danitha Capashen, Paragon, Stoneforge Mystic (big time with equipments, seriously some formats have called for her to be banned she's such a bad girl) Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Twilight Prophet (woah)
Tax/Bones: Kambal, Consul of Allocation (seriously amazing, most Marchesa decks run it, also an Advisor), Sheoldred, Whispering One, Urabrask the Hidden, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Pontiff of Blight (biiig beef, Marchesa controls the church), Wound Reflection (serious finisher, should really consider), Dictate of Erebos, Mogis, God of Slaughter, Fate Unraveler, Ankh of Mishra, Polluted Bonds (Ankh of Mishra on steroids, actually pretty broken card overall, probably should strongly consider it)
Multiplayer Shenanigans: Scandalmonger, Warmonger, and Wishmonger (wild times, probably too wild but they can be game finishers in weird ways); Varchild's War-Riders, Assault Suit, Goblin Assassin (also an Assassin), Embereth Skyblazer
Auras/Equipment: Kusari-Gama (super savage with Deathtouch), Helm of the Host (big theme on the flavor text, also a great card in general), Tenza, Godo's Maul, Angelic Destiny, Argentum Armor, Battle Mastery, Blackblade Reforged (a gen-equiping classic), Blessing of Leeches (Instant-speed free regeneration? This is another sleeper card, and it even has an amazing feminie art), Shadowspear, Colossus Hammer (kinda amazing with your gen), Embercleave, Whispersilk Cloak (you know Marches owns one of these), Fireshrieker (beefer)

Cool idea, I like that you have a very personal approach to deckbuilding.
One of the most game-changing rules alteration card is probably Void Winnower. It would tie in nicely with your theme, possibly making it much harder to block as well.
Lurking Predators would go a long way to cheat him and other creatures into play.
War cadence is interesting, but somehow I feel a good old Goblin War Drums may be more efficient for less maintenance.

I'm not big on singular fatties, preferring cards like Rampaging Baloths that make a sizable crowd sporting dad bod. Still, if you're having trouble with Wraths, evasion, and counters, you have plenty of options:
For Wraths: Heroic Intervention (so $, but so good!) and Wrap in Vigor (less $, but does get around anti protection tech like Shadowspear, but if your meta sees more Wraths with the "cannot regenerate" clause, not so good)
For Evasion: Gruul War Chant, Goblin War Drums, Pyreheart Wolf, Bellowing Tanglewurm, Angel's Trumpet, Fumiko the Lowblood, Avatar of Slaughter, Warmonger Hellkite, Grand Melee, and Trove of Temptation are all options.

Hey, just watched your video and got a few ideas for C'mon... Do it... You know you wanna....

Cards to cut:
- Barrier of Bones
- Garna, the Bloodflame
- Hope of Ghirapur
- Judith, the Scourge Diva
- Keldon Overseer
- Mayhem Devil
- Noxious Groodion
- Undercity Necrolisk
- Demonic Vigor
Gassing out can be a major issue with low CMC decks, you want to make sure you draw. For that reason, I don't like Obelisk of Urd or The Immortal Sun for this deck; by the time you get to 6 mana you should already be pouring out your hand. Icon of Ancestry and Herald's Horn come in play earlier and bring Goblins into your hand. Then Vanquisher's Banner renews you hand as you play them. All of these will work well only if all your creatures are Goblins. If you want to add another piece, I would look into Mind's Eye .
I had intentionally left out Rakdos Carnarium, because it is a slow land. This deck needs to be fast and furious.
I can't believe I forgot Shared Animosity! It is imperative to include it. Another card that is on-theme and underestimated is Goblin War Drums , equivalent to Angrath. Also since you want to attack with many small creatures, I am sure you would love Dolmen Gate .
Hope you are not overwhelmed with all these suggestions!
I don't have a Goblin deck, but here is a link to my Vampires, maybe it an give you ideas of a tribal synergy.
