Is this an MTGO deck? If not, I'd recommend some Goblin War Strikes and Goblin Grenades to hit them for unexpected damage.

@louisjrt Thanks. I really appreciate your suggestions. I have Goblin War Strike and Boggart Shenanigans in the deck already so they are certainly useful to me. Bloodmark Mentor was actually cut pretty recently, but I still think it's a decent option. Stingscourger is also pretty good in my opinion. Mogg Maniac and Goblin Taskmaster look like they could be fun to build around, in fact I'd never seen the latter before. Jeering Instigator is interesting, but you'd probably be better served using a cheaper option mana-wise like Kari Zev's Expertise. Final Fortune and Relentless Assault are certainly playable as well if you are so inclined, Aggravated Assault is another option if you favour repeatability.

This isn't a bad start. I would begin with adding Purphoros, God of the Forge He can combo really well with Krenko, Mob Boss and with enough goblins on the field could be a one turn win. I would also suggest a lot more artifacts/lands to ramp for a short list: Sol Ring, Worn Powerstone, Fire Diamond, Everflowing Chalice, Darksteel Ingot, and maybe a Temple of the False God. As for some other potential spells, you cant go wrong with Goblin Grenade and Goblin War Strike might be useful too. Perhaps a Brightstone Ritual as well. You could also possibly run a Fervor or Browbeat for some utility. These are just some suggestions. Don't feel the need to run them all if you don't like them. Hope this helps! also a +1 for ya!

Guess if you're playing his on MTGO. In paper, Goblin Grenade is legal. Regardless, Reckless Abandon is a suitable substitute in MTGO and is still most of the time better than Goblin War Strike.

I'd recommend Goblin Grenade over Goblin War Strike. This deck is constantly losing creatures due to swinging into bigger creatures. You won't often have enough goblins in play to do more than 5 damage, plus you lose the option to take out big creatures. I'd fit 4x Goblin Grenades in there if I could, it's really the main reason to play goblins in any format where it's legal.

My pauper goblins deck is similar to yours, though I've fleshed out the creatures a bit and the 4x Goblin Grenades are absolutely invaluable. Here's my list: Pauper Goblins

You also have 61 cards in here. Tarfire probably isn't necessary.

Thanks, HurricaneZach. My original version of this deck did have Mogg Fanatic in it, but I decided to replace it with the Fanatical Firebrand since it was basically the same thing but with haste, which I feel outweighs the fact that you have to tap it to sac it. I also just replaced the Raging Goblin with Goblin Cohort which was also in the original version of the deck, but will really benefit from the new haste creatures so it has gone back in. Also swapped Fireblast with Goblin War Strike to avoid the land sac. It had been a while since I did any editing on this one - enjoy!

You want speed? I suggest Skirk Prospector and Mogg War Marshal.. I also Agree with the Fireblast. It's one of the most must have red spells. Also a Goblin War Strike would also work on this deck

lol, of course, on that day we'll all switch to Goblin War Strike... and then it will get banned so... live it up until then, right? =D

seriously though, good idea. =) Consider my ideas "sideboarding suggestions" then.
