(3), Sacrifice Herbal Poultice: Regenerate target creature.
Herbal Poultice Discussion

I like this ping ping thing you have here.
I agree with Traumitz that Great Furnace and Vault of Whispers would be great additions to this deck. With those additions, you could consider replacing some Renegade Map and Traveler's Amulet with Expedition Map in order to grab the artifact lands.
Given that your mana curve is so low, I wonder if you need so much land fetching. Consider more draw. I like Costly Plunder , maybe even more than I like Sign in Blood here. If your lands were artifacts and you had too many, you could sacrifice them to Costly Plunder for value$$.
For three mana you could include protection in the form of Herbal Poultice . It fits the theme, protects and triggers but the mana cost is steep.
Ornithopter seems out of place in this deck unless you NEED a zero mana creature or a powerless flying blocker. If you can push it to one mana you could get a lot more value out of Myr Servitor and sac outlets such is Costly Plunder or ¿ Ashnod's Altar ?
You really have me geeking on this deck...

werasus: that's a good looking deck; if you're using the budget version, it's already pretty cheap, especially since Bomat Courier went down after rotation. You could try swapping Herbal Poultice for Welding Jar, Snapsail Glider for Etched Champion, and something like Foundry of the Consuls for Blinkmoth Nexus. Looks like the only other thing over a dollar at TCGplayer is Inventors' Fair; I can't think of a good replacement for that, but you might be able to just leave it out.

I loved your red and blue deck, I made my own based on yours with very few changes. I think for this deck you should consider Horseshoe Crab because it already combos well with Hermetic Study and Psionic Gift even though the combo isn't infinite, it gives you a little bit more options. But I don't know what you would replace! Herbal Poultice is awesome, but I think Lotus Petal is better than Bone Saw but it raises the price, so I guess not if you don't already have some around. Love your decks!

Thanks for the suggestions! I like Welding Jar and Herbal Poultice to protect the combo pieces. A lot of what you're suggesting is a little slow though. Fabricate and Zephyr Scribe are great at finding combo pieces, but then you have to wait a turn in order to actually combo off. That's the whole reason Springleaf Drum is in the deck--it speeds us up.
Adding red is super cool, i need to ry it sometime. My only concern is the manabase for izzet can get costly and this deck was supposed to be budget. Oh well... the life of a magic player is expensive.

I like this combo mainly because of the flexibility in the cards you can combo off with. One 0 mana artifact (Welding Jar probably being the best, Herbal Poultice, or the creatures), one creature that untaps when the artifact ETBs (there are 5 different creatures that do this: Battered Golem, Nettle Drone, Zephyr Scribe if you use a non-creature artifact, Traxos, Scourge of Kroog which is also a wincon on its own, and Mirran Spy), one card that has an ability that triggers whenever a permanent, artifact or creature if you use them enters the battlefield (Molten Nursery, Altar of the Brood, Impact Tremors, or Nettle Drone does it as well), and Retraction Helix or Banishing Knack.
I think that adding red gives you some good options like Nettle Drone and Molten Nursery. I also think that you should run on average 6 of each of the combo pieces. Welding Jar and Herbal Poultice I think are better than Ornithopter and Memnite as they protect the combo. This is probably better than the nut draw of getting the combo out on turn 3.

I feel like Kuldotha Rebirth needs a little more active support to be effective- just ornithopter and it are rarely in your hand at the same time.
Fortunately, the hyper efficient and cheap Shrapnel Blast can act as (functionally) extra grenades, and cards like Darksteel Citadel, Herbal Poultice, Memnite, Panic Spellbomb and sideboard Tormod's Crypt are available.
Personally, I like to sit a lot lower on the mana curve, running Mogg War Marshal, and sometimes run Dragon Fodder/Krenko's Command over empty the warrens (as that fits better in Skirk Prospector combo), then rely on the haste-enabling lords and Reckless Bushwhacker/Goblin Bushwhacker.
Have fun brewing, goblins can be a lot of fun!
