here are some cards to consider if you'd rather go for a mix of goblin, token and others creatures

Brass Squire is a cheap way to get past equipment costs.

Kari Zev, Skyship Raider. You have to put the card’s full name and double brackets in order to link it:
[[Kari Zev, Skyship Raider]]
One option is prison/Stax. Aggro and burn count on having lots of creatures/spells very quickly. Slow them down and they tend to fall off in the later game.

Hey there! I'm here to try and help your deck grow and develop a strategy, because at the moment your deck looks like a Singleton Creature-Only deck, no offence intended.
First off, Angrath is a terrific include, try and run 2 more. What I think you should develop here is a light control build that forces players to Discard while you swing in to bring the win in. You need some more consistency, so try and run 4-3 of each copy I suggest. First off, Playset of Blightning. It'll keep your opponents down and deal some damage. Inquisition of Kozilek is good, but a tad pricey, so save up for a playset too. Cryptborn Horror looks like it could really be the star of the show here. Essentially your strategy would be to deal tons of damage in a single turn while your opponents doesn't have anything to respond with (Due to you forcing them to discard), and then play Cryptborn Horror and have a huge threat your opponent can't deal with. To make Cryptborn work, you'll want to run 4 Lightning Bolts, and some creatures that hit in for damage very quickly, something maybe like Reckless Bushwhacker. Duress could be good too if you can't afford Thoughtseize. Remember, the information that these cards give you by letting you see your opponent's hand is very important, because you can anticipate what they'll do. Run more of Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, she's great in this. Okay, so you'll want more removal than just Lightning Bolt, so putting in a playset of Fatal Push will be a good idea. Other than that, running Dragonskull Summit and Graven Cairns will mean you won't have troubles with the wrong color of mana.

Wee Dragonauts? +2/+0 is really good. Also, Sage of Epityr has pseudo Ponder, which can be useful. Also, why is Kari Zev, Skyship Raider in here? She’s not a wizard, and doesn’t seem to have that much synergy here. Oh, and finally, Swiftwater Cliffs is strictly better than Izzet Guildgate. Guildgates are just bad.

Imminent Doom is a weird card to play around with. In an EDH deck you'd definitely get value out of it. Here... probably not so much.
Wizard's Lightning would be more consistent damage. Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, maybe. Fanatical Firebrand, Zurgo Bellstriker, Thunderous Wrath, Searing Spear, Incinerate, Flame Javelin, Collateral Damage are all fun cheapish burn spells and doods. Reverberate+Insult would just be brutal but you'd need the mana to pull it off.
I like what you're trying, I'd just probably take out the imminents.

nrwinning you've got some good synergies going on, but part of me feels like you should splash some BLACK for Mardu Control. It would give you access to more removal spells like Cast Down, Fatal Push and Vraska's Contempt. Fatal Push works really well with Kari Zev, Skyship Raider and Tilonalli's Summoner(if you don't have Ascend - The City's Blessing). Sheltering Light and Queen's Commission really doesn't do anything for you. I also concur with chuckaw1977 in using Magma Spray over Shock.

Upon thinking about it, ignore my comment about Doomfall.
Also Id say cut the Heart of Kiran or put it in the sideboard. You are going to want more creatures.
Heart of Kiran would just slow it down, its nice for its utilitarian approach, but unless you want to crew your heavy hitters (Rekindling Phoenix, Scrapheap Scrounger, Glorybringer, Goblin Chainwhirler, Hazoret the Fervent...) or to use a loyalty counter from Chandra, Torch of Defiance. but in general you might want something a bit faster. id suggest the Aethersphere Harvester if you had more 1/1's, however just dropping both kiran for a Bomat Courier and a Unlicensed Disintegration might help you out, as you will have a better chance at those 1 drops in your first hand AND more chances for removal since you have a playset of unlicensed and a full playset of bomat. you would want that card advantage and want to beable to use unlicensed disintegration with its trigger for the extra 3 damage. If ya mainboard a Angrath and side one in the side board, id keep the Kirans, as THEN it would be more viable, and even more so in game 2 or 3.
also Arguel's Blood Fast might not be a good idea for the sideboard, it is a bit costly for aggro, yeah the card advantage might be nice but by the time you are down to 5 life, you are going to need more and more creatures to bring back scrapheap scrounger. Arguel's is best with decks that use recursion such as mono black ones or specifically zombies, Embalm or Eternalize.
Lastly, Kari Zev, Skyship Raider is a bit too slow, id opt for Khenra, atleast in early game his ability will allow you to get in additional damage, AND hes great for late game, even when discarded by Hazorets mana ability (which is a good idea in my opinion to get your hand down to one or less AND to get the 4/4 with the power 4 cant block ability the next turn).
This is what I am running for a Rakados build. its basically what you are doing but a little more consistent
