On second thought you have to exile Stolen Identity to use cipher so Archaeomancer wouldn't be able to target it. But I read the article CharonSquared posted and the ability cipher gives to the creature is a triggered ability so you could copy it. Would be cool to keep recycling some kind of Lava Axe if you had a way to make mana every attack phase like with Savage Ventmaw

I'm still not a fan of Lava Axe however, as you have plenty of larger burn spells. Pyroclasm, Earthquake and/or Breaking Point could help so you can focus your burn on the player. For single target creature removal,Spitting Earth or Seismic Strike work well as they scale over time.
Keep in mind that Reverberate also copies over the X from Earthquake, so in late game, if you have more health than the other player/s you can just nuke the whole board.

In both cases, you're targeting a player, that's all.

I like the flavor. Some suggestions:
Your mana-curve is kinda spikey - try fewer 1- and 3- mana spells, and add some 2's and 4's.
Tormented Hero has heroic, but to get value you need spells to target him - enchantment pumps, or instants.

The demigods are nice, but they do not belong in this particular deck. They are sharing the spot for worst card with all of the sorceries. However, lets assume we want them for some reason. We actually want the rest of the deck to be aggressive. I will try to keep the costs as low as possible.
21 lands - anything can go here.
4 Faithless Looting - key spell, works with everything in the deck.
4 Stinkweed Imp - dredging is a fine way to get stuff in the grave.
3 Darkblast - mostly for dredge.
4 Oona's Prowler - evasive attacker and discard outlet.
4 Rotting Rats - works very well with dredge.
3 Undertaker - get back a Demigod to cast it.
4 Grave Scrabbler - gets back demigod or anything else, especially well with discard.
4 Tormenting Voice - try to replace every draw with a dredge.
3 Lightning Bolt - some removal is cool.
1 Avatar of Discord - effect and creature are very powerful.

The card itself is great in a Goblin deck - Let's say you control 5 Goblin tokens, and have Brightstone Ritual and a Lava Axe in your Hand, and control only 1 Mountain. You can only produce with your Mountain, which is short of casting Lava Axe, but enough to cast Brightstone Ritual.
So, you cast the Ritual, and when it resolves, it looks at the number of Goblins you control and sees 5, therefore, it will add to your mana pool. That is enough to cast Lava Axe.
As a bonus effect, the Ritual also counts Goblins your opponents control.
