ticked-off-squirrel: Thanks for commenting!
Caged Sun - The deck is getting to the point where I don't really have a problem with mana, but I have a really bad problem with having enough cards in hand to actually spend mana on. I may end up adding one of these in the future depending on how the deck settles out, but I'm not sure which yet out of Caged Sun/Gauntlet of Power/Gauntlet of Might.
Metallic Mimic - I run this in all my other tribal decks, but I'm not sure it fits as well in here. Raid Bombardment does a lot of work in this deck, to the point that if I have both of my Anthem Goblins out I will sac one so that Raid Bombardment can still proc on the tokens. Since the tokens tend to get sacrificed or blow up, their actual power doesn't become that significant. In much the same tone Shared Animosity is only still in because it has virtually no drawback, and I can just set it down and ignore it.
Quest for the Goblin Lord - Same as above.
Goblin Caves - Now this is a card that I haven't thought about in a long time. This could really help all the Goblins soak up removal. The only drawback I can think of is I can't bounce around a Skullclamp, but if it was really important I could just sac the land the enchantment is on. Going to sideboard this because I really want to test it out.
Squee, Goblin Nabob - I like Squee a lot, but the only thing he really benefits me with in this deck is the discard that is tied to Tormenting Voice and Faithless Looting. I am considering putting Daretti, Scrap Savant back in, in which case it may be starting to be worth the include, but I can't see myself ever actually casting him, as 3 mana for something to sac is just too high. That means I would just hold Squee in my hand until a discard prompt came up.
KamenRiderVys: I actually ran Mana Echoes in the deck for a long time, and on average it would net me 100+ mana in any given phase. The problem was that I never actually had anything to spend it on, and it would just fizzle at the end of the phase. I don't have anything with flash, I have very, very few instants, and even when I was making 250 colorless mana on my own turn during my first main phase, I had like 3 cards in hand that had a total CMC of like 5. I eventually took it out a few iterations ago, and haven't really missed it. I moved it over to my Zada deck, that has a lot more opportunities to actually use it.
I really love Repercussion. I've knocked several people out on a turn where I would cast it and wait to see if it would be countered, and then if it wasn't I would immediately follow it up with a Blasphemous Act (with Boseiju if I need). Sac my own creatures in response and I take no damage but the rest of the table blows up. I used to use it as a finisher, but have started putting it down earlier and earlier because of all the damage sources that will whittle my opponents down, and I can choose whether I care about taking the damage or not. At worst it speeds up a game I would probably lose anyway, at best I win on that turn. People are already afraid to block tokens when Ib is out, now they let through 20 because they don't want to take 80. Works me me, haha.

Is that an accurate land base? If you can do some upgrades there it will make the deck play way cleaner.
Chain Reaction would be way better as a reliable wrath. If you find yourself with nothing on board staring down 1-2 massive thing it won't do the job. Depending on your meta Hallowed Burial, End Hostilities, or my personal favorite Fumigate, might prove more effective.
How effective do you find Goblin Bombardment? I'm thinking I cut it from my Marath list and would appreciate any thoughts.

I'd also like to emphasize the already suggested Earthcraft. Being able to tap a creature for mana the turn it comes in is amazing benefit. I run both a Marath, Will of the Combo and a Ghave, Guru of Combos deck, so I can attest to its usefulness, as well as its superiority to Cryptolith Rite. (Though I would likely say run both)
Also, Mana Echoes generates an obscene amount of colorless mana. If that's something you think you can use or not is up to you.

I feel like Mana Echoes is a must-include in this, since it can snowball out of control with Marath's elementals. If you also have Food Chain out, then you can just kill the table, but that's a bit more combo-y than most folks like. Even without Food Chain I think Echoes is absolutely necessary.

Long time Krenko player here. The artifacts you have aren't great.
Look into Sol Ring obviously, Thousand-Year Elixir to use Krenko multiple times a turn, Thornbite Staff, and Umbral Mantle more on these two later, use Swiftfoot Boots to protect Krenko. Additionally you'll want some mana, so Ashnod's Altar is a great card here.
Goblinwise, Skirk Prospector and Goblin Chirurgeon are key. If budget isn't too much of a problem you'll want Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and (the not as expensive) Lightning Crafter. Grenzo, Havoc Raiser can be used as an alternate wincon and way to take out problematic creatures or players in multiplayer games. Purphoros, God of the Forge, while not a Goblin is too good not to have in the deck.
Enchantments. Believe me when I say this: Goblinslide is trash. It simply doesn't cut it. Look into the following: Boggart Shenanigans, Goblin Bombardment, Goblin Warrens, Impact Tremors, Mana Echoes, and Quest for the Goblin Lord.
Check out my deck for ideas. I don't know if it is too competitive for you: Krenko and Kiki-Jiki's Goblin Horde

A Mana Echoes can generate an outrageous amount of mana. +1 from me.

Delta-117, I enjoyed reading your experience with the game. I started magic back in 2002 during the Onslaught block. I played off and on between high school, college and now as an adult with a professional job. I consider myself a "serious-casual" - I don't participate in drafts/game day/FNM/tournaments often, but I do frequent my lgs from time to time. Additionally, I have one really high end deck in my format of choice. I also have a few other decks for less serious play - casual EDH or casual. As the years go on, i'll just maintain and update this deck while picking up a few new cards here and there, or maybe a Commander deck that looks interesting.
As for the trading of cards that turn out to be more valuable down the road...hindsight is 20/20. I've traded away more Fetchlands than I could count...back in onslaught I remember getting annoyed because all I would seem to open were Polluted Deltas...I traded away a foil one. So yeah, I feel your pain. Every time I go to this page I always cringe a little bit looking at TCGPlayer's pricetag on this deck, I feel so silly spending so much money on just...cardboard. Best believe I didn't spend $3K...more like...$1,500-$1,700. I like to think of this deck as a reminder for me to keep my spending under control.
Sliver Queen, my favorite sliver unfortunately will never have a new printing due to her being on the reserved list. So when new slivers are printed demand for her will likely rise...so if you do plan on getting the legendary Slivers, i'd go for her first. But be weary, decks that have her have combos built around her, so you will have to make room for the other cards that compliment her directly i.e. Mana Echoes, Basal Sliver, and Training Grounds just to name a few. If you want to focus on strictly aggro, then she may not contribute as much. I'd say Sliver Legion would be your best choice. If we do see Sliver Queen in the future, then I think she'd have to be an all new planeswalker...which would be AMAZING. If she also had a built in tutor ability, then she'd obviously be the new general of this deck...but one can dream.
It's always a pleasure talking magic with you Delta-117, please keep me posted with whatever stuff you find. Additionally, i'm working on a page for Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder, but progress is slow because i'm lazy. But I promise you once it debuts, it'll be a really awesome deck page...and a good casual deck as well.
