I feel like this deck is trying to be mid-rangey, which is totally fine, but Foundry Street Denizen doesn't exactly fit into mid-range goblins. The same could almost be said for Goblin Piledriver.

Frenzied Goblin, and Intimidator Initiate would increase the chance that your Goblins will survive an attack.

Goblin Bushwhacker, Legion Loyalist, Goblin Wardriver, Mogg War Marshal, and Warren Instigator would all help ramp up your damage.

Mardu Scout gives you a repeated creature EOTB trigger. Can be quite valuable with a Soul Warden in play.

I'd highly suggest adding Impact Tremors, to give you more EOTB utility with your mass of tokens. Purphoros, God of the Forge is another option for that affect.

Also, this is not a deck where it's possible to run 12 lands. You'll want to run 18 at a minimum if you're playing a 4 cost spell. Every hand won't have Skirk Prospector, and Skirk Prospector is only good if you've got enough mana to play your token generators.

Deck looks real fun, but it needs to decide between aggro and mid-range. You definitely need to up the land count, as Skirk Prospector doesn't cut it as a land replacement.

I've playtested your deck a few times to see how it would perform. Biggest problem is that it contains so much expensive to cast stuff, the chance to get some traction in a game's early phase is slim.

In order to improve on that, I'd really add some more land (5-6) to your deck, some more ramp options like Burnished Hart and/or Fire Diamond as well as some cheap options to utilize Purphoros' damaging ability early like Mardu Scout, Young Pyromancer, Dragon Fodder, Krenko's Command and Hordeling Outburst.

In order to make room for all of this, I'd advise you to remove a lot of cards that take a butt-load of mana to cost and aren't that valuable to your strategy anyway like all of the Dragons, Darksteel Colossus, Hazoret the Fervent and Kozilek, Butcher of Truth.

Here's the link to my Purphy deck; hope it helps!

For a goblin with a neat effect have you tried Mardu Scout?

Ive got him in my deck Seeing Red and hes nice for hit and get out.

Also you should check out scryfall.

Have you considered running Goblin Grenade? I would take out the Mardu Scouts and one Mountain for 4x Goblin Grenades. Its R for a creature sac and five damage to target creature or player

Have you considered Mogg Flunkies, Goblin Wardriver, Legion Loyalist, or (maybe) Mardu Scout? Maybe you also can throw in a few Stoneforge Masterworks to serve as a mini-Coat of Arms.

I'm a big fan of Impact Tremors, but it doesn't seem like much takes advantage of this. perhaps you add white for flicker effects like Restoration Angel or Cloudshift. Alternatively, you could use the mechanic the card was intended to be used for. Mardu Scout , and Goblin Heelcutter are good for this purpose, and are also goblins, which is a bonus. Also, like Skoodly says, you wouldn't have to sacrifice much for this to be modern, or even pauper if you're feeling saucy. Just watch out, Seething Song is banned in modern.

Nice deck! Wouldn't Mardu Scout be strictly better than Viashino Sandscout?
