Have you tried Shivan Harvest. It's a pet card of mine in red token decks. Trading a 1/1 for an opponent's land is a great way to set people behind.
Goblin Lackey seems like an obvious missed card.
You should replace Zealous Conscripts with Lightning Crafter for the combo with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. In a low tutor deck like this you almost never get off 2-card combos like Kiki/Zealous. Lightning Crafter works just as well and is tutorable by all your goblin tutors. Also it can pick off creatures for you.
Speaking of goblin tutors, Moggcatcher is worth considering, but might be a little slow here.
What the hell is Mycosynth Lattice in here for?
Mountainwalk isn't really that relevant, so Goblin King is really just a 3-drop that gives your creatures +1/+1. If there are any goblins you could cut, he's first in line.

Hey Darrell this is Austin. I haven't really gone through what should replace what but just a list of what to take out and to add in. The cards that are going on the add list should help speed the deck up and cards that should be taken out are either to slow or just not as good as other cards that are on the add list. Now it's your deck so you do what you want, but these cards should help out a lot. Alright here we go.

Hello and welcome back to the game :)
I do like where you are going with this deck idea but there are a lot of improvements to be made. Before I give any niche card suggestions, I'd like you to tell us in what environment will you be playing with the deck (e.g. with friends at home, at your LGS, 1v1, multiplayer e.t.c.) as well as set a budget per card (e.g. no more than $5 or $10 per card) and in general, what do you want the deck to do? (overwhelm people with mogs? sacrificial shenanigans? both? more than these?). There's a plethora of very strong card that could fit your colours and thematic, but instead of putting random cards here, i'd prefer giving you suggestions that fit what you want to do. Nevertheless, just to give you some ideas: Attrition, Death Pits of Rath, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Descent of the Dragons, Dictate of Erebos and many others.
In addition to those I'd consider running Moggcatcher and Skirk Fire Marshal in any goblin deck. The first one, albeit not a goblin, can really help you pull out your most needed creature at every given time. Boggart Shenanigans can be a potentially strong card. The same can be said for Goblin Matron.

I main Purphoros so I can offer a little sage advice.
TBH you can safely cut most of the pain enchantments like Burning Earth, Spellshock et al. This is because Purph himself IS a house of pain which is why the Narset player most likely targeted you. Instead focus on creatures that produce tokens (i.e. Beetleback Chief, Krenko, Mob Boss, Siege-Gang Commander, Pia and Kiran Nalaar ect.) and/or Instants/Sorceries that likewise focus on tokens (i.e. Hordeling Outburst, Krenko's Command, Dragon Fodder, Kuldotha Rebirth ect.). The great thing with Purph is that he doesn't care about what kinds or tokens you make but I think you'd get the most mileage with goblins simply due to their relative ease of production and synergy with others like Skirk Prospector, Goblin Recruiter, Moggcatcher, ect.
You can also go combo if you'd like utilizing Dualcaster Mage and either Heat Shimmer/Twinflame to create infinite Dualcaster Mages and damage via Purph. Norin the Wary is just brutal with Genesis Chamber. Grinning Ignus is an all star here too.

A number of excellent lords and tribal options that you could consider including:
Also, Descendants' Path could be a really good if you up the creature count.

I almost prefer the Pyromancer over the Shared Animosity, for my deck at any rate. I mean, I definitely run both, but I get more use out of the Pyromancer. It can get Moggcatchered, Goblin Matroned, and Goblin Recruitered, and it can get sacrificed. Animosity can't.
Even when I can't sacrifice the Pyromancer, I usually just let all my goblins die. Stalking Vengeance is silly. Again, though, my version of the deck is much more suicide-y; I'm in it strictly for catastrophic explosions and chuckles, not to have a board presence or win games or anything. I agree with you that the Pyromancer doesn't really have a place in a good deck.

Myr Battlesphere was a great card, but a fellow commenter got me to thinking to change him with Knollspine Dragon for more draw power. Since the deck already has about 25% cards making tokens, it wouldn't hurt to think about the problem which is draw power. It's still a great card, though.
Hmm, I'm not too interested in infinite combos in this deck, but I might have to put that in the "infinite combo section". Thanks for the ideas!

I built a very similar list a month or so back and here is some of my favorite cards for the deck.
Mana Echoes <-- absolutely stupid amounts of mana can come off of this card
Skirk Prospector more mana, Moggcatcher goblin tutor, Myr Battlesphere 10 damage please, Flameshadow Conjuring copy any of your token producing creatures for one red.........
