Obelisk of Urd Discussion

Fun deck! I too have a Goblin deck, so I know how fun they are to play! I have some tips regarding your cards if you're interested. You seem to have 62 cards in the deck, it's never a good idea to have more than 60 card - consistency is king! In general you want a curve that is as low as possible, since you need to keep a pressure all the time. If you don't win turn 4 or 5, you will probably loose the game.
The lands look good, what you need is red mana and you've got it. A tapped land can be dangerous since you need to keep a pressure! I'm trying to run Contested War Zone in my goblin deck, it's risky since it only produce colorless mana, but it's +1/0 ability can be game winning.
Card you can consider adding, price tag in (parenthesis):
Goblin Guide - (Expensive), but really good!
Foundry Street Denizen - Can get really big really quick, (cheap).
Legion Loyalist - Devastating against token heavy decks, first strike can be really good if your goblins are buffed. (Kind of expensive).
Goblin Piledriver - Get really big, game winner with Legion Loyalist's trample, (average price), well worth the cost!
Goblin Rabblemaster - Creates you a massive goblin army, constant pressure, one of these can totally dominate the battlefield, two of them wins you the game. Recently reprinted, so it's (cheap) for what it does. Great if Quest for the Goblin Lord.
Lightning Bolt - 4x.
Goblin Bushwhacker - One of the best one/two drops for goblins, (cheap).
Warren Instigator - Haven't tried myself but he can be really powerful. (Average).
Mogg War Marshal - I like it more than cards like Krenko's Command, since it gives you a bit more resistance against sweepers. It's also a great gobling to sacrifice for Goblin Grenade.
Additional card to consider, mainly for sideboard:
Cards I'd cut:
Obelisk of Urd - In my experience, Obelisk of Urd is rarely a good card aggro or modern in general. Too expensive, or forces you to not attack a turn if you want it early.
Arms Dealer - Too slow, isn't a threat in it's own.
Goblin Kaboomist - Too unreliable.
Frenzied Goblin - There are better 1-drops.
Fury Charm - Not really a good card.
Hope you appreciate the tips and make sure to ask if you have any questions!

My friend has a commander deck that makes a bunch of 1/1 tokens. He also runs Obelisk of Urd, which gives them all +2/+2. I have Virulent Plague, giving those same tokens -2/-2. I know his preexisting tokens will survive, but when another token enters the battlefield, will it die first or get buffed first?

maybe splash red for Kird Ape and Simian Spirit Guide, this also opens you up to Lightning Bolt which is always great. Also Giant Growth is great when a monkey finds its way through your enemies defense. Next Obelisk of Urd and Coat of Arms are great finishers. Finally Adaptive Automaton and Metallic Mimic are must haves for any strange tribal deck.
PS. Eldrazi Monument for indestructible flying monkeys

Urza's Incubator is not a budget card, but if you can afford it it's pretty great
Many of your creatures are of similar size, so Wild Pair could be really funny

I don't see why Mindcrank and a few other cards are in there if you aren't planning on milling people down, from your description it seems like thats not what you're going for, if you are, Traumatize. But I'd recommend sticking with lifedrain and good old fashion beating people over the head with lots of zombies. Phenax, God of Deception is cool, but don't try to do that and lifedrain zombies.
Look at Dralnu, Lich Lord because its amazing, same goes for Semblance Anvil, Possessed Skaab, Call to the Kindred, Ever After and Lim-Dul's Vault is broken. Obelisk of Urd is a tribal deck's best friend.
There are better wipes for this deck than Coastal Breach and you are a bit low on removal. Malicious Affliction and Dash Hopes are very good and fun. Get rid of Imprisoned in the Moon. Another thing you can do for removal is use Fleshbag Marauder, have it sac itself, then cast it from the graveyard. Stronghold Assassin too. Cauldron of Souls Can help you dodge board wipes and is a cool card to have. Perplex is fun too. And Mimic Vat
Arcane Adaptation is neat but there are much better cards that you can use. Black Market isn't as good as it seems because your mana empties before you can use it for anything good most of the time. Empty the Pits is very expensive, but if you can make it work, do it.
Your nonbasic lands are also really slow and you may need more lands in general, 36ish is about where you want to be. Look at Choked Estuary and Command Tower or cards that lower costs like Jet Medallion.
I know I've suggested to add a lot more cards than I suggested to take out, and I've never really even tried to give deck advice before, but I hope I at least gave you some ideas.

Ok got a couple of suggestions for you. Try adding Akroma's Memorial, Mind's Eye, Coat of Arms, Obelisk of Urd, Extraplanar Lens(if you can afford it of course), Martial Coup and Mirran Crusader are just a few I can think of lol.

First I recommend taking out: Havengul Runebinder, Cemetery Recruitment, Undead Alchemist, Nantuko Husk, Geralf's Masterpiece, Geralf's Mindcrusher, Ashes of the Fallen, Perpetual Timepiece, Secrets of the Dead, Ancient Excavation, Murder, Compelling Deterrence, Liliana's Mastery, Obelisk of Urd, Graf Harvest, and Zombie Infestation, Ghoulcaller's Chant,
Cards that you should put in: Gravecrawler, Gravespawn Sovereign, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Grave Pact, Unholy Grotto, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Living Death, Cryptbreaker, Death Baron, Phyrexian Reclamation, High Market, Corpse Harvester, Balthor the Defiled, Reassembling Skeleton, Skullclamp, Grave Defiler, Graveborn Muse, Zombie Apocalypse, Crypt of Agadeem, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Reliquary Tower, Bojuka Bog, Diabolic Intent, Patriarch's Bidding, and Demonic Tutor.
If you are really trying to stay Timmy with the deck, then I won't recommend Phyrexian Altar because it goes infinite with Gravecrawler and any kind of death/ETB trigger, but then again, it does it with Rooftop Storm and a sac outlet too.
Other cards that can be really good in zombies include: Sheoldred, Whispering One, Corpse Connoisseur, Zombie Trailblazer, Twilight's Call, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Demonic Collusion, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Scourge of Nel Toth, River Kelpie, Phyrexian Arena, Attrition, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Burnished Hart, Disciple of Bolas, Harvester of Souls, Damnation, Rune-Scarred Demon, Phenax, God of Deception, Beacon of Unrest, Corpse Augur, Palace Siege, Infernal Caretaker, Contamination, Plague Belcher, Vengeful Dead, Dread Wanderer, Boneknitter, Grimoire of the Dead, Pontiff of Blight, Custodi Lich
