The only problem with the Rabid Bite is that it's at sorcery speed. I feel that Pounce at instant speed is a bit better. Maybe replacing Savage Stomp or Prey Upon might work better.

if you switch Pounce for Rabid Bite its the same mana coast but without any damage to your own creature

I'd recommend Pit Fight or Pounce over Prey Upon. It's one more mana, but the instant speed makes a huuuuuuge difference.

Looking at it, you may want to add in a little more support for blue. It would not hurt to power the blue a little more with cards like Swiftwater Cliffs, Highland Lake or Izzet Boilerworks. It would certainly open up more options for defending an enchantment from being Cancelled or Negated when running against blue as you could add in your own counters, and it can also save your strategy from being boardwiped by cards like Merciless Eviction and others. In addition to adding protection to your enchantment that is crucial to your strategy, it can open up new avenues of hurt in the form of cards that bounce attackers that can be used in to take out your Krenko, Mob Boss by using Prey Upon, Rabid Bite or Pounce. The overall concept is an awesome strategy and I'll probably build myself a deck to spam infinte goblins, but in going mono red and relying on two evolving wilds and a good draw to kick off your combo, you're leaving yourself open on a lot of fronts and for a lot of things to go wrong.

Oh nevermind sorry, I just saw that you already have the stomp in there. I would still recommend replacing Pounce though

Great deck! As a fellow Gishath-user, i respecthow you went all in on the dinos. I haven't looked too far into this list yet, but at first glance, Savage Stomp is a great replacement for Pounce, or you could even replace it with Chaos Warp

After posting, I wanted to clarify: The above is only for actual combat (i.e. during your combat phase with attacking/blocking).

If you are still talking about cards with Fight (i.e. Pounce), the above is irrelevant. First/Double strike only apply to the combat damage step, and thus have no baring on Fight. Each would merely deal damage to one another--the 1/2 will survive, the 1/1 will die.
