I LOVE IT! Absolutely love it! The only changes I would suggest are the following:

Since you're in 5-colors, it might be wise to run Exotic Orchard (often you get 4 or 5 colors on this land), Cascading Cataracts (for General Tazri's ability) and Battlefield Forge. // Also, Arcane Sanctum, Crumbling Necropolis, Savage Lands, Seaside Citadel and Murmuring Bosk (fetchable Forest) should replace the non-gate taplands: Bloodfell Caves, Dismal Backwater, Swiftwater Cliffs, Tranquil Cove and Wind-Scarred Crag. // You don't need to dedicate 10 guildgates to Circuitous Route, you just need 5 or 6 to have wide variety of options to fetch. Since this deck is heavy on green and white, you can take out the guildgates that don't generate green or white (Dimir Guildgate, Rakdos Guildgate, Izzet Guildgate) for Vivid Meadow, Vivid Grove and Vivid Crag, because these can give you all 5 colors. // It is better not to run spells that cost double mana of a splash color, like Diabolic Tutor (it might be hard to cast it when you want it).

I actually made a deck pretty similar to this one. Her it is if you want to check it out: Mogis the hate god

what I found out through play testing is that creatures more or less suck for group slug strategies. There are plenty of really good creatures that fit this deck such as Zo-Zu the Punisher however I've found that if you relly too much on your creatures for incremental damage they are too susceptible to removal and board wipes.

In your case I believe you can safely get rid of any creature that produces mana. In most edh deck you only need about 10ish mana rocks and right now you have 11 as regular artifacts so I think your ramp will be fine.

Besides ramping creatures I believe that cutting these cards would also be advantageous:

With all those cards cut I'd then start putting in more group slug type enchantments. The reason I like these enchantments more is because unlike creatures, most board wipes dont hit them and most people dont have a ton of enchantment removal. There are tons of these group slug type cards so I'm not going to say which ones would be best for your deck because most of them would work. But I like these ones:

I would also just reconsider these cards, I haven't personally played them so I can't be certain of how strong they are, but they dont seem to quite fit the deck.

  • Cruel Reality It seems tempting but it only targets one opponent and is super expensive. I don't believe its worth its cost
  • Browbeat I would personally rather have guaranteed card draw, try Ancient Craving instead
  • Mana Geyser lots of mana, but what are you spending it on? if you had more X costing spells then it may be worth it but for now think of how bad of a top deck this would be with no cards in hand.

And of course I would strongly recommend running some dual lands to help smooth out your mana consistency. Here are some of the really budget ones:

You have a strong core here once again but I just feel that some of your card slots could be better spent. Hope all this helps

Goblin Grenade is not pauper legal (thank goodness).

As for the rest of the deck; loving it, but you definitely want some dual lands. Bloodfell Caves, Rakdos Guildgate, etc. Alternatively, Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, or Ash Barrens.

Cheers!

If you are missing black mana as you play i'd remove a few mountains for Rakdos Signet, Myriad Landscape, Rakdos Guildgate and a couple other cheap black/red lands. Throw in a Bojuka Bog just because there are SO many graveyard decks lately.

Battle Squadron = big, flying goblins

Breath of Fury is amazing if you get multiple taps out of Krenko or go infinite with Kiki-Jiki

I swapped in Oblivion Sower and Rakdos Keyrune for Sire Of Insanity and Grixis Panorama. I liked being able to go get lands with Grixis if needed, but I've been feeling for a while that I need just a bit more ramp then plain lands. Sire doesn't feel like its ever really getting me value, so I dropped it for Oblivion Sower. I swapped out Rakdos Guildgate for Graven Cairns because it's just a better land.

I also swapped in Grenzo, Dungeon Warden for Endless One because Grenzo can do a lot more to move my board state along and generate advantage, where Endless One was just a nice X drop for Rakdos. I decided to dump Stalking Vengeance for Damnation because it seems to get removed almost immediately and I needed access to a straight board wipe in the deck.

I still need to figure out what I'd like to switch out for my Demonic Tutor, but that's a tomorrow's issue.

Your deck is organized a bit confusingly, why do you have your entire mainboard in other? this makes the deck very hard to view and give recommendations for, you should probably move everything that's in "other" into your "mainboard" (mainboard is the stuff that is in your deck)

Also, have you considered the pauper dual lands? things such as Bloodfell Caves Rakdos Guildgate and Rakdos Carnarium will improve your chances of being able to cast your spells.
