Okay so first of all: one drops of two different colors in pauper is really awkward. It should work out fine most of the time but I feel like it might turn some hands that would be auto wins if you can play your 1 drop into pretty bad hands. In fact, you can see how awkward it makes things by your mana base: if you had another red 1 drop instead of Young Wolf , you could probably get away with swapping 2 forests for 2 mountains.
I'm not a fan of Horned Kavu : it's a big pile of stats, sure, but it puts you behind on tempo and it leaves you very vulnerable to Snap which is a blue staple. I would much rather see a fourth Burning-Tree Emissary and another two drop like Nest Invader or Mogg War Marshal which would help you trigger Morbid. (As a side note, Blastoderm + Horned Kavu doesn't actually work because Blastoderm has shroud)
Speaking of Blastoderm , I'm not a big fan of it because it can't come down before turn 4, which is the turn you're either going to be overtaken by other aggro decks or the turn a control deck will start stabilizing so you need to have an explosive turn 4, which is the complete opposite of Blastoderm as it's just a big pile of stats with no real impact on the field.
Manamorphose isn't great either: it does basically say -1 card in your deck but the filtering doesn't seem very relevant when you could have more action in your deck. If you had a Thermo-Alchemist or a similar card in there, it would be alright but right now, I'd be more happy to see more Rancor .
Overall, I feel like this deck is a bit too slow. Here are some cards to consider to accelerate it: Vines of Vastwood , more Rancor , Nettle Sentinel if the deck veers green, Goblin Cohort and/or Mogg Conscripts , Goblin Bushwhacker if the deck goes wider, Hunger of the Howlpack , Porcelain Legionnaire , Vault Skirge if you have lots of pumps, Skarrgan Pit-Skulk , Savage Swipe if you mostly have 2-power creatures and maybe some more burn in the main like Chain Lightning and Reckless Abandon .

As a guy who loves goblins, I'm going to give this a good looking over. I play Casual, so Goblin Grenade is an automatic 4-of in any non-Commander Goblin deck for me. Looks like I need to go get play sets of Reckless Abandon (I have one.) and Goblin War Strike (New to me.) too.
One potential issue I see here is the low mana curve, believe it or not. With no draw, you're going to be top decking in a hurry. Another thing that can get to be a problem is tougher creatures that a mid-range deck will bring out once it stabilizes.
Looks like a ton of fun to play.

I forgot Flame Rift and Book Burning . I use Blur of Blades a lot and find it very useful. if you like STRONG BURN then go with Guttersnipe and Embermaw Hellion and any spell like Magma Jet , if you want small burn then go with Shock . for faster plays Bloodlust Inciter . Collateral Damage or Artillerize or Thud just Heat Shimmer . ( Mass Mutiny for fun.) good spells such as Reckless Abandon and Reversal of Fortune are just fun to play.

I still think you have too many suboptimal cards. Lightning Bolt is a strict upgrade over Shock , Soul's Fire / Reckless Abandon is worse than Fling and Seething Song / Mark of Mutiny does nothing. Arc Runner is also terrible because it can be easily blocked and it becomes 3 mana do nothing.
A good rule to abide by is to make sure your deck does one thing well, and only that one thing. Your deck right now is a bit all over the place, and there is a glaring flaw where you have no real way to refill your hand. Your sideboard is also weak to White Weenie, which is a popular deck right now so Electrickery is compulsory. I also don't see a situation where Perilous Myr can be boarded in. As a rule, sideboard is where you run hate cards, and tech against hate.

Try to look up the Izzet Blitz list. You definitely need more card draw just in case your first barrage doesn't kill.

i gotta say, I am a big fan of all of your brews! You have some really fun ideas. I'm a big burn fan and really dig your list. I have been running something similar with Reckless Abandon + Keldon Marauders which has been a really fun combo. Keep the brews comin!
