Reckless One's power and toughness are each equal to the number of Goblins on the battlefield.

I'm not sonnet666 but I guess I can also answer ;)
The thing with Krenko is... there are no combos under 3 cards available (except for Zealous + Kiki), and we lack tutors to find them, meaning it is difficult for Krenko to be good on competitive tables. If you wanted your list to be considered more, you are lacking the best tutor red has access to, Imperial Recruiter.
Another problem with mono red is draw, but at least that is well covered in your deck. However, Wheel of Fate is too slow, and you are missing Reforge the Soul. I would cut Wheel of Fate for Imperial Recruiter and Burn at the Stake for Reforge the Soul, since the burn spell can only hit one player and assumes you have a lot of tokens on the battlefield, which will be difficult in competitive games.
Also, you are missing two good goblin sac outlets that can be tutored by your other goblins and are also combo pieces, Goblin Sledder and Mogg Raider. I would cut Reckless One for one of them and would look for another combat reliant goblin like this to cut for the second one.
I would also add more ways to give haste to your creatures that can be played before Krenko. By that I mean haste enablers costing 3 or less mana: Fervor, Hammer of Purphoros, Mass Hysteria and the best you are missing IMO (cause it can slow down opponents at the same time) Ashling's Prerogative.
Last but not least part of my comment, you are missing fast mana in the like of Mana Crypt, Chrome Mox, Mox Opal, Mana Vault and maybe Mox Diamond. This will help getting to your commander faster, accelerating your game plan, and are essential in all competitive decks, since all others run them, if you are not running them you will be behind.

Zombies, elves, and goblins are almost definitely going to be made into decks and wizards is a fairly popular tribe so it's definitely possible. If they were following this theme then it's very likely they dropped it to 4 decks just because cleric tribal isn't incredibly popular. To be honest, I don't really want to see any of these tribes being represented in Commander 2017 seeing as there's already so much available for building around these tribes, although that's just more of a reason for Wizards to use them.

Shinkusenshi I have played Reckless One in the deck before, but i found that he did not really fit as well as i thought and it would always either get countered or never gets the chance to connect with an attack

Based on one of my friend's Goblin decks, here are some suggestions that I have.
Goblin Rabblemaster-Hits harder for each attacking goblin, and generates goblin tokens.
Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician-Whenever one of your tokens is blocked, it deals more damage than it would have done if it wasn't blocked.
Legion Loyalist-Your creatures get first strike and trample, nuff said.
Quest for the Goblin Lord-Very easy to set off, and gives your goblins a nice buff.
Goblin War Drums-Menace is useful, especially when attacking with swarms of creatures.
Reckless One-Need I say more?
This is all I have to suggest for the moment, hope they help to some extent.

Optimator Yeah, I'm looking to drop those two (Krenko's Command & Dragon Fodder) because I just don't see them pulling their weight. As for Caterwauling Boggart, it's been in the deck for the longest time, but really, I don't see the use. When I swing, I usually have so many tokens that it makes any number of blockers irrelevant. As for Reckless One, I think i'm going to keep it in for now, just for the haste. that haste makes it super value at times.
@Cotter11 I tried Fervor and found it to be too slow, haven't tried the other two, and the hammer looks kind of nice so thanks for the suggestion. I tried Citanul Flute and I found that I was winning long before I could really get any good value out of it. As for Bloodmark Mentor, he's already in the deck, and lately I've started seeing the appeal so he's not going anywhere. Thanks for the suggestions!
