Hi, I really like the deck and I've made a lot of mono red decks recently so hopefully I can add some good suggestions:
Daretti, Scrap Savant - I think even for pure looting he is a great addition and meshes well with squee. Red has the corner on the market for artifact recursion so it might be a good idea to consider Goblin Welder too. Artifacts like Memory Jar or Eldrazi Monument(flying is pretty relevant with goblins) are excellent in mono red and win games.
Past in Flames/Recoup - Personally I include them in every mono red build, they are pure gas when you need it either from the hand or graveyard. Almost 1/4 of your deck is sorcery/instant spells so they could be relevant.
Wheel of Fortune/Reforge the Soul/Runehorn Hellkite/Magus of the Wheel - Unfortunately Wheel of Fortune doubled in price recently but the other options are great when you find yourself needing gas to close out a game.
Anyways hope these help!

cracks knuckles Okay, let's do this thing.
You know that I'm going to be biased towards running him as a combo-centric general. However, I'll try to stay on the track of a combat-based deck...
Okay, first the cuts. I don't think that Archetype of Imagination, Goblin Bushwhacker, Reckless Bushwhacker, Runehorn Hellkite, Sprite Noble, Incendiary Command, Spellbook, Thunderstaff, Leyline of Anticipation, Vedalken Orrery, Contested War Zone, or Hearth Charm do enough work for you to be worth a slot. Generally speaking, I would shoot for boosts higher than +1 to your creatures (like Coat of Arms).
Burn at the Stake could do a lot of work here. You're in danger of overextending into a board wipe, which suggests cards like Eldrazi Monument. Forgotten Creation is a fantastic repeatable draw source that will keep giving you advantage as long as you control The Locust God. You do need to protect him, however, as he is your primary source of tokens in this list. Lightning Greaves is a must for this purpose. If you play in a meta with a lot of draw, Plagiarism is cute (and dirty, if you cast it on the same turn as one of your wheels. Finally, Alhammarret's Archive allows you to "double dip" on all of your draw effects, which can be fantastic.
If you want to exclude infinite combos altogether, Goblin Bombardment currently goes infinite with Murder of Crows. I would, however, add one more infinite combo to your deck: Aggravated Assault + Sword of Feast and Famine. I always include at least one infinite combo; it gives me a way to win when I'm desperate.
And finally, you might want some more ramp; it's tricky building an aggro deck when your best producer of tokens only comes down once you have 6 mana.
Happy deckbuilding! I hope this helps ;)

Sure! "Wheel effects" (named I believe for the card Wheel of Fortune) are cards that make everyone discard their hand and draw a whole brand new one! A list of some ones I can think of off the top of my head are Reforge the Soul, Incendiary Command, Runehorn Hellkite, Dragon Mage, Wheel of Fate, and Magus of the Wheel.
If you are new to looking for Magic stuff for EDH decks, a site I definitely recommend checking out is EDHRec https://edhrec.com/. They take in a bunch of data from people creating decks for commanders so you can get some ideas of great combinations. For example, here is your commander: https://edhrec.com/commanders/borborygmos-enraged. Another site I've often found helpful when deck building is http://www.smileylich.com/mtg/magocracy/Magocracy_G1.html. It helps me find cards that I hadn't even thought of if I know what sort of effect I want.

Hey I am a long time Aurelia player. I have a deck that functions similarly to yours, you can check it out for some ideas here http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/aurelia-angel-tribal-1/.
First off you need a lot more lands. I would run 39-40 for a deck like this. You never want to miss a land drop.
For mana production and ramp: Thran Dynamo Gilded Lotus Quicksilver Amulet Belbe's Portal Hedron Archive Gift of Estates Land Tax Tithe Burnished HartFor Removal: Day of Judgment Blasphemous Act, Fault Line Earthquake Return to Dust Comeuppance.
Creatures: I like the idea of sticking to one tribe, I recommend working your way in that direction even if it takes a while to achieve. The suggestions above will work for any type of big creatures, angels, giants, dragons, eldrazi etc. High impact angels Reya Dawnbringer Emeria Shepherd Sunblast Angel Angel of the Dire Hour. Some high impact giants Hammerfist Giant Inferno Titan.
Card draw: Wheel of fortune is great but expensive so Runehorn Hellkite, and Reforge the Soul and Dragon Mage are budget options. Planar Bridge is great in a high mana deck, you can tutor for the permanent you want most. Otherwise group hug cards are also reasonable Temple Bell, Howling Mine Font of Mythos Horn of Greed.
Things I would cut:Both Archetypes - they get lost easily to board wipes. Fall of the hammer, suppression bonds, solemnity, fall of the hammer, blazing volley, disaster radius, breath of darigaaz, dawnglare invoker, bloodshot Cyclops, anya, prism ring, and saving grace. All of these cards can be replaced with better more impactful cards listed above.
I would also cut Blade of Selves and Conjurer's Closet since they are not well supported in this deck. You really want to be using a lot of enter the battlefield creatures, so this doesn't seem like the right home for those cards.
Anyways, let me know what you think.

Those are the priciest in the deck, though, most of the wheels and non foil cards were budget friendly.. yea i was restricted by budget for the first 3 years, but i built it more Fork / Dark Ritual + wheels, i find the upkeep draws like Howling Mine give your opponents too much card advantage/answers without Notion Thief and is just pure card advantage to opponents without nekusar or Underworld Dreams effects.
Some budget options
.. i could go on, i wasn't speaking purely of the budget cards i was just pointing out ive put 6 years and a lot of money into building mine so there are some budget ideas in that list

I know it's been over a week, but I'm glad the suggestions were helpful! Why not a potentially excessive amount of them?!
Somehow, all of the cycle lands completely slipped my mind before. In a deck designed to draw as many cards as possible, you'd likely want all of the lands that can turn themselves into cards.
Blasted Landscape, Forgotten Cave, Lonely Sandbar, Remote Isle, Smoldering Crater, and the new ones coming out along with The Locust God in the new set, Desert of the Fervent and Desert of the Mindful. Mikokoro, Center of the Sea and Geier Reach Sanitarium Could also be decent.
Oh, and WHEELS! Don't even get me started on wheel effects! Dragon Mage, Forgotten Creation, Magus of the Wheel, Fateful Showdown, Incendiary Command, Collective Defiance, Reforge the Soul, Runehorn Hellkite, Wheel of Fate, Memory Jar, Magus of the Jar... I can't think of any more.
A nice way to take advantage of your swarm's sheer size is to use Breath of Fury, which can provide infinite combat phases when paired with Bident of Thassa, Coastal Piracy, or Windreader Sphinx, but it's really just good on its own..
If you can't tell, I've been thinking about building this deck since Locust God was spoiled.

Happy gathering!
