Creature — Goblin Shaman
Kinship - At the beginning of your upkeep, you may look at the top card of your library. If it shares a creature type with Sensation Gorger, you may reveal it. If you do, each player discards his or her hand and draws four cards.

more one-card combos:
Search up Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Lightning Crafter , then any Goblin sac outlet (too many to list), or anything that triggers off of etb or death ( Pashalik Mons / Boggart Shenanigans / Warteye Witch ). With a sac outlet, you get infinite damage from Lightning Crafter copies, and infinite of the sac effect (for example with Skirk Prospector , infinite red mana.
Moggcatcher fetching all three pieces on its own is pretty slow, requiring a full turn after you play it to use it, then still requiring an additional untap and activation. One way to use it is, EOT, fetch Kiki, copy Moggcatcher, fetch
with the copy, untap Kiki, Moggcatcher, and copy. Get a card with champion (adorementioned Lightning Crafter, or
using the Moggcatcher or the copy of Moggcatcher. Win
Another way is EOT get Sensation Gorger , then in response to upkeep trigger, get Goblin Recruiter . This has bonus of discarding everyone's hand. Then you draw any five gobs you want. In this case, you can go off with Kiki + Goatnapper + Shields/Wings/ Blades of Velis Vel for meme value (turn Kiki into a goat)
can achieve same speed because it is a sac outlet itself. EOT get Moggcatcher, untap, Moggcatcher gets Kiki, Kiki copies Moggcatcher, Moggcatcher copy gets Lightning Crafter.
In response to Champion trigger, Cateran Overlord gets Changeling Berserker , Berserker champions Kiki, then let Lightning Crafter champion trigger resolve, tucking Berserker (or just sac it), which brings Kiki back untapped. Now you have Kiki untapped, Crafter, and a sac outlet, which is enough to win.

This is a big fat aggro deck, it looks like ponza top end without the land denial package. (but it goes wide instead of tall)
You miss out on the best goblins:
- Sensation Gorger - is basically a dark confidant in the right deck
- Goblin Chainwhirler - is AWESOME - yes it kills tokens. More importantly its a 3/3 with FIRST STRIKE for 3 mana. If you have lord(s) out it basically kills anything without risk to itself. And due to the fact that you can Lightning Bolt after first strike damage is dealt, it can extend the utility of burn spell as removal, taking down even titans or wurmcoil engine and the like, without taking a single point of damage.
If i were in your place i would try to build red goblins with a light black splash for Warren Weirding & sidebaord + disruption - and try to figure out a way to reliably have a 4+ power to get the discount on Bolt Bend (be it by utilizing lords, or some other route)

The first one to make me pause was Goblin Wizard It's one I had never seen and the fact that I can cheat a goblin into play without connecting like with Goblin Lackey or Warren Instigator is just awesome. I need to check into it to be sure but if she can allow me to get around Experimental Frenzy 's no playing cards from hand text she might be a great addition to Ib's arsenal.
(working on writing up my Ib deck btw so stay tuned for that)
Sensation Gorger was the other one that made me ooh and ahhh for a moment. Card draw in red is always hard to find so that will likely find a home as well eventually.
BTW Ender666666 when I was going through my Ib deck to add the list here on T/O I came upon another couple of cards you might consider as they pair with Shared Animosity pretty well. The first is Raid Bombardment the second is a newer one from Ravnica Allegiance called Cavalcade of Calamity . I swear that thing was printed for us goblin lovers lol
Attack with all your little 1/1's and stack the triggers so that first either Bombardment or Cavalcade drain the enemy, then buff your gobbers with Shared Animosity to deliver that big Arnold Swarzagoblin style punch.

crowned Thanks for the comments! I will give you my thoughts on each of them.
Herald's Horn - I like the idea of this in tribal decks, but what I noticed is that I cast on average 4 Goblins a game, including Ib. Since I try to only run the utility Goblins, it means I only have 17, so the chance of proc'ing the second ability is really low. A similar problem happened when I ran Sensation Gorger. I could use his kinship ability about every 10 times I casted it, and I had more Goblins at the time.
Path of Ancestry - This suffers from the same problem as Horn/Gorger do in this deck, but ultimately it's the ETBT that kills it. I've cut away all the ETBT lands I had because it was becoming an issue every game. I can only bear to keep the last one I have in the deck, Boseiju, Who Shelters All, because red has so few options for cast protection.
Squee, the Immortal - One of the first versions of this deck almost two years ago had 15+ ETB effects, and I ran the OG Squee and loved it. Now I am down to just Purphoros, and it feels like recasting him only really gets me the chump blocker. The devotion for Nykthos is a fair point, and ever since dropping Kiki-Jiki I notice it more than I used to. I think bringing Solemn Simulacrum would provide a lot of the same benefits as Squee, but in a way this deck can take more advantage of.
Springleaf Drum - This is a great suggestion, and I think treating it like a budget Mox is definitely fair. The main deck is in a really good place right now for ramp/mana, but I am putting the drum into the budget version right away.
Goblin Chainwhirler - I'm not sure why I never really looked into this guy, as he seems really solid. Like you said, a low to the ground wipe that hits a lot of utility creatures and pokes planeswalkers is pretty good. Going to add this to the sideboard and try to find a spot for it.

Saw your post on Reddit! Lantern of Insight is a must have. Cloak and Dagger is a great equipment that automatically attaches to grenzo. Magus of the Wheel could be replaced with Sensation Gorger for that tasty tribal zest. Dolmen Gate is awesome for protecting your attackers. if Blood Moon or Magus of the Moon are within your budget, I highly suggest them. they are great on their own, and with Goblin King, all of your goblins are unblockable.
If you wanted to make this deck more competitive, I would move away from goblin tribal entirely. Krenko is really the best commander for goblin tribal and any deck with him in it just becomes a Krenko deck. There are awesome cards outside of goblins such as Pyreheart Wolf, Neheb, the Eternal, and Rapacious One that would really make the deck shine. those combined with mana doubling artifacts and a few stax elements such as Smokestack, Urabrask the Hidden, Stranglehold, Heat Stroke, and War's Toll make for a quite strong deck.

I would suggest focusing on having large numbers of low cost Goblins and ones with utility rather than big ones. Battle Squadron, Voracious Dragon, and Berserkers' Onslaught could be cut.
You might cut some of the anthems, or just play more efficient ones. Vanquisher's Banner gives card draw which is really helpful for this deck. Adaptive Automaton is worth a shot as a 2 CMC Goblin lord. Goblin King gives mountainwalk which could be relevant in multiplayer games. The new Goblin Trashmaster is a lord that also provides artifact removal. Ogre Battledriver and In the Web of War give haste and also pump your Goblins, so could replace Hammer of Purphoros.
Mana Echoes could be good to generate mana whenever you make or play Goblins, and also goes infinite with Umbral Mantle or Sword of the Paruns on Krenko if you would include those in your deck. Thornbite Staff can untap Krenko for free whenever a Goblin dies, so it goes infinite with any sac outlet. Ashnod's Altar is another good one.

I may replace Grenzo, Havoc Raiser with Sensation Gorger. Grenzo seems a little lackluster right now. Plus if I can tutor for Goblin Recruiter, I can find Sensation Gorger and whatever four other goblins I want and put them on top of my library with Gorger on top. The next turn I'll cast him. The following turn I'll be able to draw the other four goblin cards into my hand on my upkeep.

I honestly could never make a case for splashing colors in goblin decks. I think the biggest problem we run into as Goblin players is running out of gas after T4 and T5. I have recently discovered two useful pieces Sensation Gorger and Pyrite Spellbomb and I use Rogue's Passage in my builds. It has helped immensely.
I love Foundry Street Denzien! He is not the best Goblin, but he does work.
