Great suggestions. I've never considered Skirk Fire Marshal before, but I feel like he could really work give all the goblin tech I'm running in this version.
Shared Animosity is another that never seemed to find it's way onto my radar, and looks great for an alternate wincon.
The symmetrical effect of Genesis Chamber led to too much residual damage being pointed my way in the last version, but given how much leaner this one is, it might be worth it. Especially since I'm debating working in some of the new dash creatures from Dragons of Tarkir.
I'll definitely test these three out, thanks for the suggestions.
Goblin Chieftain looks good at first glance, but more often then not I need all the creatures I have on hand for defense (and unlike Shared Animosity, it's doubtful I'd get a chance to pull a win from it).
Spinerock Knoll hates me. Like, seriously. It's basically been a mountain that comes into play tapped every time I've played it. I've chalked it up to gremlins and moved on.
Slate of Ancestry is interesting. Not sure how I feel about it at first glance, but it might be worth trying it out. I'll have to think about that one.

+1 from me, cool deck.
I like Skirk Fire Marshal. There's a lot of goblin token action happening here, so I think you'd be able to find the four other gobbos he needs. He helps when you lose your commander as he can get in that last ten points of damage, and also functions as a board wipe. I think a lot of decks are going to have a stronger creature set than you (think tooth and nail), so instant speed board wipe is handy. Also, because red is hard to draw cards with, if you run out of steam this can be a last ditch attempt.
Genesis Chamber is super efficient token generation, but you have a lowish non-token creature count so it might require a bit of testing. It is good with spawning pit and has synergy with Myr Battlesphere though :P
Slate of Ancestry with all those tokens. Goblin Chieftain could facilitate a surprise hasty gobbo token attack; most folk probably won't expect you to turn your critters sideways. Again, he helps if Purphoros is offline. Maybe Shared Animosity is better? I know you took out the swarm pumpers but I think having one or two is a good way to counter the loss of Purphoros and to keep your opponents guessing.
Spinerock Knoll shouldn't be too hard to activate.
Yeah, that's what I can think of off the top of my head. Hope it helps.

Slate of Ancestry, Praetor's Counsel, and Shamanic Revelation could help with the steam thing. i built a similar deck called What is a drop of rain... if you are interested to compare, discontinued it though so it is missing updates.

I don't generally play burn spells in EDH, but if you want to play them and are using the "X" ones, I highly recommend Mana Echoes. It's a cheap card that can give you a lot of mileage, especially after a Krenko, Mob Boss activation. Maybe replace Lightning Strike? Another consideration is Skirk Prospector.
Lastly, I recommend removing Lightning Bolt and, if you still want the three damage punch, use Lightning Crafter instead. The latter can also protect any Goblin from a board wipe with his "Champion a Goblin" effect.
Goblin Warchief is another great guy to add if you have an extra.

If you like, you can check out my Krenko deck here. I've been working on it for about six months though and the price has crept up over that time. My main recommendation for you is to drop the creature count and improve you draw and mana acceleration. This build looks like it can run out of fuel quick and be stuck in top-deck mode after a boardwipe. You are running two "wheel" effects; but maybe consider Chandra Ablaze, + , Slate of Ancestry, Mind's Eye, and/or Skullclamp. For mana acceleration, consider Fire Diamond, Caged Sun, Mana Echoes, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, and/or Basalt Monolith. Also, get more outta Krenko by throwing in Rings of Brighthearth or Illusionist's Bracers. I also didn't notice any artifact hate, consider Vandalblast, Shattering Spree, and/or Tuktuk Scrapper. Happy Gaming!
