Don't stop now. I believe in you!

Zada, Hedron Grinder, Raging Goblin, Monastery Swiftspear, Goblin Spelunkers, Goblin Charbelcher, Sword of the Paruns, Howl of the Horde, Hamletback Goliath, Burst Lightning, Collateral Damage, Shock, Searing Blood, and Spark Jolt.

These are the weakest cards in the deck. Zada lacks any synergy in this deck making him a 3/3 goblin for four mana which is a very poor card. Raging Goblin and Swiftspear don't really do enough for commander. Goblin Spelunkers is just a low quality card. Charbelcher, Paruns, Howl, and Hamletback are all decent cards but are a bit too mana intensive for this deck. The rest are single target burn spells and these are very weak for a few reasons. In commander you will have more than one opponent and each will start with 40 health so you wouldn't be able kill them with burn spells alone. Also creatures tend to be bigger in size, so 2-3 damage isn't always enough to kill anything important.

I would reccommend as many creatures as possible that can tap for more than one mana, then cards like Sword of the Paruns, Umbral Mantle, or Freed from the Real.

if you want more equipment, check out Thornbite Staff and Sword of the Paruns.

Also grab a Magewright's Stone and a Thousand-Year Elixir

Untapping Krenko is bonkers.

Some budget cards that I would suggest:

Sword of the Paruns lets you untap Krenko as long as you have mana, as well as giving a static buff to your goblins.

Ogre Battledriver provides haste to all your creatures when they enter, as well as making your standard goblins hit much harder when they come in.

Swiftfoot Boots are a must for any deck that relies on your commander tapping immediately. Lightning Greaves as well.

Skirk Prospector turns all of your goblins into tasty mana, and combos very nicely with Sword of the Paruns if you reach critical mass.

Impact Tremors is like a mini-Purphoros, making all your goblins hit when they enter. Boggart Shenanigans is similar, making your opponent hurt when they leave. Hellrider makes your goblins do an extra 1 direct damage on attack.

Redace878 on Infinite Mana Ramp Question

There are soooooo many infinite combos, even in modern. Pretty much anything that taps for more than 1 mana can go infinite with cards like Freed from the Real or Sword of the Paruns.

Goes infinite easy

Umbral Mantle // Sword of the Paruns

for drawing a bunch

Rishkar's Expertise // Momentous Fall // Garruk, Primal Hunter // Lifeblood Hydra

for drawing a little at a time

Soul of the Harvest // Lifecrafter's Bestiary

for creature finding

I also built a Krenko EDH deck and while my creature base isn't as hardcore as yours (totally putting in Battle Squadron!) I do have a couple suggestions.

Land destruction is huge in goblin decks. Boom/Bust, Ruination, Wake of Destruction, Dust Bowl, Ghost Quarter have all done their work well for me, even throwing in a Thespian's Stage for added value hurts.

Illusionist's Bracers let you use Krenko twice, essentially quadrupling your horde every turn.

Mass damage via Mob Justice or Bonfire of the Damned is always a table-flipper. Even Five-Alarm Fire is useful, swing for lethal on one opponent, use the blaze counters to kill the second during the last main phase.

I've had good luck with Sword of the Paruns for tapping Krenko multiple times in a turn.

Anyway, great deck!
