Well, do you know Krenko, Mob Boss ? Also, good mono-colored lands don't have to be expensive, you could consider Smoldering Spires , Teetering Peaks or Looming Spires ; even a neutral one like Sunscorched Desert wouldn't hurt (yourself at least).

As I see it you play every single most expensive goblin on the market. If you don't have the cards yet and want to start with a budget goblin deck, have a look at mine. Ok, it may not be as effective, but still, it wins games : Thud 4 Life

I'm kind of new to the game but I started to play with a mono red burn deck. I don't know how much you want to spend, but you could get started with less than 50 bocks.

Remove the 4 Vexing Devil from my Guttersnipe's Burning Rage and you have quite a powerfull deck for almost nothing. Again, I play red only, for other colors, I'm not so sure but a mono black zombie deck like Zombie land strikes again ! (not mine, this one) is very fun to play an would cost almost nothing.

You could upgrade your land base by a lot: Opal Palace, Path of Ancestry, Gateway Plaza, Rupture Spire, Transguild Promenade ... ditch Grotto and Shores. I'd consider running the best utility land for each color (Sejiri Steppe, Halimar Depths, Bojuka Bog and/or Mortuary Mire, Teetering Peaks, Khalni Garden) in combination with Crop Rotation as well.

I think you need to up your land count. Since your commander is 6 cmc you probably need 38 lands. I like Teetering Peaks Ramunap Ruins and Blighted Gorge. You might be able to go down some creatures.

Have you considered putting in Looming Spires or Teetering Peaks as good buff lands

Why Fatal Frenzy and no Temur Battle Rage? Also, running Cavern of Souls in replace of four Mountains would help Crusher to be uncounterable, and Fatal Frenzy only costs so by the fourth turn (when you go off) you would have the to play the Frenzy.

Maybe adding in Teetering Peaks or Looming Spires to increase Crusher's power without spending mana would help too, because even tho they come in tapped, you only need three lands on the fourth turn to win. You would need to mill one less card if you play Spires and TWO less cards if you play Peaks! Even Smoldering Spires would help to make Crusher blocked by one less creature (which could greatly affect the amount of damage dealt).

Maybe turning this deck into Gruul, putting in all Gruul lands that come in untapped and add in Skarrg, the Rage Pits using Assault Strobe instead of Frenzy. Or into Boros, putting in all Boros lands that come in untapped, using Slayers' Stronghold to beef up Crusher and give him Vigilance to dodge "Destroy/Exile target tapped creature" instants.

As you see, there are many ways to increase the odds of this deck winning. I'm not saying its a truly competitive deck (but who knows? it could be someday) except that its a cool card that deserves a deck around it.

Good luck with this deck and I hope what I suggested increases the odds of this deck winning!

Sorry to double-comment, but I figured out another thing holding your mana base back: it's an even split between green and red, while your cards are much more lopsided. Leaving out the sideboard (which would complicate things beyond what my experience can provide), here's what's important:

Nearly a third of your deck (about the same proportion as your lands, which is important) costs only 1 mana to play. That's excellent. But of those 19 cards, 15 of them cost one red mana, and only 4 cost one green (and those 4 are ideally played for free via Madness). If we went by that metric alone, your lands' mana production should be 3 red for every 1 green. But then factoring in cards with a CMC of 2, it's lopsided towards green: 8 that cost 1G, 4 that cost 1R. While this means your lands should still lean red, it certainly shouldn't be at a 3:1 ratio. You can adjust the proportion to something closer to even like 2:1, or to really make this deck kick ass, you can replace some of those 1G cards with 1R cards or with something that works either way like Burning-Tree Emissary. Problem is, River Boa is one of your best defensive cards and Wild Mongrel is a key offensive one; they're hard to replace. That one's up to you.

Beyond that is where things get really tricky. Hooting Mandrills are likely to be played for 2-3 mana at least once unless your opponent is running graveyard removal, but virtually never on turn 3. You have a grand total of 5 cards with a CMC of 3 or 4, but 3 of those 5 cost 2GG, where a mana base that leans red will hurt you. You could consider replacing these 5, but I think it'd be easier to put in some more nonbasic lands that will help you out.

Now personally, I can't stand taplands, especially in aggro because they've got awful tempo. If I can get away with it, the only taplands I'll use are utility lands (and even then I prefer colorless not-ETB-tapped ones like Rogue's Passage), or lands that somehow make up for the fact that they're tapped coming in. Since this is paper pauper, any commons will work, and there's a strong one that you can get 4 of for pocket change: Crumbling Vestige. It produces the color of your choice once, then colorless forever afterward. People overlook lands that produce colorless mana a lot, but plenty will still work well. This one's not ideal on a deck that leans so heavily on one-drops since it can only pay for one once, but colorless mana still counts towards every card in your deck that costs 2+ mana, so 4 of them is much more likely to help than to hurt. I'd even consider dropping Rugged Highlands in favor of these, since that one's really only good if played on your first turn, and is more likely to hurt your late game. Terramorphic Expanse is a keeper though, since it contributes rather nicely to casting Hooting Mandrills.

Other than that, the only decent nonbasic lands I can find are ETB utility taplands: Looming Spires, Teetering Peaks (both solid fits for Gruul Aggro), and maybe Quicksand in the sideboard.

Tempo makes a big difference for a deck like this. Get it built well, and you can even take on a burn deck.
