Gonna try out Collective Defiance over Fiery Gambit since it's less high-variance, and it has some sweet interactions with Zada since the copies that go onto the stack maintain the original modes chosen for escalate :)

Also I have considered Neheb, the Eternal. Honestly this deck can crank out so much mana on its own, and playing a 5 mana non-goblin to make more mana only in post-combat doesn't seem super worth it. But I'll definitely keep him in mind!

The only real issue with Slime is its (relatively) high casting cost, which makes it just a bad tradeoff if you have to actually cast it from your hand/yard. If you're going for a more lean, hatebears-esque curve then I would recommend the Leonin Relic-Warder I mentioned earlier, or even something like Manglehorn. Unless of course you plan on running into The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale on a frequent basis ;)
Another fun trick you can pull with the leonin is to put it's ETB trigger on the stack, then sacrifice it to something like Viscera Seer before the trigger resolves. The "leaves the battlefield" trigger will hapoen and resolve first, then the first trigger will resolve. The end result being that the targeted artifact/enchantment is permanently exiled
Also Eidolon of Rhetoric is an absolute beast if you want to beat up on storm, which you'll probably encounter quite frequently if you plan on playing at higher-powered tables. And remember that you can always sacrifice hatebears to things like Viscera Seer on an opponent's end step if you plan on casting multiple spells on a combo turn

Basically you just bin the leonin and Reanimate it with an enchantment, then exile said enchantment to the Leonin's triggered ability. It creates an instant infinite death loop as the enchantment re-enters play and brings back the leonin when it dies to the enchantment leaving play. Just another angle of attack that opponents usually don't see coming :)
