Lanzo493 those are all great ideas! Made a few changes based on your recommendations, Epitaph Golem is much better thank Soldevi Digger and Heartstone is a no-brainer. I like where your head's at by including Beetleback Chief, the combo with Ashnod's Altar and Nim Deathmantle is broken enough with Siege-Gang Commander as it is, but redundancy (in this case) is a good thing. Thanks again!

If you play your deck in a way where you always use Grenzo at 3 power, you can use card like Chainer, Nightmare Adept and Meteor Golem. Also, there's Lightning Crafter which is apparently really good at infinite combos, but he's also just good in general.
Epitaph Golem is great. You can just go infinite if you have Ashnod's Altar out and something like Beetleback Chief or Dockside Extortionist. Throw in a Heartstone and you can go infinite death and ETB triggers on any goblin you've got.

Cuts I would make.
Altar of the Brood because it helps other players win if they are gy based
Beetleback Chief is a 4 mana do nothing.
Neheb, the Eternal too slow
Apart from that it doesn't seem like too much is bad for this. Def cut down on some of your narrower counterspells, but they will surely keep people on their toes. Also cut more creatures. Maybe even the whole kiki bellringer package if you have trouble cutting down to 100.
Mystic Forge so you can more quickly cycle through your deck.
Krark-Clan Ironworks so you can sac artifacts in response to gerrard dying and get much more mana to go off.

For a Krenko deck you want to go as wide as possible as quickly as possible so cards like these are very important Goblin Instigator , Dragon Fodder , Krenko's Command , Hordeling Outburst , Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin , Beetleback Chief , Empty the Warrens , and Door of Destinies .
Also if you're not on a budge Cavern of Souls .
As for what I'd cut, Lightning Crafter is good but is too slow for this decks game plan. Mogg Raider and Goblin Sledder are too much of an investment. With how wide this deck goes you will far out match your opponent's ability to block all of your things and even if we're assuming their all just 1/1s the difference between 25 damage and 30 damage isn't much. Sensation Gorger is interesting, but a bit too narrow, and very unlikely to actually workout. Akki Drillmaster feels like overkill with how many Haste enablers you have in the deck. Red Elemental Blast also too narrow, but if you have a lot of blue decks in your meta then I guess it is fine.

I debated Chandra, Acolyte of Flame as well for my purphy deck.
The difference between her and Tibalt (I would say) is that she automatically gets 2 ETBs for 3 mana, which is about as good as Beetleback Chief with 3ETB for 4 mana. And if she actually lives a turn, which i admit is unlikely, its 4ETB for 3 mana.
I bought one and am testing it out, for me she is replacing Mogg Alarm .
Love seeing Purphy decks, by far my favorite deck to play.
