looks fun to play. I am also too poor for Wheel of Fortune lol. You might consider the Conspicuous Snoop line? Although it might not be very consistent without green's creature tutor. Red does have Imperial Recruiter and Goblin Matron to find Goblin Recruiter. The line works as follows:

1 Goblin Recruiter fetches the pile (top) Conspicuous Snoop Torch Courier Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker (bottom).

2 Draw a card.

3 Play Conspicuous Snoop.

4 use Conspicuous Snoop to cast Torch Courier and sac Torch Courier to give Conspicuous Snoop haste.

5 Create an arbitrary large number of Conspicuous Snoop using Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker activated ability.

6 Use the last untapped Conspicuous Snoop to copy Goblin Recruiter.

7 Goblin Recruiter's ETB puts Mogg Fanatic on top .

8 Sac Conspicuous Snoops for an arbitrary large amount of damage.

Rasaru/sdidonato: Madblind Mountain was originally for Experimental Frenzy for a little topdeck control, but now it helps with Conspicuous Snoop, or if you happen to get hit with the rare spell that puts something back on top of your library that you don't want to draw. It doesn't factor in most games but when it does it is nice to have, and it is a really easy include being a Mountain you can still sac to Ib.

For Impact Tremors it is mostly redundancy for Purphoros like Sdidonato said, but I would never dream of cutting it. I would say the least damage it's ever done in a game is probably 10, with the most being in the hundreds, not even considering the times where I've had both out it and Purph out.

There aren't a lot of traditional token generators in the deck, but don't underestimate repeated damage going out from hardcasting nontoken creatures, the few token doubling artifacts, Mogg Infestation, and Ib himself! These plus the damage doublers (and the tripler) means Impact Tremors tends to do a ton of damage over the course of the game.

The will say that I learned not to just throw it out there when I don't have some ETB follow ups soon after, just in case it gets removed before I get to use it. That's what makes it feel like it isn't pulling its weight.

I believe Purphoros, God of the Forge is a must. Gives late game reach or a potential insta win.

Skullclamp is a must for card draw.

Also Goblin Recruiter should be an auto include it offers incredible combo potential or minimum a tutor in red.

The combo goes as follows

Requires: Goblin Recruiter in hand. All other cards in library. You have a way to draw a card available. available.

Steps:

1.Cast Goblin Recruiter.

2.Search your library for Conspicuous Snoop, Torch Courier, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, and Mogg Fanatic, and put them on top of your library in that order.

  1. Draw a card.

  2. Cast Conspicuous Snoop.

  3. Cast Torch Courier from the top of your library.

  4. Activate Torch Courier by sacrificing it, giving Conspicuous Snoop haste.

  5. Activate Conspicuous Snoop using the ability gained due to Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker being on the top of your library by tapping Conspicuous Snoop, creating a token copy of itself.

  6. Repeat step 7 for infinite tapped token copies of Conspicuous Snoop.

  7. Activate your untapped token copy to Conspicuous Snoop by tapping it, creating a copy of Goblin Recruiter. Goblin Recruiter enters the battlefield, searching your library for Mogg Fanatic and putting it on top of your library.

  8. Sacrifice an arbitrarily large number of Conspicuous Snoop tokens using the ability gained due to Mogg Fanatic being on top of your library for an arbitrarily large amount of damage.

I found a deck list someone was using in Magic Arena, I don't play arena, but it looked like a fun deck. 4 Battle Cry Goblin 2 Den of the Bugbear 4 Fireblade Charger 4 Goblin Javelineer 4 Hobgoblin Bandit Lord 2 You See a Pair of Goblins 4 Tin Street Cadet 4 Rally the Ranks 2 Goblin Trashmaster 3 Showdown of the Skalds 10 Mountain 3 Plains 4 Furycalm Snarl 4 Needleverge Pathway  Flip 2 Embercleave 4 Conspicuous Snoop

Only problem is, the Tin Street Cadet is Arena only, been trying to get a substitute for it, was thinking 4 Hobgoblin Captain because I own 4 already, but not sure what could be viable, any advice?

Your Conspicuous Snoop can activate the copy ability it gets from Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker . The source of an ability is the card, spell, or permanent that the ability is on. MtG is very particular with how it refers to game objects. Permanents are on the battlefield, spells are on the stack, and cards are in all other zones. To cover all three without having to say "cards, spells, and permanents with the chosen name" they just say sources. The source of the ability in your question is Conspicuous Snoop .

lets say I have Conspicuous Snoop in play, and the top card of my library is Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker . My opponent has a Pithing Needle in play, having named "Kiki".

Am I still able to use his ability with Conspicuous Snoop because its coming from Snoop and not Kiki (rules on gather for snoop says: "If an activated ability of Goblin card on top of your library references the card it’s printed on by name, treat Conspicuous Snoop’s instance of that ability as though it referenced Conspicuous Snoop by name instead"), or does pithing needle still block the combo because it still originates from Kiki? Is Kiki still the "source" referred to be Needle?

Hail, Goblin Brother! Krenko is a great introduction to playing commander goblins!

With Krenko, haste enablers are at a premium so you can start churning out gobbos as fast as possible, so things like Crystal Slipper , Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded Lightning Greaves Goblin Motivator Torch Courier Goblin Chieftain Goblin Warchief Hellraiser Goblin are all decent ways to get the goblin train rolling!

Not sure how you feel about infinite combos, but Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Goblin Recruiter , and Conspicuous Snoop gives you infinite hasty tapped goblins that you can convert to infinite mana with Skirk Prospector or infinite damage with Mogg Fanatic . Moreover, your commander goes infinite with Thornbite Staff and either Goblin Sharpshooter or Ashnod's Altar .

Once your deck gets going, Goblin Assassin is a great way to keep your opponents creature count low

Goblin Chirurgeon has a weird name and is also useful in keeping Krenko around.

Over everything, I'd recommend Skullclamp . Mono red is notoriously known for it's difficulties in generating card draw. With the clamp, you're able to turn your board into pay one draw 2s. Bonkers value!
