Create two 1/1 red Goblin creature tokens.

@ GrimlockVIII thank you for the Upvote and suggestions for my deck!
The deck tries to make a win attempt around turns 5 to 7 and Avenger of Zendikar is a bit slow for that without dedicated landfall. Don't get me wrong I like Avenger of Zendikar and it is an all star in my Kruphix Lands Matter *Primer* list.
Further more Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Zealous Conscripts is the easiest way this deck has to win. Gruul is good at tutoring for creatures but not instants and sorceries. The other combo lines rely on using at least one instant or sorcery and thus must be found using card draw. Consequently I have found it is almost always wrong to cast Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker or Zealous Conscripts for value. If one of them is in hand the goal is card draw to find a tutor to fetch the other.
Curious Herd looks like it would be a lot of fun in a more chill wort list. My strategy during the early game is ramp and token creation (to use to conspire spells latter). Once I cast Wort the strategy becomes card draw by conspiring draw spells. This means I try and keep most of the token creation at 2 CMC. The exceptions are of course:
Hordeling Outburst (3 CMC) It creates red tokens. This can matter as most of the ritual effects and card draw are red and need red creatures to conspire. If we get another Dragon Fodder / Krenko's Command functional reprint Hordeling Outburst will be replaced.

Im gonna go ahead and list off some goblins that I think will be great additions to your deck, while also trying to keep them mostly cheap to acquire. Goblin Matron, Goblin Warchief, Goblin Trashmaster, Siege-Gang Commander, Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin, Goblin Ringleader, Goblin Recruiter, Goblin Instigator, Muxus, Goblin Grandee, Warren Instigator
Token Generation: Dragon Fodder, cheap, creates more goblins. Nuff said.
Removal: Chaos Warp. Mono red staple.
Burn: Massive Raid, great way to cut an opponents hp pool down to size or act as a finisher. Also can serve as targeted removal in a pinch. Impact Tremors, I cannot recommend this card enough for your deck! It fits in soo well. Carddraw: Hazoret's Monument also doubles as discount! Endless Atlas card draw for practically no downside. Haster: Fervor, much harder to remove than your goblins that add haste. A solid card for any red aggro deck.

Biggest question - how competitive do you want to be? Cause there are great sacrifice cards and effects for competitive play that just shouldn't mix with things on a more fun casual level.
On the competitive end, I'd look at CMC 1 and two, with a focus on card advantage and disruption; Bomat Courier for refilling the hand, Cabal Therapist as ersatz thoughtsieze, Carrion Feeder and Ravenous Squirrel as a chunky creature and repeatable sac outlet, cards like Dockside Chef as extra squirrel copies, there are a lot of really good options.
The hard part is what you are trying to sacrifice - cards that like being in the graveyard and come back tend to get pricy, meaning that you'll probably get more from token value - Mogg War Marshal is about the best budget option, but even there its only 3 triggers for two mana. An artifacts matter list is an option - bomat courier, Glaze Fiend, the dog from the new set and so on would let you run Oni-Cult Anvil or Pia's Revolution for a lot of value, while also taking advantage of treasure, blood food and other 'artifact tokens' as they are printed.
All told, a lot of it is about the kind of deck you want to build. All in elemental awakener is great, trying to loop changelings with awakener and stuff like Prowess of the Fair is hilarious if you want to go that route too.

This deck is simply amazing. Great list, and Anax as the commander really surprised me. Very well done!
The few cards I'm not absolutely sold on are Dragon Fodder and its more expensive versions, but I have no fitting idea on what to replace them with.
Some cards you could still consider are those:
Warstorm Surge is a second copy of Terror of the Peaks. Caldera Hellion is a wipe that lets you sacrifice your board and leaves you with a ginormous beatstick. Ryusei, the Falling Star is a fine attacker that also can wipe if you need it. I realize Thermopod is perfect for the list, but Treasonous Ogre would be another great ramp card. I think you'd really want Anger in here, and Introduction to Annihilation is a great way for red decks to deal with Planeswalker. Finally, how about Shifting Shadow for the lols?

i think to play it youd need to focus on how its different from mentor+pyro,
and focus on turning tokens into 3/3s.
i dont have much knowledge of token generators,
(Glare of Subdual would make the crappy fall-apart zombies kinda cool)
i dunno, like i said im sure someone else will be more helpful in that area,
but i think focusing on mixing the prowess and token-generation aspect is what will work the best with him,
and the deck isnt gonna look like what youd expect and probably want,
but shoving a copy or two into a more traditional mentor shell probably would be fine too

It looks like you have a couple extra Impact Tremors and Purphoros, God of the Forge in here. I also think you might be running a little heavy on land and could likely cut a few Mountains (My goblins run 34 total lands). Luckily, I have a few replacement cards to swap those out with!
Goblin decks are awesome because you can get wide with a ton of goblin tokens that all swing for enormous damage.
Ideas to make your goblins more powerful could include Goblin Bushwhacker, Goblin King (fantastic if you spend the money on Blood Moon as well), Goblin Trashmaster, and Goblin Warchief and Goblin Chieftain to give haste.
One other thing to consider is drawing more cards. Goblins get spammed out quickly, and you always need more goblins. For a little bit of money, Skullclamp fits very well with goblins and can give you a little boost.
Anyways, there's lots of possibilities of things to add with goblins! Hope these ideas helped some

With Veyran and Impact Tremors on the board.
Will Veyran trigger the extra trigger from permanent you control from spells like Dragon Fodder?
