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!

kpres yeah i forgot to mention the haste enablers. I kept the count low as thats the last resort win con and i wanted to go with ones with low cmc (so no Cyclops of Eternal Fury/Akroma's Memorial), no downside (Hellraiser Goblin), and were not enchantments (personal preference) or planeswalkers.
Planeswalkers are objectively bad in this deck in my opinion since Warp World does not put them onto the battlefield.

You should have at least two cards that grant haste to all your creatures, if you're using Craterhoof or planning on attacking the same turn as Warp World.
More hasty stuff on Gatherer:

I actually think you can further reduce the non-creature spells, and just keep the most impactful ones.
Swap Dictate of the Twin Gods for Torbran, Thane of Red Fell . It's more limited, but still very good, it's a creature, and it won't increase damage dealt to you or your creatures.
Swap Soul's Majesty for Beast Whisperer . You may also want to find room for Soul of the Harvest and Primordial Sage . There are also non-creature spells that are big improvements on Soul's Majesty, such as Return of the Wildspeaker and Rishkar's Expertise . These should be run over Soul's Majesty anyway; just not in this deck. They don't target, so someone can't destroy your target creature in response.
Finally, find space for Primal Surge if you can.

Skullion123 thanks for taking a look. You mentioned prices a few times, and that’s not much of an issue for me at this time since I own all the cards in the deck already. If I needed to add Mana Crypt or Gauntlet of Might that could be an issue but as it stands now the deck has been solid.
Chaos Warp is already in the deck. I’m not that bad at mono-red!
Don’t diss mah Scrying Sheets! Card advantage is something this deck struggles with, and any way to filter land or Coldsteel Heart off the top is something to be considered. If it didn’t break my own personal rule of fetches outside of color identity, I would add all the fetchlands for mountains I could run just to thin the deck out that much. Sheets is a small margin, but it’s a margin between a win and a loss.
Grenzo is so sweet. You just have to play with him to know just how awesome he is. No he’s not themed besides being a gobo, but his abilities are tits and very relevant in cEDH.
Speaking of cEDH, I find myself against a lot of blue which is why I run pyro/REB. They’re discard fodder for faithless looting or cathartic reunion when I don’t need them and they’re clutch against Cyclonic Rift.
Hellraiser Goblin’s forced attack ability has never been an issue really. I love to beat face and typically don’t care if a bunch of gobo dorks die.
I was actually considering adding another 3 drop mana rock because of krenko’s cost after taxing. He is heavily targeted and if I can’t get him to stick, it’s tough in the long run to ramp back into 8 and 10. This is also the reason for 36 lands; otherwise I would probably run 33-34.

Burn at the Stake: Great win condition for decks where you have boatloads of creatures.
Blasphemous Act: Boardwipe for if things get out of hand.
Goblin Recruiter: Great tutor for goblin decks.
Coat of Arms: Turns all of your goblins into very large creatures that usually wins the game unless someone deals with it the turn you play it.
Shared Animosity: Another great way to win games.
Vanquisher's Banner: Lord effect for your goblins and a card draw engine. Definitely a plus.
Chaos Warp: Arguably the best red single-target removal spell in the game.
Hammer of Purphoros: Haste enabler, and allows you to do something with the extra mountains you no longer need during late game.
Goblin War Strike: Win condition for some games.
Ogre Battledriver: Haste enabler that also buffs your creatures.
Battle Squadron/Reckless One: Another win condition. While the haste on Reckless One is nice, I would recommend Battle Squadron due to the deck not having any other answers to flying creatures besides burn spells, and it'll likely have haste anyway from the many other haste enablers you have in the deck.
Massive Raid: Targeted creature or player removal.
Reverberate: Used to copy someone's win condition, or copy an opponents counterspell to counter their counter. All-around great card, very versatile.
Mogg War Marshal: Not a bad card, but you already get a bunch of 1/1's from Krenko. There are just better cards to have in your deck.
Beetleback Chief: Same reason as Mogg War Marshal.
Grenzo, Havoc Raiser: Doesn't really synergise with what the rest of the deck is supposed to do.
Sparksmith: This is a fun card for obvious reasons, but will also likely get you killed.
Buried Ruin: You don't have enough important artifacts for this to be necessary.
Hellraiser Goblin: There are better haste enablers without the drawback of forcing you to attack.
Coldsteel Heart: Goblins don't really cost a lot of mana, so you likely won't need the ramp. That, and this is pretty slow as far as ramp goes.
Goblin Chainwhirler: This is a terrific card in standard, but not neraly as much in EDH. Unless your playgroup meta has a lot of creatures with one toughness, this card isn't going to do much.
Snow-Covered Mountain: Is there a reason you're running these over regular Mountains? If not, the hefty price tag on these lands is why I'd choose to stay away from these. Edit: I just saw Scrying Sheets. If this is your only reason for snow lands, I don't think it's really necessary.
Mutavault: While this does help somewhat, it's not by that much. It doesn't help your deck enough to be worth the $12 price tag.
Squee, Goblin Nabob: Unless you play against a lot of discard-oriented decks, this doesn't do a lot to help you.
Red Elemental Blast/Pyroblast: Unless you play against a lot of blue counterspells, I would drop this for some better components. There's a specific card later on I wold replace this with anyway if you're having issues with your stuff getting countered.
Commander's Sphere: While the ramp and card draw is nice, you don't really need it. Your goblins don't cost a lot, and the card draw is pretty minimal.
Foundry Street Denizen: This would be an extremely good card if it had trample. Unfortunately, the lack of trample, and the rather low toughness of 1 means it will likely just get trump blocked by some tiny creature your opponents control and die.
