I'm making two decks for two friends. This is one of them.
What I want to do is get a ton of goblins onto the field in a short amount of time and just relentlessly overwhelm everyone. The deck is almost all creatures, all of them goblins. Most of the creature cards generate goblin tokens. I'm hoping to stay under $50.
I figured there would be no point in pumping each other up because of Raid Bombardment , and not much reason to make each other cheaper because of Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician , at which point each 1/1 goblin is getting a possible 4 additional damage, and another possible 4 damage if blocked. Is this a good move?
I've also included Brightstone Ritual and Indomitable Creativity for the mid-game when my hand gets low, I can sac a bunch of tokens and literally throw a ton of goblins onto the battlefield from the library. Good move?
How did I do?

Nice, I always wanted to do a Goblin Tribal deck but never got around to it. It's a pretty sweet deck, though I would consider some of the following cards: Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin , Pashalik Mons , Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician , Goblin Chieftain , Goblin Matron , Skirk Prospector , Goblin Trashmaster , Hordeling Outburst , Dragon Fodder , Legion Warboss , Goblin Rabblemaster , Metallic Mimic , Coat of Arms , Vanquisher's Banner , Urza's Incubator , Ruby Medallion , Door of Destinies , and finally Herald's Horn . If you find this usefull I would appreciate if you support my deck, A Deal with the Devil! Hope these cards help!

Well I've been agonizing over it and I think I'm going to take out the Lattice anyway. It only exists to enable combos, which seems kind of like a dead card, plus it has negative synergy with Blood Moon and its Magus.
I really like Thran Dynamo , but have you ever considered that Basalt Monolith goes infinite with Rings of Brighthearth ? Not that we really need infinite mana but it's just an extra interaction that can help us cast our spells with limited mountains at our disposal.
Tbh with Lattice going away I will probably get rid of Goblin Welder . And undeniable solid card, I hardly get to use him like I would like to. I do encounter a ton of manarocks at my LGS and in my playgroup so I may keep Treasure Nabber , but all he usually accomplishes is painting a target on my head, so he may get scrapped later. With that being said I think I see the potential for Scour from Existence more than Spine of Ish Sah . Being able to stop things at instant speed is just too important. My LGS is flooded with reanimation, and being able to exile a critical piece at a critical moment is more valuable to me I think.
Final Fortune is definitely something I will consider, since often times all I need is one more turn to end someone before they catch back up and blow be back to where I can no longer compete. But I also can't really find anything else I want in that has synergy with Sundial of the Infinite so that and Sundial is probably out.
I like Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs better I think, I get to sac those creatures with Goblin Bombardment and Vicious Shadows will trigger off of them as well. Also triggers Purphoros, God of the Forge and Impact Tremors .
Why Burnished Hart over Solemn Simulacrum ? I would think because of the two mountains that Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician can immediately utilize but I feel like card advantage is something this deck needs. Also Simulacrum is ridiculous if Feldon of the Third Path finds his way back into the deck, which I think he deserves because he can recur more Haste effects, ETB goblin triggers, and also works awesome with Rings and Illusionist's Bracers . He's just 6 mana for all of that which is a little hefty.

Nice deck. +1 from me.
And I have some suggestion from my Krenk deck Krenko's Mob

I am working on a Borborygmos deck myself and I figured I would suggest a card that is working very well in my Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician deck, since it also does a lot of non-combat damage:
This will allow your lightning bolts from Borby to permanently nerf all the creatures it hits, as well as allow you to kill Indestructible creatures.
Super strong, and the only card of its kind.

Hexaflexagon Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician was only put in to see how long it took for someone to recommend the obviously better 4 drop and If i end up adding a lord it will probably be Goblin Chieftain as it costs less and the haste is more valuable than artifact removal esspecially in game 1
