Hey xram666, thanks for your suggestions :)
I have had a look at Endless Swarm, and also other potentially good epic cards like Eternal Dominion, Neverending Torment, and Undying Flames. My problem with these cards is that 1) I don't feel like its safe to cast them early, so if I happen to draw them to the first Golos, Tireless Pilgrim activation, its kind of a waste; and 2) they are a bit boring. I mean, if I play Neverending Torment, I wont be able to play any more big sorceries for the rest of the game. And playing big sorceries is kind of the point of this deck. That said, it could be really good, especially if I have a Reliquary Tower on the board, and have gotten to cast one of the draw spells. That should easily give me a hand of 15 cards.
I really like Feral Incarnation, and will probably add it right in :D. I've done the comparison on token producers really easy for myself (and maybe a bit stupidly), and I am currently just adding power together. So for most of my token spells, they add up to about 8, like Elemental Masterpiece, which is 4x2 in power. So since 3x3=9, it beats several of the ones I have included :)
The categories are a bit tangled, but I like them the way they are. Some spells are a bit hard to place, like Inspired Ultimatum and also Necrotic Hex, because they could have been placed in more than one category. What I've done is added them in the category which identifies why I'm playing the card. And in the case of Necrotic Hex, I'm playing it as a board wipe variation that is able to clear indestructible creatures. Might switch things around later on though, nothing is set in stone.
Hour of Reckoning is good, and I have thought about playing it, but I just barely felt like not doing it. I don't want to swap out a board wipe that doesn't kill Golos for it, and the ones that don't kill him have nice side effects, like killing all enchantments and artifacts or giving me tokens. It's also a bit scary to let tokens live when I know of quite a few decks that like to spam tokens. In many cases, those are the most important board wipes - Like if your playing against Krenko, Mob Boss, and he has created 300 goblin tokens, but they have summoning sickness and there's no sac outlet. I don't know.. I might have to think more about how well Hour of Reckoning would work in the deck.

Goblin War Strike works very well with Krenko, Mob Boss . I was going to tell you, you should put it in your sideboard but I noticed you don't have one for this deck yet. Sideboards are crucial for switch-ins cards that would help you late in the game.
I love me some gobos too! Happy gaming!

Hey, really well done on a budget.
Lavinia of the Tenth affects all opponents which can detain a lot of aggro creatures. Lavinia wrecks against Krenko, Mob Boss by detaining all Goblin tokens, most Goblins as well as Krenko and having protection from red. Stonehorn Dignitary can deny your aggro opponent from attacking. Knight of the White Orchid 's first strike can help against aggro and it's a two drop source of Plains land ramp to blink.
- Lavinia of the Tenth --> Exclusion Ritual
- Stonehorn Dignitary --> Skybind
- Knight of the White Orchid --> Alirios, Enraptured
Good luck with your deck.

Mogg Bombers . It's an obscure Goblin that boasts a hidden wincon--if you trigger Krenko, Mob Boss 's ability and, say, put 20 goblins on the deck, this will put 20 instances of Mogg Bomber's ability on the stack. And because Mogg Bomber's damage isn't dependent on its sacrifice, you essentially sac him once and deal 20*3 damage to target player!

So just to get the facts straight, do I understand correctly that you had in play:
A few goblins
And handed an opponent your Nikya of the Old Ways
And none of your opponents were using either green or red and still broke the lock?
I am trying to go at it from an empty board, which is probably too big of a handicap, but assuming there's stuff in play, Felidar Cub was a sufficient suggestion for that. I understand that if you have Krenko, my Nikya is not going to die in combat from you, but that's where other players could come in to enable the Abolish .
