I always liked using Training Grounds and similar effects with the level up creatures - good candidates include Brimstone Mage, Hada Spy Patrol and Kabira Vindicator. I also felt it really put Dark Impostor over the top!

If you were willing to make room for a toolbox, it also pairs perfectly with the rebels (Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero et al.) and other creature-fetchers like Skyshroud Poacher, Moggcatcher and Seahunter.

Goblin Recruiter is another great Goblin-search card since you can use him to snag any # of Goblins. He's a bit more on the expensive side for a Single, but he'd be an awesome fit here. Moggcatcher is another good one, but again on the slightly expensive side since he was never reprinted. His ability tosses Goblins right from the Library to Play though, so depending on your normal Win Conditions for the deck he might actually do better for you (especially with some of those 4 and 5-mana Goblins in there)

Food for Thought.

Mistveil Plains and Chance for Glory, in conjunction with Sunforger and Angel's Grace, will allow you to take a couple extra turns. With enough mana and a way to untap Mistveil (e.g. Deserted Temple), or just something like Junktroller, you can even take infinite turns!

Sunforger can find Tithe which can find mistveil, so the setup is actually pretty easy once you have Sunforger. Deserted Temple could be found with Expedition Map or Weathered Wayfarer, who in turn can be found by all sorts of rangers/recruiters (if you wanted to dedicate more of the deck to being a Boros infinite turns combo haha): Ranger of Eos, Ranger-Captain of Eos, Recruiter of the Guard, Imperial Recruiter.

You might like these too: Scrapyard Recombiner (finds Canal Dredger), Moggcatcher (finds engineer/welder), Reito Lantern, Epitaph Golem, Pull from Eternity (reusable TP! gross!)

Surprisingly few bomb Humans to cheat out in -.

Fireflux Squad: Token polymorph. I'm aware attack triggers won't immediately work with stuff cheated out by Winota.

Moggcatcher: Some more inter-tribal support

Misc CMC 3-: Loyal Retainers, Magus of the Moon, Magus of the Balance, Combat Celebrant

Misc CMC 4+ : Academy Rector, Ranger of Eos, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker, Dragonscale General, Arena Rector, Aladdin, Zealous Conscripts

Guess you're not up for giving Valduk, Keeper of the Flame the support he needs? I'll also assume Helm of the Host is implicitly in the maybeboard along with Godo

Moggcatcher would be another great way to bring Krenko and other goblins you want out faster.

I've played a lot of reaper king decks including the tribal tribal version. I highly highly recommend Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero , Skyshroud Poacher , etc. as repeatable changeling tutors. Moggcatcher is particularly nice with Goblin Recruiter and Goblin Ringleader (2 + 4 mana over 2 turns == tutor at least 4 changelings). Sliver Overlord + Amoeboid Changeling combo is also conspicuously absent; it's totally on theme and very nice to have when facing down something like Avacyn, Angel of Hope .

As for tribal payoffs, one card that I've found to be really good with a bunch of changelings in play is Voidmage Prodigy , especially because this deck has no counter magic otherwise. I also really like Gemhide Sliver for ramp and Azami, Lady of Scrolls for card draw.

On the topic of more general recommendations, Bloom Tender and Faeburrow Elder are excellent ramp in these kinds of decks. For additional vindicate triggers, I really like Flameshadow Conjuring (which goes infinite with Deadeye Navigator and Bloom Tender fyi). Finally, Conflux is usually fantastic.

Here's my (slightly outdated) list if you're interested

Sideboarded Massive Raid , Goblin War Strike , and Quest for the Goblin Lord .

Added Moggcatcher , Lightning Crafter , and Mana Geyser to help us do the things we do. Since we are hungry for mana and sacs for our outlets, geyser makes sense. Added the other combo piece and the tutor that helps us get those pieces.

Also considering removing other last-ditch efforts such as Last-Ditch Effort , and the (conditional) bomb/removal/wipe/wombo spell Mogg Infestation . Although this card is versatile in this deck, I still question it every time I weigh edits.

Both Last-Ditch Effort and Mogg Infestation require conditions to be effective, but also trigger all the triggers that this deck is built around. The aforementioned sideboarded cards just did the face damage. Also, because we are not looking to go wide, but instead churn goblins for ETB and ETG effects.
