Woah there, haha, looks like you're looking for an entirely different list!

If I cut Deadly Dispute and Mortician Beetle, then I may as well cut Village Rites, at which point, I'll be playing mono-red with some zero-drops that are only useful for Rites of Initiation; I may as well be playing burn and cut the kobold theme entirely.

Speaking of Rites, I've actually tried it out in an earlier version, and from what I've gathered (from my "Playtest" experience, to be sure), it seems to be a dead card a lot of the time, because it's all or nothing. If you use it in any situation other than for winning on the spot, then you just lose the game due to card disadvantage (remember, the turn after we cast Rites, all our Kobolds become useless). It get's worse if you add in cards like Faithless Looting, which, unlike Village Rites or Deadly Dispute, is also card disadvantage.

I'll also have you know that Springleaf Drum is what makes this deck; I love Springleaf Drum. Think of it as a zero-drop (it pays for itself after tapping a kobold), that gets your Gathan Raiders out on turn 2, filters for the mana you need at any time, and can be sacked to Deadly Dispute/Kuldotha Rebirth as soon as it isn't useful.

But hey, I always appreciate suggestions. Thanks for the upvote, and checking out my deck!

Please cut Gathan Raiders for a card like Rites of Initiation. Also cut Springleaf Drum. It is too set-uppy/durdle-y for a deck like this. Just please replace one of the two for Rites. It kills your opponent for 1 mana with a easy set up. Deadly Dispute gets outclassed in a deck like this to Faithless Looting; and with the abstance of Deadly Dispute also cut Mortician Beetle. For a idea like Kobolds, my advise would be to go aggro or go home.

If you want to stick with the +1/+1 counter theme a little bit more, maybe one of those too? Scute Mob Mortician Beetle

Devouring Swarm as a sac outlet in combination with Gleancrawler ? So you can sac Bond Beetle and Duskshell Crawler and bring them back for more +1/+1 counters. And you could use Grist, the Hunger Tide last ability to deal even more damage.

Then Iridescent Hornbeetle would also fit better in my opinion.

And Scute Swarm for a never ending swarm of Insects?

Swarm Shambler Is not an Insect but i think it still fits the theme somehow. But it will stop your mill from Grist, the Hunger Tide so it´s maybe not that good.

Swarmyard ?

I'd go up to 4 Village Rites .

Card suggestions: Mortician Beetle , Pawn of Ulamog , Smothering Abomination , new card Bone Shards. (tappedout doesn't have bone shards but u can google it, it's basically bone splinters but lets you discard a card or sac a creature, and kills planeswalkers too)

Daemogoth Titan reminds me of this 9/9 elemental from shadowmoor or one of those sets thats B/G hybrid mana and makes you sacrifice a creature whenever it attacks but I forgot what it is. Nevermind it's Doomgape which is kinda bad so scratch that. For some reason my memory thought it was 4-5 cmc.

With only 3 mana rocks 35 lands is about where you need to be. Mortician Beetle could go.

I just noticed you aren't playing Rooftop Storm or Living Death . Rooftop Storm goes infinite with zombie/sac ability nonsense.
