Well, do you know Krenko, Mob Boss ? Also, good mono-colored lands don't have to be expensive, you could consider Smoldering Spires , Teetering Peaks or Looming Spires ; even a neutral one like Sunscorched Desert wouldn't hurt (yourself at least).

As I see it you play every single most expensive goblin on the market. If you don't have the cards yet and want to start with a budget goblin deck, have a look at mine. Ok, it may not be as effective, but still, it wins games : Thud 4 Life

I'm kind of new to the game but I started to play with a mono red burn deck. I don't know how much you want to spend, but you could get started with less than 50 bocks.

Remove the 4 Vexing Devil from my Guttersnipe's Burning Rage and you have quite a powerfull deck for almost nothing. Again, I play red only, for other colors, I'm not so sure but a mono black zombie deck like Zombie land strikes again ! (not mine, this one) is very fun to play an would cost almost nothing.

I feel like you could be doing more with your lands, like making a thing unblockable every turn:Smoldering Spires

I'm sure there's more, but this is what immediately came up.

I'm looking for some fun lands to add like Smoldering Spires. Not just the simple mana cards. Nothing game chanhing tho. I'm thinking of adding 1 of each of the scry Temples aswell.

Why Fatal Frenzy and no Temur Battle Rage? Also, running Cavern of Souls in replace of four Mountains would help Crusher to be uncounterable, and Fatal Frenzy only costs so by the fourth turn (when you go off) you would have the to play the Frenzy.

Maybe adding in Teetering Peaks or Looming Spires to increase Crusher's power without spending mana would help too, because even tho they come in tapped, you only need three lands on the fourth turn to win. You would need to mill one less card if you play Spires and TWO less cards if you play Peaks! Even Smoldering Spires would help to make Crusher blocked by one less creature (which could greatly affect the amount of damage dealt).

Maybe turning this deck into Gruul, putting in all Gruul lands that come in untapped and add in Skarrg, the Rage Pits using Assault Strobe instead of Frenzy. Or into Boros, putting in all Boros lands that come in untapped, using Slayers' Stronghold to beef up Crusher and give him Vigilance to dodge "Destroy/Exile target tapped creature" instants.

As you see, there are many ways to increase the odds of this deck winning. I'm not saying its a truly competitive deck (but who knows? it could be someday) except that its a cool card that deserves a deck around it.

Good luck with this deck and I hope what I suggested increases the odds of this deck winning!
