I personally think 18 lands is a little too low. I realize that your curve is very low, but i still think a deck should still be running 20 lands so you arent starved on 1 or 2 lands for an extended period of time. I do like the deck though, seems like it would be pretty annoying to come up against in a tourney.

Care to elaborate?
I think you should ditch the cliffs for four mountains considering cliffs can be slow and you have so few land as it is. Also I'm pretty sure the owner of cat was elaborating on your question about beating delver.  This deck seems a little slow for a mainly red deck and a timely reinforcements would wreck your face. I have a friend who runs goblins at my fnm and he usually does alright with it, I think it's something like this

X4 Vexing devil
X4 Goblin wardriver
X4 Goblin Chieftain
X4 Goblin Arsonist 
X4 Shrine of Burning Rage
X4 Goblin Grenade
X4 Arc Trail
X3 Thunderous Wrath
X4 Spikeshot Elder
X4 Galvanic Blast
X3 Hellrider

X10 Mountain
X4 Cavern Of Souls
X4 Rootbound Crag

Or at least something extremely close to that
