Answer
A lot of people nowadays seem to confuse speed with consistency... "Speed" isn't a term that's very well defined in Yu-Gi-Oh! anyway... What does it even mean?
Do you just want to draw lots of cards and mill lots of creatures? To what end?
Even if you mill lots of Dragon Rulers, that doesn't really get you that far unless you have a way to leverage them.

No, what you really want is a way to get to Dragon Ruler + Level 1 Tuner + Assault Mode Activate on turn 1 - which is consistency, not speed.
(Notably, it's amusing that you're asking how to add more "Speed"/consistency while only playing 1 copy of Upstart Goblin...)

So let's go through the Basic Draw/Mill Engine:

2 Card Trooper
2 Kuribandit
3 Cards of Consonance
3 Dragon Shrine
3 Upstart Goblin
1 Sacred Sword of Seven Stars
1 Gold Sarcophagus
(15)

This is what gets you to (and uses) these pieces:

2 Stardust Dragon/Assault Mode
1 Blaster, Dragon Ruler of Infernos
1 Tidal, Dragon Ruler of Waterfalls
1 Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storms
1 Redox, Dragon Ruer of Boulders
3 Flamvell Guard
1 Dragunity Corsesca
1 Debris Dragon
(11)

We add the Assault Mode Engine (noting that Beast is Several Times as useful as the actual Trap due to being both EARTH and a monster)

3 Assault Beast
2 Assault Mode Activate
(5)

A few Endgame Haymakers:

1 Soul Charge
1 Burial From a Different Dimension
2 Vanity's Emptiness
(4)

And a few Tricks to stop getting insta-killed by OTKs and Vanity's Fiends:

2 Gorz the Emissary of Darkness
2 Phoenix Wing Wind Blast
1 Breakthrough Skill
(5)

Which gives me this:

2 Stardust Dragon/Assault Mode
2 Gorz the Emissary of Darkness
1 Blaster, Dragon Ruler of Infernos
1 Tidal, Dragon Ruler of Waterfalls
1 Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storms
1 Redox, Dragon Ruler of Boulders
3 Flamvell Guard
3 Assault Beast
2 Card Trooper
2 Kuribandit
1 Dragunity Corsesca
1 Debris Dragon
(20)

3 Cards of Consonance
3 Dragon Shrine
3 Upstart Goblin
1 Sacred Sword of Seven Stars
1 Gold Sarcophagus
1 Soul Charge
1 Burial From a Different Dimension
(13)

2 Vanity's Emptiness
2 Assault Mode Activate
2 Phoenix Wing Wind Blast
1 Breakthrough Skill
(7)

Which should work well with this Extra Deck:

2 Mecha Phantom Beast Dracossack
1 Number 11 - Big Eye
2 Stardust Dragon
1 Stardust Spark Dragon
1 Star Eater
1 Scrap Dragon
1 Crimson Blader
1 Thought Ruler Archfiend
1 Colossal Fighter
1 Black Rose Dragon
1 Armory Arm
1 Castel the Skyblaster Musketeer
1 Evilswarm Exciton Knight
(15)

Give that a go, see what you think.

I'm able to answer any and all questions related to the English Yu-Gi-Oh! game itself. This includes, but isn't limited to:

Deck Fixes: Either making suggestions and improvements on a deck you've already built, or building a deck from scratch for you. In either case, please give an idea of the kind of deck you're building, the level of play you're planning to use it in (small tournaments, regionals etc), and the kind of budget you're on.
Please format decks in a way that's easy to read. Each card name should be on its own line, with a number before it indicating how many you're playing. Please split decks into Monsters, Spells and Traps.

NOTE: A level of reasonability is assumed with this. I cannot build you a nationals winning deck based on monsters whose name starts with the Letter 'A' on a budget of 4($6)... Nor will I generally respond well to Questions touting "No Xyz, Synchro... etc" or disallowing cards from certain parts of the show. I haven't seen the show in a number of years and find these conditions to usually be poorly-defined.

Rulings: On any card interacting with any other card(s). Tell me the scenario, and I'll tell you what happens.

I won't be answering questions on whether a trade is fair or not, or on how much X-card is worth, as both these kinds of question can be answered by using Ebay's completed listings page.
