Goblin Bushwhacker Discussion

A really good modern deck right now is Bushwacker/Zoo, it has some of the storm elements like Burning-Tree Emissary, Manamorphose and the like, so it can get super aggro by turn 2 using Goblin Bushwhacker, as well as Monastery Swiftspear and then add some Zoo pieces like Wild Nacatl and Loam Lion.
You should do research on current modern decks. MTGO has a page that you can look at the best decks in competitive formats (on MTGO), so those are pretty updated decks that you can look through there.

alright ill see what advice i can offer then. the problem is that most of the time aggro decks don't usually play too many pump spells. but i think with some alterations you can do it.
I think you'll want to play something like GR Zoo. a mock list would look like this:
I think this is a good start to something more competitive and still somewhat like the strategy you described. it has plenty of aggressive creatures that will come out early and possibly pump team and give haste. the spells are mostly pump, and trample, but with Lightning Bolt because it's great. the land base is somewhat normal. you can adjust it to your liking. Kessig Wolf Run is a cool one of. tell me what you think of this list. i want to know what sort of things you like and don't like about it so i can give better advice and suggestions.

First things first! I love red/green so that fact that I see someone trying to brew a Red/Green deck makes me excited! So I am going to give a few suggestions on at least what I would do. But in the end you deck, you can do what you wish with it.
First I would suggest going up to at least 20 lands and try to get some duel lands. I know they aren't budget (specifically for red green) but they are something. If you have any amount of Aether Hub from Kaladesh or Game Trail from Shadows over innastrad you could use those. Maybe a playset of Terramorphic Expanse or Evolving Wilds to thin the deck so you don't keep drawing lands. On top of this maybe two Cinder Glades as well.
Second I would consider dropping the 7 drops. If you are going into modern the format is pretty fast. So unless you can reduce the cost I wouldn't run many things over 3 or 5. But if you want to keep overrun maybe have it as a two of. Xenagos is cool but I would focus them as the main focus of the deck.
Third I would change zhur-taa druid into Birds of Paradise ideally. But if you can't afford that then Arbor Elf or Llanowar Elves. One thing to note about Arbor elf is that it can untap cinder glade if you get any.
While on the subject of creatures I would throw in a playset of Voltaic Brawler(Also can give energy for Aether Hub if needed) and a playset of Monastery Swiftspear. Ghor-Clan Rampager is amazing for it's pump effect as well. Finally Kird Ape is just good in these colors and Burning-Tree Emissary is pretty much a free creature. Also for haste Goblin Bushwhacker is a good replacement for Expedite if you want more creatures.
Lastly your instants and sorceries. You should have a playset of Lightning Bolt. It's just really good and buffs swiftspear. I would replace all of them other then Blossoming defense. I would add two Become Immense (I know it's expensive but delve allows you to cast for cheaper). A playset of Temur Battle Rage for double strike. Mutagenic Growth is pretty much a free pump spell. And Brute Force is pretty much a Giant Growth so you could use either.
But these are my suggestions! Got a bit carried away but I just hope I can help in some way.

- I know a lot of people like Temple of the False God, but I'm not a fan. I hate dra;wing it early, and I never seem to miss it late.
- I've tried both Mosswort Bridge and Windbrisk Heights and they were just too inconsistent for my tastes. If they're working for you though, great!
- Kessig Wolf Run and Slayers' Stronghold maybe, for free Voltron effects (well, not free, but they don't take a spell slot anyways).
- If you have enough Green creatures (it looks like you probably do), Oran-Rief, the Vastwood is great.
- I always like as much Draw as possible, so you may want to consider Mentor of the Meek, Shamanic Revelation, and Slate of Ancestry.
- If you haven't already, you might try Eldrazi Monument. It needs a critical mass of tokens to go off, but it can be really good.
- Some miscellaneous potentials: Goblin Bushwhacker; Mirari's Wake (though kinda pricey); and Retreat to Emeria.
- If you're running Aggravated Assault anyways, you may want to consider Savage Ventmaw (for the infinite mana). If you go that route, you may want to go all-in, with some X-spells too.
- Finally, I love the versatility of Naya Charm.
Good luck (and good skill) with the build!

This resembles Standard Red Deck Wins before the printing of Atarka's Command
Then there are so many budget friendly Goblins like Mogg Fanatic, Foundry Street Denizen does a nice impression of Piledriver. And then of corse the Bushwhackers: Goblin Bushwhacker and Reckless Bushwhacker
There's others but it's a lot to type. Look up 8 Whack and other similar budget goblin decks. It's a great place to start in modern because it's very explosive. Definately a force that could take down an FNM.

Don't forget about the bushwhackers! Goblin Bushwhacker and Reckless Bushwhacker add some much explosiveness to any goblin deck. And since you're already in green, Atarka's Command is so versatile and does everything you want it to.

Bomat Courier: are you always running out of steam too early, and hoping that your next card can do SOMETHING? with Bomat Courier, you can refil your hand in a snap! it's a 1/1 for one with haste, and you can sack him at anytime to pitch yer old hand and refill with a new one! it would make a GREAT gift for your deck! (get it?)
Rain of Gore: good sideboard tek against life gain. nuff said.
Dreadbore: destroyes creatures AND planeswalkers! more good sideboard teck.
Zurgo Bellstriker: such utility! you can play him as a 2/2 for one mana, or you can dash him in for some extra points of damage! great for a budget aggro like your deck!
Lightning Bolt: it doesn't cost THAT much! GET IT NOW!
Goblin Bushwhacker pumps the team and grants haste as well! great for getting in those last few points!
