Goblin Bushwhacker Discussion

There are tons of great creatures in the naya colors. You might consider some of them. Flinthoof Boar is a great budget Tarmogoyf replacement. I'm a huge fan of one casting creatures. Take a look at Loam Lion, Kird Ape and Experiment One.

Also, nothing beats playing multiple Burning-Tree Emissary right into a Reckless Bushwhacker or a Goblin Bushwhacker. With a perfect hand you can play 5 creatures for two mana.

I myself built around RG Aggro, and out came Flashfire -- Haste'n'Tempo, which is competitive enough to take up Tier 1 decks (which is the idea after all, right?)

During testing, I found that Burning-Tree Emissary + Lightning Mauler works great, and I prefer Lightning Mauler over Goblin Bushwhacker for that reason exactly. I also like Vexing Devil more than the average guy, as it's a Bolt for 4 one way or another, as decks like these, if the game lasts long enough for the opponent to decide they'll have it resolve, can easily give it Haste and swing for 4 anyway.

Looking at your land base, I'm inclined to say to drop Dryad Arbor, as it seems very slow and not like a good use of a fetch or a land play. That said, I can't see how you're not playing a playset of Copperline Gorge in there, save for maybe Wild Nacatl, but a T1 Gorge + Nacatl into T2 Sacred Foundry works for all intents and purposes, and will be in your favor casting Lightning Helix the very same turn.

Except for maybe Rancor that someone else already suggested, I'm not going to drop my entire decklist in here, but I suggest you look at it and see if you like something else :) I think I exhausted the cards most useful to you, though.

I agree that Kruin Striker can be gigantic but, you if you only have to do 20 damage it becomes kind of overkill. The reason I suggest Goblin Bushwhacker is it requires the opponent to have multiple types of disruption to stop them from dying. As it is they only need to kill the one creature, unless you get to the point where you have multiple out I suppose, but if you go off turn one, I doubt you would have multiple. So a Terror or any one of the dozens of functional reprints that exist to stop it. If you have Glimpse of Nature and the Cloudstone Curio, it means they need to have at least two counters available early which is much less likely to happen then a single one. Plus if they do, then you can start dropping dudes and drop the Goblin Bushwhacker which they would have to again counter, because even if they kill him, his buff stays on the creatures and its much harder to deal with 20 1/1's than 1 20/20. Just a thought. Now if you don't run up against that kind of stuff to often than Kruin Striker is fine. I guess it just depends on who you want to beat. When I play at home I would always go for a 300/300, but when I go to events I just want something a bit harder to stop.

One way that you could make it get the Cloudstone Curio a bit faster would be to swap from white to green and play Glimpse of Nature, and swap out some lands for Elvish Spirit Guide, and Simian Spirit Guide to get the mana that you need to turn one the curio, and Grapeshot for lethal. I would also consider Goblin Bushwhacker instead of Kruin Striker to make your dudes able to able to swing on turn one.

Pay No Heed, Forfend and Mark of Asylum would probably be better as a set of Boros Charm, Emerge Unscathed, and Faith's Shield. Gods Willing if having trouble with topdeck. It might be best to use the multipurpose protection like Valorous Stance, Dawn Charm and Boros Charm. You don't run enough white for Brave the Elements. Eerie Interlude usually abuses etb, but can be used to dodge boardwipes- Legion's Initiative is probably more useful. Reckless Bushwhacker/Goblin Bushwhacker is crazy strong for wheenies. Deflecting Palm is fantastic sideboard. Intimidation Bolt is a thing for w/r fog. Moonhold can do work. Akroan Hoplite, Anax and Cymede and Seismic Stomp could all find a place here.

Warren Instigator doesn't fit well in this version of goblins since he would be better utilized getting out larger creatures or lords, at least in my opinion.

Raging Goblin seems like it could work since it's aggressive. Goblin Cohort or Goblin Glory Chaser could be good. While they don't have haste they do have more power and possible evasion.

Weapon Surge is an instant speed Goblin Bushwhacker or Reckless Bushwhacker that also doubles as a combat trick.

Goblin Bushwhacker, Bloodmark Mentor, Siege-Gang Commander, Goblin King, Goblin Ringleader, Goblin War Strike, just a few ideas off the top of my head. I really like goblins and always support goblin players. If youd like you could check out my deck ther be goblins a foot maybe there is something there you might find useful.

Its a nice start to a RDW. Lightning Strike and Rakdos Cackler tend not to produce enough value to make the cut in most lists when there are stictly-better alternatives like Skullcrack or Goblin Guide or provide value like in another way like Foundry Street Denizen or Magma Jet. I'd reccomend cutting them and the Mass Hysteria for a set of Reckless Bushwhacker and Goblin Bushwhacker, possibly backed by something like Mogg War Marshal or Goblin Piledriver.

Mass hysteria is an amazing combo tool, but there are better ways of spending the cards in most mono-red lists because most of the best cards have haste or grant haste. Temur battle rage is great for those quick wins- if you want to take the deck in another direction (that usually ends up UR or WR) Kiln Fiend, Young Pyromancer and Brute Force do work.Good luck happy testing and brewing, and when your metagame is hating you, just rock out with the Flames of the Blood Hand/Browbeat/Hid's second rite
