Reckless Bushwhacker Discussion

EXOSURE, what a wonderful collection of informed suggestions and constructive critique! Let's break it down.
Kari Zev, Skyship Raider: Yes. So much. I completely forgot about her and her arboreal companion and she's a much better fit than Zo-Zu the Punisher. I was whacking my brains (ha!) trying to come up with good cheap red legends and she got left out of my radar. I love it. Instant replacement.
Isamaru, Hound of Konda: I thought about this particular mutt but I went for Kytheon for obvious reasons. That being said, you make a fantastic point about having a bit of a split between them - so I'll drop a Kytheon for one and a Zurgo to total two.
Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep: I mean, why not? I agree that there's no harm in throwing one in and I didn't actually know about this card.
Goblin Guide: I love the guide and seriously considered putting him in. It came down to not being able to take anything out without sacrificing a level of consistency. If I cut a legend I reduce the amount of Mox Amber targets and if I cut an artefact I lose consistency with the Mox Opal. But I do agree he would help help - so I'll cut a Kuldotha and an Ornithopter to fit two in and see how it goes.
Bomat Courier: another great suggestion - but the only thing I'd consider cutting for this would be a Signal Pest which is the other 1 mana cost artefact in the deck. I wouldn't want to drop a 0 cost given the consistency. And Signal Pest just gives so much value - it's a hard call and I'll consider it.
I see you're point regarding Kuldotha Rebirth, but it just adds so much that I disagree with your suggestion to remove it. This deck goes wide and large - fast. Kuldotha allows Kytheon to flip pronto; it puts three goblins on the board which, if followed by a Reckless Bushwhacker, is just insane value and can steal games. It gives an array of superb Goblin Grenade targets... the list goes on. I don't think taking it out would be a good move.
I'll try going down to 10 lands and adding the final two whackers - I'm worried it might suffer with only 10 land but it's worth experimenting with.
Thanks so much for your time and suggestions - they've gone a long way to refining this deck and I appreciate your input immensely. What do you think about the sideboard?

Goblin Piledriver - combos with Goblin Tunneler, Break Through the Line, and key to the city for big damage + pro-blue
Not a goblin but maybe Embermaw Hellion to increase damage by red sources?
would suggest removing: Skirk Prospector (why would you want to sacrifice your goblins?), Book Burning, Battle Hymn + Brightstone Ritual (not many mana dumps)

Just goldfishing around with this deck tonight, and it achieved a turn 3 kill. I didn't realize it could. Had a really sweet starting hand, consisting of:
1x Goblin Lackey
1x Goblin Piledriver
1x Lightning Bolt
1x Reckless Bushwhacker
So, between the starting hand and the draws, This . . . Was . . . Sweet!

I could see Reckless Bushwhacker it gets removed pretty easily but it's worth play testing

Thats a good observation xyr0s i think the deck will need to include mutiple elements if DanTheBear wants to keep it MONORED and cheap, but it can forsurely be more focused. I would say either go Burn&8whack with it or Burn&Prowess the second being my recommendation.
Burn elements of your deck:
Prowess elements of your deck:
8whack elements of your deck: (disclaimer i dont know much about 8whack so take this part with a grain of salt)

TheMadRocketeer i do see your point with too much lands but the problem is i dont have enough 1-mana goblins or burns to fill in. Goblin Grenade is indeed super broken but i only have one of it. Reckless Bushwhacker does look cool but it costs 3 mana (2 if surge) and i am strictly using 1-mana.
