MrBodi88 - Vexing Devil mostly only sees competitive play in zoo lists running Reckless Bushwhacker, and Experiment One actually...

xyr0s- Vexing Devil is a good option...but it works better in a burn type deck Greenwheel Liberator is a more permanent 4/3 that can still be anthemed by Reckless Bushwhacker and Atarka's Command HOWEVER - I am actually considering removing Experiment One Cause it rarely gets the chance to grow larger than 2/2 - maybe keep 2 and add 2 Vexing Devil ?

The token and Zo-Zu angle you're going for is too slow. I recommend Foundry Street Denizen and Reckless Bushwhacker to get your "deal damage quickly" game going a bit better, and I also recommend at least 18 lands so that you can curve out to 3 consistently. Mogg Fanatic is also much better than Goblin Arsonist. I also like Mogg War Marshal, since it's got great synergy with both the Denizen and the Grenade. Your sideboard definitely needs some Blood Moons to give you a fighting chance against sweepers and big mana, and you need a card like Grafdigger's Cage to fend off the CoCo decks.

Found the following cards to feel slightly lack luster:

Kari Zev's Expertise -> Molten Influence

Kari Zev, Skyship Raider - > Zo-Zu the Punisher or one of the 2/1 haste creatures.

Will try to aquire:


I do like the cards with double actions such as Arc Trail and Searing Blood

I might consider adding:

Blur of Blades

Molten Rain

Smash to Smithereens

There also seem to be an upgrade in doing:

Goblin Bushwhacker -> Reckless Bushwhacker - But this requires turn 3 and not only turn 2 and if you can only get in for one turn anyway it's the same.

also Reckless Bushwhacker is excellent in goblins along with Warren Instigator. Also if you have the money a Goblin Guide is always a welcome addition.

StanLOONA I totally forgot about adding Reckless Bushwhacker, I will try it out and see how it does. Haze of Rage seems it could work, but I would be concerned about the efficiency of it in my deck because it would be weird on t2. Rakdos Shred-Freak could work, but I think the threats I have are higher efficiency. I think Crash Through would be a little slow because that's 1 mana I could use on a creature. Battle Hymn tends to work in 8 whack better because it's a mono-red deck and I rely on green a bit, but it could be viable I'll give it a shot.

No Reckless Bushwhacker??? That card is pretty good since you have Burning-Tree Emissary.

I would also suggest Rakdos Shred-Freak since it is a 2/1 with haste.

Other budget options that you would love: Crash Through is kinda decent since it gives your whole board trample, and it draws you a new card, sorts pseudo-cantrip?

Priest of Urabrask is good since it provides 3 red mana upon coming into play, thus allowing you to play more creatures in.

Battle hymm and Haze of Rage may be good since you get mana based on how many creatures you have, and Haze is just a pump spell with a Storm Count.
