Everything looks good except maybe the enchantments. They are kinda out of place, and it would probably be better to just have something like Goblin Bushwhacker/Reckless Bushwhacker in there for even more aggro

Also Lightning Helix is a pretty cool card

As for the sideboard:

1: Deflecting Palm Ian a seriously underrated budget Sideboard Card, 10/10 highly reccomend

2: You probably want a sweeper like Pyroclasm, Volcanic Fallout, or Anger of the Gods. These three are each good in a different meta

3: I’ve seen went Wear / Tear played a lot in these decks for affinity and Bogles matchups

4: Mirran Crusader is hella good against jund, but doesn’t do much else in other matchups

5: I don’t know dont know what your budget is but Stony Silence would help out a lot against KCI and affinity

6: Abrade is a pretty versatile card

7: for whatever reason, Refraction Trap seems to be getting a lot of play right now as an answer to other aggro decks

Hmm this looks a bit like zoo. Have you considered Burning-Tree Emissary and Reckless Bushwhacker? You can play 2-3 emmisaries and give them haste with the whacker.

Normally I'm a fan of Goblin Bushwhacker (I used to play 8-whack Reckless Bushwhacker), in an artifact deck, not so much, maybe Hammer of Purphoros?

Very good deck. I playtested it a lot and would suggest one change: Shared Animosity instead of Reckless Bushwhacker. I found that I was rarely in a position to pay the surge cost on him, making it a 3-slot card anyway, in which case the Bushwhacker is just a 2/1 with haste. Try the Shared Animosity. I think you'll like it.

ItsMeJax Ive played bushwhacker zoo in the past and Reckless Bushwhacker was always a great card. Some people (including myself) played 4 Manamorphose along with the 4 Burning-Tree Emissary to give bushwhacker a bit more consistency. Below I have attached links to different competitive RG Zoo list that have done well in different tournaments:

Bushwhacker Zoo

Bushwhacker Zoo w/ hidden herbalists

Big Zoo that looks to go bigger and more midrange

A more burn oriented Zoo deck

Death's Shadow Zoo AKA Zooicide

Cool looking deck. If I could make a couple of suggestions that would keep the deck in budget and on flavor, I think you'll have a much stronger deck. First, I'd like to recommend lowering your mana costs down to just 1s and 2s. This way you'll be faster out the gate, hopefully killing your op on turn 3 or 4. Stuff like Goblin Bushwhacker and/or Reckless Bushwhacker are both very powerful in decks that make a bunch of little creatures. You can also include some goblin synergies in here, like Goblin King or Goblin Piledriver. A big include that I definitely recommend is Goblin Grenade. Some good 2 drops are Mogg War Marshal and Goblin Instigator. So with this in mind, I would cut all the spells above 2 mana, including the x spells, and add more powerful 1 and 2 drops.
