Naya is good. Green for Collected Company, Oran-Rief Survivalist, Harabaz Druid, and Hardened Scales if you want to go the counters route. Red is great for speeding up your clock with stuff like Akoum Battlesinger and Reckless Bushwhacker, Lightning Bolt is also good. If you want to go combo though, Bant is good for the Rally the Ancestors/Return to the Ranks/Collected Company thing where you get a ton of triggers from Halimar Excavator. The main ally cards for that deck are Halimar Excavator, Phantasmal Image, Jwari Shapeshifter, and Ondu Cleric

Naya gets my vote. for Hada Freeblade and Kazandu Blademaster, for Akoum Battlesinger and Reckless Bushwhacker, and for Harabaz Druid and Collected Company. Fill in the rest according to taste.

Red has Reckless Bushwhacker and other good allies, but green has cards like Hardened Scales, which are useful because so many allies get +1/+1 counters. I think Naya would be good.

I know of a turn 3 win in STD but you dont have any of the cards in your list.

T1: Toolcraft Exemplar

T2: Bomat Courier, another Toolcraft, swing 4

T3: Toolcraft, Reckless Bushwhacker, swing 16

Super hard to pull off, but it still works!

For using the plan consistenly, you not only need blink sources, i think that you need haste sources, maybe full playset of Bloodlust Inciter, and/or some Reckless Bushwhacker and Hanweir Battlements, also you can get more value of the bushwhacker returning it to your hand

You may want to consider Bomat Courier for quick attacker that helps you refill your hand as the game progresses.

I suggest taking out Reckless Bushwhacker or Thermo-Alchemist and decide weather you want more creature aggression or spell aggression. Bushwhacker is only good if you go wide, while the Alchemist is really meant to work with spell synergy.

Harsh Mentor is a nice card, but I am not sure you want it in the main deck at 4 copies. May want to find a more aggressive creature for this spot. Some quick suggestions Borderland Marauder and Furyblade Vampire.

Nice start for your deck. Hope my suggestions were helpful.

Nice man.

Looking at some other lists, I'm unsure of the need for the magma jets. Think more Gobs will put more pressure on. Maybe:

Also, Foundry Street Denizen and Mogg Fanatic are better than they seem!

A friend of mine built something similar and I think it could be useful to you. For example, his deck runs cards like Consuming Fervor and Built to Smash as pseudo Lightning Bolt effects. The top of his curve is technically Reckless Bushwhacker but he would basically never play it for 3CMC since he will always have a spell to cast first and then cast for surge cost. He runs a small vampire madness package in the form of 4 Falkenrath Gorger + 4 Insolent Neonate + Furyblade Vampire so that he can safely discard and then play them via the gorger anyway. It's not a bad trick to be honest. He tried using Hazoret the Fervent in the main but decided it was simply too high on the curve for what the deck seeks to achieve and most of the time, he wasn't hellbent because of cards like Bomat Courier. He can win as early as turn 3 and his deck does this pretty often. The opponent really needs to do something turn 1-2 because if they don't that's usually all he needs to win. I posted the deck list I'm pretty sure he's running in the main so you have a reference point.
