Reckless Bushwhacker Discussion

GabeCubed on Why not Tormod's Crypt?

4 hours ago

There are some niche cases where you actually want Tormod's Crypt over Relic of Progenitus.


It better synergies with the deck (Reckless Bushwhacker), and with no fetch lands, you aren't really helping out the opponent with their spells. You usually cast your burn to finish them off, so the only way for them to get stuff in your grave is from themselves.

I will admit Goblins is not even tiered, but at least it is a small case of the Crypt doing something.

@TuckerMTG Not really, however, it is terrible in this version of Goblins (part of the reason). This is an aggro deck, so Aether Vial wouldn't create enough of an advantage to be worthwhile. In addition, it is a hardcore nonbo with Reckless Bushwhacker and Goblin Bushwhacker.

Thanks for the suggestion though!

Still think you want some Reckless Bushwhacker's and maybe some Pact of the Titan as that could theoretically enable a turn one win with something like Simian Spirit Guide or Lotus Petal.

Kobold tribal with Kobold Overlord and Reckless Bushwhacker could be a funny deck.

I am trying to make a modern goblin deck so I am looking to try and trade for the stuff on here instead of buying it online. I am looking for:2x Foundry Street Denizen 1x Lightning Bolt 3x Mogg War Marshal3x Reckless Bushwhacker 3x Goblin Piledriver4x Goblin Chieftain 4x Legion Loyalist 4x Goblin Grenade 4x Raging Goblin

If you have any these I would be very happy to trade almost anything from my binder for the cards. Set edition doesn't matter at all to me.

My name says it all, my first modern deck was mono red goblins in 2011, and if you want goblin tribal my obvious suggestion would be Goblin Guide, the best gobbo in modern by far.

Last time i played goblins, it was gruul colored due to Atarka's Command and Destructive Revelry

My current modern goblin list looks like this

This is a weird list, half of your deck is goblin tribal, the other half is VERY similar to zoo.

Zoo is a very old aggro deck thats usually naya or jund colored.

Current zoo has Street Wraith, Burning-Tree Emissary, Reckless Bushwhacker and Death's Shadow. older zoo decks run Kird Ape and Wild Nacatl

You need to decide on an archetype cuz this is kind of an awkward mix of 3

First one is naya/deaths shadow zoo, which only really runs Reckless Bushwhacker for goblins

Second 2 are the 2 major goblin tribal archetypes.

The first archetype is "Tarka Pile", which focuses on Goblin Piledriver and Atarka's Command.

There are currently 2 different but both valid sub-themes to tarka pile, the first is "8whack" which as the name suggests runs 8 whacks with 4 Goblin Bushwhacker/Reckless Bushwhacker, the second is more token swarm and instead runs 4 Krenko's Command and Dragon Fodder as well as sometimes Hordeling Outburst

Goblin Guide appears in all of these decks, and Goblin Grenade appears in every modern goblin deck.

Hope that helps!

If you play Goblin Grenade you may want to look at Zada, Hedron Grinder.

Here is a list to a zoo deck with the Reckless Bushwhacker combo --->

Here is the tiered Naya Zoo list (different from your deck but in the same vein of idea) --->

Here is a link to Sam Black's breakdown of Goblin Storm (Reckless Bushwhacker can also be used here) --->

Please note that Gitaxian Probe wasn't banned at the time, Serum Visions or more creatures can be a good replacement to its loss.

Good luck brewing, if you need any help at all just message me!

Kittacus on Goblins Are Better Than You, And They Know It!

Having ran with goblins for almost 5 years now, this deck could really do with taking out Krenko, Rabblemaster and Instigator for a playset of each of the whackers, Goblin Bushwhacker and Reckless Bushwhacker. They help so so much with being explosive, they bring your expected turn count to around 3-5 depending on the draw! While I do agree that with Shared Animosity, Fling can get pretty effective, 3 mana spells are really too expensive as you want to curve out at 2 mana and be able to cast 1-3 spells a turn, so I'd definitely go with Goblin Grenade over it; it can lead to some really good blowout situations. Also, Piledriver is going to have the single largest target painted on its forehead, as you've quite rightly said that it can get ridiculously large!

I also really like the synergy between Foundry Street Denizen on turn 1 being curved into a Mogg War Marshal on turn 2, or even on turn 3 hitting Foundry Street Denizen into Goblin Bushwhacker!! It produces a threat that rewards you for going super wide in the early turns, and can be a weaker but cheaper version of Piledriver that still packs some heat!

All in all, you've got the good basis for what can be a very explosive deck, and can even steal wins against the big players in modern, being able to outrace Grixis Death's Shadow and Tron, and having a reasonable game against Titanshift!
