Reckless Bushwhacker Discussion

foxinsox on Mox whack

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?

Akki Coalflinger/Bloodmark Mentor/Legion Loyalist - First Strike to win battles. With bloodmark mentor you can goad opponents into 1st strike creatures.

Goblin Bushwhacker/Goblin Wardriver/Goblin General/Reckless Bushwhacker - Goblin Pump Spells during attack

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)

TheMadRocketeer on What do you call that? A Goblipede?

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:
3x Mountain
1x Goblin Lackey
1x Goblin Piledriver
1x Lightning Bolt
1x Reckless Bushwhacker

Turn 1:
Played: Mountain, Goblin Lackey
Drew: Foundry Street Denizen

Turn 2:
Played: Mountain, Goblin Piledriver
Swung with Goblin Lackey.
This dealt 1 damage and brought out Foundry Street Denizen.
Drew: Foundry Street Denizen

Turn 3:
Played: Mountain, Foundry Street Denizen, Reckless Bushwhacker
Swung with everything.
This dealt 21 damage for lethal + 2.

Playing the Lightning Bolt on turn 3 instead of the Foundry Street Denizen would have dealt 18 damage, just missing lethal.

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

How do you feel about Reckless Bushwhacker instead of Voice of Resurgence to give all the tokens haste? easier to cast too.

4x Goblin Bushwhacker

1x Goblin Chieftain

4x Goblin Guide

4x Goblin Piledriver

4x Legion Loyalist

2x Mogg Fanatic

4x Mogg War Marshal

4x Reckless Bushwhacker

Instant (6)

2x Glorious End

4x Lightning Bolt

Land (19)

2x Cavern of Souls

17x Mountain

Sorcery (4)

4x Goblin Grenade

Sideboard (15)

2x Blood Moon

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:

Lightning Bolt

Lava Spike

Rift Bolt

Searing Blaze

Bomat Courier

Kari Zev, Skyship Raider

Conduit of Storms  Flip

Banefire

Prowess elements of your deck:

Lightning Bolt

Abbot of Keral Keep

Kiln Fiend

Monastery Swiftspear

Built to Smash

Invigorated Rampage

Borrowed Hostility

8whack elements of your deck: (disclaimer i dont know much about 8whack so take this part with a grain of salt)

Deranged Whelp

Ember-Eye Wolf

Reckless Bushwhacker

Fiery Temper

Bloodmad Vampire

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.
