Ridgescale Tusker is a very good option in place of Verdurous Gearhulk. I played against several GB counters decks that used the Tusker very effectively in place of the Gearhulk.

I've been thinking about the transformative idea. I had done something similar last year, where my deck would go to pure RG aggro by dropping the Pummelers and a few pump spells for Lathnu Hellion.

I don't think going straight RG aggro with a transform would confuse our opponent or allow us to really dodge any of their sideboard. I think going Temur with the Pummeler, and then transforming into a quasi-Temur Energy can give us a better chance of disrupting their game plan by giving us access to Negate and Essence Scatter. This also opens the possibility of throwing in some Trophy Mage into the mainboard to act as additional copies of Pummeler. I'm a little torn on Rogue Refiner at the moment, but I put a playset in the main for now; I may consider more copies of Trophy Mage, or going back up to 4x Voltaic Brawler.

I've updated my list and added the new sideboard if anyone cares to play around with it.

Savage Stomp could do some good work in this deck as spot removal, plus it supports your +1/+1 counter gameplan. And it would be just nasty on top of a Carnage Tyrant.

I think your addition of Driven / Despair is a very good idea. The explore creatures on their own are lacking any kind of evasion.

If you're using someone else's deck, even just as a starting point and making a few of your own modifications, it's good etiquette to mention them in your description. But there is also a chance that you created the deck via parallel development, so for your info here is the deck video posted by Strictly Better MTG last week: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgRGZbrgJpk.

Hyperalgialysis: Hunt the Weak is nice removal with the Snake around, but Savage Stomp is a strictly better option, even without a dino on your battlefield.

For adding Rishkar, Peema Renegade, I would consider trading out a pair of Tishana's Wayfinder. But remember the primary purpose of this deck is to trigger explore for both the Elemental and the Boat.

As I type this up, I see that Hyper has responded to your question as well.

I like your Jund build with energy. I am trying a similar concept by taking the shell from the BG Winding Constrictor lists, and splashing blue which gives access to The Scarab God, Hostage Taker, and Rogue Refiner. But since I don't currently own any Hostage Taker, your dino list might be a better build for me. So much versatile removal in your colors!!

I like having access to Regisaur Alpha and Glorybringer provided by going with red.

Would appreciate your thoughts on my Sultai Energy Elves build if you have a moment.

I am considering dropping Rogue Refiner in favor of Servant of the Conduit, which would actually make this an elf deck. And the Servants can provide a splash of blue for The Scarab God and let me clean up my mana base a little.
