Which of Galvanic Blast , or Bolt, Lightning Axe , or some other that deals 4,5 damage to target creature OR player for 1,2,3 cmc, to go with Goblin Grenade , Shrapnel Blast , in my Kuldotha,Bushwhacker, battlecry deck.

I have:

60 cards, 21 lands.

4 Mox Opals. 4 memnites 4 Signal Pest 4 Darksteel Citadels

16 artifacts.

4 Kuldotha Rebirths

4 Goblin Bushwhacker 2 Goblin Piledriver 2 War Driver 2 Goblin Chieftain 2 Goblin Rabblemaster

4 Goblin Grenade 4 Shrapnel Blast 3 of 1 other either Galvanic Blast, Bolt, Lightning Axe, or some other that deals 4, 5 damage to either creature or player.

My thoughts:

Galvanic Blast: 16 artifacts may not be enough because of Kuldotha Rebirth, and Shrapnel blast.

Lightning Axe: doesnt do damage to player and creature

Bolt: only does 3 damage to creature or player.

So what which direct damage card should I use?

If you want something that doubles as a Mana source and finisher, then you may add some Guardian Idol to the mix. I've tried many different versions of this deck, and Implement of Combustion is a card you want to keep in consideration as well. A card that also worked for me is Staggershock which can take a couple critters out of the board, and if you decide to pack some more artifacts, then don't forget Galvanic Blast . Cheers

Thanks rjphilla :)

While I agree those cards are all great, I really can't afford to add anything that isn't an artifact.

For each time a card like Galvanic Blast is good, there are gonna be 3 times where it's preventing my gameplan.

Ghostfire Blade is interesting though. The problem is, of course, that I have to have mana to use it. Maybe if I made my mana producers 4-ofs, it could work. And that's definitely something to consider. I might test that out some time.

This deck is awesome! Literally "drew" 100 hands and it's very consistent. Mox Opal is on point. I might add a few more lands for either blue or red. Galvanic Blast is too good and Ensoul Artifact too spicy. Maybe add Ghostfire Blade too

awesome deck. I have a similar one. you can definitely cut 3-4 lands maybe even 5 running Springleaf Drum ! and since you're already running red may I speed your deck up and suggest 4 Galvanic Blast s!!!! or even a double strike card like Assault Strobe or Temur Battle Rage

Kicker - Sacrifice a Mountain

If Ignite was kicked, it deals 5 damage to target opponent or planeswalker.

Ignite deals 2 damage to any target.

This would see eternal play, as a replacement for Lava Spike, I imagine. It's like Galvanic Blast in that it isn't strictly better, but often is.

You should try Implement of Combustion , Implement of Improvement and friends instead of flask, petal, vial and some number of Prophetic prism since they replace themselves when sacrificed, and they can sac themselves as well. Then some other suggestions are Scrapyard Salvo as a finisher (don't expect it to deal 20 dmg at once, but 7/8 dmg it's still good for 3cmc), Crack the Earth which is specially good in turns 1/2 since the opponents mostly have to sac lands or creatures when you sac a self replacing egg, Galvanic Blast , Reckless Fireweaver as your disciples 5-8 or even Firebrand Archer .
