Reckless Bushwhacker

Creature — Goblin Warrior Ally

Surge (You may cast this spell for its surge cost if you or a teammate has cast another spell this turn.)


When Reckless Bushwhacker enters the battlefield, if its surge cost was paid, other creatures you control get +1/+0 and gain haste until end of turn.

Nice build! Some thoughts:

  • Shock and Tarfire aren't worth running. Spending a card to only deal 2 damage is too low, and the reason that burn decks have to have every burn card deal 3 at a minimum.

  • Krenko, Mob Boss is never worth running, it will be too slow to cast with only 18 lands, and is a better fit in a more tempo-based build. As a deck that looks pretty-close to 8-wack, you want to be playing as aggressively as possible. I'd put Goblin Chieftain in a similar boat, though it is still playable (though something to potentially ditch)

  • Currently you're only running 4-wack (Goblin Bushwhacker). I think you should be upping that count to 8-wack, by also including a playset of Reckless Bushwhacker.

  • For a better lord effect than Goblin Chieftain, I'd suggest Rundvelt Hordemaster. Its lower mana cost is relevant, and can help you maintain being aggressive and not mind losing creatures in combat

Nice deck (+1), Legion Loyalist and Rundvelt Hordemaster are definitely good inclusions. Have you considered cards in the 8-whack style decks such as Goblin Bushwhacker, Reckless Bushwhacker, and Battle Cry Goblin? Battle Hymn might be a decent substitute for Brightstone Ritual. Hope this helps.

Yeah... the only thing that comes to mind is possibly going more of a gruul zoo playstyle going with Legion Loyalist and Reckless Bushwhacker and maybe some Play with Fire for some added removal or face damage. Yavimaya Iconoclast might be neat? But I'm not sure if thats in explorer yet?

Along the lines of what TheOfficialCreator is thinking, you could try Goblin Bushwhacker or Reckless Bushwhacker

What about Reckless Bushwhacker?

This seems a bit like a combination of RG midrange and RG aggro.

Specifically, Bloodbraid Elf, Bonecrusher Giant, and Ignoble Hierarch are some pretty solidly midrange cards.

Some other cards are a bit higher cmc like Gruul Spellbreaker, Steel Leaf Champion, and Domri, Anarch of Bolas.

Bonecrusher is OK, but Ignoble is really not what you want if you want to be swinging with creatures every turn. Currently you have way more 3 drops than 1-2 drops which isn't great. I'd cut basically all of these cards, the best one out of them might be Domri.

More 1 drop threats: Narnam Renegade, Kird Ape, Monastery Swiftspear (If you add more spells)

2 drop: Hidden Herbalists, Eidolon of the Great Revel, Reckless Bushwhacker You definitely need 4 Bushwhackers. Burning-Tree into optional 2nd Burning-Tree into Reckless Bushwhacker is probably the strongest turn 2 play you can make. Add in Hidden Herbalists, and you can do stuff like Hidden Herbalists into Burning-Tree into Bushwhacker. Eidolon is a weirder choice but I've tried 4 before and it can be pretty good.

3 drop: Generally you want something from your 3 drops thats more than just a big stompy body like Steel-Leaf. Seasoned Pyromancer is a great 2 of, since you're casting 3 drops mid game and it lets you draw into more gas.

Spells: 4x Atarka's Command hands down. Card is cracked. Light up the stage is pretty decent but you could maybe try cutting down a few if you need space. 1-2 Savage Swipe is pretty funny, since you have a lot of 2 power creatures and it can put in extra damage while removing an opposing creature. If you decide to run 4 bolt 4 atarka 4 light 2 swipe then Swiftspear is a consideration.

Is there consideration of an ‘8-whack’ hub for Reckless Bushwhacker & Goblin Bushwhacker builds?

I like the deck, but I'm not sure how good Figure of Destiny and Vexing Devil are. The former always only gives 1 devotion even when it's been upgraded a ton while the latter is usually sacrificed so it doesn't count towards devotion.

Have you considered Eidolon of the Great Revel? It hurts you a lot too so I'm not sure of it here (it would definitely suck against faster decks like burn) but I feel like it would be a great help most of the time. Goblin Wardriver might be okay as well. If only Reckless Bushwhacker had RRR cost it would be great with burning tree. Goblin Chainwhirler may be a decent sideboard card since there are a lot of x/1 creatures nowadays.
