Reckless Bushwhacker Discussion

You need more goblins that flail arms like Reckless Bushwhacker with a description like that.

Instead of working around with sacrifice for mana, it is possible to use etb or death mana to pull off your combo.
Doing it this way would allow you to put Reckless Bushwhacker and/or Goblin Bushwhacker in the sideboard, and turn into a bad 8-whack deck for when the opponent inevitably brings in graveyard and other hate, and you know your combo can't do it.
But, this does slow your deck down by a turn.

Here is the updated version! it has the additions you suggested, Goblin Bushwhacker , Reckless Bushwhacker , Goblin Grenade , some cards similar to Lightning Bolt , and substitutes for certain red cards.
It plays really well with great consistancy. I really appreciate your help and legendofa!

Since it looks like you're moving toward a pure Goblin build, removing the Black/Zombies all together, I'll make suggestions based on that assumption.
Goblins like to fly low to the ground and hit your opponents as hard and fast as possible. The traditional goblin deck is known as 8-wack, since it runs 4x Reckless Bushwhacker and 4x Goblin Bushwhacker . Both of those are fantastic cards, since they can both swing on the turn they are played and boost all your creatures by +1/0. They are both relatively inexpensive, so should be fairly easy upgrades to get a hold of.
Otherwise, you want to focus less on the high-end creatures, and more on inexpensive-to-cast cards that can finish out the game. Some other inexpensive options include Mogg War Marshal (which is a strict upgrade to Goblin Instigator ), Burning-Tree Emissary (which, while not a goblin, is basically a free-to-cast 2/2), and Foundry Street Denizen (which will always swing for 2, and sometimes for 3+ on turn 2).
Cards can be linked using double brackets, like so: [[Goblin Grenade]] People can be linked using the following: [[user:Caerwyn]]

I think you’re running too many high-casting-cost cards. Modern is a fast format, so cmc 4 and 5 cards are a rarity anyway (midrange decks run a max of 2-6). And goblins are meant to be even faster than most decks, as their advantage of speed and numbers is best in the early game.
I think you should drop almost all your 4 and 5 drop cards, in favour of more cheaper-casting options.

First thought: Goblin Guide is stronger than Raging Goblin . You might give your opponets an occasional extra land, but you should be winning before that becomes a problem. It's not a cheap card, though.
Second: Goblin Bushwhacker and Reckless Bushwhacker come down faster than Goblin Warchief and Goblin Chieftain while offering a lot of the same benefits. Four copies of each of those is the core of the 8-Whack deck, a solid Modern Goblin deck. It's reasonably customizable and very wallet-friendly, as far as Modern decks go.

hellhole3927 A lot to reply to, so forgive me if I miss anything. As I said in the earlier post, Atarka's Command would be worked into the sideboard, not mainboard. This would most likely be in place of the two Skullcrack 's. Don't think it is wholly necessary mainboard, especially as Signal Pest essentially acts as Bushwhackers 9-12 anyway.
Legion Loyalist is a card that has eluded me since this deck's conception. I'm aware how powerful he is and have always wanted him in this list in some fashion, but I have no idea where the room is. Possibly in the sideboard to help with things like Lingering Souls . That said, Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip and Toolcraft Exemplar are quite key to the deck. The synergy between Kytheon and Bomat Courier (ie. Courier allowing Kytheon to flip on turn 2 easily and then Gideon protecting Courier to allow for a load of card draw later if needed) is something I'm quite fond of and is very powerful in practise. As for Toolcraft Exemplar , he just hits like a truck.
When I speak about BTE being able to cast only Reckless Bushwhacker and Destructive Revelry , I'm aware that artifacts could be cast with them as well, however my point was that realistically, these are going to be cast beforehand. In my opinion, BTE is something that you cast when you intend to go off that turn, after emptying your hand of all other things you want to cast on the turns earlier.
I'd have to say no to adding more Kuldotha Rebirth 's as well. Having ran 3 of them in the past, this proved to be too much. Drawing two is often unnecessary. By extension, I have to disagree about Goblin Piledriver as well. Goblin's isn't really the theme here; artifacts is more so.
I do however, really like your point about Gut Shot . Realistically makes a lot of sense. I'll definitely consider it.
