The difference between 2 attacks base and 3 attacks base is small but the difference between effective on turn 2 vs. effective on turn 3 is very important.
This is an excellent list although actually the Shoota Boyz have an effective Range of 24" not 18", which makes them even better. As to whether this is a Green Tide list I suppose it is debatable but I sort of classify any Ork list that is under 2000 points but over 150 Boyz as a Green Tide. Both Shoota Boyz and Lootas are still Boyz and still count, especially the Shootas. Even a Green Tide List should have some Support to be effective so I would agree with the OP that this qualifies.

I would be tempted to lose the Warboss on his Bike in this List and add either a Big Mek and KFF for the obvious reasons or for about the sames points cost add a full unit of Warbikes including a Nob with Bosspole across the front of your army and use them as a moving screen for the rest of your army while closing quickly. Just my thoughts on the list.
