My friend and I were playing Modern RDW (me) vs UW Control and I swung with Goblin Guide to reveal a topdeck Terminus. I didn't play my Stormblood Berserker and Grim Lavamancer that turn and passed. Just another reason this guy is awesome.

...what drawback?
Posted By: tcollins (8/19/2013 3:48:49 PM)


I feel like this card has a drawback the same way Black Lotus has the drawback of you needing to sacrifice it.

That drawback of his can actually easily turn into a bit of advantage - if it's not a land sitting on top, you still get to see their next card, and that's gaining valuable information - something very rarely seen in mono red! Besides that, he's still a 2/2 hasty goblin for one mana. Nuts! 5/5

The drawback? People care so little about the drawback I never remember to do it! I am far more concerned with the fact that Im getting bashed for two on turn one!

4.5/5 for me.

A 2/2 with haste for R is great.

A 2/2 with haste for R that shows you the next card your opponent is drawing, therefore allowing you to prepare is GREAT.

Just another reason to try and play Goblins in Standard using this great card.

It's nice to know that red finally lives up to its reputation of being the "fast color" by getting a one-drop 2/2. I always found it annoying that white has better one-drops than red (see Savannah Lions and the Hound of Konda for examples). However, it does sadden me to see Raging Goblin become so clearly outclassed, but I suppose that shouldn't stop a goblin deck from running both.

Red is the new blue

An interestingly thoughtful card. Just for fun, give him a spyglass, so both you and your opponent have a chance to look at the top card of your library for lands!

This is a really lovely creature that gives you some good first turn pressure, but it can also really hurt you if you get unlucky. No one likes giving card advantage to their opponent, but swinging for 2 on the first turn? That can really get a red deck the momentum it needs. I'd say that nine times out of ten this card is a real early game winner with a perfectly red flavor!

Destructive Urge.

A 2/2 for 1 with haste... wow @_@

If he comes out turn 1, he'll probably do 4 damage minimum, aka Flame Javelin but at only 1 mana, pretty nuts.

If they got to put the land directly into play it would still be one of the best one-drop Goblins around.

There was a nice solution in Standard for this, it was Mental Misstep, but that was only for about a month or two.

2/2 for Red -> DAMN!!!
2/2 GOBLIN for Red with HASTE which blah blah blah... -> WHAT??????????

Consider also that if you have more than one attacking, defending player looks always at the same top card of his/her library if it is not a land.
For example, if you attack with three of these, three abilities trigger:
- the first resolves, opponent looks at the top card; it's a land, so it takes it in hand
- the second resolves, opponent looks at the top card; it's not a land, it remains on the top of library
- the third resolves, the top card of the library is always the same; it's not a land.
Were there one thousand of these abilities on the stack, the nonland card on top of the library is always the same!

No, the blue player says "Mental Misstep"

if it was like coiling oracle then it would be a lot worse

when the reveal effect activates does opponent reveal top card to were controller sees all aspects of the card or just the name?
Posted By: jmon027 (9/20/2011 6:26:46 PM)


T1, 3 Memnite, Goblin Arsonist
T2, Galvanic Blast, Goblin Grenade (10 damage)
T3, Arsonist, Grenade, Blast (10 more)

So yeah, just as fast.
