Although more expensive, Grab the Reins has more versatility than either Threaten or Slave of Bolas.

Not the same as Slave of Bolas...the creature goes back to your opponents control after the turn rather than being sacrificed at the end of turn.

this card is just great. Its the same card as slave of bolas, except it costs less mana, and the mana cost is also less specific. Its also tournament legal according to this website.

5/5 for flavor. 4/5 for usefulness.

The flavor of this is kind of stupid, honestly. How do a bunch of goblins motivate something like Ulamog's Crusher to fight for the other side?
