Anyone else have that friend that insists Skirk Fire Marshal is pointless and kills itself?

Another cool thing 'bout him is that you could cast him, and given that you have at least 4 other goblins in the table, use its ability right away before sorcery-speed removal comes in. Or even play the trick in response to removal!

@Boakes: you've actually already got what's necessary to kill your opponent on T3: just tap the five goblins to have skirky deal 10 damage and the mogg deal 10 damage. Throwing in the furnace of rath actually kills you (in addition to all (non-lifegain) opponents) in your equation, since you wouldn't have more than 20 life.

@Concerned_Bystander: The ruling on the main page should set you straight on that:
'10/4/2004 Since the ability does not have the {Tap} symbol, you can use the ability before this creature begins a turn under your control.'
@Mike-C: You actually only need 3x Kuldotha Rebirth in your example, so it's an 8CMC win.

This + Mogg Maniac = 20 damage to your opponent.

Pro-Red meens he doesn't take damage from Red sources. He is a Red source of damage. He doesn't do damage to himself.

Know your protection rules: "702.14e Any damage that would be dealt by sources that have the stated quality to a permanent or player with protection is prevented."

Here the 10 damage he deals is prevented because he has Protection from Red. Page 100 in the current PDF version of the comprehensive rulebook.

Basically what Devilman said, but there's the source if your opponent doubts you.

There seems to be confusion as to why he does not kill him self. I will try to clear this up.

His protection from red does make it so he can not be a target of spells or abilitys. This spell DOES NOT target him so this part of the protection rules does not matter.

Another thing protection does is prevent all damage from a source that shares the chararistics of the protection type.

He has protection from red. He deals 10 damage to all creatures and players.
The 10 damage would happen to him but he has protection from red so it is prevented.

@ devilman22

Thank you very much, Devilman. You're a gentleman and a scholar.
