Siege-Gang is always there for me. After a sweeper, needing chump-blockers, finishing off an opponent, burning away blockers, or any combination of them.

A lot of people seem so look at him as a 2/2 for 5 with some little buds, and proceed to think he's not that great. But that's just not true! He's a 5/5 for 5 split over 4 bodies (generally an advantage), with the burn ability to boot!

And boy, is that burn ability good. If you hit your 6th land, he can even send up to 8 damage to the opponents face with it, and that is assuming you didn't attack!

He's also just downright insane in goblin tribal. Between him and Ringleader, you can easily grind out control decks. Comboing him with Kiki-Jiki is ludicrous. Playing him turn 4 with haste off of turn 3 Warchiefis also pretty great. Oh, and also turn 2 off of Goblin Lackey.

His applications don't just end in tribal, though. I always like him as a finisher for my Ponza decks, as well as being a solid man in both midrange and control deck... (see all)

They're not WILLING to die, they're just so dumb that they're easily taken advantage of by the bigger goblins.
Notice how they have spikes on their helmets, he THROWS them.
So as you can see it fits well flavour-wise. ;p

@PaladinofSunhome: you are mistaken. They do not, in fact, explode. They have spikes on their head! This, I think, is more amazing to visualize. They are catapulted through the air and unerringly plunge into the opposing wizards flesh like tiny, terrified spears.

Hit with Warren Instigator. Drop 2 Siege-Gang Commanders. Have one big Goblin Party. :)

Who knows if their helmets aren't laden with explosive red powder?

I've always wondered why goblins, being such malevolent, greedy villainous creatures, are so willing to die for their cause, can anyone explain flavourwise?

Forget splinter twin, use kiki-jiki, mirror breaker.

It's a great card even without abusing the Mogg Fanatic-ness of its Goblins. Helped me win my first draft.

Splinter twin for more goblin goodness.
