The cute red counterpart of Icatian Lieutenant. It used to be tech with Dwarven Warrior in the last century. Magic has lost its innocence a long time ago but I'm not the one to whine about it.

Surprised it wasn't a "Summon Lieutenant" or some silly thing so it couldn't buff itself.

Badly overpriced and since Dwarves basically died out in Magic ages ago (sadly), it has no home now.

@NARFNra: Why use Training Grounds when Heartstone would have the same effect AND allow you to keep your deck mono-red?

Flavor pity points.

Dwarven Lieutenant was never playable. The Fallen Empire dwarves were never playable. They were never tech. They were never even mediocre. I think I remember Dwarven Warriors and Dwarven Weaponsmith being played (not to any great effect, not to any great extent, I just think I saw them played at some pount), but never did I see a single FE dwarf in action. I know I never played them and I played just about every FE card I could find an excuse to play.

Sadly, this would be usable if it cost {R}. If you use with Training Grounds, you've successfully used it to make a sucky card mildly usable. Dwarf Tribal I guess.

EDIT: @Tiggurix
Training Grounds can come out two turns earlier and doesn't put a drain on your mana. It's also an enchantment, which is rather harder to remove. Additionally, it has better synergy with any other creature abilities you may want to have. I understand it will limit the number of red mana you can pump into him, but it makes it easier to run the deck as a whole.
