Miranda Lawson? What are you doing on Zendikar?

It doesn't grant haste, it has haste. It grants +1/+0 to other allies when itself or another ally enters the battlefield, but it doesn't grant hate.

mutantman: It HAS haste, it doesn't GRANT haste.

I'd rather be playing Highland Berserker.

first drop : Hada free blade (1/2)
turn 2 Akoum for 5 damage this turn (3/3 - 2/1)
turn 3 Akoum for 11 damage (5/4 - 3/1 - 3/1)
turn 4 Evangel for unblockable 12 damages. (6/5 -3/1-3/1)

So a turn 4 kill even if you miss a land drop

Oh look, it's Ally's Goblin Bushwhacker.

It fits in less decks, but in Allies, there's no reason to not run this. Considering the fact that Hada Freeblade becomes a 3/3 on turn 2, it makes the idea of white/red Allies something that's not too far-fetched. Problem is, this is one of the few, if not the only, half-decent red Ally out there. The others are simply too costly.

That being said, being able to trigger the Bushwhacker's kicker for each Ally (And twice with Join the Ranks!) makes me giggle at this thing's potential.

Still, Boros Bushwhacker is better when you have the same situation, but the one-drop, Steppe Lynx, is a 5/5 on turn 2. :\

It would be unfair not to note that this effectively gives ALL your allies haste. In an aggressive deck, that's huge on a guy that's also a lord. This is effectively a Goblin Chieftain as a two-drop. Notice that it also stacks in multiples. I say it's a good card.

Much better two-drop for Ally decks that want to be playing red two-drops that Highland Berserker.

A 2/1 Haste with a repeatable Goblin Bushwhacker effect is very playable.

Plus the little Goblin berserker in the background amuses me endlesssly.

Now all Ally decks need is a Bladedancer, and they can 'sing slaughter and dance death'.

Great for allies, and luckily for me, someone else already did the math to explain why. This and the freeblade are just plain nasty together. Also, lol @ that goblin

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
