"Red really gets the shaft... This is seriously red's best card for this cycle? Looks like I'll be taking another snooze for the Mirrodin cycle. My wallet will be happier for it though =D so thanks I guess.


Green gets broken card, "Green Sun's Zenith"... while Red gets a 2-2 goblin unworthy of a paper shredder."

Oh? I didn't know the cycle was Green Sun's Zenith, White Sun's Zenith, Blue Sun's Zenith, Black Sun's Zenith, Goblin Wardriver. Thanks for pointing out; I totally would have missed it otherwise.

Putting that god-awful comment aside, this card really breaks some face. Or rather, Battle Cry really breaks some face and this happens to be a pretty good card with Battle Cry on it. RR hurts as opposed to 1R, but everything about it just screams "Kuldotha Red!" so I can't see that being a hindrance in most cases. Having a 2/2 Battle Cri... (see all)

Solid card.

Baby you can drive my war, and maybe I'll love you.

I pulled 3 of these and 2 signal pests from my fat pack. And a contested war zone. I think I know what direction I'll spend my singles money on, although buying Mox Opals is going to kill me. (It'll be soooo worth it.)

EDIT: Scratch that part about building a Kuldotha Red clone. This guy shines in extended next to Ball Lighting. Which is exactly where he fits in my curve :)

This card is alright, IMO. In goblin decks that specialize in hoards of tokens and power-buffs (like mine), this guy seems a little lack-luster. Plus, he will probably only swing once before the blockers kill him. Battle cry is a good alpha-strike ability, which is why it is paired best with white and cards like brave the elements.

I love this card so much.
With a few other goblins, you can do 15 damage by turn 3.

T1 R then play Accorder's Sheild (or a 0 costing artifact) then Kuldotha Rebirth

T2 R Goblin Wardriver (maybe atttack for 3 with the 1/1 goblins)

T3 R Goblin Chieftain, then attack with everything.

If your opp has no creatures by this point, you have done 15-18 damage.

i love this card with the way my standard deck is set up i have even more fire power than ever. i like being able to dish out alot of pain with my goblins.
turn 1 quest for the goblin lord
turn 2 cheap artifact/kuldotha rebirth
turn 3 pyretic ritual/goblin wardriver/goblin bushwhacker swinging for 25(5 each)
i love when i get to play rough.

Wow! What an awesome goblin!

He is unapologetically agressive - this goblin rewards you handsomely for doing one of the more gobliny activities: all-out attack! The thought of dropping Bedlam and swinging in with a couple of these and a couple of Goblin Piledrivers is almost more than I can take.

Hm... piledriver and wardriver... wonder if this guy's name is supposed to be a veiled reference to his Dominarian spiritual ancestor?

In all seriousness, though, I knew I would like this card as soon as they previewed the art. That is the biggest, scariest spiked hat I have ever seen! I hope we get to see other goblins out of the Secret Warren before our visit to Mirrodin is over!

Actually, to be honest, I think you're wrong.
Sure, red trades power for toughness a lot, (ie Ball Lightning),
But he isn't a "Red card" so much as a "Goblin"
Look at gobbies: a majority of them have pretty equal P/T ratios,
And most of them 2 or less.
White is in love with first strike, too, where high P to T ratios work best.
So, where I get the claim you're making,
This guy seems completely natural to me,
And simply doesn't need to trade with Accorder Paladin.
