Allows your Goblins to compete with the many first striking knights.

this card is sadly overlooked, ALL red creatures you control gain first strike

Why doesn't this have over 4 stars? It's goddamn first strike for everyone for only 2 CMC!

Holy crap, this guy with Goblin Chieftain just rock faces.

As much as I play against goblins locally, I'm surprised I don't see this guy get played much. He seems like a really solid 2 drop.

I'm excited to get this card into my Krenko, Mob Boss led EDH deck.

Is it sad that the main reason I got deck was for this card.

I love this guy--a first-striking Ball Lightning is hilarious!--but his lack of use just indicates the problem with first strike. Whenever players have a choice between granting first strike and something like granting +1/+1, or haste, or flying, or nearly anything else, the latter sees play. It might just be that decks haven't figured out how to optimize the advantage first strike offers.

First strike Woolly Thoctar? First strike Hushblade? First strike Kird Ape? First strike Hackblade? Grimblade?

He seems like he'd be ok in zoo or some other aggro archtypes.

Goblin Piledriver with first strike is a very scary thought indeed.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
