Sometimes, there's a goblin wizard. And I'm talkin' about the Electromancer here. Sometimes, there's a goblin, well, he's the goblin for his time and place. He fits right in there. What else can be said, really? This little goblin may very well be my most anticipated card of the set for its versatility, utility, and above all else, it's commonality. That's right--he's a common! Pauper players rejoice!

I was amazed and then I saw it was a 2/2.

Relevant ability AND relevant Body?
COMMON?

Da Fuq. Give me more, please. I require more. For.... reasons.

Scamperdoof, you will be VERY delighted to know that this works PERFECTLY with x. When you play an x cost spell you choose the value of "x" so it does indeed lower it after you choose.

For example: I play fireball choosing x=5 +R so this is then reduced by 1 colorless for each electromancer you have. lets say only one. so the new cost is 4+R that you have to pay for it :) hope this helps

In a pauper combo:
*1 mana Manamorphose 0_0
*1 mana Desperate Ritual and Pyretic ritual
*1 mana Grapeshot
*2 mana Seething song
*3 mana Empty the warrens

Crack Sulfur Vent for this... and combo him/her out.

Not too expensive and he helps everything else out, so why not?

Favorite card in the set, probably favorite common or card of all time (Goblin favorite tribe, UR favorite color combo).
Twice as efficient for flashback spells. Lets you Syncopate for one mana. And a bunch of other nice things that have been mentioned.

5/5 for being an awesome common.

I haven't carefully looked at all the commons in the set, but this has got to be in the top 5.
Mana acceleration, no sacrifice to power and toughness, and a relevant creature type.

I love it!

@TheWrathofShane: Not quite, but I do see your point.

Goblin Electromancer is multi-colored whereas Arcane Meleeis mono-blue.
To reach the same effect you'd need two Goblin Electromancers (4 CMC vs. 5 CMC, 2 cards vs. 1 card).
Arcane Melee doesn't die to creature removal.

The main lacks with Arcane Melee is of course what Goblin Electromancer gives; speed and that it's only your instants/sorceries.
