"He traded Goats for artifacts, artifacts for cards, cards for life. In the end, he traded life for Goats."

The supreme 'outlet' card of the year, it utilize your resources from four different angles. What those factory machines in Fifth Dawn accomplished in team, Trading Post achieved by itself.

I feel like a few naysayers are looking at this card wrong. You don't NEED to use all abilities in order to make it efficient, in an artifact deck you could use it to recur various utility cards or creatures, sometimes discarding a card that isn't useful to you at the moment could let you survive for the next turn even, 4 life is a kind of big number anyway. For those that also say its slow, don't put it in a fast deck then, I am putting this in my Reaper King EDH since it allows me to recur cards and as long as its around I can at least do something. I think this card is creative, and pretty flavorful also.

I love this one, but... shouldn't it be a land?

To everyone commenting about the third ability: You can't target the creature you're sacrificing. You must announce the target(s) of a spell/ability before paying the costs, so (for example) Wurmcoil Engine is still on the battlefield when you declare the artifact card you want to bring back to your hand.

sacrificing innocent goats to get buried ancient relics from graveyard.

So one of my friends randomly got a goat token from a core set booster, and we were completely bewildered. "What the hell makes goat tokens!" We mostly forgot about it, until a couple weeks later, I pulled this from a pack. We loved the idea of tapping it spawn a token to block an attacker - the idea of a goat popping into existence for a second before being hit by a charging Geralf's Mindcrusher or the like was hilarious to us.

Fast forward to now...I realize that Metalworker + Staff of Domination is an infinite mana combo that gives you something to USE your infinite mana on...card draw, that allows you to get a trading post out. Add Aphetto Alchemist to untap the tpost, with the staff that gives you infite goats. Add a little mana fix, and you've got Honor of the Pure, and Fervor, giving you Infinite hasty 1/2 Goats. Add a buttload of counterspells, artifact recursion, and perhaps an ethersword canonist (can be a dangerous choice for multiplayer) and you've got a hilarious casual ... (see all)

Yep, this card in a nut shell.

That's a lot of abilities.

This is like Staff of Domination... but with goats.
