Yet another card Liquimetal Coating makes awesome.

No Gorilla Shaman, but he isn't restricted to non-creature artifacts, and can destroy the most expensive artifacts for 1 mana and a suicide. Give him Artifact Ward and he doesn't even have to die to kill the big stuff. Dust to Dust will deal with those tricky indestructables and regenerators.

@Misago: Wow, what a thorough evaluation of such an old goblin!
@A3Kitsune: Interesting seeing him evaluated alongside the ever-popular Gorilla Shaman. Also a very neat suggestion on how to keep him alive!

I really can't add much to the strategic suggestions that these two and TDL have given, so I'll just go the flavour route. I like this goblin (big surprise) for his flavour. That wicked grin is so perfect - he is wrecking that spider and absolutely loving his own mischief. He doesn't seem to have reacted to the little tail fire he's got going there, which makes you wonder - is that a manic grin on his face? Or is he about to jump up and start running around screaming in a comical fashion?

I don't have the answer, but I can tell you that the thought of this guy riding a Phyrexian Dreadnought into oblivion makes me feel a little warm and fuzzy inside.

(Card Rating: 4.0) This card can be exponentially useful when ON the battlefield for longer than a turn. One major problem for this card is Umezawa's Jitte. Due to the fact that most likely you would be running this card in a Goblin deck, a mainly creature based deck, the turn you have to wait to be able to use the "tap" ability means you will not be able to use at all. I recommend Goblin Chieftain or Goblin Warchief to @ssist Goblin Tinkerer with haste. Goblin Tinkerer shows it's strength in a multiplayer setting by being able to destroy high mana cost artifacts without requiring the mana that Gorilla Shaman needs. I use 2 Goblin Tinkerer's in my casual multiplayer black/red goblin deck. In that deck, I combine him with 2 Goblin Chirurgeon to regenerate Goblin Tinkerer at the expense of a token so he can keep blowing up devastating artifact... (see all)

Hey, not like you're going to be keeping the Tinkerer around for anything else anyway, right?

Chew on that, artifact lands!

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
