This card is awesome, Karn EDH finisher, and definitely as good as it's older brother (Rocket Launcher) in most situations. I give it a 4, because it should only cost 3, but the activations are relatively cheap (though with infinite mana who cares if it's cheap?!?)

I love reading comments from people who have opinions about things they don't even understand.

This gem is particularly irritating:
damage isn't on the stack anymore.

utterly useless now.

Obviously you don't understand what that even means. The only change m10 brought was combat damage off the stack. Activations still use the stack, you can still activate this card infinite times and do infinite damage, just as before. Nothing changed with this card, it works exactly the way it did before.

"Aww... wth, this is worst than rocket laucher! Give it another errata of being a goblin type and we'll talk."

I feel pretty certain that you don't know how this card works. It's not a good card, but if you're actually considering playing Rocket Launcher, I don't think you understand that you can activate the ability more than once. Goblin Cannon is sacrificed upon resolution of it's ability, not as a cost to play the ability. Therefore, you can place as many instances of it on the stack as you can pay for before it blows up.

The new Rocket Launcher!

It's like a Fireball but broken up into mini-Fireballs. Even if someone could counter activated abilities they would have to counter each point of damage seperately, good luck with that! Best goblin direct-damage since Goblin Grenade.

Combat damage doesn't use the stack, other damage does.

The way this card works is you activate it as many times as you can pay for before any of the activations resolve. When the first one resolves the Cannon is sacrificed. But the other activations are still on the stack and deal their damage. Since goblin cannon is no longer in play, the sacrifice part is ignored on all the other activations.

This is a pretty classless finish for an inf mana deck: prime whatever hacked out combo you want for inf mana and then throw this out and machine gun down all of your opponents. Fun stuff. Just watch those counterspells.

@spacemunky: Yeah, they'd have to do something crazy like end the turn!

This card is just really really disgusting. Everytime I have to look at it, it makes me want to spit.
