Lifeline deck?

With the new Oracle wording, multiple creatures entering play simultaneously causes him to deal damage equal to 3 times the no. of creatures entering play.

@Khavrion: Mogg Bombers actually only targets players, so from that perspective, at least, Lifeline is all upside for these guys!

I love goblins, and I used to play with these guys in one of my old goblin decks. It's really a hit-or-miss card; if you're playing a matchup where your opponent drops all their creatures down early, or if it takes them a long time to drop anything, then he's larger than the average goblin and might get in a few swings before dying. It's sort of a "bonus", of sorts, that he is on the high end of goblin mana costs - he'll generally come out after you've already had a chance to play your cheaper dudes.

Of course, at his worst, he is a pretty inefficient burn spell. Getting in even one swing with him makes him worth it, IMO, but there's no guarantee that you'll ever get such a swing. I really, REALLY like the Lifeline suggestion, Kryptnyt! That would certainly be worth some giggles, especially in multiplayer (though it might just... (see all)

Awesome artwork and quite big for a goblin, but unfortunately rather useless.

Lifeline might keep this guy alive, but wouldn't it also keep alive his target?

I always thought this card was just pretty mediocre, but after glancing at the rulings, I see now that it could actually be quite the killer! Toss him out with Krenko, Mob Boss and deal anywhere from 9 to 21 damage in a single turn!

Rite of replication scares me in that respect, a kicked rite targeting this guys makes you deal 75 damage to players D:
5 triggers from this dude
4 triggers from each other dude coming into play
25 triggers total :D

I should point out that you get multiple triggers (that each successfully resolve) upon multiple things entering play.

Then I should point out Siege-Gang Commander curves out of this guy and that you can stack the triggers to be an instant 12 damage to your opponent. (Siege's ETB and this guy's trigger go on the stack at the same time, so put siege's above it so you can get 3 more ETB triggers.)

The previous comments here mention Krenko and other token producers, so I see a few others are getting the idea :D; Krenko being my favorite because you can managably do that the same turn you drop this guy.
