Hey hey, a legendary goblin! Here we see Slobad performing some much-needed repairs on Bosh, Iron Golem (see here for a close-up face comparison).

In the story, he gave up his chance to ascend to Planeswalker status in order to bring Glissa Sunseeker back to life. I was really disappointed when I read the lore for the Scars block and WotC Creative only gave cursory mention of his demise, saying that he "fell" to other attacking goblins to cover Glissa's retreat back into the core.

As for the card itself, it's an interesting ability. This was the first set to feature indestructibility, and until fairly recently there weren't a lot of other ways to grant it to individual permanents. You can use him in an artifact-heavy deck to cut your Shatterstorm losses in half, for a fraction of the cost of Darksteel Forge - and this is only the tip of the iceber... (see all)

I find his flavor text incredibly lulzy. Artifacts are now the domain of Esper predominantly, but if you're gonna be running red with some Esper colors, grab Mishra, Artificer Prodigy. He's in 2 of the 3 colors of Esper, and his remaining color is the same as Slobad's

Wow, he has the same P/T and mana cost as Goblin Tinkerer. That can't have been unintentional.

He dies in the storyline after he and Glissa defeat Memnarch. :(

He probably doesn't laugh because you called his people morons, you hateful bigot.

effectively, you can redirect any destruction effect to another artifact you control. not that bad for a 1/2 goblin for 1R.

Makes every one of your artifacts into an impromptu Welding Jar, just in case you wanted to pay more than 0 to get that Welding Jar effect. Unless you're running some weirdly fragile and convoluted artifact interaction deck, you should probably just mainboard the Jars.
