this was good in goblin/sligh decks against control or any deck packing few creatures. The red deck burns through whatever they have and voila! Two damage per turn.

I'd rather have jackal pup

also encourages blocks that let your warren instigator and goblin lackey through

Tattermunge Maniac Is Always better But If Your Playing Against Control Or Mill Mightest Well Run All 8

W...w...what? It's pretty much worse than a 1/1 unless they have no creatures. Hell, it's as good as a 0/1, because you can't do damage if they can block it. You'd need to get a bunch down quickly to make any impact.

I think the rating is a bit low, although i admit that it won't help you much if your opponent has any creatures.
(Also there are better one-drop goblins with an attack power of 2, like Tattermunge Maniac, Goblin Guide or even Mogg Cons.cripts/Goblin Cohort)

But this provides some fun with Sheltering Ancient.
...downside is that it requires your opponent to attack or block with a creature.

Wait... did... did Master of Etherium say something intelligent?

This was actually played in Red Deck Wins for quite some time, and it was a good creature. It was unlikely you'd do much attacking with a 2/1 when they had blockers anyway, and that's what burn is for.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
