This will be in the same standard environment as Goblin Chieftan for 3 months. Some one, make this happen.

On a side note, this has a slim chance of being decent in Legacy Goblins.

I was totally shocked when I saw this card spoiled. I immediately ordered 4 of them and still can't believe it hasn't budged from $2. It combos well with Fervor, but it would have been even better if Goblin Chieftan got a reprint. Oh, well...I look forward to abusing this card to the best of my abilities.

easy to go infinite, in EDH especially, Thornbite Staff and a sac outlet like Spawning Pit or ride the Skull Clamp train. Mono red IS now viable and as an all Goblin deck!

I like this guy mostly because he's cumulative. You play him, (and because he forms a nice mana curve with Fervor) tap him, you've got a token, even if he's the only one in play. Next turn, tap, you get two more because there are two goblins in play. Turn three, tap him, you've got four more. and so on. and so on. And it works well with Arms Dealer, so I'm lucky I pulled a second one from one of the packs when I bought his deck. Pity was, the deck itself pretty much sucked. I mean, why put a guy like this in a deck that's anything but Goblin tribal? Also, in Goblin tribal, use this with cards like Warbreak Trumpeter and Goblin Offensive. Power them up using mana produced by Battle Hymn or Brightstone Ritual.
Also, he's a walking Goblin Promenade. How do you argue with that? Also, he works well with Kyren Negotiations, ... (see all)

Use Skirk Prospector and Siege-Gang Commander to get this bad boy out on turn 3. You attack with 2 goblins. Next turn, you're tossing 6 tokens at them. Unless they kill him, this card's gonna singlehandedly win you the game.

Does anyone else think this shouldv'e been red''s Mythic in Magic 2013, instead of Thundermaw Hellkite?

Highest rated of the whole cycle, and he deserves every star.

Goes very well indeed with Parallel Lives and Chancellor of the Forge, and in-set with Fervor.

This card inspires me to make a mono red deck, and the last one I made was when I first started playing magic.

Awesome name and awesome flavor. 5/5.
