Currently highest rated card in game. One does not simply argue with that.

I'm confident this sole card is why Goblin Chieftain wasn't reprinted.
I wish it was.
So badly.
Ah well, I'll get 3 months to cause beautiful havoc.

A new goblin commander. Interesting. His ability is a bit like that of that rat, what was his name.. Marrow-Gnawer. Slightly worse than the gnawer though.

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

Why? The most common goblin finisher is enabled through the Chieftan and Warchief's haste bonus to goblins. Either the Piledriver swings for the win in a suprise attack or half a dozen smaller goblins swing for the win in a suprise attack. Krenko simply makes that second win con happen more often.

Turn 4, vial in Chieftan
Turn 5, cast a War Marshal or Siege-gang Commander, vial in Krenko, double your goblins, swing

If that doesn't work out, the opponent at least spends a turn dealing with Krenko as he's a huge threat by the time he's out.

If the game is running longer than anticipated and your Piledriver can't get through a larger defence, sometimes you just gotta make lots of smaller goblins.

@VirusVescichetta: If you're playing casual use Goblin King instead of (or in addition to) the Adaptive Automaton. You could also have all your two drops be token producers. Four Mogg War Marshal plus how every many copies of Krenko's Command and Dragon Fodder you have room for.

Considering I broke some face at the Prerelease with this guy, I can confidently give him 4.5/5. Krenko, Goblin Aronsist (I pulled three), Goblin Battle Jester, and Spiked Baloth composed my attack force. I also included Volcanic Strength as a boost for my creatures, most often ending up on the Arsonist.

Krenko happens to ramp well with Goblin Arsonist, Krenko's Command, and Arms Dealer. I imagine they'll serve as the core Goblin cards over the next year. Add in Ring of Valkas to give Krenko haste and make him stronger over the course of the game.

In terms of flavor, this guy comes from Ravnica. Hopefully expect to see more of him when we return to the plane soon.
