7 mana for a goblin deck? Why? Goblin decks are supposed to be fast aggro. It will just never fit. The only reason to ever use this is the starting ability and it's not worth running just for that.

Mass Polymorph. Three of these wins you the game, plus he gives you a token.

Do I even need to mention its use in token spam decks? Oh, it seems I already have.

Eldrazi Spawn anyone? I've seen decks throw out dozens of spawn per turn. Make these things into 1/1's and you'll easily overpower someone. Do something like R/G with things for trample (Overwhelming Stampede comes to mind quickly.) The spawn would also speed up the mana curve exponentially.

i have a WUBRG deck using the chancellors as part of the strategy. in 3 turnes i had 68 creatures on the battlefield using 2 of these. do not under estimate ANY of the chancellors. if used correctly, they can each turn the tides of the game.

Turn 1 Balefire Dragon, Furyborn Hellkite, Inferno Titan, Chancellor of the Forge etc....

1. Mountain, reveal 2 Chancellor of the Forge, cast Infernal Plunge, Infernal Plunge, Geosurge, cast Balefire Dragon, Inferno Titan etc....
or if you revealed only 1 Chancellor, cast Goblin Arsonist, sac it for Infernal Plunge, give 1 damage to opponent, hard cast Furyborn Hellkite (12/12).. Turn 2, Assault Strobe.. GG.. Fun times.. =)))

Turn 1 - This guy to pop out a token. Mountain. Ornithopter. Kudoltha Rebirth. Swing for 1.
Turn 2 - Mountain. Skirk Prospecter. Brightstone Ritual for 5 mana. Sac 2 goblins to skirk prospecter and cast Chancellor of the Forge, bringing in 4 goblins. Swing for 12.

I'm calling it now: Faithless Looting is going to break this cards playability wide open.

You're not allowed to play this with Doubling Season and Galepowder Mage. I know you were wondering. Sorry.

@A3Kitsune, you'd be thinking of Serum Powder, I'm pretty sure.

Unfortunately, that lets you take a pseudo mulligan when you could take a normal mulligan. Your "opening hand", however, is the cards you end up with AFTER you have mulliganed/not. So you cannot use this and Serum Powder together like you have said. Similarly with Leylines, sadly.
