My favorite of the chancellors. In Commander he can lead to some absurd board states in swarm decks. Try living the dream of having Doubling Season, Parallel Lives, and Garruk, Primal Hunter in play. Play Saproling Symbiosis before your turn, get Garruk to make a whole lot of wurms, and then drop the Chancellor. The hasted goblins alone should be enough to take out your opponent (or opponents).

Amusingly enjoyable with Followed Footsteps

Works well with Geosurge. 4 cost, bring out the big boy. Lay waste to everything else.

I feel like this card needs to be errata'd to Goblin Giant, why? because he would work awesome with any given Goblin tribal.

I have a birthing pod token deck (W/G) with this...
The main chain goes something like this... Doomed Traveler -> Viridian Emissary -> Roc Egg -> Mausoleum Guard -> Geist-honored monk -> Wurmcoil -> This guy

Usually somewhere along the line i get a parallel lives out, and have amassed a decent horde of creatures, then this guy hits, and shifts the board firmly in my favor.

If I have the chance, it's really fun to add insult to injury by poding him to Craterhoof Behemoth.

Also, I know Elesh-Norn is a better sevenspot for this deck... Just can't get one.

Personally, i find this chancellor the best. you could make an argument towards any of them, sure, but in a super fast aggro red deck, having the ability to just get in that 1 extra point of damage essentially for free is a good thing. then, if youre lagging behind and your poor krenko needs to get a foothold on the board to start masssing goblins, throw down this fella to make stuff happen. plus he looks freiking awesome. and dont even get me started on wild guess and faithless looting :P

Wicked synergy with Battle Hymn.

@Lifegainwithbite: Because red has no sort of mana acceleration like Geosurge or Battle Hymn.

I used to have this in a "RDW" goblin deck back when he was Standard-legal. Good times. Goblin Guide and a hasty token on turn 1 is rather sweet. Follow that up with Shrine of Burning Rage or a battlecry goblin on T2 and the Goblin Lord T3. T4 I was casting Geosurge ino this guy :)
