@protoaddct said in [BBD] Cheering Fanatic:

I mean, is it viable outside of goblins? The fact that it is a gob does not change the fact that its ability is relevant to any deck that can pull it off. It can ramp you into a turn 2 JTMS or Karn for instance.

It seems craptacular as ramp unless you care that it's a Goblin or you abuse the fact that it's a cost reduction and play something many many times. My first thought was something like 2x Top + Prowess, but that fails in a variety of ways.

Earwig squad...

Youre stuck in 2006. Paradox laughs at your shit creature. Show up and donateyour entry at SCGCon if you think Goblins is good.

Tier 395,858,584,383,731,616,375,958

That is for the record, tier 395 septillion and change.

Worth noting, this dodges misstep.

What about this card in a non-Goblin deck, @13NoVa? Tribal Goblins may be non-existent, but any card that wants red and cost reduction, existing or not, may consider this. I don't know what that deck looks like, but I'm willing to brew with this guy to see if I can find one. He's no Foundry Inspector, but Foundry Inspector also doesn't reduce the cost of Dack Fayden (as an example).

@hierarchnoble Do you really need a shitty creature in order to have that effect?

@hierarchnoble I'd say even if you wanted that, Goblin Electromancer is probably better in that said deck. Doesn't reduce Dack's cost but may be able to generate more than 1 mana per turn.

Honestly I want this to be Vintage playable so I can spam naming "Abandon Hope" when I attack with it on MODO but don't want to cast anything afterwards.

Reducing the cost of anything certainly seems a lot better than just reducing the cost of Goblins.

Combos with Sensei's top like Helm of Awakening (infinite storm w/ two or infinite draw w/ future sight). But doesnt give your opponent a boost like Helm.

Outside of combos, functions as a generic mana accelerator for other spells while getting in 2 damage every turn.

Major bluff factor with counterspells

Look forward to trying it.

I'm wondering if Food Chain Goblins really just wants 4x Grapeshot.

I don't know enough about Goblins to know if this card is any good ... but golly, this set has something for everyone and I'm loving it.
