    Call me selfish but I was hoping for a new world. Fingers crossed the Fall set is somewhere we haven't seen before.

    If you still need another judge Bravelion, I can put my name into the hat.

    posted a message on [Goblins] Lots of them!
    Quote from GreenDzin »
    Goblin Opportunist R
    Common
    Creature - Goblin
    Haste
    Whenever ~ attacks and isn’t blocked, it gets +1/+0 until end of turn.
    "Food, treasures, fun... If only that puny soldier looked away..."
    [1/1]


    I wouldn't put this at common but I think it's probably just about printable by today's standards. Mainly because Goblin Guide still plays above it though.

    Goblin Warmonger RRR
    M.Rare
    Creature - Goblin
    Whenever Goblin Warmonger attacks, it gets +1/+0 until end of turn for each other attacking Goblin.
    1RRR: Other attacking Goblins you control get +X/+0 until end of turn, where X is half the Goblin Warmonger’s power rounded down.
    [1/2]

    A sort of finisher for goblin decks since Goblin Piledriver and Clickslither are out of Modern. Restricted by tribe, rarity, triple R cost and has no built-in haste or protection.


    I think I could have seen a spot for this six months ago. Goblin Rabblemaster is essentially offering the same but churns out goblins instead of pumping (which is probably slightly more useful for goblin decks).

    Demolition Squad 1RR
    M.Rare
    Creature - Goblin
    Whenever Demolition Squad deals combat damage to a player, put a demolition counter on target land that player controls.
    1RR,T: Destroy all lands with demolition counters on them.
    [1/3]


    I actually love the flavour, though it does always depend on a playgroups definition of fun whether land destruction is accepted.

    Goblin Battle Drums 2
    Rare
    Artifact - Goblin
    Attacking Goblins you control get +1/+0.
    2, Sacrifice ~: Regenerate all Goblin creatures you control.
    “Drum is beating - time for hitting. Drum is cracking - hide your neck in.”


    I don't personally like the idea of regeneration for goblins, but I'm sure some people might.

    Goblin Raid RR
    Rare
    Instant - Goblin
    Put two 1/1 red Goblin creature tokens onto the battlefield.
    You may chose an unblocked Goblin you control. If you do, put those tokens tapped and attacking the defending player.


    I'm not entirely clear on the second part of your card. Is this just a way of saying that if your in combat and control an unblocked goblin then you may have tapped and attacking. Is this the same playing that the unblocked goblin is attacking? There's probably a better way to say this.

    Spleen, the Commander 1RR
    M.Rare
    Planswalker - Spleen
    [+1]: Until end of turn, Spleen, the Commander becomes a legendary
    2/2 red Goblin creature with indestructible, double strike and haste.
    [-1]: Put two 1/1 red Goblin creature tokens onto the battlefield.
    [-1]: Creatures you control get +1/+0 and gain haste until end of turn.
    [2]


    The first ability is going to be too strong for 1RR. Perhaps up the mana cost a bit.

    Spleen Bushwhacker 1RR
    M.Rare
    Planswalker - Spleen
    [+1]: Target creature can’t be blocked this turn.
    [+1]: Sacrifice a creature: Spleen deals damage equal to the sacrificed
    creature’s power to target creature or player.
    [-5]: You get an emblem with “Whenever a creature you control deals combat damage to
    a player, you may destroy target artifact, enchantment or land that player controls.”
    [2]


    The first ability isn't really red. Perhaps you change it to intimidate?
    Second ability should be written along the lines of "You may sacrifice a creature. If you do..."
    The third ability shouldn't destroy enchantments.

    Another iterattion of the same walker representing him as a diversant. First ability may be used with Goblin Lackey or the likes or to deliver the last bits of damage. Second ability is Fling which is kinda flavorful if you think about goblin suicide bombing. Ultimate is a game winning one that turns all of your creatures into master diversants that break stuff whenever they get a chance. It is balanced out by the fact that usually Goblins(the tribe he is supposed to support) are squishy and easy to get rid off.

    posted a message on [[MTGO]] "Going Infinite" will not be possible on MTGO in the future.
    Quote from Jeremy_Lin »
    LOL at some of these replies.

    How many people are streaming/recording videos on V4, aside from the "Wide Beta Lowlight?" Not many at all. Anywhere V4 is discussed, the opinions are overall negative.

    The speculation in my original post is based on the EV slashing of events (Momir/Pauper, 4-pack sealed) and the straight price increases. (redemption fee increase, prerelease entry objects) Even if the MTGO store is the only place where tickets are originated, grinders (or anyone not terrible at constructed DEs) still don't need to spend any money there. A tournament token guarantees the best grinders will need to pay to play, even if they're just selling tickets to vendors to buy the tournament tokens. Wizards gets even more vig. (and they took our Momir-Vig!)

    The V3 shutdown cluster**** is the perfect time to implement the tournament token. Do some of you believe a bunch of guys with boxcutters alone made the Twin Towers turn to dust too?


    So the person who beleived WotC crashed their own client last November is accusing everyone else of wacked out conspiracy theoriests. Rolleyes

    Please next time your start a thread with no actual basis, can you put it in the baseless speculation subforum.

    As long as event tickets are needed for entry WotC won't be losing money off people going infinite. Your tournament token idea is essentially what event tickets are already (unless you've found a bug that let's you produce event tickets without going to the store). This whole post is fairly ridiculous.

    Who is this Droombringer guy? :p

    holder


    It appears I have misspelt your name. The way I see it we have two options:

    1) I could simply edit the OP.
    2) You could formally request a name change here and therefore I would have been right all along. Grin

    If it helps with the decision making process I always thought Droombringer was a darling name.
