Quote from Bearscape »I was 100% on the Frogtosser Banneret train at the start but I'm now convinced the card is too weak. The acceleration is great, but individually it is rarely worth a card, needing multiple Ringleaders to be worth the investment.
Quote from MagicYio »And to answer the last part of your response: the purpose of Piledriver is to race your opponent.
Quote from MagicYio »I would strongly disagree, and say that playing 3 Piledrivers is not a bad option at all.
The protection from blue is very relevant, making you able to race decks like Dredge (Amalgam and Narcomoeba can't block), Urza Thopter (the thopters are blue), UR Phoenix (Thing in the Ice), Storm (both creatures can't block), and makes your UW Control matchup even better. It's pretty strong against any combo deck, which is one of Goblins' weaknesses. Also doesn't die to Plague Engineer, which is an important upside as well.
They have to be blocked most of the time, which makes them act like a removal spell which is also a creature. It's completely nuts with Warchief.
Edit: I would still play a Tarfire as well, pretty good Matron target if you need it and decent extra removal.
Quote from Decadent Command »
I was just curious what do you guys think of tectonic reformation? Is it worth a card? Or do you think just having 3 cycling lands in our deck being churned through with Life of the loam will be enough card draw? I was thinking about playing it as a 2 of in the deck until I get a feeling for whether it's good or not. I mean it even cycles so if we do have enough cycle lands in our hand we can always get rid of it if we want to.
