Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
Reckless One is a
decent card, but a bit overcosted for
constructed. If you are playing a Goblin deck,
you want fast, low costed creatures, and
Reckless one doesn't fit that bill, though it
may be the largest Goblin you'll have on the
board. ;) He'd be better in the late game, but
in the early game, you really don't want to see
a 4 CC creature sitting in your hand when your
In limited, it's
cool if you happen to be playing a ton
of Goblins. It's even better if your opponent
has some Goblins too.
Constructed - 2
Limited - 3.5
Monday - Reckless One
This week we're looking at red cards from
Onslaught. And here we have
another avatar. Only this one isn't half bad.
Goblins are going to be widely
used in Onslaught sealed, and I've actually seen
quite a few used in Type 2.
There are some great goblins in this set, and a
theme deck could revolve
The fact that it has haste makes it better. Heck,
by the time you have
enough mana to play this (4th turn), you honestly
could have a 4/4 or 5/5
with haste. That's not bad at all.
Limited: This is probably even
worse than the wizard "X/X"er since goblins die
easier and are less abundant in limited than all
other creature types. Especially sparksmith, seems
hes a pretty rare weenie to get. I have never seen
this thing get bigger than 3/3, and his friends
never help him besdies increase his attack power.
All in all, hes a 15th pick.
sucker is not a constructed card. :)
Sealed: The fact that goblins are the rarest
creature type, and they die easy, and you don't
get a lot of a creature type in sealed often...
just say no to the "Reckless One"
Now we come to the
One for goblins. The problem with this guy is,
he costs 4 to play, and is totally dependant on
other goblins being in play to be any good. Most
red decks these dayd won't want to go that high
for an effect that really doesn't fit red. I
don't see this getting any play
Limited: Even if you
get 4+ goblins, I don't know if I play this. I
probably would, but it just doesn't seem strong
enough for me.
