Warbreak Trumpeter -


Constructed: 3
Limited: 3
Current Price:


Mostly due to his low costs, this guy ain't too bad. In block, this guy could make mucho Goblin dudes if you see him late game. Early game, he's a Gray Ogre. Seems like a decent deal. Probably not a constructed card, though.

In limited, I'd play him if you're going red. Decent guy, decent cost, and tribal is the name of the game.

Constructed: 2.5
Limited: 3.75

Every once in a while, you get a card that creates goblin tokens. This is a nice take on that ability. You can either have a 1/1 for 1, but in a goblin deck there are many better goblins for that cost. Or late in the game, play this face down for 3, and bust out 6+ 1/1's when you flip him over. Unfortunately, if you're in the late game with a goblin deck, you've already lost. Sorry.
In limited, can be nice to have multiple 1/1 attackers or blockers, but they're 1/1's. Unless you have about equal or more creatures when you flip this, that's not going to mean much.
Constructed: 1.25
Limited: 2

I like this guy more than some people,  I think they underestimate chumping
and getting just a couple 1/1's out of the deal.  Look at him as a symbiotic
elf with potential,  and he'll see more play.  In constructed he's a 1/1 for
1...  with mild come-back potential, depending on the situation.  Not as
good as he looks though.
limited - 3.1
constructed - 3


War Trumpeter just baffles me (which is odd since I picked it). It seems like it should be good, that there is some combo that makes it playable. However, every time I get close the high morph cost shuts it down.


Constructed – Well, here is where it would pay dividends if it could. Since I don’t see how to use it yet I will have to give it a low rating – 1.65


Limited – A little more playable here but not too much – 2.15


PEZ – Even more unforgiving of high costs than most formats – 1.45

This guy's pretty playable... in limited. Because in type two there just
isn't room for him, if those silly goblin bob rush decks actually have
enough mana to morph this guy and use his ability they have already lost.
But like I said, he's pretty cool in Limited.

Constructed 1

Limited 3.5

It's a 1/1 for R (red has no shortage of those, only better) with an overpriced (for constructed) morph ability that can really only be abused with Mirari's Wake.

Limited:  This guy can be freaking amazing.  The ability to make creatures at instant speed is broken.  At worst, playing it as a morph creature and then paying three to split it into two 1/1 blockers.

Constructed: 1

Limited:  4

I would most likely stay away from this creature in constructed.  The only exception might be to play it in a goblin deck to force through a few more creatures.  Otherwise, it doesn't have much place.

In limited, this creature can be a gamebreaker.  The problem though is keeping it alive.  When it's morphed, it's a liability, but the payoffs can be big.

Constructed: 1.5
Limited: 4

     This guy is a decent goblin morph. For five mana he becomes a Symbiotic elf... =/
     He's not too bad though, especially cause he's red and goes with sparksmith. Block, damage on the stack he breeds a little 1/1 for 3. He's pretty good though for a cheap red morph.

In constructed... it has the legions set symbol- need I say more.

Constructed: 1
Limited: 3.0
