Goblin Grappler

Constructed: 3
Limited: 3
Current Price:


Goblin Grappler is  a whatever 1/1 with an added ability.  So he's kind of a Taunting Elf for a single card for one turn (after which he dies a horrible death). I don't see him being included in constructed at all. In limited, he's basically filler if you don't have anything else for the last slot.

Constructed: 1.5
Limited: 1.5

Goblin Grappler
A convenient 1/1 for 1. Unfortunately, though, there are many better creatures at this slot in Type 2. Maybe in block, if you're going tribal, but not otherwise.
In limiteds, the provoke ability can be nice, allowing you to force a less favorable block. I didn't say this was good, but it could be useful.
Constructed: 1.25
Limited: 2
Scott Sager Goblin Grappler

A 1/1 for 1cc that can tie up a blocker or attack those pesky Merfolk Looters.  Probably won't have a place outside of sligh.
 Ltd.:  The perfect way to get rid of your opponents Sparksmiths and Wellwishers.
 Constructed: 3.5
 Limited:  4.0
