It's a Gobin Shock. Does anyone even play Shock?
I think they just play Rift Bolt or Incinerate--
2 damage doesn't look too attractive. Does the
Goblin subtype matter? I suppose in Limited or in
a very dedicated archetype it would. Also
Tarmogoyf likes it, but I think I'd rather just
use Blades of Velis Vel to do all the same
things this does, and get more damage.
Some people I know have taken to calling this
card "Tarmofire" because of the spectacular
stuff that happens when you combine this with
Tarmogoyf. It's basically better than Shock in a
deck with Tarmogoyf, Goblin Matron, or Lorwyn's
goblin recursion cards. Get used to seeing this
card in constructed events. Tarfire is easily
one of the best cards for Lorwyn limited.
There's not much removal or direct damage in
that environment, and removal that you can find
with a Boggart Harbinger or recur with Warren
Pilferers is ridiculous good.

It's a Shock, but it gives +2/+2 to Tarmagoyf
instead. Tarmagoyf is still really good.
It also kills a lot of those weaker creatures
which wrecks a lot of the infrastructure which
tribal decks often need, and that's just what
Constructed: 4/5, maybe I'm a bit crazy here
card is Tarfire from Lorwyn. It looks like
Shock, except that it counts as a Goblin thanks
to being a Tribal Instant. This means you can
use a number of search options to find it,
notably Boggart Harbringer, but there are older
cards that can find it such as Goblin Matron and
Mogg Catcher. Cheap creature removal that is
this easy to pull out of your deck is rare
especially for red, but this card will be a
staple in any deck running Goblins especially Lorwyn
Goblins. By the way, it can also be returned to
your hand from the graveyard as well with
various reanimate Goblin cards.
Limited:5/5(Pull this and Boggart Harbringer
for easy to find creature kill)
Constructed:5/5(A good Goblin deck with the
Lorwyn animation options can keep the damage
coming again and again)
