An Incinerate on a stick? Yes please. Any Goblin or Shaman deck, or really any red deck with a decent number of Goblins or Shamans, can use this. Championing is no price at all for a creature that can systematically wipe out nearly all your opponent's creatures.

Constructed- 3.5
Casual- 4
Limited- 4

I like this guy's art, but I don't really like him for constructed play. The champion mechanic isn't that good in constructed, and your average goblin deck is probably winning by the time it can play him. However, he's a bona fide limited bomb. Changelings, Runed Stalactite, and the Velis Vel spells help get him into play, and once he's in, he can remove a surprising number of creatures.

Constructed: 1/5
Casual: 2/5
Limited: 4/5

I like this one. In block goblins, this is sure to be included. The fact that it hits both creatures and players is what makes it great. I also see a lot of potential in cards with activated abilities with the other morningtide artifact that allows creatures with activated abilities to use those abilities with haste. Beyond block, this won't see much play.

Constructed: 3 for block, 2 otherwise
Casual: 3
Limited: 3
