Weirding Shaman

It's a 2/1 for two with an ability that lets you sacrifice Goblins to make more Goblins. What with all the sacrificing and resurrecting and leaves-play triggers in the Goblin tribe, this'll fit right into the great combo machine. It's sacrifice outlet and sacrifice fodder production all in one. It's also interesting that it's a Shaman that makes Rogues.

Constructed- 2.5
Casual- 3
Limited- 3.5

Weirding Shaman

If Goblins are good at anything, they're good at swarming, and Weirding Shaman is one of the best at doing that. With Mogg War Marshal still around, it may not find space in constructed decks for a while, but don't underestimate it.

Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 3/5

Weirding Shaman

This is a cheap splashable goblin. If you have mana open when goblins start to go to the yard, then this guy is great. However, most goblin decks are dealt with by cards like wrath, damnation, and pyroclasm. This will not help against that. The fact that the tokens you get are rougues is intriguing and thus I think this is best put in a rougue deck rather than a goblin deck. As a 2/1 for 2 this has some aggro potential.

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