Another 5 drop but only 1 team alright. Well heís not a bad drop itís either him or Venom or five unless you have another team. His size is kind of deceptive though. He looks like a big drop 10 attack. But if you use his ability heís only an 8/8 which pretty small for a 5 drop. What if Hawkeye, Clint Barton was a 5/5 4 drop that still had the stun ability? If your playing against a rush deck with a lot of under drops you donít notice it but curve will still be hard to take down with a pump. Plus you canít activate to use it you have to be attacking.

Overall heís not a bad card size, flight, and range make him playable he could be worse but what do you expect from a common?

Constructed and sealed 3/5 mainly because there are only three 5 drop Spider Friends characters.

What a coincidence; I got my ass handed to me this weekend in a City Championship by a guy running a Kent Farm deck, and today's card is the card that could have won me the matchup. Off curve and weenie rush decks have always been popular. Faces of Evil has had the most success, although Blackbriar Thorn, Surveillance Pawn, and Deadshot are also annoying little boogers. That's where Green Goblin comes in.

He's a 10/8 with Flight and Range, but while he's attacking, you can pay 2 ATK (turning him into an 8/8 for the turn) and stun up to 2 resource points worth of characters, as long as they aren't the character being attacked. Combine it with Fatality on 4, and it's like a mini Flame Trap/Total Anarchy. Syndicate Rush is going to be all over the place in Modern, and although that deck can win on 4, if you can use Green Goblin on 5, you can take away a lot of damage early.

Not great in a draft unless you need his stats, since a lot of folks just miss 1 and or 2 and don't worry about it. There's not a lot of weenie hate in the current Modern format, so any little bit is worth having.

Rating: 3/5
