CCDD 110117—Goblin Cheerleader & Goblin Cheer Captain

Cool Card Design of the Day
11/1/2017 - Here's a wildly simplified Goblin Bushwhacker.

And here's a tweak to the above that's worse on its own but better for swarming.

Technically, these are the same design, just developed for different priorities. I like how the former is a better Goblin Piker and how casually useful it is. I like how the latter is more aesthetically pleasing and rewards synergistic play more.


  1. Goblin Pep Squad 2R
    Creature - Goblin
    When CARDNAME enters the battlefield, you may have any number of creatures you control get +2/+2 until end of turn. Sacrifice those creatures at the end of the turn.
    Pep, as it turns out, is made from skizzik blood and ground flash beetle carcass.

    The cutest version of this doesn't have Haste itself, but that would be awful on a common for new players. Likely this doesn't get to be a common in any case, though.

    1. Nice. +2/+0 is better, since they're dying anyhow.

    2. This is actually Goblin Pyromancer, the OG Bushwhacker

    3. Except, of course not tribal. Also, I think that hitting all creatures is more red than only hitting some

    4. I did a quick scour for that but, would you believe they keep having printed Magic cards? Alas.

  2. I really like this effect as a tribal payoff

    2RR Goblin Crazedancer

    Creature Goblin Shaman

    When ~ enters the battlefield goblins you control get +X/+0 where X is the number of goblins you control


    Pitchfork Protestor RW

    Creature human

    when Pitchfork Protestor enters the battlefield human you control get +2/+1 until end of turn
