A red Tim. If your opponent has a lot of
one-toughness creatures out, then
this is good. Otherwise, you've paid 3 for a 1/1.
He will randomly untap at
times, but something like this is not something a
red mage would consider a
viable strategy. If I was going to play a red Tim
in the new type 2, I'd pay
one more to be able to use it once per turn.
In limited, this is not the worst card, as it will
keep anything with one
toughness off their side of the board. And removal
is hard to come by, so if
I were playing red, I'd play this guy. This guy
alone wouldn't make me want
to play red though.
Well if they made a goblin version of Tim you
would probably play it in a red deck...right?
Well, what if it Sucked ? You would say "I
guess I wouldn't play it, Godfather" and
the Godfather would smile at you and say
"That's right, you're a good boy now go
throw that crappy card in the trash and here's
twenty dollahs for some candy." Then
everyone would be happy because cards that don't
untap unless X event happens generally suck
unless you have some tech that works around the
condition. Here you don't.
Limited 1.5 cus he might be a chump blocker.
Although direct damage is very strong in limited,
wouldn't play this guy because you may only get to
untap him a few times. Creatures that die in
to thegraveyard at the same time(ignoring first
strike), so you only get to untap the goblin
sharpshooter once - at least this is my
of the rules (I'm sure someone will correct me if
wrong). A 2.5 in limited.
Now in constructed you can try to get round his
disadvantage eg. burning your opponents creatures
sent them to the gravyard or using another card to
untap the sharpshooter. When you compare him to
prodigal sorcerer though, you see the sharpshooter
probably isn't that good except against a weenie
A 3 in constucted.
