Pojo's Magic The Gathering
Card of the Day
Charbelcher - I was talking to Scott about this
card, and I think he is right in his assessment
that this card could be a finisher for a goblin
deck. It can either wipe out an annoying
creature, or you can use it to finish off your
opponent. Since Goblin is weenie by nature, it's
usually running light on land, so you'll probably
reveal a good deal of non-land cards before you
hit your mountain, which will double your damage.
You can use sac lands in your deck to thin out
extra land and really whack them hard.
Sounds like fun!
In limited, it's not
as reliable, but ANY decent removal is worth
playing in limited, so you play it no matter what
color you're going. Plus, this is REUSABLE
removal, which makes it much more amazing!
way... we could use your help!! We just posted our
New Website for
Shuffle & Cut Games, and it would be great if
some of you could drop in and give it a test run.

BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURP. Sorry - had to get
that joke out of the way. :)
concept. Seems like it would only go into a deck
with mountains in it, and a deck with a way to
stack the deck. That makes me think of one card
- Goblin Recruiter. And that deck already has
cards that are better than this, so I don't
think this will have a place in any serious
deck. Still, seems like fun for a casual deck,
In limited, it's a
repeatable deamage source that can hit creatures
or players. Erratic Explosion was good in
Onslaught block limited, and this will be about
as good in Mirrodin block limited.
Unfortunately, though, it's colorless, so any
color can use it. So I think this will go pretty
high in draft, and I wouldn't hesitate to use
this in sealed.
A very very dangerous card, potentially
overpowered. And yes, everyone's
already thought of the mana severance combo.
Re-usable creature kill in
limited (and constructed, to a lesser extent), and
a very viable win
condition in both.
Goblin Charbelcher is
really odd card. Still, there is some real abuse
potential to this card in a well designed deck and
removal is just good.
