Not a fan. This card SHOULD be good in limited, a creature with the ability to pump up other creatures is usually good in limited. Unfortunately, everything about Rabble-Rouser makes it a little too hard to cast, too hard to keep in play, and too hard to use effectively. Four mana is too much to pay for a 1/1 that can only pump on offense and can only pump an attacking creature. Hint, if a beatdown card is bad in limited, it's usually MUCH WORSE for constructed. Rabble-Rouser is a good example. Rabble-Rouser is about the 30th best red card in Guildpact. I think there are thirty red cards in Guildpact.

I'm definitely not a fan of this card. It cost too much to cast. It's a small creature otherwise. And to use it's ability, I have to make sure I punch someone through for damage first. I'd just stay away from this card altogether if I were you.

Constructed: 1
Casual: 1.5
Limited: 1.5

Ick. Way overcosted, and it's just too hard in the format to pump this guy up to make a difference. It's a bad card....welcome it to the toilet paper roll.

Four mana for a 1/1 Goblin is very rarely worth playing. The Bloodthirst helps a bit. The attacking creatures bonus helps a great deal more, especially if you can get a Sunforger on it. Not worth the mana in constructed; in Limited it's a must-have if you got a Sunforger, playable if you have a Grifter's Blade and an Oathsworn Giant(so it can attack and give it's bonus to itself), and a late pick otherwise. In casual, it wants to share a deck with a big swarm of little attackers, like Goblins.

Constructed- 1.7
Casual- 3.8
Limited-2.2

Rabble Rouser, what an interesting card. This has allot of potential in alot of old school decks and some new school decks. Even if this card dose NOT get equipped it still has the potential do alot of damage. As with most of the RAV cards this can be easily splashed into a deck without much work thus making it versatile. If you pull of the bloodthirst its a good start to making an extremely strong attack force, I don’t know many cards that can power up all attacking creatures by 1 for R, or even better 2 for R, the fact that it is 3R is its only downfall, if it had only been 2R it would be very broken and found its way into more decks, in the RAV area of the game this will find play, in other (older) tourneys it will be harder to find a spot in my opinion although I wish it could see play. In your FNM this card could be quite fun to rip out on your friends as a game winner but i think it will be saved as just that in a deck, the big gun game winner slot, most all decks have that spot.

OVERALL: 6.5/10

CONSTRUCTED: 3.0/5
CASUAL: 4.0/5
LIMITED: 3.25/5
