There has never been a better time in Standard
contructed for Squee to show up. This versatile
Goblin legend comes back to your hand from the
graveyard during your upkeep, so go crazy nuts
with discard abilities in all your decks, from
your most competitive blue decks with Bonded
Fetch to your casual decks as well. Squee is
truly a Goblin for all seasons. Squee is much
better suited for constructed play than limited,
but he’s good in limited as well. In booster
drafts, you can feel good about rare-drafting
Even if your deck doesn’t have any good discard
tricks you can still use the little guy to chump
block over and over again.
If you cast it, it's a 1/1 blocker that will
come back automatically if it dies. But nobody
casts it. They discard it to an effect, like
Jaya Ballard, Stormbind, Razormane Masticore, or
perhaps even Goblin Lore. This pretty much means
that any card that says you have to discard now
doesn't. This makes a lot of good cards a lot
better-- especially Jaya Ballard.
And I suppose you could block with it.
I remember waiting a long time to see Squee's
card. As one of the original Weatherlight crew,
he was always going to be something interesting,
but I'm not sure anybody expected him to be a
combo piece. The main use of Squee the card is
to discard every turn, say to pay for a cost
like Razormane Masticore's upkeep
(coincidentally also in Tenth!). I've also seen
him in Stax decks in Vintage tournaments. When
you have a way to use him, he can be solid gold,
but in any other deck he doesn't really do
MTG Rules Advisor
This card is never played directly. A 1/1 for 3
with no ability other than recursion isn't good.
You play this with discard outlets, giving you
nothing in the world but +1 to hand size. Pretty
decent for this purpose. This card is solid, not
the best card in the world, but, is a solid card
for certain types of decks.
At the beginning of your upkeep, you may return
Squee, Goblin Nabob
from your graveyard to your hand.
Although it has a pretty good ability, I doubt
it can survive in
Standard. It's not splashable, and in any deck
is focused to use it
will get owned by Extirpate. Madness decks do
have another great discard
fodder though, and it's pretty good when
combined with Rakdos Guildmage.
In casual, abusing this is pretty great. The
cycle all require a discard so this fits right
in. There's less graveyard
hate here too. But I wouldn't say Squee is
immensly powerful here just
because it's a bit slow.
In limited, you do get a blocker that keeps
coming back for more
blocking, but it's rather weak on the offensive
