Boggart Mob

Since Goblin decks should have no trouble finding a Goblin to champion, this is essentially a 5/5 for four mana. Yes, it has a drawback, but large undercosted black creatures are always dragging along drawbacks. Remeber Juzam Djinn?
So is this the new Juzam? No, because you can't use it unless you've got Goblins. But its ability does give you Goblin tokens back, so its completely worth it.

Constructed- 4
Casual- 4.5
Limited- 4

Friday - Boggart Mob

This card has a lot of potential as its a 4cc for a 5/5 with an ability to make a huge army for you. Now the only problem that it is a 4cc, in a goblin deck you are trying to rush in with quick damage. At most this guy is a 2 of in some B/R goblin builds.

Boggart Mob

Since Goblins tend to be numerous and like to attack, Boggart Mob can potentially get out of hand very quickly. If you're playing against this card, be glad it only counts combat damage. Can you imagine how ridiculous it would have been if you could trigger it with Siege-Gang Commander? The problem, like with all the champion cards, is that you need another creature and they're in an awkward place on the mana curve for aggressive decks. Boggart Mob probably won't see play at the highest level of Standard competition, but it is a very fun card that will occasionally just blow out a game.

Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 4/5

Boggart Mob

I personally like this card because it can create a giant mob of goblins really quickly. It's also a nice combo with Boggart Shenanigans as you have a pseudo-invincible Goblin token that can serve as an infinite sacrifice fodder.

It's also quite large compared to the other Goblins.

Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 3.5/5
Limited: 3/5
