As long as this card remains face-up on the field control of this card cannot switch.

The 1800 ATK for a level 4 is decent, but if you're going to use an 1800 or below ATK monster today, it had better have a killer effect. This one does not. The only cards that it counters are Change of Heart, Creature Swap, and Snatch Steal. The chances that the opponent having them while this is on the field is pretty slim. But for argument's sake, let's say that it does happen. The opponent can simply use the CoH/SS on a different monster, assuming you have one, or he could wait and use it on one of your more powerful monsters. Either way, it's not that great of an effect or beatdown monster. 

I'd give this 2.5/5. If you want to use an 1800 monster, I'd suggest Kycoo over this.

Almost like another version of Gearfried the Iron Knight, although it doesn't have as much combo potential.
 
There really isn't a good reason to run this Monster, even in a Warrior deck. We have much more solid options available. It is better than a lot of the old-school 1800's, which isn't saying much in the current environment.
 
You could possibly side it in versus Control to combat Change of Heart, Snatch Steal, and Creature Swap, but in the long run, it really isn't necessary.
 
Not bad at all in Limited. 1800 ATK is considered very high in this format, play it if you see one. The Effect will generally be useless, but it doesn't matter.

Another 1800 ATK Warrior... It won't stand up to many other beatsticks but it's always nice to know that your opponent can't steal it from you.

If it's ruled that you can select Blindly Loyal Goblin with Creature Swap (even though control won't change), it would make for a very nice combo.

This isn't a very good card. 1800 ATK is so-so and the "Loyalty Effect" is pretty situational. This should only see play in Warrior Decks if at all.

Casual: 2.4
Tourney: 2.4

This card will make warrior decks a lot better. An 1800 warrior, 4 stars, that canít change control. That is beautiul, IMO. Even for a beginnerís deck, this card would be great. Giving a deck card that canít be CoH or Snatch Stole is brilliant. Itís common as well, so can you say itíll be everywhere? I can. Well, everywhere up here anyways. There are barely any good duelists where I live, just beginners. I might actually try my hand at a warrior beatdown in the near future, but not right now. 

I give Blindly Loyal Goblin a 8/10.

Hey, sort of like some of Saddamís bodyguardsÖ

Well, not bad for a common monster. Itís a level 4, tribute free, 1800 attack monster which makes it reasonably good for those who play beatdowns and arenít rich.

But if you have the money, then I would defiantly stay away from this card. Sure, it stops CoH, and Snatch Steal, but you can stop that with Magic Drain. And those are Major Restricted cards anyway. In place of this card, there are better cards such as Gemini Elf or Kycoo the Ghost destroyer, which has the same attack, but better effect.

Not much to say about this card, but if you are running a deck on a budget, then go ahead and pick up a few of these.

Blindly Loyal Goblin- 4.5/10

ah, a common that maybe useful, especially if you're just starting, first of, its 1800, which is decent but not terrific (especially with the new archfiend soldier running around, rare 1900/1500) i like this cards effect though, it renders your opponents snatch steal, change of heart, and creature swap useless, now dont get me wrong, if you're in a you're in a tourney playing this card, and your opponent targets it via change or snatch, and you say "ohh you burned it you burned it" thats just not true, why you ask? the effect states it CANNOT change in the first place, so change or snatch cannot legally target this card, now if the effect read "NEGATE and destroy anyy card that shifts control of this card" then you would have a case where one could "burn" a snatch or change, this is just to clarify as im sure many duelists will try to argue over this.

Tourney-3/5-its a decent card, with a good effect, and respectable stats

Draft-5/5-I use this card in my draft deck..i love the "change of hea..CRAP!"

Artwork-2/5-eh..this guy could look better, maybe you can hook it up with a few GAFs and build a goblin deck, lol, not really, why, that would be like trying to build a celtic guardian deck.

Closing Line-No! I dont care what you say! hes my goblin and its going to stay that way!
