What's your favorite Goblin of all time, and why?

Mons Johnson

Mons Johnson: Tough question, because there are so many good Goblins. And by good Goblins, I mean powerful ones! Not so much the ones that are nice and comforting ....

Once, playing in an Extended tournament, my opening hand consisted of a single Goblin card and six Mountains. Needless to say, I won that game ... because the Goblin was Goblin Recruiter!

I am a big fan of Goblin Recruiter. It won me more games than any other Goblin, because, well what can possibly be better than putting all your Goblins on the top of your deck?!

On the other hand I really like Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician. He's the complete package. He's reasonably powerful, the art is superb, and the flavor text still amuses me to this day. So, we'll call it a draw. :)
