I mostly agree with Jans comments except for the one about lackey being good in casual play. Lackey is probably the best goblin for competitive play. Period. Granted Instigator has the ability to either kill a 1/1 or drop 2 gobbos instead of one that lackey does not, however the 2 casting cost (without haste) is a big deal. You need speed in a goblin deck, that's what they're all about. If you don't open your hand with a Goblin Lackey or an Aether Vial it's time to mulligan anyways. If you're concerned about not being able to swing in with lackey because your opponent drops a first turn defender then I recommend one or more of the following cards: Pyrokinesis- Amazing in gobbo since it's free and can kill up to a 4 defense creature, Gempalm Incinerator- Gets cycled turn 2 for 1 damage (with lackey on the board) which generally will correspond with the toughness of the creature your opponent drops to block, Stingscourger- Not an option I use a lot, but it bounces anything without some form of evasion back to your opponents hand leaving you free to swing in with lackey.

This card's price speaks for itself. Can you think of another not-so-old uncommon that's worth nearly 10 bucks?

A Goblin card with 1/1 for one with an ability is relatively efficient. When you add this ability, suddenly, it becomes insane. The ability to get an extra Goblin out on turn two is not an ability to sniff at. When that Goblin is a Siege-Gang Commander or a Piledriver, that extra mana you've saved can be used to play another Piledriver or Mogg Fanatic to attack next turn. Being banned in the relevant format for tournaments ever since it was used successfully was a blow to it and as it is no longer in Extended, playing it in Legacy is probably the only place where it can be effectively used. However, looking at recent Grand Prix results in Philadelphia, Goblin Lackey must have been an integral card used. An overpowered card for a low cost.

One of the best 1/1 Goblins for a R. With burn to clear the way allows you to put lots of pressure on your opponent. Remember the goal here is to win by the 5th or 6th turn. Put out Goblin Marshal use Goblin Grenade, and 3rd turn Trumpeting Blast and it is all over. Far superior than Moggcatcher in every way.

No person true to their Goblin deck should play Moggcatcher. For starters, it's too slow in use, and secondly, it's NOT a goblin, meaning it won't get any benefits from Goblin King, Goblin Warchief and the like.Goblin Lackey is a game breaking card when it's best. At worst, it's probably worse than Raging Goblin. If you start by playing the Lackey, and your opponent doesn't cast a creature or kill it with a spell, the game quickly swings in your favor. You can get a Siege Gang Commander onto the battlefield on your second turn without paying for it. On the other hand, the low toughness of the Lackey means, that it's an easy kill. If you play Goblin Lackey on your first turn, and your opponent shoots it with a Lightning Bolt on his second, you might' as well have played a Raging Goblin. At the very least, that would have gotten in for 1 point of damage before it died.Another card worth mentioning here is the Warren Instigator. It's the Goblin Lackey's big, double striking brother, Warren Instigator. The Double Strike ability practically makies him twice as effective whenever he hits a player. Another great thing about the Instigator is it's ability to kill off small creatures without getting killed himself, which also means that he'll probably stay around for longer (despite attracting more attention than the Lackey).All in all, the Lackey is a great card for a casual goblin deck, which needs to switch it's Raging Goblins out with something a little more dangerous. The price of the card is a bit high, but it's still low enough to be reasonable.
