Oh, and for the record, I don't think Goblin Recruiter is worth banning. Thoughts?

The combo that Goblin Recruiter sets up is partially nixed by the rules of the format, I wouldn't mind unbanning it. Food Chain would have to be the Noble, with some Lotus Petals to play it. Since the combo pieces are mostly uncommons, I think the worst it could do is set up Goblin Ringleader on top followed by a ton of Mogg Fanatics or something, maybe a Goblin Lackey or Goblin Warchief for good measure? It would certainly be much less reliable if you aren't running four copies.

That sounds convoluted enough, I just think that a pure aggro goblin deck would perform more consistently. I'll look into the Food Chain variant, but it doesn't sound terribly reliable. Either way, I doubt that Goblin Recruiter needs to be banned. I'll decide when I start playtesting against other decks, and I'll throw a Food Chain list together today sometime.

Didn't get around to it yesterday, maybe today I will look into Food Chain.
