Goblin King

Goblin King is an interesting monster. With terrible stats of 0/0, it is searchable by Witch, Sangan, and Tomato; and being Level 1, he can be easily metamorphosed into Thousand Eyes Restrict.

That said, the effects are pretty good. If there's another Fiend on the field (which there had better be if you intend to play this guy at all), he can't be attacked. Similar to the Bone Towers, Captains, and Dragons, two of these = your opponent cannot attack either one.

The second effect is decent; this card's ATK is equal to the number of (other) Fiends on the field x1000. Have two Goblin Kings on the field? They'll each be at 1000. Summon this after Giant Germing your opponent? He'll be at 2000. Field full of Fiends? 4000. For a Level 1, that isn't bad.

The fact that you really need at least other Fiends on the field for this to be effective does hurt its playability, but in the right deck, Goblin King could be a very good pick.

Typical tournament deck: 1.5/5
Fiend deck: 4/5
OVERALL RATING: 2.8/5
