Goblin Sneak (1U181) Wiki

General Strategy

Seen sometimes in Moria swarm decks, Goblin Sneak is an example of a very cheap and weak minion. Its ability can help players who cycle through their decks quickly, as repeated uses allow the Shadow Player to set up a large force of Moria Orcs at the bottom of their deck, to unload at site 9. It also works very well with The Underdeeps of Moria, guaranteeing a goblin for its ability. Bear in mind though, that it reduces the effectiveness of Host of Thousands and They are Coming, as it removes Moria Orcs from the discard pile.
