This name generator will send you 15 random goblin names that are fit for the Magic: The Gathering Universe. Goblins are small humanoids with sometimes sharp and vicious look. Typically in mountainous regions, they prefer to make their homes underground. They prefer to be regarded as pests with low intelligence, but are not to be underestimated. Their sheer numbers and a certain knack for objects and tinkering can make them dangerous in battle.Goblin names, due to the repeated elements in certain names like 'Tok-Tok' and 'Ben-Ben' they appear to be sharp sounding and a little humorous. Other names are more rough sounding, like 'Krark' and 'Crixizix,' and I've made sure that both forms are more frequently described in this generator than others. There are still plenty of standard card names to choose from, so if you're not after the personal name of a goblin you still have plenty to choose from.

Goblins are one of my favorite characters from Magic: The Gathering (MTG). The original Standard Format version, Gorgon the Chained, is the strongest card in the whole set, but more importantly for obvious reasons. This past weekend, Pro Tour Saviorsaria, was the first big international professional tournament taking place since the recent release of Dominaria's new Magic: The Gathering set, Magic: The Gathering Planechase. The main player at this top event was a red and green goblin decking around with the newest flying planeswalker, Chandra Nalaar, who was also on her way to winning the tournament.
Goblins aren't as popular as they once were in Magic, because while they were originally a staple in Standard format, their strength is now greatly diminished in the new Planeswalkers. Chandra is a powerful Planeswalker and she doesn't want to steal cards from players like Sylvan Caryatid, which is why she tends to play the long game. Goblins are usually known for being greedy, so when a player has to discard a huge chunk of their deck to get Chandra off of a Planeswalkers, they tend to be upset. Chandra on the other hand is much less concerned about a card like Blood Moon as long as she gets a Chandra's Phoenix. While Chandra is playing a very strong Planeswalker, it looks like Goblins are going to be out of a job for a long time in Standard formats.
The new Planeswalkers have made it so that the deck that a player would use for Standard would be pretty much the same as the one that they use in Modern. There are some exceptions though, like a few decks that might have something like a Goblin tribal build. Some decks that don't even have to run Goblins anymore are using planeswalkers that are blue or green as their mana sinks. These types of decks use a card like Stasis Snare, so that they can have a low impact on the game, while they still play the cards that are important to win the game. So, even if Goblins are no longer playing an important role in Standard, they're still a strong option in Modern and other formats where people might be playing more than one color of mana. The new cards have opened up a whole new way for new decks to make their mark in Magic: The Gathering.
