Vial Smasher the Fierce is a legendary goblin berserker from Tarkir.[1]

The denizens of Tarkir know well with the destructive power of dragonfire, and Vial Smasher, a goblin of the Kolaghan clan, is no exception. Brash and fearless, she has spent a lifetime handling — and obviously smashing — vials of this dangerous substance.

In the old timeline, with another name, the Planeswalker Sarkhan Vol had considered her a clan-mate in the Mardu Horde and a friend. In that timeline she had been known as Ankle Shanker.[2]
