I agree with the above statements, and also the art is really awesome. Seeing this card and the new goblin lord from M10 made me seriously consider jumping on the goblin bandwagon.

If you run this guy in a goblin deck and it hasn't won you games, you ain't using it right.

Think of it this way, turn 2 you play Warren Instigator. Your opponent has no removal so summons a chump blocker, or worse, something that would eat Instigator alive. Turn 3 you play Shortcutter. Blocker rendered useless and you have a chieftain/siege-gang commander for free.

Other situations such as your opponent having that 1 monster thats getting in the way. Chances are that 1 blocker could stop you winning the game this turn, and we all know that goblins need to win in as few turns as possible. This guy can render that blocker useless and you can win there and then.

Throw in the fact he's a common, cheap CMC goblin, there is no reason whatsoever to not run him in a goblin deck, or any other red aggro deck for that matter.

Probably the coolest looking goblin in standard. Not to mention he has a really underestimated affect , especially in goblin-based decks.

A solid Goblin....that can give you a free attack, well there is nothing wrong with that.

M14 reprint. Should be interesting in Limited, though this guy won't see much play otherwise.

I actually really like this card.
Think of it this way:
Stun = Suckage
Goblin Piker = Suckage
Combine both of these into one card that costs the same as either one? Sounds like card advantage to me!

its not card advantage, since stun draws you a card, so that the stun/piker-"combo" consumes only one card. Its still double the cost, so this is rather tempo (advantage).

Awesome Art, His Power Is Str8 And Your Lifelink/Wall/Token Can't Block.

Run 4 of these in a Burn deck and so long opponent's health!
