So many flavourful ways to give him a good end result from the training montage they're showing us here!

->let him heft that rock with ease
->give him some drug-based body paint
->send him on a quest for his master
->have that volcano he's climbing rub off on him

(but yeah, KyoDarkFire's suggestion kicks the crap out of my flavour)

Well just get a Darksteel Axe and you're good to go

A bajillion years later and he's still plugging away. Go little guy! You can do it!

This guy's pretty damn nice with wither or infect. My friend slapped grafted exoskeleton on this guy and was murdering my guys for four -1/-1 counters every turn. It was quite brutal.

Livewire Lash? Strata Scythe?

Having included him in a sealed deck with only 2 pieces of equipment that'd get him to 4 power (Darksteel Axe and Livewire Lash), I was very happy with his performance. He needs the drawback because 4 power each turn is pretty insane - there aren't a great many creatures that can survive that sort of damage, at least without being good uncommons/rares or costing a heap of mana.

I'd always be wary about picking him in a draft though... again, he really needs 2+ pieces of equipment to feel safe with him (or a repeatable buff like Trigon of Rage).

How serendipitous that this pre-print managed to come back as a Spikeshot Goblin shoutout!

Why has no one mentioned sword of vengeance? He really wants power buff and vigilance.

Performed better than I expected in a draft I did recently.
As has been mentioned, both Darksteel Axe and Trigon of Rage get this guy up and running pretty well.
And if your opponent manages some removal, Necrotic Ooze really likes seeing this guy in your yard.

@KyoDarkFire: Get an Obsidian Battle-Axe and you're even better to go!
