I do put four of these in my goblin deck because of its nice synergy with goblin grenade.

I love how 4 of these guys and three perilous myr make my early game assault/defense as most players tend to avoid doing anything to either of them. Gives me plenty of time to set up my 3 mana liquimetal coating/crush land destruction combo. And a lot of land destruction on turn 3 and 4 can completely ruin anyone's game. I love these Arsonists.

Has anyone else heard rumors of him being carried over into the next core set?

Mudbutton Torchrunner's little brother. Use accordingly. For those of you saying this is worse than Mogg Fanatic, you are both right and wrong. From a mechanics point of view, yes, this card is worse because you can't sacrifice at any time. From a strategy standpoint, this ends up being a better card. When compared, your opponent will be more likely to take out a Mogg Fanatic than Goblin Arsonist if possible to deprive you of that sacrifice option later in the game. Goblin Arsonist, however, only deals the extra 1 damage when killed. If your opponent doesn't want that to happen, he just won't block the weakling. This is a difference that only really matters early in the game, as Mogg Fanatic is more useful in mid to late game. I would also say that Goblin Arsonist's art alone make him a better card, as I hated the art style of all the Mogg cards.

If you have something to sac him to, he might even be more handy than the good ol' Mogg Fanatic.
And he's most of the time better than Festering Goblin.

Oh, and he has an awesome flavor text as well - Goblins do not know about such a thing as responsibility, therefore Stan Lee's famous quote from Spiderman had to get changed to something more suited :D

Not a bad target for Goblin Grenade, if I do say so.

Mogg Fanatic... is that you? You fell down that cliff all the way into Zendikar, and now you're wearing some strange hedron hat?
