Good for limited at common. Helps red deal with creatures like Ichorclaw Myr.

Don't compare to Fire Imp - the imp can only hit creatures (and in fact actually has to shoot itself if there aren't any other creatures in play!).

A fairer comparison would be to Sparkmage Apprentice, Ghitu Slinger or Akoum Boulderfoot. (could also include Bogardan Hellkite and Inferno Titan in there, but why compare commons to mythics?) This guy is a two-power red creature for 2Red who has a shot at removing a 1-toughness utility creature, and if there are no good targets, he can at least ping your opponent once.

It's not exciting in the face of other creatures tied to removal, but in-block it will kill the mana myr (Palladium Myr aside), a good number of the evasive infect creatures, and other annoyances like Vedalken Certarch, Spin Engine o... (see all)

What a succulent flavour text, my saucy little komquat!

Sort of an Arc Trail on legs.

The flavour text disgusts me.

At 1Red we would have been actually nice because of his tribe.
But he's a 2/1 for 2Red with a single usage ping.. Too bad.

This card is not merely good in limited; if it goes later than fifth-ish pick, feel free to take it as a signal that red is open. While clearly not as devastating as Arc Trail, it is almost always a two-for-one. Solid common.

Almost always hit a plague stinger or ichorclaw myr at the pre-release. Not a bad option, but not a great one either.
