Sure it's power and toughness are adequate, and its ability is useful, but at 5 mana, it's going to hit the table pretty late. There are much better vampires out there. Points for being common though.

Should have kept Slith vampires in {R}, in my opinion.

A solid common Vampire.

It's a black vampire with red vampire's ability. ie Bloodcrazed Neonate, Falkenrath Marauders, etc.

4/3 for 5 that is more than likely going to be a 6/5 or higher with Rakish Heir and Bloodline Keeper.

Solid common.

SkaerKrow, you are complaining about a basic creature on the curve, with an extra ability and powerful tribe, and calling it an "expense?"
You are spoiled, my friend. This is a fair creature, and frankly, a pretty good one.

I'm not sure how you determined that Zombie Goliath was under the curve.
It's a black common with no discernible drawbacks. Considering this, it is entirely on the curve. It's like telling me Canyon Minotaur is below the curve.
It isn't below the curve, it IS the curve.
This card is also a common, and has a dangerous ability to boot.
It's not below the curve on any count, unless you consider nearly all commons to be significantly below the curve.

It's Zombie Goliath with a somewhat superfluous ability tacked on at the expense of being a part of black's best tribe. No thanks.

Even now, with Vampire Tribal getting a lot more support thanks to DKA, it's still a deeply mediocre and overpriced card.

A tough thug guaranteed to make your opponent cringe when it hits. "Great. Two Bloodcrazed Neonates, a Rakish Heir, a Blood Seeker (thanks), and now this. Fan. Tastic."

It's not mindblowing, but it's a serviceable common with two relevant creature types. In BlackBlue it can easily pick up evasion and get through a lot. Or, say I decide to put him in my mono-black vampire deck, I could just go the Whispersilk Cloak route.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
