This and Goblin Grenade being Standard legal at the same time strikes me as an opportunity.

Seems really good.

So many card's in this set rely on sacrificing, or otherwise putting your own creatures into your graveyard that there's a good chance that your opponent will set up the morbid condition for you, without you having to use any additional cards. It's very disappointing to sacrifice a creature to Stitcher's Apprentice in order to have a creature to exile for Stitched Drake just to have it destroyed by Brimstone Volley. At least I still had my Homunculus Token (I wish I could Auto-Card to it).

T1: Mountain, Furnace Scamp.
T2: Mountain, swing and sac for 4. Goblin Arsonist
Here's where you can play Goblin Grenade, or Infernal Plunge into this.
And that's just a god hand.
Point being: this card is nuts. 5 damage at instant speed is crazy. Morbid is simply in red.

Seems good but not too crazy. Red gets 4 damage for three mana all the time, so this is probably about right.

twice at the prerelease I cast this with the mana from an infernal plunge

At first, I looked at this and though, "Meh, too much like Lava Axe with a condition." And then I realized that Lava Axe doesn't suck because it deals five damage, it sucks because it deals five damage, costs 5, is a sorcery, and can only target creatures.

I don't see Morbid as too difficult to activate in burn decks, especially with plenty of weak utility creatures running around out there. Burn away one with a Geistflame or Chandra, the Firebrand or 2-for-1 with an Arc Trail, then drop 5 damage on your opponent's Steel Hellkite (or on their face). Probably not going to be a 4-of by any means, since it's competing with plenty of strong burn like Volt Charge, Arc Trail, and Shrine of Burning Rage, but in a creature-rich meta, this is huge value for a common.

That's a lot of damage for 3 mana. I like it.
