Red doesn't get 2/2s for 2 at common without a drawback. Niether does black, so this isn't that underpowered. It does essentially cost RB though, with all the drawbacks that multicolor entails. Better commons for the same niche: Shivan Zombie, Gobhobbler Rats, Goblin Outlander, Frazzled Editor.

Fun fact, the bowl in the bottom right of the picture has the Mask of Yawgmoth symbol on it.

Shouldn't be there. Possibly an artist oversight, or a recycled picture from an earlier commission.

I agree with @Rubber, it isn't that bad of a card. 2/2 for 1Red with a "slight" drawback. Not anything but casual but still gets 3/5 in my book maybe 2.5.
Barbarian Outcast is arguably better than :
Goblin Brigand
Goblin Raider
Goblin Furrier?
Hulking Goblin
Ironclaw Orcs
Mogg Jailer
Yellow Scarves Troops
and these cards are being rated in the 2 to 3 range. I just feel that these barbarian Beast Hybrid thingies are getting a bad rap.

@rubber I like how you added Frazzled Editor to that list. (But it's true, he's currently by far the best 2/2 for 1Red.)

Also, there can be a small advantage in costing 1Red instead of BlackRed, yet requiring you to control a swamp:
Nightscape Familiar would be this guy's best buddy, since it allows you to cast him for Red.

@rubber: you speak the depressing truth when you say "...at common". Wizards really seems intent on making a two-tiered system of magic, where with a few exceptions cards that are rare are cards that are good.

This card has good flavour, shame to see it ruined like this. Should have had a kird ape bonus to give it +1/+0 if you control a swamp, rather than having to sac it if you don't.

Huh... maybe that bowl was used for some Phyrexian rituals and is leftover from the invasion? Who knows.

Pro Tip:

Round 1: Swamp
Round 2: Mountain + this
Round 3: ?
Round 4 : Profit!
