The creature type that should not be!

They called them "Tim" because of Monty Python and the Holy Grails Tim the Enchanter. Watch the scene with him and youll see why. Pingers makes sense, I often call the act of tapping something for 1 direct damage a ping so...
Laser? What kind of name is that.... sigh, no respect for tradition.

So the Phyrexian Invasion caused cross-breeding between different species? I hope Earth never gets invaded by Phyrexians, or there may be "Donkey Humans"

Really wish those were two hybrid mana, I don't have any decent UR decks, but my Tim deck needs this bastard.

Merfolk Goblin? That raises more questions than answers.

Part of an interesting cycle of 2-mana enemy color gold common creatures in Apocalypse:

Gaea's Skyfolk - GreenBlue (Elf Merfolk)
Goblin Legionnaire - RedWhite (Goblin Soldier)
Llanowar Dead - BlackGreen (Zombie Elf)
Putrid Warrior - BlackWhite (Zombie Soldier - later Warrior was added)
Razorfin Hunter - BlueRed (Merfolk Goblin)

Invasion, the first expansion in the block, had a cycle of 2-mana friendly color gold common creatures, all of which had protection from their shared enemy color:

Galina's Knight - WhiteBlue (Merfolk Knight)
Llanowar Knight - GreenWhite (Elf Knight)
Shivan Zombie - BlackRed (Barbarian Zombie)
Vodalian Zombie - BlueBlack (Merfolk Zombie)
Yavimaya Barbarian - RedGreen (Elf Barbarian)

As for this card itself, it's pretty good. Not only is it one of the cheapest CMC Tims in the game... (see all)

This set comes with interesting cards for red/blue or green/blue or even red/green/blue merfolk decks, and don't forget Ceta Disciple.. Oh, and this card is to Prodigal Sorcerer + Prodigal Pyromancer, what Swerve is to Deflection + Shunt! :) By the way, many people on the internet think that it's a 2/2 creature because all other cards from this cycle are 2/2 creatures..

Gelectrode should come next turn, Crushing Pain might become handy

A lot of the good pingers are in both red and blue. You should consider making it a 2 colour deck so you get prodigal sorcerer
