a 4/4 for 4 mana with trample is already good for me.

Historians will look back on this card in twenty years and say, "Volatile Rig, well, that is when Gambling Deck Wins got its start."

Very neat.
4 mana for a 4/4 trample is good.
The fact that it has the chance to blow everything up is awesome.
I think I will have lots of fun with this thing.

Too much chance.

However, with Krark's Thumb (obviously), it becomes a little more viable.

The flavour is really nice and understandable, though.

This card can be phenomenal in constructed if you build around it, but probably not too exciting otherwise.

First of all, this card is super annoying for your opponent. Unless they have a 0/5+ creature to block with, there's a risk it will wipe out most of their critters when they do. If they don't like that possibility, they have to let it through and take 4. And they can't chump it, or else they take trample damage plus the detonation risk. And they have to make this decision every turn. I love the dynamic.

But it doesn't have to be annoying for you -- put a lot of undying and indestructible creatures in your deck (Warden of the Wall is pretty good here). It fits quite nicely in the mana curve right below Stuffy Doll. Now your opponent has to decide whether to take 4 now, or risk taking 8 + trample when they block.

Play this in a Chance Encounter deck, maybe?

Hilarious! This will be so much fun in casual, especially if you have a way to recur it and a Pestilence

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
