Meh, I happen to like the more interesting interactions with Echo. You need some of both; those designed to be multiple cards by giving you options for paying/not paying, and those that are simplistic and simply a creature that trades later tempo for earlier tempo.

Not the best card, but I like it, decent in an aggro green deck safe against most burn.

In my opinion, this is the way that Echo should work in its simplest, purest form. We have a reasonably useful creature for a discounted cost on the grounds that you are paying the remaining cost a turn later. Of course, if you don't pay it, the "repo men" send it to your graveyard. No fancy alternative costs, no "it is better to let the creature die so its 'leaves battlefield' ability can trigger". Just a creature you pay for in instalments.
On its own merits, though, this isn't a terribly good card: if it had Reach or one of those "this creature cannot be blocked except by ____" abilities, I think it would be more flavourful and more useful. Consider that for the same CMC (albeit paid on one turn instead of over 2) you can get a Giant Spider (3G cost), which is a 2/4 with Reach instead of vanilla.
Anyway, I find the card reasonably interesting, but not great on its own merits.

That's really cheap for a 2/4, and it can take a LOT of abuse.
