Thick-Skinned Goblin can take the burn and free up his echo for the next turn, but you'll need seven mana open to play him and protect the goblin.

Also, the Hellion's art is superb.

Echo makes it a hard card to get into play and keep early game, but its ability makes up for that.

Echo almost balances this guy. Still, if you're gonna trick him in, you're doing it to sweep the board, not to get a 6/6.

Vigor, puts 4 +1/+1 counters on each creature you control and blows everything else up!

In casual cube, facing down a soon-to-be lethal Skaab Goliath, I held this and and one other card. Topdecked the Plains I needed, and cast the Hellion and ... Swift Justice!
I gained 20 life, paid the echo, then followed with my next spell: Deadeye Navigator, with 1Blue open. GG! :D

Make a deck full of red creatures with pro red already. Fun.

Not strictly better than Mizzium Mortars' overload- Mortars hits only your opponent's board.

Also, seeing a reprint in Duel Decks; Heros vs Monsters!

Crater Hellion is an awesome board Sweeper!

Great creature with awesome artwork. He's on of my list of greatest creatures of all time.

Strictly better than mizzium mortars' overload effect (but thanks to the non-overload effect, not strictly better than mizzium mortars).

EDIT: Whoops, missed echo. Still awesome though.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
