It's true that this card is not simply strictly worse than Lightning Bolt due to the synergy it offers with Goblin decks, although it is tempting to think of it as strictly worse. Really cool concept too.

What advantage does it get for being a Goblin subtype/card?

This works very well if Coat Of Arms is on the field.

I've had several games where I would have loved to have these in my deck instead of Lightning Bolt, but on the other hand, I've also had many games where I was glad that I chose to go with the Bolt instead of this... Hmm, perhaps I should simply run a single copy of this instead of a Lightning Bolt so I can search for it with Goblin Matron when/if necessary? But what if I draw this instead of a Lightning Bolt early on? Ugh, the headache

Great card, Run as a 1 of in Legacy Goblins for a little bit. Good to have to burn of a pesky Mutavault when you need to get there with a Piledriver.

literally only played because of tarmogoyf

I've seen this used in Legacy RUG Delver/Tempo Thresh decks just to get the Tribal card in the graveyard and make Tarmogoyf bigger.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
