Wow, this guy packs such a punch.
Gives red even more great tools.

Also is perfect for UR decks, since Vapor Snag will give it enough cover for 5 damage on turn 2.
UR for a lava Axe, and a return to hand spell? GIMME!!!!

Turn 1: Furnace Scamp
Turn 2: Attack with Furnace Scamp, Tainted Strike

5 infect turn 2.
Just saiyan.

The great thing about this guy is that you ALWAYS want to attack on turn 2. Even he does get blocked, he's usually taking a creature with him. Most of the other one drops in standard have one toughness and your opponent is most likely not going to want to block with him. And don't forget you're playing red, so a turn two Arc Trail will most likely clear the way for this to get through.

Great one drop with a neat little ability. Love to use with Goblin Tunneler for a good 4 damage. Would be better with haste. 4/5

Kicks my friend's mill deck in the balls. He never has early creatures, and 4 damage to the face in turn 2 hurts badly.

Good Morbid trigger. All around solid card.

Adorable and effective! Goodness, what'll they think of next?

I'm totally on this little guy's band wagon. I first used him in a R/W Warcry deck to send him through for an initial 2 or 3 and then pop him for three more. My friends quickly wised up and started blocking him but it didn't really do them a lot of good because they just had to let something else through. That deck was such a menace that I had to take it apart. I've used him in two other decks since.

The second was a B/R sacrifice deck where all the creatures did damage when they died. Starting off turn one with him really gets you 1/5th closer to the goal and triggering Tragic Slip doesn't hurt either.

His most recent role is in a mono-red Innistrad vampire deck. Seems weird but put a Furor of the Bitten on him. Your opponent will squirm every time he swings and will do typically whatever it takes to chump block him if they don't have removal ready. You can use him to keep your opponents board clean for at least the first three turns. Then ... (see all)

Should this have been a Goblin? I guess the flavor called for Beast, but dang if that isn't the smallest beast I've ever seen.
