More important than the higher mana investment required to kill this thing: every Bolt, Doom Blade, Path to Exile, etc, used on this thing, is one less your opponent has to use on Master Transmuter. It is possible to ignore it, but multiples of this thing can really ruin a deck's day. Five damage a pop is nothing to scoff at either.

I don't see the downside here.

If i were to play this and my opponent had 3 mana open, could he play cancel or not? When does his static effect begin to take place?

Powering these out T1 is one of my favorite things to do in Legacy: "You skip your turn and take 5 damage."

Aside from that; I really really hope they make a Thorn of Amethyst version of this guy; even if it costs {3} or more.

Library, his effect only starts after he resolves and enters the battlefield. Your opponent can freely counter him (or do any instant effect for that matter) to prevent him from resolving.
