Daily Card Redesign #125: Goblin Firestarter

Daily Card Redesign is a daily Magic: The Gathering design exercise where I randomly choose a card for the scenario of it being killed late during its own set's development. I design a replacement card that uses the same art, is the same color, is the same rarity, and has a name that, alphabetically, keeps it within the same collector number for the set.


I wanted this Goblin to be able to destroy a land upon entering the battlefield, but Ogre Arsonist already does that in the same set. So, I had to stick to damage. 

It looks like this guy is sneaking up on a tent and burning it up while someone inside is sleeping. Thus the reason why it damages tapped creatures (they're exhausted or otherwise distracted and not having the vigilance to notice that a Goblin is setting their encampment before it's too late and they get burned).
