Thanks. I use Arc Lightning, which is better. But thanks for the feedback!

Also for #2, it's only being targeted by Arc Lightning once (even though you're assigning the full damage to it), so it of course only triggers once. Less intuitive would be Seeds of Strength which would actually target the creature multiple times (if you chose to do so). Even in this case, Heroic only triggers once because the event of casting a spell that targets Satyr Hoplite is only happening once, even though the event of targeting Satyr Hoplite happens three times.

It would only count as 1 target, so heroic would only trigger once.
Equipping an equipment is not a spell. Instants, sorceries and auras would be the spells that can cause heroic.
Heroic triggers for each creature that is targeted. So your Hoplite will get +1/+1 when you cast Prey Upon targeting it. If you cast Solidarity of Heroes and Strived to target 2 Satyr Hoplite, then both creatures Heroic triggers would activate.
Heroic would go on the stack after Prey Upon, so it would resolve first.

Hello. I apologize if this thread is in the wrong section. This section seemed the most suitable.
Let's assume I have a Satyr Hoplite (1/1, no counters or other buffs yet) on the battlefield, and an Arc Lightning on my hand. I play Arc Lightning and choose to deal 1 damage to my Satyr Hoplite, and two damage to the opposing player. Will my Arc Lightning kill my Satyr before his Heroics effect triggers (which puts a +1/+1 counter on him)? Or will the Heroics effect trigger first and make him survive?
(#1 cont.) If the answer to the above question is Yes: Will assigning all three of the damage points trigger Heroic three times? Or will it only work once per Arc Lightning?
Does equipping trigger Heroic? (Such as: Grappling Hook)
Let's say I have another Satyr Hoplite on the battlefield, and the opponent has some random creature out as well. I cas Prey Upon from my hand, and choose my Satyr and the opponents creature as targets. -Will this (Prey Upon) trigger Heroic, causing my Satyr to become stronger?
If the answer to the above question is Yes: Will my Satyr become stronger in time for the fight? (Meaning of the opponent had an 1/1 creature out; my Satyr would kill the other creatuer and survive)
Thanks in advance. =)

Not being the most experienced player my self, I can't say too much with confidence. I was gonna say Harnessed Lightning might not be the best choice for lack of energy, but it looks like you'd have enough to do some damage. The other two cards mentioned are pretty much equally as good in the right situation(from what I think). Wish I had more experience/knowledge to help you out! I know Arc Lightning isn't that great of a card, but maybe having more options to target would add some versatility? Also I guess it isn't Standard Legal either. Just a thought.
If you'd wanna check out and maybe up-vote a deck of mine you like, or give some suggestions, it would be much appreciated!

I always love seeing dirt-cheap yet fun decks, like this one. I would change some things, though.
Welkin Tern and Flamerush Rider seem really out of place, and even just bad. Maybe add either Pia and Kiran Nalaar or Pia Nalaar? I think Reclusive Artificer would be a better choice than Arc Lightning, too.
Overall, awesome deck. Nice job.

Any suggestions as to what I should get rid of? I'm thinking some of the more useless little shits Frenzied Goblin, Raging Goblin, and Mogg War Marshal Maybe get rid of Arc Lightning and Downhill Charge too.
Also is there any sort of Goblin Harbinger cards like there are for some of those Lorwyn tribes? (Treefolk, Elementals, Elves, etc.)
