Honestly there's no reason to sell yourself short by playing Scorching Spear. Browbeat is a much better option imo. Plus numerous amounts of spells that don't care who has what. Howling Mine, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Goblin Cadets, Vedalken Plotter, Shifting Borders, Donate.

I mean, you're not even running Harmless Offering....

And if you want "bad" just play stuff that does nothing period for them like Darksteel Relic.

Mogg Fanatic is more likely to trade down, so your opponent is more likely to block it rather than constantly take 1. Sure, in the early game you may get in for a few pings first, but against some of the popular decks - decks you're likely to play against - it's nearly useless. Stompy's T1 of Nettle Sentinel turns Mogg into a Scorching Spear. Goblin's T1 of Goblin Cohort or Lavastep Raider makes it the same. White Weenies could Spiritual Visit or Raise the Alarm in response to declaring attackers depending on play or draw. This forces you to either sac for damage (giving them free attackers on their next step) or trade 1-for-1 or 1/2-for-1 with no damage.

Goblin Fireslinger is meant to sit back and ping for one on EOT, not attack in. It requires your opponent to have removal for it to rid themselves of the threat.
