It's basically a ground type Scald.

What format/rules are you playing with?

I'm pretty sure it's a good move to use, yes. It's good coverage on a lot of things that can learn it, and that Burn chance doesn't hurt anything. Pokemon like Charizard use it to cover weaknesses, and it's likely just a generally good move to have on a Pokemon. Burns can cripple a lot of Physical attackers, unless they have Guts + Facade, in which case you're pretty much dead.

Hope I helped!

It is a pretty good move to use in competitive Pokemon. The major downside (This is with all of the DLC moves) it isn't given to enough Pokemon. The move itself is excellent but most of the Pokemon that would use it cannot learn it.

This is all just my opinion though.
