You are almost certainly not going to be hardcasting Pyroblast as Hot Streak still exists, so all you'd have to do is cast Flamestrike at some point, and honestly it is unlikely that the addition of a flamestrike DOT to Combustion will be worth the cast time outside of AOE situations where you would be casting flamestrike anyway.Also you can cast it when ignite is present and ignite no longer procs exclusively from crits but from every fire spell you cast excluding Scorch so it's not like you actually have to do either, you'll just do more damage if you have Pyroblast up too.With that in mind, Combustion has actually barely changed at all. The only difference is that Living Bomb is not affected and Impact does not require a proc (it seems pretty unlikely that you will be spamming Inferno Blast on cooldown).In a situation where you would want the tiny extra damage provided by Flamestrike to multiply it by spreading it to adds, you would already have Flamestrike down to AOE said adds, it is pretty much the same spell we are casting now.The mana change... shouldn't really affect you at all? It's more a healing thing and all it means is that Arcane doesn't have the silly double-benefit from Intellect that it has at the moment.Blizzard are going to balance you so that you don't have to worry about Mana anyway, hell there's even a talent that means Evocation has no cooldown at all.
