This was often in sideboards back when Mirrodin was in standard, when 90% of decks was full of artifacts and artifact lands. Decks would splash red and cast this with Seething Song to get the RRR requirement. In a lot of match-ups that was basically like playing Obliterate, except your opponent's board was gone while you had a 5/5 dragon that won the game in the next couple of turns.

MagicMarker, your buddy is being a dick. Furnace Dragon only removes artifacts that are currently in play. Cards that do things to other cards only affect cards that are in play, unless they say otherwise.

Next time he tries to pull something like that, play Terror and start going through his hand and library looking for a creature. If he complains, tell him that it doesn't specifically say that the creature it destroys has to be in play.

If you want to get really technical about it, the "artifacts" in your hand, library, and graveyard aren't actually "artifacts", they are "artifact cards", so they couldn't be removed unless the Dragon referenced cards as well as artifacts. Take a close look at cards like Zombify; it targets a "creature card," not a "creature", because if the card isn't in play, it's not a creature. The same goes for artifacts.

just use it with Mishra's Bauble and Urza's Bauble and other similar thingies. Cheap dragon, deck thinning, exiling opponent's artifacts, boom

Guys, guys. Yes, the fact that it has affinity for artifacts and removes them from the game when it enters the battlefield is slightly contradictory, however....it also exiles your opponents artifacts as well. Just use it with artifacts that are excellent early game, but run out of steam, things like Tumble Magnet...then cast this late game when exiling your magnet doesn't really matter.

This is one of those underrates cards which has a very specific purpose.
My favorite memory:
Had a guy in my high school class who had a huge mouth...talking a lot of s*** about how impossibly awesome his artifact deck was, how it's never been beat, yadda, yadda... (around early 2007)
So I took on the challenge with my dragons deck (Without Furnace Dragon initially), only to find that he was a bullheaded idiot who had two things very wrong, giving him tremendous advantages: first, he said lands were spells....(?), and second, he vastly broke the four card limit with the blue artifact land for use with his affinity cards (Forget what it's called.)
His general strategy was to pile up tons of artifacts and throw cranial plating on a trampler.
I could not for the life of me convince him how much of an idiot he was. I went with his trash-street rules and lost...and not even by a whole lot, thanks to a turn four 14/14 Kilnmouth Dragon. Gotta love it... (see all)

Oh wow, I didn't want to believe people as stupid as MagicMarker's friend played magic.

A very, very strange card. Rewards you for playing lots of artifacts by...eating all of your artifacts.

Omnomnom. Don't forget to feed your dragon, folks. Or this guy will come to your house and eat all your metal stuff.

The reason this card was printed was for the Affinity mirror match. Nearly every affinity player had four copies in his sideboard. Why? Because in the mirror match, this card was an insta-win. In that situation, this card effectively read "Remove all permaments from the game. You get a 5/5 Dragon."
