insane in a burn deck. his damage is not the hindered by hostility. Those 2 cards would make an insane combo. I'am currently working on my vintage burn deck including these 2 and Goblin Electromancer.

@Osprey_93: Unfortunately, it doesn't work like you think it does at all. Copying a spell is not the same as casting a spell - therefore, none of those cards will trigger off of a Reverberate loop.

This guy and Lobber Crew could potentially rule a multiplayer table.
Pair with Sigil of Sleep and/or Curiosity and you have lockdown, burn, and card advantage!

This guy wants to play by himself with nothing but spells so don't clutter the deck up with like minded creatures, all you will be doing is thinning the win conditions.

I will definitely be adding 3x of this guy to my counter burn deck, and I see him being a long time spell in my deck.

Now I can take out a few damage dealing cards like lightning bolt or pillar of flame to throw in some new additions that I could not have in the past. So many new possibilities open up to me with this guy, and he will be a great companion to my 3x Chandra's Spitfire's and 3x Chandra's Phoenix's.

I run 3 in my RDW and he does wonders. Suddenly Bolts are hitting for 5 and Pillars are exiling creatures and doing 2 to the face. This dude is absolute gold.

Turning a Gutshot into a 'free' Lightning bolt and a Lightning Bolt into a one R Lava Axe...Yeah, that won't get out of hand.

Besides dieing to doom blade, this really trumps burning vengeance. Apples and oranges maybe, but this will smack a player when you cast and flashback a spell.

"Strictly better" is not a term I can use for permanents of two different types... but compare against Pyromancer's Swath...

And then Young Pyromancer came out and the chances of this guy seeing Legacy play went down the toilet.

Not fair!

Under normal circumstances you can fight a burn deck on the premise you trade cards for cards, that is each creature they burn cost them a spell, and who ever runs out of spells/creatures first loses. Some effects, like overload go around this, but you normally play for those with cost or timing. This means that your shock not only takes out my one drop but does 2 damage to me, giving huge card advantage. Besides, its a 2/2 bulk for 3 mana which when your entire board has been burnt, and you have taken 8 damage from him, is a decent threat.

Can make even the simplest of burn decks very scary.

@frozone: Reverberate, same as most spell copying effects, doesn't actually cast anything extra. Guttersnipe only triggers with cast spells, not copies.

@legoman4000: Yes, his ability triggers when you cast Unsummon, and he's not removed from the battlefield until the spell resolves. He'll deal the damage in that case.

I had a similar question: would his ability trigger when he was sacrificed to cast Goblin Grenade? A judge answered on a forum that it wouldn't trigger, as he was removed from the battlefield as a part of the spellcasting process, before triggers are evaluated.

If you're running burn or Izzet, it's almost stupid not to play this gentleman and his evil cousin Young Pyromancer

The one time this card backfired on me:

My UR Niv-Mizzet EDH deck had this on the field against my girlfriend's Michiko EDH deck with Michiko on the field.

I couldn't cast an instant or sorcery without sacrificing a permanent :\

This guy and Hidden Strings is ridiculous. Also, alongside Goblin Electromancer and any burn spells, things quickly get out of hand.
I was playing my friend, had 6 life, 3 available mana, this guy and an electromancer. Friend had a 6/6 flier and was on 20 life.
I won thanks to this guy, Hidden Strings, flashing back a Think Twice and playing the rest of my cards out :D
