I miss the days of red being the second-best colour for countering! That said, Artifact Blast isn't a great example of a decent red counter anyway. I'd rather have Shatter, and there's a load of cards I'd rather have over Shatter in turn.

Great red sideboard. This could work as a little artifact defense for any red deck really considering that it only costs one red.

I love that this takes care of indestructible artifacts, though. It's the one advantage over shatter.

Definately useable against artificers. It's cheaper that Shatter and anyways you need more than just four anti-artifact spells and furthermore: the minute you need Shatterstorm, you've prabably have lost already.

While not that powerful, it is a red counterspell and it does stop silly cards before they enter play.

Not bad as a sideboard.

The flavor text reflects your comments perfectly stygimoloch....I wouldn't play this as well...

This card has become more and more valuable as time goes on. Back when it was printed there weren't many artifacts that you couldn't shatter to deal with.

Now with so many artifacts and artifact creatures with abilities like indestructible, hexproof and shroud floating about this card has become infinitely more valuable for sideboarding.
