The answer to such a question is conditional, anyway.

For some of us who don't have the luck (or the money) to own a Banefire, Demonfire is a good alternative, plus you don't have to pay more than 5 mana just to protect the blast from counters and damege prevention.

@Vinifera, mr_Trickster:
Also, Demonfire exiles a destroyed creature, whereas Banefire does not.

I think banefire is better, because you can still have a hand and not feel totally helpless with it.

Conditionally this is the most powerful blaze spell in the game. Very fun in a deck with 4 Everflowing Chalice.

Demonfire is better with aggressive decks, since they tend to run on low mana and low hand. Banefire is better for a tempo or control deck, slower but tends to get enough mana for a 5+ damage.

With that said, I think both are good in their own field. One clear advantage Demonfire has is that not only it exiles creatures it doesn't have to be 5+ to achieve its highest effect. However, such power comes at a requirement of empty hand, which isn't always the best thing (or the easiest) for non-aggressive decks.

Disintegrate is a great card anyway, so these powered up variants suit me just fine. 5/5
