This card is great because it allows red to draw cards, wich is not very common, possibly making a burn deck even faster. If you dont get the draw (or counterspelled) the guy just takes five damage for 3CMC wich is somewhat hot.

the alternative presented to my opponets makes it feel just as fun as SkullScorch. It almost always gets me the draw, but then again, it's nice to have some drawing ability in a red-green deck.

A lot of fun and a good concept, and the art actually made me skim the books, so 4.5 or maybe even 5/5

Good skill test card. You never want to give a burn deck more cards, but a noob would let them.

Underrated by experienced players and overrated by newer players. Viable in a casual red burn/Blightning.

Its not broken by any means, since drawing it later means your opponent chooses what's best for them. However as a third turn drop in a burn deck...that's just horrifying.

Hmmm...this could be really good in a red-white self-burn deck with Purity.
If they reprint this, though, they should have it draw more cards if no one pays up.

If your opponent is taking 5 for 2Red against burn than you shouldn't be losing.

This is the best drawer I've ever seen

The card got its ups and downs.
It's somehow a "win more" card. If your opponent is very low on life, and has no choice but letting you draw cards, then you'll most likely win no matter what you do.
If your opponent is though having the upper hand, it's a "lose more" card. He'll just take 5 damage and you're most likely back to topdeck mode.

In aggressive 1vs1 decks it's ok. In any format though where you start with more than 20 life (edh/commander, 2hg or whatnot) it sucks.

This is either a three cost harmonize in red or a superior char with no side effects - This card is BROKEN!
